Out of Tune

You can't sleep, your energy levels are low, and you're finding it harder to make it through your day. The specialists insist there's nothing wrong, but you innately feel like something's out of tune. Maybe it's time to call the Chiropractor.

D.D. Palmer, the Father of Chiropractic, recognized that repetitive physical, chemical, and emotional stress can alter the normal 'tone' within a person's Nerve System (a.k.a. Subluxation). This persistent irritation can lead to poor physical, mental, and emotional performance. The solution? Restore normal tone to the Nerve System with specific, Chiropractic adjustments and better health will naturally follow!

Health is the 'music' that plays when all your cells, tissues, and organs vibrate perfectly in unison - orchestrated by a finely tuned Nerve System. If you're feeling sluggish, weak, and tired, a trip to the Chiropractor may just be the thing YOU need to get back in key.

Chiro-Fools Day

In a 180 degree turnaround decision, the Chiropractic profession has chosen to abandon its tradition of drugless healthcare in favor of a failing, yet mainstream model used throughout the United States today.

"Ex" chiropractors around the globe now acknowledge patients do not possess an innate intelligence, capable of orchestrating all functions of Life - and that this intelligence in no way or form, flows in the nerve system. Interference with this 'ethereal' force does not put the body at risk for failed health. The only hope for mankind is to be managed by drugs and the drugs to treat the side effects from the drugs.

The rogue, Principled Chiropractic movement has finally come to its senses. Only the doctor in the white coat, backed by 'evidence based' propaganda, has the answers to Life and Healing. If you can't drug it, numb it, or cut it out - you can't fix it... regardless of the miracles your neighbor experienced at the quack's office down the road.

Happy Chiropractic Fools Day (hope you enjoyed the satire)!

Innate and the Three Bears

Remember the lead character in Goldilocks and the Three Bears? She didn't settle for too hot, or too cold - too hard, or too soft. She kept trying until she found what was JUST RIGHT. When it comes to fighting disease, your body innately strives for the same thing.

Disease is nothing more than your body performing too much or too little of something. If your thyroid is UNDER active, you have hypothyroidism. If your lungs OVER react to dust in the air, you experience asthma. If your heart pumps too HARD,  you have high blood pressure. Health on the other hand is when your body is clearly directed by its inner wisdom to produce, adapt, regenerate, secrete, eliminate, filter, and metabolize to a degree that's JUST RIGHT.

Chiropractors recognize that no doctor, pharmacy, or research lab on the planet can live up the awesome task of keeping EVERYTHING in your body working JUST RIGHT. Only innate intelligence, the immeasurable genius within you, is capable of handling that job. The best we can do as Chiropractors is to remove the stress that gets in its way. When we do, we know innate will only settle for what's JUST RIGHT inside you.

After the Fall

According to the developer of Chiropractic, BJ Palmer, a clumsy slip and fall may seem like a small thing. But the cascade of events that follow could potentially lead to bigger problems down the road.

The slip, however insignificant, creates an unexpected jar to the spine... vertebrae become misaligned (subluxated)... nerve pressure ensues... tissues become starved of instruction... malfunction follows... sickness develops... potential is robbed... and the course of Life is altered. All from an inconsequential, embarrassing moment in time - unless remedied soon after the event.

No matter how minor the slip, your Chiropractor would rather evaluate you right away to be safe. Not only can they adjust you back into alignment if necessary, correcting Subluxations sooner can thwart disruptions in your Life (and the Lives of others) later. After the fall, do us all a favor and get checked.

Maintaining the Goose

We all have excuses for not getting to the Chiropractor more often - too many appointments, too many responsibilities, to many 'you fill in the blanks.' You're the golden goose and you have little time and LOTS of people to keep happy. But what you don't realize is those 'I'm too busy' excuses are the EXACT reasons why you need to take better care of your spine and Nerve System.

Every activity you perform starts as a mental impulse in your brain that travels through your spinal cord and nerves until it reaches its final destination. Nothing happens in your body without FIRST being patterned in the Nerve System. From the simple act of getting up from a chair to more complex ones like balancing your books, everything you do in Life is first done in your Nerve System then executed in your body. And the more clear your Nerve System is kept with regular maintenance Chiropractic care, the more efficient and effective those jobs become.

A full plate is no excuse for missing adjustments. If you have co-workers and family depending on you, you owe it to them AND yourself to maintain a clear nerve system so you can always perform to your best. A well adjusted goose lays more golden eggs.

The Scale Moves Slowly

If you jump on the scale after every healthy meal you ate, looking for an immediate change, you're going to drive yourself nuts. Doing good things for your body is good - but those good things may not register noticeable changes right away. The same goes for your adjustments.

It's common for clients to hop off the chiropractic table after an adjustment, looking for some instant, measurable change in the way they feel... and there are times when some relief is experienced. However, to expect an immediate resolution of a chronic complaint from one adjustment is no different than expecting to be 10 pounds lighter after just one low carb meal.

Patience is your friend and time is the road you must both travel to reap the health reward you hope for. It takes work and time for your body to make the best of each Life enhancing adjustment. Be consistent and faithful with your care and you'll eventually experience the lasting results we know you're capable of getting.

Launching Your Care

In its heyday, the space shuttle would generate nearly 8 million pounds of thrust just to lift itself off the launch pad into the atmosphere. Once beyond the earth's gravitational pull, it didn't require as much effort to stay in space and could effortlessly cruise at 17,500 mph with a fraction of that power. The same can be said for your Chiropractic care plan.

The start of any health endeavor requires more effort - in Chiropractic that means more visits in the beginning to break from from the gravity of dis-ease and build forward momentum. Once free from the 'pull' of poor habits and chronic illness, it requires less effort to keep you aloft.

It takes more effort to get off the initial care launch pad than it does to stay in a healthy orbit. If you want to get results, expect to put more work in at the beginning of your care. Your chiropractic team is ready to help you along the way... just stick with the mission plan and you'll reach your destination.

A Chiropractic Valentine

There's a lot to love about Chiropractic - the science of nerve function, the art of correcting posture and spinal alignment. But the best part is the philosophy that gives meaning to it all.

Physicians focus on body parts, psychologists analyze thoughts, and clergy tend to matters of the spirit. But no one profession touches them all... your physical health, mental health, and spiritual health like Chiropractic. You can't experience any of these without a CLEAR nerve system. When Chiropractors restore normal spinal alignment and clear away nerve stress, your ability to express physical, mental, and spiritual health is simply better.

Love and Life thrive where things are aligned. The resolution of pain and restoration of function are nice side effects of Chiropractic - the thing we love the most, however, is when you become whole again. Have a Happy and Healthy Valentine's week!

Limitation of Thoughts

Posted: February 4, 2019
By: Dr. Kevin

Principle #24 in Chiropractic states that the innate healing ability within us is limited by the matter it has to work with. In other words, your body's ability to repair itself is only as good as the building material at its disposal - the right nutrients, DNA, etc. But healing limitations don't only come from matter.

Limitations of understanding and belief can also stop the healing process in its tracks. How skeptical are you (or your family and friends) of your innate ability to heal? Doubt and unbelief are just as powerful at hindering the healing process as a poor diet. When it comes to recovering from sickness and dis-ease, simply "hoping to get better" won't cut it. You need to really believe it, in order to achieve it.

What you think about, you bring about. Your state of health is more a product of your thoughts and beliefs than you realize. Make sure you're cultivating concepts of health, faith, and resolve that support the work your Chiropractor is doing - instead of surrounding yourself with unbelievers and naysayers.

X's, O's, and Time

"The Packers never lost a game... we just ran out of time." - Vince Lombardi. Coach Lombardi's quote sums up his unwavering belief in his team's ability to win every game, if given enough time to execute their winning plan. Chiropractors hold a similar, unwavering belief in your body's innate ability to heal.

The 6th Principle in Chiropractic states "there is no process which does not require time," including the healing process. BJ Palmer (the developer of Chiropractic) believed that given enough time and a clear nerve system the body could heal itself in just about any situation. In his mind, the innate wisdom of the body had the potential to win any healing game if just given a chance. This is the foundation of all successful Chiropractic experiences.

If you've been under Chiropractic care for some time and see only minimal results, don't give up. The power that made your body designed all the plays needed to get you healthy and whole again. It won't lose the game if you provide enough time on the clock.
