May Newsletter

Think…

For this month’s newsletter, I want to get you to think for a second. If germs were the reason we get sick… then why do some people carry certain strains of bacteria without symptoms? Why aren’t doctors and nurses consistently sick due to being around the sickest population on a daily basis? Why are some kids prone to ear infections and other illnesses while others never get sick?

The problem is simple. When our bodies express symptoms whether it’s a fever, cough, pain, etc. it is because our body was unable to adapt to its environment. Our nervous system is the controller to these adaptations. Interestingly, medicine is designed to be reactive in today’s world. Through medications we try to suppress symptoms that are occurring for a reason. A fever kills bacteria, a cough helps express mucous, etc. Medicine does not look at the question what is causing the problem in the first place.

Why…

Let us break down how life works. The birthing process; which either naturally or C-section, both place tremendous stress on the infant’s neck due to it being the grabbing location for each delivery process. Children slip, fall, bump their heads, and many play sports which all impact the spine. Many kids use technology causing them to keep their heads flexed an abnormal amount straining the spine. Adults have poor posture, sit for extended periods of time, and even emotional stress plays a toll on your spine. Think about how you present if you are depressed. Depression is notorious for having a slumped over posture with your head flexed down (placing stress on your upper back and neck) while stress also increases cortisol production.

My point is that we live in a society where people feel they need a reason to do something. They need to have back pain to go to a chiropractor or they will not benefit. This is why as a society we are growing even more unhealthy even when medicine has continual “breakthroughs”. We want to be reactive verses taking care of ourselves.

How…

So how does chiropractic work and how can you and your loved ones’ benefit? I discussed how symptoms are a problem with the nervous system’s ability to adapt to changes. I also discussed how everyday life events place abnormal stress on your spine. Let’s talk now about what chiropractic can do for you. Chiropractors are trained to assess each and every individual spine for subluxations. Subluxations are the result of spinal bones with improper motion or position affecting nerve communication between your brain and body. We remove these road blocks in your spine that cause interference in your nervous system so that your body is able to adapt to these changes. Chiropractic enhances the body’s natural ability to heal itself from within. This has been proven through millions of cases of people whose lives have changed because they corrected the problem rather than masked the symptoms. Pediatric chiropractic care is growing exponentially along with professional athletes receiving care because people are seeing that there is much more to chiropractic care than just pain relief. Chiropractors do not treat disease. We correct the spine and the body heals. In my office alone I have had patients resolve from digestion problems, headaches, colic, sleeping problems, torticollis, and much more and many of those people had no idea chiropractic would help them.

All I am asking…

If you are still skeptical of something you may have never experienced, I truly encourage you to at least try it. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. If you are under care and know the benefits, make sure you educate others because sadly most people have no idea. This is why I do what I do. My purpose is to make an impact in the world and change lives. If you are a parent, please know that in my office I practically care for all kids for almost nothing because I know it will allow them to live a better life. Pediatric chiropractic care is the future to preventing illness and I would love a world where parents had their kids adjusted before resorting to giving them medications that weaken the immune system. ***I am not anti-medicine or anti-doctors by any means. I believe in allowing the body to heal itself and when it cannot then intervene. I also do not judge anyone who takes medications. This is just to educate and show how chiropractic is a natural means to live a healthier and better life.
