Are You Sure You, and Your Family, Are Protected?

Sun Protection

 

As we go through life, we learn about different ways to protect our health. Most of us recognize that exercising, eating balanced meals, and drinking good water are all part of what we should be doing everyday to keep our health strong. We all know that protecting ourselves from the sun is a good idea, so we don’t get skin cancer later in life. Our parents tried to have us eat our vegetables so we would grow up “big and strong”. We also know that wearing approved sunglasses with the appropriate UVA and UVB filters and polarization is also a good idea so we don’t develop eye problems. Thinking ahead is the KEY, but there is one part within us that never gets much attention because it’s “out of sight, out of mind”, or so we think it is. In reality, it is THE MOST important and the most abused. I like running your automobile until it just seizes up, because you changed the oil in it. Or are you okay with running your body until it breaks, like an automobile that does not get an oil change?

It is the Central Nervous System and Brain.

Go ahead and look it up. The Central Nervous System and brain is “The Master System”. Nothing will heal, repair, or adapt without the brain first doing something. The messages coming from the brain have to be clear and unhindered or those messages will be distorted. That is the BIGGEST key to your health. And making it a lifestyle is even more important.

Regular “tune-ups” need to be done or problems can develop. Health comes from the inside-out and placing your health totally in a first aid system is generally a mistake. We need the first aid system for emergencies, but those who forget to look at the vitalistic side of their health will never heal to their fullest potential. Healing starts from within. Invest in your health through chiropractic and you’ll start notice all those sunny days ahead.

What Do Your Lungs and Snowflakes Have in Common?

winter-snowflake-cool-desktop-backgrounds-for-free

With the expectations of snow coming on the horizon, most people are trying to get those last-minute things done before the “Big Storm” hits. Please make sure that you are careful when lifting heavy objects to move equipment into a ready state, or storage containers into different positions. Please make sure that you get help when you are lifting heavy objects, if you have the help available. Lift with your legs and not your lower back. Work smarter not harder. That aside, did you know that no two snowflakes are exactly the same?

Nature creates the most beautiful patterns around us. Snowflakes have always been first on the list when talking about how unique each one of us is as well. Each person is unique unto themselves. How do we become that way? The nervous system develops and constantly recreates us on a daily basis.

As we live and grow from childhood, the way our “Master System” develops helps create how we look at the world, how we play and work and our personalities. Because of this, each one of our individual Master Systems (the Brain and Nervous System) has a story to tell. Our exposure to the stressors in our lives also helps form our outlook, personality and character. Therefore, it only makes sense to stay connected to the Master System, so we can heal, reduce stress and enjoy life the way each one of us was meant to; from the moment we were given that Gift of Life.

Growth is one of the signs that you are alive. The ability to grow is one of the “Signs of Life” and to grow properly is a fragile endeavor. A disturbance or distortion in that growth can have detrimental effects down the road. This is especially true of the brain and nervous system. This is understood by us, as fractal mathematics. That’s what people call it in order to try and understand the nature of the natural things around us. These are relatively simple equations that become very complex in a short amount of time. They are also visually relaxing to look at and are some of the most profound shapes. Did you know that seashells and your lungs inside you share this common trait? Those are also two other patterns that are part of fractal mathematics.

So the next time you are outside, stop and take notice of what is around you and you may notice some interesting patterns that you haven’t noticed before. We hope that you and your family have a joyful and prosperous new year in 2016!

Vince & Principle #6

72825119TH002_FocusOnSport“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 game 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 a 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.

An Ounce of Chiropractic…

ounce of chiro and surgeryThere’s a saying that goes an ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure. From a financial stand point, nothing could be more true when it comes to using Chiropractic care.

A 2005 study published in JMPT found “for low back and neck pain, the inclusion of Chiropractic benefits resulted in a reduction in the rates of surgery, advanced imaging, inpatient care, and x-rays.1” That means less unnecessary testing, less hospitalization and fewer operations when Chiropractic care is made available. The scales clearly tip in our favor.

When you keep your Nerve System clear and give your body a chance to heal itself, you end up saving tons of time, money and aggravation. Chiropractors know it. Our patients know it. We’re just waiting for the rest of the world to catch on.

Bedwetting Helped with Chiropractic – A Case Study

Sad BoyThe Journal of Pediatric, Maternal and Family Health, published a study on Dec. 23, 2013, documenting the case of chiropractic helping with childhood nocturnal enuresis, more commonly referred to as bedwetting.

According to the study authors,  Nocturnal enuresis is defined as repeated voiding in clothing or bed that occurs in a child over the age of 5, and occurs at least 2 times per week for more than 3 months. Bedwetting is one of the most frequent problems seen in childhood, and affects roughly 10 percent of all children at the age of 7. 

In this case, a 10-year-old boy was brought to the chiropractor with the complaint of neck pain. The issue of bedwetting was not mentioned when the child was brought in for chiropractic care, even though the problem was chronic in nature, and he was wetting his bed 2 to 3 times per week. The boy was also having diurnal enuresis, also known as daytime wetting, which the mother described as  leakage. 

A chiropractic examination was performed including posture observation, palpation, functional leg length analysis, and spinal range of motion. Based on the examination, it was determined that the child had multiple vertebral subluxations that caused nerve system interference.

Chiropractic adjustments were begun for the correction of the boy’s subluxations. On the second visit, the boy’s mother mentioned the bedwetting and reported that her son only had one incident of bedwetting after the first adjustment. For various reasons, there was a break in the boy’s care, during which time he had several episodes of bedwetting. Upon his return to chiropractic care, these episodes decreased and eventually discontinued. Over the next eight weeks of care, only one incident of bedwetting was reported, and no daytime wetting had occurred.

The study also recorded that after the boy’s first adjustment, his neck was not hurting. At his third appointment, he stated that his neck was again hurting from sleeping wrong. After the adjustment on his third visit, he never mentioned any more trouble with neck pain.

In their conclusion, the authors sum up this case by stating,  The case report of a ten-year-old boy who is dealing with a history of nocturnal enuresis is presented. Chiropractic evaluation and care is presented with subluxations noted and adjusted. A decrease in severity and frequency of enuresis was noted. While more studies need to be performed, chiropractic care appears to be beneficial in the effects on nocturnal enuresis in children and adolescents.

Happy 119th Birthday Chiropractic!

Happy Birthday Chiropractic 119For over a century Chiropractors have been introducing their clients to the best doctor on the planet…the one that lives INSIDE them.  Here’s what we’ve accomplished so far.

Chiropractic is the largest DRUGLESS, non-medical healing profession in the world
Currently, Chiropractors practice in over 100 countries all over the globe
There are approximately 65,000 Chiropractors in the USA alone, and another 13,000 worldwide
Statistics show that 10-15% of the American population (30 to 40 million) have seen a Chiropractor

Those numbers are rising as more people grow weary of mainstream medicine’s failure to give them what they ultimately want… HEALTH!   One Principle continues to draw the masses to Chiropractic – the acknowledgment of an innate intelligence within all living things, and the never ending pursuit to restore Life through its free expression.  Not too shabby for only 119 years.
