If You Teach A Child…


If you teach a kid they need drugs to function normally, what kind of adult will they grow up to be? An empowered one, or a dependent one?

If they can’t breathe at night, they’ll learn to depend on a decongestant. If the pollen irritates them, depend on some Claritin. Can sit still in the classroom, depend on Ritalin. Can’t cope with the stresses of life, depend on their anti-depressant – or worse yet, some other ‘outside-in,’ addictive chemical compound to numb their feelings.

You won’t find the solutions for a better, healthier Life in a pill bottle like Big Pharma wants you to believe. They’re stored in the very fabric of your Nerve System. If you stay clear (in adjustment and subluxation free) and give the innate intelligence inside you a chance to solve your issues, the results will empower you instead of making you dependent.

Allergies…Is it Your Environment…or You?



Allergies are a body’s sensitivity to something in a person’s surroundings or internal environment, like a food. Whether it is a hyper-sensitivity or a hypo-sensitivity, that is an imbalance that the person develops an imbalance inside themselves.  But where? How?

Is it a pollen, dander, food, or chemical? Is it their environment trying to kill them? What did the person do to cause the problem? Does this mean they were deficient in an antihistamine at that time? What counteracting chemical is deficient now that wasn’t before? What is the toxicity level that can throw the person into an anaphylactic shock situation and an ensuing trip to the hospital? What is the process of getting out of trouble? So what does this mean to the average person who trusts their health professional to know what is happening with them and the specific sensitivity involved?

All these questions can be VERY confusing. Most “suffering” people think it’s something magical, genetic, or is beyond anyone’s knowledge and they are doomed to a life of drugs once diagnosed. They think there is nothing they can do and are doomed to a life of misery and a drug induced foggy existence when the season’s change. The problem lies within.

How did these sensitivities develop over time? What I can tell you is that all allergies, no matter what form they take, involve the “Master System” of the body. That Master System is the brain and nervous system. ALL professionals agree with this if they know basic physiology. But chiropractor’s are the only ones who work from the inside-out with this system. The problem is inside the individual’s Master System itself. Most people are quick to use the first aid system, but neglect to get to the root of the problem holistically where real health lives and breathes.

The answer is… where do you believe health comes from?

Does it come from an anti-histamine drug? Or maybe it comes from within? Let me illustrate the first aid process briefly.

Most of the testing that is done today is to find out what specific sensitivity the person has in order to keep the person away from it, and prevent the whole “histamine intolerance cascade”. Keep in mind this process is only is to keep the person from having that cascade happen again and to keep the person more comfortable. This approach is from a first aid and patch approach. This is not a health approach. No information gathered is to find out the cause, only the offending trigger. Most people are quick to use the first aid system when they are in a life threatening situation. No question there. That is obvious. This is where current procedures stop, but it is deeper than just a lack of a mitigating chemical. What they forget to do, is to find out why those weakness’ start in the first place. They start in the nervous system and brain at our core, way back in the beginning when the memory pattern was being set up at the start.

Actual health all starts from the inside-out. It has to start from our core which is true immune strength and comes from the “Master System” internally. The Master System is the brain and nervous system. The Master System has to have good coordination in order to function properly. The brain and nervous system are controlling every single cell, function, chemical release, repair, replacement, and movement inside the body. When this coordination is altered, the internal environment is now considered, “incoordinated”, and not in harmony. Balance is lost.

“Coordination” inside the body also involves every single chemical released by the organs inside each person. These chemicals that are inside a person are an effect. They are an effect of what the in-coordination of the brain and nervous system has been experiencing. There are no outward signs to it. In fact, we are completely unaware of its formation. We are now “incoordinated” many different ways. It is a cascade effect. Unfortunately, our ability to heal daily has been compromised over time by the offending memory pattern. This incoordination of the body gets repeated over and over and the individual replaces normal coordination with incoordination until a symptom finally rears its ugly head in the form of an anaphylactic response. Like a heart attack, this can happen before ANY symptom shows itself.

The weakness’ start within the person themselves. The INDIVIDUAL is the problem themselves, and it is NOT their environment. The organs, muscles, bones, blood, hormones, and nervous system all have to coordinate in harmony for a person to have a good strong immune system and proper health. The memory pattern that ensues is usually setup years before the person has ANY symptoms at all. This is where Vitalistic Chiropractic shines. Vitalistic chiropractic helps the body regain its coordination so the bodies function, balance, communication and the memory pattern is retrained and health is regained. It has one caveat though.

The practice member has to make good lifestyle choices in order to promote healing inside themselves outside of the office. Most studies are looking at different ways to make uncomfortable people feel more comfortable. They aren’t studying healthy people and teaching the unhealthy people to be more healthy. Things like drinking more water, stretching, eating less processed foods, getting restful sleep, delegating stress away or managing your stresses. That is then a strong recipe for success and strong healing from within.

Allergies And Chiropractic

Chiropractic care doesn’t treat allergies. So, why do so many people with allergies mention that they see improvement by receiving care in our practice?

It’s Not the Pollen

There are many signs of an allergic reaction. Itchy eyes. Runny nose. Sneezing. Skin rash. More serious reactions can include constricted air passageways, vomiting and even death. All this from a handful of peanuts, an encounter with a cat or microscopic grains of pollen in the air!

Allergen Fear?Your body inappropriately perceives the allergen as a threat.

If everyone reacted to these common substances, we could fix the blame squarely on the nut, dander, shellfish or pollen. But not everyone reacts.

What is it?

Inappropriate Threat

Your nervous system is the master system that orchestrates your immune system, glandular system, respiratory system and every other system that reacts inappropriately to an allergen. Normally, these systems help you respond and adapt to the world around you. But suffering from uncontrollable sneezing around a house cat is probably an inappropriate reaction.

If your nervous system isn’t working right, you don’t work right. So, rather than direct our attention to the countless potential allergens, we locate and reduce the disturbances we find to your nervous system.

Water BucketHow full is your “adaptation bucket?”

A Full Bucket

Each of us was born with the capacity to withstand or adapt to stress. If we’re unable to deal with things we eat, breathe or come into contact with it may be because our margin to adapt is used up.

Pretend that this bucket represents your capacity to adapt to the physical, emotional and chemical stresses of life. Every stressful encounter your body faces, fills up your bucket. If your bucket is already full and you encounter pollen, foods or other chemicals, your bucket overflows.

When that happens, people say they’re having an allergic reaction. But what they’re really saying is, “I’ve lost my ability to adapt. My margin is used up.”

Chiropractic: Nervous System

So, we don’t treat allergies. We look for ways to restore your ability to adapt to allergens by locating and reducing disturbances to your nervous system. Simple, really.

We’d love to discuss your specific allergy issue and how chiropractic may help. Email or give our practice a call.
