Cures!

Chiropractic care is generally known to help people overcome “Back” or “Neck” pain. While this is true, it is also diminutive to the actual scope of chiropractic.  I suffered for years with daily heartburn that was “cured” through chiropractic.  The first chiropractic patient was “cured” of his hearing loss through chiropractic.  These stories and more are innumerable in the chiropractic profession.

Just last month a young woman (14 yoa) came to my office.  Her mother had taken this young woman to several doctors visits and specialists over 2 1/2 years for her stomach/vomiting/nausea/insomnia causing intestinal problems.  They were all stumped.  Even the most powerful medicines, the latest research and most innovative techniques could not “cure” this young woman of her malady.  Finally (as is usually the case) surgery was brought up as another possible “cure”.  This wise mother then decided to pursue another course in the hopes of saving her young daughter from such a destiny.

I analyzed this young woman and found that, due to trauma in her past, she had a pinched nerve in her neck!  It just so happened that this pinched nerve was most probably affecting a specialized nerve in our body called the VAGUS nerve.  What does this nerve do?  It controls the (parasympathetic) function of our internal organs, or, in other words, this young lady’s stomach, intestines, etc.!

Here’s what I did.  I adjusted her upper neck, taking the pressure off of her nerve.  After the first adjustment, the young lady felt no difference.  However, it made sense to her and her mother that this was going to take time.  And it did take time, about 3 1/2 weeks of coming into my office 3 times a week.  Her problems are now gone, and have continued to be to this day.

This young lady did not come to me for low back pain or neck pain.  She came because maybe, just maybe there was another, less invasive, natural way for her to be “cured”.  And the great news is that there was!  This is not an isolated, solitary case, it happens all  the time!  Bottom line, go and see what chiropractic can do for you!  Maybe, just maybe, you’ll find your cure!

Fibromyalgia, Myth vs. Truth

Fibromyalgia is a debilitating affliction that affects many in the world.  It is an autoimmune disease wherein the body’s own immune system attacks the muscle fibers of the body.  It can cause pain, weakness and fatigue.

Not long ago, fibromyalgia was considered by many health practitioners (and still is to this day) to be a condition of “the head”.  Luckily, new research has shown that those who suffer from fibromyalgia also suffer from polyneuropathy (fancy word for nerve damage).  

This research suggests that not only is fibromyalgia a problem of muscle, but of nerve as well.  

Chiropractors are the gatekeepers of the nervous system and help millions of people each year.  If you or someone you know is suffering from fibromyalgia, go see a chiropractor.  As the chiropractor heals up the nervous system, the body will begin to function as it should, making you more healthy and vibrant than ever before!

Fibromyalgia is not of the mind, it is an actual condition that can be managed if the proper steps are taken.  Start taking those proper steps today, make an appointment with a chiropractor!

IS IT A CURE?

Sickness, coughing, hacking, vomiting…  Don’t be alarmed, human sickness can’t be spread over the internet.

So, what do you do?  Take a pill?  Call a doctor?  Everyone knows that there is every lotion, potion and drug for almost any ailment mankind can think of.  But, I’ll let you in on a little secret.  The body heals itself.

That tylenol you take for the headache doesn’t cure you, it masks the pain until your body can find a way to rid itself of the problem.

Case in point, I have met more than my fair share of people who are, for lack of a better word, addicted.  If they don’t get their (insert drug, lotion or potion of choice) then they are in pain.  Real pain, and, their bodies just won’t heal.

So, what to do?  Well, the first thing I would do is make sure my body is working at its best, so that if it could heal on its own, it would.  What controls the body, the nervous system (you know, brain, spinal cord, nerves).  And who are the medical professionals who make sure the nervous system is working at its optimum?  Chiropractors!

“Really?”  That is a fair question.  Chiropractic students take over 200 hours more neurology than medical students.  And, the main thing that most chiropractors take care of… PINCHED NERVES!

“So, how does that work?”  Fair question again.  Anytime a person has trauma, and this can be physical, emotional, chemical or mental trauma, it can cause the nerves to become pinched, irritated and generally function at less than it should.  Chiropractors are trained professionals in the detection and correction of spinal nerve interference.  That’s what I do, and it is for more than pain.  It is for those who want their nervous system functioning at its highest potential.

It’s as simple as that.
