Forest for the Trees

Forest for the Trees

  "Seeing the forest for the trees" is an expression of PERSPECTIVE. It's the ability to step back and see the whole picture of a given situation, instead of clinging to a narrow, limited, myopic one. Focusing on the BIG IDEA is necessary to achieving any worthy goal. We commonly hear newer patients say... my migraines, my sciatica, my fibromyalgia - labeling themselves by their doctor's diagnosis instead seeing themselves as the healthy people they want to be. Unfortunately when it comes to healing, holding on to your symptoms is as beneficial as hugging a tree and never letting go. You can't see the forest of wellness if you insist on clinging to the trunk of disease. You don't get healthy by focusing on sickness. You get healthy by letting go, stepping back and acknowledging who you REALLY are... an innately gifted human being, capable of healing from above down, inside out. It's our job as your Chiropractor to never let you forget it.   Thanks for Telling the Story... If you're a Chiropractor or CA, help your patients get the Big Idea with a fresh teaching every week!

Don’t Blame the Tee

Don’t Blame the Tee

  It's just a golf tee, a small piece of wood barely weighing an ounce.  But when you bent to pick it up after finishing the last hole, it may as well have been a 300 lb barbell.  You felt your back pop and now the searing spasm is setting in.  How could such a little thing cause such a big problem? What you didn't realize is your spine had been going bad for some time now.  At some point, your vertebrae lost their alignment - possibly a few months ago from a minor slip or maybe from years of neglect.  Subtle nerve pressure ensued (subluxation) and now your muscles are doing just about all they can to keep you upright.  Bending over on the 9th green was literally the last tee that broke the camel's back. . When a minor act turns into a major injury, it's not what you did that concerns your Chiropractor the most - it's what you're NOT doing that does.  Let it be a lesson to pay more attention to the maintenance needs of your spine.  Do the smart thing - stay regular with your spinal adjustments to prevent a repeat event.   Thanks for Telling the Story...

Chiro-Fool’s Day

Chiro-Fool’s Day

  In a landmark 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. Chiropractoids 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 from the outside - in, below - up until our sense of truth and reality is dulled into dormancy. 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 what miracles your neighbor experienced at the quack's office down the road. (sarcasm).

Changing Light Bulbs

Changing Light Bulbs

  If you came home, turned on the bank of switches in your hallway and noticed none of the lights came on in the back portion of your house, would you A: Change out all the light bulbs that didn't go on, or B: Go to the breaker panel in your basement to see which fuse blew? Obviously it would be smarter to take a trip to the basement first. It makes sense to focus on the source of the problem rather than chase each individual malfunction. Likewise in your body, when you experience multiple malfunctions... back pain, heartburn, headaches, sciatica, allergies, insomnia, constipation and more - would it also make more sense to check the 'breakers' in your nerve system for the source of the problem first before medicating (change lightbulbs) each individual issue? Therein lies the difference between mainstream health care and Chiropractic. While everyone is entitled to more than on health issue or symptom, treating each one individually with drugs and surgery is really no different than changing light bulbs.  Why not check your 'electrical breakers' for a common source (subluxations)? It would seem smarter to take a trip to the Chiropractor first.   Thanks for Telling the Story... If you're a Chiropractor or CA, help your patients get the Big Idea with a fresh teaching every week!

Chiropractic Surge Protection

Chiropractic Surge Protection

  What happens when you plug ten appliances into one outlet and turn them all on at the same time?  You blow a circuit!  The same thing can happen when you surge an unprotected Nerve System with STRESS. Picture your Nerve System as an electrical outlet with multiple stressors plugged in.  Turn them all on at the same time and POW - you overload the system, fry a circuit and ruin your good state of health.  Chiropractors call this a SUBLUXATION.  Depending on what nerves (circuits) are blown, you could experience symptoms from minor aches and pains to more significant health problems like High Blood Pressure (Journal of Human Hypertension, 22,1: G Bakris, MD et al.) Although it's impossible to turn off all the stress in your life, you can guard against unexpected surges with regular Chiropractic Care.  Chiropractors perform their job like a surge protector - skillfully monitoring your Nerve System for overloads and ADJUSTING circuits back to normal when necessary.  When it comes to fighting stress and dis-ease, nothing beats keeping your power ON with Chiropractic!   Thanks for Telling the Story...
