Maintaining the Golden Egg

August 16, 2016

CLA Golden EggWe all have excuses for not getting to the Chiropractor more often – too many appointments, too many responsibilities, too many ‘you fill in the blanks.’  You’re the golden goose and you have little time and LOTS of people to satisfy.  But what you don’t realize is those ‘I’m too busy’ excuses are the EXACT reasons why you need to take better care of your spine and Nerve System.

Every activity you preform starts as a mental impulse in your brain that travels through your spinal cord and nerves until it reaches its final destination.  Nothing happens in your body without FIRST being patterned in the Nerve System.  From the simple act of getting up from a chair to more complex ones like balancing your books, everything you do in Life is first done in your Nerve System then executed in your body.  And the more clear your Nerve System is kept with regular maintenance Chiropractic Care,the more efficient and effective those jobs become.

A full plate is no excuse for missing adjustments.  If you have co-workers and family depending on you, you owe it to them AND yourself to maintain a clear nerve system so you can always perform to your best.  A well adjusted goose lays more golden eggs.

The Study of Death vs Life

August 11, 2016

CLA ToetagOne of the not so obvious, yet fundamental differences between the practice of medicine and the practice of chiropractic is that one sends most of its time dealing with death and disease, while the other, the full expression of Life.

The MD mostly spends his or her time on diagnosis, treatment, sickness, convalescence and eventually hospice – the states which arise from the suppression of innate Life force.  Whereas the DC (doctor of chiropractic) focuses his or her time on analysis, adjustment, vitality and vivification – the states which arise from the full expression of innate Life force.  Here’s an astute observation…when you focus MORE attention on the later, the need for the former reduces.

This is what Chiropractors believe TRUE health care is, as opposed to the SICK and DYING CARE we spend trillions on today.  How much better off would we all be if more time was spent keeping innate happy, fully flowing in her house, instead of treating the ruin that results from her absence.

The Dow Jones of Healing

August 9, 2016

CLA Dow JonesHealing is like the stock market.  It never progresses in a straight line.  You’ve got to expect some ups and downs along the way.

You might experience a surge of relief when you first start your Chiropractic care only to be followed by a setback.  Soon you’re back on track, seeing huge improvements.  Progress continues with bouts of highs and lows, and you may even experience a plateau or dip in your improvements.  But don’t make the mistake of ‘pulling out of the market’ early.

Keep the big picture in mind.  Like stocks, the gains in Chiropractic care are best seen over time.  When you look back and see how far you’ve come since your first visit, you’ll realize the LIFE dividends are paying off.

Zombies Among Us

August 4, 2016

CLA ZombiesWhat do zombies and the chronically Subluxated have in common?  Both are doomed to aimlessly wander the earth moreDEAD – than fully ALIVE!

It’s common for those suffering with chronic Subluxations to feel tired, fatigued and disinterested in Life – like they’re barely existing.  If left undetected, chronic Subluxations interfere with the normal flow of power in your Nerve System, leaving you physically, mentally and emotionally drained.  The result: you end up waking around in a trance-like state, clueless to the fact that you’d feel more alive if you simply got adjusted.

Do you know someone who’s meandering through life like the walking dead?  Nothing’s scarier than living hopelessly in a ‘zombie-like-fog’ because of Subluxations.  Reach out and tell them how Chiropractic care can transform them from the walking dead to the well-adjusted!

Congruency Points

August 2, 2016

CLA WalkWhen was the last time you went to a doctor who said “here take these drugs because I use them myself and they make me healthier” or “here’s a new shot for your kids, I’m not certain of the side effects, but I gave it to all mine because the pharmaceutical rep said it was good for them.”  Even when it comes to flu vaccines, the TV MD may say it’s OK on camera, but behind the scenes they won’t dare push it on their own family members.

When it comes to the care we provide, Chiropractors earn top congruency points.  The care we suggest for you, we actually do for ourselves and our families first.  Getting adjusted regularly to keep our own nerve system clear so we can function to our potential, CHECK.  Making sure our own family members get analyzed and adjusted more often during times of stress, CHECK.  Recognizing that symptoms are the body’s attempt to fix itself, and not succumbing to the false promise of relief and comfort touted by mainstream medicine, CHECK.

Ask yourself, who would you rather trust with your health, someone who clearly walks the talk or the guy who simply talks?  Your Chiropractor has every confidence in the Power that made our bodies, to heal our bodies – we encourage your to Live the same way.

Fight for Yourself

July 28, 2016

CLA Keep CalmIt’s that time of year again.  Lines will soon form outside of every corner prescription retailer.  The water cooler conversions about ‘getting your shot’ will become more common place.  It’s flu season – so let the fear begin.

If you pay close attention, you’ll discern the patronizing message behind Big Pharma’s campaign during the up coming (and likely worst yet) flu season.  You’re  not smart enough – follow our commercials…You’re too weak – trust our shots… Your body doesn’t stand a chance of making it by itself – depend on our pills and potions.  NOTHING about your body’s innate ability to adapt to its environment.  NOTHING about the intimate relationship between neurology and immunology.  NOTHING about how capable you truly are of getting through the ‘season’ on your own.

Don’t let the flu season fear mongers bully you into thinking you’re not good enough to survive without their help.  Start training for the fight now with good nutrition, proper rest and exercise and last but not least, keeping your Nerve System strong and clear.  Keep calm, your Chiropractor believes in you.

CLA TissuesIf you ever thought about canceling your appointment because you were sick and didn’t want to spread your germs to everyone in the office, think again.  It’s actually the BEST time to come in.

The field of neuro-immunology has well established the connection between a healthy nerve system and normal immune function.  Chiropractic adjustments boost your ability to fight off colds and flus by unlocking your spine, clearing nerve tension and unleashing your immune POTENTIAL.  And doesn’t it make sense to keep your immune system working its best so you can get better faster?

You wouldn’t cancel a dental appointment because your tooth hurt.  Likewise, don’t cancel your Chiropractic appointment when your nerve system is fighting to get you well.  Even if you’re under the weather, try not to miss adjustments…and don’t worry about the other folks in the office getting sick – everyone here will be adjusted, protected and ready to serve you.

Plaque and Subluxations

July 21, 2016

CLA PlaqueIf you eat, you’re going to develop plaque on your teeth – it’s inevitable.  But if you brush regularly, you can keep the plaque from building up…thus avoiding the formation of cavities and decay that result from neglect.

Likewise if you move, you’re going to develop subluxations in your spine – it’s inevitable.  But if you get checked and adjusted regularly, you can keep the spinal fixations from setting up…thus avoiding abnormal nerve tension and the spinal degeneration that also comes from neglect.

Whether you like it or not, plaque and subluxations happen – if comes with being human.  The only other options to avoid them are to not eat or move.  But what kind of existence would that be?  It’s better to keep these byproducts of Living in check with regular, professional maintenance care.

CLA Sand FeetToes in the sand, not a cloud in the sky, 75 degree water temps.  Vacations are the perfect time to decompress, spend precious time with family and friends and reconnect with your soul.  What could possibly stress your body?

How about ten days of sleep on a mushy mattress?  Or two hours of novice water skiing/body dragging lessons.  Not to mention the bottomless Mojito’s and obligatory trips to the dessert buffet…and don’t forget nursing that nasty sunburn from day three.

Unfortunately, stress doesn’t take time off.  The scenery may change, but your nerve system is still hard at work – reacting and adapting to those “relaxing” shifts in routine.  It’s a prime opportunity to become Subluxated.

If you’ve been away from the office for a while, we hope you’re well rested.  But now it’s time to get back on track and into a healthy regimen; especially getting your spine checked and cleared of Subluxations.  When you need to recover from vacation – put Chiropractic on top of your itinerary.

Restoration Care

July 14, 2016

CLA Car RestoreUndertaking a restoration project can be a harrowing task.  Depending on how much wear, tear and neglect you’re faced with, it could take several months and a lot of money to get your rusted classic back to the way it looked in its glory days.

Getting your spine back in shape can be a big restoration project too.  Instead of re-chroming the bumper, painting the trim and removing the rust, your Chiropractor will attempt to bring your spinal range of motion back to operating specs, correct any bad vertebral alignment issues and halt the progression of arthritic degeneration and protective care – all in an effort to undo years of neglect and poor maintenance on your part.

Too often, people leave spinal care out of their health regimen – waiting until something ‘breaks down’ before they give it proper attention.  Unfortunately when it comes to your spine, it’s impossible to replace original parts once they’ve worn.  So please, take care of the ones you have now.
