Back Pain? It's More Than the Back

 

Back bothering you?  Or neck?  

Or arm?
Don't Over-Focus

on One Body Part.


Your Brain 

Chose It.

Go to the Brain to Learn Why.

Brain First / Body Follows

Blood, oxygen, nerves, muscles, hormones, lymph, organ systems, etc.

It's always a team effort directed by the information you taught your brain.

The whole point of chiropractic is to adjust the spine so it can unwind the stress of your life, giving you a refreshed energy to live the whole human experience  --- regardless of pain, whether you are in pain or not in pain.   


The brain is constantly reorganizing itself.  Chiropractic enhances the process. 

Be a Light - Chiropractic Ramps Up Your Light

 


The opposite of gas lighting is being a light to others.                               Be a healing light to others.  We all need it. 

The medical industrial complex herds you through the system with very little input from you.  That's because medical professionals, (myself included, as I speak from experience) are taught to follow an alogorithm whether it's right for you or not.  

When your situation must fit into a insurance code in order to keep the system functioning and all your practitioners can meet their requirements to earn a paycheck, the patient is "neutered." What I mean is the patient's empowerment is ignored. The power of the body to be strong is belittled.  Discarding the fact that the body is acting appropriately based on the person's stress is dangerous for morale.  But, worst of all, it is telling a lie to the patient. 

The gas-lighting is rampant.  This is how we get people to obey and not rock the boat.  I may sound like a conspiracy theorist, but no one can deny the Rockefeller influence on the health care culture.  Excellent therapies have been buried.  Talented doctors have been financially ruined, murdered, or left to die in poverty and shame. 

The antidote to a crumbling system is to teach each other how amazing the body is.  Everything the body does is correct for the situation, even if we don't like it.  Even if it is painful.  Let's work with it in a collaborative manner, not as if it's a battle. 

We don't need to be categorized under some kind of disease label that takes away our confidence. Disease labels do not recognize the hard working energy the body is using to get back to homeostasis and repair itself. We've been taught to hate the repair process.  We've been taught to fear it and seek out illogical treatments that put the body into a higher level of survival stress.  

There is a belief that inflammation is good, until it is bad.  The knee-jerk reaction is to always drug away inflammation.  (New research has turned that theory upside down.  Lack of inflammation is actually a sign the body has lost it's ability to repair.) Bacteria is good until it is bad, even though the only role for bacteria is to consume dead tissue.  Do you really want dead tissue clogging up your joints and organs?  A fever is good until it is bad.  But when we reduce a fever, we're prolonging a process that the body really wants to finish.  A rash is always believed to be bad, even though it is a system cleansing.  Rashes don't just appear for no reason. A rapid heart rate is necessary when the body needs more energy and movement.  A cyst, tumor, or abscess is the body's intelligent attempt to surround toxins and bind them together until it is safe to eliminate them.  We would do better to evaluate the toxin, not the protective response.

While I am speaking in generalities, provided the body is not in a state of shock, bleeding out, or overwhelmed with poisons that the body is near death, we must reclaim the truth about our amazing intelligent body.  

You can take away the fear and trepidation with this knowledge.  You can help someone else regain his or her confidence. We can teach each other how to nurture the body rather than add more damage to the body. 

When you approach chiropractic with this mind-set, the impact is much more impressive.  If the body is in a state of fear, chiropractic is still helpful, but it's like wading in the muck.  It takes longer. 

The whole point of chiropractic is to adjust the spine so it can unwind the stress of your life, giving you a refreshed energy to live the whole human experience  --- regardless of pain, whether you are in pain or not in pain.   


The brain is constantly reorganizing itself.  Chiropractic enhances the process. 

I am calling on you to be the light to others.  And in the image above, that little light can take off and ignite the wicker basket, dissolving the barrier that keeps the light under wraps.

Cancer Is Not on the Rise - Ignorance Is


Before you read this blog post it is important you understand where I am coming from. 

I always recall how my grandmother lived with fear.  Our health care model promotes an agonizing fear that robbed her of the quality life she deserved.  Nothing has changed in the last few decades.   New treatments by researchers who still deny how the body truly works have kept us stuck in fear.  It's not acceptable.  That is where I am coming from. 

Cancer is on the rise because we are inspecting our bodies too much.

(If you're a hammer, everything is a nail.) 

We've been advised to screen for cancer every year.  Mammogram, PSA, dermatology, colonoscopy, pap smear, blood work, etc.  

It's the only time we're on the hunt to find nothing, as we hope to find nothing. 

What does this repetition do to the brain, especially the psyche and limbic system?  It's not positive. It sets the stage for excessive stress that drains the body. 

We were taught that you could be dying and not know it because of painless diseases.  I even touted that early on.  I was a good student and follower of these ideas.  I wanted people to understand that chiropractic promotes homeostasis so it will heal problems before you know about them.  I thought it made sense.  And probably some bodily changes may be nipped in the bud but I don't look at it that way any more.  

Everything the body does is correct for the situation.  As the brain acknowledges a stimulation of some kind, it will change the body chemistry, raise or lower blood pressure, kick extra glucose into the circulation, etc.  It is appropriate.  When the stress or stimulus ends, the body resumes regular function as opposed to a heightened function.  I don't view heightened function as a disease. It may feel uncomfortable as the body needs to expel bodily fluids, but that, too, is appropriate.

I am aware that heightened function may reach a "breaking point" and cause permanent injury, so I'm not belittling the need for emergency care. Not to be gross, but if your body is on fire, the flames need to be extinguished immediately or death will occur.  The body will shift into a fight or flight state, but if the skin is still burning, death is likely.

We know the body increases cell populations and decreases cell populations.  A sprained ankle full of inflammation is one example. It will cease when the ankle has had sufficient time to repair itself.  For some reason, we don't call that cancer.

So when it comes to cancer, as a growth or some kind of physical change, there are different ideas about it. 

It has been said that we are fighting cancer everyday.  The body resolves cancer on its own.  Yet, there comes a time when it apparently doesn't resolve on its own and it needs to be cut out, chemically attacked or burned.  

If you are participating in yearly screenings, you might come across a growth.  That one growth gets all the attention.  No one pays any mind to the eighty other growths you already handled during the last 12 months. 

Here's another thought.  Chemotherapy has a 3% success rate, yet people are rushed right into it because it is the cautious thing to do. Interestingly, a treatment that is 100% toxic has a 97% fail rate.  I guess the remaining 3% were too ornery to kick the bucket. 

Yet, if you live past five years you are considered a survivor.  If you die at five years and one more day, you did not die of cancer. 

Sometimes I think researchers just throw darts against a wall to come up with these ideas. Five years? 

Some people feel great until they start their first chemo treatment.  Then people are shocked that they went downhill so quickly. 

I also wonder about the many medical students who start to doubt what they are being taught during their first year of anatomy class.  Cadavers are found to contain numerous tumors that were not the cause of death.  Perhaps they didn't live long enough for the tumors to kill them.  It is also possible tumors are an adaptable response to stress.  The students are told to ignore what they see. 

People are said to have fought valiantly against their cancer until the cancer won.  Why are we taught to fight our own bodies?  

When people shrink their tumors on their own with fasting, nutrition and meditation, why don't we study that?  Instead we write them off as crazies with death wishes. 

We've been told that cancer is on the rise.  Tumors are growing extra quickly lately.  That may be true.  We've been living under layers of unusual stresses in the last few years. I tend to believe an exhausted body that can't fight back is a more plausible explanation than mysterious  mutations high-jacking cells.  

Fight or flight is a useful biological function until the fight runs out, whether by excessive worry, fear, nutritional deficiencies or intentional poisoning. 

I'm not telling anyone to do something or not do something.  I only want people to ask more questions because a lot of the theories still stand on shaky ground. 

Where does chiropractic come in?  Adjusting the spine helps the brain reboot from excessive stress.  Chiropractic profoundly calms an excessive fight or flight response.  To me the real health threat is an excessive fight or flight response that we keep feeding.  The vicious cycle wears the body out.

We can't avoid all stress, but we can support the body that works so hard for us.

***P.S. Google blocks certain search terms that suggest cancer is a defense mechanism protecting the body from toxins, or that cancer can be reversed by downgrading emotional thoughts. 

There is a long history of doctors using nutrition to heal weakened bodies that present like cancer/with tumors.   

This information has been hidden, or certain agencies trash the reputations of these doctors.  Many died broke with broken hearts.

Co Vid Confessions

Before you read this blog post it is important you understand where I am coming from. 

I always recall how my grandmother lived with fear.  Our health care model promotes an agonizing fear that robbed her of the quality life she deserved.  Nothing has changed in the last few decades.   New treatments by researchers that still deny how the body truly works have kept us stuck in fear.  It's not acceptable.  That is where I am coming from. 

So, this is the month that the pandemic officially ended.  (May 2023) 

Yipee!!

Actually, ho hum.  I kept this co-vid mindset out of my world as much as possible.  I didn't follow the panic.  I went shopping whenever I wanted to.  I didn't stay away if it wasn't my day to go based on my birthday, or whatever that ridiculous rule was. I did not wear a mask in the stores.  One day I watched a lady stare at me and I started to dread being there.  Next thing I saw, she took her mask right off. 

I look back at our hippy generation and remember they were the folks who questioned everything and wanted to forge their own paths.  What happened to you?  

So, you wanted the g-o-v-t to stay out of other countries and stop going to wars, but you let them go to war with your health freedom? And you're blind to it?

If you're questioning g-o-v-t, you must question the science they fund.  You must question the education they provided our doctors and researchers. 

The simplest rules of science have been broken and ignored for years.  You cannot accept a proclaimed idea just because it's been believed for decades.   You cannot follow a peer reviewed paper where the authors assumed all the researchers before them got it right.

You bet I questioned my education.  Sadly, I didn't question it while I was in school. Back then, I wanted so badly to be part of this healing industry.  Yes, I'm still here, but with a different vision. 

So here are my co-vid confessions from 2020-2021.  

1- As many of you know, there is no social distancing in my office.  It is about the size of a U-haul trailer.  

2- I touch people.  That's how I do my job.  I can't adjust someone's neck from a distance.  I got in people's faces. We are breathing on each other.  And I don't wear gloves.  

3- Masks? Are you kidding me? If God wanted that, we'd be born with built in nose and mouth coverings.  He already gave us efficient epithelial cells.  

4- I didn't clean the door knobs.  I didn't do anything different.  I washed my hands with plain soap like usual, but I didn't lather up in sanitizer.  I didn't spray poisons in the air.  

5- I didn't ask anyone if they traveled or had illness.  

Here's how my life went:

1- I never closed my office.

2- I never quarantined myself.  I was never on someone's call tracing list. A few people told me they had co-vid because they believed they exposed me, but I never quarantined myself. 

3- I never told the health department if I felt bad.

4-  I took one day off because of a severe sinus headache.  I didn't call the health department. 

5- I went back to the office after this day off with chills, nausea, and no appetite.  I knew exactly what made me feel poorly.  It was a major mental stressor that wiped out my energy.  No one else was going to "catch" my personal problem/personal drama. 

6- I never took a co-vid test.  Not once. 

7- Nobody died of this newly defined disease. Nobody went to the hospital.

So, if my little universe here did not match up with the predictions of doomsday, what was happening everywhere else?  

I truly hope my nonconformist attitude helped my practice members kick this nonsense off their psyches and live with calm. Much of society  suffered from job loss, isolation, premature death of loved ones, and a rotten gaslighting approach in our media.  Children think this is the real world! 

Many nervous systems have been badly damaged by the pandemic hysteria and militant medicine. 

I hope visits to my office were peaceful times of retreat.  Most of the folks who stuck around were happy to keep getting adjusted.  They stayed longer and chatted with each other. We had fun. 

See you at the table....the chiropractic table.

"I Have No Stress" - I Like that Attitude - But Denial Is Dangerous

 

The whole point of chiropractic is to adjust the spine so it can unwind the stress of your life, giving you a refreshed energy to live the whole human experience  --- regardless of pain, whether you are in pain or not in pain.   


The brain is constantly reorganizing itself.  Chiropractic enhances the process. 
* * *
I'm not one to dwell on past events.  Most of us don't want to hash up old stuff that has been long gone in our lives.  But, it's a different story for the brain.  

To the brain, every bit of information picked up by the brain is stored for later use. 
Don't judge it as right or wrong.  It just is. It's natural for the brain. 

Every week or so someone says to me that he or she has no stress.  And the person is telling me the truth. I know many folks who have a relaxed life style,  and take time out for their well being.   

But....they still have nagging questions about some minor aspect of their health.  And I can still pick up on long standing body tension.  Other assessments such as pulse, respiration pattern and hand temperature tells me their brains are in a high state of fight or flight.  Even if they feel calm, are smiling, and have a good attitude about life. 

But......here's a big issue....they are on a lot of medications that keep them in fight or flight.  So, there's a misconception that you can assume you aren't stressed. 

Very often when someone has an unexpected health problem or sudden death, it's such a shocking experience, we often ask, "How could this have happened?"  This person was in "perfect health."  

Are you really low stress?  How can you be certain?

MRIs and Xrays: Not All That Helpful?

 The whole point of chiropractic is to adjust the spine so it can unwind the stress of your life, giving you a refreshed energy to live the whole human experience  --- regardless of pain, whether you are in pain or not in pain.   

The brain is constantly reorganizing itself.  Chiropractic enhances the process. 

........

An Xray shows you bones, spaces between bones, and some thicker tissues.  You will see the shapes of bones, the density of bones and how well they line up.  An MRI gives you more detail if you want to look at the spinal cord or brain for example.  Spinal discs are viewed, as well.   

In chiropractic college I was taught to assess the structures, identify each bone, organ, or tissue.  We looked at the size, shape, and consistency of tissues. 

Certain descriptions are supposed to verify a possible diagnosis.  When we take a history and conduct an examination, we come up with a working diagnosis.  The additional information from the imaging helps you confirm the diagnosis. If things don't match up according to diagnostic criteria, you rethink the diagnosis and go in a different direction.  Now, you probably already know I'm not a fan of diagnosing if it places you stuck in  a box with no room to grow. (Check out older posts on my opinion on that.)

Most people in my office assume a Xray or MRI will confirm their pain.  They want to feel justified.  They want to feel understood, not belittled. They want things to make sense to them.  

However, when you're told your body is your enemy and that it's going to fail, you feel completely helpless.  

Here's the problem, unless you have a major anatomical injury such as a broken bone or crushed body part, the Xray or MRI is not a predictor of pain.  

People who are pain free are very likely to have terrible looking Xrays and MRIs.  It's actually been studied. Not too useful at times, is it?  Well, it tends to be very useful when an insurance company wants to cut off your treatments. 

The problem is insurance companies have the belief that there must be tangible evidence to explain a body symptom.  The reality is that we've been sold some pretty crazy theories.  

Xrays were super exciting when they were a new invention. Remember?  And when new technology is developed, we want to make use of it.  Health care has been built up to be so revolutionized. Do you feel revolutionized?  Do you feel liberated?  Do you feel healthy?  Do you feel accomplished at the end of every day?

The most important message I want to share here on this blog post is that Xrays and MRIs represent one moment in time.  And more importantly, they do not tell us the state of the nervous system.  When imaging is done, it never tells us what the nervous system is dealing with at that moment.  Is the nervous system dealing with fight or flight?  Is the nervous system in a depleted state of freeze or faint?  Is the nervous system ready to heal and rebuild?

With many of my practice members their pain is chronic.  This type of  pain comes from the the brain, not the body part shown on the Xray or MRI.  So, a normal Xray or MRI should not be a reason to discount your pain or discomfort.  Injuries can heal physically, but there is still some kind of activity in the brain. Why? There are numerous reasons.  

Just remember, imaging only tells part of the story.  If we're going to understand vibrant health, we have to translate the nervous system's processing of your daily functioning.  It is unique to you, and takes a bit of time to unravel.  This is the Brain First Protocol.
