Better Life with a Brain Upgrade - Part 1


Brain-Gain is the goal of chiropractic. 

The chiropractic adjustment is how we access the brain via the spine so your innate intelligence can deliver living impulses to the rest of the body.

But, your innate intelligence NEEDS a receptive body, including the brain.  



Can your organs and tissues receive these living messages?

Give your body the best:


B    bed, brake

R    repeat, reinforce, rewire, replace

A    adjustments, activity, AAA Awareness

I     information

N    nutrition


So, for Part 1 of this blog series, I will explain the "B" part of my brain mnemonic.  

Bed
This seems obvious, I hope.  Good sleep where you go to bed at the same time every night, (that does not mean stay up late on weekends) is crucial for health.  When you skimp on sleep, your body just doesn't keep up. And you feel it. 

In our society, you are nearly heroic if you keep yourself so busy that you supposedly get by on only a few hours of sleep a night.  To understand the problem of sleep deprivation, google: American Academy of Sleep Medicine and sleep deprivation to get nice resource/ fact sheet.

Many people find it hard to sleep due to pain, so keeping focused on the entire Brain-Gain plan can help.  The benefits are overlapping. 

Brake
"Brake" is a certain mind-set  to help you take ownership of a new health experience.   An important aspect of protecting your brain from stress is realizing you cannot shift gears without slowing down first. Shifting gears gives you a new journey, but it requires a mental commitment and then making changes to your plate.  You can't do that without slowing down to make new plans. 

So if you're ready to move forward in your brain health, stay tuned for Part 2 in the Brain-Gain Series.

Adrenal Wars and the Chiropractic Peace Maker

We know when the body is in a perpetual "fight or flight," the nervous system will memorize the pattern.  It becomes much easier to set off the reaction.  

Also when cortisol, released by the adrenal glands, is high, blood flow to the brain is reduced.  When this happens long term, you can understand the significant problems that can arise (especially poor thinking).  

Most of the time we are not in a true "fight or flight" scenario where our lives are in immediate danger to injury or death.  A close call on the highway is a real sense of danger, but once it's over, you continue driving along toward your destination.  

Emotional "fight or flight" during which we constantly face financial demands, an overbearing coworker, moody family members, seems to keep recycling itself.  You experience it when a bad interaction with someone morphs into a repetitive chain of arguments.  This is the feeling of constantly walking on eggshells.  The constant stream of adrenal surge can turn highly functional humans into a stubborn toddler like state.

When everyone is under stress the rewiring becomes such a success that we automatically disregard normal politeness.  We take out our frustrations on each other.  

The classical study of rats overcrowded in a cage illustrates the domino effect of stress induced panic spreading to the entire group.  Do we let our internal adrenal storms harm each other?  Angry people getting angrier at each other can be a contagious vicious cycle.

We hope the waiter taking our order is in a good mood and that everything in his life is going well.  We hope police officers have a healthy state of adrenal function when they encounter each 911 call.  We hope our child's teacher has a good adrenal balance so our child is exposed to positive mental wiring five days a week.  

While not everyone understands the wider and more profound benefits of chiropractic, those of you reading this article can be the catalyst of a healing butterfly effect.  Image courtesy: spititualityhealth.com


Chiropractic enthusiasts committed to lifetime maintenance care understand the reality of brain-drain in their own lives and how it carries over into their loved ones lives.  They have solid plan in place that provides them with big dividends.  

They know the need to clear out spinal subluxations so the brain isn't robbed of energy.  They pay attention to brain nutrition understanding what dietary habits are more beneficial.  They also have a healthy reaction to the ups and downs of life. 

If you need a refresher or want to ramp up your wellness activities, let's talk about it your next visit.

There is no Auto-Pilot -- Think Chiro-Pilot

Unfortunately, there is no such thing as auto-pilot when it comes to health.  To promote life we need some basic things such as air, nutrients, water and a nerve system that will oversee all your bodily functions and necessary healing. 


I call it putting yourself on Chiro-Pilot.   There are 5 easy points to remember:









C    Community
H    Harmony
I      Innate
R     Rebuild
O    Opportunity

Community   -  You are a member, not a patient.

Harmony -  Chiropractic care is drug free and surgery free.  We focus on approaches that nurture (not burden) the body using natural means that are easily accessible to  everyone, namely adjustments, nutrients, and emotional support. 

Innate - We have the innate capacity to heal, but innate needs a receptive body.  We learn how to provide that. 

Rebuild - The maintenance program at Homic Advanced Chiropractic allows us to repair and rebuild the tissue pathways so innate can deliver the brain's healing messages.

Opportunity - You have an amazing opportunity to re-brand your life and experience functional freedom. You are the very person who can inspire your loved ones to do the same.

The ABC's of Chiropractic -- Your New Journey Starts Here

The ABC's of Chiropractic
  • We live in a society that is hostile to true health.  
  • How do we make peace with that and thrive?
  • We decide what side of stubborn to be on.


From the Desk of Dr. Lisa Ann Homic: 





Welcome to a Different Approach.
I am here to offer you something different.  Doing what you are already doing now may not be working, or you are looking to improve on something in your lifestyle.  I am excited to join you on the journey.  

Here's a little intro on what I offer you that is different.

I don't work on problems.    I work on attitudes.  

Attitudes can make us sick.  Attitudes make us lose belief in our own capacity to heal.  Learned helplessness is a common attitude that needs changing in our stressed out world. 
The good news is: Attitudes can always be changed.  

If you have a positive, forward looking attitude, you will find the chiropractic experience a journey worth taking. 


It all fits in the ABC's

How do I start?
A   Ask
B   Believe
C   Commit 

Ask yourself:  What can I do differently that will change my life in a positive direction.
Believe that despite all your bad luck, and past disappointments, you can heal and thrive. 
Commit to a lifestyle that has rewards beyond your initial expectations.

What is Chiropractic about?
A  Always 
B  Brain 
C  Centered
  We access your healing potential (innate) through the spine. The nervous system (brain and spinal cord) is opened up through spinal adjustments.

What is our biggest health thief?
A  Adrenaline
B  Brain
C  Crisis
Mental, chemical and physical stress rewires our bodies into a weak state where breakdown and dis-ease take hold.  Together, we work on identifying and modifying our stressors so we can reclaim our energy, optimism, and ambition to make our community a better place. 

How do we do it?
A  Adjustments
B  Balance our Plates
C  Correct Deficiencies 

Actually this includes D, E, F, but we'll get into the basics first.
