As a Man Thinketh...When your goals come from the inside...your potential is unthinkable...amazing

The Law of Correspondence: "As within, so without."
From the chiropractic perspective, your health comes from the inside out. A very powerful statement.

The Law of Concentration: "Whatever you dwell upon grows in your reality."
From the chiropractic perspective, health is the most natural state. When you dwell upon natural, it will be experienced.


I put a poster on the front door of the office:

The cause of health is promoted here, not the cause of disease.
You are a vital human being, not a machine.

Be excited about your existence!!! Live the Excitement!

Why We Love New Year's Weekend. Is It the Resolutions?

It's New Year's Weekend and this is the usual time everyone talks about resolutions. It is an interesting holiday that goes way back in history. I was wondering why it is national holiday. I know my answer now.

http://www.holidayorigins.com/html/new_years_day.html
http://www.simpletoremember.com/vitals/NewYearsHistory.htm
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Year

This site discusses the origins of New Year's Resolutions. It is a long tradition.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Year
(Unfortunately, these wikipedia entries change so quickly, this link is no longer accurate. Do your own google search for New Year's Resolution and you will find the traditions behind this practice.)

Many people are adamant about making goals every January. Some are ambivalent because the resolutions are given up on soon after the hustle and bustle of life gets in the way again.
Many feel it is unnecessary because goals can be made and evaluated all throughout the year.

Here's the thought of the day: Why can't we stick to new goals? Because life gets in the way. I find that to be an ironic statement, but it rolled of my brain so quickly it is a cliche that is very revealing.

Rather than making goals because we can concentrate on re-ordering our priorities and being realistic about them. That may be an appropriate way to transition into new habits without setting ourselves up for failure.

Leave your comments here, and tell me your successes in the near future. It will make a great follow up to today's newsletter entry.

Happy New Year!!!

Healthy for the Holidays

There were so many practice members waiting to get adjusted the Friday before Christmas that there were not enough chairs in the front room! I shortened my hours because I wasn't sure how busy it was going to be, but what fun it was to see so many folks waiting to get their energizing adjustment at the last hour before the weekend.

I congratulate this group who remembered their health is one of the most important gifts they can give to their loved ones.

It's more fun to celebrate when you're feeling your best.

Happy New Year to Everyone.

Gold Rush Here In Auburn, NY

I couldn't have said it better. Here is another great article from Planet Chiropractic that shows how popular it is to regain and maintain health from within. The human body has its own health center deep inside. Innate Innteligence is taking care of us 24 hours a day without us thinking about it. Just imagine how much more exciting it is when we are thinking about it. I am in awe of it. I hope you are, too. It is the best gold to have. See you at the table, the adjusting table!!

California Chiropractors Giving Away Gold
planetc1.com-news@7:19 pm PST Local Chiropractic News

The following submitted article comes from the chiropractic office of Dr. Michael J. Moore, a Redding California Chiropractor and graduate of Palmer Chiropractic College Davenport, Iowa.

Are You Giving Away Gold In Here?
by Michael J. Moore, D.C.

A couple of days ago a patient I hadn’t seen for a while greeted me as I walked into the room, then said, “Hey, with all those people out front, I was wondering if you were giving away gold in here?” We both laughed for a moment, then I said to him, “Yes we are! The ‘gold’ is your health. That’s why people come. That’s why you’re here, isn’t it?”

“Yeah, you bet!”

It may seem like we are “giving away” something valuable, but what we are actually doing is helping people find the gold (their health) that was already there, hidden inside themselves.
What a great thought! If we each truly saw our health, our vitality, and our well-being for what it is worth, what value would we give it? I bet we would give it higher priority in our life than we sometimes do. Most people wait until they “hit the wall”, injure themselves, or get sick before they give their health a high priority. It certainly is an individual choice, but what many have experienced is that once you get well it’s much easier to maintain that state and prevent a back slide (no pun intended) than to wait for the next crisis to strike, and have to start the process of healing all over again. It is quite simple, actually.

At the start of a new year, we are presented with the opportunity to re-order our priorities on what really has value in our lives. It is a time to focus our heart, the source of motivation, and our mind, the source of discipline, in those areas of our life we wish to change, sustain, or enhance. Instead of starting out by writing a list of resolutions, a list of things you think you should be doing, begin by writing out your purpose for doing these things. Make it fun and rewarding! This provides the motivation you need to discipline (that nasty “D” word) yourself to take action in these areas of your life. Then you can outline the steps and set the necessary priorities to develop a plan to bring your vision into reality. Find the purpose that will motivate you, but remember to make the changes fun!

My staff, Donna, and I are excited about the opportunities we will have this next year to help you, your family, and our community “find the gold within”.
Chances are there is a chiropractor in your community who is "giving away gold" or is there to help you find the gold that is already hidden inside of you.

Got Exams? Get Adjusted.

I came across this article on Planet Chiropractic. The idea is catching on. Be nice to your brain, give it chiropractic. All types of stresses weaken the body and chiropractic provides a unique way to keep you in top form. I wish we could compare grades with the chiropractic group and the non-chiropractic group.

Final exams have stressed college students seeking chiropractic
planetc1.com-news@10:38 am PST
by Michael Dorausch, DCplanetc1.com staff writer

Forget Ritalin, Red Bull and Starbucks!
Chiropractors across the United States have been reporting an increase in visits from university and college students during the past two weeks as they prepare for final examinations.

If you are a college student, this is definitely the time of year that you are likely to experience great stress, anxiety, and pressure related to final exams. While some students reach for the Ritalin, Red Bull, and Starbucks, others choose to go the natural way, making increased visits to their local chiropractor.

Let's face it, final exams are part of college life whether students like it or not. Every student, and even the professors, may feel pressure and anxiety building up during final exam season. The last thing a student needs is to be stressed, sick, or too uncomfortable to be able to sit for several hours at a time, while taking exams.

Students are finding themselves hunched over the books, up late in school libraries, and churning through flash cards at uncanny speeds. Some students have told me the most stressful thing is having more than one final on the same day, as it becomes tough to focus due to the time constraints.

I don't think I've ever seen a chiropractor advertise or promote to college students about the importance of receiving adjustments during final exam season but somehow they've gotten the idea that chiropractic care is a way to go in relieving stress, un-clouding the mind, and staying focused. About two weeks ago, I had my first college student come in from Loyola Marymount University, in Los Angeles, specifically asking for a "final exam preparation adjustment." I thought it was funny and laughed it off but was impressed that this young 18 year-old freshman took it upon himself to be responsible and come into the office for spinal and nervous system tuning while preparing for his exams. Later that day other students began showing up mentioning stress and anxiety related to preparing for exams.

There are two major universities nearby our office that most college students come from, UCLA and LMU. Since that first student came in two weeks ago we've probably had 40 or more college students mentioning final exams as a cause of stress during the week. That's pretty significant here in Los Angeles since the traffic right now is horrendous and getting to our office is no easy task. Today, some are coming in already done with their last exam for the year and are now requesting a "post final exam I am going to do a lot of partying adjustment." Fortunately, we have just the thing for them!

You don't have to live in Los Angeles to have spinal stress, even though the 405 and 10 freeways are often times primary causes of vertebral subluxation. College students all over the world would benefit from a chiropractic adjustment, or series of adjustments, not only this week, but in the weeks to follow. Many chiropractic offices offer special plans for college students so that they can receive chiropractic care on a regular basis. Ask your local chiropractor if they have a student plan that will suit your needs.

Dr. Michael Dorausch is a practicing chiropractor in Los Angeles, California. While the office serves mainly residents of the beach communities of Santa Monica, Venice, and Playa del Rey, it doesn't matter where you're coming from. If you can get there, they will do their best to serve you.

The Stress of the Season

Are you feeling stressed especially this last week before Christmas? The Season of Giving has become the Pressure of Giving. We forget we are really preparing for Jesus to return.

Giving to others is still very important. It provides hope for all of us that life here on earth was meant to be enjoyed. We aren’t supposed to do it alone, either. Sharing reminds us the value of community. The gift of each other is the next best gift to the gift of Christ,

Taking care of our health is one gift that keeps on giving. If we are at our best, we will naturally give our best.

I’ve been reminding my practice members to make time for exercise this week. It is probably the easiest thing to ignore while racing around to finish last minute items on our to-do lists.

Remember to take care of yourself, so you enjoy the entire Christmas Season.

Merry Christmas.

It's Too Cold to Exercise!!

I used to get up early and run. The weather is colder and it is darker. Ugh. It's time to get creative. We still need to exercise. Are you doing any school walking or mall walking? Are there any stairs in your office? Replace the smoke break with a water break. Dehydration is so common we've lost the thirst signal our bodies used to give us. The carb craving has replaced it.
Are you getting fresh air during your lunch break? Put some free weights in your basement or back room and pick them up a few times a day. Get on a rebounder/mini-trampoline and get your heart rate up. Buy some work-out videos to play any time of the day. Walk to go buy the paper. Got any other ideas? Send them to me or use the comment button!!

Keep Moving!!!!!

Super Size Me -- Are We Asleep at the Wheel?

I just watched Super Size Me http://www.supersizeme.com/ I could not imagine anyone eating at a fast food restaurant multiple times a day or multiple times a week. Funny, I worked at McDonald's during college so I have to think back to what I ate. I stopped working there in 1989 and became a vegetarian in 1992. I have not been a vegetarian since 2002. I probably ate something there everyday. I do believe I didn't eat a lot of Filet O Fish or McNuggets. I did eat cheeseburgers and fries. I drank soda everyday, although I did not have soda at my house (I lived at home back then). I did not find the salads very appetizing because the boiled eggs, ham, chicken, and cucumbers were really "gross" to me. They were not fresh. They came in plastic bags and were not "real."

The two most interesting points of the movie that caught my attention were the following:

(1) It took Morgan almost a year to lose the weight he gained in 30 days. It took him longer to lose the last 4 pounds. Yikes!! That's a warning for all of us. I still have some of my "baby" fat from pregnancy. I could easily gain more weight and make it even more difficult for myself.

(2) One of the bariatric surgeons said stomach surgery is the only cure for diabetics (in his experience I am assuming). To me, this idea takes away people's belief that they can protect their own health. Sometimes it is difficult to avoid eating a food that is not healthy, but we are not stuck in a fast food time warp. I think this doctor's comment sends a very dangerous message. He gives his blessing to eat whatever is at your reach without a thought of the consequences, because anyone can just get his or her stomach sewn up. Is that what we have evolved into? Yikes, again. Yikes. Yikes. Yikes.

A Closer Look at Diabetes

Christmas Contest Clue #1 [Scroll Down]

A Closer Look at Diabetes

I received my latest copy of Health Keepers. [ http://www.healthkeepers.net/] Although this article is not found online, because it is so recent, you can easily sign up for a subscription.

There is a very eye-opening article on diabetes as a later stage of a digestive problem. If you are interested in prevention this makes perfect sense. It begins in the pancreas which serves two purposes. (1) It produces and secretes digestive enzymes. (2) It also produces and secretes insulin. If a person overeats the wrong diet, ie. unnatural foods, processed, denatured, this overworks the digestive enzymes, thus exhausting and degenerating the pancreas. Eventually all the hormones produced by the pancreas malfunction. The author discusses how it is actually NOT a sugar problem. Diabetes is linked to heart disease and Alzhiemers disease. It is logical to look to the digestive system, not the heart and brain. [***Also, Health Keepers is a great resource for people who want to locate published literature that debunks the disgusting lies about cholesterol and statin drugs.]

While you are waiting to get your copy of Health Keepers, here is an article about a local man, DeWayne McCulley, who cured his own diabetes and made his doctors angry!! http://www.newhealthdigest.com/06Sept.pdf. [Page.5]

Mr. McCulley wrote a book about his experieince: Death to Diabetes: http://www.deathtodiabetes.com

New Health Digest is a free, local publication. It provides essential information for people who are dedicated to self-care. http://www.newhealthdigest.com

Don't Forget the Christmas Contest. Scroll Down for the First Clue!!
