Adapting After the Storm: The Wellness Process

*******************************
It’s day 2 of our winter wonderland. The county still has a travel advisory which means be very cautious while driving because conditions still are not good. Just about everything was closed yesterday. I hung around the office until mid-afternoon then called it quits because getting in and out of the car downtown was too much work. The parking situation was not ideal. Parking spaces were not plowed out and today there is still no way to get to a parking meter to put money in it. In fact, if you park on the street, there are no openings to get to the sidewalk. Someone has to walk almost a block to find a suitable passage way.

This happens just about every winter when that one big snow storm dumps a large amount very quickly and it takes a little longer to adapt to it. Every winter we are forced to adapt.

It is similar to the nervous system of the body to adapt. We are adapting everyday to the environment. If we remain aware of what we are putting our bodies through we can help it adapt. We can expose our bodies to appropriate things such as a good diet, routine exercise, and “reasonable” stress management. So, when a few crises come along, we can respond properly, adapt for a while, and then get back to regular function.

If the nervous system is continually bombarded with excessive stress, bouncing back to regular function does not happen. When the spine is burdened with chronic subluxations, regular function does not happen.

While we are all trying to adapt to this “winter mess,” our thoughts are not too positive. It is aggravating to be disrupted. There is extra work involved. The cold temperature seems to get to our last bit of patience. That means our psyches are adapting to a constant barrage of negative emotions. This too gets transplanted into the nervous system setting us up for an undesirable pattern that is difficult to reverse.

How do you want to adapt? How are you adapting now?


If the weather has kept you away from the office, that is understandable. Please get back in as soon as you can so your adapting mechanisms can be nurtured. If you want to have a better understanding of adapting mind and body so you can live your best life, ask me to discuss this further with you.

Enjoy the Journey!!

Subluxation vs. Wellness: When You Are Stuck In Your Ways

You hear the phrase, "stuck in your ways."

We've all been accused of that. It usually means we are mentally and behaviorally and attitudinally stuck.

(Attitudinally is a real word!!)

The problem is our thinking patterns and emotional patterns transfers to our bodies. Think of the process of photography. Images are reflected onto a sensitive medium during a timed exposure. (check out the definition on www.Wikipedia.org.

Subluxations are the same. I often talk about the chemical, physical, and emotional causes of subluxations. We don't fall down everyday (physical subluxation). We can improve our nutritional and environmental quality (chemical subluxation). But emotions are active in us everyday.

Emptional subluxations are more pravelent and sap us of our enrergy, not to mention how inefficient out nervous system becomes.

"Stuck in your ways" is a metaphorical despription of the subluxation. We know the brain memorizes patterns, good or bad. When our spines absorb negative patterns, then a continuous vicious cycle is at work.

This vicious cycle can go on for years without us paying attention to it. How many of us think stress is normal? When the autonomic nervous system is internal functions are "stuck" in maladative patterns. In other words: mind becomes matter.

Chiropractic helps us change our negative patterns.
Don't forget my article from a few weeks ago: No Pain, More to Gain. It shows chiropractic's broad benefits.


You can create your Wellness Contract and get started on changing those patterns for the better. Pick up your information packet in the office.

Feel well, think well, and help others do the same.

If You're Not Excited About Your Existence, You're Not Going to "Get It"

The biggest part of chiropractic is understanding how wonderful each of us is. We are all connected by a Universal Intelligence.

I have a link to this on my Vision Page

We are amazing and how we nurture our human potential influences how we live our lives.

When I talk about the universal principles listed on my Vision Page, you can't help getting excited about your existence. If people are not excited, they are just not have a good one. They just don't "get it." They don't understand. This is sad...but it doesn't have to be permanent.

There are many ways to feel good about your existence: church affiliations, a career that impacts the lives of others, marriage and parenthood, working on a cause you believe in, being artistic, etc. The list goes on and on. Every contribution to the world is a sign someone is excited about his or her existence.

Chiropractic helps you keep on contributing to your world by helping you be the best person you can be in body, mind, and spirit.

I am thankful you have all joined me in the Chiropractic Love of Life!

Sometimes it is difficult to understand the Chiropractic Love of Life. If you have only associated chiropractic as a great idea to help back pain, there is truly much much more...

Let's keep the idea and the excitement. And, please, share it with others who haven't had the experience yet.

Welcome New Member: Enjoy the Wellness Journey

Welcome New Member!!

Every new practice member goes through an orientation about the office and chiropractic.

I recently put a new message on the wall of the front room that explains the evolution of our practice members.

People come in because they are looking for something different.
They stay because they love life.


Everyone has their own ideas of what they are looking for in life. Many are led to chiropractic because of curiosity or a friend shared an experience with them. It was like that for me.

I was looking for an empowering way to put the mind and body connection to good use. I was curious. My work as a therapist in the mental health system motivated me to seek out other ways to "reach people."

I discovered chiropractic.

Each person I meet wants to change something in their lives. At least, I think they want to. Sometimes someone isn't sure about changing. Sometimes people are looking for someone else to do the changing for them, which, of course is not successful.

Einstein said doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results is not productive. I paraphrased him. He actually said it was the definition of insanity.

I invite everyone to look for something different. Chiropractic is still a new idea to lots of people.

I hope to help people expand their minds, experiences, and motivation. I hope they add chiropractic to their life expanding routine.

Please share your excitement with me.

See you at the table...the adjusting table.

We will feel welll, think well, and help others do the same.

The Numbers Don't Lie Diet -- Feb. 17th

Chiropractor Highlights: What Can We Learn from Musicians

Meet Dr. Timothy Jameson at his website Musician's Health.


He helps musicians be at their best while on stage and off. He specializes in repetitive strain injuries educating his patients on the long term strain performing has on the spine and nervous system.

The biggest problem he deals with is the majority of his patients say they waited to see if their problem would go away on its own. We remember from our office orientation that it only takes 48 hours for calcium deposits to form in joints and nerves damage to occur in 14 days.

This is a good point for everyone, not just musicians. You are doing yourself a huge favor by coming in as soon as you feel you are not at your best. Remember pain is only experienced 10% of the time which means 90% of the time physical problems in the spine have not yet reached conscious level at the pain centers of the brain. Nervous system signals much reach the brain for pain to be felt. If the nervous system is under stress that prevents this process from happening, damage is occurring and you don't know it.

So, don't wait for it to go away. You don't have to.

Chiropractic is about keeping your body in a balanced state so you can heal properly.
Fast healing is never the the goal of chiropractic. Fast healing usually means masking problems and pretending they aren't there.
Proper healing needs a healthy nervous system.

Keep the energy flowing and we will see you at the table....the adjusting table.
