Chiropractic Teaches Us to Look Deeper at ...Digestive Health

[Yahoo Auburn Chiropractor 13021]  Chiropractic adjustments can do so much for health.  One example is perking up poor digestion.  Do you have a subluxation that interferes with the nerve function in the digestive tract?

What is a subluxation?  It means "partial dislocation," a non-complex term to describe a fixated spinal joint that   impairs nerve activity between the brain and body organs, muscles, blood vessels, etc.

Viscero-somato or Somato-vicero  (internal organ to structure or structure to internal organ....which came first the chicken or the egg)

A subluxation is part of a damaging process that weakens the immune system, so we need to take a closer look at how the body is functioning under the stresses of subluxations.  

Originates at an Organ
A subluxation could mean the stress begins at an organ and sends stress signals to the spine thus impacting brain responses and causing tight muscles because they share the same nerve root at the center of the body.  If the stress starts at an organ it likely stems from a poor lifestyle habit such as poor diet.

Originates at the Structure
A subluxation could also be originating at the spine from a trauma that eventually makes the nerves change how an organ functions. 

Digestion is a big topic in chiropractic because correcting one aspect isn't enough without correcting all aspects.   Adjustments alone don't work and dietary changes alone don't work.

If you haven't taken the Neuro-Digestive-Stress test in the office in the last 6 months, it's time to repeat it.  It is a hand written test that takes less than three minutes to complete.

When you retake your Neuro-Digestive-Stress test I will explain some important dietary issues that most people find confusing.  But I say it's time to clear it up and get people feeling better.

1) Meats, eggs and "Good" fats such as coconut oil, butter, lard, naturally occurring animal fats, etc. are the easiest foods to digest compared to carbs (plant foods).

2) Iron assimilation is entirely dependent on protein metabolism and not so much on iron tablets.

3) Fiber is the worst thing for digestion

I'll be ready to answer your questions.  See you at the table....the adjusting table.

Chiropractic Teaches Us to Look Deeper at Health Questions

Yahoo Auburn, NY chiropractor 13021

Chiropractic adjustments can be really awesome.  Most people feel positive changes very quickly.  That's great news to hear.  It also moves us to a different place when it comes to understanding health.  Because chiropractic looks at the body as a strong healing force.  The body has its own power.  Sadly we hear more negative messages about our own abilities to heal and handle life's stresses.

The latest news today has come out about cholesterol levels and our cholesterol levels are better than what they were 20 years ago.  And yes, statin use has increased 5 times since then.  That is not good news.  If we are relying more on chemical manipulation, we've learned nothing.

It pains me to hear this news story because cholesterol is not the cause of heart disease.  Inflammation is the biggest danger to heart disease.  And what's worse...people still worry about good cholesterol and bad cholesterol when there is no difference between the two.

These lies continue to persist and it breaks my heart to know people still believe them.

I had my blood tested last week to show my practice members that you can eat eggs and butter, which I do everyday.  I follow a Paleo/low carb lifestyle.  (Avoiding legumes, grains, and sugar).

My cholesterol is 201 ("they" want cholesterol to be below 200.) Personally, I think my cholesterol needs to be higher for better health and resistance.

My triglycerides are 66.  (under 150 is ideal.)

In chiropractic, the body is intelligent and we must not block the delivery of intelligent information through the nervous system.  Different stresses interfere with the transmission of appropriate nerve impulses to keep us alive.  When we understand how well equipped the body really is, we can question some of the health care practices that are considered mainstream and make a true educated decision for our own health freedom.

If you want more information come in on Thursday nights for a "Lied to Death" health seminar.  Call me to make your reservation.

What's Your 10 Year Plan? 20 Year Plan

(Yahoo Auburn, NY chiropractor 13021)
We don't plan for sickness.  Who ever says, I am going to have a chronic disease that slows me down and possibly kills me?  But we all too often know someone who dies prematurely.
Can we change our overall health picture and reverse a chronic trend?
Where were you 10 years ago.....watch out.....time flies so quickly.  Ten years will be gone again before you know it.
Check out my latest article in the Citizen this week.
