My Tools - Your Tools

As a practice member, you are part of an elite group.  And, yes, that means a lot of people look up to you.  Don't let that added pressure make you nervous.

Why are you in a special group?  Because you have learned somewhere along your path that there is no life without your innate energy flowing along your nervous system to reach each organ, cell, and tissue. 

You are here to keep your brain/body connection in it's best possible state. 

It is an ongoing job because life is busy and the body is always responding to the environment.  

But we have excellent tools to keep it manageable and easy.

I have tools and you have tools:

1- I have my hands that deliver the adjustments to your spine.
2- I have the membership program so you can efficiently receive your maintenance adjustment weekly or more often as needed. 

Your tools: 

Since you want your adjustment to have a powerful effect on your health, your organs and tissues must be able to receive the nerve energy we unleash with the adjustment.  How do you maintain your tissues?  With nutrient energy from whole food concentrates.

You have the ability to impact your own diet:
         3- Balance your Macro/Micro-Nutrients for optimum health
                 The Macro
                  10% Carbs (Veggies and Fruit)
                  30% Protein
                  60% Fat (healthy fat course, a must for nerve tissue and                                  brain protection, etc) 

               The  Micro
               Nutrients from Standard Process Whole
               Food Concentrates (This makes up for the loss of nutrients
               in our modern day food supply.)

I've got some other handy tools in the office to help you discern what nutrient combinations would help you the most. 

So get ready, and fire up your adjustments like a Fourth of July Celebration.'s around the corner.

See you at the table.

Hey, Men! Is the American Heart Association Giving You Low - T ?

Not to pick on men, but I'm pretty sure guys might listen more to topics on testosterone rather then heart health. 

But heart disease is a big problem, and low-T is a hidden partner in crime. 

So, just to let you know, the American Heart Association wants, you guys, to eat less fat, use seed oils,  and eat more whole grains.  

What does that mean?  If you look at Chapter 8 of The Deflame Diet, by David Seaman, DC, MS, it will explain why Low-T is associated with autoimmune diseases and a pro-inflammatory state.

Three culprits cause dietary induced inflammation: grains (refined and whole grains), seed oils, and sugar. 

What does this have to do with brain-based chiropractic?
We want the chiropractic adjustment to send nerve energy to thriving tissues.  Can your organs, blood, cells, etc., receive the adjustment and use it?

Let's perk up your body's soft tissues with good nutrition.  Inflammation is a big battle.  The adjustment helps reduce inflammation, but a poor diet is like pouring constant poison into a river.  

Would you throw money on the ground?
Of course, you wouldn't do that.  So we don't want to waste an adjustment either. Your adjustment is like money.  Let's get the biggest bang for your buck that you can. 

See you at the table.

Teach Yourself to Not Miss Toast

I have given up toast.  Yes, it can be done.  

Check out Dr. Wolfgang Lutz and his personal story at this link:  CLICK HERE

I have been eating low carb for a number of years and always had a desire to have a plate full of runny eggs and plenty of toast to dunk.  

In all honesty there is no such thing as moderation when it comes to grain products.  You just say good-bye.  And you then tell yourself, "I don't miss it."

Because we have an alternative.  Sweet potato fried eggs.  

With the vegetable spiralizer being all the rage, I decided to to use my 50 cent vegetable peeler.  I like to have thin strips of carrots in my salads, but the day I tried it on sweet potatoes, I knew I was on to a more creative way of cooking.
The best way to get more healthy foods into your diet it to be as creative as you can imagine. 

These thin strips of sweet potato soak up the egg yolks just fine and taste great. 

Once you sautee them in butter for a few minuted, you crack your eggs right on top. 

 I tossed in some almonds for a little crunch and breakfast is served. 

Take a look at the photos.  There is just one problem.  It's not as pretty once I flip the eggs, but you "get the picture."

Building Relationships: Sometimes Easy--Sometimes Challenging

As a chiropractor who offers the membership-model for maintenance and wellness, I know a lot of folks who are "in it for the long haul."
 There is nothing in practice that is more rewarding.  It is the only reason to be in practice: to cultivate long term relationships which is an absolutely necessary part of healing.  

Chiropractic is a relationship.  Your brain and spinal cord are in a life sustaining relationship with your organs.  
My ability to communicate this and maintain a supportive relationship with my members provides the ongoing source of fuel to enhance the healing power.

Not everyone takes the journey.  While I have been privileged to be a part of people's last years and even their last days (like, Lefty, who passed in 2013), I wonder about the people who decide to go in a different direction.  It weighs on my mind. What kind of relationship could I have formed with them?  I have only one or two visits to make that impression on people and convey the gift of chiropractic.  Some people are very distracted and the information doesn't sink in.  I know it takes time for people turn around and try something new.  I know it takes multiple warning signs of poor health before someone decides to take action.  

I wish I was a psychological magician..... 

At times names of folks in the obits section and I remember when they came in the office, but they were not fired up about the chiropractic story. I replay the visit in my mind and try to come up with better ways to reach people. I'm still working at it. 

I am grateful for folks, like Lefty.  I wrote about him in 2014 on my Facebook wall: 

April 20, 2014:
Thinking about Lefty who died in his sleep Easter Monday last year at age 96. He started getting weekly adjustments the year I was born and I got to be his last chiropractor. He came for his Wednesday adjustment the week prior and was late for the first time. His daughter said he couldn't get up that morning and was still sleeping when she came to drive him over. His health was failing since Christmas and he was getting transfusions. Finally he said he was fed up with the transfusions, but gosh, he made it for his last adjustment at 3 p.m. five days before he passed. RIP, Lefty.

To all my members who are committed to the profound work of the nervous system, Thank You.

Let's keep building a better world.

I'm Worried About the Direction of Your Life......(not your sore back)

There is a real broken-ness out there that needs our attention.

It's not your sprained back.  It's not your headache.  It's not your sciatica.  It has to be how much you stretch your mind.

Should I Help You DO MORE HARM?

Odd question, but I need honesty.

If you're getting adjusted on a regular basis to improve your nervous system....... (That's the only reason.......helping your nervous system make you a better healer.)

........Back to the question.......Are you getting adjusted so you can go HEAP ON MORE STRESS in your life?

Your life is your life and I am happy to provide chiropractic care to those who appreciate the unique spine/nerve relationship.

But .... am I helping you do more harm?

Is your stress level still high?

Your emotional stress?
Your physical stress?
Your chemical stress?

Part of subluxation care is understanding how to change the stress we have control over.  We can reduce the interference that disrupts nervous system function. 

You have the innate intelligence working for you everyday.  Let's boost your healing power.

I Really Hate It When Folks Don't Feel Better - Part 2

I can feel pretty down when folks don't take a deeper look at important aspects that influence healing. They shut down the conversation, change the subject or explain to me why things have to be the way they are.....

I deal with many mental blocks that are pretty tough to break down because they are so well ingrained in society's way of dealing with health. For example: the fix it fast mind-set regardless if it is a safe solution with real benefit.

When we are locked into these mental blocks it's very difficult to give the body what it truly needs (and we tend to expose our bodies to dangerous habits).

What are the massive mental blocks I see?
1- Feeling there is no time for health because of a demanding work schedule
2- Lack of belief that healthy changes can happen
3- Putting up with an unhappy work environment 
4- Addictions to foods and chemicals that are clearly destructive to the body.
5- Addictions to foods  and drinks we are told are healthy but actually wreak havoc on the body.
6- Spending money on unhealthy activities that could be better spent on non-insurance items or services that rebuild the body.
7- Lack of exposure to other people who demonstrate habits that influence true healing.

Too much of the destructive stuff....
Not enough of the nourishing stuff...
Not enough support...
Not enough desire to reallocate time and energy in this direction because it's just not that bad yet.  

These mental blocks hover around the adjusting room and set up a negative psychological aura that doesn't allow people to break through the glass ceiling.  

Psychological stress tightens muscles, increases cortisol, raises heart rate, raises blood sugar leaving us in a perpetual state of inflammation.  Think of it as a big fire and we are throwing three or four ice cubes on it.  

I'm here to get you through these difficult road blocks.  But you have to use me.  You have to ask me how to reach the core of the apple.  You have to let me know you want to hike through the thicker brush of the forest cutting down the vines and limbs that are blocking the path.  This is called "advanced chiropractic."

I don't know if you want to go deeper in your journey.  I can only nudge and see who bites.  I cannot force people. 
And we have too many societal forces going against us. 

Let's have a chat.  See you at the table.

I Really Hate It When Folks Don't Feel Better - Part 1

It's a hard day when someone isn't experiencing health improvement.  

We're both disappointed.

Yes, it does take time.  And, yes, there is limitation of matter to consider. That means some damage to the body is irreversible, but there is always a chance for some kind of improvement.

I never want to give up on somebody (especially when they give up on themselves).  These folks may have a lot of tissue damage or toxic build up that has disrupted the healing process. 

So, there's a lot of work that needs to take place to boost healing. And it may seem to be a daunting task to undue years of stress on the body.  

I think about these folks long after I've left the office for the day.  I often get very sad when I see the following:
      --Someone giving up too soon
      -- Someone not believing improvement could happen to them
      -- Someone who doesn't have support at home so they can fully          concentrate on healing.

It isn't a good feeling watching them walk out the door. I really wish everyone felt the same excitement I have about the healing process.  I've seen people go through a great transformation process and I know it's possible.  For that person who is disappointed, in their own world they see only that. 

Look for Part 2 of my article and how we can counter the stumbling blocks.

P.S. Most folks do very well under chiropractic care, but there are the other folks who had amazing, life-saving experiences.  You must always tell your friends and loved ones that better health is possible.  I can't do it without you.  You are proof and people need to see proof in action. 

Tune in for Part 2 tomorrow.

Hey, have you checked out

Fake News? Let's Talk About Your Fake Pain

                                   (P.S. Here's the Harness Your Habits Link)
Fake news is all the rage in recent months, (or years depending on your feelings on the current state of our media options).

What is fake news?
    * Some quotes are misinterpreted or poorly paraphrased?
   *  Embellished stories?
    * Outright lies?

Let's talk about fake pain, because this is an issue everyone would rather tip-toe around.

What's that?
  It's just my way of describing how people handle their health concerns. 

Pain is a message, not the real problem.  
Pain is often a misinterpreted message. 

          Pain has multiple causes, and I don't deny people have pain.
However, pain gives folks something to worry about, talk about, and dare I say....complain about. 

       It's really a safe distraction.
      I talk to a lot of people with recurring pain.  
      All things considered I see a lot of recurring stress.

           Recurring dysfunctional relationships
           Recurring bad dieting
           Recurring medication side effects
           Recurring lack of sleep
           Recurring terrible bosses who manage badly
           Recurring excuses

We call this stress: interference.

Interference subluxates the spine and short circuits the nervous system's ability to coordinate healing through the body. 

While we adjust subluxations to reconnect your wondrous innate healing capability, can we be more honest about stress?

Not all stress can be alleviated, for example, gravity, pollution, politicians.  But we can do quite a bit in our lives to make things better.  And that includes honesty about what causes break down and what causes healing. 

Stay positive!  Hang out with chiropractors!

Why I Do What I Do

(Don't forget the  Harness Your Habits Videos)
People are hooked on suffering.  That's why I do what I do. 

I have found people dwell on their problems for a long time.  They replay negativity over and over in their minds.  They dissect their challenges hoping they will find mental relief.

This is beyond inaction.  This is a double-whammy.  Why make it worse?

We are equipped to heal.  So, let's support healing.

It's simple.
Subluxations are life altering.

Clear out the subluxation. Give healing a chance.

Like a garden that needs weeding, keep clearing out your subluxations.

 Experience the real you.

You can help yourself in so many ways, but you've got to get right to the place that is your inner most source of personal power: your nervous system.

Watch the new member orientation and join a focused group of people who are dedicated to becoming better versions of themselves

Harness Your Habits: Transform Your Life Without Trepidation

Babies use a fabulous technique that we tend to corrupt and mishandle after age 4.  

Happy New Year, Practice Members.

This is the time of year folks want to add a little change to their lives and seek self improvement.
If you fall into that category, we have a treat for you.

You are invited to take part in Harness Your Habits: Transform Your Life.

We don't want to get bogged down in goals. What does all that S.M.A.R.T. stuff stand for anyway?  We don't want to focus on the negativity.  People want to break a bad habit for a good reason such as health or financial improvements, but the dwelling on past failings make it all quite depressing.

But, harnessing means we are taking advantage of the success we have already achieved and build upon it.

We are going to use the same technique that babies use to reach developmental milestones.

Do you wonder what that entails?  Good!  Come in to the office and learn how.

Be sure to ask me about brain mapping and how to use it to your advantage.

See you at the table.  The adjusting table.
