Listen to Your Head; Your Heart Will Follow

How do people change? I've heard it only happens when they really want to. Everyone wants to improve something in their lives. They spend years thinking about it. The only problem is thinking is not the same thing as doing. Most actions we take each day are habit. They are so automatic that very little thought is needed to accomplish them. Often our emotions keep us glued to where we are in life especially fear or anger.

Certain emotions can hide behind ambivalance or avoidance, as well.

Why do people stay the same? Are emotions involved? Some would say no, especially Dr. Edward Miller of John Hopkins University. Studies show 90% of heart by-pass patients cannot change their lifestyle habits, even though they already flirted with death. Fear of death is not a motivator here.

Success requires ignoring your emotions and getting involved in a series of action steps until a new habit is formed. This is a time to listen to your head instead of your heart. If you want to replace a behavior, make an unemotional contract with yourself, follow through with it and see your don't have a different emotion accompanying the result.

If possible, don't do it alone. Get on a supportive team. Get group coaching:

Save Your Life: Stop Subluxations

Subluxation 101

Do you remember these facts from your first chiropractic appointment?

  • Subluxations accumulate over time.
  • Damage takes place within 48 hours. (calcium deposits, disc weakness, ligament damage, nerve degeneration)

How many 48 hours have gone by and you didn't get adjusted?

As much fun as I like to have in the office, my message is serious. Chiropractic offers a simple solutions to life's problems so we are able to make the office experience enjoyable.
Can you go 48 hours without food? Can you go 48 hours without sleep? Why go more than 48 hours without an adjustment when you know degeneration is taking place? That's when you suffer an injury. What about subluxations caused by chemical, nutritional, and mental stress? You may not have any warning signs.

I ask my patients what do they want to do with a better life? It's more than feeling better. It's about doing things better.

How do subluxations affect my health?

What you do is much more important than what you feel.

Why would I say that? We feel everyday, all day long. We have emotions. Emotions drive us to have passions. What are you passionate about? Doesn't it move you to achieve something for yourself or others? These are positive emotions.

In the office I ask people how do they feel? The responses range from feelings of pain to feelings of relief since they can go about their life as if it was never interupted.

In a chiropractic office it is expected people will be feeling bad, or in pain and they can talk about it there.
Not every chiropractic patient is in pain. Many are looking to stay healthy and prevent chronic disease by keeping their nervous systems in tune.

I often ask my patients, "What do you want to do when you are feeling better?"
I am asking my patients to take action. I want to know what are they going to do differently from now on?

The power of the adjustment can never be underestimated. When the vital flow of innate is not blocked, we have the energy and the will to strive to be better.

Sure pain slows you down, but in chiropractic we recognize pain as a helpful messenger. Pain is just a response to stress. Manage the stress and you can live better.

Emotions such as joy, anger, and fear, move us to do something. Hopefully the action is positive. What you do is the result of analyzing how you feel.

You spine plays a role in emotions. Your limbic system gives you feelings of well being. Limbic system cells are present throughout the spinal cord. Veretebral subluxations will influence lack well being. For more information read Candice Pert's Molecules of Emotion.

While we always feel, chiropractic can help us make sense of our emotions so we can make appropriate choices how to live our lives.

Fight for Your Health / The FDA's Betrayal

Fight for Your Health
Exposing the FDA's Betrayal of America

by Byron J. Richards

An eye opening book.

"It is a must-read for anyone who wants the truth delivered with impeccable facts and enveloping prose."

"Every person in America who values their life and their health needs to read this book."


Fight for Your Health is a stunning exposé into the secret world of the FDA, Wall Street, and drug companies. At stake is the health and well-being of all Americans. Adverse reactions, even deaths, are hidden while dangerous drugs are pushed on Americans, especially children—simply for profit. The FDA is actively attacking health freedom and seeking to eliminate natural health options. Arm yourself with invaluable information that will help you take charge of your health:

FDA working on behalf of drug companies

Mind-control through “mental health”

The true Codex story; health option control

Globalization at the expense of Americans

Poisoning us with our food and water

Your DNA in government computers

Fight for Your Health documents the scope and severity of prescription-drug fraud in America. It explains, for the first time, how Americans are prescribed billions of dollars' worth of drugs that have serious health consequences. It exposes the inappropriate and detrimental uses of bone drugs, brain drugs, and cholesterol-lowering medication.

Using drugs for prevention and to regulate behavior in children is a medical disaster, undermining the health of our nation. Medical doctors, under the influence of pervasive pharmaceutical marketing, rely on drug-based care for disease prevention and the treatment of people with dubious behavioral diagnoses. Our children are especially at risk: They are being exposed to a national clinical drug trial--an experiment with their brains that will have lifelong consequences.

The FDA has put into mothballs its federal mandate to protect the public. In order to foster drug sales, the FDA hides important medical data from the public and from doctors, including the risks of heart attacks, suicide, seizures, and serious mental-health debility. Even worse, the FDA has changed sides. They are actively undermining the rights of citizens to claim damages if injured by drugs. And they are seeking to remove safety barriers to drug testing. They are planning to expose many individuals to unproven drugs, a new form of human experiment.
President Bush has filled the top positions at the FDA with major promoters of drug sales. The priority of these men is to rush unproven drugs to market, for the financial benefit of Wall Street and Big Pharm.

The FDA is now actively involved in the drug-design business, using sophisticated software to assist pharmaceutical companies in drug development.

The FDA is utterly incompetent to monitor the safety of existing drugs on the market. They ignore the numerous adverse side effects that are reported from toxic drugs used for prevention. They are not able to inform the consumer public of the true risks or possible problems associated with almost any medication.

An example, detailed in Fight for Your Health, is the wide-spread use of statins for lowering cholesterol. These medications are portrayed to the public as safe and effective, when in fact they are among the most dangerous and health-deteriorating drugs that exist. Virtually all adverse side effects of statins, except severe muscle damage and death, are ignored by the FDA. Instead, the FDA promotes seriously toxic use of these these drugs—even for prevention.

At the same time that the FDA is fostering drug development and drug sales, they are actively working to suppress natural-health options which hold tremendous health-care potential, especially for prevention of serious problems. In fact, the FDA assists international efforts to ban the use of helpful nutritional options in America. They continue this effort, even though the majority of Americans fully support natural-health options. The FDA has become an aberrant police force, working against health, rather than protecting us.

How Vital Connections Become Endangered

In a previous issue, the definition of vital connections was discussed. Vital connections is best described as the social glue that promotes individual and community wellness.

Families, work places, social agencies, churches and clubs provide vital connections. Are we getting the full benefit of vital connections? Depression is on the rise. Is it because we no longer value vital connections? Trying to "do it all alone" is an attitude that tends to lead to abandoning them.

Are vital connections endangered species?

Detachment is becoming a modern phenomenon. It is commonplace to be uninterested or involved in the community. Low voter turn out on election day is one example.

Social isolation is often a result of emotional neglect during youth. Once an adult, the individual lives a life of loneliness.

Work demands leave people pressed for time. Have social outlets been replaced by the internet and television? Close relationships even get the short end of the stick when work, interferes with normal social functioning.

Our frenzy over privacy has led us to fear healthy social outlets. In our overly cautious society burdened with identity theft, Do Not Call Registries and SPAM blocking software we distrust so much that we may reject actual positive opportunities to grow in our communities.

This trend of endangered vital connections can be reversed. With a desire to expand all facets of wellness, vital connections are recognized to be just as important. Enjoying your current relationships and creating new opportunities for social outlets are healthy practices to round out your wellness plate.
