Your Prevention Practices are Inadequate


Chronic degenerative disease is a major problem in the U.S. It is a big reason why health care reform is wanted so badly but is unable to be successful. Sickness is expensive when prevention is inadequate.

Most of us practice inadequate prevention without even knowing it. Sure, fitness is a big deal. Eating properly is a big deal. But, we don't go far enough. We feel good in our minds knowing we are attempting to have better lifestyles, but it doesn't add up and the statistics show it. You can click on the chart above to see it enlarged.

If diet and exercise is not enough, what are we supposed to do? You have to understand the more specific causes of ill health. When I was writing God Made Women Not Estrogen Dominance, it became clearer to me that there are many environmental and societal problems not addressed in the health care industry. That is why I have nicknamed it Half Care Health Care.

The solution is to learn about the "missing links" in what creates health. While you are doing this, you will need to let go of the "links" that are not useful in this endeavor. Many old ideas about health are based on fighting disease once it pops up. This is disempowering because the stress of dealing with a crisis can take away someone's resolve to learn about natural options that rebuild health.

If someone is dealing with a diagnosed disease, it is necessary to find out how to rebuild health, not fight the disease process. The disease process is a signal that the body hasn't been rebuilding on a consistent basis. We can learn how to fill in the gaps. Someone in this situation can talk to me about CMAS (crypto-metabolic aging syndrome) and how to address it through self-directed natural care.

For people who are interested in prevention, it is time to learn how to fill in the gaps of prevention by learning about genetic damage, detoxification, and peri-neural vibrational dysfunction. You will learn how to enhance your diet and fitness routine.

If you have any of the following concerns below, you can benefit from CMA education. (CMA stands for crypto-metabolic aging.

[ ] Obese or overweight
[ ] High blood pressure
[ ] Poor cholesterol and triglyceride numbers
[ ] Inefficient insulin/diabetes or pre-diabetes
[ ] Arthritis and/or fibromyalgia
[ ] Pre-menopause or menopause or postmenopausal age
[ ] Any unpleasant sign of aging
[ ] genetic dysfunction
[ ] Impaired detoxification
[ ] Peri-neural vibrational dysfunction

Look for more information and future office classes.

Using the Wrong Tactics on Unrecognized Diseases

Don't Put Up with "Half Care" Health Care Anymore

This sounds like a contradiction, but it is an eye opener. We know there are chronic health problems. We know people are sick. Until we admit the full extent of how these problems got started and how we are reacting to them insufficiently, we will still be sick. And don't count on health care reform. It will be more of the same.

I am offering a special incentive to practice members who want more information.

In the meantime, look at my check list below and ask me if you want to stop the hidden health problem that is not getting enough attention:

Get the hidden illness out in the open.

Check off any that apply to you:

[ ] Obese or overweight
[ ] High blood pressure
[ ] Poor cholesterol and triglyceride numbers
[ ] Inefficient insulin/diabetes or pre-diabetes
[ ] Arthritis and/or fibromyalgia
[ ] Pre-menopause or menopause or postmenopausal age
[ ] genetic dysfunction * (how do you know you have this?)
[ ] Impaired detoxification * (how do you know you have this?)
[ ] Peri-neural vibrational dysfunction * (how do you know you have this?)
[ ] Any unpleasant sign of aging

If you have a few questions on your mind, good! We're moving in the right direction. Ask me at your next appointment:
What are the real health problems and how do I face them appropriately?

Remember last year when I blogged about health care being unrealistic in cost and efficiency?
Read it again and ask me how to get healthy without expensive technology and scare tactics.

Your Chiropractic Adventure Starts Here!

I receently created a new slide show for new practice members. It provides a short introduction to the wellness aspects of chiropractic and describes how this office is different from other chiropractic specialties.

I invite you to take a look at it and show to friends who may not understand all the benefits chiropractic provides.

Maybe you need a refresher, so take look.


Don't forget to be on the look out for the summer time series of talks based on my lastest book release: God Made Women Not Estrogen Dominance.

A Dedication to Important Decision Makers

I will soon be launching a "double book." I finished writing God Made Women Not Estrogen Dominance: Premenopause & Beyond.

On Sale Now....Click Here

I saw the need to focus on this stage of women's lives because (1) I am in it now, and (2) a better understanding and welcoming of menopause is the better way to deal with a whole host of other chronic diseases. What is not being communicated in the medical media is that all diseases are related in some fashion to premenopause and beyond.

Rather than look at all health issues separately, we need to look at them from a maturing standpoint. For women it is before, during, and after menopause. (Men have a similar change and can be addressed in an almost similar fashion.)

Premenopause and menopause are recognized as troublesome times in a woman's life. It is treated like a disease in the allopathic model. Even with a more natural approach, symptoms are treated one by one with different herbs and supplements and the overall process of "the change" is underappreciated.

One common theme that seems to be invisible is the toxin connection. The older we get, the more toxic we become and these pollutants trapped in our bodies confuse the nervous system as well as the hormonal feed back system.

Toxins are recognized as a frustrating culprit in weight gain, but it should now be more noticed in all issues of aging, especially premenopause.

And, women beyond menopause still need to be concerned about menopause even though they no longer have their periods. They still need to detox and restore balance, but medicine treats them as if they are men since they are past the reproductive years. This is an attitude change that will only happen when older women demand it from their health care providers.

I've also included a revised edition of The Numbers Don't Lie Diet, so the book is full of two concerns common to women.

The book is designed as a guide for women who want to take more control over their health so they still have time to be the important guide in the lives of their families. To them, I have dedicated the book.

Look for an announcement for some office talks coming up.

Health is Confidence

Pictured: Charlotte Gerson

Do you have enough faith in your self care and lifestyle habits that you would cancel your health insurance? Surprisingly, there are people who do not have health insurance by their own choice and most of them are not rich and famous.

Health savings accounts are on the rise as an option for those who want more flexibility in their health care spending. A savings account for out of pocket costs is allowed to grow with funds that would normally be used for expensive insurance premiums.

Health savings accounts are very popular for folks who spend their own money on prevention care such as gym memberships, holistic services, and weight loss support groups. This serves people who want less insurance but more discretionary spending money for wellness care.

Charlotte Gerson is one person who stopped buying health insurance when she was in her early thirties. Now in her eighties, she still works full time running the Gerson Institute in San Diego, California, and makes time to visit patients at the Gerson clinic in Tijuana, Mexico.

Her father, Dr. Max Gerson, developed a plant based diet to help people heal from various diseases. All her life she has followed her father’s protocol for cancer prevention and healthy living. Seeing enough people respond under his management, she prefers to follow this program rather than use prescription drugs. She stated this very confidently in a documentary film about her father’s legacy.

While Charlotte Gerson had an incredible experience working with her famous father, very few of us get the opportunity to watch people with terminal conditions regain their health. To most of us, just talking about disease makes us nervous wondering if we are truly healthy enough to live out our later years with pleasure.

From the chiropractic point of view the worst disease is a nervous system that is too damaged to regulate the immune system. When body systems cannot bounce back from stress, chronic diseases are more likely to take hold.

Most scientists agree that drugs manage symptoms but do not resolve sickness. Lifestyle habits such as eating well, exercising, and abstaining from smoking play more of a role in helping people heal from illness and injuries.

Adding chiropractic to one’s routine will boost these efforts by enhancing nerve responses at spinal joints. A study published in 2005 showed regular chiropractic care increased serum thiol levels demonstrating an increased level of DNA repair. Damaged DNA is linked to aggressive disease processes.

There are many non-intervention types of care that protect people from disease but are not covered under insurance. When chiropractic and other similar services are not covered people will deny themselves the opportunity to enhance their healing ability.

My message to them is to bargain shop for car rentals and towels, but not to skimp on wellness care like chiropractic. While we hope for an all inclusive health care reform, our own well being is up to us. Don’t wait for prevention to catch on. Get it for yourself.

PCD is the best deal in town

I am constantly going over the demographics of who is coming to the office and how I can get more people interested in chiropractic as their first choice in health care before resorting to drugs and surgery.

I don't have a lot of faith in health care reform because the bureaucratic hoops we will all have to jump through will be worse. Everyone's best bet is to stay healthy and practice a lot of prevention.

I've been looking at other chiropractic discount programs to see how they compare and I must say Preferred Chiropractic Doctor (PCD) stands out as the best. I haven't found any other program that is less than $30 a year for an individual. I've even seen some that tell me what to charge. Others require auto debit from bank accounts.

While chiropractic is still covered under some insurance plans, it only pays for short term pain. This does not do much for our long term health. One of my chiropractic mentors always tells his practice members: "Keep coming once a week until one of us dies." He's got the right idea. Now that I've been adjusting the same people for ten years,I see the difference between consistent chiropractic and sporadic chiropractic.

Cash chiropractic is the best chiropractic. Only you and I decide what is best for your long term health. Not a third party who doesn't know you and care about you.

This year will be my 15th year of getting regular adjustments myself. It has made a wonderful difference in my life. Eirne has been getting adjusted since he was 4 days old and he was such an easy baby.

Please let others know how easy it is to get under chiropractic care.

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

To all my practice members: thank you for your enthusiasm.
