I'm Not Getting Better

(Auburn, NY chiropractic healing news) image credit:

You've tried many different things to feel better. You are healing from an injury and it seems to be taking too long this time. You have nagging little health issues that you tolerate, but they just don't go away.

Let's look at things a little differently.

1. You've tried many things to feel better.
Different view: Something else in your life repeatedly overpowers your attempts keeping you from feeling better.
2. You are healing from an injury and it seems to be taking longer this time.
Different view: More attention is needed now than what was adequate in the past.

3. Nagging health issues just aren't going away.
Different view: They are sticking around for a reason, because something else is sticking around.

Your Body Speaks to You in Interesting Ways
Often we are clueless because we just wish the answers were obvious. Why doesn't my body speak the language of me? Because it can only speak the language of cause and effect with a little nervous system thrown in.

Keep in mind the 3 causes of poor health.

1. Chemical stress
2. Mechanical stress
3. Emotional/Mental stress

This includes deficiencies and intoxication. Nutritional deficiencies arise out of poor diet, relying on just food for nutrients, as well as medication effects. Intoxication is not just over- imbibing in caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol. It also includes medications, illegal drugs, and the body's poor ability to detoxify on its own. Chemical stress doesn't allow us to heal properly.

Vulnerable mechanics is due to poor balance, under conditioned muscles, being overweight, lack of sleep, poor posture during activities, repetitive strain, and lack of "conditioning exercise".(I say conditioning exercise because people perform a great deal of exercise that is inefficient and ineffective out of habit.)

Life issues change all the time. We have good days and we have bad days. They tire us out and weaken the immune system. If you have a "worry-trigger." It will get you more often than other issues that don't bother you. If you had an injury or illness look back at the last two weeks and see if a "worry trigger" popped up in your life.

Now re-evaluate your situation and your actions. Look at yourself as if you are watching a movie on TV. What things do you notice are getting in the way of your health? What things are you missing?

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

P.U.S.H. is not an Accident

(Auburn, NY Chiropractic Healing News)

Do you take advantage of the Power of P.U.S.H.?

Everyone is motivated by avoiding pain and seeking pleasure, but how do we maintain a healthy view? We've always heard the middle road is the way to go. If in doubt, stick with moderation. There is another way of making progress and promoting personal success. It is called the Power of P.U.S.H. It sounds too easy, but it works and the best of the best know that P.U.S.H. is the golden rule:

P = Properly
U = Utilized
S = Simple
H = Habits

Success is not an accident and while it is always good to dream big, it's the little things we do that keeps up the cohesion so we can continue to grow.

What are your properly utilized simple habits? Take an inventory of what you do on a regular basis. Can you add one or two more behaviors to your routine so you can see your results expand?

What simple habits can you properly utilize?

Take a 10 minute walk
Read two or three pages of an inspirational book
Add an extra piece of fruit to a meal
Write a thank you letter
Get your adjustment once a week...not just when you can make it in..

From a chiropractic point of view, consistency gives you clarity. Don't let your spine get bogged down with the by-products of a stressful day. Don't put it off. I am you to be your best.

Please leave a comment of a new P.U.S.H. you want to incorporate into your day. 

See you at the table...the adjusting table

If You're Not on Fire....

(Auburn, NY, chiropractic healing news)

I want you to be on fire for wellness.  If you're not on fire, you're missing out.

Only you can create the healing experience.

I can provide the healing environment, but you have to take it home with you in between your chiropractic visits.

The most difficult thing to overcome is a disbelief that radical healing can happen.

Many people are sick, suffering, drug addicted to pain meds, but not aware of it, debilitated by nutritional deficiencies but don't realize it or accept it.  People don't know what really helps revitalize the body.

If you're one of them, check out the office and learn how to saturate your cells with the 2 critical energies.

Expose yourself to something new.  Challenge yourself when you first want to reject it.
And finally commit to a new health routine.

Chiropractic's Mental Illness Cure

(Auburn, NY, chiropractic healing news)

I gave a talk in the past on the depression trap. I spoke on chiropractic's early history of chiropractic mental hospitals. No drugs were used! Probably there was a lot of kindness, empathy and of course...adjustments! Plenty of adjustments!

This article, Chiropractic in Mental Ailments, published in 1957 used the word "cure" because it was highly successful. The statistics showed nearly a 99% rate of improvement. A judge who saw inpatients in his courtroom, tried to pass new laws to include chiropractic in all hospitals.

Because this article used the word "cure" I see nothing wrong with using the word today. We know the scary history of psychopathic drugs and Peter Breggin, M.D., spent his career speaking out on the brain damage caused by medicine's psychiatric treatments. Read his blog. I am always bewildered why folks submit to damaging their own brains.

In the 1957 article, a physicist states very clearly that people are in mental distress when their nerves are physically irritated. It is not in their mind. It is in their bodies! Why should people feel bad about themselves and feel as if they really have little control, especially when told to snap out of it!

The recent discovery that the limbic system extends into the spinal cord absolutely changes how we look at emotional health. It is more physiology than psychology. The spine actually fuels the brain like a windmill generating nerve energy. A lifetime of spinal restrictions is going to have a negative effect. Spinal care is critical for total health.

The group I was speaking to was completely astonished when I showed them old photos of chiropractic mental hospitals located all over the country. Look here for the photos.

They were also astonished when I said I never learned this in chiropractic college. I sought out this information on my own because of my own interest in promoting mental health in a way that is empowering.

Sadly, these hospitals are gone for numerous reasons. Drugs seemed to be the quick fix and chiropractors in the 1960's through today decided to put themselves in the limiting box of back care. To me this does a terrible disservice to those who are suffering with mental stress resorting to prescription pills that steal their freedom.

For more information, ask me for a consult.

Why Prevention Programs Miss the Mark

(Auburn, NY, chiropractic healing news)

Dr. Candace Pert has been one of the most influential "new biology" researchers in our time. If you ever want to read a good book about the evolution of health care thinking, open up her book titled Molecules of Emotion.

The following quote from pg 285 demonstrates how she grew as a lifelong learner from the restraining halls of the “old science” laboratory to her independence as a mind-body researcher. She also explains why I believe most prevention programs are insufficient:

“For most of us, the very words healthy lifestyle conjures up images of low-fat meals, daily exercise regimens, and the elimination of alcohol, tobacco, and recreational drugs. While these are good, health enhancing strategies—and I’ll have something to say about them from the point of view of the peptide network – what’s missing for most of us is any focus on ongoing, daily, emotional self-care. We tend to deal with the physical aspects of keeping ourselves healthy and ignore the emotional dimension – our thoughts and feelings, even our spirits, our souls. Yet, in light of the new knowledge about emotions and the psychosomatic network, it’s obvious that they, too, are a part of our responsibility to manage our own health.”
She takes a stance on science and spirit being compatible:

"I have come to believe that science, at its very core, is a spiritual endeavor." Pg. 315
She shows how we can take charge of our health by understanding the power of our psychology. But we tend to ignore this reality because it can't be grasped in an x-ray, blood test or prescription pad. Most doctors know who will do well and who will suffer. Even with total compliance with a doctor's instructions there are those who will worsen or die because they are disconnected from the non-physical aspects of their existence which ultimately disconnects them from the their physical body parts that keep them alive and healthy.

How does this translate into everyday life? We can begrudgingly follow a prevention type lifestyle with our emotional hearts feeling a cold reception, especially when fear is the motivator. There is a mutual exchange of gratitude between the physical and nonphysical that makes up the living person. If this energy is not cherished and nurtured, both the body and "Thinking-Feeling-Expressive-Spirit" will die...and not always at the same time.

This is why prevention programs do only half the job and people still get frustrated with their results. Drug companies capitalize on this fact. Listen to the ads that say diet and exercise are not enough. They are correct but a drug will never nurture your Thinking-Feeling-Expressive-Spirit.

Go back to your prevention plan and tweak a few things. Ask your chiropractor to help you get over the plateau. Get adjusted more often because it is the most unique way to reconnect your body with your Thinking-Feeling-Expressive-Spirit. Remind yourself that the little things you do add up even though they seem insignificant. This is the nurturing side of the Thinking-Feeling-Expressive-Spirit.

Dr. John Demartini has a great quote:
"Your bodies' signs and symptoms are a feedback mechanism to help you be true to yourself."
