Everyone Heals Differently

If You're Alive → You Are Healing

Give Your Healing Power Chiropractic T.L.C.

You may be younger than you think. Researcher Dr. John Frisen is now looking at the age of different tissue types in the human body and finding out how old they are. Many tissues and cells have a constant turnover rate but that rate seems to vary greatly from body part to body part with some parts not renewing at all.  Based on the average human tissue renewal our bodies may only be 10-15 years old.
For example, cells from rib muscles in an individual in their late 30’s was shown to be an average of 15.1 years old. Cells lining your gut were found to be only days old but the deeper cells were found to be 15.9 years old.
Cornea of Eye 24 hours
Villi of Intestines 2-3 days
Lining Stomach 5 days
Taste Buds 10 days
Lining Lungs 14-21 days
Outer Skin/Epidermis 14-28 days
Deeper Skin 90 days
Red Blood Cells 120 days
Liver 300-500 days
Alveoli of Lungs 365 days
Bones 10 years
Rib Muscles 15.1 years
Deeper Gut 15.9 years
Most of Brain and Eyes Same as your birth age
Not Found to Renew: Cerebral Cortex, Inner lens of the eye.

Cells in most parts of the brain and spinal cord are found to be aged very similar to the age of the individual because these cells do not often regenerate. We are born with 100 billion cells in our brain and most do not regenerate or renew.
The importance of protecting and taking care of your spine and nervous system with regular chiropractic care is essential to keep these cells and your body healthy. Having a clear connection from the brain cells to the tissue cells is essential for optimal renewal and healing of your body. With regular chiropractic care your nervous system works to health tissues more efficiently.
Another way to look at it is to realize that healing takes time. Do not expect body parts to be renewed the next day if they really take 15 years to renew. All you can do is give your body an optimally functioning, clear nervous system, time to heal and do all that is necessary to foster that healing.
Researchers are trying to find methods to heal nervous system damage with stem cell injections and antibodies from the outside in but are finding it very challenging.

Stop Ignoring the "Silent Hurts" Especially in Your Children

I have no pain.....

But you have "Silent Hurts."

You let your kids play rough, watch them get up off the ground, and ignore it as if nothing bad is going on.  Below the surface cells are dying.  Yes, cells always die, but a mechanical distortion in the spine restricts nerve flow so the rebuilding does not occur when it is appropriately needed.

I call this the Silent Hurt.

Those blows, falls, wipe outs, heavy back packs, cell phone use all contribute to underlying damage that does not hurt.

I also see twenty year olds and thirty somethings who think they are immortal.  Their body runs on auto-pilot.  There is no auto-pilot.  The nerves need TLC.

I see people in their 50's who are disabled who told me, "I never had a health concern in my life.
Why now?"

This is what chiropractic has to offer:
Chiropractic is the opportunity to replenish the life sustaining conditions through the nervous system that promotes healing.  We can't use it just once or twice.  Chiropractic is an important health habit.

Learn more about it.

What Joint Pain Really Means --This is Important

Mild pain? Nagging pain?  Chronic pain? Your joint pain is an auto-immune disorder in the baby stages. You may already have an auto-immune disorder attacking other organs. The joints are not independent of the organs.  They all need the same things for healing.  All diseases are auto-immune so don't let pain progress. The prevention, treatment and cure are all the same.  The chiropractic approach offers you this.  Get in the office and learn what the Chiro-Wise Health Restoration Program can do for you.

What Happens When a Chiropractor Reads AARP Magazine?

(Chiropractic News, Auburn, NY)

I like reading AARP Magazine.  I've been reading them off and on for almost twenty years.  Now I get them regularly in my mailbox (as a secondary member on someone else's AARP membership......)

Here's what happens when a chiropractor reads the Febrary/March 2016 issue.

I first opened up to Jo Ann Jenkins' article about challenging the ingrained views of aging in society.  She turned 50 and was really happy about it.  When her friends gave her those nerdy "over the hill" greeting cards with the old age jokes, it stuck a chord with her.

In her early 50's she changed jobs and now is the CEO of AARP.  She authored the book Disrupt Aging and gave the reader a little taste of it in this article.

She said aging is just living.  It means living differently but it's about being alive,  She believes it is fairly odd to say 50 is the new 30.  Who wants to be 30 again?  Older people are awesome contributors to society.  New demands of aging are also kickstarting a new rash of innovations.  Life expectancy keeps increasing on average and the marketplace is growing with exciting products and technology that older people can enjoy.

This was a super inspiring article and I may read her book when I finish my pile of books already gathering dust by my bed.  This is the outlook we all need to have.  Let's just take on the next adventure.  In my chiropractic brain, this is what living is all about and rather than focus on illness, we need wellness to stay on the front burner of our minds.  When we are constantly tweaking the spine and nervous system with regular spine checks and chiropractic adjustments, we are better equipped to age and take part in the next adventure life offers us.

Next, I perused through the front of the magazine and came across the readers' letters.  People were commenting on previous articles highlighting famous actors.  We all love to read about actors, performers, musicians.

Then, I flip over to a drug ad.   Through a chiropractic lens, I'm not a fan of drugs.  After all, chiropractic is a drugless healing art.  But, business is business.  If a drug company wants to buy ad space, it doesn't bother me.  It doesn't influence me.  It does influence a high percentage of the population that have the drug mind-set.  That's why chiropractic exists.  People are still not exposed to the truths about vibrant living at the level of the brain and spine.  They don't know what enhances life and do more to damage their lives.  Just out of a lack of information.  It's my job to be more influential.

There's a short quip written by Jeremy Irons, another actor who is enjoying is aging.

On the next page there's a short article about 5 surprising reasons a person might have back pain.  Okay, here's the chiropractic part....not really.  It touches on stress, posture, and lack of exercise.  Short and sweet.

On the next page it tells you how to survive your first heart attack.  Wow!  Here's the whopper.  All this stuff about being bold and courageous in your years above age 50, but, there's a worry about your heart giving out,  Every 34 seconds someone has a heart attack.  Yikes.  I hate all this counting.  The best part of the article explains how heart attack symptoms are not so obvious in older people.  They don't get the classical chest pain or nausea, but rather confusion because there is less blood flow making it to the brain.

For me personally,  I don't like the push for people to take aspirin daily. The original study that started the craze  was flawed and people still don't know about the flaw.  They used aspirin buffered with Magnesium.  The magnesium is what protects the heart.  This is very misleading.

I recommend to anyone interested in heart health to read Dr. Sherry A. Rogers' books.  If you want to keep an emergency heart attack kit in your home, she recomends Magnesium and D-Ribose to protect yourself if you feel you are having a heart attack.  She explains this on pages 217-219. A number of studies came out that reported in the last 12 years showing daily aspirin does not change heart attack outcomes and may cause dangerous side effects.

Last but not least, I then read an article about various people over fifty changing jobs.  It's good to news to hear for people who need a better financial situation or need a change of scenery which are both healthier in the long run.  They gave good advice about networking and not giving up.

In conclusion, if you want to read AARP for years to come, make sure you have a chiropractor you see regularly.

And write in to AARP and tell them you want to see a special feature on Mark Sisson.  He has mastered the primal diet for a modern world which is another fabulous way to redefine aging.

What If You Changed Your View?

Palpating someone's spine, I find loads of trigger points and a really "cemented" spine that lacks such movement that the person is depressed and full of unexplained pain.

As I was working with someone a few days ago, I noted out loud, "A drug does not change this.  A drug contributes to this."

The person is going to need a great deal of massage, physical therapy and mainly chiropractic.  Also since a chiropractic adjustment cannot energize dead tissue, it "ain't much better" with weak, starved, poisoned tissue.  We need to feed the tissues, not drug them.

It's a simple paradigm.  Give the body what it needs.  It needs nerve energy and nutrient energy.

Call the office.  Change the way you look at the world.
