2021: Reaffirm Your Vision, Purpose, and Mission

It's a good time of the year to reaffirm what's important to you. 

Happy New Year to all my loyal Practice Members. 

Here's my Statement for 2021:

Why Am I a Chiropractor?

What Can Chiropractic Do For You?

To Stop the Fear

To Reacquaint You with Your Body

To Teach You Why Everything the Body Does is Correct

To Teach You How to be a True Partner with Your Body

The adjustment calms the fear/stress response of the nervous system (calming hyperactive / frenzied brain waves).

The adjustment increases self awareness so you can appropriately evaluate your body's stress response sooner rather than later.

The adjustment helps you heal more efficiently.

The adjustment is much more effective when your body has adequate nutrients, movement, rest, and creative outlets.

Are you taking advantage of all that chiropractic offers you?

Not My Self Fulfilling Prophesy

Your self fulfilling prophesy is not my self fulfilling prophesy.
  Not to sound ungracious or uncaring, but I have my nervous system to protect.  

I guess that's just my side of stubborn. I don't want to add more harm to my life when I am working on undoing decades of harm.  Which is how my Ebook came to be.

My E-book is now out on kindle.  What Side of Stubborn: Why Do No Harm Means Undoing Decades of Harm

In one section of the book I discuss how difficult it is when sick people keep each other sick by the repetition of outdated, untrue health information.  

Getting back to the self fulfilling prophesy.  This study here from the University of Colorado demonstrates how our brains can interpret a stimulus to be more painful than it needs to be.  

If you expect pain, you will be in pain.  If you expect sickness you will get sick.  This is the self fulfilling prophesy.  

My son and husband have been sick at the same time with obnoxious colds that keep them home in bed.  I did not get sick while they were recovering.  Why?  Because  didn't expect to. If I kept my schedule balanced and didn't overreact to the situation, I did fine. 

I can pinpoint the times I was under the weather and knew exactly the stress that put me over the edge.  Getting ready for a trip once I had a cold.  I don't like planning trips and it makes me overthink things.  I had a  major flu when I began my outpatient internship.  I was angry because it was not going smoothly.  My dad had just died five months earlier, and I just wanted to finally graduate. 

Currently, the acute illness everyone is talking about gets too much media play.  The news outlets are showing the worst of the worst so your nervous system can't get out of fight or flight.  Unless you turn it off. 

I have chosen to disregard the "chicken little" reports that the sky is falling. The hospitals that are overrun with patients are singled out and highlighted.  I know that is not happening in the entire country.  Sometimes I have to decide that not every news story is my business.  I can only help the people around me, in  my town.  if other places have mismanaged their resources, what can I personally do about it?

There are so many statistical goof ups where the CDC is changing the numbers.  Podcasts interviewers are pointing out that the death counts have remained the same year by year and world wide the illness is mild for 99.5%.

Front line doctors are trying to talk about their successes and share with the public how simple medicines are very effective.  I don't like it that these positive stories are quickly ignored.  We deserve to hear second and third opinions. 

I also understand what makes someone succumb to the cytokine storm that scientist are making a buzz about.  Sadly, many people have been misinformed about preventive health or ignored their health altogether and are suffering from severe signs of acute toxic reactions. 

My take home message here is that I have been working through my own coping strategies to protect my health and shield myself from too many people crying wolf.  I will teach others how to plan their own coping, as well. 

As I've said before, I don't want to wind up my nervous so badly that it takes its revenge and harms my health.  I am taking care of my nervous system. 

I have a plan in place to move my brain, feed my brain and talk to my brain.  

I will share my strategy in Brain Sense Tele-Health sessions. 

I do understand how the brain can memorize patterns that can backfire and cause someone to become sick. I am doing the reverse. 

The self fulfilling prophesy I want to employ is one that manages stress, makes peace with the modern world and instills an unplugged relaxation routine.  

Two books that I found mesmerizing about how you can use your brain to your best advantage come to mind. 

Cure: A Journey In To The Mind Over Body, by Jo Marchant

The Brain That Changes Itself by Norman Doidge

If you need to feel good about the body God gave you.  If you need confidence that you can improve your health, these are two books that inspire me. 

If you share your story with me, I can help you make a plan.

Viruses Don't Matter When Nature is Respected


This is a follow up post from a video I made last week highlighting particular quotes Royal Lee, and Weston A. Price made during their careers about those pesky diseases.

Currently in my county as of December 7, 2020 the number of active C V cases compared to the entire county population = 00.050%
There are 17 in the hospital, (0.022% of the entire county population).  There are 179 staffed beds (average), so 9.5% of the hospital has positive tested individuals under their care.  Many are discharged in a matter of days.   "Worldometer" still shows 99.5% of cases are mild. 

Do you wonder why only chronically sick people are at risk?  

Do you wonder why these illnesses come and go with the seasons?

I have wondered about this my entire adult life but really it wasn't on my radar.  People seem to get sick together, on occasion, but not everybody.  We need to keep asking these important questions.

I thought about looking into the past to read what Royal Lee and Weston A. Price thought about it.  They contributed amazing information regarding nutrition and health, yet, it seems to be dismissed in our modern time.  

The population is not healthy, that's for sure.  It seems we are a sicker nation. There are multiple reasons for this as layers of stress are piled on us every year.  Rather than put the blame on a partially understood viral fragment, we should be reducing unnecessary stress and building up our tissue resilience.

Our many layers of stress come from air pollution, pollution in our food, work stress, travel stress, toxins in our medicines, news media always blaring bad news, etc. 

With these summaries of quotes from the videos, I offer a key correlation between food quality and resilience. 

Royal Lee

Many of these excerpts are taken from 

From Soil To Supplement, A Course in Food, Diet, and Nutrition: Taught by Dr. Royal Lee, by Mark Anderson

Fever accompanies acute illness.  Fevers are especially seen in children.  Here are some excerpts from Royal Lee regarding fevers:

1- Calcium bicarbonate deficiency is seen with recurrent fevers

2- Calcium deficiency fevers are seen during rapid bone growth in children

3- Pasteurized milk causes fevers

4- Calcium deficiency is seen in nervous children and children coughing at night

5- There are good reasons to believe that no virus infection can occur unless the calcium levels of the body fluids have dropped below a certain limit

6- Exogenous sugar in the diet promotes susceptibility to virus, or bacterial disease

What about polio?

7- "Soft drinks and ice cream" contribute to polio since glucose, syrup, impairs the assimilation of calcium

8- Dr. Benamin Sandler is mentioned by Dr. Royal Lee in regards to Dr. Sandler's book: Diet Prevents Polio (1949)  Dr. Sandler also noted tuberculosis patients improved when sugar was taken out of the diet. 

9- Royal Lee also found that a particular nutrient triad of ionized calcium, Vitamin F, and Vitamin C Complex helps the body "knock out" flu, viruses, and bacterium.  Read here from Judy Stone.  (Don't know what Vitamin F is?  Ask me.)

More from Dr. Royal Lee in 1955:  

10- In all parts of the globe where the native population had changed from their natural foods to the use of commercial products, there began the infiltration of those dreaded diseases, tuberculosis, pneumonia, and influenza ... exactly parallel to the increase in their use of commercial foods. It made no difference whether the change took place in a high valley in the Swiss Alps or in an island of the sea in the Eastern or Western hemisphere. The identically same results followed the introduction of commercial foods of civilized man.

Even Malaria: 

11- In recent tests mosquitos refused to bite persons who were well supplied with Vitamin B1.  He states that malnutrition is a basic cause of malaria.

Weston A. Price

What did Weston A. Price find out from his research?  He studied various groups of people who were isolated from modern agriculture and food processing.

1- Weston A. Price didn't agree with the idea that tuberculosis was contagious or inherited.  (He wasn't the only doctor with this opinion, either.) He believed it was due to poor lung development when living on a diet of processed foods.  These people also had poor facial bone development as well. Dead tissue in the lungs were consumed by bacteria that become proliferative as the need arises to digest this unwanted tissue.  (Even Royal Lee called germs scavengers) 

My editorial inserted here: The body needs to be able to detox and expel wastes.  When this important function is hindered, disease can overtake the body.

2- TB seemed prevalent in villages where thatched roofs  lacked  chimneys.  Yet when the health departments rectified that and installed chimneys to clear out the smoke from the living quarters, TB cases did not decrease.  It was due to the processed diets that the villagers transitioned to over time. 

3- Native Africans did not get malaria, yet European tourists did.

This information can be obtained from The Contagion Myth by Thomas Cowan and Sally Fallon, Chapter 3.  

My take home message here is that we should be asking why are stronger people not getting sick during this current acute illness crisis?  What stands out as a major difference?  

Why is David Brownstein getting superb results and his patients are not going to the hospital? Read Here. 

Why does David Hanscom teach people that the nervous system is key to bouncing back from stress?  He emphasizes how modern life, giving in to social pressures and watching the news shuts down our immune system.  Read Here.

When we understand our personal role at each level of the Four Functional Levels of the Nervous System, we have truly taken taken control of our health with confidence.  Want to learn more? Sign up for your first Brain Sense Tele-Health session.

End Your Day With An Energy Surplus


I've got pretty amazing energy tonight.  I am going to walk the dog soon for her nightly stroll and I am looking forward to it. 

I think back to the times I was exhausted by 3 PM waiting for my second wind.  Also I would feel  ready for bed before dinner and remain unmotivated all night. I had to talk myself into doing one final chore before bed.  

This was going on for decades.  Decades.  I thought it was normal....  How many times a day do you talk yourself into getting a task done? Do you do it  with  a smile?  Along with the crappy energy I've noticed I had a miserable mood.  

I got my blood sugar under control, finally.  I had no idea I had blood sugar problems.  This is potential disease ignored by the mainstream. 

I had to do some pretty drastic things to get where I am today.  But it's so much better.   And, by the way.  It wasn't drastic at all.  It was necessary steps to health.  But most people have a twisted understanding of normal.  Which makes it harder to try some life style changes especially when they fail.  

That's why I now teach people about the four levels of function of the nervous system and how they can evaluate their "hang ups" at each level so better results are attained. 

One new change I incorporated three days ago is I am trying a new detox approach.  I expected to be tired, but I feel ready to go even though bed time is soon.  (I'll reveal more about the detox later.) 

It's nice to end your day with an energy surplus.  (I am still going to bed at my normal time.  I won't push it.) How about you?  Do you feel the same way?

Brain Sense Tele-Health is here.   Call me.

Why Do No Harm Means Undoing Decades of Harm

We have an overburdened health care system that helps you get somewhat better, but you fall through the cracks.

Q. Why?

A. 1- No one makes the time to give you what you really need.

2- What you really need cannot be patented or profited but it's still worthwhile.

3- What you really need comes from YOU with a little bit of education and coaching.

I know your story. I lived it. --Dr. Lisa

A Year of Brain Drain: How to Win It Back

Image Courtsey: 

One year ago we first heard about a strange illness in China.  We wondered and waited because, naturally, if you listen to the news long enough you will be told it is going to spread around the globe like wildfire.  

Did you quietly wait and wonder?  Did you recall the MERS or SARS1 episodes in years past?  Can't remember?

Were you listening to speculation as papers were published without peer review at lightning speed?

Now, we are constantly being berated to "keep your distance" but huddle together with a mask.  Or you're just being told to wear a mask no matter what.  People are worried about their jobs and their children's mental health. People are being asked to do things without proper discussion or freedom of choice.

What happens when you lose your ability to choose?  Recall the mouse studies from your psychology class.  Learned helplessness.  We know this is destructive to the nervous system.

What's the most dangerous thing that happened during this past year?

Nervous system damage and immune suppression through  chronic burn out of the fight or flight response. 

I implore everyone to learn how to not let their own nervous systems kill them. 

We have a chronic problem.  We've always had it.  But now it is worse. It's called stress.  But now the stress is piled high.   While the Limbic System is very efficient with fight or flight, it can become too efficient and overwhelming.  This makes us more susceptible to illness, especially acute sickness. 

To switch to a positive note, you have the ability to calm this part of the nervous system.  Follow the BFA Protocol to do this.  

Get your adjustments.  Get the right nutrition and concentrate on detoxing.  Train your brain.  Also, find your support group of like minded thinkers.  This is very valuable. 

Use the tools available her on the blog and get into the office for your "Graditune-Up."

What Side of Stubborn?: Now Out on Kindle

What Side of Stubborn?:  

Why Do No Harm Means Undoing Decades of Harm

Read on Kindle here 

I wrote this short e-book to reveal how I gave up a number of old ideas that were not serving me.  I left one side of stubborn to join another side that has given much better quality of life.  The downside was that I took so long to get where I am today.  I know others are in the same boat with their health frustrations. I know they are falling through the cracks. 

This why I have launched Brain Sense Tele-Health in order to reach more people with this liberating information.

This is a coaching service that helps people discover the missing pieces in their self care routine.  

It can be challenging when you are doing everything supposedly right and you are not getting the results you want.  Sometimes what works for someone else isn't working for you.  Isn't that frustrating? We can work on the hidden reasons your brain is stuck in a negative pattern and ignoring the healing care you are providing. 

If you're ready to learn more about your own body's great healing ability, let's make an appointment.  

Half Healthy is Still Half Sick.  Half a Solution is Still Half a Problem.
