The Six Steps to Wellness
The Journey To a Healthy You…
When you come to our clinic, we will address all of the negative factors that are affecting your health. We evaluate your body individually to create a health program just for your body. There are six keys to creating superior health. The answer to “how do you live a healthy life in an unhealthy world” is the Six Steps to Wellness. This comprehensive program – the result of thirty five years of intensive research is – your key to better health.
The Six Steps to Wellness Are…
Your central nervous system is the central highway for information in your body. Every function of your body from the activation of muscles for movement to the digestion of food in the intestines is controlled and managed by this system. If a vertebra of your spine is impinging on a nerve, then the information being sent through those nerves is not getting out to the body the way it should. This means that the body is then working at a level that is sub-optimal.
Nerve interference happens when nerves or tissues are impinged by the vertebrae that surround them, causing a decrease in the information signals that are being sent through those nerves. It is very similar to a kink in a water hose, in that information is only slowly trickling through those nerves. This blockage can be caused by physical, chemical or emotional traumas to the body.
Re-aligning the vertebrae of the spine is the real foundation of health. Most people’s health can be greatly improved simply by restoring that information highway that runs through the nervous system of the body.
In our clinic, we will determine the areas of nerve interference and correct them through a series of chiropractic adjustments. In doing this we hope to restore health and life energy to the body. There are many tools and techniques that we utilize to rebalance the body in a painless manner.
Can electromagnetic fields (EMF) from power lines, home wiring, airport and military radar, substations, transformers, computers and appliances cause brain tumors, leukemia, birth defects, miscarriages, chronic fatigue, headaches, cataracts, heart problems, stress, nausea, chest pain, forgetfulness, cancer and other health problems?
Numerous studies have produced contradictory results, yet some experts are convinced that the threat is real.
Dr. David Carpenter, Dean at the School of Public Health, State University of New York believes it is likely that up to 30% of all childhood cancers come from exposure to EMFs. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) warns “There is reason for concern” and advises prudent avoidance.”
Martin Halper, the EPA’s Director of Analysis and Support says “I have never seen a set of epidemiological studies that remotely approached the weight of evidence that we’re seeing with EMFs. Clearly, there is something here.”
So what is the big deal? The frequency of household current is 60 hertz; the human brain runs on 1-2 htz when sleeping and 18-22 htz during intense thinking. The electromagnetism of appliances, electrical devices, computers, cell phones, radios, and other electrical devices are not compatible with human cellular function. “The current from these appliances disrupts a healthy human electric current and can actually cause cellular mutation.” We utilize certain techniques and tools to help you shield yourself from the harmful effects of electromagnetic pollution.
Research over the past 20 years has clearly shown that our early nutrition significantly influences our genes, affecting our health as adults. Poor nutrition can lead to programming for an early onset of cardiovascular disease, degenerative brain diseases or even cancer. Based on this research, it is reasonable to assume that good nutrition during our developmental years can program genes for good health later in life as well, allowing us to avoid serious diseases. The results of good nutrition are enhanced through each generation because our nutrition improves the genetic health of our reproductive cells.
Extensive scientific studies on nutrition and nutritional supplementation have demonstrated that many disorders associated with aging can be avoided, or at least significantly reduced, by following simple nutritional guidelines and avoiding behaviors that increase our risk. A program of good health will reduce disease and complications of disease at any age.
In a report published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, 100 grams of sugar from glucose, fructose, sucrose, honey or orange juice caused a significant decrease in the ability of white blood cells to engulf and destroy bacteria. This decrease in immune function was still present five hours after sugar was consumed” Specific nutrition has been developed to correct the deficiencies, inadequacies, and toxicities. To rebalance nutrition it is important to:
A. Reset Adrenals & the General Adaptive Syndrome (GAS)
B. Replenish Nutrition for Organs, Glands or Systems Weakness.
C. Reduce Infective Organisms in the Body.
D. Replace Enzymes and/or HCL to Aid Digestion, Assimilation and Elimination.
E. Restore Proper Bowl Flora to Optimize Colon Function
ALLERGIES & SENSITIVITIES
Stop suffering from allergies!
Allergies are a reaction to a particular substance which on contact causes the body to react by activating histamines and other defenses in the immune system. This occurs in order to attack the ‘invading’ substance. It’s not the substance that’s the problem; it’s the emotional link associated with the substance that is creating the effect. Of course, toxins and poisons play a significant role, however, the key is the underlying emotional link associated with them. Allergies can often be eliminated once the emotional link is erased and the toxins eliminated. Along with a supportive process of reducing overall stress levels, there are a few additional things that a person can do so that they are no longer at the mercy of their allergies. These things include: sleep and rest, exercise and vitamins, drinking good water, and diet and eating habits.
In our office, we utilize a technique that can effectively minimize the immune system’s responses to allergens and in some cases completely reset the body’s learned response mechanism. How is this accomplished? With our new allergy protocol, we will scan your body and register the list of stimulants that cause a negative reaction in your body. Then through the use of the cold laser, the body’s frequency is reset to normal response status and the allergic response mechanism is bypassed. Since there is no current or chemical introduced into the body, the protocol is safe for people of all ages.
Mind Over Matter
“Genes and DNA do not control our biology; instead DNA is controlled by signals outside the cell, including the energetic messages emanating from our positive and negative thoughts.”
Little is generally understood by most people about the complete functions of the nervous system’s importance in health and its influence on what is termed ‘disease’. Initially, in 1896 D.D. Palmer, the originator of chiropractic care, discovered that there were three causes to disease: emotional trauma, subluxation of the vertebrae, and nervous impingement. In our experience, subluxation is caused by emotional trauma and it is the related stress that it creates in the nervous system that ‘pulls’ the muscles etc, to cause the subluxation. We have found that reoccurring skeletal issues don’t resolve until the underlying emotional issue behind it has been resolved.
Why all of this can occur is because our neurological system has a ‘mind of its own.’ This ‘mind’ has the capacity to not only direct our bodily functions such as balance, heart rate, body temperature, sex drive, and sleep, (which are outside of our direct control but influenced by our thoughts and ideas), but the nervous system also responds to external stimuli as well as emotions and beliefs surrounding traumatic situations and events. This response capacity includes the creation of ‘neurological programs’ which it creates based on its interpretation of the situation surrounding each shock or trauma event and the intended outcome that is determined to make the body adapt to the stressor.
Traditional medicine is allopathic in nature, meaning that it blocks all symptoms. Homeopathic medicine is designed to aid the body in the augmentation of symptoms so that the neurological programming event can take place. It has been said: “Time heals all wounds!” And that is true. The issue we have now found, however, is that the longer it takes to heal the event the worse or more dramatic the symptoms can become! Healing from the inside out requires that the Nervous System be engaged in the process of healing. This is pure healing from the INSIDE OUT!
Cleaning Our Bodies!
The world we live in today is so much more polluted than it was 100 years ago. On a daily basis, we are accumulating toxins in our bodies. It is not a question of if we are accumulating toxins every day but rather how much of a toxic load are we accumulating. Environmental toxins can lower our immune system and “open the gate” to disease. They can place the last straw on the camel’s back in causing dysfunction. When the detoxification processes of the liver are impeded, it results in a manifestation of disease, depending on where the toxins exert their effect.
The toxicity caused by many poisons found in nature, as well as man-made toxins, are known to do their damage, in large part, by generating free radicals within tissues. For example, aluminum has been shown to trigger an enormous number of free radicals in tissues, especially in brain tissue. The same is true for iron, lead, mercury, and cadmium. Free radical accumulation can be reversed by supplementing antioxidants found in certain foods and vitamin supplements. This will assist the body in returning to health.
All of these toxins that we are accumulating on a daily basis are taking a major toll on our health. In our office, we utilize a number of tools and techniques to help assist the body in detoxification. We use nutritional supplementation, homeopathic remedies, ionic footbaths, cold laser therapy, and much more.
You may benefit from the footbath if you suffer from:
- Chronic Pain
- Autoimmune Diseases
Regular detoxification is also a good way to maintain a general feeling of wellbeing and overall health. Schedule a foot bath today!
