Your Independence- It's Up to You

Last week my daughter had some funky skin issue, she is all better now! I had to go to a few different pharmacies to pick up some topical goop for her. I had to go to 3 different pharmacies. It was unbelievable, but I've seen it before, how overfilled all of the bins were from A-Z with prescribed medication. Don't get me wrong, some of them are lifesaving- but it is time to grab your independence from the pharmaceutical industry and not just except what the medical community tells you often. What they tell you is "You have to live with you aches, pains, headaches, back pain, etc., etc."

Fortunately, so much of our chronic problems can be helped with chiropractic. The makers of Advil certainly don't want to promote chiropractic because their will be less chronic pain. Grab on to your independence from constantly taking pain medication for things that quite possibly and very often can be helped with a combination of posture education, exercising, better ergonomics at work, getting adjusted, yoga, massaging, good nutrition and positive mental attitudes. 

As Independence Day approaches, lets all just raise our consciousness about this and let our bodies do the healing with a little help from chiropractic and other conservative approaches that are easily available. IT'S UP TO YOU!

Always remember and never forget- "If you have a fifth on the fourth, you may not be able to go fourth on the fifth"

Yours in good health,

Rejuvenation and Mother Nature

I walked outside of my house a few days ago and I was looking at our Pachysandra and it stopped me in my tracks. I was remembering how pathetic they looked as this past winter wore on. They really looked like they were dead and just never going to come back. But, their is this incredible force that we don't see and whether it's a universal being or mother nature- the Pachysandra came back and looked great. UNBELIEVABLE. 

And yet, their they are. In full bloom and looking grand. This invisible force that I am talking about also keeps our bodies going- non stop heart beating, new cells formed every few months, kidneys and liver working...they just keep on rejuvenating themselves to a degree. The innate wisdom of the body is mind boggling. 

As a chiropractor we always are in tune with this wisdom of the body: adjusting the spine and helping the bio-mechanics helps the innate wisdom of the body to function at a higher level. This is something that all of us take for granted but this miracle is a daily phenomenon in all of Gods creatures. 

So, take a few minutes today to contemplate the wonders of your human body. Please allow chiropractic to assist in the wonder. It is a blessing to deliver this to you all. Keep on enjoying the summer!

Yours in good health,

A Schlepping We Will Go...

When Mr. Caveman came back from a day of hunting Brontosauruses, he handed the meat to the Mrs. and then said to her " I need the heating pad, my back is killing me." When Mrs. Claudius finished doing the laundry for the family, she had to sit down for a half hour because her upper back was throbbing with pain. When Johnny comes home from school today and takes off his school bag/backpack that weighs 85 pounds, he needs to lie down for a few minutes because his mid-shoulder blade region is talking to him.

As you can see through the 1,000s of years that we have roamed the earth, fortunately the major percentage of human spinal suffering is caused by the day to day normal activities we do and the schlepping that we have in our lives all the time. 

This recurring schlepping causes muscle, mechanical, and functional inflammation as well as irritation, etc. etc. etc. 

So run, don't walk, to your chiropractor and allow him or her to rid your body from the "schlepping syndrome." With a little bit of effort, a little bit of repetition, and a little bit of education chiropractic can be a life changer.
