Stress and Chiropractic


Can Chiropractic help with PTSD?


The nervous system is constantly recording and memorizing cues from our environment; especially stressful and life-threatening events. The neurological stress response that was activated during the initial event may resurface if something triggers a memory of that event. This is called a sympathetic stress response, and it can bring with it the emotions associated with that event.


This may include anger, fear, hostility, depression or anxiety. Along with the emotions there is a physiological response, which includes high blood pressure, increased heart rate, poor digestion, poor immune function, irritability, and changes in posture.


The greater the stressor is, the more the event harms the nervous system. Some events can be completely debilitating, while others create smaller changes in the nervous system that tend to stack up over time. The fact is that everyone suffers from stress.


Chiropractic is designed to remove harmful stress patterns from the nervous system and reduce the damage done by stress. This is why so many people choose to adopt regular Chiropractic care.

“After my first adjustment I felt an energy change in my body and mind. I can feel the interplay between my mind and body becoming progressively more well-tuned.” -J.T.

Acid Is Killing You


Acid Is Killing You


What is one of the major differences between healthy people and sick people? The pH of body fluids in a sick person compared to a healthy person is very different. The normal pH of the blood in humans is between 7.35-7.45. Any pH above or below this range can put an individual at risk for disease. The ideal pH level for the blood is slightly alkaline at about 7.4.

Most research shows that people with health problems are slightly acidic and healthy people are more alkaline. This is because the body is unable to heal completely from disease if the pH of the blood is acidic. Total healing of chronic illness only takes place when and if the blood is restored to a normal, slightly alkaline pH. Prolonged imbalance of pH can lead to things like: hormone concerns, cardiovascular weakness, weight gain/loss,
bladder and kidney concerns,
immune deficiency,
acceleration of free radical damage, brittle bones, joint discomfort,
stressed liver function,
low energy,
slow digestion and elimination, and tumor growth. Having a slightly alkaline pH of body fluids is vital to maintaining health. The truth is everyone has different nutrient requirements, but we all share one thing in common – we need to have alkaline blood to stay healthy.

An acidic pH decreases the body’s ability to absorb minerals and other nutrients. It will also decrease the energy production of cells, decrease the body’s ability to repair damaged cells, decrease it’s ability to detoxify heavy metals, make tumor cells thrive, and make it more susceptible to fatigue and illness. An overly acidic body is the primary indicator of a calcium deficiency in the body. So what can you do to correct this calcium deficiency and create a slightly alkaline pH within your body? The answer is in your drinking water.

Drinking water that has an alkaline pH level will help to raise the pH of your blood to a slightly alkaline level. AquaLyte is a product that is designed to turn ordinary drinking water into “healing water.” AquaLyte is made up of coral calcium from Okinawa, vitamin c and silver that transforms nutrient deficient water into the highest quality naturally alkalized drinking water.

Headaches: A Cause and a Cure


Can headaches be cured naturally?


There are several different “types” of headaches, but all headaches are warning signs that something’s not right in the body!


Tension headaches occur because of spinal misalignment and muscle tension in the neck. This creates a “tugging” motion on the dural membrane of the brain and spinal cord, and that’s what causes your head to ache.


Cluster headaches are often caused by pressure on the optic nerve, and this is why it hurts behind the eyes. The sphenoid bone can become misaligned and press on this nerve. Because the sphenoid bone moves in direct correlation to the tailbone, a Chiropractic adjustment to the tailbone is often indicated.


Migraine headaches occur due to changes in blood flow in and around the brain. The first bone in the neck, the atlas, can become misaligned and press on the spinal cord creating an increase in blood pressure.


A hypersensitive nervous system makes people more susceptible to “triggers” such as smells and foods. Abnormal pressures and stresses on the spine will damage the spinal cord and spinal nerves. This can lead to symptoms such as headaches, food sensitivities, abnormal changes in blood pressure, and much more.


Oftentimes a headache can be eliminated by simply drinking a glass of water, but neurologically based corrective Chiropractic care has demonstrated fantastic results for those suffering from headaches. Just ask our practice members!


Insurance: does it cover Chiropractic?


Does insurance cover Chiropractic care?

Insurance is designed to cover the expenses associated with treatment aimed at ameliorating the symptoms of diagnosed medical conditions. The Medical industry relies upon treating symptoms and assumes that no unpleasant symptoms indicates good health.

Chiropractic believes that health is more than treating symptoms. It’s allowing the body to come into alignment naturally. Chiropractic focuses on function rather than feeling, and recognizes that dysfunction and disease processes can occur in the absence of symptoms.

Chiropractic is the only profession in which someone locates and corrects the major source of interference in how your body functions. When you have that interference removed you function at a higher level. Chiropractors are the ONLY ones who can locate and remove that interference, and we know that to be a subluxation.

Insurance is not designed to cover the maintenance and promotion of health. A Harvard study showed that the leading cause of bankruptcy is Medical bills, which affects 2.5 million Americans annually. Nearly 78% of these had health insurance.

The Huffington post stated, “Retired couples would need $416,000 for health care costs if their drug costs were average. If that same couple lives longer than three-quarters of retirees, the estimate rises to $614,000.”j

Research has proven that those under consistent Chiropractic care have up to 400% increased immune function, have 85% less pharmaceutical costs, 50% fewer medical provider visits, and spend only 31% of the national average for health care!

Are YOU going to put your health in the hands of the insurance companies? Or are YOU going to put it into your OWN hands?

Lifetime Chiropractic


Why choose lifetime Chiropractic care?

As a Chiropractor I’m often asked this question. My simple answer is that Chiropractic care is for everyone and for all ages. Eating a healthy diet and exercising is important for maintaining a healthy body, and so is regular Chiropractic care.

The human body is the most advanced precision equipment on the planet, and all precision equipment requires periodic tune-ups. A violin is the perfect example. The tone or tension of the strings literally determines the pitch of sound that is produced.

The human nervous system controls all healing and function in the body. Every heart beat. Every movement. Even the regulation of hormones and energy levels. It is literally an electrical communication device that travels through nerves.

Consider this: the brain produces 65 trillion chemicals per second. It consists of 100 billion nerve cells with 1000 trillion nerve connections. It is the equivalent of a computer with a 1-trillion bit-per-second processor! It contains up to 1,000 terabytes of memory. For comparison, the U.S. Library of Congress consists of 19 million volumes and this is about 1 terabyte worth of computer memory.

Your nervous system consists of your brain, spinal cord, and all the nerves that run throughout your body. It is responsible for causing your heart to beat over 100,000 times per day and your kidneys to filter your blood up to 300 times per day. It allows us to breathe 7 quarts of air per minute and regulate the 35 million digestive glands within our stomachs. That a big responsibility and this is why it’s so important to keep it healthy!

When the brain, spinal cord, and the nerves are stretched, pinched, or twisted it creates a disturbance in this information highway, and eventually leads to chronic disease, symptoms, and eventually an early death.

Many believe the myth that “feeling good” equates to “being healthy.” I say that health is about function, not feeling. That means that you can feel good, but still not be healthy. This is why 50% of Americans suffer from cardiovascular disease and 40% will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their life. Most don’t realize they are developing heart disease or cancer until they have a heart attack or discover a large tumor growing in their brain for example! This is why it is important to have the health of your nervous system checked on a regular basis by a Chiropractor who specializes in keeping the nervous system healthy and functioning optimally.

Research has proven that those under consistent Chiropractic care have up to 400% increased immune function, have 85% less pharmaceutical costs, 50% fewer medical provider visits, and spend only 31% of the national average for health care!

Only Chiropractors are trained to be able to adjust the spine in order to “re-tune” or calibrate your nervous system. Not all Chiropractors are alike, and it is important to choose a Chiropractor who is congruent with your health goals.

Come in sometime for a tune-up and see for yourself!

What are natural ways to fight arthritis?


Arthritis - Creative ChiropracticArthritis can result from many factors including skeletal misalignment, poor diet, wear and tear to joints from harmful activities or injuries, and a hyper-sensitive immune system. It is important to address arthritis from all angles to maximize your ability to heal and function properly.

An anti-inflammatory diet is essential to reducing the symptoms of arthritis. Inflammatory foods create a “fire” in the body that will make joints hurt, blood vessels damaged, and organs malfunction. Be sure to avoid the four most inflammatory foods:

  • Sugary Foods
  • Grains (brown rice and gluten-free is a good alternative)
  • Cow’s Dairy (especially milk)
  • Processed Meats

Aim to include high amounts of fresh, organic fruits and vegetables as well as grass-fed meats. A high quality fish oil or cod liver oil supplement is extremely important to battling inflammation in the body. Go for a liquid form instead of the pill, as the pill may become rancid without you realizing it. Bromelain, Serrapeptase, Ginger, and Curcumin are great additions to help you defeat the effects of inflammation.

Chiropractic adjustments will improve your skeletal alignment and reduce unnecessary wear and tear on joints as well as help to balance your immune system function. A properly functioning nervous system is essential to staying healthy and balanced, and that’s what Chiropractic is all about!
