Are you funcioning in an altered state of consciousness?

Posted by Marietta chiropractor on August 27, 2014

You could be.

You already know that Americans take more drugs of any kind of any other country on the planet.  In fact, ALL the other countries in the World COMBINED take a mere fraction of the drugs that Americans do.  A large portion of those drugs are for diagnosed psychiatric conditions, including Depression, ADD/ADHD, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc.  Another large portion of those drugs are for pain and other symptoms, and some are taken for chronic health conditions.  Some are prescribed and some are bought over the counter. 

But there’s one thing they ALL have in common, they alter your (and your body’s) state of consciousness.  That’s right.  Every drug you take affects how you see the world.  And how you see the world, determines your thoughts, emotions and actions.

Look.  I’m not saying all medications are bad…in the short term.  What I AM saying is that drugs work BECAUSE they are designed to convince your body it either has something it’s not supposed to have or doesn’t have something it should.  In other words, drugs trick your body into behaving a certain way, whether that is altering chemical levels, suppressing normal immune function or directly affecting your brain and nervous system.

Without saying ANYTHING about all the potential hazards and side-effects posed by taking ANY drug, the long term affect of altering your body’s normal responses to even a single problem can be devastating.  Whether it’s diminished function of a particular system in the body or bad decision making or outright addiction, they all lead to a lower quality of life for you, your friends and associates, and your family members.  When you multiply that by the tens of millions of people taking drugs/medications, you can see the potential harm to an entire culture.

The thing I love most about Chiropractic is that it’s purpose is to help you function at a higher lever NO MATTER what your current circumstance may be.  And the longer you function at higher levels of awareness, the better your life can be.  Imagine how different your life would be right now and how much better it could be if you improved your thoughts, decisions and actions could improve by just 10%.  I think it would be remarkable.

Do what you can to get clean and stay clear.  Your life will thank you for it.

A Different Way

I’m a chiropractor today because of one child who’s parents let the Medical specialists do a hemispherectomy and one child who got adjusted and is now a fully functioning normal adult. I still shed a tear for the first child.  I still rejoice with and for the second.

Clear Thinking and Chiropractic

Posted by Marietta chiropractor on August 18, 2014

A Different Way

I know what you’re thinking.  “What the heck is this guy talking about?  Clear thinking and chiropractic?  You must be kidding!  I thought chiropractors were about back pain and stuff like that.”  And, there are lots of folks (including many chiropractors) that think the same thing.

Truth is that if you see a chiropractor just for your back pain, you’re really missing the boat and your chiropractor is cheating you out of the greatest benefit of what he/she has to offer you.  And chances are they’re simply giving you what your insurance company is paying for, symptom relief.  Sadly, many chiropractors (all kinds of doctors, actually) sell you lots of stuff you don’t need simply because your insurance company is paying for it.  Sorry chiropractors.  It’s just true.

Let me explain.  Most chiropractors are trained to locate and correct a misalignment in the bones of the spine (vertebra) that is…

Your Mama Was Right: Posture Matters!

Posted by Marietta chiropractor on August 11, 2014

From an old post. But always relevant!

A Different Way

Almost everyone has a memory of their mom (or dad) constantly reminding them to “Stand up straight! You don’t want to grow up with bad posture. Do you?” Or as one of my friends puts it, “Stand up straight and act like somebody!” While most parents dutifully admonish their kids to stand tall, they may not realize just how important that advice really is. There are many reasons why good posture matters, including self-esteem, career performance, even significant health considerations.

Let’s talk about how your posture affects several aspects of your life. At the end of the article, we’ll offer some tips on how you can start today to improve your posture and your life.

How you approach the world has a tremendous impact on how you feel about yourself. What’s the first impression you have of someone with slumped shoulders or their head drooping down? Honestly, that person is…

Better weekends?

Posted by Marietta chiropractor on August 9, 2014

Want to have better weekends?  Tired of merely recovering from the past week and resting up for the next one?  That seems like a drag.

Well, one way to make sure you have better weekends is to see you chiropractor every Friday.  That’s right.  A weekly visit to your chiropractor will make sure your body and mind are working closer to their potential allowing you to do more, be more and enjoy more of your life…not only on the weekend but every day of the week.

If you’re going to the chiropractor merely to deal with pain or other symptoms OR to prevent injury or illness, you’re missing the greatest part of what your chiropractor can do for you!

So if you want more for (and from) your life, ask your chiropractor about the value of lifelong chiropractic checkups.  Better yet, call me.

Chemical Imbalance?

Posted by Marietta chiropractor on August 8, 2014

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

A Different Way

OK.  So why in the heck is a chiropractor talking about chemical imbalance in the first place?  Don’t they deal with the spine and bones?  And, what am I going to learn about my chemical imbalances by reading this blog post, anyway?  Great questions!

I’m a different kind of chiropractor.  My focus is on how your body functions…your WHOLE body.  I deal primarily with the top bone in your neck BECAUSE it affects virtually every function in and of your body, especially your body chemistry.  “How?” you say.  The top bone in the spine, called the Atlas, can cause pressure on your brain stem.  Pressure on your brain stem can affect the function of your hypothalamus is connected to both your endocrine (hormone) and nervous system and plays a vital role in the process known as homeostasis, or the dynamic steady state (balance) throughout the body.

Misalignment of the top…
