Hemorrhoids

Posted by Marietta chiropractor on March 27, 2015

I suffered for 20 yrs with hemorrhoids because of chronic subluxation. Since getting cleared (and staying clear) of subluxation, I haven’t had that “pain in the butt” ONCE in 25 years!

Do you have subluxation?

I Love Being a Chiropractor!

Posted by Marietta chiropractor on March 25, 2015

I DO love being a chiropractor. Just knowing that I have the ability to locate and remove an impediment to a person’s ability to express their health and their life as fully as possible is both awe-inspiring and humbling at the same time.

In these 15 years of practice, I’ve had the opportunity to work with folks with so many different challenges. It’s run the gamut from back pain and migraines to high blood pressure to constipation, seizures and ear infections. Of course, Chiropractic is not a treatment for any of those conditions or ANY medical condition, in fact. We know that the ONE thing that the chiropractor DOES do is to locate and correct vertebral subluxation. And when we DO what chiropractors were meant to do, people’s lives improve.

One of the things I appreciate most about Chiropractic is the awareness that everyone has the innate potential for better health and performance. Helping folks realize that their innate potential for expressing more life IS in my mind the greater part of my job as a chiropractor. AND realizing this fact helps my members make better life decisions only increases my value as their chiropractor.

One of the greatest benefits (to ME as a chiropractor) of adjusting a high school football and basketball team for five years was having kids get on the table EVERY week to get checked for subluxation whether they had symptoms or not. And having a teenager tell you that they not only feel better but PLAY better when they get adjusted is powerful confirmation that you’re on the right track.

Having practiced and studied Chiropractic for several years now, I understand that EVERYONE is better off without vertebral subluxation. Even more, I believe that EVERYONE deserves to have access to Chiropractic care regardless of age or condition, whether infant or geriatric and with or without symptoms. And, the only diagnosis needed is the presence of vertebral subluxation.

If you don’t have a chiropractor for yourself and your family, I urge you to find one.  Let me know if you need some help.  I know hundreds all over America.

Chiropractic and a Better Life

Posted by Marietta chiropractor on April 29, 2013

There’s not an aspect of your life that is not affected by your nervous system.  It doesn’t matter if it’s how your body functions, how your relationships work, how successful your career is or even your spiritual life.  In fact, I’ll be so bold as to say that your nervous system is THE physical link between your potential and your reality.

You see, your Central Nervous System (brain and spinal cord) is the first system in the body to develop when a woman becomes pregnant.  By virtue of that alone, every single tissue, organ and system in your body derives from your nervous system.  That just means that ANY stress on your nervous system will absolutely have a negative effect on how your body functions.

Even more important is the fact that how you perceive your inner and outer world directly affects the decisions you make at every level of your life.  A dirty filter makes for faulty decisions.  A pile of faulty decisions can mess up your life.  A lifetime of bad decisions can ruin your life and many others connected to you.  So, wouldn’t it make sense that a healthy nervous system is necessary for a healthy, whole and happy life?  Absolutely!

OK.  So where does the chiropractor come in?  Glad you asked.

While many people (including lots of chiropractors) think that chiropractic is best suited for back pain and headaches, that barely scratches the surface.  When a chiropractor makes a valid adjustment to the spine (primarily at the top of your neck) everything works better.  And, I mean EVERYTHING!  Sometimes, you may not notice it right away.  BUT, you ARE better right then, right there.  As time passes and you stay adjusted, you become well-adjusted.  THEN, life begins to look a whole lot different.

And, guess what.  You don’t even need symptoms to benefit from what a good chiropractor can do for you.  All you need is to be alive and to want to be MORE ALIVE!

So, how do you find this special kind of chiropractor?  The first clue is that they don’t advertise about pain or symptoms.  Their ad in the phone book might include ONLY their name, address and phone number.  They’re called “Principled” chiropractors or DE chiropractors or upper cervical chiropractors.  And if all else fails, you call or write me.  I’ll find one for you.

Till then, remember that “Nothing is bigger than LIFE!”

Chiropractic: It’s not a discussion…

I had a patient die this week

Posted by Marietta chiropractor on July 16, 2011

I had a client die this week.  I know the tile said a “patient”.  But, I titled the post that way so more people might read what I needed to say.

I was really bummed out until I started thinking about our relationship.  Linda had been referred to me by her husband whom I had met at the Chamber of Commerce.  He heard me talk about chiropractic and HBP and heart problems.  Linda had had a congenital heart defect.  At best, Linda was a 95 lb (probably 85 lb) weakling.  Her wrists and ankles were no bigger around than a corn stalk.

When she started, she complained of fibromyalgia and had a hard time walking any distance without tiring out.  She could not go to her Mary Kay conventions without a wheelchair and someone to help her.  Eventually, she shed the wheelchair but kept the meetings.  Her fibromyalgia mysteriously disappeared.  She was a sweet, cheerful little room that added light to my life and those around her.

Oh.  Linda had been under another chiropractor’s care in the past.  She wondered why I would adjust only one or two bones while her previous DC seemed to “click” every extremity joint and articulation of her spine.  Should loved our Principles and the beauty and simplicity of what we do.

While I’m sad at the loss of my friend and client, I know where the “other side” is for her AND that her life was improved for the few years we shared because of chiropractic.

Simply put, chiropractic works.  I never doubt it.

How Can a Roller Coaster Affect Your Health?

Posted by Marietta chiropractor on April 27, 2011

A new client came in yesterday complaining of dizziness and nausea since her recent trip to Six Flags.  Apparently, her kids convinced her to ride the roller coaster, Batman the Ride.  If you’ve ever ridden Batman, you know how fun, but jarring, it can be. You might not have known how dangerous it could be, though.

As much as I love roller coasters, the first time I rode Batman was the last.  I remember thinking while on the ride “Man.  This ride is rough!  I wonder how many people need an adjustment after getting off this thing?”  Apparently, more than I imagined.

My new client only experienced dizziness and nausea.  there have been a couple of reports of people dying of heart attacks after getting off the ride.  Truth is, that is entirely possible.  Not because the ride scared them to death, but because the neck trauma can damage the spinal cord at the level of the brain stem which affects all of your body’s vital functions, including heart rate, blood pressure and breathing.  That’s the part of the nervous system that was damaged when Christopher Reeve (Superman) fell off his horse and Dale Earnhardt hit the wall.

Oddly enough, it only took a simple, gentle adjustment at the top of the neck and my clients dizziness and nausea went away.  For most people, that very same adjustment can help their blood pressure, asthma, vertigo, acid reflux, ADD/ADHD, migraines, even hemorrhoids.  I know it seems strange that something that simple can be so powerful.  But, it is.  You just have to find the RIGHT chiropractor.

So, the next time you leave the amusement park with a sore neck or back, don’t ignore it.  Visit your chiropractor or get in touch with me to find you one.

What the Heck is a “Family Chiropractor”?

Posted by Marietta chiropractor on December 27, 2010

Isn’t a chiropractor a chiropractor?  Yes, of course.  but then again, maybe not so much.

Essentially, a chiropractor locates stress on the nervous system caused by a bone in the spine being out of alignment with the one above or below it.   Unfortunately, there are some chiropractors that don’t even do that.  And, many practicing chiropractors these days only do so for folks who complain of back pain or other kinds of joint problems.

But, there is a special breed of chiropractors that understand that those misalignments affect every member of the family whether they have symptoms or not.  “Family chiropractors” are those chiropractors who dedicate themselves to maximizing your family’s potential for health and performance.  Their fee systems are sometimes different to accommodate a family’s budget and based more on having a long-term relationship with you instead of short-term care plans based on what your insurance company might pay.

“Family chiropractors” will show you why everyone in your family needs chiropractic and why the approach is similar for everyone to the day old infant to the 90-year-old great grandparent.  they will also help you understand your body’s innate intelligence  and how and why you were made to be healthy.  A long-term relationship with a “Family chiropractor” will help you stay off drugs, avoid surgery and live a fuller, more active life.

If you don’t have a “Family chiropractor”, I’ll be glad to help you find one in your area.  Send me an e-mail or find me on Facebook.  You’ll be glad you did.

Shingles and Chiropractic

Posted by Marietta chiropractor on October 23, 2007

So, can chiropractic cure shingles?  Of course not.  But, neither can Medicine.  There is no cure for shingles, a condition that causes extreme pain to those afflicted.

Shingles is a condition where the Chicken Pox (herpes zoster) virus settles into a person’s nerve root and causes no problems until activated, usually by stress.  Once activated, the entire nerve is affected causing extreme discomfort and pain.  Unfortunately, there’s little that can be done to alleviate the problem other than try to lessen the symptoms.

However, many sufferers of shingles have found that finding ways of reducing and dealing with stress keeps the virus from becoming active.  One of those ways is getting adjusted by their chiropractor on a regular basis.  Chiropractic adjustments help balance stress on the nervous system.  Reducing that stress helps prevent shingles outbreaks and helps your body recover quicker when there is an outbreak.

If you suffer from shingles, I encourage you to find a wellness chiropractor whose focus is on the upper cervical spine.
