HAPPY GIVING THANKS.

Posted by Marietta chiropractor on November 23, 2015

thanksgivingAs I sit here contemplating this particular Thanksgiving week with all the craziness in the world AND in America, I realize there is much for ME to give thanks.

I was born a free man in the United States of America, a nation maligned by many who take so much for granted. For all that America has been blamed, it still has done more to improve the life of hundreds of millions of people around the World. It is STILL the place where the World seeks refuge and opportunity.
I was born a Southerner. As such, I was taught manners, respect for women, strength of character, duty, honor, to protect the weak and to love my country.

I am thankful for the United States military. Military service gave a young man discipline and direction when it was much needed. It also allowed me to earn a college education and the chance to be more than what my past had prepared me.

I have been blessed to have finally realized my calling and purpose of serving God by serving my fellow man as a chiropractor focused on freeing people’s locked potential for expressing life, health, happiness and prosperity. I get to help babies, kids, families and individuals in all walks of life. It’s also a great avenue for sharing the message of a bigger Design for people’s life and potential. I’m a crazy chiropractor and that is awesome!

I have two great kids who are smart, productive and who love their parents. They understand their potential and want to make the World a better place in their own ways.

Finally, I’m grateful to have been pulled from a morass of despair and hopelessness by a Loving God who set me free to be me. I have found in the darkest of times that His Grace is sufficient and gives me a peace in the midst of any storm.

Oh yeah. I am grateful for the many friends I have who tolerate my sometimes weird sense of humor, my Conservative political philosophy.

HAPPY GIVING THANKS!

Downed Power Line or Subluxation?

Posted by Marietta chiropractor on June 1, 2015

downed-power-lineWhat happens when a storm or a wayward automobile knocks down a power pole? Well, lots of things.

You can cut off power to many homes in the area causing all sorts of calamities from spoiled food to lost computer data to any number of problems. It can also cause electrocutions and fires at the site of the fallen power pole.

Vertebral subluxation (misalignment of spinal bones putting pressure on nerves/nervous system) can do the same thing in the body. It can cause pain and loss of function at the specific site of the misalignment OR problems throughout the whole nervous system adversely affecting the overall vitality of your body and life.

And just like you look to the power company to put up a new power pole and restore power to the area, your chiropractor essentially does the same thing with your spine and nervous system.

So, if things don’t seem to be working quite right in your body, health or life, maybe you should pay a visit to a good Principled chiropractor to help you determine if you are subluxated and what it will take to get your power turned back on.

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.

Get Adjusted!

Posted by Marietta chiropractor on June 11, 2014

I have a much better shot at improving your life by getting you into my (or another Principled Chiropractor’s) office and convincing you to get adjusted than by ranting about forced vaccination or Monsanto or the failure of Medicine.

Chiropractic is Restoration

Posted by Marietta chiropractor on March 8, 2014

It can be difficult explaining to folks just what Chiropractic is REALLY about.  I know.  Some (most) folks think my profession is about fixing back pain, neck pain and headaches.  And, that IS a pretty easy thing in many cases for the chiropractor.  However, just because that’s what most chiropractors do, it doesn’t mean that’s what Chiropractic is or can do. Let me explain.

Chiropractic is restoration.

I love watching TV shows about restoring old cars.  You know, the one where they go out and find a 40-50 year old muscle car and bring it back to life.  Well, there’s a process there.  Once the car is in the shop, the car must be stripped down to its bare essentials, old parts replaced, weak spots must be strengthened and the car repainted.  Eventually, the car looks brand new and in many cases runs like brand new.  But if done right, the car maintains its original character.  A 50 year old muscle car might not be able to keep up with some of today’s smaller, lighter (even faster) imports.  But, who cares.

Your body is very much the same way.

Life and time can take a toll on your body.  And if you’ve had a chiropractic problem (vertebral subluxation affecting your nerve supply) for any length of time, you can feel like your body is rusting (or has rusted) away.  When the chiropractic problem has been corrected, the body begins to more effectively do its job of removing damaged and under-performing parts and tissues.  It’s always doing that, anyway.  It just does it better without nerve interference.

Eventually, damaged tissue is replaced with normal tissue.  Normal function is restored and the quality of your life is restored.  AND just like with restoring the old car, the process takes time and patience.  The job simply has to be done in a programmed manner.  Otherwise, rushing has its own risks and consequences.

So, if your body (and/or life) is not what you think it could be, maybe it’s time to find what is called a Principled chiropractor.  They’re the ones that ONLY adjust the spine with the specific goal of removing nerve interference (vertebral subluxation) so your body can return to normal function.  If you need help finding one in your area, let me know.

I’d love for you to move toward restoration as soon as possible.

Back Pain or Miracles?

Posted by Marietta chiropractor on December 13, 2013

Actually, I’m quite bored with back pain.  I know.  I know.  That’s what chiropractors do…fix back pain.  Sadly, it IS what most chiropractors do.  Cricks, backaches and strains, in fact.

I say “sadly” because that’s what probably 90% of all chiropractors do, deal with backaches.  In the beginning, chiropractic was known for all sorts of miracles that happened in the chiropractor’s office.  The first “patient” was a janitor whose hearing was restored when a bone in his spine was re-aligned.  In the decades since that fateful day in 1895, millions have sought healing and wholeness by getting “adjusted” after all of Medicine had failed them.

You know, only about 10% of the nerves in your body are responsible for pain.  Yet probably 90% of the money spent on chiropractic is on treating pain.  What happens to the OTHER 90% of the nervous system?  THAT part is what is responsible for our HEALTH and QUALITY OF LIFE!

If you REALLY want a better life, you should find yourself a good chiropractor who has plans, fees and systems built on lifetime care for you and your entire family.  I’d even prefer that you find a chiropractor that specializes in specific adjustments of the top bone or two in your neck.  When you start functioning closer to the way God designed you, you’ll start seeing miracles both in your health AND your entire life experience.

Try it, especially if you need a miracle.

I’m a chiropractor today because…

Posted by Marietta chiropractor on June 21, 2013

BowandarrowI’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.

God’s Plan and Chiropractic

Posted by Marietta chiropractor on June 10, 2013

Funny thing about “God’s Plan”.  I hear that term used in so many scenarios, I used to wonder just what “God’s Plan” for each one of us really is.  Some people justify their misery by saying it must be part of “God’s Plan”.  Some credit their success to “God’s Plan”.  It seems (sometimes) like the ending of Will Smith’s “Men in Black” movie where the gods are playing marbles with all the planets and their inhabitants.

I’m not buying it, though.  I have a whole different take on “God’s Plan”.  And, I’ll make the  connection to chiropractic in a minute.  Be patient.

I DO believe that all the Universe was Created and that part of that Creation included a Design with natural laws to hold everything in place and keep everything balanced over time.  And, that that organization is apparent in ALL living things.  This Organization is designed to help living things achieve their maximum life potential.  In other words, a tree will use all resources available to it (including light, air, water and nutrients) to grow as tall as it can and to produce as many other little trees as it can.  It’s the same with any animal of any species.  They eat, drink, sleep and mate in order to live and perpetuate life.

You and I are Designed the very same way, with a little quirk.  Being at the top of the food chain, makes it a little easier for us humans to move up Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs.  While we DO still have the natural drive to eat, breathe, sleep and procreate, we also were Given the power to reason.  Sometimes, I wonder if that power is a gift or a burden.  Some use that power to conceive, perceive and achieve at incredible levels while others use that power to enslave themselves and limit their own potential to achieve and enjoy life.  To me, it is incredible how the very SAME power propels some to unbelievable heights while enslaving others in fear and doubt.

Given all that, I personally believe God’s Plan for every person on this planet is to use ALL of Creation to achieve great things and to serve Mankind in tremendous ways.  In fact, I believe that the best way to glorify God is to make the fullest and best use of ALL of Creation, including yourself.

As a chiropractor, my main job is to help people understand the power they have to be healthy, happy and fulfilled.  The other part of my job is to locate and remove a physical source of interference in how that is manifested in their body, health and life.  When I do this, miracles happen in my office.  Sometimes the miracle is an unexpected healing… by established “knowledge”.  Sometimes, it is someone being able to sleep an entire night through for the first time in years.  Sometimes, it is the return of clear thinking and peace of mind.  Sometimes, it becomes the catalyst for someone turning their entire life around.

If indeed we were made in the “image and likeness” of the Creator of all things, then the “Plan” for you and me is greatness.  I believe that you really were endowed with seeds of greatness and that “God’s Plan” for you is great beyond your wildest dreams.  There are only two things you need to get there.  First, you must accept that your were Designed for greatness.  Second, you must remove the barriers to your ability to get there.  Okay, there is a third thing.  You must ACT on that understanding and put the Plan to work in your life.

I wish you the best in your journey.

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!”
