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.

The ONLY thing that ONLY a chiropractor can do.

Posted by Marietta chiropractor on February 28, 2013

Chiropractic is about FREEDOM and LIFE and FULFILLMENT. Every adjustment frees your nervous system a little more allowing you to experience life more fully and making a fulfilling life more possible.

I do the ONLY thing that ONLY a chiropractor can do. I KNOW where, when and how to adjust you so you can express more life. There’s nowhere else you can go to get that.

The Membership Practice: Fees For Life!

Posted by Marietta chiropractor on August 22, 2012

I get lots of angry feedback from many fellow chiropractors about my “low fees” and practice style.  You see, my fees range from $89 a month for an individual to $149 for an entire family for regular chiropractic care.  It seems they deem my fee and practice structure as less than “professional”, insisting that your experience at the chiropractic office should be virtually the same as that in your MD’s office.  One replied on a Facebook forum about a blog post titled The Membership Practice:  Walmart and Unlimited Chiropractic Care. asking if one would go to Walmart to consult with a heart surgeon.  Crazy.

Truth is you would NOT go to Walmart to consult with a heart surgeon.  Face it.  You’re probably not going to buy an expensive business suit or cocktail dress there either.  Nor would you seek out a heart surgeon there.  However, millions of people around the country (indeed, the World) shop at Walmart EVERY week for home essentials like non-perishables, etc.  Studies have shown that even wealthy Americans shop at Walmart every week for consumable household goods like detergent, toothpaste, soap, deodorant, etc.

Many of my detractors will ask “What is a chiropractic adjustment worth?  My reply is simple, maybe even a little simplistic.  “A good chiropractic adjustment that does what a chiropractic adjustment should do is PRICELESS!”  OK.  OK.  What SHOULD a good chiropractic adjustment do?  A good chiropractic adjustment helps improve communication between your brain and body enabling you to live a better life, make better decisions and simply be a better you EVERY day of your life!  So, how would I value that?  I’d say “If you include chiropractic into your lifestyle for the next 40 years (and get more out of your life) at my current rate of $89 a month, it would be valued at about $43,000!

And, I’d be glad to let you pay me the Net Present Value of $43,000 today for lifetime care if you’d like.  But, really.  Who’s going to do that?  Right.  Probably nobody.  And, I really don’t want you to pay me up front.  I’d rather you pay me a little bit every month so you can appreciate your investment in your health and your life.

You see, crazy chiropractors like me admit from Day One that you should be checked regularly from now on by your chiropractor.  We also admit that while a chiropractic problem CAN lead to a Medical problem, it doesn’t need to.  We know (and want YOU to know) that your body and life will work better without pressure on your nervous system cause by a slightly misaligned vertebra.  By making it affordable (even CHEAP) we help folks find a way to include regular chiropractic care as part of their health and life maintenance plan.  Hey.  Think about your car.  What’s cheaper, maintenance or repair?  My point, exactly.

So the next time someone tells you the chiropractor wants you to come for the rest of your life, tell them you understand why!  And, tell them you know where they can find one that will make that affordable and easy for them to do.

I know hundreds of chiropractors around the country that offer Chiropractic Membership Plans.  Let me know if you need one.  I’ll help you find them.  And remember, Life is good!

Clear Thinking and Chiropractic

Posted by Marietta chiropractor on September 26, 2011

ClearthinkingI 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 putting stress on a spinal nerve or the entire nervous system.    Because the nervous system is the first system developed in your body and the one that runs everything else, if you have stress on it, your body AND your life is simply not going to work as well as it could.  When that stress is reduced things work better.

Okay, I’ll get to my point.  If you have stress on your nervous system, your body chemistry might be just a little off, your perception of the world around you and your interpretation of things you see and hear might be slightly different than reality.   Have you ever noticed that when you’re stressed, you react differently than when you’re relaxed?  It’s the same concept.

When you’re stressed, you’re in “fight or flight” mode.  When you’re relaxed, you’re in fulfillment mode. When you get adjusted (especially at the top of the neck) your body relaxes and moves toward that fulfillment mode.  That’s when you think more clearly and can focus on things much bigger than your physical symptoms, like your life goals and reason for being.

When you’re finally able to think bigger thoughts, you begin to see the world as it is instead of merely how you are.  The cleaner your filter on the World becomes, the clearer your thinking becomes.  When that happens, another new world of possibilities opens to you.

If you’re not under chiropractic care or if you’re chiropractor is more focused on your symptoms than your life, let me know.  I’ll help you find one that will help you begin to open yourself to a whole new way of thinking and living.  Clear.
