Happy 4th of July – America is an idea
America is unique in human history, a “great experiment” as Abraham Lincoln called our nation. America is unlike other countries that were founded on geography or race.
To be an American is to accept the unique ideas or principles on which America was founded. Philosopher Dennis Prager calls them “The American Trinity” and describes them as:
Liberty – personal freedom, a free economy, a small government, and the pursuit of happiness.
In God We Trust – America’s founders were all deeply religious and in agreement that the universal values that America embodies were derived from Biblical God-based principles and that America would lose its way and ultimately fail if it became godless.
E Pluribus Unum – out of many, one. No matter what our backgrounds and beliefs we come together as Americans. (1)
America was founded on these ideals; it has not been a perfect land (no land is) but has become a “light unto the nations” as it strives to achieve them. Many people gave their lives to defend and protect these ideals. We can take pride that America fought for liberty, stood strong and saved the world from the horrible isms of the last decades –
Nazism, Fascism and Communism.
The values that made America the unique land of freedom and opportunity it has become, and as a result the land of great wealth, continue to make it a magnet to millions of people all over the world searching for a better life. These values need to be taught to our children and their children so they are never forgotten.
America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves. – Abraham Lincoln
Singing, Dancing, Boxing and Chiropractic
Are you a singer?
What do the Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Kiss, Neil Diamond, The Who, Madonna, Santana, Guns and Roses and loads of other singers and rock and rollers have in common? The receive chiropractic care (often backstage before the performance). (2)
How about coming in and serenading the office while you receive care?
Are you a dancer?
Dancers love chiropractic. Come in and have better balance, control and coordination. Even top companies use chiropractors. (3) How about coming in and dancing for everyone in the office?
Are you a boxer?
Did you know that the world’s greatest boxers see chiropractors? (4) How about coming in to the office and punching somebody? Ooops, forget that. We got carried away. Maybe just sign autographs instead.
Are There Incurable Diseases?
When a person is told that they have an “incurable disease,” that is usually an incorrect phrase. The accurate phrase would be: “incurable by orthodox medicine.”
The problem is people often don’t know that there is much more they can do than drugs and surgery. There is almost always a more effective, less expensive and much, much safer alternative than the orthodox medical approach.
Even medical journals contain articles about “incurables” that recovered using natural means or even without any care. The list is long and can include day-to-day illness such as colds, flu and the “24-hour virus.” It can also include chronic and serious health issues such as allergies, asthma, ADD, autism, cancer, stroke … and more. The important thing is: don’t give up and don’t stop searching.
For example, here is an interview with a mother who was told by her MDs that her autistic son was so damaged he should be institutionalized. Today he is a 26-year-old aerospace engineer living a normal life. http://autism-and-treatment.com/beating-autism/what-marcia-thinks-about-autism/
Everyone has an inborn, natural, God-given healing ability that is more powerful than any drug.
The technical term to describe such amazing healings is: spontaneous remission. Such healings are far more common than most people realize:
Spontaneous regression of cancer is not a rare occurrence as thought to be; in an average month during 2002, medical journals published more than four articles on the subject…. Spontaneous regression occurs in most types of cancer. (5)
Spontaneous remission is just another way of saying that your body’s natural healing ability kicked in. The goal of all natural health care is for there to be more and more “spontaneous remissions” of all diseases and conditions.
For that reason, anyone who is suffering from any condition, no matter if it’s labeled “incurable,” needs chiropractic care to remove blockages to optimal functioning so their natural healing ability may address their body’s challenges. Chiropractic may make the difference.
The chiropractic approach is to unblock or unlock subluxations that interfere with your natural healing ability – for you and your children. This is essential for optimal functioning of your brain and body. Your immune system especially needs a healthy nervous system to optimize detoxification and healing.
Questions and Answers About Chiropractic
Question: Will I feel better immediately after chiropractic care?
Answer: While we want everyone to feel wonderful after chiropractic care, and most do, we must be prepared for retracing. What is that? It's the return or emergence of old pains or other symptoms as one heals. It might seem odd but the adage “sometimes you feel worse before you get better” is often true.
Chinese Restaurant Syndrome
It sounds like a bad joke, but Chinese Restaurant Syndrome (CRS) is a real condition suffered by people who are over-sensitive to MSG (monosodium glutamate), a substance that is often added to Chinese food to enhance its flavor. CRS symptoms are most commonly headaches shortly after having a meal. But actually, those with headaches are the lucky ones – their body knows they are eating a poison that causes brain overstimulation and even brain cell death and diabetes, obesity, heart disease and possibly cancer.
Yes, MSG is not good for you. People who don’t have an acute reaction and notice nothing are the ones who are in trouble. The MSG may be accumulating over time in their brains as they happily continue to consume MSG and not know anything – perhaps for years. It’s even worse if you drink diet soda with aspartame (NutraSweet™) because then the glutamate (the chemical that causes brain damage) levels increase much more.
By the way, MSG is found in commercial soups, frozen dinners and junk foods such as potato chips. Sadly, MSG is often called by other names so you wouldn’t know it was in the food so avoid foods that use the words hydrolyzed protein, soy protein, natural flavoring, spices, enzymes, stock and broth in their ingredients. (6) To be extra sure contact the manufacturer or preparer.
Did You Know?
- The study of the brain and nervous system is called neurology or neuroscience.
- Your spinal cord is about 20 inches long and weighs about 35 grams or 1¼ ounces.
- The human brain weighs on average three pounds, or 1.5 kg and is about the size of a cantaloupe.
- An adult’s brain requires around 20% of the body's oxygen and 20% of the blood from the heart.
- The biggest part of the brain is the cerebrum, the thinking part. It makes up 85% of the brain's weight.
- Myelinated or insulated nerves send messages at a speed of 10 to 100 meters per second. Uninsulated nerves only transmit at about 1 meter per second.
Chiropractic clinical case histories have been a regular feature of our patient newsletter since its inception. There seems to be no limit to the health problems that respond to chiropractic care. How many people suffering, on drugs, facing a life of limitation could be helped by chiropractic care?
Probably most of them.
Post neck fusion adjustment. This is the case report of a 43-year-old woman suffering from neck and mid-back pain and stiffness, migraines, shoulder pain, low energy and decreased performance of activities of daily living. She had undergone a surgical fusion of her neck (cervical spine) to help her symptoms, but after the surgery her symptoms remained.
The woman received chiropractic care 36 times over 3 months and follow up X-rays showed improvement in neck curve and posture. Her head was sitting atop her spine in a more balanced position.
She reported improvements in neck and mid-back pain/stiffness, shoulder pain, energy levels, performance of activities of daily living, and frequency, duration, and severity of migraine episodes. (7)
Scoliosis reduction in a 7-year-old boy after chiropractic care. A 7-year-old boy was brought in by his parents because of a recent diagnosis of scoliosis. His mother was worried about the diagnosis especially since the orthopedic surgeon told her that he should wear a brace because the curve was worsening: the angle of his scoliosis (Cobb angle) was measured at 25°. The mother decided to seek an alternative approach. The child had no pain or other complaints.
Chiropractic examination revealed subluxations in the cervical and thoracic spine as well as in the sacrum. The child was seen three times a week for a total of 16 visits.
After the adjustments, he was X-rayed again. His scoliosis (Cobb angle) decreased over 50%, from 25° to 11°. In addition, his high left shoulder was level and the muscle tone in his mid-back was more relaxed (less hypertonicity). The child continues to receive weekly chiropractic visits and future improvements are expected. (8)
Parkinson’s and chiropractic care. Parkinson’s is the second most common
neurodegenerative disease after Alzheimer’s. Neurodegenerative diseases are increasingly a source of suffering and death. Can chiropractic help?
This is the case of a 76-year-old man with Parkinson’s disease. He came to the office with right-sided tremors, memory loss, balance issues, constant leg pain, occasional poor circulation, and decreased muscular strength. He needed to use a walker. He had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease by his neurologist in 2010 and was taking 10 doses of leva-dopa a day.
A chiropractic analysis revealed the patient to have many postural distortions in addition to an upper cervical (C-1) subluxation that was affecting his brain stem.
After the first adjustment, the patient no longer needed a walker and his tremors decreased.
He continues care and his tremors and other Parkinson’s symptoms continue to lessen. His neurologist decreased his medication by 50%. He remains under care. (9)
