What are your resolutions?


This is the time of the year many of us set and forget resolutions we made to improve ourselves.

More exercise? Meditation/, lose weight?


A fascinating way to get rid of a bad habit is to not try to change it: just observe it.

You might find this amazing but just observing a bad habit without judgement, can be very healing. They key is not judging yourself! Accept yourself and love yourself and you’ll tap into healing potential.


Be good to yourself. You are human and have weaknesses and strengths. Accept yourself. You were put on this earth for a reason even if you don’t know why,


Is it really possible to change a habit? According to a study published in the European Journal of Social Psychology, it takes 18 to 254 days for a person to form a new habit. So be patient with yourself. (1)


Accept yourself as you are and you’ll release lots of energy and have more and more healing.  The great thing is that you can start right now! A little self-acceptance and compassion goes a long, long way.


America’s great blessing


America was blessed with the most amazing combination of people with wisdom, courage, strength and faith and they all came together to confront and defeat the most powerful empire in the world Some of them were quite young.


Chiropractic and the “Spanish flu”


Since chiropractic’s founding in 1895 it has become more popular with every passing year. However not many people know that chiropractic “exploded” in popularity due to its success during the 1919-1920 “Spanish flu.”


Millions of people did die during that “pandemic” under medical care. The medical profession reported as much as 30%-40% mortality using drug therapy, (which consisted of massive amounts of aspirin, lots of cough suppressants and other chemicals to prevent the body from generating symptoms that the body needed to restore balance.


The chiropractic profession reported a .25% (or less) death rate. That means less than one quarter of 1% of people.  Read more about this at Koren T. Killer Flu or Killer Aspirin? Oct 1, 2019. https://korenwellness.com/blog/1918-flu-killer-flu-killer-aspirin/


Chiropractic adjustments that permit your body to function more efficiently and chiropractors respect the body. Unlike the medical profession chiropractors gave no symptom suppressing drugs. Drugs are like subluxations; they prevent your body from functioning properly.



Now you know why chiropractic has become the most popular drug-free healing profession in the world today: it works!  It’s safe! It’s gentle! It’s drug-free!

Try it, you’ll like it!  Call us for an appointment and don’t forget to bring in everyone, from the babies to the great-grandparents.

Chiropractic & Exercise: Perfect for Fibromyalgia

Regular chiropractic visits can actually help fibromyalgia patients adhere to long-term physical-therapy programs, thereby ensuring that patients receive the full benefits of exercise.

In a 2009 study (2), 55 women with fibromyalgia ages 21-59 years old were divided into two groups: some completed resistance training and the others received chiropractic adjustments in addition to doing resistance training.  Both groups improved significantly with increased upper and lower body strength, decreased pain and tender points, and an improved ability to perform everyday tasks. But the patients who received chiropractic care were more likely to follow the exercise program consistently. They also had more significant improvements in functionality, balance, flexibility, and endurance.

This study confirmed the power of exercise and resistance training to ease the pain of fibromyalgia. At the same time, it demonstrates that combining chiropractic adjustments and physical therapy may enhance the benefits of both treatments.


Questions and Answers


Q. Do babies benefit from chiropractic care?


A. Absolutely – all children (including babies) benefit from a chiropractic check-up, and, if needed, adjustment/correction. What can cause a child’s spine to have subluxations? Let us count the ways: first there is the stress of being in the womb. If the mother’s pelvis is not properly balanced the baby may not be able to turn and a breech presentation may occur. That’s why pregnant women find that getting chiropractic care can help turn the baby so it is in the best possible position for a healthy delivery.


Then there’s the trauma of birth. Some deliveries are not as natural as they can be. Sometimes forceps are used or too much stress is placed on the baby’s spine. Chiropractic can should be employed immediately after birth.


They of course there’s the stress of learning to walk, falls, accidents and life’s bumps – childhood can be a very traumatic time. For these and many other reasons, all children need chiropractic care. Why wait until adulthood to correct their spinal subluxations?


… Just the Essentials


Essential Oils with Scientifically Proven Health Benefits


The essential oils market was valued at more than $7 billion globally in 2017, and it is predicted to reach the same level in the United States by 2024. Essential oils are commonly used for aromatherapy, but they may also be used topically (on the skin) for various uses. While the prominence of essential oils may appear to be a passing fad, scientific proof of their health benefits exists.


Here are just 2 of the many essential oils:


Lavender essential oil

As is the case with many essential oils, there are various varieties of lavender essential oil. The most common variety is Lavandula angustifolia. According to studies, lavender essential oil possesses antibacterial properties. Lavender oil was shown to destroy a prevalent bacteria on human skin in just five minutes in one research. Lavender essential oil has also been demonstrated to kill yeast and viral pathogens that cause skin diseases. Lavender aromatherapy has been proven to help with sleeplessness and contains antioxidant and anti-inflammatory qualities, according to a study (3).


Frankincense essential oil

For thousands of years, Frankincense oil has been utilized in aromatherapy. It is used as incense in religious rituals, and research (4) has shown that it has natural antibacterial characteristics and may be used as an air cleaner. Boswellic acid, one of the primary components of frankincense essential oil, has been discovered to have anti-tumor activities in studies. Researchers discovered that frankincense oil inhibited bladder cancer cell development while causing no damage to normal bladder cells in one investigation.


Traditional Eating


The number one superfood: Cod liver oil.


Once a standard supplement in traditional European societies, cod liver oil provides fat-soluble vitamins A and D, which Dr. Price found present in the diet of “primitives” in amounts ten times higher than the typical American diet of his day. Cod liver oil supplements are a must for women and their male partners, to be taken for several months before conception, and for women during pregnancy. Growing children will also benefit greatly from a small daily dose.

Did you know?


At local taverns, pubs, and bars, people drank from pint and quart-sized containers. A bar maid’s job was to keep an eye on the customers and keep the drinks coming.  She had to pay close attention and remember who was drinking in ‘pints’ and who was drinking in ‘quarts,’ hence the phrase ‘minding your ‘P’s and Q’s’


Researching Chiropractic


Chiropractic clinical case histories have been a regular feature of our patient newsletter since its inception. There seem 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.


Balance, coordination, and neurological problems in a 65-year-old man. A 65-year-old retired man was suffering from balance and coordination problems. He was given neurological tests that confirmed nervous system stress.


He sought out chiropractic care where he received a spinal analysis. It revealed the presence of vertebral subluxations. The patient received chiropractic adjustments to release/reduce his subluxations and began to show immediate improvements in balance, coordination, and ability to complete neurological tests. He had been unable to complete the tests during the initial exam. (5)


Woman with trigeminal neuralgia. A 30-year-old woman was suffering from trigeminal neuralgia (also known as tic-douloureux). Trigeminal Neuralgia is an extremely painful condition in which the facial nerve is highly inflamed. It has been called the “suicide disease” because the extreme pain has led some sufferers to take their own lives!

The patient visited a chiropractor that reduced her vertebral (atlas or C-1) subluxation. The patient reported that by her tenth visit she was no longer suffering from TN. (6)


Lower back pain and degenerative joint disease. A 59-year-old man diagnosed with degenerative joint disease and suffering from chronic lower back pain visited a chiropractor. The Doctor of Chiropractic used various spinal adjustment techniques to correct his subluxations. The patient showed improvement in all his subjective and objective findings within six visits, better immune function, increased energy as well as an increase in his disc height at multiple spinal levels. (7)
