Myths vs. Facts
When are you and your family well?
Myth: When we are feeling good.
Fact: The people who are feeling good often die of heart attacks, find out they have cancer, or wake up sick after feeling good all of their lives.
You and your family are only well when the normal amount of mental “life” impulses from the brain and spinal cord can reach the body through the nerves at 100%. 100% full flow equals 100% full God-given health potential.
“Life” is from God. The Life coming from the brain and spinal cord is the power that totally controls all functions and healing in the body. The power is on only when you place no interference in its natural path.
How do you and your family Get Sick?
Myth: Somebody around us is sick and bugs, bacteria, viruses, or pollen floats around and we catch them like a baseball. We get cancer or heart disease because of poor genetics, bad luck (God’s will, we were dealt a bad hand), or old age.
Fact: The cause of sickness is interference. The most common and likely way to interfere with the brain and spinal cord is abnormal position of the spine and subluxation (misalignment). This interference to the flow of “Life” impulses will cause the organs of the body to function and heal poorly. The power is off!
Stress and inadequate movement also cause interference. Bugs, pollen, bacteria, and even cancer are always present in your body. “Everyone has from 100 to 10,000 cancer cells floating in their body at all times. If the immune system is strong, they are destroyed before and damage is done. However, new cancer cells develop every day, so you must keep your immune system in top condition. If it weakens too much that’s when cancer can establish itself.”
Dr. Michael Williams, Professor of Medicine at Northwestern University Medical School
“Nerve fibers go into virtually every organ of the immune system. We found that if you took the nerves away from the spleen or lymph nodes (organs of the immune system), you virtually stopped immune responses in their tracks.”
Dr. Davide Feltoen, M.D., Ph. D. reported in his research at the University of Rochester
Contemporary scientists clearly highlight the role of the immune system in warding off cancer. Genetic factors may or may not play are role and are in fact under scrutiny as genetics may create a pre-disposition but can typically be overcome by not falling into the traps that trigger disease.
How do you and your family get well?
Myth: Through the use of drugs, vitamins, surgery, herbs, or some kind of doctor.
Fact: By eliminating interference to normal body function and healing. Chiropractors do not heal you, they remove interference to the flow of mental “Life” impulses by correcting your spine. They turn the power on!
Chiropractors do not prescribe drugs and do not tell people to get off of drugs. That’s the practice of medicine. Our role is to make people aware of the dangers of poor lifestyle decisions and to optimize health naturally. As you heal, work with your prescribing physicians to help you reduce or eliminate the drugs you’re on.
“The person who takes medicine must recover twice; once from the disease, and once from the medicine.”
William Usler, MD
How do you and your family stay well?
Fact: Every single day you and your family must consider the four ways to reach your God-given health potential. Approximately five out of six Americans will die from heart disease and cancer. Few will live long, quality, productive lives. What the average American does for their health has not been working. For you and your family to survive and thrive, you must consider all four ways every day.
THE OPTIMAL LIFESTYLE
Every single day you and your family must are bombarded with these5 Fundamentals to reach your optimal health potential. Without any of these Essentials, you are unable to live a long, healthy and fulfilled life that you are meant to live. Each of these Essentials work together to keep your cells in optimal shape and your body functioning at the highest level. If you only focus on one of these essentials, such as exercise, you are leaving out other core elements that keep your body healthy.
Get to know each of the following essentials and understand how they all work together and need to be practiced from the moment you wake up until the time you go to sleep each night.
- Nerve Supply
The spine and Central Nervous System must be in its normal position and alignment in order for the normal amount of “Life” impulses to flow to the body. A Chiropractic rehabilitative program is specifically designed for you to reduce or correct objective findings discovered upon examination. Your posture and how your vertebrae are aligned affect your central nervous system and how well it functions. Damage and misalignment of your spine is more common than many of us realize. In our office, it’s done with the intention of reducing or eliminating interference to your Central Nervous System. You then must retain your spinal health the rest of your lives. Keep you power on!
- Reduce Stress
Time and stress management, improving your relationships with others, and making sure that you get adequate amounts of sleep. Working on all of these area’s help to improve a negative attitude and help your overall peace and well-being from within yourself. The body only heals when it is at rest. By not getting enough rest and indulging in too much stress, you and your family interfere with healing and body function.
- Quality Nutrition
What you put into your body affects how you feel each and every day. Food is the fuel that your body needs to continue to power and heal itself on a daily basis. Diets that are high in carbohydrates, have pH or omega-3 imbalances or are nutrient deficient, have negative effects not only on your body, but can create a lot of symptoms such as depression, brain fog, stress and fatigue.
- Increased Oxygen & Lean Muscle
Exercise allows your body to take in higher levels of oxygen and creates lean muscle that keeps both your body and mind healthy. Studies have shown that exercise consistently match or exceed the benefits of antidepressants. This is your opportunity to decrease fat and increase lean muscle tissue. You and your family intake and absorb oxygen more efficiently when you are moving. Without some form of proper, regular exercise you interfere with normal oxygen supply.
- Minimize Toxins
Toxins and chemicals surround us in our everyday lives and are included in items such as medications, refined foods, household cleaners and the items we cook with! Each of these toxins affect our bodies in a negative way and inhibit us from functioning at optimal levels.
