One Being

Do you take the time to just be?  We are at a crossroads where technology is still going in the direction it needs to, which is up, and our being, finally acknowledging that our brains can not keep up.  There are more mental disorders these days than years of past such as anxiety, depression, bipolar, ADHD, PTSD, etc...  Research has been coming out and we are discovering that our connectiveness, and technology in general are major causes.
I am not against technology, however we need to use it to our advantage and not let it use us and that is a topic for another post. 
There are a few simple things we can do now to combat the fatigue from technology.  One is to start a simple practice of just being.  Find a quiet spot and just sit, close your eyes and focus on your breath.  It can be a minute or longer, which ever you make time for.
Eating, next time you eat, just eat.  Be grateful and mindful of just eating, and you will enjoy it more.  And finally, disconnect from all screens at least one hour before bed.
So you may ask what does this have to do with Chiropractic?  Just an analogy.  Subluxations are like technology and they will cause as much havoc to your brain.
Getting your subluxations corrected will allow you to just be.

Getting out there

I know most of my posts here are Chiropractic related however I would like to digress a bit and talk about getting out there.  What I mean about getting out there is this; sharing ideas, showing your work, talking to strangers, and helping others.
We all have great ideas, and many of those ideas can be expanded upon if we share them with others.  With the advent of the digital platform we are able to get our work out there whenever, and to whomever at any given time, and most is free.
Take Chiropractic for instance, I am always sharing ideas with my colleagues and also with my practice members.  I am always excited when someone in the office strikes an interesting conversation.  This usually leads to more creativity and ideas.
Be humble and listen to those who do and don't know as much as you.
Get out there and share your work.

Epigenetics and Chiropractic

The study of Epigenetics is fairly new on the Scientific scene.  It has caught my interest and hopefully it will catch yours.  Epigenetics is the study of changes in the organism (us) caused by a modification of gene expression rather than altering the genetic code.  In short our genes can change from the internal and external stimuli we encounter or create.  Imagine that, we can change the expression of that cancer, heart disease, diabetes, etc. gene from ever affecting our body from changes in our environment, lifestyle and thoughts.
Our social, emotional, cultural and economic environment impact the influence of the expression of our genes.  Thoughts and emotions account for up to 80% of influence on the brain and body as well as exercise, sunlight and everything we choose to put into or onto our body.
So how does this tie into Chiropractic?
Simply put, the brain and body are in constant communication via the nerve system (brain and spinal cord).  There are over 30 trillion cells in the body all wanting to work in total harmony through proper communication and this is achieved from a clear signalling process.
This process involves the tiny nerves that exit the bones of the back which become misaligned on a daily basis also from internal and external stimuli and sometimes get stuck (vertebral subluxation) thus causing major interference and wreaking havoc in our bodies!
I'm not sure about you but I want that system to be fully functioning so all my good thoughts, assimilation from the wholesome foods I eat, and the new construction of muscle, bone, nerve and brain cells are all being optimized.
So to be sure no spinal misalignments are present you need to have your spine checked at least once a week.  I personally get my spine checked 2-3 times per week.  This ensures that my nerve system is being fully optimized to do its job.
You are not only what you eat, but you are what you think!
Think good thoughts, live in harmony with nature and express gratitude everyday and your life will be enhanced beyond anything you imagined.

Stopping something good?!

I really do not like starting an entry with a negative connotation, but for this I must.  It behoves me why someone would stop doing something that is good for them.  I mean we all know water is essential an a vital element for survival, yet most seem to ignore it and choose something like soda, tea, milk, etc...  We know that exercise is good for us yet most don't do it?  We know whole foods are far superior than processed but yet choose the latter.  Why seems to be the big question, but to me it is the WHY not that is even a bigger question.  To answer that question we need psychoanalysis of human nature which is far beyond the scope of this post.  And I digress- Science proves that a nerve system free from interference is a better functioning nerve system, so why would you not get your spine checked and adjusted if necessary?  And if you know it is good for you why on earth would you stop?!
Here in my office I do all I can to remove obstacles that would prevent you from coming in weekly.  No appointments necessary, very affordable fees, and the best quality Chiropractic that I can provide.
So, WHY not?

I will see you all this week.
Thank you!

Why Not?

People go to Chiropractors for many reasons, back ache, neck ache, fatigue, insomnia, ear aches, etc...  Some of these ailments go away from adjusting the Subluxated vertebra, but some don't.  Does that mean that Chiropractic didn't work?  Of course not, Chiropractic works every time you correct a Subluxation.  It works because the correction of a Subluxation removes nerve interference which in turn allows the body to function better.
So why not go and get your spine checked whether you have an ailment or not?  Your body is always better off with a good nerve supply thus functioning better!

Children and Chiropractic

I am often asked while I am checking a child "why do kids need to get adjusted?"  Children, like adults are subjected to everyday stress, physical, chemical and emotional.  These stresses compound in the body and causes spinal mis alignments called Vertebral Subluxations (VS).  It does not matter how old you are or what kind of shape you are in, everyone with a spine is subjected to VS.  
So where does back pain fall into this?  Well, it really doesn't.  You see whether you have back pain or not, you still need to have your spine checked weekly for VS.  VS may or may not cause back pain, however they always cause interference between brain and body therefore decreasing the bodies vitality! 
So lets give children the chance to reach their fullest potential by having them checked once a week for VS.

 Thanks,Dr. Gene
