Healing

We really do live in a fast paced world. We want quick results and instant gratification whether it is losing weight or expanding the size of your biceps.

What I do know is that all bodily processes take time, and take the RIGHT amount of time as is necessary because the innate wisdom of living organisms knows what is needed, when it is needed and how long it is needed for.

With regard to healing, this is also a process that takes time. What can not be debated is that we have an amazing ability to heal ourselves, whether it be from a cut, fracture, surgery, divorce, or death of a loved one.

One of the main challenges that I face on a daily basis is communicating with people that healing takes time, and that there is no “quick fix” with true healing. Sure we can overcome pain with drugs, but to find the cause, and create the environment for true healing (not just pain relief) takes time.

Healing begins with a mindset, a determination to get better, to have more, and a willingness to see it through. It takes someone with some guts and willingness to tolerate some pain and discomfort in the pursuit of true healing and health.

All living beings possess the ability to heal. It doesn’t matter if they have been told they have terminal cancer, or are riddled with arthritis. Healing comes in different forms. A great deal of emotional healing often occurs when people have been informed that they have a terminal condition. Whilst they may still decline physically, the potential for healing emotionally, has massive impact both for themselves and potentially the other people that are involved in the healing process.

Wellfare For All

There was a farmer who grew excellent quality wheat and every year he won an award for best in his county.

One year a reporter interviewed the farmer and learned that each spring the farmer would share his seeds with his competing neighbor farmers so they can plant the seeds in their fields too. When the reporter asked him why? The farmer explained:

“The wind picks up pollen from the neighboring fields if my neighbors grow inferior wheat the cross pollination overtime will degrade the quality of all wheat, including mine. If I am to grow good wheat I must help my neighbors grow good wheat…” The reporter thought how this also applied to people’s lives in the most fundamental way…

Those who want to live meaningfully and well must help enrich the lives of others, for the value of life is measured by the lives it touches. And those who chose to be happy must help others find happiness, for the welfare of each is bound up in the welfare of ALL.

 

 

Healthy Tips For The Holidays

Happiness is a strong indicator of overall well-being. The holiday season is a time for joy, love, and togetherness. This year, traditions will be hard to keep up and we may not be able to be around our loved ones.  Research continues to demonstrate that a positive, happy mindset contributes to a healthy lifestyle — not just the other way around. Positivity actually helps the body decrease levels of inflammation.

 

Below are practical tips to help you stay mentally tough throughout the holiday season.

 

Laugh often.

Did you know that laughter actually has physiological benefits? A study from the University of Maryland School of Medicine showed that laughing causes blood vessels to naturally dilate, which improves blood flow. This allows your veins and arteries to function at full capacity. Gather with loved ones or watch a funny holiday movie to reap the healthy benefits of laughter.

 

Keep sweating.

If you have an exercise routine, stick to it. If you don’t, then start one today. Exercising causes the brain to release endorphins that make you feel better. High-intensity, short-duration surge training can elicit this feel-good effect without taking a chunk of time away from your day. Surge training also offers the benefit of the after burn effect, in which the body continues to burn calories for up to 48 hours after exercise is completed. These two effects combine to help you stay positive during the holidays, while also fighting seasonal weight gain.

 

Get adjusted.

If one of your vertebrae is pinching or otherwise damaging your spinal cord — especially in your neck — you can experience symptoms of illness or constant aching. Prolonged aches, pains, and sickness can cause significant mental stress and wear you down physically. Specific spinal correction can help repair this damage and restore the natural curvature of your spine. Once your spinal health is restored, your body and mind can resume operating to their fullest potential.

 

 

A DIFFERENT APPROACH TO YOUR HEALTH CONCERNS

Even though we were designed to live between 80-120 years of age, most people don’t make it past 60! At 60 years of age, people are riddled with symptoms and disease.  They are taking tons of medications.  Ninety percent of the medications produced in the world are consumed in the U.S.  That’s crazy! For a country that uses all this medication, has the “best” doctors, and the most advanced technology, we are a very sick nation.  We have been taught all wrong.  Health does not come from the outside; health comes from the inside.  We ALL have the ability to heal from within.  We can heal from anything whether it is a diabetes, balance issues such as dizziness, pain in joints, or hormonal imbalances.  We just need to find out why our bodies are breaking down and begin to remove that interference because we have an inherent ability to heal.  Our bodies came fully equipped.  Everything we need to run our bodies are inside.  And once we begin to remove the interference, our bodies can return to where they need to be.  We can return to health. 

But what runs our bodies?  The most important system in our body, the master system, is the nervous system.  This is comprised of the brain and nervous system which includes the spinal cord and nerves that go to every cell, tissue, and organ in your body.  The nerves come out between the bones of the spine and are the wiring of your body.  Each nerve goes to a different “room” or organ of your “house” or body.  It’s the messages that travel through the nerves that runs your body.  We call those messages – power or life.  The scientific term for this power is innate intelligence meaning inborn wisdom.  Your body has within it the inborn wisdom to know what to do and how to do make new cells.  So the brain communicates with the body through these messages, IF the spine is in alignment.  If the spine moves out of alignment, there is pressure on the nerve.  Wherever that nerve is going that body part will not be working at 100%.  It would start breaking down and over time lead to dis-ease of that body part.  However, by the time this shows up in blood work often times it is too late.  What’s really upsetting is that we go to the doctor and get a diagnosis but we are never told what’s causing the health problem. 

The three things that cause the spine to misalign is – trauma, toxins, and thought.  Physical trauma is the one that comes to mind first.  Major trauma such as a car accident or a slip and fall would bang your spine out of position but your spine can also creep out of position from repetitive stress such as the way we sleep, lift, bend, and sit.  Even emotional stresses like feeling depressed or angry would cause your muscles to get short and tight pulling the bones out of alignment.  And of course, things we eat or are exposed to in the air are chemical stressors causing misalignment. 

Birth is the first time that our bodies can be exposed to misalignment.  Professor Abraham Towbin, M.D., reported on the results of a study he conducted at Harvard Medical School’s department of neuropathology on spinal cord and brainstem injuries in newborn infants.  He revealed spinal cord and brainstem injuries occurring in 90% of births.  The way the baby’s neck gets stretched during birth effects the first bone in the neck.  Right away there is an interference of messages in that baby’s body which will effect development.  If there is an interference, how can the body parts function at optimum?  

While each bone of the spine effects a different nerve and body part, the first bone in the neck is the most important because it effects the brain stem.  The brain stem effects 90% of the function in the body.  It effects our blood pressure, hormones, metabolism, and the immune system.  Pressure on the brain stem can cause chaos in the body.  All babies should be checked at birth not just for their coloring, pulse, and heart beats. 

Then as children learn to walk, they fall 25x/day.  If you have had children, you know what I am talking about.  Then there are playground injuries, wrestling with siblings, and athletic injuries.  There are so many things that can cause the spine to shift out of position.  That’s why the spine is so important and needs to be checked. 

We check every patient’s first bone with advanced thermal technology and bio structural digital X-rays.  Have you been checked?  Do you know if you have blockage on C1?  Do you know what your C1 angle is or the angle of your cervical curve?  Why not find out?  Your body could be breaking down and you are not aware because it hasn’t manifested yet. 

The intelligence running your body doesn’t just control things physically.  It controls things emotionally and chemically too.  For you to have proper emotions, proper focus, concentration, and memory, your body needs to make the right brain chemicals.  The intelligence in your brain sends signals down the spinal cord over the nerves so if the signals are flowing properly life is getting through and your body makes the right chemicals.  If we block the way the intelligence flows, the chemicals get off balance.  When someone is diagnosed with Anxiety or Depression that is called a chemical imbalance but no one ever finds out the cause.  The answer is always medication to try to substitute the chemical from the outside and try to balance things.  However, this creates a dependency and major side effects.

What makes us unique?  We get to the root cause of health concerns.  We approach the correction by a 3 prong method.  Physically we get pressure off the nerves using many techniques including instruments and we retrain the muscles and ligaments to return the body’s natural curves.  Chemically we address lifestyle restrictions such as what you are eating or not, what supplements you are taking or not, and detoxification programs.  Emotionally we work on a positive mind-body connection through various modes of meditation, breathing, and tapping to name a few. 

Where is your health today?  Where do you want it to be?  Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years?  Live your life to its fullest potential doing anything and everything you want to do.  It IS possible.  You are supposed to be like a candle lit brightly and flicker twice before you go.  You are not meant to spend time being sick a little in your 40’s, 50’s, and 60’s and so on.  Change your life today by calling for a complementary consultation and examination 718-224-6124.
