What would you want your body to be able to do extremely well in order to achieve health?

 

Your brain is constantly sending specific information to each cell in your body. When the signal is clear, we call this EASE. In order to be a self-regulating, self-healing organism, this EASE must be maintained because it allows the brain to know what is happening and how it should respond. One of the most amazing aspects of your body is the ability to maintain a status of equilibrium and ease. In biology, the term for this is Homeostasis. Even more amazing is the fact that your body can maintain ease and homeostasis while exposed to negative Toxins, Thoughts and Trauma’s daily as long as this is within your body’s ability for adaptation.

 

What’s even more amazing is that a specific chiropractic adjustment on a specific vertebra can remove the stress that is compressing the neuro-activity of the body. By releasing the Subluxation, we restore the balance and EASE within your body so you can withstand daily stress’s. In other words, you can ADAPT to your environment without losing EASE or Homeostasis as long as your nervous system stays clear.

 

Chiropractic is awesome! Less stress, more ease and better adaptation. But what if we went a step further. Not only is your body communicating at 100% but the information that is sent is upgraded. It’s like going from regular TV to 4K. Same TV show, same information, just better and much clearer picture. Your body can now think more clearly.

 

If I had to design a body to be healthy, I would want it to self-heal, regenerate, fight infections and harmful pathogens, adapt to its environment, process information optimally. Do all that while keeping a state of ease and homeostasis. Your body is designed to be healthy, it just needs no interference.

 

What’s sad is most people still think chiropractic is about back pain. If only they knew what really goes on during an adjustment.

 

I love you and here for you 100%,

Recent research has shown that the earth and all living things resonate at a high frequency and tone. Healthy cells vibrate at high vibrations and tone while diseased/sick cells vibrate at low frequency and low tone. When cells vibrate at high frequency they exhibit strong health and are in tune with the innate intelligence that flows through all matter. Interruption to the flow of innate intelligence causes cells to vibrate at low frequencies which disconnects living matter from its source.  

 

The word SUB-LUX-ATION (Sub = Less than, Lux = Light/Frequency/Flow) is a condition that interferes and is a major disruptor to the innate flow of life. Subluxations alter the flow of all LIFE that runs over all the nerves in the body and results in low vibrational tones. The CAUSE of all disease is altered expression of normal high vibrational tone.

 

This is why it is so important to ensure you continue to engage in high vibrational activities, thoughts and foods. Exercise, positive thoughts/actions and good nutrition all vibrate at high frequency and are in tune with the natural law of the universe.  They are the fuel your body needs in order to express health. Since the presence of normal tone prevents subluxations from occurring, the chiropractic adjustment and healthy lifestyle habits are necessary to ensure you continue to express your full potential.

 

Chiropractic does not cure and it certainly does not heal. YOUR BODY DOES and has everything it needs to be healthy. Chiropractic is the assessment application of what allows man to thrive by the removal of interference to the normal vibrational tone of life. Life runs from the source to each cell; uninterrupted it exudes the ultimate expression of life. It ensures we resonate at high frequency so we can be in tune with universal intelligence which runs through us. Chiropractic allows for the expression of life from Above Down Inside Out.

 

It is my sole purpose to see you re-connected to your full health potential. Start thinking healthy spine = Healthy life and be the best you possible. The world needs you and your gifts.

 

"You are the light of the world--like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden.NLT Matthew 5:14

 

I love you and here for you 100%,

What is the quality of your life and health?  How do stresses in life affect your health? How is the health of others around you? Could it be better?

     If you want to have a higher quality of health, the new year may be the opportune time to reassess your life and make some very important and life changing decisions.

     Many people believe that the older they get, the less beneficial it becomes, to drop bad habits and start good ones.  This is simply not true.  It is never too late to adopt a healthy lifestyle.  Whether your body is 2 months old or 82 years old, it will always function at its maximum efficiency when you eat well, exercise regularly, and keep your nerve system free from interference caused by vertebral subluxations.

     Ageing causes the structures that hold the spine in proper alignment to undergo change.  The muscles that support and move the vertebrae of the spinal column begin to lose their tone. This can result in a greater tendency for spinal vertebrae to subluxate, or “slip out of line”, losing their normal mobility.   This process creates interference with the communication pathways through the nerve system which is so vital for good health. By adjusting the spine, we restore the body’s ability to govern itself optimally.

If you understand this next part you will understand everything there is to know about health and healing. Your body, when it's working the way it was designed can last until 120-150 years old. But the individual cells don’t last 120 years. If I brush my hand, I will brush off millions of dead cells and new ones grow from behind in order to replace them. Your body constantly replaces itself at the rate of 3 billion cells every 20 seconds! As you read this right now your heart cells are dying but don't worry about it because your body is making new cells to replace it out of the food you ate today. Heart cells live about 90 days and then they die, red blood cells live about 120 days and then die and replaced. After 14 months go by, all your organs have been replaced. It takes about 7 years to replace the entire body, bones and all. Every 7 years you have a brand new body. That means if you have been married for 21 years, you are on your 3rd spouse by now. (That was a joke!)

Your entire body replaces itself with new cells as old cells die off except for one system. Can you guess? Your brain and spinal cord. Those cells have to last you your entire life. The brain and spinal cord are the first cells to form, they are the master controls cells that regulate the entire body and the only cells that will last a life time.

Do you think it might be a good idea to take care of your brain and spinal cord?

That's the Chiropractic message. That’s all we want you to do. We say since every part of your body can be replaced and since your brain and spinal cord, if they are working properly, regulate the function of the entire body then you only really have to worry about one system. If the new cells in your body is getting clear information from your brain and spinal cord and form strong and healthy then disease passes from the picture. That's why patients under chiropractic care for more than 7 years are statistically the healthiest patients in our office. But if the new cells that are born are born just as sick as the old ones, then the disease goes on and on and you will never get well.

This is why Chiropractic is so important and why so many people don’t understand it. Everyone else is trying to help all the sick cells in the body. Chiropractic doesn’t want to cure your sick cells, we  just wants to make sure all the new cells that are being born are born healthy.

     As we move into another year of our lives, it is very important to take a bit of time to sit down and reassess where we are heading with our health and our goals of enjoying our health now and later in life.  We must realise that if we procrastinate with our health now, we may not be able to enjoy the rest of our lives the way we desire.

     The people who have been caught in a bad health scenario for a long time should realise that the vast majority of the health problems could improve greatly with a natural and holistic approach to health.  A lot of these people get caught up on a treadmill of drug taking.  They only mask symptoms temporarily and inevitably allowing their body to slowly be dragged in a downward spiral of health, creating the need for more drugs.

     We are in control of our own destiny.  It is never too late for NEW BEGINNINGS. Tell others, let them read this or even better, give them the gift of health. Who wouldn’t want a $400 gift card? Especially if they have never had a proper spinal check up. Just imagine if you were responsible for improving someone’s life, getting them off drugs and living the life they were designed to live, simply because you gave them the opportunity with a free health gift card.

I want to share with you a verse I read daily. It keeps me motivated and focused on my WHY.

“God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.” Hebrews 6:10 (NIV)

Together, we can change our community by giving hope and healing to thousands.

 

God Bless and Merry Christmas,

I can't thank you enough! Last month was a huge month and I want to thank everyone who participated in our March contest. Your testimonials were very touching to read and I love the feedback. Remember, each and every Progressive Exam you have is a great opportunity for you to express what you are feeling and how you are progressing. Please also take this time let us know on the bottom of the form if there are any areas you believe we can improve. Health is a journey and we are in this together. 

We are making some changes to help the flow of the office as we continue to grow. The sign in computer now faces the sign in desk. This is typically where Dr. Denise will be to greet you but also help you with your visit, guide you if you have a progressive exam or share any information with you for that visit. Lisa will be in her typical area but will better be able to help you with your schedule, finances and any other future appointments.

Each week, I will have a special Dr. Matt's Message for that week. I will use this time to discuss any important events but more importantly, share with you some life changing information about the advanced chiropractic care you are receiving and some other important additional health information to help you get the most out of your care.

Did you notice any other changes? We are now happy so provide you with Chlorophyll Water. What is Chlorophyll? This green gem is now popping up in juice bars and in the supplement section on supermarket shelves — in both pill and liquid form — claiming health benefits from weight loss to cancer prevention. 

- Cancer: Preliminary research has shown that chlorophyll can help to mitigate the oxidative damage from cancer-causing chemicals and radiation. Chlorophyll forms a complex with the carcinogens that your body has a difficult time absorbing, so your body eliminates these complexes through feces, helping to prevent cancer.
- Liquid chlorophyll also has the ability to bind and remove toxic heavy metals like mercury from your body. Additionally, liquid chlorophyll aids your body in destroying and removing germs and helps to prevent the growth of new germs. Moreover, it is a good and effective source of magnesium that can alkalinize your body. It’s also an antioxidant, preventing harmful oxidation in the body.
- Bad breath? Digestive issues? Topical chlorophyll has been used for decades in clinical settings to help reduce odor from open wounds. From this, doctors began to provide chlorophyll orally to reduce urine and fecal odors; liquid chlorophyll can function as a deodorizer and a promoter of good digestive function. 

Remember, health is made up of four main categories. Nutrition, Movement, Thinking and Brain-Body. Which one does chiropractic help? Chiropractic is less about movement and more about brain. 90% of the nutrition to your brain comes from the stimulation and movement of your spine. When there is subluxation, your brain has a difficult time connecting and receiving information from that part of the body which results in altered AFFERENT(signal from body up to the brain) input causing the brain to respond with poor EFFERENT stimulus back to the body. Each adjustment restores balance and therefore nutrition to your brain. 

God bless,

Dr. Matt

Have you ever been explained how a Lobster grows? I never thought this would be interesting but then I read an article that explained it. 

Lobsters are soft animals that grow into a hard shell but the shell does not grow larger. So after some time the lobster experiences a lot of pressure and gets very uncomfortable while it continues to grow and expends as it presses on the rigid shell. So it goes under a rock in oder to protect itself from predators and sheds the shell in order to grow a larger one. Once it is under pressure from the new shell, it repeats the same process and this goes on for a lifetime. The stimulus of being uncomfortable is what allows for growth.  

Could you imagine if that lobster when faced with increasing pressure, constraint, resistance and adversity went to an allopathic Doctor? He would be given pain medication, Adavan or other anti-anxiety pills and told to come back if things don't get better.

We all have moments in our lives when we will be faced with our own growing pains. Moments of stress, pressure, resistance and pain. It is the adversity that brings us into new life. In my years of practice serving hundreds of patients, it is the pursuit of the cause and not the treatment of the symptoms which has allowed for health and healing. It is well researched and documented that specific adjustments cause inhibitory stress responses in the brain. This lowers cortisol, sympathetic activity and increases brain-body function. Increasing how your body performs under times of stress is the key to understanding the stimulus and making the necessary adjustments in your life. Treating the symptom and not the cause is simply not good enough. Taking pressure of my brain and spinal cord gives my body the best chance it has to be strong during a season of growth. 

We all know someone that is masking symptoms with medication or treating their symptoms and not the cause. Give them a gift that will help them grow and gain strength so they can change and break free from the shell that has been holding them back from experiencing life to the fullest. This Christmas, help change someones life.

Have a wonderful weekend, God bless you.

This article was written by Dr. Dan Sullivan

Everyone hears stories about people who spontaneously die days after receiving a clean bill of health from a medical doctor. Many know about someone in their 30’s who received a stage four cancer diagnosis without having any signs or symptoms of ill health. Though these stories are common, most of our culture continues to believe that bad health involves pain or symptoms. 

Solibrain-spinal-cord-injuryd science and research have clarified exactly why symptoms are not a good indicator of health. A paper written in 2000 titled “The Neurophysics of Human Behavior” from Furman and Gallo reported that while the brain can process several trillions bits of information per second, it appears that we are perhaps only consciously aware of 50 bits of information per second at any given time.”

This science is unbelievable and describes exactly why most dysfunction and disease goes unfelt and undetected until late stages of disease. The data from this paper describes why one of the worst things a human can do is base their health on how they feel.One of the many reasons that Chiropractors get such great results begins with Doctors of Chiropractic subscribing to the fact that the health is not just about the presence or absence of symptoms.

Chiropractors recognize that health is about function, not about feeling!

Function of the body is controlled and coordinated by the central nervous system. 

The spine has been proven to directly influence the function of the nervous system, and it does not have to cause pain to do so. 

The medimgresical profession severely misses this concept which creates significant negative consequences. In fact, over 80 percent of the entire medical and pharmaceutical industries are primarily focused on fighting symptoms as if the symptoms are the ultimate enemy. This attitude leads to the biggest dilemma in healthcare today: equating drugs and surgery to health care. 

Chiropractors focus on improving health from the inside-out by honoring and working with the intelligence that already exists within the body. 

Perpetuating the idea that the presence or absence of symptoms serves as good indicator of health will continue to lead to the deception and demise of millions. 

This is not just the opinion of Chiropractors, but a scientific fact. Any system that equates a lack of symptoms to a lack of disease is not just dangerous: it is deadly. It's time for change, don't wait until you have symptoms.

It’s Not Just About the Pain!

“What are the benefits of Chiropractic Care?”

Many people will answer something to the effect of “chiropractic can help with back or neck pain.”

Many people enter our office with a back, neck, or headache complaint and most of our population believes this is the major benefit of a Chiropractic Adjustment. 

THIS COULD NOT BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH! 

Let me explain a few compelling stories that may help reveal the true value of Chiropractic and why we believe every man, woman, and child deserves to have a Chiropractor as part of their healthcare team. 

In 1918 there was a Flu Pandemic that killed 20 million people worldwide. Over 500,000 died in the U.S. alone over an estimated 6 month period of time! 

An up and coming profession called Chiropractic was only 23 years old at the time and just making its way on the scene. Documentation shows that people who were under Chiropractic Care had 1/40th the death rate of those who were not. It became well-known that Chiropractic helped prevent both the flu and/or death from the flu. This marked a huge growth in Chiropractic awareness and literally put the new healing profession on the map….For Immune System Issues! 

gandhi1Mahatma Gandhi had been suffering from blood pressure problems for a few years prior to getting his first adjustment in 1942. After that experience, paid the Chiropractor to come live with him for three months. His frequent adjustments over  that 90 day period helped him overcome his blood pressure problems! 

(By the way, wouldn’t you think Gandhi would have been one of the last people on earth to get high blood pressure problems?)

Napoleon Hill, one of the best known authors of all-time (from the book “Think and Grow Rich”) had a son who was born deaf and without ears. When his son turned 6, Napoleon took him to a Chiropractor. After weeks of adjustments, Hill’s son’s hearing had been restored up to sixty-five percent.  After this, Napoleon spent much of his time and resources trying to bring awareness to the true power of Chiropractic. He believed that not only his son’s recovery but also his own ability to live into his late 80’s with good health was because of Chiropractic care, and he wanted the world to know its benefits. 

These are just  small  examples of some of the amazing testimonies people experience with Chiropractic Adjustments. 

Many doctors, scientists, and professors have challenged the validity and scientific credibility of Chiropractic….Know this: Chiropractic  stands up to the scrutiny over and over again. 

Let me give you some examples of what the most cutting edge research in Chiropractic shows: 

*Chiropractic helps reverse neuro-degeneration. (Diseases like alzheimer’s, dementia, parkinson’s, MS, etc) (Lipton 1994 & 2011 Research)

*Chiropractic helps you express your DNA and can actually help change bad gene expression into good gene expression. (called epigenetics…Francis 2011 Research)

*Chiropractic can slow the aging of every organ in your body. (lengthens telomeres…Blackburn 2009 Research)

*Chiropractic improves brain activity and function. (2007 Neurophysiology Research)

*Chiropractic improves immune function. (2004 & 20011 Research) 

Chiropractic is not best used as a pain reliever; Chiropractic is best used to help every man, woman, and child express their full physical, chemical, and emotional potential! 

I often say this…

“Buying an iphone just for the calculator is like using Chiropractic care just for pain!”

THIS IS WHY WE GET SO EXCITED ABOUT WHOLE FAMILIES GETTING CHECKED BY A CHIROPRACTOR REGULARLY!

WE BELIEVE IT’S NOT JUST OUR OPINION… IT’S OUR RESPONSIBILITY! 

Help us teach and show the world the Power of Chiropractic! 

IT STARTS WITH YOU!

I was less than a year into practice when a patient named Ray began telling me how much his marriage had improved since beginning Chiropractic care. He pulled me to the side of my open adjusting room, bent over my shoulder, and whispered in my ear that it was neither a psychological or emotional issue he had overcome. Chiropractic had dramatically improved his sex life! Ray’s sex life, non-existent since having his prostate removed 4 years prior to beginning Chiropractic, had returned.

images-2Chiropractic helps men get an erection! And scientific evidence supports that outcome.

Cortisol levels decrease testosterone and destroy sex drive. Being capable of sexual performance requires proper amounts of blood flow to the pelvic area and genitals. Normal body functions are altered when your nervous system is in a state of sympathetic overload, known commonly as a physiological state of fight or flight.

Research shows that a vertebral subluxation increases sympathetic overload (dominance), thus increasing a release of cortisol. The cortisol release decreases sex hormones, sex drive, and normal sexual functions.

A pharmaceutical company invented Viagra to improve heart function. The drug promoted increased blood flow and ended up creating the side effect of increased male arousal. Now, Viagra makes 50 billion dollars a year.

While the drug grew in popularity and profitability, many men reported unfulfilling sexual experiences with their partners. These men described the physical experience as feeling fake and inauthentic, as if their sexual instrument was not even attached to their body.

Research done in 2009 and in 2011 proved that vertebral subluxation directly relates to an increase in cortisol.

A Chiropractic adjustment balances cortisol levels by decreasing sympathetic dominance and stress hormones. The result speaks for itself in a variety of health benefits, including increased libido and sexual satisfaction.

Many of life’s greatest gifts and pleasures become significantly enhanced through the power of Chiropractic care.

God Bless,

Dr. Matthew Posa D.C.

Hint: It’s not about learning a new way to cope with it…
We are fighting an impossible battle if our goal is to eliminate stress.

Stress will be a permanent fixture in all of our lives….that’s a fact! And stress does kill!

However, the key to a healthy life and future is to properly adapt to stress.

I hate it when the experts instruct people to learn how to better cope with stress or that society must manage stress better.

What does that mean? How do you learn to manage stress? How would you know you are doing it well?

We believe that stress is not about just learning to cope with it.

In fact, there is something you were born with that has all the answers….YOU!

Think about it, you did not have to remind your heart to beat this morning, or your lungs to breathe, guts to digest, blood to travel…you get the point!

The intelligence that made you, and keeps you ticking every day, holds the answers to managing stress. Your body already contains the capacity to fully adapt to stress without you even thinking about it. The key is to remove anything that would get in the way of your brain-body connection.

Science is now showing us a secret key to unlock this innate potential to deal with stress.

Check this out…
b2ap3_thumbnail_11099719_1053203024693808_5650339404637525201_n.jpg

The picture above is from a study of a brain under MRI imaging. On the left you see the brain lit up many areas. It looks like you are flying over a city at night and looking down at all the lights.
They put this individual in the MRI and then created a stress in his body to measure how the brain responds. The spots of light represent all the areas the brain is recruiting to help adapt and handle that stress.

What happens next is revolutionary….

They took that same person out of the MRI and gave him a chiropractic adjustment. Once he was under the MRI scan again they created the same stress as before to monitor the brain’s response.The picture on the right is the same person adapting to the same stress, this time after a chiropractic adjustment. WOW!

Was there less stress? Nope, it was exactly the same.

But his scan clearly shows less areas being recruited to cope with the stress.

Chiropractic adjustments bring balance, harmony, and organization! Less energy and more efficiency in dealing with stress is a result of Chiropractic care.
It is a key component to dealing with stress!

The name of the game is Adapting!

Equip yourself properly.

Let’s tell the world about this!

 

God Bless,
