Help With Anxiety and Depression

Everyone wants to be healthy, but sometimes things get in the way and you need a little help to get by.

When someone is diagnosed with depression and anxiety normally their first thought is to get medicated, which is one route to take.  Another route is chiropractic care.

The use of benzodiazepines, like Xanax and Valium, are classes of medication with sedative properties are prescribed for insomnia, anxiety and other conditions. The dark reality is that with these types of prescriptions are over 30% of the prescription drug overdose death causes. The medicine thickens the inner and middle layers of the arteries, particularly affecting the carotid arteries, which feed the blood to your brain. For men, the risk of heart disease rises once you start taking antidepressants

A recent study with 15 participants, all that had a history of depression, was diagnosed with an upper cervical misalignment. All patients were provided with a questionnaire prior and then two weeks into chiropractic care. 73% of participants scored a marked improvement with their questionnaire, with only 13% showing only slight improvement.

In conclusion, if your first, second or third vertebrae become misaligned they put pressure on the normal production of brain chemicals, such as serotonin and dopamine. As a result, serotonin levels can lower, causing a shift in your mood and actions. Getting regular alignments at your chiropractor may help!

Groundless Fears

This blog is different. Instead of posting every day or even weekly, I ONLY post when I have come across something that is of substantial benefit to you. Here’s one that I believe is.

We all have felt the bondage of fear. Some of you may be dealing with it now. Below you will find a few words by the Roman Stoic Philosopher Seneca. I have yet to read anything that addresses fear better. These words were taken from Letter #13: On Groundless Fears.

“There are more things likely to frighten us than to crush us. We suffer more often from imagination than reality.”

“Some things torment us more than they ought, some torment us before they ought and others torment us when they ought not to torment us at all.”

“How often has the expected never come to pass? Oftentimes we are frightened by uncertainties as if they are certain. So look forward to better things.”

Have a great week!

“My name is John. I’ve been on high blood pressure pills for over 10 years now. There has been no change.  In fact, there has been an increase until I started taking chiropractic practices and have diminished some of my meds. I have found now that my range of blood pressure is acceptable which is good after 10 years of looking for help here, there and everywhere!”

Aging Badly?

For years our patients have been telling us that they have more energy, slump over less and look less tired as a result of receiving SPECIFIC chiropractic adjustments.

New cutting edge research explains why chiropractic care SLOWS AGING. Here’s how it works….studies show that adjustments LOWER catecholomine levels which slows aging. Catecholomines speed-up the destruction of cell decay and a chiropractic adjustments help to BLOCK the aging process.

If you haven’t had a specific chiropractic adjustment lately, it will put your body at ease, improve posture, clear your mind and slow aging!

Health is not just how you FEEL but also how you LOOK!

Cheese Consumption CAUSES People to Die in Their Sleep

By the looks of this graph you may come to the conclusion that cheese is causing people to suffocate in their bed sheets. This is the same “slight of hand” the pharmaceutical industry uses to sell you drugs with little to no effectiveness. Researchers use a matrix called “Patients Needed to Treat” or NNT. NNT is the number of patients who must be treated with a drug before ONE person reaps the benefit. For example, the NNT for statin drugs is 250! Research found (link below) that taking statin drugs daily for 5 YEARS produces only a 1.6% chance of avoiding a heart attack. Bottom line, high cholesterol is not correlated with heart attacks any more than cheese is correlated with suffocation in bed!

http://www.thennt.com/nnt/statins-for-heart-disease-prevention-without-prior-heart-disease/

Statin drugs DO LOWER cholesterol BUT do NOT result in any significant drop in heart attack or stroke. This is why even the New England Journal of Medicine has stated that high cholesterol is not a precursor to a future heart event. Deception and POOR RESULTS like these are why 2 MILLION PEOPLE DAILY are turning to regular chiropractic care to promote health.  If you have never had a SPECIFIC chiropractic adjustment, it clears the mind, sets the body at ease and is a great health insurance policy.

Autism in the Eyes

When I first meet a child diagnosed with autism whose parents bring him to me to see how chiropractic care can help, I always look to the eyes first.
Invariably, the child has moderate to extreme difficultly focusing. With the constant eye movement also comes circular motions of the head and a generalized incoordination of motor function. The child is disconnected from themselves and their environment and doing their very best to make sense of their universe. After we have conducted our initial neurological testing and deliver the first specific adjustment, I tell the parents what to expect. 90% of the time the child will take a long nap or sleep for a prolonged period throughout the night. They will usually be much more calm and relaxed as well.
I also tell them to pay close attention to the eyes.  The eyes truly are windows to the soul. We begin to see in those distant, unfocused eyes the awakening of that soul. Or, more appropriately termed, the unveiling or immersion of it as the child begins to become more fully integrated into his environment.

His light was dim and in a week a spark was lit.
His face lacked the normal vibrancy of youth and today I saw it restored.
What was once a slumped, depressed version was now the grinning, shining spirit I always knew was there.
Yes, the eyes tell us much, and mine witnessed something beautiful today.
