Walnut Creek Chiropractor Weekly Sticky: Clean Garbage Cans Don’t Attract Flies

Ever notice that flies like to congregate around dirty, neglected garbage cans? You don’t usually see them swarming near clean ones. The same can be said for germs, bugs and viruses.

Germs are like flies… they’re opportunistic. Give them a dirty place to settle and they’ll multiply. Provide a weak host and they’ll take advantage. But that’s not the case in clean, well kept environments. BJ Palmer, the developer of Chiropractic said ‘if the germ theory was true, we would all be dead…’ He recognized that germs thrive in dis-eased (Subluxated) individuals who can’t fight back, not healthy strong ones.

If you keep your body tidy with proper hygiene, good nutrition and most important – a clear Nerve System, germs and bugs are less capable of taking up residence in you. And if they make the mistake of trying too, you’re healthy well-adjusted body will give them the boot! Go see your chiropractor

Chiropractor Weekly Sticky: 101 Ways to Get Subluxated

Number 27 – Dropping 420 lbs on your head at the Olympics. Can you imagine gold medalist weight lifter Matthias Steiner’s next Chiropractic visit… ‘hey doc, my neck’s sore and I’ve been getting these bad headaches. Think it could be my pillow?”

The father of Chiropractic, D.D. Palmer recognized 3 ‘T’s as being the major cause of nerve interfer- ence (aka Subluxation): Trauma, Toxins and Thoughts. The first ‘T’ is pretty obvious, but many patients overlook the last two. TOXINS come in the form of pesticides, artificial additives in our food, cigarette smoke and the most common of all, pharmaceuticals (yes, drugs are foreign to the body and put added stress on your nerve system). Constant THOUGHTS of fear, worry and depression can also weaken your sensitive nerve system and make it harder to heal.

Many patients believe it’s only physical things like car accidents, bad pillows and the occasional ‘400 lbs barbell on the head’ that can cause nerve interference, when in reality it’s the daily bombardment of hid- den food toxins and stressful thoughts that commonly do the most damage.

Chiropractor Weekly Sticky: Once You Start Eating Broccoli…

chiropractic

… do you have to eat it for the rest of your Life? The answer is obviously no, unless your parents still have an iron grip on your diet. No one can force you to do something that’s good for your health and your Life if you don’t want to.

If you don’t want to renew that gym membership, go to yoga classes or reduce your stress with meditation, that’s up to you. Don’t feel like watching your sugar intake or taking your vitamins, the choice is yours to reap the benefits or face the consequences. And the same goes for your Chiropractic care.

That rumor that says ‘once you start Chiropractic care, you have to keep going for the rest of your life’ is a big fallacy. Although it’s true, many clients who start Chiropractic CHOOSE to continue with mainte- nance care because they appreciate the truckload of Life benefits that goes with having a strong spine and clear Nerve System… no one is forcing them to do so. They do it because it simply makes sense – just like eating their broccoli.

Chiropractor Weekly Sticky: Repetition Restores

chiropractic

If your hand was taped in one position for years, and someone cut the tape off and tried to move it, what do you think would happen? Your hand would snap back to the position it was stuck in for all that time. But with repetition – normal movement and alignment can be restored. The same goes for your spine.

When vertebrae are misaligned and stuck chronically over time (subluxated), supporting muscles and ligaments tend to ‘hold’ them in that position. The first time a Chiropractor tries to adjust it, just like the taped hand, the vertebrae may shift back to the old position it was stuck in. That’s why ‘one and done’ rarely works in Chiropractic. It takes repetition to change.

Frequency and repetition are necessary components of any successful Chiropractic care plan. The more consistent you are with your adjustments, the better the results. For Chiropractors, the definition of sanity is doing the right thing over and over again until health is restored.

Chiropractor Weekly Sticky: Real Doctor in the Mirror

The specialists say you have allergies, asthma, sleep apnea, depression, chronic fatigue, GERD and fibromyalgia. They say you’ll be on a dozen different medications for the rest of your life. But what does the doctor looking back at you in the mirror say?

The doctor in the mirror says you have an innate wisdom inside, capable of RE-CREATING a health- ier version you. A ‘you’ without allergies, asthma, sleep apnea, depression, chronic fatigue, GERD or fibromyalgia. That doctor is just waiting for you to remove the roadblock.

Health is your birthright. Health is your natural state. Health is what you experience when you have a clear nerve system. Don’t be imprisoned by the whitecoat’s diagnosis, it’s merely a temporary state. Find chiropractors who work with the doctor inside you, like Dr. Nick Baker and you’ll leave sickness and dis-ease behind in the dust.
