Your Body Is At War!

Your world is constantly assaulting you with physical, emotional, toxic, environmental, and chemical stresses. We are fighting a constant war of adaptation. It is a war of high stakes – your life and health! Life requires constant adaptation.

How Is This War Fought?

Symptoms are the mechanisms your body uses to bring you into balance (or homeostasis). Symptoms may be uncomfortable, but they are necessary. These include diarrhea, vomiting, fever, sneezing, coughing, sweating, shivering (as mentioned above), mucus and pus, skin eruptions, fatigue, lack of appetite (natural fasting), and many more. These are natural ways you cleanse, detox, and heal.

Symptoms are not diseases; they are the cure for diseases. Suppressing symptoms can lead to deeper health problems. Whether or not you’ll get symptoms and how quickly they go away depends on your ability to respond to and adapt to challenges.

Adaption Is Emotional As Well As Physical

Two people may experience great emotional stress, such as divorce or death in a family. One will grieve for a short time and recover, while the other may fall into a prolonged depression. Why? It depends on how well they can adapt.

Chiropractic For Adaptation

Your nervous system: brain, spinal cord, and billions of nerves that travel to every nook and cranny in your body continuously transmit information. Adaptation is dependent upon this communication. You need a healthy nervous system, so it may send messages all over your body so you may adapt most efficiently,

Structural subluxations can interfere with your nervous system, weakening you on many levels. Subluxations may stress your brain, spinal cord, and outlying nerves. Chiropractic care is dedicated to locating and correcting your subluxations, permitting your nervous system to operate with less stress – helping you adapt physically, chemically, and emotionally.

Keep yourself and your family adapting at their peak – get regular chiropractic care for your brain, spinal cord, and nervous system health.

Sport & Chiropractic

Top athletes from all over the world rely on Chiropractic to keep their body structure balanced, their nervous system healthy, and their muscles and joints functioning at their peak.

Name the sport: golf, tennis, baseball, football, soccer, track, swimming, hockey, martial arts, wrestling, and all the others – Top players in all these fields use chiropractic to give them the winning edge. Why? Chiropractic promotes better balance, improved coordination, increased strength, and vitality. Athletes are fine-tuned and very sensitive to their bodies. That’s why they make some of the most grateful chiropractic patients.

Because of the above benefits, Chiropractic can help prevent sports injuries and can also help an injured player return to the game or competition faster.

Of course, you don’t need to be an Olympian or a professional athlete to go to a chiropractor; anyone who uses their body needs it to function at its peak. That means everyone: computer users, even kids on their smartphones (they especially need Chiropractic structural care).

The Germ Theory

Today news stories are all about germs causing infections, epidemics, and pandemics with a new “variant” ready to get us. What if germs didn’t cause disease?

Germs are all around us. We breathe germs all the time, and they inhabit every nook and cranny of our bodies; we have a balanced relationship with them. Our obsession with germs is based on The Germ Theory. It was born when the microscope was discovered, and germs were found in sick people. The theory says that a different germ causes every disease. This theory has only one problem – it has never been proven. In fact, the opposite has been proven.

The Alternative

The hygienic system has been around for thousands of years and has survived the test of time. It says that germs don’t make you sick; instead, when your body is sick (malnourished, toxic, subluxated, tired, weak, stressed), germs appear to eat weak, diseased, dying, and toxic tissue.

When your tissues are strong, infections don’t exist, and the billions of germs always in and around us don’t grow out of control.

Don’t Be Scared Of Germs

The bottom line is that healthy people don’t get other people sick. Sick people don’t make people sick. Stop being scared of germs; they have their place. You can’t escape them from entering your body unless you stop eating, drinking, and breathing. There are many valid reasons why people in the same household come down with similar symptoms, but germs are not one of them. It’s an unproven superstition.

In experiments, sick people were placed near healthy volunteers, sat close to them, sneezed, coughed on them, and even had bodily fluids placed in their noses and mouths. None of the volunteers got sick. Underlining that was a report in the British Medical Journal that “asymptomatic transmission of disease” does not exist. A study of almost 10 million people found “no evidence of asymptomatic transmission.” People without symptoms don’t make people sick. (1) So much for the logic behind masks.

What To Do?

Get back to basics – healthy food (avoid junk), good sleep, good relationships, clean water, plumbing, sewage, and waste disposal – these are what have gotten rid of the plagues of the past. It was never vaccines or drugs. The best foods are raw milk from grass-fed cows and goats, olive oil, coconut oil, butter, cream, ghee, lard, and tallow as fats/oils. Also, get a good water filter to remove toxic chlorine, fluoride, and other chemicals.

To give your health a boost, get chiropractic care! Life is full of stress, falls, and accidents; your body will function better and be stronger with chiropractic care. Other forms of natural care, like chiropractic, remove blockages to energy and healing are traditional homeopathy, acupuncture, traditional osteopathy, traditional naturopathy, and many traditional detoxification practices.

Getting Sick Prevents Cancer & Heart Disease?

This may seem a bit crazy or at least questionable but stick with us; there’s a method to our madness.
The school of Natural Hygiene is humanity’s traditional healing system and is thousands of years old. It is based on ancient wisdom learned from experience. It understands those acute symptoms such as fever, vomiting, diarrhea, rash, sneezing, and coughing are mechanisms the body uses to detoxify, cleanse, rebalance, strengthen and heal. The medical model is primarily based on the suppression of uncomfortable symptoms with drugs. Suppression prevents the body from externalizing disease and drives disease deeper into the body. In addition, suppression has been linked to chronic (more dangerous and long-lasting) illness. For thousands of years, using natural hygiene, humanity, when clean food and water were present, was healthier than people are today. Chronic illnesses such as heart disease and cancer have exploded in the past 100 years. Modern medicine’s obsession with drugs and vaccines (along with poor nutrition) is a major reason why nearly everyone is so sick, and over half of all Americans (of all ages) are suffering from chronic illness. Letting people get sick is beneficial. Please click here to continue to read the rest of our November Newsletter.

Do Infants Benefit from Chiropractic?

Chiropractic for infants? Do they have low back pain? Of course not! Infants need chiropractic care to ensure that the stress of gestation, labor, and delivery has not damaged their spines and delicate structure.

Infants can be damaged by falls – statistics tell us that nearly half of all babies have fallen from a height (off the changing table, off the bed, down the stairs, etc.).

Chiropractic care helps ensure s healthy baby with better resistance to disease, a better ability to discharge toxins, a better ability to absorb nutrients, and overall better body function. Also, correcting subluxations may help a baby who is ill return to health more quickly and comfortably.

There are many case histories of chiropractic helping children with all kinds of conditions – asthma, colic, constipation, difficulty breastfeeding, ear infections, autism spectrum disorder, vision and hearing disorders, neurological conditions- no matter what conditions babies may have, chiropractic care can help them grow into healthy, happy children.

Chiropractic Discovery

We say “modern chiropractic” because spinal care is thousands of years old and found in cultures all over the world. But this natural, drug-free, powerful, and yet safe healing art was, as often happens, lost amidst the sands of time. Unfortunately, humankind then became infatuated with drugs, chemicals, and surgery.

Spinal care was rediscovered in 1895 by Dr. Daniel David Palmer, who practiced in Davenport, Iowa. DD Palmer was a magnetic healer (energy healer), scientist, and researcher who “accidentally” restored a man’s deafness by adjusting his spine. This discovery was the seed from which modern chiropractic grew.

This newspaper ad, “Are You Sick and Disheartened,” was one of a series of broadsides from the turn of the century. Dr. Palmer describes his old/new discovery and invites the public to discover this amazing drug-free, natural, safe, and powerful healing art, science, and philosophy for themselves. The list of people suffering from nearly every condition who benefitted from his “hand ministrations” (his original name for chiropractic) was impressive. Many traveled far and wide to experience and benefit from DD Palmer’s discovery.

Dr. Palmer opened a school to teach others; soon, his students spread to all parts of the US, Canada, Europe, and beyond. This made-in-America healing art has brought relief, health, and healing to millions of people, from infants to the elderly and everyone in between.

Please tell your friends and relatives that there is a safe alternative to drugs and surgery with no side effects – except satisfaction!
