Chiropractic Myth #5: Spinal Adjustments Are Dangerous

Chiropractic adjustments are safe when performed by a Doctor of Chiropractic, but can be

dangerous when performed by another healthcare professional that is less trained in the area of expertise.  It has been shown that Chiropractic adjustments are among the safest and most effective ways to treat back and neck pain.  Conservative spinal manipulations should be pursued in most cases before considering drug and surgical intervention.

 

Did you know that we will take drugs that are ranked #3 for caused deaths in the US, but we will believe the first thing we see on the internet about how Chiropractic is dangerous?  “Did you know that the amount of people that die from taking prescription drugs is equivalent to six (6) jumbo jets crashing each day?  To put this for face value, remember Sept. 11th, 2001?  The total people who had died throughout the whole event were 2,996 people.  To equivalent to the amount of deaths listed below, we would have roughly 261 Sept. 11ths each year from the deaths caused by prescription drugs.”  (1)

 

The result of injury following a chiropractic treatment is less than 0.01% according to medical studies.  This compares with a much higher risk of invasive procedures involving injections, medications, and surgeries. Some people fear they will have a stroke if their neck is adjusted; the truth is there is no scientific evidence to show an increase risk of any serious event following a chiropractic adjustment.  “There are some who suggest that the chance of having a stroke after a spinal manipulation is about 1 in 1,000,000.  This number has never been scientifically proven it is only estimated, but it shows that you have a better chance of being struck by lightening, being killed on a bicycle and dying from taking aspirin then by being seriously injured by chiropractic care.”  (2)

 

Through all the scrutiny that Chiropractic has gone through, still proves it is the safest and most effective way to aid in one’s healthcare.  “Chiropractic has been around for 117 years and still to this day, 0 deaths just as 0 deaths also for vitamins.  Rather, we will follow a medical model for our healthcare that has around 783,936 deaths per year from medications…” (1)  Which one do you feel more confidence in?

Chiropractic Myth #4: Spinal Adjustments are Painful…

People usually feel instant relief after a spinal adjustment.  Patients tend to get off the table feeling more relaxed,

 higher energy, out of discomfort/pain . Patients that are in an acute pain level sometimes experience pain during the actual adjustment because any movement during the acute phase causes them pain, but after the treatment they usually feel relief and a decrease in the pain level.

 

The analogy I always use is, “Have you ever hit your thumb with a hammer?”  What is the first thing that you do after hitting your thumb?  Exactly!  You pull back and shake your hand.  And does that relieve the pain?  Yes!  How does this relate to your spine?  A lack of motion within the spine increase the chances of experience pain.  Once we input motion within the spine, pain decreases.  Within the nervous system, the more motion we put into the spi
Going to a chiropractor for just pain is like buying the best smartphone in the world and only using it for phone calls.  You are not utilizing every single benefit you can get from Chiropractic nor your very nice smartphone.  Now, if you utilize Chiropractic for Wellness, for overall health and vitality, you are using your smartphone for social media, email, texting, internet, GPS, restaurants, travel, work, etc.   Which would you want?ne, the more it shuts off pain fibers which means LESS TO NO MORE PAIN!  This is why Chiropractic is so effective with pain but it is more effective on the overall health of one’s body!

Anger Fueling It Into Action…

Ever see something done upon someone and couldn’t do anything to help?  Or how about an issue that people are just blind to?  My fuel got started yesterday when I see a baby who is perfectly happy, ecstatic, smiling and just full of joy and the next day, find out he receives two shots for his recommended scheduled vaccines and I hold the baby in my hand, irritable, warm, twitching, cannot stay still and just uneasy with loud bursts of cries.  It fueled me and woke something up in me that I will not back down.  It has fired me up so much, and it had to happen in my own home, within my own family.  As I look at how helpless this baby is, all I can think of is all the babies that are fed this junk as the medical establishment continues to fuel this poison into our babies.  How about the babies that created autistic symptoms after having a vaccine?  How about the many infants that DIED after having vaccines and what the poor parents, what they thought was the right thing to do, have to go through that emotional turmoil and blame themselves for the next years to come?  What about the lower IQs that are created from vaccines?  What about the decreased immune system or the injected cancer viruses that are within this toxic cocktails?  The foreign proteins?  Aborted fetal tissue?  Harmful metals like mercury, aluminum, lead?  How about having anti-freeze or formaldehyde within these toxic cocktails?  This is poisoning humanity…

When we will wake up?  When we, as humans, as a society as a whole, stand up and question the establishment?  We give authority to the one thing that all people would die for, our children, our future…  We sacrifice everything for them, even our happiness.  When will WE together, challenge them?  Hell, challenge everything…  I even tell my own practice members, CHALLENGE ME… ASK the questions WHY WHY WHY WHY?  I want them to know exactly what is going on, the process and why I recommend it…  To see an infant, helpless and cannot do anything for itself except suffer, IS NOT AN OPTION in my book.  It is sad to say, it had to happen in my own home to see something like this.  As I held this baby in my arms, held him with my hands, I did the most intense energy work I have ever done in my life.  I prayed to the archangels Ralphael, Michael and Metatron.  I reached out to the ascended master Jesus and Kuthami.  I prayed to my guardian angels and spiritual guides to guide my hands and use my body as a conduit.  I gave the most powerful adjustment I could ever give to this little guy.

I said to myself, Lord, God, Angels, Ascended Masters, ArchAngels…  I pull all the light within and help this little guy break the barriers that were FORCED upon him to limit his potential.  My stomach turned as I felt the baby’s pain.  As the time went on, he laid their calm.  He was not moving as much.  He held my hands for about 15 minutes and wouldn’t let go.  He was looking up at me and just stared.  He felt at peace.  As I let him rest, I made it a vow that this will not ever happen on my watch with my family… My family consist of my friends, my family, my practice members…  No one should ever be limited to what their potential is.  And this will not be done to my lil nephew.

I stand for humanity.  My tools of what I use to stand up for humanity is Chiropractic, Nutrition, Exercise, Meditation, Mind-Body connection (besides just chiropractic) and Holistic Energy Work.  Without your health, you have put a limit on your life, your purpose and your light.  Without health, you cannot live your potential and express your light upon the world.  You cannot reach the highest of what you can achieve without having 100% health.  Without health, what do you have?  It doesn’t matter if you have millions, billions or trillions…  Without your health, you will be spending all of that money to attempt to regain your health.  We live in a world where it is all about limiting who you are and not allowing you to express your unique talent.  People may mock you and make fun of you if you take a step outside your comfort zone.  I say, the one’s who mock are the ones who do not have the strength, courage and will to take that step.  The one’s who mock are the ones who cannot do.  They are the one’s in the stands, watching a basketball game and acting like they are an expert and could do better.  Do not let anyone limit who you are or what you do.

In conclusion, regardless if it is your health, a purpose in life, your potential, striving to be better than who you are or living a purpose life that is beyond what you could measure, NEVER and I mean, NEVER, let anyone limit yourself.  You are a spiritual being living a human experience on the playground called, “Earth.”  There is something called, “The Human Factor,” that is unpredictable, immeasurable and limitless.  It cannot be determined to what degree the heart can  expand to.  Quantum physics states this.  My creed to you is, “Let no one limit you.  Stand for what you believe.  Live your life purposefully.  People will mock you.  They will make fun of you.  Do not back down.  Stand up.  If you fall down, get back up.”  As Rocky Balboa said, “It is not about how hard you can hit, it is about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward.”  How much you can take and keep moving forward.  This is how winning and success is.  The model of success is following your passion and heart.  Being committed to what you desire and never backing down.  Knowing within your mind, it will happen, one way or another and along the journey, no matter how difficult it may be, it is all tests to challenge you to prepare you for the quest you desire.  Have no fear, let go, just be and surrender to all and you will get there.  Difference between successful people and non is the successful one’s do what the unsuccessful one’s won’t do.”

After the episode with my nephew and then this morning watching the movie, “The Condemned,” it fired me up beyond belief and I felt I had to share this with the world.  By the way, my lil nephew Joey woke up today a new baby.  He was smiling, not crying much and what brought a tear to my eye is when I put him in my arms, he looked at me with a smile.  It doesn’t get any better than that.  The establishments of GREED may harm humanity to gain their profits, but they can never win against the LIGHT.  And I am, as we all, are pure light from the divine and the power of the sun resides within our heart.  Unleash it!  Have faith and know you can move worlds as long as you believe it…   Until next time…

A Human Being with a purpose…

Namaste

Chiropractic Myth #3: Chiropractors Only Treat Back Pain

Back pain is what Chiropractors are known for, but the root of Chiropractic is much deeper

 than that.  Chiropractors affect your spinal column, which in turn affects your nerves and tissues.  This allows us to help your body heal itself so you can develop Wellness from Within.  Some of the non soft tissue conditions we can help treat are: migraine headaches, ear infections, colic, ADD, sinus issues, common cold, dysmenorrhea  (painful menses), ulcers and bowel complications, just to list a few.

Within the spine, we have two types of branches of our spinal nerves.  The back branch is the one most people are familiar with which causes headaches, neck pain and back pain.  But what isn’t talked about is the front branch which controls all the functions of every organ, tissue and cell.  If these nerves are not functioning properly, it can create imbalances within the body which overtime can create symptoms, illness and have the body function under par.

Chiropractic Myth #2: Chiropractic Doctors Are Not Real Doctors

Doctors of Chiropractic and Doctors of Medicine take the same class load with a few exceptions that you can see in the table to the right. Residencies are required by both degrees prior to graduation. These entail the student successfully completing several hundred clinical hours of “real” patient management in a clinical setting under professional supervision.  Most Chiropractic colleges require students to partake in a clinical externship program which places them in actual chiropractic offices, which allows them to enhance their knowledge on clinical skills, as well as, how to run an office from all aspects. Both Doctors have to successfully complete National Board Exams prior to obtaining a license.  Continuing education is then required to maintain a high level of competency and to stay up to date on the latest research and techniques for both Doctorate degrees.  In the end, Chiropractors study more than medical doctors do.  Which doctor would you want to be in control of your healthcare?

Chiropractic Myth #1: Not Very Many People Go To See A Chiropractor

Chiropractic is the 3rd largest primary health care profession in the western world next to Medicine and Dentistry.  Chiropractic is the largest alternative healthcare profession in the United States.  Statistics show that about 10-15% of the American population (30 to 40 million people) have seen a Chiropractor before.  And it is expected with the W
olution occurring, Chiropractors are the only primary health care profession who are fully equipped to help each individual on a wellness perspective.  Because we are masters of the nervous system but we also learn and understand nutrition and its importance to the body.  We understand and are learning more about proper exercise, sleep and mental/emotional conditions as it plays a major part in one’s health. ellness Rev

My question is, would you want to go to a doctor that only is a master of seeking for disease or would you want to go to a doctor who is a master of providing health at the foundational root for each individual?
