Restoring your health through the 6 steps to wellness:
1. Reestablish Structure and Nerve Function
Your nervous system is your body's electrical system - it controls and manages all functions of your body. If a nerve is pinched by an out of place vertebrae, then it is not functioning at its optimal level, which means your body will not be responding as it should.
Upper neck and other misalignments could be caused by a number of reasons with the most common being accidents, falls, incorrect lifting, improper sleeping positions, poor posture, lack of exercise, stress, etc.
If our tissues, muscles and/or fascial movements are restricted it can cause interference with the electrical impulses moving through them. Pain and disorder are not the initial cause but are actually key indicators of what could be nerve interference.
In your initial personalized exam, we will analyze your spine and clinical findings to establish the most accurate and enjoyable way to correct any nerve interferences, structural and soft tissue imbalances leading to your health problems. We find most common problems can be addressed through precise Laser Aligned X-ray techniques and analysis, adjusting techniques and therapies. Most patients' experience a marked reduction in their pain syndromes during their first visit. The common comment is "WOW"... that feels different!

2. Nutrition–Junk food is now the rule–not the exception
Today in the US, we live with the conveniences of fast food, microwave ovens and an endless selection of delicious processed products all packaged with a yummy picture inviting you to take them home. Problem is that not only has this new way of life been a convenience for the over worked and over stressed, but also for unfriendly bacteria to silently take hold of our bodies due to the diminishing ability of our white blood cells to fight back.
According to the standard American diet, 95% are deficient in one or more minerals necessary for bone mineralization, 20% never eat vegetables, 40% rarely consume fruits/fruit juices and 80% never consume whole grains or high-fiber foods. These deficiencies can contribute to stressed organs and glands as well as the spreading of infective organisms like viruses, bacteria, yeast, and parasites. A Deficiency in enzymes may contribute to acid reflux, gas, bloating, and even the dysfunction of the colon causing constipation and/or diarrhea. All of which can open the door to serious health problems later in life if not addressed today.
Diet programs can and will be designed to meet your goals and needs if required. You are what you consume. The body is an instrument that needs special fuel to sustain its being. The diet of the new America is killing more and more people daily. Let's make a change today and restore your opportunity for great health and a better sense of well-being.
3. Healthy/Effective Detoxification: Essential Removal of Heavy Metals, Pesticides and Other Toxins
We live in a society overcome with pollutants and heavy metal toxins both natural and synthetic. They exist in our air, water, food, clothing and the environments in which we live, work, play and sleep. As a result, our bodies are depleted of crucial life giving elements, leaving us to feel drained of energy and hinder our ability to heal naturally from illnesses, injuries and medical procedures.
Exposures to these toxins are not blatantly obvious to us and are hard to pinpoint as a cause for illness. Some toxins are naturally occurring chemicals that our body has a hard time breaking down. Researchers and experts in environmental medicine tell us that it is not a question of if our bodies are burdened with toxic overload but "how bad is it." Common problems of toxicity include: headaches, fatigue, general joint and muscle pain, skin disorders like rashes and eczema, asthma and allergies. Many toxins are neurotoxins like monosodium glutamate and mercury and affect our brain functions such as memory, punctual thinking and moods.
4. ALLERGIES- Stop & Smell The Roses Again:
Many people have had allergies since they were young or have developed them over time. Your allergies are not necessarily something you have to live with. Using our methods, we can determine the root of thee allergy or sensitivity and take measures to help you overcome it.
Conventional estimates suggest that 40 million people in the US suffer from allergies of different kinds. There are basically three causes of allergies: 1) A substance in the environment such as dust, mold, pollen, etc. 2) Foods or food additives such as corn, milk, soy, etc. 3) Metabolic By-products (bodily fluids and tissues).
Allergic reactions can mimic a wide range of diseases and disorders and lead to confused immune system responses that start killing off friendly protective bacteria in our GI tracts. As a result, this opens the door for infective organisms to multiply. Your allergies are not necessarily something you have to live with.
Our methods have been very effective for a variety of patients and are completely natural.
You don't need to spend your whole life depending on a medication to reduce your allergies or avoid certain foods–it could just be a matter of working with your body's physiological programming to train your body to respond differently to substances that cause negative effects.
5. Release Emotional Patterns and Limiting Beliefs
Emotion has been shown by the latest research to be a complex reaction between the body and mind. This results in chemical reactions in the brain and cells, which produces an energy that literally radiates from each of us. Our individual patterns of thought and behavior are caused by our own perceptions related to past experiences.
Perceptions and beliefs are represented by the stored configurations of memory held in an electromagnetic field we call our mind. Our past experiences and our perceptions of them control our reflex emotional responses. These emotional reflexes can then be re-played and create interferences to our normal functions in life and limit our ability to perceive situations properly.
At our clinic we understand that many of your physical problems may either directly or indirectly be related to your emotions. We use a variety of methods to help you overcome any negative emotions you may be experiencing and causing you unexplained depression, anxiety and/or phobias of all calibers even when you may not be aware. We use a combination of color therapy, emotional release therapy and behavior modification techniques to clear negative emotional energy that is affecting you.
6. Rebalance Electromagnetic
We live in a world of electromagnetism that works against our own body's natural electromagnetic field every day. Much like a magnet has positive and negative polarities, our own body's cells, organs and systems are made up of positive and negative polarities or electromagnetic signals to function. This is how we are able to measure the electrical activity of the heart using an ECG/EKG and the Brain using an EEG.
When electromagnetic pollution from power lines, airwave communication, fluorescent lights, TV's, computers, cell phones, microwaves and yes even the electric clock by the bed begins to accumulate, our entire system becomes stressed to the point of exhaustion. Many may feel weak, experience an increase of headaches, and/or notice a decline in their vision. The most alarming possible side effect is a silent one that causes cells to no longer build and repair the body properly, ultimately allowing illness to set in.
What can you do about all of this electromagnetic pollution? We can check your body for stress using Muscle Response Testing (AK) to quickly assess any disruption in your body's natural electrical activity. Then if needed, we have special techniques that we use to help you shield yourself against harmful effects of electromagnetic pollution.
