Boosting Your Immunity Through Chiropractic

In 1975, Ronald Pero, Ph.D., chief of cancer prevention research at New York’s Preventive Medicine Institute and professor of medicine in Environmental Health at New York University, began developing scientifically valid ways to estimate individual susceptibility to various chronic diseases. Pero and his colleagues found strong evidence that susceptibility to cancer could be gauged by the activities of various enzymes involved in metabolic and genetic changes due to exposure to carcinogenic or “mutagenic” chemicals. An individual’s immune system responsiveness, or “immune competence,” also was directly linked to certain DNA-repairing enzymes, which provided an objective way to assess disease susceptibility. [...]

Breast Self-Examination

Breast self-examination is regularly practiced by one out of four women.  After all, more than 90 percent of cancers are found by women themselves, and we all have heard that early detection is the key to “winning the war on cancer.”  Early detection is encouraged by the American Cancer Society, the American College of Radiology and the Canadian Association of Radiologists.  Should more women examine themselves and be regularly examined by their physicians?  The answer would be a resounding yes if regular examination could prevent untimely deaths from breast cancer.  But the evidence just isn’t there.  In fact, this [...]

Captain of Your Ship

Paranoia is rampant in our country.  Not paranoia of the terrorists but paranoia of sickness, disease, and death.   Between Breast Cancer, West Nile Virus, High Cholesterol, etc, etc, etc, we have become “A nation of hypochondriacs.” (1)  Everywhere we look a new test pops up in the name of prevention.  These tests vary from treadmill tests, mammograms, to colonoscopies.  Are these tests truly for prevention? I say “No”.  These tests show problems when disease has already been entrenched.  A positive finding now allows doctors to treat a disease.  Many times the treatment, via drugs or surgery, is more frightening than [...]

Did You Know

Did you know…In an independent study, chiropractic patients (getting checked for spinal misalignments at least once per month for 5 years or longer) were found to have a 200 percent greater immune system than people whom were not under chiropractic care. Did you know…Expectant mothers have a 34% less time of labor when seeing a chiropractor once every two weeks during their term of pregnancy. Did you know…Chiropractic started in 1895 when D.D. Palmer, a self taught anatomist, adjusted his janitor Harvey Lillard and his hearing was restored.  Chiropractic was not born on back pain; it was born on restoring [...]

Do you really want to get well?

I have observed that there are two kinds of patients. The first kind is the patient who wants to just feel good. The second kind wants to perform at their optimum potential throughout their life. If you feel that you are the first kind of patient, I am very concerned about you. Feeling good can range anywhere from taking an aspirin for a headache to injecting heroin for one’s next high. These examples though seemingly very different are actually very similar. I just want to feel good. (Preferably as fast as I can.) This is that person’s theme. Understand [...]

Become a Beacon of Health

Have you ever seen anyone who beams with health and vibrancy? Maybe one in a hundred these days.  I challenge you to become a Beacon of Health.The first step is to commit.  Find what motivates you to live.  Identify your life purpose or passion.  Get the feel of wanting to live forever.  When Jack Lalaine turned 93 he was interviewed on the Today Show.  He said “The problem with people is that they are worried about sickness and death.  I think about life!”  Once one identifies one’s passion for life, health becomes a given.Attaining health starts from how we think.  [...]

Dr. Henry Winsor: Chiropractic Research

As early as 1921, the medical profession validated chiropractic Henry Winsor, a medical doctor in Haverford , Pennsylvania asked the question: “Chiropractors claim that by adjusting one vertebra, they can relieve stomach troubles and ulcers; by adjusting another, menstrual cramps; and by adjusting others conditions such as kidney diseases, constipation, heart disease, thyroid conditions, and lung disease may resolve – but how?” Dr. Winsor decided to investigate this new science and art of healing- chiropractic. • DISSECTIONS After graduating from medical school, Dr. Winsor was inspired by chiropractic and osteopathic literature to experiment. He planned to dissect human and animal [...]

Everyone Needs a Chiropractor

HERE IS YOUR OPPORTUNITY From the son of a medical doctor When I grew up as a child I knew nothing about chiropractic.  My father was a respected and loved medical doctor in our community near Los Angeles.  I had all my vaccinations, took cold medications for the flu and frankly was a little neurotic about sickness and disease.  I had a one sided view of health.  The medical view was that there are diseases and symptoms that could just happen at any time and the doctors were the cures. My father had been a sick man for many [...]

History of Chiropractic

For 24 centuries most of the world has depended upon the doctor of medicine to cure health problems, yet the world is still sick and getting sicker. But more than forty million Americans have switched their thinking about doctors and each year an additional two million are switching. They are switching to Chiropractic. Recently, medicine became “scientific” with the appearance of the bacteriologist. Since then, the orthodox education of the medicine man has centered around the theory of infection and has been focused almost exclusively on the infectious diseases. Although some progress has been made in the fight against [...]

Innate Intelligence

THE INBORN INTELLIGENCE OF THE BODY Dr. B.J. Palmer (the developer of Chiropractic science) states: “Man has within his living being two intelligences – Innate and Educated.” One is an involuntary gift to his body complete at birth (it beats your heart, digests your food, oxygenates you blood, etc.). The other he voluntarily develops from nothing to what we hope is something. Innate Intelligence is a gift of God. Educated Intelligence is what you develop day by day, year by year. Innate Intelligence is greater than Educated Intelligence. The Chiropractic Profession, from its very inception, has taught of Innate [...]
