Symptoms, Disease, Diagnosis, E. Gads

I feel empathy for the general public when all they hear about is the above. Every symptom, every bump, every hint of a change in digestion, elimination, ect., could be cancer, heart disease, arthritis, or any one of the multitude of  diseases known to man. Run to your doctor. Have it diagnosed with blood tests, x-rays, cat scan MRI, biopsy, and the list goes on. I don’t know about you, but I would go crazy constantly being paranoid about disease and diagnosis. Stop! There is the greatest doctor on the planet constantly recreating abnormal organ and tissue cells into [...]


The First Subluxation

As a seasoned Escondido chiropractor, I believe that the first subluxation is the most important and yet the most neglected. The first subluxation usually occurs at birth since over 90% of the United States populace was born in an unnatural environment. Right from our first breath the vital life energy that flows from our brains down through the spinal cord and out to every cell is being choked off by vertebral subluxations caused by forceful birthing procedures. Abraham Towbin, M.D., a Pathologist at Boston University says in his paper on brain stem injuries, that after autopsy of unexplained crib [...]


This Inner Power Speaks

By Dr. Raymond Rickards Proud to be a chiropractic patient The original scientist and developer of chiropractic was B.J. Palmer.  From 1912 to 1962 he wrote 37 volumes on health, research and philosophy.  His friends and contemporaries were Thomas Edison, President Harry Truman, Ronald Reagan and many other dignitaries.  I believe he is one of our great American heroes.  In his book Volume 22 Chapter 11 he writes… THIS INNER POWER SPEAKS WE CHIROPRACTORS work with the subtle substance of the soul. We release the prisoned impulse, the tiny rivulet of force that emanates from the mind and flows [...]


Wellness Wheel

Life is all about Nature’s Laws.  Take for example a plant which is wilting or turning yellow.  Would you rush off and take your plant to a doctor of botany to have it diagnosed, then have the disease treated?  I don’t think so.  More likely one would check the water, the soil and the sunshine.  Too little or too much of any of the above requirements will create a sick plant.  Balance the laws of nature (water, soil, sunshine) and miraculously that plant bounces back and heals. We are no different.  We are just a more complex organism; therefore, [...]


What Happens When You Are Holding Your Adjustment?

When you are holding your adjustment GREAT things start happening!  Healing kicks in to a degree that was not possible prior to the adjustment made by your chiropractor in Escondido.  Everyone has the ability to heal.  Healing is the continuous replacement of old dying body cells with new healthy cells.  The most current research as reported by Deepok Chopra M.D. states that our body replaces itself every one to two years with the exception of the nerve cells. The replacement process is powered by the force of life that travels through the spinal cord and its nerves.  It is [...]


What’s the Difference?

Everyone needs an Escondido chiropractor.  But what is chiropractic?  Is it a back remedy, a pain relief care, a therapy? The brand of chiropractic offered to my patients is the type of chiropractic that put the profession on the map. Symptom chasing with general manipulation or physiotherapy is not chiropractic. In the early 1930’s through the mid 1950’s our profession was born from the specific correction of the upper neck, not cracking the back.  Twenty years of research using x-ray motion studies, thermography, electromyography and dissection studies demonstrated that the only place in the spine when misaligned that could [...]


Why Do Children Need to be Checked?

Babies need chiropractic therapy in Escondido, too. Here's why. The atlas and axis are the technical names of the upper two vertebrae in the neck.  The top vertebra is called the atlas.  Just as the Greek god, Atlas, held the world, the atlas of our spine holds the head.  The axis gets its name from the axis of the Earth, since seventy-percent of the rotation of the head occurs at the axis vertebra.  Take into account the weight of the head at eight to ten pounds and that these two top vertebrae are held to the head only by [...]


Why Maintenance

The nervous system is a two way street.  The brain tells the cells what to do then the cells report to the brain what has been done.  In a typical healing process, such as a skin abrasion, the ends of the nerves that are irritated by the abrasion send pain/damage signals to the brain, this is called the sensory path.  Immediately after the brain receives this injury information, specific brain cells send electrical signals, called the motor pathway, back down to the abrasion to create a perfect healing process. This same sensory and motor pathway to and fro, from [...]


You Are Magnificent

You have approximately 400 quadrillion cells working together as your body adapts and thrives in this environment. Our creator made us in his image. No architect, computer scientist, mathematician, chemist, physicist could even come close to constructing and organizing the miraculous function of our body. Imagine eating a greasy McDonald’s hamburger and the next day it has turned into a complex cell in your eyeball, liver, kidney or any other cell of your body. We are looking for miracles. Look at yourself.  Trust your doctor inside, the wisdom from within, the power that made us and heals us. I [...]


You’ve Got to Read This!

I have been practicing as an Escondido chiropractor for 23 years.  In those years I have had the opportunity to treat many patients with different conditions.  Some of those conditions are headaches, migraines, chronic pain, neck pain, shoulder/arm pain, whiplash from car accidents, backaches, ear infections, asthma, allergies, numbness in limbs, and athletic injuries.   After successfully relieving Dorothy for her severe low back condition she wrote this remarkable poem – remarkable because it expresses the fears and doubts that many new patients experience.  With her permission it goes like this: “Chiropractic,” of course! The pain in my back, how [...]


Your Gift of Health

Do you believe we are supposed to heal? If you cut yourself, break a bone, eat something bad, or get the flu… what are your chances of healing? Pretty darn good, in fact, I would say close to 100% of the time. The human internal design and our divine spark of life which makes this design functional is truly beyond our comprehension. Think about having the flu. Usually one has a period of fatigue, a period of fever, and a period of coughing up mucus. The first stage of fatigue we are forced to rest; the second stage of fever [...]


What is the Blair Technique?

The Blair chiropractic technique is a specific system of analyzing and adjusting the upper cervical vertebrae of the spinal column. Special attention is given to the first two cervical vertebrae, the atlas and axis, as they are the most freely movable vertebrae in the spinal column and the ones most commonly misaligned. When these vertebrae misalign and cause interference with the brain stem and spinal cord as they exit through the floor of the skull and in the neural canal, dis-ease is the result. After many years of research and study of all the techniques that were developing at [...]


Achieving Optimum Health is Within Our Control

For those of you who feel your health is not optimum or going down the tubes, perk up and listen. To gain control of one’s health one must adopt a whole different attitude toward disease and sickness. Too many of us feel that symptoms are a part of life. You feel it is normal to have headaches, joint pains, constipation, indigestion, menstrual cramps, allergies, etc… Unfortunately we get locked into the sickness look of life by the media, drug advertisements and what doctors often tell patients. Just the other day I head a drug commercial say “For your everyday [...]
