The Cause & Solution for Ear Infections

Ear infections are an epidemic in our society. 90% of children will experience ear infections before they are school age. Most children experience two to three episodes per year. There is an estimated 10 million new cases per year. Despite extensive medical intervention, children’s ear infection rates continue to soar. An estimated $3.4 billion is spent every year for medications and surgeries. A study published in Canadian Family Physician stated that 97.7% of American children diagnosed with ear infections were given antibiotics but there was only a “definite need for antibiotics in only 5-10% of those cases!”Happy Babies (4)

Rate of ear infections soaring and medical science has failed to find an answer. The reason why they have failed is because the cause of ear infections is not micro-organisms. The real cause is an abnormally lowered immune response in the inner ear.

There is a solution to the problem. The real solution lies in locating the cause of the lowered immune response in the ear. A leading German authority, Dr. Gutmann, found 800 of 1000 (80%) infants checked during the first month of life had Blocked Atlantal Nerve Syndrome directly related to birth trauma. Blocked Atlantal Nerve Syndrome interferes with the nerve impulses in the upper neck area, lowers immune resistance and leave the child vulnerable to ear, nose and throat infections.

The cause of Blocked Atlantal Nerve Syndrome is the modern day birth process. The stress that is placed on the infant’s neck during the normal birthing process causes trauma to the upper cervical spine.

How do you fix Blocked Atlantal Nerve Syndrome? Only a trained Chiropractor qualified to remove the interference with a specific adjustment to the Atlantal Nerve. A chiropractic evaluation is of “decisive importance” and Chiropractic care can often bring about amazingly successful results.

“Birth Trauma at my age?”

A Patient asked me a typical question the other day. “What caused my neck problem?” He was shocked to discover that the reasons why many individuals suffer from neurological problems and health challenges as adults are from subluxations that were caused during the birth process. Signs and symptoms typically don’t show up until later in life, yet rob the individual of their health, vitality and wellness. Dr. Godfrey Gutman, medical researcher, discovered that more than 80% of the infants that he examined shortly after birth were suffering from injuries to the cervical spine (the neck), causing all types of health problems.

“If a child is subluxated at birth, that child’s perception of the world is distorted and their ability to respond to the world is compromised. This has severe implications throughout the life of that child! We are dealing with the single most devastating event in most individuals’ lives, it’s really that important. Every child should be checked for subluxations as soon as possible after birth.” Dr. Christopher Kent.

Dr. Towbin, of the Harvard Medical School’s pathology department, found that “the birth process, even under optimal conditions is potentially a traumatic, crippling event. Spinal cord annewbornd brain stem injuries occur often during the process of birth but frequently escape diagnosis.” As a chiropractor, we would much rather examine and adjust every newborn than to have to deal with a lifetime of health problems. We would rather adjust the newborn than wait 26 years and learn that the young person developed gall bladder disease in the areas where the nerve tissue was injured and compromised since birth.

At the Rockefeller Institute, Dr. Arpad DeNagy determined that interference to the nervous system, due to spinal stress, resulted in serious damage within a short period of time. He recommends that stabilizing biomechanical care should begin as soon after birth as possible. Furthermore, he indicated that this spinal stress tragedy may take sixty years to develop fully! “The entire birth process, from conception and pregnancy to delivery and post-delivery, can lay the foundation for later mental and physical disease. We now know that the trauma surrounding the birth process is engraved as imprints in the developing nervous system of the fetus and newborn.” Arthur Janov, Ph.D.

Has Your Birth Process Caused You An Early Demise?

A Boston University pathologist demonstrated that there is severe spinal damage to the infant as a result of the “usual” birth process. “The real cause of our demise is not diseases, but the spinal stress that happens at birth. This robs us of our innate potential for a very long, very healthy, and very happy life.” “The child will have less than optimal physical, mental, and social well-being. The birth damaged child carries the seeds of premature death with him at all times.” Studies at Columbia University have shown that the average child loses seventy percent of his biological potential by the age of seventeen. Traumatic birth syndrome, whether it results in immediate symptoms or diminishes your human potential over the course of yourbaby lifetime must be dealt with immediately.

“I didn’t tell you this, but…”

Those who see chiropractic as merely a treatment for headaches and back pain overlook the more significant role that chiropractic can play in overall health. Since we focus on the integrity of your nervous system, and your nervous system controls every bodily function, chiropractic care has often helped resolve a variety of non-spinal health problems.

Let’s say someone has high blood pressure. At first glance it appears to be a circulatory problem. But not so fast!

It’s the brain that controls and regulates every bodily function via nerve messages sent back and forth over the spinal cord. Nerve interference along the spine can produce a variety of health problems. Correct the spinal problem and other problems often improve.

Does that make chiropractic a treatment for high blood pressure? Of course not. The intent of chiropractic care is to restore the function to a compromised nervous system. Instead of ‘side effects’ the happy result are ‘positive effects.’

Top 5 Benefits of Chiropractic

Are There Any Benefits of Chiropractic Care That You May Not Know About?

There are a number of different reasons why patients decide to seek out chiropractic care. Whether you are getting adjusted for headaches, low back pain, or anything in between, there are a number of ways that spinal adjustments can help your overall health. When you take care of your nervous system, your entire body can benefit. This is why there are so many great benefits of chiropractic care that the average person doesn’t even know about. Here are some of the best benefits of chiropractic care that could help improve your life.

1. Relieve Stress: When your nervous system is interfered with, your spinal bones are misaligned and your muscles are imbalanced, chances are your entire body will feel out of line. This can cause a great deal of mental and physical stress on your body. Once you have been balanced, your body will immediately feel less tense, and this message of relaxation will also go straight to the brain.

2. Improve Posture: Over time, regular chiropractic adjustments can help align tilting and abnormal curves in your spine and help you improve your posture. This can be particularly beneficial when it comes to the curve in your neck. Many people develop neck issues younger than ever, due to their constant position sitting in front of a computer screen or hunched over a phone.

3. Improve Your Mood: When you get adjusted, you are balancing your body’s entire system. This includes your body chemistry. This means that those who are suffering from certain chemical imbalances will often benefit from chiropractic care. Many people dealing with depression can see an Chiropractic_Adjustmentimprovement in their mood with regular chiropractic care. Many individuals with ADHD have also seen great benefits with regular adjustments.

4. Improve Your Immune System: When you get adjusted, your chiropractor is removing subluxations that are preventing your nervous system from working properly. Keeping your nervous system working properly keeps your immune system working properly, meaning your immune system will start working better and you will start recovering from illnesses faster.

5. Improve Your Sleep: Many sleep problems are related to pain, stress and body aches and imbalances in the nervous system. Taking care of these issues with regular chiropractic care can help any individual improve their sleep quality and get the rest they need every night.

Regular chiropractic care can provide these benefits and more by removing interference to your nervous system allowing your body to work a peak performance.

21 ½ minutes = 5 years

Is It Possible to Increase Your Lifespan?

21 ½ minutes = 5 years? Sorry Doc, but the math doesn’t add up. Maybe we should shed some light on this concept. According to a study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, adults who include at least 150 minutes of physical activity in their routines each week (that’s 22 ½ minutes a day) live longer than those who don’t.
Elliptical-800x449The researchers used data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, the National Health Interview Study mortality linkage, and U.S. Life Tables to estimate and compare the life expectancy at each age for adults who were inactive, somewhat-active and active. “Active” was defined as doing at least 150 minutes of moderate activity per week. They found that participants were estimated to gain as little as 2 years and as much as 5.5 potential years of life through moderate exercise alone.

Is There Proof That Exercise Lengthens Life Span?

Telomeres are the protective caps at the ends of chromosomes that protect your DNA and genetic information. Telomeres are like the plastic caps on the end of yotelomeres-image-nasaur shoelaces that protect the laces from becoming frayed. Shorter telomeres have been linked in previous research with cell aging and increased risks of age-related diseases like cancer and dementia, as well as premature death. In a study by Dr. Dean Ornish, researchers looked at 35 men with prostate cancer. 10 of those men were put on a strict lifestyle modification including moderate exercise, a plant-based diet, and yoga. Researchers found that telomere length actually increased among the men who were assigned to undergo the lifestyle intervention by an average of 10 percent. This is the first study to show that humans have the ability to lengthen their lifespan by exercise and diet.

Inborn Wisdom

Is There an Inborn Wisdom of the Body?

A frog sits on a lily pad and eats flies all day. A baby knows how to suck its thumb even before its born. A seed sprouts, the roots grow down into the earth while the stem and leaves grow up towards the sun. How do they know how to do that?

frog2Chiropractors have a unique understanding of life and health. Health is more than how you feel, it’s how you function and express yourself. Health is a state in which your body can express 100% of your human potential, 100% of your human spirit, and where your cells, tissues, organs, glands and systems are functioning 100%, 100% of the time.

When the Webster’s Unabridged Dictionary is examined do we question whether it was created by intelligence or whether it was a random event such as an explosion in a print shop? Of course not, the organization is much too complex to be a random event. Just the same as we observe the natural world around us we see complex design and order in our universe. There is little question that it was designed and is maintained by intelligence superior to our own human intelligence. We call it Universal Intelligence. It is everywhere and in everything, even in plants, frogs and human beings. It is what gives us our instincts, and our information to survive, to thrive and to adapt in this ever-changing world.

This inborn wisdom is smarter than all the scientists and doctors in the world. For example, this intelligence can take two cells and in 280 days create an infant child whether the mother is a PhD or a high school dropout. All the scientific minds in the world have been unable to create a living cell; yet this intelligence is able to create a whole body from the peanut butter and jelly sandwiches that a mother eats.

What does one the world’s most famous doctors say about our inborn intelligence?

Have you ever heard of Deepak Chopra, M.D.? He is one of the most well-known authors and doctors in the health care field today. He says, “intelligence is present everywhere in our bodies… our own inborn intelligence is far superior to anything that we can substitute from the outside.”

So What… What Does This Mean to Us?

It means simply that the greatest doctor in the world may already be within us. This inborn wisdom knows what to do for your best welfare all of the time. Think about it, what heals? Do salves, ointments, Band-Aids, antibiotics or other drugs heal anything? Of course not. Life is what heals… and it is the chiropractor that removes interference to your body’s communication system allowing life force to express itself in every cell of your body.

The Truth about Chiropractic

What Is the Truth About Chiropractic?

If you are like the general public, you would believe that chiropractic is a natural treatment for back pain or neck pain or headaches or some other common condition. Here’s something that may shock you… chiropractic, when used properly, has nothing to do with backaches and it has nothing to with any other condition.

Here’s the truth:
1. Chiropractic is more than you think it is.
2. People get well from various medical conditions under chiropractic care and going to a chiropractor will help you recover from those problems.
3. If someone is using chiropractic for back pain alone, they are wasting 98% of its real value.

Chiropractic deals with human performance. Every level of human performance is controlled by body chemistry. Think about it… you cannot get up in the morning and run for a bus without first changing your body chemistry. The body pumps adrenaline into your bloodstream to enable you to increase performance. It takes chemicals to fall asleep at night and if your body is not producing a sufficient quantity of those chemicals all the time you will suffer from periodic insomnia. If someone takes a chemical into their body such as coffee, they can upset their chemical balance and have the same result (insomnia). People take chemicals to go to sleep and then have a difficult time waking up because the body is not producing a sufficient quantity to overcome the disturbance to its chemistry.

There are hundreds of different carcinogens,cancer-producing chemicals and drugs in the food we eat, the air we breathe and the water we drink. How do we manage to survive? We survive by making the right chemicals. We make chemicals from the foods we eat. While food is important, it is the chemicals our body makes (stomach acid, enzymes and bile for example) that determines whether our foods have any nutritional value for us. It’s been said “you are what you eat” but that’s not really true. You are what your body is able to extract from what you eat.ragweed-800x533

Take the example of hay fever. Some people believe that ragweed pollen can cause hay fever. When the pollen is in the air the body responds by making the chemical histamine. If there is too much histamine, hay fever symptoms will occur. But, if ragweed pollen caused hay fever, then we’d all have hay fever.

How Do Body Chemistry and Human Performance Become Disrupted?

How does chiropractic relate to our body chemistry? There are billions of cells in the body and every one of them are little chemical factories. They have to be controlled by a master control system. That system is the nervous system and that system is protected by the skull and spinal bones.

How do the cells, glands and organs that produce chemicals know that a particular chemical is needed in a distant part of the body? All parts of the body are constantly feeding information concerning their status and their needs to the brain and the brain, in turn, is sending out messages to the chemical factories to respond to the body’s needs.FullSizeRender (1)

When the body has more stress than it is able to adapt to… physical injury, overuse or fatigue; chemical insults like pollution, toxins, drugs, a poor diet; or emotional stress like anxiety, depression, loss of loved ones, overwork, or emotional trauma, the nervous system can become overwhelmed. The result is muscle contraction for fight or flight… but if the stresses are chronic then chronic muscle contractions can move the spinal bone. If misaligned enough, the position of the bone will cause irritation of the nerve. This is called a subluxation. The irritation of the spinal nerves disrupts communication to the organs and glands. This results in improper gland function and imbalanced body chemistry.

Normal-vertebraSmall changes in body chemistry can disrupt our ability to adjust to changes in our environment. We may be unable to get the maximum benefit from the food we eat. If your body chemistry is not working as it should, all the good food in the world will not help you. Hormonal cycles may become unbalanced. Sleep can become disturbed. There may be small changes in strength, coordination, balance, reaction time, or any other area of performance. Imbalanced body chemistry decreases human performance.

What Does Chiropractic Do?

When a chiropractic adjustment is given the proper position of the spinal bone is restored. This removes the interference to the nerve. When nerve control is restored normal gland function returns. Proper gland production balances body chemistry with increases human performance.Chiropractor-Corona

So, chiropractic is not necessarily about helping stiff necks and mending sore backs. A chiropractic adjustment may not make your symptoms go away but it is not meant to. An adjustment opens up the life channels of your body and improves your overall life and it does that every time in every body. In other words, chiropractic is not about your pains or your conditions and diseases, it is about your life.

How Often Should a Person See Their Chiropractor?

What about the damage done to the body when there are subluxations that go uncorrected? The damage done to the body’s overall ability to be healthy is cumulative. If you get adjusted the day after you are subluxated that is not too bad, a month later, that is not too good, thirty years later some of the damage may be permanent. For the maximum benefits of chiropractic care, begin as early in life as you possibly can and do it for a lifetime. If you are new to chiropractic you have probably wondered why there are so many children in your chiropractor’s office… now you know. The younger you begin and the more frequently you see your chiropractor the better your health and performance will be. On your next visit ask your chiropractor how often he or she is checked by their own chiropractor… you’ll be surprised to find that they seldom go longer than 7 days without a chiropractic checkup.
