Real chiropractic care saved my life. If it wasn’t for chiropractic I literally might not be here today. After my injury we went to doctor after doctor looking for something, anything that might help my condition. They all said the same thing. “Your diagnosis is unresolved Bell’s Palsy. Most people get better, but you’ve had it for years, so it’s unlikely that your condition will improve. Here’s another medication to try to treat all of your symptoms.”
The headaches became worse. I began reacting to some of the medications. I developed rebound headaches that were so severe no longer needed an alarm clock to wake up in the morning because I would wake up screaming every day.
I had to be taken out of school and home-schooled because I couldn’t function for the first four hours of the day. My depression continued. I was so upset that this had happened to me. I would look into the mirror as a young man and literally will my face to move symmetrically and it just wouldn’t happen.
I was teased and bullies as a result of my looks. I began to push people away as defense mechanism. I unknowingly came to believe that if I didn’t let love in, I couldn’t be hurt. This strategy backfired and I found myself alone and angry and hurting physically, mentally and spiritually.
At one point, I even considered taking God’s greatest gift my own life. But God had different plans for my life and He carried me through all of that pain and suffering. Even when I thought I was all alone He never left me, He wrapped me up in His love protecting me from my circumstances and He lead me to a better way of living through chiropractic healthcare.
My medical doctors had done their job. They diagnosed my disease, they tested me for brain tumors, and they gave me pills to treat up my symptoms. The problem was for my condition the medicine didn’t help me heal in fact it hindered my healing potential. Because of the disease treatment approach to “healthcare”, I became fixated on my symptoms believing what I was being told; that I probably wouldn’t get better and I needed pills to cover up my symptoms.
I couldn’t look in the mirror without a negative thought. I hated being photographed. I was so uncomfortable in my own skin because of how I looked; I could hardly communicate with my family let alone everyone else.
It wasn’t until I began real chiropractic care that the power that made my body began to heal my body by removing the interference in my nerve system thereby restoring normal function from my brain to my body. After three months of chiropractic care and the life changing results I obtained, I knew at 16 years old what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.
It is important to understand that chiropractic is not the diagnosis and treatment of disease. The purpose of chiropractic is to find and reduce stress and interference to the nerve system, allowing the person to return to healthy function and an overall improved quality of life. Our current healthcare system is better described as a sick care system. If you are in need of crisis care intervention, traditional western medicine can save your life! We should be forever grateful for the advancements of modern medicine.
However, with the advancement of emergency medicine the pharmaceutical industry has taken over healthcare in the United States and the world. For a long time drug companies have attempted to convince people with crafty advertising, that drugs are the solution to their health issues.
In short, the message is simply, drugs make you healthy and you must take drugs. This premise is false and it is being rejected on a massive scale by a savvy health conscious parents like never before!
While drugs may be able to save your life in a crisis, drugs do not make us healthy. If drugs made us healthy the person taking the most drugs on a regular basis would be the healthiest person in the room and we know that is simply not the case.
Chiropractic is the largest non-pharmaceutical healing art in the world.
The primary goal of chiropractic care and the chiropractor is to remove interference in the nerve system allowing the individual to express their genetic health potential from the inside out.
The default state of the human body is health.
Health challenges arise as a normal reaction to environmental stress pulling the body into a defensive neurologic posture resulting in subluxation (a spinal misalignment). This can be observed with basic chiropractic examination and corrected with gentle chiropractic adjustment techniques with or without a cracking sensation.
If you or someone you know is experiencing a health challenge, especially when they’ve tried other options and those options have failed, we may be able to help.
