I Think My Eyesight is Improving!

November 21, 2011

Normally I go to the Eye Doctor about every two years because my eyesight has gotten slightly worse, I need a new prescription, and a new pair of glasses.  About a month ago I decided that I wasn’t going to go because I just simply didn’t feel I needed too and my glasses were holding up.  Over the last few weeks my eyes have been bothering me and it hit me like a truck; I think my eyesight has improved. So needless to say I am going to see Dr. Silverstein in December to confirm this innate feeling.

The question becomes what have I done differently over the last few years to see this possible improvement.  Only two things have changed; 1. a diet rich in superfoods in my morning shake and 2. coming to to end of a course of NAET with Dr. Laura Brayton to naturally help eliminate my seasonal allergies.  Let me elaborate of these two a little!

1. After reading David Wolfe’s book Superfoods early in 2011 I began to add these foods to my morning shakes.  Some of these foods include; raw cacao, hemp seeds, goji berries, aloe, maca, and chia seeds to name a few.  I’ve also taken a fair amount of astaxanthin which is a superstrong antioxidant a the new nutritional darling! I’ve also gotten a constant and consistent source of raw milk thanks to my friend Vito Forte the owner of the Cooper Mine Pub!

2. I have suffered from seasonal allergies for 20 years.  They have gotten better over the years with Chiropractic Care and specific nutrients specifically cultured foods! I wanted to eliminate them permanently so I decided to do a course of NAET with Dr. Brayton a Chiropractor in Hoboken and a very dear friend! I am nearly done with the course of care and my allergies are certainly better and maybe just maybe helped my eyesight as well!

So I am going to confirm this next month!  Stay tuned!

Any questions or comments please do!

Chiropractic a $2,750,000,000 Healthcare Savings!

Chiropractic a $2,750,000,000 Healthcare Savings!

Thanks to the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress and a recent half page article in the Wall Street Journal this incredible Healthcare Savings has been brought to light!

Here is a summary:

Spinal Adjustments were proven to be just as effective as microdiskectomy (surgery) for patients experiencing sciatica secondary to lumbar disk herniation!

More than 200,000 microdiskectomies are performed annually in the US, at a direct cost of $5 billion, or $250,000 per procedure.  If cost is assumed at $100 per Chiropractic visit, there is a direct, total savings of $22,900 per adjustment patient. System wide, this could save $2.75 billion dollars annually.

To look more closely at these studies please visit: www.foundation4chiroeducation.com

These potential savings only touch the tip of what is possible with regular consistent specific Chiropractic Care!

I caution you to not only look at Chiropractic as a “treatment” for low back pain; this just happens to be an easy way to look at the enormous savings possible.

Chiropractic addresses what is right in you, the inborn innate intelligence that governs all aspects of you, including your HEALTH!

When the tension is removed from your Nervous System and Spinal Column by a specific Chiropractic Adjustment your brain communicates properly with all the cells in your body and proper function returns.  Proper function means different things for different people; no headaches, increased energy, better sleep, being able to lift your grandchild, increased athletic performance, etc….

Comments and Questions are welcome!

What does Cholesterol have to do with Chiropractic?

November 14, 2011

What does Cholesterol have to do with Chiropractic?

A government panel suggests screening kids in grade school as early as age 9 for high cholesterol. What angle should we take, hmmm!  Let’s look at high cholesterol itself.  High cholesterol is merely a symptom of an unhealthy circulatory system. If you eat processed foods, ingest an excess of trans fatty acids, a lack of omega 3 fatty acids, and do not exercise among other things it is likely over time that your cholesterol levels will raise into the supposed unhealthy range above 200! The excess cholesterol in your blood is the innate wisdom of your body trying to protect itself from the assault of your poor lifestyle choices. Cholesterol medications like Lipitor reduce your overall numbers but do not get to the real cause of the raised levels which is as mentioned above, poor lifestyle choices. So you reduce your overall cholesterol without changing your diet, exercising, or reducing your overall stress levels, a recipe for disaster!

Let’s compare this to a common Chiropractic case in any Chiropractor’s office.  A new patient comes into the office with awful migraine headaches.  She/he goes to the medical doctor and he gives this person a medication or two, maybe suggests a CT-Scan of the brain and sends this person on their way; once again treating the symptom of tremendous pain rather than getting to the cause of the headache.  The cause of the headache is likely a vertebral subluxation / misalignment in the cervical spine (neck) of this patient that is interfering with normal nerve flow causing the headache.  Remove the subluxation by a specific Chiropractic adjustment and teach the patient how not to recreate this situation and the headache is no longer a problem for this person. To summarize, both the pain of the headache and the raised cholesterol levels are both symptoms not the actual cause.  Remove the cause, poor lifestyle choices and vertebral subluxation, and eliminate the problem properly and correctly without having to introduce dangerous chemicals into the body of this patient.

What is the real underlying reason to screen grade school children?  I suspect it is to open up a whole new market for the drug companies and medical doctors to prescribe one of the biggest selling class of drugs of all time; statins!  Does anybody think for a second what this will do to our children! Cholesterol is a critical hormone that is needed by the body to create other hormones like testosterone. Not to mention we know that all statin drugs deplete the body of CoQ10 and critical nutrient for heart and muscle tissue as well as a potent antioxidant. The repercussions here are so vast I could write a novel.

Yes, I know a small percentage of people have hypercholesterolemia.  You might be able to persuade me to think this SMALL population should get tested.  This is the only people who may need to take a cholesterol lowering drug; all others can do this with proper lifestyle choices, including Chiropractic!

As an interesting side note there was just a case study in the Journal for Vertebral Subluxation Research, where a person’s cholesterol levels where reduced with specific Chiropractic care.  When a person’s nervous system is clear and tension is removed from the neuromuscular system of the human body all miracles are possible!

Getting back to the original question; what does Cholesterol have to Chiropractic? Other then the first two letters being the same it comes down to whether you choose to treat symptoms or to correct the cause of the problem.  It is my belief that correcting the cause is the only viable option when talking about the health of an individual! Removing the subluxation, the likely cause of the headache or low back pain is the same as reducing cholesterol through proper nutrition, exercise, and stress reduction.  Chiropractors by nature are and always have been Doctors of Cause!

Your health is your most valuable asset! Treat it so! Have your spine checked and adjusted on a regular basis and adjust your lifestyle appropriately to create the best you possible.

The Problem: Subluxation / The Solution: Specific Spinal Adjustment

November 11, 2011

What is spinal subluxation? Simply put, it is a spinal bone that has moved from its normal position causing irritation to a spinal nerve.  The effects can be devastating – beginning with loss of normal function that can also cause pain, numbness, and stiffness. It can even cause dysfunction of a specific organ or body part.  Without correction of a subluxation, the body is unable to function properly, has lower resistence, and less capacity for health and healing.

A specific spinal adjustment is the solution to this problem.  Only doctors of Chiropractic correct subluxations.  Exercise and diet play a role in health, however, THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE FOR A SPECIFIC SPINAL ADJUSTMENT. With the body working properly, it can function at 100%.  A body that is functioning at 100% will have greater ability to fight off disease, and will certainly have greater opportunity for life long health.  At the Family Chiropractic Center, the interference is removed and proper function is restored.

Chiropractic Care Contributes to Optimal Performance of Baseball World Series Champions 2011 St. Louis Cardinals and 2010 San Francisco Giants.

Chiropractic Care Contributes to Optimal Performance of Baseball World Series Champions 2011 St. Louis Cardinals and 2010 San Francisco Giants.

Cardinal pitcher Jason Motte advocates chiropractic care

CARMICHAEL, Calif. – Nov. 3, 2011 – As the St. Louis Cardinals celebrate their 11th World Series title and the San Francisco Giants relive their 2010 championship, the Foundation for Chiropracitc Progress points to the role of chiropractic care in promoting faster recoveries, reduced risk of injury and enhanced on-field performance. Chiropractic team doctors Ralph Filson, D.C. of the Cardinals, and Michael Gazdar, D.C. of the San Francisco Giants, explain that regular chiropractic care provides baseball players with proper spinal function and balance to reduce the risk of spine-related injuries, enhance recovery time and improve overall performance.

Dr. Filson, who began providing care to the players in 1990 through its then manager, Joe Torre, Major League Baseball (MLB) legend, says, “Chiropractic care is always available to players of the Cardinals and the visiting team, it is utilized by many. With chiropractic care, players report that they feel better and have better endurance. Body mechanics are significantly improved, enabling better pitching, hitting and throwing.”

In 2006, Dr. Filson was awarded a World Series ring for his role with the Cardinals, and was proud to play a similar role in the 2011 championship. He also treated David Eckstein, Most Valuable Player on the Cardinals 2006 World Series Team, citing the importance of chiropractic care in helping players to achieve optimal performance: “I am proud to have provided chiropractic care to the Cardinals for so many years, and gratified that chiropractic has contributed to the players’ optimal performance during every game. We are all excited about bringing home the 2011 World Series title.”

According to Dr. Gazdar, who began working with the San Francisco Giants in 2008, and was seen by millions celebrating at the pitcher’s mound with the players following the game-ending play that resulted in the Giants World Series title, “Chiropractic care was a significant factor in the San Francisco Giants 2010 victory. One of the Giants’ pitchers relied upon chiropractic adjustments for all of his pitching starts, and virtually every player benefited from chiropractic services.”

Both doctors express their enthusiasm for the inclusion of chiropractic care for virtually every team participating in professional sports, including golf, football, hockey, basketball and baseball.
