WELLNESS IS THE RESULT OF A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE
AND OPTIMAL ENERGY FLOW
Besides eating, sleeping, relaxing and exercising for wellness, visiting a doctor when you feel well is a growing trend!
We've learned to associate being sick with obvious symptoms, but many health problems result from lifestyle choices that sabotage wellness over time.
Flow of Vital Energy
Wellness is based upon a free-flowing nervous and acupuncture meridian system. People visit our practice to make sure all organs and tissues have an uninterrupted nerve and vital energy supply, to prevent bigger problems.
Chiropractic & Acupuncture - A Winning Wellness Combination
True health is optimum physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of symptoms. A healthy lifestyle combined with an unimpeded nervous system and optimum energy flow are a winning combination toward wellness.
CHIROPRACTIC WELLNESS ADJUSTMENTS ARE FOR BETTER
BRAIN-BODY COMMUNICATION AND ENERGY FLOW, NOT JUST PAIN!
What Are SubluxatIons?
Subluxations are bones out of place, pinchng nerves, causing malfunction. They are the result of vertebrae moving incorrectly and misaligning, interfering with communication along nerve pathways between brain and body.
A subluxation is a reaction to stress. Muscles spasm. Vertebrae jam. Nerves are obstructed. This disturbs the regulation and control of your body by distorting nerve communication and energy flow between brain, body, cells and organs.
Many health problems beyond neck, back and headache pain can be caused by underlying distorted nerve communications. For example, nerve interference between your brain and stomach: stomach problems.
Your nervous system controls every cell, tissue, organ and system of your body. Nerve signals travel through your spinal cord housed by your spinal column. So having a subluxation-free spine is essential for wellness enhancement.
Chiropractic Examinations and Adjustments
Only a chiropractic examination can reveal subluxations. And only chiropractic adjustments can naturally minimize their impact on your nervous system and vital energy flow. Chiropractic adjustments improve spinal motion, decrease nerve interference, and assist in restoring health.
What’s a Chiropractic Adjustment Like?
Sometimes a gentle, specific, precise thrust is used. Or an adjusting instrument accurately delivers the correct movement. Or a steady, gradual pressure is utilized. One or more areas may be adjusted. Sometimes a harmless popping sound is heard!
Adjustments Feel Great
Most patients describe a feeling of positive release, lightness, comfort, and well-being. Imagine, if the adjustment experience were unpleasant, our patients would not return and they often do!
Kids from 0 to 102 and even patients who have had back surgery can get adjusted. Adjustments are customized extremely gentle, to your health issue, age, and body type.
GOT STRESS? TIME TO REBOOT YOUR NERVOUS SYSTEM!
There are 3 types of stress:
Bad posture, repetitive motions, slips and trips, car accidents, and even being born are physical stresses.
Impossible work deadlines, grieving, depression, frustration, or a sense of powerlessness are common forms of stressful emotions.
Viruses, chemicals, drugs, preservatives, tobacco, alcohol, pollen and other substances can directly impact our immune system, nerves, muscles and overall health.
Pain and Symptoms Pale, Compared to Malfunction
For an average 155 lbs. person, the nervous system controls and coordinates the nearly 37.2 trillion cells, and all of the organs and systems in your body. The brain processes 400 billion bits of information per second. The human body sends 11 million bits per second to the brain for processing, The conscious mind processes an insignificant 50 bits per second including pain and symptom awareness. So a whole lot more than pain and symptoms is going on behind the scenes, running every facet of your health and wellness.
The Chiropractic Adjustment Reboot - Ctrl Alt Del
The human nervous system then, can be likened to an incredible bio-computer network. The brain is the server. The spinal cord is the primary cable. The bones of the spinal column, sacrum, and coccyx protect the spinal cord and allow 31 pairs of smaller cables called spinal nerves to enter and exit left and right between the vertebrae, connecting to every cell and organ. Each atom, cell and organ is a computer as well! Each level of the spine is a workstation. All components large and small mirror and communicate with each other.
When stress builds up...
muscles tighten and lock up the spine at specific levels interfering with brain-body communication. This is like a computer workstation "hanging" or "freezing". You don't feel it. Pain or symptoms are not necessarily an indicator. Most of the nerves are automatic or autonomic. Thus, you may experience a nerve jam at the stomach level as a stomach malfunction rather than pain.
Chiropractic adjustments are a reboot! To live a wellness lifestyle, periodic adjustments are advised to refresh the nervous system and keep your bio-network working well, not only when you are in pain or have symptoms!
ACUPUNCTURE & ACUPRESSURE FOR THE FLOW OF VITAL ENERGY
Strategic Pressure Points
Acupuncture and Acupressure involve stimulating strategic points on your body, most commonly used to treat pain, promote overall wellness, and manage stress.
How Does it Work?
Acupuncture and Acupressure balance and improve the flow of vital energy. Vital energy flows throughout your body in twelve pairs of pathways known as meridians. Acupressure, which is a gentle massage of specific points along these meridians, or Acupuncture, which is the gentle insertion of fine needles into the points, help your energy to flow and re-balance. These treatments also stimulate nerves, muscles and connective tissues, and enhance your body's production of innate natural pain relievers.
MEDIHERB - PROFESSIONAL QUALITY HERBAL SUPPLEMENTS
Co-founded in 1986 by Professor Kerry Bone, MediHerb is the first choice for health care professionals in herbal products in the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, South Africa and the United Kingdom.
Over 20 Naturopaths within MediHerb
A key part of MediHerb’s success is that it recognizes the importance of having health care professionals in key areas of the organization - over 20 naturopaths and master herbalists have roles within new product development, technical writing, laboratory, clinical support and senior management. These health care professionals, including Kerry Bone, continue to see patients in their own clinics every week keeping them in touch with current health issues. This means that we know from our own hands-on experience how the MediHerb products work and can provide health care professionals and their patients with guidance and education.
Total Commitment to Quality
The philosopher and teacher Rudolf Steiner once said, "For every human illness, somewhere in the world there exists a plant which is the cure. I believe that there is a healing potential locked inside plants which is integral with their evolution, just as it is part of human evolution to learn to tap this wonderful gift of Nature."
In the words of MediHerb's Co-Founder, Professor Kerry Bone: "Our passion at MediHerb is to unlock the healing power of plants by combining the time-honored wisdom of traditional knowledge with sound clinical experience and the rigor of scientific research. This quest can only be attained by the total commitment to quality and continuous improvement, which permeates every aspect of our endeavors."
MediHerb's commitment to quality is evidenced in every aspect of our business, from the rigorous sourcing and testing of herbs and the in-depth research and development of herb active constituents and therapeutic applications, to the development of manufacturing and extraction processes that have revolutionized the herbal products industry. For over 25 years, MediHerb has not only demonstrated an unwavering commitment to quality in herbal products, we have redefined it. We believe that our approach to quality sets a standard for herbal products that is unsurpassed in the world today.
Quality Issues with Herbs
Working with herbs to consistently manufacture high quality products is not easy as plants are naturally complex and the quality of a finished product can vary enormously, presenting MediHerb with continual challenges. These challenges are numerous, and include the inherent biological and chemical variability of herbs, the influences on quality of growing, harvesting, drying and storage, extraction of the herb, stability and the ultimate problem of defining quality in a meaningful way.
Put simply not all herbal products are the same
Not all herbs contain the same levels of active constituents. Not all herbs are grown or harvested or dried or stored in the same way. Not all herb growers', suppliers', or manufacturers' standards are the same and not all methods to determine quality are the same.
