For those of you who have been to our office in the past few weeks, you may have noticed or heard that half of our clinic is under repair. Yes, unfortunately, our wonderful city workers busted a line and forced a water and sewage back up, flooding half of our clinic. Sorry about the mess, but it does represent some ideas I’m excited to share with you as it pertains to health.
While my staff worked quickly to get professionals out to do the obvious, stop the leak, clean up and dry, call the insurance company for damages equipment, etc…..there were about 6 hours where they needed to work in a 1200 square foot office with a horrific smell. I’m sure you can guess as to why.
If you are newer to my office or posts, you may not know that we constantly teach that GERMS DO NOT CA– USE DISEASE in and of themselves, which is what most of the traditional medical community would have you believe. You know, people are just innocent victims of some virus, bacteria, fungus, etc…and it’s up to the doctor to find it and destroy it with their medicine; by no other means could you possibly be healthy. This is why so many smart people still line up to get their flu shots every year, sadly.
You see, if that theory were actually true, then everyone in my office would have been sick, because literally we had sewage flooding our floors. Yet, no one is sick, no drugs or shots were needed to defend us, because our innate intelligence was working fine on its own. We were not lucky. All of us, like many of you who come to our clinic, choose to have excellent tone and immunity by getting regular adjustments to ease the increased tone that daily stress increased in our body, eat clean, get great sleep, stay hydrated, exercise regularly, have proper posture, and choose to alleviate stressful life circumstances.
Traditional medical thinking will have you believe that this type of proactive living has little significance when posed with a serious “BUG” threat. What a perfect business model. The patient has to do nothing and the doctor will take care of everything once you get sick.
This is why my kids know they don’t need a tub of antibacterial gel every time they have a birthday party at some local play house. Also, without a little challenge every now and then, you don’t get better. That goes for your brain, parenting, marriage, muscles, and yes….your immune system. Step out of the common fear elevator and work with your body, not against it.
Fortunately, because of the flooding, we now have new carpet in our :)
Also, BIG thanks to Val, Ana, and Dr. Ray, as they handled all of this stress while I was in Florida with the kids. I love and appreciate these guys!
In a time where our culture seems to embrace the organic and natural way, it is disturbing to see the percentage of non-natural births increase every year in the United States. This is not meant to make someone feel bad if you needed an intervention like a c section, but the WHO (World Health Organization) […]
1) Shoulder/Neck sprain /strain While “kipping” is not the cause of all of the time, it is a factor for most cross-fit gym goers. While kipping is great for gymnastic movement, coordination, and getting extra reps in when the classic strict pull up would not work, the “kip” can easily lead to shoulder/neck strain/sprain, and […]
