Freedom From Health “Care”

By | Benefits of Chiropractic | No Comments

Ready or not 2020 came in with a BANG and is moving full speed ahead! If you have not heard the wake-up call to take health matters into your own hands then this blog is for you.

 If we take time to look at the facts, we’re designed to be healthy. The immune system is meant to be compromised during certain times so it can then flourish in abundance, allowing the body to properly adapt and become even stronger.

Want to shift your health into overdrive and utilize what you were born with? Our starting point shall be the central nerve system (CNS). Everyone is born with one due to the fact that it makes everything in you. One would not exist without a CNS. Think of your CNS as the alpha and omega. If you want to sustain health and rely on the things that are naturally within you, then look no further!

Many would have you believe that health comes in the form of a syringe or a pill that has been chemically made. We actually live our lives through the central nerve system, every experience in life being processed and controlled via the CNS. This cannot be conjured up in a lab, it is not something you have to “take” externally. So, take personal responsibility and guard it well!

Specific Gonstead Chiropractic care is designed to keep you well enough long enough with a CNS free of dysfunction. Our care is designed to correct subluxations (misalignments within the spinal column creating dysfunction within the body) that inhibit one’s potential to fully express life. Our adjustments are accurate and designed with corrective forces that reduce subluxations allowing neural connections to flourish, enabling your body to ADAPT more effectively over life!

With 2020 in full effect we should realize we have to take care of our health due to what many of us already realize: no one is coming to save us! If you find yourself in a middle of a lake and want to get to shore, start rowing hard and fast to save yourself! Freedom from health care starts with personal responsibility and caring for the central nerve system because it is the most practical solution for anyone to obtain. We do not support dependency in any form! We do however support knowledge and prevention in the most probable of solutions!

How Long Till I Get Betta?

When it comes to the human body and the process of healing, we know that things have to take TIME. If you do not take the time to adequately heal then you never will “get betta”! Something that does not take time will be a waste of time, even more so when dealing with the framework of the human body.

Healing is a process that is interlaced and conducted via the central nerve system (CNS). Think of the CNS as the conduit or inter highway system that made every part of you and sustains that function on a daily basis. When a spinal nerve is impeded (due to a subluxation) of the flow of intelligence it is supposed to supply to the tissue cell it becomes adequately less than it should be. As a result, the body over TIME enters into a state of dis-ease because there is interference with the transmission of the body producing adaptive forces to keep you healthy! We understand that healing is generated through the smallest part of the makeup of the body, the tissue cell.

Did you know that tissue cells have a nerve supply? They must or we would cease to exist. We have a general understanding that cells take time and each one varies to regenerate based on our body’s needs. We have a general understanding of the “time frame” yet everyone’s resistance or needs tend to differ. For example, we know that bone cells take 8+ years to complete a cycle, red blood cells live for approximately 120 days, skin cells approximately 30 days, etc, etc. Notice the time frame.

When you begin the process of healing you must take it minute to minute, day to day, week to week, and so on. Small minor improvements will continue to increase when you take the TIME to do it right. Always have hope and keep the steady climb!

Saving Money On Your Health

By | ADHD, Benefits of Chiropractic, chiropractic adjustment, inflammation, kids chiropractic | No Comments

Saving money on your health makes sense, right? Fortunately, it’s nothing new. Not a ‘quick’ sale, gimmick, fad, or trend that someone is trying to sell you. In all honesty it really comes down to your intentions that you want to make into health forming habits. Now, it just so happens that we are health care professionals – Chiropractors. Our entire basis is the study of health and what causes people to LIVE.

Chiropractic is a philosophy, a science and an art of things NATURAL; a system of adjusting the segments of the spinal column by hand only, for the correction of the cause of dis-ease. What limits health, what causes the body to be in a state of dis-ease (which means your body is not at ease)? The answer is a vertebral subluxation. This is a misalignment within the spinal column that occludes the connection between your brain and body. This hinders the TISSUE cell from adapting to the stresses of life. The tissue cell being the building blocks of everything you do!

Saving money on your health starts and ends with your central nerve system (CNS). How come? If you do not take care of your CNS it’s pretty clear to say it will not take care of you. Ponder this thought process for a while. Take the word “allergy”. Interestingly enough that a 45 year old presents to a Chiropractic office that just “developed” an allergen. Yet they have been living their entire life “allergy” free? Safe to say that something compromised the integrity of their immune system thus rendering this person more stress vulnerable to symptoms occurring.

Now, one would say that nothing is promised. You can eat all your vegetables, workout everyday, have little no body fat, take care of your CNS and still have a heart attack or develop cancer. True. Your quality of life is how you make it. Chiropractic ensures that you CNS is optimal in every season of life.

Chiropractic is premiums small and dividends large. It is health insurance to the max. If you do not take care of your health now, you will have to pay for it later.  

Kids Chiropractic Office

By | ADHD, Allergies, Benefits of Chiropractic, chiropractic adjustment, Chiropractic Myths | No Comments

Why kids Chiropractic office? The more important question is- why would we not have an office with a focus on Kids and family? Our approach is not new and it is backed by science, more importantly though its backed by common sense. Becoming aware of making healthy choices for your kids is a process that leads to a fulfilling life for them.

Unfortunately, we have this misconception of something “new”. A newborn child is something “new”. A new vehicle that you buy and drive off the lot is new, looks new, drives new, and yet still along the way will need maintenance to ensure optimal function of those smooth, “new” mechanics. If you do not take care of the necessary precautions or maintenance of a machine it will in turn break down faster.

We have been indoctrinated that kids are “new” and nothing bad can happen to anything “new”. On the contrary. The human body is, and will always be, the first “machine” ever created. Think of it, in with good air and out with bad air. In with good food and out with bad food…etc, etc. Systems (ex. respiratory) of the body are set in place for a purpose to maintain and create health in its existence starting from the minute of birth.

The first system of the body that is created to MAKE all other systems and then regulate, control, and coordinate their actions is the central nerve system (CNS). With such an important infrastructure that the CNS has to maintain on a daily basis, wouldn’t it make sense to get “it” checked to ensure optimal function for a young developing kid?

A subluxation is a misalignment that occurs within the spinal column that disrupts the communication LINK between the brain and the body. And YES, it even happens in kids. It can even happen during the birthing process or during the first time you are breast feeding your child. We are not one to speculate on how the subluxation occurred, we are here to show awareness of what needs to happen. Chiropractic check-ups to ensure optimal development from within the body. A healthy spine is foundational key for a healthy CNS which equals a healthy child.

How Much Are You Worth?

By | Benefits of Chiropractic, chiropractic adjustment, immune system | No Comments

How much are you worth? What’s the criteria we are measuring? Your health. How much is your health worth to you? Invaluable should be the answer you are looking for. A sense of urgency is what keeps your health ESSENTIAL all the time. Not just during seasons of life when something “bad” happens like the COVID. Invest in your health on a daily basis and the outcomes will be reaped for the long-term.

How much is your health worth to you? Unfortunately we have raised a society where bad health is really expensive, and price tags begin to add up when we neglect our health. Especially during this season of our life and everyone being directly impacted by the happenings of our world.

If this season of life is your wake-up call, fantastic then! Use it to your advantage and begin a life of health. Start with your central nerve system. It controls and made every part of you. Sound like your worth enough now?

In the study of Chiropractic we cannot emphasize enough the concept of prevention. From the minute of conception to the minute of death your life is run and controlled via your master control system – the central nerve system. Chiropractic ensures optimal efficiency and coordination with the central nerve system by adjusting specific areas of interference.

When spinal imbalances occur, a subluxation (misalignment within the spine placing stress upon a single nerve) lowers the body’s adaptability threshold. Your bodies adaptability is referring to how you respond to stressors and how you are able to overcome health problems that arise.

Instead of waiting for things to happen, why not take the stance of being PRO-active. Be honest with yourself and own your health now instead of attempting to “get” it back later. An old adage of health is as such – ” Young man who spends his time to gather wealth will neglect his health, and later in life will spend his wealth to gather his health.” Own your health now and invest in what you were born with.

 

Stay True To Health – Staying Normal During These Times

By | ADHD, Allergies, Benefits of Chiropractic, immune system, inflammation | No Comments

Handshakes, high-fives, and hugs have all too quickly transitioned into “elbow bumps” and social distancing – which we totally respect. There is no denying that in this current situation is unpleasant. However we see this as an opportunity to flip the script, and see this as an opportunity to empower our community even more. No matter what is occurring – our health is our most valuable asset. Having an abundance of health means we can take care of those that matter most to us and simply get back to doing the things we love most.

So, what does being “Healthy” mean. Health isn’t found in blood pressure numbers, temperature ranges, or in prescription medication. Put simply, health is the body having the ability to respond correctly, accurately, and the ability to ADAPT to our ever-changing environment. Now in correlation with the hysteria of the Coronavirus, bugs find their way into those whom are already sick or mal-adaptive, not individuals with proper immune resiliency. BJ Palmer said it best, “If the ‘germ theory of disease’ were correct, there’d be no one living to believe it.” You can only be a host to a virus if your perfectly made neuroimmune response is not functioning well. We all touch the same door knobs, shopping carts, breathe the same air… why do some people get sick and others simply will not? It is all about how well you ADAPT to the environment around you. It’s as simple as that. This is at the foundational core of Chiropractic and its history as well as success.

This same principle and truth can be applied to an old adage about rats in a dump… If there was a huge pile of garbage and rats all over the smelly trash, what caused the infestation? Was it the rats that caused the dump to occur, or were the rats a result of a dump already there? Which in turn attracted the rats to the delicious pile of trash. The truth is germs are opportunists – looking for an easy meal or place to harbor. With an immune response that is less than optimal or weakened, rats will arrive. The same applies to our health and Nerve System response to whatever infectious antigens cross our paths. We are on a mission to keep this nation well, and it all starts with proper Nerve System adaption and maybe a solid high-five. It is more important now than ever to Get Checked.

Attacking Stress From Within

By | Benefits of Chiropractic | No Comments

The current situation in the world today is stressful. At Basler Family Chiropractic we are continuing to sustain our normal routine spinal check-ups. We have made modifications and updated standard operating procedures to keep up with guidelines. With the stress that builds up during this current situation it is our job to make sure your central nerve system is free of any interference and functioning to its optimal potential to enable your body to adapt appropriately during these times.

Chiropractic does not cure anything. The science of Chiropractic is not based upon a “cure” it is based solely on adaptability. Principle No. 24 The Limits Of Adaptation. Innate Intelligence adapts forces and matter for the body as long as it can do so without breaking a universal law, or Innate Intelligence is limited by the limitations of matter.

Attacking your stress from within happens through your central nerve system. Whether you believe it or not, every human experience you have is controlled, processed, and coordinated through your central nerve system.

When your stress begins to accumulate you begin to change the trajectory of your health from within. How so? Through your central nerve system which controls the tissue cell of every organ, gland, and muscles of your body. The top three hormones that change your outlook and breed more stress are:

·  Cortisol

·  Adrenaline

·  Noreprenephrine

The more you welcome stress the more you change your health and well-being. This changes your state of adaptability and will result in incoordination of your immune system and every system for that matter. It curves your bodies ability to adapt and respond in a timely healthy manner.

By focusing on the central nerve system the bodies autonomic nerve system is better able to coordinate and function. A large study included 520 subjects receiving a single Chiropractic adjustment, and 111 subjects receiving care for a period of four weeks. Consistent significant increased total power of HRV (heart rate variability) was reported. The authors stated that results signified a return of healthy autonomic nerve system coordination upon the Chiropractic adjustment of vertebral subluxation. (Sinnott)

It’s the inside that counts. By taking care of the central nerve system you will limit the stress hormones that come with it. Your body knows what to do to heal itself. Chiropractic works by restoring the natural, innate connection between the body and the brain. 

Are Safety Pins Really Safe?

By | ADHD, Allergies, Benefits of Chiropractic, chiropractic adjustment, High Blood Pressure, immune system | No Comments

Are safety pins really safe? Without spreading to much controversy on this thought process. The obvious and only answer is YES. Safety pins are designed to be safe. Hence the amazing name they are warranted. Just like our body and how it is designed, its safe and works correctly when everything is working the way it should. In a closed circuit. We are not talking about cuts, bruises, contusions, lacerations, broken bones etc, we are talking about the inside of the body and how it controls your life.

Your bodies most intelligent system (the central nerve system) works in the same fashion as a safety pin does. It works to its best ability when its completely connected/closed. The nerve system works best when there is no interference in the connection from the brain to body and body to brain. If there is any disturbance within these pathways then is the nerve system safe… is the body? The safety pin is not considered ‘safe’ if it is not fully closed to complete the connection of ‘safety’.

When a disturbance exists in the spinal column it is called a subluxation. The subluxation is a misalignment within the spinal column placing stress upon a single nerve fiber. As a result it will disrupt the communication between the brain and body and create interference. A subluxation opens the safety pin, and as a direct result is no longer safe.

A great analogy to use with justification to explain the merits of what Chiropractic aims to accomplish. Some would ask why the ‘safety pin’ opens in the first place? In order to use it you have to expose it to the world and the external stressors that comes with using something. Just like your nerve system. In order to live life you must expose yourself to the elements that comes with LIVING. You do not prevent it by living in a bubble isolated from life. So, get your central nerve system checked for any imbalance that can exist. 

Why A Spinal-Check Up Is First, Then The Adjustment

By | Benefits of Chiropractic, chiropractic adjustment, Chiropractic Myths, High Blood Pressure, immune system | No Comments

Why wouldn’t you want to access something first before making a change? Accessing the damage before alterations are made sounds pretty smart to us. In Gonstead Chiropractic we utilize the initial X-rays every spinal check-ups coupled with our tool of choice, the Neurocalometer (Scope). The Scope allows us to see inflammation along the spinal column and then to match it accordingly with your X-rays to see if this is an actual subluxation that needs an adjustment or if this is a compensation that is created via a subluxation that does NOT need adjusted.

Often times when it comes to your body and more specifically the spinal column, we assume that the area of pain is the area of correction. This is more often NOT the case. When a subluxation (misalignment within the spinal column placing undo stress upon a single nerve fiber) exists it disrupts the communication between the brain and body. Meaning? It changes the outcome of every tissue cell that is supposed to be in ideal function for that specific moment. A subluxation disrupts your body’s ability to be properly adapt and changes the course of your health. It doesn’t allow your brain an accurate reality of what is really happening.

Why in Gonstead Chiropractic do we use Neurocalometer before we adjust the spinal column. This is our tool of choice that we use for daily visits to access the spinal column looking for minute differences in temperature from one side of the spine to the next. Neural relationships to skin temperature offer a noninvasive method of quantifying neural function.

No other metric of healthy function has been used for as long as skin temperature. Nearly 2,500 years ago Hippocrates was said to have used a slurry of mud over the skin to identify those areas that dried fastest due to heat levels of the skin. As current research explains, thermal variability in humans is a sign of a healthy system (Adaptability Textbook).  

Enhancing Athletic Performance With Chiropractic

By | Benefits of Chiropractic | No Comments

The science of Chiropractic is founded on the premise that a proper Central Nerve System is essential to controlling and regulating the functioning of the human body by being able to properly ADAPT to the loads of internal and external stressors. This is impressive, am I right?  Guess what? The science is not new. The founding principles have existed way before the application of Chiropractic existed.

Innately the Central Nerve System (CNS) uses nerves to control every system in your body. Much like electricity uses wires as a conduit to travel across. Just like training the muscles through training and practice the spinal column needs regular check-ups during the stress you place on it. There is no healing force outside of the human body – Dr. Issac Jennings

Athletes are always looking for the edge to make sure the body is in peak potential. Understand when minor misalignments of the spine, referred to as subluxations occur they immediately cause nerve interference and weaken the entire structure of the human body. When subluxations exist for a period of time they inhibit biomechanical function that the athlete needs. Athletic injuries are often caused by improper biomechanics of muscle imbalances within the spine. Over time subluxations begin to inhibit performance which means

  • Delayed muscle response
  • Slower muscle contractions
  • More susceptible to injuries
  • Delayed mental activity
  • Etc Etc

Dr. Wolpert a Neuroscientist said it best with this statement – To understand movement is to understand the whole brain. And therefore it’s important to remember when you are studying memory, cognition, sensory processing, they’re there for a reason, and that reason is ACTION.

The body feeds on motion, and being an athlete, proper motion is KEY to optimal performance. Overuse is the top concern for athletes and combating the negative impact begins by making sure the CNS is free of interference to allow the body to heal after repetitive use. It’s not just the competitive nature of maintaining a healthy and optimal CNS, overall it benefits you in the long run.
