Beat The Burnout Of Health “Fads”

By | Benefits of Chiropractic | No Comments

Here we go again! Burnout happens for numerous reasons, often being associated with boredom and even insanity. And when it comes to our health, there is an entire INDUSTRY designed to make us believe it has our best interests in mind. Yet by now most of us realize their real belief is profit.

Too often third parties will influence government to make some of these healthier “fads” a nation wide priority (I will not talk about drugs and pharmaceuticals right now). Consider the “Low Fat Diet.” This message started in the 1960’s. Gaining steam and momentum by the 1980’s, it was heavily endorsed by physicians, the Federal Government, the food industry, and media.

Skip the burnout effect of trying the newest and latest. Do what works. Do what science has validated through trials, cohort studies, controlled trials, etc….EVIDENCE. Specifically, evidence that was presented years ago and can be challenged today. Some still hold merit and validity while others don’t. Here are two examples:

  • From the 1930s to the 1950s one of the most powerful phrases one could hear is “doctor recommend” when it came to SMOKING. Obviously any research today completely disengages any study that was performed.  This equates to no validity by today’s standards.
  • In 1993 Ontario Ministry of Health In Canada commissioned a study that looked at the effectiveness and cost efficiency of Chiropractic care for low back pain (Manga, et al. 1993). It concluded that Chiropractic service is the most cost effective option and that Chiropractic services should be fully insured under the Ontario Health Insurance Plan. This still holds merit in today’s society, which equates to still having validity!

Chiropractic care is the study of health and what causes people to BE and continue to BE healthy. Prevention. Think how cool this is. Every single time you receive an adjustment to a subluxation within the spinal column your brain becomes enhanced, thusly performing better. Take for instance the cerebellum, which is a central integrator for all SENSORY information which is vital for fine tuned coordinated movements, speech, breathing…get the point?

You don’t need to go to the Chiropractor to find out that exercise and diet are important. When a physical problem arises, a physical solution is needed. This is why Chiropractic emphasizes the action of preventative steps to keep and sustain your health long-term. 

The Impact Of Worry On Your Health

By | Benefits of Chiropractic | No Comments

Worry much? The easy solution would be to simply tell you to stop worrying and focus on living. More often than not this is easier said than done. What we “need” more than ever is healthy people to adapt and overcome the external stressors (media, politics, etc) in life that produce worry. In other words, learn to train your body to do good.

In order to prevent the chemical overload of emotional stress on the body, we need to implement strategies to promote our HEALTH and well-being. We all know diet and exercise are vastly important. However, many don’t realize the importance of maintaining spinal alignment to enhance and better their health. It just so happens that our emotions can create the realities in our brains and visa versa. The highway of communication for these interactions takes place via the central nerve system (CNS) which is protected via the spinal bones.

Chiropractic offers health care that is noninvasive and non-addicting. It allows proper connection between the brain and body to enhance your health and create adaptive positive changes on a continual second to second basis because our external stressors are always changing.

We need to start implementing ADAPTIVE behaviors in our lives. Obviously this begins with first and foremost taking care of one’s health and addressing the CNS, the master control system in charge of not only regulating the immune system, but also any thoughts and behaviors that lead to positive actions.

It’s called positive plasticity. The more you recruit your CNS to do something positive, it is rewarding to every tissue cell in your body. Learn to smile more, ride a bike, type, learn a musical instrument, eat your favorite food. The body rewards positive behavior.

The opposite of positive plasticity is maladaptive plasticity. The body can learn to be in a constant state of survival (fight or flight.) We can learn to dysfunction just like we can learn to ride a bike. We see that things like negative self-talk, bad habits and poor sleep can begin to add up and manifest into so much more. A good analogy is an ice-berg. You will always see the tip of the ice-berg and what it creates, when the real danger is hidden from view.

Give Yourself Time To Re-Organize

By | Benefits of Chiropractic | No Comments

Organization is ideal for your life, work, family and household . But it is also important for you.  The body is crated to be organized in a healthy manner. Without this proper organization the body is unable to coordinate and adapt to the loads it is placed under. When we begin to de-clutter the house it is realized that we are doing this to allow proper function of the household – which comes with organization. Same thing with our bodies. Sure it’s great to”feel and look” good, but how about functioning BETTER?!!!

Let us establish that health exists from within the body first and foremost. The central nerve system (CNS) being all there is to sustain all other systems of your body. When we neglect our CNS and accumulate health problems in our life the fast-food mentality of “now” does not fix what has been done. Years of abuse, denial, bad advice and illnesses accumulate until one can no longer recognize the healthy state the body used to be in.

The principle of time – There is no process that does not require time. When you are on the road to recovery understand that it is a road for miles to come. It’s actually better that way. Giving your body the ample time to heal the tissue cells that have become impacted allows your body to re-organize and adapt for future stressors. Instead of sweeping debris under the rug, why not actually take the time to clean it up correctly and go after the actual causes of bad health. And remember time can either be a friend or an enemy. If we do the right things most of the time we will reap the benefits. Contrary, we will have to deal will the effects!

Your body is a temple and when that temple begins to accumulate health problems, organization is key. Health problems are like clutter in your house and you begin to horde them over and over again missing the reality that accumulation of bad habits can happen just like good habits. When organization is lost so goes your health.

By the time many people are ready to take control of their CNS they understand that one adjustment does not suffice. Subluxations (misalignments within the spinal column create dis-coordination creating instability within your health). Cleaning the house the natural way takes time to allow your body to adapt and heal form subluxations that have reorganized matter in a bad way. Take care of your health starting with the CNS, your life depends on it. 

May We Have Your Consent?

By | Benefits of Chiropractic | No Comments

We are fortunate to live in the era of the informed consumer. However, one of the biggest obstacles we face is accessing and considering the source of information. In a capitalist, free market society we always need to consider the source. The phrase, “Trust Me I Am A Doctor,” holds no merit to us. Our strategy begins with education.

Our informed consent to you from Basler Family Chiropractic (BFC) is based on principles that we understand to be known as truths. We encourage questions, thoughts, and open dialogue. We need to meet on the level of creating a shared partnership so that we can better our community and the outlook of what  “healthcare” actually is.

Our office model is based on the patient and the patient’s needs. Naming it the “Patient Centered Model,” we believe we are not here to make decisions for you, but rather to be in your ‘corner,’ supporting you with knowledge we have obtained in our schooling. This allows us to better educate you about chiropractic healthcare.

The ‘type’ of doctor that you choose to be involved in your health matters! At BFC we believe, understand, and know WHY and HOW the body is self regulating and self-healing. Every human experience one encounters is processed and coordinated via the central nerve system (CNS.) Restrictions known as subluxations (misalignments within the spinal column) limit the body’s potential to be at its full expression of health.

Any interference within the CNS will directly  impact ones potential to properly adapt naturally to the external stressors in life. While  chiropractic is not the only profession focused on prevention, health, and healing, we believe it is the most practical one to give you the solutions  you are looking for.  

Welcome To What We Believe

By | Benefits of Chiropractic | No Comments

In this office we are Subluxation based Chiropractic care. We do not perform this because it is the doctrine in Chiropractic care. We do this because it is what Chiropractic care is. In short we are to detect and correct vertebral subluxtions by hand. Chiropractic’s definition itself was developed by Reverend Samuel H. Weed which means “done by hand”.

Some people think that Chiropractic is supplement use, vitamins, physical therapy, lasers, or other forms of modalities that are not congruent with what Chiropractic actually is. Many will attempt to “add” or limit what Chiropractic care really is. Fortunately the Subluxation model of established Chiropractic care has not been proven wrong. Genuinely speaking, Chiropractic care is working without having to “add” more.

In this office we utilize the Gonstead System Of Chiropractic which incorporates full spinal analysis to detect and corrected vertebral subluxations within the spinal column, using our tools of choice…our hands. X-ray analysis is utilized to access each spine differently ensuring your care is specific to you and, more importantly, warranted for a correction. We understand that subluxations are created by the body’s inability to adapt to the loads (stress) under which you place it. The effects of subluxations:

  • decreased vitality
  • impaired immune response
  • altered metabolism/physiology
  • altered cognitive function
  • altered behaviors
  • altered genetic expression

We believe in this office that our model of Chiropractic care is the most practical solution for you. We understand that the most probable outcome of a negative health consequence begins within the spinal column. Our focus is not to make people dependent on Chiropractic care, but rather to allow one to understand what the body is capable of while under Chiropractic care. This offers an the most practical reward for sustaining health without adding or subtracting from it.

We believe that we are crucial to the transformation and expression of allowing natural health care for the human race. Remember even long before the profession of Chiropractic was established in 1895, Hippocrates in 460 B.C. attested and said, “Look well to the spine for the cause of disease.”

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!

Led Astray With Your Health? Jump Back On!

Consider the source. Always try to do your homework regarding the source of any information. This is especially crucial in current times. On the other hand, self thinking people who exercise critical thought may sometimes need guidance.  Some would say that we are born with two things: our names and our health. What we do with them is up to the choices we make and the encounters that shape them.

We have been led to believe that health can be bought. It’s something that only certain people can acquire. Obviously false!  Yet this concept has been branded in more minds than we can count. If you have been led astray with health propaganda and the growing commerce behind it, get off that bus!

Buying health is like the Diderot Effect. We jump from one diet to the next, promising us a new brand of green tea because we saw a flashy post on someone’s Twitter account about “fast results.” The Diderot Effect is such that obtaining a new possession often creates a spiral of consumption which leads one to acquire new things. And when these latest fads don’t work, just take some pills!

 Chiropractic states that our focus is the study of health and what causes people to live functionally without limitations. Being healthy can be addictive; we often take our good health for granted. When it rains five days in a row, it’s easy to  look forward to the sun and complain about the rain. Similarly, when our body is in a dysfunctional state it’s easy to talk about what we “used” to be like while complaining about the pain.

A major emphasis with Chiropractic is a preventional lifestyle. If you are taking care of your Central Nerve System (CNS) you will have more “Sunnier Days.” How?  True health care begins by taking care of your CNS. A CNS that is free of vertebral subluxations is allowed to flourish and keep the normal state of health present and continued therefrom. The CNS controls your every human experience you have.

So jump on this bus! Good health shouldn’t be complicated. A spinal check-up here, a spinal check-up there. So please don’t get caught up in the “Diderot Effect Of Fake Health.”

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.  

Time To Recover

By | Benefits of Chiropractic | No Comments

Too soon? Of course not! We have to start somewhere and now is a perfect time to start. The principle of time – There is no process that does not require time. Now, more than ever we need to start the discussion of the road to recovery. In Chiropractic care we enforce this principle on a daily basis, there is no such thing as the quick fix, “the magic adjustment”, or any other fallacies that Chiropractic is a one and done paradigm. Gaining a state of constant homeostasis is necessary for continued health…meaning time is a necessity.

Adapting to stressors is of great importance to being optimally healthy. This, of course, is a practical impossibility to achieve as a constant. A startle reflex is born into us (Adaptability). So, what do we do? We need to adapt and recover in a controlled and quick recoup from the stressors in life. Consistently adapt and recover when and how we need to. Trust the master control system – The Central Nerve System to make coordinated actions to allow the body to be intelligent and work with unity and proper arrangement.

How IMPORTANT is the Central Nerve System – science showed that in cancer patients with tumors the doctors thought that severing the nerve supplying the tumor cells would diminish the tumor and the cancer would regress. On the contrary the complete opposite happened and the cancer would overtake the patients. This making clear the Central Nerve System was slowing the spread and destruction of the cancer.

In order to accomplish a sense of healing and adapting the Central Nerve System need be free of any limitations that directly impacts its coordination. Subluxations (misalignments within the spinal column) place undo stress upon the Central Nerve System creating incoordination in our bodies ability to adapt appropriately. Communication signals between the brain and body keep homeostasis constantly in a state of union. Whenever there is a disruption in the normal movement of the vertebrae in your spine, health will begin to suffer and dysfunction will take over. Silver Lining? WE ARE GOOD AT HELPING YOU!
