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 The Law Of Fear Works

By | Benefits of Chiropractic, energy, High Blood Pressure, immune system | No Comments

The stressful SHIFT is and has been occurring for some time since the COVID. We are talking about the emotional cascade of events that comes as extra baggage with everything associated with the COVID. The message is clear and with it comes the fear, with fear comes STRESS. When fear manifests it SHIFTS the trajectory of ones health for an instant or forever, depending on how well you adapt to the stress. We need to implement specific tactics that allow us to sustain our health.

You might not have FEAR during this time. Fantastic. Your body still begins to shift when your waiting in line at the grocery store and next to you is the person with the Hazmat suit. Be honest, it alters your perception and “can” trigger a stress response.

Specific tactics to enhance your bodies adaptability start with the central nerve system (CNS).  Resilience is our top concern.  Allowing the body to enhance its resiliency in times of chaos begin with a functional and coordinated CNS.
The difference between a bodies immune system that is resilient vs an immune system that is depleted is in the limitations of matter.  And what limits matter? The vertebral subluxation (misalignment within the spinal column) disrupts the communication from brain to body altering and shifting every system within the body (immune system as well) to a dysfunctional state!
The vertebral subluxation-itself a limitation of matter-which occludes an opening producing pressure upon nerves reducing the supply of the producer to the product (limits your brain to body connection and versa).
If there were no vertebral subluxation

  • no occlusion of any verterbal foramina
  • no pressure upon nerves
  • no reduction of supply between producer and product
  • no LIMITATION of product to reproduce the producer

To adjust the subluxation is to advance mankind, up his efficiency, increase his ADAPTABILITY, make him more natural and more at peace within himself. – Chiropractic Philosophy Science And Art

Ensuring health from within begins with addressing your spinal column. Create a new law of health by looking towards your health from within first and foremost. 

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.

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. 

The “Three Little Pigs” And Sustaining Your Immune System Against The Big Bad Wolf

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


What can we gather from “The Three Little Pigs” fable that we were taught at a very young age? Implementing a fable into our lives allows for a learning experience. Learn from history and what you have been taught since the beginning. With the growing ‘concern’ of the Coronavirus eating away at every news media, take a step back and reflect on the importance and adaptability that the human body has when hard work is implemented on a daily routine.

When building and sustaining your immune system do not settle for the ‘instant’ gratification or the quick fix that we have been led to believe works. The first two little pigs underestimate the time and hard work it takes to build a strong foundation to keep them well and protected. The other pig as we know invested more TIME and energy on something that lasts. Understand that the body is protected when you take the time to do things right..

How do you sustain your immune system?

1.    Get your spine checked by a Chiropractor. You don’t want to handicap your central nerve system, the master control system who directly regulates and coordinates everything about your immune system. Chiropractic research performed by Dr. Ronald Pero, Ph.D., chief of cancer prevention research at New York’s Preventive Medicine Institute measured the immune systems of people under chiropractic care as compared to those in the general population and those with cancer and other serious diseases. His initial three-year study was comprised of 107 individuals who had been under chiropractic care for five years or more. The chiropractic patients were found to have a 200% greater immune competence than those people who had not received chiropractic care, and they had 400% greater immune competence than those people with cancer and other serious diseases. The immune system’s superiority of those under chiropractic care did not appear to diminish with age.

2.  Get adequate rest to sustain your bodies daily routine that we love!

3.  Don’t stop exercising.

4.  Wash your hands. For real it’s that simple, wash your hands.

5.   Being consistent and diligent with your diet.

6.  Create positive thoughts or be a positive thought. By creating positive thoughts and being around positive people you will decrease the bodies ability to produce stress hormones which will breed dis-ease and compromise your immune system. Positive like a proton.

Sustaining your immune system is a tough job. This is why you should get your spine checked regularly. If you think being well is expensive, what is the price for disease/sickness care? Time has and always will perpetuate those methods which better serve mankind. Hit the sweet spot and sustain your immune system by being consistent.

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. 

Judging Your Health Much?

By | Benefits of Chiropractic, kids chiropractic | No Comments

How does one judge their health? Most of the time we judge our health on how we ‘feel’ on a day to day basis. WE are a day to day society. We forget the BIG picture that the only easy day was yesterday. Longevity and proper CONTINUAL maintenance is key. Most of the time people judge their health based on certain criteria, external influences that become important because we deem them so, which is a lie. If you really think about it, just because a person might “look” good or perform a certain physical feat doesn’t mean they are healthy. The person who has six-pack abs, runs marathons, is allergic to every type of food, has constant GI problems…and the list goes on, would you consider to be ‘healthy’?

·  How we look in the mirror (any wrinkles)

·  How much we weigh on the scale

·  How long we have been on a certain “diet trend”

·  How many push-ups we can do

·  How small our double-chin is

·  How many signs and symptoms we DON’T have

To judge your health first and foremost begins with looking where your health begins. We can accomplish an accurate assessment of your health via x-ray analysis. By visualizing the spinal bones we are able to access the health of the Central Nerve System (it is your health). The age old adage that ” Beauty lies within” is so relevant to us. We assume the term is for dating and meeting the love of your life. Just as well, the beauty of your spinal column will dictate your overall health and well-being.

By removing any source of irritation to the Central Nerve System the body will be healthy and the spinal column properly aligned. You live your life through your Central Nerve System. By keeping the spine aligned your Central Nerve System has an accurate grip on your health and better able to adapt to the stressors you place it on. Look within the body for health.

Out Of Sight…Out Of Mind?

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

While the phrase “out of sight, out of mind” works for some aspects of life that you would like to change, when it comes to taking care of your overall health, this phrase does not apply. The reason being, is that your spinal column protects the most important part of your body, the central nerve system (CNS). The CNS was not designed to be seen, unlike our teeth. It is exactly where it is supposed to be; central. Your health begins and ends within your spinal column. We take for granted our health often because we cannot see. Out of sight…out of mind comes into play.

If your spine were on your face, you’d take better care of it, guaranteed. How come? Most people have to see a problem to believe a problem exists. Believe this. You live your life through your CNS, every human experience you have is processed, coordinated, and controlled via your CNS. Take care of it. Taking care of the problem before the problem begins enters in the world of prevention.

Gonstead Chiropractic analysis allows a closer look at the story of your spine. Out of sight does not apply to us. To see is to know and not to see is to guess. X-Ray films, when necessary, allow our doctors to visualize the entire structure of your spine, joint and disc integrity, and ruling out any pathological findings. This allows us to be as specific as possible and eliminate all guessing when it comes to your care.

Don’t take for granted the most important thing you were born with…your health. Own your health, and start with spinal check-ups. Just because you cannot see your health does not make it an entity that cannot be measured. Keeping your body in peak performance is what Gonstead Chiropractors do. We help you prevent health problems and keep you functioning at your best.
