What is Chiropractic?
The philosophy and science of chiropractic is that there are problem areas of the spine that affect your entire nervous system.
In these problem areas, the spinal bones are misaligned or have lost their normal range of movement.
This causes irritation, or puts pressure on the nerves which interferes with the communication between your brain and body.
Some symptoms include: Back and neck pain, headaches, neck stiffness and/or pain in the shoulders, arms, wrists, legs, knees or feet.
Chiropractors use highly specialized, gentle hands-on techniques (referred to as adjustments), to help return your spine to its normal alignment and to it's optimal health by restoring and maintaining both nerve and joint function.
To further enhance their patients' care, Dr's. Paul and Indira often incorporate other therapies into their patient-specific treatment plans at no additional cost.
Some of these therapies include: Acupuncture, Therapeutic Ultrasound, TENS, and Nutritional Counseling.
The 4 Essentials of Health
Food is the fuel and building block for growth and reproduction of cells and tissues. It consists of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. If any of these were to stop you would die. If their balance is interfered with, your health potential would not be at it's optimum. For example, if you ate high fat or sugar foods (french fries, doughnuts, etc.) what would be the possible condition of your arteries in 10-20 years? If you said more closed with fat, you are probably right. Result - lowered health potential.
(fluids) - Seventy-five percent of your body is water. It is used in almost every body reaction. If you stop fluid intake, you die. If you drink unhealthy fluids (caffeine, alcohol, additives, preservatives, dyes, etc.) or not enough fluids, your body's health potential is decreased.
Oxygen is also used in almost every reaction of the body and is carried by the pulmonary (lungs) and circulatory (blood) systems. Interference to these systems could stop oxygen and result in death. We should exercise and breathe deeply to increase our oxygenation to cells. Researchers say that oxygen depravation can cause almost anything from fatigue to cancer. If oxygenation is not at it's optimum, neither is your health potential.
4. NERVE IMPULSE
Nerve Impulse is the most commonly overlooked essential for life and health. Nerve impulse is an electrochemical charge transmitted by the brain through the nervous system to the body, it is the life force that keeps us alive and "charged". All body function is dependant on this life force or brain impulse. Cells must be electrically charged in order to vibrate and function. If your brain stopped (generating these electrical impulses) you would die. In fact in order to be legally dead, brain impulse has to stop. If you severed the nerve to your heart, would it stop? How about your stomach, lungs or hand? What if you just interfere with the normal nerve transmission? Would these organs and tissues function at their optimum potential?
