What is in Front of Your Nose

Tonight I was reading David R. Hawkins, MD, Phd, Dialogues on Consciousness and Spirituality and in his opening comments he said,

“What we are talking about today is consciousness. We are going to recontextualize the entire human experience throughout all of history, from many and all viewpoints simultaneously—recontextualize science, epistemology, knowledge, ontology, so that will take us an hour. The nice thing about this lecture is that you don’t have to think. What we will explain is what you already know, and all you need is somebody to define it. Once it is defined, you will realize that it is obvious. That is what makes it difficult, because to explain the obvious and the simple is excruciatingly difficult. Complex is no problem at all. To explain what is obvious and in front of your nose is sort of like a Zen Koan. I mean, it is extremely difficult. It takes many years of concentration, and finally you get what is in front of your nose….”

This is parallel to what I am talking about, the understanding that the essence of LIFE  is the key to your being alive… To use your thoughts to tap into the experience of knowing and sensing this presence that is unobservable, untouchable and basically under your nose is challenging. To get a handle on how simple it is to be with it and walk with it in your everyday moment to moment time line… To use your mind, imagination (what a gift that is) to practice being aware of this third part that makes up the Whole YOU, a Human Being. Remember, to heal means to make one Whole which means to be MIND, BODY and LIFE (Spirit/Soul) unified and working together. Until we practice being or unifying all three with each breath, we are walking around as Human Doings . A head with a body and with some connection to LIFE. Tuning in to the third part, LIFE, assists you in seeing LIFE in others…and it is the most awesome energy on Earth…

Remember, when my mother would ask me “how my life is”, I would answer, “my LIFE is awesome all the time, my living experience can be challenging at times.”

Before an Adjustment

Why Do I Do What I Do?

Why do I do what I do?  I believe our existence is a miracle that we have not fully discovered how to use it’s potential. I have been given a gift of being able to listen (history), examine and know how to locate where you have interference in your nervous system and the knowledge of how to remove that interference. Your pain is often the result of injury (Chemical, Emotional, Physical Trauma) to your tissues that creates a disconnection of your LIFE energy with your form. When the nerve supply is compromised to your injured tissues, removing the interference often leads to a return to normal function, if not set in stone.

I do all of the above with you in mind…your are the miracle I have been waiting to meet…Thank you for your existence…

Oh Beautiful, to have vision....

Oh Beautiful, to have vision….

Different types of adjustments affect different kinds of interference…

 

What If You Knew?

What if you Knew?

What if you knew that every time you had a trauma (painful event) your nervous system learned and recorded the event and the emotions involved…(kinda like etched on your lens system…(See etched lenses theory by DHP)

What if you knew that this learned (facilitated neural synaptic memory) event is held and directed into your tissues (cells – living consciousness)…

What if you knew that for survival and for purposes of moving into the next moment, your conscious awareness of these events is hidden and yet the story is still waiting dormant…

What if you knew that this facilitation actually creates a tension in the neural tissues and this translates into tension in the cells of your body…the tone of your nervous system creates the tone of your (life) cells…Donald Epstein, DC

What if you knew that this constant chronic tension lends to the contraction over time that shows up as what is termed old age…the cause is the interpretor holding onto the information (for survival, can’t let it go because we might need it later or in other words we do not reset to peace) and therefore the tissues expend excess energy to hold the defense pattern and tissues that are held in tension harden and atrophy…(old age)

What if you knew that there are ways to release this stuck facilitated patterns of survival (that are draining you), methods to reconnect your cells to the energy of LIFE  and methods you can do consciously to aid in the return of viatilty to your body and mind, etc…

 

Don’t think so…alrighty then, continue as you are…

OR

Call Dr. Powers and ask for a brief meeting to discuss just how it all can be done…

Awesome Mastery of Craniopathy With Dr. DeJarnette, DO, DC

Thank you for watching this video presentation from 1980 when I was studying Osteopathy and Chiropractic with one of my most amazing Teachers, Dr. Major B. DeJarnette, DO, DC. I hope you enjoy this information and find the same respect I found for the Mastery Dr. DeJarnette presents.

Why Wait For the Symptom (RED LIGHT ON THE DASH)

You are always welcome to check under the hood and see just what the real story is before the next symptom, because it is all symptoms big or small that are telling the story that will eventually become the reason to do something about it…love you…Call NOW and Invest in your HEALTH or should I say your JOY of living before you really need to do something about it…

The Lymphatic Pump

Understanding the lymphatic pump.

Valves exist in all lymph channels, even down to the tips of the lymphatic capillaries. These valves are further apart in larger lymphatics and closer together in the smaller ones. As the lymph vessel fills with fluid (from the surrounding tissues, waste) the pressure on the walls causes an intrinsic contraction of the lymphatic channel creating the pumping of lymph in one direction only down the lymph channel.

In addition to the pumping caused by intrinsic contraction of the lymph vessel walls, any external factor that compresses the lymph vessel can also cause pumping. In order of  their importance these factors are:

Contraction of muscles
Passive movement s of the parts of the body
Arterial pulsations
Compression of the tissues by objects outside the body (like massage)

The lymphatic pump becomes very active during exercise. It can increase lymph flow as much as 5 to 15 times. Also, during periods of rest, lymph flow is very sluggish….(sitting long periods of time).

Therefore, movement is so important to enhance the flow of lymph…and yet if one is very toxic or ill, you can see that the lymph should not be activated too much or it will dump the toxins back into the circulatory system and this is what causes a relapse….(Just when you were getting over the cold, you thought it would be great to get some exercise and go out for a run). 

Chiropractic Care at this office enhances immune system health.  Dr. Powers administers lymphatic drainage techniques to assist you in reconnecting to your vitality…Call NOW…

Understanding the Premise of Chiropractic

Knowing that your nervous system actually communicates with all the cells of your body.

Knowing that there is a wisdom that animates, motivates and directs your existence since your conception.

Knowing that this intelligence must communicate through what has been determined to be your nervous system.

Knowing that any disruption in this communication whether small, subluxation, or extreme, severed nerves, causes less connection or no connection of this intelligence to the cells of the living organism and thereby lessened health or death.

With this understanding the benefits of the Chiropractic adjustment can be said to be paramount to any other type of therapy short of initially saving ones life as a result of extreme trauma.

The basic premise of the Chiropractic Adjustment is to remove any interference (subluxation) in/of the transmission of wisdom (life force) to the cells of the body (density). By removing this interference, the natural process of healing and restoration of function can be attained to the best result possible by allowing the impulse of life force to be received by the tissues of the body.

Benefits of Chiropractic:

  •  Restoration of communication between the brain and cells of your body (motor nerves).

  •  Restoration of communication between cells of your body and the brain (sensory nerves).

  •  Restoration of joint mechanics allowing for an increase in ROM.

  •  Restoration of normal muscle tension to allow the joint to function.
    -release of muscle spasms that result from guarding injured joints.
    -release of chemicals trapped by muscles that are guarding joints.
    -abnormal muscle contraction results in osteo-arthritic changes to the joint (arthritis).

  •  Restoration of physiology as a result of a return of normal nerve impulse.
    -(to include; heart rate, digestion, respiration, immune   function, balance, etc.)
     

    Merilee and Dr.

    I am a diagnostician not of names for disease but for locating where and what is causing your lack of ease or disease…

    The results you experience are a result of a combination of who and what I do and who you are and what you could be… 

       I don’t treat conditions. I locate where patients are disconnected (subluxated)and assist them in reconnecting by listening to the cells (validation)through touch, Network Spinal Analysis, Cranial, visceral work and adjusting as needed. I teach patients to listen/reconnect to their bodies and understand “LIFE”. Call now.
