The Natural State

In the beginning, you were created in the “natural state”. All cells were brand new and responding to the environment without prejudging. You were just experiencing it as it was. No outside influence, yet. So, initially, your cells were not the problem. However, over time, as your thoughts/reactions to the environment were interpreted and your cells received messages from your brainal-cord, your cells began to hold the memories of what was transmitted to them both through your nervous system and your field response. These nerves and responding cells held onto the facilitated tension state (reaction to threats from the environment) as designed for survival. A memory pattern was created, to be on alert, in case the threat happens again. (eg., burn your finger on the stove you will remember this for future safety).

Therefore, your cells, muscles, joints and ligaments did not initiate the tension state, but reacted to the brainal-cord as dictated.

The tension state, over time, increases as a snow ball rolling down a snowy slope and creates a state of less than peace and leads to joint, ligament, muscle wear and tear and ultimately a disconnect from the source of your ability to live. That means a disconnect from your LIFE…

Next: Understanding your Time Line…

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…

Part 1:           LIFE:  Understanding the miracle of YOU                                            Foundational concepts from conception to expiration, inspiring you                           to work with Part 2, Messages from the Body.

Part 2:           Messages from the Body:  Learning what your body is giving you as signs/symptoms allows you to respond and give back to your body                            before it reaches crisis mode. Knowledge is gained for the foundation to work with Part 3, Empowering YOU.

Part 3:           Empowering YOU:  Understanding the Law of LIFE and how to live for your LIFE , connected to the power that animates/motivates and                                  directs you. Using the Tools presented here and adding those you                                  already know, to live consciously connected to LIFE

You will be writing your Personal Owners Manual for LIFE

When these foundational classes are completed, Dr. Powers will be offering on-going workshops with guest speakers presenting their work to assist you in Living for YOUR LIFE…you will walk away from each workshop with information and skills to use immediately that will enhance your experience of living for your LIFE. It is up to you…

Understanding My Passion For Chiropractic

Enjoy this PowerPoint presentation and share this with your loved ones. This will enhance your understanding of why I am so passionate about helping you and all who wish to live a more healthy life.

Network Spinal Analysis

Dr. Powers studied Network Spinal Analysis, as taught by Dr. Donald Epstein, in 1990 and continues to use the protocol presently. You will find this presentation very interesting. Thank you for watching this and if you have any questions, please feel free to call me at (530) 888-8865 or email.

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. 

Honoring YOU

If you are so inclined to attend Wednesday Nights Spiritual Healing, then I will offer to all that attend a complimentary evaluation for you to hear what your body is telling you before it decides to leave you and ask for a divorce.

Terms:  ME, MYSELF, I

Me is your thoughts, chatter, ego, etc.

Myself is your body/form

I is the essence of LIFE/GOD/MIRACLE/LIFE FORCE/TRUTH, etc…

Simply put, “you” (the ME) are in relationship with your body/form (the MYSELF). When “you”  (the ME) disregards the body/form (the Myself), the body/form sends signals of help me (symptoms) and over time because we all turn an deaf ear to the sore spots, the body atrophies. This means it disconnects from the “I” or the LIFE FORCE,CHI/LOVE, etc. This means your body/form has less vitality. Like wilted lettuce. The Aging you see all around you is natural. And yet, a lot of the aging results from a disconnection from your LIFE FORCE. 

When we keep our cells connected to the LIFE FORCE (the “YOU”) the vitality of the form seems to know how to live in a higher state of JOY. Couple that with keeping the connection with proper joint/muscle function and you have a person with “pep in his step and a smile all the while” (Foster Hibbard, 1981).

Oh Beautiful

 

Wouldn’t it be correct to say that we all would really like to stay vital and healthy? You know, be able to run and play and think clearly to completion. 

Check it out….What you put into it is what you get out of it…

Dental Decay

Years ago, while having the old amalgam fillings removed at the Dental office, I noticed a quote in the restroom on the wall. It read, “Go ahead, ignore your teeth. Maybe they will go away.” Pretty straight forward and to the point, eh?

Well, from observing the Xrays of patients over 33 years, coming in with a complaint of some sort of pain, invariably, they all present with the same decay to their structure as decay to teeth. Difference is spinal decay is not from bacteria/plaque but from insidious changes in joint function that can not be flossed, brushed or whitened.

Spinal decay comes about from tensions and changes in normal joint motion attributed to many factors. The simple understanding is how we react to Physical Trauma, Emotional Trauma and Chemical trauma (even foods we eat). The other part of this equation is we actually learn or hold onto our experiences so we can possibly protect ourselves better next time. Most of  the memories, held as synaptic or facilitated neural pathways, are the ones other than LOVE. These held tensions, just in case needed for a quick response to danger, actually diminish the transmission of our normal essence of daily living. Over time, because of diminished transmission, this leads to lessened function of our tissues   (joint, muscle, organ, etc.)

Now, if we could reset to the Point Of Peace between our heads hitting the pillow and when we arise in the AM with the added flavor of stretching, exercise and adding more LOVE to our lives, maybe we would not need to be adjusted. Only when we experience a trauma of some kind and need to have our joints returned to normal biomechanical function.

Last comment: When you get your teeth drilled and filled you are usually seen a few times and job done. When you wait until you are in pain and your spine has what is called Degenerative Joint Disease or Osteoarthritis, it is not a simple matter of one or two adjustments and all is well. 

In order to maintain any structure, someone needs to put in the time and knowledge on just what is needed. Everything has a maintenance schedule. Using a wire coat hanger to hold your muffler on isn’t correcting the problem. 

Help me help you and others in enjoying the quality of LIFE you presently have. Bring in your family and friends for periodic check ups and do the right thing.
