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…

Time Line and YOU

Ok, so what is he going to tell us this time?  

All endeavors have a beginning, a process or journey and a date of completion. A TIME LINE….

I am inviting you to begin taking care of yourselves on all levels. Spiritual, Physical and Mental.

Tania and Greg Stewart will be here on January 11, 2012, and offer you Spiritual Healing.

Like Mental healing, Spiritual Healing is a little intangible to most. How do you get a Specific Measurable Result from the Healers in a one time deal? Same with Mental Healing. Is there a Specific Measurable Result attained with one session?

In Physical Healing, as one part of the model I offer, the Specific Measurable Result is a return to function and along with that a noticeable reduction in pain, though not necessarily immediately after one adjustment. 

The goal we all wish to attain is living fully functioning as a result of the connection we make with Spiritual, Physical and/or Mental Healing.  

As with any journey,  starting and finishing are two different animals.

It is recommended, as with banking accounts, to keep putting in the time and effort to reach your goal. As with the Healing work of John Of God, people stay at least a week and often return more than once to fully attain the full healing.

It is up to you to decide how or what your plan of action looks like.

Reach beyond

Tania went to see John of God and stayed in his presence for 30 days before she felt the healing take place.  This lead to her staying on and working with John of God during the next year.

When digging for gold and you quit one inch away from the vein is the gamble. I know it is challenging and yet, it all comes down to TRUST. Thank your Gremlin for the doubt, then look for possibility and be open to understand, which leads to knowing…

I look forward to your presence Wednesday night…


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.

Nature’s Way

It is nature’s way to break structure down to its elements. It is through our consciousness to find ways to maintain structure(s) to diminish nature’s way. Like the three little Pigs, each built a house out of different materials with the need for shelter (from the elements, and a wolf). Each of us by understanding can take knowledge and thereby be responsible to build our house (body) with the proper materials so it can enjoy LIFE in a body.

Luke 12:32: 
“It is our Father’s great pleasure ~ it brings God “Joy” ~ to grant US the living experience of Heaven”.

Most of us began with the miracle of LIFE and a form most amazing, the body. As time goes by, we will succomb to nature’s way. In 1895, someone (Daniel David Palmer) put together an Art, Science and Philosophy to work with nature and our gifts as humans to assist in the maintenance of our bodies by keeping the Miracle of LIFE connected to the body. Likened to a hose bringing water to the garden, the nerves bring Life Force (LIFE) to the cells of the body. Actions of Daily living can result in tensions that over time cause a lessening of the transmission of the Life Force reaching the cells of the body. Chiropractic is one of the gifts given to us, that is understood as an Art, to  remove the cause of interference (subluxation) that diminishes  the ability of Life Force to reach and nourish/motivate and animate our form.

Why is it so hard to understand how simple it really is? 

Why is it that Chiropractic is not a household word and everyone brings their family members in for at least a check up just like the Dental check ups.

Your spine is no different as far as decay as the teeth in your mouth. You can live (somewhat) without teeth and yet can you live without your vertebrae?

The Point of Peace

The Point of Peace. Where is it and what does it mean?

Within all creation there is a Point of Peace.

What is the Point of Peace?

Can you imagine the point in time, when the two cells that made you found each other and united? After the long distance they had to travel and through all the effort needed to find each other, they were elated and relieved to have this part of the journey complete. This is the”Moment of Awe”(or Ahh).

However, even though feeling a sense of Awe, they knew they needed something else, something way more important. They knew they could not complete the journey without the “Essence of YOU”.

They only had so much Life Force left that was given to them by their hosts and they knew time was of the essence. So, they called out for and asked (for they knew “ask and you shall receive”) for their partner in “LIFE”.

The call was heard by God and God responded by sending “YOU”, a small piece of God to join in the journey. When YOU arrived and the union was made, a voice was heard to say, “Be Still Now and Know That I Am God”.

This moment in time, when the “two cells now one” and the “YOU” (spirit, Love, Chi) united, has become known as “The Point Of Peace”.

At this point in time in your life, an intense sense of YES took place.

From this point forward, the events of your life over coated this ever present moment of ecstacy.

Whenever possible, use your imagination and remember the Point of Peace. That point in time filled with joy and love as your two cells incorporated the presence of “YOU”. The point in time of your creation (a miracle).

The Point of Peace is ever present within you and it is yours to remember and discover where you might find it within you NOW.

This is the moment life began for you and no one can take that awareness of “YOU” away from you. Simply remember…
