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…

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....

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…

Introduction to Living Your Life as a Miracle

Introduction to  Living your LIFE as a Miracle

June 26, 2013,   7  to  8  PM

June 29, 2013,  10 to 11 AM

Dr. Powers will be offering on-going classes to enhance your understanding of:

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…

Here is a partial list of the guest speakers:

Craig Rowland, Master Tai Chi Instructor, Visionary

Monica Justice, Certified Kirlian Photographer/Aura Reader.

Stan Padilla, Artist, Visionary, Educator…

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.

Buyer Beware: Auto Accidents and the Game of Intimidation.

Over the last 30 years I have assisted people involved in Automobile Accidents with injuries, pain and suffering and I have had several experiences like the following:

A Patient I have been assisting with preventative care calls me to inform me they have been in an automobile accident where they were hit and injured by another driver. The insurance company of the party that hit them immediately calls the injured party and begins the process of nullifying the extent of damage. The patient, not feeling the effect of the injury (still under the influence of adrenal hormone surge, not in pain, yet), does not want to cause any problem (rock the boat). They do not want to be confrontational and listens to the friendly adjuster (for the driver whom caused the accident). The adjuster, through the art of listening and caring, becomes the injured patients friend, so to speak. The end result of the new relationship is the patient is offered usually $1000.00 to use in any way they wish and told we will take care of things. The patient, not wanting to bother anyone or understand the future consequences of the impact/injury usually settles by depositing the check and the deal is done.  No future medical/chiropractic care will be awarded because you accepted the deal by depositing the check. Guess what? Unbeknownst to the patient, future medical/chiropractic care will be needed and there will not be any money available to compensate the patient for their losses. So, who looses?

This is the classic wolf dressed in the lamb suit

What to do in the case of being involved in an automobile accident?

It depends on the seriousness of the accident and yet even that doesn’t tell us at the time just what extent of damage has occurred or what will show up later in the function of your body and health. (By the way, if one person in the vehicle is experiencing symptoms and others are not, then to play it safe, all would do well to be examined because not all people respond/react the same at the same time).

A conservative approach is to seek medical/chiropractic care and get an examination to determine the immediate extent of injury as well as the precautions one should take. Not always is the amount of damage to the car directly related to the extent of injury to the occupants of the vehicle. 

Allow yourself to receive an initial series of care before determining, on your own, what you think is the amount of injury. This is because even slow speed impact, though it does not seem your are hurt, can show up at a later date with symptoms that can be seemingly unrelated to the supposed area of trauma. Remember the whole thing is connected and what happens to one part affects the rest (like a family).

After all, you are not wrong for seeking care (Chirpractic) when involved in an accident. That is why we are required to carry automobile insurance (liability).

Thank you for reading this….

It is my pleasure to be of assistance to you or anyone you know that has been involved in an Automobile Accident. Usually, there is no out of pocket expense to receive care. Call me if you should have any questions.
