The Four Keys to Health

This program is designed to create an awareness of the four key requirements for optimal health. Food, water, oxygen and proper nerve function are all essential for health and wellbeing. During this presentation, we will define health and discuss the lifestyle habits that will create balance and integrity, thus empowering participants to make a lasting shift in the continuum from sickness and disease toward health and wellness.

 

Health From Within

We introduce our audience to a definition of health based on physiological function and balance where the body can adapt to stress and repair damaged tissues effectively and efficiently. We discuss the three types of stress and the adaptive processes that can lead to health. We will also review the adaptive processes that can lead to disease, focusing on lifestyle while providing participants with tips and ideas to propel them toward health and wellness.

 

Neurology of the Subluxation

This is an in-depth program that compiles decades of scientific research designed to educate allied health professionals. The neurophysiological effects of spinal subluxation on muscular activity, circulation, immune function, adaptability to stress, and visceral function are all grossly misunderstood. This research points out: (1) the neurological compensation patterns that cause the development and progression of degenerative arthritis, (2) the short-term effects of the spinal adjustment on afferent and efferent function, and (3) the long- term benefit of life-time care to improve spinal and nervous system integrity and overall health and wellness.

 

Benefits of Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy

  Our audience will be educated on the importance of spinal balance and proper neurological function to support pregnancy, fetal development, and promote effective labor and delivery. This program was designed for expecting mothers, their families, and allied health professionals (midwives, nurses, obstetricians and pediatricians). We will discuss the importance of exercise, appropriate stretches, and the importance of regular spinal check-ups to ensure effective labor and delivery that is safe and magical for the mother and the baby.

 

Healthy Aging

This program highlights the difficulty today’s seniors face in a world of health care designed to treat disease as opposed to creating health.

We will also discuss the growing evidence proving that the overuse and the inappropriate prescribing of antibiotics actually damages a child's health. Research from British Medical Journal, Journal of the American Medical Association, as well as the Centers for Disease Control all show alarming trends leading to increased incidence of childhood disease linked to drug therapy.
