Hello Dear patients, friends and family,

March is here and it’s almost spring- the daffodils are coming up in Maryland, it’s the seed-sowing time of year and we have lots to look forward to, especially now that we are freer than last month, and you know what I mean- IT feels great!


Do you believe your body has the innate ability to heal? It’s true- You don’t need a diagnosis or a “condition” to determine what is wrong with you. You don’t need another drug.  What you need is to STOP depending on medicine propaganda and the sick-care model we are so conditioned to in this country.


I continue to urge you to trust your body, trust your sense of self-awareness and trust that if you have the correct mindset and listen to your body, seek out help when you need it, surround yourself with positive people, provide the proper nourishment for your body, slow down and take time to relax more , spend MORE time outdoors, drink more pure WATER and pay attention to what your body is telling you, YOU CAN HEAL!


And – ENJOY the benefits of chiropractic – the largest natural, drug-free, surgery-free, expressive healthcare system in the world.

* We provide a holistic approach in our office- everything plays a role in the healing process- what you eat, your sleep and bowel habits, hobbies, water intake, etc  – they all MATTER!

If you are suffering with undue stress, postural distortions, pain anywhere, skin conditions that don’t resolve, hormonal disturbances , give our functional medicine/chiropractic/nutrition practice a try.


Dr MaryAnn

Why is Your Nervous System Important?
The goal of chiropractic is to locate and correct subluxations to release stress from your nervous system. Why is that important?

Why is your nervous system important?

Without it you’d be in the ultimate sensory deprivation tank – not be able to connect with anything or anyone not seeing, hearing, feeling, smelling, or moving. You’d be completely alone inside yourself.

It’s your connection to your inner and outer worlds – to all your body parts.  You need it so all your body parts (billions and trillions of them) will work together in a coordinated, harmonious manner.

Your nervous system is made up of your brain, spinal cord, cranial nerves and more!  You’ve got billions of nerve fibers – and they make up the most powerful communications system in the universe – and it’s inside you.

A healthy nervous system is needed for your entire body and mind to work at its optimum. A subluxation is a distortion in your body structure and stresses your nervous system and interfere with its function. This interference can cause dis-ease (body-mind-energy malfunction) and dis-ease can in time result in disease. Your Doctor of Chiropractic is an expert at locating and correcting (adjusting) subluxations helping your nerve system/communications system function without interference. The result is improved function to every system of your body.

What a Loser!
The message is, don’t give up. Abraham Lincoln lost eight elections before becoming the 16th president of the United States. Here are some of his notable defeats.

  • In 1832, he ran for a seat in the Illinois State Legislature and lost. Two years later, he won and was re-elected three times.
  • In 1838, he aspired to become speaker of the state legislature and lost.
  • In 1840, he sought to become an elector in the Electoral College and lost.
  • In 1843, he ran for the House of Representatives and lost. When he ran again in 1846, he won.
  • In 1854, he ran for the U.S. Senate and lost.
  • In 1856, he sought the vice-presidential nomination at this party’s national convention and got fewer than 100 votes.
  • In 1858, he ran for the U.S. Senate again and lost again.

Finally, he ran for president in 1860, and things turned out far differently for him and for the nation. The rest, as they say, is history.

Why has autism increased?
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) has “exploded” from one in 10,000 live births to as high as one in 32 births. It is an “epidemic.” It can’t be caused by genes, there is no such thing as a genetic epidemic – genes don’t change that quickly. What is causing this growth of this brain damaging illness autism?

The culprits are environmental toxins – poisons, and the many chemicals that causes damage to the brains of developing babies (in-utero as well as after birth). The most common chemicals associated with autism are mercury and aluminum that are found in childhood vaccines. That is why thousands upon thousands of parents have said that their baby was normal and changed after receiving “well-baby” vaccines. (1)

Other toxins that have been implicated in autism include TylenolT (acetaminophen) given to babies before and after shots and the weedkiller RoundupT (glyphosate)that has tainted various vaccines. (2)

Questions and Answers
Q. Does your Doctor of Chiropractic have a medical degree?

A. Doctor of Chiropractic have chiropractic degrees. Instead of studying drugs and surgery, chiropractors spend thousands of hours mastering the ancient (and modern) science, and art and philosophy of spinal and structural analysis and adjustment/correction. Chiropractors are the only doctors that specialize in the location and correction of vertebral subluxations. Subluxations are a serious interference to body function and are often painless.  Chiropractors have helped millions of people for over a hundred years from nearly every condition to which the flesh is heir.

Sadly, most medical doctors are not taught about how beneficial chiropractic can be for so many of their patients and people needing chiropractic care stay with subluxations in their body.

Happily, things are changing in many good ways. More and more medical doctors are referring their patients for chiropractic care and many chiropractors have MDs and their families as patients – so there is hope for greater understanding.

Traditional Eating
Butter for a Healthy Heart and Healthier Babies

Did you know heart disease was rare in America at the turn of the century? Almost no one got heart attacks or a coronary. But then something stated to change. From 1920 to 1960 heart disease went from rare to America’s number one killer. What happened?

This may shock you: people turned away from traditional fats and oils.

Butter, a fat that was practically worshipped in many cultures nearly disappeared.  Butter consumption dropped over 80% and was replaced by “low fat” synthetic foods such as margarine and other unhealthy fats such as canola, corn oil, vegetable oil, and vege-spreads). Heart disease became rampant (as did cancer).

Butter is good for you! It’s especially good for your heart. Good quality butter has lots of vitamin A that the thyroid and adrenal glands need – both are important for heart, cardiovascular system and immune system health. Babies born to vitamin A deficient mothers have heart and blood vessel abnormalities. Babies with lots of Vitamin A have better structure, stronger, non-crowded teeth, healthier eyes, and less birth defects. Butter is America’s best and most easily absorbed source of vitamin A. Butter has lots of selenium and saturated fats that have anti-cancer qualities.

The best organic butter, cream, whole milk (avoid skim), whole yogurt and barn-free eggs for a healthy family is from your local farm. Stay away from corporate products – purchase local. There are many farmer’s markets that deliver.  It’s worth it! Your heart and many other organs will thank you.

Did you know?
There is a museum of failure? Included in the museum of 159 failed products and innovations, the touring Museum of Failure features displays Harley-Davidson perfume, Colgate frozen entrees, and Microsoft Zune.

There’s a basketball court in the US Supreme Court building? Located on the top floor of the US Supreme Court building, the former storage room was turned into an exercise area for courthouse employees in the 1940s before nets were eventually installed. It is now known as the “highest court in the land.”

The original Back to the Future time machine was a refrigerator? It wasn’t the gull-shaped winged DeLorean car. In early drafts of the script, the time machine was attached to a refrigerator and driven to the Nevada desert into a testing site for the atomic bomb.  Let’s praise re-writes.

Santa Claus was given an official pilot’s license in 1927? Yes, he’s really legal! When the big man in red makes his annual trip around the globe on Christmas Eve, you can sleep even more soundly knowing he’s legal to drive. In 1927, Santa Claus was given a pilot’s license from the US Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Aeronautics, William P. MacCracken.

McDonald’s once created bubblegum-flavored broccoli? In 2014, the fast-food chain developed bubblegum-flavored broccoli which turned out to be an utter failure. McDonald’s CEO Don Thompson admitted that kids were confused by the taste! This belongs in the Museum of Failure.

Words of Wisdom
I wonder how many people I’ve looked at all my life and never seen.

John Steinbeck

I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world. Albert Einstein

Researching Chiropractic
Chiropractic clinical case histories have been a regular feature of our patient newsletter since its inception. There seem to be no limit to the health problems that respond to chiropractic care. How many people suffering, on drugs, facing a life of limitation could be helped by chiropractic care? 

Probably most of them.

Chronic Migraines in a 15-Year-Old. 

A 15-year-old boy came to the chiropractic office complaining of migraine headaches They began when he was three years of age! At that age he was involved in a motor vehicle accident. When he came to our office, he was averaging one migraine every 3 weeks. Research has revealed that 10% of school-age children and 28% of adolescents (i.e., between 15-19 years of age) experience migraine headaches.

X-rays revealed a possible upper cervical (upper neck) vertebral subluxation involving C-1, the first vertebra beneath the skull and C-2, lies below C-1.

On the first visit, the patient was adjusted to remove/reduce his subluxations. Immediately the sharp pressure he was experiencing prior began to alleviate. Over the next 24-months he experienced only 5 migraine headaches. (3)

Asthma in a two-year-old.

Asthma in children is very prevalent in the general population with 9 million U.S. children under 18 being diagnosed with asthma. In 2005, an estimated 22.2 million people in the U.S. suffered from asthma. Asthma is the leading cause of school absence in the United States.

In this case a twenty-four-month-old boy suffering with asthma, chronic colds and respiratory issues since birth was brought in by his mother for chiropractic evaluation.

When he came in for care he was taking two medications prescribed by his pediatric pulmonologist, Flovent and Singulair, daily.

The child was delivered prematurely at 31 weeks by emergency cesarean section.

At the initial chiropractic examination, the patient was “fully vaccinated.”

Both upper and lower spinal areas showed evidence of subluxations.

Multiple subluxations and the subluxations were adjusted. The child’s care plan was initially set at 2-3 times a week for the initial four weeks however after the 4th visit the mother stopped giving her son the prescription medications due to his improvement in symptoms. As of this writing in the past two years the child has had no asthma symptoms and has reported only one cold.

Numbness and Burning in the Arm, Stiffness in the Neck

The patient suffered from chronic progressive cervical radiculopathy (pain and numbness radiating f

rom the neck) for two months prior to seeing a

chiropractor. The patient had numbness and a burning sensation in the right arm and stiffness in the lower cervical spine.

The patient received chiropractic care to adjust vertebral subluxations. After 11 visits the patient reported a significant improvement in numbness and tingling in her arm and improvement in quality of life. (5)

At the risk of offending, well, somebody (actually rednecks are great at laughing at themselves) here is You’re An EXTREME Redneck When…

1. You let your 14-year-old daughter smoke at the dinner table in front of her kids.

2.  The Blue Book value of your truck goes up and down depending on how much gas is in it.

3.  You’ve been married three times and still have the same in-laws.

4.  You think a woman who is out of your league bowls on a different night.

5.  You wonder how service stations keep their restrooms so clean.

6.  Someone in your family died right after saying, ‘Hey, guys, watch this.’

7.  You think Dom Perignon is a Mafia leader.

8.  Your wife’s hairdo was once ruined by a ceiling fan.

9.  Your junior prom offered day care.

10. You think the last words of the Star-Spangled Banner are ‘Gentlemen, start your engines.
