HAPPY NEW YEAR 2021! I have found the one thing that gets me through each day is a moment of quiet – prayer, meditation or a walk outdoors. Anything outdoors in nature lifts your spirit because of the abundance of  negative ions that bring positive energy to your being.
On the subject of ions – We are offering a new therapy in our office: IONIC FOOT BATHS which help release toxins, helps lower blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol and help calm you and also provide more energy. It’s a good way to relax and also feel great. Call to make an appointment.
GOOD NEWS- I am a grandmother for the first time (baby boy) and this little miracle has brought more joy than I have ever imagined. What a gift! Now I know what othe r grandparents have been raving about. I’ll try to be reasonable when wanting to share pictures 🙂
OUR 28- Day “DETOX with the DOC” has taken off- we have 14 participants this year and so far we are all doing well and feeling great. What would 28 days of NO SUGAR, ALCOHOL, CAFFEINE, DAIRY feel like? Join us at any time to make a difference in your life.
More and more people are turning away from symptom treatment and choosing natural ways of achieving and maintaining health.
Tired of taking drugs and the medical runaround? Welcome to the world of chiropractic and Nutrition Response Testing – discover how natural health can be.

Dancing? What does that have to do with chiropractic? Are you scared of germs? If you’re a germaphobe you’ll likely hate the article below. Also let’s hold off on the CT scans as much as possible. Send the Energy Drinks piece to someone you care about. Do you know who you are breathing in? This is fascinating. See more below.

You Are a Great Dancer

“Me a dancer?” you might say. “Have you seen me dance?” Ah, but you are a great dancer. Every one of your body parts, all of your billions and trillions of cells and the tissues and organs they make up are vibrating and dancing with their own unique frequency. It’s basic bio-physics.
That’s because every one of your parts is filled with energy. To be alive is to dance. But sometimes some of your parts are a little off and don’t harmonize as well as they should. The result could be body malfunction-dis-ease. Dis-ease is often characterized by symptoms including lack of energy, lack of balance and/or lack of harmony.
A major cause of this disharmony is a subluxation-a blockage in your body structure, usually your spine. Your energy that travels over your nerves and tissues is blocked or interfered with. Chiropractors specialize in locating and correcting subluxations-the result is that you dance better on the inside! For your dancing on the outside maybe you should take some lessons.

Worried About Germs?

Can we avoid listening to the news telling us that a terrible, horrible, invisible virus is going to get us? Probably not, we’re infected with bad news. But do this:
Take a deep breath. Tricked you! You just breathed in millions of germs. You really did. But don’t be scared. We are all covered, inside and out, with billions upon billions of germs: bacteria, viruses, fungi, etc., etc., etc. All the time. Yet 99.99999% of the time you’re not sick. Why? Because germs don’t make you sick.
When you are sick you make germs.
Germs only grow in a stressed, malnourished, toxic body. Germs cannot take hold in a well-functioning body. How do you ensure proper function?
Visit your chiropractor! When your body is free of subluxations it functions at closer to 100%. You digest and absorb food better, you have less stress and you detoxify more effectively. Come in for chiropractic care for the best protection against germs, and bring your kids and grandparents in too!
PS. Don’t forget to avoid sugar, refined carbs and watching the news. Feed your family organically-grown foods that are free of harmful toxins. Purchase milk, eggs, butter, cheese and meats from organic small farms. Do you think it’s hard to find them? Hardly! If you can get those foods in Manhattan, you can get them near you.

CT Scans

Many doctors love them and find them useful. However, CT scans (CAT scans), while they look great, have a down side: exposing the patient to hundreds or thousands times more radiation than typical X-rays. Some companies are selling whole body CT scans to the general public but the intense radiation may cause cancer years later.
Avoid CT scans as much as possible and seek alternative care that often does not require these scans to get good results. One whole body scan carries as much radiation as 900 chest X-rays. William Faloon from Life Extension magazine writes:
The problem is that the explosion in unnecessary CT scans has been going on every year. If we carry this back just ten years, this means that 150,000 Americans are facing horrific deaths from CT scan-induced cancers. (1)

Questions and Answers About Chiropractic

Question: Why should I bring in my children for a chiropractic exam?
Answer: You get your child’s teeth checked for cavities. What about getting their spine and body structure checked for subluxations? Children need chiropractic care, especially with all their physical activity and stress in today’s stress-filled world. Children under chiropractic care concentrate better, do better at school and are healthier and happier.

Nourishing Traditions

Energy Drinks?
Energy drinks-especially the tiny “shots” at the convenience store that promise to get rid of your “2:30 feeling”-are pumped full of synthetic caffeine. This “fake” caffeine does not come from any of Mother Nature’s sources. It comes from a chemistry lab. Manufacturers love the fake stuff because it’s potent and much cheaper than the real thing.
Even worse are the lab chemicals themselves. One of the popular ways to make synthetic caffeine uses a highly toxic cocktail of chemicals, including:
  • Trichloroethylene (TCE) – a chlorinated hydrocarbon commonly used as an industrial solvent. It’s so powerful the Air Force uses it to clean jet engines. Banned in Europe as a known cancer-causing chemical, it is perfectly legal to use in the United States.
  • Sodium cyanide – a highly toxic, colorless salt used in gold mining to strip gold from rock.
  • Sulfuric acid – a strong mineral acid used in car batteries, ore processing, fertilizer manufacturing and oil refining.
  • Benzene – a known cancer-causing chemical used as an industrial solvent and in the production of drugs, plastics, synthetic rubber and dyes.

Words of Wisdom

One should either be a work of Art, or wear a work of Art. – Oscar Wilde
99% of failures come from people who make excuses. – George Washington

Infant Mortality and Vaccinations

The U.S. has the highest infant mortality rate and highest vaccination rate of all industrialized countries, with more American children dying at birth and in their first year than in any other comparable nation-and more than half of those who survive develop at least one chronic illness. By contrast, Japan has the healthiest children and the highest “healthy life expectancy” in the world-and the least vaccinated children of any developed country.
  • Japan has no vaccine mandates, instead recommending vaccines that are either “routine” (covered by insurance) or “voluntary” (self-pay).
  • Japan does not vaccinate newborns with the hepatitis B (Hep B) vaccine, unless the mother is hepatitis B positive.
  • Japan does not vaccinate pregnant mothers with the tetanus-diphtheria-acellular pertussis (Tdap) vaccine.
  • Japan does not give flu shots to pregnant mothers or to six-month-old infants.
  • Japan banned the MMR vaccine, instead offering an MR vaccine.
  • Japan does not require the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine. (3)

Did You Know?

Einstein’s second-best idea? Albert Einstein once said that his second-best idea (after the theory of relativity) was soft-boiling an egg while he was cooking his soup so that he’d have two meals but only have one pot to clean.
eBay’s first sale? The first item sold on eBay was a broken laser pointer. Mark Fraser was apparently aware of the fact that he was getting a broken laser pointer when he purchased it for $14.83 from eBay’s founder Pierre Omidyar in 1995.

Researching Chiropractic

Chiropractic clinical case histories have been a regular feature of our patient newsletter since its inception. There seems 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.
Gastro-esophageal reflux disease. A 4-month-old baby girl with GERD was brought by her mother for chiropractic care. The mother reported the child had multiple episodes of reflux and vomiting per day. She received chiropractic and cranial care and her mother reported a large bowel movement and a longer than normal sleep the day after the 1st visit.
The baby continued care 2x/week for 2 weeks and 1x/week for the next 4 weeks. By the second visit her mother reported that the vomiting and reflux had decreased. Within 3 weeks she had no more reflux or vomiting. (4)
Improved behavior, a reduction in violent outbreaks in a 10-year-old boy. This is the case of a 10-year-old boy with behavioral issues, including dramatic changes from a calm manner to suddenly violent actions. He was also reported to have difficulty sleeping due to emotional detachment disorder and frequently suffered from panic attacks.
His mother also reported that he had difficulty noticing when he was sufficiently full following eating. His behavioral volatility caused him to be suspended from school.
Upper cervical, thoracic and lumbopelvic subluxations were discovered in this case. He received spinal adjustments.
His changes were recorded through the Measure Yourself Medical Outcome Profile (MYMOP) questionnaires over the course of his treatment. A reduction in a MYMOP score of 6/6 to 16/6 for behavior and violent outbreaks was measured after 8 adjustments. Further improvements were noticed with sleep and anxiety, as well as a dramatically improved awareness of feeling full after eating. (5)
Reflux, irritability and more in 7-month-old boys. This is the case of two seven-month-old premature fraternal twin boys with chronic reflux, breastfeeding difficulties, general irritability, excessive crying, plagiocephaly, and scaphocephaly who were presented by their mother for chiropractic care.
The children received spinal and cranial adjustments and after 8 weeks of care the mother reported a decrease in severity of the twins’ reflux, breastfeeding difficulties and irritability. At 16 weeks of chiropractic care the twins’ reflux had ceased and their cranial symmetry had markedly improved. (6)
In my practice, I have helped numerous children with bed-wetting symptoms by adjusting their subluxated sacrum; ADHD behaviors, eczema, constipated and colicky infants with nutrition support as well.
