Orleans, ON K4A 4X4
Welcome to the Doctor’s Report!
MY GRANDFATHER was a
SHIP BUILDER in Halifax.
He started at the bottom, eventually HEAD OVER THE DOCK YARDS.
I heard that Grandpa was a great man.
But I NEVER KNEW HIM.
He struggled with BACK PAIN -
Eventually he couldn’t WALK.
PEAK OF HIS CAREER, 50 YEARS OF AGE
My grandfather had SPINAL SURGERY -
And DIED the NEXT DAY!
My Grandfather LOST DECADES OF LIFE because of something
But HE DIDN’T KNOW!!
Tonight is about YOU KNOWING!
You may wonder
WHY you have to come to this report, and
WHY you can’t just see your x-rays and get started with your care.
If you’re a SPOUSE here, you’re probably wondering that even more.
The reality is i’ve SEEN YOUR XRAYS.
I have ONE SHOT
To CHANGE your LIFE!
To SAVE your LIFE!
I am NOT here to SELL you on CHIROPRACTIC CARE.
I’ll share WHAT WE DO and WHY
Then outline our RECOMMENDATIONS
& YOU’LL DECIDE if you want that.
What are you WILLING TO DO to get well?
It’s going to take a TREMENDOUS AMOUNT of COMMITMENT and DISCIPLINE for YOU to GET WELL!
We analyzed your spine
For STRUCTURE & FUNCTION
How it’s ALIGNED & how it MOVES.
From the FRONT, you must be STRAIGHT.
From the SIDE, you need these 3 CURVES.
You have 24 VERTEBRAE that should MOVE FREELY.
That gives you FULL RANGE of MOTION – FLEXIBILITY – in your SPINE
IF your SPINE IS ALIGNED and MOVING properly,
There’s NO STRESS to the DISCS & JOINTS.
THEN your SPINE DOESN’T BREAK DOWN!
Your SPINE should be HEALTHY for 100 + YEARS!
IF your spine IS ALIGNED and MOVING properly,
There’s NO TENSION on your spinal cord
THEN your NERVE SYSTEM’s RELAXED inside your spine!
That’s important because
Your BRAIN, BRAIN STEM,
SPINAL CORD, & 33 PAIRS OF NERVES-
Go to every ORGAN, TISSUE, & CELL in your body.
INFORMATION or LIFE flows ABOVE, DOWN, INSIDE, OUT.
For your body to be HEALTHY -
You need MAXIMUM COMMUNICATION
Through your SPINAL CORD!
Q: How many parents here?
2 HALF CELLS unite at CONCEPTION to
Form 1 CELL.
GOD BREATHES LIFE into 1 CELL -
That has POWER to create
An entire HUMAN BEING – you and me!
That 1 CELL begins to DIVIDE.
1ST ORGAN SYSTEM created is your BRAIN & SPINAL CORD!
That NERVE SYSTEM directed DEVELOPMENT of your entire body!
That 1 CELL DIVIDES into thousands of types of cells,
Forming DIFFERENT ORGAN SYSTEMS - all highly regulated.
In 9 MONTHS – you’ve gone from 1 CELL - to 9 TRILLION CELLS!
That's the 8 lb miracle you see at birth!
God breathed LIFE into your body.
The POWER that CREATED your body
My 4th child, LUKE, was born (3 years ago).
Within moments of birth - he started to breathe
Then he’s eating - 1st time EVER!
Q: Who taught him how to breathe? How to eat?
A: That ABOVE-DOWN-INSIDE-OUT POWER!
That AMAZING POWER DOESN’T GO AWAY!
That POWER’s STILL THERE and continues to DEVELOP Luke!
We need to LOVE and FEED our children - they GROW.
But we have NO CONTROL how they turn out physically.
Luke’s (30 lbs) now.
In a few years he'll be my size – a 100 TRILLION CELLS!
That's you and me!
100 TRILLION CELLS -
Organized into ORGAN SYSTEMS -
COORDINATED by - your nerve system!
Your NERVE SYSTEM - BRAIN & SPINAL CORD - Controls function.
If your spine is ALIGNED and MOVING properly,
Your SPINAL CORD’s RELAXED inside your spine.
COMMUNICATION between BRAIN & BODY happens at 100%.
You need MAXIMUM COMMUNICATION
From the BRAIN -
Down the BRAINSTEM -
To the SPINAL CORD -
To the NERVES -
To every ORGAN, TISSUE, CELL
For your BODY to be - HEALTHY.
That allows NORMAL FUNCTION -
Your heart beating,
Immune system overcoming infection.
You need MAXIMUM COMMUNICATION ABOVE-DOWN-INSIDE-OUT.
Your body’s CONSTANTLY ADAPTING!
If you go for a run, your
Heart beats faster,
You need more oxygen to the muscles.
ALL FUNCTION - is CONTROLLED by your - nerve system.
REGENERATION is your body CONSTANTLY
Repairing and replacing cells - EVERY DAY.
Your body has 100 TRILLION CELLS.
Every 24 hours your body has to repair or replace 180 BILLION CELLS!
IF ALL your cells that DIE TODAY are REPLACED,
THEN you’re RE-CREATED into LIFE.
IF ONLY PART of your cells are REPLACED,
Because of PRESSURE on your SPINAL CORD,
Q: Are you moving towards LIFE- or -
Moving towards DEATH?
A: Your body’s DYING!
Your body’s INCREDIBLE!
SMALL INTESTINE – FULLY connected to your BRAIN -
Replaced every 2 WEEKS!
LIVER – replaced every 8 WEEKS!
Scientists say your body has the ABILITY to
Replace EVERY CELL - every 2 to 3 years! AMAZING!
BUT ONLY IF - there’s MAXIMUM COMMUNICATION
Through your SPINAL CORD!
So we have FUNCTION, REGENERATION,
And finally HEALING.
Q: If I CUT MY HAND, and I need stitches.
It’s NOT the stitches that heal me.
My BODY’s going to heal my hand, yes?
A: That POWER’s ALREADY IN ME - to HEAL ME!
If you have kids, they’re going to scrape their hands & knees.
Q: Are you worried they're not going to heal?
A: No! Their POWER’s flowing - ABOVE-DOWN-INSIDE-OUT.
YOUR BODY has this AMAZING CAPACITY to heal itself!
When your BRAIN’s communicating FULLY with your BODY,
And your BODY’s communicating FULLY with your BRAIN,
Your BODY will HEAL very quickly.
99.99 % of the time - your body HEALS ITSELF!
You're exposed to PHYSICAL stress,
CHEMICAL stress, EMOTIONAL stress
But your body HEALS ITSELF.
One example of PHYSICAL STRESS is BACTERIA
We've all been breathing in MILLIONS of bacteria today.
I could culture all kinds of DEADLY BACTERIA INSIDE YOU right NOW!
BUT your IMMUNE SYSTEM's been killing those bacteria.
Most of us will wake up perfectly fine.
If you do get sick, a little rest, time, get adjusted,
Your immune system kicks in, and
YOUR BODY HEALS ITSELF - ABOVE-DOWN-INSIDE-OUT.
The only time that DOESN'T HAPPEN is with TRAUMA:
IF you get hit by a bus, and you have body parts all over,
You need to go to a HOSPITAL.
Where PHYSICIANS who work in an outside-in model,
Can sew you back up, stuff you full of drugs, and save your life.
Q: Is that a good thing?
A: Absolutely! That's Emergencies.
Or you're in crisis:
Maybe you've been burning the candle at both ends,
You have physical stress, emotional stress,
You're STRESSED TO THE MAX and
Your body's NOT able to recover.
IF you have a BACTERIAL INFECTION, double pneumonia.
And you're going to die.
Q: If a physician could give you an antibiotic and save your life,
Is that a good thing?
I was a paramedic in Ottawa for several years.
I saw many INJURIES - CRISIS.
One man had a HEART ATTACK, went into CARDIAC ARREST – DIED!
We shocked his heart many times, lots of drugs, CPR, breathed for him.
Surgeons made new arteries for his heart.
Here's a guy - DEAD one day.
The next day he’s sitting up in bed – ALIVE – talking with me!
We see those things, and think - WOW!
IF that system works for CRISIS and TRAUMA -
THEN - I'll use that CRISIS CARE SYSTEM - to KEEP ME HEALTHY.
THAT'S WHERE WE GO WRONG!!
Q: IF your house is on FIRE, who do you call?
A: Fire department.
They do EXTREME THINGS to SAVE the house - WHATEVER it takes.
Q: But the next day, who do you call?
A: Insurance. Building contractors.
They have to REBUILD THE HOUSE from INSIDE-OUT.
The MEDICAL SYSTEM - is THE DOMINANT HEALTH CARE MODEL.
It's a DISEASE CARE MODEL.
It's all about TREATING SYMPTOMS.
We operate in a TOTALLY DIFFERENT MODEL of health,
Called a VITALISTIC MODEL.
Our goal is to REBUILD YOUR BODY - ABOVE-DOWN-INSIDE-OUT,
Using that AMAZING POWER God put inside your body.
There's room for that OUTSIDE-IN PHILOSOPHY.
But it is NOT “HEALTH CARE”!!
It's about CRISIS, EMERGENCIES, treating SYMPTOMS.
Q: Does that make sense?
When you look at your x-rays,
Your spine should be ALIGNED & MOVING properly.
Big holes for the NERVES and
Big hole for the SPINAL CORD.
IF your spine is SUBLUXATED or MISALIGNED,
There’ll be SWELLING in the DISCS,
INFLAMMATION in the JOINTS.
Then MUSCLE SPASM, SCAR TISSUE, & STIFFNESS.
Most importantly, this puts
PRESSURE or TENSION on your SPINAL CORD
Which CUTS OFF HEALING to your body!
MANY STRESSES throughout life MISALIGN your spine.
It’s your HABITS, your POSTURE, your JOB.
It’s the IMPACTS we've all gone through!
Car accidents, sports injuries, lifting wrong,
Falling down stairs, off our bicycles.
Luke’s (3 years old), he's learning to walk - he’s running,
He's FALLING - probably 30 times a day!
Luke was standing - fell backward - loud thump.
He cried for a moment - then walking again.
But he’s walking with his LEG TURNED OUT - the next few days.
That fall on his TAILBONE shifted the PELVIS!
Q: What happens if he walks the rest of his LIFE with a leg turned out?
A: It'll destroy his hips, knees, low back over a lifetime.
HIP & KNEE REPLACEMENT
SPINE FUSES, can’t WALK eventually.
Q: But that's not my main concern.
Will this affect the NERVES in his low back?
It’ll cut off HEALING for everything waist down,
POWER to his LEGS
It's a huge deal!
Most parents would – NEVER - EVEN - KNOW - there's a problem!
Q: Isn’t it better for Luke, he's getting checked every week?
CORRECTED RIGHT AWAY
Instead of ALLOWING him to GROW SICK?
I've been in practice 20 YEARS.
Now I understand - most of the damage in adults -
BEGAN with CHILDHOOD INJURIES!
BIRTH - is the #1 TRAUMA we've all experienced!
Hard on moms, but especially babies!
Your baby's head has to TURN 180 DEGREES BACKWARD(demo-spine)
During birth, while under EXTREME PRESSURE.
If your baby doesn't come out –
Doctors are taught to PULL your baby’s head!
Luke was 8 lbs at birth.
Q: Imagine someone PICKING UP YOUR NEW BORN - BY THE HEAD!
A: We'd NEVER do that!!
But that's less than 8 LBS of PULLING on your baby's neck.
Imagine 20 LBS - of PULLING on your baby's neck!
That’s still considered a NORMAL hospital birth!
If that doesn't work, the next steps are
SUCTION CUPS or -
FORCEPS - giant pliers, or -
Up to 100 LBS-OF PULLING on your baby's neck!
And MOST CHILDREN are - NEVER - CHECKED at birth!
One German medical doctor – studied 1000 “NORMAL hospital births” -
& found 80% of NEWBORNS had SUBLUXATION in the UPPER NECK.
Most common symptoms were in eyes, ears, nose and throat.
That's why my mission is EVERY CHILD – is CHECKED
By a chiropractor - right after birth!
I CHECKED LUKE within MOMENTS of birth.
To see if there was DAMAGE from the BIRTH process.
26 hour of labour.
Luke was backwards.
Hard on my wife,
But especially Luke.
Q: Isn’t it better for Luke
I STARTED CORRECTING the damage RIGHT AWAY?
No scar tissue,
No effect on his SPINAL CORD,
No disruption of HEALING.
Q: Don't we WANT our CHILDREN to be HEALTHY?
Let's look at the NECK.
When the CURVE IN YOUR NECK is present,
The DISCS in the front take 30% of the LOAD,
The JOINTS in the back take 70% of the LOAD.
When the curve’s present, there’s NO DEGENERATION in the spine
And the SPINAL CORD’s RELAXED.
A common stress to the spine is STATIC LOADING.
It’s SITTING behind a computer all day, texting, playing video games, being sedentary.
It causes LOSS OF THE CURVE or HEAD FORWARD POSTURE.
When the CURVE IS LOST or the HEAD GOES FORWARD,
The discs take 100% OF THE LOAD,
The DISCS DEGENERATE 300 TIMES FASTER!
The joints in the back stay healthy by MOVEMENT.
If you’re stuck in head forward position,
Cartilage doesn't get nutrients,
Waste products build up,
Cartilage breaks down.
Now you have DEGENERATIVE DISC DISEASE in the front,
DEGENERATIVE JOINT DISEASE in the back,
Causing ARTHRITIS OF THE SPINE.
When neck curve is lost, At 1st – MISALIGNMENT, no degeneration.
We call it phase 1.
PHASE 2: BONE SPURS form,
DISCS thin, HERNIATE, bulge, or break down.
If that's not corrected, your spine degenerates
At MULTIPLE LEVELS to PHASE 3:
ADVANCED DEGENERATIVE DISC & JOINT DISEASE,
These are terms you hear all the time.
PHASE 4 - your spine collapses and fuses:
Loss of mobility - is the #1 reason for a NURSING HOME
COLLAPSE of the spine - is the #1 PREDICTOR of EARLY DEATH
This is what KILLED MY GRANDFATHER.
Many of you’ve already been told you have ARTHRITIS of the spine!
Even though in a healthy spine, that shouldn't happen for 100 plus years, yet you're 20, 30, 40, and you have ARTHRITIS of the spine.
I’ve had MANY people who've - NEVER – had neck or back pain,
Yet we find SEVERE DAMAGE.
This can be PAINLESS too,
Just LOSS of MOBILITY,
Now I’m concerned about the ARTHRITIS -
That causes lots of pain and suffering.
But most importantly, your SPINAL CORD’s STRETCHED!
When your CURVE IS LOST,
Your SPINAL CORD’S STRETCHED - 5-7 cm – 2 1/2 inches!
That BLOCKS the SIGNALS between BRAIN and BODY!
Whether it's 5 - 10 - 15% REDUCTION -
You have DECREASED COMMUNICATION ABOVE-DOWN-INSIDE-OUT.
Your BRAIN’s NOT COMMUNICATING with your BODY.
Your BODY’s NOT COMMUNICATING with your BRAIN at 100%.
Tragically - at 1st – you NEVER have PAIN!
You have MISALIGNMENT – but NO PAIN.
You’re not getting ABOVE-DOWN-INSIDE-OUT – FULLY!
You’re LOOKING GOOD outside,
While you're body's ROTTING INSIDE!
That's called DIS-EASE.
You‘re ROTTING INSIDE
LOOKING GOOD OUTSIDE,
But you DON'T HAVE SYMPTOMS!
Q: What do people do - when they have dis-ease, no symptoms?
A: (whisper) NOTHING!
We’ve been told -
NO PAIN - NO PROBLEM!
AIN’T BROKE – DON’T FIX IT!
Ever hear that?
If you're checking your health - based on how you feel,
You're in TROUBLE!
We've been told -
We can RELY ON SYMPTOMS
To know if we’re HEALTHY.
That’s a LIE!
There’s absolutely no truth to that!
I'll prove it to you.
Q: What’s the #1 killer in the Western world?
A: HEART DISEASE.
Heart disease and cancer have been fighting for #1.
Both claim a HALF MILLION PEOPLE in North America each year.
Q: What’s the most common 1st SYMPTOM of heart disease?
A: Sudden death due to heart attack -
30-50% of the time!
The first time you’re AWARE you have heart disease -
Is when you DROP DEAD of a heart attack!
At the funeral, everybody’s in shock, saying,
“he was healthy, in great shape, exercised, ate well, physicals perfect
But he DROPPED DEAD of a HEART ATTACK.
He was FEELING FINE - now he's DEAD.”
Q: Was he HEALTHY or SICK?
A: He was SICK - he just didn't KNOW.
As a PARAMEDIC, I did CPR many times -
On people who were DEAD –
But FELT FINE the day before!
#2 killer is CANCER .
Cancer can be in the body for DECADES before symptoms.
Q: If cancer isn’t caught until symptoms are full-blown,
What are your chances of survival?
A: Not good.
Many people are DEAD WITHIN WEEKS of diagnosis!
My DAD - 59 years old – had NO SYMPTOMS when he was told
He had ADVANCED, AGGRESSIVE PROSTATE CANCER
That had SPREAD,
And he had LESS THAN 6 MONTHS TO LIVE.
My mom's been a PALLIATIVE CARE NURSE for many years.
She watched many people SUFFER TERRIBLE SIDE EFFECTS
From CHEMO and RADIATION - and DIE ANYWAY.
My Dad refused all that
Instead POURED LIFE into his body
Through the nerve system, diet, exercise, reducing stress –
GOD HEALED him - and he's still ALIVE 18 years later!
My children know their grandfather
Because he focused on ABOVE-DOWN-INSIDE-OUT!
The SURVIVAL RATES for the majority of cancers
HAVEN'T CHANGED - the last 30 years.
Q: Who wants to WAIT FOR SYMPTOMS?
Heart disease? Cancer?
Q: What’s the 3rd killer? Anybody know?
This is published in the top medical journals.
This is what medical doctors are saying about their own procedures:
A: 3rd Leading cause OF death
In Canada and the US,
According to the top medical journals, is
Reactions to drugs and medical error!
Researchers agree - at least
40,000 Canadians, will die - THIS YEAR
From ADVERSE DRUG REACTIONS
And MEDICAL ERROR!
That's the RIGHT DRUG - RIGHT TIME - RIGHT CONDITION.
It's not illicit drug use - not overdose - not wrong diagnosis.
That's when everything goes - RIGHT,
40,000 Canadians – DIE!
3rd leading cause of DEATH!
Life extension foundation did a similar study:
They're reporting 783,000 Americans,
About 80,000 Canadians
Are DYING from DRUG REACTIONS & ERRORS!
Drug reactions & errors are- #1 -
Leading cause of death!
Q: We’re treating DIS-EASE
With the leading cause of DEATH?
Is that a smart thing?
Doesn't that sound crazy?
Remember dis-ease - where you’re FEELING OKAY outside
But not doing well inside?
Dis-ease always turns to disease! With TIME!
Body’s ROTTING MORE body’s ROTTING MORE
LESS ABOVE-DOWN-INSIDE-OUT LESS ABOVE-DOWN-INSIDE-OUT
Eventually you go into CRISIS,
Because your body STOPS ADAPTING.
You wake up one day - you think because you slept wrong -
You have MIGRAINES for the next 3 months.
Or you pick up a piece of lint off the floor
And your BACK GOES OUT.
Or, this happens all the time,
As an ADULT you develop ALLERGIES or ASTHMA.
Or, ANXIETY, you can't walk out of the house.
Q: How does that happen?
A: You've had ABNORMAL ABOVE-DOWN-INSIDE-OUT - for YEARS!
MONTHS, YEARS, DECADES!
Eventually, DIS-EASE turns to DISEASE,
It's just a matter of TIME and symptoms.
Once you have symptoms,
Then you have disease,
Then you're in crisis.
So you're in CRISIS, you can't breathe.
Or you have so much anxiety you can't leave your house.
Q: What you do? Who do you see for help?
A: Your MEDICAL DOCTOR, your physician.
Q: What does your DOCTOR do?
A: Give you DRUGS.
Q: What are the drugs do?
A: Cover up the SYMPTOMS..
Q: What does that allow you to do?
A: It allows you to CARRY ON.
You're SICK - you JUST DON'T KNOW you're SICK.
If you keep stuffing yourself full of drugs,
You'll end up like the average 65 year old senior in Canada,
Taking 10-14 DIFFERENT MEDICATIONS EVERY DAY!
There is no such thing as a safe drug!
EVERY DRUG is TOXIC TO THE BODY, yes?
Eventually the drugs can't numb you enough
ORGAN SYSTEMS FAIL.
Q: Then what do you do?
Cut out the diseased organs!
If you get on this train its
DRUGS IN DRUGS IN
OUTSIDE IN OUTSIDE IN
Eventually OUTSIDE IN takes ORGANS OUT!
Q: And then you what?
A: YOU DIE!
You go into a nursing home, & NEVER come out!
So, your NECK’s too far forward,
With CRUSHING STRESS on your SPINAL CORD,
Your discs and joints are DEGENERATED.
Q: Are ANTI-INFLAMMATORIES going to do anything for that?
Q: PAINKILLERS? MUSCLE RELAXANTS?
Combinations of drugs?
Q: How about NEEDLES in there?
Q: MASSAGE the tight muscles?
Is that going to change this (head forward position)?
Q: How about a few CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENTS to loosen it up?
Q: What DO WE NEED TO DO - to FIX your spine?
A: We need to do PUT your CURVE BACK!
RESTORE your alignment!
Q: What does that do?
A: When we restore alignment it takes the
PRESSURE OFF your DISCS and JOINTS.
They STOP DEGENERATING.
Over a long time your discs and joints can actually - REGENERATE!
Most importantly, PRESSURE COMES OFF your SPINAL CORD,
Your spinal cord becomes relaxed.
Q: What does that mean?
A: That means that your BRAIN can COMMUNICATE with your BODY!
Now above-down-inside-out is working again.
Remember – that power IN YOU -
Is the POWER that CREATED YOU
From 1 cell - to 100 trillion cells!
That POWER maintains you being ALIVE!
It’s NOT some little power.
When we start TURNING your POWER ON,
Your body starts FUNCTIONING, REPAIRING, and HEALING - FULLY
That DISEASE GOES AWAY.
That's the goal!
When we RESTORE ALIGNMENT,
We take the PRESSURE OFF THE NERVE SYSTEM,
We ALLOW THE BODY TO HEAL the way God designed us to heal.
We’re MAXIMIZING LIFE to our body!
Q: Who wants to MAXIMIZE THEIR LIFE?
Q: How long SHOULD you be HEALTHY?
How long should you LIVE? How many YEARS?
A: (audience 78 men, 82 women).
I'm not talking about SURVIVAL RATES
After 20 YEARS OF SUFFERING with some chronic disease.
Q: I'm asking, how many years - HEALTHY?
A: GENETICISTS say the average person on this planet
Should be HEALTHY – 90 - 95 YEARS
No drugs, no disease - healthy.
PHYSIOLOGISTS say healthy – 80 - 112 years.
Your CREATOR in the Bible said in Genesis 6,
120 years will be the days of man's life.
Q: How many healthy 100 year olds do you know?
Healthy, strong, no drugs, no disease?
A: I don't know many!
When I was a medic, it was ROUTINE for people
To drop DEAD in their 40's & 50's.
If they were in their 60's, they were handing me
A grocery bag filled with MEDICATIONS.
So you've been CREATED TO LIVE for 120 YEARS.
Q: Who’s willing to give up the last 50 years? Anybody?
Give up those years because of BAD CHOICES?
As I get older, TIME IS MORE PRECIOUS.
I don't want to throw away the last 20 years
Because of BAD CHOICES!
It's the CHOICES you make EVERYDAY,
The CHOICES YOU MAKE TONIGHT!
How well this (spine) works - that allow you to get there!!
Q: But WHY is it - we’re supposed to live HEALTHY 120 years,
But we’re sticking TUBES in kid’s ears at age 3?
And PUFFERS to kids at 12?
HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE MEDICATION at 35?
CHOLESTEROL MEDICATION at 45?
HAPPY PILLS at 55?
And all the other pills in between?
And we’re supposed to be HEALTHY for 120 years?
That’s a good question, isn’t it?
Now we’re going to answer that question.
Q: Who wants to MAXIMIZE - EVERY - SINGLE - DAY?
NO MATTER HOW MUCH PAIN you’re in
We’re NOT CONCERNED about YOUR PAIN!
It doesn't mean we don't CARE about your pain.
Q: But do you think THE PAIN is the problem?
Or something CAUSING the pain?
A: Something CAUSING the pain -
That's our concern!
Our concern is -
How much DAMAGE is in your SPINE? And
How much PRESSURE is on your SPINAL CORD?
Our concern is -
Can we FIX your SPINAL CORD PROBLEM?
That's why you're here -
Can we FIX your SPINAL CORD PROBLEM?
Q: If I take a NERVE to your TOOTH, and CUT that NERVE,
What happens to your tooth?
A: It DIES, because it’s DISCONNECTED FROM THE BRAIN.
Q: If I cut the nerves to your RIGHT LEG - what happens to your leg?
A: You can’t stand on your leg - you don’t have any MUSCLE FUNCTION.
Q: If I touch that leg, could you FEEL that touch?
A: No, you LOSE FEELING to your leg.
Q: How many people are LOSING FEELING to their ARMS and LEGS?
A: People in this room!
These are NERVE PROBLEMS!
So you LOSE FUNCTION, you LOSE FEELING.
Q: If I BREAK THE BONES in that leg.
That leg’s disconnected from your brain.
Would your bones HEAL properly?
Q: What CONTROLS HEALING of your bones?
A: All HEALING in your body is controlled by - YOUR BRAIN!
Your LEG ACTUALLY DIES!
If people are PARALYSED, often doctors have to AMPUTATE the limb because of INFECTION - it NEVER HEALS, gangrene results!
So, if you cut the nerve to your TOOTH - it DIES.
If you cut the nerve to your LEG - it DIES.
Q: If you cut the nerves to your HEART, what happens to your heart?
A: It dies and YOU DIE!
Any part of the body that’s DISCONNECTED from the BRAIN – DIES!
Q: What if I don’t - cut the nerves to your stomach,
But I put PRESSURE on the nerves to your stomach?
Q: Will your stomach would get more or less nerve flow?
A: Less nerve flow.
Q: If your stomach’s getting less nerve flow,
Is your stomach healthy or sick?
A: It's sick!
Q: If your stomach’s sick,
Is it moving TOWARD LIFE or moving TOWARD DEATH?
A: It's DYING, because it’s DISCONNECTED from the brain!
Q: Is it that simple?
A: It's that simple!
You may have DIFFERENT SYMPTOMS.
It depends on WHERE the
PRESSURE is on your SPINAL CORD.
Q: Chiropractors are always concerned about neck problems. Why?
A: (It's at the top)
Q: If you have a neck problem, you may have what?
A: A whole body problem!
EVERYTHING below is affected!
PRESSURE on your SPINAL CORD in the UPPER NECK,
Affects HEAD FUNCTION – eyes, ears, nose, and throat.
It causes HEADACHES, MIGRAINES, problems with VISION,
SINUS problems, MIDDLE EAR problems, loss of BALANCE,
EAR INFECTIONS in children - things like that.
PRESSURE on your SPINAL CORD in the LOWER NECK
Causes NECK PAIN and STIFFNESS,
More importantly, it CHOKES OFF NERVE SUPPLY - POWER,
To your HEART and LUNGS!
That causes HEART PALPITATIONS, HEART PROBLEMS,
LUNG DISEASE, ASTHMA.
Q: NERVES in your LOWER NECK also control what?
A: Your ARMS!
Q: Some of you wake up at night,
And you can't feel what?
A: You CAN'T FEEL YOUR ARMS!
You wake up, your arm’s all numb, you shake it off, go back to sleep,
And think it's no big deal.
It's a HUGE DEAL!
Q: It shows your ARMS are DISCONNECTED from what?
A: Your BRAIN!
Q: What are the symptoms of a HEART ATTACK? You should know.
A: CHEST PAIN – affecting the HEART
SHORTNESS OF BREATH - affecting the LUNGS, and
PAIN going down the ARM??
Q: If your HEART’S DYING, why would you feel the pain down the ARM?
How’s it CONNECTED?
A: It's on the SAME CIRCUIT!
Q: If the lights in this room - and the lights in the back room
Are connected on the SAME CIRCUIT - and my circuit blows -
What's happens to all my lights?
A: They go out.
Q: Should I start CHANGING LIGHT BULBS?
A: No! I should FIX THE CIRCUIT by flipping the switch,
And the lights’ll come back on.
Q: What happens if all the lights go out in both rooms,
I grab my ladder and a big bag of light bulbs,
I change all the light bulbs in both rooms?
Q: Would that work?
Q: What would you think of me if I start changing light bulbs?
A: You'd say, i've heard about this clinic. They're very busy.
But I'm not sure this guy’s very bright! Right?
The ONLY way to fix this problem is - FIX THE CIRCUIT!
Q: Do you realize - our “health care” system
Is mostly just CHANGING - LIGHT BULBS?
Imagine coming here - you have NECK PAIN,
It's really bad, and you can't turn your neck.
You tell us, “I must have slept on the couch wrong.
It's happened a few times before, but this is definitely the worst.”
We ask you some questions:
Q: Does your pain go anywhere else?
A: “Yes, down my arm.
I've been having a little ARM NUMBNESS off and on for the last year.”
Q: Do you have OTHER HEALTH PROBLEMS?
A: “Well, i've had ASTHMA since I was a teenager.
My THRYOID’S LOW since my 20’s.
For the past 15 years - i've been having MIGRAINE HEADACHES.”
Q: Where do I KNOW you have a problem?
Where should I check?
What area can produce all those symptoms?
A: NECK. That's where those nerves come from.
Q: What if you go to your MEDICAL DOCTOR?
You say, “Doctor, I have neck pain,”
What are they – REQUIRED - to give you?
Q: If you have PAIN, you’ll get what?
Q: He'll say, “you have MUSCLE SPASM”
If you have muscle spasm, you’ll get what?
A: MUSCLE RELAXANT.
Robaxacet - combination drug.
You have NUMBNESS DOWN THE ARM.
I know you have PRESSURE & INFLAMMATION on your nerves.
So you'll get an ANTI-INFLAMMATORY.
VIOXX: 60,000 DIED!
Do you remember VIOXX?
It was the #1 anti-inflammatory a few years ago.
Q: It’s not on the market anymore - why?
A: It killed a lot of people!
HUGE RISE in heart attack deaths in ‘99 when introduced,
HUGE DROP in deaths when it was pulled off the market in 2004.
Researchers estimate (emphasize) 60,000 PEOPLE - DIED!
VIOXX is off the market.
Celebrex is the replacement, now the #1 anti-inflammatory.
For your ASTHMA you've had since your teens,
You have broncho-spasm - here's a broncho-dilator, Ventolin.
For your LOW THYROID - SYNTHROID, artificial hormone.
For those MIGRAINES - we don't know why they happen,
They can be severe - you’ll have a lot of pain.
You’ll be given a NARCOTIC, a really strong painkiller.
If you have a lot of pain, you’ll be DEPRESSED.
We'll give you an ANTI-DEPRESSANT.
We'll give you some HAPPY PILLS.
You'll STILL HAVE YOUR PAIN. Your migraines,
But you'll be happy, you won't be depressed.
Q: Does that sound that logical?
A: It's crazy!
Q: That's changing what?
A: Changing light bulbs!
Q: What did you think about light bulb changers?
A: Not very bright!
It's not getting to the CAUSE!
Problems in your MID BACK cause BACK PAIN,
And interfere with your DIGESTIVE ORGANS -
Stomach, liver, pancreas, large & small intestine.
A lot of people have problems in the low back.
Low back problems cause BACK PAIN and STIFFNESS,
Q: But pressure on the nerves interferes with what?
A: ABDOMINAL ORGANS
Q: Nerves in your low back also control what?
A: Your LEGS.
Some of you know that, right?
Pain, weakness, numbness, sciatica, paralysis in the legs.
Q: That's why people with low back problems lose what?
A: LEG FUNCTION!
Imagine you walk into a NURSING HOME -
(SNIFF SNIFF – they all smell the same, i've been in many!)
Walk up to a WOMAN IN A WHEEL CHAIR, she’s 65 years old.
Ask her, “Ma’am, how LONG have you had LOW BACK PAIN?”
Q: Do you think she’d say,
“It started 2 weeks ago and got really bad last week”?
A: No! She'd say,
What pain? I don't have any pain!
I don't FEEL anything NOW.
Doc it has been there for 30, 40 years.
But It wasn’t that big of a deal.
I USED TO have pain.
I’d use a HOT WATER BOTTLE or HEATING PAD.”
Maybe you use the MAGIC BEAN BAGS to FEEL BETTER.
Then she’d say,
But a couple times a year, I could hardly move.
I was bent over - in so much pain.
That’s when I’d see good old Doc Johnson.
Doc Johnson's been changing light bulbs in our family for 20 years.
He’d give me a couple big blue pills,
PAIN WENT AWAY - I’D FEEL GREAT!
But now I CAN’T WALK anymore.”
Q: Did she walk to bed one night - could feel her legs,
Then wake up the next morning and
Couldn’t feel her legs anymore?
Q: Did this HAPPEN OVER NIGHT?
She had a HEALTHY SPINE.
Something happened. She entered a PHASE 1.
In her teens & 20's, she started having LOW BACK PAIN.
Then PAIN down one leg – SCIATICA.
She WAS an athlete.
Eventually she stopped being an athlete –
Because she had so much pain.
She went from being a quick runner - to a slow runner -
To a quick walker - to a slow walker -
To walking with a cane - to walking with a walker -
Now she’s in a WHEEL CHAIR!
Because she went from a PHASE 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 IN HER LOW BACK!
Q: Her LEGS were disconnected from what?
A: Her BRAIN.
Q: NO MORE POWER to her legs,
No more what?
A: NO MORE LEGS!
If you spend an afternoon with me,
I can show you people with canes, walkers and wheel chairs.
Q: These are NOT LEG PROBLEMS, they're what?
A: LOW BACK problems.
Her legs don't work
Because they’re DISCONNECTED from her BRAIN.
You understand this now, but a lot of people don't.
Q: The nerves in the LOW BACK also control what?
A: ABDOMINAL ORGANS!
Ask her some more questions:
Q: “Ma'am, how's your LARGE INTESTINE working?
What would she tell me?
A: “Bad. I'm ALWAYS CONSTIPATED,
The doctor gives me LAXATIVES,
That gives me DIARRHEA,
Then he gives me some ANTI-DIARRHEALS.
Q: If she takes drugs to control her large intestine,
Is her large intestine HEALTHY?
Q: Is she MOVING TOWARDS LIFE, or
MOVING TOWARDS DEATH?
A: She's DYING!
Q: Her large intestine‘s DISCONNECTED from what?
A: Her BRAIN!
So her legs aren't working, her large intestine’s not working.
EMPHASIZE BRAIN – SPINAL CORD - CIRCUIT
WOMAN IN NURSING HOME: LOSING BLADDER
Ask her about her BLADDER:
Q: Ma'am, how's your bladder working?
What’s she going to say?
A: “Bad!” - She has NO CONTROL!
Q: What’s she wearing?
A: Depends, diapers, catheter bag.
Her bladder fills up, empties - she has NO CONTROL.
Q: Does that sound normal?
Does that sound healthy?
Q: If you drink 8 glasses of water before bed,
What happens in the middle of the night?
A: You'll wake up and go to the bathroom, right?
Q: What wakes you up?
A: The liquid fills up in your bladder, sends a signal
Through your SPINAL CORD to your BRAIN,
And your brain wakes you up.
No matter how tired you are, middle of a dream,
You wake up and go to the bathroom.
Q: What’s happened to her CIRCUIT?
A: Her circuit’s destroyed!
Q: The signals can't reach what?
A: Her BRAIN.
Q: Her bladder’s DISCONNECTED from what?
A: Her BRAIN.
No more CONNECTION, no more BLADDER!
I see this in CHILDREN!
I have 5,10,18 year olds - coming in -
Still WETTING THE BED every night!!
The signals aren't making it up to the brain, no more bladder control!
LEGS CRAMPS, GROWING PAINS, RESTLESS LEGS
This is SCIATICA in KIDS – NERVE TENSION, NERVE PRESSURE!
This woman in the wheelchair:
The NERVES in her low back control her UTERUS.
Q: What would she tell me about her UTERUS -
If she was a typical women, above age 50,
In 50% of cases –
What would she tell me?
A: She'd say, “I don't have a uterus anymore!”
A: “I used to have one, but i've had major problems.”
My doctor said,
You don't need it anymore,
We'll take it out of you.
We'll give you a bunch of hormone pills.
Don't worry about the pills,
They'll reduce your risk of cancer.”
Q: Is that true?
A: Researchers discovered recently
The hormone pills don't reduce cancer - they CAUSE CANCER!
Oops, hope no one notices!
The drug companies have been lying to us
Since the 70's when they found out!
This - woman in the wheelchair - doesn't have her uterus anymore.
Q: Do you have ANY SPARE PARTS in your body?
I was taught in school the APPENDIX was a SPARE PART.
Some people have to get it removed.
Nobody knows what it does.
It doesn't matter if you have one.
New research is showing an increase in colon cancer
If the appendix is removed,
Linking it to the immune system,
It’s a reservoir for healthy bacteria in case you’re sick.
It's just like TONSILS.
In my parent's & grandparent’s generation NO ONE has tonsils.
In my generation, half of us have tonsils, half don’t.
Children now don’t even know what tonsils are –
Because they still have them!
Q: When I was a child - why did I want mine out?
A: It was a week off school, and eat what?
All the ice cream you could eat!
You remember the story?
Q Why doesn’t that story exist anymore?
Q: Do you think that tonsils haven't worked for thousands of years -
And suddenly - in the past 20 years - tonsils started working?
Is that what happened?
We finally figured out - tonsils are part of the immune system!
When we take them out of kids, it make them sick!
Oops, hope no one notices!
You DON’T have any spare parts!
Q: Can you imagine God creates this woman - in HIS IMAGE.
To LIVE 120 years.
With a heart to last 120 years,
Stomach 120, and so on.
Then he gets to the UTERUS and says,
“Oh my, I have a big problem!
I’ve created the body to last 120 years,
But I can only create a uterus to last 50 years.
I’ve been up the past 6 nights and I can’t figure this out.
I'm God - so with all my wisdom,
I'll create a “DISPOSABLE uterus” that’ll last 50 years.
I’ll create SURGEONS to remove this DISPOSABLE uterus
I'll create DRUG COMPANIES
Who’ll create DRUGS better than the ones i’ve put in the body,
And sell women HORMONES,
And women won’t have to worry about a thing.”
Q: Can God can create a uterus to last more than 50 years?
A: God designed ALL YOUR PARTS to last your WHOLE LIFE!
Q: But people are LOSING PARTS
Because the parts are DISCONNECTED from what?
A: The BRAIN!
Ask this woman,
Q: When did your uterine problem start?
What’d she say?
A: She'd say, “When I was a TEENAGER, and my cycle started,
I'd have MASSIVE PAIN in my UTERUS.”
Q: “I'd have pain in my uterus and _________” PAIN WHERE ELSE?
A: LOW BACK.
Q: “And then I'd feel the pain__________” SHOOT DOWN WHAT?
A: My LEGS.
Q: How can a teenage girl go through a cycle in her uterus
And feel it shoot down her legs?
How’s it connected?
A: It’s on the SAME CIRCUIT.
Q: What's happening to the circuit?
A: Circuit’s destroyed!
Q: Guess what the light bulb changers came up with?
A: Brilliant idea!
Let's prescribe BIRTH CONTROL PILLS!
If we mess around with the hormones in these teenage girls,
We alter the function & the girls won’t feel the symptoms.
Q: Does that sound like a good idea?
All the men are thinking:
“I’m SO glad I don't have a uterus!
I don't have to worry about - losing the lower half of my body!”
Q: What is the most popular drug in North America for men 45+?
Starts with a V or a C...
A: Viagra, or the newest version – Cialis!
The nerve supply for your SEX ORGANS
Comes from your LOW BACK, L2-3-4.
Q: How many men ignore their BACK PAIN thinking its no big deal!
Q: What’s the #1 cancer today?
A: PROSTATE CANCER!
PROSTATITIS = inflammation
Then GROWTH of the prostate.
Poor healing many years -
Eventually PROSTATE CANCER!
So MEN are LOSING EVERYTHING from waist down too!
An MRI shows the SPINAL CORD.
On the left, good BRAIN-BODY COMMUNICATION.
Good FUNCTION in the organs,
STRONG immune system.
Moving towards HEALTH and LIFE!
Q: What’s the problem on the right?
A: PRESSURE on the SPINAL CORD!
Q: This happen overnight?
Probably took 30 YEARS!
Many are told by their doctors: - “you have
DEGENERATIVE DISC DISEASE
ARTHRITIS of the spine
It’s NORMAL AGING!
Nothing can be done
When it's bad we'll give you DRUGS & SURGERY
That's NOT TRUE!
I have people in their 60's with
HEALTHY SPINES like this (left).
I have people that are in their 30's with
SEVERE DAMAGE like this (right).
In fact, we have a HEALTHY SPINE in the lower part (T/s)
NO PRESSURE on the spinal cord,
And SEVERE DAMAGE in the neck
Both parts the same age!
This person, probably went through a WHIPLASH INJURY
In EARLY CHILDHOOD YEARS,
It was NEVER DETECTED, NEVER CORRECTED,
And was ALLOWED TO BREAK DOWN all these years!
This person’s probably has a lot of PAIN now.
Q: Would he have wanted to know about this problem - 30 years ago?
A: That's why I BELIEVE EVERYONE should be CHECKED,
Even if they have NO SYMPTOMS.
I love helping people who come here like this person on the right
They’re VERY SICK.
I start adjusting.
Even a LITTLE PRESSURE OFF the spinal cord is huge!
They start coming BACK TO LIFE – I love that!
The MIRACLES I see every day are what bring me to work!!
But the 1 thing I want to do better,
Is EARLY DETECTION OF PROBLEMS,
CHECKING EVERYONE EARLY IN LIFE!
Even better, I want EVERY CHILD CHECKED at BIRTH!
EVERY CHILD KEPT HEALTHY - for their WHOLE LIFE!
That's PREVENTION, that's GOOD STEWARDSHIP.
Q: Who’s going to have MORE PAIN?
A: (One on the right.)
Q: Who’s going to have MORE DISEASE?
A: (One on the right.)
Q: Who’s going to be on MORE MEDICATIONS?
A: (One on the right.)
Q: Severe infection, who’s more likely to DIE?
A: (One on the right.)
Q: Who is going to LIVE LONGER, HEALTHIER?
A: (One on the left.)
I know who I want to be!
Let’s get more specific.
HEALTHY LOW BACK.
White squares are the VERTEBRAE.
PELVIC BONES are level.
When you see this - don’t just say - wow, it’s straight, looks great.
Q: What INSIDE these bones?
A: Your SPINAL CORD.
Your SPINAL CORD’s like an ELECTRIC CORD.
Q: What's inside an electric cord?
Q: What flows through wires?
Picture an ELECTRIC CORD inside the spine.
Q: When your spine is aligned & moving properly,
Your SPINAL CORD – your POWER CORD - is good or bad?
A: It’s good, right?
Power flows FROM THE BRAIN - through your CORD - to your BODY.
This is an UNHEALTHY SPINE.
This is BAD.
Q: What do you see here?
A: It’s crooked, it’s curved, it’s low on this side.
That’s going to break down the spine
Cause arthritis - disc & joint disease.
Q: What’s happening to the SPINAL CORD?
Pressure or no pressure?
Q: If there's pressure here, what’ll be affected?
CIRCUIT here - controls what?
A: LEGS and LOWER ABDOMINAL ORGANS. Right?
Q: What if this person says, “I FEEL GREAT”.
But I see this on x-ray.
What should I tell her?
Q: I’m glad you're feeling well, but what?
A: You're not going to!
Because your low back is breaking down!
Once this breaks down to a certain point,
You WILL start feeling it!
You’ll feel it in you LOW BACK.
Q: Where else will break down?
A: Your legs - and your lower abdominal organs
Nerves in your low back control everything waist down. Right?
Q: Nerves in your UPPER NECK are close to what?
A: Your BRAIN.
Q: So nerves in your upper neck control what?
ALL HEALING for your body passes through this one area!
This x-ray is the neck from the side.
Face is on the right.
Back of the head’s on the left.
The neck has a HEALTHY CURVE – C-SHAPED.
When the neck is CURVED,
There's NO PRESSURE on the SPINAL CORD
POWER can get from BRAIN to BODY.
This is DAVID. David’s 30 years old.
Q: What’s David's problem?
A: His neck is BAD, it’s STRAIGHT, his HEAD’S FORWARD.
That causes the spine to BREAK DOWN -
Disc & joint degeneration, osteoarthritis.
But we’re not worried about that.
Q: What’s happening to his POWER CORD? His SPINAL CORD?
Pressure or no pressure?
HUGE KEY: DON’T TELL SYMPTOMS - HEALTHY OR SICK?
PRESSURE ON SPINAL CORD = SICK, UNHEALTHY BODY
Q: I didn’t tell you his SYMPTOMS
Is David HEALTHY or SICK?
A: SICK! Why?
Q: If YOUR SPINAL CORD’s CRUSHED - are you HEALTHY?
Q: If YOUR SPINAL CORD’s STRETCHED - are you HEALTHY?
Q: It’s CUTTING OFF POWER between what?
A: Your BRAIN and - EVERYTHING else.
This is the neck cut in two.
Face is on the right.
Back of the head’s on the left.
Squares are the VERTEBRAE.
White cushions are the DISCS.
Q: What’s this white tube?
A: Your SPINAL CORD –
Your POWER CORD.
When your NECK is CURVED – C-SHAPED
There's NO PRESSURE on your SPINAL CORD –
Spinal cord’s RELAXED.
NO PRESSURE means
ALL POWER and HEALING from you BRAIN –
Passes through your SPINAL CORD -
To your BODY –
There are 4 phases of breakdown.
PHASE 1 is where your CURVE IS LOST.
Your SPINAL CORD STRETCHES like an elastic band.
Q: If I stretched an elastic band, what happens to the middle part?
A: It THINS OUT.
Q: Will MORE or LESS POWER get through the THIN PART?
A: LESS POWER
Q: Is this person is HEALTHY or SICK?
Q: If this is not fixed, will he stay like this for the rest of his life?
A: No, he'll get worse – move on to PHASE 2.
PHASE 2, we see more break down.
This is a DISC BULGE or HERNIATION.
Q: What’s happening here (C5-6)?
MORE or LESS PRESSURE?
A: MORE PRESSURE.
If this is not caught in time, this person moves on to PHASE 3.
PHASE 3 - MULTIPLE LEVELS Of the spinal cord are CHOKED.
Q: MULTIPLE PARTS of the body are DISCONNECTED from what?
A: The BRAIN!
Q: Is this person moving TOWARDS LIFE or DEATH?
A: They're DYING!
If this is not caught in time, they’ll move on to PHASE 4.
PHASE 4 - look how thick the spinal cord is below,
How thick it is above.
Q: What’s happening in the middle?
A: The SPINAL CORD’s CRUSHED by the damage in the spine!!!
Q: How's the BRAIN supposed to keep the BODY healthy through that?
A: IT CAN'T!
We don’t see many phase 4’s in the clinic. There are 2 reasons:
Q: What’s the # 1 REASON?
A: They’re DEAD!
They've given up 30 – 40 – 50 years of - LIFE!!
Their SPINE was DAMAGED - and it CUT OFF LIFE to their body.
# 2 REASON we don't see many phase 4's:
Q: Where do we keep phase 4’s in our society? (Nursing what?)
A: They’re in NURSING HOMES, hospitals, wheelchairs!
They can’t take care of themselves anymore.
People in nursing homes take the MOST DRUGS on the planet!
They’re eating drugs all the time!
Q: Have you seen anyone go into a nursing home,
Take a whole bunch of drugs,
Come out of the nursing home a few weeks later,
And say, “thanks a lot for the stay, I feel wonderful now.”
Have you ever seen that happen?
Q: How do people come out of a nursing home?
Q: What percentage?
Q: How do you prevent coming out of a nursing home – DEAD!
A: Don’t go in!
Most people are there-it's 100% PREVENTABLE! 100%PREVENTABLE!
Some people are there because of accidents or things beyond their control. But most people are there - because they had CHOICES along the way,
They made WRONG CHOICES!
Because they were given
By OUTSIDE-IN doctors!
“Don’t worry about your BACK PAIN”
“Don’t worry about that SCIATICA”
“Don't worry about that NUMBNESS down your leg”
“Don't worry about it.”
“Here’s some Vioxx,
Here’s some Robaxacet,
Here’s some Tylenol 3.
Don’t worry about it.”
Q: Should the woman in the nursing home have worried about it?
A: YES, She’s in a nursing home now!
This is MY X-RAY
When I was 30 years old!
I was having SEVERE NECK PAIN all the time.
I could hardly turn my neck.
My LEFT ARM was NUMB and WEAK.
HEADACHES EVERY single day,
MIGRAINES several times a week.
Trouble focusing, VISION affected.
FREQUENT COLDS lasting weeks.
LOW BACK PAIN with SCIATICA down my RIGHT LEG.
I was 5 years into practice, spent $100,000 on schooling.
But I was in SO MUCH PAIN - I was ready TO QUIT MY CAREER!
Q: How’d this happen to me?
A: I was NEVER CHECKED AT BIRTH.
AGE 3, I HIT MY HEAD on the ROOF, mild concussion.
That shifted the top bone in my upper neck.
I started having EAR INFECTIONS over and over,
ANTIBIOTICS every time!
AGE 10, I FELL off the PLAY STRUCTURE onto my side.
That fall shifted my upper back (demonstrate-spine),
Whiplash to my neck, twisted the low back.
Doctors at the hospital checked me,
Took x-rays, said “no broken bones.
Give him Tylenol, he'll be fine.”
Tylenol - took away all my PAIN!
Within a year, I went from perfect vision - to needing GLASSES.
In my TEENS – I was just TIRED more than normal.
By AGE 18, I had my 1st episode of LOW BACK PAIN, & couldn’t move.
MOM took me to a CHIROPRACTOR.
Mom's a nurse, lots of lifting.
In her 30's she had a bad DISC HERNIATION in her low back.
Doctors at her hospital said,
“Kaye, you have to QUIT YOUR JOB, go on DISABILITY.
You'll probably be in a wheelchair by the time you are 50.”
Q: How’d you like to be told that as a 30 year old?
Your career is over, pain the rest of your life,
Get ready for the wheelchair?
They had NO HOPE for her - so she started trying different things.
Her LAST RESORT was a chiropractor.
He wasn't a chiropractor like me.
He worked on the basis of SYMPTOMS.
When mom’s back was bad, in CRISIS,
She’d go see the chiropractor -
Till the PAIN WAS GONE!
She’d QUIT CARE when she FELT BETTER.
“i'll come back when it hurts.”
My mom MANAGED her back pain for years.
She was in CRISIS once a year.
Her chiropractor helped her a lot, kept her moving, working.
But he NEVER FIXED her problem!
He just MANAGED HER PAIN.
That's why she's a PHASE 4 in her low back now.
Very bad now - lots of arthritis in her back, hips, knees, feet, lost organs.
Her NERVES were CRUSHED by the damage in her SPINE.
Mom took me to a chiropractor like that.
He DIDN'T TAKE X-RAYS.
He DIDN'T EVEN CHECK MY WHOLE SPINE,
Only checked where it hurt.
He found a spot that was stuck,
Adjusted, it popped.
At first - I didn’t believe in Chiropractic.
But 1 ADJUSTMENT took away all my pain! I was amazed!
AGE 19 though - pain was back, much worse.
It took 2 weeks of adjustments to take away my pain.
AGE 20, my family doctor’s giving me a
PRESCRIPTION for a BLOOD PRESSURE MEDICATION
AGE 21, he’s giving a 2nd prescription for HIGH CHOLESTEROL!
Q: What if I’d taken my blood pressure medication,
& Tylenol for back pain –
For the PAST 25 YEARS?
Q: Would those drugs have affected me?
If I‘d followed my doctor's advice,
I’d have KIDNEY & LIVER disease, maybe on DIALYSIS,
TOO MANY DRUGS!
I'm not okay with DYING early because of BAD ADVICE!
After UNIVERSITY I went to a CHIROPRACTIC COLLEGE
That taught SYMPTOM BASED care,
That chiropractic was all about MANAGING BACK PAIN.
Low volt current, ultrasound, stretches, & adjustments helped,
But I GAVE UP RUNNING because of BACK PAIN.
I GAVE UP going to the POOL – because I kept getting SICK
I started practice – it was all about TREATING SYMPTOMS & PAIN.
No Doctor's Report!
I’d adjust your PAIN till you FELT BETTER.
Then say, “come back when it hurts”.
EASY way to practice!
EVERYONE came back with the SAME PROBLEM - over and over.
Over TIME - X-RAYS were ALWAYS WORSE,
Showing MORE BREAKDOWN!
I learned early in practice - if I JUST TREAT SYMPTOMS,
Someday i’ll be looking after a lot of sick, crippled people!
Then I started breaking down!
AGE 30 - I was HURTING SO MUCH,
I was considering QUITTING PRACTICE,
Giving up MY DREAMS,
Pain was so bad!
Thankfully, I met another chiropractor ,
Who talked about the MIRACLES he was seeing in practice,
About RESTORING THE CURVE in the neck,
About RESTRUCTURING THE SPINE.
I was taught in school - these things weren't even possible.
It sounded like a LOT of CARE and TIME.
At first - I thought he was JUST AFTER MONEY and didn't go to see him!
But after a while, I was hurting so much,
I thought - “what have I got to lose?”
It was HUMBLING!
I had to admit - I didn't know everything.
I decided to be a patient - just DO what the doctor asked me to do.
1st xray was April that year.
By July, HUGE change!
I started feeling WELL again.
By September, I joined his practice to learn corrective care.
Here’s my 2nd xray a year later.
Everyone say “WOW” for me: (“WOW!”)
Q: What’s changed?
A: CURVE’s coming back!
Q: When the CURVE’S BACK, what happens to the SPINAL CORD?
A: Gets better.
Q: So the POWER can come FROM WHAT?
Q: And GO WHERE?
You should say wow because -
We DIDN’T KNOW this was POSSIBLE 20 years ago!
We were TAUGHT in school that once you were like this (1st xr),
We could help people with symptoms,
But we couldn’t correct it.- we couldn’t get the curve back.
So we didn’t learn this in school.
We had to take extra courses from other chiropractors
And travel around North America to learn this.
A lot of PRESSURE CAME OFF MY SPINAL CORD that 1st year.
HUGE improvement - all my SYMPTOMS – 100 times better!
Daily headaches -gone, migraines lot less.
Neck PAIN MUCH BETTER.
Arm numbness – GONE!
Sciatica – GONE!
Low back pain - IMPROVING.
Q: Did I continue with care?
In the 3rd year (3rd xray) my UPPER NECK started moving into a new position.
My MIGRAINES stopped.
My VISION improved.
In the 5th year (4th xray) I Passed my driver's test - without glasses,
I Did my 1st HALF IRONMAN!
I couldn't even IMAGINE these changes before, I was in so much pain!
Q: Who healed me?
A; My own body!
Q: My chiropractor helped me GET WHAT back?
A: My CURVE back.
The POWER in my brain began HEALING my body PERFECTLY
The way God DESIGNED my body to heal!
It doesn't matter whether you come in here with
Cancer, heart disease, back pain or asthma.
I’m NOT here to TREAT - ANY SYMPTOM or DISEASE!
I’m here to get your spine MOVING, ALIGNED -
Take the PRESSURE OFF your spinal cord.
The POWER God put inside you will HEAL you perfectly.
It took a lot of REPETITION for this to happen!
My spine had been breaking down for DECADES.
It’ll take TIME to change your spine too.
I’ve completed 5 HALF IRONMANS.
Did my 3rd MARATHON last year.
I'm 46 NOW, doing CROSSFIT, setting personal bests every week.
I did the SPARTAN RACE the last 2 years with my kids.
MY TRANSFORMATION’S affected my WHOLE FAMILY!
Hope and Grace have medals for their races.
As DADDY’S changed, they’re changed too!
I’ve CONTINUED TO IMPROVE –
EVERY YEAR - for the past 15 years!
I'm getting FASTER, STRONGER, HEALTHIER, as I get OLDER!!
I can't wait till I’m 55!!
I've got MY LIFE BACK!!
Q: BUT - what if I’d never had that checkup?
Never started SPINAL CORRECTION?
Or I quit my care?
Where would I be NOW?
A: I’d NOW be a PHASE 3!
ADVANCED DEGENERATION of the spine!
MASSIVE PRESSURE on the SPINAL CORD - at multiple levels.
Q: What would my life be like NOW?
A: It would be FREEDOM 55!
Q: You know what FREEDOM 55’s really all about?
A: It’s about coming to a place where you realize
That you can't keep doing what you are doing,
Body’s breaking down,
GIVING UP on YOUR MISSION, your DREAMS, your LIFE -
How SAD is that?
That’d be ME RIGHT NOW,
On drugs, organ disease,
Chronic pain, tired, sick, miserable,
GIVING UP on LIFE!
Q: What kind of DADDY would my children know?
Q: What do YOUR CHILDREN know?
Q: What’s YOUR LEGACY?
My GRANDFATHER – DEAD at 50 - because of BACK PAIN!
ONLY 50 YEARS OLD - he GAVE UP 70 YEARS of LIFE!
All his legacy GONE!
He just DIDN'T KNOW – no one told him!
That's NOT the DREAM for MY LIFE!
That’s NOT the DREAM for YOUR LIFE!!
Ruth is a phase 3 (1st xr).
SEVERE DAMAGE in her lower neck.
When I met Ruth, her doctors were telling her she was DYING,
She had a year, maybe 2 left to live.
Q: How'd you like to be told you’re DYING?
Ruth had RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS as a young child,
Then HEADACHES, MIGRAINES, and SEVERE ASTHMA in her teens.
LUPUS was diagnosed in her 20's.
Eventually she started walking with a CANE, then 2 CANES.
When Ruth came in for the doctor's report,
It took her 20 minutes to get down the hall,
She could BARELY WALK, utterly exhausted, she looked SO SICK!
I met Ruth after meeting her husband at Home Depot.
Bill was the plumbing guy, he helped me with parts for a tap.
I noticed his head forward head posture (demonstrate)
And he wasn’t turning his neck properly.
After Bill helped me, I didn't say anything, and I walked away,
Because I was in a big hurry – I didn’t have TIME for Bill
But I felt GUILTY. Bill was probably a PHASE 3.
Q: If you are walking down the street, and someone collapses,
Or there’s an accident, and people are injured –
Q: Do you have a MORAL OBLIGATION to HELP?
To DO something, call 911?
A: Society says YES, absolutely!
Q: If I don't say anything to Bill, WHO'LL TELL HIM?
His doctor? His neighbour?
So I walked back, gave Bill a card, and said,
“Bill, you've got some big problems in your neck,
I can tell, I'm a chiropractor, you need a checkup”.
It took 30 seconds to tell him I CARE!
Bill showed up at my office on Monday for a checkup,
And brought Ruth, his wife, to the doctor's report.
She looked very sick and unhappy to be there at first
But by the end she said, “you're the first doctor who's ever explained to me why i've been sick my whole life.”
Ruth had a checkup, started care.
Here's Ruth's xray a year later (2nd xr).
Q: What’s different?
A: CURVE'S COMING BACK.
Even with severe damage, spine’s BEGINNING TO CHANGE.
Ruth said, “500% improvement - all my symptoms!”
She was off her asthma & migraine medications,
Lupus was improving.
Now walking for 20 minutes at a time on a treadmill!
(3rd xr) In her 2ND YEAR,
Ruth walked a 10k RACE in 94 minutes!
(4th xr) In her 3RD YEAR, 1 CANE.
(5th xr) In her 4TH YEAR, NO CANES!
Ruth showed me pictures of her 3 NEW PUPPIES.
Of their new COTTAGE
Ruth used to moved in SLOW MOTION –
Now she's playing PIANO!
Ruth’s DREAMING AGAIN,
She has her WHOLE LIFE BACK!
She’s ALIVE – because I reached out to a stranger!
Now she comes in once a week.
Amazing improvements, correcting well.
She still comes in once a week.
Q: Why does she comes in once a week?
A: To keep it great.
Her spine’s still CORRECTING.
She’s still under GRAVITY,
The influence of POSTURE, HABITS.
She’ll still FALL sometimes.
She’s still has all the STRESSES of life.
Q: If her spine’s not MAINTAINED - what’s going to happen?
A: It’s going to go back.
Q: Does she want it to go back?
A: No. So maintain it.
That’s a happy story.
But I need to share another reality.
Most of you were REFERRED by people
That experience amazing stories like these.
But we see this too: This is RITA.
Q: What's wrong with Rita?
A: She's crooked.
Her head’s very far forward.
Using a WALKER now.
Rita was SOBBING during the exam,
She had SEVERE PAIN EVERY DAY for the past 7 years,
No medications helped,
EVERY DAY was worse.
She said, “10 years ago I felt fine.
Then my pain started, and got worse overnight.”
“My HEART’s FAILING,
My LEGS WON'T WORK.
Can you just KEEP ME WALKING?“
So I took an xray - this is what I saw.
Her neck was COMPLETELY FUSED.
Rita was now a PHASE 4!
Desperate. Depressed. Massive pain.
Failing heart. Can't walk anymore.
But SHE DIDN'T KNOW.
Q: Instead of fixing the problem,
What was she told to do - all her life?
A: Take PILLS.
Q: She’s LOSING EVERYTHING precious,
Because her legs are DISCONNECTED from what?
A: Her brain.
She planned on travelling around the world - in retirement years.
Now she's BARELY LIVING,
Spending $5000/month on nursing care.
She reached the final stage, PHASE 4.
Her SPINE COLLAPSED & FUSED.
Her SPINAL CORD’s getting CRUSHED!
Her brain can't keep her body ALIVE, HEALTHY,
Through a damaged connection line!
Like so many people, she's GIVING UP
What should be the BEST YEARS of her life!
Q: What’s YOUR LIFE looking like if you end up a PHASE 4?
A: Not good!
Q: Are you okay with GIVING UP DECADES OF LIFE, quality of life,
Going through suffering, sickness, disease?
A: Absolutely Not!
Q: What would she give - if she could go back from phase 4,
And for us to catch this at phase 2? Or even phase 3?
What would she give - to go back and have that OPPORTUNITY?
ANYTHING to go back and catch this at an early stage.
It could have been discovered.
But it was NEVER DISCOVERED.
Now it's TOO LATE, there's nothing that I can do.
Whether you wanted to be here tonight or not you, you’re here, right?
Because we asked you.
We're not mean - WE CARE!
We know we have LIMITED TIME to fix your SPINAL CORD PROBLEM!
We have Rita's in front of us that are SOBBING,
LOSING THEIR WHOLE LIVES,
And we know it’s 100% PREVENTABLE.
Q: But how do we PREVENT PHASE 4'S?
Catch them when?
A: In phase 1,2 or 3.
Some of YOU - in this room - PHASE 1’S.
But if it’s not corrected you go into PHASE 2.
Then PHASE 3.
Then PHASE 4.
Q: As a phase 4, your body parts are disconnected from what?
A: Your brain!
Q: She’s taking all these strong painkillers.
Was she always taking these painkillers?
Q: When she was PHASE 1 – what was she taking?
A: SAME STUFF you're taking! Tylenol, Aspirin, Advil.
Q: In PHASE 2 people take what?
A: Robaxacet Platinum, Extra Strength Tylenol, Percocet.
Q: Phase 3, you go from Tylenol - to Tylenol what?
A: Tylenol 3.
Q: What’s in Tylenol 3?
A: CODEINE, a NARCOTIC!!
Q: What’s after Codeine?
Q: How do you get to PHASE 4?
A: DO NOTHING! TAKE DRUGS!
Just change those light bulbs!
Q: I don't see people differently - if they’re PHASE 1, 2, or 3.
A: PHASE 1's uncorrected always become
PHASE 2 - then PHASE 3 - then PHASE 4.
Q: What’s the only difference between phase 1 and phase 4?
Q: What's wrong with Isabella?
A: Her head’s forward.
When the head goes forward
It presses the top bone into the brain stem!
That's why she was having SEIZURES since birth.
Isabella had been very sick her whole life,
In hospital for months at a time,
Weak immune system, severe asthma, and severe SEIZURES.
When I did Isabella’s exam, she was STONED!
She was taking NARCOTICS!
She was DRUGGED like this ALL THE TIME!
She was still averaging 6 seizures a day!
IMAGINE IF ISABELLA was YOUR CHILD!
Her neck is completely straight, CHOKING the SPINAL CORD.
Q: Guess how old Isabella is?
A: She's 4 YEARS OLD!
She’s 4 years old, her spinal cord is getting stretched,
Decreased LIFE to her body - and she’s only 4 years old!
Q: How’d this happen to a 4 year old?
A: Birth! This BIRTH INJURY was NEVER DETECTED.
This was a “NATURAL BIRTH”!
And it’s much worse with FORCEPS, VACUUM, C-SECTIONS!
She’s 4 years old, she has LIFE THREATENING SEIZURES,
Severe asthma, weak immune system:
Q: Where will she be in her teens? Her 20's? Her 30's? Her 60’s?
Q: Will she even make it through her childhood
If she’s already - phase 1 at 4?
I met Isabella at our Kid's Day screening in 2007.
Her doctors didn’t know what we do!
We REACHED OUT into our community to EDUCATE & CHECK KIDS!
3 weeks after Isabella's 1st adjustment, her SEIZURES WERE GONE!
Eventually off the narcotics.
Her WHOLE LIFE has changed!
But I wonder if she’d even be ALIVE today,
If we didn’t REACH OUT.
So I’m giving you 2 cards. (give 2/person)
After 20 years of practice I realize
I’ll never reach many people who need HELP
No matter how much I do.
You know people - i’ll NEVER meet!
People in phase 1, phase 2, phase 3 - headed for phase 4 - DYING!
People YOU could HELP!
So we ASK - our patients - to GIVE these 2 cards to someone
You know or meet - who NEED'S HELP.
I love helping people get better when it's bad, RESTORING LIFE.
But my #1 MISSION is to REACH PEOPLE EARLY -
Before it is TOO LATE!
Even more important - EVERY CHILD IS CHECKED!
We ask - if you have CHILDREN – please allow us to check them!
CHECKUP is FREE - Doctor's report is FREE.
They don't have to start care.
We’re not okay - helping mom & dad extend & save their lives -
While your precious children - looks like this,
And mom and dad never even know!
You WANT TO KNOW - if there’s something wrong with your child!
That's why we'll CHECK YOUR KIDS in the next 2 weeks.
If you’re a SPOUSE, we’ll check you too at our expense,
So you’ll KNOW.
One of my greatest joys is seeing
FAMILIES GETTING WELL TOGETHER!
These cards are for ANYONE ELSE you want us to check -
Friends, family, co-workers, people you meet.
All FREE, NO OBLIGATION to start care.
We just want people to be aware and understand.
MOST PEOPLE - you know - HAVE NO CLUE
About anything we’ve just talked about!
If they’re in this area, we’ll check them.
If they are in another city or country,
We’ll mail them a card and try to find a chiropractor
That does the specialized spinal correction we do.
We REACH OUT into our community.
If you’d like us to come SPEAK to people at YOUR WORKPLACE
Or team or club we’re happy to do that too.
When we review your x-rays in a moment, you may wonder
“what’ll it take to CORRECT MY SPINE?”
You need to understand - to go from phase 1, 2, or 3
Back to healthy, it takes TIME and ENERGY.
If it took you 20 YEARS TO GET SUBLUXATED,
We’re not going to correct your spine in a few weeks.
If you're in phase 1 or beyond
It takes - AT LEAST 12 MONTHS
To STABILIZE and BEGIN CORRECTING your spine.
You may think - 12 months sound like a long time.
Do you really think that it’ll take me that long?
12 MONTHS of BEGINNING to correct the spine,
Is EXTREMELY SHORT, Compared to HOW LONG most people have been breaking down.
Many structures - ligaments, muscles, joints, nerves, & other tissues
Have to restructure to restore your curve
And get it to stay in that new position.
In your 12 month plan, there are 4 quarters.
1st focus - RESTORE MOTION & FLEXIBILITY to your spine.
If your spine’s been breaking down for a long time,
We can't restore motion with only one adjustment.
We start off with “BABY” ADJUSTMENTS.
VERY GENTLE ADJUSTMENTS just to restore some MOVEMENT
And remove some PRESSURE from the SPINAL CORD.
1ST 6 WEEKS we focus on upper NECK
To restore FLEXIBILITY and POWER to the whole body
Since all healing happens through this one area.
I’ve seen people crawl in with severe back pain
And walk out after 1 upper neck adjustment!
Once the flexibility is returning to the NECK
We give your 1st EXERCISE to restore your curve.
We use REPETITION to do that.
The 1ST 90 DAYS is always FREQUENT,
We'll be seeing you 3 TIMES per WEEK.
If it doesn't move today, that's okay, by tomorrow it will move more.
EVERY ADJUSTMENT BUILDS on the previous.
Even a very damaged spine can change if we work at it over TIME.
Q: What naturally happens if we get your spine moving better,
Then leave it alone for a few weeks?
A: It would go back to the old position, the way it was growing.
So if your curve is lost,
And we adjust you today
And we put the curve back
By the time you’re home, though, your spine may go back to no curve
Because this is “normal” for you.
It’s not natural, not healthy, but that's your “normal” posture.
But with REPETITION, after a few weeks at 3 times per week,
Your spine will start to CORRECT, to stay in that new position longer.
We MONITOR YOUR CARE very closely with EXAMS EVERY 20TH VISIT to see how you are PROGRESSING.
AFTER 90 DAYS, we do another EXAM.
Once your spine starts moving,
Your holding your adjustments longer, You’re doing well,
Then we reduce your frequency to TWICE A WEEK in the 2nd stage.
This 2nd stage is like ORTHODONTICS.
When my daughter, Hope, saw the orthodontist,
He told us it was 3-5 YEARS To CORRECT TEETH in children, and LONGER IN ADULTS.
Hope had to wear HEAD GEAR - 14 HOURS EVERY DAY - for 2 YEARS!
She had to wear BRACES for 3 years, tightened every 6 weeks.
BRACES ARE OFF.
She may have to wear a RETAINER for the rest of her life!
It’ll be a lot easier for you!
At each PROGRESS EXAM, we give you
SIMPLE DAILY EXERCISES to RESHAPE YOUR SPINE .
The exercises only work - if you DO them.
As you’re getting adjusted and you're doing your exercises,
We want to see your SPINE CORRECTING.
AT 6 MONTHS we’ll take an X-RAY
Make sure you’re MOVING TOWARDS CORRECTION.
The majority of our patients reach the 3RD STAGE
Some time AFTER 6 MONTHS of care,
And get down to 1 ADJUSTMENT per week.
This 3rd stage is like a RETAINER once the braces come off.
Once the spine is MOVING, and starting to CHANGE SHAPE,
We keep it in a healthy position while it gets STRONGER.
Q: Some of you may wonder
HOW LONG will it take to get rid of my PAIN?
I certainly can’t wait 6 months or longer!
A: The pain often goes away much sooner
Than it takes for the spine to begin correcting.
Once we take a little PRESSURE OFF YOUR SPINE
And your spine begins to MOVE AGAIN,
That’ll help you with your pain.
At 9 MONTHS, we do another exam.
At 12 MONTHS, we do your YEAR END EXAM.
We take COMPARISON X-RAYS to see how far you’ve come.
If you are PHASE 1,
You’re young and fit,
You don’t have health issues,
You do your exercises
Then it's possible you’re NEAR FULL CORRECTION.
At that point your RECONSTRUCTIVE PHASE is COMPLETED.
We’d introduce WELLNESS CARE as the next step.
However, if you’re a PHASE 2 or PHASE 3,
And it's taken decades to break down,
You’ll NOT BE FULLY CORRECTED after 12 months.
At your year end report, your comparison X-RAYS
Will determine how much longer for RECONSTRUCTION.
Eventually you’ll reach MAXIMUM IMPROVEMENT -
Where your x-rays are normal or
The best they can be with the adjustments and exercises.
Sometimes - for example in a phase 3 –
We can’t fully correct the spine,
Because there’s TOO MUCH DAMAGE.
That said, I am super excited,
Because we see patients, even phase 2's and 3's,
That are still IMPROVING, still CORRECTING
More than a DOZEN YEARS LATER - at once a week!
Some of these people who came here with severe damage
Are now in their 90's!
YOU’ll DECIDE at your year-end report
HOW FAR you'll go with your care.
We'll give you OUR BEST RECOMMENDATION.
You’ll decide what you want to do, just like today.
Eventually EVERYONE will get to MAXIMUM CORRECTION.
Then we'll transition to WELLNESS CARE.
Q: Once we get your spine to maximum correction,
Whether that takes a year or several,
Should we just send you away and say,
“Good luck, come back when it hurts”?
What SHOULD YOU naturally do?
A: MAINTENANCE is only keeping it from getting WORSE.
We want you to IMPROVE over time.
WELLNESS is CONTINOUS TRANSFORMATION.
Some people have a hard time understanding that.
They say, “Doc, you’ve just told me I have this
INCREDIBLE BODY that can heal itself.
Q: Once you’ve FIXED ME, how come I can’t stay that way?”
Q: Why do I need to continue to look after myself?
A: That question comes from a logical place,
If you’re thinking in a MECHANISTIC MODEL.
Q: In a mechanistic model,
If you’re taking Tylenol for your headaches,
And your headaches stop,
Do you continue taking your Tylenol?
A: No, because there’s NO MORE HEADACHES
You’re only addressing the SYMPTOMS.
Q: But if you were to start EXERCISING,
HOW LONG should you KEEP EXERCISING?
Q: If you were to start EATING WELL,
HOW LONG should you eat well?
Q: If you START BRUSHING YOUR TEETH,
HOW LONG should you do that?
A: As long as you have teeth!
Your dentist is supposed to find problems early, clean your teeth,
Help KEEP YOUR TEETH HEALTHY over a LIFETIME.
Q: If you have your SPINE ALIGNED
To MAXIMIZE your NERVE SYSTEM,
How long should you do that?
So it does make sense, right?
I believe that CHIROPRACTIC CARE is for EVERYONE!
ALL OF US - should CARE for our SPINE and NERVE SYSTEM –
As a LIFESTYLE -
In a STEWARDSHIP MODEL -
For a LIFETIME!
Most people don't know that.
In subsequent years we’ll make recommendations.
As your spine HEALS and
You’re TAKING BETTER CARE of your SPINE
The LESS OFTEN you'll need to see us.
Our job is to keep your SPINE and NERVE SYSTEM HEALTHY -
For a LIFETIME.
Does that make sense?
Over the last 20 years, i’ve heard all kinds of
EXCUSES why people would NOT spend 12 months
Looking after their spine and nerve system.
“Doc, my health just ISN’T A PRIORITY right now
To spend 12 months looking after it.”
Hard to believe - but some people are TOO BUSY NOW.
THEIR HEALTH ISN’T IMPORTANT to them.
They just want to GET OUT OF PAIN.
For those people - we know some wonderful Chiropractors,
Who do ACUTE CARE WORK.
Their passion is to get people OUT OF PAIN.
If you only want pain relief - WE'LL REFER YOU
To one of those doctors, and they'll help you.
But the ONLY THING we do is RECONSTRUCTIVE CARE,
Because we believe that’s the BEST for our patients
And that’s WHAT WE OFFER.
The 2ND EXCUSE is TIME. The TIME to get here 3 TIMES A WEEK in the beginning.
All I can tell you about TIME is - it’s simply PRIORITY.
If it’s IMPORTANT and SERIOUS ENOUGH for you, you’ll get here.
I've had patients coming 3 times per week from Cornwall,
Because the specialized type of care we do here is not available there.
One man came from Maniwaki, - 3 hours away.
He would drive down Monday night, get adjusted, stay overnight at a hotel, then drive home after 2 more adjustments Tuesday morning.
Not ideal, but it worked.
In the busiest seasons of my life, for the past 15 YEARS
I've driven 30 MINUTES EACH WAY to see my Chiropractor every week!
I have areas in my spine that are STILL CORRECTING and
I want to MAXIMIZE LIFE to my body.
If you live anywhere close, consider yourself blessed,
This should be easy for you.
The 3RD ISSUE is MONEY.
Over the years i’ve seen money has been a real obstacle for some people.
This practice did not grow to be one of the largest clinics in Canada
By looking after the rich.
If you’re here on a busy day, you’ll see REGULAR PEOPLE
Just like you and me.
In the last 20 years of practice,
ANYONE GENUINELY WANTING CHIROPRACTIC CARE,
ANYONE SERIOUS about GETTING WELL,
Has NEVER been TURNED AWAY for FINANCIAL REASONS.
Let me explain how that works.
We have a FEE STRUCTURE that works really well.
The MAJORITY of our patients PAY OUR REGULAR FEE
Because they can AFFORD IT
And their health is IMPORTANT to them.
We also know some of our patients come here
During a SEASON of FINANCIAL HARDSHIP.
I’ll give you an example:
A few years ago, 2 people came in around the same time.
One man was the PRESIDENT of a very successful company.
When I explained his financial options in our 12 month program,
It was pocket change for him.
He said, “my health is most important, money’s no object.”
So he paid in full for the year.
The second person was a YOUNG LADY
Who had all kinds of health problems, cancer.
She had 3 CHILDREN, all of whom were equally sick.
They had infections, asthma, allergies - you name it, they had it.
She was struggling, going to the food bank to put food on their table.
As a CHRISTIAN, I believe both of these people
Deserve the SAME QUALITY & QUANTITY of care.
So for people who CAN’T AFFORD our care,
We make ACCOMMODATION
To make sure they can RECEIVE the care they need.
It’s the RIGHT THING to do.
I'm NOT HERE TO SELL YOU on Chiropractic care.
In fact, I will NOT ACCEPT YOUR CASE
If I don’t think you are SERIOUS ABOUT CARE!
If people are MISSING APPOINTMENTS
Or not doing what we ask
Then we’ll STOP YOUR CARE
To make room for someone else.
If you WANT to be here - fantastic!
Next we’ll review your EXAM and X-RAY RESULTS PRIVATELY
We'll give you our BEST RECOMMENDATIONS
IF we can help you, we’ll tell you
HOW LONG it’s going to take,
HOW OFTEN you need to be here, and
HOW MUCH it’s going to COST.
Then YOU’LL DECIDE if that’s WHAT YOU WANT to do.
If YOU’RE READY, we’ll BEGIN with YOUR 1ST ADJUSTMENT tonight. Then we’ll map out YOUR 1ST 90 DAYS of adjustments
We’ve ELIMINATED EVERY OBSTACLE.
IF you really WANT TO BE HERE,
You WANT BE HELPED,
You WANT TO GET WELL,
Then you’re in the RIGHT PLACE.
There’s NOTHING that’s going to stop you
FROM RECEIVING the care you need EXCEPT YOURSELF.
If, after listening and understanding what we do,
You DECIDE this is NOT FOR YOU, we’re OK with that.
HEALING starts with your BELIEFS!
If you DON’T BELIEVE this is the right place for you, that's okay.
Please STAND UP. The WASHROOM’s are there.
My team will put you in the rooms now. THANK YOU.
