I have spent the last ten years continually searching and adding to my arsenal of techniques to help my patients. What I have found, astonished even me. There are ways of working with the body to help it find problems hidden deep within the body and specific protocols to help the body heal faster.
Growing up my family had a narrow understanding of how the body works. Because of this I was a fairly sickly child. It was normal for me to have stomach pain, diarrhea, headaches, allergies, and asthma. To treat this my mother made sure I always had a Ziploc bag in my backpack of Tylenol/Advil, Pepto-Bismol, Imodium AD, and an Asthma Inhaler. I would take at least one of these pills everyday if not more. They never fixed the problem and I never felt complete relief. This started when I was in Kindergarten and continued until I was in Chiropractic School.
I attended Life Chiropractic College West in the fall of 2003 and it literally changed my life. I new I wanted to help people, but I had not realized how much I would learn how to help myself. I learned the difference between "managing" a problem and finding and treating the "cause" of a problem. I soon realized that there is a true cause to every problem, pain, and disease in the body. I also realized that the current treatments that are standard operating procedure in mainstream healthcare are not focused on finding the cause of chronic issues, but more focused on managing the issue over the course of years and years with the use of medications. I learned that all the years I took pills for Diarrhea, headaches, stomach pain and asthma I was "managing" the symptoms, but in reality all I was doing was degrading my health. For example when I would take Imodium AD it would reduce my diarrhea, but it would cause constipation and horrible stomach cramps that would double me over. I remember crying on the toilet wondering why God was punishing me. By the time I was 13 years old I was so depressed my parents took me to see a counselor to help me mentally cope with the pain. It was common for me to tell my mother I had a headache and she would say "if you didn't already take Tylenol or Advil then stop complaining". She was not trying to be mean, but this was what she had been taught by mainstream medicine to do when you have a headache.
In Chiropractic school one of the first things we learn is that the body is a self regulating system that is controlled by the brain and the nervous system. Given the proper nutrition, a toxic free environment and proper communication from the brain your should create and maintain highest level of health. When a symptom like headaches occurs, my first thought is not "what pill can I take to make it go away", but rather what could be causing the headache in the first place, and what can I do to fix the cause so it does not keep coming back. I have a deep feeling of responsibility to help as many people in my community learn about how their bodies work and what "true health" really is.
I always am searching for new natural treatments and procedures to help my patients who have more difficult cases. Most recently I was fortunate to be lead to two amazing treatment protocols. The first is Neurological Integrative System (NIS) for short. My wife had been receiving chiropractic treatment most recently for sciatic pain. The condition came on fast and within a day or two she was in serve pain and having trouble walking. Her entire left leg was numb and she had a very pronounce limp. I took her to see an NIS practitioner located in Anacortes, WA Dr. Bentz. He met with my wife for about 20 minutes and he performed the NIS protocols on my wife. By the end of the treatment she had no pain, her limp was almost completely gone and the numbness had lessened. He did not adjust her at all, he used functional neurology to re-connect pathways between the brain and the body. He found deep hidden viruses inside her organs and cranial nerves wreaking havoc with her entire system. I was in awe of the power of this technique and have been on the journey of mastering it.
The next amazing technique I have recently found is Morphogenic Field Technique (MFT) for short. MFT uses quantum physics to address problems in the body that are then supported with organic supplementation. I have been interested in supplemental nutrition for some time but have always felt there is so many choices on the market and who was to say what was the right one for any given person. MFT has changed that for me. My wife and I attended a MFT seminar in April of this year. At the seminar one of the founders of the technique Dr Bob Springob tested my wife using the MFT protocol. She had been suffering with a skin condition for the last 10 years which looked a lot like psoriasis on the back of her entire neck. She had tried changing her diet, topical salves, essential oils, topical sprays, and fungal treatments some would help calm the eruptions but only temporally. Dr. Springob tested her using the MFT kits and developed a nutritional protocols to help support her skin problem. With in 2 weeks of taking the protocol her skin started to heal and stopped erupting. 8 Weeks later her skin is almost completely normal. This was all accomplished by identifying the specific nutritional supplements her body needed. MFT finds what your body needs at the cellular level to create new healthy cells. I believe with both NIS and MFT I can take my ability to help more people to a whole new level.
I know I make this sound simple but it's not, and it's not always easy. Many of my patients find me after seeing many doctors who can't seem to "diagnose" their condition and have told them they will either have to live with the pain or it is all in their head. If you have felt like no one listens to you or they don't seem to understand what is going on with you then I implore you to call me for a free phone consultation. If I can't help you I will tell you where I would go next to find answers.
