“My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others. Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?” ― Bob Hope

There has to be at least one day of the year to remind us that we’re here for something else besides ourselves.” – Eric Sevareid, CBS News journalist “Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.” – Calvin Coolidge, 30th president of the United States “Christmas is not a date. It is a state of mind.”  – Mary Ellen Chase “One of the most glorious messes in the world is the mess created in the living room on Christmas day.  Don’t clean it up too quickly.” – Andy Rooney “Never worry about the size of your Christmas tree.  In the eyes of children, they are all 30 feet tall.”  – Larry Wilde “I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.” – Charles Dickens “He who has not Christmas in his heart will never find it under a tree.”  – Roy L.

Do you have Headaches or Migraines ? – How can we help you?

        Do you have Headaches or Migraines ?    – How can we help you?     Migraine is not just a headache, it can be relentless; an intense pounding and throbbing pain that can steal your energy and ability to function.     Migraine is the most common neurological condition affecting people of all ages, social classes, races and culture. During Migraine Awareness Week 07th – 13th September 2014, the United Chiropractic Association is highlighting the benefits of Chiropractic care in both the prevention and treatment of migraine headache.  Migraine is usually managed by medication but some patients do not tolerate acute and or prophylactic medicine, whilst other people may wish to avoid medication, Chiropractic is an alternative that should be considered. A clinical trial[1] in Australia found that 75% of migraine sufferers experienced either ‘substantial’ or ‘noticeable’ improvement after a period of chiropractic treatment.  One of the authors of the research, Dr Peter Tuchin said “Around 22% (of patients) had substantial reduction which means that more than 60% of their symptoms reduced during the course of the treatment”  “What makes this a really strong result is that this was a chronic group – the average length of time they’d had migraines was 18 years.  To get a change of that sort of magnitude in a really chronic group was amazing” Chiropractic treatment appears to affect the changes in the function of the blood or nervous system in specific areas of the brain and chemical balances […] Read more »

A Poignant letter for all of us.

          Thank you Dr Kelly for this. Please take the time to read this beautiful repost from Dr. Kelly Flanagan (http://drkellyflanagan.com/), as he wrote this letter to his baby girl about what to look for in her future husband… Dear Cutie-Pie, Recently, your mother and I were searching for an answer on Google. Halfway through entering the question, Google returned a list of the most popular searches in the world. Perched at the top of the list was “How to keep him interested.” It startled me. I scanned several of the countless articles about how to be sexy and sexual, when to bring him a beer versus a sandwich, and the ways to make him feel smart and superior. And I got angry. Little One, it is not, has never been, and never will be your job to “keep him interested.” Little One, your only task is to know deeply in your soul—in that unshakeable place that isn’t rattled by rejection and loss and ego—that you are worthy of interest. (If you can remember that everyone else is worthy of interest also, the battle of your life will be mostly won. But that is a letter for another day.) If you can trust your worth in this way, you will be attractive in the most important sense of the word: you will attract a boy who is both capable of interest and who wants to spend his one life investing all of his interest in you.

Movement is Life & Chiropractic Delivers

  Movement is Life & Chiropractic Delivers Author // James L. Chestnut, B.Ed., MSc., D.C. Labels: Inspirational, Issue #06, Author James L. Chestnut, B.Ed This may sound a bit strange at first, but if you think about it for a moment, the truth of this statement begins to become more and more apparent. Without movement you could not sustain life: blood cells that don’t move cannot transport oxygen, lungs that don’t move can’t breath, hearts that don’t move can’t pump blood, and spines that don’t move can’t create the motion required for proper joint nutrition, for the activities of daily living, or for the stimulation of the joint-brain pathways required for proper brain and body function. You heard correctly, movement (especially of the spine) is required for proper brain function for the coordination of activities such as concentration and learning, emotions, motor control, and organ function (including immune organs).1–2 Roger Sperry, the recipient of the Nobel prize in 1982 for his work in brain research, stated that the importance of movement of the spine in relation to brain function could be equated to that of a windmill that generates electricity for a power plant. He also stated that the more structurally distorted we are, the  less energy we have for metabolism, for healing, and for thinking. In fact, research has shown that if you cut off the supply of somatosensory information going to the brain, the brain will actually reach a state of coma!! 3 That’s right, the brain does not simply control […] Read more »
