No doctor including myself wants to be average or ordinary. We don't want to just be 'good enough'. There are doctors in this world and there are healers, my highest desire is to be a healer. Over the last 30 years in practice, I've come to the conclusion that the greatest healer of all time was Jesus of Nazareth. His power to heal came through Him, directly from God The Father. If you haven't heard about some of the miraculous healings Jesus performed, I suggest you check out This Link to 43 Bible verses that have inspired me as a doctor... https://bible.knowing-jesus.com/topics/Those-Jesus-Healed .
One thing I have learned is that as a doctor is that healing does not come from me. It is not within my power to heal you but if I work to become a clean, empty vessel, God can work through my hands. True healing is accomplished by God and God alone. I pray every morning before I start in the office and after I am done that God empties me of me and fills me with Him. I pray that The Holy Spirit fills the office, floods the atmosphere there until it is palpable when you walk through the door and uses me as an instrument of His healing.
Make no mistake, Chiropractic is a science, not a religion HOWEVER, Chiropractic like any healing art is just a means to an end. Chiropractic, as with all the other healing arts, is a science of applying procedures to the human body to remove any interference which is preventing the body from healing itself. BUT, it is plainly obvious that the healing arts do not heal the body. It is your INNATE inborn ability to heal that heals the body. We Chiropractors only remove the subluxations which are interfering with innate's ability to do it's job. Only the Power that made the body heals the body. It is done no other way.
For those of you who always ask how you can hold your adjustment and stay healthy longer, here's a short video you need to watch...
This is a short clip from the movie Super Juice Me. I think this two minute cartoon from the movie is one of the most profound analogies about how Chemical Stress, namely the foods we eat, effect our health.
WHAT ARE YOU PUTTING IN YOUR FISH BOWL?
I highly recommend watching the full movie which can be watched for free by following the link I put at the end of this video. It can also be viewed on Amazon Prime and Netflix.
I had a great question about how to 'adjust' your car seat to protect your back on both short and long rides. Here's your answer:
No, wait, that was the wrong video. Try this one... Sorry...
This video is excellent if you have a young teen that's getting ready to learn how to drive but even you can pick up some great tips from him on the perfect driving position.
To Vaccinate or Not To Vaccinate... That's your Choice... I support your decision either way!
I've been asked by many of you if the Flu vaccine is safe and effective. Truth is that I'm just a Chiropractor, not a medical doctor. My giving that kind of advice is like your Medical Doctor or Physical Therapist giving you advice on Adjusting a Subluxation. I have little education about vaccinations and they have little education about Adjusting or Subluxations. I can tell you this- I believe in FREEDOM OF CHOICE and FREEDOM TO INFORMATION. Instead of making an emotional decision about vaccinations, look at the actual data from the Government website on the number of deaths and injuries from each vaccination before making a decision to get one for yourself or your child. You can view that data at this link: https://www.hrsa.gov/vaccine-compensation/data/index.html
Did you know that the The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA) of 1986 prevents you from suing the vaccine manufacturer or the doctor that administered the vaccination? Did you know that although vaccines are touted as "safe and effective", there has been more than 4.2 Billion dollars paid out by the federal government because of deaths or injuries caused by vaccinations so far? You can check that out by following the link above to the government website and download the newest statistics.
Know that I support your educated decision to vaccinate or not to vaccinate because I support the Right To Choose. I do not respect a decision to mandate vaccinations by any level of government. I also do not advise giving a vaccination to your child or consenting to getting one yourself without reading the vaccine package insert which lists the ingredients, contraindications and possible side effects. Many medical doctors will admit that they themselves have not read the package insert from beginning to end. If you are going to put these chemicals into your body or your child's body, know what's in them and their potential risks and benefits. If you or your child has a reaction to a vaccination PLEASE report it to VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System) https://vaers.hhs.gov/ as only an estimated 10% of the people who have a side effect actually file a report.
On a lighter note, did you know that Buzz Lightyear graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic? Here he is adjusting my friend The Elf On The Shelf.
From our family to yours, have a wonderful Month, a Happy Hanukkah and a Merry Christmas! May your days be Merry and BRIGHT! Continue to be BRIGHT LIGHTS in our community.
In Health and Faith, Dr. Jay, Roberta, Kathy, Elli and Lori
