I got a phone call from Elvis Presley. He is looking forward to seeing you next month on Wednesday, October 30th, not the 31st as he has another gig to play in heaven on Halloween. I will be taking that day off as usual to let Elvis do all the adjustments on the 30th. -Dr. Jay
After an adjustment to remove subluxations in your spine, your brain (the electrical generator for your body) is fully connected to all 70 Trillion cells in your body without any interference. If each of the cells were represented by a light bulb, you would be a VERY BRIGHT LIGHT after your adjustment. Have you had your family checked for subluxations... Lately?
Speaking of Bright Lights, Why are restaurants so Dark? Did you know bright lights encourage healthy eating?
Research published in the Journal of Marketing Research links bright light to healthier food choices. The study observed 160 diners at four separate metropolitan locations of a chain dinner restaurant between 6 and 8 p.m. Two of the restaurants used bright lighting (250 lux luminance) and the other two locations had dim lighting (25 lux luminance).
The researchers found that diners at the well-lit locations were more likely to choose healthy options such as baked or grilled fish and chicken than the patrons at the dimly lit restaurants. These results were replicated in a laboratory test of 700 college students where scientists attributed students’ healthier choices to the alert feelings that being in a bright room elicits. -This article appears in the December 2016 issue of Natural Awakenings.
I would be remiss if I didn't mention in a newsletter about Chiropractic and Being a Bright Light that the True Bright Light that shines within us is God. There are examples of this found in both the New and Old Testament...
2 Samuel 22:29 Lord, you are my lamp. You, Lord, turn the darkness around me into light.
John 8:12 Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 1:5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. Matthew 5:16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
Do Subluxations only affect you? NO. Subluxations affect everyone around you. Think about it. If you're subluxated at C1, your atlas, which is at the very top of your spine, it can lead to headaches, decreased immune response, insomnia, dizziness, chronic tiredness, balance problems, vertigo, etc... When you have those problems, are you more likely to be nice and kind and patient with those around you or are you more likely to be short tempered and unkind? Our subluxations affect everyone around us. Get adjusted to remove subluxations so you can be a beacon of light, a lighthouse that shines positivity on all those around you.
Noticed it's getting darker earlier? It's not fair to talk about the light without addressing Seasonal Affective Disorder and depression as the days get shorter...
Regular chiropractic adjustments have proven to help the body heal better and when the body heals better it may lead to decrease pain, depression and anxiety and allow for a healthier (mentally and physically) existence. Our moods are regulated by our body's chemistry. This chemistry in your organs as well as your brain is all regulated by the nervous system. Studies show that Chiropractic can effectively improve mood and help combat depression by improving the function of the nerve system.

Ever wonder where I get my Big Ideas for the newsletters? From you guys! These (dad Humor) Jokes are from my friend Mr. McCleary and were delivered by his daughters... They really cracked me up... just before I cracked them up...
"I didn't believe he could fix my problem, but now I stand corrected. Even though he's so serious, he always cracks me up. I try not to take him too seriously though because he's always pulling my leg."
"You know, I think Quasimoto really needed to be seen by a chiropractor, but that's just a HUNCH."
"So this duck waddles into the chiropractor's office and says, 'I need to get my spine quacked'. "
"Every composer goes to a Chiropractor at one time or another... you know... when they have Bach problems."
OK, that's a wrap! I hope you learned a little bit about the value of being a bright light. Remember that there is no amount of darkness that can hide the light of even a single candle.
We're looking forward to checking your spine this month, watching your posture improve and removing any subluxations to allow your brain to communicate with all your tissue cells without any interference, thereby making you the brightest light you can be!
In Health and Faith, Dr. Jay, Lori, Roberta, Kathy and Elli
