A Miracle for A Mom!
As a doctor of Chiropractic, I work with patients to rehabilitate bodily injuries, as well as neck and back pain that we all suffer from, from time-to-time. Over the years, the scope of body issues that my patients have brought to me for help has widened a great deal from just physical aches and pains to digestive and neurological issues. As a certified digestive specialist and board-eligible chiropractic neurologist, I’ve had the pleasure of helping patients with everything from Irritable Bowel Syndrome to Rosacea to difficulty getting pregnant.
A Terrible Prognosis… to a Miracle
Early in my practice, I had a patient come to see me who had been bedridden for more than a month after a bad reaction to a medication she was given for mastitis (inflammation of the breasts especially as a result of breastfeeding.) All of her joints were stiff and she could not walk. She came in a wheelchair. Her medical doctors had told her that she had reactive arthritis and that if it hadn’t resolved within two to three weeks, she would have it for the rest of her life. This was a terrible prognosis, especially since she had two infant children at home and it had been just over a month since her diagnosis. She was referred to me by one of my professors from my Chiropractic college. I was reluctant to take her as a patient since her medical doctors had said that this condition would not resolve, but take her I did. There was a little progress after the first couple of visits. We combined chiropractic adjustments, nutrition and detoxification protocols. Within a couple of weeks she was doing significantly better and within about two months, her problem had completely resolved. For me, this was very exciting. Shortly, you will see why it should also be exciting to you.
A couple more years went by and I had a very similar experience with a Type 2 diabetic patient. He came to me for help with his neck and back pain. I had many patients who had come to me for neck pain, back pain, etc., and I was noticing just how many of them also had Type 2 diabetes. This was becoming a true epidemic. I had great success with this patient. I was so surprised by how quickly his problem resolved after more than 16 years on drugs for his Type 2 diabetes, that I got very excited and started to reach out to the patients I was working with who had diabetes but had not asked for my help.
What does all of this have to do with you?
As we get older, most of us struggle with our weight and other issues. More than one third of Americans are obese and another third are overweight. (So, two thirds of us are overweight or obese.) Almost one out of two Americans have high blood pressure. One out of 3 people over age 65 have diabetes and 90-95% of these patients are Type 2 diabetic. This syndrome of obesity, Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol (or any combination of the above) is the true epidemic of the 21st century. It is called metabolic syndrome.
The standard medical treatment for each of these serious health conditions (type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and obesity) is almost exclusively drug therapy. The vast majority of Americans would prefer natural treatment for their health problems yet the treatment for each of the problems related to metabolic syndrome is drugs. And the toxic drug therapy is expected, in most cases, to continue for the rest of your life. The research shows that these problems are brought on to a significant degree by the build-up of toxins in the body. We get toxins from pesticides and other chemicals in our food, from pollutants in the air and water, from chemicals and plastics in the environment and from drugs, vaccines and other medical interventions. And then the treatment for these toxic conditions is more toxins (drugs).
The Biggest Epidemic…Diseases Caused or Worsened by Medical Care
Research has shown that the more drugs and toxins we have in our body, the more likely we are to have memory problems, various cancers, diabetes, Parkinson’s disease and other neurological disorders including Alzheimer’s and dementia. This is the biggest epidemic. Are your medical doctors helping you to prevent these diseases and conditions associated with aging or is their treatment causing you to develop these problems that can and will totally destroy your quality of life by prescribing toxic chemicals (drugs) for toxic conditions?
Natural, Non-toxic, Health-promoting Approach
Whenever possible, your treatment for your health problems should be free of poisons/toxins. Your stiff, sore muscles, aching joints, your Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Rosacea, Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol should (and can) be treated by natural methods that contribute to your current and long-term health.
I have reached a point in my career where I know it is possible to treat, with natural methods, almost all the health problems that Americans develop. Many people can’t conquer them on their own, or they don’t know that natural, non-toxic, health-promoting methods are available.
