So, the question is, how does adjusting the neck help headaches? To help answer this question, let’s look at a study that was recently published that examined this exact issue…Continue Reading →
If you watch one of the many Emergency Room medical drama shows on TV you could be forgiven for accepting the myth that modern medicine has triumphed over nature. It often appears that people’s conditions can be healed within one single half-hour episode (including the time taken to bring you the important messages from their sponsors).
The encultured belief in our society is that there is a drug for every condition and if the condition can’t be suppressed or eliminated then you need to seek a more powerful solution quickly. We have adopted a ‘this for that’ mentality where we expect to be ‘fixed’ or cured instantly from whatever ails us so we can get back into life again, (which is usually what caused the problem in the first place.Continue Reading →
In our busy lives it is often convenient to put babies into plastic cocoons or capsules rather than carry them close to us. We are often too quick to isolate little ones to their own bedroom at nights. Babies need contact with the presence of another human being. They wont be spoiled by getting too much of it. It is necessary for their growth and development.
Examples from the animal kingdom show that baby elephants are touched by their parents at least every 5 minutes 24 hours a day. Animal researchers conclude that the constant touching is an integral part of the physical, mental and emotional development of baby elephants.Continue Reading →
In 1927 R.W. Stevenson defined 33 principles that cover the belief structure of chiropractic. Whilst a lot of what was described in 1927 was not provable at the time it is amazing how much of what was stated then has been accepted as scientific fact now.

“A universal intelligence is in all matter and continually gives to it all its properties and actions, thus maintaining it in existence”.
So, what does this mean?Continue Reading →
For most of us, our journey into this world is no picnic. After a tortuous passage out into the light of day the child is taken from the mother for weighing and measuring, blood is taken for a PKU test and then Vitamin K is injected into the newborn. What a welcome!!!
Parents of newly born babies face a stand up battle in the delivery room with the hospital staff if they decide on any other course of action. Seldom are these procedures of an emergency nature and it is only in the most obvious cases of maternal malnutrition that this intervention should be considered. There is no reason to further trauma-tize the poor baby by sticking another needle in them to inject something that is most likely unnecessary in the first place and possibly very dangerous to their future health.Continue Reading →
The fact of the matter is that there is an amazing healing POWER that resides in all of us. There are 75 trillion cells in our bodies constantly interacting and communicating with each other. Think of the tens of thousands cellular interactions occurring each second of our lives.
Your heart knows exactly how much blood to pump and the exact pressure and rate at which to pump it. We don’t have to tell our lungs how to intake oxygen or our body cells how to use that oxygen to create energy and function. Thank goodness we don’t need to spend our mental energy telling our stomach how to break down the sandwich we ate for lunch. If we had to consciously coordinate blood clot formation when we got a cut on our hand, for example, a paper cut may cost us our lives.Continue Reading →
