Chiropractic Ended My Chronic Headaches
My earliest childhood recollection is that I would get a headache every time I rode my bicycle. At the time, I considered that to be the norm. My mother took me to a number of medical doctors, including neurologists, psychologists and general practitioners. I remember them saying “it was all in my head” or “I was experiencing growing pains”, and I was prescribed pain medication, at that time 222′s. In my teenage years, a friend suggested I see her chiropractor. I was petrified going to see the chiropractor for the first time, but after a short period of seeing this chiropractor, my headaches had stopped. So had my need to take any medication.
Discovering the Benefits of Chiropractic
When I left for chiropractic college, my outlook was that chiropractic was for pain relief. I had no idea that once I arrived and began my chiropractic education, I would discover the far reaching benefits that chiropractic could provide. It was there that I discovered and truly understood that every cell, tissue and organ in the body was controlled by the nervous system, and that chiropractic could restore proper balance within the body.
I recieved my education at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. When I first arrived in Iowa in 1973, I was blown away by the excitement generated by the three thousand students at the school., which had be founded by the Father of Chiropractic, D.D. Palmer.
Helping People Get Healthier Through Chiropractic
I have helped generations of people become healthier through chiropractic care. They have primarily achieved this by improving the integrity of their nervous system. The North American model of health is to visit a doctor only when you are having pain (symptoms); my approach is to not only help with the pain, but to address the cause and prevent future problems.
Living the Chiropractic Lifestyle
One of my favorite things to do is to spend time with my family and being a chiropractor has enabled me to do so. My four children have all benefited from chiropractic care since birth, and have all had the privilege of exceptional health and well-being, without the use of drugs or surgery.
Three things influence health; physical (chiropractic), chemical (no drugs), and emotional. I have been under regular chiropractic care since I was a teenager and not a month goes by where I do not receive an adjustment. My wife is crazy about the food that I eat (she wants me to live to be 100 and keep up with her) so local, in-season, organic, hormone and antibiotic free (just to name a few) are the types of foods I consume. A lot of emphasis is placed on nourishing myself with whole, fresh, unprocessed foods. This approach to health has been embraced by my entire family. It is also integral to maintain a positive outlook on life; not sweating the small stuff helps keep life and challenges in perspective.
