Some People in Boise Get Back Pain or Sickness, Other Don’t: Your GAP is Why

Why is it that some people get sick or back pain while others don’t? Ever notice that some people get colds every winter, or some kids miss school a lot while others never do? Some people blow out their back every few months, others don’t. This is all related to an individual’s General Adaptive Potential.

Some of Chiropractic’s 33 principles focus on a concept known as “The Limitations of Matter”. This refers to the conditions necessary for a living system to survive or thrive. Living like us! I guess an extreme example of this would be that even a very healthy person would die if they were left naked outside in sub-zero temperatures for long enough. There is a limit to what we can adapt to. This is the “Limitation of Matter.”

In life, the experience isn’t usually so extreme. We all experience some degree of negative stress. These stresses usually aren’t so overwhelming that they result in instant death. Many times the negative stress adds up and reduces our experience and expression of life, thus our health, causing us back pain or sickness.

The good news is, you can improve your GAP and thereby increase the ability of your body to manage negative stress. Chiropractic care is simply one of the best ways to accomplish resolving back and neck pain and improve overall health.

The beautiful thing is that your body is more than a machine—it has life that flows through it, it can re-create itself! And that is exactly what we want to partner with you in doing through chiropractic care with me at my office.

Life Principles You Can’t Live Without

The first thing I want you to understand is that you are born to develop, heal, adapt and thrive. You don’t need drugs to do it. You don’t need surgery to do it. You have a life force that directs the whole process. This principle forms the major premise of chiropractic which states “There is a Universal Intelligence in all matter, constantly giving to it its properties and actions, thereby maintaining it in existence.”

It is also important to understand that life is conditional. This means that if the conditions of life are not properly met, its expression will be limited, and if the condition contains enough severe negative stress, life will cease.

Now, if we look to apply these concepts, it makes sense that we make our best efforts to work with these principles—and that is exactly what chiropractic care at my office in Boise does.

We take positive action on the things that we know support and enhance life, and we act to eliminate things that take life away. This is no easy task, and I salute you for making this incredible commitment to calling my office, a commitment that I can help you continue as a lifestyle for your lifetime!

Action Step

What I want you to do is pay close attention to what you do, and add chiropractic to enhance the health giving quality of your life’s practices. Now that you have a better understanding of the principles of life, you will begin making better decisions for you and the ones you love.

Learn a Secret to Change

Change is never one-dimensional. Unfortunately, when most people seek to change, they attempt to approach it in one dimension and as a result they typically fail. Adaptability is the key…but it’s as powerful subconsciously and it is when you put your mind to it.

People who have tried to drop weight by just dieting, or create better endurance by just exercising, or create a positive mental attitude by just psychologically affirming, have often been disappointed with the results. It is not that any of these things are bad ideas; it is that they are all inter-related and need integrating.

As I wrote in my book series change in life exists in 3 key dimensions: 
Neuro-Spiritual: Your mental and emotional states. Physical: Your physical states and functions. Bio-Chemical: Your biology and chemical functions.

Psychological change is typically the genesis of all other change. It entails your mind-set, self-perception and world view. I want you to know
 that you CAN change your mind
set, which will in turn change your actions, which will in turn change your life. Even if you have tried some form of self-improvement in the past and failed, renew your hope. I am here to help you transcend old boundaries.

Taking action in the psychological dimension to use your will to create a positive attitude, while simultaneously improving your bio-chemical dimension and physical dimension, will translate into huge results in all dimensions.

Here’s the secret: Chiropractic treatment and care, like I provide in my office in Boise, has been shown to improve adaptability. If you’ve been stuck and want to unlock your mind and body’s potential now’s the time to call my office! What if you have subluxations, or blockages in nerve communication? Those are the signals that run your body, it’s your life force, your vital energy. Let me repeat, if your life force is diminished in any way then you aren’t capable of adapting to your environment and being as healthy as possible. The more adaptable you are, the healthier you’ll be and the longer you will live. Your brain and nerve system are what adapt your body to the environment.

Action Step

Try chiropractic care at 100% and start experiencing the miracle of change in your life.

I applaud you for your commitment. Most people dream of improvement, but very few take real action—so congratulations!

Chiropractic Treatment in Boise: The Power of Touch

This week I want to share with you a fascinating article that was reviewed in a scientific publication, The Explorer. In two separate experiments at the University of Connecticut’s Medical Center, 98 mice were injected with 200,000 cells of Methylcholanthrene (which is a cancer causing toxin), double the defined lethal dosage.

These experimenters took a “healer”, who works by laying his hands on people, and had him use his talents on the mice. Not only did the tumors show regression on the mice the healer put his hands on, but further, other mice in the vicinity that also had tumors were helped, and he never physically touched them! What does this all mean?

Years ago, most serious scientists would denounce such findings or these types of experiments in general. Today, we see this type of research all the time, specifically in regards to chiropractic treatment right here in Boise, Idaho, home to one of chiropractic’s largest research centers. Historically, the human body was viewed as pure matter, a 
bag of bones if you will, and therefore all strategies for helping it were based on this incomplete view. In the last century however, with the rise of the study of quantum physics, these energies started becoming widely accepted. As a result, we started looking at the body and mind and the role of energy in health (like chiropractic treatment), healing, and the expression of life in general. We still, to a large degree, can only speculate as to why a person can lay his hands on someone and tumors can heal, but we do know it happens.

Chiropractic, as a profession, was way ahead of its time in this respect. Since 1895, chiropractic treatment has used the healing power of touch as a part of our procedure to promote healing. Chiropractic knew that the connection between the mind and body was the nervous system, and that in order for health to be fully expressed, the nervous system must be free of interference. In fact, as part of your assessment in my office I specifically measure the energy and adaptability of your nervous system to determine the chiropractic treatment needed.

This nerve energy communication process can be hampered by the negative stress of everyday living, and that is why chiropractic treatment from my office in Boise is so important. Together, utilizing this powerful mind and body connection, you and I help eliminate negative stress so that you can realize the best of your potential.

The moral of this story, don’t underestimate the healing power of 
 loving touch.
