Gorman Chiropractic & Holistic Health Center’s Holistic Approach Explained
Phase 1: Re-establish Neurological Integrity, “The Foundation of Health,” in the Brain / Body.
Nerve and Structural interference happens when nerves or tissue are interfered with causing the life energy, which flows through them, to be blocked. It can be produced by every day and chronic repetitive movements, poor posture, sitting at a computer, using a tablet or cell phone, and playing sports; as well as trauma such as an accident or fall, fractures, surgery, scars, stress, etc.
If our tissues, muscles, or fascial movements are restricted, it can cause congestion or interference with the electrical impulses and signals moving through them that are the communication pathways of the body. This interference can be in the spine, extremities, organs, acupuncture meridians, or the cranium (skull). Pain and disease are not the initial cause but are actually key indicators that there is nerve interference. The structure of the body determines the function of the body, and movement is life
Re-establishing structural and neurological integrity is the foundation of optimal health and wellness, because the brain controls and coordinates the whole body through the nervous system. 80% of all conditions improve when the structure of the body is properly re-established to allow a free flow of vital energy and communication between the brain and entire body. This is best done in our office primarily through Chiropractic care, but we complement that with therapeutic massage, percussion myofascial release, cold laser, cranial nerve & brain balancing techniques, therapeutic rehab, sports medicine, Applied Kinesiology, reflexology, and acupuncture.
Phase 2: Reduce Inflammation and Create Bio-Chemical Balance in Brain / Body
a.)Rebalance Nutrition & Diet (The gut is known as the 2nd Brain.)
A. Rebalance the Body from An Acidic State to an Alkaline, Balanced State.
B. Reset the Adrenal Glands (Stress Glands) & the General Adaptive Syndrome (GAS).
C. Repair the Gut and Take Digestive Enzymes or Hydrochloric Acid to Aid Digestion, Assimilation and Elimination.
D. Restore Proper Bowel Flora via Full Spectrum Probiotics to Optimize Digestive Function, Immune System & Brain.
E. Reduce Infective Organisms in the Body like Yeast, Parasites, Virus, and Bacteria; and Detoxify the Brain and Body.
F. Replenish Nutritional Deficiency for Organs, Glands, Brain, or System Weakness to Repair and Rebuild the Body.
The gut is known as the 2nd brain because there are twice as many neurotransmitters (brain cells) in the gut as there are in the brain. Therefore to heal and repair the brain, and for children’s brains to properly develop, you must correct and balance the gut and inflammation. Otherwise it is impossible to balance the brain and truly heal anything in the body, since the brain controls everything.
Inflammation is the cause of all disease and chronic pain. Therefore, if we identify the causes of it and treat them, we will help most diseases and chronic pain. We recommend organic nutrition and whole food supplementation specific to your needs. Processed foods and all forms of refined sugar lower the immune system’s function, and dramatically increase pain and inflammation.
The Standard American Diet (SAD), which contains food grown on depleted soils, has left Americans deficient in many nutrients important to health. In 1936, U.S. Senate Document 264 noted that 95% of Americans are deficient in minerals and that all US citizens should be using nutritional supplements. Of course, we are much worse currently. In our office, we use computerized blood testing analysis; saliva, hair, genetic, and muscle response testing (Professional Applied Kinesiology) to evaluate your specific nutritional vitamin and mineral status and your specific biomedical imbalances. We then provide diet, lifestyle, and stress coaching to help support the lifestyle changes that you need to reach and maintain all your health goals, and have weight loss programs
b.) Remove Heavy Metals and Other Toxins from the Brain / Body
Toxic metals are widely used in industry, food processing, and agriculture, and find their way into our air, food, soil, and water. Exposures to these toxins are not blatantly obvious to us and are hard to pinpoint as a cause for illness. Some toxins are naturally occurring chemicals that our body has had a hard time breaking down. When accumulated in our cells, these toxins block the utilization of nutrients, and can cause our cells to mutate or die. These can be harmless in very small quantities, but deadly in larger amounts. We have ways to evaluate toxicity and create a specific program to help activate the natural detox process in your body.
Researchers and experts in environmental medicine tell us that it is not a question of if our bodies are burdened with toxic overload, but “How bad is it?” Common problems of toxicity include: Headaches, fatigue, general joint and muscle pain, skin disorders like rashes and eczema, and asthma and allergies. Many toxins are neurotoxins like monosodium glutamate (MSG) and mercury, and affect our brain functions such as memory, thinking, and learning; and feelings like anxiety, depression, phobias, and bad moods.
c.) Reprogram the Brain / Body and Desensitize for any Allergies and Sensitivities
Conventional estimates suggest that 35 million people in the US suffer from allergies of different kinds. Allergies must be addressed; otherwise the memory of your immune system will continue to retrigger certain issues to return. We use a technique referred to as ASERT (Allergy Sensitivity Elimination and Reprogramming Technique) to help evaluate and treat your allergies / sensitivities.
There are three main causes of Allergies:
- A substance in the environment, such as dust, mold, or pollen, and other not as common triggers like weather, etc.
- Foods or food additives, such as gluten, corn, milk, soy, etc.
- Metabolic Byproducts (your own bodily fluids and tissues such as your organs, glands, hormones, neurotransmitters)
Allergic reactions can mimic a wide range of diseases and disorders and lead to confused immune system responses. Infective organisms and drugs such as NSAIDS are linked to leaky gut syndrome, or excessive permeability of the GI tract. These leaky walls in the digestive tract allow incomplete digested food particles into the blood stream. Food particles in the digestive tract are normal, but food particles in the blood stream are misinterpreted as foreign invaders and can set up significant autoimmune reactions. ASERT is an essential treatment for any chronic health issues, but especially for any allergies, neurological, immune system, and autoimmune issues. With ASERT technique we can non-invasively test what allergies and sensitivities you have, and more importantly they can be treated and desensitized, so you no longer experience any symptoms associated with them.
d.) Protect the Brain / Body from Electromagnetics and Electrical Pollution
We live in an ocean of electromagnetism. Our bodies have their own electromagnetic field, much like a magnet has north and south polarities. Every cell has north and south polarity that affects all the functions of our bodies. Our fields should be synchronized with the natural rhythms of the earth, moon, and sun, etc. and extremes in temperature and weather can affect also affect this.
When electromagnetic pollution from power lines, appliances, computers, TVs, microwave communication devices, cell phones, Wi-Fi wireless networks, radiation exposure, and even the electric clock by the bed begins to accumulate, our entire system becomes stressed to the point of exhaustion. Our vision declines, our cells no longer know how to build and repair the body properly, and pain, inflammation, illness, and sickness can set in. We recommend a multi-polar magnet you can wear to help protect you and your family. These, along other information and devices to help protect you, are available in our office.
Phase 3: Evaluate Emotional Stress Patterns & Remove Limiting Belief Systems in the Mind / Body
Stress and emotion have been shown by the latest research to be stored in our body more than our brain. This results in chemical changes in the brain and cells, which produces energy made of electrical and magnetic nerve signals. These energies or emotions literally block the signals to the affected muscles and organs, and can cause pain or dysfunction if not identified and removed.
In acupuncture, all emotions are related to a specific organ and carried along a corresponding acupuncture meridian. For example, anger relates to the liver; fear relates to the kidney; and resentment relates to the gallbladder. This makes a lot of sense when you think about someone getting angrier when they are drunk or wetting their pants during extreme fear.
Past experiences and perceptions of them control reflex, automatic, and triggered emotional responses. These emotional reflexes can then be replayed and create interferences to normal functions in life and limit one’s ability to perceive situations properly. We have several ways to combat emotional stress. These include Neuro-Emotional Technique (NET) and other treatments we can do in the office; holistic health coaching; along with books, audios, and seminars we will recommend for overall stress management.
The body truly heals itself, if you give it what it needs to repair and heal and remove all the interferences getting in its way.
