I have been a practicing chiropractor for 23 years now. Over these years I’ve had considerable success helping others with various health issues using basic and ever advancing techniques. However, there were always a few cases that wouldn’t resolve or that I could only help temporarily. A few years back I actually began to notice that these un-resolving cases were becoming increasingly more common…. sufficient enough to keep me humble and up at night, then out on the trail looking for answers through more training and new methods to add to my “medicine chest” or” tool kit”.
I had already incorporated basic nutrition and acupuncture principles in my practice. I began the study and practice of Nutritional Response Testing in 2007. I completed training in Advanced Clinical Nutrition in 2010. Wow! Epiphany, My questions (at least most) regarding un-resolving cases were answered.
Generally speaking….our bodies are different! Our bodies (physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually ) are not the same as they were thirty or fifty years ago, even as little as ten years ago. The thirty year old body seeking help in 2013 is different than the thirty year old body of 1990. The primary difference….A diminishing nutritional status from generation to subsequent generation, compounded by the accumulative effects of a toxic environment. Our food has become” food like products” which weaken the body making it even more susceptible to an increasingly toxic environment.
In this future doc practice, to achieve a sustained health improvement it is not only necessary to find the correct nutritional support, but also to isolate and handle common burdens or stressors that slow or prevent healing. The most common of these “burdens” include:
1. Sensitivity to a major food
2. Toxic chemical accumulation
3. Heavy Metals
4. Hidden immune challenges
5. Scars on the surface of the body
