The Outstanding Benefits of Chiropractic Care

There are nearly endless benefits for patients who choose to visit chiropractors in Oakdale, MN. People visit these professionals for lower back pain, headaches, neck pain, and dozens of other reasons. When you take proper care of your spine, it helps support your entire nervous system. We wanted to share a few of the greatest benefits you can expect if you choose to visit a chiropractor.

Stress Relief

If your nervous system is out of whack, this means that your skeletal and muscular systems are also out of position. This can leave your entire body feeling run down. It can also cause both mental and physical stress. A chiropractor can help bring balance back to your body and relieve any tension you are holding on to. This will leave you in a better position to manage everyday stress.

Improved Posture

When you visit one of the chiropractors in Oakdale, MN, over time the adjustments will help align your spine. This can result in a much better posture, especially in terms of the curve of your neck. Neck issues often begin when people are young, due in part to spending a lot of time looking at a computer screen or down at a mobile phone. With improved posture, you will feel stronger and stand taller.

Better Sleep

Many people suffer from sleep problems in this day and age. Those problems often stem from stress, pain, or aches. When you have regular chiropractic care, this can help your body relax and allow you to get the type of sleep you want. Getting enough sleep and having a better sleep quality can improve your overall mood and health.

Boosted Immune System

When your chiropractor is giving you an adjustment, they are also removing any subluxations that might be preventing your nervous system from working in peak condition. This is crucial since the nervous system is what sends and receives information in your body to the immune system. When the nervous system is working well, it also means your immune system is more likely to. This can help you prevent illnesses and allow you to recover from sicknesses more quickly.

At Vibrant Life Center, we offer the chiropractic care your body needs. Our services also include massage therapy, nutrition planning, and more. You can learn more about us or ask questions by visiting our website at VibrantLifeCenter.com.

Cancer: The Cause IS the Cure

The word cancer evokes scary images of your loved ones going on without you.  It is so scary that people can be driven to surgically, cut away their breasts and throw them in the trash bin in a move to beat cancer that is in their genes and coming after them.  It’s so popular, it’s adherents have a name, previvors.  

Nothing is certain in life.  I can’t tell you anything to do that will 100% protect you from a cancer.  We’ve been exposed to all kinds of things in utero, as children, at work, outside, etc…. that have long term effects that even if you did everything “right” starting today, there’s no assurances you’re not going to be one of the statistics.

You’re In Charge

We DO know that certain behaviors reduce cancer risk and have been shown to reverse some people’s cancers.  So, why not start doing them?  The pessimist would lament we’re all going to die of something… why bother?  Well, because those very people when faced with the reality that they are dealing with cancer, pull out all the stops and argue with insurers about what chemo treatment is covered and what’s not.  Everyone wants everything that can be done, done, when it’s them or they’re loved one.   But, that’s AFTER they have the diagnosis.

Newsflash!  YOU have cancer right now.

Today.  At this very moment.  Everyone does.  Every day.   Why haven’t you shriveled up and died yet in a giant ball of cancerous cells?  Because your immune system kills the 10-100 cancer cells you develop everyday.  Until it doesn’t.  Then, the cancer cells rapidly divide.  Aggressive division and multiplication of cancer cells means you have little time to dilly dally.  The diagnosis of cancer isn’t something you gained.  It’s something you lost.  The lost ability to kill cancer cells.

That fundamental understanding, that we don’t “catch” or “get” cancer,  we lose the ability to fight cancer, makes a difference in how you approach treatment and our lives prior to diagnosis.  If you believe that cancer “just happens” to some people.  There’s nothing you can do to avoid it.  We must all take a spin at the Roulette Wheel of Cancer.  Like an episode of Hunger Games.  Somebody’s gotta pay the price.  Then, you’re likely to have little interest in stopping smoking, eating differently, exercising or modifying any part of your life to keep you immune system killing cancer cells.  Because, the fundamental is, cancer just happens.  There’s nothing that can be done.

Oncologists tell cancer patients this all the time.  Oddly, when asked specifically, is their anything I can do to help my cancer?  Diet?  Anything?   The standard oncologist’s answer is ‘no’.   “You didn’t do anything to cause your cancer, therefore, there’s nothing you can do to cure your cancer.   Leave it up to us.”.

What about smoking?

Sadly, we already know what types of things result in cancer.  Smoking was huge.  Once people cut back on that, lung cancers actually declined.  But, there’s a myriad more things and behaviors that raise the risk.  And conversely, we know absolutely that certain diets and activities prevent cancer in groups of people.

The cause of cancer is inside of us.  Our behaviors, our diet, our lifestyle and our environment.  The cure then, is also inside of us.  Our behaviors, diet, lifestyle and environment.

To be cancer free we must keep our cancer killing immune system in top shape.

Top 6 Things that Weaken our Cancer Killing

Sugar.  Processed simple carbs.

Environmental toxins, pesticides, herbicides (eating conventional “food”), vaccines, solvents at work.

Watching TV or sitting at the computer.

Chronic adrenal stress (crummy relationships, sugar, difficult job)

Other immune system burdens like candida, viral and parasitic infections.

Smoking, alcohol.  Way too much oxidative stress.

Top 6 Things to Become Cancer Killing Machines

Here’s the things that help your immune system

Vitamin D3 levels at 70 or higher.

Probiotics.  Does the work of your immune system

Happy, healthy, supportive relationships.

Whole, clean, organic foods.

Exercise.  Not a ton, just get out a few times per week.

Clean up the Poker Night behaviors.

 

No need to lop off body parts.  They’re not out to kill you.  5% is genes. 95% is our behavior.

That’s good news.  So, if you’re inclined, the most bang for your buck is going to be getting your body to recognize cancer cells.  It won’t matter what the rest of the system is made up of, you’ve got to identify the cancer cells first, THEN kill them.

To Do List

This means your nervous system must be free of any interference.   That’s chiropractic.  Get adjusted. Regularly.  Not when and if something hurts.  That’s physical therapy or the practice of medicine. That’s not going to make you a Cancer Killer.  Regular care.  That’s the winning advantage.

Next, D3 and reduce processed foods, sugars and exposure to pesticides and herbicides.  So, organic foods.  Less processed, lower sugar content.  Cancer cells live on sugar.  Starve them.   D3 is integral to your immune system.  Next would be probiotics. They’re not specific to cancer, they help all immune system challenges.

3rd.  Exercise. Cancer cells also do not like oxygen. Get oxygen to the cells and your cancer cells will need to come up with a plan B for their survival.

4th.  Quit smoking, drinking etc..  I know your uncle Charlie is 93 years old a smokes Marlboros and a shot of whiskey every morning.  That’s not most of us.

Always, always, always be cultivating supportive relationships.  Life is messy. Do what you can.

You are the cause and your are the cure.

Blessings,

Dr. Barrett
