There is a firestorm coming that will destroy our healthcare system as we know it. In fact, there are presently many fires raging in our healthcare system. We have skyrocketing healthcare costs. We have ever-soaring rates of chronic disease. Even worse, these chronic diseases such as arthritis, diabetes, heart disease and cancer now start in early childhood. We have a medical system that is the third leading cause of death in the U.S.
These raging fires are growing worse and will soon accumulate into one massive firestorm that will destroy the entire system. Worse yet, rather than stifling the flames, the continued roll out of Obamacare has only added fuel to the fire. Unless you take personal responsibility for your own health care and begin to radically shift your lifestyle, then you will likely be consumed by the flames.
Migraine headache pain can be searing and is often debilitating. It frequently causes frustrating visits to the emergency room as well. While medical treatments sometimes help relieve the painful symptoms, they fail to correct the underlying cause. As a result, the migraines continue relentlessly. They can literally change the way you live you life and rob you of much freedom and joy. However, they do not have to prevent you from the joy of living your life! It may seem impossible now but you can overcome migraine headaches!
As a chiropractic physician, I have heard many horrific stories of pain and disability from migraine sufferers. I have taken care of teenagers who have had to quit playing sports or even had to be taken out of school altogether. I have taken care of adults who have lost their jobs or had to quit their job because of the pain and dysfunction. While I have helped hundreds of people overcome migraine headaches, I can only imagine dealing with this type of pain personally.
My goal has always been to help each person identify the underlying cause of the migraine. The cause of migraines is poorly understood by the medical community. As a result, most drugs and other medical treatments tend to focus solely on the symptoms and leave the cause uncorrected. Many different drugs(1) have been used to prevent and treat migraines and all of them come with dangerous side effects.
However, correcting the cause brings long term relief and allows you to restore your life. Finding and correcting the cause is the key to healing any health condition, including migraine headaches. There is no medical cure or magic pill but there is healing for the migraine headache sufferer.
Let’s take a look at some of the most common underlying causes that interfere with normal healing. Correcting these causes has brought relief to hundreds of migraine sufferers in my practice and I know that it can help you as well.

Your potential to experience true wellness for years to come greatly depends on your brain health. Why? Because your brain controls every function and every organ in your entire body. As a result, the health of your body is a direct reflection of the health of your brain.
Unfortunately, our modern American society does not nurture great brain health. In fact, quite the opposite is promoted. From extreme levels of mental and emotional stress to brain compromising chemicals in our food supply and mind altering medications, it is very difficult to maintain good brain health.

Influenza (flu) season is here. The media and CDC have been heavily pushing the influenza vaccine for over a month already. However, research has shown that this year’s flu shot is extremely toxic, ineffective and unsafe! Did you know that the 2013-2014 influenza vaccines contain dangerous levels of mercury? The vaccine contains 25,000 times more mercury than the safety limit for drinking water! Did you know that infant and pediatric flu deaths were on the decline until 2003 when the pediatric influenza vaccine was introduced? After that, the pediatric death rate skyrocketed! Before you choose to vaccinate yourself and your children, get the facts about the influenza vaccine.
I have recently written several articles on the problems and dangers of the flu shot. Read here about why the flu shot is more dangerous than the flu. You can also read here about how the media-reported flu deaths have been hyped up in order to scare people into the flu shot. Healthcare decisions, in general, can be complicated. The vaccine decision is even more complicated due to the vast amount of conflicting information. Before you make these decisions, I urge to move past the hype and get the facts!
Most importantly, you must know that your body is intelligently designed to fight the hundreds of influenza viruses that cause the flu. Your immune system is amazingly well equipped to help you prevent colds, flu and even cancer. Developing a flu-proof immune system is an essential part of your health plan this year. You can stay well! Even if you do get sick, you can overcome the flu and heal.
This astounding report was written by Mary Tocco, independent vaccine investigator. She reveals the truth about this years influenza vaccines and the facts that the pharmaceutical industry and the CDC do not want you to know. This is information provides facts not hype. It is exactly what you need in order to confidently make your decision about the influenza vaccine.
The cure for any disease seems to be quite mythical. We assume that medical research is sincerely searching for a cure for many diseases such as cancer. Yet, to this day, there has never been a drug that has cured anything. In fact, the use of the word cure has drastically declined over the last hundred years. Not only will you never find a cure for disease, you do not even want a cure for disease!
Ask yourself which you prefer: a cure or a healing? Is it better to fight and conquer disease or to support the innate healing of your body? In the vast majority of cases, disease is not a foreign invader. Rather, it is an abnormal response of your own body. Fighting disease is fighting your own body. It is counterproductive to real health.
You do not want a cure. You need healing. Healing is not a mystical concept. It is the natural state of the human body. Your body is designed to heal itself.
Neuroplasticity is the brain’s ability to reorganize itself by forming new neural connections. Many people are familiar with negative neuroplasticity which causes increasing brain fog and memory loss, declining mental clarity and dementia. However, positive neuroplasticity can be achieved as well leading to improved cognitive functions, improved memory, elevated mood and optimized healing. Positive neuroplasticity can be stimulated in several ways. However, one of the most powerful methods to boost your brain function and healing is through chiropractic care.
