When you seek out a doctor, chiropractor, holistic practitioner, you probably have some pain or health issue that your looking to resolve and stabilize….looking for more BALANCE in your body and your life. This is absolutely understandable. When we have a health issue or experience some form of imbalance or instability, it is natural and healthy to seek balance and stability.
But how often do we seek out IMBALANCE and INSTABILITY? Actually, quite often! This is equally as important. This is why we go to the gym, go on vacation and reorganize our house, office or relationships. Let me explain.
When anything is stable and balanced, there is no movement or growth. It is maintained as it is. In order for there to be any movement or growth, an element of instability and imbalance must be introduced. Look at walking, for example.
Try this: Stand up with your feet shoulders width apart. Are you going anywhere? No. You are stable and in balance but standing in the same spot. In order to move forward, you must take a step. So, very, very slowly, lift your right foot and start moving it forward. You will, for a moment, feel unstable until you put your foot down in front of you, once again creating stability. Now do the same thing with the left foot. Do this over and over and you’re walking forward, moving back and forth between instability and stability / imbalance and balance. Do this exercise until you feel that fluctuation between instability and stability. This is how all things move forward and grow….fluctuating between stability and instability. You MUST have instability and imbalance in order to grow, move and heal.
Granted, too much instability and imbalance causes chaos, disorder and dysfunction, which is unhealthy. Likewise, too much balance and stability causes stagnation, tension and dysfunction, also unhealthy. The natural fluctuation between the two is what we want: This is HEALTHY!
Every time you eat something, this puts the chemistry of the body out of balance. As the body seeks the NEXT LEVEL of stability in the body, it uses the nutrients of the food to create new cells, create energy and drive function. Every time you exercise, it creates instability in the muscles and other tissues, and as the body seeks a NEW LEVEL of stability, your muscles grow and get stronger. Explore how wherever there is growth and movement, there are elements of instability and imbalance that drive that change to find NEW LEVELS of stability and balance.
In fact, when you read the title of this article, for a moment, you might have felt some instability (confusion or irritability). This was deliberate. We can’t grow or learn without an element of instability!
This is the goal of NETWORKSPINAL CHIROPRACTIC. When you first came in, there may have been areas of tension and restricted movement or chronic injury or health issue that hadn’t changed In quite some time….this is too much STABILITY AND BALANCE. The specific, gentle contacts on the spine are designed to introduce an element of INSTABILITY by triggering movement and breath in the body. Suddenly, the tension begins to release and the spine begins to move freer. We start experiencing a greater sense of EASE, instead of DIS-EASE. If there is too much INSTABLITY, a similar process restores balance through breath and connection with the body….also creating a greater sense of EASE.
If you feel you are experiencing too much INSTABILITY in your life, introduce some stability by deliberately taking calming deep breaths, meditate, spend time in nature and do more of the things you enjoy. If things are stagnant and not changing….TOO STABLE…introduce instability! Do something you wouldn’t normally do! Start exercising. Go on a trip. Go out on the town. Start a hobby. Start a business. Let your imagination go free.
In conclusion, if you have a health issue, there is either too much stability or too much instability and we can support you with creating IDEAL HEALTH through NetworkSpinal Chiropractic. Give us a call if you have any questions or would like to make an appointment for yourself and your family!
I have been hearing so much about this new conversational A.I., ChatGPT, so I decided to put it to the test. I asked it what impact stress has on health. Its answer was almost verbatim what I wrote in my last article, “Getting to the Heart of It…The Impact of Stress on Your Health and Your Life.” It also gave a great description of Network Spinal Analysis. My question is in bold followed by the response from ChatGPT. Check it out!
Tell me how stress impacts health
Stress can have a significant impact on physical and mental health. Chronic stress, in particular, can lead to a variety of health problems, including:
Heart disease: Stress can increase heart rate and blood pressure, putting a strain on the cardiovascular system.
Digestive problems: Stress can cause digestive problems, such as abdominal pain, nausea, and diarrhea.
Sleep problems: Stress can make it difficult to fall asleep or stay asleep, leading to chronic fatigue and decreased energy.
Depression and anxiety: Chronic stress can increase the risk of depression and anxiety disorders.
Immune system suppression: Stress can weaken the immune system, making the body more vulnerable to illness and infection.
Skin problems: Stress can cause skin problems, such as acne and eczema, or worsen existing skin conditions.
Reproductive problems: Stress can interfere with the menstrual cycle in women and decrease sperm count in men.
In addition to these physical health problems, stress can also have a negative impact on mental well-being, causing feelings of irritability, anger, and sadness. To maintain good health, it’s important to manage stress through relaxation techniques, physical activity, and a balanced diet. If stress becomes chronic and affects daily life, seeking professional help may be necessary.
What is the mechanism or physiology that stress has an adverse effect on health
Stress has an adverse effect on health through a complex physiological mechanism. When the body perceives stress, it activates the “fight or flight” response, which involves the release of hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline. These hormones cause physical changes in the body, such as increased heart rate, elevated blood pressure, and increased respiration.
The “fight or flight” response is designed to help the body respond to short-term stressors, but when stress is chronic, the body remains in this heightened state, which can have adverse effects on health. For example, elevated cortisol levels can weaken the immune system, making the body more susceptible to illness and infection. Cortisol can also cause changes in metabolism that lead to weight gain, particularly in the abdominal area.
In addition to physiological changes, stress can also have a direct impact on the brain. Chronic stress can alter the structure and function of the brain, leading to anxiety, depression, and other mental health problems.
Overall, the mechanisms by which stress impacts health involve complex interactions between the hormonal, physiological, and psychological responses to stress. To maintain good health, it’s important to manage stress through relaxation techniques, physical activity, and a balanced diet, and to seek help if stress becomes chronic and affects daily life.
What is Network Spinal Analysis
Network Spinal Analysis (NSA) is a type of chiropractic technique that focuses on the relationship between the spine and the nervous system. The goal of NSA is to improve spinal function and overall health by reducing tension and stress in the spine and nervous system.
During an NSA session, the chiropractor uses gentle touch to identify areas of tension and stress in the spine and nervous system. The chiropractor then applies specific adjustments to help release this tension, which is said to improve the flow of spinal fluid and promote the self-healing capacity of the body.
NSA is based on the concept that the spine and nervous system are interconnected and that changes in the spine can impact the functioning of the nervous system. By reducing tension and stress in the spine and nervous system, NSA practitioners believe that the body can move towards a state of greater balance and health.
You may have heard that Stress has a direct impact on our Health and Well-Being. Did you know that it’s not actually the stress, but how we respond to it? Let’s explore how stress impacts our bodies and what determines if it harms us or helps us.
Stress is a normal part of life. It is a change in our environment or circumstance that requires us to make a change and ADAPT. We experience this every day. Whenever we experience a stress, there are 2 basic ways we adapt. The first is that when we experience a stress that we have the physical and mental/emotional resources to handle, we GROW. We get stronger, wiser, and even more adaptable. An example of this is working out. We use a controlled weight to stress the muscles and the muscles grow and get stronger. However, if we use too much weight, we could injure ourselves…which leads to the 2nd way we adapt.
When we experience a stress that overwhelms our resources to physically and mental/emotionally to adapt, the brain detects danger to our survival and it initiates the stress response, also called Defense Physiology or Fight-or-Flight. This is an automatic, primal response that protects us in times of danger. Below is a chart of what happens when the Fight-or-Flight Response is triggered:
When we look at this list of responses, there are 3 things we must understand:
The increased blood pressure, heart rate, breathing, blood sugar, muscle tensions and dilation of the pupils is produced to give us more oxygen, energy and faculties to confront the danger or run away in order to SURVIVE. We’ve all experienced this when we are on the highway and suddenly the car in front of us slams on their brakes. You know the feeling!
Immunity, digestion and sexual function are turned off, because they require a lot of energy and they are not required when we are fighting or running away from a threat. This explains a few things. We often get sick when we are stressed because immunity is suppressed and if the threat is great enough we may even soil ourselves.
And third….and the most important thing to understand…the first thing that happens when we perceive a threat is an increase in SPINAL CORD TENSION. It is this Spinal Cord Tension that triggers the signal to release adrenalin which initiates the Fight-or-Flight response. Could this be why we emphasize the importance of having a healthy spine and nervous system free of tension? It is THE reason!
The next thing I want to show you is a list of the top 10 medical diagnoses, which will lead to my profound realization:
If you look at this list and compare it to the list of the components of the Fight-or-Flight response, you will see what I saw 20 years ago. They are the SAME LIST! Look below:
What does this mean? That these health issues are nothing more than the Long Term Effect of the body being stuckin the Stress Response. The body never recovered from the stress you experienced and is still functioning as if it is still happening….even if it happened decades ago!
In conclusion, the most important thing you can do for optimum health and well-being is to recover from past stresses and increase your Adaptability. The 2 most effective strategies I have found to accomplish this is chiropractic and meditation. The most effective methods of chiropractic and meditation I have found are Network Spinal and Self Discovery Life Mastery. These 2 things are my health-care system for myself and my family and what I promote to my clients for optimal health and well-being.
Make your spinal and nervous system health your top priority and learn some method of meditation to quiet the mind and be present and you will see long term effects that will ensure optimal health and well-being throughout your lifetime.

It is a time-honored tradition of yearly commitment to change – the New Year’s Resolution. We sit down and make a decision that this year we will begin a regular exercise program or new diet. Or perhaps we will quit smoking or spend more time with our children. Why is it that when we make these ‘resolute’ decisions, so many of these annual promises rarely last? When we resolve each year, what we are really looking for is ‘a dramatic and far-reaching change’. What we seek is a New Year’s REVOLUTION.
Often our New Year’s resolutions ‘revolve’ around actions we want to take or habits we want to change. The focus is always on the action – the Doing. To create a dramatic and far-reaching change, we must first understand that all of our actions come from what we are thinking and feeling… who we are being.
It is a common belief that ‘when I do this…then I will have that…and then I will be happy.’ For example, if I work real hard, I will have lots of money and then I will be happy. The truth is true success and happiness occur in the reverse. When you are happy with an attitude of success …you will do the things that will bring you all you desire. The being always precedes the doing and the having.
To create your New Year’s Revolution, you must first decide what you want, and then, more importantly, determine why you want it. Ask yourself why you want to exercise or go on a diet. Is it to lose weight? Is it to get in shape? But why do you want that? With each answer to why, keep asking why. Dig deeper. Are you trying to get away from or MOVING TOWARD something? Ultimately, you will find that the answer will always lead to a state of being you want to move toward…to be stronger…to be freer…to be happy.
Would you like to know a secret? Come closer…you do not have to do anything to be happy! All you need is to change your focus and decide to be happy. Ultimately, this is the decision that needs to be made…to be happy. It is an attitude. How do you be happy? Ask what it would feel like right now if you were happy. Ask yourself how a happy person would be. How would a happy person breathe…shallow or deep? What would their posture be like? How would they move? What would they be thinking? How else would they be? Once you have the answers to these questions, you have the formula to be happy. If you want to be successful… enthusiastic… compassionate, ask how a person with these qualities would be and be it by putting your attention on how it would feel right now.. You will find that once you develop these qualities, you will automatically do the things that will bring you the things that you desire.
Always start your New Year’s Revolution by developing your be. Before taking action, spend a week, or even a month, being the person who would take that action by putting your attention on the feeling of it already accomplished. You will reach a point when the feeling will be so real you will naturally take the action that will bring it forth easily and effortlessly. It will be a natural expression of who you are. Just as a flower effortlessly releases it fragrant scent and a bird naturally sings its song, so too will you naturally fulfill your New Year’s REVOLUTION.
The immune system of the body is our primary defense and “home maintenance” system. It keeps our body clean of toxins and resistant to invading organisms. It is responsible for detecting and eliminating possible pathogenic organisms such as bacteria, fungi and viruses, as well as detecting, destroying and replacing bad, damaged or defective cells from injury. It is kind of like our police and handy man all rolled into one.
Where is the immune system? If we look at our circulatory system, we can identify it. It consists of the heart, arteries, veins and capillaries all connected in a closed system. The digestive system? – Well, it starts at the mouth and winds its way through our body via the esophagus, stomach, small intestines, large intestines and ends you know where. Nervous System…Skeletal System…Lymph System…they can all be seen and identified. But where is the immune system?
IT IS IN EVERY CELL OF OUR BODY. Whereas we do have unique blood cells called Lymphocytes, Basophils, Eosinophils, etc. which we identify as components of Immunity…they do not exist in an individuated system. They roam our body searching and eliminating those organisms and toxins which may have the potential of causing harm. Although these specialized cells are “designed” to accomplish these tasks, every cell, organ, tissue of the body also has its innate ability to protect itself. In fact, the largest organ of immunity is our SKIN. It is our primary defense. Our breath is also a vital component of our immune system, expelling toxins and alien critters with every exhalation. The specialized white blood cells actually only come into play if our primary defenses are overwhelmed.
We have come to believe that when the bacteria, viruses, fungi and toxins enter our body, we get sick. In fact this is a MYTH. If tomorrow you visited a lab, you would find that your body is full of these invaders. Yet, you are not sick because your immune system keeps them in check. It is only when our immune system becomes compromised, do these invaders cause havoc.
SO…to dispel this myth: First, you are sick, your immunity falters and then the bacteria, viruses, fungi, and toxins have the opportunity to cause disease.
So, in regards to “germs”… have no fear. As long as your immune system is strong, you have nothing to worry about. Of the men, women and children exposed to germs, only a handful actually manifest the disease. The others’ immune systems are able to protect them. So I repeat: As long as your immune system is strong, there is NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT.
Next, I wish to share with you seven strategies to super-power your immune system.
7 Tips to Strengthen Your Immune System
1) “Don’t Worry, Be Happy”
Thanks to the research of Candice Pert (Discoverer of Neuropeptides and the author of the book Molecules of Emotion) and other brilliant scientists and doctors, we now know that our emotions and thoughts directly effect our immune system. In fact, a new science has emerged called PsychoNeuroImmunology – The science of the relationship between Thoughts and Emotions, Our Nervous System and Our Immune System. In fact, in the advanced sciences, they see no distinction between these systems – they are in fact, all one.
A recent study performed at the University of Ohio has demonstrated that
1) Positive Thoughts increase T-Cell counts (a powerful part of our immune system) and negative thoughts decrease T-Cell counts… and …
2) Experiences of Love increase immune function.
So close your eyes and visualize your body and immune system as strong as can be. See your self like Superman standing upon your own Fortress of Solitude with your cape blowing behind you…your chin up in the air with confidence and self-esteem. Remind yourself everyday of the beauty that still exists in our world…Rainbows…Full Moons…Sunrises…Sunsets….A Baby’s Smile…Grandma’s Soup… Jumping Dolphins… Roaring Lions… Prancing Horses… Humans singing together under candle light. There is so much to love and so much to appreciate. Remind yourself of these things everyday.
Step One in strengthening your immune system is this:
Don’t Worry…Be Happy!
2) Healthy Spine Free of Tension and Interference
Whereas the immune system is the defense and maintenance system of the body…the nervous system is the orchestrator of that system. The brain, spinal cord and nerves control everything in the body and mind. All body function and healing…perception and response…thoughts and feeling…are all controlled and organized by the nervous system.
Stresses in our life – Physical, Emotional, Chemical and Cultural – cause tension to build up in our nervous system and its surrounding structures (Spinal Column, Muscles, Tendons, etc.). Especially when those stress are overwhelming. This tension interferes with body function and healing – especially Immune Function.
NSA is a system of Wellness Care that uses very gentle touches on specific areas of the spine called “Spinal Gateways” to help identify areas of tension and entrain the body to self-regulate these areas of tension and heal. People under Network Care report that they are able to handle stress better, enjoy life more and are able to make healthier choice in their life.
So, step 2 in strengthening your immune system is to keep your spine free of tension, utilizing Chiropractic, specifically Network Spinal Analysis, as an effective tool.
3) EAT HEALTHY
Don’t allow those free radicals to get into your body begin with. Also, provide your body with the phytochemicals in plants and fruits which support a strong immune system. I outline a healthy system of eating in my book, A Clear Path to Healing, which will share with you now.
1) Drink at least 1/2 your body weight in ounces of Filtered water every day.
Our personal favorite the Waterfall by Nikken.
2) Read food labels and don’t eat anything which has ingredients that do not sound like food. (i.e. monosodium glutamate, blue #6, anything bleached, etc.)
3) Eat food in the following ratio: 75% or more Alkaline Foods – 25% or less Acid Foods. Alkaline foods are fruits and veggies…Acid is everything else. (Exceptions: Almonds, Millet and Salmon tend toward Alkaline…pomegranates are Acid fruits)
4) Specific foods high in phytochemicals:
So, step 3 in strengthening your immune system is to EAT HEALTHY!
4) ANTIOXIDANTS AND IMMUNITY STIMULANTS
Antioxidants are nutrients which eliminate from the body detrimental chemicals called Free Radicals. Free Radicals are toxins which destroy human cells and cause the immune system to work extra hard. By supplementing your diet with antioxidants, you will help clean your body of Free Radicals and give your immune system a break to focus on other things. Also, supplement your diet with nutrients which build a healthy immune systems
The Antioxidants and Immunostimulants are:
Also, Mushrooms have demonstrated themselves to strengthen immunity.
What? Mushrooms?!?!? That’s right. Mushrooms are powerful immune system supporters that have been used in the Orient and in the South American jungles for thousands of years. I am not talking about your run-of-the-mill throw in the salad mushrooms. I am speaking of specific varieties of mushrooms found only in tropical rainforests and other remote parts of the world. Such varieties as Shiitake, Maitake, oyster, enoki, reishi, astragalus and many others. These mushrooms contain powerful immune system builders called alpha and beta glucans which are not naturally produced by our bodies. They are only found in plant and animal sources.
I know of a product called Bio-Directed Immunity. It is a special blend of 20 varieties of Immune Strengthening mushrooms, organically grown under precise laboratory conditions. If you are interested in getting more information about this product and purchasing it for yourself and your family, email our Wellness Consultant at firstname.lastname@example.org
Step 4 in strengthening your immune system is supplementing your diet with ANTIOXIDANTS and MUSHROOMS
5) CLEAN ENVIRONMENT
The less work your immune system has to do, the more energy and resources it has to keep you healthy. Why bog it down with unnecessary toxins from your environment. Using an effective air and water filter actually nourishes your body’s immunity allowing it to rest, rather than putting it to work. If you are looking for very effective, affordable air or water filter system, contact our wellness consultant, Anja at email@example.com
Step 5 in strengthening your immune system is cleansing your air and water with an effective filter.
There are actually bacteria in our body that supports our health and our immune systems. These are called Probiotics ( as opposed to Antibiotics which destroy life and inhibit our immune system). These probiotic organisms live in our digestive system and have such names as Lactobacillus acidophilis and Bifidobacterium bifidum. These probiotic, immunity-strengthening bacteria are readily available through a food which is available in any supermarket – YOGURT! If you are lactose-intolerant or just do not like yogurt, probiotic supplements are available at any health-food store.
Step 6 to strengthen your immune system is to TAKE A PROBIOTIC SUPPLEMENT and/or EAT YOGURT
7) ADEQUATE EXERCISE, DEEP BREATHING AND PROPER REST
The last thing I’d like to discuss are two things which may seem diametrically opposed but they go hand-in-hand: ADEQUATE EXERCISE and PROPER REST. I go into these in very specific detail in A Clear Path to Healing, but briefly you want to get good aerobic exercise at least 5 times a week. This can be a walk, a swim, a run. Something to get the blood flowing in your veins and your breath deepened. Deep breathing supports a strong immune system.
And after exercising make sure you get proper rest. There are many strategies to improve sleep including proper posture, firm supportive mattress, meditation and the use of magnetic and far-infrared technologies. To learn more, pick up my book A Clear Path to Healing or email our Wellness Consultant, Anja at firstname.lastname@example.org
So, step 7 to strengthen your immune system is Adequate Exercise, Take Deep Breaths and Proper Rest
To Strengthen Your Immune System:
1) Don’t Worry…Be Happy
2) Keep Your Spine Free of Tension
3) Eat Healthy
4) Take Antioxidants and Immunity Stimulants
5) Take Probiotics and Eat Yogurt!
6) Filter your Air and Water
7) Get Adequate Exercise, Deep Breathe and Proper Rest
I hope you all take action on this information, so that you are strong and fearless against this little wimp – Mr. Germ
Bone and joint conditions worldwide are the most common cause of severe long-term pain and physical disability: musculoskeletal conditions include back pain, arthritis, traumatic injuries, osteoporosis, spinal deformity and childhood conditions.1 As life expectancies lengthen and changes in risk factors intensify, these conditions are expected to increase, unless new treatments and preventive measures are found.
With the challenges of Covid-19 affecting people globally, lockdown and business closure restrictions have led to a decrease in physical activities. Being less active makes people more susceptible to bone and joint issues, specifically in the form of spinal pain and disability. World Spine Day is annually on October 16 and this year, it’s particularly important to pay attention to spinal health for well-being.
Active Wellness promotes regular physical activity, which is one important component of spinal health. Good posture, using your knees when lifting heavy objects, and keeping your work environment safe are simple behaviors to adhere to. Yet, most of us tend to slip up and slouch, lift with straight legs and keep a fair amount of clutter around us. World Spine Day reminds us to stay disciplined and at the very least, sit up straight!
Experts estimate that as much as 80% of the population will experience a back problem at some time in their lives, with an estimated one billion people worldwide with spinal pain.2 Most cases of back pain tend to be mechanical and non-organic. This means they are not caused by serious conditions, such as inflammatory arthritis, infection, fracture or cancer. The spine is a complex structure of bones, joints, ligaments and muscles. Ligaments can be sprained, muscles easily strained, disks can be ruptured and joints, irritated—all leading to back pain. Poor posture, obesity and psychological stress also can cause back pain. Organic causes can be arthritis, kidney stones, kidney infections, blood clots or bone loss. Here are 10 tips to keep your spine, and therefore your bones and joints, healthy:
• Maintain a healthy diet and weight. • Receive gentle Chiropractic Adjustments to keep the spine & nervous system in great health… Of course our favorite is Network Spinal Analysis • Stay consistently active. Do what your body is comfortable with, but keep doing it every day. • Stand and sit properly. (Do not slouch and try to keep the hips level.) • Wear comfortable, low-heeled shoes that support your feet. Make sure the shoe is snug at the back of the heels. This helps prevent rolling of the foot either to the inside or the outside.3 • Lift with your knees and don’t twist your body when you’re carrying a weight. • Keep your spine aligned when sleeping. Back sleepers can place a pillow beneath the knees to reduce stress on the lower back. Side sleepers can place a pillow between the knees to keep the hips balanced. We see great results with our clients using the Kenko Sleep system and sleep products, ask Anja for more information or an in person demonstration. • Make sure you include enough calcium in your diet to keep bones strong. Kenzen BDZ® & Kenzen® Calcium Complex are your bone buddies. • Manage any pain you have with the help of a health practitioner, ask Dr Barry or Anja, our Wellness Consultant for some great solutions and avoid opiates as much as possible. • Relief from joint discomfort is available in the form of Nikken CM Complex Cream and Kenzen® Joint.
Have you ever noticed that when you buy a new car, as soon as you drive off the lot, you see that car everywhere?! Have you ever wondered why this is? The answer is actually quite simple: Whatever you have your attention on is what you will experience.
This is what I mean by: Attention is Everything!
You may also have noticed that when you have a pain in the body, even though the rest of you feels great, your attention can’t help but be pulled into that pain…like Gravity. Or, you are having a great day at work and then that one ornery client calls and you can’t help but think about them the rest of the day. Or, everything in your life may be going great, and that one troubling, problematic area of your life constantly draws your attention. Our attention is constantly being pulled in so many directions, yet the truth still holds: Whatever you have your attention on is what you will experience. Explore this for yourself and you will see the truth in that statement. The question to ask yourself is: Is my attention there because I’m having this experience…or Am I having this experience because that is where my attention is?!
The most important skill you can learn and one that is rarely taught is how to master the discipline of your attention. If attention is everything, mastering your attention is the key to mastering your life. A powerful first step to mastering your attention is a Self Discovery Life Mastery Technique called Present Moment Awareness or PMA. This is also referred to as Living in the Zone! I have practiced this technique for many years and have found it to be an invaluable tool for myself, my family and my clients. You can learn this technique here: PRESENT MOMENT AWARENESS TECHNIQUE
Once you have begun to live more and more in the Present Moment, you can then begin to learn strategies to shift your attention from those things that limit you to those that empower you: Your Ideals, Vision, Mission and Goals and then it is inspiring to take action to achieve those goals and live your Ideals and Vision.
The Self Discovery Life Mastery Coaching Process teaches, supports and empowers you to master the strategies and techniques to Master your Attention, live in the Present Moment…in the Zone…and create an inspiring Life driven by your Ideals, Purpose and Passion.
If you are feeling Bold and Ambitious and would like a free introduction to this powerful Process, e-mail email@example.com and we can set up a Zoom or Phone call. It will be an enlightening experience that will transform your life!

The most powerfully transformational reality we can explore as humans is to be fully present with our moment-to-moment life experience, to fully acknowledge and be aware of our thoughts and emotions and physical sensations as they occur. When we embrace our life in this way, everything begins to “flow” and transform in truly amazing ways!
The natural healing process of our body begins – and stored emotions and sensations that we formerly were unconscious of begin to surface. As we become aware of them and allow them to flow without resistance, without trying to “fix” them or “process” them or analyze them or “do” anything at all to them – just the act of passively observing them creates a miraculous transformation!
The “charges” that were held in our body begin to dissipate much like discharging a battery and we free more of our attention to use as we decide. We can then live with more deliberation, self-determination and the result is more freedom and clarity in our life.
The law of least effort applies fully here – how much effort does it take for the grass to grow or for birds to fly or for the Earth to whirl at an incredible speed through space! How much effort do you want to exert to live your life? If most of us ask our heart this question we will hear the intuitive answer – effortless living. When we surrender to fully experiencing each moment, our natural tendency is to live in this “eternal now” and life flows effortlessly – you meet exactly who you need to and experience exactly what you need to move your life in a more expansive and fulfilling direction…serendipity becomes the norm.
Some of us have struggled for so long that we believe it is the only way, we believe we deserve to suffer because we did not do what our parents or society programmed us to do exactly the way they told us to. Far more fundamental to who we are – our heart yearns to be free and for us to fulfill our true desires and deliver our original and unique message to the world, our life purpose, to fully express ourselves as who we are.
Most of us know all of this intellectually – the question to ask yourself is how conscious are you being? How much of the time are you being fully aware and present? How about right now? Are you aware of the room you are in or your body or the thoughts you are having right now? Are any of your identities running you on automatic? Is your mind “stuck” in the think, think, think mode with opinions about everything? Observe it right now for a moment and see…
This is all you ever need do – practice being aware of yourself and observe yourself moment-to-moment . Choose to act only from inspiration and intuition and watch the miracles begin!
If you want to deepen your ability to be conscious in every moment of life and release limitations to your joy and success – you will want to explore the Self Discovery Life Mastery Coaching. What does your intuition tell you?
Kaizen is a Japanese word that simply translates to “improvement”, yet the philosophy of Kaizen refers to “small, simple, continuous improvements.” The company of Toyota is recognized as introducing Kaizen to Japanese Industry by encouraging their employees to everyday make small, even 1%, improvements to their effectiveness and efficiency. They found that by everyone making these small improvements every day, rather than making large dramatic changes periodically, the company ran smoother and profits and growth were more consistent and predictable.
Once, Toyota demonstrated the success of implementing Kaizen, many Japanese corporations also began to incorporate this philosophy to find similar results. The Japanese Health Care System, likewise incorporated the principle of small, simple improvements with their patients and shortly after was considered the #1 provider of health care in the world by the World Health Organization.
NetworkSpinal care works in much the same way. Healing itself functions in this way. With each visit, we are looking to create sustainable change that future visits build upon. Here are some examples of the changes we are looking for on each and every visit:
Decreased tension in the Nerves, Muscles and Joints and the indicators of this tension.
Increased respiration throughout the spine.
Increased sense of well-being and ease.
Evidence of the development of the Spinal Wave (Stretch and oscillating movements in the spine)
Expansion of size and number of Spinal Gateways in the spine. (Spinal gateways are the points along the spine where I make my Network Contacts that cue the brain and nervous system to drop the defensive tension and find safety and ease through breath and movement)
Increased range of motion and improvement of posture in the spine.
See how you can bring the principle of Kaizen into your life. What is one small (even 1%) improvement you can make to your life each and every day? If you any questions or would like support with this, please let us know!
Yesterday, our son woke up with 103.7 fever. I immediately gave him a Network Adjustment followed by a gentle Toggle to his atlas. In less than an hour, his fever broke and today he has a little cough but no fever. No antibiotics. What medicine? Chiropractic, rest, positive intentions, nutritional immune boosters, lots of love and attention and the innate healing intelligence of the body. (Watch how his neck responds to the gentle Network contacts on his sacrum.)
