A Beautiful Testimonial: What My Practice is All About

A Beautiful Testimonial:

What My Practice is All About

 

“I originally came to Dr. Barry Weinberg and A Place for Healing because I suffered from vertigo, migraines and lower backaches.  Lots of work stress and taking lots of medications.

Since receiving Network Chiropractic care, I’m off my meds…less tension in my back and neck.  I’m much more aware of my mind and body.  I experience very little headaches.  I used to have an episode of vertigo about every other month, but now I’ve had only 2 minor attacks during the year I’ve been coming.

I feel energetic physically and mentally under Dr. Weinberg’s care.  I now have peace and am stress free.”

This beautiful testimonial demonstrates what my practice is all about. People who have been to my practice know that I am not about fixing anything or making pain go away. Yet, when the spine and nervous system are free of tension and interference, the body seems to “magically” heal and pain, illness and injury leave the body. People who have been to my practice know that I don’t usually give instruction on nutrition, exercise and other lifestyle habits. Yet, when the spine and nervous system are free of tension and interference, people seem to “magically” know what changes they need to make in their lifestyle and make those changes.

People who have been to my practice know that I am not a counselor, life coach or therapist. Yet, when the spine and nervous system are free of tension and interference, anxiety, depression and fear tend to “magically” fade and they experience more mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.

This is what my practice is all about.

Through the gentle, honoring contacts I apply to the spine with Network Spinal Analysis chiropractic care, people connect more with their bodies and develop new strategies to release tension, use tension to create change and become more adaptable to life. Through this process, not only does the body heal, but people experience more well-being in all areas of their life in a way that they never experienced before.

This is what my practice is all about.

Empowering people to heal themselves by finding the message in their pain, tension, illness, or injury and using it as a guide and the fuel to make subtle changes in their life that produce dramatic, positive results.

This is what life is all about.

This is what I am all about.

This is what my practice is all about.

With Love,

Dr Barry

STOP BRUSHING YOUR TEETH!

STOP BRUSHING YOUR TEETH!

Have I got your attention?

You may be wondering why I would make such a ridiculous statement.
Of course we need to brush our teeth, change our oil, and talk to our loved ones.

Why?

In order for anything of value to remain healthy, it must be maintained.

Are not our spine and spinal cord as important as our teeth, car or relationships? Why do most
people not maintain their spines?

Did you know that your nervous system – brain, spinal cord and nerves – controls, coordinates
and heals every cell and organ of your body…both structure and function. The body
dysfunctions, develops disease and eventually dies without proper nerve flow.

Every day you are exposed to physical, emotional, and chemical stress. This stress places your
spine and spinal cord under tremendous pressure. This pressure causes tension in your spine
which interferes with normal organ function and your body’s ability to heal properly.

Unfortunately, this adverse pressure rarely causes pain or symptoms, yet, it always causes
interference, damage and dysfunction. This damage over time causes pain and symptoms.

Your spine must be maintained if you wish to keep it healthy, just as you maintain your teeth,
car, relationships and anything else you care for. What happens if you do not maintain these
things? They degenerate, decay and eventually break down.

Research shows that people under regular chiropractic care, including infants, children, teens,
adults and the elderly, get sick less often, handle stress better, have stronger immune systems,
and have an overall improved quality of life. Why? Because their spines are free of tension
and interference allowing all the signals from the brain, which control, coordinate and heal all
body structure and function, to reach their destination…the cells of the body.

If you are currently experiencing pain or chronic illness, can I assume that you are not
maintaining your spine?

If you do maintain your spine, I congratulate you. You are taking responsibility for your
health and taking proactive steps to improve your quality of life, prevent disease and injury
and achieve your optimum health potential.

If you are not maintaining your spine, waiting for a pain or problem to arise before going to
the chiropractor, the damage has already been done, and is very difficult to correct. Often it
is then too late and requires more severe measures such as drugs and surgery. When it comes to
health, the attitude of “don’t fix it ‘til its broke” rarely works.

By keeping your spine healthy before developing pain or disease, and maintaining a healthy spine
throughout your life, you will spend less time and money, preventing weeks, months or even years
of suffering.

Here are some tips for maintaining a Healthy Spine:

1. Chiropractic Care:
If you wish to maintain a healthy spine, first all chronic tension and interference must be
corrected. Once the spine is healthy and free of tension and interference, it is as simple as
getting adjusted 1 to 4 per month, depending on your individual needs. By doing this, you can
guarantee yourself a lifetime of optimum health and vitality.

2. Stress Reduction Strategies
There are many strategies to help reduce stress tension in the body and body, including meditating
and deep breathing.  If you wish to explore I very effective strategy I utilize in my own life, check out
Self Discovery Techniques.

3. Healthy Nutrition

  • Drink at least 1/2 your body weight in ounces of Filtered water every day.
  • 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.)
  • 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. Proper Sleep Posture
Sleep on your side or back…never on your belly.  If on your side, a pillow between your knees and cradled
in your arms helps reduce pressure in your spine.  If on your back, a pillow under your knees also reduces
spinal tension.  Also, make sure your pillow is the right size.   If on your back, your head should be slightly raised.
If on your side, your head should be level with your shoulders.

5. Basic Workspace Ergonomics

·         Back of chair should have good lumbar support

·         Seat height should be so that knees and hips are at 90 degree levels

·         Computer monitor should be directly in front of you with the top of the monitor and or below eye level

·         Desk height and chair height should be so that the elbows are 90 degree angles when typing, and hands, forearms and wrists in a straight line.

·         Sit with head and neck in an upright position, even when on phone (no holding with cheek)

·         When typing, keep shoulders relaxed and elbow close to body.

·         Ample space between legs and desk

·         Use a document holder next to monitor when typing.
Please give us a call and we would be happy to allow you to come in for a spinal check-up and
consultation with the doctor at a discounted rate. The doctor will sit down with you, listen to
your needs, do a complete spinal evaluation and recommend a plan which is best for you.

Don’t let your spine degenerate as your teeth, car engine or relationships do if you don’t
maintain them. Maintain your spine and reach your optimum health potential.

Top 3 Questions asked about Network Spinal Analysis

1)     How is Network different from “Regular” chiropractic?

Network Spinal Analysis is the evolution of chiropractic.  It is the most advanced, most effective, and most efficient chiropractic protocol available today.  Before we differentiate between Network and other methods of chiropractic, let us first define “Chiropractic.”

Chiropractic is a philosophy of health which states that the body is innately intelligent and self-healing.

Chiropractic is a science which states that the nervous system (brain, spinal cord and nerves) controls and coordinates all body functions and healing. The brain sends life supporting information through the spinal cord and nerves to all the cells, tissues and organs of the body.  Adverse tension and pressure in the nervous system, referred to as “vertebral subluxations,” interferes with the flow of this information resulting in dysfunction in the cells and tissues of the body, eventually leading to dis-ease and death.

Chiropractic is an art which analyzes the spine for the presence of adverse tension and pressure in the nervous system and through a variety of methods, corrects it.

The majority of chiropractic techniques that are currently available proclaim that the tension and interference referred to above is caused by a misaligned bone in the spine, called a vertebra.  Using  direct forces to the spine to put that bone “back in place,” it will remove the interference, restoring health.  This is “regular” chiropractic.

Network Spinal Analysis states that the misaligned bone is caused  by the underlying adverse tension in the nerve tissue, muscles and joints.  By repositioning the misaligned bone, without first removing the tension, you will be “fighting” the body.  Network therefore uses very gentle touches on very specific areas of the spine to bring the areas of adverse tension to a state of ease.  By using just the right amount of force, it allows the body to respond, rather than react.

Through this process, the brain and body actually learns strategies to be more self-aware, self-regulating and self-correcting.  By bringing the attention of the conscious mind to the areas of tension, and developing strategies of breath and movement, the nervous system is “entrained” to handle stress better, be more self-correcting and have an enhanced experience of life.

Rather than receiving “treatments” of a therapeutic nature from a “fix-it” doctor, you are receiving “entrainment lessons” from a healing teacher – the true definition of  “doctor.”

2)      How can such a light touch do anything?

                  In life, when you are in the right place, at the right time, applying the right amount of force, with the right intent, magic happens.  Whether in relationships, business or healing, in order for there to be optimum results, these four factors must be in alignment.

In Network Chiropractic, we apply this principle.  If you are on the wrong place on the spine, at the wrong time, with too much or too little force, with the wrong intent, the body will react.  However, if you are on the exact right spot on the exact right vertebra, at just the right time, matching the force of the body, in the right direction with the right intent – the body responds…and it does so, beautifully.

What do I mean by “matching the force of the body?”  Have you ever shook someone’s hand and it was like a limp fish?  Or you shook their hand and you felt like they wanted to squeeze the bones out of your fingertips.  This is not matching the force.  When two people have a good handshake, they match the force…they have rapport and it feels good.

The Network Protocol is a very specific spinal analysis which determines that exact right place on the spine to contact in a distinct sequence so that we are always doing it at the right time.  This “right place” is called the “spinal gateway” and it is an area of free energy in the spine from which the spinal tension is being generated, usually found in the neck or sacrum. A force is then applied by matching the force that the body is pushing back when you touch it.  We “shake its hand” with rapport.

How does such a gentle touch knock down 2 Million dominoes with such a gentle touch?  By lining them up in a certain sequence, it only takes a gentle touch.

By applying this gentle, quick force to this specific area of the spine, in the right sequence, the brain is made aware of the adverse tension and through movement and breath the body begins to innately work to integrate the free energy in the “spinal gateway” to free up the bound up energy that is being store in the muscles, joints, or nerve tissue.

The light touch actually doesn’t “do anything,” but bring the attention of the cognitive brain to an area it was previously disassociated from, and the body does the rest. Wow!   This is the right intent.  To make the person more aware of where and when the body holds tension and help them to develop strategies to be more self-regulating of this tension.

3)      Can chiropractic help someone with cancer, Parkinson’s disease, AIDS, MS, etc., etc., etc.?

                                The answer to this questions is Yes…and no.  If you mean, “Can Chiropractic ‘cure’ these ailments?” Then the answer is no.  If instead you mean, “Can chiropractic assist someone to heal from these conditions?”  Then the answer is an emphatic yes.

It is known today that the human body is capable of healing any disease or condition.  It is important to understand that every disease known to medical science is caused by one of two things:  1) The body and mind’s inability to adapt and respond appropriately to a physical trauma, emotional stress, or chemical toxicity;  and/or 2)  The body and mind’s inability to recover from an adaptation or response to a physical trauma, emotional stress, or chemical toxicity.

                Network chiropractic not only assists people to recover from past traumas and stresses, but research shows that when an individual is under Network care they have a stronger immune system, quicker recovery time from injury and illness, and greater ability to handle stress.

However, even if chiropractic did not change these conditions, if that individual had tension and interference in the spinal cord and nerves, do you think they would be better off with the tension and interference or without?  Obviously, you will answer, “Without.”  Therefore, the person will be helped and have an improved quality of life while in Network Care, regardless if the disease or ailment is “cured.”  While the disease may not be helped, the person will be.

The Cause of All Disease Part III – Neurological Tone

If our body is an intelligent organism perfectly organized and orchestrated, why would it lose its ability to recover, or lose any of the seven Response Abilities?  The answer lies in the concept of tone. At any one time, our nervous system and body tissues have certain degree of tone or tension.  Our current level of neurological tone, or nerve tension, determines how we perceive the world around us.  Like the guitar string, one level of tension produces one note, while by changing the tension you can produce a multitude of notes on the same string.  Just as a certain tension produces a certain note, a certain note possesses a certain tension.  Likewise, every experience produces a certain neurological tone and every neurological tone produces a specific perception of that experience.  Every situation we encounter, whether it be a traumatic event such as an automobile “on purpose” or divorce, a pleasant event such as a musical concert or family picnic, or something as simple as biting an apple or sitting in a chair, that event produces a specific tone in your nervous system allowing you to perceive the “note” of that experience.

Our nervous system has a remarkable ability to experience and respond to a wide spectrum of events and circumstances, each with its own degree and character of vibration and tone.  Sometimes, however, the level of vibration produced by the event exceeds our nervous system’s current level of adaptability.  In other words, we have an “overload.”

Have you ever had the experience of sitting in your house watching TV, while someone is using a blender in the kitchen, someone else is blow drying their hair in the bathroom, somebody is using an electric drill in the garage and somebody else is listening to the stereo in another room, when all of a sudden everything turns off and the room goes dark?  What happened?  There was an overload, and in order to protect the electrical integrity of your home, a fuse blew, breaking the circuit.

Just as the electrical system of the house has a circuit breaker in order to protect the integrity of the system from becoming damaged, the nervous system has a similar protective mechanism. It is called a Vertebral Subluxation.  A vertebral subluxation is a condition of the spinal cord in which the body changes the position and tension of the nerve tissue and its surrounding structures (the vertebrae) in order to prevent an “overload” of stress that can damage the brain and other nerve structures.

Just as with the circuit breaker in the house, this is designed as a temporary measure to protect the integrity of the system.  Once the surge of energy or vibration has passed, the circuit breaker switch can be returned to its proper position and the electricity is returned to normal.  However, until this is done all remains dark and energy stops flowing through the system effectively.

In the human body, the majority of vertebral subluxations are self-corrected, especially during sleep.  However, sometimes the vertebral subluxation may interfere with the body’s ability to self-correct, causing the body to become “stuck,” creating a “Catch-22” in which the subluxation and nerve interference becomes a self-perpetuating dilemma.  When this occurs, the signals that travel through the nervous system, between brain and body, continue to be interfered with and the body can not function properly.  Our body  “remains in the dark” and no energy can flow through it.  There is an interference in the system.  In fact, the word subluxation, when broken into its Latin roots means sub- “less than,” -lux-, “light,” and –ation, “a condition of.”  In other words, a vertebral subluxation is a condition of less light in the body.  In this state, the body continues to function as if the stress that caused the subluxation is still happening. The body has adapted to the stress, but failed to recover.  When this is occurring a strategy such as Network Spinal Analysis is a very effective to increase your nervous system’s ability to handle greater degrees of stress and to release chronic tension patterns and restore your nervous system’s ability to  to self-correct.
