4 Tips for a Healthy Thanksgiving

Date: November 22, 2017 | Time: 4:15pm | Posted By: John Paul Condon

Thanksgiving is a time to offer thanks, of family gatherings and holiday meals. It is a time of turkey, stuffing, and pumpkin pie. It is also a time for candy corn, holiday parades and giant balloons. Here are five tips to also make it as healthy and thankful as you can:

1. Begin and end your day with a private time of reflection. Make a list of all you are deeply thankful for and then express your gratitude for each one.

2. Don't go it alone. Involve family and friends in planning and preparation. Use this as a bonding and relating time to build stronger relationships and learn new things about the people in your life.

3. Be sure your menu includes a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables. Color (red, green, and yellow) is a good indication of high nutrient value. Fresh cut vegetables make great, healthy appetizers.

4. Use up those extra calories. Watching football on TV doesn't adequately use the extra calories from the Thanksgiving meal! Get the group off the couch and moving after the big feast. Plan a nature walk, toss a Frisbee, play volleyball or touch football, or anything else that will get everyone moving a little bit. Make this an annual event.

SPECIAL FLU VACCINE REPORT

Date: November 17, 2017 | Time: 11:56am | Posted By: John Paul Condon

Three important reasons to avoid the flu shot:
530f2ff8 d935 4a3c 9bcc c83ceb2110be

1. The flu shot contains mercury, formaldehyde, gelatin & traces of chicken cells.
2. The flu shot contains viral contaminants that have been linked to cancer.
3. You can get the flu shot - and all the risks that go with it - and still gets the flu.

Avoid the shot: help prevent Alzheimer's Disease
According to Hugh Fudenberg, MD the worlds leading immunodeficient and 13th most quoted biologist of our time (over 850 papers in peer reviewed journals), if an individual has five consecutive flu shots their chance of getting Alzheimer's is ten times higher. (1)

How does the flu shot cause Alzheimer's? Dr. Fudenberg states the mercury in flu shots (and many childhood shots as well as some RhoGam shots) cross the blood-brain barrier causing brain damage. Mercury has also been linked to ADHD and autism. Alzheimer's is expected to quadruple. Are flu shot the reason? (2)

How many really die of the flu?

Reports claim that "Influenza kills 30,000 to 40,000 Americans every year." (3) That is simply not the case. According to the Centers for Disease Control, the numbers of people who die of the flu are a fraction of that.

Flu shot does not save lives in the elderly. The elderly are considered a "high risk group" that is told to get a flu shot to reduce mortality. According to a study in the Archives of Internal Medicine, however, the flu vaccine is not preventing death in the elderly.

how to deal with stress


How your body deals with stress and tension can make a big difference in life. Vertebral subluxations place unnecessary tension and strain on your nervous system and spine. This interference causes your life to suffer from a lack of coordination and harmony. With stress already placed on your nervous system, further stress (i.e. -job, family, school, etc.) can not be adequately dealt with and diposed of. This accumulation of stress makes your body less adaptable and more prone to break down.

Having ease in your spine and nerve system makes life easier.

REGARDLESS OF YOUR HEALTH CONDITION

Date: September 7, 2017 | Time: 12:04pm | Posted By: John Paul Condon

Chiropractic Care can help you!

Charlotte- From your immune system to your vision, hearing and digestive track, chiropractic care can help you. Michelle Rook, a student who has suffered from hip pain and migraines for years, turned to this type of care help. "The alignments I have had have fixed my problems and now I've been able to join the swim team at my school and be more athletic," said Rock, who complained of never having been able to run and do sports because of the pain. Dr. Chris DeGeorge, with Upper Cervical Health Centers of America, says the head shifting off the center of the top of the neck can affect the immune system, among other things. He adjusts the top two vertebrae, the atlas and axis, which are especially vulnerable to injury or misalignment. "If the body is functioning properly, the body has the ability to ward off most germs and illness," he said.

Here at the Chiropractic Life Center, Dr. Condon adjusts you to get you out of pain, and even more so to allow your body to function at 100%. People under chiropractic care notice many benefits, including better sleep, more clarity/focus, fewer missed days at school and work, and over all better feelings about life!

On going to bed, relieve yourself of the day's problems and accept the last thoughts you have at night as the thoughts you want to ring through your subconscious mind all night.

Genius at Work

th
Did you ever stop to think that you are a genius?
You may not have always viewed yourself as a genius, but you really are one! Everyday you do things that the smartest scientists cannot do. Do you realize that your heart pumps 2,100 gallons of blood through 62,000 miles of blood vessels everyday? Every second 8,000,000 red blood cells are produced. Forty-five miles of nerves send impulses as rapidly as 325 miles per hour. You breathe one pint of air 17 times a minute; about 78 million gallons are taken in during the average life span, enough to fill the Hindenburgh airship once and a half times. The brain, a three pound organ, stores 100 trillion bits of information over the course of 70 years, equal to 500,000 set of the Encyclopedia Britannica, which if stacked up would reach 442 miles high.
brain and spinal cord on model highlighted


You do these things and millions of other things because there is a genius inside you. This genius that is inside of you is called your innate intelligence. This incredible creative wisdom that is inside of you is on the job 24 hours a day, it never sleeps even though you are sleeping. Could you imagine having a mentally control your heart to beat? Your innate intelligence does it for you and you never have to think about it. How does this innate intelligence get its work done?

The body gets its messages from one part of the body to the other by the brain and spinal cord. Like internal telephone lines, our nerves send message all over the body. The delicate internal nerve network in the body is protected by the spine.

Chiropractors look for subluxations in the spine that can cause interference in this amazing innate intelligence. Chiropractors are the only professionals dedicated to finding and correcting these spinal interference call vertebral subluxations, so that you can experience more living in your life and more energy in your living!
sc1

No matter what kind of exercise you do, diet you eat or restful activity you take part in, if the messages from your brain do not properly reach each and every cell of your body, you will never be all you can be in your lifetime. Any interference in your spine directly interferes with the life energy and information channels in the body. Interference results in a less flexible spine and nerve system, and blocks your ability to be happy and healthy. People all ages and all positions in life have interference in their spines at one time or another.

Get your spine checked on a regular basis, so that the genius within you can let you experience a greater body and life. <view entire article>





Excuses Begone!

Dr. Wayne Dyer has developed in his books a list of excuses that limit us. The affirmations that follow will assist you in making a conscious effort to encourage yourself to elevate your beliefs unquestionably!

If you find one that fits, drop the excuse and repeat the affirmation daily.

  1. It will be difficult: I have the ability to accomplish any task I set my mind to with ease and comfort.
  2. It's going to be risky: Being myself involves NO risks. It is my ultimate truth, and I live it fearlessly.
  3. It will take a long time: I have infinite patience when it comes to fulfilling my destiny.
  4. There will be family drama: I would rather be loathed for who I am than loved for who I am not.
  5. I don't deserve it: I am a Divine creation, a piece of God. Therefore, I cannot be undeserving.
  6. It's not my nature: My essential nature is perfect and faultless. It is to this nature that I return.
  7. I can't afford it: I am connected to an unlimited source of abundance.
  8. No one will help me: The right circumstances and the right people are already here and will show up on time
  9. It has never happened before: I am willing to attract all that I desire, beginning here and now.
  10. I'm not strong enough: I have access to unlimited assistance. My strength comes from my connection to my source of being.

  12. I'm too old (or not old enough): I am an infinite being. The age of my body has no bearing on what I do or who I am.
  13. The rules wont let me: I live my life according to Divine rules.

  15. I don't have the energy: I feel passionately about my life, and this passion fills me excitement and energy.
  16. It's my personal family history: I live in the present moment by being grateful for all of my life experiences as a child.
  17. I'm too busy: As I unclutter my life, I free myself to answer the callings of my soul.

FREEDOM- CHIROPRACTIC STYLE

Date: July 13, 2017 | Time: 10:40am | Posted By: John Paul Condon

Freedom is a very powerful word. Freedom is the ability to exercise choice. Freedom is also the capacity to engage in certain actions without interference, The concept and principles of freedom are enormous; countries have been founded on it, societies run by it and wars have been fought over it. Chiropractic care shares many similarities with the definitions that are mentioned above because it offers freedom for people who choose to use it.
freedom

Most people think of chiropractic care as a natural treatment of an ache or an injury, the freedom from pain. This can be valuable to the person suffering from discomfort. It alows them to resume their normal activities, return to work or sleep through the night. They can do their homework, earn the money they need to support their family or have energy throughout the day when the pain is no longer there, normal routines return.

People who chose regular chiropractic care enjoy freedom of movement. Their spines and nervous systems become stronger over time. This allows them the opportunity to use their body as it was designed. This means that many people can do things they haven't been able to do. Grandparents are able to pick up their grandchildren; people can ski for a whole day or complete a full round of golf. As the movement returns to the body, their quality of life improves.

When health returns to the spine and nervous system, other people enjoy freedom from medications. For some, they no longer have to take antacids to relive ulcer discomfort. Others can cut back on blood pressure pills, or they no longer need them. The overall health of the individual improves. The body is able to use what it already has on the inside. It doesn't need chemical help from the outside.

The most powerful aspect of lifetime chiropractic care is the freedom from fear. This is the knowledge that your body is capable of standing up to what challenges the environment may throw at you. You know that you have the best doctor in the world working inside of you. You can rely only on yourself for health. When the media talks about the latest virus being reported in your area, rather than feeling threatened, you resolve to keep your immune system primed with good nutrition, restful sleep, regular exercise, reducing and purging the stress in your life and receiving regular chiropractic tune-ups.

Regular chiropractic care offers many benefits that those who choose to use it. Less pain, more mobility, a stronger immune system and a higher quality of life, just to mention a few. <view entire article>

    6 Principles of Cancer Prevention

    Date: May 25, 2017 | Time: 10:29am | Posted By: John Paul Condon

    Principle #1: Get adjusted- Studies show that cancer patients who received Chiropractic adjustments had less pain and reported a higher quality of life. Chiropractic adjustments release the body's inner healer, allowing your body the best chance of possible to heal and to deal with cancer as well as other diseases and health problems.

    Principle #2: Balance pH- in order to have optimal health, the body must maintain the proper internal pH. Ask us how to test your own pH. Eat lots of fresh, organic fruits and vegetables daily. Get on our *Superfood Trio especially the *Coral minerals. These will be the best way to create a healthier pH.

    Principle #3: Strengthen the Immune System- the body normally and regularly produces cancer cells. A healthy immune system is able to recognize and destroy these unhealthy cells. Keep your immune system strong with our *Allicidin, *Nucleotides and *Colostrum.

    Principle #4: Detoxify- Eliminate toxins from your lifestyle, eliminate refined and processed foods, toxic cleaning products, and chlorinated and fluoridated water. Also eliminate microwaved or radiated foods and protect yourself from electrical equipment with *EMF protectors.

    Principle #5: Use Antioxidants-antioxidants protect the body from free radical damage thereby reducing cancer risk. They also help with the negative effects of radiation and Chemotherapy. We recommend *DHLA nano-plex and our *Super-nano green tea extract.

    Principle #6: Increase Joy and Pleasure- one German study shows a commonality that all cancer patients experienced a trauma and an unresolved issue shortly before the cancer developed. Stress reduces immune function. So, find things that make you laugh, take a walk on the beach, dance to your favorite music, meditate, get adjusted, go to the spa for the day. You can also reduce stress by taking supplements such as our *Max-stress B-nano.

    Seek out professional assistance in designing the healing approach that is right for you-remember there is hope!

      No one wants to be the "ONE."

      If I am going to be the "ONE," I am going to be the one that lives in the balance of the equation. I want to be one of the 4 of the 5 that doesn't ... or the 7 of 8, or the 1 in 2 that you don't hear about because I don't "get it," whatever "it" is.

      77% of cancers are preventable. 7 out of 8 deaths are preventable. That means 7 out of 8 people are suffering and dying early and unnecessarily.

      Be the statistic that no one hears about, the one that goes through life living fully happily, and enjoying a long and healthy, vibrant life.

      How much more will you be, contribute, or offer your family and the world by committing to being healthy, happy, clear minded, and the best version of yourself?

      7 WAYS TO EXPLODE INTO HEALTH

      Date: May 4, 2017 | Time: 10:09am | Posted By: John Paul Condon

      1. Exercise- it will help you:
      • Sleep better
      • Lose weight, gain weight, or maintain weight, depending on your needs
      • Improve your resistance to fight infections
      • Lower your risk of cancer, heart disease and diabetes
      • Help your brain work better; making you smarter
      2. Eat at home- common sense indicates, and studies have shown, that people who prepare their own meals have healthier diets than those who don't.

      3. Unplug your TV- the average American watches 4.5 hours of television EVERY day. The greatest argument for limiting your family time in front of a television is the completely adverse effect it can have on your child's health and, specifically, the spread of childhood obesity.

      4. Do a Colon cleanse- our Nature's Sunshine Psyllium cleanse will make you feel GREAT!

      5. Get adjusted at least 3 times per week- get super-charged!

      There are 2 reasons people get sick


      11. They are deficient in a requirement to express health. This could be a vitamin or mineral. It could be water or oxygen. It could be movement of the body.

      22. They have something toxic in their system. This could be withheld anger. It could be artificial colors from foods. It could be drugs, alcohol, caffeine, or nicotine.

      These are chronic stressors. So how do we get and stay well? Imagine this analogy.
      We are born into a swimming pool with a backpack and a flotation device. The flotation device has a small leak in it that will last about 120 years. This is the average life expectancy. What stress represents in your life is a rock in the backpack. Every time you put a rock in that backpack, you sink a little lower in the water. Day to day life becomes more of a struggle and it is harder to keep your head above water.

      Do you think that the answer to that backpack full of rocks is to take a blood pressure medicine to keep your blood pressure down? What drug can fix a problem caused by not enough nutrients in the diet, or caused by chronic subluxation or caused by sedentary living?
      *Spending on prescription drugs in the United States has risen nearly 600% since 1990
      *Adverse drug reactions reported by the Food and Drug Administration tripled between 1995 and 2005, and research finds these reactions are the fourth leading cause of death in the United States.


      Hunt, et al. "The Changing Face of Chronic Illness in Management on Primary Care." Ann. Fam. Med. 2012; 10: 452-60


      Chronic Illness is a lifestyle issue. It is a rock-in-the-backpack issue. And until we learn how to take the rocks out of the backpack, there is no chance to regain health.
      Your body is a self-healing, self-regulating system. Subluxations are rocks in the backpack. Chiropractic adjustments remove those rocks from the backpack and allow the body to self-heal and self-regulate as nature intended.
      Questions for your life: Are you trying to change your physiology from the outside-in OR are you releasing the innate intelligence of the body to regulate what it needs to? <view entire article>

      House on Fire!

      House 2Bon 2Bfire

      If your house suddenly caught on fire who would you call?
      Answer: the fire department
      The fire department comes in and uses their tools-hammers and hoses-to spray out the fire, break down doors and windows. This is necessary to stop the fire, but we are left with a mess. If they leave such a mess, is it good that we called them? Yes!!!! But should we call them back the next day to clean it all up? No, we would call a clean up crew.

      This is an analogy to your health. Your body is the house. The fire represents cancer, heart disease, etc. If your health were in a state of emergency, you would absolutely call the fire department also known as the medics. They would use their tools of drugs and surgery to put out the fire. But they would leave you a mess. The same question remains,would you use them to restore health and balance to your body? No. You would call in the repair and maintenance department, also known as your chiropractor!

      Chiropractic adjustments along with a healthy lifestyle habits restore and maintain health over the long term. Get adjusted today!

      GERMS AND DUST MAY MAKE YOU HEALTHIER!

      germs
      From a study done in Europe comes evidence that children's immune system works better when they are exposed to germs, dust and dirt at an early age. The studies were published in the September 19, 2002 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine, (NEJM), and in the August 28, 2002 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).

      The article in the NEJM starts off by stating, "It is known that children of elementary-school age who live on a farm are less likely to have asthma than their counterparts from non-farming households." The article in JAMA states, "Exposure to 2 or more dogs or cats in the first year of life may reduce subsequent risk of allergic sensitization to multiple allergens during childhood."

      What both these articles are saying is that it is a needed part of development for children to be exposed to certain amounts of germs and other irritants in order for their immune systems to develop properly and give adequate protection later in life. In the study, children from parts of Austria, Germany, and Switzerland where there were both farming and non-farming households were studied. The investigators related the level of exposure to endotoxin (such as dust and germs), determined by sampling dust from the mattresses where the children slept, to the prevalence of asthma and other related conditions. The greater the endotoxin exposure, the less likely it was that children had asthma.

      These findings are completely opposite of what most doctors were telling their patients over the past several decades. The results of the study showed that just 3% of farm children had the common type of asthma known as atopic and 4% had hay fever. In non-farming households, 6% had atopic asthma and almost 11 hay fever. This showed that exposure to farming in the first year of life was especially protective. In the U.S., the asthma rate rose about 74% between 1980 and 1996 but decreased slightly by 1999, the most recent year available, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. About 10.5 million Americans have asthma, and 24.8 million have hay fever.

      These findings, combined with similar findings from other studies, have borne a whole new tyle of thinking and theory. The theory is known as the "hygiene hypothesis." It holds that early contact with some germs arms the maturing immune system against some allergic conditions. Some research, in fact has suggested that children who are exposed early on to pets or to lots of other youngsters at day care are less likely to get colds or allergies later on. Supporters of the new theory suspect that indoor plumbing, cleaner and more airtight homes, and antibiotics have contributed to an explosion in allergies in industrialized countries.

      In our office, we know that Chiropractic adjustments help tremendously in building a strong immune system. Our patients see great results with asthma and allergies as well as other immune issues. Chiropractic adjustments activate the T-helper cells, lymphocytes, and other important players in the immune response.
