Atlas Chiropractic Compliment - For healthy people, too
FAYETTEVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA -- Up through November of 2004 I had horrible migraines everyday. I took over-the-counter and prescription drugs. I was in bed and mostly sleeping 16 to 18 hours a day. I hated life. I was to the point where being dead was better than living. My spouse was going to another chiropractor, but I wasn't impressed with their results. Finally, I met someone who convinced me to go see Dr. Karen Goldsmith at Atlas Chiropractic. She was very friendly and knowledgeable. She explained what subluxations were and the health benefits of getting chiropractic adjustments. Dr. Karen accepts most health insurances and I was on Medicare. I hadn't paid the yearly deductible ($100.00) and would have to pay it again after January. So I waited until January '05 to begin my treatments. After 3 months not only was my migraines gone, but my immune system had improved, asthma was going away, my energy was improving, and I began to feel a good general sense of well-being. Dr. Karen began teaching me some secrets about nutrition and the importance of a Mediterranean diet. I am willing to learn, and she is willing to teach. From April to June I was unable to go due to personal reasons. My health began sliding back down-hill. I have found out first hand just how effective chiropractic medicine truly is for health maintenance.
Now for some technical stuff... I may not get this completely correct, but I know I'll at least be close. In the human body EVERYTHING is connected. Bones hold us up and hold our parts together. The nerves and circulation system twist and turn and intertwine themselves closely around our bones. If a joint is even slightly out of it predesignated place, an nerve won't send proper signals and blood may not go exactly where it needs to go. This is what causes dis-ease (disease). Things like diabetes, asthma, cancer, hearing problems, depression, etc. The body has the power to heal itself IF it it unhindered by "subluxations". A chiropractor does not heal the body or cure diseases. A chiropractor enables the body to heal itself. "The power that made the body, heals the body" is one of the many wise sayings on Dr. Karen's office walls. This is why I recommend Atlas Chiropractic for healthy people, too. Who doesn't want improved energy and immune systems? Why doesn't take a pill for SOMEthing??
