ALPHA CHIROPRACTIC NEWSLETTER
This month we celebrate Thanksgiving. A special holiday when we give thanks to God and also to those who have helped us in one way or another.
On this day the families gather to share a little time together, to share a thanksgiving meal, to reflect on the past, and to create sweet memories for the future. It is the day when families not only get an opportunity to communicate with one another but also have loads of fun with each other.
Gratitude and thanksgiving should not be something we only think about and celebrate once a year. We should forms daily habits of gratitude and giving thanks for all that we have and for those special people in our lives.

Win the Lottery!
if you will.
You have in your possession a machine that can predict winning lottery numbers with 100% accuracy every single time. An exciting prospect, isn’t it? Now, you’ve tried this machine out and have won the lottery many times over and people can’t help but notice your amazing wealth.
This is where it starts to get interesting.
You’re approached constantly and asked how you’ve managed to get all this money. When you share your secret with them, some of the people laugh and walk away, stating that they don’t believe you. Others say that it sounds interesting, but it’s not for them. A few people are willing to try it, but instead of using it for the Mega-Millions, they use it for local lotteries worth only a few hundred dollars. Once they’ve won, you never hear from them again or maybe they’ll come to you when they need another couple of hundred bucks. Occasionally you get someone who really “gets it” and plays the Mega-Millions and of course, wins, which is what you want for EVERYONE.
Despite this you are surrounded by people who really need and could use money, but they walk right by you and don’t benefit from the amazing machine you have because they’ve been wrongly educated that no such machine can exist.
Do you think this might frustrate you a bit, seeing all the people whose lives could be changed if they only listened to what you had to say and actually HEARD it?
Now, let’s change things up a little, shall we? Instead of a machine that predicts winning lottery numbers, what if you had something that could allow your body to better function at all levels, with possible side benefits of improving your health, slowing down aging, allowing you to think more clearly, live longer, get sick less, handle stress better and so much more.
When people started noticing your health and vitality and asked what your secret was, you told them and the results were the same as above. Some laughed and walked away, some tried it out for an ache or a pain only, and some actually “got it” and used this service weekly to improve their health and their lives.
Would it frustrate you because you wanted EVERYONE to make this “something” part of their lifestyles because you KNEW that it worked every single time?
That’s what it’s like to be an Objective Straight Chiropractor at times. I KNOW that chiropractic works EVERY TIME. Every adjustment opens up the nerve system, allowing a clearer connection between the brain and the rest of the body for the flow of your life energy, increasing the performance of every system of the body, including the immune system.
I KNOW that this is something that should be part of everyone’s lifestyle, yet many people just don’t get it. They think health comes from a pill or they feel that chiropractic might be good for a headache or back pain, but little else, so they miss out on the amazing health benefits that they could be receiving from chiropractic adjustments.
Your body is a self-healing, self-regulating organism. If you cut your finger, it heals. You cut the finger on a corpse, you can put any ointment you want on it and cover it with a band-aid, but no healing will take place. ALL healing comes from within. ALL healing come from life.
The master controller of this self-healing and self-regulating is the brain and nerve system. It stands to reason then that if there is a disconnect between the brain and the rest of the body, self-healing and self-regulating cannot take place as they are supposed to.
What causes this disconnect? Stress! Physical, chemical, and mostly emotional stress. We ALL have stress in our lives and it takes a toll on your body. Chiropractic allows your body to process stress more efficiently and keeps your nerve system functioning as it is supposed to. Chiropractic is for EVERYONE and can literally add years to your life and more importantly life to your years!
Studies have been conducted demonstrating the tip of the iceberg when it comes to how you can benefit from regular chiropractic adjustments. One example shows how people who used regular chiropractic care were sick less and spent less money on hospital visits, surgery and drugs. This equates to lower costs, better health, less work missed, lower medical expenses, and higher productivity. A study has shown that those adjusted by a chiropractor have benefited from:
1. 60.2% decrease in hospital admissions*
2. 59.0% fewer hospital days*
3. 62.0% less outpatient surgeries and procedures*
4. 85% less pharmaceutical costs*
(* All of these savings were when compared with conventional medicine independent physician association (IPA) performance for the same health maintenance organization product in the same geography and time frame.)
These are not paltry numbers, yet these were a result of sporadic (irregular) chiropractic care. Imagine what occurs when you get checked and adjusted regularly. This is HUGE, yet for some reason some people just don’t get it.
Dick Gregory, Civil Rights Activist, made this statement after learning the truth about chiropractic: "If the public knew what it is you people really do, they'd force you to stay open at night at gunpoint so they could get their families adjusted. They'd never let you go home." He was so inspired that one of his sons became a chiropractor.
Chiropractic does not "treat" ANY specific health conditions; it addresses the HUMAN condition. By restoring and maintaining the brain-body connection, and allowing the NORMAL flow of Intelligent "Life Energy", innate intelligence can go to work restoring as normal function as possible to the body. This gives everyone the best possible chance of reaching their own, individual potential, whatever that may be for them. Isn’t that something you want for you and your family?
I make it easy and extremely affordable to make chiropractic a part of everyone’s healthy lifestyle. Please contact me and I’ll help you make it happen today!
