Bed Wetting

Nocturnal enuresis or bed-wetting has been shown to get great result when managed with chiropractic care.  Commonly thought to be a problem with young children who are deep sleepers, bed-wetting is an issue that affects children and young adults as old as 18 or 19.  In most cases special techniques such as alarms, special routines, punishment, not drinking after a certain hour at night and other solutions don’t work because they are not resolving the cause of the problem. 

Bed-wetting is typically due to a weakened muscle in the bladder that normally constricts and keeps any liquid from leaving the bladder.  When there is pressure on the nerves that supply this sphincter muscles, the muscle is unable to contract fully.  With a poor functioning or constricted muscles, urine is allowed to flow out of the bladder.  Chiropractors look for nerve pressure in the lower back region where the nerves travel that communicate with the muscles of the bladder.  Once the pressure is removed from the nerve with a specific adjustment by a chiropractor, the function can be restored to the sphincter muscle allowing it to prevent leaking from the bladder. 

ADHD

In the past decade, prescriptions for Ritalin, a stimulant medication commonly used for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), increased five-fold, with 90 percent of all prescriptions worldwide consumed in the United States.  Chiropractic is offering promising results with non-drug treatments that focus on postural muscles, nutrition and lifestyle changes that affect brain activity.

Doctors of chiropractic offer a non-drug and non-invasive treatment alternative for ADHD patients that target the underlying problems, not just symptoms. Motor activity—especially development of the postural muscles—is the baseline function of brain activity. Anything affecting postural muscles will influence brain development. Musculoskeletal imbalance will create imbalance of brain activity, and one part of the brain will develop faster than the other, and that's what's happening in ADHD patients. (ACA Today)

Chiropractors are trained in working with the nervous system and the musculature of the body.  By re-aligning misaligned (or subluxated) vertebrae, pressure on the nerve is removed.  With no pressure on the nerve, messages from the brain can be relayed throughout the entire body without interference. If your nervous system is working at 100% then your body is functioning the way it was made to. When you are subluxation free your body will have a greater ability to cope with physical, chemical and emotional stresses that are put on it each and every day.

Are We Healthier?

Since the creation of the USDA's food pyramid, in 1972, are we a healthier nation?   TIME magazine's 2008 article didn't think so; and 5 years later our answer would unfortunately stay the same.

It's time to start taking our health back and not mindlessly follow the USDA's standard of food safety, the Medical Association's mandates on vaccines and Big Pharma's greedy offers to fix all life's ailments; which the former two agencies produce and their own drugs create.  Disease management through vaccines, pharmaceuticals  and unnecessary medical procedures cannot take the place of a healthy lifestyle.  A healthy lifestyle includes healthy eating, but when the USDA became involved with our food supply, our food became.......well, not really food at all, but more of a big business.  It is made with cost in mind and most of it is laden with fillers, dyes, artificial preservatives, pesticides and hormones that the USDA has passed with a green light.   Yet fresh, natural, raw milk, with no hormonal or antibiotic residue, is illegal!

Wellness education is now needed to help unhealthy Americans train there brains to think before they eat, pop a pill or go under the knife.  And thinking we are!  Chiropractic, Nutritionalists, Homeopathy, Acupuncture, Massage Therapy, Physical Trainers and many more natural approaches to health are being sought out.
