Diabetes GONE ~ Thank You!

A story from Evelyn:

Seven years ago I was diagnosed with Diabetes. I started with oral medication and it only got worse after two years. I was insulin dependent (self-injection). The doctors informed me that because I had Diabetes I was also at higher risk of a heart attack and so he decided to put me on cholesterol medication. I began to gain weight and feel miserable.

Then my husband was diagnosed with a rare disease which only drove my stress level higher and my eating habits as well as my rest restless syndrome worse. My arms would fall asleep in the middle of the night and I would wake up with a headache and experience neck pain daily.

I developed circulatory issues along with my blood sugar levels fluctuating from 200-350.

When my husband passed away in Jan 2010, I decided that I needed and wanted to live a long healthy life for my son and for work God had planned for my life. I began to look for holistic doctors and really could not find anything that really moved my heart. One day on the way home from work listening to the radio, I heard the Simply Healthy Doctors and decided to research their website. I found what I was looking for and immediately put my faith to work and contacted their office.

I started the recommended nutrition program; the doctors informed me that I would initially experience fatigue on my new diet, especially since I was doing it without carbohydrates. Sure enough, on the 4th day it was draining me, but by the 5th day I was feeling good.

Interestingly enough, I forgot to inject my insulin that day, so I checked my blood sugar at work and it was normal at 84. From that day forward I decided not to inject my insulin. I have regained my energy and the pain in my body, as well as my allergies have ceased.

I am excited and thankful to God to be eating better, exercising wisely and getting my adjustments.

Thank you,

Evelyn

Internal Toxins, Equally As Important As External Toxins

Most times when we think of toxins, things that we are consuming or using topically come to mind.

For example:  fluoride in our water, sugars in packaged foods, harmful plastics in water bottles, certain gases that shouldn’t be inhaled,  and processed foods. These are all examples of external toxins.

However, there is a different type of toxin that I would like to talk about today: internal toxins. Internal toxins are what come from within us to the outside, our thoughts. Just like it is vastly important to be diligent about what we are putting into our bodies, it is equally as important to monitor what is coming out of them via our thoughts and words.

Your mind is powerful! I encourage you all to make a list of positive affirmations for your life and to read them daily.

For example:

  1. I am healthy.
  2. I am beautiful.
  3. I help families achieve health.
  4. I am a successful Doctor of Chiropractic.

Remember, the 3 causes of subluxations are THOUGHTS, traumas, and toxins. Positive thoughts will allow a more subluxation-free you. And a more subluxation-free you is a healthier you!

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. (Philippians 4:8)

In health,

Chiropractic Care for Pregnancy

Many pregnant women experience lower back pain during or after pregnancy.

Pregnancy changes the body as the infant develops in the womb as the mother prepares to give birth. The abdomen enlarges which means the lower back has to carry more weight and the pelvic bones have to widen. This can cause the back to sway more, it can distress posture, and can cause joints to misalign or move improperly resulting in joint or nerve irritation/pain.

Gently performed Chiropractic adjustments for lower back and pelvic misalignments has shown to be very effective in handling the discomfort. The Chiropractic adjustment also helps with the communication between the mother and fetus for a healthy pregnancy and birthing process.

Visit your Family Chiropractor to get your nervous system checked up to ensure 100% health.

Thermography: Early Breast Cancer Detection

So I bet you’re wondering what all of this breast thermography stuff that you’ve been seeing around the office is about.  Breast thermography is an alternative form of early breast cancer detection.

Why do I recommend its use over a mammogram?  It detects changes within the breast without the use of harmful radiation exposure. It is non-invasive, there is no pain involved, and there are no associated health risks. It uses infrared imaging which may detect abnormalities that your normal shower palpation routines or mammograms may not detect. It does so by detecting new blood vessel formation. Blood vessels pop up to sustain the environment necessary for a tumor.

The best part about thermography is that it is okay for use by anyone! Whether you are pregnant, nursing, have large breasts, have had breast cancer in the past, male or female. “

A positive infrared image represents the highest known risk factor for the existence of or future development of breast cancer – 10 times more significant than any family history of the disease.” It also has 90% sensitivity for all age groups. This is, in my opinion, the best test to give increased suspicion for breast cancer. Cancer confirmation can only be done via biopsy of the region after the results of thermography.

Below is a resource for thermography by a recommended doctor in the DFW area:

The Power Is On ~ Thank You Dr. Rob!

Before receiving chiropractic care at Simply Healthy Wellness Centers I was plagued constantly with headaches, really high blood pressure and despite medication, was constantly tired, had numbness into my right fingers and hand, and pain in my left hip and abdomen. These problems affected my activities of daily living- my circuits were really messed up!

I used to think that chiropractors were doctors who specialized in giving injections to individuals who were experiencing chronic joint pain. After attending the new patient orientation at Simply Healthy Wellness Centers, I was totally blown away with the level of knowledge and expertise of the doctors and staff. The level of trust I felt was profound from the first time I spoke with the doctors, and I was ready to entrust my care to them.

My health has improved tremendously! I have not had any headaches, soreness, or stress-related tension in my shoulders, no stomach or hip pain, and the numbness in my fingers has decreased by about 90%. I am now more energized at work, my blood pressure is trending down, and I feel like a new person. The interference in the circuit breaker is removed and “THE POWER IS ON!”

Chiropractic care is the experience of God’s laws of love, health and healing. It is holistic medicine at its best. It is an opportunity to live a long life of health and vitality, obtaining wisdom and the knowledge of health and applying it.

Thank you to the staff of Simply Healthy Wellness Centers for creating the “new me!”

Chiropractic Care for Infertility

Many women experiencing issues with infertility have seen positive results through implementing regular Chiropractic care.

In a recent study published in The Journal of Vertebral Subluxation, research suggests that Chiropractic adjustments that were performed to address nerve interference caused by spinal distortions could offer hope to many women suffering from infertility.

The female subjects in these studies that were able to have successful pregnancies despite prior infertility concerns were shown to have had vertebral subluxations that were blocking off the nerve supply to the female reproductive system.

The Chiropractic treatment was shown to have positive results regardless of a woman’s age, number of years infertile, miscarriages, blocked fallopian tubes, amenorrhea, colitis, or trauma. This is a huge source of hope for couples or individuals that have been unsuccessful in their attempts to conceive naturally.

The nervous system is the communication system of the body. It is absolutely imperative to maintain that communication at 100% for proper health.
