October 2017 Newsletter and hours
Please note the following changes to our schedule:
We will be CLOSEDFriday-SaturdayOctober 13-14th, and 20-21stto attend conferences in GA and NJ.
Well, the last week of September Lori and I traveled to the beautiful, tropical state of Wisconsin. I know that seems like an odd choice of vacation spots and you would be absolutely right. Although the state is very beautiful and we did get to go hiking once in Devils Gate State Park, we spent several days in a seminar put on by Standard Process and learned more about nutrition and nutritional supplements to help you and your family. The conference took place at and near their farm and processing plant. We did get to inspect the farm (over 600 acres of it and growing) and we were taken on a tour of their processing plant and laboratories which is less than a mile from where they grow the organic produce they use to make the supplements. Believe me, they're VERY picky about their organic status and purity of their products and they go to great lengths to ensure that they keep their organic status on their farm. Lori and I were very impressed since we've been using these products ourselves for nearly 26 years. We chose to use Standard Process for Lori's prenatal vitamin regime 25 years ago since the vitamins are of such high quality. Back then we merely trusted they were the best quality you could find, now we know beyond a shadow of a doubt that they are.
Of course, Lori will be doing the nutritional supplementation consultations in the office but now I have a working knowledge of the products and can suggest specific supplements to her for individual patients as well. For now, I'm just too busy adjusting to get involved with the nutritional side of the practice so, again, I ask that you respect that boundary in the office. I will be glad to speak with you about supplements after hours by email or phone but I want to concentrate on Chiropractic when I'm in the office and Lori knows WAY more than I do at this point.
Having said that, we learned some VERY COOL natural ways of taking care of some very common problems with whole food supplements and herbs. I myself am going to order a 21 day detoxification program from Standard Process. I'm going to do it myself just as a reboot because of it's ability to reduce toxins, reduce inflammation, and provide a nice side effect of weight loss in the process. We were told that the average person loses 9 lbs on this program but some have done much better. It's important to note this is NOT a weight loss program. Weight loss as a result of this one group of supplements called the '21 day purification program' is merely the side effect of eating an extremely clean diet with their 'shakes' and supplements that support several organ systems in the process. Let me know in the office, by telling the front desk receptionist, if you would like a live presentation by Lori and I on the detox/ purification program to explain how and why it works. We might consider doing that one evening if there's enough interest.
How's this for exciting... there are specific and effective protocols we learned using whole food supplements and herbs to support many common conditions that people come into the office with in addition to the subluxations they have. Some of the protocols for supplements even help patients hold an adjustment longer.("Supports" is the lingo you have to use when talking about supplements because of our friends at the FDA, so you can read in between the lines if you deem it appropriate.)
Here are a few examples:
Overall vitamin + mineral deficiencies- Catalyn+ Min-tran
Digestive support-Zypan(I saw this work first hand this weekend- wow)
Immune system support-Congaplex
Blood sugar support-Diaplex
liver support- AF Betafood(Primarily beet juice so eat your raw beets or take this!)
Allergies support- Antronex
Probiotic support- Prosymbiotic+ Zymax(wow, this stuff is well researched!! Intestinal health IS immune system health!!)
Under a lot of stress?? Adrenal support- Drenamin to repair the adrenal glands, Adrenal Dessicated as a first aide short term help. (Feel burnt out or want to strangle someone? Talk to Lori about your adrenal glands!)
How about everyone asking, "How do I hold my adjustments longer?" Well, here's a possible solution: Musculo-skeletal support- Ligaplex2, Fish oil and Boswallia (This is a little different than the Ligaplex1 I've been taking with Glucosomine Synergy for my joints. Ask Lori to explain this a little more if you have any questions.)
We were also taught about supplements that act VERY QUICKLY, like in minutes or hours for constipation, sore throats, raw or irritable stomach, super burned out adrenal glands, female cramping, and allergies.
Can you tell I found the seminar very informative and exciting? The above is only a fraction of what we learned in the seminar.If you want to explore these and other supplements on the Standard Process website, you can do so with your own Patient Direct account! This allows you to purchase the supplements you want directly from the company. We can sign you up for that after a mandatory one on one consult that the company requires.Even the workers at the farm and processing plant have to go through their on staff chiropractor or nutritionist to be able to receive their monthly allowance of whole food supplements. They take this very seriously. The best way to meet with Lori is to fill out the system survey found next to the front desk and turn it in to our receptionist or email it to Lori at email@example.com.

I wanted to give everyone a heads up that as of January we will be having a cost of living increase in our fees. We're going to be charging 30an adjustment for our patients that have been in within the last 30 days to make maintenance care affordable. The fee will return to last year's fee of 40 an adjustment for those that come to the office less than once a month. The Senior fee will be $25 as it was last year. I promise more details will follow in the next two months and the fees will not change until January 1st.
Lastly, I wanted to share great new chiropractic research just published. Even with advances in nutrition, exercise, etc... In the end, the Chiropractic Adjustment is so essential to good health.
