Perhaps the most important key to lasting health is establishing and implementing a consistent formation of positive, healthy habits.  Changing habits is not easy – and that works both ways!  It is a hurdle to overcome when starting new habits, but when new, healthy habits are enacted, they are easier to maintain!  So, while putting in the work and committing to creating new habits is incumbent on you, BFFC is working behind the scenes to provide more resources to get you there!

As we’ve begun our fourth year, we are getting to know our patients on a deep, deep level.  Not only individually, but as a collective as well.  We are using this knowledge to develop new programs that we hope will provide immense value to many of our patients to create and maintain these healthy habits.  Let us know if there are any topics you’d like us to incorporate into our programs and stay tuned for more information!

If you are expecting a new little one or know someone who is, you will not want to miss this workshop! Delivered is a workshop centered on educating, empowering, and encouraging women to PLAN and ACHIEVE their optimal birth. Our goal is to encourage women to “take the wheel” on what will be one of the most meaningful journeys of their lives.

This workshop will help those who are expecting understand how “common” choices in pregnancy and birth are leading to more interventions and the long-term effects those interventions may have on the health of our children. We will discuss the realties of these interventions that others may not, and discuss alternatives and ACTION STEPS to achieve the birth experience and have the healthy, happy baby they desire!

It doesn’t matter what kind of birth you want; what matters is that it’s YOURS. Join us in our warm and welcoming office on March 10 to learn How to Achieve the Birth YOU Desire! Coffee/tea and light snacks will be provided.

We can’t wait to meet you!

Tickets are free and include appetizers and refreshments.

Perfect Storm – On-Line Edition:

If you haven’t had a chance to see Dr. Stephanie present this information live, click on this link for a video of Dr. Stephane presenting The Perfect Storm.  Listen, learn & enjoy!  Although the workshop is geared toward children – specifically children with neurodevelopmental disorders – the neurological pathways discussed are applicable to all ages (potentially even more so in adults, who may have been exposed to the stressors for much longer periods of time).  Why do we keep pushing this?  BECAUSE THE INFORMATION IS SO IMPORTANT TO YOU, YOUR FAMILY, AND GETTING THE MOST OUT OF YOUR CARE!

Chiropractic and Immunity

It’s that time of year where it seems like so many people are sick, or their energy reserves are severely depleted.  You’ve likely heard us discuss in the office how getting adjusted regularly can positively impact your immune system and we’ve heard time and again from patients who either recover from illness more quickly or bypassed illness altogether despite others in their household getting sick.  But why?  How does getting an adjustment impact immunity?

As you know from listening to Dr. Stephanie for any given time, a subluxation is an interference of the nervous system.  The nervous system and immune system are hardwired and work together to create optimal responses for the body to adapt and heal appropriately. Neural dysfunctions due to subluxations are stressful to the body and cause abnormal changes that lead to a poorly coordinated immune response. Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to boost the coordinated responses of the nervous system and immune system.

The autonomic nervous system housed in the spine is directly connected to all organs throughout the body, including the lymphoid organs such as the spleen, thymus, lymph nodes, and bone marrow that produce the body’s immune response. Immune function is regulated in part by the sympathetic division of the autonomic nervous system.

Dr. Stephanie (and wellness based chiropractors in general) analyze the spine for subluxations and give corrective adjustments to reduce the interference within the nervous system.  A 1992 research group found that when a thoracic adjustment was applied to a subluxated area the white blood cell (neutrophil) count collected rose significantly.

In 1975, Ronald Pero, Ph.D., chief of cancer prevention research at New York’s Preventive Medicine Institute and professor in Environmental Health at New York University, began researching the most scientifically valid ways to estimate individual susceptibility to various chronic diseases. He has conducted a tremendous amount of research in this area that includes over 160 published reports in peer reviewed journals.

Pero and his colleagues discovered that various DNA-repairing enzymes could be significantly altered following exposure to carcinogenic chemicals. He found strong evidence that an individual’s susceptibility to cancer could be determined by these enzymes. Lack of those enzymes, Pero said, ‘definitely limits not only your lifespan, but also your ability to resist serious disease consequences.’

Pero was fascinated by the relationship cancer-inducing agents had on the endocrine system. Since the nervous system regulates hormone balance, he hypothesized that the nervous system had to also have a strong influence on one’s susceptibility to cancer.

To support this argument he found a substantial amount of literature linking various kinds of spinal cord injuries and cancer. Pero found that these injuries led to a very high rate of lymphomas and lymphatic leukemias. This understanding led Pero to consider Chiropractic care as a means of reducing the risk of immune breakdown and disease.

Pero’s team measured 107 individuals who had received long-term Chiropractic care. The chiropractic patients were shown to have a 200% greater immune competence than people who had not received chiropractic care, and a 400% greater immune competence than people with cancer or serious diseases. Interestingly, Pero found no decline with the various age groups in the study demonstrating that the DNA repairing enzymes were just as present in long-term chiropractic senior groups as they were in the younger groups.

Pero concluded, ‘Chiropractic may optimize whatever genetic abilities you have so that you can fully resist serious disease…I have never seen a group other than this show a 200% increase over normal patients.’

In other words (as it says on the wall in Room 1), the power that made the body, heals the body.  And adjustments set up your body to work at it’s full potential.
