Chiropractic care pioneer Dr. George Goodheart developed a three-prong approach to total health encompassing the structural (spinal alignment and muscle balance), nutritional (biochemical) and emotional (psychological). His 10-step total wellness protocol is outlined below - and it's easier than you think!
STEP 1: REMOVE NERVE INTERFERENCE AND CORRECT STRUCTURAL PROBLEMS. The brain and the spinal cord control all functions in the body. If any "wires" are crossed, kinked, or otherwise going in the wrong direction, that results in decreased functions in various muscles, even organs. A custom-tailored program of spinal adjustments, cranio-sacral therapy and visceral manipulation will get everything straightened back out.
STEP 2: REBALANCE ELECTROMAGNETICS. Each of us carries our own electromagnetic energy field with us. Interactions with computers, TV's, microwaves and other modern conveniences can knock that out of whack. A painless muscle response test and carrying an inexpensive multi-polar device can help put it back where it needs to be.
STEP 3: RESET THE ADRENAL GLANDS AND CHECK FOR "GENERAL ADAPTIVE SYNDROME." Cortisol and other stress hormones have received much press of late, and deservedly so. Chronic stress causes the adrenal glands to overproduce. The result is everything from stomach irritation to weight gain (General Adaptive Syndrome). Via muscle response testing or lab testing, we check your adrenal glands for "General Adaptive Syndrome." If you test positive, we put you on a vitamin regimen to "reboot" your adrenal system.
STEP 4: REPAIR NUTRITION FOR ORGAN OR SYSTEM WEAKNESS. Sorry, but no body's perfect. Each individual's organs, be it the heart, lungs, kidneys or intestines suffer from some kind of weakness. Using muscle response or lab testing, we'll find out what yours are and recommend an effective vitamin regimen using our exclusive line of Nutri-West products.
STEP 5: REMOVE INFECTIVE ORGANISMS. Don't panic. People have been walking around with bacteria, yeast, fungi and other parasites in their bodies since the dawn of time. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, fibromyalgia and other auto-immune disorders are directly linked to infective organisms. We'll root out the "bad guys" using muscle response or lab testing and come up with the best way to get rid of them, naturally.
STEP 6: REPLACE ENZYMES AND/OR HCL. Digestive enzymes and hydrochloric acid (HCL) help our stomachs break down food for efficient elimination. Unfortunately, our modern diet of processed foods means we're not replacing these compounds as nature intended. After standard tests, we'll restore your body's natural processes using natural plant enzymes.
STEP 7: RE-INTRODUCE BOWEL FLORA. As indicated previously, we're walking around with millions of bacterium inside us, and that's totally normal. The large and small intestine in particular harbor the "good" bacteria we need to digest our food properly. Antibiotics and other medications can upset that balance. We'll put it right again with quality pro-biotic supplements.
STEP 8. REMOVE ABNORMAL EMOTIONAL PATTERNS. We all know how strong the mind/body connection is. Think of the last time you gave a public speech and sweated like a pig. That's normal. Being ridden with anxiety, depression, or memories of a past trauma isn't. Using methods such as Neuro-Biology, Thought Field Therapy and Neuro-Emotional Technique, we'll help unblock the connections that are blocking you from your true and best self.
STEP 9: REPROGRAM THE BODY FOR ALLERGIES AND SENSITIVITIES. Twenty-three distinct groups of substances are recognized as allergens. That's a lot of stuff! Using Nambudripad Allergy Elimination Technique (NAET), the Allergy and Sensitivity Elimination and Reprogramming Technique (A/SERT), acupuncture, cold laser, or other method, we'll find out what makes your allergies crazy, and make them - and you - sane again.
STEP 10: REMOVE HEAVY METALS AND OTHER TOXINS. We're not talking about your Panterra CD's, we're talking about mercury, barium, arsenic and other nasty stuff our environment's been polluted by. They've been linked to devastating diseases such as Alzheimer's, autism, even ADD/ADHD. After standard testing, we'll use homeopathic tinctures and flaxseed oil to help banish these hidden demons and get you back to thinking and feeling food.
