The four essentials of life are food, water, water, and NERVE SUPPLY.

Happy Cinco de Mayo! This holiday—not to be confused with Mexican Independence Day (September 16th)—has gained so much popularity that some say its significance in the U.S. has now surpassed that in Mexico. Wow! A 1998 study in the Journal of American Culture, statistics noted that there were more than 120 official U.S. celebrations of Cinco de Mayo, found in 21 different states. By 2006, it was found that the number of official Cinco de Mayo events had increased to 150 or more.
Here’s a quick recipe for tasty guacamole!
Great with tortilla chips or as a topping for Mexican foods!
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 ripe tomato, chopped
1 lime, juiced
salt and pepper to taste
Peel and mash avocados in a medium serving bowl. Stir in onion, garlic, tomato, lime juice, salt & pepper. Season with remaining lime juice and salt and pepper to taste. Chill for half an hour to blend flavors.
The power of this treatment is incredible! I have had a very bad issue with my hands for six months and after just one session I was able to see a remarkable improvement! Thank you very much, Jamie.
As we snowbirded South, we visited our chiropractor in East Point, Florida. She commented on how well I was holding my adjustments, and I attribute that to Dr. Jamie’s care!

Healing Myth # 15
Healing means feeling better
Healing does not always mean that we will feel better. We cannot heal what we cannot feel, and healing often requires us to feel things we don’t like feeling. If we believe the myth that “healing means feeling better”, then feeling better becomes our objective instead of simply feeling what our body-mind must feel in order to heal.
The consequences of accepting this myth are twofold: First, it forces us to suppress, combat, or alleviate any circumstance, situation, or awareness that alters the way we are accustomed to living our lives. Taking a painkiller or antidepressant may offer temporary relief that lets us carry on as we did before without being aware of, or responsive to, the needs of our body-mind. The benefits derived from our actions may, at best, provide temporary relief from the knowledge that we are not expressing the life we are capable of living. To heal our body and our mind, and to express more of our spirit, our body-mind must first become aware that something needs to be remedied. Once our biology becomes aware of the need, life naturally brings the appropriate elements into play and provides the “medicine” necessary to heal us.
The Chemistry Of Light
People are often amazed and bewildered—as well as skeptical—when they hear all the amazing things that chiropractic care can do for someone’s health. They often say, “Well, I thought your spine and getting adjusted had to do with your back.” As we always say, it really has to do with your life. What’s important to note is that numerous health conditions are related to your chemical makeup—having too much or too little of something. For example, too much or too little stomach acid; too much or too little serotonin.
What produces your body’s chemicals? If you look at any anatomy text, you find that glands produce the chemicals of your body. What controls the glands? All glands in your body are coordinated by the nervous system. Your nervous system has to tell your glands how much (the quantity) and also when to release chemicals. Changes in body chemistry can occur due to glands not producing the right chemicals, which in turn is due to the nervous system being irritated. The bottom line—it’s a good idea to help the nervous system function at its optimum level so the body and its chemistry can be spot-on.
By maintaining nerve pressure, you make it possible for the body to communicate vital information over from the nerves to your glands. Then those glands can make minuscule changes in the amounts and frequency of secretion of different chemicals. By preventing unnecessary deviations from your own personal chemistry norms, you can keep your body in harmony, avoid the need to take man-made chemical cocktails, and maintain your health from the inside out.
The 12 Stages of Healing
Stage 4: Reclaiming our Power
Stage Four is one of the more interesting stages of healing because it offers a variety of challenges that can divert us from healing. At the beginning of this stage, we again arrive at an important bifurcation point; we reach a fork in the road in our healing journey and can choose one of two paths, a choice that will determine the direction of our healing process.
As we enter the first path — the one most commonly chosen — we say, “I’ve had it! No more!” We separate ourselves from our suffering by actively rejecting our symptoms, pain, or the apparent source of our suffering. We may leave a relationship, undergo surgery, quit our job, or sell the house. We want to do everything possible to remove ourselves from our distress.
The other path — the one less often chosen — involves a different state of awareness. Although we may still say to ourselves, “No more!”, this statement often followed by, “I cannot continue getting myself into these situations.” Rather than wanting to separate from the apparent cause of our suffering, we assume a greater degree of responsibility for the deeper, less obvious factors that may underlie our situation.
As we find order in our own personal chaos, we may find ourselves saying, “Please don’t let me dishonor myself anymore,” or “Please guide me in honoring myself.” The end goal for this stage is to honor ourselves, take our power back, and reclaim our wholeness.
The 12 Stages of Healing
Stage 3: Stuck in a Perspective
As we enter Stage Three, we still feel that our old injury, disease or trauma is the cause of our current problems. Often, we will experience an uneasy feeling that “my body (or mind) is holding onto something” or “I want to move ahead, but I can’t”. In other words, we realize we are stuck in an old way of seeing things — we are stuck in a perspective. We recognize that the pattern or process we observed in Stage Two is somehow connected to how we perceive or adapt to life. Now, in Stage Three, we begin to develop a stronger sense of self along with the strength that allows us to assume a greater degree of responsibility toward our situation. Stage Three is very powerful because it serves as a bridge between being in suffering and doing something about it. Some people remain in Stage Three for a long time. They speak about how their old heart attacks or bad backs still affect them today, but they move no further, or they stay stuck for many years in a relationship or a job they do not like. People who consistently experience muscle aches and pains, sore and stiff joints, and neck pain, often have difficulty moving through this stage, because the awareness of being stuck takes place only as the ‘stuckness’ starts releasing. Others may move through Stage Three in a matter of days or minutes. Whatever the time period may be, surrendering to the consciousness of this stage is essential for moving through it and on to further stages of healing.
Stage Three Exercises
1. Sit, or lie comfortably on your back. Place one hand on top of the other and lay them just below your neck. Breathe easily and deeply in through your nose and out through your mouth.
2. Move your hands to your heart and continue breathing for another minute or two. Move your hands downwards to different areas of your body. As you reach those areas, place your hands over them and gently breathe into them. Accept this stage you are in and acknowledge your ‘stuckness’ in each area with a gentle nod of your head. You may twist your body or squirm into a position that increases your experience of the blockage, while you hold your hands over the involved area.
Moms are most definitely a powerhouse when it comes to making health-related choices for their families. In fact, statistics show that a staggering 80% of women are the primary household decision makers when it comes to healthcare (including chiropractic). With so much already on their shoulders, we just want to say, “Thanks, moms! You are AMAZING in every sense of the word. Thanks for all you do!!!”
