Biological Terrain Assessmenttm
The key to health is found within the building blocks of life: the elements, amino acids, enzymes, molecules, and atoms. When the chemistry is balanced, your body will remain strong and healthy, while nourishing a vibrant immune system.
The BTA S-2000tm measures the entire biochemical environment of your body. It scientifically monitors the pH (acid-alkaline ratio), the oxidation-reduction potential (degree of oxidative stress), and the resistivity (relative concentration of minerals) of the blood, urine, and saliva.
This information is vital in assessing your internal environment and individual biochemical status while evaluating the overall effectiveness of your therapy. The BTA S-2000tm assists in uncovering the underlying cause(s) of an imbalance.
If your body’s pH is too acidic or too alkaline, it can interfere with enzymatic activity, digestion, and the absorption of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients. There may also be indicators of environmental or industrial contaminants which can damage your body’s delicate chemistry.
The oxidative-stress values indicate the effects of stress, poor air quality, and food lacking in nutritional value, along with the lack of aerobic exercise. If elevated for long periods of time, the body is more susceptible to illness, disease, degeneration, and premature aging.
Resistivity indicates the gross mineral concentrations of what the body is holding in, and what it is excreting. If minerals are deficient, enzymatic reactions cannot occur; if they are too high, then congestion and stagnation of vital dynamic fluids may occur.
By monitoring these three parameters, we can obtain an in-depth, comprehensive assessment of your body terrain. While this assessment does not diagnose any specific pathology or disease state, it aids tremendously in evaluating the overall function of the Biological Terrain. With the proper recommendations, you can regain and maintain good health.
Nutri-Energetics Systemstm Scanning
Based on the concept of the human body-field, NES therapy offers a revolutionary, new approach to evaluating and promoting wellness.
Through the use of Infoceuticals, information-encoded preparations, your body’s natural healing and detoxification processes are activated, which can assist in restoring your well-being and vitality.
The aim of NES therapy is to return integrity to the human body-field and support the body’s inherent natural ability to heal itself at a chemical, physical, mental, emotional, and informational level.
While NES therapy can be used to find relief from acute and chronic symptoms, it is also a powerful preventative measure, correcting imbalances as they arise, allowing you to stay healthy over the long term.
sEMG and Thermal Scanning
Your nervous system is so vital that key parts are protected by bone. The skull protects your brain. Your spinal cord, the information “superhighway” of your nervous system, is covered by the 24 moving bones of your spine.
Like a circuit breaker, physical, emotional or chemical stresses can cause spinal bones to lose their normal motion or position, upsetting nearby nerves. These nervous system disturbances are called vertebral subluxations.
Like the early stages of tooth decay, heart disease or cancer, vertebral subluxations can adversely affect your health. Even if you don’t have obvious symptoms.
One way to locate vertebral Subluxation patterns is by measuring muscle tone. Vertebral subluxations cause the muscles supporting the spine to exhibit unusual electrical activity. Our equipment locates these areas by detecting changes as small as a millionth of a volt!
The same part of your nervous system that controls your heart, lungs, stomach, and other organs, also regulates your skin. By measuring skin temperatures along your spine, we can find nervous system disturbances that may be affecting other vital organs.
The Insight 7000tm helps us to detect these patterns of vertebral subluxations.
Repair Nutrition Analysis
Repair Nutrition Analysis tests the acupuncture points used by the Chinese for thousands of years. These test points are much like circuit breakers in a fuse box. When there is a malfunction, there is an interruption in the circuit. This gives us an insight into the functioning and malfunctioning of the body’s organ systems.
Utilizing the information gained from approximately 75 key points representing the various organs and glands, a nutritional repair program can be designed to supplement and correct the body’s deficiencies, imbalances, and weaknesses.
The refined food that most people eat in this country has hundreds of vital phyto-nutrients removed from it. Six of these are replaced with artificial chemicals. This is then called enriched or fortified.
If someone steals $100 from you, and then gives you back 6 counterfeit dollar bills, are you feeling enriched? Fortified? Mugged?
We will outline a specific nutritional repair plan for correction using whole nutrients found in nature, not some synthetic man-made chemical imitations. These specific nutrients are designed to supply the body with what it is missing or not assimilating from your diet. We also cover specific changes in your diet and eating habits to help you to achieve the best possible results.
X-rays, MRI, CT scans
We can take x-rays in our office if they are indicated by your exam results. This allows us to see the results immediately. We use beam collimation, high speed intensifying screens, and high speed film in order to minimize your exposure. If an MRI or CT scan is needed, we have local arrangements to have these done on short notice.
Chiropractic works because you are a self-healing, self-regulating organism controlled by your nervous system. Millions of instructions flow from your brain, down the spinal cord, and out to every organ and tissue. Signals sent back to the brain confirm if your body is working properly.
Improper motion or position of the moving bones of the spine called a "subluxation" can interfere with this vital exchange by irritating nerves and compromising the function of affected organs and tissues. Specific spinal adjustments can help improve mind/body communications. Health often returns with improved nervous system control of the body.
We accomplish this by using the Thrust-Aire 2001 which delivers the most accurate adjustments with tiny taps from its small, cushioned tip. We use this revolutionary adjusting tool to gently correct spinal abnormalities and remove pressure from pinched nerves. We are among a very small group of Chiropractors in the United States to offer the use of the Thrust-Aire. Because it is so precise and quick, NASA purchased 6 Thrust-Aires to apply perfect bends along the circumference of its satellites.
Active Therapeutic Movement Training
Active Therapeutic Movement training is a new approach to treating musculoskeletal disorders. While a previously injured area is stabilized, the patient moves through a series of functional movements to retrain the nervous system and muscles to work together effectively.
With training, muscles that had been turned off from a previous injury are trained to function again. Areas of the musculoskeletal system that have become decompensated begin to function normally again. There is usually an immediate and significant reduction in pain and increase in ranges of motion after this therapy.
During spinal decompression therapy, a negative pressure is created within the disc. By cycling through distraction and relaxation phases and by proper positioning, a spinal disc can be placed under negative pressure, causing a vacuum effect in it. Because of this negative pressure, disc material that has protruded or herniated can be pulled back into the disc, thus permitting healing to occur.
Spinal decompression therapy is a non-surgical, traction based outcome for the relief of back and leg pain along with neck and arm pain. It has a high success rate for pain associated with herniated or bulging discs, even after failed back or neck surgeries.
Cold Laser Up-Regulation
The use of cold lasers has been a major break-through in accelerating the healing process. By imposing specific frequencies on top of the 635 nm wavelength of the red laser, “healing messages” can be sent to the nervous system and various organs of the body.
Cold lasers can be used to reduce swelling on the cellular level, reduce muscle spasms and pain, upregulate muscles that have been chronically weak, increase the production of healing proteins by the mitochondria, rebalance acupuncture meridians, rebalance chakra energies, and reduce interference in nerve communication.
In addition, the 405 nm wavelength blue laser has been found to be very stimulating to the autonomic nervous system. It has become extremely useful in locating underlying issues that complicate many symptom patterns.
Vibrapercussor and Trigger Point Therapy
The Vibrapercussor is very effective in relieving muscle fatigue and spasticity. However it is particularly useful for painlessly mobilizing scar tissue, breaking up adhesions, and remodeling myofascial restrictions. It can also be used to reduce lymphatic congestion and reduce the symptoms of myalgia.
The Arthro-Stim is a recent breakthrough in relieving trigger points quickly, with very little discomfort.
Allergies and Sensitivities cause a large load on the immune system. These can mimic a wide range of diseases and disorders. One of the most commonly seen results of sensitivities is leaky gut syndrome, an excessive permeability of the intestinal tract.
Autonomic system reflex testing can identify substances from foods, chemicals, heavy metals, and allergens that are stressing your body.
By stimulating specific acupuncture points electrically or with a cold laser, your body can be reprogrammed to no longer be abnormally sensitive to these substances.
Scientists have shown that healthy body cells have a charge of 70 millivolts or more on their cell walls. As the cell deteriorates from damage or toxins, it loses its charge. With the aging process, we lose our charge. As we lose the ability for our cells to maintain a full charge, we are no longer able to maintain ideal or optimal health.
When the charge gets below 50 millivolts, there is often pain involved. It has been shown that cancer, tumors, cysts, and scar tissue have charges of 15 millivolts or lower.
Dr. Panos Pappas has done extensive research using an outside generating source of pulsed-electro-magnetic fields to charge the ions in the cells. These ions interact with the cell’s mitochondria, stimulating them to produce more ATP—the energy for the cell. This in turn causes the cell to charge up, becoming strong and healthy as it returns to homeostasis.
The EB305 uses direct current to create an ionic energy field in the foot bath, similar to the energy produced by the human body. This energy is sub-threshold, meaning that you generally will not feel it during the treatment. By altering the electron and proton load in the water, an electromagnetically altered water environment is created. This energy flow increases the energetics of the body, namely its “Life-Energy”.
This increase in energy allows the cells to work and detoxify at a higher rate. As the cells start to function normally again, they start to dump toxins and reestablish proper pH. This in turn enhances the cells’ ability to withstand physical and chemical stressors.
Healthy individuals report feeling lighter, more energetic, and having a greater feeling of well-being. Some patients with pain, edema, gout, headaches, and swollen joints have reported immediate relief. Other patients with arthritis, allergies, lymph edema, neuralgia, and other symptoms have experienced relief and benefits with multiple treatments.
