Physical

 

The physical health of your spine reflects your ability to adapt to stress: physical, chemical & emotional. With alignment you are at your most productive, dynamic and creative level of performance.

SPINAL TORSION (twisting pattern of the spine)

In this aspect of care we are dealing with the traditional philosphy of chiropractic. Which is in order for the body to heal itself and/or adapt to external environmental forces, the free flow of life energy is imperative. Life energy is like the flow of electricity conducted to and from the cells of the body over the nevous system.
The nervous system controls and coordinates every other system in the human body. In order for the body to physically heal and regenerate itself it must be charged with life energy.

Spinal torsion is the most serious encumbrance to the movement of life energy.

Physical-info

Spinal torsion occurs when the body is challenged from a physical, chemical or emotional external force, it impedes the flow of life energy. Chiropractic is the specialised healing art whose sole objective is to correct spinal torsion.

 

CATEGORIES OF SPINAL TORSION

¨ CATEGORY I
Mild spinal dural torsion and will respond well to spinal adjustments.

¨ CATEGORY II
Moderate spinal dural torsion involving cranial and sacral distortion usually accompanied with early disco genic degeneration. Most common phase, may have acute phases of spinal dysfunction, energy goes up and down, body’s ability to adapt to stress is impared.

¨ CATEGORY III
Severe spinal, cranial and sacral dural torsion with discogenic degeneration. The bodies ability to heal is severely compromised. Health maybe in a chronic state of stress, long term treatment strategy is usually required.

chemical-about

Chemical

90% of your immune system is based around your gut. It’s imperative for healing, to have good bowel health. Diet is complex – it needs to be individually tailored to each patient.

When your bowel works well you feel great. The average person has 1 to 3kg of undigested matter stuck to the bowel wall which is putrefying, creating a source of toxicity, a breeding ground for pathogens and parasites. This old material is a source of infection and toxic absorbtion. It inhibits the absorbtion of vital nutrients and water. This greatly affects the body’s ability to heal itself due to the stress and extra burden placed on the immune, nervous and hormonal systems. 90% of all disease and illness start due to improper bowel fnction. The road to health starts with cleansing and detoxifying the body to restore balance, peace and harmony.

Chemical-info

Chemical Status

  • Basic Digestive Dysfunction – This is mainly due to illeoceceal valve The illeocecal valve is the valve between the large intestine and the small intestine. When it isn’t functioning properly the toxins and bad bacteria from the large intestine move up into the small intesting where the toxins are absorbed, with the increase in acidity beneficial bacteria are unable to survive. These good bacteria are important, acting as a defence against microbal and parasitic atack and they aid efficient digestion. Symptoms include indigestion, heart burn, bloating, wind, bad breath.

 

  • Mucoid Lining – Is a build up of the intestinal mucusoften over a long period of time. The bowel is a hollow organ with a convoluted surface which has a surface area half the size of a tennis court. It can harbour vast amounts of toxins in the form of putrefying foods, harmful bacteria and parasites which cause intenstinal toxaemia. This condition produces harmful poisons/toxins which have a profound effect on our health. This has come about from poor diet, over eating, poor elimination, food intolerances, pesticides, food additives, drugs, environmental pollutants and stress. Common symptoms are diahorrhea, constipation, bloating, allergis, skin problems, cravings, depression, frequent infections, gas, fowl smelling stools, exhaustion.

 

  • Impaired Liver Function – The liver has a vital role in regulating our metabolism. It has a blood flow of three pints per minute and is the only organ with two separate supplies of blood. It has many roles like regulating carbohydrate, protein and fat metabolism, storing energy in the form of glycogen. It metabolizes harmful intermediary hormones like estrogen which if not broken downmakes it impossible to lose weight. It also activates thyroid hormone which ultimately controls our ability to burn fat. It’s other main functon is detoxification via its Kupffer cells. These cells clean blood and lymph fluid by ingesting dead cells, cancer cells, yeasts, viruses, bacteria, parasites, denatured proteins and harmful chemicals. If the Kuppfer cells are overworked, they become inefficient and toxic themselves, this has serious consequences. This further stresses our immune, nervous and hormonal systems. Frequently associated symptoms are nausea – especially after fatty meals, irritable bowel syndrome, weight gain, depression, foggy brain, hypersensitivity to chemicals (allergies), headaches, migraines, high blood pressure, fluid retention, hypoglycemia (unstable blood sugar levels), chronic fatigue syndrome, intolerance to alcohol and excessive body heat.

 

  • Endocrine System Imbalance – If the Endocrine system has been compromised, thiis indicates that your body has been under chronic stress. The hormonal system is the last system to be effected by physical, chemical ad emotional stresses. The Endocrine system is a series of glands which secrete hormones into the blood stream that cause physiological changes in our body. When there is an imbalance it has a vast array of physiological and psychological effects. Psychological symptoms such as depression, anxiety, mood swings, irritability, irrationality, apathy, lack of drive, poor concentration, memory problems, eating disorders, general tiredness are common. Physiological symptoms like allergies, an array of digestive disorders, fibromyagia, chronic fatigue syndrome, sin disorders, sleep disorders, weight gain, raised chloresterol and lethargy are common.
emotional-about

Emotional

Stress effects our health. Reflex responses from our past experiences limit our ability to cope with stress. It’s important to break conditioned emotional responses and behavioural patterns that are limiting our decisions and beliefs.

Our bodies store emotions not just the mind. Emotions are physiologically (body) based in minute proteins called Information Substances (IS). These IS are comprised of neuropeptides and hormones which permeate our entire or entire body, including our DNA. (Validated by PERT)

We have reflex patterns of behaviour associated with conditioned responses imprinted into the physiology of our body. Significant events from our past effect how we feel and behave now. So we may feel depression, anxieties, fear, anger, have dysfunctional relationships (family and romantic), low self-esteem, a sense of hopelessness or just an inability to achieve desired outcomes. This is related to what we call Neuro-Emotional Complexes (N.E.C’s).

What happens is we can be conditioned (like Pavlov’s Dog) – sometimes by one event. While conditioning is normal so to is the fading or elimination of a conditioned response, which is called ‘extinction’. Sometimes extinction does not take place and the emotion becomes locked into the body to be repeated over and over again, like repetition compulsion (Freud), which is once we have been traumatized (conditioned) we non-consciously seek to repeat that pattern or trauma in the future.

Neuro-Emotional Technique (N.E.T.) is a cutting edge mind-body technique used to clear N.E.C’s to allow the body to carry on with its normal process. It breaks conditioned emotional responses and behavioural patterns that are limiting your decisions and beliefs, which prevent us from doing, having or changing what we want. The use of N.E.T. throughout the syntax of care will allow you to experience greater personal power, awareness, confidence, self-esteem and understanding.

Spinal torsion occurs when the body is challenged from a physical, chemical or emotional external force, it impedes the flow of life energy. Chiropractic is the specialised healing art whose sole objective is to correct spinal torsion.

Treatment

We believe this is the finest holistic care you can receive.

Physical

The priority is to reduce spinal torsion, the twisting pattern of the spine.

CATEGORIES OF SPINAL TORSION

CATEGORY I
Mild spinal dural torsion and will respond well to spinal adjustments.

CATEGORY II
Moderate spinal dural torsion involving cranial and sacral distortion usually accompanied with early disco genic degeneration.

CATEGORY III
Severe spinal, cranial and sacral dural torsion with discogenic degeneration. The bodies ability to heal is severely compromised.

Treatment:

  • Chiropractic adjustments (manual or low force)
  • Deep soft tissue.
  • Accupunture (optional)
  • N.O.T. (Primitive reflex reset)
  • S.O.T. /A.K.
  • Activator.

Chemical

Andrew is a Clinical Nutritionist and Blood Group Certified with vast clinical experience treating the chemical paradigm.

Even the most complex of conditions can be treated effectively and efficiently by Andrew’s unique approach: step-by-step, simple tasks and protocols to build up a comprehensive treatment regime.

The chemical paradigm is imperative. Faulty bowel function stresses the immune system causing inflammatory responses throughout the body – inflammation of the brain can cause depression. 80% of the body’s serotonin (happy hormone) is produced in the gut. With proper gut health and harmony the body is able to heal, you have vitality and wellbeing.

Treatment:

Diet is very complex and needs to be individually tailored to each patient.

  • Diet fundamentals: Do’s & Don’t’s
  • Identify food intolerance and sensitivities
  • Tailor diet to each patient based on genetics
  • Detox protocols may be required of the gut liner and the gall bladder
  • Each step is experienced and quantifiable to the patient

Emotional

NET Certified & Trained Practitioner with 20 years experience of dealing with the emotional aspect of healing.

There is little doubt that emotional stress affects our wellbeing. Andrew uses Neural Emotional Technique (NET) – a cutting edge mind/body technique. It identifies reflex patterns of behaviour and conditioned behavioural responses. Significant events from the past may effect how we feel now. NET identifies the original event and emotion using Kinesology and helps bring about the normal extinction of the emotion. NET has been successfully used by practitioners world wide for two decades. It’s a safe, effective treatment protocol addressing the emotional aspect of the health paradigm.

Treatment:

  • N.E.T. Organ torsion syndrome.
  • Law of thought (Re: Dr S.Eastwood)
  • N.E.T. Success (Re: Dr S.Walker)

With gross torsion reduced, it’s important to reset the nervous system using modern chiropractic techniques like the primitive reflexes. Neural circuits to obtain lasting integrity of the spine which is crucial for health and wellbeing.
