Five Pillars of Health

Throughout my chiropractic and naturopathic career, I have come to realize over my experiences with patients that the foundations of health are firmly rooted in five aspects of health to live a balanced healthy life. Have a deep passion for helping patients heal their bodies naturally and effectively for a maximum longevity.

Structural – which includes the physical body such as bones, muscles and ligaments

Emotional - how our thoughts and belief programmes and how others’ thoughts impact our bodies’ health

Nutritional - how to get the most nutrients, vitamins and minerals from our food and proper supplementation there

Hydration - proper hydration with healthy, clean water (free of toxins, additives, and harmful chemicals) is essential to the proper functioning of the body and how the cells communicate to one another

Energy/Spirit - this encompasses acupuncture healing the meridians in our bodies, homeopathy, spiritual connection, prayer, and mediation amongst others 

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Most Americans are soooo tired and run down that a new medical term was coined calling this phenomenon “Chronic Fatigue Syndrome “. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says that this debilitatingThe CDC states Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) affects 1 million Americans, or 17% of All Americans. I suspect that this “Syndrome” primarily affects citizens of Westernized nations where relaxation is not part of the national vernacular. (For example, in France, and other UK nations have a 35 hour work week and have built in nap times during their day. The rate of CFS in Germany and France is only .01 %.

Adrenal Gland Exhaustion

Do you often need a cup of coffee to kick start your day? Do you have a lagging cough or a slight cold that just doesn’t go away? If you can’t start the day on your own, or can’t seem to get healthy despite all the rest and medication, chances are you have run down adrenal glands.Many people suffer from stressed-out, tired adrenal glands, a very common problem.The typical symptoms can include fatigue, headaches, pain and aches, inflammatory conditions (problems that end in "-itis, like bronchitis, dermatitis, colitis, etc.), low blood sugar, rashes, swellings, allergies, asthma, and numerous others. In fact, low adrenals often cause, underlie, or aggravate many health problems.Read more about adrenal gland exhaustion and ligament stretch syndrome. 

Are you Drinking Enough Water

You might think that by adding up the cup of coffee you drink in the morning, the big gulp of coke at lunch, and iced tea at dinner, you could claim to drink enough. But since most of us do not drink 8 glasses or more of water per day we are clogging up our bodies with toxins!
Did you know that we need 2 cups of water to help the liver flush out the caffeine from our morning coffee?Most people do not understand the importance of water for general health and vitality. In fact, Dr. Ross Anderson, world renown authority on auto-intoxication and parasitic infection, lists auto-intoxication at the top of the list of reasons why we are diseased and stay diseased. Auto-intoxication is the body re-poisoning itself with its own toxic waste. "Inadequate intake of water and prolonged transit time of fecal material add to the toxic burden."
