Welcome to “On Purpose” March 2013

Latch on with Chiropractic:

Latch on with Chiropractic An 8-week-old female was unable to suck properly and had difficulty nursing. She was found to have hip dysplasia and multiple subluxations. The infant received spinal and cranial adjustments and after the 3rd adjustment the patient latched on and fed for 20 minutes without any difficulty and continued to breastfeed normally thereafter. Slak L, Wilson KA: Resolution of Breastfeeding Difficulty Following Subluxation Based Chiropractic Care. J. Pediatric, Maternal & Family Health - January 17, 2013.

What Comes Naturally:

What Comes Naturally It is the innate ability of full-term newborns to initiate breastfeeding at the moment of birth. Failure to do so demonstrates a possible impairment in neurological maturity or a mild to severe neurological musculoskeletal concern. Slak L, Wilson KA: Resolution of Breastfeeding Difficulty Following Subluxation Based Chiropractic Care. J. Pediatric, Maternal & Family Health - January 17, 2013.

Benefits of the Breast:

Benefits of the Breast Infants who are breast fed for at least 3-6 months are 50% less likely to experience acute otitis media (middle ear infection). They are 40% less likely to have asthma, even with a familial history, and those exclusively breastfed for at least 4 months are 3 times less likely to suffer severe respiratory tract infections. Slak L, Wilson KA: Resolution of Breastfeeding Difficulty Following Subluxation Based Chiropractic Care. J. Pediatric, Maternal & Family Health - January 17, 2013.

Muscular Dystrophy and Chiropractic:

Muscular Dystrophy and Chiropractic A 76 year old woman with Muscular Dystrophy, headache and vertigo presented to a chiropractic office. The patient experienced a complete absence of all neurological symptoms after 4 months of chiropractic care aimed at removing subluxations. Fedorchuk C, Frisch C: Improved Health Outcomes in a Patient with Muscular Dystrophy and Hypertension Following Subluxation Based Chiropractic Care. A. Vertebral Subluxation Res. January 31, 2013.

Relax:

Relax A 25-year-old woman with medically diagnosed hypertension was experiencing two migraines a week. After chiropractic care her blood pressure went from 134/98 to 114/80. Whedon E: Upper Cervical Specific Chiropractic Management of a Patient with Hypertension: A Case Report and Selective Review of the Literature. J. Upper Cervical Chiropractic Research – January 20, 2013.

Migraines:

Migraines A 16-year-old female who experienced migraines 1-2 times a week since kindergarten presented to a chiropractor. Chiropractic care resulted in stopping of medications and had migraines occurring only 2-4 times a month with mild intensity.

Upper Cervical Chiropractic Research – January 24, 2013.

Lifestyle Matters:

Lifestyle Matters We are not slaves to DNA; our environment controls the activity of our genes. Kent C: Legacy and Lifestyle: Epigenetics and the Potential for Chiropractic. Dynamic Chiropractic – January 1, 2013, Vol. 31, Issue 01.

Take Control:

Take Control Our interpretation of the environment determines how our genes express themselves, and we can direct our interpretation of life’s events. Kent C: Legacy and Lifestyle: Epigenetics and the Potential for Chiropractic. Dynamic Chiropractic – January 1, 2013, Vol. 31, Issue 01.

Good Stress:

Good Stress Stress may stimulate genetic adaptation. Physical activity positively influences genes and improves health. Kent C: Legacy and Lifestyle: Epigenetics and the Potential for Chiropractic. Dynamic Chiropractic – January 1, 2013, Vol. 31, Issue 01

Bad Stress:

Bad Stress Lifestyle factors such as diet, obesity, environmental pollutants and psychological stress may modify gene patterns. Kent C: Legacy and Lifestyle: Epigenetics and the Potential for Chiropractic. Dynamic Chiropractic – January 1, 2013, Vol. 31, Issue 01.

Make That Change:

Make That Change Improved diet, meditation and other non-medical interventions can actually turn off the disease promoting process in men with prostate cancer. Kent C: Legacy and Lifestyle: Epigenetics and the Potential for Chiropractic. Dynamic Chiropractic – January 1, 2013, Vol. 31, Issue 01.

Lifestyle Changes:

Lifestyle Changes People who followed a lifestyle course which included improved nutrition, stress management techniques, walking and psychosocial support actually changed the expression of over 500 genes in men with early stage prostate cancer. Kent C: Legacy and Lifestyle: Epigenetics and the Potential for Chiropractic. Dynamic Chiropractic – January 1, 2013, Vol. 31, Issue 01.

Subluxation Bad:

Subluxation Bad Subluxation distorts our perception of the environment and compromises our ability to respond to it. Kent C: Legacy and Lifestyle: Epigenetics and the Potential for Chiropractic. Dynamic Chiropractic – January 1, 2013, Vol. 31, Issue 01.

Chiropractic Good:

Chiropractic Good Following adjustments, chiropractic patients frequently report a heightened state of perceptional awareness and well-being. Kent C: Legacy and Lifestyle: Epigenetics and the Potential for Chiropractic. Dynamic Chiropractic – January 1, 2013, Vol. 31, Issue 01.

Fighting 40’s:

Fighting 40’s Soaring obesity and autism rates could be due to our grandparents’ exposure to the chemical revolution of the 40’s including the introduction of plastics, fertilizers, detergents and pesticides. *The ‘switches’ on your genes. The Week. January 25, 2013.

Live Well:

Live Well Lifestyle choices play a major role in cancer. *The ‘switches’ on your genes. The Week. January 25, 2013. Cancers are caused by a series of mutations. Each mutation alters the behavior of the cell somewhat.

Bully, Bully :

Bully, Bully The effects of early life adversity can affect DNA, which in turn can negatively affect social behavior later in life. Weidmann B: The Making of a Bully. The Scientist. 1/25/13.

Mind Matter:

Mind Matter As the foundation for your mind is made, 100 billion cells are formed and are appropriately connected in the brain. Epigenetic processes orchestrate neuronal migration. MedicalXpress.com. 1/11/13 in Neuroscience.

Obesity Attack:

Obesity Attack Obesity activates a complex immune response which causes inflammation of adipose tissue, the liver, the pancreas and the hypothalamus. Science. January 11, 2013. Sassone-Corsi P: When Metabolism and Epigenetics Converge. P.148-150. Ferrante AW Jr: Improving Metabolism by Throwing Out All the JNK. P. 147-148. U.S. President William H. Taft (1908)

Acute Inflammation:

Acute Inflammation Acute inflammation is the immune system working to clear the infection and guide the repair of damaged tissue. Science. January 11, 2013.

Why Drugs?:

Why Drugs? Factors promoting heavy use of pharmaceuticals include lower diagnostic and treatment thresholds, clinician auditing and reward systems, and the prescribing cascade. The prescribing cascade is where more medications are prescribed to control the effects of already prescribed medications.

Annals of Family Medicine 2012;10(5):452.

Prescription Increase:
