Chiropractor Raising Consciousness In Denver, CO With Network …

July 9, 2011

The majority of folks have memories regarding some kind of event in their lives that have brought them joy and pain. Those memories are stored somewhere in the body? the spine and nervous system included. This is especially true if it didn’t feel safe to experience their experience at a particular time. The stored up energy causes the body to vibrate and feel the tension. The brain’s cerebral cortex will disconnect itself from the energy so that it’s not in full awareness of it. This is when you need make the consciousness decision to seek the help of a Denver Network Spinal Analysis chiropractor.

As stress, physical, emotional, mental or chemical, becomes caught inside the body, the spinal cord is stretched out similar to a guitar string that’s been tightened too much. When this happens, the body gets put into the fight or flight mode, which locks in the patterns that twist the posture and spine. When the cord is under stress, every cell’s tone and vibration becomes altered, which affects the communication and energy flow of the nerves and cells.

When the communication of the nerve system and cells drops, there is a failure to distinguish, process and express body sensations, tension patterns and emotions. This limits the adaptive responses and its range. This encourages the mind-body disconnection to make and keep the spinal distortions and vertebral subluxation.

The more a person attempts to deny the parts that have been hurt, the more suffering and discontentment is present. The parts of the body that defends against real or perceived threats are unconscious sensory motor strategies anchored in the nervous system and spine as stuck energy. This blocks the nerve energy and consciousness. Until the energy of stress and trauma is connected, the body can stay in its place of suffering, which includes physical symptoms of illness and pain. How can the nervous system change this jammed energy?

Vibration, position, tone and shape of both the nerves and spine decide the level of both consciousness and awareness with how people see the world. Think of a triangle with labels on three sides: Structure, Perception and Behavior. Around that triangle are the energetic bio-fields that include Emotional, Lower/Upper Mental, Life Force and Spiritual. The bio-fields envelop and shift the body through the Spinal Gateways. Each of the bio-fields has a matching level of consciousness, awareness, tone and vibration. Within that triangle is energy. The body’s nervous system and spine are what connects folks to their behavior, structure and perception.

To get a better picture of how structure, behavior and perception influences consciousness and awareness, do this experiment: Hang the head down low and bring your shoulders forward. How does this make you feel? Keep that position and ask yourself, Is there something wrong with me?.

Think about how that energy feels inside the body? How does it make you feel? It’s likely you feel that you’re in a lower bio-field of vibration and awareness. When a person is locked into this position, it’s because of stress and they might feel frustrated, depressed and even angry. It’s all a limited depth and an assortment of human experience.

Now, shoulders rolled backwards, look to the sky, lift the heart and ask: How am I able to develop into what my soul wants me to be?

This is the time you want to feel the connection and love of Individual Soul and the gratitude of Global Soul bio-fields. When you begin to experience your spine awakening your vibration will rise to higher levels.

The model above is recognized as the Triad of Change. This is known as the fundamental organizing rule of Network Spinal Analysis. With the help of a Denver chiropractor who utilizes Network Spinal Analysis, a person will be able to experience a broad range of resourcefulness in wellness, health, consciousness, life and awareness. By putting a gentle amount of pressure in certain patterns to the Spinal Gateways, which are seen at both ends of the spine, the body’s nervous system becomes powerful. Afterwards, the nervous system will restructure itself to higher levels of both behavior and perception, which will make it have a connection to entrapped energy. As the body releases the energy, it helps direct the body/mind wave energy to go through the Spinal Gateways so that energy is recycled as transformational and healing fuel. As the nervous system moves away from its fight or flight response to its safety response, it opens the way to clear out negative feelings.

As you get acquainted with an expanded spine, you’ll begin to experience the awareness of love, grace and ease of an open heart along with an appreciation of the universal soul consciousness that connects to your higher power and humanity. Talk with a Denver chiropractor Level III certified in Network Spinal Analysis today and see how it can work for you.

Gentle Chronic Pain Relief With A Denver Chiropractic Doctor
by Wells Davis

Scores of folks suffer with spinal pain and the rising number of people suffering with it is alarming. There are some folks who suffer with the debilitating pain every day. Other folks are suffering from spinal pain because of an accident. Whatever the reason, the pain is real, and for people who want chronic pain relief, they want action now?not later! There are many options available to get chronic pain relief with Denver chiropractic care being one of those many options.

People understand that Denver chiropractic care means visiting a chiropractor, a doctor who believes the body can self-heal. Denver chiropractic care patients who seek out chronic pain relief will often undergo a technique called spinal adjustment.

A Denver chiropractic doctor will often make adjustments after it’s been deemed that the spinal pain sufferer has subluxation, a small misalignment in their vertebrae. This subluxation will cause a fair amount of pressure on the spinal nerves.

The primary focus with the network spinal analysis is to provide healing to the spine and its surrounding nerves. The Network Spinal Analysis is often called the Network Chiropractic Care. The holistic technique of providing chronic pain relief is a fairly new innovation in the chiropractic field.

The technique is practiced quite often in the wellness rhythms centers where both the nerve energy’s flow and rhythms are directed to a normal state. The spinal nerves and vertebrae have a close relationship, basically each other needs the other. When there is an extraordinary amount of pressure built up along the vertebrae, the nerves will suffer, causing the sufferer’s health to decline.

Keep in mind that chronic pain relief in this form is not a simple pain killer prescription. Rather, spinal healing with this approach is seen in chiropractic offices worldwide. It’s done through an integration of several methods such as exercise, yoga, meditation and several other building individual emotional power methods.

It’s not that difficult to find a person who needs chronic pain relief and they may be looking at the various self-healing methods. The body demands it be maintained both emotionally and physically to stay healthy. Both the release of blocked energy flow and self-healing are helpful techniques to spinal healing. Chronic pain relief in the form of Denver chiropractic care doctors would be a sufferer’s best spinal healing technique.

How the FDA Turned a $10 Treatment into a $30,000-Per-Pregnancy Pharmaceutical Money-Maker

April 1, 2011

big pharmaWhen a new FDA drug-and-money scandal has doctors, US senators, and even the March of Dimes in an uproar, you know it’s bad. A new Action Alert!

A drug which the FDA approved more than half a century ago—which doctors have been prescribing for their patients with high-risk pregnancies through compounding pharmacies with great success—was designated by the FDA an “orphan drug.” Now KV Pharmaceutical has been given the exclusive right of production and sale (not to mention drug trial tax breaks!). They immediately raised the price from $10 per dose to $1,500—simply because they could.

The drug is a synthetic form of progesterone given as a weekly injection. It has been made cheaply for years and produced in compounding pharmacies. The price hike means that the total cost during a pregnancy could be as much as $30,000.

Doctors say the $30,000 price tag will almost certainly deter low-income women from getting the drug, leading to more premature births. Dr. Roger Snow, deputy medical director for Massachusetts’ Medicaid program, was quoted as saying, “That’s a huge increase for something that can’t be costing them that much to make. For crying out loud, this is about making money!” And Dr. Arnold Cohen, an obstetrician at Albert Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia, observed, “I’ve never seen anything as outrageous as this.”

Besides the grave jeopardy placed on the mothers and their infants, this will create a huge financial burden for the health insurance companies, private citizens, and government programs that have to pay for it. In the long run, because of birth complications, the babies will need to be hospitalized for perhaps months—and, for low-income mothers, all at the expense of taxpayers. On top of that, lung issues at birth can have lifelong repercussions on the individual’s health with an increased propensity toward asthma, bronchitis, and pneumonia, among other early birth issues.

The March of Dimes—a nonprofit organization dedicated to preventing birth defects—received funding from KV Pharmaceutical and supported the company’s New Drug Application. Now the organization has started backtracking in the face of all the public outrage. They just sent a letter to KV “expressing our serious concern about the price of Makena.”

Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) has sent a letter to KV Pharmaceutical asking the company to “immediately reconsider” its pricing. “I am deeply concerned that your company appears to be taking advantage of FDA approval at the expense of women, children and federal and state budgets,” Brown wrote. “By ratcheting up prices, fewer women will be able to afford the drug, increasing rates of preterm birth nationwide. This isn’t in the interest of children, new mothers, or taxpayers.” Sen. Brown, along with Sen. Klobuchar, followed this with a letter to the FTC commission to investigate potential anticompetitive conduct from the increase in price.

Not surprisingly, the backlash over the unconscionable price hike has been significant—so much that KV hired the public relations firm Golin Harris to handle the mess.

Compounding Pharmacies to the Rescue

The FDA originally approved 17-hydroxyprogesterone caproate (17OHPC, or 17P for short) under the trade name Delalutin in 1956 to halt impending miscarriages. It was deemed safe but the manufacturer took it off the market in 2000 because it was eventually shown to be ineffective in stopping miscarriages.

When the drug was no longer available, compounding pharmacies were able to compound 17P’s ingredients and sell the product to patients whose physicians had prescribed it. Pharmacists can legally compound FDA-approved products when a drug is not commercially available (as was the case when the manufacturer pulled it from the market), or when a prescriber determines that the compounded preparation is more clinically appropriate for an individual patient (as when someone is allergic to one particular element in the preparation but another can easily be substituted).

After large controlled trials in the mid-2000s showed that 17P could prevent premature births, the compound was given “orphan drug” status by the FDA. An orphan drug is a pharmaceutical agent that has been developed specifically to treat a relatively rare medical condition, and the designation gives the manufacturer clinical trial tax incentives. It also gives the manufacturer the exclusive right for seven years to manufacture and sell the drug. Of course in this case, premature birth is not a rare condition at all.

As soon as FDA gave the drug (now trademarked as Makena) orphan drug status, its manufacturer, KV Pharmaceutical, sent a cease-and-desist letter to compounding pharmacists, stating that “FDA…views compounded drugs to be ‘new drugs’ within the meaning of 21 U.S.C 312(p) and as such they may not be introduced into interstate commerce without FDA approval.”

The Orphan Drug Act is meant to encourage pharmaceutical companies to develop drugs for diseases that have a small market, and it has resulted in medical breakthroughs that may not have otherwise been achieved due to the economics of drug research and development. But this is a drug which was already developed, already approved, already in use, and has been costing $10 per treatment for many years. To raise the price to $1,500 per injection just because they can is unconscionable.

This is just another attempt by Big Pharma to monopolize substances. You may recall our campaign to keep pharmaceutical companies’ hands off bioidentical estriol and bioavailable B6.

Please take action on this issue! Ask the FDA to allow compounding pharmacies to continue making a compounded version of 17P. Even if KV Pharmaceutical now has exclusive right to sell the original formulation that was developed in 1954, compounding pharmacies should be allowed—since it is their legal right to do so—to make and sell compounded formulations that are similar but more clinically appropriate for an individual patient.

If you are trying to lose weight, look at your liquid calories. Beverages now supply more than 20% of the calories in the average diet according to Denver Chiropractor Dr. Jeffrey Parham. Most liquid calories come from soda or alcoholic beverages. Studies show that people who get calories from beverages tend to subsequently eat more than those who get the same number of calories from solid food.

Brain Structure Changes After Meditation

Brain Structure Changes After Meditation

By Rick Nauert PhD Senior News Editor
Reviewed by John M. Grohol, Psy.D. on January 24, 2011

Brain Structure Changes After Meditation Emerging research suggests participation in a mindfulness meditation program appears to make measurable changes in brain regions associated with memory, sense of self, empathy and stress.

Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) investigators said the changes occurred after a relatively brief intervention of eight weeks; their findings are reported in an upcoming issue of Psychiatry Research: Neuroimaging.

The discovery is the first to document meditation-produced changes over time in the brain’s grey matter.

“Although the practice of meditation is associated with a sense of peacefulness and physical relaxation, practitioners have long claimed that meditation also provides cognitive and psychological benefits that persist throughout the day,” said Sara Lazar, Ph.D., the study’s senior author.

“This study demonstrates that changes in brain structure may underlie some of these reported improvements and that people are not just feeling better because they are spending time relaxing.”

Previous studies from Lazar’s group and others found structural differences between the brains of experienced meditation practitioners and individuals with no history of meditation, observing thickening of the cerebral cortex in areas associated with attention and emotional integration.

But those investigations could not document that those differences were actually produced by meditation.

For the current study, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was used to document the brain structure of 16 study participants two weeks before and after they took part in the 8-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Program at the University of Massachusetts Center for Mindfulness.

In addition to weekly meetings that included practice of mindfulness meditation – which focuses on nonjudgmental awareness of sensations, feelings and state of mind – participants received audio recordings for guided meditation practice and were asked to keep track of how much time they practiced each day.

A set of MRI images were also taken of a control group of non-meditators over a similar time interval.

Meditation group participants reported spending an average of 27 minutes each day practicing mindfulness exercises, and their responses to a mindfulness questionnaire indicated significant improvements compared with pre-participation responses.

The MRI analysis, which focused on areas where meditation-associated differences were seen in earlier studies, found increased grey-matter density in the hippocampus, known to be important for learning and memory, and in structures associated with self-awareness, compassion and introspection.

Participant-reported reductions in stress also were correlated with decreased grey-matter density in the amygdala, which is known to play an important role in anxiety and stress.

Although no change was seen in a self-awareness-associated structure called the insula, which had been identified in earlier studies, the authors suggest that longer-term meditation practice might be needed to produce changes in that area.

None of these changes were seen in the control group, indicating that they had not resulted merely from the passage of time.

“It is fascinating to see the brain’s plasticity and that, by practicing meditation, we can play an active role in changing the brain and can increase our well-being and quality of life,” said Britta Hölzel, Ph.D., first author of the paper and a research fellow at MGH and Giessen University in Germany.

“Other studies in different patient populations have shown that meditation can make significant improvements in a variety of symptoms, and we are now investigating the underlying mechanisms in the brain that facilitate this change.”

Amishi Jha, Ph.D., a University of Miami neuroscientist who investigates mindfulness training’s effects on individuals in high-stress situations, said, “These results shed light on the mechanisms of action of mindfulness-based training.”

According to Jha, who was not involved in the current study, “They demonstrate that the first-person experience of stress can not only be reduced with an eight-week mindfulness training program but that this experiential change corresponds with structural changes in the amygdala, a finding that opens doors to many possibilities for further research on MBSR’s potential to protect against stress-related disorders, such as post-traumatic stress disorder.”

I’d like to see a similar study done with mindfulness mediation and Network Spinal Analysis.

Network Spinal Analysis helps the brain and nervous system move from fight or flight to safety. As this happens processing moves from the Primitive Brain to the Prefrontal Cortex. The prefrontal cortex has been implicated in planning complex cognitive behaviors, personality expression, decision making and moderating correct social behavior.

Imagine the social, health and wellness implications of Mindfulness Meditation combined with Network Spinal Analysis. Could this combination be even more effective in treating stress-related disorders, such as post-traumatic stress disorder?

Examining Exercise For Treatment Of Adolescent Depression

January 14, 2011

stress relief denver chiropractic Examining Exercise For Treatment Of Adolescent Depression

By Dr. Andrea Dunn

Adolescent depression has become a major public health problem with one in 33 children having clinical depression (Mental Health America).  According to the National Research Council and Institute of Medicine, the age at first symptom is around 11.  However, the first diagnosis of depression is typically not until the age of 15.  Depression left untreated is linked to school failure, impaired social functioning, teen pregnancy, and suicide.

This means that it is important for parents to pay attention to changes in their children’s behavior and to listen to what they are saying, especially since it has been shown that counseling and resilience training have been found to prevent the onset of depression disorders.  By catching the signs of depression early, parents can advocate for preventative measures, which will enhance their child’s coping skills and resilience.  It may also prevent the development of poor health outcomes and functional impairments, such as lower grades.

Adolescents may not show these signs of depression in the same way as adults and each child is different.  Some adolescents may show signs of hopelessness, have a lack of interest in the things around them such as friends or family, or are unable to concentrate.  Other adolescents may express their symptoms through their irritability and agitation.  These expressions of irritability and agitation can manifest themselves in the form of being fidgety, restless, or moving around more or less than normal.  Or a child’s depression can be expressed through isolating him or herself from others and spending hours watching TV, playing video games, or being on the Internet.  While most adolescents display some of these behaviors, symptoms of depression are usually longer lasting.

Pediatricians, primary care providers, and trained providers at a local community Mental Health Center http://www.cdhs.state.co.us/dmh/directories_cmhc.htm can guide individuals through the treatment process.  Two of the most studied forms of treatment are medication (SSRIs) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).  While both are common treatment options and have the most scientific evidence to support their effectiveness, neither is guaranteed.  It is important to remember that treatment is a process of trial and error.  If one option does not work, do not give up.  Instead, pursue another option until the best match is found for your child.

Another option that is being studied more is exercise.  Exercise may help to reduce depressive symptoms and may be a useful coping strategy for adolescents.  Studies have been conducted with adults and found a reduction in depressive symptoms in participants who were receiving the exercise treatment.

If you are interested in learning more about an adolescent depression study in Denver examining the role of exercise to treat depression, please contact the Project Coordinator at (303) 565-4321 x3673 or visit www.DOSEforTeens.org The study is being funded by a grant from the National Institute of Mental Health.

Comment by Dr. Jeffrey Parham: This is an interesting study about examining the role of exercise to treat depression. I like the idea of exercise as an alternative to medication. I would like to see the study expanded at some point to include dietary changes as well as Network Spinal Analysis to reduce Nervous System tone and to improve Nerve energy flow for improved health and wellness. The effects of both diet and improved nerve system balance in the treatment of depression warrant more investigation.
