Having Your Own Health Care Policy

Alternative health

I believe the effectiveness of alternative health care. I practice holistic chiropractic and complimentary and alternative medicine. I practice a version of sports chiropractic that I term ‘sports medicine without the medicine.’

Have you ever wondered why medicine is not considered ‘alternative’ and natural health care isn’t the standard?

In all seriousness, I believe that  you should attempt to stay out of the ‘health care system.’ It’s a ‘sickness care system.’

Nothing about it gives you better health. Drugs given to a healthy person will make them sick. Have you ever seen what they feed people in the hospital?

I mean… are you kidding me?

You have people in there who are sick, diseased, dying, giving birth, infected, injured and you further insult their bodies with a bunch of dead food?

WARNING: Watching the video below may irritate you.

Try this idea… big governmentbig pharma, I dare you:

Take all the money that gets dumped into research to discover the next  ‘wonder drug’ and use it to feed people in hospitals who are sick and diseased a diet of fresh, real food.

Wait… that’s not all.

Do that for a year and while your at it, fund a double-blind randomized placebo controlled study. What you would find (because it will never happen, I’ll tell you what you would find) would most likely be the most amazing statistics ever produced in the history of ‘medicine’- people would get better faster.

I know nurturing health instead of treating sickness with more poisons is an under-appreciated concept but when is ‘conventional wisdom’ going to wake up?

Don’t believe me though. After all, I’m just a measly chiropractor in Denver trying to help people naturally to move better, think better, eat better and function better.

But believe this…

Most people are in disbelief when they hear that our ‘health care system’ is the third leading case of death in this country. Some say that it’s THE leading cause of death.

The total number of iatrogenic [induced inadvertently by a physician or surgeon or by medical treatment or diagnostic procedures] deaths is 783,936. It is evident that the American medical system is the leading cause of death and injury in the United States. In contrast the 2001 heart disease annual death rate was 699,697; the annual cancer death rate, 553,251. 1

No one is going to make you healthy.

The habits you choose, the actions you take and the lifestyle you adhere to will determine how you feel, function and age.

Educate yourself. Be voracious in your pursuit of natural health.

I believe in choosing to be healthy.  Our country makes choosing to be healthy hard in a lot of ways.

But I can ‘do’ hard. And so can you. And for the record, it’s not that hard.

Hospice is hard. Kidney dialysis is hard. Colon cancer is hard. Holding the dying hand of your family member who may be one of the 783,936 deaths is hard.

Managing your nutrition, getting restful sleep, staying appropriately active and responsibly reacting to stress are not that hard.

That’s what you should be spending your time, money and effort on regarding “health care.”

I believe in stewardship of one’s own body.  Having a set of standards by which you make decisions regarding your health.

Quite simply a sense of ‘pride of ownership’ when it comes to the wonderful gift of mind and body that your spirit lives in.

I think each and everyone of us should have our own individual ‘health care policy.’

Seems the government wants to project their morals on us now.

“The preservation of health is a duty. Few seem conscious that there

is such a thing as physical morality.”

Choose wellness.

    We may be moving near there soon, I will be checking them out- I would love to find someone to try the Laser therapy on me, I have heard really good things about that!

      I couldn’t imagine not having the therapeutic laser at our chiropractic clinic. It is applicable and effective for so many things. Particularly things where chiropractic care isn’t the primary treatment of choice like knee arthritis or finger arthritis. Whats really cool is when you can combine treatments like spinal decompression, oxygen therapy, laser therapy along with metabolic balancing. You get a snowball of positive healing effects and they cascade in the patients favor. Injuries effect multiple tissues and different modalities, therefore it stands to reason that if you apply appropriate treatment to those individual tissues, which are, in part, separate ‘mini-injuries’ the injury, as a whole, whole gets better faster…and more complete.

    This sounds like a great chiropractic office, my mother in law lives in the Lakewood Littleton area and I am sending her the link now- she gets a lot of sciatica pain that they could help her with

    The chiropractic clinic I was going to before I relocated had a massage therapist that worked on stress reduction. Just as you mentioned it did wonders for my migraine headaches!

      Not all chiropractic treatments are appropriate for all people and at all times. There are different therapies needed for different conditions and also at different stages of the injury or condition. Massage therapy at a chiropractic just gives the patient and the doctor another modality to use when its needed.

      Over the last 14 years we at our chiropractic and wellness clinic, Evocare Center for Physical Health, have relentlessly added technology and ancillary natural alternative and complimentary treatments. Treatments like oxygen therapy, spinal decompression therapy, sports medicine core training protocols that are really advanced and effective, and laser therapy using the K-laser.

    It looks like your Evocare chiropractic clinic in Lakewood is good at sports chiropractic care. When I ran track in college my back was always getting out of whack – something not too often associated with cross-country running. The professionals here had just the right touch. Definitely seems like you have a handle in Lakewood and Littleton and Denver.

    This seems to be a really great chiropractic clinic. A progressive chiropractic clinic will definitely help lots of patients.

      Thank you, Janice. I started out in a tiny room in Littleton… 15 years ago. Wow, time flies. As the years have gone by we’ve always tried to develop new method and techniques as well as explore new technology to be better prepared to find natural solutions for our patients. Thank you very much!

    I don’t know any chiropractic clinic nearby so it’s good seeing that you have there a progressive chiropractic clinic.
