Do You Feel More Tense? Why?

Do you believe that your existence is dependent on connection to your Source?  If so, would you agree that the better your connection to Source is, the less tense your life will be? Over the years in my work as a Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.), I have witnessed a trend in people to take responsibility for their quality of connection to their Source rather than blame their unhappiness on the tensions in their lives. In other words; when your connection is solid; you stop playing the blame game.  “The better connected we get the less we must force our conscious attention in a direction and instead allow Consciousness to flow”.

In my Chiropractic Healing Centre there is a growing awareness that following adjustment,  the connection to the increase of the flow of Life  is tangible. In my clinical experience, when people are adjusted there is a transformation in that moment from alive to more alive. I cannot imagine a more appropriate reason for visiting a health care professional. I am proud to know that this outcome is the actual purpose of every adjustment here at The Chiropractic Healing Centre in Georgina Ontario Canada a short distance north of Port Perry the birthplace of Chiropractic’s founder; Dr. Daniel David Palmer. The early vision of a chiropractic as a correction of spinal interference to the nervous system has been elevated by modern science to a deeper understanding in how important the spine is to the function even of the brain itself.

Further to these thoughts, I must state my excitement and anticipation to witness how these scientific advances are implemented by the few chiropractic colleges which have strayed into the territory of physiotherapy and medicine rather than the proud history of the unique and natural chiropractic adjustment.  Each specific spinal adjustment serves to increase connection to Source by enhancing spinal function both bio-mechanically and vitally.  “The better connected we get; the less we must force our conscious attention in a direction and instead allow Consciousness to flow. ” This in my opinion is the epitome of health care during a time when the tensions of modernity are amplifying mental health challenges.

The Heart Of Courage

Happy Valentines week! I’m sure you know the word heart in french is “cour “.  As the word courage symbolizes, it is our heart that is the source of our bravery as we embrace the opportunity of living this life.  How can we make our heart stronger? We do this by fully being ourselves.

What is the secret to being ourself? We must develop the ability to ‘accept what is’. This means we must accept responsibility for everything that has happened, is happening and yes will happen tomorrow as the result of who we are being today.  This is the secret to being who we truly are.  Knowing we are responsible for everything in our life.

The Chiropractic Advantage For ALL Who Suffer From Back Pain

It doesn’t matter if you have neck pain, a stitch in your shoulder blade or daily low back ache. Chiropractic gives you a scientifically valid advantage over most symptoms including back pains.  In fact, chiropractic is 123 years ahead of the medical profession in the field of health care.  For 123 years chiropractic’s unique approach to health has focused on the body’s ability to function rather than merely masking inconvenient symptoms with dangerous and toxic drug therapies.

OK so what makes chiropractic so unique and gives its users such an advantage?  And why do I place the chiropractic profession 123 years ahead of the medical profession in the field of health care?

Here is the chiropractic 1-2-3 response to the above question.

  1. Because chiropractors are trained to practice chiropractic and not medicine! Do you know the difference between being medicated and the having a chiropractic adjustment?  Here it is. Drugs put you to sleep while specific, safe chiropractic adjustments wake you up. Did you get that?  Health care has become big business. To protect its market share; the strategy of the medical organizations has always been to misrepresent and criticize its competitors to discourage their patients from using them.  The truth is however, that chiropractic has never been in competition with medicine. They are two very different types of profession. How so? Medicine is quite simply the ‘treatment of symptoms’ using primarily drug therapy.  Don’t get me wrong.  I’m not criticizing medicine.  The first fact of the chiropractic advantage is that chiropractic has its own brain-based philosophy and a proven leading edge scientific foundation.
  2. The second fact is that chiropractic is a ‘non-therapeutic’ healing art. Chiropractic is NOT yet another therapy to treat symptoms of malfunction. This very important to understand.
  3. To change your thinking regarding your chiropractic adjustment I suggest you see it this way.  Are having a drink of pristine spring water, taking a deep breath of fresh clean air and eating real food all forms of therapy? Of course not! And neither is having your spine checked for neurological stress and the resulting disconnection between between your brain and the body it controls.

To be clear, chiropractic is 123 years ahead of medicine in the field of health care because the medical profession is not in the field of health care. Let me explain further.  The term “health care” primarily because of the massive advertising campaign; has become associated with the medical concept of the “treatment” of symptoms. Health care or the common sense of self care and personal hygiene is not the treatments of symptoms.  Self care and health care is the creation of a state of health.  Symptoms are evidence of decreased health as function is being lost. Symptoms are like when your gas gauge reads E FOR EMPTY.  Health care is obviously the art of reverse engineering dis-ease back into ease.  Health care is living consciously to increase function by restoring health potential.

If you sense that you desire to know more about the chiropractic advantage we are happy to arrange for a health consultation which will include you learning your CORE SCORE number between 1 and 100.  Simple call 905-476-6475 to arrange your day and time. Thanks for reading my blog

What If A Healthy Body Was Enough To Restore All Its Functions?

What If?

By Dr. Bob Pike, chiropracTOR

What if every specific chiropractic spinal adjustment to correct subluxation changed life expression in each patient? What if an adjustment to restore spinal nerve communication, movement and remove misalignment was enough? What if normal control from the brain to the body was enough to produce amazing resources? What if bringing cells to 100% function in the human body by proper living choices was enough? What if for example correcting common spinal malfunctions improved the whole body’s function? What if eating well and breathing deeply with a happy heart did the same?

What if the brain with its 10 trillion cells was in full communication with the 70 trillion cell in a human body? What if this lasted for say one whole day without any interference or distortion?  Would this simple feat truly be enough to allow operation of all of your and your child’s body’s myriad functions.  Wouldn’t this state also include full adaptation to the environment by your body’s natural immune system?  This natural immunity has been flawlessly acquired over hundreds of centuries of training and unadulterated use in all conditions.  This complete natural protection is not experimental.  Nature’s full inherent immune capacities are such that no artificial, quasi-scientific chemical experimentation would ever be considered much less injected into human infants.  To think this would ever be mandated by schools at measurable risk to each child in their charge would be deemed preposterous. What if true herd immunity had been achieved over the first 12,000 years of human existence? Who would ever want to mess with the only completely natural system of immunity for our children? Isn’t it a fact our natural immunity has been forged over centuries and centuries of living adaptation experimentation this very planet?  What if 100% function and HEALTH were the same? WHAT IF?

What Is Sensory Processing Disorder In Children?

The language of health is changing quickly. Why? Because the notion of the state of HEALTH is under attack. I had a practice member in Toronto in the late 80s  who wrote a screenplay entitled “Where The Spirit Lives“.  You may remember that the First Nations were under attack by our government in days past.  What was the first agenda of those religious schools which abducted first nations  children from their families… from their homes? The first tactic was to prevent them from speaking their native language. Can you imagine what that felt like to these young people?  Why did this happen you rightly ask? My contention as a primary health care provider in this brief article is that the same tactic is being used today in modern day health care.  Before we can understand this new war; we must explore the modern methods of language invention and its purpose. For example the term autism, ADD and ADHD is now being called  S.P.D. or sensory processing disorder. Listen to this\

We learned in school that we have five senses; but we have at least two more that must work for the brain to be fully connected to the sensory information from the body. These are proprioception and the vestibular system of the inner ear.  The way to think about these important sensory systems is this. Your body has passive, active and interactive or control systems. Examples of each are bone, muscle and the central nervous systems.  What is at both ends of a bone. Joints which are filled with different kinds of neuro-sensors that give the brain detailed information of where the body is in space so we don’t bump into things. These mechano and pressure sensors in the joints are essential for our brains to guide body safely using its muscles.

When the chiropracTOR does a spinal adjustment the outcome is that the brain instantly receives increased input from the massively complex of spinal system sensors. When the brain is properly connected to these sensors, it is more able to properly adapt in daily living. This is the role the chiropracTIC profession plays in the restoration of the brain to body communications.  Back pain relief represents under 1 percent of the value of chiropractic adjustment.  In the above interview the reporter stated that kids are either over or under sensitive neurologically. The role of the ‘occupational therapist’ is therefore to stimulate or inhibit these children in the treatment of their P.S.D. It is very important to understand that the body by design has its own internal intelligence or innate guidance system. This is the distinction which chiropractic brings to the table in the care of these children. The chiropractor doesn’t have to “treat” the condition. The chiropractor is trained to give the body a specific spinal adjustment. This changes the function of the nervous system in each child allowing their inherent guidance to express itself more fully bringing resolution of these increasingly common disorders in today’s radically medicalized world.

At Pike Chiropractic Healing Centre  (www.pikechiropractic. com) we use modern neuro-spinal measurements done by state of the art technologies including Heart Rate Variability (H.R.V.)  The majority of people are living in the state of stress induced fight or flight response to daily challenges. We are not designed to have these high stress states bombarding our brains constantly.

The result of this neurological overwhelm is the state described above of Sensory Processing Disorder.  Once the spinal communication system is properly adjusted by a fully trained chiropractor; the sensory disorder resolves into neurological order. Thus the state of dis-ease improves back into EASE.  When you see your child experience this shift you will understand the profound difference between the ‘treatment’ of S.P.D. and the actual correction of its cause within the child’s disturbed neurological system.

Three Ways To Beat Stress And Live Clear and Connected

 E-Health News

I attended the second meeting last week of the Innate Chiropractic Society.  What has this to do with you and your most valuable possession –your health? Everything. Most of us don’t ever think about how amazing our body is.

In this BLOG I am going to teach you three ways to increase your body’s ability to adapt to the stress of LIFE. Remember, your body doesn’t judge whether an stress is good or bad; its just a stress and it reacts the same to both eustress and distress. The exception to this is possible or actual tissue damage which bombards the brain with toxic sensory information.

But first some background facts for you to ponder.  Your body has three different systems which interact:


Each of the three stress freedom techniques I am going to comment on are connected to these systems when you do them.

Think about how you move. You decide to go over there and the ACTIVE muscles pull on the PASSIVE bones. What is at both ends of a bone? Joints. What is in these joints? CONTROL SENSORS.  What are these for? Well your body’s CONTROL system is the brain and its nerve communication system. These sensors send detailed information about where your body is to the CONTROL.  Do you know that there are sensors for everything. There are pressure, mechanical, toxic, temperature and even tissue damage sensors. Information from these is prioritized and the brain get this sensory input almost instantly before everything else. This information actually travels through the learning centres on its way to the frontal cortex.

Ok; I don’t want to bore you  Obviously most of the movement sensors are in the spinal column. Can you see more clearly why the chiropractic adjustment to keep your spinal system clear and connected is important to your overall health?

Here are those three ways to beat stress:

  1. PASSIVE: The principle for healthy bones is to use them. Wolfe’s Law states that as a bone is used it actually becomes more dense and so stronger. Of course, the opposite is equally true. So take walks, swim and be active.
  2. ACTIVE: The principle with having healthy joints is based on use. This involves time and repetition. Yoga, T’ai Chi and Chi Gong are all ancient systems of movement which must be repeated once they are learned. This is why working out is a lifestyle and not a one and done thing. It also helps to have a teacher and someone to do the activity with us for accountability. Otherwise it is too easy for our lazy bones ego to stay in bed.
  3. CONTROL: The control system is a little tricky to think about. Our brain is the organ inside the skull which receives and sends messages and energy from and to the body’s cells and organs. How can we keep out brain at its best? The principle here is neuroplasticity. What is this? The brain is always learning from its experiences or what we use it for. As a chiropractor I can tell you that the healthier your spine is; the healthier your brain is.  And the more functional our brain the better EVERYTHING else works.  The other aspect of this CONTROL level we call the mind. I will simply say that our mindset controls our life journey. The best state for your mind is HAPPY.

I trust you enjoyed October’s issue of E-Health News and that it will change your life for the better.  Have a wonderful day and rest of October.

Yours for Healing at the speed of LIFE,

Dr. Bob PIke

Brain Stress Due to Spinal Misalignment Increases Inflammation And Aging

  Brain Stress Increases Inflammation And Aging.

Why is it that ‘age-ing’ is defined in the dictionary and ‘youth-ing’ isn’t?

AGING: acquiring desirable qualities by being left undisturbed for some time {like wine and cheese.}
                   growing old and
              :the organic process of growing older and showing the effects of increasing age
The obvious question to me is why isn’t the opposite of aging defined in our dictionaries?
My theory is that ‘they’ don’t want you to know that YOUTHING IS POSSIBLE. Chiropractic is founded
on the principle that your body is constantly replacing and healing its tissues. I wonder why we can’t live forever as this self-healing is always happening? Could it be something we have forgotten? Most of my practice members know that they are younger after each spinal adjustment. You can watch their video testimonials here.
Yesterday my monthly E-Health NEWS email blast went out. to my list. It was entitled
The 3 Steps To Health Freedom
1. We can choose to create a mindset that works in present time.
2  We can take action only in the present moment.
3. Our true identity is alive only in the present.
I use each of these powerful insights each time I adjust the spine and nervous system in our adjustment suite.
1. My mindset is in gratitude for the privilege.
2. All chiropractic adjustments are in done P.T.C.
3. Obviously the present moment is sacred.
Enjoy your weekend.
I will be taking the first week of September off
Thank you for reading this blog. Please become a Facebook fan of Pike Chiropractic Healing Centre if you feel resonance with my writing.
Yours for Health,

What Is Healing? Do We Do it Or Do We Allow It?

What is healing? Is healing something that we need to do or is healing a natural property of all living things? Katherine says that its both. “For change to happen we usually have to do something” and we also have to understand what it is to allow.  The above link is relevant to this blog post.  Annie Brandt’s story is timely in my opinion. What an interesting title. “The Healing Platform” ‘Build Your Own Cure’.

I haven’t read it yet but here are some of my initial thoughts based on the Mercola interview and the accompanying article.  Remember that my profession is chiropractic. Know that everything I experience in my life is interpreted through my chiropractic perspective. So lets start with this title. My first comment is that there is evidence in this title of two completely antithethic philosophies…ie healing and curing. Do you see the contrast between these?

How do we get our heads around this? Again, healing is a natural regenerative process that is happening constantly in any living organism. Curing is something we must do. Healing is an innate process we may allow. Curing is a combination of medical therapies used with the intent, in this instance, to restore a person’s constitution to the state of its innate immune potential using a variety of lifestyle choices.

The totally confusing thing about this is in the words on the front cover of this breakthrough book.

  • ‘The Healing Platform”: refers to the Innate inherent process of natural self-repair.
  • “Build Your Own Cure”: What does cure mean?  Is the resolution of cancer about the art of curing or the science of healing?
  • “Discover What Thousands Have Done To Conquer Cancer”:  Are we focused on conquering the disorder called cancer or are we building up the inherent immune potentials with a combination of strategies? What is our focus? Who gets the credit?

Do you see what I am getting at here?  I think Katherine is right. There are two elements in the successful journey from disorder back into the state of order. One is the constant quality of Life flowing through all systems and tissues and sparking them into full expression. Anything stoping this is creating an environment for cancer to exist.  The other?  This is where all the confusion sets in. Chemotherapy for example, is the monetization of cancer treatment without accountability for the collateral damages. Where do we draw the line? Are we fighting the absence of health? Or are we, as allies of the eternally dwelling Life Force, advocates of its optimal expression.  Obviously there are a multitude of ways to support healing. But at what point does the intention shift from healing to the act or business of fixing and conquering?  One is a medical act and the other a natural phenomenon.  Can the two coexist in an harmonious way? Or is there always going to be the drama of politics and the inevitable abuses of power?

What Are The 5 Requirements For Success In Your Chiropractic Care?

“If you can be stopped you will be stopped.” (unknown)

  1. Learn and understand and take advantage of The Big Idea. The big idea of the chiropractic profession is summed up in this Major Premise. ” A Universal Intelligence  (UI) is in all matter and continually gives to it all its properties and actions, thus  maintaining it in existence.” Here’s a simple way to understand this : If your body is created from one cell and was built into trillions of cells with all its parts in under four months; it is reasonable to say that the human body has within its power, the ability to self-heal and self-regulate.  Chiropractic calls this inherent power to organize and create order:  Innate Intelligence (II) II is an individual unit of UI.  This is not a religious concept. Is the Life Principle. Everything is connected to Source provided there is no interruption by interferences.  The principle of life permeating the body is similar to our awarness of gravity. We may not understand it completely but we don’t have to, for it to work in our lives.
  2. Go beyond symptom treatment for relief into health creation for release. Transcend the medication of dysfuntion into the expression of optimal function through your body’s primary operating system – your brain, spinal communications and peripheral nerves.
  3. Consider that the living body always has 100% of what is necessary to adapt
  4. Know that the more alive you are; the more authentic you can be in your one life.
  5. Understand that Sub-Lux-Ation=the state of less life expression. Admit that when you live a big life; your body is in constant need of tuning; like any musical instrument. Get your spine checked and adjusted regularly regardless of how you feel.
