** This Month's Shocker -- Asthma Rates on the Rise!

May 3, 2011 Researchers at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) report that the number of persons diagnosed with asthma is up by 4.3 million in the last ten years... but they don't know why. The nearly $60,000,000,000 (60 BILLION)/year spent on “treatment” has failed to stem the tide. SO... what's the CDC's plan going forward then?? Better symptom management ”. Translation: More drugs .

See article ->

True story : In December, 2000 an 11-yr old patient's mom asked – “... Can you really cure his asthma ?” I believed that I could (yea, I know.. Mr. Big Shot!). Robbie was a gifted young hockey player with a strong pedigree. His dad had been drafted by the Montreal Canadiens; and his three older brothers were high achievers on the rink as well. Problem was – Robbie was missing a third of his games with his breathing problems. And his performance suffered in the games he was able to play.

Long story short – with 4-5 treatments and regimen refinements over 6 weeks, Robbie tossed his inhaler, and he hasn't required it since! His lung function improved dramatically, and missing hockey games was no longer an issue.

As is so common – Robbie's “asthma” wasn't primarily a LUNG problem at all. Temporary fixes such as bronchodilators surely provide welcome (sometimes life saving) relief, but do ZERO to affect actual HEALING. Organs and glands have specific jobs to do... but they all communicate with each other in countless information feedback loops. Getting to the root of asthma means bringing disordered communication into balance, and in the process, reducing the body's tendency to inappropriately inflame (in this case – airways in the lungs). This usually means dietary modification, and specific nutritional supplementation.

Applied Kinesiological evaluation revealed a number of over-taxed glands and organs... primarily Robbie's adrenal glands. In his case – interestingly enough – the critical supplement (and this has never changed) is WHEAT GERM OIL. For him , it's the appropriate source of Omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E. But there is no one-size-fits-all regimen. Applied Kinesiology allows us to target your specific nutrient deficiencies.

What's he doing now? ...

Having just finished his junior year, Robbie is on full hockey scholarship at Northeastern University in Boston.

Call to action ...

If you suffer from asthma, and are tired of the drug merry-go-round, I'd encourage you to schedule an evaluation with me. Let's see if we can't tap into your body's natural, innate capacity to heal itself!! :))


BAX Aura -- Neurological Stress Reduction Therapy (or as I like to call it -- “Homeopathy on steroids!”)

W e’ve all seen the scene in the cop shows in which the lie detector’s needle bounces all over the place as a suspect responds to a detective’s questions. Ever wonder what’s up with that?

Well… a subtle energy, known in chiropractic as “ Innate ”, or the “ Life Force ”; or “ Chi ” in Chinese medicine… exists in all living things. A lie detector (or, “polygraph”) is a meter that measures changes in this electrical activity.

Stress (emotional, physical, chemical) causes aberrations from our normal baseline energy. Have you noticed the emotional discomfort which ALWAYS accompanies the telling of lie? Yes -- making a statement that you KNOW differs from the truth ALWAYS causes energetic disharmony… a.k.a., STRESS !

A bank robber who denies that the blue dye on his hands is from the booby-trapped bag of money, will always demonstrate an enormously greater stress response than would an innocent bystander responding to questioning. It is this heightened stress response of the thief which causes the lie detector’s needle to jump off the charts!!

Now - An Environmental Stress Lie Detector??

H ow cool would it be if there were a way to determine the body’s physiological response to thousands of different stressors (foods, environmental toxins, pet dander, chemicals, emotions, etc., etc,) we encounter in our daily lives?? And furthermore, to be able to DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!? Well – NOW THERE IS. And Manning Chiropractic & Sports Kinesiology is the first office in Massachusetts to offer it!! In October, 2010 I took the plunge... and after three long days of training last October in Atlanta, I made the purchase.

Enter the BAX AURA , from Bioveda Technologies ...

Healthy life energy is not static! In a dynamic living system, there is a free flow of energy, and a delicate balancing act among multiple forces which are in constant flux.

The BAX AURA is a sophisticated computer which incorporates a screening process to determine energetic imbalances in the body. It operates as an environmental and emotional lie detector. An arm cuff allows the BAX to communicate with your energetic field. The unit sends through the body, low-level signals corresponding to the unique frequencies of thousands of common things we may ingest, or come in contact with in our environments. And – it measures the body’s electrical response to each! If apples cause stomach upset for instance, the BAX will recognize that as a “spike” off the normal resting energy baseline.

The BAX AURA can IDENTIFY stress responses to everything from the foods we eat to the air we breathe… even emotions . And it’ll TREAT the imbalances too!!

Yep! After identifying the energetic “signatures” of particular foods or other substances which are stressful, we then can actually address the imbalances with Low-Level Light Therapy . The BAX determines specific homeopathic or harmonic frequencies which will support the body’s efforts to maintain balance in the presence of these stressors. We then deliver those frequencies via LASER beam to specific acupoints. This laser energy causes the brain to release endorphins, and works to reduce the negative response to the problem foods, etc.

The result? – As the body comes into greater energetic balance over the course of the basic ten visit treatment protocol, patients generally find increasing relief from many of their symptoms. The BAX does not “diagnose” or treat any specific disease. The effects of reducing energetic disharmony in the body, allows for normal and natural healing to take place.

In the last 7 months, dozens of patients have completed the BAX Aura protocol here. Responses have ranged from minimal (several very difficult cases) to phenomenal ... with a couple bordering on miraculous . The most common issues that we've seen respond well to the energetic balancing are in the areas of digestion, allergies and (believe it or not) emotional wellbeing.

WOW... Energy Medicine!! After 25 years in Applied Kinesiology Chiropractic/Wellness it just keeps getting better :)

Back at you soon.

Yours in vibrant health,
