An Important Chiropractic Lesson From Watching My Garden... 
Many of you who have spent time with me know how excited I am about my new tower garden. What you might not expect to hear about is the wonderful chiropractic lesson that was right in front of me the whole time!

Batten Down The Hatches...

With the unpredictable stormy weather, limited sunlight of a northward facing balcony, and an accidental unplugging of the water supply on a 105 degree day, my tower garden has had quite a rough life. Yet despite all of this, the plants are thriving and continue to grow! Day after day they seem to tirelessly continue to adapt and grow until the end of their life.

Where does health come from?

As a chiropractor we know that life is an expression of an inborn intelligence that is working through the organism. In the case of the plants, this intelligence works to keep the plant healthy and growing all the way up to the end of its life. No matter the conditions, the intelligence is constantly working to adapt the plant to the environment attempting to keep it as healthy and productive as possible. Those of you who have watched a garden for any length of time have no doubt seen plants grown and adapt to the most varied of circumstances.

Here is the good news!

The exciting part is that you have this same intelligence working through you too! From your first moment, your innate intelligence has been working to keep you thriving. This intelligence monitors and communicates with all parts of your body through your nervous system. Chiropractors check to make sure that there is no physical tension that is altering the way this system is working (subluxation). When the messages transmitted through your nervous system are altered, your innate intelligence cannot do as good of a job keeping you at your best.

The job of the chiropractor is to check you for and, when needed, provide a gentle adjustment designed to help you reduce subluxation. When this is done, your innate intelligence is then better able to express itself through you.

This is very exciting, because, just like the plant, your innate intelligence is constantly working to keep you as healthy and productive as possible! A better expression of life might mean that you can relate better with your loved ones. It may mean that you perform better in sports or at work. It may mean that you live a longer, healthier, and more vibrant life. Whatever it means for you, consistent chiropractic care leads to exciting changes in your quality of life.

Everyone deserves to live a fully expressed life. It is important to regularly get checked for subluxation, so stop in today. You will be happy that you did!

Why Should I Get Checked for Subluxation?  
From the very first moment of your life, you have had an ever vigilant innate (inborn) intelligence that has been monitoring your needs and adapting you to the environment. This intelligence communicates with all parts of your body through the nerve system.

It is very common for the stresses and strains of everyday life to accumulate in the physical body. This simply means that, for any number of reasons, the body is, to some degree, unable to let go of the reactions that occurred during past stressful events. These "locked in" reactions partially anchor the function of the nerve system out of present time (into old reactive patterns that occurred in response to past stressful events). Locked out of present time, your ability to adapt to life's current challenges is less than what it would be if the free range of function of the nerve system was accessible.

Chiropractors have a name for this impaired state: Subluxation. When subluxation is locked into your body, the messages that your innate intelligence receives and attempts to transmit through the nerve system are altered. Altered perception of and altered response to life's challenges is the result of subluxation.

The job of the chiropractor is to check you for subluxation and make an adjustment if necessary. We do this because, based on logic, every human being is better off without subluxation. When adjusted, your innate intelligence is in better communication with your body, which makes you better able to deal with life's challenges on any level.

Since we are constantly bombarded by stress, it is important to regularly get checked for subluxation for the purpose of making sure that your innate intelligence has an optimally functioning nerve system to work through. Understanding and utilizing this is the cornerstone of a happy, healthy, and productive life.

Could subluxation be robbing you of your full potential? What is stopping you from getting checked by your chiropractor today?

Tower Garden Update! 
Just a quick update since some of you have been asking. :-) Here is a recent picture of my Tower Garden

As you can see, it has grown quite a lot over the last month or so, and the three varieties of kale are thriving even in the extreme heat.

My balcony gets very little direct sunlight since I face due North. With a sunny spot, your produce will grow MUCH quicker. As you can see, I hung a reflective sheet of Mylar to enhance the light on my Tower. I believe this has helped the plants!

I am so thankful to be able to eat fresh homegrown produce on a daily basis. If you have ever wanted to grow more of your own food at home, this is definitely the way to go! Most of the mess of traditional gardening is eliminated, and the yield is much higher than using soil.
