Holidays & Angels
Ready, set, don’t stress! Yes, it is the holidays, but that doesn’t mean we have to stress ourselves out over it. Of course, there’s lots to do; but don’t forget what this time is about. It’s important to remember to treat everyone with patience, kindness, and compassion – and, don’t forget, this includes you! With that being said, it’s important to take the holidays slow.
Let’s talk about the magic of Angels!
This is the season when many of us think about Angels. If you have never asked an Angel for help or if you have, but didn’t feel it got you anywhere, we would like to share a few tips we have learned from our dear friend & bestselling author, Anthony William. He reminds us that the first step in working with Angels is to give the Angels your true consent. They know how challenging life on earth can be and they are here to offer us their support, love and guidance. The second tip we’re about to share is a life changer. Once we started doing this we noticed a remarkable difference in our experience with these heavenly beings. So, ask the Angels out loud for their help. Call them by name.* We don’t mean scream it, but say it out loud. Don’t keep it as a thought. Imagine the Angels trying to read your mind, with all the thoughts, worries and dramas going on in there. Make it easy for them, give them a clear read on what you want help with. Many of you have already shared how helpful these tips have been and we have been in awe of your stories. Miraculous things happen when you have Angels on your side. May the Angels light and bless your Holidays.

So, in closing, we feel very blessed to have all of you as friends and associates! We both want to wish the happiest of holidays to you and yours and an amazing New Year in 2017!!

Earthing / Grounding
Welcome to summer! It’s a time for vacations, being with family and friends, and doing exciting new things. Hopefully, you will find time for all summer has to offer here in the Northwest. This is one of the greatest places on earth to spend your summer!
Talking about summer, do you remember going barefoot as a kid? How dirty your feet would get and how great it felt to walk in wet grass? As adults we don’t get to do that very often. Did you know that there are many health benefits to walking barefoot? Some of the benefits of walking barefoot or earthing are: improvement in energy levels, immune function, chronic pain, and inflammation. These and more benefits are reported by the Journal of Environmental and Public Health.

Earthing: The process of absorbing earths free flowing electrons from it’s surface through the soles of ones feet.
So, go outside and play this summer!
Everyone’s Talking About Flu Shots!
Our patients often want to know what type of flu shots we take. We would NEVER get a flu shot!! Why? Because we don’t believe they really work and does anyone really know what’s in them?? But, we will share with you what types of supplement ‘shots’ we do take if we have a cold/flu or just want to improve our immune system.
At the first sign or even a hint of getting sick we take:
Place the zinc & goldenseal in a shot glass with a little water or juice and hold under your tongue for a few seconds, then swallow. Yes, you will make a funny face because it tastes bad! But it’s worth not getting sick or being sick for weeks, like many do.
When we really want to super charge our immune system we will add Sovereign Silver shots throughout the day. Just hold under your tongue for 30 seconds and then swallow. Other great supplements to have on hand during the flu season are olive leaf, mullein leaf, lomatium root, and elderberry. And as the old saying goes – feed a cold and starve a fever. Just remember your body is asking for rest. It’s time to slow down, sleep and let healing happen.
How Healing Works
Welcome to the month of February! As you can imagine we get lots of questions about how the body heals and why sometimes it takes longer than we would like.
One of the most common questions we hear at our office is:
“I still have this pain –
I have a pain that I didn’t have before –
I’m having things happen that are uncomfortable – …
is that normal? Am I okay? Is this part of the healing process??”
The answer to these questions is: “YES, YES, YES!”
This is where the body’s version of healing & the mind’s version are quite different. The mind very distinctly says that any discomfort at all is wrong, bad and should be stopped. The body, on the other hand, says – it took a long time to disconnect to the point of having whatever “symptoms” (i.e., the body’s call for help) show up. So, it can take some rearranging & even reconstruction before things are on a more even keel. It is very similar to remodeling. Sometimes it takes some demolition and removal of outdated parts so we can update & upgrade the system. A mere removal of the symptoms never truly addresses the deeper parts which are the causes of ill health.
So healing may not work the way we think. The mind, no matter what it knows about the body, really has very little idea of what the body’s process is and how it heals. Your body’s wisdom is amazing and it knows how to heal! When you start trusting that wisdom, true healing happens!
Watch what it does and allow it to rebuild and remodel itself. Listen to your body and don’t make it wrong. As you observe it go through its process, you will begin to trust your body and that process more and more. And you will notice that things are changing for the better – in all different aspects of your life!

Not Your Ordinary Chiropractor
This is our very first newsletter, and we’re excited to be sharing it with you! Why? Because healing is our passion, and it’s about our journey through life. Our hope is that this will inspire you to take time for your own healing and join our community right here in our little corner of the world, where you will feel supported in Seattle. Feel free to reach out with your questions and suggestions. We would love to hear what you have to say!
One of the first things people ask us is why do you consider yourselves to be “not your ordinary chiropractor”? The answer is because we see things differently than most. Instead of looking at what’s wrong with your body, we focus on what is already working well; and, expanding on that, people experience amazing physical, emotional and spiritual results.
To get these results we must adopt a very different point of view. We begin to see the body’s genius, and allow it to do its work. This is different from our cultural point of view, which always looks for the problem. Seeing things this way actually allows your body to heal naturally! We begin to trust our bodies and see they are not to fear but to enjoy. Our bodies are our friends and are here to help us on our journey. This is why I’m “not your ordinary chiropractor”; I don’t think anything is wrong with you!
So by beginning to relax the fear and confusion about our bodies, we begin to live in them and begin to enjoy them. Experience, not information, provides the relationship with our bodies. By experiencing our bodies, we find many of the “problems” are only appearing as a part of the body’s process; they change and disappear without us having to do anything.
So, this is what we attribute our success to – your body! Without it, how would we really know how to serve you? It may seem a bit of a stretch, but your body knows everything. So our hope is to get people more and more connected to their bodies so they can live healthier, happier lives.
The real gift on this journey is that things can and do change. Trust yourself, you’re doing a great job! And remember, take time for your healing!
Healing Happens Here!
