  1. 1. WELCOME to BUENO CHIROPRACTIC! Discovering the truth about how your body really works and how Chiropractic can help you Optimize your Health & Life! Copyright 2008, Kevin Donka, D.C. - Chirothots (847) 458-6900
  2. 2. Let’s Start With Some Basics • The smallest units of Life in your body are called CELLS. • You have several hundred TRILLION cells in your body. • All of your cells must work HARMONIOUSLY TOGETHER for you to be healthy and happy.
  3. 3. Think of a Symphony… Is there a difference between what you hear during the warm-up and the concert?
  4. 4. What’s Makes the Difference? During the concert, someone is DIRECTING the musicians so that they are ORGANIZED and COORDINATED for a COMMON PURPOSE.
  5. 5. What part of your body DIRECTS all of your of cells so that they are ORGANIZED and COORDINATED for a COMMON PURPOSE?
  6. 6. Your Brain and Nerve System • No cell works effectively unless it is CONNECTED to your brain! • Your body is CONNECTED to your brain through your NERVE SYSTEM. • BUT…The brain does NOT direct the cells by itself… • Dead bodies have brains, nerve systems and cells too… • What’s The difference?
  7. 7. Live Bodies Vs. Dead Bodies • There is an ENERGY PRESENT in a live body that is ABSENT in a dead body. • We call this your LIFE ENERGY or LIFE FORCE. • You are more than your body; you are an intelligent and loving energetic being! • Your Body is your VEHICLE - and YOU are the DRIVER!
  8. 8. What is “HEALTH?” • Normal function and the ability to successfully adapt to most of the stresses you face each day. • What is “stress?” • Anything that causes a need for your body to respond or change in some way. • Stresses can be physical, chemical or mental/emotional.
  9. 9. Back to “HEALTH…” • HEALTH is defined as normal function and the ability to successfully ADAPT to most of the stresses you face each day. • Very simply, health is Balance, Harmony and EASE.
  10. 10. But where does health actually come from? Health is the natural result of the adequate expression of your Life Energy in your body.
  11. 11. What is meant by “adequate” expression of Life Energy? • Is the amount of food and water necessary to simply stay alive different than what is needed to be healthy? • The same is true with your Life Energy…
  12. 12. A specific quantity of your Life Energy must be expressed in your body in order for you to function normally and successfully adapt to your environment.
  13. 13. How Does Your Life Energy Create Health? • Remember, the purpose of your Life Energy is to intelligently and purposefully ORGANIZE all of your cells to work harmoniously together! • Disorganization = Dis-ease • Organization = Harmony = HEALTH!
  14. 14. Your Body is Constantly Changing • There are literally thousands of things happening in every cell, every second. • Your body is changing every moment you are alive! Once you understand this…
  15. 15. it’s also easy to also understand that there are only two ways that your body can change in any moment… • You can get a little stronger, or… • You can get a little weaker. • Our goal is at the end of the day to have spent more time getting stronger than weaker, so that we have become stronger overall each day.
  16. 16. What Determines the Strength of Your Cells and Your Body? The strength (health) of your body at any given moment is determined by how fully you are expressing your Life Energy in your cells.
  17. 17. Maximizing the expression of Life Energy in your body automatically brings health… AND SO MUCH MORE!!! ?
  18. 18. The Path Toward Wholeness Expression of Life Energy Dead Dis-ease Ease/Health Wellness Wholeness “Health” is Just the Beginning! • As you express higher and higher levels of your Life Energy in your body, you move consistently toward Health, Wellness and Wholeness! • Wholeness = Total integration of Body, Mind and Spirit so that you are lovingly expressing your purpose and potential in every area of your life.
  19. 19. Now That You Know… • Every moment your body is getting either stronger or weaker, and… • The strength of your body is determined by how fully you are expressing your Life Energy in your cells… • The next logical question is…
  20. 20. How can we maximize the expression of Life Energy in the body so that we can keep growing Stronger and Healthier?
  21. 21. Three Things are Needed… 1) A Deliberate and Positive Focus 2) A Healthy Lifestyle 3) A “Clear” Neurological CONNECTION between your brain and your body
  22. 22. Clear Neurological Connection? A well-aligned and functioning SPINE is necessary to maintain a Clear Neurological CONNECTION between your brain and your body. WHY?
  23. 23. Your Spine and Nerve System are very intimately CONNECTED with each other!
  24. 24. Because of this intimate CONNECTION between your spine and your nerve system… If your spine LOSES its normal alignment or function, it causes a partial LOSS OF CONNECTION between your brain and your body as well.
  25. 25. “SUBLUXATION” • We call this loss of connection and decrease in the expression of your Life Energy “SUBLUXATION.” • Sub = Less/Decreased Lux = Light
  26. 26. The “Safety Pin Cycle” EASE Body Brain Adjusted/Connected ---------------------------------------- Body Brain DIS-EASE Subluxated/Disconnected
  27. 27. “SUBLUXATION” • The loss of CONNECTION and loss of the normal flow of your Life Energy causes you to lose your ability to intelligently and purposefully ORGANIZE your cells and tissues to work together harmoniously… You LOSE your natural state of EASE
  28. 28. The problem is not that you HAVE something you shouldn’t have; it’s that you have partially LOST your CONNECTION between your brain and your body!
  29. 29. How Can Chiropractic Help Me Get Back to EASE/Health? Harmony, EASE, Healing Increased Ability to Purposefully ORGANIZE Body Normal Flow of Life Energy Re-established Neurological CONNECTION Between Brain & Body Normal Alignment & Function of Spine Specific Chiropractic Adjustment
  30. 30. What is “Healing?” Expression of Life Energy Dead Dis-ease Ease/Health Wellness Wholeness • “Healing” = Any movement toward Wholeness, regardless of where you are at any given moment. • It occurs as you increase the expression of your Life Energy in your body.
  31. 31. What is “Healing?” Expression of Life Energy Dead Dis-ease Ease/Health Wellness Wholeness • “HEALING” is a PROCESS that requires… • TIME • Your ACTIVE PARTICIPATION.
  32. 32. The Goal of Your Chiropractic Program is Simple… To help you restore and maintain All 3 Things you need to keep growing stronger and healthier and moving toward ever-higher levels of Health, Wellness and Wholeness for as long as you live!
