Are Things Really in Our Heads?

Prior to this post, we did a three part series entitled “Genes Didn’t Do This to You”. We talked about Dr. Bruce Lipton speaking about how our thoughts can determine our health outcome.

How about no thoughts?

What am I talking about? I don’t know if you are aware, but I am involved with animals and animal chiropractic. I have been taking my animals to a chiropractor for well over 20 years now. It started off with injuries as my animals were involved in dog sports, but as my understanding grew I started taking all of them right from the first week of life. They respond amazingly to chiropractic! It is generally done on dogs and horses, but any animal will benefit from chiropractic care.

I can’t tell you how many times people bring their dogs in for a limp and are AMAZED because after just one adjustment their dog isn’t incontinent anymore! They didn’t even tell us that was a problem in the first place. Being subluxated can cause a host of issues all over the body. The difference between animals and us is that they don’t have any pre-programmed beliefs. They come wherever we take them and put up with whatever we do to them, but once it’s over they shake it off and life goes on. They don’t think something will or won’t help them. They just are. I have seen some amazing transformations over the years with both dogs and horses. Even when that happens the owners still second guess what happened. The animal doesn’t have to. It feels better, it IS better and that’s all it knows.

Maybe it’s time to go back to the animal in us,
clear out thoughts and stop second-guessing or
worrying about what could go wrong.

Take a deep breath, clear your thoughts and be a dog!

  • I have been suffering with neck and back pain and lack of mobility since my early teens and I am now 27, but I have progressively had a harder time coping with it since I started working in Healthcare in 2019. It had gotten to the point where all I could think about was finding a different job throughout my shift because I wasn't sure how much longer I could handle it. I decided to give Chiropractic Medicine a try and I am so thankful I did! I have been going to Ancaster Family Chiropractic since July 2021 and I have experienced a significant improvement with reduced severity and frequency of pain, better range of motion in my neck and back, and I rarely have to take OTC pain medication which is something I was relying on daily beforehand. I am not even halfway through my treatment plan and I can't wait to continue experiencing improvement in my quality of life. Thank you, Dr. Neil, Sue and Deb!

  • Dr. Neil and the staff Deb and Sue were very helpful with dealing with my issues. I went in with a lower back pain and has been healing pretty well. I have noticed the adjustments and home exercise not only helped with the pain but also helped with my digestion issues such as bloating. They were very accommodating whenever I needed a change in visits.Overall a great place to get yourself healed.

  • Their philosophy of health and well being is encouraging, optimistic and realistic. I appreciate the idea of leading a healthy lifestyle and preventing illness rather than simply treating the symptoms of ailments. Also, there are times unexpected benefits to chiropractic care. I wholeheartedly recommend Ancaster Family Chiropractic.
