Good morning!

The medical model states everything in your body is fine until symptoms or tests show it is not. Once there are symptoms or positive tests, something is wrong and should be treated with drugs or surgery. If the symptoms are gone as a result, your body is fine again.

This model is deadly for three reasons:

1. By the time a symptom arrives, you could be in a whole lot of trouble. All of the most deadly or severely debilitating diseases develop silently - without any real signs, symptoms, or positive test results. By the time of a warning or positive test, it may be too late to treat or even save your life.

2. The most common treatments of drugs and surgery are often more deadly than the conditions themselves.  In fact, drugs and surgery are ranked as either the third or first leading cause of death in America depending on which research you look at.

Even natural health care is used within the medical model in that most people will wait and "treat" things naturally once again after the condition shows up.  

The WELLNESS model is about maximizing your health and the function of your body all of the time- whether or not you have symptoms. If symptoms do arise, we look to see what areas are not maximized and work harder to get them there. The goal: get 100% well through 100% function and stay there.

The WELLNESS model not only works and makes sense, it is not deadly in any way.

Recently, a major medical breakthrough took place in the care of heart disease. The medical people looked at it through the medical model - "New treatment for hypertension (High blood pressure)."

However, what really happened was care was given to restore health, function, and healing so blood pressure went back to normal. The care should have been going on long before the symptoms were there and the tests were positive.

Chiropractic Cuts Blood Pressure

Study Finds Special 'Atlas Adjustment' Lowers Blood Pressure

By Daniel J. DeNoon, WebMD Medical News, Reviewed by Louise Chang, MD

March 16, 2007 - A special Chiropractic adjustment can significantly lower high blood pressure, a placebo-controlled study suggests.

"This procedure has the effect of not one, but two blood-pressure medications given in combination," study leader George Bakris, MD, tells WebMD. "And it seems to be adverse-event free. We saw no side effects and no problems," adds Bakris, director of theUniversity of Chicago hypertension center (where millions are injured or killed each year by drug side-effects, that is saying something.)

Eight weeks after undergoing the procedure, 25 patients with early-stage high blood pressure had significantly lower blood pressure than 25 similar patients who underwent a sham chiropractic adjustment. Because patients can not feel the technique, they were unable to tell which group they were in.

X-rays showed that the procedure realigned the Atlas vertebra - the doughnut-like bone at the very top of the spine - with the spine in the treated patients, but not in the sham-treated patients.

Compared to the sham-treated patients, those who got the real procedure saw an average 14 mm Hg greater drop in systolic blood pressure (the top number in a blood pressure count), and an average 8 mm Hg greater drop in diastolic blood pressure (the bottom blood pressure number).

None of the patients took blood pressure medicine during the eight-week study.

"When the statistician brought me the data, I actually didn't believe it. It was way too good to be true," Bakris says. "The statistician said, 'I don't even believe it.' But we checked for everything, and there it was." Bakris and colleagues report their findings in the advance online issue of the Journal of Human Hypertension.

I was on an elevator several years ago when a man asked his friend where he was headed. The friend responded, "To take my daughter to the chiropractor."

Perplexed to the point of being annoyed, the man said, "To the Chiropractor! Isn't your daughter only 12? She couldn't possibly need a Chiropractor!"

"I don't understand it either," the friend replied. "When she goes to the chiropractor, her asthma and allergies get a lot better, and if we don't, they get worse! So we never miss a visit.  My wife and I go to."

With millions of people getting amazing results and research project after research project backing the findings, Chiropractic finally gets it's props on the #1 medical web site in the world. Tens of millions will give the response the doctor gave, "I didn't believe it."  The proof, however, is in the stethoscope.

The atlas, when misaligned, causes a disease process in every organ, cell, and function in your body. Whether or not you have symptoms or a positive tests, you need to find out if your atlas is in it's normal position before it's too late, deadly, and in need of the medical model.
