Everything is Energy

You get to choose the energy you vibrate with, watch to learn more.

Every thought you have is energy being put out into the universe.  When you are focusing on pain, what kind of energy are you putting out?

I realize that when you are suffering from pain it is challenging to direct your thoughts to anything else.  Dwelling on what you are feeling in that moment only draws you more into the suffering you are experiencing.

Too many people fall victim to how their body feels.

Many of us become victims of our bodies and our suffering.  We feel we have no control over what is happening.  The thing to remember is that the body always has the ability to heal.  At no point would we survive on this earth without the ability to heal, when we can no longer heal, we die.  YOU have the ability to heal.  Remove the interference, support normal body function, and remove the resistance in your mind and body.

To break the cycle of pain and suffering you need to make choices.

You need to choose to break free of the thoughts that are trapping you in this cycle.  You need to choose to focus on what it is you truly want.  Not just being pain free but focusing on how what being pain free will allow you in your life.  What are the feelings associated with being able to do the things you want to be doing.  Hold on to that energy and you will create it in your life.  You will create healing, energy, and vitality!

How Dr. Nancy started as a chiropractic patient with migraines, headaches, and upper back pain and her journey to becoming a chiropractor and chiropractic mama.

An Aspirin a Day Keeps…. WHAT?!?!?

I was digging around in my desk for some scrap paper and I find a calendar saying “Take two baby aspirin a day…”

aspirin a day Barrhaven chiropractor Ottawa chiropractic headaches neck pain back tension

I’m in my mid thirties.  At first I feel afraid thinking I’ll be 40 in a few years and then I should be taking drugs everyday, for the rest of my life!  Then I catch myself.  See I grew up in the medical model just like most people do.

I was taught to reach for the cream, the aspirin, when something is going wrong, when I had a rash, or a headache.

Then I remember I dropped that way of thinking a long time ago, but the childhood brainwashing from big pharma is still there.  Then I get angry, Continue reading

1 in 5 Moms admit to Drugging their Kids!

Oh My Goodness!!! I can’t believe, well I guess I can but just don’t want to, that 20% of parents are willing to drugs their children with no medical reason.Children's Benadryl, Tylenol, drugs, sleep, chiropractor barrhaven. ottawa chiropractic

“Most of us would never drug our kids, right? That’s the stuff of tabloid headlines, not good parenting. At least, that’s what we tell ourselves until we’re getting on an airplane with an overtired, agitated toddler who just can’t seem to settle down.

Then the bottle of children’s Benadryl in your first aid kit starts looking awfully appealing. Continue reading

Video of Birth by Monty Python

Does this video of birth seem a little too real?

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NcHdF1eHhgc&feature=fvwrel

I love this video. Obviously a satire of current birthing practices but in reality the attitudes do reflect what western culture’s attitude is towards birth.

“Leave it all to us.”  Women aren’t encouraged to take control of their childbirth.  They are Continue reading
