Episode Description

I will be talking with a retired anesthesiologist about the possibilities of utilizing Western Medicine in conjunction with Chiropractic to help a condition - NOT EXCLUSIVELY USING 1 OR THE OTHER, as many people seem to do. Western Medicine can visualize and handle dangerous problems while Chiropractic can treat routine back pain (which is incredibly common). The training of muscles is crucially important in preventing injury. However once an injury occurs, the object is to cure it with as little lasting pain and disability as possible. We will talk about the treatment of pain throughout both systems and the minimization of lasting effects..

Miracles of Chiropractic: Turning on the Power Within

Archives Available on VoiceAmerica Health and Wellness Channel

This show is about how Chiropractic can help you whether or not you believe in it. This drug-free alternative to traditional medicine has the power to positively unleash the body’s own healing energy. Medical research is constantly demonstrating how Chiropractic care saves time and money compared to the Western Medicine paradigm of “mask the symptoms with drugs.”

You can realize that many of your conditions are fixable or can be helped. Complementary healing methods can often work together with spectacular results.

On the show we will talk about what “adjusting” means, the specific benefits of upper Cervical Chiropractic, several complimentary healing methods, how DC’s benefit chronic conditions, and specific neurological conditions like epileptic seizures or fibromyalgia. We will talk about this using current research, specific cases, and philosophy.

While there, she was hit by a tortilla truck while walking, and spent the next year and a half in a hospital in Boston, Massachusetts. After escaping the hospital, she returned to Belize and met a chiropractor. He made such a positive change in her life, she graduated from Chiropractic School, and has since been able to make a similar impact on others. Her special emphasis is patients with traumatic or acquired brain injuries.

Craig Maurer, DC

Julie Laura Rose

Her path began as a hobby to stay out of the offices of Dr’s who were prescribing antibiotics, but not helping her sore throats and swollen glands. She began taking high dosages of Vitamin C. She then progressed to studying natural healing, including bodywork, herbs, foods, and nutrition systems. At 15, she read about how acupuncture was used post-surgically to stop pain in Chinese medicine. That became her goal. However, there were no colleges for acupuncture in the U.S., so she spent the next 20 years studying herbs, foods, “qi” (life force energy), and fundamental ways to address and reverse imbalances that become illness. She got to school with much experience about natural healing in many cultures, and the mental/emotional/physical connection that can lead to imbalances we call illness. She spent five years in Latin America (including Peace Corps in Costa Rica), and seven years at New York Newsday, winning six awards for excellence in journalism. She spent the final 15 months before graduate school at Lincoln Recovery Center, in the Bronx, volunteering to learn the auricular acu-detox protocol (acu-detox on www.acuwoman.com) and as an apprentice to an herbalist. She has a Masters Degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine. In 1996, she became a state licensed acupuncturist, from at the Academy of Chinese Culture and Health Sciences. She is nationally certified in acupuncture and Chinese herbalism. Her learning centers around the many factors in people’s daily lives that can cause or contribute to disturbances of physical or emotional well-being Her learning has led to the conclusion that most imbalances that lead to a chronic problem are “repetitive strain injuries”: too much of anything, even something good, can cause an imbalance. Her goal is to empower people to change their condition and avoid recurrences. View Guest page

Robert M. Woolery, DC

Dr. Bob entered Chiropractic as a healer after 25 years of physical trauma and industrial poisonings as a welder. In this profession, he found the research to explain his own health issues stemming from his previous history. Reading with a critical eye has allowed him to see both the personal and professional applications of these studies. He believes this knowledge is available and should be shared. Due to his own neurological trauma (from a car accident as a child) and resulting behavior, he has become knowledgeable in the balance mechanisms of the human body. His special focus is on these brain stem/body connections. How these connections form in whole and damaged human beings is not just theoretical; but, as seen from his own history, a practical and fruitful source of inquiry. View Guest page
