"The power that made the body heals the body" and "remove the interference and the body will heal itself" are ideas that led me to choose chiropractic care for my family and inspired me to expand my holistic healing practice through obtaining a Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Life University.
During my time in the chiropractic program I was exposed to a variety of ideas, opinions and dogma about what chiropractic is and isn't. But through my own research and experience I gained an understanding and saw evidence of the principles of vitalism as a viable model for health care.
It is for this reason I am honored and inspired to support an organization committed to these principles and to further research and promotion for the benefit of humanity. From the Advancing Futures Research Agenda (http://www.vertebralsubluxation.org )
We stand behind these vitalistic principles:
· The body is a self-regulating, self-maintaining organism;
· The nervous system controls and coordinates all functions of the body;
· The spine and vertebrae house and protect the nervous system;
· Vertebral subluxations can occur and interfere with the function of the nervous system;
· Reducing and/or correcting vertebral subluxations allows the nervous system to function better and allows the fullest expression of life.
This research agenda seeks to validate the profession and position chiropractic as a vitalistic, scientific, evidence-informed clinical practice. The more research, the greater the chance the profession will have of gaining a higher degree of respect, understanding and acceptance in the health care marketplace, the scientific community and among the patients it serves. It is imperative to make these new research advancements available to the public, other health professions, and to legislators in order to promote and to systematically advance the field of subluxation centered chiropractic through the initiation of favorable public health policy.
Please donate or create your own fundraiser for FVSR and join me to ensure these principles continue to be researched and presented.
My subluxation based research paper will be presented at the American Chiropractic Colleges - Research Agenda Conference in March. My participation and travel are being made possible by a generous grant from the Foundation and my goal is to raise ten times the amount of that grant and 1000 times the awareness.
Sharing these principles is my passion and life's work. Thank you for supporting me in it and improving the health and wellness of mankind.
What Is 300 Days of Run?
300 Days of Run began as a 'one-day' item that seemed like an incredible running feat.
Bold yet doabale. Outrageous yet achievable.
Well, after about 2 years of kicking it around in my head, one day while running, the discussion became trying to figure out the ‘next’ goal for a few people who liked to create ‘crazy’ running goals for common runners. 300 Days of Run was born.
Why not the 300 Days of running within a year? Plus 2016 would be the easiest year ever (considering you get an extra day with the leap year!).
The idea was also to make it something bigger than just the runner and his or her own personal running goal - which would be a HUGE achievement. 300 Days of Run makes the milestone MORE memorable by joining it with the satisfaction of raising money for charity at the same time in order to make the achievement even more outstanding.
Now 300 Days of Run is a reality and you can participate - by donating to a runner or even running it yourself!
Anyone can participate in the event. To Run - all you will need to be able to track your runs and make the minimum run distance and speed for the run. While 300 days of running in a year may seem outrageous, it is an achievable goal for those who are determined to make it happen. To Donate - well all you need is a credit card...
A HUGE thanks to the volunteers who helped engineer the site and make this all a possibility and a very special thanks to all of the participants who are helping to make 300 Days of Run a reailty!
Here's to 300 Days of Run in 2016!
