Are Your Kids in Need of Chiropractic?
Most people are surprised to find out that the first stress placed on a child’s neck and back is during the birthing process. An estimated 60-90 lbs. of force is used on an infant’s neck during “normal” delivery. Do you think this could cause damage to your child’s spine and nervous system? Fact: The nervous system controls every cell and organ (heart, lungs, brain, stomach) in your body. Equally surprising is the fact that 26% of children surveyed at school reported a history of back pain.
Have you watched your child play outside or with their friends? They run, jump, fall, roll, and tackle every day. Many adults that come to a chiropractor’s office show evidence of childhood injuries that can be the cause for their pain today. Do you think it is too early to teach your kids to take care of their teeth? When do you think it is a good time to have your child’s spine checked for serious signs of spinal imbalances or misalignments?
Fortunately, Chiropractic has had many positive results in children with common childhood problems. Problems like headache, scoliosis, asthma, colic, ear infections, asthma, and even some cases of behavioral problems respond well with chiropractic care. In fact, a recent study showed that children under chiropractic care suffered fewer ear infections than those whose parent took them to medical care alone.
Are chiropractic adjustments safe for children? Absolutely! Because a child’s skeletal system is still developing, only light pressure is needed to adjust a child’s spine. The few minutes you invest in your child’s spinal checkup may save them needless suffering now and in the future.
How can I tell if my child has spinal imbalances?
Just as it is important that you have your children’s teeth checked by a dentist, it is also important to have their spine checked regularly for proper development. Use the following list to check for spinal imbalances:
-Have your child bend over with arms dangling forward. When you run your hand over his or her spine, does it curve from side to side?
-Look at your child from the rear, does one shoulder blade stick out or appear to be higher than the other?
-When looking at your child from the rear, is one ear higher than the other?
-Does your child’s back appear to be humped or rounded?
-Do your child’s clothes fit properly; are hems and waistbands of skirts or pants even?
These “home evaluations” are just a few indicators why your child may need chiropractic care.
How about my infant?
You can also observe your baby to check for spinal imbalances:
-When your baby is lying on his back, does his head seem to tilt to one side?
-Does your baby prefer breastfeeding on one side?
-Does your baby arch her back when crying?
-Is your baby slow to develop adequate neck strength to hold his head up?
-An estimated 60-90 lbs. of force is used on an infant’s neck during “normal” delivery. Do you think this could cause damage to your child's spine and nervous system?

"I could not be more happy with my experience at The Drugless Doctors. Our whole family attends and I love that they are all very patient with our kids. I started seeing Dr. Casen toward the beginning of my pregnancy. This is my fifth pregnancy and I feel amazing! I am sleeping better than before and have way more energy than any of my other pregnancies. There are so many things I appreciate about these great doctors. They care about whole body health and want to educate you as much as possible on how to feel your best. Every time you come in they make you feel so good and every doctor greets you by name. It is really hard to find this quality of people in the medical industry and you always feel great after your visit. If you haven't guessed yet I highly recommend The Drugless Doctors!"

We love being able to help people everyday, and this week's #NoMeds story (practice member testimonial) comes from Gay:
“I first saw Dr Bob at a Mustard Seed seminar and was so impressed that I now drive 45 minutes each way to get my adjustments and nutritional help. I have several issues that the doctors are helping me with. My main reason for coming to see Dr Bob was for help to lose weight and little did I know that he would help me with my scoliosis and arthritis problems as well as keeping my blood pressure within a normal range. It all has to work together for the best results and I have been moving forward. I have learned so much and hope to continue to learn. And I truly enjoy seeing all three doctors as I feel that I can relate to each of them. What a joy to receive and learn so much from these great and knowledgeable people.” - Gay
We love responses like this and would love to help you, too! If you are interested in chiropractic and natural care, please contact us here for our Westlake and Elyria practices.
We all need to eat everyday to live. But when you are first committing to living a healthy lifestyle, where can you begin? Dr. Anthony shares the three foods to help kickstart this process. Also, go here to our sister-site on The Drugless Doctor for more information on these foods.

We know your health can be a personal issue, but we also know hearing stories from those who have benefited from chiropractic and drugless care can be an incentive for you to consider coming to see us. This is why we will be highlighting practice member's testimonials each week through 2016 from our Westlake and Elyria chiropractic practices. This week we have Monika:
"Taking drugs or surgery was not an option I wanted to take. The Doctors spent time listening to my concerns, and taking digital images to map out a plant just for me. After a few adjustments, I felt more centered in mind and body. The discomfort in my shoulder, wrists and feet are no longer an issue.
With their office workshops (informative health issues, recipes, etc.) we learn how our food choices and exercise (-11 lbs.) help complete the journey to our best, healthy life. Thanks to their enthusiasm and knowledge, I'm looking forward to an even better 2016."
We would love to help you too! Please visit our contact page for our hours and address.
One of the top questions we receive daily at our practice is, "How do I detoxify my body?". Many of us also want to cleanse our body the right way when beginning a new year, and we recently taped a "The Drugless Doctor" episode on detoxification. You can also view and download Dr. Bob's "Cleanse & Purify" devotional, now on YouVersion. If you have any questions, or would like to visit our chiropractic practice in Westlake, please go here. We would love to help you!
Each new year brings about intent to start fresh. That might mean doing your best to become healthier and to lose weight. Our office over the past few years has started each year with "The Drugless Diet" and we are now offering it on our website for the first time.
The diet provides you with the accountability of knowing one of our doctors will be reviewing your diet and fitness journals each week, helping you to make the appropriate changes to promote a healthier you. Currently, this program is only offered on-site at our Westlake and Elyria practice. Here is a run-down of what The Drugless Diet includes:
1. Initial Assessment: We develop an outline and strategy for you. This includes weight, pictures, tracking devices or halc pre and post test, BMI, waist measurement, and fat body analyzer.
2. Weekly diet and fitness journal reviews: This allows us to track your progress.
3. Welcome Packet: Includes information on what to eat, when to exercise, and helpful troubleshooting points for your weight loss.
4. Ending Assessment & Consultation: Weight, picture, BMI, waist measurement, and fat-body analyzer.
We have seen multiple benefits to our practice members who have participated in this program besides the weight loss element. Some of these include increased energy, more self-esteen, regular bowel movements, increased libido, and more.
The retail value for The Drugless Diet is over $1500, but the importance of changing your life is also important to us, which is why we are offering the program at only $250 to our current practice members and $450 to non-practice members.
Please contact us for more information, so we can help you have your healthiest year yet!
This article first appeared on our family site, druglessdoctor.com, with Dr. Bob's tips on how to boost your immune system:
Your immune system made up a variety of organs, glands and systems all of which are interdependent on each other. Your whole body is literally designed to do its part to make sure you are on your game 100% of the time. Stress sabotages your immune system because it creates an acid pH in your body; pH is the measure of alkaline (like baking soda) and acid (like vinegar). Our body typically is an acid state because the bi-product of muscle metabolism is lactic acid. Continuous relentless stress means a lower or an acid pH which depletes minerals and vitamins and therefore needs to be balanced.
For example, calcium is needed to literally “glue” cell membranes together protecting the body from foreign invaders like viruses. When you have deficient calcium the cells are vulnerable and the membrane junctions are easily penetrated. People who have anything from the “flu” to walking or “viral” pneumonia tend to be under stress and/or may be blood Type A which historically have poor digestion and lack of calcium.
Have you noticed that the “flu” season starts right now? The season starts with “trick-or-treat” night which actually starts “sugar season” and will end around the Easter holiday. Sugar compromises the immune system by depleting minerals in the body, which are needed to fuel the warrior cells.
We use several products in the office to help you create a foundation and base for optimal function. You want to avoid stress as much as you possibly can. I would strongly encourage you to eat vegetables, which tend to help you maintain a “healthier” alkaline state for the purpose of keeping the acid under control.
The immune system can be compromised from the micro-trauma of daily living; lack of sleep, too many commitments and not enough time, processed food, toxic water, stress and genetically engineered food. It wise to take care of the immune system before it is near exhaustion I would recommend:
- Bio-Immunozyme Forte™; 3 daily supporting the entire system
- ADB5 Plus™; 4 daily to support adrenal function
- Bio B with C™; supporting cell and nervous system function
I would encourage you to be mindful of what you are also doing in the realm of sleep, food and beverage intake. Sleep is the time of rebuilding, worrying uses up vital minerals and vitamins, having a loaded “day planner” creates stress and the acid pH you want to avoid.
The weather for much of the US is fluctuating between temperatures that can be warm one day, and then cold the next. If your immune system is not functioning at an optimal level, your body can be vulnerable to sickness. This month at both of our practices, our goal is to help build up your immune system, especially since there will be traveling, and the prior-mentioned weather changes. One of the products we recommend because we have seen the results first-hand is Gaia Herbs' Rapid Immune Response (Product Info below). It's good to have a bottle (or two) on your shelf and begin to take two an hour when you first feel symptoms of a cold until it's gone. Also, we are offering it for 10% off in our practices only.
October is recognized as Non-GMO Awareness month, and the word "GMO" might be a new phrase and concept for you, but we are now seeing the effects of eating GMO-based foods at our practice. In this "Get to Know", Dr. Bob shares what a GMO is, how it affects your health, and how to educate yourself on whether you know the food you eat is derived from a GMO seed or not.
At our practice we specialize in certain technological services that are exclusive in our region. One of these being our Motion X-Ray tool. Dr. Anthony shows us how we use the device to help make precise adjustments while helping you achieve health restoration. For more information, please contact our chiropractic office in Westlake or Elyria.
