CHIROPRACTIC WELLNESS CARE
The purpose of chiropractic care is to optimize the function of the nervous system, which controls the function of every cell, tissue and organ in the body. Over time, we experience physical, chemical and emotional stressors, which disrupt this network and cause vertebrae to become misaligned. When these “subluxations” occur, our bodies can’t adapt, heal or perform at their best.
Most people think that if they’re not hurting, then their bodies are fine. Actually, only 10% of the nervous system perceives pain, and it’s almost always the last indicator of more serious health problems. Good health is about function, and when our nervous systems aren’t working properly, it can cause devastating effects.
Corrective chiropractic care provides true healing without drugs or surgery. Our techniques are safe enough for pregnant women; babies and children; retirees; and those who face significant health challenges. Olympic athletes also favor this type of care, because it enhances performance, prevents illness, and provides a faster way to recover from injuries.
At VITAL CLINIC Chiropractic Wellness Care, we believe there are five essentials to wellness. These are: maximized mind; maximized nervous supply; maximized nutrition and supplementation; maximized lean muscle and oxygenation through proper exercise; and minimization of toxins. By educating our patients and providing the best corrective care possible, we transform lives and help promote true wellness from within.
There are over 200 types of chiropractic adjustments.
THE 3HEALTH ESSENTIALS OF VITALIZED WELLNESS LIVING
Without any of these Essentials, you are unable to live a long, healthy and fulfilled life that you are meant to live that essential work together to keep your cells in optimal function of its highest levels. If you only focus on one of these essentials, such as exercise, you are leaving out other core elements that keep your body healthy.
While each of the 3 Essentials may make sense to you at a high level, there are many things that you may not know. Get to know each of the following essentials and understand how they all work together and need to be practiced from the moment you wake up until the time you go to sleep each night.
1. EMOTIONAL ADJUSTMENT
ESSENTIAL 1: VITALIZED MIND
A Vitalized Mind encompasses areas such as time and stress management, improving your relationships with others, and making sure that you get adequate amounts of sleep. Working on all of these area's help to improve a negative attitude and help your overall peace and well-being from within yourself. The right, renewed mindset about life and health are necessary in order to commit to following any lifestyle plan.
Understanding the true principles of health and healing, and creating a mindset of success.
Changing your vantage point will help you begin to see life more clearly and handle stress much differently than before. There are several techniques and strategies to help you eliminate the negative aspects of your thinking and facilitate lasting, positive changes in your life.
Overcoming Limiting Beliefs
Your beliefs have been programmed in you throughout your life. Limiting beliefs are those that hold you back from achieving what you want in life. Think of them as roadblocks: false ideas that you have about yourself that make progressing harder than it needs to be.
Have you ever wondered why you want to change but found yourself reverting to your old habits?
Wonder why this happened? Maybe it wasn’t laziness or a lack of discipline. Maybe it was a limiting belief, a roadblock. The answer to your problem isn’t starting another gimmick, fad diet or self-help program. You need to find out your limiting beliefs and overcome them.
Examples of Limiting Beliefs:
“I can’t afford to eat that way.”
You will act in accordance with your belief system whether it is true or not. The key is to find what beliefs you have about yourself that are creating interference between where you are and where you want to be, and eliminating them. Beliefs are often in blind spots, meaning you don’t even know you have them. Through advanced workshops and questionnaires at our office, you be able to identify these beliefs and revolutionize your mind. The only thing you should believe is that anything is possible.
Positive Self Talk
How are beliefs formed? They are formed by the way in which you think. This is called self-talk. Self-talk is the internal conversation that you have with yourself all day long. Your subconscious records this conversation without putting up an argument, so if you tell yourself that you are fat all day, your subconscious will believe that you are fat.
So if you are what you say you are, then say it positively! Your beliefs about yourself can be reprogrammed through consistent, positive affirmations. Below are the criteria for writing these affirmations:
• “I thrive on my daily jogging because I feel healthy, strong and energetic.”
Once you have written your affirmations, it is important to repeat them daily. Over time you will replace old habits and beliefs and become who and what you want to be.
The Big Why
Everybody needs to know why. Why do I want to change? What is my motivation? Looking good isn’t a big enough reason, but staying healthy to spend more time with your children is. To find your big why, you must search your heart and mind to come up with the most compelling reason that you can for taking control of your life and health. When you have your big why, remember to repeat it daily along with your affirmations in order to cement it into your belief system. Remember these Max Mind principles and you will believe that success is just around the corner.
2. PHYSICAL ADJUSTMENT
ESSENTIAL 2: VITALIZED NERVE SUPPLY
Nerve supply is the life supply to all cells, organs, and systems in the body and so is responsible for all function and healing. Improper spinal alignment is common and likely to happen due to the amount of physical, emotional, and chemical stress you apply to your body every day so must be addressed as the foundational part of living at your health potential.
In order to maximize nerve supply, it requires spinal correction. Our health depends most on the stability and performance of our central nervous system. Thinking of this significant and intricate system intertwined within our body as a power supply of life, we are able to visibly see the significance of keeping our spinal cord and nerves in optimal shape. The second essential to Maximized Living is concerned with maximizing nerve supply in order to maximize the power supply of life within your body!
The brain is effectively the first organ to develop while in the mother’s womb. Our brain is the main command center for the rest of our body, and uses our spinal cord and nerves from the beginning to create every cell and organ. From development onto death, this command center is in charge of the flow of "power" along the spine and through the nervous system, controlling all function and healing within the body. Therefore, attaining overall health and wellness is directly associated to maximizing your nerve supply.
The nervous system is so essential to your body that it is covered within a well-built, bony structure to keep damaging elements away from the sensitive nerves. This bony structure consists of the skull, which guards the upper brain, and the spinal column, which shelters the spinal cord and nerve roots. When this spinal column is not well taken care of, it may shift or rotate out of place, interfering with your body's ability to create maximum nerve supply. The condition of your spine then influences both your physical and mental health--making it essential to optimal performance. Developments in modern medicine have allowed chiropractors the capability to make defined measurements of the spine, giving them the resources to make precise measurement of both the damage done to your spine and nervous system, as well as the accurate recommendations for care.
The benefits of full spinal correction are not just pain relief, but also greater neurological health, maximized organ function, prevention of spinal degeneration, optimum range of motion, high performance, and a far greater resistance to injury.
2-1. POSTURE/ ENDURANCE ADJUSTMENT
ESSENTIAL 2-1: VITALIZED OXYGEN AND LEAN MUSCLE
Exercise allows your body to take in higher levels of oxygen and creates lean muscle that keeps both your body and mind healthy. Studies have shown that exercise consistently match or exceed the benefits of antidepressants. This is your opportunity to decrease fat and increase lean muscle tissue.
Cutting edge exercise programs that work to facilitate optimum fitness in minimal time.
The best method for intake, usage and storage of oxygen is through movement and the best method for movement is exercise!
Oxygen is one of the most essential elements that you need to intake for survival. If you take in low levels of oxygen, you enable your body to accumulate toxins, develop disease and possibly cause early cell death. Exercise optimizes your oxygen intake and helps your body to produce muscle. Many poor health conditions, symptoms, of illnesses and diseases are caused by a body with a low-muscle-to-high-fat ratio. While there is a minimum level of fat that each of us needs in order to stay healthy, the more muscle and the less extra fat that you have, the healthier you are.
Research done on both elite and novice athletes show that the benefits of low-intensity, long duration activity are far outweighed by the benefits of high-intensity, short -duration exercise. This type of exercise actually increases your human growth hormone, testosterone and beta endorphins, thus turning your body into a muscle-building, fat-burning machine. Maximized Living has created a system in which you can achieve your peak fitness using these principles in the fastest and most effective way possible. We call it VitalT3.
VitalT3 is based on the most cutting-edge exercise science. This exercise system elicits a very unique hormonal response in the body and ultimately it is your hormones that influence your metabolism. This type of exercise is called “metabolic conditioning.” Metabolic conditioning is characterized by short bursts of high intensity exercise. Therefore, in just minutes a day you can build muscle and burn fat like never before. Twelve minutes a day is all it takes to get in the shape of your life.
The second component of the VitalT3 program addresses your body’s multitude of energy systems. To keep it simple, the speed at which you move determines what energy system you are focused on and which muscle fibers you are activating. The VitalT3 system influences oxygen and muscle in a very specific manner to get the greatest results in the shortest amount of time.
Furthermore, VitalT3 is a functional fitness program which means that it incorporates multi-joint, compound, whole body movements that are found in everyday activities. This is a get fit for life program. In addition, VitalT3 incorporates all the essential characteristics of fitness including power, strength, endurance, balance, coordination, flexibility, speed and agility.
Get Your Life Back
Many people get the wrong idea about exercise and fitness. Believe it or not, we don't have to dread it. Fitness can be fun. We don't have to let it consume all of our time. Fitness can be quick. Most of all, we don't have to let fitness be unachievable. It's our right to be healthy, so kiss those barriers goodbye. Using Maximized Living as a catalyst for change, and programs such as VitalT3, you can achieve the results you dream of get back to living the life that you want to live.
3. CHEMICAL ADJUSTMENT
ESSENTIAL 3: VITALIZED QUALITY NUTRITION
What you put into your body affects how you feel each and every day. Food is the fuel that your body needs to continue to power and heal itself on a daily basis. Diets that are high in carbohydrates, have pH or omega-3 imbalances or are nutrient deficient, have negative effects not only on your body, but can create a lot of symptoms such as depression, brain fog, stress and fatigue.
The food we eat fuels the trillions of cells that control our heart beat, our oxygen intake, our digestive tract, and every other complex process of our body. What exactly can we do to make sure our body's life supply is running on high? We must maximize the quality of the nutrients we consume!
Fuel Your Body the Right Way
Unfortunately, most Americans run their bodies on convenient, processed, and chemical laden foods. Due to the fast paced world we live in, many consumers feel it is easier to visit their local McDonalds or Burger King than to shop and cook. The bad news is that it comes at a price. Our bodies were not created to run off of French fries and Krispy Kreme donuts, and this new diet of convenience is posing a serious threat to healthy cell life.
Essentially, we are what we ingest, and the sugary colas, coffee drinks, and artificial "juices" are causing just as much distress on our bodies as the fast food down the street. Dousing your organs and cells with these beverages and other processed foods does not allow them to properly function and attain optimal performance. If a fish cannot survive in a bowl filled with those types of beverages, what makes you think your cells can?
Eliminating or reducing processed foods and replacing them with whole foods rich in nutrients is one way to ensure cell performance and survival. Essential #3: Vitalized Quality Nutrition is not about fad diets that don’t work. Rather, it is a sustainable way to eat for a lifetime of optimal health.
Vitalized Living promotes foods based on tried and true principles of healthy eating that are centuries old. It’s simple: if it is natural, eat it. If it's not, stay away from it. This really helps cut through all the "noise" in the world when it comes to nutrition. To maximize your potential, become educated on what you're putting in your body!
Many people recognize that these statements make sense yet are unsure how to translate it to their own lives. Vitalized Living has nutrition plans and resources that are very simple to implement. Once you know why certain foods are good and others are not, it is easier to make great food choices. Here’s the best news of all, this is NOT a diet, there are no points or calories to count, there is no starving, and there are no pre-made meals.

We are here to support you, offer you resources, and keep you accountable in your journey to better health.
Glutathione: the Body’s Natural Security System
Glutathione is a small, antioxidant molecule that is naturally produced by inside cells of the body. This important natural antioxidant can detoxify by neutralizing excess free radicals: unstable atoms in our body.
Free radicals are naturally occurring and useful for many bodily functions, such as digestion, but pollutants in our everyday environment promote an unhealthy supply of them. Excess free radicals are linked to disease, early aging and a reduction of oxygen supply in our cells.
These harmful effects are curbed by antioxidants, and glutathione is a natural antioxidant produced and required by the body. Insufficient levels of glutathione have been linked to cancer, AIDS and other serious diseases, as well as autism. In fact, Dr. Boyd Haley (University of Kentucky) states that “In Autistic children, glutathione levels are less than half the normal levels.”
Luckily, eating right gives us the ability to produce glutathione at optimum levels! That is why a commitment to a proper nutritional diet is essential for wellness.
3-1. TOXINS ADJUSTMENT
ESSENTIAL 3-1: MINIMIZED TOXINS
Toxins and chemicals surround us in our everyday lives and are included in items such as medications, refined foods, household cleaners and the items we cook with! Each of these toxins affects our bodies in a negative way and inhibits us from functioning at optimal levels.
As consumers, we are constantly bombarded with commercials and brochures that describe to us all of the wonders of modern medicine, but the real wonder is that consumers don't question what drugs they are willingly putting into their bodies. It is the goal of Vitalized Living to help you acknowledge the constant invasion of toxic substances and poisonous build-up in your body. If you choose to ignore these toxins and continue to live blindly, it will be impossible to avoid the disease onslaught that this new millennium is providing - not preventing.
By minimizing your exposure to toxins, you are keeping your body free from the unknown risks that are associated with trying to cover up symptoms such as headaches, weight gain, nausea, and depression. The reality of toxicity is a very tangible danger. Between everyday household cleaning products, our own consumption of known carcinogens such as cigarettes and industries that use coal fired plants, our environment is a loaded toxic gun and our bodies are the target. Toxins wreak havoc on our bodies and also cause disease and suffering. Even when we choose to eat organically, there are still toxins lurking everywhere that mean us harm. A quality detoxification system is our best defense against the veritable arsenal of toxins in our environment.
Elevate your body’s level of glutathione to escort toxins out of the cells
Maximized Living’s Detox System is a simple two part system: Cell Detox and Body Detox. Cell Detox (Included in ML Detox System) contains powerful ingredients that work synergistically to raise your body’s natural antioxidant and detoxifier, glutathione, which helps your body to remove toxins from the body at a cellular level. Body Detox works hand in hand with Cell Detox to collect the toxins released by your body and safely and permanently removes them. Together these elements are designed to enhance your body’s natural detoxification system, and permanently remove accumulated toxins from your body.
A Toxic Environment: Our Response?
Being aware of these realities is the first step in preventing these toxins from causing harm in your own body. But what can we do to minimize our exposure and neutralize their effects?
