My goal is to get you to understand than no matter what condition you can come
up with, getting your body functioning properly through removing irritation to
the brainstem and, thus, restoring the normal function of the body will be of
GREAT BENEFIT!!! Every healthcare professional will agree that addictions have
several components. Nearly all agree that it is a disorder of the brain. Others
will argue a behavioral and even spiritual component. I'm not one to deny any of
those. You may have heard people refer to those with addictions as people who
"aren't wired right." Well, consider that they are wired just fine, but that
their "wires" may not be sending the right messages. I've mentioned before that
the brain is essentially another organ under control of the brainstem. The
brainstem is formed before the brain, in utero. Babies are occasionally born
without a brain, but by having a brainstem they are able to survive for a period
The brain has several sections and dozens of sub-sections responsible for
millions of functions throughout the body. But it, essentially, still an organ.
Without the brainstem routing the brain's messages to the body, the brain is no
more than a major airport WITHOUT an air control tower. So, the brain sends
signals to the brainstem...and many of those messages (by many we're talking
trillions) are routed from one section or sub-section of the brain to another.
If there is a misalignment to one of the top two bones of your neck, placing a
stress on your brainstem that distorts those routed signals, it can be a major
hurdle for overcoming addictions. How would it NOT be a major hurdle in
overcoming addictions? While not a "cure" for addiction, Upper Cervical care is
necessary to remove the irritation to the brainstem that causes the distorted
signals from one part of the brain to another.
