Q: How long does it take for me to start seeing results?

..

A: Most of our clients begin to see results in the first 30-45 days as their initial symptoms of pain begin to improve. Deeper levels of healing such as changes on blood work and urine samples take a longer time to show changes.





Q: What happens after the initial 30-45 days? How does the process work?

A: ICHS offers care on three levels. An introductory series of visits is geared to help you begin to improve symptoms. You will need to be seen either two times a week, or in very severe cases, three times per week. On this level, we focus on balancing the spinal column and extremities, and on relaxing the spinal nerves to allow them to flow freely from the brain into the entire body, organs and glands without any interference. It has been compared to opening a circuit breaker to the electricity of your home. This is a major component in restoring your body to optimum health.

The second level of care will focus on restoring health through enhanced nutrition. By evaluating your nutritional needs through Applied Kinesiology and blood and urine samples, your body will begin to undergo changes on a cellular level, and when the tissues and cells of the body are supplied with the proper nutrition, and then the adjustments work a whole lot better.
In the third level of care, we focus on maintenance and education. People come in on an as needed basis, sometimes once a month. It’s like going to the dentist for a cleaning to make sure there are no cavities. This is the peak of preventative health care. You don’t want to go to the dentist only when you need a root canal. So it is with other areas of your health. Don’t wait until you are bent over in pain to take care of your spine organs and nervous system. 




Q: Do you take insurance?

A: Chiropractic care is covered by many insurance companies to help you get out of pain. This is what level 1 is all about. Once your pain has improved, the responsibility is upon you to pay for your care. In essence, if you really want to free yourself from dis-ease and feel your best, it is your responsibility. No one else is going to take care of you. 




Q: Can I stay on my present medications?

A: Yes. In fact, we advocate that you do. However, as your health improves, we suggest that you work closely with you medical Dr. to monitor your medications, and if it is indicated, lower the dosage until you no longer need that medication. Based on how chronic and severe the problem is, some medications can not be reduced.

Q: Can I use my current Primary Doctor?


A: Yes.




Q: I have a General Primary Doctor, a Dentist, and a specialist. What can I hope to accomplish with your services?

A: If your current methods are accomplishing all of your health related needs, then of course you have created an optimal system for yourself. In our experience, many people are not experiencing the results they would like to have, and quite truthfully, their health is failing. We recognize that there is a cause for this failure, and work together with you to determine why your body is not reaching for better levels of health and well being. If you take the time to be involved in all aspects of your health, you will feel more in control of your life. You could continue to utilize your Doctor, dentist and specialist, but as you begin to overcome your present dis-ease state, you’ll be more equipped to make effective choices regarding your own health care.
