Q: How long does it take for me to start seeing
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.
What happens after the initial 30-45 days? How does the
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.
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?
I have a General Primary Doctor, a Dentist, and a
specialist. What can I hope to accomplish with your
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.
