Chiropractic and cranial sacral therapies can be highly effective in correcting misalignments in the body. I love to keep things simple so let’s break it down. Just as I have said that if the gut isn’t working properly, the brain and immune system won’t work properly. The same is true here. If the body has a misalignment then everything from neurotransmitter, blood and oxygen flow may be off. In babies sever reflux, chronic ear infections and constipation can go away. Emotional responses to situations, ADHD symptoms, GI Issues, anxiety, tics, vision weaknesses (which can be misdiagnosed as a learning disability) and the list goes on…can all be improved and sometimes simply cured.
I have had experience with three different types of chiropractors. The first one is Joan Faulkner of Faulkner Physical Therapy in Wallingford, CT. Joan has been in this line of work for over 40 years and she has been a Godsend to so many families. She once told me that the reason that she got into cranial sacral was because her own experience with childbirth had been so traumatic to both her and her children. Childbirth can be traumatic for many. Did you know any child who was delivered with forceps should see someone to check for issues? I wish someone had told me this years ago! As for Joan, like all of the doctors on this site, she was searching outside the box for answers because it hit home. Joan’s therapy technique is very gentle. The first time I went there I was told to look at my son’s legs, which were completely out of whack. One leg was shorter than the other and the left foot hung to the side while the right foot was straight up. B the end of the appointment, she told me to look again and they were straight as can be. Does anything work efficiently when there are broken parts or misalignments? Why would we think our bodies would be any different?
We have also visited Dr. Zembrowski who works out of the Darien Center for Functional Medicine. He is a Chiropractic Neurologist who believes in the integrated approach to healing. He wants to see your body aligned but he also wants to make sure what you are putting into your body will support your optimal health. Dr. Zembrowski will be the first to tell you wheat, dairy and sugar are the root of all evil!
He treats a host of issues including ADHD, SPD, dyslexia, insomnia, panic attacks, anxiety, obesity, bed wetting, auto-immune disease and thyroid/hormonal imbalances. His practice is based on proven science that speaks to the fact that many of us have weaknesses on either the left or right side of the brain. If this is the case, there is a misalignment that needs to be addressed so that the body can work properly. He attacks these issues head on with diet, adjustments and strengthening the weak part of the brain (either the left or right frontal lobe). The reason that he is so passionate about healing people through an integrative approach is that he came close to death from cancer and rebuilt his body and immune system back into fighting shape. He wants to help other find optimal health. He has started an organization for people fighting cancer because he truly believes that you can defeat disease with healing the body and eating the right foods.
The third type is coming soon with a bio!
