Helping Hands Chiropractic Center recognizes that no two individuals place the exact physical and mental demands on their bodies; nor do any two individuals ever present with exactly the same pattern underlying their symptoms. It is for this reason that Helping Hands Chiropractic Center does not take a “Shot-Gun” approach to treatment. Many issues are taken into consideration when developing your Personal Care Plan.

Helping Hands Chiropractic Center focuses on a goal-oriented road to recovery. Dr. Faas, Dr. Myhree and Dr. McChesney integrate our team of health care professionals in order to develop a customized plan of treatment for each patient’s specific needs. A very personalized set of goals will be discussed and established with each individual’s life style emphasized.

The Nervous System is the master system of the body, and every aspect of the human experience is processed through it. The Nervous System is made up of the brain, spinal cord and spinal nerves that both receive information from and send information out to all aspects of the body. When there is interference with the function of the Nervous System, dysfunction can occur.

Nerve interference can compromise your physical health and well-being. It can also have psycho-emotional manifestations as well – an impaired nervous system can distort your perception of the world and limit your ability to respond to your environment.

What I do as a Chiropractor is locate and correct the cause of that interference. I use a thorough examination, history, scan and palpation, to locate the interference, then low-force and wholistic techniques to clear it. My main objective is to clear your Nervous System so that your body can adapt and respond to stressors (whether physical, chemical, emotional, or spiritualin nature) and maximize your self-healing potential. I do not focus on symptoms or necessarily diagnose conditions, but what I find is that by clearing interference in your nervous system, symptoms and conditions diminish.

I specialize in gentle low-force techniques, which address the body in a wholistic manner. I use Network Spinal Analysis (NSA) and Bio-Geometric Integration (BGI) to address tension/interference in the spinal cord itself, Neuro-Emotional Technique to specifically access the emotional components of nerve interference; and Activator to gently make structural corrections.

Helping you return to a natural state of good, healthy living.

Chiropractic care is based on the scientific fact that your body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism. These important functions are controlled by the brain, spinal cord, and all the nerves of the body.

Chiropractic is a natural method of health care based on restoring proper function and maintaining the health of the spine and nervous system. The stress of modern-day life, poor diet, inadequate exercise, and accidents can lead to many spinal disorders. If the spine and nervous system are properly maintained, the body will function at its optimum capacity, and be free from pain and fatigue.

Natural Strategies For Cancer Patients [Paperback]
Russell Blaylock M.D. (Author)

When someone’s diagnosed with cancer they need an immediate game plan to fight the disease, especially once the oncologist prescribes a course of treatment of chemotherapy and/or radiation. Oftentimes these treatments have dangerous consequences. Current international research shows without a strong nutritional foundation, a patient’s odds of surviving these treatments-let alone beating cancer-are greatly reduced. However, patients receiving the proper balance of healthy foods, vitamins and minerals, and selected nutritional supplements show a striking increase in the effectiveness of their chemotherapy and radiation treatments.

Cancer and current cancer treatments wage war on the body, but Russell L. Blaylock, M.D. – a respected doctor and clinical assistant professor of neurosurgery – has developed an easy-to-follow program to fight back naturally. “Natural Strategies for Cancer Patients” shows how easy it can be to fortify nutritional status during this critical time. Patients can learn: which everyday foods have uncommon cancer-fighting properties and how best to prepare them; which supplements can help-or hurt-their chances; how certain fats and oils enhance their body’s natural defences; the exciting promise of plant chemicals called flavonoids, which enhance the effectiveness of chemotherapy while adding a significant layer of protection to healthy cells; and much more.
