Generations in the Clinic


Healthy Generations

One of the most satisfying things in my Chiropractic clinic is seeing several members of the same family come for treatment. This past few weeks I have had two or three retired men come to see me, and within a couple of treatments, they are coming back and saying that their wife would also like an appointment with me. That is always a good sign that I must be doing something right. Same generation.

Today I saw three generations of the same family. The first member to come was actually pregnant with the next generation when she came to see me. After giving birth, her son was brought to me for a check up, to see if his birth had caused any misalingments. To read more about how birth can cause a baby problems, please have a look at my website.

Today Grandma came in to see me for her first treatment. It was the first time in 17 years of being a Chiropractor that I had to do the questioning for the consultation and explanation via an interpeter, as Grandma is from Poland. She is over in the UK to help her daughter adjust back to work. To those of you who know me, you will wonder how I managed to get through a whole treatment without talking. It was strange to say the least, but the look of relief on her face was enough to know that despite not being able to verbally communicate, her pain was much diminished, and the hug was in a language that anybody could understand.

What do each generation in your family share, as a common ground?

Day 1 #GetAdjusted Movement

I want you to know why I do what I do. I want you to know what drives me. I want you to know why I am so motivated to make a difference in our community. #GetAdjusted

Do you know why you do what you do. Please share with me and my followers what drives you.

#Get Adjusted

Today is the first day of the #GetAdjusted Campaign, which aims to bring Chiropractic to the World.

Over the next 30 days I hope to bring you my answers to the 30 questions that the #Get Adjusted Movement poses.

Today’s question is Why do I do what I do?

I want you to know why I do what I do. I want you to know what drives me. I want you to know why I am so motivated to make a difference in our community. #GetAdjusted

I will be posting a video later on today, so I ask you to follow my blog, and come and learn what Chiropratic is really about. Those of us who still hold the vision that it is a health system that uses no drugs, no surgery and beleives that the body is a self healing organism.

How Good Does Your Body Feel?

How Good Does Your Body Feel?

Over 6,000 Chiroprators worldwide have signed up to the Movement. We are re-claiming the profession back to where it started.

Immunity is Everything

This week in the UK is Spinal Awareness Week, so I have spent the past few weeks either busy in my clinic, or busy on my clinic. I have been writing press releases, being asked to give interviews on radio for an upcoming event that I am facilitating, meeting with a marketing expert, updating my webshop and generally doing lots of creative stuff around my business.

Ayshire Post

Once the week is here I expect my telephone to be red hot, as all these press articles get people understanding what it is that I do, and ringing to make an appointment and get themselves checked out. Then after a few hectic weeks, I shall be taking a well earned rest, to go away somewhere sunny and write an e-book entitled

“How to Naturally Improve your Immune System”.

How does that grab you, is that something that you might be interested in getting your hands on? Absolutely Free, and for Nothing!

With the gloom and doom news in the UK, as a result of the General Election results last week, and the threat to our NHS, now might be the best time to learn to see if there is anything that we can do to enhance our immune system, and lessen the risk of succumbing to those opportunistic bugs that are everywhere.

If this is something that might interest you, then keep your eyes peeled and pop back soon, or even better still, follow my page and get regular updates as soon as they happen.

Happy Spinal Awareness Week.Poor computer posture

Liebster Award


I logged on to my blog this morning to a nomination for the leibster award from Luke at HeroHealthRoom. Thank you for that Luke. I recommend you go take a look at his site if you are at all interested in good health and how to achieve it. Pssst it needs working on, like all things that are good, it gets good by working hard at it. Bearing that in mind many of my nominated blogs are on that theme. I have also chosen some blogs for their visual appeal, take a look.

So the questions that Luke posed and my answers are:

Top 3 books that have impacted on my life.

OK first off I would have to say The Holy Bible! Of all the self-help books, how to live your life books etc, it was in the Bible first. If you don’t believe me, find me something that you have found somewhere else and I will give you a quote from it.

Second “Conversations with God” by Neale Donal Walsh. That may come as a surprise to many of you after my first choice, but it really had a HUGE impact on how I saw people and situations, it changed my view on things.

The third book to have impacted my life is the one I haven’t written yet!

Why do I blog?

Well first of all I started blogging in an effort to bring the wonderful proto-col products to a wider audience. I am passionate about the products, having been introduced to green magic 18 months ago. I then discovered the skin-care range, which for someone who has sensitive skin, was a God-send. After about 6 weeks I had just about exhausted all that I had to say, and stumbled upon a poem called “Gift from a Stranger” and a couple of days later the daily prompt was Mirror Mirror, so I wrote a poem in response to that post. I then found that the writing community in the blogosphere was amazingly supportive and from there began to write poems and short stories.

Aims for Next Week

To have signed up 10 Ambassadors to Proto-col! So if you want to work in the health and beauty industry, working from home, the hours that suit you, selling top quality products then please take a look at the website and get in touch with me. We might not have any representatives in your part of the world, but we are going global, so you could be heading up the entire team in your country. Check it out here

One Habit That You Are Proud Of and One I Would Like to Change

Taking my teaspoon of Green magic every morning. Too many to mention, but the ability to kill off houseplants.

Your Favourite Quote

There’s no “I” in Team. My team are amazing and we help each other out all the time.

What Scares You the Most

Nothing really, not spiders, nor snakes, nor flying. Since discovering EFT I have conquered a lot of my fears. “Drops” are probably the one thing that still scares me, you know like dropping on parachute drop type thing, although free-falling from an aeroplane does not scare me, it’s the dropping like a stone on a safety rope that does.

What Have I Learnt Today

Learnt what RT means in Twittersphere! And learning how to tweet in general @joyofhealth96

How Do You Keep Creative

I write. I started in January this year, so I am a beginner, but I have joined a Writer’s club, and am entering my poem “Rhythms of Abandonment” into their poetry competition tomorrow night, so fingers crossed. I have already had some feedback on it from the blogging community and from the club. I also go to a self-development group once a month.

1 Skill That You Have Always wanted to learn

Hmmm difficult because if there is something that I want to learn I tend to go off and learn it, but I guess it would have to be learn to be an excellent sales-person.

My Favourite way to Keep Healthy

Regular visits to my McTimoney Chiropractor, daily teaspoon of Green Magic, healthy eating, drinking plenty of water, yoga and pilates, and prayer. There is no 1 way, it is a combination of all those elements.
