This week we welcome Kelly back from her freshman year at Georgetown University. She’ll be in during the afternoons and helping us with the summer’s health fairs and other events we’ll be at. Be sure to welcome her back when you come in, she is looking forward to seeing everyone again.
Next week is a short week as I am heading to Sherman College of Chiropractic to take some Continuing Education courses before the holiday weekend (Yes, it’s almost Memorial Day, can you believe it!?) Next week we’ll be open Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday morning and closed Wednesday afternoon through the holiday and returning again for regular hours on Tuesday, May 28.

Topic of the Month, May: Chiropractic and Genetics:
We all know that DNA is the code for life and that DNA provides a code for everything. What we need to also know is that the environment in which we grow up is as important as our DNA in determining the person you ultimately become. The environment turns genes on and off. So genes and DNA establish probability but not inevitability.
Think of genes like books in a library. There are many books to choose from but you’ll only get the information out of the ones you actually take off the shelf and read. The beauty is that you get to choose which book to pull off the shelf and which book’s information you get to apply.
A perfect example of this is alcoholism. EVERY human on the planet has a gene for alcohol(ism) expression. But you still have to consume an alcoholic beverage to “turn on” the gene and begin it’s expression.
Because your nerve system is the link between your inside (DNA) and outside world, it is imperative to maintain a healthy nerve function. When nerve function is interfered with genes can not express themselves properly and can mutate,. The Journal Neurobiology states “For all living cells, regulation of gene expression by extracellular neurological systems is a fundamental mechanism of development, homeostasis, and adaptation. The Neurological mechanisms that underlie the control of gene expression are becoming increasingly well understood. Every conceivable step in the genetic sequencing process is subject to dynamic regulation by the central nerve system.”
Be sure to maintain your weekly subluxation checks to reduce nerve interference and to receive your adjustments as necessary.
