For over 30 years, my work has been focused on prevention. I enjoy it because I make a difference in people’s lives and I help people avoid a crisis by restoring their health.
Everyone appreciates that doctors can save their life, but not everyone appreciates that doctors can help them to avoid a crisis. That is OK, this world is big enough to hold all kinds.
We are programmed to call a doctor when we have symptoms such as a headache, insomnia, palpitation, dizziness, lightheaded, sinus issue, stomach issue, etc. If we take time to think for a moment, we may realize our symptoms could be unintentionally caused by our own doing.
We work too hard often without appropriate self-care. Especially in our media driven world, we work either in front of a computer screen, work with our phone, or tablet. In addition, we constantly hold our tension in which causes a “Traffic Jam” in our energy pathways and circulation pathways.
After working at the computer for so many hours, we can feel our head is just about to explode. This is a sign of an imbalanced body and brain.
One of the most common problems I have dealt with patients in the past is neck problems.
Patients come to me and may not mention their neck, but allude to other symptoms such as emotional issues, headaches, insomnia, dizziness, palpitations, heart burn, sinus problems, shoulder problems and chest pain, They say the doctor told them these issues are normal (from tests).
But once I tell them they have a neck problem, they are surprised “Yes, my neck is always tight,” and then they ask me “Why didn’t the doctor tell me?”
Many neck problems are not discovered by doctors or X-Rays unless you have a structural problem. Many medical practitioners don’t even touch your neck or cannot identify minor neck problems.
Therefore, even after a minor to moderate car accident, a doctor will tell you that you are fine (from X-Ray). But you are really not fine because many of the symptoms come later. This is why I want to share with you how important it is to take care of your neck.
First let’s better understand your neck:
The neck is a very important area as it is the pathway that connects your head (that contains your brain), and your torso (that contains your organ systems). As you see, the neck is in the middle of the two most important parts of the body.
The neck contains blood vessels from the heart to the brain, neck and face. The neck also contain nerves in which numerous branches supply structures in the head, neck, face, back, shoulders, thyroid, and the diaphragm.
The neck also contains critical structures: part of the esophagus, larynx, trachea, thyroid and parathyroid glands, lymph nodes, and the first part of the spinal cord. It also includes the carotid arteries, the jugular veins, and cervical lymph nodes, which doctors palpitate it to identify infection or cancer.
