Good Afternoon,…

Good Afternoon,

In our last article we talked about our mission with this practice and the three keys that we feel are important in good care to our patients.

If you missed that article, you can read it here:

Today I want to talk about why it is so important to follow the 14 keys to maximizing energy and minimizing stress.

The truth is, the way that we do things in our society is not working.

Here are a few stats to prove it:

21% of all Americans age 18-65 are on 3 or more meds 11% of all Americans age 18-65 are on 5 or more meds 52% of ALL WOMEN are on at least one medication 25% of all Children are on at least 1 medication 90% of all seniors are on at least 1 medication 65% of all seniors are on at least 3 medications 37% of all seniors are on at least 5 medications

According to the world health organization we make up only 5% of the worlds population and yet we consume 47% of all medicationused world wide, and we are actually ranked 50th in the world in overall health!

France is rated number 1 and we actually spend 4 times more on health care. 

Now here is the kicker…with all of this money being spent and all of these medications being consumed, you would think that we were getting somewhere with the fight against disease, right?  Wrong…can any of you name one disease that has been irradicated by medicine since 1960?

So what is the answer?  Well, in my opinion we do not need better medicines, we need better Doctors!  We need doctors that are manage the whole person, not just the part of the person that is having symptoms….we need Doctors that go after the cause!

That is what we strive to do here in the office, we use objective measurements that evaluate you as a whole person, everything from detailed comprehensive neurological exams, surface emg and electromyography tests, blood work, saliva testing, stool testing, urine testing, hair analysis….in other words, we dont guess, we test!

This is what we do in our office, it is our goal to drive your body to true health which is 100% funtion of 100% of your body 100% of the time.  Some of you may be able to get there, some of you may have problems too severe to get all the way to 100% function…but what I can promise you is that I will do everything in my power to help you acheive as close to 100% health as I possibly can!

If you are a new patient or an existing patient and would like us to dig deeper into your body’s health and function…and reinvent your life… call the office and tell Teresa you would like the “Complete Neuro/Metabolic Evaluation.”

In our next article we will get into the actual 14 keys to maximizing your energy and reducing your stress.

Keep an eye on your in box.

Have a great day,

Dr. Price


14 Keys to Maximize Energy and Reduce Stress- Part 1

Good Afternoon,

I have been putting together information for a new report/book that I am writing and I have compiled some very surprising data that I want to share with you.

Did you know:

The average person lives to be 78 years of age in America, this comes out to be 4,056 weeks

How much longer do you have?  Take you age and subtract it from 78.  Once you have that number, multiply it by 52.  That is how many weeks you have left to live.

So for myself for example, I am 41 years old so I would subtract 41 from 78 to get 37years.  Multiply 37 years by 52 weeks in a year and I have 1924 weeks left to live.

Man, that gives me a little more sense of urgency about enjoying life!

How about you, what is your number?  Does that give you a different perspective on the value of time?

Well, here is the secret…you and God are the ones that control that number! How do you control that number?

By the thoughts you hold in your mind, by the words you speak, and by the actions you take.  And you control all three of those.

Your decisions, words, thoughts and actions either lengthen this number or shorten this number.

Think about this….every thought, decision, and word you have controlled over the last 20 years have gotten you to this point.  What is your life going to look like 20 years from now? 

Well, that is why we are here in our practice…to help you increase your number and help your next 20 years be better than your last 20 years!

I want to help you reinvent your life by teaching you the strategies to live up to your God given talent.  This is mission number one in my office.

Mission number 2 is to have maximum positive impact on every person that I come in contact with, and mission number 3 is to provide you with an exit strategy…to teach you what you need to know to live your life free of doctors and health issues…to live your life on your terms and up to your God given potential.

This is what the next several articles will be about….so keep an eye on your in box…

Talk with you soon,

Dr. Price

Dr. Price- Fort Walton Beach Chiropractor Discusses HRT

Good Afternoon Everyone,

Everyone always says that we Chiropractors are crazy because we keep on saying that it is not safe to change the body’s normal functions through medication, whether over the counter or perscription.

Here is a recent study from the University of Copenhagen that you may find interesting:

“Birth control pills are already known to rais women’s risk of developing serious blood clots, but nonoral hormonal contraceptives such as patches and vaginal rings carry an even greater risk.

Researchers analyzed data from more than 1.6 million healthy women and found that those who took the pill had triple the clot risk than those who used no hormonal birth control.  But women who used skin patches had a whopping eight times the risk, while those who used vaginal rings had a 6.5 increased risk.”

Again, this was according to a University of Copenhagen study.

Dr. Price’s comments:

We all know the dangers of using hormonal birth control.  Over the last couple of years we have become aware of the increased cancer risks of hormone replacement therapies.  Well be warned, the new “trend” is bioidenticla hormone replacement therapy.

This therapy is very popular right now…but I truly believe, again, that not addressing the cause of the problem in the body, and using external sources to treat the symptom will cause more imbalance and greater dysfunction in the body for those who utilize this therapy long term.  It may take 10 – 20 years for the medical establishment to “discover” these dangers, but it will happen.

What is the better option?  To get tested, see where your body is malfunctioning, and treat the body neurologically and metabolically to restore function…then let the body function on its own.  This is true healing…not merely the treatmentof symptoms.

Everyone have a great Tuesday!

Dr. Price
