Chiropractic makes the brain work better, pain relief is a side effect.

Take a minute to think about this.

If the brain and nervous system regulate all function in the body - which it does, and if pain is a useful signal from your body to you that something isn't quite right, which it is, then it stands to reason that the only way to create pain relief is to either make the brain and nervous system work better or to make the brain ignorant of the pain signal.

Drugs block the pain signal and thus keep the brain ignorant of the problem, allowing the problem to grow and express itself through other avenues.

Humans. Machines? The Chiropractic Holistic View

Hi everybody. I'm Sten Ekberg, Chiropractor at Alpharetta Chiropractic - Wellness For Life, and my mission and passion is to make a difference by helping raise the awareness about what health is. How the human body-mind-spirit works and interacts, and to help stop the insanity that is flooding the world today.

Happiness – Why Not?

As a chiropractor at Alpharetta Chiropractic - Wellness For Life practicing Neurologically Based Chiropractic, I feel very fortunate. Dealing in functional Neurology, I get to assist patients in reprogramming and tweaking their brain and nervous system, the very mechanism that expresses their humanity. We can take measurements before and after and understand that we have in effect improved people's quality of life and their health potential.

What is Stress - Actually?

There is a tremendous amount of information available today about the effects of stress. If you ask the average person if they are stressed, most people will be quick to tell you more than you wanted to know. But what is stress? What are the mechanisms and processes that make it a “bad” thing? Everyone seems aware that they feel bad during periods of stress; hands get cold, excessive sweat in the armpit, students get sick during finals week etc... But how is this all related, and how far reaching is stress?

How Stress Hurts You and Chiropractic Can Heal

Stress and health can be a very confusing topic. There are thousands of things to think about - Or are there? This article will start to break it down for you. It all boils down to a few basic principles. If you understand it, you don't have to memorize anything.

Alpharetta Chiropractic Can Measure Your Stress

In the news we can read every day about the detrimental effects of stress. It has been linked to virtually every degenerative disease process that we know of, from cancer, diabetes, and heart disease to fibromyalgia, neck pain, and head aches. Alpharetta Chiropractic understands quite clearly today that how your nervous system responds to stress may be the single most important factor in how healthy you will be.

Erectile Dysfunction, Low Back Pain and Kegel Exercises

To most people, those three factors would seem completely unrelated at first glance. As it turns out they are in fact very much related and by performing something called Kegel exercises you can actually reduce your risk for low back pain and at the same time improve the probability and quality of erections. Kegel exercises have long been recommended for improving sexual performance in both men and women, but rarely is there even an attempt to explain why it would make a difference. This article will take a look at the various components that would make that possible.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome - Fact, Fiction and How Chiropractic Can Fix It!

The term Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) was first applied as a diagnosis in 1939, but didn't become a house hold word until the 1990's when computer terminal work became common. That doesn't necessarily mean that the problem is primarily caused by computer or keyboard work, because the majority of cases are still observed in assembly type work.

How Much Fat is Bad?

The head line is actually misleading, but that's on purpose. It is the wrong question. What we really need to ask is; what kinds of fats are good or bad? Or - what makes something a high or low quality fat?

Neurons or Nerve Cells - The little guys that make YOU function


Before you back out and say - Oops, I clicked the wrong link. I'm probably not interested in them whatchamacallits, just take a second and ponder.

Everything about you is regulated and directed through neurons, (the cells that make up the brain and nervous system.)
