Achieve A Higher Level of Health
We live our lives through our nervous system. Our body organs are well integrated into a control framework that is represented by coordinated neural and hormonal signals. The key component of this system is the circuitry of the autonomic nervous system, which regulates bodily functions that are not consciously directed. Historically, this system is divided into sympathetic and parasympathetic subdivisions – a yin and yang control mechanism for stress responses (fight or flight) and homeostasis (rest and digest), respectively. Everything you do in life, every breath you take, every sensation you experience, it's all perceived, received, and acted upon through your nervous system. It controls every function in your body from moving your arm, blinking your eyes, increasing or decreasing your blood pressure, and digesting your food. When something disturbs the flow of information that travels from your brain to your cells or from your cells back to your brain, your entire experience in life is diminished. It may appear in your life as low back pain, neck pain, headaches, digestive dysfunction, or lack of energy. It can also be present in your body without you ever being aware of its presence. All it takes is pressure on a nerve equal to the weight of a quarter to reduce that flow and cause drastic changes in your body that you are not even aware of.
When the nervous system is functioning properly, you feel better, function better, and perform better. Pain diminishes and goes away. Your body begins to operate at its optimal level, allowing you to achieve greater levels of health than you may have ever known. Things that you used to be able to do may become possible again. This is our focus at High Country Doctor clinics. We believe that everyone deserves to live life to its fullest potential. Instead of merely reducing your symptoms, we focus on getting to the cause of the problem and resolving it so that you can achieve your optimal level of health.
Most health care offices focus on the symptoms that a person has. We choose to focus on the person that has the symptom. Our consultations will address not only your current problems, but what you would like to achieve with your health. Our examination procedures aim at finding the cause of the problem so that it is corrected, and you can heal. We use advanced technology and traditional assessment techniques to painlessly and quickly evaluate your nervous system health so that you know what it will take to BE better, not just feel better.
