My Mission to Change the Health of my Community in Minnesota
Here’s something you might not know about me. What I am about to share with you literally changed the course of my life.
What started as chronic shoulder tension, turned into neck pain. Then that neck pain started causing shooting pain into my head. I was going to one chiropractor after another. I was popping migraine medication - so much that I had a Costco-sized bottle of excedrine migraine at work and at home. One day while sitting at my desk at work where the shooting pain in my head became so intense that my meds wouldn’t touch it. I couldn’t get into my chiropractor. I couldn’t stand looking at my work computer. The only thing I wanted to do was curl up in my bed, and fall asleep. I took a sick day, and as I was driving home my vision started blacking out on my right and left side. I could only see a small tunnel in front of me. That day I went to sleep it off for a few hours, but still woke up with the after headache. Over the next few weeks and months, my migraines became more intense and would last days.
They became so bad that I even ended up in the ER not once, but twice in the same 24 hour period because I had woken up with so much pain that I couldn’t breathe. They gave me more meds….and had no idea what else to do because every test, lab work, EKG, chest and neck x-ray came up normal in their view.
Literally I tried everything and nothing was working to fix my migraines.
Thank God I was referred to a chiropractor that specializes in structural correction. He took a full set of x-rays of my spine - head, neck, and back. Within a few seconds of looking at my x-rays, he said that’s it. There’s your problem. Of course, after struggling to find the answers to my migraines between all the doctors, do you think I believed him? Nope, I was skeptical. What I didn’t understand at the time, was that you were supposed to have a 45 degree curve in your neck and your head/occiput was supposed to be angled up at 18 degrees. Instead, I had a -10 degree curve and my head was angled at 42 degrees compressing the brainstem causing my migraines, compressing the brainstem and nerves along my neck and upper back causing all my neck and upper back pain and tension. I started getting adjusted that day, then started going multiple visits a week, to eventually going down to once a week to every other week. My migraines were gone. I gave a 6 month notice at my job to go back to chiropractic school. I have been migraine free with consistent corrective chiropractic for over 12 years.
Now, I am on a new mission to help every person that is struggling physically, mentally, emotionally. That have been told that they were not going to get better because there is nothing wrong with them. Because I know that each and every one of you has big dreams. I believe that each and every one of you was born to change this world. But statistics show that 1 out of every 2 of us will have our dreams go to the grave because of a chronic degenerative disease. If it is not you, it is the person next to you that will have their dream die due to a chronic disease. Hippocrates said look well to the spine for the cause of disease. He did not say look to drugs, a medical device, to a surgery. Find the cause and fix the cause, and you too will see your dream. This world deserves to see your dream.
