Chiropractic Improves Digestion in Over 70%!

By: Dr. Michael Norman

Millions of children and adults suffer from digestive pain and diseases.  Most people know at least one person in their family, school, job, or community who suffers from a digestive ailment.  The standard treatment for most of these disorders is pharmaceutical and they carry dangerous consequences .  In addition, these children and adults receive little to no informed education on these consequences as more and more drugs are heaped upon them, in a trial and error fashion, creating long-term damage to their bodies.  Drug companies design...


Chiropractic is Anti-Aging!

Posted: June 10, 2016
By: Dr. Michael Norman

While many people still believe that chiropractic care is only for people with bad backs or neck pain, modern research is growing about the true value of scientifically specific chiropractic adjustments.  This is one reason why millions of children under the age of 15 are adjusted every single week and infants and toddlers have received adjustments, throughout chiropractic's 120-year history, to increase immune function and overall health status, not to treat any symptom or condition.  Research is now showing us one more benefit of...


Chiropractic and the Immune System

Posted: June 3, 2016
By: Dr. Michael Norman

The spine plays an important role in achieving a high-functioning immune system.  The spine encompasses so much more than a complex set of hard bones that help a person stand up straight.  Many scientists now refer to the spine as the motor to the brain.  Researchers use the motor analogy because the input created by the movement of the spine transmits required nutrients for brain health. The brain controls all of the body's organs, including all cells and tissues of the immune system.  Research now proves that the health of the spine plays...


Please Get Your Newborn Babies Adjusted Today!

Posted: August 2, 2015
By: Dr Michael Norman

Lately, I have been adjusting many newborn babies at my office in the first days or weeks of life.  The results have been amazing and many babies are happier and many parents have been extremely grateful.  I share this because of the remarkably similar stories these families have told me upon consulting our office. It all seems to sound the same...shortly after birth... a constant, uncontrollable crying (sometimes  painful screaming) through a majority of the day, inability to sleep more than a couple of hours consecutively (for the entire...


Disneyland...Scientific Omissions and the Measles Vaccine

Posted: February 8, 2015
By: Dr Michael Norman

You may have noticed the recent media coverage regarding the measles cases that originated at Disneyland.  With nearly blanket media coverage, the medical community has tenaciously pounced upon this event to promote the effectiveness of the measles vaccine and to attack those parents who have exercised their free right by law to not expose their healthy children to this practice.  For me, it has been frustrating to see only one side of this debate presented to the public.  Even more frustrating, these media stories promoting the measles...


What Can Chiropractic Do For You?

Some people mistakenly believe that chiropractic is only for those in pain.  This is sad.  Chiropractic is great for pain relief but to simply stop there causes one to miss the true benefits of chiropractic.  My practice consists primarily of "wellness" practice members.  That is, practice members who are not experiencing any type of pain, but are choosing to reach and maintain their optimal potential (health or otherwise). The following is my top 10 list of some of the most common benefits a chiropractic practice member receives by having...


Keeping Ebola in Perspective

Posted: November 1, 2014
By: Dr Michael Norman

Several practice members have asked my opinion on the recent Ebola cases here in Dallas the last couple of months.  I would like to share what we have talked about.

The non-stop news coverage created a ridiculous hysteria.  Hysteria (and any ensuing government over reaction to it) will always create more harm than any virus could hope to. Fear and hysteria are also extremely profitable to many special interests.  Follow the money trail.  

Since first diagnosed in 1976, approximately 7000 people have died from Ebola.  This is primarily...


Are You Living Your Life As a Question Mark or An Exclamation Point?

Posted: October 28, 2014
By: Dr Michael Norman

I was speaking with a practice member today regarding the great improvement in posture she has experienced since starting chiropractic care.  We spoke about how her body posture use to assume the form of a question mark (ex. forward head posture, rounded shoulders, hunchback,etc.).  Today, I told her, her spine is looking great and she looks more like an exclamation point (ex. upright head, shoulders back, erect spine, etc.)  She also has noticed the difference and is feeling great.  

In fact, not only her spine and posture, but her...


Proper Spinal Alignment Eliminates Toxins!

Posted: June 22, 2014
By: Dr Michael Norman

Did you know our body has a natural inborn system of detox?  It is controlled by our nervous system as our Innate Intelligence (the body's inborn wisdom) determines which materials and toxins are no longer needed by the body and can pose harm to our body.  This process is called excretion and it is triggered within a healthy nervous system by neurological signals in our brain-body connection.

As one of the fastest routes of elimination in the human body, the skin has a vital role in excretion.  This is why children (and adults) may...


Spinal Surgery and The Big Lie...Do Not Take the Bait!

Posted: March 3, 2014
By: Dr Michael Norman

I recently had a new patient come into the office with neck and arm pain.  She told me she had just gone to the orthopedic surgeon a few days prior and he recommended neck surgery for her due to a "bulging disc."  After exam and x-rays, I found her to have a misalignment of a cervical vertebra (spinal subluxation) and started her on a chiropractic corrective plan.  She has done fantastic and her symptoms diminished within the first few adjustments.  She expressed anger to me regarding this orthopedic surgeon:  "Why did he lie to me?  Why...
