It’s Spring, so why am I not happy?

Is This Depression?

It’s spring – everything is growing, the weather is warming up, so why am I not feeling any spring in my step?

Am I depressed?

You are not alone. Depression is a real disease. Just like a broken bone or an infection, sometimes we get sick or hurt and need help.

If you or a loved one are experiencing some of these symptoms, it may be some form of depression:

  • Lethargy, tired all the time
  • Body aching
  • Bad mood, irritable, angry
  • Sad, crying
  • Anxious, nervous
  • Not interested in anything
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Poor sleep, Insomnia
  • Or sleeping a lot
  • Weight gain or loss

Maybe it started with a dramatic life change.  A new baby in the family, a divorce, the death of a loved one, a traumatic accident. The causes for depression are many. There may be food sensitivities. Perhaps the brain isn’t producing the feel good hormones, like serotonin or dopamine. ---read more--->

Dancing Helps Heart Health and Brain Power

dance to music fiddleI learned to dance before I could walk. When I was a baby, every auntie in the family took a turn swaying around Grandma’s kitchen with me. The dancing got more complicated as I got older. Square dancing was a required for graduating from elementary school, and best of all, my Great-Grandma taught me to dance the Charleston, legs kicking, arms pumping.

“Don’t tell anyone,” she said. “They think it’s bad for my heart.”

On the contrary, dancing was great for her heart, and even better for her brain! Some kinesthetic memories remain when other memories fade, and dancing together can be a way of reclaiming connections. Great-Grandma Jean had dated a band leader, and she remembered removing her high-heeled slippers and dancing in the sand. She taught me the dance steps, and when she did the Charleston she felt again what it meant to feel truly free. In that moment, age meant nothing. ---read more--->

Toxic Cleaners EWG Research

“Will burn skin and eyes.”

“Will penetrate skin and attack underlying tissues and bone.”

“Suspected of damaging the unborn child.”

You’d expect to see these warnings on a barrel of hazardous waste. In fact, they’re in the fine print of labels of everyday household cleaners or on their websites and obscure technical disclosures.

In a ground-breaking initiative to uncover the truth about toxic chemicals in common household products, the Environmental Working Group has unearthed compelling evidence that hundreds of cleaners, even some of those hyped as “green” or “natural,” can inflict serious harm on unwary users.

Explore The Whole Picture of Health

The food you eat plays a critical role in your health & happiness, but primary food truly nourishes you & makes your life extraordinary.
  • We have a philosophy about food – everything we consider a source of nutrition is really just a secondary source of nourishment, The foods you eat are secondary to all other aspects of life that feed you. We call these parts of life primary food.
  • Healthy relationships, regular physical activity, a fulfilling career and a spiritual practice can fill your soul and satisfy your hunger for life. When primary food is balanced and satiating, your life feed you, making what you eat secondary. Food can fill you but it cannot fulfill you.
  • For example, many people spend hours each day watching television and surfing the Internet. You can eat all the broccoli and brown rice in the world, but if you are isolated and lonely, you won’t be living life to the fullest. We are fed not only by food, but also by the energy in our lives.
  • We take in the experience of life in thousands of ways. We hunger for play, fun, touch, romance, intimacy, love, success, art, music, adventure, and spirit, All of these are essential forms of nourishment. Everything is food.
Look at the four main components of primary food:


      – Relationships

      – Career

      – Physical Activity

      – Spirituality


Give each one a rating from 1-10 as you see them in your life right now. Start to build more awareness about primary food in your life.

The quality of relationships with friends, family and coworkers can explain a lot about the quality of a person’s life. So cultivate relationships that are healthy and supportive to you. Start to notice what relationships truly feed you in your life and which relationships drain your energy
Most people spend 8-10 hours a day, 5 days a week at work. that adds up! Are you passionate about your job and do you love the people you work with? If not, chances are that it takes a toll on your health. Finding work you love is essential to living a healthy, balanced life.
Some people follow the spiritual path their parents grew up with, while others explore new traditions. Almost all forms of spiritual practice come down to one thing: the more we bring our individual lives into alignment with the whole of existence, the more we feel nourished and at peace.
Physical Activity
Our bodies thrive on movement and quickly degenerate without it. Exercise can take simple and modest forms, like getting off the subway or bus stop one stop earlier and walking further to your destination. Making physical activity a simple, daily habit greatly increases your health and happiness.  

Is Toxicity Causing Your Chronic Pain?

Medications for chronic pain, anti-inflammatory medications, massage, and a variety of vitamins were ineffective in relieving chronic pain Mary had throughout her body. An SEMG scan revealed pressure in her nervous system that was causing the chronic pain. Mary began chiropractic care for her nervous system and experienced progress. However, Mary reached a plateau.


An EIS scan revealed toxicity in Mary’s liver & pancreas.

Mary started Health Coaching and experienced great results.

The clarity and support with personalized Health Coaching made it easy for Mary to make lifestyle changes with her food and supplements. The result was sustainable improvement for her health.



“Let Food Be Thy Medicine & Medicine Be Thy Food”

– Hippocrates

Toxicity is linked to inflammation in the body. 



Inflammation is your body’s response to stress – whether from your diet, lifestyle or environment.
When inflammation causing substances are allowed to enter the body, your digestive tract  becomes inflamed.


Inflamed Digestive Tract Symptoms Include:

  • Diarrhea or constipation
  • Gas and pain
  • Heartburn and acid reflux
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Arthritis
  • Diabetes
  • Chronic Pain

 Certain chemicals in the foods you eat trigger the release of neurotransmitters that heighten sensitivity such as:



  • White Flour
  • White Sugar
  • Processed Food
  • Bottled Water (contains PCB)
  • Alcohol
  • Non-Organic Meats
  • High Fructose Corn Syrup


How Health Coaching Helped Mary:

  • Personalized diet
  • Specific dosage of quality supplements for her individual needs
  • Emailing Support to make changes sustainable


Health Coaching & Chronic Pain
Begins with an EIS (Electro Interstitial Scan). If inflammation is present this scan will show where it is present in the body.


After EIS, your specific needs can be assessed and addressed.


With Lesia, you will explore concerns specific to you, your genetics, & your body.


What Does Health Coaching Include?

  • One-on one weekly Coaching sessions
  • Unlimited e-mail support
  • Motivational & Emotional Support
  • Vitamin Recommendation (based on your test results)
  • 10% OFF all products
  • EIS Scans to Monitor Your Success
  • Personalized Menu Specific to Your Needs

The Good & Bad News About Your Health Insurance

Good News: The Chiropractic Approach to Better Health Is Safe & Natural

No drugs. No surgery.

Instead, we will locate & adjust areas of your spine that interfere with the workings of your nervous system. As your nervous system is able to control your body correctly, health can return.

True health is how well your body works, not how you feel.

Bad News: It will be tempting to stop your care when you feel better.

This will predispose you to a relapse because supporting muscles and ligaments won’t be fully healed. That happens gradually, with continued care, after symptoms go away.

But your policy won’t cover the necessary care. ---read more--->

Are You Suffering With Depression?

Hope With Chiropractic Care!  

Vicki came into our office and received a free consultation. She began Chiropractic Care and experienced great results. Vicki’s headaches went away and she no longer needed medication to deal with her anxiety and depression.
How is this possible? 
Vicki was suffering from chronic and constant headaches, as well as depression and anxiety. For years Vicki had been seeing a mental health counselor and taking depression and anxiety medication. However, Vicki’s condition continued to stay the same.


How Do Chiropractic Adjustments Work?

The top bone in the neck is the control switch for the brain. This bone is called the atlas.
When the atlas is out of alignment with the spine it can result in:
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Headaches

The spine and the nervous system are the master controller for the brain:

  • Adjustments can provide an opiate endorphin release to provide calm and happy effects in your brain and body.
  • In contrast to harmful medications, Chiropractic adjustments are natural and safe with no side effects.

 When Vicki’s atlas stayed in place after several months of care she was able to  stop all medication due to the calming effect the adjustments had on her brain and body.

Laser After Surgery

On June 17th 2010, I was working on my truck at a friend’s house in P.A. As I reached up to pull myself out from under it, I heard a pop in my right shoulder. When I looked down at my arm I saw that my bicep was balled up at my elbow. A trip to the emergency room confirmed the obvious. I had detached the right bicep at the shoulder.

Charlie Gager 7-15-10 B

Upon returning to N.C., I saw Dr. Cruz to determine a treatment course for healing the arm after the required surgery. On July 6th 2010, I had surgery to reattach the long head of my biceps. On July 12th 2010, after the bandages from the surgery were removed, I received my first laser treatment. My pain at the surgery site was 75%.

Laser Therapy for Liver Problems

edited pic“I had a sluggish liver and my medical doctor was wanting to do an ultrasound and procedure. I decided to try laser therapy then redo blood work. After 13 laser treatment and 3 months of health coaching, liver numbers came down 16 points well into the normal range. . .for the first time in 7 years. Triglycerides came down 29 points, good cholesterol went up 6 points.”  

“My health was very bad and I needed to improve it. Then I was diagnosed with a rare form of Leukemia.

Laser Therapy for Neck & Back Pain

betty barrier photo“I suffered from chronic back and neck pain. I could barely move the left side of my neck and lower back when I came in for the first Laser Treatment. I could not believe the difference after just one treatment. I could continued with three laser treatments and three adjustments per week, and with each visit I just kept getting better. Not only has the laser and adjustments helped me with my pain, but I have so much more energy and feel better about myself. I am enjoying being active and basically pain free.
