Virtually everyone I run into is exhausted in the morning...maybe they hit the snooze once or twice before they rush off to the coffee maker, the convient store, or Starbucks for a shot of caffiene. Stressed out and running late, they charge around their house, yelling at their kids, and finally rushing off to work. The drain hits again after lunch - the mid-afternoon slump - affecting their work and productivity points. Again, another caffienated beverage gives them the necessary jolt to make it through the day. Arriving at home, scarfing down something easy and pleasing and sitting down to "finally relax" in front of the TV for a couple of hours. Finally, they are completely exhausted when they finally hit the sack at night.

Do you know anybody like this?

Just Imagine...

Just imagine for a moment if you had unlimited amounts of energy. You woke up at 5 or 6 am excited to start your day. Your able to jump into the daily activities with a fresh step and have more done by 10 am than most have in the course of an entire day.

Your co-workers are amazed at your productivity at work, they wonder how you are able to get so much done, your boss can't help but give you a raise, promotion, and whatever else he/she can do to keep you around. You have more time with your family, with your spiritual pursuits, and with your friends and outside relationships. Your able to take care of all those little projects you have putting off Everyone asks you how you can get so much you are able to balance so much in your life. You tell them one thing....I found the secrets to being Energized 4 Life...and now there is no going back!!!

The mission of God’s inborn intelligence within the human body is to maintain the material of the body of a living thing in active organization” Dr. Ralph W. Stephenson

What is the difference between life and death?

If you cut your finger, what eventually happens to it? It heals.
If you cut a fresh corpse, that weighs exactly the same as it did a second ago when it was a living, breathing human being, would it heal? No.

So the major difference between life and death is the presence of a powerful healing force that is all together weightless.

With some of the latest discoveries in quantum physics and molecular biology, it has been shown that we are much more than a large grouping of random molecules. Instead, it has been shown that we are better described as a river of flowing energy. Our bodies have been naturally designed to harness a powerful electrical current that is well structured and organized in form. This energy stream is vital for all life and function.

The primary structure that controls and coordinates the electrical stream of life is the brain. The brain is the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the body. It contains the blueprint, the formula for strong, healthy, high-energy lifestyle that according to the latest Harvard research, should last for 120-130 years. Our creator has implanted the most amazing system that communicates billions of messages from the brain down through the spinal cord and into the periphery in a split-second’s time. This brilliant system of neural connections we call the nervous system. Life is all about moving, adapting, and recreating to mirror the demands of our environment. The ability of our body to run this electrical current of information through various pathways as mediated by the Central Nervous System is what makes up our life experience.

In the earliest stages of development brain and spinal cord are the first organs to form. Once they arrive, they branch out and penetrate all the other areas of the embryo, bringing an electrical network that communicates the highly specific message of growth and maturation to every cell in the body. This system coordinates every function in our body and adapts us to the ever-changing demands of our society with the best of its ability.

No matter how bad off our condition may be, we are not pronounced dead until the nervous system activity within our brain shuts down. Nervous system flow is the beginning of life, and it’s decline marks the end of life. Most importantly though, the level of health and function of our nervous system plays an enormous role in our quality and expression of life.


Your body, which is composed of 100 trillion cells, is quite remarkable. It is naturally programmed to heal your body. In the matter of a second:

You eliminate 10 million old cells
You rebuild 10 million new cells
Each one of these cells takes part in over 100,000 chemical reactions

Your body is naturally designed to rebuild cells with a strong, resistant structure to protect the 3.2 billion nucleic acids that make up the genes in 1 cell. Disease begins to form when your body no longer recognizes what constitutes a healthy cell with a DNA structure that will last 120 strong and healthy years from a denatured piece of DNA that is programmed for cancer, heart disease, and an early death.

This alteration in function comes about in 2 ways:
1) Deficiency
– in nerve supply, proper nutrients, movement, oxygen, positive thoughts, and quality rest
2) Toxicity – overabundance of physical, mental, and spiritual stresses.

In order to be Energized 4 Life, we must:
1) Maximize our Healing Ability – take stress of the brain/spinal cord
2) Clear up the lifestyle issues that are creating the deficiencies/toxicities.

Drugs and surgeries will never heal your body. They are only useful in emergency situations, like a serious trauma, where they help provide a more stable environment for your body to do it’s job – and heal itself.

The Heart of the Matter:

Think about your heart for a minute. While you are busy focusing on what you are going to do today, your heart is working a miracle in your body. Your heart pumps out 2 gallons of blood every minute and 100 gallons every hour. It beats over 100,000 times in the course of a day, 40 million times in a year, and over 3 billion times in an average liftetime. All the while, your breathing, digesting your food, and pumping out various hormones without ever consciously thinking about it.

Consider this: The brain processes 400 billion bits of information every second. Out of these 400 billion bits – we are conscious of just 2,000 bits. If we are to base our health on how we feel, then we are missing the boat. We are settling for a sliver of the health picture.

Have you ever known anyone that felt great and then all of a sudden dropped dead of a heart attack? It happens numerous times everyday. People without any obvious signs or symptoms of heart trouble, clear medical tests, 0 diagnoses, all of a sudden bow out with a massive heart attack.

Have you ever known anyone that developed cancer? Before the diagnosis came, how did they feel? Terrific!

Science has shown that it takes an average of 10-15 years for most cancers to develop before the best medical test can pick it up. Too Late. By this point, you are already sick! A better measure would be to look at how you are healing. Since the brain and spinal cord control and coordinate all the healing in the body, that is the best place to look.

The 2 most valuable, uninvasive, and cost-effective methods for analyzing the body’s nerve function to see the measure of their healing ability are:
1) Insight Millennia – Thermal scan coupled with an Electromyography study.
2) X-ray –Particularly of the side of the neck – to examine the degree of Cervical curve, Atlas position, and Forward Head Posture

When the UPS is shipping something fragile and expensive, what do they do? They put protective layers of cardboard and Styrofoam around it, to reduce trauma and potential damage to the item. In a similar, but much more sophisticated manner, the body has put a protective seal of bones, ligaments, tendons, and 6 layers of muscle around the brain and spinal cord in an attempt to keep it stable and erect at all times.

Common Sense: Protect what is most vital!

New research has shown that before we initiate any sort of movement, simple or complex, the brain has already seen the intended motion six times and fires down to contract the spinal stabilizing muscles (the core musculature) before any other movement takes place.

Unfortunately, just as the fragile shipping items can get damaged under improper conditions no matter how well they are packaged, the same is true for our spinal cord and nervous system. Most people understand that car accidents, falls, traumatic births, and the crazy stunt’s many of us take part in during our rather forgetful teenage years obviously threaten the stability of this system. But we are forgetting the many subtle, yet destructive habits we all take part in regularly. These include:

· Poor posture
· Repetitive Motions
· Shallow breathing habits
· Chronic Dehydration
· Toxic eating habits
· Emotional stress - fear, worry, doubt, anger, frustration, depression, and unforgiveness.
· Prescription and over-the-counter medications

As we face a continual onslaught of these conditions, we experience damage to our nervous system, which is referred to as “subluxation.” Subluxations interfere with the flow of life energy, limiting our ability to successfully adapt and modify our internal environment to reflect our external environment. As we go about our lives without getting these subluxations corrected, we experience more damage, leading to further degeneration and poorer quality of life.

Consider this:

Have you ever tried to explain something to somebody when they weren’t really paying attention? What is the end result... they miss out on the message and you end up exerting more frustration, energy, and stress to get through to them.

The same is true for our body, when there are subluxations present in the body, we must expend a greater amount of energy for even the most basic tasks. This inefficient use of our energy leads to toxic buildup within cells and tissues, decreasing our function, which can often be experienced as chronic fatigue, pain, and further stress to our organ systems.

Subluxations may not show obvious clinical signs and symptoms right away, but the level of functionality and adaptability of our body is certainly decreased. For example, in many degenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, the clinical diagnosis not made until 80-90% of the neurons in the critical areas of the brain are already destroyed. By this point there is not much left to work with, and the prognosis is not very good.

Fortunately, the chiropractic profession (in particular – wellness based chiropractors) has many specialized diagnostic methods to analyze and evaluate the health of the nervous system well before major damage occurs. Once the doctor has extensively reviewed the analysis they will create a care plan to gently and specifically remove and eliminate subluxations and restore maximal nervous system function to the body.

In order to maintain maximal nerve system function, we must minimize as many of the toxic stresses and instead take part in life enhancing activities. This is where the entire Energized 4 Life package comes in. When we choose to reduce/eliminate medication usage, unnecessary surgery, and toxic food, air, and water consumption and instead seek wellness based chiropractic care, eat quality, unrefined foods from the earth, get regular exercise, and take part in peace and mission-centered thoughts and activities throughout the day we create greater stability and ease of flow for the life energy that sustains us.

The integration of information from our nervous system is essential to every thought, action, and activity you or I will ever take part in throughout our lives. When we are experiencing maximal nerve supply throughout our body, we will have greater ease and comfort in life as we successfully adapt to the ever-changing demands our often hostile environment places upon us. Because of this simple, yet highly misunderstood fact, maximal nerve supply should be the chief aim in life for ourselves, our loved ones, and world we live in.

Everyone deserves to mature in the direction of their dreams, everyone deserves to experience the amazing benefits that come with free and clear flow of life energy, and everyone deserves to lie at their highest level. Maximal nerve supply through regular chiropractic care and the Energized 4 Life lifestyle is the answer.
