Lyme Disease

Lyme Disease is the fastest growing infectious disease in the United States. Lyme disease is caused by the bacteria Borrellia burgdorferi. Other Borrelia species will also cause Lyme. Lyme is mainly caused by a tick bite. However, new research is showing it to be present in mosquitoes and horse flies. Lyme is an insidious disease that can mimic over 300 different diseases. Borrelia has the ability to shape change while in present of a host. It can be a spirochete (cork-screw) and travel through the body, it can shut down into a cyst formation (round body), and create a biofilm, an extremely sticky mucus that prevents the immune system from penetrating into it. If you have been diagnosed with M.S., Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, ALS, Hashimoto's, Rheumatoid arthritis, or any other autoimmune disease, you should rule out Lyme disease. As easy as this may seem as to simply rule this out, Lyme is VERY difficult to detect! A Lyme disease diagnosis is not a diagnosis made from a laboratory test. A skilled practitioner should look at the person's health history, clinical symptoms, exam findings, and laboratory test to make an accurate assessment. Long term use of antibiotic therapy can be problematic as the antibiotic does not address the biofilm of Borrelia and can set up an person for antibiotic resistant bacteria.

Symptoms of Lyme disease consists of some of the following:

  • Pain that migrates throughout the body and comes and goes
  • Increased or decreased symptoms with antibiotic use
  • Symptoms get worse around menstrual cycle
  • Neurological symptoms such as numbness, tingling, forgetfulness, etc...
  • Fatigue
  • Fever, chills
  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Migraines
  • Joint pain
  • Pain that is not improved with any medication
  • Insomnia--A BIG PROBLEM WITH LYME
  • Chronic UTI's
  • Chronic sinusitis

Lyme can carry with it many co-infections. Some of the co-infections are the following:

  • Mycoplasma
  • Babesia
  • Bartonella
  • Erlichiosis
  • Herpes
  • Brachyspira
  • Treptomnia
  • Protomyxzoa Rheumatica
  • Chlamydia Pneumoniae
  • much more!

Natural protocols can be VERY helpful for one with chronic issues from Lyme disease. Some of the natural components I use in my office include:

  • The Byron White Formulas
  • Teasel Root
  • Glutathione
  • NAC
  • CoCucurmin
  • Oncoplex
  • Total Bac-T
  • Aloe Ferox
  • Detoxification support
  • SAMe/TMG

Chiropractic Examinations

We provide advanced spinal correction and chiropractic adjustments utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic care have chiropractors been able to provide the level of help and expertise that is available today. Many of the newest chiropractic techniques are actually safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. Chiropractic care under a trained professional can even be used to prevent injuries and help you achieve total health or wellness.

Neck and Back Pain

Common spinal misalignment's that can occurs can cause neck and back pain. Your neck protects your spinal cord and spinal nerves, while supporting and balancing the weight of your head. Poor posture, wear and tear, injury, stress, and tension can strain or damage vital parts of your neck. Your neck is aligned in a natural curve at the top of your spine. Damage to your neck’s natural curve can cause painful problems.

Applied Kinesiology (AK)

Applied Kinesiology (AK), developed by Dr. George Goodheart in 1964, uses bioenergetic feedback through testing the strength of various muscles in the body. This highly individualized, in-depth sytem of analysis, allows the doctor to assess various aspects of a patient's state of health by evaluating and treating postural and muscular imbalances, neurovascular and neurolymphatic points, subluxation, cranial-sacral movement, acupuncture meridians and nutritional status. This is a highly effective treatment system which focuses on whole body care.

AK allows the skilled health practitioner to evaluate functional illness, which typically precedes disease. This highly individualized, in-depth sytem of analysis, allows the doctor to assess various aspects of a patient's state of health by evaluating and treating postural and muscular imbalances, neurovascular and neurolymphatic points, subluxation, cranial-sacral movement, acupuncture meridians and nutritional status. This is a highly effective treatment system which focuses on whole body care. AK enables health investigation without intrusion. AK gives insight into the underlying causes and solutions to many functional health problems.

One of the biggest benefits of AK is it gives us a tool for discernment!

Detox Footbaths

The detox foothbath was designed and developed to restore the body's energy and balance while facilitating and aiding in its natural detoxification process. This device has been proven in clinical trials to balance and restore the body's Ph and electromagnetic energy.

How does it work?

The foot bath uses direct current similar to that of the human body to create an ionic field. The patient places their feet in the bioenergetic water to receive the flow of ions which increases cellular function. Studies have shown that more cellular ATP is produced during treatment which enhances the cells to work and detoxify at a higher rate.

You may benefit from the detox footbath if you suffer from:

  • Arthritis
  • Allergies
  • Chronic Pain
  • Multiple Chemical Sensitivities
  • Autoimmune Diseases
  • Edema
  • Inflammation

Thyroid Disorders

Millions of people suffer from thyroid disorders, many of whom have hypothyroidism. Symptoms of hypothyroidism can include the following:

  • Headaches in the morning that get better as the day progresses
  • Fatigue
  • Difficulty losing weight
  • Brittle nails
  • Constipation
  • Depression
  • Hair falling out or thinning
  • Losing the lateral one third of the eyebrow
  • Low body temperature
  • Cold hands and/or feet
  • Goiter
  • Nodules

The vast majority of hypothyroidism is due to Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, an autoimmune disease. Nonetheless, many people have not even been tested for Hashimoto's. Medicine treats Hashimoto's the same as hypothyroidism. However, Hashimoto's is NOT a thyroid problem...It is an IMMUNE SYSTEM problem! Thyroid Disorders are often mismanaged by many doctors across the U.S. mainly due to the broad reference range of laboratory tests. An accurate picture of the thyroid should consist of a complete thyroid panel. A complete thyroid panel should consist of the following:

  • TSH
  • T4
  • T3
  • Free T3
  • Free T4
  • Free Thyroxine Index
  • T3 Uptake
  • Reverse T3
  • TPO & Anti-thyroglobulin Antibodies

Our office uses individually tailored nutritional protocols to help you support your thyroid. Some of the common nutrients used in our office are:

  • Iodine
  • Homeopathic halogen removal
  • Thyroven
  • Gamma Detox FX
  • Green Tea ND
  • Max Thyroid
  • Adaptagen R3
  • ChyaPro

Through the use of binural beats, affirmations, and light therapy, BrainTap can help you achieve a new level of health!

Cold Laser Therapy

Where is this being used?

The cold laser device has gained recent FDA approval for the non-surgical treatment of neck and shoulder complaints and is being used widely in the NFL and by the USPS tour de France team chiropractor. The beneficial effects of the cold laser are currently being researched by leading plastic surgeons for use in liposuction proceedures.

How does it work?

When the body has an injury the cells are damaged and fail to function within normal parameters. Low level lasers penetrate deeply into the skin and work by restoring this abnormal cellular function. Physiologic effects include improved metabolism, circulation and tissue healing.

Laser therapy may be useful to you if you have any of the following:

  • Tendonitis
  • Frozen Shoulder
  • Fractures
  • Post-Operative Wounds
  • Sprain-Strains
  • Scar Tissue
  • Autoimmune Diseases
  • Chronic or Acute Pain
  • Wound Healing
  • Arthritis
  • Migraines
  • Disc Herniations
  • Minor Nerve Damage
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Heavy Metal Detoxification

Nutritional Counseling

Nutritional counseling appointments are available in office or by phone. All of our programs consist of high quality nutritional lines which can be shipped directly to your location.

Adjustments And Manipulation

A chiropractic adjustment, also known as chiropractic manipulation, manual manipulation, or spinal manipulation, is the primary chiropractic treatment method for back pain.

Spinal manipulation is relieves pressure on joints, reduces inflammation, and improves nerve function. It has been a trusted form of treatment since the ancient Greek Hippocrates documented manipulative techniques in his writings back in 1500 B.C. Today, spinal manipulation is used to treat conditions such as allergies, menstrual cramps and headaches.

How Does Spinal Manipulation Work?

There are well over 100 types of adjustment techniques used by chiropractors throughout the world. Some practitioners may use force and twisting, while other techniques are more gentle. Regardless of how they are performed, these techniques are intended to restore or enhance joint function with the objectives of reducing pain and resolving joint inflammation.

When vertebrae shift out of place, there is an overall systemic response from the muscular system to the central nervous system. Without proper alignment and flow, our nerves, our immune system, and our minds cannot function at their highest peak.

Overall, spinal adjustments and manipulations are an excellent way to keep the body functioning at its highest level without any discomfort. When the body is adequately aligned, it becomes able to respond and perform as it was built to do.

Functional Medicine

The focus of Functional Medicine is to get to the root cause of disease using a systems-oriented model. Functional medicine explores deeper concepts of genetics, lifestyle, environmental, and nutrition to allow a patient to achieve a higher level of health. Seay Wellness utilizes some of the following tests:

  • Heavy Metal testing
  • Stool analysis for digestive health and microbial flora
  • Food Sensitivity Testing
  • Genetic Testing
  • Adrenal Testing
  • Comprehensive Hormone Testing (DUTCH)
  • Intestinal Permeability testing
  • Inflammation
  • Blood Chemistries
  • Chronic infection
  • Fatty and Amino Acid testing
  • Diamine Oxidase & Histamine testing
  • Nutrient testing
  • Detoxification testing

Detoxification

Spring Cleaning
We continuously consume artificial additives in our food. We breathe pollution. We are exposed to chemicals, pesticides and cigarette smoke.

Exposures to these toxins are not blatantly obvious to us and are hard to pinpoint as a cause for illness. Some toxins are naturally occurring chemicals that our body has had a hard time breaking down. When accumulated in our cells these toxins can cause mutation or death. These can be harmless in very small quantities by deadly in large amounts.

All of these toxins are getting in the way of our health. We use a variety of detoxification techniques.

One of our most-popular methods of detoxification is the footbath. The footbath was designed and developed to restore the body's energy while facilitating and aiding in its natural detoxification process. This device has been proven in clinical trials to balance and restore the body's Ph and electromagnetic energy.

Also using Healing Lasers and frequency modulation we can use energy to help move the toxins out of the tissues and enhance the body's processes to flush them out of the system. Cold laser treatments can facilitate detoxification by increasing blood or lymph circulation.

You may benefit from the footbath if you suffer from:

  • arthritis
  • allergies
  • chronic pain
  • autoimmune diseases
  • inflammation

Regular detoxification is also a good way to maintain a general feeling of well-being and overall health.

Nutrition


Surveys show that 20% of the US population never eats vegetables, and 40% rarely consumes fruit or fruit juices. 80% of the population never consumes whole grains or high-fiber foods. All forms of refined sugar lower the immune system response and interferes with the ability of the white blood cells to destroy unfriendly bacteria.

The standard American diet, which contains food grown on depleted soils, has left Americans deficient in many nutrients important to health. To get the right nutrition, you must supplement your diet. Supplementation is recommended for nearly 99% of the patients that come into our office.

Specific nutrition has been developed to correct the deficiencies, inadequacies, and toxicities. To rebalance nutrition it is important to:

A. Reset Adrenals & the General Adaptive Syndrome (GAS)
B. Replenish Nutrition for Organs, Glands or Systems Weakness.
C. Reduce Infective Organisms in the Body.
D. Replace Enzymes and/or HCL to Aid Digestion, Assimilation and Elimination.
E. Restore Proper Bowel Flora to Optimize Colon Function

What Is Chiropractic?

Taking a Natural Systemic Approach to Healing

Chiropractic is a way of looking at the human body as a whole. It's based on the idea that the body is self-sustaining and self-healing.

You know that your body is controlled by your brain, but the spinal cord and vast network of nerves that carry its messages are just as important. When this system is not functioning at its peak, your body’s overall performance suffers.

In the chiropractic world, we don’t use drugs to treat our patients. While supplementation and nutrition are almost always a part of the bigger picture, drugs and prescriptions can be viewed as band-aids to treat symptoms rather than treating the source of the problem. Chiropractic treats the problem naturally and in turn prompts the body to heal itself.

While it's often perceived that the chiropractor solely treats back and neck pain, this is a small piece of what the profession is capable of handling. Chiropractors not only treat soft and hard tissue problems such as sciatica and joint pain, but are largely called on to deal with many different health issues. Some of these issues include fibromyalgia, allergies, insomnia, and headaches among many more.

Food Sensitivity Testing

Sensitivities from foods and additives are different from allergies. With an allergy, you body responds with an antibody called IgE. This antibody is very strong and works very quickly. With allergies to certain foods, you can have a pronounced and immediate effect that can even cause death. Food allergies require you to avoid them and if you come into contact with a food allergy, you require an Epi-pen to help reverse the effects. With a food sensitivity, you response is less and activates an IgG response. The IgG response is delayed and can cause a host of problems. Problems with food sensitivities can include the following:

  • Digestive Disorders
  • Migraines
  • Obesity
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • ADD/ADHD
  • Aching Joints
  • Skin Disorders
  • Arthritis
  • And much more...

My office can test for food sensitivities through the following companies

  • ALCAT
  • Cyrex
  • Genova Diagnostics
  • Vibrant Wellness

Diabetes

With the current obesity crisis in America, type II diabetes is becoming more frequent and even affecting children. Type II diabetes, despite what your doctor tells you, is reversible! In order to reverse diabetes, one has to be vigilant with diet, exercise, and nutritional support. Long before you have been diagnosed with diabetes, you have lived for years in insulin resistance. Insulin resistance occurs from the inability of the cell to recognize insulin. Therefore, it takes more insulin to get glucose into the cell. Over time, the beta cells in the pancreas cannot keep up with the large amount of insulin necessary to get glucose into the cell. Causes of insulin resistance and diabetes include the following:

  • Diet high in refined sugars, fructose, and high fructose corn syrup
  • Statin drugs
  • Sedentary lifestyle

New research is showing the effects of high blood sugar on the brain is leading to Alzheimer's Disease. Diabetes creates a whole host of problems and leads to a downward spiral in your health. Diabetes can cause the following if not controlled or reversed:

  • Peripheral neuropathy
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Kidney disease/failure
  • Blindness
  • Breast cancer
  • Retinopathy
  • Slow wound healing
  • Amputation

To reverse diabetes, you must address the insulin resistance. Medicine does not address insulin resistance and only "manage" your blood sugar levels. The most commonly used medicines are oral hypoglycemics that cause the beta cells to kick out more insulin to drive down your blood sugar. To find out if you are in insulin resistance, the following lab tests are beneficial:

  • Blood glucose
  • Hemoglobin A1C
  • Fasting Insulin
  • LDH
  • Uric Acid
  • Triglycerides
  • Anion gap

Nutritional support is vital to reversing diabetes and insulin resistance. Some of the nutritional support that is utilized in the office are as follows:

  • Medcaps IS
  • ALAMax
  • Deltanol
  • Pancreven
  • Vitamin B1
  • Gymnema
  • OptiMetaboliX
  • CinnDromeX
  • InSea2
  • Ginseng FX
  • Chromium
  • Vanadium

Peripheral Neuropathy

Peripheral neuropathy affects nearly 20 million Americans, many of whom find little to no relief with conventional treatments. Peripheral neuropathy deals with the peripheral nervous system, nerves that branch off from the spinal cord. Symptoms include numbness, tingling, burning, muscle weakness, and sensitivity to touch. Peripheral neuropathy is a breakdown in the large diameter afferent pathway of the nervous system. This pathway is the fastest pathway in the entire nervous system (moves at 270 mph!). The large diameter afferent pathway is subject to metabolic change. For example, if your blood sugar stays too high for too long, your large diameter pathway will breakdown. Hence, why diabetes will cause peripheral neuropathy. The toes, feet, and legs are the areas most affected but the fingers and hands can also have neuropathy. Getting the large diameter afferent pathway firing better is the key to helping peripheral neuropathy. An often overlooked contributor to peripheral neuropathy are statin drugs. One must be checked through functional neurology to identify where the functional issues lies.

Migraines & Headaches

Headaches and migraines can be debilitating and many times, people cannot find relief and their headaches become chronic. Getting to the root cause of the headache or migraine can be tricky. Majority of the time, headache and migraine symptoms are suppressed by medication. There are many causes of headaches and migraines but some of the causes are as follows:

  • Tension
  • Poor Posture
  • Misalignment
  • Food intolerance
  • Toxcity
  • Inflammation
  • Heavy Metals
  • Lyme's Disease
  • Infection
  • Hormonal Imbalance
  • Thyroid dysfunction
  • Adrenal fatigue
  • Allergies

In order to overcome headaches and migraines, one must be addressed neurologically and metabolically! Some of the nutritional support that is used in our office is as follows:

  • DHA
  • B complex
  • Neuro Comfort
  • Trace minerals
  • Valerian Root
  • Cucurmin
  • Progesterone
  • Methyl Folate and B12
