Scoliosis, chronic fatigue syndrome, heartburn, GERD, headache, sinus infections – Gonstead

October 31, 2019

– Well, I have scoliosis
and my back has been, and my back and my neck has
been hurting a lot lately. – So during the consultation you told me, and we found out that basically you’re feeling a lot of fatigue,
feeling very sleepy. – Yeah. – Around 3:00 p.m. or so is that correct? – Right. – And, you also mentioned what else is going on up here? You mentioned about sinuses, adrenals. – I have trouble breathing through my nose and my jaw locks occasionally and my neck stiffens and it hurts. – Okay, so we take it from there and we’re going to explain how everything’s all
interconnected, right. Okay so here’s the deal, okay, the reason why we take a look I want to show you from the bottom is because just like strong
foundation over here, strong structure. Unstable structure, that’s
an unstable foundation leads to an unstable structure. In other words that’s why you have all this twisting going on as such. All because this region
over here is unstable. So I took a look on the xray itself, your foundation is actually not that bad. However the bone right above it, okay this is the fifth lumbar on you, over here it’s out, okay, so that’s your first
structural abnormality. So this is a model of a
lumbar spine over here. Okay, so we’re looking from the back, the front, right side, okay, on you, okay, normal, I want to see these two bones line up on the xray. However what I see on the xray instead is it went backwards as such. So this is what normal’s
supposed to look like over here, okay, so as you see over
here it moves a little bit, okay, abnormal due to some kind of trauma knocks it backwards, see
how much movement there is? Right, that’s a lot of
movement right there. So what your body does
to try to stabilize this, okay, is number one, okay,
all the surrounding muscles they start clenching up, okay. So they clench up really tight. So you may experience that
low back tightness over here. Okay, you may experience
that shoulder tightness and neck tightness as well, okay. Sounds familiar so far? – Yeah. – All right, so that’s what happens when it’s unstable like this. Okay, muscles clench up to
provide some more stability. Now it’s not as good as over here where there’s slight
movement which is normal because we’re supposed to move, right. We’re not statue. But with the significant
misalignment over here okay, there’s just way too much movement. That’s what we see over here. These two bones are not lining up. That’s the reason why everything else, straight up, just like Jenga, okay, everything else is being destabilized. Okay, so now that’s why we need to correct
the fifth lumbar, okay, in addition to what we also
identified on you, okay, this one over here, 11th
dorsal we need to correct, okay, over here. The sixth dorsal need to correct as well and, kicks and giggles,
do the second dorsal and also the very first bone, the atlas. So again it seems like a lot
of things we need to correct. Okay, this is the one
that started it all off, the whole entire domino effect. So the fifth lumbar, this bottom one we need to correct first. Okay, and we’re going to see, through an examination,
what else that’s priority that we need to correct as well. Over the course of several visits we need to correct and address through the rest of the structure as well. Okay, any questions? – Uh, no questions. – All right let’s roll. It’s a very small reading but there it is. Okay so with the
visualization and (mumbles) right off the bat I can already tell there’s some swelling over here, definitely swelling over here, okay. It’s kind of swollen like
this big right over here. You can feel it’s nice
an puffy right here too. Tender right there? – Yup. – Yeah. You feel this little, you feel that. – Yeah. – It feels like a rope, what’s it called, like a speed bump right here,
bumpy right here, right. It should be nice and smooth here, it’s a little swollen right here. It’s like the fifth
lumbar right over here. Tender right there? – Yeah. – See that’s the fifth lumbar. See the difference over here, you can move easily to the left, see that, harder to move to the right, okay. So that’s where the problem is. Tender right there? How’s this one, tender there? – Yeah. – So you got a lot of
things going on my friend. – [Woman] I know he’s too young. – How is that, what does it feel like? – Pain in my lower back. – (mumbles) right there. (cracking sound) What’s different? – It’s more reliving. – Okay do a squat. – It doesn’t hurt. – Well how do you like that. (woman laughing) – [Woman] Wow. – You think that’s worth something? – Yeah. – Okay, ready for more? – Yeah. (laughing) (clapping) – What’s different? – Less pain. – Okay, and? There’s a camera over here. – [Woman] It seems straight. – Is it? – [Woman] Yeah. – [Doctor] What else
do you feel different? – Less pain, less bending. – Okay, how’s your energy? – More up. – You feel like you just had
a nice little pick me up. – Yeah. – Right, ain’t that something? So just when we discussed before we’ve restored a nerve
to your adrenal glands. That’s why you feel
like a nice pick me up, a nice little boost of energy, right. – Move your shoulder, like this. What’s it feel like now? – More relaxed. – Okay, what else is different? – The mobility. – Okay, how’s the neck? – Doesn’t hurt. – We didn’t even correct it yet. How do you like that, huh? Go ahead just breathe through your nose. What does it feel like, easier to breathe? – Yeah. – Right, see that’s the deal because we took all that
rotation out of your spine, okay. That’s why it took a lot of rotation right off here on your very
first atlas bone over here. Okay, that’s what caused
all that twisting, okay, and that’s why it reduced
the sinuses, okay, eustachian tubes, everything, all the pressures inside, that’s why everything
else is just dissipate, that’s why it’s reducing. Okay, what about the tension as well, what about the tension? – Less. – Less tension, all right. So even though you see all
these (mumbles) markers we’ve made over here, okay, don’t be too concerned about it because again these are
potential areas of concerns, but we only corrected the fifth lumbar, his 11th dorsal and his sixth dorsal, that’s all we’re correcting, just to help unwind all of this. Now we’re going to check his atlas again, see what’s going on in there. Now in future visits
we may need to address his eighth dorsal and his second dorsal, but right now, okay, there’s, I want to be really sure. That’s why in the Gonstead method we use five objective indicators to be really sure that yes
we do need to correct these. But today’s visit, no, we
don’t have all the indicators pointed at these two need to be corrected. That’s why we leave them alone. Got that mama? – [Mother] Yes. – Just relax (mumbles). See that difference now? A lot looser, right? Okay. Feel that knot over here,
not as bad as before. Feel that difference there. That’s tender. – It hurts less. – It hurts less (mumbles). What about this one over here? – (mumbles) – Bingo, so that’s exactly
what’s going to happen, we’re not going to touch your neck because there’s not enough
indicators to correct it. We have to focus on again
that fifth lumbar that’s what (mimicking whooshing sound) twisting you all the way
straight up like a corkscrew. Okay so now we got to
take all that twisting out of your spine, that’s
what’s going to make you better. Any other questions? – (mumbles). – What’s that? How are you loving that brother? – It’s good. – Yeah, talk to you two over here, how do you like it? Let everyone know about it. – It’s nice, refreshing, relaxing. – Fill us in how are things
since the last visit. – Um, things have been less painful. I’ve been able to sleep
a little easier now. – Good. – It’s easier to bend down. My back doesn’t hurt as much as before and the pain in my neck
is you know going down. – Okay. – Yeah. – Also what about your energy level? – I’m not as tired as before. – What about the sinuses and
the tension in your head? – Breathe pretty well,
my head doesn’t hurt. – Good, so how are you loving it brother? – It’s good.
