Thoughts La Jolla best chiropractic and massage are not intangible clouds that appear over cartoon characters. They are very much tangible, triggering the body to produce neuro-electrical biochemicals (serotonin, dopamine, epinephrine, etc...) that flow down a path of connected nerve cells to create emotions which relate to those thoughts. They actually occupy a space in our brain through neurons (nerve cells) and explain why we call them thought patterns (created by nerve pathways).

In our office, we observe that slow healing injuries are usually due to:

  • toxic thoughts & mental/emotional overload,
  • imbalanced diet causing acidic chemistry and malnutrition,
  • sedentary lifestyle, or
  • any combination of the 3
Every thought causes an action or reaction...

Natural support for H. Pylori infections & Stomach Ulcers

by Olivia Chang
on June 18, 2014

H. Pylori (Helicobacter Pylori) is a bacteria linked to gastrointestinal ulcers, gastritis, indigestion and stomach infection.This silent but aggressive infection, when untreated, can contribute to stomach cancer. Due to its aggressive nature, when improperly treated, it often recurs.It is commonly treated by antibiotics.However, some are resistant to such therapy and will need prolonged and combined antibiotics to ensure success.A few of the secondary side effects of prolonged antibiotic therapy are yeast infection and a weakened immune system.There are some natural alternatives that we’ve used successfully in our clinical practice.In addition to dietary changes, we use Mastica (Allergy Research Group), Bio-HPF (Biotics Research), and Original Medicine’s probiotics - S. Boulardii and Multi Probiotics (available to our VIP customers).

Debunking Colds and Flus... Naturally

by Olivia Chang
on January 09, 2013

ABC News recently reported “Earliest Flu Season in a Decade” (  The same time last year, only 79 people were reported with the flu – this year so far, 790.  In New York, it went from 84 to 3975 and Massachussetts, from 126 to 3736!

Looking at these numbers is enough to strike fear, especially since we’re surrounded by many sniffling and coughing around us.  Well, that is if you believe it’s normal to experience regular colds and flus, and if you believe erroneously that you can ‘catch’ a cold or bug.  The fact is, if your body is functioning in an alkaline environment, is well rested and fed with proper nutrition, the bad bugs cannot thrive in your body. Zippo! Not possible!  It’s like trying to grow a grass in the dessert!  Your body cannot catch it!  The below recommendations are guaranteed to work!  I’ve tested it myself and with patients over 20 years.  Many have high risk exposure like traveling a lot or working in a hospital environment.

Young and Feeling OLD?

Getting old is not for the faint of heart, they say. It's 'old age'! Is it really?

Ever thought of neglect? As a clinician who's practiced for over 18 years, I'm seeing 19 year-olds coming in with 'old people problems' - muscle and joint aches that won't heal.  Just lay on some junk food, sleep deprivation and sodas - and you can feel as old as your Grandpa.  On the other hand, I see 40-somethings taking a hold of their lives, eat and rest better - and they feel better than they've ever in their 20's!

Stress Fighter in a drop bottle... with BioMatrix Pregnenolone & DHEA

by Olivia Chang
on August 27, 2008

Pregnenolone is a type of hormone that is produced naturally in the human body and is also available as a dietary supplement. This natural hormone cannot be patented. Back in the 1940's, when researchers started experimenting with the use of pregnenolone, they realized that it could be helpful for people under stress and it could increase energy in those who were fatigued. However, about the same time, cortisol, another closely related hormone, was discovered. Cortisol stole the limelight. When cortisol was given to individuals with rheumatoid arthritis, there were outstanding short-term improvements. Photographs of these remarkable recoveries were circulated and the medical community was impressed. Scientists basically put pregnenolone aside to focus on cortisol. The structure of cortisol was altered to make similar molecules such as dexamethasone and prednisone, much more powerful steroids. Dexamethasone and other similar corticosteroids could be patented, and thus a pharmaceutical company could make a lot of money by owning patents. Pregnenolone, however, remains a naturally produced hormone by the body so it is available as a nutritional supplement, not as a high cost patented drug.

Welcome to's new BLOG

Welcome to's new BLOG.

You'll find our exclusive Health Enhancement Life Plan (HELP) tips pertaining to diet, nutritional supplementation, mental/emotional health, spiritual insights, etc. To ignore the spiritual, mental and emotional elements that constitute us is to deny a big part of who we are.  Mental/emotional stresses can cause IMMEDIATE body reactions such as indigestion, muscle spasms and heart attack.  As spiritual beings, our belief system dictates our thought life which cascades to our emotional reactions to life.  The western world tends to focus on the development and maintenance of the physical body.  It is no wonder why the spiritual, mental and emotional muscles are weak and why antidepressants top the most prescribed drug list (according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention).

Good health is characterized by high energy, positive outlook on life, toned and strong muscles, silky hair,  strong nails, and smooth skin.  Healthy diet and nutritional supplementation can support the body while we thrive to strengthen the spirit, mind and heart.  In upcoming blogs, we'll share insights from clinical practice, anecdotal wisdom from the ages and around the world or just simple & practical common sense tips.  You'll have information you can put to the test immediately!

Best of LIFE to you!
