Traditional Care

Because most care we experience is of the traditional variety, a great place to start is to define what is considered to be "traditional care". Traditional care typically has the following goals:

  • To reduce or eliminate symptoms by way of pills, potions, lotions or injections
  • To decrease muscular spasm/tension and increase mobility/range of motion by way of stretching, rehabilitation and therapy
  • To remove the offending organ or body part by way of surgical intervention

This is what most are used to when it comes to the care they receive, and we believe that most of these offices and physicians do a great job at what they do. Our point is that you always have options when it comes to your care. 

 

8 Dimensions Care

Unlike traditional care, here at 8 Dimensions Health Center, we focus on expanding and maximizing you body's capacity to heal and function at a maximum level. Your body is a self-healing and self-regulating entity that has the ability navigate daily life without problems. As your capacity to adapt to normal and abnormal stressors decreases, you begin to become less healthy and may express symptoms.  We utilize cutting edge diagnostics to get to the bottom of exactly how adaptable your body is to YOUR daily grind. This way, we can determine whether or not you may be a good fit for our care. 

We are all familiar with normal body temperature: 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit. How do we know when someone has abnormal eyesight? How do we know when someone has an irregular heartbeat? Or when someone has high blood pressure? For that matter, how do we know when the air pressure in our vehicle's tires is low? The ONLY way to appreciate abnormal, is to know normal. This is why we do a thorough analysis in order to find out where your health is and where we need to go.

 

What Are Secondary Conditions?

When the body begins to express symptoms or challenges in health, there has often been an underlying problem lurking for quite some time. First, nobody has ABSOLUTELY 100% PERFECT health.  However, no different than normal body temperature, normal weight and normal blood pressure, there is a range of what is acceptable and what is unacceptable. 

If there is enough Energy (Chi) interference and/or Nerve interference flowing through and communicating with the body, your health will suffer and you will likely be expressing some symptoms or secondary conditions. The reason we call these symptoms SECONDARY CONDITIONS is because they are a result of, as you might have guessed, a PRIMARY CONDITION or an underlying cause. In our office, what we are assessing is the presence of an abnormal (too much or too little) energy/Chi flow throughout the body's Meridians and/or a neurological interference (Neuropathophysiology) to the optimal flow of nerve system communication.

  

How Does This Work?

Think about the flow of energy and nerves as if they carry the signal that comes from your cell phone signal tower and travel to your cell phone. If there is some kind of blockage that interferes with that signal, what would you expect to see on your cell phone screen?  Thinking along the same lines, what would you expect to happen if something was interfering with your Chi or Nerve flow?

The more severe the interference, the greater the impact on your health. The more your body struggles to adapt to your life, the more health challenges you have and the more serious those challenges are. 

Our objective is simple...to locate, analyze and correct ANY interference to the flow of Energy (Chi) and/or Nervous System communication to the body. 

 

How Do We Know?

There are 3 signs that are clear indicators of whether someone is a good fit for our care:

  • Presence of Neuropathophysiology using Infrared Thermography Pattern Analysis
  • Presence of Neuromuscular Stress using Surface Electromyography Pattern Analysis
  • Misalignment and Structural Shift evident on Digital Spinal Radiographs

 

Common Solutions

Just like there is more than one way to cook an egg, there are a variety of ways to approach care. More often than not, the first step for most people is prescription medication. If that doesn't work out, the next step is usually physical therapy and rehabilitation, followed by injections to help reduce inflammation and pain. In many cases, when those other options don't work out, more invasive procedures are recommended. Our goal is NOT to give you our opinion about those options, but to offer you another path.

We offer a gentle, natural option where the goal is to actually get your body to a point where it is healing itself and is more capable of dealing with every day life without continuously breaking down.
