In addition to being regular and consistent in your office visits, you can further support your process by doing the following:
1. Attend one of our monthly Health Talks held on Monday nights at 7:15pm. The more that you know about your body and what to expect in care, the faster you will heal. This is your opportunity to learn more about yourself and to ask questions. Also, you are encouraged to bring a family member or guest to support you in your healing process.
2. Listen to the wisdom of your body. The communication lines between you and your inner wisdom are opening more and more with each Network adjustment, as each one builds upon the last. Honor your body’s requests for rest, nourishment, and attention. Try going to sleep when you first get the cue that you are tired. Your body heals when you sleep. Eat wholesome foods. You may wish to avoid or reduce sugar, caffeine, alcohol, and processed foods, which toxify the nervous system.
3. We highly recommend the book The 12 Stages of Healing by Donald Epstein, D.C., the founder and developer of Network Spinal Analysis and Somato-Respiratory Integration. Stage 1 and 2 exercises correspond to Level 1 of care. Reading the first two chapters and practicing these exercises at home will help you in your progressions through the levels of care. We may do some of the stages of healing with you during your adjustment time to help you connect to your body more fully.
