When people first meet me, it’s very easy to draw conclusions like, “Dr. Bill, you have it easy, you’ve probably always been super healthy, and have always practiced and preached a healthy lifestyle.”
As a Chiropractor, it’s very common for people to view me this way. The truth is, like any good story, I had to work really hard to get to where I am today. The truth is health, happiness, and wholeness aren’t destinations and you never arrive! All healthy things are processes that require time, attention and have no finish line!
So let’s talk about my starting line…
At one time in my life I was actually a fairly sick individual. My childhood was spent with seasonal allergies, asthma, sore throats, common colds and plenty of missed days from school. I had a “puffer” and it was my good friend of mine. When I did miss school I wasn’t too upset cause I always had a few good video games around, but it is not normal to miss multiple days of school year after over year!
I became much more interested in health while in high school. I found myself drawn to the idea that our choices ultimately build us up or break us down. I started working out regularly, running and lifting weights. I started to question my personal and families food choices. My physical body changed, but I still had some breathing issues, allergies, sinus infections every winter, low immune system and now I was starting to even experience pain!
The first time I ever went to a chiropractor was because I was in such debilitating pain that I could barely get out of bed, and my mom had to help me move, and even walk! The morning I woke up in debilitating pain my mother decided to take me to a chiropractor instead of taking me to the ER for pain medication. Chiropractic worked and it worked right away for me! For the next 6 years, I utilized chiropractic care for natural pain relief, and to me, it was amazing! Listen, if all your looking for is pain relief chiropractic fine, chiropractic can get you that, but you need to know, it’s actually so much more!
While attending Indiana University of PA majoring in special education, I developed debilitating panic attacks. Anxiety attacks so bad that for 30 days straight I believed I was going to die each day. These panic attacks paralyzed me. I wasn’t able to drink coffee, go for a run, or pretty much do anything that made my heart rate speed up. I would spiral out of control in to a full blown panic attack. I was hospitalized, I saw neurologists, cardiologists, ear nose and throat doctors, had MRI’s, MRA’s, ultrasounds, x-rays, and my testing all came back fine. I was definitely NOT fine. Without understanding other treatment options, I went the medical route for the next year and took anti-depressants to curb my anxiety, but this did not completely fix my problem.
Shortly thereafter I woke up in pain, and this time like many times I woke up with pain, I knew what to do, the chiropractor! Except this time was different, the chiropractor listened to me. I told him about the anxiety, I told him about my sinuses, allergies, asthma, I told him about the medication and he showed me how these complaints could be connected to disfunction within my nerve system! Nerve system? What’s that?
It’s your brain, spinal cord, and all the nerves of your body. It controls every vital function that is occurring inside of you right now and it’s completely encased in bone, aka your skull and spine!!
And guess what happened next? I began to heal!
There was no need to take the medication. My body and mind felt different. I experienced “better days”. After being under chiropractic care for 6 months, I had no breathing issues. There were NO more panic attacks. Even my athletic performance improved!
Based on this blessed relief, I was inspired to go to chiropractic school. Chiropractic suddenly focused my attention and mission. It transformed my whole life. Now, I am both an upper cervical chiropractic practitioner, have opened multiple upper cervical chiropractic offices, and am also an upper cervical chiropractic instructor, sharing this vitalizing process with others!
