Dyanne Van Der Kamp: My Journey To A Healthy Weight – My 10th Week – Back With Dr. Brian Ross!

Hi, it’s Dyanne and I’d like to continue with another show with my friend and Chiropractor, Dr. Brian Ross from Calabasas, CA.

Here’s Dr. Ross in his own words:  

DVK-Dr. Brian #2 show_borderThere are three causes of a fixation or a bone that has moved out of its normal position. That fixation can be virtually anywhere in the body.  It doesn’t have to be the back or neck or lower back.  It could be a shoulder, elbow, wrist, knee or even ankle and foot.

The first cause of a bone moving out of its normal position is stress.  Stress  may be coming from home, work, and school or even driving down the freeway in heavy traffic.  The stress hormone is called Cortisol which  tightens up the blood vessels in the body and causes an increase in blood pressure.

The blood pressure increase is to prepare the body for “fight or flight”.  Muscles become very tense and the tension can easily pull one or more bones out of its original position and can cause uneven alignment of the body.

The second cause of a misalignment is physical. For example cleaning out your garage, carrying heavy packages, bending or twisting   Also exercising too vigorously or performing exercises the wrong way.

The third cause is chemical.  Eating foods that have MSG like in Chinese food or processed foods that have a lot of chemical additives and preservatives.  These chemicals can cause muscles to contract especially if the body is out of alignment.  Chemicals can cause muscle spasms which can move a bone out of its correct position.  Chemicals can also trigger pain and inflammation.  The good news is that by getting your alignment checked on a regular basis by a chiropractor you can avoid the above conditions.

Whenever there is an injury to the body, the physiology of the repair of the body is always the same. This is represented by the “Three Phases of Care”.

Three Phases of Care:

The first phase of care is when you realize that you have been injured in some way.

The second phase of care is when the structure starts to come back  (bones that have moved out of position and start to realign with chiropractic care. This may involve the neck, back, shoulder, knees, ankle feet etc.) Bones will start to move back into their original position.  Ligaments normally hold the bones together also start to come back to normal position.

The third phase of care is the strengthening of ligaments and they start to hold the bones.  Muscles will then come back to their normal position.  Once you’ve gone through the strengthening phase your body will feel more powerful and will give you the most miles per gallon. The ability to optimize the bodies ability to function at a higher level.  The body has now repaired itself.

Postural correction:  When the neck goes forward from either an accident or working on the computer too many hours it reverses the curvature of the neck.  When the neck is straightened it is termed a reversal of the neck curve. This puts a lot of pressure on the upper back and you may wind up getting a Dowagers hump on the upper back. Postural correction can reverse this condition.

Structure leads to function.  One of the tools to reverse that situation would be a good foam cervical pillow such as a Tempur-pedic.  In order to use the pillow properly you have to set the foam up.  You have to roll the pillow three times in one direction and then three times in the other direction and the foam is ready for you to sleep on.  Your body heat will activate the foam.

Nutrition:  When you are going through a postural correction you need to support the body with proper nutrition.  Most commercial vitamins are synthetic.  The supplementation that I provide is a nutraceutical.  Medical foods that the body utilizes 100%.   With proper nutrition the body can manufacture all the cells that it needs to build replacement tissue.

Dyanne Van Der Kamp: My Journey To A Healthy Weight – My 9th Week – And Introducing Dr. Brian Ross!

 

Hi, it’s Dyanne and I’d like to introduce you to my friend and Chiropractor, Dr. Brian Ross from Calabasas to talk with you about how he’s been helping me. 

Here’s Dr. Ross in his own words:

DRROSS1_border2My story is from a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away (25 years ago)  I was in another job and  part of my job was to take measurements on buildings and  verifying the type of construction used in the building.   My job required that I take photos of the buildings.

I was using an older style camera with a view finder and was backing out into the street to fit the building inside the viewfinder and suddenly a car hit me and flipped me over the car onto the pavement and the driver took off.  I was taken to the hospital.

I had lost the feeling in my legs and the orthopedic came over to talk to me and he said I do not know I’m going to give you some medication and I’m going to have a neurologist also evaluate you.  Next  the neurologist saw me and he also said he did not know. The hospital sent me home with lots of medications on Workers Compensation and little hope.

I stayed down for 6 weeks.  So the next question was “what do I do now”?

My friends came over and dragged me kicking and screaming to a chiropractor.   The chiropractor explained that she might get back 80% of my feeling but couldn’t guarantee 100%   I said  “I am  yours”.  Nine months later all the feeling returned to my legs.

The chiropractor said, “You should do this”.

I knew I wanted to be able to give the same gift to others.   I returned back to school (at night) and completed pre-med curriculum and gained admittance to chiropractic school.  It took 10 years in total to become a chiropractor.  They say chiropractic is not a profession that you choose sometimes it chooses you.  I am different than most other chiropractors that are out there today.  The scariest day in my life was when the orthopedic and the neurologist both said “I don’t know”.  I will never forget that and it is served me well when I complete a history and consultation with a patient.  I know what it is like to be the patient.

I take no shortcuts I always spend at least 1 hour carrying out a complete physical exam on every patient.  I usually request a set of x-rays in order to see what is going on with the body structure.   I will find out what is going on with and will complete a full diagnosis along with a treatment plan to resolve the problem.

It is important to treat the body holistically.  I treat the whole body from the feet to the head on every visit.  This opens up the nervous system.  This allows the brain to reconnect with the bodies nervous system.  If the nervous system is relaying information to the body then the body can heal from the inside out.  Another interesting fact is  the nervous system runs the immune system.  If you have an open nervous system you will have an optimal immune system.  I always tell my patients that when they have an open nervous system “Your Power Is On!”
