What is the Activator Method Chiropractic Technique? 2017-01-27T16:19:57+00:00
The Activator Method Chiropractic Technique is a gentle, low-force approach to chiropractic care. The technique has been used safely on patients of all ages since the late 1960s, bringing relief to people with a variety of health concerns.

Incorporating the latest advances in orthopedic, neurological and chiropractic examinations, this unique system of administering spinal adjustments using research-based analysis and the Activator Adjusting Instrument can help restore spinal balance safely and comfortably.

Because of its effectiveness and gentle nature, the Activator Method has grown to become the world’s most widely-used instrument chiropractic technique.

How does the Activator Method work? 2017-01-27T16:19:57+00:00
Restoring spinal balance safely and successfully has been the driving force behind the Activator Method Chiropractic Technique.

The technique utilizes specific protocols to detect spinal joint dysfunction, analyze leg length inequality, identify issues with body mechanics, and test neurological reflexes. By analyzing results of these examinations, an Activator doctor can initiate the process of restoring spinal balance in the patient, gently and effectively.

The Activator Adjusting Instrument is the tool more doctors choose to deliver low-force chiropractic adjustments. This unique hand-held instrument has been studied extensively with results published in hundreds of peer-reviewed research papers, and was designed to give patients a specific and gentle adjustment.

The Activator provides a controlled, fast thrust that is comfortable to the patient. In fact, adjustments with the Activator are so quick and measured, the body’s muscles are less likely to resist, allowing for a more precise and accurate adjustment.

Is the Activator Method right for you? 2017-01-27T16:19:57+00:00
Patients of all ages can enjoy the benefits of an Activator adjustment. The technique is especially helpful for children who sometimes have trouble lying still. The Activator adjustment is so quick and comfortable, children often look forward to their next visit!

Older patients, or those with arthritis, osteoporosis or other bone-weakening conditions find the Activator Method to be effective and gentle. The low force thrust of the Activator Adjusting Instrument, and the ability to pinpoint the exact location of the problem through Activator analysis, can relieve a patient’s pain without discomfort.

What is Designed Clinical Nutrition? 2017-01-27T16:19:57+00:00
Designed Clinical Nutrition is defined as:

Designed: Especially prepared for you, based on a specific plan.

Clinical: Pertaining to the results achieved in clinical use on a multitude of patients over many years.

Nutrition: Real food, as designed by Nature, to enable the body to repair itself and become healthier.

After you receive your analysis, you will get a specifically designed nutrition program, based off the information your body provides.

Most programs include dietary suggestions (as well as whole food supplements) to aid your body in healing itself.

Concentrated whole food supplements are used. These have been prepared by a unique process that preserves all of the active enzymes and vital components.

How do I know which supplements are right for me? 2017-01-27T16:19:57+00:00
After we identify the underlying reason your body is creating symptoms, we can isolate and verify the precise whole food supplements (and quantities) your body needs to resolve its problems. Our goal is to have you take as few supplements as possible, with your body being fully addressed and restored at the same time.
What are “whole foods?” 2017-01-27T16:19:57+00:00
Whole food is defined as “food that has undergone very little processing and has been grown or produced without the use of synthetic pesticides or fertilizers.”

A good example is carrots. Carrots are rich in vitamin A complex. A “complex” is something made up of different parts which work together. Synthetic vitamins do not contain the whole complex (as found in Nature).

If testing indicated a vitamin A deficiency, we would look for a whole food high in vitamin A complex (and carrots would be a likely source). A supplement rich in this complex would then be included in your program. We pride ourselves on only usingthe highest quality whole food supplements available.

Whole food supplements are entirely derived from specific whole foods, organically grown and prepared in such a way that preserves their vital enzymes and vitamins; making them the optimum vitamin-mineral products.

Now in incredibly concentrated form, your body can get complete nutrition from this small tablet! By restoring the nutrition on which your body was founded, it is possible to enable your body to heal itself… just as Nature intended.

I thought I ate well… 2017-01-27T16:19:57+00:00
Although deficiencies may be due to illness, it is likely that other factors may be contributing to the problem also, some of which may be contained in the food you eat every day.

A few factors typical of the “food” commercially available in all grocery stores and restaurants:

  • Microwaving
  • Food Coloring
  • Flash Freezing
  • Genetic Engineering
  • Synthetic Additives
  • Preservatives
  • Hormones and Antibiotics (found in meat, chicken, etc.)
  • Produce grown in soil that has been robbed of its nutrients
  • Harmful chemicals and metals (such as pcb’s and mercury in some fish)
Can’t I just eat better? 2017-01-27T16:19:57+00:00
There has been a drastic decline in the quality of food over the past 70 years, resulting in a nation of sick people who are dependent on pharmaceutical drugs. Your body’s function is founded on nourishment from the environment (which until recently did not include heavy metals, toxic chemicals and pesticides).

Current food conditions make it next to impossible to get all of the nutritional components your body requires to heal and/or maintain resiliency.

How long will it take for me to start feeling healthy again? 2017-01-27T16:19:57+00:00
Each case is handled on an individual basis. The majority of patients who adhere to their programs have reported noticing positive changes in the first 4 to 6 weeks (some longer, and some sooner). Your improvements is directly proportional to the adherence to your program.
Do I have to stay on a Designed Clinical Nutrition regimen forever? 2017-01-27T16:19:57+00:00
Through the course of your program additional layers will show up. For example, if you have a long term health problem, you may find that your body may (or may not) want to address this first. Your body will dictate its priority each time you are tested.

When its priority problem is handled with correct nutrients, your next test may reveal another major issue (which may have been long hidden and unhandled).

As this happens, we will adjust your program. Our goal is to have you on as few supplements as possible.

Good dietary habits will always be encouraged. If you continue poor habits, this will perpetuate ill health and inhibit your body’s natural ability to heal itself.

As you feel better and your health improves, you will likely find yourself wanting to maintain a well balanced and healthy diet as your normal routine.

How do I get a designed Clinical Nutrition Program? 2017-01-27T16:19:57+00:00
As a Nutrition Response Testing patient, you will receive an individualized program based on the results of your analysis. The program will match the exact needs of your body through diet and nutritional supplementation.

The elements in your personal Designed Clinical Nutrition Program are nutrients that your body is not currently receiving and/or assimilating.

What is Nutrition Response Testing? 2017-01-27T16:19:58+00:00
Nutrition Response Testing is a non-invasive system of analyzing the body to determine
the underlying causes of ill or non-optimum health.

Our clinically proven system may be quite different from any other healing practice that
you may have experienced.

We will have some questions for you before and during the testing. The actual
procedure is simple and direct, with the body providing all of the information and
feedback needed. We use the extraordinary properties of the human cells and tissues to
bring about healing and health changes… exactly as Nature intended.

The body responds to the procedure reliably and consistently. This feedback is so
precise that it opens the door to a safe and lasting recovery, even in cases where
everything else has failed.

With Nutrition Response Testing, what are you actually testing? 2017-01-27T16:19:58+00:00
Through our analysis, we are testing your body’s neurological reflexes. These reflexes are the body’s way of telling us what and how your nervous system is doing – as it is the nervous system’s responsibility to regulate the body’s functions for each and every organ. The testing includes organs, glands, joints, muscles, etc.

These reflexes are tested on the surface of the body and then the findings are analyzed.

How do you get the body’s reflex information? 2017-01-27T16:19:58+00:00
Energy flows exist between all parts and organs of the body. These flows can become disrupted for a variety of reasons. This disruption is easily discovered with our testing.

As a Nutrion Response Testing practitioner, we will do a full body scan to properly assess each of your reflexes.

Dr. Bomback will do the analysis by contacting your extended arm with one hand, and contact the specific reflex area with the other hand. If the tested reflex is stressed, your nervous system will respond by reducing energy to the extended arm (which will weaken and cause it to drop). A drop in the arm indicates underlying stress or dysfunction in that area which can be affecting your health.

Once the underlying stress is corrected, this weak muscle response will no longer occur.

Since we use the body directly for analysis, (versus doing lab tests) it is faster and it tends to be just as (if not more) accurate. There are also no huge expensive machines, no drugs, surgery, nasty needles or laboratory fees to cover.

Following your consultation you will be given results in a way that you can understand, with a specific nutritional program to follow.

How soon will I see improvement? 2017-01-27T16:19:58+00:00
Although every case is different, we often hear enthusiastic reports from patients in as little as 4-6 weeks. The fastest recoveries are often from those who have most closely adhered to their recommended nutritional program.
Is it important to stick to the plan? 2017-01-27T16:19:58+00:00
Generally chronic health problems do not suddenly develop overnight. They develop over a long period of time (often years) with improper diet (which cause nutritional deficiencies and imbalances) and environmental influences. All of which have gotten you into your current health condition.

Therefore, the sooner and more thoroughly you implement your program, the sooner you will start to see results. While on the program, if you continue those same old habits and routines that contributed to your current condition, your body’s condition may not improve as you hope. Total commitment to your program is strongly urged.

What are my chances for recovery? 2017-01-27T16:19:58+00:00
Our long-term experience in a wide variety of cases tells us the first thing we must determine is whether or not you are a “Nutrition Response Testing Case.” If someone is NOT a “Nutrition Response Testing Case” then it is unlikely that Nutrition Response Testing will ever help you. However, if you ARE a “Nutrition Response Testing Case,” then in our experience, it is our belief that nothing else will help you as much.
What happens next? 2017-01-27T16:19:58+00:00
While you are on your own designed clinical nutrition program, you will continue on your health recovery process.

We will continue to monitor your progress and adjust your program as needed when additional layers show up.

This procedure will assist you in attaining the maximum possible health benefits and get the real underlying health issues handled.
