I am Dr. Chris Chapman, I am a NUCCA chiropractor. I have practiced NUCCA in Provo, Utah since 1998 and am most grateful to have had the opportunity to have helped many people with their various health challenges, many of who had not found answers anywhere else. I chose the name “The Mending Path” as the name of my Blog because healing, more often than not, is a journey. And any journey needs to start with the simple hope of reaching ones destination. We have allheard people speak of “the road to recovery”, and we seem to innately
understand that when we are healing, we are moving in a direction of
improvement… that we are in a process of getting better, not worse. Whether you
have just begun your healing journey, or whether you have been in the process
for many years, we hope you find encouraging words of wisdom, support and answers to your questions on my blog.
Those who have not felt that their underlying health issues are being addressed, understood or even recognized might find the answers and hope here over the next months as ideas and comments are posted. http://themendingpath.wordpress.com/
The more complicated the health problem, the more complex the needed healing resource. One resource that could be more readily tapped into is: our body’s own healing capability. A simple example of this ability is found in the old fable of the mouse pulling the thorn out of the lions paw. Healing was somehow being held back until the simple little thorn was removed. Simple, but powerful. Imagine, locating the cause, then removing it...
In our present "big pharma" influenced health system, "solutions to our health problems" come in little white bags from the pharmacy, which often mask or palliate symptoms rather than getting to underlying causes. Thus, the underlying problem—the “thorn in our own paws” can remain hidden indefinitely.
Therefore, finding the path to getting well can be obscure, particularly if a focus on symptomatic treatment prevails over a successful search for cause. In some cases that path to healing can be obscured by conflicting philosophies and preconceived notions which can produce widely variant diagnoses. There is much confusion today, as practitioners divide up the pie of human suffering—and that confusion permeates our society and affects each one of us.
How does one find the way? This blog, The Mending Path, will provide a platform where ideas about healing can be logically and plainly presented and discussed. i don't have all the answers, but I have discovered simple, powerful solutions to vexing health problems by looking to cause rather than symptom management. My intent is to provide a collection of ideas that make sense. It is my hope that a rational array of intelligence will emerge as this blog develops. But I need your help. I need your questions and your input. I will try to help you understand your symptoms and offer you a refreshing “second opinion”, and hopefully, you will begin to understand more fully your symptoms picture and what those symptoms mean—and how they can be resolved, not covered up. We want to provide you with the knowledge of how to become well—and, how to stay well. There is a better way. That “better way” has worked for thousands of my patients, resulting in less suffering and lower costs.
At NUCCA Spinal Centers, we have found the "thorn in the lions paw", and we know how to remove it so the body can embark on the mending path.
