 Our Featured Practice Member: Sally Ramirez-Warren


When I first came to the office I was recovering from a minor car accident. My neck was stiff, my lower back and my legs were out of joint and I just didn’t have the energy or freedom of movement in my body that I knew I deserved.

In a few short months of ABC care, I am amazed at how much taller I am standing and am discovering a range of motion in my whole body that I had only dreamed possible.

I am a singer and for me to breathe deeply, easily and efficiently is important. I didn’t realize how easy breathing could be, and I have even discovered a few more high notes in my range!

I highly recommend ABC chiropractic at the Spinal Wellness Center for anyone seeking chiropractic care or to improve their overall well-being.

 Fish Oil, Anti-Oxidants and Minerals Help Acne as Well as Mood

anti-oxidantsThe number of inflammatory lesions in a study of acne patients decreased from 20.8 lesions to 6.8 lesions within 2 months. The patients were given an omega-3 supplement containing 1000mg of the EPA ingredient found in fish. They were also given selenium, chromium, zinc and phytochemicals from green tea. These patients also noted a 24% improvement in mental, social and emotional well-being during that time.

The study’s authors noted that communities with high levels of omega 3 in their diets have low levels of acne. And of 1000 teenagers, those consuming the largest amounts of fish had significantly less acne lesions.

Chiropractic and lowered blood pressureEvery once in a great while, something enlightening appears on national TV regarding chiropractic. This is a great segment from “Good Morning America” on the (2008?) study that showed that properly administered upper cervical chiropractic adjustments dramatically lowered high blood pressure long term. The ABC medical correspondent (bless his open-mindedness) gives the story a fair-minded treatment.
When you get to the underlying CAUSE of a problem, the problem goes away and it does not come back. The reduction of high blood pressure is a very common occurrence in our office.

An Automobile Accident AFTER COMPLETION OF CAREDr. Jerry Porter in Spokane, WA is an excellent ABC™ doctor, the developer of the seat wedges we sell here at SWC, and the creator of the informational ABC™ newsletter that you can sign up for at www.new-chiropractic-solutions.com.   This great illustrative story is from the Feb. ’04 issue.
The point he discusses below is something I have witnessed many times in persons who have completed the care plan.   —-Dr. Pierre

An Automobile Accident  AFTER COMPLETION OF CARE!

ONE OF THE MANY benefits you’ll get from receiving the ABC™ method of body correction is that when you are finished with your regular visits, it becomes MUCH HARDER to mess your body up again.
This story gives you an idea of just how resilient the body becomes when it functions properly.

A 20 year old patient had completed our recommended program of care and was released from regular visits. About a month later, she was in an auto accident. She was going 55 mph on a 2-lane highway when she lost control of her car. She swerved left and then over-corrected back to the right. She then went over the edge of the road and down an embankment about 20 feet.

The front end of the care hit at the bottom of the hill and then the car flipped, END OVER END, and landed upside down, crushed from above. She was cut loose from her harness by people that came to help. She wasn’t bleeding anywhere and, other than being shook up, didn’t feel too bad.

I treated her later that day. Then three more times TOTAL before she was able to be released from regular care.

Had her body NOT been fixed already then any new injuries would have been ADDED ONTO an already “messed up” body. It could easily have taken a year or more to undo all of these new injuries.
The way she tells it is that the worst thing that happened to her was that she broke a couple of fingernails.

July Core-Strengthening Class 
Tentatively scheduled for Thursday, July 23;  noon to 1:15 PM.
(Call or ask at front desk) 

Learn an amazing ab/core strengthening program in a small group setting.  Previous attendees have raved about it.

“These seven exercises are absolutely wonderful: energizing, gentle and individual. I’ve been using them every morning and my chiropractic care has hugely benefited as well as my daily routine.” Kate, age 26.

“The exercises I learned at Dr. Pierre’s core strengthening class have been increasing my progress in chiropractic care. I feel more energized and stronger each day. My breathing is easier and deeper. After the 7 moves my head is clear and ready for the day.” MJ, age 50. 

If you spend 5 to 15 minutes a day doing these fun exercises, you can completely transform how you feel and function for the rest of your life.

In 30 years of looking, this is the best and most fun way to improve your core strength. This class is for anyone who wants to:

  • eliminate most forms of residual back pain.
  • speed up and enhance the transformation of their spine via the ABC unwinding process.
  • Greatly enhance their body’s FUNCTIONAL strength for any type of activity.
  • Look and feel like a million bucks!
To sign up for this  70-minute class, please CALL the office at 277-2570. The cost for these small classes, where I make sure you “get it” is $20.

I know that most men, including those at ease with problems of the greatest complexity, can seldom accept even the simplest and most obvious truth if it would oblige them to admit the falsity of conclusions which they have delighted in explaining to colleagues, proudly taught to others, and which they have woven, thread by thread, into the fabric of their lives.
