Chiropractic & Whole Health

I met with a chiropractor today. It was my first time and I was really pleased that I picked the office I picked. Dr. Boynton is focused on the whole body and looked at every piece of information I brought him. For those of you with the option, get a copy of your LUCY Record.

According to my primary physician’s office, the LUCY Record is:

… a portable copy of your allergies, medications, current health issues, procedures, test results, and immunizations from MyChart. You can put your Lucy record on a USB drive and take it with you to share with your other healthcare providers.

I printed mine and took it with me. Doc read it cover to cover. We talked about various test results and his concern with the use of the word “normal” to describe a range. With so many people in America not healthy, he explained, “normal isn’t good.” The average scores are terrible, medically speaking.  I plan to take additional reports with me next time I go in, showing historical numbers so that we can figure out what my normal is and how to get me to “optimum” instead of this current state of blob.

I am excited about having a new member of my healthcare team, especially one who listens to me and looks at the WHOLE me before deciding on a course of action.

If you are in Cincinnati, I recommend checking his website out and stopping in for a visit. Tell him I sent you!

About Mandy

I love to dance, enjoy a glass of wine, ski and even run and work out. I enjoy spending time doing anything fun I can find to do. Explore and enjoy! My personal statement on my birthday last year... I promise to live, laugh and love. I know it will hurt sometimes, but I will no longer hide myself from things out of fear. Instead I will face them, and even embrace them as they will inevitably make me stronger. I will love, even where there may be no prospect of the return of love. I will laugh instead of cry. I will live, truly LIVE in the world I have around me, making sure to experience new things and people whenever possible. I will stop and smell the roses. I will let go of things that are not critical to life and will relax my expectations of the world.
