The fight appeared to be a losing battle with sinus drainage, mucus, pressure. As a child, before modern allergy testing was a common medical test, I remember blowing my nose almost constantly at certain times of the year. Although green mucus was not a problem, as I grew up things didn’t get much better. But one day I came to the realization that I did not have to spend the rest of my life wearing out handkerchiefs. So I began to be open to ideas.
We were living at the time in California and a friend of mine, noticing my sinus misery, asked me if I had gone to see a chiropractor about my sinus problems, I said no. Then he told me about this story about how chiropractic had helped him solve some other health issues he had. Frankly, what I had heard about chiropractic had not been the most favorable. After some serious cogitation, nevertheless, I decided to go see the one my friend had gone to.
I still remember that first visit as if it were last week. I waited my turn–the waiting room was packed with people, some had come from other states just to see Dr. Z. Space does not allow for a full detailed account of the visit, but I can assure you it was the most interesting visit to see a health professional I ever had. In a nut shell this is what happened:
The doctor asked me if I wanted to have done the procedure he had described, I said yes. He laid me down on a special table and swung over my head a machine that looked to me like a drill press, but instead of having a bit at the end it had a metal devise with a rubber tip. The contraption tip was placed on the “right spot” and while he was talking to me he pressed a button and compressed air pushed the rubber tip onto that spot in a fraction of a second. I had just been “adjusted.”
The theory behind the adjustment is that some misaligned bone on the back can exert pressure on the nerves running through the spinal cord. This robs the nerves from delivering their vital nerve energy to the various organs, etc., and thereby causes them to malfunction. The latter reveals itself in symptoms of various kinds which regular medicine does not know what is causing them–pain, green mucus,discomfort, cramping, malfunctioning of the immune system, etc., etc. My verdict on this chiropractic procedure I will summarize thus: This story happened to me a number of years ago. Since then I have had my back re-checked every so often, and when needed readjusted, ever since. It is a step in the right direction to put the body in a better position to deal with whatever is causing your sinus drainage, green mucus, or whatever sinus issue, by using its own defense mechanisms properly tuned.
