Preview: Health Beyond Medicine – A Chiropractic Miracle by Dr. Scott Paton DC, MS, ATC

Paton_cover_2

After miscellaneous mishaps – car accidents, karate moves gone wrong, jumping from boats to docks, as well as working in back straining jobs – waitress and housekeeper, I have had many uses for a chiropractor. I have been fortunate enough to have had several really wonderful chiropractors and a friend whom have adjusted me many times in the past. Each saved me from weeks on my back and more pain. So I am an advocate of the practice. This book however appears to take it one step further as a source of reestablishing and maintaining health. I am however a bit skeptical of this perspective but thought that this book could be enlightening. So I accepted it from the author’s publicist Shelby from Phenix and Phenix. Thank you Shelby.

About the Book from the author’s website:

When his infant son’s life was threatened by a medical condition that the hospital physicians couldn’t diagnose, chiropractor Dr. Scott Paton took matters into his own hands.
Taking a chance, he decided to apply a gentle chiropractic technique that ended up restoring his baby’s health. But unfortunately, these treatments are dismissed by those who reject unconventional medicine.
The US ranks a distant (and disgraceful) thirty-seventh in healthcare, according the World Health Organization. The reason? Western medical practices focus on prescription medications that mask symptoms rather than address the illness. This system is dangerously eroding our health and putting children at serious risk…but Dr. Paton has an alternative solution.
Health Beyond Medicine: A Chiropractic Miracle gives a detailed examination of:

  • The five secrets to superior health and longevity
  • Modern medicine as it is practiced today
  • Case studies of chiropractic treatment
  • Specific techniques that can change your life

Now is the time to take control over our lives and guarantee our own healthy, happy and secure futures. After all, true wellbeing comes from inside the body - not from inside a bottle.

A study states that chiropractic treatment can be an option for parents who have a colic baby but only if they wish to. It may soothe baby's discomfort as long as it is done correctly to avoid harm to the baby.

Not sure about this remedy, since I am a not a medical professional but I love to get chiropractic adjustments so a little one may feel relief as well.
Thanks for the comment!
