By Dr. Amanda Chan, D.C.

You exercise regularly, you eat a well-balanced plant-based diet and you meditate frequently…you do “everything” to be “healthy” and yet something is still missing.  It just isn’t enough. You know that your body has the capacity to function at a higher level, physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.  So, how to do you from where you are now to where you ultimately want to be?  Continue reading to discover my Three Secrets to Long-Lasting Health.

Secret #1: A Change in Perspective

Albert Einstein once said “We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.” This is true of your pain, stress and symptoms.  If you want to end your pain and what you’ve been doing so far hasn’t been working for you, the first thing you’re going to have to do is open your mind to changing how you think about your pain!

This could be similar to when you made the switch to a plant-based ifestyle.  If you were like me, you used to eat meat at some point, then there was a change in perspective that caused you to switch.

Pain can mean different things to different people.  For some, pain is seen as an annoyance.  For others, it is something to be scared of and when they’re in pain, they feel powerless or like a victim.  Some people believe they have nothing to do with the pain at all and that their life was going along “just fine” until the pain showed up to ruin their life!  There are others who gain a sense of significance because when they are in pain, they get more love and attention.  So, how did you think about your pain?

Secret #2: The Body and Mind Connection

Dr. Candance Pert’s research found that the brain, nervous, endocrine, and immune system all function as a unit sending messages back and forth.  That is to say, your mind and your body depend on each other to work together.

So, when you open your mind to a new perspective, your body also becomes more receptive to “feeling” the parts of you that have been ignored, avoided or blamed.

Secret #3: Network Spinal Analysis (NSA)

This is an extremely unorthodox yet highly effective non-invasive method for ending pain, increasing energy and building body awareness.

NSA is a body-centered method that helps people predictably transform their lives.  It’s practiced by chiropractors but there’s no cracking or popping.  NSA is a discipline that uses gentle contacts, not much more pressure than you would put on your closed eyelid, along the spine to create higher brain awareness of the tension that builds in your body due to stresses in your life.  A Network session helps you connect to this tension and release it.

Even if you eat a well-balanced plant based diet, workout regularly and meditate, your body can still be reacting to past physical, emotional and mental stress that you can’t seem to shake.  NSA shifts people’s bodies and minds out of “stress mode” so they are more receptive to change, less reactive and more open to possibility.

Dr. Amanda Chan is trained as a chiropractor and now practices Network Spinal Analysis exclusively. She holds workshops each month on various topics related to stress, personal and spiritual growth.  Please check the workshop schedule at www.wisdominyou.ca.
