Tongue Tie
Developmental Issue
Why and Why Now?

This blog post is sponsored by @AhliaYoga: Join Ahlia for her meditations and yoga practices on YouTube

I asked the question, “Are you seeing more tongue tie, lip tie or other developmental issues in babies lately?” on the MC2 Facebook Forum and there were lots of replies to the affirmative. I then asked, “why and why now” and many replied with their thoughts-worth reviewing-go to the forum (if not a member, simply ask to join).

There was sufficient give and take and, I’m curious if you’re seeing this in your practice too. And, if so, please share your thoughts about why and why now.
 
Dr. Dan and I decided to do a FB Live and you’re invited to watch the replay here.

There were also lots of kudos from the last edition on having a Happiness Driven practice. Thank you and also please feel free to share your thoughts too. My office email is [email protected]

Last thought-it’s not what you can afford to do. It’s what you’re comfortable doing!

Ask MORE questions! I’d love to help-just give me a shout.

Do You Have and
Do You Want A
Happiness Driven Practice?

This blog post is sponsored by @AhliaYoga: Join Ahlia for her meditations and yoga practices on YouTube

There are many PRACTICE DRIVERS. Practices can be driven by statistics, by purpose, by altruism and more. Yet, somewhere along the line, especially (in my experience) among the more successful practitioners, having the freedom to have a HAPPINESS driven practice is the ShangriLa in practice so many seek.
 
And, there is no quid-pro-quo. There is no neediness. There is no model other than for each individual practitioner to make a determination of what drives their own happiness. So, what brings you the most JOY in your practice?

For me, it was a practice full of people that:
Got it
Were fun
Paid
Brought their families
Respected my time and talent
Referred people more than conditions
Wanted to develop their health
Kept their appointments
 
What are your determinants? If you already “had it all in practice” what would drive your joy? Here are some other suggestions to consider:
Not accept all prospective new patients
Do not do recall
Only accept new aptients by referral
Play the music that YOU LIKE
Work the hours that YOU LOVE
That your level of busy-ness allows you to deliver the quality of care you want
You could not wait to get to the office
You had a staff that would never leave you
 
This is all possible and its all possible at ANY TIME since few of these characteristics are dependent on your income. SECRET: the fastest way to afford it is to just do it!

Last thought – it’s not what you can afford to do. It’s what you’re comfortable doing!

FREE MC2 INTRO VIDEO:Discipline and Adaptability!
This blog post is sponsored by @AhliaYoga: Join Ahlia for her meditations and yoga practices on YouTube

While there are sometimes common themes to a day’s coaching calls, this was never been more evident than yesterday. Easily 3/4 of my calls brought up and dealt with, in one way, shape or form, the subject of DISCIPLINE and its importance.
 
Generally speaking, discipline is the ability to do what needs to be done in order to accomplish what you say you want to accomplish. It is, in essense, the willingness to put “your money where your mouth is.” It’s oof critical importance because a lack of discipline slowly erodes one’s personal power whereas the discipline to do what you say you will do when you say you will do it is how one grows their personal power.
 
Why drives discipline then? A clear WHAT you want with an even BIGGER WHY you want that. The secret sauce is a WILLINGNESS TO HAVE what you say you want. So, its a combination of VISION, MOTIVATION and DESIRE….true DESIRE.
 
So, what’s the problem? Without getting into an entire coaching call and diatribe here, the fundamental issue is BELIEF. And, the predominant belief in those wanting, but not having, the discipline to stay the course, is a deep seated-often unconscious belief that one is somehow damaged and unworthy of more.
 
Your Discipline is often mirrrored by your practice members. The more disciplined you are, the more they will believe and believe in you. Their growing personal power is the root of their compliance and recovery. To grow their health BEYOND relief, they must adopt a more disciplined lifestyle!
 
And, in so doing, together with you, they get to expand their range of ADAPTABILITY to past, current and presumed future stress. THAT is the evolutionary NEXT step for you, your practice and your community.
 
This is such an important topic, I’ve increased the number of openings in my schedule for August to accommodate you. See below for details.

Light touch vs osseous adjusting was discussed this past week. Dr. Dan and I discuss INTENT and RESULTS. Where does structural adjusting fit? What does your INNATE say? Where are you most proficient? Can you accept a NEURAL-DURAL technic that is simply overlaid on the spine so the landmarks are familiar? 

Is there a difference between working ON the spine vs working IN the spine? Can you discern the emotional components behind your findings? Can you discuss that is a quick and impactful way?

We then headed into care plans and recommendations and discussed the age old apprroach of recommending what the doctor THINKS the patient will find OK. This, in turn, led to a conversation of the difference between a VISIT & ADJUSTMENT.  
 
Can you accept that if you have to adjust people every time they come in…perhaps they are not coming in often enough to come in not needing an adjustment.

What is a Constant?
What is a Variable?
This blog post is sponsored by @AhliaYoga: Join Ahlia for her meditations and yoga practices on YouTube

BJ defined a CONSTANT as C1 and C2 rotated together as a couplet. This was an important structural concept because (according to BJ) you could use EITHER C1 or C2 as the lever and correct both misaligned vertebrae.

Conversely, a variable was when there was a counter-rotation of C1 and C2. It was BJ’s contention that, in this case, to only adjust C1 because adjusting C2 would make C1 worse.

Many post HIO upper cervical approaches, including but not limited to Grostic and Blair, found vehicles, namely torque, to address these phenomena. 
 
And, while MC2 uses structural landmarks familiar to all of us, we view C1 and C2 laterality in our supine assessment yet look at rotation, inclination or declination of C2 in the prone analysis.

Recently, the question came up of what to do when findings indicate both C1 and C2? This is important regardless of technic or technic model because, at the end of the day I think we can all agree the objective is the reduction of nerve interference.

Is there a TONAL (Holographic Universe) explanation?
This blog post is sponsored by @AhliaYoga: Join Ahlia for her meditations and yoga practices on YouTube

Do you use a leg check?
What if you can’t?
What about babies?
What about those missing a limb?
Hemi or quadraplegics?

Dan and I reviewed this with particular attention to kids on the spectrum. The information is germaine regardless of technic.

PLUS, I add in a specific advance test for the C8 nerve root as it is becoming more and more commonplace. The emotional components are anger and heartache and these have also become pandemic in the community.

Your certainty jumps when you can tell them whats going on and why rather than waiting for them to tell you.

Shifting From The Pursuit of More to Becoming a Role Model for others
This blog post is sponsored by @AhliaYoga: Join Ahlia for her meditations and yoga practices on YouTube

I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Dr. Robert Delgado for the Chiropractic Freedom Show. His intro was, “Dr. Steve Hoffman has been coaching Chiropractors for over 25 years. This experience and wisdom is invaluable to any Doctor wanting to create a successful Practice as part of a fulfilling life. If you’re feeling stuck or looking to take your life to a new level this is the interview for you.”
 
I started off by explaining that I, too, played the “game called more” in my practice and I built a very successful practice doing so. BUT, while I joked that my long term goal was to enjoy the same standard of living as my spouse and children, it struck me that I was so out of balance and in contradiction between what I said and what I did that I was not the role model I wanted to be for my children. After all, I was always in the office, often missed out on important events in their lives and they “had it all” Why would they want to be like me when I wanted to be like them???
 
So, why not join in for this mindset shift and what took place there after…decide what it is you really, truly want!

Positioning Your Practice
This blog post is sponsored by @AhliaYoga: Join Ahlia for her meditations and yoga practices on YouTube

DC’s have always endeavored to deliver what they thought their community thought they should deliver.

my experience, when it comes to causes of subluxation, most chiropractors have an understanding of and an answer for TRAUMA and TOXINS components. And, in my practice, the primary cause for most people was the one we have been least prepared to recogniize, understand, communicate about and deal with, namely the TENSION or EMOTIONAL component.
 
Seems to me, while many had physical and chemical causes, literally everyone had mental/emotional causes. AND, it has gotten even worse over the past couple of years. In order to be the doctors of cause that we hold ouselves out to be, how can we become better versed in the EMOTIONAL COMPONENT?

Dr. Dan and I broached that subject recently on our FB LIVE and we will be adding it to ADVANCED MC2 and ADVANCED Tonal Pedes in some of the upcoming seminars. We’re debating, and would love your input, as to if you feel you would be better served by an extended weekend program or a stand-alone ADVANCED ONLY seminar.

Topic 1:
Which Supplements Do You Take?
Topic 2:
BioFields Explained

This blog post is sponsored by @AhliaYoga: Join Ahlia for her meditations and yoga practices on YouTube

TOPIC 1: Supplements
I mentioned this last week and Dan and I recorded a FaceBook Live event to explore this subject and invite your participation. My method is to see if there are any overt commonalities and I was looking to see what supplements, if any, healthy people take as part of their healthy lifestyle. On the video, I mention the top 4 supplements I take and Dan mentioned a few he takes. We have also had some commentary already from docs about what they take. So, do join in the conversation by posting on our MC2 Technic Forum Page and also by just sending me a quick email. Once results are in, I will happily let everyone know what commonalities I found.
Well, lots of you have PM’d me for more so here’s more to whet your appetite:

TOPIC 2: Biofields
We opened up the mind field last week and introduced the concept of BioFields, their predictability and use as a shortcut in practice. While largely applicable to MC2, this information is useful for all technics employing torque from a physiological, rather than structural, perspective.

BioFields or General Torque Fields are similar to Torsion Fields proposed by Einstein. In my experience, an individual’s BioField map rarely changes. Once you know an  individual’s “MAP”, you may eliminate the need for checking torque when adjusting. 

Be aware that it just might be your map and my findings are based on my map!



My map is if you find clockwise torque going up the body on the left, you will also find counter-clockwise torque going up the body on the right. And, visa versa.

 If you find counter-clockwise going lateral to medial on the left, you will find clockwise torque going lateral to medial on the right.
 Similar with P to A. Check it and see.

Their pattern should hold true going forward. 
If its ever not, look to YOU. Please play with this and let me know your findings. We are ALWAYS looking for commonalities.

Always check for certainty. Using an individual’s torque field allows you to eliminate the step of finding the torque for every area you interact with on a visit to visit basis.

We will be expanding this in 2 seminars scheduled for later this year. Nashville is already scheduled (see below) and we are in conversation with Matt Hubbard in San Diego for West Coast program (likely in November).
