The simple act of deciding to be happier and focus on the positive will improve your health. Just as negative emotions can weaken the body's resistance level, positive emotions can give us strength, or at least allow our bodies to function normally. Therefore, the simple act of deciding to be happier and focus on the positive will improve your health. In fact, the phenomenon of your thoughts affecting your physical health is so strong that all medical studies have to be designed with it in mind. Researchers call this 'the placebo effect.'

Many people believe that the term 'placebo effect' means that the effect is only imagined - that it is not real. But this couldn't be further from the truth. Medical studies have to include a control group - people who receive placebos instead of the medicine being studied - because the simple act of people making the decision to take action to improve their health leads to measurable physical improvement in their condition. To determine the effects of a particular medicine, researchers have to measure the change in the group who underwent therapy and subtract out the amount of change seen in the placebo group. Otherwise, there is no way to know whether a particular treatment was beneficial or whether it was merely the change in attitude in the study subjects that made the difference. In many instances, the placebo effect turns out to be stronger than the treatment itself! The point is that if you want to have a healthy body you also have to have healthy thoughts and emotions. Just as it is important to avoid toxic chemicals, it is also necessary to avoid toxic thoughts to enjoy optimal health.

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Thank you for your excellent care of Bill and myself. With Bill in a permanent wheel chair, you have kept him comfortable and without pain. He is now 83!!! I am another one of your success stories. At 32 (now 81) I was in constant pain. The only time it wasn’t severe was when I was sitting, and being a mother of 4 that was a difficult situation. I put off seeing you as I thought you were a “quack!"
    Marcia & Bill B.
  • "I am pain free and have regained full strength and sensation back into my arm. I continue to see Dr. Cripe because I am a very active person who needs to remain pain free. Thanks to Dr. Cripe, I am now the person I was before the injury took place. Thanks Doc!"
    Aaron K.
  • "What an extraordinary experience it is coming to the Cripe Upper Cervical Center. Dr. Brian and his caring staff are the most professional and informative staff that I have seen in years. I’ve been battling neck issues for a year and a half seeing countless doctors and chiropractors. I received instant relief after my first adjustment and continue to improve daily. You truly are a Godsend."
    Nick F.
  • "What a privilege for myself and my son to be patient of the week at the Cripe Upper Cervical Center. We are very happy to have known Glenn Cripe for 12 years now. Before I found Glenn Cripe no one could fix my neck, which is very prone to coming out of alignment. We’ve been coming here for years now and couldn’t be more pleased!"
    William & Allistar H.
  • "I feel better than ever! I can run faster, and excel in soccer with no headaches. I would like to grow up to be an upper cervical doctor!"
