What Would Dr. Steph Do? Immune System Boosting! A new segment by Dr. Stephanie Maj

The Webster Technique to Prepare Mom's body for Delivery with Dr. Kelly Synowiec-Moroney

Drs. Steph and Kelly discuss the Webster Technique, a specific chiropractic sacral analysis and diversified adjustment. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of sacral subluxation/ SI joint dysfunction. In doing so, neuro-biomechanical function in the pelvis is facilitated. Dr. Kelly Synowiec-Moroney Bio: Simply put, I knew there was something more to being healthy. I never went very far. I grew up in Franklin Park, went to school in River Grove, DeKalb and Lombard. My mother thought she was doing the right thing but as a child every time I had a cold the doctor put me on antibiotics. As a teenager we drank tons of pop. Then in college my headaches were coming at least once a week and I took Advil every time. From the outside I looked healthy, but deep down I knew there was more to true health. Education Starting in high school AP classes, the medical field was my pathway. I enjoyed learning about eating healthy and exercise. I looked at chiropractic but everyone said I should be a real doctor. So I started volunteering at outpatient clinics and in the ER. Everywhere I looked, people were sick and my desire to help them get healthy naturally continued to grow until I could no longer ignore it. Chiropractic school was perfect. My education from National University of Health Sciences taught me all the science behind the body. Nutrition and exercise were all there. Then there was that something more — True Health that comes from within. I learned that nature needs no help, just no interference. Our body knows what to do, we just have to let it do what it was designed to do. Practice Philosophy Here at Tree of Life Wellness Center we are dedicated to helping families reach their health care goals naturally. I base my recommendations on your health goals. You hire me to guide your body to heal in the right direction. I have the latest technology available in my office. We complete diagnostic testing on the nerves, muscles, feet and bones. All of the medical recorders are electronic. I incorporate instrument adjusting for those people who do not like the “cracking” sound. I am a very analytical person. I love to analyze each segment of the spine and make an adjustment to bring the body back into its natural position. We address you from head to toe, inside out. About Me I am a mom and a wife in addition to running my practice. I fully qualified as a doctor of chiropractic in 1999 with Cum Laude honors and have since progressed to focus on Non-Surgical Reconstructive Care. Bill and I have been together for over 20 years. I delivered both of my kids naturally in the water. Chloee, my first born is 16. My youngest is 12-year-old Liam. Now as a mother I get to put my school experience into practical use. I get to see first hand how the body knows what to do. I get to directly help support my kids to be all that they can be. Both Chloee & Liam were adjusted within 24 hours of birth. It is great to find that balance between home and the office. I love being active & present in my kids’ lives. Morning is my time to myself. It is not always easy but, I feel awesome getting up before 5am to go workout and have my time. I typically have a protein and greens shake every morning for breakfast. I make sure Bill, Chloee, Liam and myself get checked for an adjustment once a week. We spend our time outdoors as much as possible. Hiking in Southern Illinois or Michigan is right up our alley. I am also involved in our community and am happy to be a part of the Elmhurst Chamber. ~~~ To ask Dr. Steph a question, call 708.808.6250 and you will hear your answer on one of our episodes.

Preparing Mom's Body for Pregancy, Delivery and Life with a New Baby with Dr. Kelly Synowiec-Moroney

Benefits of Chiropractic Cranial Work for Infants with Dr. Barb Gettel

Why do babies need a chiropractor? What is cranial work in terms of chiropractic and how is it different from the adjustment? How is it different from Craniosacral? What are indicators that parents can look for suggesting their child should see a pediatric chiropractor? Doctors Barb and Steph with their combined 40 years of experience discuss all of these details and more on this episode of Families Seeking Wellness. Meet Dr. Barb: I am a graduate of Northwestern College of Chiropractic. After graduating, I have continued my education with a focus in Cranial/TMJ work and organ adjustments as well as spinal adjustments. I have always been amazed at the body's natural ability to heal itself and love to educate my patients back into health. It has been my experience that if areas of the body can be supported through adjustments and proper nutrition; optimal health can be maintained and poor health can be improved. In many cases drugs can be avoided. I have almost 400 hours of Continuing Education credits on Sacro Occipital Technique (SOT). When not working, I am an active member in the profession and also enjoy spending time with my husband Dan and my sons Daniel and Andrew.

Fats that Heal. Fats that Kill with Udo Erasmus, founder of Udo's Choice Oils

Dr. Maj discusses the ins and outs of how healthy fats can change our lives with Udo Erasmus. Here is a link so you can review the free gift.Udo’s Healthy Fats Recipe book. http://Udoerasmus.com/drmaj BIO: I was born during the second world war in Europe, and sometimes you will hear me say that I was born in hell and with a lot of help from visible and invisible friends, walked a long crooked path from there to heaven. Along the way, I tried out many things and learned a lot. Every trade and job, every movement or breath and every step led me to the next turn on the path to find new, different and out-of-the-box possibilities. My path includes brief jobs in several different trades: fruit picking, dairy farming, logging, mining, carpentry, house painting, clearing land, burning brush, growing food, gardening, and finally pesticide spraying. I spent a year in medicine and several years in science research. One winter, I had a part-time job babysitting pickled fish in a fish museum. One summer, I worked for the fish and game branch. Several other summers, I worked on a drilling, blasting, and prospecting crew in the mountains of British Columbia. The reason I am telling you this is because what all of these had in common was human interaction with nature and ‘wilderness’. In the 60s hippie era I even tried drugs, couch-surfed, traded a Winchester 30-30 for a trumpet that I played on the front steps of my house after a few drinks of Southern Comfort, played flute and harmonica, sang in a choir but more often in the shower, hitchhiked for six days from Toronto to Vancouver without a penny to my name, camped out, started a nude beach, and lived in co-ops, communes, apartments and houses both in rural and urban settings. It was wild, but it was fun! Yes, I even got married. A lover of biology, and convinced that pregnancy is not a disease, I attended the home-births of my three children and admit that my wife did almost all the work and that my small contribution was to catch them, tie and cut their cords, and return them to their rightful owner, mom. After being poisoned by pesticides in 1980, I seriously turned my passion and attention to health. I obsessively studied literature, created a method for making good oils with health in mind, developed the first ever flax seed oil, authored several books on the effects of oils on health:Fats and Oils;Fats That Heal Fats That Kill;Choosing the Right Fats;Omega 3 Cuisine; and enthusiastically educated the public in about 40 countries on the effects of oils on health and disease. In 1992, I developed healthy whole foods supplements for dogs, cats, and horses. In 1994, I developed an oil blend that is both better balanced and more effective than flax oil. I followed this with probiotics blends and digestive enzyme blends in 1997, and a year later developed prebiotic fiber and green blends. I have passionately given 5,000+ live presentations on nutrition and health, 3,000+ media interviews, 1,500 staff trainings and traveled to 30+ countries with my message on oils, health, nature, and human nature. For 15 years, I spent 6-9 months a year living out of a suitcase to spread the message of good oils and health. Over the past 15 years, I have had the pleasure and honor to grace the stages with luminaries like Tony Robbins (on oils) and Deepak Chopra (on peace,) keynoted an international Brain Health conference, and lectured in conferences on five continents. Now I am writing on many different titles and topics, including an autobiography. I consult, present, take on the key global issues of our time, and spearhead several multi-trillion dollar projects on peace, health, energy, environment, and education. My fervor and fire are now focused on sustainable energy and water management, as well as healthcare based in nature and human nature, the nature of human nature, and the thirst of the heart resulting in perfect health for you, your family and the world. Thank you again for being he

Structural Solutions for Scoliosis with Dr. Paul Fisher

Discussion of what to do and how to diagnose this often ignored pediatric spinal issue. Bio: Dr. Fisher has undergone extensive Post-Graduate training in whiplash injuries, headaches, posture analysis, pregnancy, neck pain, shoulder pain, low back treatment and digital motion x-ray. He is certified in Chiropractic Biophysics and Whiplash Biomechanics. He has undertaken extensive studies in ligament injuries (the primary cause of chronic spinal pain) and has two studies pending publication. It’s not often that you find a healthcare provider that shares your passion for what’s possible when it comes to your health. But at Gold Coast Chiropractic, we know that better health—and feeling your best—can and should be within everyone’s reach. That’s why we don’t settle for traditional treatments or conventional approaches that often limit health outcomes by focusing solely on pain management or symptom relief rather than identifying and resolving the root cause of specific health issues. Dr. Fisher is originally from Okoboji, IA. He attended Iowa State University, graduating with a Bachelor of Science in MIS and a Minor in Chemistry. Upon graduation he moved to Lombard, IL to attend National University of Health Sciences. While there, he was awarded both a Bachelor’s Degree in Human Biology and a Doctor of Chiropractic. Dr. Fisher was also student body Vice-President and member of the executive board member of Student American Chiropractic Association. He also received a Master’s of Science in Nutrition from Bridgeport University. Prior to graduation, Dr. Fisher was selected to participate in the Department of Defense internship at National Naval Medical Hospital in Bethesda, MD. While an intern there, he performed weekly rotations in other departments including: Neurosurgery, Pain Management, Orthopedic Surgery, Radiology, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Oral Facial Pain Clinic. He then started Fisher Chiropractic and Integrative Health in Hinsdale, IL, which he ran with a partner until July of 2013. Dr. Fisher has been at Gold Coast Chiropractic since August 2013. He is a member of Chiropractic Biophysics Non-Profit, Academy of Chiropractic, the Illinois Chiropractic Society, and the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. http://www.goldcoastchiropractic.com/ To ask Dr. Steph a question, call 708.808.6250 and you will hear your answer on one of our episodes.

Doctors Barb and Steph with their combined 40 years of experience discuss all of these details and more on this episode of Families Seeking Wellness. Meet Dr. Barb: I am a graduate of Northwestern College of Chiropractic. After graduating, I have continued my education with a focus in Cranial/TMJ work and organ adjustments as well as spinal adjustments. I have always been amazed at the body's natural ability to heal itself and love to educate my patients back into health. It has been my experience that if areas of the body can be supported through adjustments and proper nutrition; optimal health can be maintained and poor health can be improved. In many cases drugs can be avoided. I have almost 400 hours of Continuing Education credits on Sacro Occipital Technique (SOT). When not working, I am an active member in the profession and also enjoy spending time with my husband Dan and my sons Daniel and Andrew.

Fats that Heal. Fats that Kill with Udo Erasmus, founder of Udo's Choice Oils

Dr. Maj discusses the ins and outs of how healthy fats can change our lives with Udo Erasmus. Here is a link so you can review the free gift.Udo’s Healthy Fats Recipe book. http://Udoerasmus.com/drmaj BIO: I was born during the second world war in Europe, and sometimes you will hear me say that I was born in hell and with a lot of help from visible and invisible friends, walked a long crooked path from there to heaven. Along the way, I tried out many things and learned a lot. Every trade and job, every movement or breath and every step led me to the next turn on the path to find new, different and out-of-the-box possibilities. My path includes brief jobs in several different trades: fruit picking, dairy farming, logging, mining, carpentry, house painting, clearing land, burning brush, growing food, gardening, and finally pesticide spraying. I spent a year in medicine and several years in science research. One winter, I had a part-time job babysitting pickled fish in a fish museum. One summer, I worked for the fish and game branch. Several other summers, I worked on a drilling, blasting, and prospecting crew in the mountains of British Columbia. The reason I am telling you this is because what all of these had in common was human interaction with nature and ‘wilderness’. In the 60s hippie era I even tried drugs, couch-surfed, traded a Winchester 30-30 for a trumpet that I played on the front steps of my house after a few drinks of Southern Comfort, played flute and harmonica, sang in a choir but more often in the shower, hitchhiked for six days from Toronto to Vancouver without a penny to my name, camped out, started a nude beach, and lived in co-ops, communes, apartments and houses both in rural and urban settings. It was wild, but it was fun! Yes, I even got married. A lover of biology, and convinced that pregnancy is not a disease, I attended the home-births of my three children and admit that my wife did almost all the work and that my small contribution was to catch them, tie and cut their cords, and return them to their rightful owner, mom. After being poisoned by pesticides in 1980, I seriously turned my passion and attention to health. I obsessively studied literature, created a method for making good oils with health in mind, developed the first ever flax seed oil, authored several books on the effects of oils on health:Fats and Oils;Fats That Heal Fats That Kill;Choosing the Right Fats;Omega 3 Cuisine; and enthusiastically educated the public in about 40 countries on the effects of oils on health and disease. In 1992, I developed healthy whole foods supplements for dogs, cats, and horses. In 1994, I developed an oil blend that is both better balanced and more effective than flax oil. I followed this with probiotics blends and digestive enzyme blends in 1997, and a year later developed prebiotic fiber and green blends. I have passionately given 5,000+ live presentations on nutrition and health, 3,000+ media interviews, 1,500 staff trainings and traveled to 30+ countries with my message on oils, health, nature, and human nature. For 15 years, I spent 6-9 months a year living out of a suitcase to spread the message of good oils and health. Over the past 15 years, I have had the pleasure and honor to grace the stages with luminaries like Tony Robbins (on oils) and Deepak Chopra (on peace,) keynoted an international Brain Health conference, and lectured in conferences on five continents. Now I am writing on many different titles and topics, including an autobiography. I consult, present, take on the key global issues of our time, and spearhead several multi-trillion dollar projects on peace, health, energy, environment, and education. My fervor and fire are now focused on sustainable energy and water management, as well as healthcare based in nature and human nature, the nature of human nature, and the thirst of the heart resulting in perfect health for you, your family and the world. Thank you again for being he

Structural Solutions for Scoliosis with Dr. Paul Fisher

Discussion of what to do and how to diagnose this often ignored pediatric spinal issue. Bio: Dr. Fisher has undergone extensive Post-Graduate training in whiplash injuries, headaches, posture analysis, pregnancy, neck pain, shoulder pain, low back treatment and digital motion x-ray. He is certified in Chiropractic Biophysics and Whiplash Biomechanics. He has undertaken extensive studies in ligament injuries (the primary cause of chronic spinal pain) and has two studies pending publication.

But at Gold Coast Chiropractic, we know that better health—and feeling your best—can and should be within everyone’s reach.

Upon graduation he moved to Lombard, IL to attend National University of Health Sciences. While there, he was awarded both a Bachelor’s Degree in Human Biology and a Doctor of Chiropractic.
