Why I receive upper cervical Chiropractic care:
I’m a better person when I see Dr. Hunt. I can distinctly remember a day last fall when I was trying to do math homework and after about an hour of staring at my textbook and accomplishing absolutely nothing, I gave up. I was completely in a fog. My brain was thinking about a thousand different things and every time I tried to think about solving the problems at hand I was paralyzed. I’m a smart guy, these problems were not a challenge for me. It was crushingly discouraging to not be able to do simple algebra. That afternoon I got an adjustment from Dr. Hunt. I immediately went to a nearby coffee shop to finish the work before class and in about 20 minutes I had finished the whole assignment. Not only did I get it done at breakneck speed, but it was actually relaxing to be able to focus that well. The human brain is the most complicated material that we have discovered in the universe, it’s a hydro-electric/chemical computer. It does not function properly without cerebral spinal fluid. I believe it is critical for a healthy mind to be connected to the rest of the body, and upper cervical care combined with diet is probably the most important thing we can do for our health.

Nothing prepares you for parenthood, especially when you are a first time parent. It did not take long for my husband and I to realize this. Very quickly our days were spent trying to placate our son and attempting to figures out his schedule, our nights were spent with endless attempts to get the baby settled and back to sleep. No two 24-hour periods were the same. I found myself exhausted not knowing how to help my son with his constant fussing, reflux and nursing had become a very painful experience for me that I did not enjoy. Our pediatrician assured us that as long as he was hitting his milestones, we shouldn’t be worried, some babies were just fussy. I feel so blessed that I was working with a lactation specialist, who noticed his rigid posture while I was nursing one day. She took the time to really look at my son. After a simple examination, she said she believed he had a condition called torticollis and said while common, he should be taken to a cranial sacral specialist and evaluated for physical therapy. I had no idea what this condition really was or what the specialist would be able to do. So I called my chiropractor and asked him about this condition, he knew the condition and immediately recommended Dr. Julie Mayer Hunt. When he said he would take his own children to her if need be I knew it was the best place to be.
My personal experience with chiropractic care has been positive; the experience we have had with out son has been nothing short of amazing! At the first visit, Dr. Hunt was very thorough explaining about torticollis and answered all my questions and was able to show some exercises to work through at home. After her initial evaluation, she quickly did the adjustment, which my son barely even noticed by the way, she handed him back to me and advised me to nurse him for a few minutes and she would re-evaluate him before we left. For the first time since birth, the first time in almost ten weeks nursing did not hurt. My son was relaxed and at ease in my arms, I kept waiting to hear angels sing, it felt that miraculous to me. Dr. Hunt was as excited as I was and so encouraging about what to expect over the next few days. As we left, I noticed my son was not screaming his head off being in his car seat, yet another immediate change that I couldn’t quite believe. Within 36 hours my son’ reflux was minimal, his ability to nurse in a relaxed manner only improved, he became more vocal with cooing and babbling, he was kicking his legs and attempting to roll over. The biggest change of all was he slept through the night, an entire 6 hours! And he proceeded to add an hour each night – up to nine and half hours! He got on a schedule and began taking long naps during the day and truly has become a happy baby. In a very short period to time, I felt like I had been given a completely different child. I’m so thankful for Dr. Hunt’s expertise and how her desire to help others has benefited our family. I had been feeling at my wit’s end, not knowing how to help my child and feeling like I was constantly doing “motherhood” wrong. Now I fee empowered to not only advocate for my son, but encourage other mothers to do the same for their children. To not accept an answer of “all babies are different, but what you are describing is totally normal,” but to seek out help and enjoy living a healthier, happier life.
