My Mother Inspired Me to Become a Chiropractor…

Here’s my story on how losing my mother to Type 1 diabetes was my chiropractic inspiration…

When it came to music, movies, yoga and so forth, my mother was a HUGE inspiration. She was an even bigger influence in my decision to become a chiropractor – my chiropractic inspiration. I saw such a beautiful, loving & joyful woman deteriorate from Type 1 diabetes. Over-time, I was witnessing her becoming dependent on pills. Many of these pills just masked the issue rather than help the cause. She also became less-active & more accepting of her condition. However, I was keen on learning the natural preventative measures she could use to help enhance her bodily function, mobility & immune system. My mother then became my chiropractic inspiration.

Human Sciences opened my eyes…

In 1998, I graduated at the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic with a BSc Human Sciences. With great sadness, she passed away the year I graduated. I can remember feeling completely frustrated that it was too late to help my mother. With there being around 4 million Brits dealing with diabetes, this just drove me to want to help others even more!

Whilst studying Human Sciences, I became particularly interested in the affect nerves in the upper neck/middle back had on the pancreatic function, digestion, enzymes etc. I gained an understanding that the upper neck/middle back are responsible for supplying nerve signals to the brain/vital organs. However, when there is not a sufficient amount of responses happening, the pancreas, blood sugar & digestion are all effected. In turn, when the pancreas is functioning incorrectly, this may lead to a lack of enzymes being produces to help with digestion & the production of insulin.

Across the years, I realised that chiropractic adjustments can improve the relationship between the nervous system & organs. This is done by realigning anything hindering the nervous system. Therefore, chiropractic care can enable the body, spine, hormones & organs to all function to their best ability. My studies opened my eyes to the potential chiropractic has to help those with diabetes. Find out more here. My mother & this knowledge, inspired me to become a chiropractor. So in 1999, I graduated with a MSc in Chiropractic.

I wish my mother had of been provided with chiropractic care…

Unfortunately, my mother was never one for taking preventative measures or looking after her health- but I wish she had of been. If she had of  took advantage of the services & advice available to her, then I could of had more time to have made more amazing memories with her. I wish she had of been provided with chiropractic care. Having seen the positive impact it has on patients I have treated who have diabetes. I am not saying to ditch the pills & the GP, but chiropractic would have been a useful alongside it all. Even-though there is a no cure for diseases such as arthritis, diabetes etc. there are services available to slow down the progression of diseases, improve your immune system & optimise the function & mobility of the body. Chiropractic is one of them!
