On episode 11 of The Weird Works! podcast, Dr. Adrienne, a Doctor of Chiropractic talks about how Chiropractic care can be your primary approach to health. Dr. Adrienne received training in many adjusting techniques such as Diversified, Thompson, Gonstead, SOT, Logan, Athrostim, and Activator. She found a true passion with pediatric and prenatal care while in school and currently working towards her diplomate from International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. She grew up seeing a Chiropracter as her primary care doctor and did not suffer the “ordinary” childhood ailments and illnesses because of being raised in the chiropractic care approach to health.

Facing life changing surgery in an attempt to correct 116 degrees of scoliosis curves, Christine Whitmarsh was given three distinct and distinctly terrifying odds – paralysis, death, or coming out of the surgery alive and functional, free to resume her nineteen year old life. Up until that moment, Christine’s life had been fairly normal as a slightly neurotic, hyper achieving, rail thin, towheaded New England teenager with ambitions to become “the next Barbara Walters.” Her life after the surgery would eventually become normal too, albeit a new sort of normal, as an entrepreneur, professional creative, and, unexpectedly, in the fourth decade of her life, a circus artist, but this story isn’t about navigating normal. Join us as Dr Kristy Harvell discusses Christine’s incredible story of hope and her book The Power of the Curve: A Memoir About Finding Strength in Life’s Surprises.

Dr. Longyear’s passion for helping others comes from a personal experience. Having gone through a traumatic football injury that left him paralyzed during his sophomore year in high school, he beat the odds and did what the doctors said wasn’t possible. After feeling defeated hearing that he would never walk again, he used their words as fuel to drive his rehab and he walked out of the hospital a month later. Since that time, he has dedicated himself to helping others defy the odds and never accept their new normal. In his own case, none of his doctors really had a consistent diagnosis, so, he started researching his case. His passion led him to study many disciplines: Chiropractic, Neurology, Psychology, Functional Medicine, and Energy Medicine, just to name a few. These disciplines have all helped him design his unique brand of health care and he is helping people heal from conditions that all other medical therapies could not heal in his practice in Jacksonville, Florida.

Robyn joins us shortly after her 70th birthday! She shares her 22-year journey after being diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Like so many following a cancer diagnosis, Robyn describes the fast track of traditional medicine through surgery, chemo, and recommendations for radiation. Robyn used her intuition, alternative therapy, healthy diet, nutritional supplementation, and positive self-talk to heal from cancer as well as the medications. Robyn advocated for herself to get to the route of her body’s dysfunction in order to fully heal and prevent the recurrence of her cancer. This included saying no thank you to traditional doctors’ recommendations for more invasive courses of care. Despite criticism from friends, family, and doctors, she has remained cancer-free, continues to live a holistic lifestyle, and has never looked back on being a cancer patient. Robyn focuses on staying in high vibration and she teaches us how to do the same.
“I hope my words can help someone else in some way. I know how alone I felt 22 years ago when I didn't know anyone who had survived ovarian cancer. And even the nurses at the hospital gave me a dire prognosis. I hope I was able to give hope to someone or to more than one "someone".” -Robyn
