Dr. John Sullivan & Julia Sullivan

Go on, admit it.

You’re a little spooked by chiropractors.

You’re not sure that they are really doctors.

You’re afraid of paying a ton of money for a heap of nothing or possibly ending up in greater pain.

I had similar doubts before visiting a chiropractor for the first time, back in 1973.

As a young P.E. major at the University of Southwestern Louisiana, I suffered a serious neck injury during wrestling class. After two and a half weeks of hospitalization, drugs, and therapy, my condition got worse, not better. A friend suggested that I see a chiropractor. I was skeptical at first, but if you’ve ever experienced crippling pain, you understand my motivation to try anything.

I went to the chiropractor, and after just one treatment the difference was amazing – my pain was reduced by at least 80 percent. Within a few days, I was feeling like myself again. Continued chiropractic care helped me restore function.

That experience literally changed the course of my entire life, because I was determined to understand how this chiropractic thing worked.

I started to dig, and that digging led me all the way to Life Chiropractic College, in Marietta, Georgia where I earned my Doctor Of Chiropractic degree.

Later I was awarded Diplomate of Bio-Energetic Synchronization Technique. Currently, I am one of only two Louisiana chiropractors to hold advanced proficiency status in Activator Methods. I also spent a year in Australia helping to share the incredible benefits of non-force type chiropractic with colleagues.

I have been successfully serving patients and training other chiropractors at my clinic in Lafayette, Louisiana for more than 30 years.

Why is our treatment program so consistently effective?

Think of it this way…

Your body, like your car, has unique systems that must work in concert in order to function properly.

In your car, the battery stores and sends energy needed to start the engine, run the lights, the A/C, the radio, and keep the engine running. With a weak battery, the car won’t even start. Without an alternator to keep the battery recharging, the whole vehicle will stop running.

In our bodies, cells need to store and release energy to accomplish the tasks of life. Our cells produce ATP molecules, which are like microscopic, rechargeable batteries within the cell, and their energy is used by the cell to perform the functions of life.

Virtually all illnesses are preceded by a drop in cell charge. The key to health, recovery, and wellness is to keep your batteries charged, but this must be done at the cellular level.

The Best Way to Recharge Your Cells and Maintain Health & Wellness

Similar to a car, your body must produce and release energy in order to survive.

The fastest, most efficient way to recharge your weakened cells is through Pulse-PEMF treatments.

Pulse-PEMF is exceptionally effective at rapidly increasing cell charge, leading to rapid recovery from stressors and a reduction of inflammation. PEMF accelerates your body’s ability to heal itself at a cellular level by rapidly restoring your body’s proper bio-electrical charges.

The Electrical System of Your Body

Think of your body’s nervous system as the electrical system of your car. Without a continual flow of electricity to the appropriate equipment, your car’s lights can go out, your AC can stop running, your radio can stop playing, or the car might just not start at all.

Your brain needs a continuous electrical connection to all of your organs, your limbs, and your extremities in order to function. Disrupt that electrical circuitry, and things start to malfunction or shut down.

Your spine functions like the electrical harness of a car. Nerve impulses travel to and from the brain through the spinal cord to a specific location in the body by way of the peripheral nervous system (PNS). Any interference to this flow of energy or communication is a major problem that needs to be fixed.

We fix these communication problems with accurate, dependable spinal analysis and non-force spinal treatments.

The Posture and Pain Relationship

You probably know already that if your car’s front end is out of alignment or the frame is bent, your ride will be rather rough, and you’ll wear out your tires rapidly.

In your body, the suspension system is a combination of those bones and muscles which are responsible for one of the most overlooked causes of illness and pain today…

…and that is your posture.

Unfortunately, there is no magic bullet, pill, potion, lotion, or treatment (including acupuncture, chiropractic, or physical therapy) that will permanently fix your posture.

However, after 33 years in practice, I can now tell you there is a way to permanently correct posture issues, and that is through Egoscue exercises. As a certified Egoscue postural alignment specialist, I’ve seen a set of simple exercises change lives in a matter of days by devoting as little as 10 minutes a day doing these comforting, yet non-strenuous exercises.

There’s a reason you don’t put diesel into a gas engine.

You can have the world’s best mechanics and the toughest gas-powered engine on the planet, but the minute you put diesel fuel into that engine, the whole car will shut down before you can travel a single mile.

Your body must have the right food in order to function properly. Proper nutrition provides your body with the right fuel, so your cells can convert food into energy.

Putting the wrong food in your body (like sugar, which is really more like a powerful, addictive drug) is like putting diesel into that gas engine I mentioned earlier.

We have a solution that actually works. It is a sound plan of action to help you once and for all kick the sugar addiction and develop lifelong, energy-supporting eating habits.

Optimizing Your Body’s Systems for Maximum Personal Potential

It is the intelligent weaving together of these systems (cellular level recharging, non-force spinal adjustment, posture therapy, and nutrition) that sets your experience at Independence Wellness & Pulse Center apart from any other health care practitioner you might have worked with in the past.
