In the Beginning There Was Love and Light

I believe that every child deserves to meet his or her full potential. To grow up drug free. To have an amazing life. To be safe, healthy and happy.  

There is a growing epidemic of chronic disease in the United States. The number of people, especially children, with chronic disease is rapidly increasing. About half of the total population of this country is affected and it is only getting worse. Chronic disease is generally seen as incurable and is the leading cause of disability and death in the U.S. Chronic diseases touches the lives of EVERY American, in one way or another. Here is the good news: One Love Chiropractic is changing all of that.  Wife and son of Derek Kasten, Asheville Chiropractor

Dis-ease vs. Disease
  • Dis-ease (a holistic term): A lack of ease or homeostasis within the body, which may or may NOT present as a symptom.
  • Disease (a medical term): When dis-ease is left to express for a long enough period of time, it leads to symptoms which are diagnosed or labeled as a medical condition in order to recommend treatment.

Truthfully, I can’t stand to see children suffer anymore with chronic dis-ease.

This is a shout out to the parents who have kids who are suffering and to those parents who are also looking for a DRUG-FREE, natural approach. It is time for you to hear the truth. Parents need to know that there is another way and another option besides drugs and surgery. It is also even more important that this message is understood, so that we can prevent and stop future children from suffering in the first place.

By being proactive instead of reactive, we can get ahead in the fight against chronic dis-ease. It is also vital to understand the underlying cause and to stop chasing symptoms if we don’t want to fall behind in the lifelong battle of true health and wellness.

An unhealthy lifestyle causes dis-ease.

So, it is time to change your life. In this country we don’t just die anymore; we slowly kill ourselves with our bad habits.

If you are one of those parents who has a child who is struggling with a chronic dis-ease and you are looking for answers, One Love Chiropractic is for you. If you are one of those parents who wants to be proactive and prevent chronic dis-ease in the first place, then for damn sure, One Love Chiropractic is for you (sorry, getting a bit excited!). And if you are a parent who is dealing with chronic dis-ease as well, then just think about yourself as a big kid and remember that One Love Chiropractic is for you, too.

I will be honest with you all here and now: One Love Chiropractic might be a bit much for you. The reality is that One Love presents the truth and this is what I know and what I have experienced. Many times, the truth can be very difficult to take. It is human nature to become defensive and to be fearful of change. I just ask that you put the fear and judgment behind you and keep an open mind and an open heart. This isn’t just about you; this is about all of us and our children.

I can say this because I was once a child who suffered. I had major neurological issues that were covered up and dumbed down with medication and chemicals. The cause of my chronic dis-ease was not understood until it was almost too late, and I don’t want your family or child to go through what I and my family had to experience. I can truly relate and empathize with every one of you; I also had to watch my own daughter struggling with colic and severe constipation because of a traumatic birth.

At One Love I am going to keep things simple. I am going to speak in terms of intuitive logical reason. I will give you my take on the cause and prevention of dis-ease, and also what needs to be done in order to allow the body to start the healing process from the inside out. My expertise comes from experience and from getting amazing results after all other options have been exhausted. Usually, I am someone’s last resort, when they are desperate and looking for hope. I can only anticipate that after enough people read this book and the truth about chronic dis-ease spreads, I will be the first option.

I have cared for families and children for just short of a decade. Those who I care for are suffering with chronic dis-ease which holds them back from meeting their full potential and affects their quality of life on a daily basis. I love what I do because I truly understand that I’m not the one doing the healing. I’m only a facilitator of the healing process. You see, the body has an innate ability to heal from within, and if we can allow that inborn intelligence to be expressed, then amazing things happen.

As a certified pediatric chiropractor and an expert in family wellness (yes I do care for adults as well), I have seen many miracles take place when the body is in a balanced state and is truly able to heal from within.

I consider myself more than a Doctor of Chiropractic (DC). I see myself as a Doctor of CAUSE. And the real definition of a doctor is NOT someone who treats, but someone who teaches.
Thomas Edison quote

“The doctor of the future will give no medication, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.” 

~ Thomas Edison

I guess that quotation sums up what we do as chiropractors. Remember, healing can only take place from the inside out. Allopathic approaches are just Band-Aids to cover up the symptoms and have nothing to do with the cause or with true healing from within.

B.J. Palmer said it best:

“Chiropractic is the study of health and what causes a man to live, while Medicine is the study of disease and what causes a man to die.”

As a pediatric chiropractor, I’ve taken care of kiddos who were one day old; I have cared for premature babies in the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) who were born at 31 weeks; and I have cared for mothers throughout their pregnancies. When I adjust a pregnant mother, the little one in utero is also receiving an adjustment

At the end of the day, One Love is not just about curing the dis-eases that our children are suffering from; it’s also about understanding the cause and preventing disease from happening in the first place.

I tend to buck the norm and go against the grain, but I write this blog with love and truth and respect and honor in mind for each and every one of you who are reading this. I truly care about my fellow man and I know how important One Love is to the healing within.

You might think that I’m a little bit over-the-top; you might smile, laugh, cry or curse me. Either way, remember that emotion and feeling is what allows us to stay young and alive—to feel like we exist. It is part of who we are as human beings; it’s how we perceive and express who we actually are. So, as you read this, imagine yourself as a child. Being more childlike allows all of us to live happier and healthier lives. We deserve to live the life that was intended for us to live, a life that is less stressful than it is now, a life that is organic, a life that allows our innate to be free, a life that is open, honest and wonderful and without chronic dis-ease.

I know a lot of you are looking for answers and for hope. The beauty is, I know you’ll find it, but along the way I hope you also find yourself, because this is more about the bigger picture and raising the consciousness of how to live a healthier life from here and now. This is the beginning of moving towards health and away from dis-ease.

All I can say is buckle up, hold on tight, and get ready for the ride because what One Love Chiropractic has to offer will change your life, will change your perspective, will change the whole paradigm of health and dis-ease as you know it. One Love.

    I love the fact that when a pregnant woman receives an adjustment the little one in utero is also receiving an adjustment. What a great visual! I appreciate the work you do and the education you provide.

      I love it too Margaret. They are two peas in a pod, and the studies show that what Mom is perceiving and expressing (cells, neurons, hormones, nutrients...) so is Baby. Whatever stress Mom is under, so is baby. When Mom gets an adjustment to release tension and improve neurological function, Baby also benefits:) It is a beautiful thing.
