The Triad of Health
The human body is a vast network of different systems all working together in harmony to create health. When we experience fatigue, pain, depression, stomachaches, sickness, and general ill health, it is a sign that the body is being challenged and that not all systems are working optimally. Armed with the knowledge of how the body’s systems work together, Dr. Rostenberg and Dr. Grable are able to treat a wide range of conditions. At Red Mountain, Dr. Rostenberg and Dr. Grable follow the Triad of Health as their model for treating patients. According to the International College of Applied Kinesiology:
The triad of health lists the three basic causes of health problems. They are structural, chemical, and mental, with structure as the base of the triad. Literally, all health problems, whether functional or pathological, are involved with one part or all parts of the triad. This is not new to chiropractic, as its founder, D.D. Palmer states in his text, The Science, Art, and Philosophy of Chiropractic, “The determining causes of disease are traumatism, poison and autosuggestion.” AK enables the doctor to evaluate the triad’s functional balance and direct therapy toward the imbalanced side or sides. The physician who is aware of the triad of health, and evaluates every patient for all three sides, increases his ability to find the basic underlying cause of a patient´s health problem.
By focusing on structural (spine, muscles, and soft tissues), chemical (nutrient deficiencies and toxin exposure), and neurological (brain function, brain balance) there is no stone left unturned. Proper alignment of the skull and spine allows for proper functioning of the nervous system, which in turn increases health across a broad spectrum. Chiropractors use their hands and simple tools to move bones and tissues back into proper alignment. We do not use drugs, and we do not use surgery. Your body knows how to heal itself. At Red Mountain, we respect and understand that.
