How’s your atlas?The answer to this simple question could change your life … And the entire world. The atlas, the first cervical vertebra of the human spine, encircles the brain stem and acts as a suit of armor protecting the central nervous system.

But what happens when the integrity of that barrier is compromised? Answer: catastrophic, system-wide failure, manifesting in the form of disorders, disease, and a devastating reduction in overall quality of life. And most people don’t even know it’s happening to them.

The most effective care for this problem is also the most non-invasive. It requires no surgery, no drugs, and no lifestyle change. And it’s been around for over 100 years. After watching his brother suffer from the life-altering effects of a sports-related neck injury, Dr. Steve Judson’s passion became helping humans to heal from within, unleash their innate healing power, and reach their fullest potential through chiropractic.

Now, he is speaking out, sharing this powerful truth with you. This is not just a book about human health. This is a book about coming alive. It’s about challenging your preexisting notions about life, discovering your purpose as a human being, and unlocking your innate potential.

Author: by Dr. Kevin Conners
Published at: Independently published (February 5, 2013)
ISBN: 979-8682535996

View on Amazon

3rd Edition Twice the content as the original! An eye-opening expos on standard vs. Alternative cancer treatments. Dr. Kevin Conners of Conners Clinic approaches sickness from an integrative perspective, blending holistic (like Dr Gerson) and modern practices, to help people’s bodies move towards health and healing, especially as it relates to cancer.

Cancer is a very scary word; but it doesn’t have to be. Conventional approaches are aimed at de-bulking a growing cancer (cancer fighting), never giving hope and addressing what drives it (therefore knowing how to starve cancer). “Why do I have cancer?” “Is there a cause that needs to be addressed?” This book will help answer these questions and give hope for those dealing with a cancer diagnosis, beyond standard medical approaches, using holistic, natural, alternative cancer practices.

Dr. Kevin Conners does not treat cancer; he treats the cause. Focusing on a metabolic approach and looking at what creates dis-ease in your body will allow you to empower your immune system to do what it was designed to do: kill!
