Stress Q & A
From an evolutionary perspective, stress is tied directly to your instinctual fight-or-flight response. Your body is designed to do one or the other and reacts accordingly depending on the situation.
In today’s world, a simple flight-or-fight response is not usually appropriate. You’re often forced to ignore your instincts, and you bottle up these physical and emotional impulses. As a result, your body can’t cope with the amount of stress it’s internalizing.
Too much stress over long periods can exact a considerable toll on your mental and physical well-being.
One of the trickiest issues in treating stress is the myriad ways it can manifest itself. Every person is different, and the way you cope with external stress may not be the same as how another person deals with the same problems.
However, there are trends in symptoms that can be divided into four categories:
- Emotional: depression, anxiety
- Physical: low energy, headaches, digestive problems
- Behavioral: sleep problems
- Cognitive: inability to concentrate, forgetfulness
While little can be done to eliminate the outside forces that create stress, there is a lot you can do to cope with it. Dr. Gawith helps you by taking an integrated approach that includes overall wellness and chiropractic techniques.
One of the most important tools in Dr. Gawith’s arsenal is Brain Tap®, a mind development tool that helps you achieve physical, mental, and emotional balance.
Through a perfect symmetry of light and sound, Brain Tap creates a balance between your left and right brains, which leads to less brainwave activity and total relaxation.
Brain Tap involves the following five elements:
- Light pulses to balance brain activity
- Beats and tones to relax brain activity and help you focus
- Auriculotherapy that activates trigger points in your ears
- Ten-cycle holographic music that calms you through sight and sound
- Guided visualization for empowerment

I made my appointment for siatic pain. By chance the day I went in I was on day 2 of a fibromyalgia flare up. All over pain, restricted movement in my neck, limited use of my right arm, and difficulty concentrating. When I left the flare up was over. I had minimal pain in neck, maybe a level 2. I felt Dr. Gawith was very knowledgeable, listened, got alot acomplished in the first visit. He gained my respect by not trying to upsell me on things, he did not expect me to commit to 3 times a week visits, or working on one area of pain at a time to get more visits and money out of me. He gave me all over relief in the first visit. I will definitely go back to him and highly recommend him as a chiropractor your can trust and will get results quickly.
Relieved the pain that was going down my left leg. Moving better today, just as he said. Thanks Herbie H
ALways works me in. Pleasant and professional. Very knowledgeable and best of all brings me great relief! I've recommended many friends and family here and they are happy too!
Dr Gawith always makes time for me and knows my case very well. He also give great at home advice.
Dr. Jayme helps me in many ways not just chiropractic adjustments. If I’m experiencing a problem (even gastric issues) he suggests ways to deal with them in a natural way. He is always willing to suggest I see a MD if need be. A most knowledgeable, sensitive man!!
