LUKE MILLETT (PRODUCER):  Hey guys, welcome to episode 557 of the Chiro Hustle Podcast. I'm your producer, Luke Millett, and here's your host, James Chester.

JAMES CHESTER (HOST):  So today we have the opportunity of interviewing Dr. Ashley Prince. And if you want to hear the story about motivation in becoming a chiropractor to the future, and what's next in her chiropractic career, stay tuned. Welcome back. This is another episode of the Chiro Hustle Podcast. And today I have Dr. Ashley Prince coming in from the Woodlands area of Houston, Texas. I'm really excited about this episode. I've actually had a chance to go down and visit her in her clinic. It's a beautiful facility. And I know they're doing a lot to serve that community to the highest level that they know how to. But before we get into episode 557, I'm going to let you all know the big Y. Yeah, right? 557 episodes. Wow, awesome. Yeah, so I want to let you know the big Y. Why do we do what we do over here at Chiro Hustle? I'm going to talk about this first. And I've found this to be more true than ever over the past couple of weeks is freedom of speech. We have to protect the Second Amendment. We have to allow people to speak about things that matter to them when it comes to them and their family's health. So that's the second part of what we do is we do protect family health freedom and medical freedom with our show, knowing that chiropractic has a direct influence on both of them and people that practice a chiropractic lifestyle are really excited to have family health freedom and medical freedom and choose chiropractic as somebody that a group of people that can support their health decisions. And as we get into more philosophically, we do protect and support BJ Palmer's last words, which are the sacred trust. I know that if a lot of you don't know what the BJ Palmer sacred trust is, stop the interview right now, go and search for what BJ Palmer sacred trust is. You're going to learn more about chiropractic than you previously did. I guarantee you. And then we do believe and support subluxation based chiropractic and we believe in innate intelligence and universal intelligence. We believe that when men or women of physical gets adjusted, it connects them to men or women of spiritual. And with that being said, Dr. Ashley, welcome to the show.

DR ASHLEY PRINCE DC (GUEST):  Thank you. It's so good to see you.

JAMES CHESTER (HOST):  Yeah, I mean, we are like really doing big work with the chiropractic message and the theme of chiropractic. And we've been doing it for six years. And this being episode 557, I've actually done 1300 interviews in the past six years, all on with the theme and the message of chiropractic. So I'm excited to have this conversation with you today. And I'd really like to open it up for you to just share people, share to people that listen to our show. How did you get into this beautiful profession and tell us your chiropractic story a little

DR ASHLEY PRINCE DC (GUEST):  bit? Wow. Yeah, I've shared this story so many times that it just never gets old. I love chiropractic. I really do. And my life is all about chiropractic. I really grew up in a very sick household. I may have a shiny life and people think that we look good on the outside, but growing up, really, my mom was an alcoholic. So every day, she was sick. And I was kind of like her mom. I took care of my mom. And at a very young age, I knew that our world was broken. I knew that there was something not right. And sickness was a very early part of my life. And at age six, my parents found me in a coma in my closet. And I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. And this just utterly traumatized our family. However, there was a little bit of a blessing behind it because my dad looks at my mom at the hospital and goes, Nancy, it's time for you to get sober. You got to be sober in order to give your daughter her injections. And that doctor told me, you're going to take shots every day. You're never going to be able to eat sugar and you're going to go to diabetes camp. And I just thought, oh my gosh, this is my future. But I had my mom back. I had my mom back. And she stayed sober. I mean, she's sober today. So praise the Lord for that. But we had another big health crisis at 16 when my grandparents caregiving staff from Florida called us. And they said, we need you to come to Florida. I was living in Texas. They said, you need to come to Florida and take care of your grandparents. They're dying. And my grandfather had had several strokes. My grandmother had was diagnosed with Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. And really tough time for a 16 year old to give up high school and all of that. And my grandmother, they both died pretty quickly. But my grandmother, as I was holding her in my arms, I felt the Lord say to me, you're meant to be a doctor. And when he said that, I just looked out and I remember thinking, my community is sick and dying. Like my grandparents or my mother was sick and dying. Like my grandparents, I just felt such a burden at 16, a burden that I was so heavy. And I said, just make me a vessel. God, whatever you want me to do, I will do. Take anything out of me and fill me up with whatever I need to accomplish your mission. And in that moment, I don't know what happened, but something happened because I got shot on a new trajectory that really was totally just out of my comfort zone. I mean, I'm going to, from just being a high school or to biochemistry in college and then getting my master's in business and then moving on to medical school. Many people, many chiropractors don't know that I went to medical school. And that was kind of my first, I thought that that was the route that I was supposed to take. Well, here's the cool part. So I'm a questioner. I like to question every, I like to, I like to question the system, you know, and I know you do too. I question my politics and I encourage you guys, here's some advice. Question everybody, man. Do question those politicians, don't let them just question the doctors, question your mentors, your professors and question us. We don't know everything. You have a question me. And so I said, this doctor was standing up, this was in pharmacology class and we're talking about a young boy who they were going to give some vaccines to and they wanted to give him 12 in one day. And I stand up and I say, doctor so and so, how in God's name can you say that it's okay to give a neurologically compromised boy 12 vaccines in one day? And my student, the class behind me, they're going, yeah, doctor so and so, how is that possible? And he didn't like that. He said to me, you know, future doctor may you sit down and meet me after class? Well, the Lord got ahold of my heart that night and I talked to the Lord and said, you told me to be a doctor, I don't get it. Like, I feel conflicted here. I don't like the drug stuff. I don't like the shot stuff. I feel like I cannot pursue this model. What are we going to do? I can't go this route anymore. I'm three years in and I just, I was so conflicted.

JAMES CHESTER (HOST):  So you tell in the story, I just have to show this. I'm reading a book right now called the vaccine friendly plan. And it's written by a guy named Paul Thomas MD. And he's out of Oregon. Okay. And he's been vilified and marginalized for telling people how to even go a route that's healthy for them with taking shots. And I think that me people know that like, that's not my world that I live in, but I'm still getting educated just like you did and I'm questioning everything. Yeah. So I've looked at like long term things like what is happening to people that have had so many inoculations and why are they getting all its timers? Yeah. You know, why are they getting dementia? Right. Why are they getting Parkinson's? Why are they getting these neurological compromised conditions that like crop up on them when they're in their 50s, when they're in their 60s, when they're supposed to be in their golden years, loving on their grandkids, like when they're supposed to like be at the time of that fantasy word retirement and people are supposed to have the best quality of life with the people that they love the most. But yeah, it's usually a terror. They get to that stage of their life and it's liability for the loved ones, like liability for them. Like it's not a very fun experiential transition at that winter stage of life. So it's really interesting to see like you ask, you know, what if we ask better questions? I think that's really important. And I've heard that the better quality of questions that you ask, the better quality of life that you get. So if we ask better questions, then we can start to be the seekers. And I think that that's really like there's a code around being a seeker. And those are the people that actually transition and change the world. Yeah. You, they're you, Dr. Ashley. Oh, when you're a seeker, you start asking questions like, why does type one diabetes affect me as a kid? Why do I have that? And then you're like, why is my mom doing this stuff with alcohol? Can we help with that? Why is my patient base now dealing with these things, these onset conditions of, you know, whatever we want to call them? I think a lot of times people are calling them, gosh, when people just getting sick, immunodeficiency, not immunodeficiency, but they're calling them, gosh, it's on tip my tongue.

DR ASHLEY PRINCE DC (GUEST):  Look, if they call them auto immune, but I would say there it is. And a body will never attack itself. That's a lie from the pit of hell. Your body will only attack foreign invaders. If there's a pathogen attacking you, your body will kill it. And if it can't kill it, it will do everything in its power too. But your body will never attack its thyroid gland. Hell no, that doesn't happen. So I get passionate.

JAMES CHESTER (HOST):  Yeah, you know, I was explaining to this, this guy came and met me this weekend at mile high chiropractic seminar in Denver, or it's actually Westminster, just north. And he was like, you know, questioning everything because he's never been adjusted before. Guys 38 years old, and he shows up and he's like, Hey, James, I was sent to talk to you. He's like, I know that you're like the advocate for the advocates of this profession. And I was like, yeah, dude, it's pretty cool. And I can tell you a lot of stuff of how we can help each other and how you can move this profession forward with me. But he just came to me. He's like, I feel like an imposter. He's like, I've never been adjusted before. And I go, okay, we're going to fix that right now. Yeah. We're going to get you adjusted. And like he's like his, his manifestation from that, like he's like, I just feel no more pain in my back. Like I know that that's like kind of like what chiropractics become popular for is like helping with pain. But really now he understands the lifestyle of it. Now he's going to get all his little girls under care. Now I was going to get his wife under care. And now he's going to be that truth within his family that says, I'm going to be a change in this. I'm going to be a seeker. I'm going to change the behavior of myself so where it has the ability to change other people. And I think that that's really cool. We're at with this conversation with you is because you decided that I'm going to be a doctor. Yeah. I'm going to become doctor Ashley. I'm going to go out there and serve people and save people and tell them the truth. Like, isn't that empowering?

DR ASHLEY PRINCE DC (GUEST):  I hope it empowers people because I was just a little old girl from Texas, you know, nothing special. But I just knew anger rose up in me and some told me that that wasn't right. And the next day I quit medical school and you know, in my third year and I went to the beach to surf, which is what I normally do to escape reality. But that day when I was on the beach, a chiropractor came up to me and asked if I wanted a job. And that's where really I know my life changed because she was nuts, man. She was like a nothing like I had ever heard before. Her clinic was so amazing because on my first day there, these kids were coming in with ear infections and they're going, she care. My ear's fixed. My ear's fixed. And I knew this woman, all she would say is the power that made the body heals the body, the nervous and controls everything. And I'm like, I didn't really get it, but I just knew I was seeing miracles. Well, she came up to me and said, if you don't let me crack your neck, I'm going to fire you. And when she said that, I was so scared because I heard the tables cracking. You know, I heard all that those sounds. She said, if you don't let me do this, you're not going to understand chiropractic and you won't get it. And so I let her. And that's really where my whole life changed because like I told you, I had type 1 diabetes. Well for 11 days, I could not take my insulin. My blood sugars maintain their own balance. And even if I tried to take my insulin, my blood sugar would shoot down. I mean, I knew something that she did to my neck somehow did something to my pancreas. And I was changed. I said, God, this is what I want to do. This is what you sign me up for. I want to help people with their own equipment, all that's inside of them. That's the healing. That's where it comes from. And that's where I am today. I mean, it's a very simple story.

JAMES CHESTER (HOST):  This is the good stuff. Yes. It's the good stuff why we do this show is because there's always some unsung hero that gets a chance like yourself to fulfill destiny. And you get a chance to go that path. And now you're serving people. And now you're running a facility for the past nine years as a doctor of chiropractic. Now you're actually out there making a mission to understand kids and pediatrics. And you're making a mission of yours to enter public health office, like position and do better for like not just your local community, not just your practice, but the community at large. And I think that that's something that all chiropractors really have this like ethos inside of them. How can we fix ourselves? Let us be the miracle story. And then how can we take our experiential base practice and provide this to the community. And then what do we do next? Because I know so many chiropractors, they don't want to be attached to their practice with the golden handcuffs. They don't want to just like be in 10 years and all they do is adjust. People adapt and people change over time. And some people from day one to day, 30 years into practice, all they want to do is adjust. But there comes a time when people transition to life and it becomes a part of our reality that like what's next? And we should be like excited for what's next all the time and not rest on our old work. But we should learn from our old work. And from the last questions that we asked in the life that we position ourselves into to go to the next thing.

DR ASHLEY PRINCE DC (GUEST):  Yes.

JAMES CHESTER (HOST):  That's like the reality of like the evolution of life. Like you shouldn't live the same day over and over and over and over. Always they call it insanity.

DR ASHLEY PRINCE DC (GUEST):  Yes.

JAMES CHESTER (HOST):  So you go work in this office. What happened next? Did you just immediately like say I'm done working here, I'm going to enroll in chiropractic school?

DR ASHLEY PRINCE DC (GUEST):  Yeah, literally like I was there for a week. And I called up this weird friend of mine that he was I went to college with and he was the only chiropractor I knew. And I'm like, how did you get into chiropractic school? What classes did you have to take? Organic chemistry. Fine. Been there, done that. And I was in, I was in chiropractic school like a few weeks later at Palmer. Wow.

JAMES CHESTER (HOST):  Wow. That's so interesting. Like to me, that's like the way everybody should approach the world and they should approach life with that. That's a zest for existing. And then you're like, okay, so what's next? So you finished school. How did you transition into the real world after you finished diploma land?

DR ASHLEY PRINCE DC (GUEST):  Yeah. So when you said you've been running a practice for nine years, I actually haven't. So I went to the mission field, you know, after chiropractic school a week later, I felt, you know, I talk a lot about God. I hope that doesn't offend people, but he talks to me and he told me to sell all my belongings and move to Africa. And so for six years, I lived in various countries, Costa Rica, Uganda, and I really treated hard to diagnose populations. So I saw, I did everything. I mean, I practice medicine without a license internationally. I can say that online, you know, online because I did. I did what was needed. I set broken bones. I pulled out dirty sutures from legs. I prayed with people. I adjusted people. And it gave me an interest for people. I like zebras. I like people that know doctor on the planet can figure them out. And then they come to my clinic and we just from my experience, I'm like, oh, that's Joaquin Valley fever or oh, that is Epstein bar virus. And I can just, I love that. You know, so I think I think the Lord for taking me to the mission field and getting me that diagnostic experience that I now have in practice.

If you guys are on and watching with us, if you guys are watching us on replay, send messages to both of us, if this sparks up any interest for you, ask better questions. We appreciate everybody that supports our show. This is seriously one of the most really eye opening interviews that I've ever been able to do. People always ask me, Dr. Ashley, like, hey, who's your favorite guest? I'll say, well, the last interview I did. You know, or I'll look at somebody like a luminary, like a world changer like Les Brown and like interviewing Les Brown that changed my life. It proved to me that I was in the game, you know, getting Grant Cardone on our show. Like it proved to me I was in the game, you know, having somebody like John DeMartini be on the show, it proved to me that we were in the game. But it's this story. It's like, what did you do? And that's the thing is we all have a message inside of us. And that's why I tell people I do this show. It's not about me. I do it to share these stories of chiropractic to maybe inspire one person to maybe get one mom to take their kid to the chiropractor because they're dealing with ear infections like the miracles that you saw at that clinic. Or there might be that one person that has a family member that's struggling with a disability that doesn't know where to go or who to trust that now they watch the show and they're like, that's where I need to go, you know, or I need to send a message to James so he can tell me where to go or I need to send a message to Dr. Ashley because she sounds like she's the person for me and she can help me. Like this is the brilliance of like Chiro hustle and why we do it because it's your story that matters the most. And you're going to connect with somebody out there that's watching this and I'd be like, thank you, God. Thank you for that message today. That's what I needed.

DR ASHLEY PRINCE DC (GUEST):  That's the hope.

JAMES CHESTER (HOST):  Yeah.

DR ASHLEY PRINCE DC (GUEST):  You know, I really, I feel like if more chiropractors would not hopefully no one gets mad at me for saying this, but instead of just jumping in to practice and trying to find an associate shift position, could we serve for a year? Could we get out of our comfort zone and not make any money for a year, but instead get all the value of servanthood? You know, I mean, that that's what changed my life and it made me actually not so focused on money when I saw those in need and I went to Africa and I saw that honestly, all the money in the world couldn't make them happy. They were so happy just living each day. Like could we as doctors kind of change the mold and send our young out and serve the world that we want to serve through chiropractic?

JAMES CHESTER (HOST):  You know, like that fit when I was a kid, I used to be really afraid of my brother because he used to like beat me up and God rest his soul. He's not here anymore, but I used to get like this lump in my throat when I had to like stand up for myself. And I see that today within the what we're doing here is chiropractic is just standing up for itself. And I do this show because I get a chance to hear you say the stuff and share your mission and your message because I do believe that it's hard for people to understand that they're coming out of school with you know, quarter of a million dollars in debt or they spent the past eight years and they can't wait to just go out there and become a chiropractor or a business person or become the associate or the independent contractor or start their own business. So I think that there's a lot to be said when it comes to like business development and like managing your career once you get the diploma. I think there's a lot to be said about that. But like when I think about what we're talking about today, one of the things that I really like excited to ask you because it is fundamentally who you are now. Who has influenced you? Who are the people that have poured into you over your early career to become the woman and the doctor that you are today?

DR ASHLEY PRINCE DC (GUEST):  Gosh, I wish that I had a shirt like I love your hat, expect your circles. I need a shirt. I want to promote a shirt that says figure it out. Like that's been my main motivator. Like from people, any mentor that has encouraged me to figure it out, go out there, do it on your own, you know, travel the world, figure it out. Like I'm going to give props to them, probably one of the earliest mentors coming out of chiropractic. Gosh, I always get emotional when I talk about him is Dr. Ben Lerner. He took me and my husband under his wing and he believed in me and he saw the spark in me and he said, you know, you're one of the greatest female chiropractors of your time and I just want to pour into you. He did it without any, I mean, we didn't pay him anything. He didn't request money from us. He coached us when he didn't have to and his schedule was full when he was preaching to Stephen Furtick at Elevation. I mean, the man is busy and he poured into us because he believed in me and he's the one that helped us start a practice debt free. So I really, really, he influenced me greatly and I'll be always indebted to him.

JAMES CHESTER (HOST):  Yeah, we've had Ben on the show.

DR ASHLEY PRINCE DC (GUEST):  Yeah, he is.

JAMES CHESTER (HOST):  And it is really cool when you can meet somebody with that much that's done so much to get chiropractic more involved with the regular world. Like the regular world exists and they don't know chiropractic does what it does because if everybody knew what chiropractors did, there'd be a lineup around their offices, like they would demand more hours at a chiropractic clinic. They'd be like, all right, you guys can't close the day. We need more people here. We need more chiropractic practicing. You guys got to just keep the hours going. No lunches. Like we'll bring you lunch. Like people knew exactly what chiropractic was providing. They would be bringing you guys lunch dinner and breakfast and let you serve from your capacity and letting you just do the work that you do. And there would be no separation. It would just be the chiropractors like Clarence Gonsstead. They're going to live at the, I mean, I heard so many stories of Clarence Gonsstead would work like 18 hour days. People would fly in and stay at his facility. He built a hotel next to his clinic. Like the guy would have people under like constant care for like weeks on end until they were like, he has philosophy is find it, fix it, leave it alone.

DR ASHLEY PRINCE DC (GUEST):  So for me, I worked less than 25 hours a week in the practice. So I feel that work life balance is everything. And most of my creativity comes from when I'm swimming in my pool. But I definitely the 18 hour days, I don't know if I could do that.

JAMES CHESTER (HOST):  Well, it's not so much for you or for the people watching. It's just like what's possible. Yes. And as we upgrade as a profession, what's going to be needed? What are we going to need from each practitioner moving forward? Because all people on the boat have to row. Yes. So what do we get each person to be in the right position, rowing the right way to where we're all going to the right direction instead of circling the wagons and shoot inward? Because that's what I hear that chiropractic does a lot when it comes to somebody practicing differently or thinking differently or doing differently. We're own worst critics. So if we can become a solution and everybody starts throwing the right way, then I do think that like the GDP of chiropractic visits will go up. And the people that are going to be utilizing and wanting chiropractic are going to go up. Like we just saw RFK Jr. speak and done for this past Thursday. And if that man gets a chance to be in office and he says, I think everybody should practice the chiropractic lifestyle and everybody should go get checked for their chiropractor for a functioning nervous system. Like the profession couldn't handle the influx of new patients. But it's going to take something like that to like really change the dogmatic approach of how people have thought about chiropract for the past 128 years.

DR ASHLEY PRINCE DC (GUEST):  That's good.

JAMES CHESTER (HOST):  Yeah. And for everything that you said, and we're kind of on like a poignant transition here, where is the profession headed? Where do you see the profession of chiropractic going? Let's just stay five years from now.

DR ASHLEY PRINCE DC (GUEST):  Gosh. That is… Can I say skip? You can. I know. You know, I wish that I could see that.

JAMES CHESTER (HOST):  It depends on the consciousness of our culture.

DR ASHLEY PRINCE DC (GUEST):  Yeah. I think that we have to see… We have to recognize these other things that are happening below the surface that maybe the traditional medical model has not brought out in the open. Like I'm writing a book right now called The Three Pandemics, and I talk about one of them as like Epstein-Barr virus, for example. A lot of people don't know that that's plaguing the American population in a way that's way more damaging than COVID. And I don't even… One of my pandemics is not even COVID. It's like… I don't even want to talk about that. And if we can just once again, as doctors like question things, look below the surface, I think that we would see our profession go in a totally different direction. Now I do practice functional medicine, so I have to take off my chiropractic hat and put on the functional medicine hat when I make those transitions. But if more chiropractors would ask questions, I think that's where it's at. Like, why do we do the things we do? Why does an insurance like to cover what we do? Just ask questions.

JAMES CHESTER (HOST):  And here's my call to action for chiropractors that will watch this and listen to this, is don't wait on your leaders to do it for you. Yeah. Like, you are the leader. And one of my favorite bands growing up in high school is Rage Against the Machine. And there was a line that I'll constantly theme to people. If we don't take action now, then we'll settle for nothing later. Yeah. Like, we have to take action as a profession. Otherwise we don't have a good answer for what it looks like in five years or 20 years.

DR ASHLEY PRINCE DC (GUEST):  Yeah. And you know what? My associates. So I have two associates and then I have an intern who I just told them. I said, you have two weeks to fill out a really in-depth strategic marketing plan. I want you to go out in the community and make relationships with 25 businesses. And he's like two weeks, yes, two weeks, and you've got to make relationships with these people. And he's like, I want to see what he can figure out. Can you do it? Can you figure it out? Can you ask questions? Can you do it? We need more doctors like that.

JAMES CHESTER (HOST):  It's even better. I just made a post on my Facebook three hours ago. What's the quickest and most effective way to get people in your office on a very, and I mean, very small budget? And that has already 40 comments on there. So yes, your intern associates should go read that post because there's a value of knowledge on that one post that somebody can take and then go implement today. I'll just tell somebody a quick hit. Go and build a relationship with the area urgent care seven miles around your office. Go and meet those people that are running those facilities and treat them well, get to know them well, and say, hey, I know you deal with a lot of cases. A lot of people could probably use what I do over at our clinic. If people come in and they need crisis care, I'm going to bump them to you. But if you guys got people that come in that you know that we can help as a facility, they'll probably become your number one for all resource. And then I would say go meet the area joint. Don't talk bad about them. Yeah. Say, hey, we shoot x-ray over here. We take hot disks. We'd handle radiculopathy. We like people in sciatica. I know you guys have a hard time with those cases because you don't do the type of thorough exams as we do with our systems that we run. So I want to acknowledge you and treat you really well and say, hey, we appreciate what you're doing for the community. We don't look at you as an adversary. We look at you as somebody that we can work with. So if you just went and did those two strategies with people already getting volume of people coming through, they're going to say, okay, Dr. Ashley's in the woodlands. She actually shoots x-rays and she can help people with disk issues. Go see her. Hey, I know you slipped and fell and you got an issue going on with your lumbar spine. We don't do with that at the urgent care. All we're going to do is prescribe something to you and we don't want to do that to you. We want you to go somewhere where they can actually help you. Go see Dr. Ashley.

DR ASHLEY PRINCE DC (GUEST):  I want to also say that these young chiropractors, the interns, the people just coming out of school, they have to do a little bit of that push advertising. I call it push marketing. So they got to get out there and really kind of attack. Whereas when you've been in the game for a little bit, you take more of a back approach and it's more about pull. So like for me, what kind of content can I put out to irritate people? Irritate people. And then they're kind of like, who is she? And it pulls to you instead of you pushing, pushing, pushing. So that kind of comes after you've been in the game for a little bit.

JAMES CHESTER (HOST):  So I know we're coming up on the edge of our time together. This has been such a dynamic episode of Cara Hustle Podcast. It's 557 of these. We've been delivering this stuff for six years to you guys. We love what we do over here. We're always bringing the best people to the show to share their knowledge and their enthusiasm and love for chiropractic. I made the second post. Life is designed to be lived from the inside out rather than from the outside end. Things from the outside cannot fill us on the inside. And that's been the philosophy of Cara project since I got into it. It's above, down, inside out. The body needs nothing extra in it. It simply needs no interference. Once we clear up that neurological interference, the body is a self-healing organism. The body is amazing. We have everything inside of us. The greatest doctors inside of the body. That's the real message here. Is the greatest doctor in the world is the one inside of you. And then if you can get somebody to clear out the subluxation, then there's no nerve interference. It's not a self-regulate, self-healing, it's organic, it's not mechanistic. There's no musculoskeletal. It's all subluxation. We're a vitalistic profession. We give people their life back. And you guys are just one adjustment away from that quality of life. In closing, Dr. Ashley, is there anything I didn't ask you that you like to share with their audience today and how can people reach out to you if they want to?

DR ASHLEY PRINCE DC (GUEST):  Gosh, yeah. I think I have like five things to pronounce. So you can message any of them, my social media team will respond to you. But I want to just say, focus on your miracle stories, focus on the stories in your clinic that are happening that you really don't have an answer for. I will close with one story that really changed my life. I had a young patient. Well, I saw him walking down my street. He was one of my neighbors. And I saw him walking on his tiptoes. And his name was Michael and I invited the family in. I said, I'll do a complimentary neurological assessment on your son. I just want to see what's up. And when he came in, I mean, his father was with him. Father didn't make much facial expressions or anything. And when I adjusted Michael for the first time and Michael's on the autism spectrum. So he never knew it, but his family did. They had never gotten him diagnosed or anything. But his family knew it. Well, anyway, I did one upper cervical adjustment on him. And man, my upper cervical adjustment is quite a bit different than what we're taught in school. I encourage you to create your own adjusting style. Don't follow Thompson. Don't follow all these gaunts. I mean, create your own. That's what I want from my associates. I teach them to create their own styles. Create your own technique. It's art. Yeah, it's an art. And so I adjusted Michael one time and he started hysterically laughing. I mean, just his stick crying, like hysterically laughing. And I look over at his father and a tear is coming. And this is a German man, no facial expression. And a tear is coming out of his eye. And I said, why are you crying? And he said, I have never, my son is 14 years old. And I have never seen him laugh. That's the power of what we get to do. That's what we get to do.

JAMES CHESTER (HOST):  Amen. Yeah. And that's it. You know, there's so much that a chiropractor can provide to people that don't know they have hope. And that's the beauty of the adjustment. That's the beauty of why we do the shows because of the message you just shared. Um, let's bring laughter back to people.

JAMES CHESTER (HOST):  Yes.

JAMES CHESTER (HOST):  Yes. Let's bring joy back to people. Let's bring hope back to people. And that's really why I've never given up on chiropractic as I've worked in the profession for the past 15 years. I know that there's a place for people to be educated and not pushed educated, but pulled educated. And I believe that your story today is going to be something that resonates with the pull effect of chiropractic rather than the push effect of chiropractic. And every time I've heard a chiropractor say, we need to educate more people, it feels like a push effect. So let's work on that pull effect that you talked about. And let's reach more lives and ask better questions. And with that, this is episode 557 of the Chiro Hustle podcast. You know how to reach out to Dr. Ashley find around the socials. And I close up by telling everyone, you guys are just one story way. Keep hustling. I'll see you guys on our next episode. Thank you so much, Dr. Ashley. Bye. Thank you. Bye for now.
