Dr. Cotey Jordan shares his Migraine Story
My name is Dr. Cotey Jordan. Today I would like to share with you my story.
By the age of 10 I was already struggling putting up with debilitating migraines. While other kids were playing outside I was sitting in a dark quiet room crying myself to sleep just wishing these damn headaches away. Reaching for pills, medications, in the medicine cabinet for whatever I could get my hands on became my new normal, my routine. I remember the 2 in the morning ER visits like they were yesterday. I did everything that the experts told me to do. I took the pills, I took the drugs, I took the medications, the lotions, the pills, the injections. Nothing was helping. The frequency, the urgency, the intensity of the migraines became so debilitating that they were catching up to me. They were effecting my military training. I felt helpless. Quite frankly, I was hopeless.
Looking back I knew I had to do something and to my surprise this gentleman was reaching out to help me. I remember like it was yesterday. He looked me square in the eyes and said "Son, I want you to go to my doctor for your condition." I was floored. It turns out his doctor was a corrective care chiropractor. At 21 years old I had no idea what chiropractic was. I had never heard of a chiropractor. So I walked into this office, this environment that is so new to me, and I'm looking around and I can't believe what I'm seeing. These patients are happy, excited to be there, they are full of joy and energy and vitality. It was wild. And then I get this doctor who gives me an experience that I've never had before. He was curious. He asked me questions. He wanted to know how my condition was affecting my quality of life. I get chills just thinking about it. I knew I was in the right place. This guy inspired me to want to be healthy again, to be strong, and not only that he took it to the next level, he empowered me. He did it by explaining why my body was doing what it was doing.
I went back to school to become a chiropractor. I know it sounds absolutely crazy. And looking back it is crazy! Some people spend an entire lifetime searching for their life purpose and for some reason at the young age of 21 mine reached out to me and grabbed me, it smothered me. And not only did it change my life, it has led me to my calling. So now that I'm in my mid 30s I have more energy, more vitality, I'm more productive. I look good, I feel better than I ever have. I am empowered! I am in control of my life. And as powerful as that story is; it's not even about me. It's because one man, one man who I didn't even know, reached out to me and introduced me to this principle that I wasn't even aware of. And I think back from the age of 10 to 21` and I was miserable. My parents and I were misled. We were put through the ringer. We tried anything and everything to no avail. And it's not that my parents didn't love me, they simply didn't know. Although I'll never get those years back, the important thing here is my kiddos, my 6 year old daughter and my 4 year old little girl, will never to suffer like I did. And on top of that there are thousands of families that I have been able to help, and inspire, and empower to take complete control of their health because I know that here in America we are experiencing a health crisis. I know there are millions out there just like me. You've been through the ringer. You've tried everything and anything. I'm here to tell you there is a better way. If you want to be healthy, if you want the chance of taking your health into your hands so that you can live out your life purpose and serve it to the best of your ability, I recommend you get checked by a specific, subluxation-based chiropractor. It will change your life.
