Brandon's India Service Trips

Hello Friends, Family and Colleagues,

Thank you for taking the time to check out my page and see what I'm up to. As some of you may or may not know, I am currently an 11th quarter (out of 14!) student at Life Chiropractic College West in Hayward, CA. I can say without a doubt, I have found my purpose and calling in life and I’m doing everything possible to create opportunities and make the most out of each of them.

In November of 2017 and January of 2018, I will head off to New Delhi (November) and Mumbai (January), India where I will be spending 10 days each trip delivering chiropractic care with other students and Doctors from around the country and world.

I'm traveling with 16 chiropractic students from Life West. This is a committed, focused, and highly intentional group of students with the desire to serve the community of New Delhi and Mumbai at the highest-level possible. Once we arrive in India, we will meet up with everyone including doctors and students from other schools. The service trip is organized through our school, Life Chiropractic College West, and if you would like more information about the trip, I have attached a link:

Some of you may be wondering what exactly is chiropractic and what do chiropractors do…

What is Chiropractic? Chiropractic is the science, art, and philosophy of detecting and removing vertebral subluxations. Subluxations are minor misalignments to the vertebrae in the spinal column that cause interference to the nervous system. When this interference occurs, the body and brain are not able to communicate properly, which results in decreased function. These communication messages can be anything from moving a muscle, to your heart beating, to releasing hormones to help with digestion, to your thoughts that influence your emotions, and so on.

So what do Chiropractors do? Chiropractors locate, assess, and address these subluxations through gentle, specific, and extremely effective adjustments to remove the interference to the nervous system so that the brain and body can communicate its messages properly, allowing the person to function at their optimal level.


Why do I need your help? In order to make this trip a reality it is going to require money. My goal of $3,000 will cover all potential expenses...flights, food, ground transportation and lodging. Food and proper hydration is especially important given the conditions and volume of people we will serve.

From the Heart: If you feel it is in your being to support this cause I am ready to gratefully receive your gift. I appreciate your financial support more than you know. Your support motivates and inspires me to become the best version of myself by not only serving the people of New Delhi and Mumbai, but also continuing to serve my future families and communities. Thank you again!
