Within the body lies an innate intelligence…
This wisdom coordinates, heals, motivates and ensures every action and reaction in the body. It is perfect and ever present.
Chiropractors work with the nervous system which is comprised of the brain & spinal cord.
If the nerve system is free of interference, the innate intelligence is allowed to flow freely and as a result, your body, mind and spirit will function at a higher level.
CHIROPRACTIC = WELLNESS
Widespread practicing of a chiropractic lifestyle is THE solution to the health care crisis in this country!
There is a growing body of evidence showing that wellness care provided by doctors of chiropractic may reduce health care costs, improve health behaviors and enhance patient perceived quality of life. Until recently, little was known about how chiropractic adjustments affected the chemistry of biological processes on a cellular level. But that is all changing.
Most people think of chiropractors as bone doctors that specialize in back pain and neck problems. While chiropractic is often very helpful in alleviating back and neck pain, this limited characterization of chiropractic is way off the mark.
Chiropractors are not bone doctors; they are nerve doctors! That is, chiropractors locate spinal misalignments called subluxations that cause nerve interference. Chiropractors assist the body in dealing with those subluxations through chiropractic adjustments. The result being optimal nervous system function is restored. Since everything we experience or express in our lives is processed through our nervous system, our quality of life is improved when we have a properly functioning nervous system. Likewise, it is impaired when we have nerve interference. How do you know if you have nerve interference? You go to a chiropractor who is a specialist in locating subluxations (a state of less “light”).
It could take years of nerve interference before any symptoms appear. However, a lack of symptoms does not mean lack of sickness or dis-ease in the body.
Think of it this way. When you cut your finger, does the band-aid heal the wound? Your body heals it all by itself.
YOUR BODY IS SELF HEALING!
When you eat lunch, do you have to concentrate on making sure your body digests the food properly?
Do you have to think about taking a breath when you need oxygen? Your body does all those things by itself.
YOUR BODY IS SELF REGULATING!
What is the master controller of the body?
It’s the Nervous system: the brain and spinal cord. Without these, you wouldn’t amount to much!
The brain is the central processing unit for the body that sends and receives signals through the spinal cord and nerve system to and from every cell, tissue, organ and system in the body.
What happens to our bodies ability to self-heal and self-regulate if there is nerve interference and those signals can’t get to and from our brain properly? It’s compromised and our health and quality of life ultimately suffers.
This is why getting your spine and nervous system checked regularly by a chiropractor is so important to your health and quality of life!
How do you know when you have nerve interference? In most cases, you don’t.
How do you get subluxations? Stress, physical strain, biochemical influencers, and emotional traumas are all forms of subluxation. How we treat our bodies, what we put in our bodies, and what’s on our minds can all cause subluxation that in turn causes nerve interference and a decreased quality of life.
Living a chiropractic lifestyle not only means getting regular chiropractic care but also exercising regularly, putting the right things in your body (healthy foods, drinks) limiting the wrong things we put in our bodies (junk food, nicotine, alcohol, prescription drugs, illegal drugs) and working on our emotional wellness and mindset.
We CAN CHOOSE how healthy we want our bodies to be, it’s up to all of us to choose which path to travel. We can either keep the body healthy from birth by natural means of prevention or wait until something life threatening strikes and then reevaluate what to do about your lifestyle.
Imagine if our communities adopted the chiropractic lifestyle on a widespread basis.
How much less chronic disease would we have? How many less hospital visits would we have?
How many less prescription drugs would we need to take?
How much money would be saved in our health care budgets that could be allocated to better education, better infrastructure, more economic development, more cultural initiatives….etc?
A widespread practicing of a chiropractic lifestyle is THE solution to the health care crisis in this country!
Everyone who has a spine should be checked for subluxation, especially children. As soon as they are born they should be checked and be on a regiment of periodic spinal checks for subluxation. The birth process can be traumatic to the nervous system. as well. Imagine what could be avoided if children were checked from their first breath of air.
