I was thinking about why more patients don't continue with chiropractic adjustments on a regular basis. Don't get me wrong, many do, and they are the people that are having not only better health, but better mental attitudes, better relationships, and frankly a better quality of life.
What can we only do once each month that is beneficial. We can clean out the garage, get an oil change in our car, or take a monthly vacation. These things would be great and useful..but what about our health and health potential / outlook.
What does our health potential / outlook mean. It means where are you headed with your FUTURE health. Are you a heavy smoker that is overweight with no exercise? Well then your future health looks bad vs. the person that exercises, eats well, and does not smoke. Most of us never look at our health in the future. What is going to happen next year, or the next 5, or even the next 10. AND WE ALL SHOULD. We should remember that as we continue with our lives, that there will be a conclusion to the story of your life. WHY WAIT UNTIL JANUARY 1 to make a change in your health? Start now!
It pains me when I see kids that could benefit from a small change with nutrition, or some vitamins, and chiropractic care, but fall victim to the too much medical drug route or because of their parents poor food choices. Kids with heavy asthma or allergies that cannot enjoy their life as it was meant to be saddens me. Allowing kids to consume whatever they want and watch their health potential get ruined before they were even given a chance to excel, is sad. ( that is why I am writing a book for parents so their kids can maximize their health and development. )
Regardless of where you view your health, or your kids, our health attitude should always be proactive vs. reactive. Reactive is the day when your car does not start and you thought it would and now you are in crisis mode. Are you going to wait for your back to go out or your headaches to magically go away?
When you neglect your health, your body will let you know. You will end up with all the typical aches and pains and lots of prescription meds. Drug companies don't want to FIX you, they want to maintain the status-qua. Keep you on blood pressure meds and cholesterol drugs. Long-term regular use of drugs keeps the $$$$$$ flowing. It is funny that I have patients that take ZERO medications that are in their 60's,70's, and 80's and are vibrant. On the flip side, the patients that take the MOST medications are the ones that spend their life going to doctors getting their prescriptions and are walking zombies.
Can you come exercise one time per month to offer benefits? Can you brush your teeth one time each month to offer benefits? I don't think those will offer any long-term changes with your health. But I do know that people that continue with full-spine chiropractic care. They DO have better health. And here are the reasons:
1. The adult spine gets misaligned and stuck with lack of full motion. This leads to disc degeneration, dessication ( lack of fluid in the disc ), arthritic change, and "spinal" nerve pressure.
2. Spinal nerve pressure creates muscle spasms that further restrict spinal motion and maybe pain. This also decreases nerve flow, blood flow, oxygen, and lymph drainage to and from your organs, muscles, tissues, and cells.
3. With lack of the above in # 2, your health breaks down and then comes symptoms. With symptoms comes medications or injections for symptom relief without ever addressing the problem. AND A LOWER STANDARD OF LIFE.
4. With adjusting and aligning the vertebrae this allows FUNCTION at the highest level. This reverses the problems from above and YOUR body will operate correctly and optimally.
People under monthly care USE less medications, require less surgery, and have more energy. FACT! So people save money on overall healthcare, not the opposite. Research tells us that if spinal nerve pressure is not removed in about 30 days, whatever that nerve supplies, i.e. kidney, bowels, thyroid, muscles, etc., will result in death at the cellular level. That means you are not as healthy as you could have been.
Chiropractic is not only neck and back pain help. It is recalibrating the human machine to function and it's highest possible level. Take a look at my website ( www.BecomeHealthier.com ) and click on the articles tab, find out what chiropractic can do for YOU. I know it, I live it, and so do my kids. Not one medication or injection for my 3 children. Never, ever!
I received my adjustment yesterday and I walked out of there BETTER. Not pain wise, but functioning wise. There is a reason why professional athletes and Olympic athletes ALL use chiropractic care. FOR OPTIMAL PERFORMANCE.
On my 100th birthday, I am going to adjust 100 people. What are you going to do on your 100th birthday? If you don't know then it is time you attend my How To Stay Young Class: The 1st 100 Years! Call my office and get adjusted for LIFE!
