How do you define health?
Many people think they are healthy because they have no pain. However, lack of pain doesn’t mean you are healthy. You can have undetected disease like cancer or diabetes but have no pain.
According to WHO “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”.
Our body is controlled by the nervous system. The brain, spinal cord and nerves. Our brain and spinal cord are well protected by the skull and spine. Our nervous system sends signals from the brain to the cells throughout the body and relays information back to the brain. Just like how a traffic jam in the middle of the highway can cause delays, when there’s an interference in our nervous system our body cannot function at its maximum potential.
Anything that interferes with the proper nervous system function is called a subluxation.
What are the causes of subluxation? There are three major components: Emotional stress, Chemical stress and Physical stress (the 3 T’s- Thought, Toxin, Trauma).
One common example is a spinal subluxation (Vertebral Subluxation). The misalignment in our spine can compress and irritate the surrounding nerves, causing nerve interference.
So, what is true Health and well-being?
Health = ↓ 3 T’s and ↓ Subluxations
True health and well-being can be achieved by reducing the 3 T’s (thought, trauma, toxin) and subluxations.
This allows you to achieve maximum healing potential with proper function of the nervous system.
Chiropractors prescribe spinal adjustments to reduce subluxations and help restore the nervous system to facilitate your body to heal itself.
Please take care of your body and include Chiropractic care to live at your maximum potential.
