Good health is your natural state. You care born to live a life of vitality, strength, peace and happiness – you are supposed to be healthy your entire life. That life should be long and full of joy, excitement, pleasure and fulfillment.
However, it does not always happen that way. Too many people are not living to their potential; they are living with physical and mental disease. It isn’t right. You have the potential for physical and mental health and you owe it to yourself to drink from that deep well.
What are some of the things you can do to reclaim health for yourself and your family and maintain your health throughout the years?
1. Stay subluxation free.
The chiropractic profession discovered that internal structural distortions called subluxations can cause serious health problems. Subluxations stress your nervous system and interfere with communications among your organs, glands, muscles and other body parts – including your brain and your immune system. Subluxations can be caused by any trauma: difficult birth, falls, accidents, emotional upset, chemical toxicity, overwork or a combinations of factors – i.e., physical chemical, or emotional stress while you are tired, overworked or malnourished.
2. Eat nutrient dense foods.
Some foods give you an abundance of life-sustaining nutrients – these are known as “nutrient dense” foods. Other so-called “foods” have no nutritional value or even negative nutritional value – they brain you of nutrients. Among foods with negative nutritional value are highly processed “junk foods” manufactured with sugar, high fructose corn syrup and white flour.
Nutrient dense foods include healthy fats and oils (olive, avocado and coconut oils, butter), and grass-fed beef. Most fruits and vegetables are nutrient dense and most of us do not eat enough of them on a daily basis.
3. Cleanse yourself of toxins.
To ensure perfect health we need to keep our bodies free of toxins that can interfere with the function of our nerves, muscles, glands, tissues and cells. These toxins include mercury, aluminum, copper and other heavy metals found in vaccines and dental amalgams (“silver” fillings). Toxins can also arise from dental infections, root canals, cigarettes and environmental pollution.
A common source of Toxic pollution is drugs, whether over-the-counter, prescribed or recreational. It is wise to limit drug use as much as possible. Read up on prescription drugs you or your loved ones may be taking and discuss them and other potions with your healthcare provider.
4. Stay hydrated.
Drinking alcohol, coffee, sugary soft drinks and even distilled water actually dries you out. Dehydration has been linked to depression, high blood pressure, disc problems, muscle weakness, heart problems, vision problems, fatigue, exhaustion and many other physical and mental conditions. Drinking good quality spring water or filtered water (you can add a dash of sea salt) is very good for you and necessary to prevent disease and maintain good health.
People sometimes ask how Chiropractic can improve their health. The answers depend on whom you ask. For some women menstrual and pregnancy problems have been resolved through Chiropractic. A mother whose child was helped may say that Chiropractic is for ear infections, asthma or colic. A teacher may say Chiropractic has helped students with dyslexia, vision and leaning disorders. Others may declare Chiropractic is for back aches, disc problems, and arthritis, high or low blood pressure.
In addition to all of the above, Chiropractic can help everyone live a drug-free, health lifestyle.
