Most likely you were born in perfect health, but perfect health can be hard to maintain. Falls, major or minor accidents, birth stress, family stresses, work complications, financial concerns, food choices and life in general can all slowly take their toll. Perhaps you have not been feeling well or you have been diagnosed with a disease or condition. How do you recover your health? How do you optimize your health?
Many people turn to drugs when they have a health problem. While drugs may be necessary at times, in many cases drugs merely cover up or suppress symptoms. In other words, drugs DO NOT promote healing. You may feel a little better, but you are still sick – you just aren’t experiencing the pain or other warning signs your body is giving you. If drugs healed people, then those who took the most drugs would be the healthiest. The longer you stay on drugs, the greater the chances of drug reactions, side effects and weakening of your overall vitality and strength.
Others may turn to surgery, which can also be necessary at times. Obviously, this is a serious type of healthcare intervention as every surgery is fraught with risks and dangers.

The Goal of Chiropractic
The goal of Chiropractic (and many other natural healthcare systems) is to assist the body’s effort to function optimally so that you can live your life in as perfect health as possible with high resistance to disease, good elimination and a strong immune system while radiating happiness, balance, poise, grace and energy.
The Importance of Correcting Subluxations
Chiropractors locate and correct subluxations in your body. Subluxations affect nerves, muscles, bones, organs, glands and tissues. Uncorrected subluxations weaken your body, unbalance your skeletal system, put stress on your nerves and organs, lower your resistance to disease and sap your energy. You may feel tight, weak and experience premature aging. Subluxations can also affect brain function to the point where the brain may not function at its peak causing your concentration to be weak.
When you are in a subluxated state you are said to be dis-eased meaning that your body is simply not working right, has lowered resistance to disease and is in a pre-disease state. Your health can then deteriorate to the point where you contract a named disease – a cold, flu, backache, disc problem, vision or hearing problem, headache, arthritis, heart trouble, cancer, etc.
Subluxations Are Painless
Subluxations are health-destroying and yet they are painless. They are very common and most people develop them at some time in their lives. You could have multiple subluxations in your body and have no idea something is wrong – until disease or illness “suddenly” strikes you.
It Takes Time to Get Sick and to Get Well
No one goes from perfect health to horrible illness overnight – it takes time. This is the period of time when your chiropractor would tell you that you have dis-ease. Your resistance to disease is lowered, your body may be accumulating toxins and you have lost that healthy bounce to your step. The glow to your skin has disappeared and the twinkle in your eye has become lackluster and dull. It didn’t happen overnight, but took time as your body slowly started to break down.
Because every illness takes time to develop and true health takes time to regain, it is important to keep yourself subluxation free. Since you don’t necessarily know if you have subluxations, periodic chiropractic checkups will help you maintain your improved health and continue the healing process that you’ve already begun.
So the best reason to continue care is YOU! You deserve to live the rest of your life in the best possible health, tapping into your full potential, maximizing your life expression and that goes for your family too!
