To live a health life at the most basic level, we all know that there are certain habits that must be maintained on a consistent basis.
Want health teeth? Brush a few times daily, floss at least once a day, and visit your dentist for regular check-ups.
Healthy bodily hygiene requires that you shower or bathe daily.
Living at a healthy bodyweight results from consistently eating the right types of foods, and regularly engaging in some form of exercise.
Most importantly, living your life at your absolute healthiest, with 100% nerve flow and maximum expression of life requires clearing the body of subluxations and then maintaining that correction through consistent wellness adjustments.
These are the truths that cannot be denied. When you quit performing any of these proactive habits, its corresponding aspect of health begins to decline.
So let’s say you did give up these habits. What would happen to your state of health as it relates to that activity?
Quit brushing and flossing and you risk losing your teeth. As undesirable as this would be, you can still live without a mouthful of teeth. Sure it’s more difficult, but you would survive.
Give up bathing and, while your circle of friends would quickly diminish, you would be in no imminent threat of losing your life.
Stop exercising or eating well and soon your neglect will be written all over your expanding body.
Start powering down the nervous system however, and your quality of life plummets right along with it. Shut the nervous system down completely, and you die.
This is not to imply that if you give up your wellness adjustments death is imminent, but it does speak volumes toward the importance of keeping the power of the central nervous system firing freely at all times.
Life revolves around the nervous system and when spinal bones become misaligned, or subluxated, the power that runs the body from the brain down is diminished.
As important as it is to correct spinal imbalances and restore motion and function to the spinal column, it is just as critical to maintain that correction. A lifetime of preventative, wellness chiropractic care is one of the healthiest habits that you can engage in.
