Symptoms are a warning sign.
Headaches are not normal, backaches are not normal. Numbness and tingling are not normal. These and countless other symptoms that prompt people to consult a chiropractic office are often the result of years of neglect.
Covering up the symptoms with medication ignores the underlying cause and delays the healing process.
It surprises many clients when they discover chiropractic doctors don’t treat symptoms. A medical approach is to treat symptoms. This is done by using drugs or surgery to numb, slow down, speed up, or cut out the malfunctioning body part. Instead, chiropractic doctors find the underlying cause or causes of your ache or pain, and help correct it.
The victim of a heart attack is suffering from ill health long before the first symptom. The same with the Vertebral Subluxation Complex.
Judging your health by how you feel can be dangerous! The first symptom of high blood pressure is often a deadly stroke. The first symptom of heart disease could be a fatal heart attack! Because your body is so adaptive, by the time many symptoms warn you of a problem, it can be well advanced.
So the question remains, would you rather be healthy or just feel good?
Allergic reactions aren’t the result of a lack of antihistamine medication, but a lack of your body’s ability to adapt to some irritant.
You can be healthy and still not feel well. Vomiting after eating improperly prepared food is a healthy response. Taking a drug to prevent your body from expelling the toxic food could be deadly! Fevers, diarrhea, and other symptoms are natural ways your body responds to infection and disease.
When spinal function improves, your symptoms usually improve too.
Proper function, controlled by your nervous system, is the key to health. Fortunately, the proper function of your nervous system is the primary interest of your chiropractic doctor.
