Are Germs the Enemy?

Are germs the enemy?

Did you know that germs by themselves are not always bad for your body?

Many have been raised to believe that germs will make us sick, but that’s only partially true. There are many good types of germs, or bacteria, that benefit the body.

For instance, that lactobacillus acidophilus in your yogurt is a good “gut” germ that aids in digestion.

Other germs are harmful, but they need a hospitable host to allow them to thrive and cause illness. When our bodies are weak due to poor nutrition, lack of sleep or nervous system interference, they are the perfect breeding ground for germs that cause colds, flus and a variety of other ills.

Regular chiropractic care, along with our advice on healthy eating, exercise and stress-free living, may help to build a strong defense against unwanted germs. Taking a proactive approach to your health means that “bad” germs won’t thrive, but you will!

Introducing Doctor You

Introducing Doctor You

Regardless of a doctor’s specialty, the school they graduated from or their years of experience, they can’t cure headaches, mend broken bones or heal a wound. Only you can do that… If your healing ability isn’t impaired.

Your inborn healing ability is responsible for the tremendous success that chiropractic patients enjoy. The only thing doctors can do, regardless of their discipline, is to help reduce barriers to the incredible healing ability you were born with.

Which is why we’re interested in your nervous system. It’s what controls every cell, tissue, organ and system of your body. The nerves along your spine are the most vulnerable part of your nervous system.

By reducing nervous system compromise from the moving bones of your spine, Doctor You takes over and does the healing!

The Danger Lurking in Your Medicine Cabinet

NSAIDs: otherwise known as non-steroidal anti-inflammatories, can be obtained over-the-counter or by prescription to relieve aches and pains.

But are you aware of the risks? These drugs can have serious adverse effects. Gastrointestinal bleeding, muscle cramps, increased risks of heart problems and irregular heart rhythms, even death can be attributed to them.

Why risk these unwanted effects to merely mask or cover up an important way your body talks to its owner. The truth is, these drugs, while convenient, merely trick your body so it can’t feel the pain. The cause is still there.

We take a different path. We locate and reduce the actual cause of your pain. It starts with a thorough chiropractic examination. Some say, it’s the most complete exam they’ve ever had.

Then, as our precise chiropractic adjustments target the underlying nerve interference, symptoms subside as your body’s ability to self-heal is revived. Problem solved. Naturally.
