Scrambled Nerve Messages
By now you know that your brain, spinal cord and all the nerves of your body control and regulate every cell, tissue, organ and system. Your brain sends nerve messages down the spinal cord, and then out from between each spinal joint to every part of your body.
Beat the heart! Secrete enzymes! Inhale! Exhale! Perspire! More stomach acid! Blink!
Then, each organ and tissue originates its own messages back to the brain, confirming that the instruction was received and acted upon.
The integrity of this feedback loop is vital if you want to be healthy.
These nerve messages to or from your brain can get scrambled or distorted. It happens more often than you think. We call these subluxations. And chiropractors are the only licensed professionals who detect and reduce subluxations. If you know someone who isnt enjoying optimal health, he or she probably has subluxations. Urge them to give us a call.
Celebrating a New You!
Your body performs trillions of tasks each day, without any conscious input from you. One such task is replacing old cells with brand new ones.
You get a new stomach lining every 5 days, new skin every 28 days, a new liver every 6 weeksyour body is in a state of constant renewal.
In the course of every hour, your body produces one trillion new cells. This process allows your body to repair itself, constructing a whole new you.
Its in this renewal that the power of chiropractic care is magnified. How?
Your body looks to its current pattern and structure to guide the placement of new cells. Regular chiropractic helps reduce unhealthy structures.
As new cells replace old cells they do so using the healthier pattern. This is the nature of healing.
Thats exactly what wellness is all about: working with your body to achieve the best you possible!
Long-Term Lifestyle or Short-Term Diet?
Picture yourself training for a 10K race. Or a marathon. Because of your training and preparations you finish the race with a better time than you imagined. Congratulations!
Then you decide to stop training. After all, youve reached your goal.
Do you think your body will maintain that strength and endurance? Of course not.
Spinal health works much the same. Thats why many choose to remain on some type of maintenance or wellness care to help them stay well after they get well.
Thats why you might want to think of your chiropractic care as a long-term lifestyle choice, rather than a temporary diet. Because the results you enjoy are more likely to stay with you if you stick to your training schedule.
