Your body can heal itself.

In a normal body, all the parts work together in harmony.  In this state your body goes about its business without you having to give it much thought.

However, when your body is under too much physical, chemical and/or emotional stress it struggles with its normal work.

At these times, you do not feel well and experience one of, or a combination of, the following symptoms: fever, congestion, coughing, sneezing, vomiting, diarrhea and sweating.

These are powerful ways that the body goes about reestablishing internal order and are a sign that something is wrong with your body.

Their individual functions are explained below:

Fever (Inflammation): the rise in temperature creates an inhospitable environment for germs, breaks up waste and increases chemical reactions and metabolism (respiration and digestion).

Congestion: if mucus encapsulates toxins it will be green.  If the mucus is clear the body is eliminating dog hair, pollen or other harmless material.

Coughing: air forcibly dislodges particles from the airways.

Sneezing: water is forced out with air, and as a result the sinuses are cleansed.

Vomiting: a violent ejection of toxins through the mouth.

Diarrhea: a violent ejection of toxins through the colon.

Sweating: an excretion from the skin to cool the body and clear metabolic waste.

When you suppress these natural cleansing processes, you create the terrain for chronic illness.

Healthcare should be about doings things that help the body’s natural ability to heal.  Currently, the most popular methods numb the body and quiet the symptoms or signs that your body is under a lot of stress and is trying to detox.

For example, if someone has a headache they take Tylenol, aspirin or Advil, etc, instead of looking for the cause of the problem which could be a lack of sleep, tension, constipation, dehydration or a toxic buildup.

Most people use chiropractic as they do drugs.  They take their chiropractic adjustment when they do not feel well, like when they have a headache.  While chiropractic is a superior option in acute situations because there are no harmful toxic side effects, there is a lot more to be gained from visiting the chiropractor when you feel well.

Taking care of yourself when you feel well is true health care because you are taking care of your health.  What most people think of as healthcare is actually disease care because they are taking care of themselves once they have a problem.  Healthcare is proactive, while disease care is reactive.

Let’s make an analogy with food.  Most people go on a diet to lose weight.  Healthy people change their lifestyle, which includes getting a sufficient amount of rest and exercise.  As a result they maintain a good weight.  Healthy people eat right all the time because they want to be healthy and stay healthy.  You can also use chiropractic to get well and stay well.

Once you are well, there is no set prescription for how often you should visit the chiropractor.  Some people visit once per week.  Others visit once per month.  It is up to you to find the level of care that will keep you well and keep you moving forward.
