Let me ask you a question, would you rather be HEALTHY or just not sick? What are you focusing on when it comes to your health, getting away from something, or creating something? We know what you focus on expands. Let’s focus on the right thing.
What Does It Mean- Just Not Sick?
So if a person is not sick, doesn’t that mean they are healthy? Take a look at the picture below. The dots represent two people, #2 has symptoms, #1 doesn’t. As you can see person #1 is still quite a ways down the road toward sickness, but they are currently in the comfort zone. While person #2 has crossed over into symptoms which in this case is not far from person #1. Health is not a state, it is a process that takes time. In order to have symptoms, health has had to deteriorate over time.
There are only two ways to cause your symptoms to reduce or be relieved:
One is to cover the symptom with pills, powders, potions, lotions, injections, surgeries, or other treatments. This is often the method western medicine uses to reduce symptoms. Unfortunately, while these approaches may bring comfort, they do not turn the direction of one’s health around.
The other way to handle symptoms is to reverse them by turning a person’s health around. What does that mean? Well instead of just covering up the symptom, you get to the underlying cause of the problem and remove it. This not only relieves the symptoms but it increases a person’s overall health and wellness. This is what we call a vitalistic approach to health.
How Does Chiropractic Help A Person Get Healthy?
Our objective is to turn the direction of your health around so it moves towards healthy. We do that by removing interference from the master system of the body, the nervous system. The nervous system controls and coordinates all the other systems in the body. Chiropractic adjustments remove any interference from the nerves to make sure they work as intended. When everything is working properly, not only does it reduce or relieve symptoms, it also helps move you towards health.
Let me ask you just one question- with the relief of symptoms, is this person healthy or just not sick? Just because there are no symptoms doesn’t mean that the person is healthy. Healthy is the continuous movement of health in the right direction.
