Is Wellness Care something that could improve the overall quality of your life? Most people are raised to believe that we are sick when we have symptoms. Have you ever considered you could be sick without symptoms?
There are a growing number of people that visit chiropractors even though they feel completely healthy. This decision is appealing as people are beginning to see the value of being and feeling their best as often as possible.
The “First” Sign
Most of us have learned to associate having an illness with outward symptoms. For instance, we don’t take a day off work or school unless we are experiencing nausea or a fever, even if we don’t feel “right.” Research is starting to show us that many of the illnesses people in our society suffer are directly related to decisions we are making in our lives. These decisions may affect our bodies and produce problems that do not have, what we consider to be, obvious outward symptoms.
The Body Reacts
Our body does not just react to unhealthy choices, but it also reacts to healthy choices. For example, when you eat overly processed non-nutritious food, your body is stressed to handle it. Over time you are actually creating wear and tear in your body because of this poor food choice. On the other hand, if you regularly eat fresh wholesome highly nutritious food, your body reacts favorably and builds quality tissue and easily carries out repairs and healing.
This is not just about food. If you regularly do not get enough exercise, sit all day at work, and just be a couch potato at home, your body reacts by weakening many of your muscles. It lowers your cardiovascular capacity. It stores much of what you eat as fat since the energy is not needed for movement or muscular maintenance. If you get more exercise and move more through your day, the opposite reactions take place.
The same is true for chiropractic care. If your joints, muscles, ligaments, and nerves are under a constant state of stress by spinal misalignment, your body reacts. It calls other areas in to play for compensation. It experiences congestion of certain places and increased blood flow to others. The nerves that are supposed to communicate to and from the brain begin to send incorrect and often harsh messages. This leads to a loss of full communication within your entire system and ultimately breakdown of the tissues and body parts. On the other hand, if you regularly check and have corrected any spinal misalignments, your body can have optimum balance and function of the joints, muscles, ligaments, and nerves. Over time, the body reacts with healing and strengthening of its processes leading to better and better health.
Health can be defined as the body functioning properly, not just feeling good.
Master Control Center
Everything that occurs in our body throughout the day would not be possible without our nervous system. Your nervous system, controls and coordinates everything that goes on. Interference to this system necessarily causes malfunction. By protecting the nervous system and removing interference, your health drastically improves, along with everything else in your body.
When a symptom is expressed by the body, many times it is a symptom of a deeper problem, rather than an individual concern. Also, problems can build over time and be completely asymptomatic. For example, high blood pressure usually has no symptoms. 40% of the time the first symptom of a heart attack is a severe or fatal heart attack.
