This Christmas season, I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to serve the community as a guide, coach, and teacher of health and healing. I've been seeing more and more mental lightbulbs turn on this year as people are beginning to take charge of their health, and understand that pharmaceutical companies are not benevolent-driven, but are profit-driven enterprises.
The mass cultural hypnosis that has gotten sucked into the medical model of symptom treating is following the smooth, flat, easy path that requires no personal effort. Therefore, it is no surprise that it does not produce health. Those choosing chiropractic are pursuing health, following the narrow, challenging, and ultimately rewarding path. Our health is our individual responsibility, and symptom treating is not health care, it is sick care. When you use sick care as health care, you end up with a sick society and a health care crisis.
Since the 1960's we have annually increased our consumption of drugs and surgery. Guess what...since the 1960's we have progressively gotten sicker and sicker as a nation. Who thinks we need more drugs and surgery? Currently, the US ranks 37th in overall health while it spends more than any other country on health care and consumes over 90% of the worlds pharmaceuticals!
Health is largely wisdom that was passed down through generations (eat well, move well, think well). At some point, our common sense was taken away by convenience, advertising, and marketing. The secret to a healthy life and feeling young is to keep your body moving properly so it does not deteriorate prematurely (chiropractic adjustments, exercise, good posture), eating from nature's medicine cabinet (raw fruits and vegetables, grass-fed & hormone free meat), and maintaining hope, faith, and an optimistic outlook (translation: TURN OFF THE NEWS!)
What I'm trying to get to is that drugs and doctors do not heal (that is right, chiropractors included). Only the power within your body, and your Creator can heal. As the developer of chiropractic stated, "Nature needs no help, just no interference."
As a chiropractor, I remove the interference so your body can flourish.
