Usually when I tell someone I am a chiropractor, they immediately associate my vocation with neck or back pain. They’ll often say, “I used to go to a chiropractor when I threw my back out.”
What they don’t realize is that chiropractic is a healthcare modality that provides significantly more than just a solution for pain. Chiropractic encompasses a lifestyle that involves all aspects of wellness, including exercise, nutrition, personal development, stress relief, and more.
Where does subluxation come from? Lifestyle stresses, perceived as positive and negative, result in nerve interference. For example, during the holiday season many people tend to consume a substantial amount of food and alcohol while spending more time with family (which some would consider stressful). We have seen that after the holiday season people typically get sick, which is caused by subluxation. The food, alcohol, and family represent lifestyle stresses, even if they are labeled as positive, because our body is extremely sensitive to external factors. This is why chiropractic care needs to be an essential component of your life and something we encourage your entire family to consider.
We take the chiropractic lifestyle to a level where it becomes real for you. In addition to addressing nerve system disturbance through the adjustment, we offer programs with tips on fitness, nutrition, and stress relief. We take into account your entire body and the lifestyle choices you make when developing customized protocols for you to follow.
In working with thousands of patients since opening our wellness center, many individuals have asked us, “Why is the food that I put in my body so important to my well-being?”
We share this question with you because the average American has erroneous beliefs around food. Because what you consume is sold in the markets across the land, you assume it’s safe to eat. You may believe the FDA is looking out for your best interests and would not allow foods that could harm us to ever reach the shelves of our supermarkets.
For many people, food and diet are problematic. Instead of being a source of nourishment, food has become an area of conflict and confusion – endless weight loss dramas, eating disorders, cravings, addictions, body image obsessions and never-ending searches for the “best” nutritional system.
The simple process of consumption, assimilation, and elimination has taken over our lives. Food has become cultural and psychological rather than instinctual.We need to learn how to nourish ourselves, sustain our bodies properly, cultivate positive habits, and allow food to nourish rather than punish us.
