Chiropractic Fires Up Your LIFE!

A chain reaction occurs when a small event ignites a reaction nearby, setting off another reaction, then another, until it produces an ultimate result. Getting your health back with Chiropractic care happens in a similar way.

Chiropractors start the process with a small event called an Adjustment. Spinal adjustments restore a state of Ease in your nerve system which ignites Healing. Over Time your body's internal Functions light up and you experience Benefits like stronger immunity, deeper sleep, greater physical performance and a confident sense of well being. The ultimate thing that lights up is your LIFE.

The goal of Chiropractic is to ignite Life within you so you can regain your health, fulfill your purpose and bring more joy to those around you. Staying 'lit up' with regular Chiropractic care is one of the best gifts you can give yourself and those you love the most.

Harvard Agrees With Chiropractic

At first glance you'd think a Chiropractor was responsible for these words. But they were actually written by a Harvard medical school instructor in the late 1800's. While this belief is trivialized by the medical and pharmaceutical community today, it remains the core foundation of the practice of Chiropractic.

Chiropractors humbly acknowledge that "the ONLY thing that can heal the body is the Power that created it." The wisdom Dr. Cabot refers to in his quote is called Innate Intelligence by Chiropractors. It is the genius of Life that animates our cells, tissues and organs. It is the coordinating force that maintains our body's intricate chemical balance. It silently and knowingly orchestrates all steps involved in the healing process from mending a broken bone to putting cancer in remission. It is in favor of you living, rather than you dying.

The most important job of a Chiropractor is to teach you about this great force and keep you connected to it. If you want to meet the REAL doctor responsible for healing you, take a look in the mirror. It’s the one staring right back at you.

“Pharmaceutical False Start”

Spike a fever – run for some Tylenol. Get an ear infection – dash for an antibiotic. Big Pharma wants us to race for a drug every time a symptom or illness challenges us. But is it better to let your body run its own race without interference from the drug companies?

Research reported in the Journal of Leukocyte Biology found evidence that elevated body temperature helps immune cells work harder to fight colds and the flu – so much for lowering fevers with Tylenol. Still yet another study from the journal Pediatrics reports doctors write over 10 million UNNECESSARY prescriptions for antibiotics every year, dangerously raising the risk of antibiotic resistant infections for society as a whole.

Chiropractor's acknowledge that symptoms are your body's attempt to save itself… not the start of a 100 yard dash to CVS. Current best practice is to wait for natural responses like fever and inflammation to do their job, instead of 'false starting' with drugs and interfering with what nature knows best. As long as you're in adjustment (clear Nerve System), your body will innately know how to run its own healing race.

“Clocks and Chiropractic…”

LESS LIGHT! OK, I can hear all the groaning… we're really stretching it this time. But in some way this statement is true. The primary purpose of Chiropractic is to locate and correct subluxations. When you break the word down into it's roots, SUB-LUX-ATION you get this…

"SUB" – means less than, or lower than normal
"LUX" – is latin for LIGHT and
"ATION" – is a state of being, or a condition

The literal definition of subluxation is a state or condition of less LIGHT or power than normal. Subluxations occur when spinal bones mis-align and restrict the normal flow of “light” through the spinal cord and nerves. The effect… your body gets less of the Life energy or “light” it needs from the nerve system to maintain health and vitality.

When Chiropractors locate and correct subluxations, they're removing blockages to the light so it can flow freely through your nerve system, illuminating every cell, tissue and organ in your body. If sub-lux-ations produce darkness in your health, Chiropractic adjustments bring EN-LIGHTEN-MENT.

So don’t let the shorter, darker days get you down. Fall back into a healthy Chiropractic routine and keep your nerve system lit up. Life is brighter when you’re subluxation free.
