Who would want to wear out their body in the first fifty years of life, only to suffer the consequences for the next fifty? Nobody does. So why does it happen to so many people? This country's "Greatest Generation," as described in Tom Brokaw's books, has sadly become the "Nursing Home Generation." These elderly folks just did not know what we know today: To enjoy a long, happy, healthy life, a person must invest in a healthy lifestyle throughout their lifetime.
Yet despite this newfound knowledge, many people still do not exercise, prepare healthy meals, rest enough, relieve stress or get chiropractic adjustments. By neglecting to care for their bodies, they weaken their hearts, destroy their livers and wear out their spines. As a result, a limited life plagued by pain and disease greets them as they age.
Lifetime care is the only true path to a lifetime of health. The exciting news is that it is never too late to reap the benefits of healthy lifestyle changes. Our amazing human bodies are always striving for optimum health and can heal even if they are sick or injured. Conducting this orchestra of internal wellness is your nerve system.
The nerve system transmits signals between the brain and the rest of the body acting as your mind-body connection. The spinal cord is the central pathway of the nerve system and must be free from interference to communicate properly. When your spine is misaligned due to a vertebral subluxation, nerve signals are compromised. Chiropractic care removes this interference within your brain-body connection, allowing your body the opportunity to be as healthy and active as possible, regardless of your age.
Yet chiropractors are not the only healthcare providers teaching this premise. Deepak Chopra is a well-known medical doctor who explains that "all disease results from the disruption of the flow of intelligence." Over ten years ago, medical researchers found the physical link: "Scientists have discovered the first evidence of an anatomical connection between the nerve system and the immune system," according to The New York Times in May 1993. Even the father of medicine, Hippocrates, said, "Look well to the spine for the cause of disease."
By adjusting spinal subluxations, a chiropractor removes nerve interference so that your body can begin to heal itself. Thus, chiropractic plays a crucial role in the full expression of life that every human being deserves to achieve. When people engage in chiropractic care from the time they are born throughout the course of their lives, they are able to express their full potential during every stage of growth and development.
Do your loved ones deserve any less? Please educate your family and friends on the benefits of chiropractic care and invite them to participate before they wear out their bodies. They will appreciate the energy of their new healthy lifestyle.
Start living healthier today!!!
