There is something to be said for new beginnings. It is the perfect time for reflection, followed by forward thinking and goal setting. For me, it is a time for consideration of what is working and not working in my life, and what I wish to change. I also understand that if I want to change things in my life, the only way is if I change.
So, I have developed a mantra for the upcoming year. There is no copyright; feel free to steal it, if you wish.
THINGS ARE IN LINE FOR 2009!
This works on so many levels. To know me is to know that I stand for possibility. But with possibility comes responsibility.
Change is very difficult for most of us, but there are many things I know beyond a shadow of a doubt.
I know that I am a child of God. I know that I was placed here on earth to spread the message of healing. And, I know that each one of us was born with an innate intelligence that is programmed for health and well-being.
The question has everything. So my question to you is, “Do you want to be healthy or sick?”
If your answer is healthy, you need to read on to find out if you are truly on the right path.
Health can be defined as the cells in our body functioning in a state of balance or homeostasis.
If you are genetically programmed to move toward health, who is responsible for providing your system with the building blocks for proper genetic expression?
The reality of the situation is that healthy people make healthy choices and sick people make sick choices.
In 2009, I am committed to educating my patients and the people of our community to make healthy choices.
Treating the effects of poor lifestyle choices with drugs and surgery is asinine, ludicrous and a form of genocide. This is what we are doing as a society, however.
The TV is filled with examples of people drinking beer, eating chili dogs and sucking down french fries and then taking antacids to help their system cope. Is this a wise choice?
Each human being on this earth is an ecosystem.
Please give me one example of a situation in which human intervention into an ecosystem actually caused improvement. There isn’t one. It doesn’t exist.
Only two things cause sickness and disease and move us away from health: toxicity and deficiency.
If a plant is wilting, the first thing we ask is, “Does it need water?” So when a human is wilting (sick or diseased), why would we treat it differently than other parts of our ecosystem.
Humans are not dying because they don’t take enough medication or haven’t had enough surgery. Humans are dying because they are deficient and/or toxic. The body doesn’t make stupid choices; we do.
There is no such thing as pathology; only pathological environments. There is no such thing as a pathological medical condition; only adaptive physiology. We are not born sick. Our physiology is an expression of our environment (or in certain cases, our parent’s environment). Whenever there is a stressor to our body, we go through four stages: 1. Alarm 2. Attempt to adapt 3. Fatigue 4. Death
Eating pills is a lifestyle choice just like chiropractic is a lifestyle choice. The question becomes whether our choices are driving us toward homeostasis or away from it.
Chiropractic is not about treating symptoms and/or disease. Chiropractic wellness care is about driving the human being toward homeostasis; therefore chiropractic is an intelligent lifestyle choice.
Are the choices you are making today moving you closer to homeostasis or driving you away?
Chiropractic works 100% of the time because it is always moving the body toward homeostasis.
Isn’t it time to do something that is good for you? How long are willing to put your health off?
Your temple is on fire. Don’t blame the fire department for water damage. My challenge to you is to do something different in 2009. Quit fueling the fire of sickness and disease and start fueling the fire of health and wellness.
Chiropractic care isn’t just for people with pain. Chiropractic care is for everyone.
