Living The Chiropractic Lifestyle For Optimal Health

When striving to reach your true health potential, it is vitally important that you look towards role models that also exude and live a healthy lifestyle. One of those personalities I always look up to is Jake LaLanne. Jack also known as the "Godfather of Fitness" and the man who started the American Fitness Revolution was the first to open a modern health studio in 1936 and is most well known as the inventor of the POWER AND FUSION JUICERS.

From an early age, Jack became a complete junk food junkie and sugarholic. As he put it, "It made me weak and it made me mean. I had boils, pimples, and was near sighted. Little girls used to beat me up." Back in Oakland California at age 15 he was so sick he had to drop out of school for 6 months. Until he made a decision to turn away junk food and began his journey towards optimal health.

Jack's new found motivation prompted him to buy Gray's Anatomy where he learned the workings of the muscles, bones, and tendons of the body. With Gray's Anatomy as a background Jack learned more about the workings of the body by graduating from Chiropractic College. Yes, He was a CHIROPRACTOR but because there was so much opposition from the medical community Jack did not enter practice. He instead used Chiropractic health principles to help change millions of lives through exercise and nutrition. Consequently, he used his knowledge to devise innovative exercises and equipment and you'll see these concepts in many of the modern day equipment. He developed the prototypes of exercise equipment presently available in contemporary health spas. His inventions, to name a few include the weight selector pulley, calf, leg extension and squat machines which he never patented. His squat machine concept is now the Smith Machine patented by his good friend Rudy Smith.

He revealed, "The doctors were against me and that working out with weights would give people heart attacks, and lose their sex drive. Women would look like men and coaches banned their athletes from using weights predicting that they would get muscle-bound. Today all world class athletes work out with weights".

Jack juiced for over seven decades beginning with a press that would press the juice from the fruit or vegetables. He believed juicing to be one of the factors that made up the fountain of youth. To quote him, "Your blood stream is your river of life and when you nourish the trillions of cells in your body with live and vital nutrients, you feel alive and vital." He always believed that giving your body the right fuel was like giving your automobile the right gas.

Jack LaLanne passed away at the age of 96. He is a prime example of someone who used Chiropractic principles to help educate and bring greater health to millions. Exercise, Nutrition and Spinal Hygiene through visits to the Chiropractor are the basic fundamental needs your body requires in order to express full health potential. Chiropractors have always been at the forefront of health and still today modern science is only starting to understand and prove Chiropractic as the best kept secret for optimal health. By adjusting the spine, Chiropractors help maintain a healthy and balanced nervous system. When you combine nutrition and excise, your body is able to heal and repair more effectively. This is the fundamental truth Jack and many others who are at the leading edge of health have come to understand and utilize to help millions of people lead healthier lives.

The Power is ON with Chiropractic!

I simply lucked out when I found Dr. Posa The staff at The Healthy Family Chiropractic are amazing and very well informed. I was in so much pain when I first visited Dr. Posa, and after 2 visits my pain decreased by 50%! After a few more visits I felt 20 years younger! Thank You! Thank You!

I know there is so much controversy between chiropractic and medical care, but if it were not for chiropractic I would still be in pain. A car accident left me with constant back pain. I tried everything from painkillers to preparing to have surgery. I heard stories from my friends who had surgery and to this day wish they never had it. I decided to go to Dr. Posa before the surgery and I am so thankful that I did. My back pain is 95% gone and my life has changed because of Dr. Posa. Thank you so much!

From the time I walked in the door I was impressed! I was seen promptly, and Dr. Posa was a true professional. When I was younger I was in a car accident and have been suffering with neck and back pain. Almost to the point that I couldn't get out of bed! After 6 treatments I started to see relief, and today it's like the accident never happened. I've been seeing Dr. Posa for about 2 years now and I am so excited about the future!
