What is the quality of your life and health?  How do stresses in life affect your health? How is the health of others around you? Could it be better?

     If you want to have a higher quality of health, the new year may be the opportune time to reassess your life and make some very important and life changing decisions.

     Many people believe that the older they get, the less beneficial it becomes, to drop bad habits and start good ones.  This is simply not true.  It is never too late to adopt a healthy lifestyle.  Whether your body is 2 months old or 82 years old, it will always function at its maximum efficiency when you eat well, exercise regularly, and keep your nerve system free from interference caused by vertebral subluxations.

     Ageing causes the structures that hold the spine in proper alignment to undergo change.  The muscles that support and move the vertebrae of the spinal column begin to lose their tone. This can result in a greater tendency for spinal vertebrae to subluxate, or “slip out of line”, losing their normal mobility.   This process creates interference with the communication pathways through the nerve system which is so vital for good health. By adjusting the spine, we restore the body’s ability to govern itself optimally.

If you understand this next part you will understand everything there is to know about health and healing. Your body, when it's working the way it was designed can last until 120-150 years old. But the individual cells don’t last 120 years. If I brush my hand, I will brush off millions of dead cells and new ones grow from behind in order to replace them. Your body constantly replaces itself at the rate of 3 billion cells every 20 seconds! As you read this right now your heart cells are dying but don't worry about it because your body is making new cells to replace it out of the food you ate today. Heart cells live about 90 days and then they die, red blood cells live about 120 days and then die and replaced. After 14 months go by, all your organs have been replaced. It takes about 7 years to replace the entire body, bones and all. Every 7 years you have a brand new body. That means if you have been married for 21 years, you are on your 3rd spouse by now. (That was a joke!)

Your entire body replaces itself with new cells as old cells die off except for one system. Can you guess? Your brain and spinal cord. Those cells have to last you your entire life. The brain and spinal cord are the first cells to form, they are the master controls cells that regulate the entire body and the only cells that will last a life time.

Do you think it might be a good idea to take care of your brain and spinal cord?

That's the Chiropractic message. That’s all we want you to do. We say since every part of your body can be replaced and since your brain and spinal cord, if they are working properly, regulate the function of the entire body then you only really have to worry about one system. If the new cells in your body is getting clear information from your brain and spinal cord and form strong and healthy then disease passes from the picture. That's why patients under chiropractic care for more than 7 years are statistically the healthiest patients in our office. But if the new cells that are born are born just as sick as the old ones, then the disease goes on and on and you will never get well.

This is why Chiropractic is so important and why so many people don’t understand it. Everyone else is trying to help all the sick cells in the body. Chiropractic doesn’t want to cure your sick cells, we  just wants to make sure all the new cells that are being born are born healthy.

     As we move into another year of our lives, it is very important to take a bit of time to sit down and reassess where we are heading with our health and our goals of enjoying our health now and later in life.  We must realise that if we procrastinate with our health now, we may not be able to enjoy the rest of our lives the way we desire.

     The people who have been caught in a bad health scenario for a long time should realise that the vast majority of the health problems could improve greatly with a natural and holistic approach to health.  A lot of these people get caught up on a treadmill of drug taking.  They only mask symptoms temporarily and inevitably allowing their body to slowly be dragged in a downward spiral of health, creating the need for more drugs.

     We are in control of our own destiny.  It is never too late for NEW BEGINNINGS. Tell others, let them read this or even better, give them the gift of health. Who wouldn’t want a $400 gift card? Especially if they have never had a proper spinal check up. Just imagine if you were responsible for improving someone’s life, getting them off drugs and living the life they were designed to live, simply because you gave them the opportunity with a free health gift card.

I want to share with you a verse I read daily. It keeps me motivated and focused on my WHY.

“God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.” Hebrews 6:10 (NIV)

Together, we can change our community by giving hope and healing to thousands.

 

God Bless and Merry Christmas,
