Traditional “health care” as we call it is really a sickness business. Its sole purpose is only to function re-actively, after people have become sick. No emphasis is set forth on the approach of prevention and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. According to Paul Zane Pilzer, a leading economist and author, approximately one-seventh of the United States economy, or about $1.8 trillion, is devoted to this sickness business. 

The current model we utilize is broken down into three different categories. Primary care being the most basic, which involves your family doctor, pediatrician or internist. Secondary care involves the specialist typically at the local hospital such as the cardiologist. Tertiary care is the kidney transplant surgeon or sub-specialist usually at an academic medical center. While these categories serve a purpose, what about preventing even entering into this model?

What about informing the consumer that health comes from the inside. How about participating in a process of health that seeks to heal dis-ease within the body instead of seeking a diagnosis in order to receive treatment. People are recognizing the benefit of seeing a chiropractor who will help them achieve and maintain optimal health proactively. Chiropractic care does not fit into the current model that we utilize. Chiropractic care focuses specifically on the central nervous system, the master control system that regulates and controls every experience that your body encounters. 

Understand that the spinal column being the only segmented structure of bone through which nerves pass through and send messages back and forth from the brain to body. When a subluxation (misalignment of the spine) places undo stress on a specific spinal nerve creating chronic interference with the transmission of nerves it will begin the dis-ease process. To enable the body to begin the healing process starts with looking within the body. Medication does not solve this process. A healthy inside is not found in a pill, a hospital, or under the surgeon’s knife. In fact these things are only indications of an unhealthy lifestyle. You have the power to make healthy choices.
