If You Are Not Sick Does That Mean You Are Healthy?

If You Are Not Sick, Does That Mean You Are Healthy?

A question that is straight to the point and goes after our foundation of health.  We automatically assume that if somebody is not sick, then they must be healthy.  Which is actually the farthest thing from the truth.  The World Health Organization, or WHO, in their definition of health state this: “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”  Notice the part that says “And not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”.  This is basically saying “And not merely the absence of SICKNESS.”

The “Normal” Symptoms Of Being Healthy

Have you ever read an obituary of a person who was never sick a day in their life and then just literally dropped dead?  Or the person that claims that they never get sick?  Very hard to believe.  Why?  Our society states that you should just wait until you get sick and then go to the doctor and get some drugs.   A symptom does not just appear out of the blue.  Sorry people, it’s the truth.  Symptoms will be the first sign of your brain telling you that something is wrong.  When our body first recognizes these signs, we often cover them up with some sort of drug.  We have been trained that these signs become symptoms and then become “normal”.  When in reality no symptom is normal.

Getting Checked On The Regular

Regular check-ups from your chiropractor ensure optimal health.  Chiropractic is the only profession that allows your body to heal and adapt on a regular basis WITHOUT giving you drugs, performing surgery, or removing things from your body.  How does it work?  Chiropractic focuses on the central nerve system (the brain and spine) to make sure there is no interference with what the brain NEEDS to know.  The only way you heal or adapt is making sure the brain knows what is happening in the body.  When dysfunction in the spine occurs, it limits the brain’s knowledge of what is “supposed” to happen.  Chiropractic does not stop signs and symptoms from appearing, it makes sure that if they do arise, your body actually heals itself.  This is the way you are designed.
