Health Care Vs Health Insurance

By | Benefits of Chiropractic, kids chiropractic, pregnancy | No Comments

Health care vs health insurance. What’s the difference between the two? Just about everything. Health care is something that you perform on a day to day basis. It’s easy to be healthy and just on the opposite side it’s easy to be unhealthy. The choices you make are not from genetics. Health care comes with the choices that you make to better yourself and take time for self-love. Being healthy is not something you should take lightly, its hard-work and we typically attempt to gain our health when something bad has happened. In our society nowadays the phrase goes as such, “Young men in life avoids his health to acquire wealth, while later in life will spend his wealth to acquire his health.”

Health care become the actions that you perform on a routine basis. Take for instance, Chiropractic check-ups. You live your life through your central nerve system (CNS). Every human experience you have is controlled, coordinated, and processed through your CNS. Chiropractic care seeks to make sure your body is free of any interference to the CNS and you are functioning at an ideal state by adjusting the spinal column which protects the CNS. The beginning of the disease process begins with postural distortions – Hans Selye, M.D.

Health care is hard-work yet in the long-run is always worth it. Consuming the right foods, taking time for daily exercise, and making sure your thoughts are healthy… is hard-work. These are just a few to name some, yet it really gets down to the choices that you must make to make sure “Health Care” becomes part your daily routine.

Health insurance is really a misnomer. Typically, people use their health insurance when they have an accident, injury, or trauma. Which all these incidents sound really bad and just maybe your insurance will cover your costs (really should be called trauma insurance). Health insurance is not looking after your overall health and well-being. Preventative steps are not taken into account to make sure that your health insurance actually keeps you healthy. No one buys health insurance and then immediately becomes healthy. You have to perform active health care to stay healthy.

Brush Your Spine

Brush your spine ever? Hopefully not. Just a simple analogy to further educate the importance of active spinal care. Think of when a tooth begins to hurt and produces symptoms of a cavity. Just because the pain started today does not mean that the problem just ‘showed up.’ If you neglect your teeth they will not only show it from an appearance stand point, yet also from a dysfunctional problem when tooth problems begin. If you do not take care of your teeth they have a tendency to fall out…bummer. If you do not take care of you central nerve system health problems begin to arise.

Your spine protects the most important structure in the entire body: the central nerve system. Regular chiropractic check-ups prevent the spine from breaking down and creating subluxations (misalignment within the spinal column placing undo stress upon the central nerve system). Believe it or not the spine and central nerve system are vastly more important than your teeth. Just because you cannot physically see your spine like your teeth, does not mean that it’s less important. On the contrary. There is a reason the central nerve system is protected by ‘spinal bones’. To protect!

The ‘breaking down’of the spine exists through subluxations. When you do not maintain spinal hygiene the body is not able to properly adapt which increases your susceptibility of subluxations, spinal decay, and health problems which ensue with improper communication between the brain and body. Subluxations are the physical representation of symptoms. It’s not that a symptom is a subluxation: sublxuations produce symptoms due to the distortion of a spinal bone, placing undo stress upon a single nerve fiber thus creating a state of dis-ease within the nerve system. As a result, tissue cells that the nerve controls will not become adequately supplied and functioning at 100%. Subsequently, health problems manifest.

You don’t have to ‘brush your spine’ to be healthy. You just need to take care of the things that matter most. A healthy inside results in a healthy body on the outside. 

What Age Does One ‘Need’ Chiropractic

By | Benefits of Chiropractic, chiropractic adjustment, Chiropractic Myths, kids chiropractic | One Comment

The age long debate of Chiropractic care: when does one begin care? First, lets understand what Chiropractic is and what it is not. Chiropractic is a philosophy, science and art of things natural; a system of adjusting the segments of the spinal column by hand only, for the correction of dis-ease, as addressed by B.J. Palmer, D.C. This simply means that Chiropractic deals with all things that are natural within the body.

When we use the word ‘dis-ease’ we are referring to an interference with the conductive tissues (nerves) of the body. What Chiropractors are trained to locate and adjust, if necessary, are vertebral subluxations. Misalignment’s of the spinal column that place undo stress upon a single nerve fiber are therefore creating a state of dysfunction within the body. Wouldn’t it be wise to start getting your child checked right away for subluxations?

We begin to take our children to the dentist when teeth begin to develop and form, because we want to make sure they are healthy and developing correctly. What about the central nerve system? The first system ever developed in the human body that makes all the tissue cells of the body…even the teeth! The dentist analogy while easy to use is even overlooked when using good nutrition. You don’t wait to feed your children healthy substantial vegetables and fruits until they are middle-aged: you do it right away. So, why in the health care industry of Chiropractic which is all things natural, would you wait to get their spines checked?

We have been brainwashed that Chiropractic is for middle-aged males who lift a heavy object and ‘throw their back out’. This is the farthest statement from the truth. Why would you wait to begin regular spinal check-ups to ensure optimal function of the central nerve system for developing children. Healthy central nerve system = healthy developing child.

We are an office with a particular focus on pediatrics. We understand that birth, even how amazing as it is, is a stressful situation for not only the mother, but the newborn as well. We cannot stress the importance of starting life off with a clear and functioning nerve system to reach certain milestones in childhood development without limitations.
