The obvious answer is that your health is invaluable. You must take care of your health because your life depends on it. Putting aside the pandemic, the United States is not a healthy place. It’s no secret that in the US we take our health for granted and have been influenced to rely on drugs/pills/medicine.
According to an article published in Fortune magazine, the cost of healthcare in 2018 in the United States hit an astronomical 3.65 trillion. This spending represents 11,212 per person. That’s every man, woman, and child in the united states. In fact the U.S. spends more money per capita that any other country in the world yet we are ranked at number 29 in the world for health.

Now enter a philosophy that deals with health and the study of what causes people to be healthy: Chiropractic. Sure, there are many different forms of healing and preventative measures one can take to be healthy. We believe that Chiropractic is the most cost effective form of “health care” that seeks to give practical solutions for all. One could ask, “Are we one of those Chiropractic offices that seek the cause of dis-ease?” The answer is “YES!” And we would go on to state that Chiropractic is not simply limited to back pain, neck spasm, “emergency clinic,” and the like.
Notice how the phrase “health care” applies to Chiropractic. Chiropractic is safe, non-addictive, and is proven over and over again to prevent the body from being in a chronic state of disease.
If you confuse medicine for “health care,” you are missing the picture. We are in this predicament of taking care of more and more sick people because our society believes in the idea of taking a pill for any diagnosis, and this is proving not to work.
The best way you can help the sick is not to be one of them. How do you do this? Prevention. Actually taking your health into your own hands and working on it! Everyday, every week, every month. One might say it requires hard work, and being healthy is a full time job. Truer words have never been written. And one of the major benefits of a healthy, preventative lifestyle: the more prosperity that you have in your overall health and well-being, the more you can give back and help others!
