YOUR SOLUTION TO THE FAILING AMERICAN HEALTH CARE
“The doctor of the future will give no medication, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.”
― Thomas A. Edison, 1903
Wake up America we have a big problem! The facts are, according to the World Health Organization, the United States of America consistently ranks at the bottom of all measured categories of health care except for acute care. We spend about double the amount on prescribed medication then the average country, around $1100 per person per year! We now have issues like MERSA and ever increasing health problems due to side effects. We out spend all of the other countries but our outcomes fall way behind. Why is this happening? What do we have wrong? What don’t we know?
Somewhere along the line your health became a business. It became about intervention instead of cultivating a culture of prevention and maintenance of a healthy life. For too long our ideas and thoughts about what it means to be healthy has centered on “how do you feel”? We need to get rid of the thought that pain or discomfort is the only measure of how healthy we are. The World Health Organization defines health as a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease, illness or pain. The medical community and drug companies have advertised us into believing medications focused on treatment of disease and symptoms is our only option. Look at our opioid addiction in this country and who contributed to it.
SOLUTION 101: People must wake up to long term preventive care of oneself and how that pays huge dividends in life. It makes complete sense to keep your nervous system (brain, spinal cord, spinal nerves) free from pressure and functioning well always to prevent disease, illness and pain. Wouldn’t you want that throughout your entire life?
Chiropractic, since 1895, has preached that proper alignment of the body facilitates the optimal connection between the brain and the body. The brain body connection is the driving force behind our health. It MUST be properly maintained and any interference must be removed. Chiropractors are trained to detect and correct interference in that connection due to misalignment of the “human frame”, specifically the spine and cranium. Your body is born with the innate mechanisms of immunity and an ability to grow, heal and thrive as long as the nervous system is not interfered with. The fact is there is no pill, potion or lotion that can give your body the ability to heal.
We need to heed the words of Thomas Edison and invest our time and resources in the care of the human frame and the precious nervous system encased in it. Chiropractic care has been enhancing our body’s innate abilities for over 120 years. Know the truth, spread the truth.
It’s never too late to start a good thing. You must start moving forward from here. The best day to make a change is today.
