Chiropractic is not just about healing physical aches and pains, it is about creating wellness in a person’s whole body and mind. Chiropractic works with a very simple and very effective set of values that enable you to achieve true health. A balance of a healthy central nervous system complemented by good diet, exercise, rest and reduced stress. As well as avoiding proven risk factors to your health such as smoking, excessive drinking and excessive intake of sugar and caffeine.
Central Nervous System
Chiropractic is based on the idea that in order for the body to function well, there must be clear paths for information to travel between the central nervous system and the rest of the body. As the spine is the main protector of the central nervous system, it makes sense to keep it well aligned, in order to enable this flow. Chiropractic adjustments achieve this alignment, giving your body the opportunity to work as it should, as a very effective self healer.
In order for your body to have the power to heal, it must be powered by the right fuel. Good diet is of utmost importance in obtaining optimum health, as it is the nutrients we gain from fruit, vegetables and grains that power our body. Feeding it with low nutrition food leaves the body overworked with nothing to power it.
As well as the right fuel, our bodies also need plenty of time to rest. This can often seem impossible to achieve when coping with a busy lifestyle, but introducing good amounts of rest into your daily life will actually help your body and mind function far more efficiently, giving you more time to relax.
In today’s lifestyle a lot of our time is spent sitting down looking at computer screens. This is a very unnatural state for our bodies to be in which is why exercise is integral to keeping our bodies functioning as they should.
