~The Greatest Gift this Holiday Season
By: Dr. Caroline Clukey
The gift of….health:) First and foremost- what is health? We live in a world where people base their health on how they look and how they feel. Unfortunately, that can’t be any further from the truth. We’ve all heard of the professional athlete who drops dead of a heart attack. They have the best exercise regime, nutrition plan, they look good, feel good. How could something like that happen to them? Health has nothing to do with how we look and how we feel, but everything to do with how we function. So the next question would be what controls function? It’s your brain and nervous system. All function, all health, all healing is transmitted through your nerve system. Your nervous system is made up of your brain, spinal cord and nerves, which travel out to all organs, tissues and cells in your body.
Your body was created with the amazing potential to heal and regulate itself. Your heart is beating right now, lungs are breathing and all of this is happening without any conscious thought. That’s all happening because of the incredible intelligence within your nerve system. When you get a cut, it heals. It’s not the Neosporin that is healing it, because if you put that on a dead person it’s not going to heal anything. It’s the life potential in that person flowing through their nerve system that does the healing.
The most important thing you can do to keep your function and healing potential at it’s highest level is make sure the connection between your brain and body is as close to 100% as possible. Your spine is literally your lifeline connecting your brain messages to your body and vice versa. If those messages can’t get translated then it’s a different interpretation and that’s what health problems actually are. When bones of your spine get stuck out of alignment it puts pressure on your nerves not allowing 100% of your health messages to be transmitted.
Our goal as principled chiropractors is to detect where that nerve interference is and remove it because your life depends on having your lifeline clear. The gift of health was given to us the moment we were conceived and our job is to express it. Have a healthy, happy, wonderful Holiday season!
