NOW THAT THE DUST HAS SETTLED………from the silliness of New Year’s Resolutions let’s start creating a Longevity Wellness Lifestyle one good choice at a time! Why do I call it silliness? According to U.S. News & World Report, 80 percent of New Year’s resolutions fail by February. Change takes time and is best done incrementally, with a purpose.
Over the course of the next several months I’m going to be discussing the three things necessary for optimum health. They are exercise, proper nutrition and having your nervous system functioning properly. I’m going to help you make true changes in your health, one good choice at a time.
Today’s discussion relates to the importance of keeping your nervous system functioning at it’s optimum to create optimum health. All the systems of the body must be working at 100% and in coordination with each other. Even without symptoms, your body can have diabetes, heart disease, cancer, the beginnings of arthritis, etc., as a result of the body’s systems not functioning properly. Health is NOT the absence of symptoms, but rather is a body that has all its systems functioning at 100%.
The brain and nervous system have the responsibility of controlling the trillions of functions that occur throughout the organs and tissues in your body each day. The body can heal and defend itself against all types of problems if it is functioning properly.
Interference with the brain and nervous system’s control of the body’s systems is cause by subluxations of the spinal vertebrae. When the vertebrae become subluxated (misaligned) they irritate and decrease function of the spinal nerve root which blocks communication from the brain to the body. Less than 100% communication from the brain to the body results in less than 100% function of the body and less than 100% of your health. Chiropractic adjustments realign the spine, resulting in increased communication and control of the brain and nervous system over the body systems.
So, your first good choice in 2019’s mission to create a Longevity Wellness Lifestyle is to make sure you are on a chiropractic wellness treatment schedule to ensure that you’re keeping your nervous system functioning at its optimum resulting in less pain, increased, energy, feelings of youth, vitality, longevity and prevention of disease.
