Are You Tired of Being Sick?

Sometimes in life, the right things get demonized and the wrong things get the credit. The concept of being sick is a good example. Many people don’t understand what sickness really means because they have a sick perception of being sick! When they have cold or flu related symptoms, they often assume it is bad and then try to treat the sickness out of them, but instead end up just running their health down. After all, who likes feeling tired, achy and sniffly? And don’t healthy people feel good? But if we put it into perspective, dead people don’t get any symptoms either! So what gives? Well, all these symptoms are coming from an innate intelligence working through our bodies to protect and heal us. Which one of these two functions do you think is bad for us? The answer is neither! A different question might be, why does the amazing intelligence within us need to produce any of these sickness symptoms in the first place?

 The cold and the flu go together like immune and system. Without this system, your body could never fight off the things it has to every moment you are alive, and not just when you only feel symptoms. In addition, the immune system is controlled by the most important system in your body, the nervous system. When there is interference to this supreme system, nothing else in your body can possibly work as well, including your immune system.
Have you ever noticed that some people are never sick, some people are always sick and yet other people are like dominoes, where it seems like germs just knock down the next person in line? If one person is always sick and another person is never sick, does that mean that germs like some people and don’t like others? In truth, germs are around us all the time. We actually have a healthy relationship with them as long as we are functioning properly. Everyone gets the flu. The real question is what are you going to do with the flu?

This also means that why we get sick depends on how strong our immune system is before we even get sick, and therefore how well our nervous system is working, too. So the difference between a cough and a coffin isn’t the strength of the microbe we are exposed to, but rather how strong our body is to begin with. After all, there is no such thing as a flu season, but there is such a thing as a compromised season. These are really just the various times throughout the year that we are more vulnerable to the exact same microbes we would demonize if we don’t understand how our relationship with the environment really works.
Now, here is where chiropractic comes in: The cause of your health isn’t outside of you, depending on germs or anything else, it is inside you! You and everyone you know gets regular interference to their nervous system, called a spinal subluxation. It prevents the intelligent messages trying to communicate between your brain and your body through your spine. This means you must have your spine checked just as regularly as these subluxations happen, and only Chiropractors are specially trained to detect and remove spinal subluxations.
If you haven’t noticed it yet, this is also a message of empowerment. Once you realize that you can now take control of your health, your entire life changes for the better as well. Instead of being fearful that you don’t get sick or feel lucky when you don’t, or even dreading the symptoms associated with being sick, you can turn your compromise into a promise. And the promise is that as long as your nervous system is working properly, you can be assured that everything else in your body is working as it is designed too, including your immune system. This can only happen with chiropractic care. Call today to begin living a life without fear.

I Suffer From…

At Creation Chiropractic, we could make an impressive list of the many conditions that people suffer from which have improved with chiropractic care. But let’s start with some perspective of how that is even possible, especially since we don’t treat any of the conditions we have helped, many of which we weren’t even aware of!

There are three important logical facts that create the foundation for everything we do and why we do it at Creation Chiropractic:

First, the nervous system is the supreme system of the body because it controls and coordinates every single aspect of all its functions.

Second, spinal subluxations interfere with the nervous system because the spine is the connection between the brain and the rest of the body.

Third, chiropractic adjustments remove spinal subluxations, allowing the body to restore itself back to full expression and normal function.

Therefore, everything in your body is affected negatively by spinal subluxations and everything in your body is affected positively by chiropractic adjustments. You are always better off without spinal subluxations, and only a chiropractor is specifically trained to find and remove them, so you can function exactly the way you were designed.

Regardless of any specific condition you may have, the question you really need to ask yourself is, “Do I want interference to my body’s ability to manage any of my conditions?”

Many conditions go away completely with chiropractic, while some lesson and still others just have less complications without interference to the system that controls every part of every condition. There is never a downside to removing interference to your LIFE. The reality is, everyone gets spinal subluxations as part of being alive. No one can escape this dynamic. Everything has to be maintained; Your car, your computer, your body, and in particular, your spine.  When we don’t maintain our spine, interference is inevitable and so is the dysfunction that follows it. The only difference from person to person is how they subluxate and how often.

What is truly sad is that many people don’t even know to get checked for subluxations. Even worse, many people feel fine so they just assume they are fine. But how would they know unless they get checked? Can you feel your cholesterol level? How does your blood pressure feel? The only way to know about your subluxations is to get checked regularly by a chiropractor. 

Lots of people assume their problem is where their pain is, or that their pain is the problem itself. All pain is a secondary condition to a primary one. Pain is a pain, but the cause of the pain is the key to getting right. And when your pain or conditions goes away with chiropractic, there are no illusions. You feel better because you are actually better.

Symptoms often motivate but they don’t dictate what needs to be done. Other people don’t see a chiropractor with their condition because their back feels good. And yet the organs producing those conditions hang off their spine like puppeteer strings! Remember, all roads lead through the spine and your chiropractor can tell you exactly how it is working.

We like to say that you “run the risk of pain relief”, because when you begin working the way you are supposed to again, things also begin to go away that are not really you. You are not your pain, and you are not your condition. They are just things your body has had to do to survive while you were in a subluxated state. You’re better than that.

Chiropractic isn’t about pain relief, it’s about REIGN RELIEF! The power that made you and reigns over your life is just waiting for you to tap into it again, to bring your life back to its fullest! Your reigning power is on the way, just as soon as you are ready to start receiving it with your first chiropractic adjustment. That’s how big this all is. At Creation Chiropractic, you no longer need to guess because you have real hope.
