What is Good Health?

Good Health
Good health is when your body works as it was designed.

Chiropractors work with the spine, not necessarily because it’s the source of neck and back pain, but because it houses and protects the spinal cord and nervous system. Every vital life sustaining process depends on the integrity of this communication network between the brain and the body.

Feeling Great

Most people think that how they feel is an indicator of how healthy they are. It’s not true.

Let’s say you unknowingly eat some spoiled food. Later you get stomach cramps and vomit. You certainly don’t feel well, but thankfully your body is functioning correctly. Imagine the tragic consequences of taking a drug to calm your stomach, retaining the toxic food!

Vomiting, sneezing, coughing and even fevers may actually be signs that your body is working correctly: the definition of true health!

Functioning Great

Your brain, spinal cord and all of your nerves control and regulate your body. Every cell, tissue, organ and system (even your immune system!) take orders from your nervous system.

Thus, true health is how well your nervous system is orchestrating the workings of your body. That’s why vertebral subluxations are so serious! Compromised brain-to-body or body-to-brain communications can be the underlying cause of a variety of health problems.

Many people with a spinal problem discover that other health problems resolve with chiropractic care. Patients often report that as their care progresses, they notice other positive changes in their health.
