There Are No Alternatives to Chiropractic ~ The Beacon for October 20th, 2011

Being healthy is a result of many different aspects.  It is a wholistic approach that makes all the difference in your overall outcomes and wellbeing.  This is why in the Lifehouse we take time to inform people of the importance of an aligned spine and nerve system and introduce other key components of health like nutrition, exercise, proper sleep and a positive mental attitude.  They all work together and they are complement and support one another.  By adding chiropractic care into your lifestyle you will get more out of your yoga practice, your body will heal faster, you will be more connected, and you will make fast changes in your practice.  Similarly a healthy diet is a complement to exercise.  If you are eating well you will perform better, heal faster and enjoy your work-outs more.  Furthermore, being under regular chiropractic care will also mean that you will receive full value of the food that you are putting in to your body.  Imagine that your spine was out of alignment and the nerves going to your stomach were blocked, this interfered with the way your brain spoke to your body so your stomach was no longer able to digest and break down the food you were eating.  You could be consuming the most expensive, organic food grown on remote hills of the Himalayas that were rich with phytonutrients, micronutrients, and processed in a state of the art factory with bare hands.  But the reality is if your stomach is not functioning at 100% this investment in expensive food is going to be nothing more than expensive urine!   Being healthy truly takes a wholistic and integrative approach.

Furthermore doing one well doesn’t replace another.  Each aspect of healthy living is important.  Would it make sense to say, “Well since I am doing yoga 5 days a week I no longer need to eat well?”  Or “Now that I am thinking positive thoughts I don’t have to exercise my body at all.”  I have met many people who have a very active practice in yoga or participate in another exercise, are diligent with their food choices and yet their spines are out of balance.   Many of them are actually quite surprised to find this out; as it is a blind spot for them.  Once they become aware they are excited to build on the momentum and take an action step because they now have a missing piece to the puzzle.  There are no alternatives to chiropractic.  Nothing replaces a chiropractic adjustment.  Certainly there are methods of care that feel good, but nothing is able to clear the nervous system like the chiropractic adjustment.

Are there things that you can do to get more out of your chiropractic care?  Absolutely!  Just last week we hosted a S.R.I. (Somato Respiratory Integration) workshop – that combines breath patterns, declarations with specific hand positions to build resources from within, that work directly alongside care on and off the adjustment table to really amplify your inner healer.  (With a follow-up advanced SRI scheduled for Wed. Nov 2nd)

Remember that healthy living is made up of complementary healthy habits.  You are a whole person and the more you master all the aspects of you the better and healthier you will be.

Wishing you well in all your healthy habit and encouraging you to share the chiropractic message with those you care about.

Speaking of sharing the Chiropractic message - there is an important campaign currently underway for clients, Chiropractors and friends to join together and make our voices heard to restore the integrity of the CCE.  They are attempting to remove/restrict adjustments and specific language AND license Chiropractors to be able to write prescriptions.  Please click CCE Petition to sign the petition and read more of the details.

Thank you,
Dr. Norm and his team
