Stop Looking Over Your Shoulder - Live Your Life with Confidence

Chiropractic offers something different.  It must be applied differently with its own different language and outlook. 

The whole point of chiropractic is to adjust the spine so it can unwind the stress of your life, giving you a refreshed energy to live the whole human experience  --- regardless of pain, whether you are in pain or not in pain.   

The brain is constantly reorganizing itself.  Chiropractic enhances the process.  

I just happened to catch an interview on the Today Show with a health care professional who described different issues that can put women at risk for heart disease.  There was such a long list, it appeared as if all women are at risk.  Apparently, just being alive puts us at risk.  (Here's the clip.)

Some of the problems included a woman having her first period before age 11, then there's menopause of course.  Also other risks include lupus, migraines, fibromyalgia type disorders, rhematoid arthritis, psoriasis, preeclampsia, polycystic ovarian syndrome, miscarriage, and cancer treatments.  --All risks of future heart disease!!

In my opinion, the underlying message is you don't have a chance! There will always be a potential disease to worry about. 

This is certainly not the world I live in.  Being told to get screening after screening builds up a lot of negativity and fear.  Your life is not yours when your doctors have you over scheduled month after month. Being stuck in fear is your choice, that's for sure. I won't be living my life constantly looking over my shoulder for a disease on the sneak attack.

Interestingly, about a decade ago a report came out saying screenings don't really improve health outcomes, but I'm having trouble finding it on the internet. Where did it go?  (I knew I should have printed it out and kept it in a folder.) 

From the chiropractic point of view, your nervous system responds to stress and promotes your survival.  (Constantly reorganizing itself) These survival responses are often perceived as a disease or dysfunction.  If you are manipulating this response (with drugs, or surgery) in order to numb or diminish the  effects of a working nervous system, you may never address the underlying stress. 

What are the underlying stresses?  Well, that is completely unique to you and how your nervous system learned from your past exposures. 

Chiropractic adjustments reset your brain so you can clear out your stress better.  When you get adjusted, your brain is ready for a new learning experience, so whatever you expose it to next matters. Especially in the first 20 minutes after your adjustment. It's a special refreshed time for your brain. 

If you're used to going to the chiropractor to feel better, (which is fine, nothing wrong with that) be sure you understand that you need to get yourself into a true restful healing state, not kicked back into fight or flight.  

When you are getting on the table to receive a chiropractic adjustment you set the intention in your mind.  How do you want to celebrate and support your nervous system. With fear and tension or with a liberating outlook.  It's part of the process.  To learn more, read here about the Brain First Protocol.   What Will You Become When You Put the Brain First
