Your brain is the central control system of your body. Not only does it process everything, but it also stores memories and controls emotions. Sensations such as stress, pain, calmness, and joy all stem from how your brain is functioning. A healthy brain not only means a healthy body, but also a clear and uncluttered mind.
Digestion and assimilation of nutrients, vitamins and minerals is essential to our overall health. The “gut” has been deemed the “second brain,” because of its numerous vital functions within our bodies. Improper function of our gut can lead to a series of issues such as irritable bowel syndrome or auto-immune diseases. Proper foods and supplements not only provide the energy we need to function, but can keep our bodies from developing serious disease processes.
How well does your body fight? It doesn’t matter if its the flu, harmful chemicals or even cancer. Your body was designed to heal. There is an innate function to regulate and maintain homeostasis at all times. Your bodies ability to stay sick or healthy depends on it. Chiropractic is all about helping your body fight and heal at its utmost potential.
Basing your health only on how you “look” may be dangerous! The development of diseases such as heart disease or stroke can occur without warning. True fitness comes from not only regular exercise but by incorporating some kind of cardiovascular conditioning. By safely increasing your heart-rate and then resting at timed intervals you not only improve lean muscle, but “look” good on in the inside too!
