How many times have you heard the term “miracle drug” or “miracle cure” . Everyone is looking for the miracle that can solve their problems. In the world of health and wellness the miracle pill is a four letter word called “time”. Unfortunately most of these “miracle cures” don’t work, resulting in time, money, and the chance for a better life wasted. Did you or someone you use braces before? Did your teeth go back into place over night? Of course not, but the time spent resulted in a great smile. This idea of time equals result not what everyone wants to hear, but it is that “miracle drug” we all cry for.
Obesity, arthritis, cancer, and a cavity are all examples of diseases that developed over time. They all begin with one moment, but it is the cascade that follows becomes the disease you know. The same can be said for being healthy. Going to the gym once does not cure obesity. One cortisone shot does not cure arthritis. One round of chemotherapy does not cure cancer.
Brushing your teeth only once does not cure or prevent cavities. Being healthy is a lifestyle, not a purchase. It is not a one-time thing that takes a moment of commitment on your end, but also comes with a money back guarantee. When there is a disease over pain is the last time to show up and the first thing to go away. When someone has a heart attack, was it random or was it the persons poor lifestyle that lead to the heart attack. Next, say this person survives the heart attack without any permanent damage. Is this person any healthier than before the heart attack with leaving the hospital? Of course not.
This is a key focus of Chiropractic care and the chiropractic lifestyle. The chiropractic adjustment treats disease by restoring your body’s normal, healthy , natural function . It is not meant to treat pain. Only what is causing it. When your body is functional at its best it is more powerful than any drug or any doctor. This is how chiropractic work to cure and to prevent disease. Even in the absence of pain
Chiropractic care is a key part of that miracle drug called time. Ask your family Chiropractor about wellness care and how it can keep you and your loved ones at their best.
