Wellness is our Mission
Our bodies were designed to consume natural, fresh foods such as vegetables and free range animals. We need to fuel our bodies with the appropriate nutrients in order to flourish. Chiropractic care requires the bodies healing powers from within which begin by the fuel we provide to it. It’s time to start respecting our bodies and genetic blueprints and take responsibility for our choices in food consumption.
In this day and age we hear of numerous diseases, such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease to name a few, that can be helped by improving our physical health. Our body is meant to be active. It breaks down and weakens if we don’t use it. For good physical health we need to develop cardiovascular fitness, muscular strength, muscular endurance, power, proprioception (balance) and flexibility. To limit the physical stresses on our body we also need to achieve an ideal body weight. Sadly, many are limited by their physical injuries and need to understand the causes of their injuries and options for care.
For our nervous systems to work properly, sleep is needed. Sleep deprivation makes a person drowsy and unable to concentrate the next day. It also leads to impairment of mental and physical performance and reduced ability to carry out mathematical calculations. If sleep deprivation continues, hallucinations and mood swings may develop. Release of growth hormone in children and young adults takes place during deep sleep. Most cells of the body show increased production and reduced breakdown of proteins during deep sleep. Sleep helps humans maintain optimal emotional and social functioning while we are awake by giving rest during sleep to the parts of the brain that control emotions and social interactions.
It is silly to discount the healing powers of a positive attitude. Recent science has shown us that your thoughts directly impact the hormones and enzymes in which it releases. Having a calm, positive disposition is one of the most powerful things we can provide our bodies with.
