Be the best of health
Stress on your body
When you are healthy your body is working at its maximum function and is able to adapt to stresses. Illness results when your coordination and ‘defence' systems are weakened. Obvious symptoms present as the body it no longer able to compensate.
There are three main categories stresses fall into: • Physical - such as a fall or trauma. Even the repetition of sitting at a desk everyday in a position that is putting stress on the body in an unfavourable way. Exercise can help you to maintain your physical shape and improve your health when done in moderation. Rest is also an important element of well being. • Chemical - eating correctly helps the body to function better and build the right building blocks for a healthy lifestyle. Minimising toxic intake such as avoiding drugs, cigarette smoke and pollution which have a negative impact on your health • Emotional - a positive outlook can only help to improve your health. Social and spiritual well being are also an important part of your health and wellness.
Many people think being well is how you feel. Unfortunately you may feel great, but have undetected cancer. Yet you may feel lousy but have a simple cold. Symptoms such as a runny nose, cough or fever is they way your body is working to overcome a disease process or excessive stress. When you have one of these symptoms it doesn't mean you are sick but that your body is under extra stress trying to get rid of these unwanted substances. Covering up these warning signs is like ignoring the warning oil light on your car. The source of the problem needs to be addressed, balance to the body returned, just like addressing the oil situation in the car.
The presence or absence of physical symptoms is not a reliable indicator of health.
Pain is a kind of a warning sign. Just like the smoke detector warning you of the possibility of fire.
The nervous system controls every tissue and cell in your body. When the nervous system sustains interference by one of the above stresses then it may fail to resist disease (symptoms may or may nor be present).
Chiropractors are specialists in the detection and removal of spinal dysfunction and nervous system interference (subluxation).
Similar to tooth decay, symptoms often only arise after subluxations have been present for many years. You maintain the health of your teeth but what will you do when your spine wears out!!
It is wise to look after your total health to maintain your skin, your teeth, your hair - your spine and your nervous system.
