I am sure that you have all heard the phrase “my kid, my spouse, my friend, needs an attitude adjustment.” I am here to tell you that a chiropractic adjustment is an attitude adjustment.
One of the biggest myths about chiropractic and health care in general is that if you feel okay or you do not have any pain, then you don’t need to do anything. We can thank allopathic medicine for that one! I am here to tell you that is false. In fact, when we feel good, we need to do more to maintain our wellness. When you feel good, you should be exercising regularly, you should be eating healthy, you should have a regular prayer or meditation practice to keep your mind clean. Why is it that when people “feel good,” they don’t want to do anything to even get better than they are when the “feel good!” Good is not good enough in my book, everyone has the right to FEEL and BE fantastic!
Here is a known fact that only a few people truly understand. Chiropractic is WAY more than just pain relief. Chiropractic is a whole (holistic) healthcare system that works through balancing the nervous system which in turn controls the glandular system (including the pituitary gland which is the master gland in the brain.) When you receive a chiropractic adjustment from a holistic chiropractor, you are receiving an attitude adjustment. Your attitude, mood, memory, energy levels, ability to sleep and most of all, your immune system are directly controlled by hormones. A chiropractic adjustment helps to balance the hormones.
Ladies, I am sure that you have felt this imbalance many times in your moon cycle. That week between ovulation and your menstrual cycle can often fluctuate your mood from one extreme to another, also known as pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS)
I’m sure that you have been a witness to the effects of hormones. I’m sure that you have seen the screaming child crying and throwing a fit because they did not get their own way. Have you seen a teenager with extreme acne and/or that they’re tired all the time? Do you know someone who is angry all the time? Do you know someone who is depressed or who has anxiety? This is what can happen when hormones are out of balance. It can happen to anyone at any time.
Keep your hormones in check, and go to your holistic chiropractor to receive an attitude adjustment. Not only when you are in pain, but when you feel good to keep you good!
Thank you for reading my blogs to have a better understanding of how you can control your health.
