Listed below are 5 areas that we will need to look into for our own wellbeing. Apart from chiropractic care, we must also practise postive mindset, eat healthily, minimize intake of medicines and of course exercise.
The main goal of chiropractic care is proper functioning of the nervous system through structural correction of the spine. Proper alignment of the spine allows for proper communication from the brain to every organ, tissue, and cell in the body via the spinal cord and spinal nerves.
This is due to the fact that the nerves that communicate with every organ, tissue, and cell in your body are protected within the vertebral column. Improper spinal alignment (aka subluxation) is cause by physical, chemical, and emotional stressors and will cause interference from the brain to the body and visa versa.
A study published in 2004 by the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society proved a significant relationship between bad posture and early death from heart and lung related deaths showing a 44% HIGHER RISK OF DEATH in those with the worst posture. Your brain cannot decipher the difference between the three types of stressors (physical, chemical, emotional) which is why they all can present in the same physical forms, one being subluxation.
Chiropractic aims to remove this interference so the body can function at 100%.
A healing mindset based in faith is necessary to get healthy and stay healthy. You must believe that your body has an intelligent ability to heal because healing begins in the mind. You must throw away the limiting beliefs that keep you from reaching your God-given potential and replace them with a positive mindset. All change starts in the mind so you must believe that you can.

The healing process begins with a practical understanding of exactly where your health is now, and where it is headed.
Proper nutrition is imperative to healing and functioning at 100%. You must feed your body foods that it recognizes and eliminate or greatly reduce processed foods, meats injected with hormones/antibiotics, food sprayed with pesticides, GMOs, foods high in sugar, and trans fats.
Eating a proper diet rich in nutritious foods and devoid of junk foods will not only improve your physical and mental well-being but it can also help prevent, fight, and eliminate disease.

Minimize exposure to toxins- In today’s world, we are constantly bombarded with toxins, from the air we breath to the products we consume and put on our skin.
Your body has a natural ability to cleanse itself and although your internal organs are constantly working to detox these chemicals from the body, you need to find areas in your life in which you can begin to eliminate toxins, one step at a time.
When our organs are overworked due to high doses of toxic exposure, your body begins to develop inflammatory and autoimmune diseases but eventually the body’s natural response to eliminate toxins can shut down altogether due to overuse.
So give your body and break and cut out the toxins! We will provide you with the action steps necessary in minimizing toxins to help you in creating a wholesome life for you and your family.
The main goal of exercise is not about looks but rather about increasing oxygen in the body.
Movement is what the body was intended to do and it is necessary for proper functioning.
Exercise is essential in helping your heart and lungs transfer oxygen and nutrients throughout the body.
People have become much too comfortable living a sedentary lifestyle from sitting all day at work to coming home and sitting on the couch for the rest of the night. A study conducted in 2017 produced results stating that a highly sedentary lifestyle can be a risk factor for all-cause mortality.
Basically, too much sitting and not enough exercise can lead to an earlier death. You don’t have to go to the gym for hours to reap the benefits of working out. All you need is 15 minutes and the weight of your body to accomplish a work out that your body will later thank you for.
These short workouts can increase the body’s ability to fight depression and anxiety along with many other ailments.
