Chiropractic care is thought of by many as a luxury, much like the luxury or eating GMO free and organic food. Oddly enough, in our TV and microwave society, I am inclined to agree with some. For many folks, they really don't need a fit and healthy body in order to use their technology and to gratify their urges for entertainment.
But for those of us who do need our bodies to be healthy so that we can work and play with the energy that we require for years and years, chiropractic care is a necessity. The nervous system heals and commands every part of our body. It retains memories and forms thoughts and ideas. It controls the secretion or enzymes in our saliva and stomach to digest food. It stimulates our adrenaline when we see danger, and our nervous system relaxes us by slowing our hearts when its time to sleep. Yes, a fully functioning nervous system is imperative to long term quality of life. And for those of us who require just that, we need to make sure that our spines protect the nerves in the spinal cord, rather than interfere with their function.
So be safe out there, eat healthy, and make sure that sure your spine is in adjustment. It's the only one that you'll get.
