I am not biased. Just a lifetime chiropractor telling you to get adjusted for a lifetime. Not me. Its kind of like a surgeon telling you to get surgery, right? Well, actually, nope, not at all. One of the biggest differences, is that once a surgery is over, the surgeon’s commitment to your life and health is on a fast decline. Even if they are emotionally tied to you, or (hopefully) morally tied to you, the tie will quickly fade, as the surgeon’s life is built upon more surgery. Not management post surgery.
The reason I gave you that example, isn’t to point out surgery in particular, though I do believe you need to think twice about cutting and altering this body that has been divinely appropriated to you. Rather, the example is to shed light on the general position of the medical profession. Medicine is about treatment, and treatment is about diagnosing illness or disease, which in turn is about the point in time when there is a lack of health. This is directly opposite to what chiropractic is at the essence.
Sure, most chiropractors have ruined that because they are scared. They want to fit in to a medical world, so they tout their pain relief and back pain neck pain results. Disease mongering, not focusing on well being. For those of you focused on one year results… you’ll sadly never realize what there is to gain on the lifetime side of chiropractic care. It is an abundance of wellness, and health improvement. And the really cool difference between that mindset and the medical one described above… my accountability will never cease. I am here, and will be, for a long time.
So we choose to discuss nervous system function. Wellness and increased health. We believe in maintaining the human frame and being caught up in the management of health, and function, and diet and exercise. We look at the combination of these things as being critical to ones overall health, and we boldly say – LIFETIME, because we have found it to be true. Lifetime is necessary if you want to get the benefit. Now, the fortunate thing, is that you get to make decisions along the way as to how you will use this. But if you pull back aggressively from culture, and follow our lead, you won’t regret it.
But what happens if you don’t stick with us? Well, 9 times out of 10, no matter how strong you are in your belief that you don’t want the medical model governing your family, you will end up in the medical world, and that model governing your family. Over the years I have had many young families strong in the belief of their potential for health, who have emailed me asking for help with a child after a diagnosis. In most cases, I find out they have been seeking unnecessary medical interventions. Why? Because the MD knows nothing to help you outside of a med 90% of the time. So your strong convictions become weak arguments, that fade into fear of what the doc tells you, which leads to unnecessary treatment. Is all treatment unnecessary? Of course not. But in the world of managed care, fading to Obamacare, there is no time to determine who needs to do what. So lets medicate and figure out the next step once we see the response. That is the typical party line.
Your brain is the most incredible creation on the planet. Perfect in its ability to maintain your body. Magnificent in every way, more so than a beautiful mountain range, or a sunset over the ocean. It presents its magnificence to your spinal cord, which in turn will pass that on to your body. Take the spinal cord down a notch, and your body follows. Slowly, imperceptible, but definitely down. Ignore it, hope that you are all right, and you will find yourself lacking in healing, eventually in function, then ultimately life.
I am not a theorist. I am a fact based practitioner who has seen it all (or close to it), over the last decade of seeing somewhere around 10,000 unique people through our offices. That teaches you a lot. Trust that God has given you a path towards health, get confident in your body, but make the changes needed to have cause for confidence. I recall a woman saying to me, I want my child to be like yours, and have no vaccines. What do I need to do?
“Well, do what we do. Adjust, eat right, exercise, sleep well, and avoid toxins.” She said “I can do all but the adjustment, does that matter?” – Of course, to me, I think it is the most important piece… “if you cannot get adjusted, then you might want to get vaccinated.” I wasn’t kidding. I take it that serious.
Be well and Be blessed and avoid the flu shot if you care about your long term health! – Dr. E
