Here it is, the time when we start digging in deep to your lives. Whether you like it or not, its time for you to realize that your decisions need to change. Join me, or simply watch me from afar hollering my lungs out, begging you to reconsider your ways. Its funny, my wife thinks that long term my calling will pull me from chiropractic into ministry. But I love using guilt as a means of motivation in health, but I hate the use of guilt in ministry. So I don’t know how I could ever make that change.
Nonetheless, back to your health… CHANGE! Seriously, I would love if I could pull everyone, with everything, from the burning building with chiropractic alone. And as much as I have been impressed with chiropractic over the years. I mean seriously impressed. My belief in what can change from a chiropractic adjustment went from moderate to immense almost over night quite a few years ago. It started with simple constipation in a baby, that child filled three diapers before leaving the office. Then there were seizures that stopped, kidney function restored, allergies resolved… the answer to a myriad of problems solved through chiropractic.
However, even though we have seen miraculous change through chiropractic, I know without a doubt, that it is ONE of the necessary steps in order to become healthy. Yes, become healthy. Are you healthy? Can I tell you one my pet peeves? When somebody tells me they are healthy? Really? How can you be so certain? Because you haven’t been diagnosed with something yet? Don’t tell me that, what, you have never known anybody in your life who was diagnosed all of a sudden with a deadly disease? Really? Where they healthy? Where you shocked? Not I. I am never shocked in those instances anymore. That is why I don’t consider myself healthy. I consider myself to have great potential for good health. Which is totally worth the effort, and that is where decision day comes in.
What is your effort?
What is your effort for health with your diet?
With your exercise?
With your nervous system?
With your toxin load?
With your SLEEP?
Ooooooh that is a very personal question. I have told many of you that I have sacrificed this one area, knowingly, for a period of time… and that I have been doing everything I can to make up for it in other areas. Well, the last month and a half, I have not been able to sacrifice this arena so easily. Finding myself falling asleep in my chair more often, and this past week of vacation. I went to CrossFit Hilton Head only ONE day, and relied on bike rides (not intense, these are family rides) and one day of tennis as my only workouts for the week. Honestly, this is unheard of in my life. The last time I went this long without more exercise was the seven days following the loss of my left eye sight.
But. My wife had urged me to rest more this week, I read a new sleep study article in Time Magazine, and I actually felt like I could sleep more. I was able to hit 8+ hours for four nights total, out of the seven I was away. This was great!
My point – stop sacrificing your health in arenas where you can take charge. Let me help you find a path to less risk. Don’t get caught up saying, “ahhh, its only one donut… once a week, whats the big deal.” And I say this because it isn’t the one donut, its the accumulation of all of the other things with the donut. The things you DON’T EVEN KNOW ABOUT, that are slowly killing you.
Monday night, not at HealthSprout, we just moved the 60 Day Turnaround location to 110 Londonderry Court, Suite 120 right between The Garage and Momentum Church, you will find a location with a large room, and a bunch of chairs, with some AC going and a place for me to make some noise! We are going to kick this off right… 7PM. BE THERE!!
Be well and Be blessed! - Dr. E
