I have had the opportunity to work with patients with almost every different disease or condition out there. ¬†One of the most critical ways I have been able to help these people (beyond improving nervous system function) has been to help them run hard to win. ¬†I don’t believe this is any message from me, but rather one that I am simply good at delivering.
At times I have had individuals who have not chosen to become patients, and I have seen these people choose not to push hard, to fight for the greatest possible outcome. ¬†I am not saying that it only happens under our care, but I realize it only happens when you are being pushed and reminded that there are reasons to push for a long and healthy life. ¬†Reasons beyond ourselves.
So the long setup is so that I can lower this message onto everyone reading, young and healthy, old and sick, and the opposite, the old and healthy and the young and sick. ¬†Everyone. ¬†At any point in time, you are traveling down a path towards health or disease. ¬†It is your choice. ¬†But it is moving one way or the other, you cannot stay put.
Repeat. ¬†You CANNOT stay at the exact place of health for more than an instant. ¬†Aging happens regardless, but aging is not directly related to health or disease. ¬†Aging is related to proximity to death, but that is also altered significantly by your pursuit of health or your apathy towards it.
This is such an important concept. ¬†Subluxation doesn’t sleep. ¬†Your brain is always working to keep you well, and to heal you. ¬†If there is a message running at 50%, then the tissue is weakening. ¬†If you couple that with elevated toxins from your lifestyle, decreased nutrition, high stress and poor rest. ¬†Is it any wonder that our population is sick? ¬†What if you have been pursuing health for 5 years, and suddenly you are diagnosed with a condition?
Shocking? ¬†Unexpected? ¬†Of course. ¬†Unfair? ¬†Probably not, fair isn’t part of it, it is the result of the accumulation of positive and negative choices. ¬†But does the unexpected mean you discard your pursuit, or increase it? ¬†So many who face adversity in their health begin to give up even more.
I was talking with a new patient after a doctor’s report recently, and the discussion went to serum thiol. ¬†Chiropractic has been shown to increase serum thiol levels. ¬†Serum Thiol levels have been linked to health and disease… as they decrease, disease increases, as they increase health increases. ¬†It is pretty cool to understand because these thiols repair DNA. ¬†So as you are aging, your DNA is breaking down, and the higher your thiol levels, the more DNA repair that occurs, thus the greater health and longevity! ¬†Cool!
My point actually lies in understanding that lifestyle choices promote thiol production, so it is directly correlated. ¬†If you make poor lifestyle choices today, you will reduce your thiol levels. ¬†So stop, breathe and read:
It doesn’t matter if you are fifteen or fifty. ¬†If you reduce your thiol levels today, you will age faster than if you maintain them. ¬†Your DNA will become more damaged and aged in this window of time, than it would have had you kept them high. ¬†Can you make it up? ¬†Unknown.
Everyday matters, resonate on that last point. ¬†Don’t live in fear, make wise choices then live in confidence!
