If you’ve ever tuned into the A&E television program Hoarders, it doesn’t take a genius to quickly realize it’s going to take more than a bottle of Windex to clean up all the garbage, moldy food and rotting animal poop that’s been accumulating in those houses for years and years and years…
But some people accumulate health problems the same way, and unrealistically believe it will take just a visit or two at the Chiropractor’s to fix all their issues. From years of neglect, bad advice and denial, their chronic illnesses pile up until they can no longer recognize the healthy state their body used to be in. By the time they decide to see a Chiropractor, they’ve got a real ‘dis-ease hoarding’ problem and unfortunately one adjustment isn’t enough to clean up the squalor.
The goal of Chiropractic isn’t to temporarily sweep your symptoms under a rug to make things look good on the surface, but to actually roll our sleeves up and get rid of the underlying clutter once and for all. Sure it might take a little more time and a bit more elbow grease to transform your health our natural way, but in the end your human house will be clean, pristine and habitable again.
Life is power, power is life. All healing happens within the nervous system which is the intelligent source of power and life. When the power within the nervous system is interrupted, so is life. These interruptions or “subluxations” are the beginnings to ill health or ‘dis-ease’. The intensity of healing power the body receives from a single adjustment allows the body to release its own healing energy for its own path to optimum life. It is never too late to be on the road to have the power completely turned on and life to flow effortlessly within.

Dr. Eric – This is such a great principle to remember, “Time in the lifestyle, is what makes change”. It is not the “one big adjustment”, or for those who pursue naturopathic treatment “we got the right herb”. It is simply time in the pursuit. You keep working towards the goal of health, not symptom relief, and you will be given health. A full measure will be returned back on you for your efforts.
I have been following this path for nearly 15 years, and the changes were amazing to me 15 years ago when I started getting adjusted, but the changes were amazing 6 years ago when I started CrossFit, and the changes were amazing 2 years ago when I tried the healing diet for the first time, and actually the changes were amazing to me when I detoxed for the first time 9 years ago… but in the end, the thing that has changed me, is all of it. The simple pursuit of all of it!
Stay tuned in for health! And be Blessed along the way!!
