ARE YOU HEALTHY?


Canadians are constantly bombarded from the time they are born with false images of what it means to be healthy.  To many, the state of optimum health is merely an absence of the signs of symptoms that constitutes a disease.  Advertising giants and pharmaceutical companies have strived and to a great degree succeeded in convincing the large array of the population that “popping a pill” or “drinking some formula” will “cure” the disease.  That is why most of us don’t think twice about taking medication, or popping a pill, or even consider the side effects of any medications.

Do pills work?  Absolutely.  Medicine has come a long way in managing situations that require attention after we have misused and abused our bodies.  Many times environmental and genetic factors place a large role in our state of physical and mental health, but the key to anything in life is balance.  We all require a “ balance of care” to be optimally healthy in life.  If you think you may know what to do during those times when you get “sick”, don’t you think you should consider having a plan to make sure that you don’t!!  

Pain pills and “formulas” may mask the symptoms of a problem; in no way do they cure anything.  Pain is a body’s response to indicate a lack of balance and highlight a problem.  If you numb the pain receptors in the body, then does the underlying problem go away? To illustrate this point, lets ask ourselves a question: Are headaches caused by an Aspirin deficiency?  Of course not!  But this is what the pharmaceutical companies would like us to believe.  Not only are headaches not caused by a lack of aspirin, but also continuous aspirin use can have serious side effects, including ulceration and bleeding of the lining of the stomach not to mention increased rebound headaches.  One needs to understand that headaches are a symptom of a disease process and not the disease itself.  We, as Canadians, are hiding our poor health with drugs.

I am a Chiropractor who is very passionate about what I do.  I am not going to tell anyone not to do something that doesn’t feel right to them.  My message through my articles and my practice will always be to help people attain a balance in life.  If you can take a minute in your everyday life to think about the type of gas you put in your car, don’t you think that you can take the time to ask your doctor and yourself about what exactly is this pill for? Do I really need it?  Side effects? Am I really sick?

My focus through my science, art and the philosophy of my profession is to try to make you think.  Chiropractic is not about your back. Chiropractic is not about your pain.  Chiropractic is about your life!! 

“The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will instead interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.”
