The Preemptive Strike to Achieve Optimal Health
By Dr. Molly Casey
To be optimally healthy, one must know what health means to them personally -- with clarity. To be efficient and reap the most benefits of optimal health, you also need to understand the best way to achieve it. Lastly, you must apply what you know. Optimal health is a journey. There are some foundational concepts for optimal health through the application of chiropractic.
Life as We See It
Optimal health is about the full expression of life. It’s about growth, abundance, and thriving over surviving. In chiropractic, we acknowledge that there’s a baseline life intelligence, if you will, that exists in every individual. And to support that intelligence means to support life.
It’s simpler than it sounds. Human beings exist after an egg and sperm meet, conception occurs and development ensues. We chiropractors simply acknowledge that this is a pretty amazing process and at some level there is a larger intelligence playing out -- otherwise, how does this even occur? Or how does your hand heal when you cut it or a broken bone mend after time passes? It’s because of that life energy within you. We call it innate intelligence, it’s within us -- every one of us. And we want it to be able to be expressed to its full potential.
Strengthening the Host
Chiropractors focus on building up the body as a means to healthcare instead of simply addressing disease. Symptoms appear after a problem exists. This is why many people get adjusted regularly, regardless of whether they have pain or not. They don’t wait for symptoms to arise before they decide to take action; they look to negate the health complications in the first place.
Optimal Nervous System Functioning
The foundational way that promotion of health is achieved is by making sure the body is functioning at its highest possible level through optimal nervous system functioning. This requires a healthy and well-maintained spine. Spinal joints should move through full range of motion without restrictions or misalignments that cause interference. A chiropractic adjustment is the tool that increases joint motion and allows optimal nervous system flow by eliminating the restrictions and misalignments.
Chiropractors at The Joint want you to be optimally healthy -- and we want to do everything we can to help you achieve peak performance. Chiropractic supports your strength of body, the functioning of your nervous system and your overall health. We want you to be more fully you. We help you do that by adjusting your spine.
