How Would You Define Good Health?
There is a greater dimension to health than just feeling good.
Many people answer this question: “good health is feeling good”, however there is so much more to being healthy than how you feel.
WHAT IS HEALTH?
The World Health Organization defines health as: a state of optimal physical, mental and social well being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. Webster’s defines health as: a state of wholeness in which all organs are functioning 100%, 100% of the time. Therefore, health is not just how you feel, it is how you are functioning.
Symptoms are a poor indicator of health and usually show up late in the disease process. For example, thousands of Americans die of heart attacks each and every year and the heart attack is the first sign of disease. You can’t wait until symptoms show up before you decide to act. Would you rather choose a lifestyle of wellness in which your body always functions at an optimal level or unknowingly allow various diseases to progress to a level of crisis before you seek action?
WHERE DOES HEALTH COME FROM?
Health comes from within. Your body has the inborn ability to heal itself naturally without drugs or surgery. You were born to be healthy. For instance, if you cut your arm, the body can heal the cut without band aids or antibiotics. If your body has the ability to heal itself, why doesn’t it? The answer: sometimes we don’t give our body enough time to heal on its own or the actual cause of the problem is still present and interfering with the healing process. Most patients search for a pill or a potion to relieve their discomfort instead of locating the cause of the problem and removing it. By removing the actual cause it allows our body an opportunity to heal naturally.
Remember, healthy people don’t get sick, only unhealthy people get sick.
YOUR MASTER CONTROLLER
Your nervous system controls the function of every cell, tissue, organ and system in your body and coordinates them together so that our body works in perfect harmony. Therefore, our nervous system plays a vital role in healing our body. In order for you to have true health, your nervous system must be able to function without interference. Your central nervous system is so important that nature built armor around it: your skull, and spinal column. However, even with this “inborn protection” our nervous system can experience interference, injury or disturbance. We call this interference to our nervous system: Subluxation.
