The primary reason that natural healing or holistic healing methods work is because they raise a person’s resistance to disease. Thus, they are essentially the only viable recourse for preventative health care.
The major keys to health are (1) Alignment, (2) Diet, (3) Exercise and (4) Positive Mental State.
Chiropractic is essential because through the normal alignment of the spine nerve irritation is relieved and, with normal nerve transmission throughout the body, body resistance is increased.
Diet is crucial because simply “we are what we eat”. If we abuse our bodies with poor quality foods, achieving health would be difficult.
Exercise has been highly recommended for increasing strength and endurance.
The Positive Mental Attitude is important to tie all the health factors together. Without a good mental attitude (healthy, vibrant) true health is difficult to achieve.
It would be wise to check with your Chiropractor to determine a program combining exercise, diet, and Chiropractic together with a positive mental attitude.
