First of all, let me ask you why you brush your teeth everyday? Do they hurt? Of course not, you say. Well, taking superb care of my spine and nervous system (brain, spinal cord, and all the nerves of the body) is an essential part of my well being. Here is why.
1. My goal is to live to an energetic and vibrant 100 years of age and to still be able to drive or walk myself to my chiropractic appointments. I know that I need an optimally functioning spine and nervous system for this to even be remotely possible.
2. A happy spine feels great! When I am adjusted, I feel a surge of energy when I am feeling sluggish, and a wave of relaxation when I am feeling anxious. The nerves of my body simply hum with perfect energy and my spine feels flexible and tall.
3. It is easier to stay well than to fix problems. We know this when it comes to our teeth, our car, and even our home furnaces. It is even more important for your body!
4. Nurturing my body is one of my favorite things to do. I choose to fill my life with chiropractic care, massage therapy, exercise, yoga stretching, delicious and healthy home-cooked food, regular breaks and vacations, good books, fresh air, meditation, and time with family and friends. Life is good and you can choose to create better health.
There you have it – why I get adjusted regularly… by my chiropractor, Dr. Pat, of course!
