Many people wonder if they are in need of a spinal check-up by a chiropractor. Here is a little test you can give yourself to determine whether or not you should go to a chiropractor. Ask yourself the following questions:
Am I alive?
Do I have a spine?
Do I have a nervous system?
If you answer “Yes” to these three questions, drop what you’re doing and call to make an apointment at your favorite D.C.
Throughout most of your life you’ve been getting various check-ups from different doctors, yet you’ve ignored your spinal health. Think about it: you can live without teeth, you can live without eyes, you can live without ears, gallbladder, apendix, kidneys, etc., BUT can you live without a spine? Never! Yet, why do we ignore spinal health?
The answer is obvious, we weren’t taught spinal health. That’s really surprising in light of the fact that, for thousands years, in many different cultures, the health of the spine was considered essential to the health of the body in general. The ancient Chinese and Japanese were quite aware of the spine; they developed the art of back walking for ill people, and as a general tune-up.
The Indians developed Yoga exercises. Among African tribes, European tribes, and many others indigenous tribes, you find spinal health considered one of the most important aspects of over all health.
However, within the last 300 years, spinal “awareness” has waned considerable. And, when chemical medicine, which is now dominant in this society, came on the scene, spinal health was all but forgotten.
This is quite ironic considering what Hippocrites, the so-called Father of Medicine said: “Look well to the spine for the cause of diseases.”
Hippocrites, who stressed proper diet, exercise, rest, spinal adjustments and other “natural cures,” realized that true health could only be achieved by bringing these many factors into play in order to achieve balance of the whole person. That is true “holistic” health. And total health requires that the spine be given utmost consideration.
Bring your whole family for chiropractic spinal check-ups, and see a beautiful improvement in everyone’s well being. See your family with higher resistance to disease, more energy, less health problems, and most important of all, a DRUGLESS, NATURAL approach to health and healing.
