Chiropractic Good for Overall Health

The method heals from the inside in and has no side effects, unlike pills and other medicines.

Just think about it. Not every person is born with allergies, asthma, sinus problems, and who knows how many more challenges. Why is that? You know, I can't give you a scientific reason why but I sure can give you a mom's point of view that has seen more health success in my family because of only one change - CHIROPRACTIC.

We are all conceived the same way. We all develop the same way. Unfortunately, what mom does while we are growing plays a huge part in our future.

I am not saying moms do anything wrong. Moms are exposed to so many challenges every day. We have stress! Face it, stress harms or kills. Stress can be in the form of chemical, physical, and emotional. Now try to show me one person that does not fall in that category. I don't believe there is one. But I will stand corrected if you can show me one.

I have found that it is hard to avoid stress; however, we can help our bodies handle stress easier. That is CHIROPRACTIC. I have been under care for over 23 years now and my body knows when it needs to be "checked." Checked is simply having my spine examined by my chiropractor to see if my body is trying to fight whatever challenge I am facing that day. By doing this, I am making sure my immune system is working at 100% to fight off the bad germs.

When my daughter was ill constantly up until the age of 2-1/2 years of age with ear infections, I was at whits-end. Just like moms today, we try to find whatever we can to ease our child's discomforts. No parent wants to see their child feeling uncomfortable.

In today's world, we are all beginning to seek out that "natural" way of living. If we are seeking natural, why are we still medicating? Medicating is not natural. We see more commercials and hear more talks about the wonders of these new over-the-counter all natural "pills."

Seriously, are we that dumb? I don't know, perhaps we are because the last time I checked, pharmaceutical companies are still growing strong in a "bad economy." Are you really prepared to care for your child for the rest of his/her life if they experience a side effect from these natural medications that we do not truly educate ourselves on.

I had to question myself on that, plus I had family and friends constantly criticizing mine and my husband's choice of health care. We heard over and over again, "how can you do this?," "what are you thinking?," "how can you seriously not take your child to a doctor?" Well, we educated ourselves. We decided we were going to take control of our health not our family, not friends, not the government - just us. We took full responsibility for how our children were going to live their lives - healthy. CHIROPRACTIC has NO side effect.

What has got me on such an uproar? I am sitting here watching a tv show about doctors and health care. They are promoting healthier living but it all goes back to the newest and latest procedures available and medicine - trying to heal from the outside in. CHIROPRACTIC is healing from the inside in.

Come on, we are grown people, why can't we think for ourselves? We did wonderful for years before the insurance companies and drug companies controlled our futures. We are sicker today--not because we do not have health insurance--but because we do not know how to take care of ourselves.

Now my family is not perfect. We are still struggling with the choice we make every day especially when it comes to food choices. However, my children do not get sick like others - if they miss school, normally it is our choice not because they are ill. They still get colds like others but they may be uncomfortable for 1 or 2 days max but can function fully during this time. My children, other than my oldest, has not had a medication in their bodies at all. After 2-1/2 years of my oldest being sick, we took control and our kids are healthy.
