In spite of the rate of change in many areas of the human experience, some things never change. For example, we all want to succeed. We don’t frequently change our life goals of health, financial security and happiness, because none of us would choose to be sick, poor or sad. We know that motivation and persistence are two key factors of success, no matter what our goals are. We strive to become healthy and remain healthy. However, frequently our habits reveal that we have slipped into patterns of motivation that hurt us rather than help us.
What motivates us to seek the help of health professionals: health or sickness? Unfortunately, many of us would have to answer that we look for help only after we become sick. When we are motivated by sickness, we seek help only when we already are experiencing symptoms or health issues. In this circumstance, we are not really in control of the quality of our health because we are taking a reactive rather than active approach to healthcare. When we take a reactive approach we rely on pills to mask symptoms. Although this approach may make us feel better temporarily, it never really helps us achieve and maintain health. Reactive healthcare leaves us battling symptoms for most of our lives. Rather than living on the “symptom see-saw,” we need to act on a plan designed to achieve and maintain optimal health.
Corrective chiropractic care and wellness is the best way to achieve this goal. This health care approach is based upon the body’s natural ability to heal itself and is a very important step in a commitment to optimal health. Optimal health is one of our most valuable possessions. We should value ourselves enough to strive for the highest level of health. When we take responsibility for the choices we make regarding health, we give ourselves the best opportunity to achieve all of our health goals. Let us help you and your friends commit to learning more about what steps may need to be taken to stay well.
