Imagine a world where more people believed in the power within themselves. Where more people felt educated and empowered in their health decisions. People, including your family. How could your own be empowered to healthy living?
Where more people trusted that their bodies were designed to heal. Where more people believed that they were already whole. How would that change the world?
It’s no surprise that the United States is one of the sickest countries in the world. Although we consume the most pharmaceuticals by far, we rank almost LAST in terms of health in developed countries.
It is the belief that our bodies are inadequate and dependent upon external interventions that continue to drive the outside-in approach to health.
It is not a lack of pharmaceutical toxins or having excess parts in our body that are creating sickness in our culture. It comes down to where we believe health comes from, how we view “symptoms” and the daily choices we make for ourselves and our family when it comes to healthy living.
Healthy Living In Today’s Society
A healthy world begins with the power that made the body and ends with the understanding that the same intelligence also heals it. When we change our belief system, we make different choices.
As we think about the world we want to leave for our children, some of us focus on the environment, financial stability, or higher education. What about how we are instilling our beliefs around health and well-being in them?
Chiropractic Care for Healthy Living
Chiropractic is the art, science, and philosophy of all things natural. It is based on the philosophy that an innate intelligence resides within every living being with the purpose to create balance through recognizing our internal and external environment and adapting with appropriate responses.
Physical, chemical, and emotional stressors can cause subluxations, creating interference in the communication pathway of our nervous system. Chiropractic adjustments remove interference, allowing for optimal integration and function.
Chiropractic Care for Children
Subluxation in children can commonly show up as:
delays in developmental milestones
low muscle tone
The severity of the stressors and the length of time their systems have been dealing with it, leads to an adaptive pattern of sub-optimal function and development. These processes commonly start at birth, especially if there were interventions such as cesarean, forceps/vacuum assistance, or fertility issues.
Getting your child checked for subluxation and adjusted by a pediatric trained chiropractor as early as possible allows for optimal growth, development, and adaptability.
Greater than that, chiropractic teaches them that their bodies are amazing healing vessels and that the choices they make affect their health and well-being. It also allows them the opportunity to reach their potential and thrive throughout their lifetime.
Empowering Our Children to Healthy Living
A healthy world begins with empowering our children, educating them about their health, and strengthening the relationship they have with themselves. Teaching them to feel, listen and trust what their bodies are telling them because it is a sacred message from the innate intelligence within them.
Our beliefs are passed down through generations. So, why wait? Why not start changing your family lineage and foster this for your children and your future generations today?
The world is theirs. Everything they need is already within them. Let us help you give them the best support to become everything that they are meant to be.
