If you ask what the number one killer is, most people would say it’s heart disease or cancer but the real killer that tops the list is STRESS! Particularly unadapted STRESS.
A little stress is no big deal; some stress is enjoyable and even good for you–riding an amusement park ride, getting a new house, starting a business, going out on a first date, getting married, having a baby, and many others. After all, life is full of stresses that challenge us, teach us and help us develop.
But some stress is bad. Chronic, unrelenting stress that stays with us, that seems to never end, that we can’t recover from – that’s the kind of stress that ruins minds and bodies.
It’s the real silent killer. You’ll find stress-weakened tissue that cancers develop in; you’ll find it in the recesses of the heart inflaming blood vessels and valves; you’ll find it upsetting the immune system, setting the stage for autoimmune diseases; and you’ll find it slowly weakening your nervous system and mental health: it is chronic unhealthy stress.
Stress can be physical overwork or overplay. Stress can be toxic caused by pollution, pesticides in our food, GMO (genetically modified) foods, dental/oral infections, not enough sleep, constant worry –the list is long. To be alive is to be under stress.
Chiropractic addresses serious silent stress that weakens you on many levels and prevents your body from functioning at its optimum subluxation. Subluxation is a distortion in your body that prevents you from functioning at 100%.
Chiropractors spend many long hours studying how to locate and correct (release or adjust) subluxations. Because most subluxations are painless you may never know that this stress is building up inside you affecting you physically and mentally.
Freed from the stress of subluxations, your entire being will function closer to its ideal; you’ll have more energy and a healthier immune system that is better able to deal with the many challenges life throws at you.
