Feeling better or Better feeling?

Healthy lifestyle with chiropractic care

Health care as we know it in this country is focused on stomping out symptoms and conditions. We have been taught that since our earliest memories. If something is hurting mum kisses it to make it better. If it is more significant, we get an over the counter medication to make it go away. If we are disturbed, we reach for caffeine, television, alcohol, food or other sub- stances to numb our- selves, all in the attempt to silence what we are feeling. However, is that in our best interest?

All of your senses are necessary from seeing and hearing to feeling. What you sense allows you to respond, to react, and to adapt. If you put your hand on a hot stove are you better off to feel it or not. In fact, some very serious conditions, such as leprosy, involve the state of not being able to feel. You have the most intricate and sensitive autonomic and sensory nerve system of any creature on the planet. This has evolved over millennia to create a being that is the most fit to survive. Spinal subluxations are literally blown neural circuits. They are where your nerve system has failed to adapt to a physical, chemical or emotional event. From the fall over your bicycle handlebars as a kid to the upset you experienced with the loss of a loved one. They are short term survival strategies that are effective for you to get on with your life. However, as these distortions fragment your nervous system it leaves you dis-connected from who you truly are and living up to your quality of life potential. The traumas of your past literally alienate, isolate, separate part of your physiology from one another. You end up living in a body amour of your history. As your nervous system chooses to wake up it sends messengers for you to pay attention. The aching shoulder, the bulging waistline, your lack of energy and so on. The healthier you are the more subtle the messenger and the quicker you respond. This sicker you are the louder the messenger and the more destructive it is to how you live your life. If you were in the jungle would it be more advantageous to recognize a lion by its roar or its breath? Sometimes waking up is hard to do and the longer you hit the snooze alarm the harder it is to wake up.

Returning you to the state you were in before you had this symptomatic situation that is chaotic to your life has been the focus of health care. But that is not good enough because that is the state that got you to the situation you are in, to the symptom you are experiencing, the condition you have.

Disease care is further anesthetising you from your life to help you survive short term and for crisis recovery. Health care, wellness care, is about better connection to the perfection within you so you can feel everything.

Health is wholeness, healing is the process of becoming more whole. As you have greater connection to your source you will feel more. You may feel the parts of you that have been numb throughout your life, the unexpressed emotional upset, the detoxification of the chemical exposures you have experienced, the physical traumas that you drugged. Perhaps you will feel for the first time in your life!
