What is your health philosophy?

Today, there are two opposing healthcare philosophies becoming more visible.

The first is allopathic medicine.

This is a mechanistic approach to health in which the body is divided into different systems and a medical doctor who focuses solely on one system is considered a specialist. For example, cardiologists are heart specialists and respiratory specialists focus on the lungs and respiratory system. These doctors diagnose their patient’s illness by examining smaller parts of the whole structure. A condition is diagnosed by gathering test results and symptomatology, then introducing  a treatment, usually drugs, in hopes the medication will relieve the symptoms and restore the sick body to health. This approach disregards the understanding that the human body is very intelligent and is fully capable of healing the body of disease and weakness. This human intelligence needs no help, other than a fully functioning nervous system. Sometimes the body may deteriorate so badly that it needs drug intervention to sustain life until the body can regain its ability to heal itself. 

The second health care philosophy is chiropractic care. The chiropractic philosophy of health focuses on YOU and is centered on the philosophy that the human body, being knit together in a wonderful way, will heal itself given the right opportunity and circumstances. The passion for the Doctor of Chiropractic is to promote the healing process by locating and removing any interference or blockage in the nervous system, which may  be interfering with your ability to express your maximum health potential. The philosophy of chiropractic encourages us to take control of our own health, listen to the messages our body is sending us, and get to the cause of the problem instead of simply covering them up with medication.

What is your philosophy of health? If you suffer from pain or illness and desire a long-term solution to optimal health, make an appointment TODAY to visit your chiropractor. If you value your body’s ability to heal itself and you believe natural approaches are best, choose the philosophy of chiropractic care.

You will be glad you did!
