What does it mean to be healthy? Is it a place I can get to? First, we must agree that health is not a destination but a continual pursuit. It is a pursuit of increased capacity to adapt to everything around you, your environment and your stressors.
Agreed? Okay, so what defines your stress?
Stress in its three forms; physical, chemical and emotional are a constant barrage on the body. It causes changes in the body structurally that reduce your neurological efficiency. The status of your nervous system directly affects your ability to maneuver in your world. There are two ways to increase the gap between them, which is the difference between the affect of your stressors on you and your ability to deal with them.
Either you reduce the stressors or you increase your efficiency.
Looking at this closely, you can only reduce your stress so much. Life happens. Hence, you need a way to increase your ability to deal with those stressors. This is what NeuroStructural chiropractic looks at. As the effect of stressors in your body are reduced through specific care, there is a subsequent increase in the nervous system’s ability to function and deal with your environment; your stressors.
The difficult part in this whole situation is that you may not know you have a problem since the primary cause itself is painless. This is why a comprehensive NeuroStructural and NeuroFunctional evaluation is crucial to understand what your current health status is.
Today is the beginning of the rest of your life; a journey in the pursuit of health. Before you can embark on any endeavor, you need to know where you are now to set the course. Learn more.
