The #1 Thing Blocking You from Optimal Health

Think about all the trillions of cells in your body for a minute. Just image the intelligence that is required within those cells to, for example, multiply and create a new life; a whole new human with all of its’ complexities. Our body knows how to do that…without ANY of our conscious help – isn’t that mind blowing? The point here being, our cells know what they are doing, they have enough divine intelligence within to know what healthy is, and in fact the natural state of our cells and our body is well being. That well being, is what we call homeostasis or being in balance.

The trillions of cells in your body know how to be healthy.

Okay so why are so many people in the world sick or struggling with physical ailments? There are a number of external conditions that throw us out of whack or off balance, the food we eat, the environment we are exposed to, our close relationships, but the one that is actually the most powerful and the one you have the most control over is what goes on between your two ears everyday.

What you think about your health makes a difference.

If you are here reading this article, I am sure you have heard before, there is a direct connection between body and mind, and if you are reaching for some element of greater physical health without attending to what goes on in the mind, you are missing half of the answer. Your reality is a reflection of what you believe to be true. You actually create your own reality based on your individual set of beliefs.

Have you ever taken a step back and asked yourself what you believe to be true about your physical body health or does it just feel like an automatic response based on what you have experienced and observed? Everybody gets sick in the winter; healthy food is expensive, it’s normal to get sick when you’re older, losing weight is hard.

These are all ideas that have been conditioned and accepted within us as facts. But I guarantee you these ideas are not true for every person in the world. There are people who go through winters without being sick, people living happily and healthy well over a century, and there are people at a healthy weight without sacrificing what they want, so what’s the difference?

What you say to yourself on a consistent basis about anything becomes a belief.

Beliefs are formed within us by years of repeating the same thought over until it becomes engrained, becomes a physical pathway in our brain, as well as our default. What most people don’t realize is their power in choosing a belief. Every individual has the power to choose to believe something or not – you are the one in control. And when you being to understand the connection between what you believe and what you experience in life, you suddenly start paying more attention to what you belief about health.

A belief is simply a thought you keep thinking.

New beliefs take time to take hold and it happens through conscious awareness and practice, but you can make a powerful decision right now and decide to be the one that chooses your beliefs about health. Start by asking yourself the question: What do I want to be true about my health? Actually make a list. You will be surprised at the invisible power that pulls you forward when you gain clarity on what it is you want to experience. How do you want to feel about your health? Do you want it to feel easy or stressful? You get to choose.

Our physical bodies are one of the most wondrous creations on this whole planet and you have the power to fully nourish or impede the healthy balance through your thoughts. What will you choose?

The Brain Adjustment: The Shift You Must Make For Your Health

The Brain Adjustment

When it comes to health, most everyone understands that it affects every part of life and so the desire is for more and better health.  What most people don’t understand is that every part of life affects health – that health and life are intimately linked.

See, going on a diet generally isn’t good for your health and the reasons are likely many.  For starters, let’s consider the first 3 letters – die… but with jokes aside, the main reason is that they are usually time bound.  One might say for example, “I’m going to eat a certain way until I get to a desired weight,” but once the weight target has been reached they will likely revert back to their previous lifestyle and almost invariably more weight “climbs” back on. 

This is largely because we as a society have become so near sighted and confused cause with effect.  We view symptoms like excess weight, pain, poor flexibility, even cancer as problems that need to be treated rather than symptoms of an underlying approach to living (the cause).  We are far too caught up with how we feel right now, giving little thought to what we’ve done to get there and where this current approach to life is taking us – are you regularly taking some time to consider your trajectory?  Quite frankly, we are becoming less and less responsible – less and less able to respond most effectively to the stressors and strains that all of us face in this life.

Take for example the world’s fastest growing chronic degenerative disease; type II diabetes.  In a nut shell, here’s how it’s caused: a person is consuming excess carbs and sugars so their pancreas produces insulin to convert it to fat and store it. As the excessive consumption of carbs and sugars continues more fat is stored and when their body (that is the amazing innate intelligence flowing through the nerve system) recognizes that they are too fat, it reduces their insulin sensitivity to stop more fat being stored because it doesn’t want the body to be any fatter (this is a protective mechanism just like pain is a warning to protect from further damage).  What most people do, rather than take responsibility and reduce carbs and sugars, is go to their medical doctor who prescribes insulin to help their body store more fat, meaning they take pills or injections to help them get fatter which is the reason the insulin sensitivity is reducing in the first place!

If we want to be healthy we need to be responsible and this requires self discipline – the proverb “A man without self-control is like a city broken into and left without walls.”  This is so true when it comes to health.  Optimal health requires taking a proactive approach to optimizing each area of our lives because we all come under attack from the 3 Ts (toxins, thoughts and trauma) right throughout life.

This makes sense yet why aren’t we as a society more proactive?  We’ve lost or allowed our VISION to be taken from us.  Without vision people will go with the flow and when a symptom or sickness arises they may take a healthier approach to life to get rid of it but that is an ‘away from’ motivation.  As soon as they are ‘far enough away’, there is no motivation to keep on with this healthier approach and they go back to their old way and often end up in a worse state.  Another proverb that rings true “without VISION people perish.”

So the key for health is having a VISION for your life!  Here are some examples; enjoying life with your grandkids, playing golf/tennis when you are 80, serving your community in your retirement or travelling the world if you want to.  Having a vision will enable you to do the less desirable thing and forgo the instant gratification (eat more of the spinach and less of the ice cream) and achieve a much greater reward.  Having a VISION, with targets along the way and a plan to carry you through is vital for the best life.  A final warning, the quick fix is far more costly… consistency is the driving force behind positive change and remember, your health will never exceed the VISION you have for your life!

If I go to the Chiropractor, do I have to go forever?

Do you have to go to the Chiropractor forever?

Have you ever been adjusted? Or are you terrified of going to a chiropractor because they will make you go forever?

Here, we’re going to break down what chiropractic is, how it can help your body, why you would go in the first place and if there are any legitimate reasons for going ‘forever’.

Let’s start off by explaining what the whole point of chiropractic is.

Your nervous system consists of your brain and spinal cord, which is protected by the bones of your spine. All of the messages that your brain must send to the rest of your body travels through your central nervous system and out to every single cell, tissue and organ in your body to tell it how to function properly and how to heal.

If there are any bones in your spine that have shifted out of position, from injuries, car accidents, falls, sports, stress, sitting on the couch, leaning forward to look at your computer monitor, and any other daily activity that we participate in, the bones put pressure on your nervous system and the messages can’t reach their final destinations to have your body function and heal at 100%.

A chiropractor locates these interferences and adjusts the bones back into place.

So I have to ask you, for how long would you like your nervous system to be free of interference?

Long enough to get you out of pain?
Long enough to allow your body to heal from the flu?
Long enough to prevent cancer, a heart attack, digestive dysfunction?
Or long enough to keep you living a healthy, thriving life through your retirement years?

So you can go to the chiropractor for as long as you’d like to express optimal health. The choice is yours.

[I’m not sure about you, but I’d like my nervous system functioning at 100% forever, so I have a standing appointment with my chiropractor. And I go more often if I ever get sick or run down, to support my nervous system and allow it to help me heal more efficiently and much more quickly.]

But I also have to ask you, how long are you going to brush your teeth for? For as long as you’d like to keep your teeth, right?

You must care for your body or your body begins to degenerate. Your teeth will rot and fall out if you don’t brush them, floss them, visit your dental hygienist for a deep cleaning and get checked by your dentist.

Thankfully our teeth are visible and easily accessible for maintenance.

But our spines are hidden, both on the back side of our body so it’s a little bit ‘out of mind’ but also on the inside of our bodies, where we can’t actually see the bones. This is why it is so important to find a local chiropractor that you are comfortable with and trust, to care for your most important health asset.

Remember, your body can go weeks without eating, days without water, but it can not function for even 1 second without your nervous system. So take care of it… forever!!
