It’s been said that chiropractic adjustments can add up to 15 years to your life! If that’s not reason enough to start getting adjusted, I don’t know what is! Every time you get an adjustment, it helps strengthen and build your immune system, which is essential to helping your body fight disease.
I want to stress the importance of not skipping this step. Many people have become so used to feeling unwell that they have no idea what it feels like to be healthy!
If you had asked me on July 31, 2012 how I felt, I would have replied with an enthusiastic “Great!” It wouldn’t have been a lie. I did believe that I felt great. However, the next day, I was diagnosed with cancer.
Talk about a mind game!
I learned that health is not the absence of symptoms, sickness or disease but the presence of life.
I began to get adjustments 3-4 times a week. I did this for two years, even after my cancer was “gone” because I believe in the importance of maintenance. After two years, I went down to getting adjusted 1-2 times a week.
I still continue to get adjusted every week, even to this day! Not only did it heal things within my body, it began to create a healthy defense mechanism against other disease and illness.
Dan Sullivan described chiropractic care by saying, “A chiropractic adjustment influences many aspects of human performance because it removes interference from the brain and central system, allowing the nervous system to perceive and coordinate more efficiently and effectively.”
In my journey, I’ve come to learn that our bodies are fascinating creations that know how to heal themselves when given the proper tools. For example, I suffered from vertigo for three years. Anyone who has experienced it can attest to the fact that it can completely derail your entire day! Would you believe that after suffering for three years, my vertigo was completely gone within three adjustments? Three years worth of suffering were completely alleviated in just three visits! Amazing!
As I said, when I first began going to my chiropractor, I had no idea how bad I actually felt until I began to see a difference after a few adjustments.
The good news is that when your spine is aligned the way God created and intended, it is built to last!
