7 Ways to be Proactive with Your Health

Think back to any time when you felt physical pain, whether neck, back, or stomach pain. The first thought that went through your head was probably of the best ways to treat your symptom. Maybe you looked through your medicine cabinet and took your pick between Advil or Tylenol.

Believe it or not, this is a very normal response. Unfortunately, after taking pain medication, all you’ve done is mask the symptom but not treat the problem. Although temporary relief may be what you think you need at the moment, it’s crucial to recognize that your symptoms are not temporary. They are signals your body is sending to let you know something is wrong.

Disease Care vs. Health Care

It has been said that the traditional medical model focuses on disease care as opposed to health care, addressing injury or disease, after they have manifested. Chiropractic care can help identify the root cause of disease.

Focusing on the root cause of symptoms rather than treating the symptoms themselves, is the heart of the holistic health care model. While many people seek the help of conventional physicians to resolve their physical symptoms, holistic approaches, particularly chiropractic treatment, have been growing steadily in popularity as viable, effective treatment options.

Evidence Based Treatment

In recent years, chiropractic care has placed a greater emphasis than ever on what is considered evidence-based treatment approaches. These are methods that have been scientifically studied, proven effective, and replicated by one or more additional studies or reviews. They are also highly respected by conventional medicine practitioners.

Their unique approach focuses on incorporating the 5 Essentials® for an effective holistic approach to aligned and balanced health. Thankfully, taking control of your health continues to be the trend.

7 Healthy Habits to Keep You On Target

1. Proper Nutrition & Supplementation

Eat an organic, whole food diet with very few processed foods. Supplement your healthy diet with a quality multivitamin/mineral complex such as Daily Essentials For Men or Daily Essentials For Women as an insurance policy in case of potential nutrient deficiencies.

2. Hydration

Stay hydrated with plenty of pure, filtered water. Other beverages are not a substitute for pure water. Drinking water is one of the simplest and most important things you can do for your health.

3. Exercise

Get at a minimum of 30 minutes of moderate to strenuous exercise on most days. We can help discuss the type of exercise that is best for your body and any restrictions you may need to consider.

4. Sleep

Get 7-9 hours of quality sleep every night.

5. Stress Management

Be proactive about engaging in a stress management program. We all have stress. What’s important is having a plan to manage that stress. Meditation, yoga, and leisure walks are good options.

6. Minimize Toxins

Minimize exposure to toxic chemicals (household cleaners, environmental chemicals, medications, etc.). We have Detoxification programs that can help purify the body and reduce the toxic burden.

7. Chiropractic Care

Maintain a balanced physical body by being consistent with your chiropractic care and home care. Make sure your whole family has been checked for subluxation and gets adjusted regularly.

Maintaining Your Health Defenses

With health care costs continuing to rise, your best defense is keeping your family and your finances healthy by caring for your body before you get sick.
