Ever feel like your life is a little out of order? Disorganized even? Especially after the holidays? Want to start off the new year on the right track? January just so happens to be National Get Organized Month. But where to start? Well, I’ve always felt that the best place to start is from within.
“Resolve to be thyself; and know that he who finds himself, loses his misery.” - Matthew Arnold
The new year is a great time to reflect back on the things that were but to also look forward to things to come. What are some things that you want to change, improve, add, omit, connect to, etc. this year? Maybe learn a new language? Take that trip to the Grand Canyon you keep putting off? Finally lose that “Freshman Fifteen” fifteen years later? Maybe just get healthier overall? If your goal is to get healthier this year, Chiropractic care is a great place to start.
Ever have the feeling that there is some inner energy that helps guide you along your day, week, month, year, life? What if there was a way to help keep you tapped into this energy? The closer we get in contact with the power within, the greater potential for that power to express itself. Chiropractic works directly with this energy.
Chiropractic is based on the principle that all life is intelligent and organized. That energy source of intelligence and organization comes from within us. In chiropractic we call this your Innate Intelligence. This intelligence is expressed through every organ, gland and tissue of our body. This intelligence keeps our organs organized. This is where the term “organ” comes from when talking about the heart, lungs, kidneys, etc.- they have organization. To keep all the organs on the same page and working properly, we have a specially adapted organ that controls all the other organs. This special organizing organ is called the Nerve System. The Nerve System is composed of the brain, spinal cord and nerve fibers.
It’s our Nerve System that controls all the functioning of our body. And if we want our body to function at an optimal organized state- we need our Nerve System to function at an optimal organized state. Any sort of impedance or inference with the Nerve System can ultimately interfere with how our body functions as a whole. Chiropractic works directly with the Nerve System. So as a Chiropractor, I work directly with improving the function of the Nerve System by helping remove a particular interference to it.
Starting within is really about reflecting inward on the self. You can’t change the things around you without first changing YOU. Like they say: the best time to start is always now.
“And now we welcome the new year, full of things that have never been” - Rainer Maria Rilke
Here is to the new healthy you.
