5% Dead

Health and Function

Isn’t death just an extreme case of failure of the body to function? So, if there is a decrease in function, isn’t that a step towards death? Health defined by the World Health Association, is “the optimum expression of mental, social, and physical well-being”. People sometimes confuse the way they feel with how healthy they are. It is an easy confusion, but we know this is not true. For example, you can have cancer in your body that is 100% painless, for years! We are trained by advertisements to reach for products that claim to fix our symptoms, but this is far from moving us towards the goal of health.

95% Alive?

So many times people ask about their back pain or neck ache when I tell them I’m a chiropractor in Kennesaw, GA. It is wonderful to know that people regard for chiropractic and chiropractors in that they know chiropractic can help with painful conditions. I also find it interesting that some of these people choose to live with these aches and pains, despite knowing that chiropractic can help.

It’s just old age!

It is not normal to have aches and pains as we get older. This is just a sign of a decaying spine! Saying it’s “just old age” is an easy way out of acknowledging what we innately know, which is that if we did something about it sooner, we would not be in this condition now. Yet some feel that the thought of doing something new, or the thought of doing something that takes effort, such as getting checked regularly by a chiropractor, is too much of a burden. It is never too late to start moving yourself towards health.

Keep doing the same thing and expect a different result.

Practice makes perfect, right? No! Perfect practice makes perfect. Our desire for perfection may be as old as time itself. And while perfection is unattainable, that is not an excuse for indifference, laziness, or procrastination, especially when it comes to your health! Putting your health on the back burner only leads to greater pain, suffering, and cost later on!
