Walnut Creek Chiropractor Weekly Sticky: Clean Garbage Cans Don’t Attract Flies

Ever notice that flies like to congregate around dirty, neglected garbage cans? You don’t usually see them swarming near clean ones. The same can be said for germs, bugs and viruses.

Germs are like flies… they’re opportunistic. Give them a dirty place to settle and they’ll multiply. Provide a weak host and they’ll take advantage. But that’s not the case in clean, well kept environments. BJ Palmer, the developer of Chiropractic said ‘if the germ theory was true, we would all be dead…’ He recognized that germs thrive in dis-eased (Subluxated) individuals who can’t fight back, not healthy strong ones.

If you keep your body tidy with proper hygiene, good nutrition and most important – a clear Nerve System, germs and bugs are less capable of taking up residence in you. And if they make the mistake of trying too, you’re healthy well-adjusted body will give them the boot! Go see your chiropractor

Chiropractor Weekly Sticky: Healing on a Spare Donut

In case you get a flat, the temporary “donut” in your trunk is meant to get you off the road and to the nearest service station for proper repair ASAP. Manufacturer’s instructions warn you to take it slow and easy when driving on them – those tiny tires aren’t designed to withstand the load of normal driving. But regardless of that warning, you’ve probably seen some idiot speeding down the highway on one, oblivious to the potential risks.

Some people treat their health that way. When they get an injury or a health problem they mask their symptoms with ‘spare tire’ medication, all the while continuing the activities that got them there in the first place. They pay little attention to the risks of temporarily patching their problem with drugs and pass on fixing the CAUSE of their problem. That can get you into trouble.

When it comes to acute or chronic health problems, the best policy is to fix the underlying cause of the problem the right way instead of masking the symptoms with medication. That’s the core philosophy of drugless Chiropractic care. In the short term drugs may bring you false comfort, but in the long run you’re risking a serious blow out.
