What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a branch of the healing arts which is based upon the understanding that good health depends, in part, upon a properly functioning nervous system (especially the spine, and the nerves extending from the spine to all parts of the body). “Chiropractic” comes from the Greek word Chiropraktikos, meaning “effective treatment by hand.” Chiropractic stresses the idea that the cause of many disease processes begins with the body’s inability to adapt to its environment.
Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that your body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism, controlled by the brain, spinal cord and nerves of the body. The vertebrae, which protect the nervous system, when misaligned or lose its normal motion, causes malfunction of the tissues and organs throughout the body.
What is Wellness?
The word “wellness” has no universally accepted definition, but we should know that it has nothing to do crisis care as delivered in a hospital setting.
WELLNESS: “A purposeful choice of a lifestyle characterized by personal responsibility, self-control, good nutrition, exercise and faith to achieve maximum personal enhancement of physical, mental, and emotional health.”
“The power that made the body is the only power that can heal the body, it happens no other way.”

In case you missed my prior posts I wrote about how sickness is not the result of prescription drug shortage, and the necessity of Chiropractic care in achieving your optimal health. I also wrote about the importance of nutrition and why we must take supplements. In today’s post I will briefly discuss the role of exercise.
There is a obesity epidemic in children ages 2-19 with 33% overweight, leading to a dramatic increase in childhood diabetes. Obese children are much more likely to become obese adults with all of the degenerative diseases associated with obesity.
Regular exercise is required for optimal health. Walking is the oldest physical activity of the human race. Jordan Rubin, NMD, PhD., writes that a brisk one or two mile walk everyday increases enzyme and metabolic activity and may increase calorie burning for up to twelve hours afterward.
Stop looking for a parking space close to your destination instead choose a spot far across the parking lot and walk in from there. Choose to take the stairs, forget the elevators. Go for a walk in the woods or take a walk on the beach. Walk through your neighborhood and let your neighbors know that somebody really does live in your house. When the weather isn’t cooperating go walk in the mall.
We all need exercise. Walking requires no special equipment and no health club membership. So turn off the TV, turn off the computer, get off the couch, put away the potato chips and go for a walk. Start taking steps to improve your health.
If you are physically unable to walk, use a stationary bike or go swimming. There are many everyday low impact activities that you can do for exercise. Whatever it is, just do it.
There are no shortcuts for achieving your optimal health. But in my opinion, and the opinion of many other health care professionals, optimal health is a combination of regular chiropractic care, proper nutrition, supplementation, and exercise.
