Is it Healthcare? or really a Disease Care System?

In today’s society we use this word “health” very freely without regards to real meaning.

Noah Webster wrote in his original version of the Webster’s Dictionary “HEALTH, n. helth. [from heal.] That state of an animal or living body, in which the parts are sound, well organized and disposed, and in which they all perform freely their natural functions.”, he does go further to speak about plants, animals, and religious health.

Current Webster’s definition “a : the condition of being sound in body, mind, or spirit;especially : freedom from physical disease or pain”

World.Health.Organization – Health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.

The part that confuses me is the “in which they(parts) all perform freely their natural function.” because we as a society have tried to circumvent the natural function portion of the definition of health and it (natural function) has been deleted from the current Websters Dictionary and substituted with “sound”.

Let’s see if these statements are true or false:

  1. There is a man who takes statin drugs to change the cholesterol in his body. These drugs help him with natural function.
  2. There is a  man who takes statin drugs to change the cholesterol in his body. These drugs help him to remain sound.

#2 is the current all0pathic(medical) model, where the medicines are distributed to try to stabilize a body that has dysfunction and side effects are minor.

#1 is actually false. To help with natural function, the substance would have to come from nature in a normal environment. Examples an orange, apple, broccoli, etc. Statin pharmaceuticals come from a lab and block functions in the body and as time goes on we start to see the unintended consequences like diabetes.

Here is a list of drugs that were approved by the FDA but now the unintended consequences have  landed many people in the hospitals and/or graves prematurely: Celexa,Lexapro,Fosmax, Zoloft, Topamax, Meridia, Accutane, Wellbutrin,   Paxil, Depakote, Reglan to name a few.

Health does not come from a bottle. It comes from inside all of us. It starts with drinking clean water (your body weight / 2 = ounces per day recommended), eating a balanced diet (preferably the Paleo Diet), getting 8 hours of restful sleep (on your back), brisk 30 minutes of exercise 5x a week, and keeping your command and control system (the nervous system) free of interference.

For 117 years chiropractors have been adjusting the spine to clear interference with the nervous system. As science catches up to the chiropractic adjustment, the scientific world is validating what chiropractors have been saying for over a century.

Scientific advancements that have validated just a fraction of what chiropractors have known for years:

Neck Pain   Spinal Manipulation, Medication, or Home Exercise  for  Neck Pain

Headaches   Dose response and efficacy of spinal manipulation for chronic  headache

Asthma   Chronic pediatric asthma and chiropractic spinal manipulation

Infant Reflux    Chiropractic care of a pediatric patient with reflux disease – Palmer Chiropractic Case – Ramsey

“Chiropractic Safer and More Effective” – Says Medical Researchers

April 2011 – Journal of Occupational & Environmental Medicine

Dr. Trace Palmer – Chiropractor in Richmond Hill, Ga, found this research article outlining the effectiveness and safety of chiropractic care.

New study by Medical Researchers shows Chiropractors are a safer form of maintenance care for your spine.

Maintenance care for spines has been the “backbone” mantra of the Chiropractic profession for decades.

To quote the Medical Researchers “After controlling for severity and demographics, no health maintenance care is generally as good as chiropractor care.” (Spinal Care)

A total of 894 cases followed 1-year using workers’ compensation claims data. Provider types were defined for the initial episode of disability and subsequent episode of health maintenance care.

Chiropractic Adjustment

Results showed that the Disability Reoccurrence (lower is better) for:

Chiropractic   1.00   (safest and most effective  —- Costs Less)

No Care 1.20 (20% more relapses vs a chiropractor)

MD’s 1.60 (60% more relapses vs a chiropractor)

PT’s 2.00 (100% more relapses vs a chiropractor)

Please make note that the “No Care / maybe it will go away” group had 20% more reoccurrences than the chiropractic maintenance group.

Conclusion:  Its about time that you looked at a safe and effective alternative to drugs and surgery, Chiropractors have been providing their patients with proven care for more than 116 years, since 1895.

Thank you and consider that over 85% of the population in the United States don’t visit a chiropractor regularly. But those 15% that do are extending the number of quality of years that they have by prevention through natural chiropractic care. Don’t put off your decision to seek out a chiropractor till it hurts, most of the time degeneration has already set in.
