Avoiding theTrain Wreck

Medical preventative care focuses mainly on the early detection and treatment of disease. Their thinking – if you catch a condition in its earliest stage (i.e. breast cancer or diabetes), you have a better chance of managing it. Although that rationale bears some truth, it leaves you waiting for the train wreck to happen before you can do anything about it.

In Chiropractic, care focuses on supporting the ONE system dedicated to preserving the health of your whole body, your spine and nerve system. Because all normal body functions are first patterned in your nerve system, so must “dis-ease” be patterned in your nerves system (subluxation) before it develops into an illness. It simply makes more sense to avoid the train wreck in your spine, before it manifests in your body.

The best prevention doesn’t simply “test and wait” until you develop the disease… it focuses on removing the cause before it has a chance to manifest. That begins with interference in your nerve system. Are your loved ones protecting their health with regular chiropractic care?

Put it Out Yourself

You wouldn’t call the fire department to blow out a candle, or an electrician to change a light bulb! Those are simple tasks you can handle on your own. Yet every day, people call on a specialist or expert for healing a problem their “doctor on the inside” could easily take care of.

Maybe it’s lack of understanding, fear of the unknown or concern it could be something life threatening. Overkill is the norm in today’s medical world. Over testing, over diagnosing, over treating… all done for the sake of “thoroughness.” In reality, all it does is strike fear in the hearts of patients who just need to hear the truth.

The greatest challenge we have as Chiropractors is to help you realize how powerful you truly are! The same intelligence that holds the cosmos together, is holding you together too! In the rare case you develop a health problem where outside help is needed, rest assured it will be there for you. In the meantime – pause, take a deep breath and relax. If your nerve system is clear, your body is capable of putting out the “flame” on its own!

If life was a game of Jenga, stress would be the act of sliding out one puzzle pieced after another, until your entire “tower of health” topples over!

Unexpected car repair bill – slide out a block. Emergency call from your kid’s school nurse – slide out another one. Slip down a few stairs – slide out three more. Before you know it, you’re one stress event away from major Jenga catastrophe… that is, unless your chiropractor reverses the momentum and adjusts those loose blocks back in, restoring stability and integrity to your health!

Stress can cause you to subluxate (misalign), and its effects are detrimental to your overall health! So don’t wait until your last Jenga stress block is pulled before seeking help. It’s far easier to keep your body standing strong with preventative chiropractic care, than to rebuild it after the collapse.

Healing in a Hurricane

If the healing process can be equated to restoring a house, imagine what it would be like trying to perform renovations during a Cat 3 Hurricane. This is how the constant barrage of external physical, chemical and emotional stresses can negatively affect your body’s natural building process – and no one is immune to it.

When asked what the most important contribution Chiropractic has to a person’s health, Dr. Thurman Fleet responded “adaptation.” Adaptation is the ability to face external stress and respond to it in a way that protects your internal physiology and leaves you stronger for it. Your nerve system holds the responsibility of assessing the outer world and constantly adjusting your inner world to survive in it. It’s the “storm wall” that stands between you and Mother Nature’s wrath!

Your ability to withstand wave after wave of daily stress ultimately determines your health. Regular chiropractic care maintains the nerve strength you need to stand firm in a world that is always trying to break you down. With a properly conditioned nerve system, you’ll be strong enough to handle whatever “weather” life throws at you!

Rights and Responsibilities

You’re no doubt familiar with the basic human rights penned by Thomas Jefferson. Our Creator did indeed bless us with life, freedom, and the ability to pursue happiness. But when it comes to your healthcare, it’s important not to confuse rights with responsibilities. For example,


·         While you have the RIGHT to eat at any restaurant that suits your taste – you are RESPONSIBLE for choosing healthy items on the menu to fuel your body properly.

·         While you have the RIGHT to sit on the couch and binge watch Netflix all day – you are RESPONSIBLE for exercising regularly, so your body doesn’t become lethargic and sickly.

·         While you have the RIGHT to go bungee jumping, ride roller coasters or take up cage fighting – you are RESPONSIBLE for keeping your spine in alignment (free of subluxation interference), so your nerve system can clearly orchestrate all the physiological processes needed to keep you alive.


Yes we all have the unalienable right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. But only YOU can be held responsible for preserving and maintaining your health! Yes, your Creator gave you the breath of life, a body and an innate intelligence to govern them all. But it’s up to YOU – not your insurance company, your primary physician or your political party – to guard them well!
