Is Wellness weird?

Wellness is a word that is in vogue; however, it is not only misunderstood, it is roundly abused and misused. More to the point, the regular medical folks are doing their best to co-opt this word. They even begin with the feeling of wellness, with Kaiser ads talking about eating broccoli and doing yoga, etc.

In Rite-Aid, you can get a "Wellness" card. And, in CVS, about the pharmacy counter, it says "Wellness Center." If the pharmacy is a wellness center, what is a Disease Center?

Wellness is being well... healthy. You don't get health by fighting disease, just like you don't get light in a room by fighting darkness. You put on the light. You turn the switch.

If your "switches" are on "off," there is no drug, no surgical procedure, that will turn those switches to "on." This is the sole province of straight Chiropractic. We do not fight or cure disease. We correct interference (vertebral subluxation) to the master system, the nervous system, and get out of the way. We do not fight the darkness. A chiropractic adjustment, in a sense, flicks the switch, allowing your light to shine through.

This is wellness.
