The PMG (Pharmaceutical-Medical-Governmental) Complex has stolen the word, and the concept, “WELLNESS.” Wellness is kind of an updated version of the concept of good health, or the more popular “healthy lifestyle.” All the while, Kaiser Permanente, in their endless ads, insists that it will help you “thrive.” Lotsa luck!
What does Medicine have to offer in the way of health or wellness? NOTHING. I am not saying that there is no place for Medicine, nor am I saying that Medicine is populated by bad people. What I am bringing out to you is that the purpose, the intent, of Medicine is NOT health, though it is commonly referred to as “health care.” Medicine is, by definition, the diagnosis and treatment of disease. They define and attack the disease, which has nothing to do with achieving wellness.
Realize that everything Medicine does, essentially drugs and surgery, is “Outside-in.” If we were born with a DEFICIENCY OF DRUGS AND AN EXCESS OF ORGANS, this process would achieve health. Alas, this is not to be. Being brutally honest, there is nothing in Medicine that promotes wellness.
Wellness, or “the healthy lifestyle,” if you prefer, is based upon healing, and function, from Above-down, Inside-out. People talk about the body’s ability to heal itself. Harvard book-writing M.D.’s like Deepak Chopra and Andrew Weil have become celebrities spouting this as revelation. Chiropractors have been saying this since 1895.
Want wellness? Eat well, exercise, rest well and maintain a healthy mental attitude. MOST IMPORTANTLY? Achieve and maintain a healthy brain and nervous system, as free as possible from interference… subluxation… so that they can control and coordinate every cell, tissue, organ and system in the body for the benefit of the whole. THIS IS CHIROPRACTIC.
You might say that so-and-so is healthy. Well, they may not be obviously sick. But if they are subluxated, by definition, they are not healthy. They are not well.
Regular lifetime chiropractic care is THE most important factor in Wellness.
