Luck Of The Draw

Things are weird in the world right now.

The political climate is very extreme.

If you have an opinion about anything it’s guaranteed to be wrong.

COVID-19 has taken over everyone.

The list goes on and on. 

A client was very surprised when I told them that I wasn’t very concerned about COVID. They couldn’t believe that even though the entire country is freaking out that I was relatively calm about the idea. 

There is no doubt that coronavirus is dangerous like every virus but what is interesting is that it effects everyone differently.

I have a couple of friends who have gotten it and they haven’t been impacted at all. Then you have people who are laid up in the hospital for a couple weeks really fighting for their lives….why is that?

That is a question that actually sparked the beginning of Chiropractic as a whole! How can two men be working at the same table and one gets sick and the other does not?

When we think of our health and the potential of us getting sick often times people will say things like they always get sick or it runs in my family. 

That may be true but there is a way to change that. 

Our genetic make up or health isn’t a single card dealt to us. It is much closer to hand of cards. Based on certain lifestyle modifications you make determines what you may experience health wise.

This idea is called epigenetics. It’s almost as if you are able to turn on and off certain genes. This idea explains how certain people might get sick while others may not. It is solely based on lifestyle and certain habits that some people have. Someone who never exercises, eats poorly, doesn’t have a properly functioning nervous system is more likely to get sick than someone that does not. 

At The Specific Chiropractic Centers we focus on the nervous system side of things. The nervous system is made up of the brain, brainstem, spinal cord, and all of the nerves in the body. This is the system that controls everything that is going on in the body. If there is a nervous system issue going on then the body isn’t working at it’s full potential which means you are more susceptible to having some sort of health issue or experience symptoms. 

You might think the immune system is a separate entity but it isn’t at all. If we thing about Christopher Reeve (superman), he fell of a horse, broke his neck, and was paralyzed. He ultimately died of an infection that his immune system couldn’t fight off because of a major nervous system issue going on due to being paralyzed. 

So….what are you going to do with the hand you’ve been dealt? If you want to take your health back into your hands feel free to reach out to us and we can help point you in the right direction! Just remember that you have the choice to be healthy or not!
