In 57 years of “healthcare” and trillions of dollars in spending how have we become the sickest generation to ever live? Consider this…
As a Nation, we have the highest incidence of Asthma in the world, 70% of all people take daily medication and 33% take painkillers daily.
We also have the highest incidence of kidney disease due to the high consumption of aspirin/paracetamol. By the age of 60, the average Australian takes 7 medications daily and about half the population will die of heart disease. One in three will die of Cancer.
The fact is that trillions of dollars will be spent on our “sick care” system, trying to remove disease with drugs. The sad truth is that until we change our focus from “disease care” to “health care” we will continue to be reliant on this system.
What is ideal “health care”?
Ideal “health care” must encompass the principles of wellness and preventative care. In other words, to make someone healthier the focus has to be on living a life that promotes good health.
There are 5 prerequisites for experiencing optimal health
- Sound central nervous system
- Good nutrition
- Adequate rest, relaxation and sleep
- Good mental attitudes
At North Shore Family Chiropractors Chatswood we recognise that all 5 prerequisites are required for optimal health. However, our primary focus is on ensuring a sound central nervous system.
Why are we so passionate about your nervous system?
Have you ever wondered what controls the function of every cell, tissue and organ in the body? That’s right… your brain via messages sent through the nervous system. The first principle of good health then is to ensure this “master” system is functioning at its best.
In other words, you could be eating the best food and fresh water on the planet, doing the latest and greatest exercise program, meditation, yoga, pilates and so on…… and this will certainly enhance your health and innate healing potential but the fact still remains, if there is pressure on your nervous system that controls and coordinates your whole body, you could be missing out on reaching your ultimate health potential.
Misalignments of the spine due to poor posture, injuries and accidents place stress on the spine and nervous system and can be the cause of so many unwanted health conditions. North Shore Family Chiropractors is committed to finding these misalignments and providing treatment and lifestyle strategies to allow your body to heal and function at 100%.
