WHAT WE GET WHEN WE GIVE

By Christine Carter, PHD

Did you know that kinder people actually live longer, healthier lives? People who volunteer tend to experience fewer aches and pains. Giving help to others protects overall health. People 55 and older who volunteer for two or more organizations have an impressive 44% lower likelihood of dying-and that's after sifting out every other contributing factor, and many more. This means that volunteering is nearly as beneficial to our health as quitting smoking!




It isnt just that kind of people also tend to be healthier and happier, or that happy , healthy people are more kind. Experiments have actually demonstrated again and again that kindness toward others actually causes us to be happier, improves our health, and lengthens our lives.

We feel so good when we give because we get what researchers call a "helpers high," or a distinct physical sensation associated with helping. About half of participants in one study report that they feel stronger and mor…

HOW DO I GET WELL?

There are 2 reasons people get sick:

          1. They are deficient in a requirement to express health. This could be a vitamin or mineral. It could be water or oxygen. It could be movement of the body.

          2. They have something toxic in their system. This could be withheld anger. It could be artificial colors from foods. It could be drugs, alcohol, caffeine, or nicotine.

These are chronic stressors. So how do we get and stay well? Imagine this analogy.

We are born into a swimming pool with a backpack and a flotation device. The flotation device has a small leak in it that will last about 120 years. This is the average life expectancy. What stress represents in your life is a rock in the backpack. Every time you put a rock in the backpack, you sink a little lower in the water. Day to day life becomes more of a struggle and it is harder to keep your head above water.

Do you think that the answer to the backpack full of rocks is to take a blood pressure medicine to keep your blo…

The Truth

"We Chiropractors work with the subtle substance of the soul. We release the imprisoned impulse, the tiny rivulet of force, that emanates from the mind and flows over the nerves to cells and stirs them into life. We deal with the majestic power that transforms common food into living, loving, thinking clay; that robes the earth with beauty, and hues and scents the flowers with the glory of their air." - B.J. Palmer, developer of Chiropractic

The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. We see this every day as Chiropractors. If we were merely the sum of our parts we would be nothing more than a cadaver. But we have an innate (or inner) intelligence that keeps us living, moving and breathing.

So, just like B.J says, we work with that innate intelligence every time we adjust you.Yes, the adjustments will help your back pain, your headaches, your carpal release that inborn healer inside of you that knows how to create new skin over a cut, that knows how to regulate all your …
