I haven't posted a blog in quite some time so I decided it was time to take the time.
I really enjoy doing these but have been to busy as of late to get a few completed.
BUT, I saw, while on social media, a picture with the caption, 'a headache does not come from an aspirin deficiency'.
And it made me chuckle and I'll tell you why:
First and foremost, having symptoms or not having symptoms is NOT what defines you as healthy.
Just because a pill was taken and the pain was gone, DOES NOT mean that everything wrong is now over.
If I were suffering from a migraine, which if you know my past and what has led me to Structural Chiropractic care, and I took advil. the underlying cause IS STILL THERE. Surprising right?
Let's use an analogy:
If my house were on fire. What should I do first? CAll 911!!!
So then firefighters show up, run into the house and? And?
Take the batteries out of the fire alarm of course!! No more alarm, no more problem. DONE.
OF COURSE NOT! They take care of the REASON for the alarm in the first place.
Same goes for your body. Advil, ibuprofen, aspirin, tylenol, etc.. They take care of the messenger, not the reason for the message.
This is why I am so specific when dealing with members of my practice. I want to, need to know exactly what is going on with their spine to correct the actual fire. The shift leading to the symptoms.
Is this is you, it is time to get to the root cause. It is time to deal with the reason for the symptoms in the first place!
