The Road of Life – EC4 London Chiropractor

This article of my blog is dedicated to my dear friend, Dr. Gretchen Miller, Chiropractor, Pamplona Spain. The world’s healing energy is coming your way….

Life is certainly interesting….at least mine is! Just when you think you have it all figured out, unexpected things arise. More often than desired, most of us have had expectations and life plans suddenly change. I’m not speaking strictly about life but ideas, wants, desires, dreams, jobs, friends, partners, family situations…just about anything you can and cannot imagine may be thrown your way.

Some people say that this calls for a ‘plan B’ at all times, but I disagree. Having a ‘plan B’ seems to give you an option for failure, or ‘second best’. Plan B’s or second best may not always be bad alternatives and may just lead you to where you are meant to be but they should never be considered ‘plan B’s’ in the first place.

When life introduces unexpected twists and turns one should look at them as opportunities and not losses. Change or unexpected events literally open doors to growth while closing doors to habits or ways of being that may be in need of transformation.

Being adaptable is the key to creating a positive outcome to life’s next punch, not the ‘plan B’. There are many avenues to life and they all lead in diverse directions. Most of the roads in life are good just not planned for. Many may also be bad or produce negative outcomes. It is not which road you take but how you enjoy the journey. Ups and downs are part of the road. Being connected intuitively, physically, mentally and spiritually are paramount to keeping you on the best roads of life.

SO, how does this relate to chiropractic? Can chiropractic keep me on the good roads?

Chiropractic is about connecting the body so you can be as adaptable as possible on all fronts; physically, chemically and emotionally. Chiropractic along with a life based on respect for universal principles, integrity and nature, point you in the direction of a healthy, happy life.

Life poses obstacles on our many journeys. These obstacles appear in the body in the form of three types of stress; physical, chemical and emotional. When the control system of your body or nerve system is out of sync, then you cannot coordinate physical, chemical and emotional processes. This means you cannot react or adapt to life’s unexpected turns. This may lead to a bumpy ride on your life’s journey.

The brain and spine cannot do its job if nerve flow is pinched by misaligned bones in the spine. If your spine is restricted, out of alignment, locked up and not moving in a normal manner, then vital messages which tell your body how to work are not relayed properly.

So, what happens? How does this impact you, your life, your health, your choices, your future, your family’s future?

Research has shown that just a small amount of pressure, equivalent to the weight of a dime or a five pence piece, impairs nerve flow and decreases electrical transmissions through a nerve root by up to 50% (Dr. Chung Ha Suh, Ph.D, University of Colorado). This means that your body on a physical level is not responding to life’s punches as best it can. It means that you don’t connect or adapt to life as efficiently, leading to a life journey which may not be as happy, fun, healthy, and enjoyable for you and those around you. It could also mean that  ‘plan Bs’ don’t come so easily. It may mean that you struggle to adapt on all fronts; physical, chemical and emotional. It means your body works in an ineffcient state. You cannot navigate down the avenues of life with ease. It means you can’t ‘enjoy the journey because your body is struggling to find balance and coordination.

SO, what’s the solution?

Get your life on the right path by paying attention to the five aspects to health which are proper diet, exercise, rest, a positive mental attitude and a properly functioning nervous system (i.e. a spine that is free of blockages and blocked nerve flow).

Is chiropractic the key? Yes and no. Yes, it a vital ingredient but no, it is not the only ingredient. You need all five health components and even then life’s roads still pose precarious twists and turns. But hey, that is what interesting about life. Adding the chiropractic ingredient can smooth out the bumps on the road by enhancing the connections which control and handle your life’s journey. If there is a sudden turn, you can ease into it with more finesse, less struggle and adapt more efficiently.

Are you prepared for the ride of your life? Get connected with chiropractic and get ready for an amazing journey! Zooooooom!
