Great Taste….and So Much More!


One of the best things you can do for your body is to feed it real, wholesome, nutritious foods.  If you can find locally grown organic products, even better.  The benefits of going organic include less pesticide contamination, higher nutrient content, no genetic modifications, no irradiation, more humane treatment of animals and respect for the land, and better taste.  Of all these health benefits, the only subjective one is taste.

So let’s say you are looking over some produce and you are deciding whether to go organic or stick with the conventional version.  If your primary concern is the health of you and your family, then it’s a no-brainer; go with the organic.  If, however, your decision is based solely on taste, it’s a toss up, as some report a distinct advantage to organic while others claim no taste difference between organic and conventional.

Here’s the point.  If you are making your purchasing decisions based entirely on taste, you are risking missing out on all the other healthy benefits of choosing organic.

When it comes to chiropractic and the health of your body, pain relief is like the organic taste test.

While most people are prompted to pursue chiropractic care as the result of pain or other symptoms, those who limit it to simple pain relief are cheating themselves of so much more.

The real impact of chiropractic lies in its ability to help the body heal and regulate itself from the inside out.  We know that life is housed within the central nervous system, and that spinal misalignments shut down life from the brain to the body.   Whethersubluxations are felt or not, the end result is the same: loss of nerve flow and compromised health.

Roughly 15-20% of the time these spinal imbalances result in pain.  Most of the time, however, they cause no symptoms and go undetected.  So if the majority of people who are subluxated, choking off nerve flow, and losing life from the brain down, base their decision to choose chiropractic solely on the way they feel, then they will most likely delay care, and their health will continue to decline. Organic is not just about taste, and chiropractic certainly isn’t only about pain relief.

While feeling great is desirable, the full scope of chiropractic’s benefits can only be realized beyond the initial relief phase of care.  Once you are feeling better, be sure to utilize chiropractic for ongoing health and wellness.  Pain relief, like great taste, is just the tip of the iceberg!
