What we must remember is that 85% of the iceberg can’t be seen from the surface.
The same can be said for our health.
If disease and poor health were an iceberg, all that we’d be able to see of it would be the very tip. That’s where we experience the pain, the symptoms. And that’s, generally, what conventional methods attempt to treat with drugs and surgery.
But what about the rest of the iceberg? What about all the stuff that lies beneath the surface?
That’s the stuff that’s causing all the symptoms. Drugs and surgery put a Band-Aid on the problem (albeit, a very necessary Band-Aid at times), but they never really get around to addressing the root cause.
Chiropractic, of course, works to address the cause of disease. Through removing nerve interference, the body is able to start the task of healing itself... of regulating its hormones, balancing its irregularities, and strengthening its immune system.
However, a lot of people, and a lot of chiropractors, use chiropractic just as they would conventional medicine. They use it to get rid of the symptom. Then they feel better, and move on.
The problem with this approach is that it doesn’t address of the rest of the iceberg. Chopping off the tip of the iceberg doesn’t make the rest of it go away. Just because you're not experiencing symptoms yet doesn't mean disease is not building.
More often than not, they’ll find themselves experiencing the same symptoms all over again down the road.
And the body is constantly facing stresses every day - emotional, physical, and chemical - to heal from. In a perfect world, we wouldn’t have any of these stresses to deal with. But we do.
That’s the reason Mind & Body Chiropractic makes it easy and affordable to get adjusted on a regular basis. Chiropractic is a necessary element in tackling the iceberg of poor health and disease.
