Anyone who's seen the movie Titanic knows what can happen when we blindly forge ahead, unaware of dangers lurking beneath the surface. Because the priority was getting ahead quickly instead of being fully aware of the environment, warnings were missed and disaster struck.
How often this happens with our bodies as well. We've been taught to just focus on symptoms to determine whether we're "sick" or "healthy." Yet, by the time symptoms show up the ship's already sinking. Do we really want to wait that long?
Subluxations, spinal misalignment and nerve interference, are rarely painful. By the time symptoms actually show up (if they do at all), damage to the spine and its structures have often occurred, and the body has been operating with less than normal nerve supply.
Why wait for symptoms to occur? Taking an active approach to good health means doing what it takes to keep your body at its best. A healthy diet, regular exercise, plenty of rest, a positive mental attitude, etc., all help steer us clear of the icebergs of ill health. Regular adjustments also keep us on the right course by helping your body to work at its maximum potential.
