CLA Update: Chiropractic Fallacy or Fact?

August 7, 2014

Throughout our lives, we’re taught to follow certain rules to maintain and optimize our health. Unfortunately, some of these rules are false and not in our best interests at all. Today, we’ll cover three surprising health fallacies.

1. We are often taught that germs are dirty and can cause illness. The truth is there are hundreds of trillions of germs that exist in our bodies at any given time. The strength of our immune systems is what determines whether these germs will become potentially dangerous. A germ can be compared to a plant seed in that it needs good “soil” in order to grow. Without a strong immune system, your body will feed harmful germs.

2. Drugs make us healthy. If drugs were the key to good health, the U.S. would be an extremely healthy country as we represent only 4.6 percent of the world’s population. Even though we consume 80 percent of opioids used worldwide, our country is ranked 34th in the world for health. This alone highlights the fact that drugs don’t necessarily make us any healthier.

3. You are healthy if you feel good. Despite feeling well, people suffer from massive heart attacks without any warning signs, see a doctor for an annual checkup and walk out with a diagnosis of cancer, and suffer from other conditions, such as high blood pressure high cholesterol and high blood sugar. Not all serious illnesses present symptoms right away. As a matter of fact, many illnesses may not have recognizable symptoms until they’ve been in the body long enough to cause significant damage.

The true key to a healthy body is to have a strong immune system, so you can stave off illness and disease. This can occur when your nerve system isn’t affected by interference that prevents the brain from sending vital messages to your body.

The bottom line in chiropractic care comes down to nerve interference — you’re always healthier without it. Chiropractic Lifecare of America can save you up to 50 percent on chiropractic care. Call 800.775.7900, or visit our website to learn more about our network of highly qualified doctors.
