Dr Brad here and I am a Burlington, Ontario chiropractor at Life Chiropractic Centre.
Over the past few weeks we have learned about the 2 and very different schools of thought regarding health and health care.
And we also explored the truth about symptoms.
If you are still undecided regarding how you want to manage your health and your children’s health, here are a few facts that you may want to consider.
Heart disease kills about 40,000 Canadians every year. Cancer claims 75,000 lives every year in Canada. Forty thousand Canadians die every year due to adverse drug reactions in the hospital setting and another 40,000 die every year due to adverse drug reactions outside of the hospital setting. So drug reactions claim more lives than both heart disease and cancer. But some experts claim that this statistic is grossly under-reported and there are actually a lot more drug-related casualties. But this is not a surprise because some people do not want you to know certain things.
According to Harvard University, here are the top 7 most dangerous drugs; sleeping pills, cholesterol drugs, blood pressure drugs, Alzheimer’s drugs, arthritis drugs ( including over-the-counter NSAID’s), diabetes drugs and chemotherapy. Just be aware in case you take any of these.
It is important to understand that drugs do not move you towards health. They may be necessary if you have an emergency or you are in a health crisis, but they are not health care. The same thing goes for surgery. Surgery does not move you towards health. It may be necessary if you have an emergency or a health crisis, but it is not health care. Think back when we talked about ‘adding’ and ‘subtracting’. Did this concept really make sense to you?
It is scientific fact that your nerve system (brain, spinal cord and nerves) control every cell, tissue, gland, organ, and muscle in your body. And you don’t even have to think about it. In order for your heart to beat, your lungs to breathe, your stomach to digest your food, your liver to filter your blood, your pancreas to regulate your blood sugar, and even for you to comprehend what you are reading right now, one thing has to happen.
And that one thing is your brain – through your spinal cord and nerves – has to effectively communicate with the rest of your body. This also includes your immune system which by the way, has the capacity to kill off every dangerous pathogen known to man including cancer.
And in order for your brain to effectively communicate with the rest of your body, it is imperative that you have minimal subluxations (spinal misalignments), minimal spinal degenerative arthritis and optimal posture. And as a chiropractor and posture expert, this is what I can offer you.
So, I am going to leave you with one question, and that is: where is your faith going to lie? In a pill bottle, a scalpel, a syringe? Or in the human body – your own body – which is by far the most intelligent creation on this planet.
