Exercise has been proven to reduce heart disease and
cancer, improve circulation, increase energy, and even
improve brain function. For example, incidence of breast
cancer in women is 30% less likely if they exercise 3
hours per week. The incidence of breast cancer drops by
60% if they exercise just one hour more per week. Engage
in a regular exercise program to promote better health.
Studies show that we are not getting the nutrition we
need from the foods that we eat. For example, spinach
once contained 158 mg of iron per 100 g. Today it
contains only 2.2 mg of iron for the same serving.
Nutritionists strongly urge vitamin supplements and
organic, non-processed foods to ensure better health.
More than 2 billion prescriptions are written each year.
The pharmaceutical industry is a $49 billion industry,
causing 190,000 accidental deaths due to side effects
from prescription drugs. And 8.8 million
hospitalizations occur each year as a result of adverse
side effects to prescription drugs. Ask a lot of
questions before putting prescription drugs into your
system. What is the drug supposed to do? How does it
work? Are there potential side effects?
There are 50 million surgeries per year. Studies
revealed that 30% (15 million) of these operations are
unnecessary. Again, ask a lot of questions and always
seek an independent, second opinion before proceeding
Some healthcare practitioners believe that all
disease is caused by some emotional “dis-ease” (stress,
depression, low self esteem, anger, etc.) Consider
lifestyle or emotional changes as a way to promote
better health. Movement of the spine causes 90% of the
stimulation and nutrition to the brain. The brain gets
all of its information about the body through the
central nervous system. The central nervous system and
the life energy messages necessary to run the body’s
organs, tissues, and 75 trillion cells all pass through
the spinal cord. Spinal misalignments can cause a myriad
of problems, not the least of which is pain, discomfort,
and even reduced brain function. The invention of the
MRI machine revealed that 66% of people with disc bulges
and other spinal misalignments were unaware that they
had a problem.
The spine has 24 moveable segments that hold and
protect the spinal cord. Stress can cause asymmetric
tightening of the muscles, which can help pull joints out
of alignment. Life’s physical traumas, accidents,
improper bending, lifting, and even poor posture can all
contribute to misalignment of the spinal column. Just
as life’s physical and emotional pressures can cause
misalignment of the spine, there are practitioners who
can help correct or adjust these misalignments. If an
injury can push vertebrae out of alignment, it is
perfectly logical that a highly trained spinal expert
can “push” the vertebrae back into alignment.
