Thank God for Sickness

Thank God for Sickness

The human body is an impressive, complex, and beautiful machine. Did you know that nerve impulses travel to and from the brain at speeds of up to 250 miles per hour? That’s faster than the top speed of an Indy 500 race car.

Did you know that a mother’s body will actually change the composition of her breast milk based on the health needs of the feeding child? It literally tailors the chemical composition, antibodies, and nutrients, to the exact ratios needed in order to support the health of the growing baby.

Did you know that the average American has a heart rate of 80 beats per minute? By 30 years old, your heart has beat around 1,261,440,000 (that’s billion) times, and runs 24/7 without fail – what other machine do you know of that can sustain such use?

And the body is so intelligent, that it knows you won’t change your life if you’re comfortable… let’s think about what this implies… If we didn’t get sick, we would die without warning. Thank God for sickness. When our bodies start to experience common symptoms like headaches, inflammation, or hypertension, our culture and society has learned to “take a pill” and make the symptoms go away. We can choose to live this lifestyle, masking our aches and pains, OR we can get to the root of the problem. Choosing to listen to the genius design of our amazing bodies is  the greatest difference between HEALTHCARE and WELLNESS.  .

Stillpoint Family Chiropractic would like to invite you to be deliberate with your choices. We encourage you to treat your body with respect, and challenge you to allow the “pains” of change to be what lead you to a richer and fuller life. Your body’s brilliance is not to be taken for granted, and when your body stops giving you signals, that’s when you need to worry. So today, choose say “thank you” to your body for working so hard for you, even when you aren’t working hard for your body.

Yours in Health,
