“Take two ibuprofen every 4-6 hours and apply heat and that should take care of it.” Does this sound familiar at all? Yeah, I thought so.
If you’re like most Americans, you’ve likely been told something along these lines as you went in to see your general physician at some point in your life. Usually followed by you saying to yourself, “thank goodness my doctor knows what to do to fix this,” and, “thankfully it isn’t anything worse.”
This thought is exactly what is keeping you from reaching your true health potential. We have been indoctrinated in the idea that health comes from outside the body, and that it is the doctor’s job to restore your health. This is where doctors, all doctors, have failed their patients. The number one thing preventing you from restoring your health is not taking responsibility for your own health in the first place.
To be a real doctor, of any health discipline, is to teach you how to be responsible for your own welfare within their own discipline. When you become actively engaged in health promoting habits and doing things at home on a daily basis, you will be liberated from the suffocation of relying on a doctor to “give you” your health back.
At Intero Chiropractic, we recognize that your body is intelligent and is always striving for health. We cannot possibly improve on the perfection that is the wisdom that created your body from just two cells. That wisdom is, however, limited by the materials it has to work with (your structure), as your body is constantly being bombarded by chemical, physical and emotional stressors. Our goal is to provide a practical solution where we can reach your health goals together which consists of you doing certain things on a daily basis so that you can be the true champion or your health.
