True health is when your body works as it was designed to do.
Most people think that how they feel is an indicator of how healthy they are. It simply is not true. Consider the person who wakes up feeling great in the morning and by late afternoon has had a heart attack and died – were they healthy? Of course not. Just because they lacked symptoms and felt great did not equal health.
Let’s say you unknowingly eat some spoiled food. Later you get stomach cramps and vomit. You certainly don’t feel well, but thankfully your body is functioning correctly. Imagine the tragic consequences of taking a drug to calm your stomach, retaining the toxic food!

Vomiting, sneezing, coughing and even fevers may actually be signs that your body is working correctly: the definition of true health!
Your brain, spinal cord and all of your nerves control and regulate your body. Every cell, tissue, organ and system (even your immune system!) take orders from your nervous system.
Thus, true health is how well your nervous system is orchestrating the workings of your body. Compromised brain-to-body or body-to-brain communications could be the underlying cause of a variety of health problems.
Many people with a spinal problem discover that other health problems resolve while under chiropractic care. Reducing nervous system disturbances along the spine has been shown to produce positive changes throughout the body.
