How do you define wellness? Is it merely the absence of disease or any condition that affects your health, or is it something more?
Wellness is a proactive approach to optimum health, not a reaction to an obvious ache or pain.
The National Wellness Association defines wellness as “an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a more successful existence.”
This is a shift away from looking at wellness as merely the absence of disease, injury or symptoms. True health involves the whole person not only physical but also including our social, emotional and spiritual dimensions. In his book, The Wellness Revolution, economist Paul Zane Pilzer predicts that wellness is becoming a major movement in health care. Instead of seeking care in reaction to a disease or condition, more and more of us are choosing to proactively safeguard our health (as in preventative dentistry).
Wellness care is about making choices that help us to achieve our highest potential and ensure that our bodies are functioning at its most optimal level.
Chiropractors are leading the wellness revolution because of our focus on maximizing the integrity of the nervous system, the underpinning of true health. By reducing subluxations that distort our ability to adapt to our environments, we each have a better foundation on which to enhance our health – physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
Those who want to be the best they can be are incorporating chiropractic care into their lives. Many professional sportsmen and women are getting chiropractic care to stay in peak condition physically and mentally, since the nervous system is the powerhouse of the body. Chiropractic, along with other healthy choices can help anyone who wants to live life to the fullest.
