Wellness Chiropractic

Dr. Moore is often asked, “I thought that when I get adjusted, I am not supposed to get sick anymore, but I still get a cold every winter. Why?”

Child on a playground

The answer: Wellness chiropractic is based on the fact that by being adjusted regularly patients will experience amazing health… and that is the truth!

However, sometimes the body, according the Principle of Limitation of Matter, has other ideas! When a child gets the flu, for example, the nose is running, they are coughing, they have fever, the eyes are swollen and glassy, they have loss of appetite, they are lethargic and not feeling well at all, they feel weak, have lost their spark, etc. and parents have been conditioned and well-taught to believe that their child is sick!

Yes! This is sickness at its best.

But… I have news for you; all those symptoms have an amazing reason for being. They are not random. The nose runs to excrete the virus, for instance. The child may have diarrhea to further excrete the bug. They have fever which is the result of extra work produced by the body as defense mechanisms are brought online to fight the invading organism, and of course, all that extra work produces extra heat – we call this fever.

Simple!

The lacrimal glands produce continuous tears to cool down the cornea so the heat sensitive protein make-up is not damaged – the child looks glassy eyed. There is not appetite – the body shuts down digestive cycles and shunts all energy to defense. All these activities are designed for one purpose only – to restore health and remove the invading organism. That puts this whole “sickness thing” in a very different light. It means that all these things are not random effects that need to be treated.

It does not mean that this child is “sick”!

No, it means that the body is doing exactly what it was designed and programmed to do. This is not an example of “sickness.” This is an example of health! It is what should happen and it is exactly what was designed to happen!

Okay… it may not be pleasant – your child may not like it, but it is an expression of health!

There is an innate intelligence ruling your body and ultimately that innate force knows what is best for that body at that time. It also knows that all body systems need to be exercised regularly in order to function at their optimum levels at all times – that is the expectation isn’t it? Just like any other part of the body, the immune system also needs to be exercised.

I personally feel we have a built in “clock” which activates the immune system, temporarily lowers our immune guard and we are then attacked by a bug of some sort. The response is a sudden activation of the immune system to fight off the invading organism.

Here is what you need to understand: this is not sickness!!! It is an expression of health – the body doing exactly what it is programmed and designed to do. This is a good thing! Having the occasional cold or flu is a very important part of keeping healthy – your body will not be at its best without it.
