Choose Health in 2014

Happy New Year! It’s a wonderful time to ponder the possibilities for 2014. For our practice members, a new year confirms and refreshes an ongoing commitment to making healthy choices for the mind and body throughout the year. Health won’t happen by chance. Simply stated, health is a choice.

As principled chiropractors, we want to help the Gunnison community move past health issues, turn away from over medicating, and provide the opportunity for folks to transcend feeling “okay” by taking steps to feel fantastic! If you are ready to make health an intentional choice by committing to a proven process, we are here to partner with you on your journey.

Let’s face it, life can be stressful. Between work, family, commitments and finances - stress is bound to be part of the equation. One of the most important choices you can make in 2014 is to keep stress in check. Stress contributes to spinal subluxation - which leads to illness. Subluxation refers to the mechanical compression and irritation to the joints of the spine and nerves. Among other factors, subluxations are caused by trauma, poor posture, or increased chemical and emotional stresses. Stress can absolutely trigger a host of problems in the body. A regular visit to Sims Chiropractic can help.

Our practice members know that maintaining corrective care throughout the year is important for feeling their best. Why? Regular chiropractic adjustments normalize spinal nerve flow to proper resting levels. This is very important to the healing process. It’s a natural way to ward off the negative impact of stress on your system.

Subluxations manifest as physical stress on the mechanics of the body. They increase the sympathetic tone, and cause the body to re-route its energy toward the fight or flight system. (You know, the adrenaline-rush that comes from anger or fear? That is a physical symptom that your fight or flight system is taking over...) Ongoing chiropractic care can minimize this response.

With regular visits, practice members ward off the degenerative effects of spinal subluxations. Without ongoing adjustments, subluxations may lead to osteoarthritis and overworked adrenal glands, lowered immunity, decreased digestive functions, fatigue and blood pressure disturbances (among others). These are all solid reasons that practice members visit us regularly.

A new year is a great time to commit to improved health. In 2014, the best gift for you and your loved ones is to maintain optimal body structure. Taking proper care of your body helps extend longevity and enables you to fully enjoy your blessings and life.

As you consider your goals for 2014, remember that health is a choice. If you take care of your body’s structure, you’ll have more endurance for the workouts, more bandwidth for the work and family commitments, and more zeal to counteract your stress… Better alignment leads to better health. You’ll see the rewards in everything you do.
