ARE YOU MAKING HEALTH DEPOSITS OR WITHDRAWALS?
There is no doubt that the current state of the world’s economy is a mess — as is the state of our health. We are sicker than we’ve ever been, and it’s progressively getting worse. One thing required for a healthy economy is capital, the same runs true for the health of our bodies – we must have an abundance of “capital” to experience the quality of life we all deserve. We do this by making deposits into our “health savings account.”
At Keystone Chiropractic, we believe that the body’s natural, normal state is health. We believe in thriving, not just surviving. We know this state can only be approximated when we provide the body with the basic requirements of life.
If you were to notice a wilting plant, your first step likely would not be an attempt to label it with a named disease. Instead, the logical question is “What does this plant need that it may be missing?” and you would go through the list – water, sunlight, nutrient-rich soil, a free and clear area to grow, carbon dioxide. The same is true for the body — give it what it requires, repeat it consistently and for a long enough period of time, and you will thrive.
Every time you eat a healthy meal, get quality sleep, exercise, and make sure you have a clear brain-body communication – you’re making deposits into your health savings account. You’re increasing your overall health capital.
Just like in business, increasing your capital will allow you to expand your opportunities and your ability to affect the world. Our health capital allows us to perform, contribute, and handle any task life may deliver – willingly or unwillingly. This also allows us to make withdrawals from our savings account without the same detrimental effects it would have on those with less health capital.
Every time you take the actions to improve your health, you’re making deposits in your account. Every time you fail to give your body its key requirements, you’re making withdrawals from your account. You cannot continue to make withdrawals without eventually going into the red (heart disease, diabetes, cancer, pain, fatigue, mobility problems, and more).
Put another way, the way you treat your body has a cumulative effect; it’s not that your body suddenly breaks down one year, it’s been breaking down all along without you noticing. Health, just like wealth, cannot be created out of thin air.
