Are we Healthy?•40th in general health for males•32nd in general health for females•1.5 million people with iatrogenic (inadvertent adverse) diseases•400,000 people/yr die from misuse, overuse or abuse of their medications.Health is not a lack of a certain medicationHealth is not merely the absence of symptoms or the case of “feeling good”Health cannot be put into a capsule, bottled up, and sold to consumersHealth is not something we should only think about when we “are not feeling good”
  3. 3. So What is Health?Health is a state of complete physical, mental and socialwell-being and not merely the absence of disease orinfirmity.

  6. 6. How do we CORRECT it?•Time and Repetition are KEY for correction.•To correct the cause we will lay out a care planspecific for each case to remove subluxations.• This plan will allow for the nervous system tostart functioning properly leading to improvedhealth and wellness.Healing takes place fromAbove-Down and Inside-Out.It happens no other way!A Chiropractor looks for the direct cause(subluxation) in the body and works to correctthem without the use of medications or surgery.
