The Importance of Balance

Since so many of us desire

increased health, energy and optimism in the new year, it is also the perfect time to reflect on the body's innate

intelligence, its ability to heal itself.


The transition from 2007 to 2008 represents a chance to reaffirm your commitment to your health - physical, mental and spiritual. The New Year presents an occasion to join the Wellness Revolution. This revolution grows out of an increasing acceptance of the connection between the mind, body and spirit; it is the cornerstone of the chiropractic lifestyle and of preventative health care. Every individual has the potential for optimal health, the power and personal responsibility to achieve it. Embrace your power and work to balance your life.

This wellness attitude is built upon four important concepts:

  1. The body has a built in healing force/intelligence that strives toward balance
  2. The body functions as a whole, not as a collection of individual parts
  3. The spine and nervous system play a key role in health
  4. Physical, emotional, environmental and chemical factors can affect health

Chiropractic can help you. Chiropractors work to correct vertebral subluxations, dysfunctional areas of the spine that impede health. They always emphasize prevention - a philosophy that harnesses the natural human capacity to heal.

Chiropractic for Life encourages you to go back to basics; we encourage all our patients to maintain regular chiropractic adjustments, exercise regularly, eat well, smile often and stay positive. It really is this simple. Dr. Barbara Smith pays special attention to the mind, body and spirit connection and is dedicated to empowering her patients to find this perspective, to achieve balance and their full health potential.

'Tis the season to reflect so take a moment for yourself. Reflect on what it will take for you to achieve this health potential. Chances are it will require less work than you think.

Embrace balance! Embrace a healthy lifestyle!
