Most people visit the chiropractor when there is a serious problem with their body after an accident. Experts are urging people to consider visiting the chiropractor in many other cases as well.
Some people suffer from chronic pain in the muscles and joints. When nothing else helps and painkillers have to be taken constantly, many would want to save themselves the side effects of pills. Misalignments in the skeletal structure can lead to muscle pains. A chiropractor will align the body in a way in which it performs optimally without tiring certain joints and muscle groups.
People who live a very sedentary lifestyle could benefit from a visit to the chiropractor. Hunched over a keyboard or a phone, too much pressure is placed on the shoulders and the upper back. A chiropractor will make sure that the spine is aligned correctly so any pain can subside.
People with pain in the lower legs and weakness could have a pinched nerve in the spine. If traditional therapy does not work, a chiropractor can fix this problem by shifting the weight off of the pinched nerve.
Frequent migraines and headaches can have many causes behind it, but misalignments of the neck and the back is also a common cause. Aligning the upper back and the neck joints reduced the episodes and intensity of headaches.
People who are extremely active are more susceptible to traumas and misalignments in the body. Exercises and especially sports can exert additional pressure on the skeletal and muscular structures. If the spine misaligns in such activities, pinched nerves, shifted disks, and other ailments are common. Visiting the chiropractor regularly will ensure that any arising problems are taken care of early on.
A visit to the chiropractor is not something done only as a treatment – it is a great preventive measure for future problems with nerves, bones, joints, and muscles.
Humans love the mystery, stress, and intrigue that accompanies the drama we create in our lives. Drama is an energy-draining, time-sucking, distraction that turns our thoughts away from our dreams. And drama has a sneaky side. It plants seeds of resentment and elements of doubt in our lives, and we exacerbate those elements by focusing on the drama as it fights for its own survival. Drama has a way of turning a slight inconvenience into a catastrophic issue, and we get caught in the turmoil of those exaggerations. Dramatic exaggerations take on a life of their own. And we believe we are victims of that life, but we are actually the creators of it.
There is no medical pill or surgical operation that will stop us from creating drama in our lives. We can’t ask for help from friends because friends are usually part of the drama we create. No one is sure why they want to take part in stressful interactions. But we all, regardless of social and cultural differences, create some kind of drama in order to experience it. But one serious dramatic incident after another is enough for anyone to throw their hands up and cry, uncle. There is a way to eliminate drama, and the ancient holistic sages call it, “practicing simplicity.”
Practicing simplicity is the holistic approach to stopping the drama in our lives. Being simplistic means letting go of everything we don’t need in our lives. Simplicity takes the big issues we face and breaks them down into manageable steps. Those steps strengthen our confidence, and they produce a sense of accomplishment.
Simplicity starts in our imagination. When we develop the idea that we can accept all challenges as experiences we want to feel physically, the drama within those challenges dissipates. We begin to understand that we create drama for the experience. And when we accept and allow those self-created experiences to play out without giving them emotional strength, we discover there is simplicity in all our thoughts. We just have to cultivate it.
More people in the Western world are doing what the Eastern world has done for thousands of years when it comes to healthcare. Westerners are taking responsibility for their health in the 21st-century. More people are looking for treatment options. Healthcare providers know they will have to incorporate a more holistic approach to healing if they want to be important, according to Julie Bietsch, the vice president of population health management at Dignity Health. Bietsch thinks healthcare providers will transform case management in the future. And Mission Health Partners Dr. Robert Fields, as well as the chief medical officer of AthenaHealth, Kevin Ban, agreed with her. According to Bietsch, care management will be more holistic, as well as interpersonal, and that care will extend beyond hospital walls.
Eastern medicine is all about the interpersonal approach as well as a holistic approach to herbs and other plants that give sick people in Asia a new lease on life. People in the Western world are just discovering some of the benefits of cannabidiol oil, better known as CBD oil, to treat several health issues. And according to Chinese medical notes that date back to 2737 B.C., marijuana is a wonder treatment for gout, malaria, rheumatism, and absentmindedness, and 100 other ailments. More than 2,800 years later, a Chinese doctor was the first to use marijuana as an anesthetic. That doctor was using the CBD oil in hemp, and he mixed it with wine for internal and external use, according to his notes.
But by the time Bietsch and the medical professionals tip the healthcare mentality scale, there will be other uses for plants that provide a health service to humans. Plus other treatments like acupuncture and moxibustion will be part of healthcare for certain health issues. Moxibustion is the mugwort that burns close to the skin in the shape of a cigar, and the cigar provides a concentrated heat source after acupuncture.
