The Chiropractic Principle of Optimum Health for a Lifetime
The bigness of Chiropractic is that our philosophy and principles are seeding a new paradigm for life, health, healing, and well-being. It is a paradigm that, in time, MaxLiving Chiropractors will work to make a standard of effective healthcare, as they are already doing in their communities. Emergency, life-saving medicine will always be necessary and a salvation to all those who need this service.
However, the next step to seeking and achieving true health that Chiropractic seeks to take is in the standardization of proactive rather than reactive care. Chiropractic wishes to support the healing process, addressing causes rather than treating symptoms and assisting the body in healing instead of treating disease.
As BJ Palmer, the Developer of Chiropractic, wrote, “Medicine studies disease and what causes a man to die, Chiropractic studies health and what causes a man to live.”
Our mission in Maxliving is to reach the unreached, to tell the truth, to be the voice of hope, and to change the way families view and manage their health. We wish to help families live at their Optimum Health Potential, free of pain, dysfunction, and disease.
We do this because we have a vision for a healthy future.
You were not intended to be sick, in pain, and constantly limited by your health. You were meant for health, you were designed to be healthy, and your body knows how to heal.
Innate Health: True Health Comes From The Inside
Health does not come from outside, it comes from within.
At MaxLiving, our vision is to empower families to live a healthy life, naturally. As a patient of Maxliving, you are a part of that mission, you are a part of that vision, and you are a part of the culture of true health.
To be truly healthy and live a life free of unnecessary suffering, the most important thing you must understand is the principle of health. This principle is why I do what I do, why I get up early every day, why I train, and why I am so invested in the health of you and your family!
Innate Health and Principled Chiropractic Care
That Principle of Chiropractic is simple. It states that your body is self-regulating, self-healing and you have an amazing power within you to heal and be healthy, called Innate Intelligence. Here at MaxLiving, this is what we call the power of Innate Health. It’s what allows your cells to regenerate without conscious thought, and your body to digest and fuel itself properly without outside instruction.
If you are not functioning and healing at your full potential, it is because there is interference to that healing power. Your brain communicates 100% health and healing to your body every second of every day for your entire life. This is where chiropractic empowers your innate health, it helps remove the interference so you can live to your fullest potential.
Chiropractic and Your Nervous System
That healing power is communicated to your body and back to the brain again through your nervous system. It is your nervous system that regulates the function and health of your body and your body will heal itself from the inside every single time.
Understanding and trusting this principle of innate health will change the way you view and manage your health forever. Knowing that the state of your health is not determined solely by your genetics, family history, or bad luck can free you to take control of your own health.
Your health is dictated by whether or not you are allowing that innate healing power to be released in the body, so your body heals itself.
How Can Subluxation Affect Your Innate Health
In Chiropractic, that is why we believe subluxation is could be dangerous. Subluxation, otherwise known as misalignment of your spine, may interfere with communication in the nervous system, which may interfere with your body’s ability to function and regulate health.
In order to embrace our innate health, we must take care of ourselves by doing something positive for our own well-being and physiology consistently throughout our lives.
To accept your body’s innate health is to acknowledge the amazing innate ability to heal that resides in our bodies. It is to be able to trust the inner wisdom of our bodies in guiding us, healing us, and sustaining us in health and in sickness.
The bigness of Chiropractic is the realization that we may not need to look outside of ourselves to find health. Instead, it is about looking inward, and doing all that you can to support your body’s natural abilities.
Innate Health and the Chiropractic Experience
When you read and study anatomy, physiology, pathology, and biochemistry as a Chiropractor does, you are able to recognize the ingenious design of our bodies. We are truthfully the most complex and intuitive inventions in the world. Our hearts pump, our lungs breathe, our cells convert oxygen into fuel, our bodies know how to cleanse us of toxins and retain healthy vitamins and minerals, turning them into the fuel that makes us function, and it does all of that without us telling it to!
The bigness of Chiropractic is expressed through the chiropractic adjustment, working to reduce and remove interference so that the amazing innate health of the body is able to fully express itself in the healing and regulation of your body. It is a commitment to a higher level of health to improve function and move toward a state of optimal health.
What Makes MaxLiving Chiropractors Are Different
At MaxLiving, our Chiropractors help their patients achieve true health because we help our patients utilize all 5 Essentials® of true health to help remove inhibitions to your natural wellness and support functioning at your optimum potential.
The key to Chiropractic assisting in your journey to true health is our method of focusing on finding and correcting the underlying cause of your symptoms, whether they be migraines, back pain, stress, or nearly anything else you can imagine interfering with your health. One of the biggest causes of interference in your health is subluxation. Our number one focus with Chiropractic and adjustments is to reduce and correct subluxation (realign your spine in its natural position) so you can have the highest expression of natural health possible.
This spinal alignment is supported with the other Essential health principles of MaxLiving: Nutrition, Mindset, Oxygen and Exercise, and Minimizing Toxins. By implementing these principles of health, you can minimize interference in your health and your body’s natural ability and promote long-lasting health.
Once you are well, it is about staying well for a lifetime! Chiropractic isn’t like flash diets or extreme exercise programs; it’s about making steady, permanent changes to the way you eat, think, treat your body, and interact with the world around you. In doing this, you create true health habits that you can commit to for life!
