What is Health?

In today’s world there is no longer any room for ineffective treatments and out-dated models of patient care. The public is demanding that doctors actually know how to fix their health problem, not just cover up symptoms with drugs and surgery. If the check engine light comes on in your car, are you the kind of person who wants to know what is causing that problem? Or do you want ignore the problem, turn off the light, and hope you can get a little further down the road? Red Mountain Natural Medicine is dedicated to serving those who want to know what the problem is and how to fix it.

But before we can experience health, we have to understand what it is we mean when we talk about health. Is health the absence of pain and symptoms? Or is it the presence of something else? Does the human body need drugs and surgery to be healthy? Or should the human body be treated with holistic and preventative care to promote health?

While those are big questions, I believe that chiropractic care and nutrition can help find an answer. I believe that chiropractic care and natural medicine are the keys to unlocking your body’s potential. Think of your dream home. Now imagine it has caught fire. Do you call the architect or carpenter? No, you call the fire department because that is an emergency. It is the same with your body. If you find yourself in a health emergency, you need to go to the hospital, to the emergency room. But lets say your dream home didn’t catch fire, it just hasn’t been taken care of and maintained properly. Now it has a cracked foundation, some walls and door frames are not square, and a little water leaks in during rain storms. You wouldn’t call fire fighters, or emergency personnel, because they don’t have the tools to fix this type of problem. You would turn to experts, like architects and carpenters, who are trained at restoring structure and function.

Now it is the same when we talk about chiropractic, nutrition and health. A chiropractor is to you what an architect or carpenter is to your house. You can live in a run down house, but would anyone recommend it? You can also live with spinal misalignments and nutritional deficiencies, but would anyone recommend that? Now consider the human body, its a little more complicated than a house. And if structure is important for your house, imagine how important it is for your health! Proper alignment of the skull and spine allows for proper functioning of the nervous system, which in turn increases health across a broad spectrum. Chiropractors use their hands and simple tools to move bones and tissues back into proper alignment. We don’t use drugs, and we don’t use surgery. Your body knows how to heal itself, and we respect and understand that.

Health is really a direction. Everything we eat, drink, think, and do affects our health. Red Mountain Natural Medicine helps people of all ages, from all walks of life, to deal with the challenges we all face living day to day. Its all about your quality of life, and with chiropractic, you receive care that enhances your overall well-being.

Yours in Health,
Dr. Andrew
