BELIEVE IN WELLNESS By Brett Penager 

“Belief consists in accepting the affirmations of the soul; Unbelief, in denying them.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson 

Paradigm: an example that serves as a pattern or model for something, especially one that forms the basis of a methodology or theory. 

Only 116 years young, chiropractic as a healing art is well known as the best-kept health secret on the planet. Within the chiropractic profession, patients are experiencing seeming miracles on a daily basis without any drugs or surgery.

However, less than 10% of the population is under care or understands the possible benefits of it. The irony of the current paradigm of chiropractic being primarily for neck and back pain; is that those who have come for those symptoms alone have experienced so many other benefits.

Like you perhaps, most come to us as a last hope, others to alleviate their pain and suffering, some to be proactive in their health and wellness, many are invited by a concerned friend, colleague or family member; regardless of what brought them here, the results speak for themselves. 

Ask Jeremy Hayes who was told by his medical doctor to, “get his affairs in order”, when in his early 20’s because there was no known cure or diagnosis to his seemingly terminal ‘unknown’ illness. Until by chance, a college professor told him to try chiropractic. He did, and today is alive, healthy and a husband and father of three beautiful boys…and he is a chiropractor. 

Ask Mark Lagerkvist who was an elite athlete and Olympic hopeful swimmer that mysteriously couldn’t use his left arm anymore. After every diagnosis possible from the best medicine had to offer, there was no known reason as to why. Beset with depression, borderline alcoholism and drug addiction, he considered taking his life. As a last hope, he was referred to a chiropractor. He got adjusted and in short order the sensation returned to his formerly powerful; now useless arm. He not only got his strength back, but his life. 

Ask Gilles LaMarche who was a Canadian track star and professional wunderkind. Like King Midas, everything he touched turned to gold; until his health turned to dust. Diagnosed with a terminal disease, he was given three months to live. In every documented case the disease had always prevailed. A chiropractor to thousands; he practiced what he preached, got adjusted, and to the amazement of medical science, the disease lost its first battle. Today he is one of the pre-eminent leaders in the world. 

As an organization, we serve our purpose here on earth through our vision and mission: Our vision is – ‘That every human being discovers their full potential’ Our mission is being – ‘Leaders in developing extraordinary wellness for families and individuals by taking a stand for the well being of our communities through education and service.’ 

The power that made the body heals the body. It doesn’t happen any other way. No matter what name it goes by; Innate Intelligence, God, Mother Nature, Chi, etc., no human being on earth can duplicate it. The chiropractic adjustment removes any interference (a.k.a. subluxations) that may be hindering this power and allows it to fully express itself through our nervous system within our bodies. Some call the effects miraculous; we call it normal. 

It doesn’t take a lot to believe in wellness when you see what the opposite looks like. Conditions like; migraine headaches, debilitating neck and back pain, ulcers, fibromyalgia, etc. Especially when you see, as we do in our clinics daily, the alleviation of many of the symptoms that comes with these ailments; as a result of the chiropractic adjustment. If given the choice between sickness and disease or extraordinary health and wellness, which would you choose? An easy choice isn’t it. 

Believe in the Power that made you; believe in your greatness; and ultimately believe in wellness.
