Today’s post is going to talk about Value.
Years ago we used to judge value on what we needed, and what was it worth. For instance, if I had eggs, and you had milk, we would trade commodities.
We soon found that things like “gold” had value. However hard to carry around in a pocket. So, we traded up the gold for paper money! The funny part now is that there’s alot of money circulating now, and where’s all the gold? Fort Knox? Maybe…. 🙂
Now comes banks who come along and make super confusing, with interest rates, credit, compounding interest, and a whole bunch of things to make it difficult to understand. Basically instead of money having a value anymore, its just a figure on a computer, with an interest rate attached. That’s how we’ve come to where we are today. No real value anymore, just numbers on paper. Basically this is a broken system.
Why is this so important?
YOUR HEALTH IS ALSO IN A BROKEN SYSTEM!
A system designed to be confusing. The health system that, in general, is not set up for you to be healthy. Think about the definition of Health.
Health – Extent of continuing physical, emotional, mental, and social ability to cope with one’s environment. Health is more than mere absence of disease, and there is a variable area between health and disease. Someone may appear healthy but have a serious condition (e.g., cancer) that is detectable only by physical examination or diagnostic tests or not even by these.
The Health system is this country is wired backward. You are considered healthy unless you are deathly sick, or suffering in some way. I think most people judge health on how a person looks or feels.
I think it’s best to think about health when your not in a physical state of sickness. For instance, I would rather someone make a decision to eat better and exercise when they are wanting to improve their health from their current status, not when they are obese. When someone comes a typical Chiropractic office who is advertising neck pain, or headache relief, they are making a decision to start care with that particular doctor or office because they have read somewhere that Chiropractic care could help with these secondary issues, or possibly that doctors marketing told them that their office could help. Unfortunately, these doctors are part of the problem, and not the solution to “health-care”. When your in an emotional state, (e.g., back pain) you make a decision based on this pain to start care with one of these offices.
I would tell you that your self sabotaging your health by only dealing with problems as they arise. See, there’s really only ONE major rule to remember when it comes to health care.
YOU MUST TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR OWN HEALTH !
Health is a slippery slope. You should strive for better health all the time. In my opinion, one of the best things you should do is keep every cell, tissue, and organ energized with the correct nerve supply. That means regular Chiropractic care for you and your family. You have to be pro-active with your health. YOU WILL PAY FOR YOUR HEALTH ONE WAY OR ANOTHER!
