Chiropractic vs. Medicne: A Spiritual Perspective

Posted by Marietta chiropractor on November 12, 2008

Spirituality is one of those subjects that is sometimes difficult to talk about openly.  So many folks have so many different perspectives that it’s hard to have your message heard by your entire audience.  It gets even more difficult to discuss spirituality as it relates to health and healing.  The prvailing “wisdom” for a few centuries now is that spirituality and “scientific” medicine are two mutually exclusive subjects.

Nothing could be further from the truth.  I honeslty believe that your health is directly tied to how you view life in general and your health, specifically. In addition to your own perspective on health is that of your doctor.

Let me explain.  In our culture, we have seentially two schools of thought.  The one says, “We must identify, treat and prevent disease as early and aggressively, as possible.  And, those conditions we can’t prevent or cure, we must manage for the rest of a patient’s life.  The other perspective says, “You were designed to be healthy.  Your natural state is health.  The best way to fight and prevent dsease is to make sure your body fuctions at its highest potential at all times.”

Although some may consider these different perspectives as subtle, even non-existent, they’re not subtle, whatsoever!  They’re as different as “runing fro’re” and running to”.  You can only run from something that is chasing you until you finally collapse and succumb to the chase.  On the other hand, if you’re pursuing a goal or chasing a dream, you’ll move in that direction every opportunity you get.  And if you’re diligent enough, you’ll eventually get it!

Medical doctors are trained to diagnose and treat diseases and conditions.  When you go there, they’re looking for problems.  When you live in that realm, your focus is primarily on sickness, infirmity and disease. Even if you’re not sick, many folks find their doctor will make recommendations to prevent some dreaded event like stroke or cancer or osteoporosis.  What this ends up doing is to place you in the mode of running from something you don’t want to happen.  However, it keeps your mind focused on what you DON’T want to happen!  And, I believe that what you think about eventually comes about.

Chiropractors, generally, look for a source of interference in how your body works and tries to simply correct the problem.  When that happens, you express HEALTH not merely an absence of disease.  When that happens, you need fewer (or NO) drugs.  Your body resists colds, the flu and more serious ailments.  When you focus on health and stregth, you NATURALLY avoid many of the health problems millions of Americans end up running TO over their lifetime.

In closing, Iwant you to FOCUS on HEALTH not disease.  And, find a doctor and/or chiropractor that will help you do just that!
