Today is the day after Memorial Day... a day of respect, remembrance, and realization of the importance of standing up for something bigger than ourselves.
Let's be honest... that's why you want to take control and independence of your health and avoid control of big pHARMa, that's why you started a family and choose to raise those children with your family values, that's the reason why you choose not to wear a mask during the plandemic and refused the poison dart...
It was a chance to voice your opinion, values, beliefs, etc... regardless of the opposition fighting to destroy it.
As I thought this Memorial Day I wonder if every soldier that fought for our life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness really understands how much their effort and sacrifice is valued?
I know, for me, this country has given me and my family an opportunity that no other place in this world could.
It is the courage and sacrifices of our fallen heroes that have preserved the American Dream, ensuring that we can live life on our own terms, have the liberties that we often take for granted, and pursue happiness and chase our own ambitions.
They have fought on foreign soil, away from their families, enduring unimaginable hardships, all to ensure that we can continue to thrive in this great country built on hope and possibilities.
To think that in 2019 the same country who lets freedom ring, is the home of the brave, and land of the free would declare war... not on foreign soil, not with a foreign nation, not with foreign people...
But it's own.
And the best way to keep honoring those who lost their lives for this great country is to KEEP FIGHTING.
All the talk is Exhausting and Frustrating when its NOT backed by CONSISTENT ACTION.
Distraction is the enemy of focus.
I get it, life happens, it's always easier "said than done"... and people get upset at NOT getting to where they want to be on their goals....
There is always an underlying cause...
a lack of consistent action!
I want you to get more out of your health, more out of life, and more out of any area in life you are working on.
But don't just be a talker... be a doer. And stay consistent.
Choose the area you want to focus on... then... show up... do the work... and the needle will move.
The exhaustion and frustration comes when...
You don't hit the goals.
You feel behind.
You've been procrastinating.
You've made a commitment/promise to yourself and didn't follow thru.
There is no exhaustion and frustration when...
You hit your goals.
You feel ahead of the game.
You do more than is asked or expected of you.
You make a promise to yourself and you KEEP it.
This is where peace lives.
Commitment and Discipline.
There is no magic pill, magic solution, 30 days to a better you, mastermind to better health, etc... there is nothing "secret" to getting your health back and staying healthy.
The only pill to swallow (and for most it's a difficult one) is committing to the right things for the rest of your life.
Some people get this principle and for others... it's just not for you.
Moms are the best!
Stress can happen in multiple forms.
Physical, emotional, and chemical. Or as we (chiros) call them - the 3 Ts.
Thoughts, Traumas, and Toxins.
This is why all forms of stress can cause our neck to get tight and restricted, our shoulders to rise, posture to collapse, and energy drop.
Since the accumulation of stress damage is invisible, we rarely realize it, but there is a physical response to our stress...
If the stress is constant (and cumulative) day in and day out, the body's posture becomes 'tired'... not only do our muscles and nerves get worn out, but we do too.
The most common "mom zone" for tension is in the neck, shoulders, and in between the shoulder blades. This physical tension can cause the thyroid to get out of whack, mess with the adrenals, and jazz up other hormones... leading to moms feeling drained, fatigued, and not able to manage all of life's demands. Which for mom... is a lot!
Moms are the best! And that is why we want to help them live the best versions of themselves.
Stop leading from crap behaviors.
Whether as a business owner, a parent, or in your personal life...
Stop demanding your employees to do something you are unwilling to do.
Stop demanding your kids to do something you are unwilling to do.
Stop demanding your friends to do something you are unwilling to do.
And personally stop demanding results without demanding a massive amount of effort out of yourself!
Do you want your kids off of social media and fakebook?
Stop scrolling on your phone.
Do you want your kids to stop playing video games?
Then unglue yourself from binge watching tv and sports on the weekends.
Do you want your kids to stop eating such crap food?
Then put down the beer, snacks, and convenient meals.
Do you want your kids to be more active and hardworking?
Let them see you move, workout, work, etc...
Do you wonder why your kids lose respect for their parents? Do you wonder why your circle never follows thru and makes excuses?
Look at your own programming, your own habits, behaviors, action and effort level and you'll probably find 100 reasons why...
And if you want it to change, change you.
I've told the inside-out chiropractic principle to thousands of people curious about their health, wanting to get their health back, or wanting to create their fairy-tale ending.
Most of them TALK about being "healthy"... they even ask me for advice... but very few DO (the right things).
I always say the same thing: you need to start with the correct FOUNDATION.
So many have been indoctrinated with the outside-in allopathic model.
Very few have the correct principle to build upon...
They believe health is exercise, eating healthy, managing their weight, looking good and feeling good...
Although, those are very good behaviors to do, there is a HUGE blindspot in that philosophy...
Your nervous system controls EVERYTHING in the body... including the body's innate ability to respond, adapt, and overcome stress... and eating healthy, exercising, managing your weight, looks and feelings don't restore and maintain function of your spine and nerves.
I've always wondered why most people spend more money and time planning their vacations than they do planning their family's health.
I've always wondered why most people have no issue buying five frappe mocho venti carmel frickachinnos for their coworkers for $47 than investing in regular chiropractic care...
I've always wondered why most people take health advice from a medical doctor who receives year end bonu$e$ based on how many people he/she has on drugs and how many injectables they gave throughout the year...
That's why I've created a special ebook for you...
How to become successful investing in your health.
Regardless of what we do, our bodies will continue to adapt. Leave a plant in a stationary position and it will predictably grow towards the window. This is not a "wrong condition", it doesn't warrant a diagnosis, the plant is not evolving into another species, etc... it is simply adapting to it's environment.
If there is one thing humans are really good at, it's adapting. That's because there is intelligence within the design...
We are certainly not unique in our ability to adapt to our environment compared to other living organisms... but we are certainly the best at it. Other species have been eradicated from the face of the earth and some endangered and almost extinct... What makes humans unique is that we have adapted the best to the ever changing environment since the beginning of time.
Despite this amazing capacity, this seemingly miraculous ability to adapt to our conditions, we have a tendency to label such adaptations as a "condition", "morbidity" or "diagnosis" and then treat the said condition rather than fix the condition (environment) the person is adapting to.
When a biologist studies a population of fish in Lake Michigan that have been growing tumors on their bodies, rather than diagnosing and treating their tumors (condition) they look to the environment (what's contaminating the water) causing this adaptation process to occur and then creating a plan to change the environment.
Conditions are no different in humans.
Conditions are conditional.
They are dependent on the myriad of factors that we are ALL subjected to... these factors are physical, chemical, and emotional in nature. (the 3 T's - thoughts, traumas, and toxins).
We've all experienced adaptation throughout our lives. If we fall victim to falling off our bike as a kid (we've all done it), your body will adapt to that injury.
What about the physical stress of sitting all day? It adapts. What about standing all day? It adapts.
Think about how much the body adapts during pregnancy... everything from conception to hormonal changes to physical changes to mom and baby to the actual birth... it all demonstrates that the body is AMAZING at adapting.
Yet, so many experts have been taught, trained, and paid to look at these "adapting processes" through the wrong lens.
They view adapting through the lens of "something is wrong".
Low back pain 3rd trimester? Something is wrong. Here's a lotion.
You get sick all the time? Something is wrong. Here's a potion.
You have symptoms? Here's a diagnosis. Something is wrong. Here's a pill.
The Wonder and Marvel of medicine is, everyone that seems to use it are always sick and taking pills... and their consolation prize for never getting better is another diagnosis, more side effects, and more pills.
What if all those changes (good and bad) are simply the body responding to the INPUT you give it?
What if the answer you were looking for was not prepackaged in a bottle that you had to swallow 3xs per day on an empty stomach?
What if the answer you were looking for was always INSIDE of you?
What if your sickness is just a by product of the input you've been giving it for the last 10-30 years?
What if your sickness could go away by simply changing the input?
What if I told you it DOES!
But swallowing a pill is so much easier...
Would you do the work and let your body adapt and heal or just keep swallowing pills forcing your body to adapt and create dis-ease?
Either way, you're always adapting.
The mustard in the fridge
How in the world do we miss things that are clearly right in front of us?
Very easily actually... I mean, your wife asks you to grab the mustard in the fridge but you didn't realize that this particular brand of mustard she asked for is not the regular yellow mustard... it's the one that has a greenish color when it should CLEARLY be YELLOW!!
Why did they do that??
I'll tell you why. It's because people never consider YOUR perspective. They are more interested in being clever and different at YOUR EXPENSE.
You see, when you start looking for a new chiropractor, you usually pull out that little plastic white card in your purse or wallet (the insurance card) and call the number on the back to find out what chiropractors are "in network" and what your "benefits" are...
This is that magic mustard in the greenish bottle labeled "Moutarde de Meaux".
It looks nice... but man... is it expensive if you keep consuming it.
Everyone just wants the regular mustard. Not because it's cheaper. Because it works.
This is why The Wellness Pointe has developed our one-of-a-kind fee system.
The Honor Box.
This system allows for every man, woman and child to receive weekly (or unlimited) chiropractic wellness checks to keep your nervous system and brain working optimally.
There are 27 Million Americans without insurance. Yes you read that right.
And those who are insured, are usually under insured... with high co-pays, co-insurances, high deductibles, and a high percentage of denied claims.
We've all felt the pain of green mustard...
But The Wellness Pointe values your perspective and your expenses.
The government will never figure this out...
But we have.
And we'd love for you and your family to check us out if you haven't already!
I want a refund.
Isn’t it funny how people demand a guarantee from others but they rarely demand a guarantee from themselves?
“In 30 days if you don’t make money with this program you’ll get your money back.”
“In 30 days if you don’t lose weight with our program you’ll get your money back.”
“In 30 days if your sleep doesn’t improve, send back the empty bottle and we’ll refund you 100%.”
People are always quick to point at someone else and say, “You let me down.”
How often do these same people look themselves in the mirror and say, “I let myself down.” ????
It’s always easier to blame someone else for their failures than it is to take responsibility for them…
It’s easier to blame your boss for your lack of success.
It’s easier to blame your personal trainer for your lack of fitness.
It’s easier to blame your spouse for all your problems.
It’s easier to blame your chiropractor for all your symptoms or your lack of improvement.
It’s always easier… for now…
Have you ever looked yourself in the mirror and said:
“I’m not getting up on time.”
“I’m not putting in the work.”
“I’m not putting in the effort.”
“I’m not making it a priority.”
“I’m not putting in 100%.”
“I let me down.”
People would rather hold someone else to the fire than themselves.
You don’t owe anyone an apology. And no one owes you a refund.
You owe yourself a personal guarantee.
Guarantee yourself you’ll wake up on time.
Guarantee yourself no more tv til your work is done.
Guarantee yourself no more desserts, no more eating out, no more snacks until you get your result.
Guarantee yourself no more alcohol/no more smoking.
Guarantee yourself you’re working out daily now.
Guarantee yourself no more skipping my weekly chiropractic adjustments.
You owe it to yourself to get better because today is the easiest day you’ll have to do it.
Never in the history of human existence has the brain ever sent down a message to the body of sickness, illness, disease, or infirmity.
