Just a quick reminder from us here at The Wellness Pointe, especially our WEEKLY wellness members, that spring is often the time of year where we need an ‘extra boost’ adjustment here and there!
The positives to spring is the breeze, the sun, the warmth and the fish are biting... But the not so positive is our body's "plumbing" system will be called upon to do some additional work for the next few months.
As we have already taught many of you (If you've been to the extra workshops we offer here), our body’s “plumbing” system is really run by our “electrical” system (nervous system), our “HVAC” system (respiratory and lymphatics), and our “waste removal” system (gut and digestion). If any of these systems, especially the neuro-immune system, are not functioning at full throttle right now, the increased demands of spring time (dirt, pollen, dander, etc) will begin to “bog it down” and lead to the common symptoms most everyone calls – ALLERGIES.
The real truth behind all this is your body’s not really “allergic” to that certain substance, it’s just that your body may not be working at optimal capacity and efficiency in the way of clearing them out.
So while many people feel “miserable” this time of year and are virtually forced to hide inside and load up on over-the-counter allergy meds, for many of our long-standing wellness patients it may be as simple as needing an extra “boost adjustment” or two during the spring times!
Here's a few suggestions to help keep those "allergens" off your barriers (eyes, nose, hair, mouth, etc..)
1. Wear a hat: Many people accumulate "allergens" in their hair while they are outside and drag them back inside, lay down on their bed and now they have completely engulfed themselves both outside as well as inside with pollen, dirt, dust, dander, etc..
2. Wear sunglasses: People sometimes get irritated eyes during this time of the year. Wearing an extra barrier over you eyes during this time can help.
3. GET ADJUSTED; -- Nothing better than a better adaptive neuro-immune system when fighting off foreign invaders!
QUESTION: If you are a current WEEKLY member (meaning you've been checked within the last 7-10 days and you've been to ORIENTATION class) and you need an EXTRA adjustment this week for a "boost", HOW MUCH DOES IT COST YOU???
NOTHING! (If you put something in the box for your first visit this week) Isn't Wellness Great!
People say, "I'd really benefit or my family would really benefit from chiropractic BUT it's just TOO EXPENSIVE". These excuses are rooted in 3 reasons: Time, Money and/or Insurance. At The Wellness Pointe, we understand all of that -- SO we make each appointment quick, within your means (we explain this more in orientation class) and WITHOUT insurance.
As with everything, The CAUSE is the CURE.
See you all later this week or AGAIN this week if you need an extra boost!
