I heard a shocking statistic today–62% of all bankruptcies were due to some type of medical catastrophe! Are you kidding me? And for the most part, this included the people that had insurance going into their medical situation. This is not only shocking, it is disturbing! How can we have a system in place that hopefully saves us physically only to break us financially? Something about this is totally wrong!

It is pretty easy to agree at this point our health care and insurance systems need to be reworked. They are failing people left and right. For being the most educated and theoretically civilized country in the world, something is really, really wrong.

On the other hand, it points out the opportunity for personal responsibility and more importantly prevention. We are living in a time where it has become very evident that the “big guys” don’t necessarily have our best interest at heart so we need to individually and collectively take care of ourselves.

This fact is actually one of the many reasons why it makes sense to take a holistic approach to your personal health including turning to Chiropractic to help keep yourself “in tune”. God produced the perfect being and the only thing that can heal the body is the body. Once you understand that, the rest is far easier to understand. If the body heals the body, doesn’t it make sense to fill it with the very best nutritionally, workout to keep it strong physically and have a Chiropractor adjust you consistently to allow God’s physical plant to run at its’ optimum.
