|THE ROAD TO AN OPTIMAL LIFE BEGINS WITH OPTIMAL HEALTH|
Achieving optimal health is like the Phoenix that rises from the ashes. You can regain your health and well-being to live the life you aspire to.
Sometimes we forget how great we used to feel. Stress, acute pain, and chronic illness can deteriorate one's quality of life. Getting back on the road to health can seem overwhelming, if not impossible.
When your body hasn't been balanced for one reason or another – either through lack of exercise or bad diet or illness or the daily stresses of life – a cascade of physiological events occur that result in poor health. This often surfaces as GI complaints, frequent illness, lethargy, depression, or pain.
We have good news. By addressing the body as a whole, and employing several highly effective techniques, we can help reverse months and even years of poor lifestyle habits and illness. Together we can help restore your body, mind and spirit to optimal health with our integrated approach to both cellular and systemic levels of care.
Cellular care looks to improve the state of the cells of the body as well as the fluids that keep them nourished and healthy. We begin our focus with a healthy diet adjusted correctly for age, body type, activity level and season of the year. Next we recommend vitamin and mineral supplements adjusted specifically to the individual's current health status. Balanced electrolytes help re-establish a more pristine tissue environment in which cells may better do their work. Vitamins and minerals provide the micro-nutrients that aid in healthy cell metabolism. Exercise increases oxygen to the cells and adequate water intake hydrates the cells and surrounding tissues. Immunity and nerve activity is further enhanced with chiropractic and acupuncture treatment.
Systemic care addresses the global effects of chiropractic, acupuncture, exercise and improved diet and nutrition. Improving posture and joint mechanics to stimulate the brain and spinal nerves is the focus of chiropractic treatment. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) which includes needle acupuncture restores the internal balance between our mind and body. Establishing good nutrition by developing healthy eating habits and correct exercise routines invigorates and sustains the work of chiropractic and TCM. Together these four modalities help restore the body's energy (Qi or Chi, pronounced 'chee') and maximize our physical and mental health as well as spiritual well-being.
The synergistic effects of combining chiropractic care, acupuncture, exercise, and improved nutrition are often immediate, long lasting and life enhancing. Before long, we begin to have a more positive outlook on life. We become happier, healthier human beings. Ultimately, one's life can transform and become more fulfilling and rewarding.
Whatever your current limitations are, let Community Chiropractor and Acupuncture, located in Park Slope, Brooklyn help you begin your journey towards optimal health. By working with the body's restorative energies, removing biomechanical interference, nourishing the cells and systems of the body, and enjoying daily exercise, we can begin to establish the life you envision.
