Neck pain, back pain, and headaches typically pop into the minds of most people when they think about chiropractic care. These same people respond with positive curiosity when they learn that chiropractic care does so much more, including helping kids and adults overcome pain and dysfunction. Chiropractic also provides a safe and natural way to improve many other aspects of health and human performance.
The month of October typically represents a change in the weather, falling of leaves, and preparations for Halloween. Another typical association with the month of October arrives with an abundance of the color pink that accompanies breast cancer awareness. The breast cancer awareness campaign began in the early 1990s and built momentum as more and more families experienced the impact or had an encounter with this challenging disease.
Awareness certainly brings attention to needs and causes but action needs to be a priority when it comes to health and prevention of disease. Breast cancer numbers continue to skyrocket as the awareness campaign continues to grow. Football players with pink socks, pink shoes, and pink wristbands stand out to raise awareness and money for breast cancer hospitals and research. People participate in walks and activities to support research and the quest for cancer cures. Doctors advocate for early detection as a sound approach. But early detection differs greatly from prevention. Early detection consists of testing to determine the presence of disease. Early detection serves a very helpful purpose in determining the size, location, and type of cancer as early as possible so appropriate treatment can begin. Real prevention consists of improving function inside the body, so the environment becomes a safe haven from the proliferation of cancer cells.
Some of the best research in the world proves that over 95% of cancers do not originate through genetics. Lifestyle represents the key to helping the body prevent cancer before it builds. Many aspects of lifestyle contribute to building appropriate building blocks of immunity through nutrition, emotional health, and exercise. The health of the body’s spine and biomechanics prove to be a powerful factor in improving immune function.
