These Two Things ANGER Me the Most…
Chiropractor in Vaughan Tells How Living with Headaches is Not “Normal
I don’t get angry, usually.
There are two things that I hear that just infuriate me. First, let me tell you about Jane.
I met Jane at one of our community outreach events and she tells me she has had headaches since she was 13 years old.
Her age today is 43. That’s 30 years of suffering with headaches. THIRTY YEARS!
That alone is enough to intrigue me and ask…”Jane, what have you done for your headaches?”
Jane replied, “Well, I have been taking four Advil’s a day for years.”
I said, “I understand, but you still have headaches after all these years.”
And Jane then said something that totally angered me…
She said, “I went to the doctor and the doctor said my headaches are normal and that I have to learn to live with them.”
I wasn’t angry with Jane. I was angry with what Jane was led to believe.
I can’t tell you how many times I have heard this.
Since when is it normal to have headaches? Or back pain, or neck pain, etc.
Since when is it normal to be sick or to suffer?
And NO! You don’t have to learn to live with the headache.
Jane was with her 10 year old daughter that day and I asked, “Jane, is it normal for your 10 year old daughter to have headaches?”
She quickly answered, “Of course not!”
“Then why is it normal for you have headaches?”
That’s when she paused.
I can see the gears turning in her brain as she was thinking about my question.
“I guess my headaches are not normal”, she says.
Fortunately for Jane, she started chiropractic care for her headaches.
Within 2 months, her headaches decreased by 50%. Within 6 months she was off all her Advil medication. Today, Jane is a happy woman totally free of headaches.
Let me ask you then?
If Jane didn’t solve her headaches today with chiropractic, where would she be in 30 years when she’s 73?
I don’t want to picture the answer to that question.
Our mission is to help sick and suffering people get well so the can live a long-lasting, healthy, and happy life.
Jane is now healthier, happier, is free of suffering, and on her way to a long-lasting quality of life.
