Maple, ON – Health and happiness … two attributes that all people thrive for. People say, “without your health there is nothing”. I have noticed too that people are consciously or subconsciously searching for happiness in their life.

Interestingly, I have yet to meet a person who is sick that is happy and I have yet to meet a person who is unhappy that is generally healthy.

I have learned that to get what you want in life, look at other people who have what you want and do the same things that they are doing. So, if you are striving to better your health and are searching for happiness, do what other healthy, happy people do.

Here are the 7 Transformational Habits Of Healthy, Happy People:

1. They Get Regular Chiropractic Care – As a chiropractor, I meet many people who are searching for better health. My newest patients, when they come in with pain, stress and other health problems, the last emotion they are expressing is happiness. Some are frustrated with their pain and illness, some saddened and some are worried. But something amazing happens when they pursue chiropractic care … they get healthier, they become pain free, they handle their stress better and their quality of life improves. And this makes them much more happy!! The healthiest, happiest people I have ever met in my life are chiropractic patients. Chiropractic offers a unique approach to health care that aims to discover the root cause of the pain or health problem and then assists in correcting the root cause. Chiropractors work on balancing the nervous system by correcting spinal misalignments that interfere with healthy nerve transmission. The nervous system controls all bodily functions, all healing and all repair. The nervous system, especially the brain, is also involved with emotions and memory. Therefore, when the nervous is functioning optimally, people express better health, better function and improved emotional control. It’s no wonder that people who get regular chiropractic care are healthier and happier.

453 Million Prescriptions … And Canadians Still Getting Sicker?

Monday, January 27th, 2014

Chiropractor in Vaughan (Maple, ON) discusses how to express health naturally from the inside out.

pill bottleChiropractic is often referred to as the missing piece of the puzzle? Actually, I like to be more specific and say chiropractic is the missing piece of the health care puzzle.

Well, consider this … 453 million prescriptions are filled out annually (2008 stat). That’s an average of 14 prescriptions per Canadian citizen a year!!!

However, heart disease is on the rise. Cancer is on the rise. Diabetes is on the rise. Obesity is on the rise. The quality of health for children is declining.

Let me ask you, if Canadians are taking so many drugs, why is that people are getting sicker? 

You see … more drugs is not the answer.  Why? … Because health comes from within, not from a plastic bottle with chemicals.

This is why chiropractic is different. Chiropractic doesn’t add health, it removes the interference to the expression of your inborn healing.

Spine Back

You have the ability to heal, naturally from the inside out and this is expressed through your nervous system (brain, spinal cord and nerves).  But a shift in spinal bones (spinal misalignment) will cause an interference in that expression of normal health.

Today’s tip, then, is to make spinal care a fundamental pillar of your health and wellness.  Chiropractic works to correct the problem by removing the interference with specific scientific chiropractic adjustments. With the interference removed, the body is in a better position to naturally express full health. Research shows that an optimal spine equals optimal health. 

If you are stressed-out, in pain or already have a health problem or condition, give yourself an opportunity to be guided to heal from the inside out with chiropractic. Get a chiropractic spinal check up today with a chiropractor in your community. If you are looking for answers and want to see how chiropractic can help, please give us a call.

If you are currently under chiropractic care, congratulations and keep it up.  

Be part of health care, not disease care.  It’s about better living naturally, not better living by chemistry. Choose chiropractic today for optimal health. An optimal spine equals optimal health.

If you are new to chiropractic and want to see how chiropractic can help you relieve pain, conquer stress and express more health, give us a call at (905) 303-1009.

A Healthy Lifestyle Is A Decision Away

Tuesday, December 31st, 2013

How to have less stress, more peace, more energy, be stronger and healthier, now and for the long run.

Maple, ON – The common health problems that plague many people today, such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes and obesity, are all preventable diseases. This means that often times, these conditions develop because of things that we do to ourselves on a daily bases.

Your lifestyle choices are a big deal when it comes to enjoying the best health. Your lifestyle choices are a big deal, too, when it comes to preventing heart disease, cancer, diabetes and obesity.

You see, being healthy is a decision away. What this means is that you have the power to be healthy, stay healthy or get healthy. It starts with a decision, such as: “I am committing to being the healthiest I can be, now and forever”.

Being healthy, staying healthy or getting healthy is a choice. The choice is yours. With that, other choices follow that will keep you on the wellness and healthy path.

Choices like eating good nutritious foods; choices like exercising regularly every week; choices like managing your stress with effective coping strategies; choices like planing for your life with inspring goals; choices like getting regular chiropractic care to keep your spine and nervous system healthy.

Yes, a healthy, happy, peaceful, stronger and energetic life is a lifestyle. This lifestyle requires a choice. A decision. Are you up to making that decision for a healthy lifesytle? It starts with you.

Go for it!

How To Prevent A ‘Heart Attack Grill’-Like Incident

Wednesday, February 15th, 2012

Did you hear? Fox News reported about a man who suffered a heart attack while dining at a popular Las Vegas restaurant and the restaurant is called Heart Attack Grill.

Irony, you call it? Coincidence? Or was it a series of choices that led to an impactful wake-up call for this man? Luckily the paramedics arrived in time to help this man and reports say he is alive.

More then likely this wasn’t due to a one-time meal at a high-calorie restaurant but due to a series of choices that culminated in a traumatic and life-threatening incident.

At our clinic, Back To Health Chiropractic Centre, we teach about choices at our wellness workshops and lectures. I tell our patients that the choices you make today in life will shape your future.  And if you want to live a life of your dreams and vision, the choices you make today absolutely matter.  So you owe it to yourself to make the right choices for your health and your well-being, not just for now but for the rest of your life.

Optimal Posture Is Essential For Overall Health And Well-Being

Friday, February 10th, 2012

Have you ever looked in the mirror and noticed one shoulder may be lower then the other? Or have you ever noticed your friend’s head is way too forward? Or have you ever look at someone else and noticed they have a “hump” in the upper back? Or has someone ever told you that you slouch when you’re standing?

These are just some of the many types of postural imbalances that are common in people, adults, teens and children alike.

Postural imbalances or postural displacements can cause strain and stress on spinal bones, nerves and muscles.  This can lead aches, pain, fatigue and even a decrease in body function and health.

What is normal ideal posture? What does normal posture look like? Read on …

“Re-commit to your health in 2011.”

Tuesday, January 4th, 2011

The holidays are over…now what?  January should not be a time of “starts”.  Such as… “I’m going start going to the gym and exercise”, or “I’m going to eat less  and choose better quality foods” or “I’m going to start a detox and cleanse program” or “I’m going to start going to the chiropractor again”, etc…

Instead, January should be a continuum of your overall commitment to your health and well-being.  It should be a time where you are building upon the momementum you created in the previous months.

Many people make new year resolutions only to give up and quit by the first week of February.  What is lacking is commitment.  When it comes to values and choices for your health, nothing is more important then your commitment to yourself, your health and your wellbeing. 

Once you are committed, the rest falls into place.  You begin to create a plan for ongoing fitness and exercise, you create a habit of eating well and choosing nutritious foods, you begin to find ways to get healthy and stay healthy, whether it be with chiropractic care or other holistic therapies or dropping bad health habits. Eventually, health and wellness becomes a ongoing choice and lifestyle. All this is driven by your commitment.

So whether its January, March,  June or October, you are always on the path of a healthy lifestyle because of choice and because of the ongoing commitment to your health, for now and for longevity.

Your health is your most precious asset. Re-commit to your health in 2011.
