What is Heath? It is not a object. Something in a bottle or pill. It’s not something we can capture and keep. It is dynamic, always changing, and has no ceiling.
F1 race cars go fast. The engine is strong, powerful and is fine-tuned for maximum efficiency. Just like a speedometer, our immune system (health-meter) tells us if our body is working well – fast: powerful and efficient, or slow: stressed and compromised.
Health is a measure of how effective and enjoyable we can live life. If we need to avoid and limit our activity, our health is limiting our capacity to enjoy life. So how do we improve our health? We need to pay attention to our body and habits. This awareness lets us catch little things before they manifest as bigger problems.
If you were to hear a rattling noise coming from the car as you drive, would you just ignore it and wait for something to break down? Most if not all of us will decide to get it checked it out by the mechanic before the car falls apart.
Just like this noise, stiffness, aches and pains are your body’s rattling noises. They are beneficial alarm bells. Ignoring them (or muting them with pain killers and other drugs) only leads to chronic build-up and progression of problems that causes the body to break down and stop working properly.
Some people blame age. If you buy a brand new car, and never service it, there’s a chance within the first year or two, it could break down. And if you maintain and service a 10 or 20 year old car well, it will still drive you from A to B many times over, without a problem.
Getting small problems checked by the human body mechanic (chiropractor) when the noise (pain) first starts, means a better chance for a speedy and full recovery. And the side effects: not having to suffer from extended periods of pain, immobility and restriction in daily life.
This is how we can improve the health of our body, which in turn shows up as high speed and power on our speedometer of life.
