Do you know someone that makes “things” more complex than necessary? Personally, I have found myself making this mistake as well. In fact, just last month I was sent out on the task of picking out a bottle of wine for dinner. Sounds simple, however I sure made this task more of a chore:
What food are we eating?
How “nice” of a wine am I suppose to choose?
What wine needs to be consumed first? (Is one going to spoil faster, if I choose the wrong one?)
Which wine will everyone enjoy, not just myself?
WOW! I completely over-analyzed the simple task of just picking a wine. 45 minutes later, the dinner is getting cold, and I am more confused than I was initially. Why do we sometimes feel overwhelmed with a simple task? The answer is going to be very simple, so don’t over-analyze it…
Simplicity sometimes makes us think we are missing something.
However, one can overcome this aggravating trait, by doing the following 2 steps:
1-Understand the source. Example: If I tell you that a nerve that is interfered with is causing your decreased health, I am making a very simple statement. However, one should understand the complexity that allowed me to get to that statement. Here is just a part of that complexity: There are billions of messages that are constantly being transmitted over miles and miles of nerve connections, and space between those nerve connections. This highway of nerve “talk” works really well, however there is something called a subluxation. A subluxation interferes with the normal transmission of “talk”. The “talk” is vitally important…it is what keeps you alive, reproducing, digesting, thinking, acting, and any other -ing.
2-Just choose. Without a choice at all, there is a 100% chance that nothing will change. Example: My wife wants wine. She did not ask for it in 45 minutes. Get my drift?
In time you will see that simplicity in action allows for a better life experience. Try it out!
The cursor blinks, and awaits your command. All “they” need is a password. There in lies the problem, everyone wants a password. “They” place strict requirements on these passwords now. Seems like someone really wants to hack into my twitter account…
OK, so the password needs to be at least 4 numerals, 1 capital, no dashes allowed, no numbers in sequential order(the old 1234 trick), 8 alphabet letters, and it needs to change every 3 weeks.
The rules keep adding up over time. So now I have a list, a long list.
A list of all the passwords. It scrolls on for pages and pages. Page one, the very top, are the good old days when I would use my dog’s name as the password. ROXY. All caps. No crazy person would leave the caps on. That is all it took back then, and who is going to know the name of my dog anyway? Then requirements became more strict over time, and maybe they should….I started sending emails to my friends about being stuck in Nigeria and needing some money to get back home.
Then I started using passwords that were of old pets. You know, the first animal your family trusted you with, Frisky. Frisky was an awesome gerbil. Not sure what happened to him…he was very frisky.
Then the passwords went deeper into my life…my mother’s maiden name. My favorite English teacher. My favorite basketball player. You would have thought that’d be enough. Now, when I set up a password, there’s this little judging box, where some former hacker tells me whether the password is “strong”.
As much as I have to reset my passwords, for failure of remembering, I am humbled when comparing this all to Innate’s task.
Now, think about what your Innate Intelligence is charged with 24 hours a day. Innate works through your nerve system in order to keep everything in order. Innate knows the passwords to every function of every cell, tissue, and organ in your body. It knows when to change them, where to log-in, what to do after, for how long, and for what predicted outcome. The password sheet for Innate’s passwords would outnumber anything created by man 100 fold. The power our human body’s well outnumber the new iPhone, no matter how big the display, or numerous the functions and storage capacity.
The cursor blinks, and awaits your Innate’s command. Luckily, you don’t have to think about it at all, just don’t interfere.
More than 100 years ago, D.D. Palmer (the very first chiropractor) understood that the normal tone of the human body was altered when someone was sick. His huge amounts of educational work in the study of the human body led him to the understanding of health founded on TONE:
A subluxation is an interruption of the normal tone in the nerve system. When subluxations are detected and corrected, the human body will experience better health.
The easy way to understand tone is to look at a guitar. What makes the sound of the guitar? Being a great guitar player comes down to one thing: tightening and loosening the strings. This changes the tone of the guitar, and makes the sounds you hear.
So, really a chiropractor is not much different. We tighten and loosen the nervous system by adjusting. The results of this can and have been researched widely for over 100 years now. In fact, many chiropractors can measure before and after effects of your nerve system in their office in minutes.
It all comes down to this, when you are tuned properly, you will experience better health.
Prevention and early detection are 2 completely different things. While prevention seeks healthy habits prior to disease, early detection is geared to detect disease. So, when I saw this recent article, I wasn’t surprised: http://online.wsj.com/articles/some-cancer-experts-see-overdiagnosis-and-question-emphasis-on-early-detection-1410724838
However, the content of the article did surprise me. What conventional medicine continues to miss is that fighting disease is the wrong paradigm to begin with:
“We’re not finding enough of the really lethal cancers, and we’re finding too many of the slow-moving ones that probably don’t need to be found,” says Laura Esserman, a breast-cancer surgeon at the University of California, San Francisco.
What Ms Esserman, and many other in her profession, fail to grasp is this: We do not need to “find more cancer” to destroy. What would be more beneficial to all involved would be to prevent the cancer in the first place.
Another point of this article that did not surprise me:
Small, localized prostate cancers are so ubiquitous in older men that the risk is roughly equal to a man’s age: a 70-year-old has a 70% chance of harboring the disease. Yet the average lifetime risk of dying of prostate cancer is less than 3% according to the American Cancer Society.
Just because you have cancer does not mean it will negatively impact your health. Your immune system is constantly taking care of cancerous cells throughout your body. Those with a healthy immune system (which means you practice preventative measures more often), have a much better chance of a healthy life, even with a cancer diagnosis!
In the business world, I have always tried to hold to the standard, “without statistics, our emotions rule”. This is true in personal life as well. Let’s give a couple of examples of improper analysis of health.
1- You base your health on what you look like. No doubt, there is some truth that someones appearance can be a tell for their health. I am sure we have all had people ask if we were feeling ok, based on our physical appearance. However, if this is your main means of objectively checking your health state, then you will be sorely disappointed later in life.
**Alternatively, use objective means to check your health state. Most importantly, check the master control system of your entire body, your nerve system.
2- You determine your condition by your symptoms. Unless you are a doctor, you should not be performing diagnosis measures on yourself, or your family. Web MD, and other symptom checkers on the internet, are there simply to refer you to a doctor. It is amazing what people will miss regarding their health, because the symptoms did not match up with the diagnosis they felt compelled to perform.
**Instead, try not judging your health on symptoms at all. Use measurement tools by qualified doctors that will analyze you without symptom, or name calling diseases. Truly finding health limitations before the named disease or health condition presents itself is a true expression of health management.
Once you move out of your parents’ house, your health is your responsibility. Become the responsible steward of your health, by analyzing your health with statistics, and making corrections along the way based on responsible data.
