This quote by Thomas Edison alludes to the goal of not waiting for a disease or symptom to strike the human body and then treat with medicine. It would seem he had a vision that shifted the focus of energy of treatment away from prescribing medicines to a more proactive prevention through wellness care…the care that seeks to turn on the body’s natural healing ability. That is the difference between sick care and wellness care. Standard sick care tries to add something from the outside to the body to treat a symptom. Wellness care trusts that the body knows what to do once there is nothing interfering with it. The aim is to remove that interference. Wellness care through chiropractic care provides the body that better receptive environment for achieving optimal health. Don’t wait until you are sick and hurting to do something. Get adjusted and enjoy life!
