You are intelligent. When I say this, I am referring to the innate intelligence that is in your body, and has been since Day 1. This is the intelligence that keeps your heart beating, your lungs breathing, your food digesting, your hair growing, your wounds healing, and so on. This intelligence gives you life.
Your body is self-healing. This is one of the main ideas within the philosophy of chiropractic. You have been incredibly designed by Nature and there are intricate processes in place within you to keep you alive and healthy. A fever, for example, is designed to raise your internal body temperature to kill off pathogens. A joint will swell to immobilize it while the body sends an increased amount of nutrients to heal the injury. When you are sick, you sleep, so that healing can take place while you’re resting and not expending energy elsewhere.
Your body is capable. You have the capabilities to defend and heal from foreign invaders. Being sick, while usually inconvenient and not ever fun, is not something to be feared. There is a reason you have an immune system. We come into contact with millions of bacteria, viruses, and fungi daily! And look at you, you are here and alive and thriving still, because of your body’s defenses.
You are strong. This is a tough time right now, as our lives as we knew it were upended a few weeks ago. There is a lot of fear, anxiety, and panic floating around right now. Know that you will be okay. It is absolutely human to have emotions about our current situation, but at the end of the day, we, the world, will be okay. We will get through this.
Trust in your body. Trust in your intelligence. Trust in your capabilities. Don't let fear get in the way of your trust in your health.
Peace, Love,and Wellness
