Imagine you are sick and have taken the day off work to stay home and rest. You are sitting on the couch wrapped in your favorite snuggie that you bought on QVC last winter. What’s a snuggie you ask, google it. The TV is on. Jerry Springer. A husband and wife are fighting about which of his girlfriends needs to leave the house. Cut to commercial. Worker’s comp lawyer. ED pill. Red Copper pan. Health in a bottle. This last one grabs your attention. Finally, a magic pill you can buy and take on a daily basis that will cure what ails you. You’ll lose weight and look 20 years younger too. The first bottle is free. You only pay for shipping and “handling.” Deal. We are always trying to find “that one thing.” The pill. The exercise machine. The super lotto ticket. The laser therapy. Whatever. But wait, there’s more. I would argue that there kind of is “that one thing” in health that we should all be focusing on. Perhaps it would be better to call it the “most important thing” or “the most important thing that we have the ability to change” but since that’s too long to put as the title of this article we’ll just call it “that one thing.” Which is…inflammation.
After writing an article per week for a year, I just kept going. These are most of my collection. They are written with my existing patients in mind, so some stuff may seem odd or unusual, but would make perfect sense to those who know chiropractic and who know me. Enjoy and share!
