Hot & Cold!!!

Hey gang!  I hope you all are having a great week! 

How amazing is your body?  It blows my mind how incredibly smart your body is!

Think about this….

You walk outside, it’s the middle of summer, 105 degrees outside…what does your body start to do?  Yup…SWEAT!  Now I’m sure some of you are saying, “Big deal!”  We take it for granted.  But if you take a second to really comprehend this, you must have an incredible appreciation for your body’s Innate wisdom!

What you might not realize is that in this environment, your body is only a few degrees from internal combustion basically!  The body realizes this and adapts accordingly.  Sweating is the body’s Innate way of cooling itself down!  Incredible!  Did you even have to think about doing this?  Nope, it happened naturally!  What if the sweating didn’t happen?  Who knows, but I don’t want to find out, as I have roasted marshmallows before and it never turns out well for the marshmallow! ;)

Let’s take a look at the other end of the spectrum…

It’s the middle of winter, 10 below (if yer up nort der hey u betcha!), and you walk outside without a coat on.  What happens?  You start to shiver.  Amazing!!!  Again, this is your body’s natural response in order to warm itself up.  You don’t have to think about it and rarely can you even control it!  What if that didn’t happen?  I repeat,  I would rather not find out!

What’s the take away here?  Don’t take your Innate Intelligence for granted!  It knows what’s best for you!  It’s smarter than all the doctors on this planet combined!  Trust it!  This is the philosophy principled Chiropractors have believed for over 115 years!  We’d love to have you on board!

Love and Health,

Dr. Chaz
