If you look good and feel great, does that make you healthy? Not necessarily. So what does being healthy actually mean?
Whether it's the latest health scare or the newest fad diet, there's almost always something health related in the news. However, most of these stories never really discuss what it to be healthy.
Health is More Than How You Feel
The World Health Organization, defines health as "a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity." However most people tend to ignore their health until obvious symptoms arise. This is a reactive approach to health as opposed to a proactive approach.
So let's flip the approach around and get proactive with the help of regular chiropractic care to get you healthy and keep you healthy.
