Health Care or Disease Care?
Health care versus disease care is a topic of debate for years. John Redmond Coxe, a physician and professor of medicine, quoted in 1800, 200 years ago,“ The longer I live, the less confidence I have in drugs and the greater is my confidence in the regulation and administration of diet and regimen.”
There are different approaches, such as health care versus disease care. There is a marked difference between the two.
Disease care is the traditional medical system mainly used to treat health problems. The doctor looks for the symptom and the body part causing that symptom. Often treatment involves a drug most of the time and possibly surgery.
This form of care is not a health model. Most of the time, taking drugs for some time creates other symptoms or side effects. It ends up in a vicious cycle of taking various medications to treat different symptoms. It’s instead better to be more proactive by giving the body what it needs.
Chiropractic practices health care. Chiropractors focus on the nervous system as it is the master controlling body system. The nervous system coordinates all body functions. Chiropractors find out what’s causing the interference to the nervous system’s ability to communicate from the brain to the tissue cell. They help the body heal from the inside out without the use of drugs or surgery.
It means chiropractic looks at how a person moves, eats, and thinks. These are essential areas because flawed thinking, eating habits, or movement patterns stress the nervous system. The nervous system can handle stress but can also get overwhelmed. It can break down to cause problems and trigger symptoms.
It’s better to find out what the root cause of the issue is and take action there. Chiropractors help their patients get the most out of their lives by supporting them inside out. They believe that innate intelligence needs to be expressed positively to heal the body.
