What is Wellness?
What is wellness?
The terms “health” and “wellness” go hand in hand, but there is a distinct difference.
Science estimates that the human body comprises 50-100 trillion cells, which constitute a magnificent ecosystem of cells. This ecosystem or internal environment is constantly communicating with itself over and over. It’s to make sure that each cell is aware of what the other cells in the area are doing with the sole purpose of keeping the ecosystem balanced or healthy.
Health is internal body balance
According to a study, one million cells die in our bodies per second which is also quickly replenished. It means that in six days, the human body will have produced a new stomach lining and replaces the skeletal structure in three months.
At Divine Spine Chiropractic Studio, health relates to these trillions of cells working together and supporting health. Health has everything to do with the internal balance of the body’s physiological state.
Wellness has to do with the balance between the mind, body, spirit, and physiology interaction with its external environment. A person whose life is balanced and has no stress is abundant with wellness. However, someone with pressure in their lives impacts their internal environment (the ecosystem of cells), leading to illness and disease.
Chiropractic focuses on wellness care
Chiropractic is most concerned about health, which has a direct impact on a person’s wellness. Chiropractors consider the body a whole organism and how it works to sustain health.
In contrast, doctors of western medicine tend to concentrate purely on a symptom or isolated area of the body to induce what is going on. The medical model focuses on sickness care while Chiropractic focuses on wellness care by teaching people better self-care to have a happier and healthier life experience.
