This Hyphen Changes EVERYTHING

State of Ease

When our bodies are in a state of EASE, there is optimal function, healing, and cell repair. As you know, this is all controlled by our brain and nerve system. It means there is a healthy response to any stress around us – physical, chemical and/or emotional. If you gardened for 8 hours, and you rarely spend time doing that activity, would you be surprised to be sore the next day or two? You would be sore from inflammation, which is a healthy response as tissues are repaired. Would it surprise you to have a headache that lasted a few hours after you had an argument with your spouse or children? You would expect to feel bloated and heavy after eating a meal full of carbohydrates. Our bodies heal fully and there are no lasting effects when we are in a state of EASE.

Symptoms Can Be Healthy

Even when we are stricken with a fever, our body is in a state of EASE. The body is healing by increasing our internal temperature to stimulate our immune system, and decrease the efficiency of bacteria and viruses. There is evidence showing that when Tylenol (or other fever lowering drugs) is taken, it actually takes longer to heal from the infection. Food poisoning is another example. A healthy response is for your body to recognize the toxin and get rid of it – quickly.

Dis-ease = Disconnection

DIS-EASE, or ‘lack of ease’, is when there is less than normal healing and cell repair. When subluxation occurs, it limits the amount of body to brain connection, and as you know, decreases function, healing and cell repair. When DIS-EASE begins, there are few, if any, symptoms to signal to you that a problem is occurring. Can you have tooth decay, cancer, joint degeneration, diabetes or blood vessel damage without symptoms or pain? We all know someone diagnosed with cancer, who didn’t live very long after they were diagnosed. Screening tests for cancer and other diseases only exist because we can’t rely on symptoms to tell us how well we’re functioning. Why do children or adults with no symptoms get adjusted? To make sure they’re at EASE!

“You treat a disease…you win…you lose. You treat a person, I guarantee you, you’ll win, no matter what the outcome.” ~ Dr. Hunter “Patch” Adams

Dis-ease to Disease

By just removing a hyphen, we move from dis-ease to disease.  A DISEASE is a “disorder of structure or function, especially one that produces specific signs or symptoms or that affects a specific location and is not simply a direct result of physical injury.” This is where much of western medicine has invested time, energy and resources. When a specific set of symptoms or signals can be classified, guidelines can be followed to treat that disease. Patients are given something from the outside, with the belief that it is required for any healing to occur. DISEASE treatment can be life-saving, but it never creates a higher level of healing and function.

  • 5 star rating  I have been a proud client of Dr. Neil and the support team since 2016 and wouldn't think of going anywhere else. I tried other chiropracters previously and the experience at Ancaster Family Chiropractic is far superior than any other. The atmosphere is positive, friendly and professional. The set up is great and the organization/structure just makes sense. I love having a key fob...makes me feel important! They actually teach about chiropractic care for a greater understanding of same. The name is fitting as you feel like part of the family. Thanks for everything you do.

    In all honesty, Dr. Neil has been a huge help getting rid of my headaches and chronic sickness - issues that no medication in the world could help. He’s a class act and treats his clients like a true professional. If you’re dealing with any sort of health issues, I would recommend booking an appointment with him.

  • 5 star rating  I have been a patient with Dr Neil for about 2 years now and have definitely noticed an overall improvement in my well being and good health feeling since starting with the adjustments. I can also attribute a successful and remarkable quick recovery from 2 Total Knee Replacement surgeries to having good chiropractic care supporting good health healing! Dr. Neil is not only a caring friendly professional, he is also highly experienced and I wish to recommend him to anyone that needs a boost to daily health.
