Perfection – I Almost Missed It

I hope you read the Article of the Week from last week.  If you missed it, click here to read it.

Perfection In a Plant

I talked about the perfection in a plant and how easily we can all see it.  When you observe a plant that is wilting, what questions automatically come to your mind?  Is it getting enough water?  Is it getting enough sunlight?  Is it protected from environmental stress – abnormal temperatures or wind?  Is the soil healthy?
And sometimes life offers you examples, and sometimes hits you in the face to make sure you’re paying attention.

I Almost Missed It

My wife bought some small vegetable plants for our garden last week – tomatoes, cucumbers, kale, herbs and few others.  The long weekend was very hot and they hadn’t gotten planted in the ground yet.  Take a wild guess what happened?  Wilty plants!  I mean really wilty.  The one tomato plant was completely limp lying flat on the ground and looked like it was going to end up in the compost bin.  I told her it was toast.
Then I remembered the Article of the Week….that I wrote.  Funny how that happens.  I took the plant inside, out of the hot sun (which it wasn’t used to yet) and gave it a good soaking with water.  Within about 20 minutes, it was standing up tall, looking healthy and ready to be planted.  I almost missed it!

Here’s what I was reminded of:

There is an incredible capacity in living things to adapt, heal and press on, as long as they have the right environment.  You’ve probably seen the image of a fallen tree that adapted, and all of its leaves began to grow on only one side of the tree toward the sunshine.
Don’t forget the lessons you’ve learned.  As simple as it was, I wasn’t even listening to the advice I had just given.  Learn from yourself and others.  You don’t need to reinvent the wheel.
You are made to heal.  There is an incredible power housed in you that was breathed into you when you were conceived.  Your nerve system experiences the world around you and adapts, or doesn’t.  If your brain doesn’t receive correct and accurate information about your environment, there is no way it can respond properly.  A healthy functioning nerve system determines how well you heal when stresses arise.

  • Dr. Neil and the staff Deb and Sue were very helpful with dealing with my issues. I went in with a lower back pain and has been healing pretty well. I have noticed the adjustments and home exercise not only helped with the pain but also helped with my digestion issues such as bloating. They were very accommodating whenever I needed a change in visits.Overall a great place to get yourself healed.

  • Their philosophy of health and well being is encouraging, optimistic and realistic. I appreciate the idea of leading a healthy lifestyle and preventing illness rather than simply treating the symptoms of ailments. Also, there are times unexpected benefits to chiropractic care. I wholeheartedly recommend Ancaster Family Chiropractic.

  • Dr. Neil and the admin staff have been a pleasure to deal with. I was referred to Ancaster Family chiro by a family member when I was dealing with severe back pain to the point that I couldn’t stand up straight. After the first adjustment I was shocked by the difference I could feel right away. As someone without a health benefit plan, Dr Neil was very accommodating in finding an affordable plan for me. I have been a client now for almost 6 months and can honestly say that I feel the biggest difference. Do yourself a favour and try these folks out, you’ll thank yourself later!
