Our Health is Becoming out of Balance

We have been brought up and raised in a society that tells us we we are considered ‘healthy’ unless symptoms inform us otherwise. The common mantra I often hear is “If I feel well, I must be healthy; if I feel sick, I must be UN-well”

While I agree that there is a place and time for drugs and surgery in some people’s circumstances, this belief has eroded the question ‘WHY?’—‘WHY am I getting these headaches? WHY is my infant unable to stop crying? WHY does my child constantly have a cold and ear infection? When the question of ‘WHY’ arises it must be addressed by looking into how aligned or how out of balance is your body?

Signs of a Body out of Balance

An imbalance to your body can be unveiled in a variety of ways. Some of the ways that I have our practice members evaluate their health and to determine if it is in a state of imbalance is the following:


  • Lethargic
  • Irritable
  • Bloated
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Lack of motivation

  • Recurring minor illnesses
  • Hyperactive
  • Overly fussy and easily agitated
  • Constipation
  • Oversensitivity to environmental noises

While this is a short list, it gives an indication of things to note when going through your day. If you or your child note any of the above, it may be a sign of a system that has become out of balance.

As a chiropractor my job is to analyze the system that coordinates every function of the body. By aligning a system that has become out-of-balance and restoring proper function, the body is better able to deal with day to day stressors and respond in a proper manner. It’s when a system is out of balance that problems can begin.

If you or someone you know may have a system that has become out of balance, get them checked by a chiropractor and give the body a chance by aligning the body.
