Thoughts determine the quality of life – Tips for new patients (Part 8)

“The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts” – Marcus Aurelius

Three questions to stimulate further healing

Question one: What are you thinking about lately?

Question two: What challenges are you facing?

Question three: What work does your body require to get you to the place you want to be?

Would you like to get more than what you’ve gotten so far from this chiropractic experience here at Life In Alignment Chiropractic?

How to get more from your experience of chiropractic care

Step one: Answer the questions above with the first gut level responses you have. Don’t try to smooth over a gut level honest answer with some kind of qualifying statement.

Step two: Decide if you know what you need to do based on the information you have now.

Step three: Talk to someone who has already done what you want to do, or who can connect you with someone who has already done what you want to do, or who at the very least, has the information you feel like you’re missing.

If you think I can help, then I invite you to talk about it with me at your next visit, or via email.

And then there’s a final step. Keep up the good work of maintaining your spinal care schedule as you slowly taper down.

A couple of things are possible:

We will complete your care plan (if we’re doing more than just symptoms relief) without any major hiccups, or an act of healing or act of life will put you two steps forward and one step back, and we will trouble-shoot as necessary and then taper down again.

That’s just they way this thing works.

Finally, one more thought: People rarely stumble over boulders; it’s the pebbles that get us.

Dealing with the little things before they become big things is ideal. But sometimes it’s hard to see those little things for what they are. Don’t underestimate the power of internal stress to impact your everyday healing potential.

Strategies (besides spinal care) that help you manage that stress (healthily) are just as important as the other things you intentionally do for your health.
