I did something this year I thought I'd never do, something I SWORE I'd never do. Yet after doing it, I'm so glad I did. It was a wise decision, and has improved the life of my family for the better.
We bought a minivan!!
As with any car purchase at a dealership, making the deal was a bit of a chore...
Everyone wants to get the best deal possible. The salesman will put on a dog and pony show to try to get the most beneficial deal for them and the dealership, the buyer will hem and haw and sometimes feign reluctance so they can get a better deal, it's a dance as old as time. What's interesting is that a lot of dealerships are looking for ways to keep their prices up by offering other fringe benefits or value-added services; in our case we were offered two free oil changes. I negotiated two YEARS of free oil changes. Why are car dealerships offering maintenance at reduced fees or for free? Because folks understand the value of maintenance!
Imagine that you've paid $30,000 for a new vehicle. Shoot, make it $60,000 (it must be a NICE ride). What good would that vehicle be to you if you never changed the oil, never checked the transmission fluid, power steering fluid, coolant levels, brake fluid, got the tires rotated/balanced/aligned, etc? How long would your precision machine last if you didn't perform routine maintenance on it?
Within a few months, you'd be the proud owner of a $60,000 paperweight. The cost to repair the damage done due to lack of regular maintenance would be astronomical. You might as well buy a whole new vehicle, because the one ruined from neglect will never be the same, even if repaired.
Of course, you've probably figured out where I'm going with this now. Your body is far more valuable than a minivan, or any other vehicle for that matter (except for maybe a Bugatti, but hey! NOTHING is more valuable than a Bugatti. I digress...)
Your body is so much more valuable, so much more important than a car, yet people take FAR better care of their cars than they do their bodies. Why is that? Just like a car, if you don't maintain your body, you'll face catastrophic failure later in life. It's as inevitable as a seized up engine with no oil. A clean diet, a solid exercise plan, and regular chiropractic care are essential to a healthy life.
WITHOUT good nutrition, your cells won't receive the building blocks needed to replace your old, worn out cells.
WITH good nutrition, your cells are able to replicate more efficiently and effectively.
WITHOUT a solid exercise plan, your body will weaken and degrade over time.
WITH a solid, sound, safe exercise plan you can maintain muscle mass into old age.
WITHOUT regular chiropractic care, the nerve impulses that regulate every single function of your body run into interference and over time, dis-ease and dysfunction will manifest in the body, negatively affecting your health over time.
WITH regular chiropractic care, your nervous system is free of interference. Your exercise plan is more effective, and your cells are able to more effectively absorb the nutrients you feed your body.
