Life is a Marathon
So how are you doing? Did your habits of 2007 render you Happier? Healthier? In Better Shape? More Energetic? Excited? Or are you starting over again in 2008?
This newsletter deals with the idea that " Life is a Marathon"
If you are still trying to find that magic pill, lotion, food, or work out forget it. In fact if you watch T. V. at all you know that the number of drugs coming out is increasing everyday. The side affects are actually comical and the overall health status of our country, especially our children is in severe jeopardy. The wonder drug of last month is now on the top of the list to avoid and attorneys are soliciting your business to determine if your were harmed or injured due to taking these so called "Medicines". Too many children are not exercising, are severely overweight and actually stand a chance of either not outliving their parents or not living nearly as long.
Truth is that you need to understand how your body works and get "FIT" for life. LIFE IS A MARATHON. You need to understand that you are the caretaker of your body and health and you need to learn how diet, exercise, rest, posture, and stress affect you.
Now even though life is a marathon, you don't have to run one! Thank God for that, as I hate to run. But I love to ride my stationary bike and I have been for the last 15 plus years 3-5 times per week. So the point is that you need to find something that you will do at least 3 times per week for 30 minutes and DO IT! You need to realize that no matter how good you shop, cook and plan for healthy meals unless you are taking food supplements you are undernourished. Our soil is depleted, food is radiated, loaded with chemicals, and due to our fast paced life we often eat out and therefore do not get the farm fresh foods that grandma and grandpa use to eat. Your body is under pressure. Physical pressure from gravity, poor posture, bad mattresses, bad ergonomic work- stations, and work itself. Life itself is STRESSFUL or haven't you noticed! We live in this beautiful paradise called San Diego, but with that comes high expense for everything and the "price" we pay is PRESSURE. This pressure is translated into pain, tight muscles, headaches, fatigue, insomnia, lack of energy, and lack of excitement for living.
So what's the answer? The answer is to have a plan that includes exercise, diet, food supplements, rest, chiropractic, massage, and relaxation and do it consistently for a lifetime. Your plan should not vary from year to year. Maybe to add to it or tweak it a little, you don't need a New Year's Resolution, you need to be consistent for the rest of your life. If there is a magic solution, I just gave it to you. Take a look at how much of the "bad" stuff you are doing and weigh it against how you look and feel, and if your honest with yourself you already know what you need to do. JUST DO IT!
Start to exercise, reduce coffee, sugar, and fat, quite multitasking constantly and RELAX. Read a good book and turn off the television. Increase your water consumption, increase your sleep or reduce it, take some good food supplements and decide that you are going to get fit, get pain free, get off or reduce so called " medicines" and enjoy this life.
I have lived this for twenty- five years I know it works. If it works for my family and me it will work for you and your family. There is nothing special about us we just stick with the plan. We get adjusted, we work out, take nutritional supplements, get massages and utilize acupuncture when needed.
To make this PREVENTIVE CARE financially available I continue to offer the best adjustment at a very reasonable price as well as many different family programs. If the time is right for you and your family to start wellness care please give me a call, I would love to answer your questions and go over our programs with you.
Remember we still love you if all you want is relief care! Walk-ins Welcome!
GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY, HAPPY NEW YEAR 2008 — DR. MARK
