Your Healthy Tidbits; Volume 12 Issue 1
Worry is the result of thinking and imagining what might happen in the future. If you have planned and prepared, you can have reasonable expectations about the future. Good action today will produce good living tomorrow. So, instead of imagining all the bad things that might happen to you in the future based on your fear, start imagining things working out. You have to develop a “what if it does go right and works out” expectancy if you want to be the winner you were born to be. ziglar.com
Recently, the Financial Times reported that Purdue Pharma had received a patent to treat opioid addiction. This is the same drug manufacturer that created the highly addictive OxyContin. You heard that right… the organization responsible for our current opioid crisis would now be helping to end it… and making LOADS of money doing so. The patent is for a new version of buprenorphine, which is designed to control drug cravings and is often given to those who are addicted to heroin or opioid painkillers. ‘While opioids have always been known to be useful in pain treatment, they also display an addictive potential,’ the patent states. ‘Thus, if opioids are taken by healthy human subjects with a drug-seeking behavior, they may lead to psychological, as well as physical dependence. These usually undesired characteristics of opioids can, however, become important in certain scenarios such as drug substitution therapies for drug addicts.'” While Purdue Pharma has taken financial hits from several lawsuits and has stopped (they say) promoting opioids, do we really want them to benefit from the problem they willingly created? healthnutnews.com

Some people who have been to chiropractors before say that they're feeling good now so they don’t need to get their spines checked. “If it’s not broken, why fix it?” The fact is there may be a misaligned (subluxated) vertebra in your spine interfering with the proper function of the nerve system. There is something “broken”. The inborn wisdom of your body (your brain and nerve system), which controls and coordinates the function in the body, is simply not working as it should. Do you feel the brain telling your stomach how to digest, or your lungs how to breathe, or your immune system how to function? We only actually feel a small amount of our nervous system. Just because it is not noticeable, it doesn’t mean that dysfunction is not occurring or that the damage is not accumulating within the body. How many years of accumulated nerve dysfunction, caused by unrecognized spinal misalignments, does it take for a heart problem to manifest? Or, for a stomach problem to show up? You wouldn’t avoid oil changes because your car has no symptoms, would you? That's why it's best to have your spine checked regularly for vertebral subluxations even if it does not appear to be “broken!” chiropracticfortheworld.org
