Violating nature’s laws
Dear Editor:The old adage, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of care,” may be most appropriate when it concerns your health. It is obvious that health care costs and insurance premiums continue to rise in many areas. The outlook for health care is not all “doom and gloom,” though. There is a beacon of light that may end up being the solution for many.The answer can be summed up in two words: responsibility and prevention!Many people fall into the trap of thinking that the insurance industry and medical system will take care of them, should they become ill. While being lulled into this complacency, many feel that they are entitled to health care. This kind of thinking has created a very unhealthy and expensive environment.Lifestyle choices and habits are significant factors that determine our own health status. By taking responsibility for how we treat out bodies, it is possible to significantly affect how healthy we will be.Our lives have more demands and stresses than ever before. These stressors include physical (structural), biochemical, nutritional, mental, emotional and electromagnetic stress.There are ways to enable our bodies to cope in more effective ways with these stressors. They include re-establishing structural integrity – the foundation of health. In addition, one can rebalance the electromagnetics, support the adrenal glands, replenish the body with proper nutrition, remove heavy metals and other toxins from the body, and release abnormal and disempowering emotional patterns.The sooner we accept responsibility for our own health and stop buying into the victim mentality, the sooner we can take steps to improve the quality of our health and minimize or prevent the onset of disease.Remember, rarely does a disease occur unexpectedly. It is a result of constant violation of nature’s laws. Spreading and accumulating of such violations transpire suddenly in the form of a disease – it only seems sudden. Take responsibility for your health. It is no one else’s responsibility!Dr. Tom Lankering, D.C.Aspen
