Gard Wellness

our health philosophy

Our bodies are self-healing, self-regulating organisms.  We have an innate ability to heal, regenerate and thrive when we operate in peak state.  We are moved away from peak state by many things which we can summarize with 3 T’s.  Thoughts, traumas, and toxins.

Thoughts – our stress, our mindset, our internal dialogue, the way we talk to our bodies, they way we ‘think’ we are physically, it all matters. Our cells are listening. Our thoughts create patterns of stress which can put us in fight or flight. Prolonged stress manifests physically with pain, headaches and more. Chiropractic care gets your body out of fight or flight. Not only does it address pain, but more importantly it helps your nervous system reset. 

Traumas – these can be as big as a major car accident, or as little as poor ergonomics at your work station.  It can onset as a baby with a forceful birth, or manifest later in life after years of repetitive motion, poor posture and more.  Chiropractic care works by locating the areas of greatest stress in the spine and restoring their motion and position.  When this is achieved, the nerve signals moving down the spine are operating at peak state and the body self-regulates and self-heals.

Toxins – our bodies are exposed daily to thousands of toxins from our food, to our body products and our environment. These exposures create a state of inflammation and dis-ease in the body. The ongoing chemical assault can put our nervous system into dysregulation, and impairs your body’s ability to self-regulate and self-heal.  Chiropractic care helps regulate your nervous system, thus helping your body heal and adapt to ongoing changes in it’s environment.
