Hi, this is Dr. Tim Twombly a practicing Chiropractor here at Irvine Spine and Sport.
The last time we talked, we talked about energy and how important is to have energy.
Energy is what we require first to pretty much accomplish everything we want to do during the day and there’s things that interfere with our energy, things that steal our energy or take our energy.
Those things can be the stresses of day to day life, the challenges of professional life, problems that just don’t want to go away, how you physically feel. Things like medication may benefit you in many ways, but they have side effects and it can rob you of your energy.
What we are talking about today, how do we get more energy to do what we need to do?
Again, as we talked about before. The goal of Chiropractic is to remove interference from your nervous system. Chiropractic doesn’t do things to you, so much as remove blockages and interference to your energy.
I wanted to talk a little bit about that, how do we get not just the energy but abundant energy or more energy. It’s really a simple formula.
Here we go, there’s our formula. So, this is the formula for Adaptation developed by Hans Selye, who is the guy that came up with this thing called “The Adaptation” theory. How we use our energy and how we get better.
“A” stands for Adaptation. As you’re going along in day to day life you have a level of adaptation. There’s only so much resilience that you have, so much energy that you have. From that, you subtract each of these stresses. A stress could be what we talked about dealing with chronic pain. You know you can go on and on. SSS – these are all different stresses. Sn means, all the other stresses. So all those things, what has to happen is, you have the capacity to adapt but if you have to subtract this number. You can’t take more stresses out in your level of adaptation. Otherwise, you don’t have any energy at all. What Chiropractors do – is we maximize this “A”. We can’t always make all these problems go away. Everybody’s got things to do with challenges to face but when Chiropractors adjust you. What they’re doing – they’re expanding your ability to access more adaptation. As we remove interference from your body what happens is this “A” expands. That way at the end of the day this number is not even close to zero you have lots left over. That left over part is what you can add to the lives of other people is what you can do to work on your dreams. That’s what we really want to do for you here at Irvine Chiropractic. Hope you remember this and take this to heart.
