What Is Wellness?

asd

According to the World Health Organization, “Health is more than the absence of disease. Health is a state of optimal well-being.” Optimal well-being is a concept of health that goes beyond the curing of illness to one of achieving wellness.

Achieving optimal wellness requires balancing the various aspects of the whole person. These aspects are physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. This broader approach to health involves the integration of all of these aspects and is an ongoing process.

Many of us have been brought up to believe that our health depends solely on the quality of the healthcare we receive. The truth is, your health is your responsibility. You are the only person who can make the lifestyle decisions that contribute to your well-being. You are the one who must take the steps to preserve your health and promote your wellness. Only you have the power to create wellness for yourself.

Your power lies in the choices you make every day on your own behalf. If you react out of habit or fixed attitudes, you may not be using your choices wisely to create wellness in your life. A comfortable, healthy balance between your physical, mental and emotional aspects doesn’t happen accidentally. Someone has to be in charge, and that someone is always you.

Your behavior and the choices you make in your life affect your health. You can choose to do more of what’s good for you and to do less of what is harmful. You can choose to learn more about your health and the variety of healthcare options available and you can choose how you will react in a given situation.

A good first step to achieving optimal wellness is to simply accept yourself as you are at this moment, knowing that tomorrow is a new day and that you can always make new choices that will take you closer to the wellness that you desire.

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Main Street Chiropractic has been and continues to be a major part of my health and wellness. When you walk in, you are welcomed by the wonderful staff. I am always greeted with a smile and a heartfelt hello. Throughout the office, you feel a sense of joy, peace, patience, kindness and goodness. These are some of the fruits of the Spirit found in Galatians 5:22. The reason I say this is because Dr. Baird and his staff are Christians. I know that Dr. Baird and his staff serve with the gifts and talents that they have been blessed with. Healing is physical, mental, emotional and spiritual at Main Street Chiropractic."
    -Connie V. / Glen Carbon, IL

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
