Informative Discussion Series on Genuine Health
Drs. Tom and Laura Gross, Mills River Family Chiropractic
/ ABC Learning Lab
One of the most important roles of a doctor is as an
educator on health.At mills River Family Chiropractic we have searched
for ways to bring honest, balanced and insightful information promoting
health, wellness and healing.To date we have found THE GOOD LIFE our
most effective venue in this endeavor.We have been offering regular
monthly informative discussions on the topic of AD/HD to help the community
understand that there are important interventions which can genuinely
help in healing children of this often devastating condition aside from
the typical drug interventions.There are many subjects I find myself
covering with people to help them understand what is meant by health
and what the body requires to obtain and maintain health.I have often
wanted to write a booklet on health.Time allowing I will write a section
for each topic and give handouts during the upcoming discussions, thus
the booklet is born.
Everyone in our culture has been exposed to the disposable,
quick fix, I want it now mentality.Television, radio, magazines, newspapers
and billboards everywhere reinforce this message suggesting what you
should expect and accept regarding health.As a result of this “programming” there
is a serious philosophical dilemma for most people when they are faced
with the necessity of making the kind of real-life choices that effect
their lifestyle and can have the power to regain their health and get
their life back on track.
The Informative Discussion Series on Genuine Health
and Healing is intended to help people become aware of the kind of real-life
choices that have the power to help them regain and maintain their health.Each
of us is unique and when possible I would like to introduce simple yet
powerful techniques which can be used to help people make the correct
choices for their unique health needs.
Natural Health and Healing techniques are a part of
traditional wisdom worldwide.Somehow in our disposable, quick fix, I
want it now mentality we are quickly losing the traditions of wisdom
which we have passed down generations before.
Common sense would suggest if there is a problem
then the solution should consider several things;
If there are obstacles remove them.
If there are some things missing then replace them.
If there is something broken then repair it.
If there is something out of balance reset it.
If there is a rut or a wrong path that has been formed
then reprogram it.
The wheels of wellness traverse all areas of your
life and leave no path untouched.
Natural health traditions often consider the balance
of some-ones entire life. In order to consider wellness honestly you
must take in the bigger picture of your life.This concept does not suit
itself well to consumerism so we have been sold a consumable version
which does not remotely resemble genuine health yet is referred to as
It is my passion to bring people to a place of genuine
healing.I am constantly searching for and learning new ways to improve
what I can offer in this endeavor.I do not profess or contend to have
the one true way, method or complete knowledge.I do offer a considerably
more comprehensive view and enlarged model of health and have a passion
to share whatever I can to edify and uplift our families and our community.
This article kicked off a series of public health
discussions called the Informative Discussion Series on
Genuine Health and Healing.
