This month we want to talk to you about "GAP" or G.A.P. It is something we all have, and it stands for General Adaptive Potential.
Have you ever noticed that some people get sick while others don't? Ever notice that some people get colds every winter, or some kids miss school a lot whole others never do? This is all related to an individual's General Adaptive Potential.
Some of Chiropractic's principles focus on a concept known as "The Limitations of Matter". This refers to the conditions necessary for a biological system to survive or thrive. We are a biological system! I guess an extreme example of this would be that even a very healthy person would die if they were left naked outside in sub zero temperatures overnight. There is a limit to what we can adapt to. This is the "Limitation of Matter".
In life, the experience isn't usually so extreme. We all experience some degrees of negative stress in 3 dimensions; Physical, Bio-Chemical and Psychological. But these stresses are usually not so overwhelming that they result in instant death. Many times, however, it is enough so that our body cannot fully process the negative stress and, as a result, it reduces our experience and expression of life. The result is that our health diminishes and, if this is unresolved, the quality and quantity of our life is reduced.
The good news is, you can improve you GAP and thereby increase the ability of your body to manage negative stress. Chiropractic care, healthy exercise, proper nutrition, rest and positive mindset are simply the best ways to accomplished this.
The goal is far beyond surviving, it is about thriving! It is more than just "getting by"; it is about having an extraordinary experience in life. If you have been living badly for a long time, I understand it will take a lot to reclaim your life. Your GAP is narrowed.
The beautiful thing is that your body is more than a machine-it has life that flows through it, it can re-create itself! And that is exactly what we want to partner with you and your family to help you achieve the highest state of health possible through Wellness Chiropractic care!
