As I have been recently reading ‘The Wellness and Prevention Paradigm’ by James Chester, a few points have jumped out at me.
What we call healthcare these days should most certainly be known as “sickness care”. Simply because our healthcare is only designed to treat symptoms of chronic illness/sicknesses rather than offer to treat the CAUSE of these illness which is inevitably lifestyle choices such as diet, exercise and thoughts.
More emphasis should be on encouragement of people to move better, eat better and think better as a pose to consuming prescription drugs to reduce symptoms people are getting from NOT exercising, NOT eating healthily and NOT thinking positively.
These are all things we are trying to encourage at our Port Talbot Chiropractic clinic.
