  Your Way to Wellness

Wellness

 

                                 Death                                                                                                                     Health

 

 

Since our bodies and health are ever changing, where we fall on this continuum is also always changing.  What is important is the direction you are headed.  Are you moving toward health, or are you moving closer to death?  Your lifestyle choices will determine the answer to this question.

                                                                                            

 

 


The doctors at Rhinebeck Chiropractic focus on the whole body, the environment it lives in and the lifestyle choices you make.  Nutrition, exercise, alignment and healthy thinking are all lifestyle factors that we at Rhinebeck Chiropractic can help with.  It only makes sense that your doctor

address these areas if he or she truly has wellness on their mind.

Merriam-Webster’s dictionary defines wellness as the quality or state of being  in good health, especially as an actively sought goal.   The World Health Organization defines health as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity

 

By definition wellness is the goal of being healthy and having optimal function of every tissue, cell and organ in the body.  It should be noticed that at no time are the words feeling good in either definition.  This is because how we are feeling is often a poor determinant of how we are functioning. 

 

 

Furthermore,  health should be looked at on a continuum (see illustration below).  On one side of the continuum is death, the other side is health.  Everyone who is living falls somewhere on this continuum.
