Stay Healthy for Yourself and Your Community

grateful woman with her hands on her heartSuffice it to say, Boulder has been through a lot over the past few years. The biggest tragedy just occurred in the Marshall Fire, with nearly 1000 homes destroyed. Add the massive instability due to COVID-19. The tragic mass shooting at King Soopers grocery store left Boulder County reeling. All of these many painful challenges have people feeling discouraged and helpless. Having the ability to adapt has never been more crucial.

Adaptability to Navigate Your Circumstances

It’s important that you know that being healthy and optimizing your health and adaptability is key to navigating your circumstances. The healthier and more resilient you are, the more you can adapt. When you’re less healthy and adaptive, the littlest change can knock you off course.

As your nervous system controls every system in your body, it’s vital to keep it well-tuned and healthy. The healthier you and your nervous system are, you can better adapt to stress and any circumstance. If your health is more compromised, it doesn’t take much for you to become very ill or hospitalized.

Fortifying Your Body’s Defenses

When it comes to health, it’s common to look for magic bullet solutions: take this vitamin, follow this diet, engage in this type of exercise, and you will never have problems. That, of course, is not true.

The good news is that adopting healthy lifestyle habits can help bolster your defenses, so you have a better chance of keeping serious sickness at bay. Here are some health recommendations for you:

  • Ensure you get good hydration
  • Exercise regularly
  • Eat the rainbow
  • Get good restorative sleep each night
  • Get adjusted

While none of these is a cure-all, when you spend time working toward your health in each of these areas, your health will improve. It doesn’t mean you won’t have problems, but your strong, healthy, well-aligned spine and nervous system, in the face of problems or when experiencing injuries, will recover better.

NetworkSpinal Care

Rather than fixing illness, the focus of NetworkSpinal (NS) care is optimizing your body’s ability to utilize its internal adaptive forces and internal energetic resources. Dr. Danny says, “When those are optimized, your body can eat stress for breakfast compared to being a victim of stress and moving from one challenge to the next, instead of struggling to maintain equilibrium. It’s important for you to have a well-rounded approach to your health because you want to be in an optimal health state, not just because you want to fix a condition. I call it having a gap of resilience versus a cup already overflowing, causing even the slightest thing to you over the edge into illness or injury!”

Standing Strong Together

Despite the devastation of the fires, COVID and the shooting, Colorado, and Boulder in particular, will recover. The “Boulder Strong” signs everywhere remind us that we have a strong sense of community and are resilient.

Dr. Danny says, “When we take care of ourselves, we can take care of each other through the devastating times through which we’ve been living. It’s a relief to see our community being so resilient. Keeping ourselves healthy can foster an even stronger Boulder!”
