Is Your “Check Engine” Light On?

If your car suddenly starts flashing a check engine light and you fix that “symptom” by putting a piece of electrical tape over the light, did that really fix the problem with your car? Of course not, it just keeps you from being bothered by it…temporarily. But by doing that, what you’re really doing is guaranteeing that your car will break down at some point in the future. The same holds true for your health! If you have an illness or disease, but you medicate it so you don’t experience any symptoms, do you still have the illness? The answer is, of course, YES! The goal of all medication, prescription or over-the-counter, is to make us “feel” better, but it does absolutely NOTHING to fix the problem. It’s just masking the symptom so we don’t feel the pain. Unfortunately, it’s also increasing the chemical stress in your body, which inevitably ends up causing more problems. So instead of fixing your original problem, you’ve just created more. So how do you get to the source of the illness so you can fix it? Chiropractic care focuses on helping your nervous system function at its optimal level, by removing any interference, called subluxations. When your nervous system is functioning properly, the rest of your body will run like a well-oiled machine because your nervous system feeds every other system in your body. So whether you’re experiencing auto-immune disorders like thyroid disease or lupus, chronic migraine headaches, musculoskeletal or structural pain, irritable bowel syndrome, or any other host of health issues, if your nervous system is functioning properly, those issues will be dramatically affected. At Stanmore Chiropractic, we offer chiropractic care for your whole family to get truly well, from the inside, out. We also offer a host of complementary therapies to aid in your wellness journey including acupuncture, podiatry, and massage therapy. So if you live in the Harrow, Middlesex area, we hope you’ll call us to schedule a consultation to see how we can help get you – and your family – on the road to true health! 020 8954 8311
