Barger Chiropractic of Folsom views health as more than just the absence of disease. Health should be viewed as an evolving state or process that that starts at birth and continues until we die. The healthcare crisis that is now raging throughout our country is causing people to ask some pointed questions about the type of care they are receiving and what changes are needed to the current model of health care.
We have been taught since childhood that if we have no symptoms, we are well. The advertising media has preconditioned us to believe that all we need to do is “pop this pill” any time a symptom appears and all will be cured. Unfortunately, many have been brainwashed into thinking which drug or medication will work “stronger” or “faster” instead of questioning whether we should be taking them at all.
We often only hide the problem or symptom by medicating it. We also do things to fool ourselves into believing we are well, such as attributing symptoms to “just getting older”, avoiding activities that cause pain or not eating foods that cause distress. This approach to health is essentially masking or avoiding the symptoms, rather than attempting to identify the underlying cause of the body’s malfunction.
Dr. Barger has had additional training to coach interested patients in obtaining adequate nutrition, water, rest, exercise, positive mental attitude and a properly functioning nervous system to reach optimum health.
