Since the 1940’s, the American Dream of Health, Love and Money has shaped us to believe that broke, alone, and diseased (BAD) is our current American Dream. Is that what you want for your future?
Let me explain and start with money. I am reviewing Dave Ramsey’s Financial University information and in one of the disc’s Dave was discussing that prior to 1950, it was considered a sin for an individual to have debt. So families lived together while people worked and saved their money to afford a house, car etc… So what happened? 1951 the first credit card, Diners Club, came out followed by the “New Business” of financial services. Here we are 65+ years later and if a person has no debt, they are the exception. Mortgages, car loans, credit cards and now student loans. Have we progressed or regressed and at what cost to our personal lives? This paradigm has cost us relationships, money, health and PEACE. Therefore, our current paradigm is not working for the American Dream as the cost is too high.
Love is an integral part of us as Human Beings yet the data suggests we don’t know what makes us happy and content. It appears the concept of having more is not the answer because we collectively have more “things” than ever before. Divorce rates moved in 1940 was 20%, 1946 was 43% and 1980 was 52%. The factors are many from individual roles in marriage, to both people working full time and health/financial stressors. One thing for sure is this paradigm over the last 100 years IS NOT WORKING FOR US. Seek quality relationships based on trust, laughter and giving of yourself and the peace you seek will appear, a new American Dream.
Write down on a blank sheet of paper 2 numbers. #1 at the top and #5 half way down. Now what is your 1 year goal and 5 year goal? Write it down and create a goal. There is 1 thing you MUST have to reach your goals…..HEALTH. No exceptions. Now apply the NEED of HEALTH to every aspect of your life. Relationships, career, finances and we as human beings…it all starts with your health. So how is this health thing going for you? 90%+ of Americans..not so well it appears.
Look at the statistics from 1950 to current and more specifically the chronic diseases. Cancer, Heart Disease, Diabetes, Autism, Alzheimer’s and Dementia. Have those numbers dropped or increased? YES, INCREASED. We have entered a “health care paradigm” that has not given us the results each of us desire in 65+ years YET we continue to support it and WILL NOT entertain another delivery model. In fact, the current paradigm is legislated to continue the monopoly at a federal level. Now…Google the definition of Insanity, this is our current system. It addresses Acute care very well and there are time for pharmaceutical or surgical intervention which accounts for 10% of the health care system but what about the 85% that is chronic disease? The US is terrible at chronic disease so let’s change the American Dream to one that is based on restoring normal function.
HEALTH is defined as 100% function.
When the Lord created you, he started with a hierarchy within you.
FIRST: brain and spine. The Central Nervous System controls and regulates the action of every cell in your body, every cell and the Immune System in particular is controlled by the Autonomic Nervous System which is housed in the brain stem (which descends thru the skull, thru the first cervical vertebrae and half way thru the second cervical vertebrae). This is critical because a misaligned C1 vertebrae or a subluxated vertebrae will put pressure on the brain stem thereby reducing the function of the brain stem. Removing subluxation is the profession of Chiropractic.
SECOND: Immune System is controlled by the CNS (100%) and the health of the GUT (70%). Remove sugars, processed foods and GMO’s while eating a plant based, high fat, moderate protein and low carbohydrate diet. Plan every meal at a minimum of 1 day prior to ensure success.
Folks…address your priorities…HEALTH, LOVE AND MONEY. Find a Chiropractor that will get you healthy. Pour all you are into your spouse and family. It’s all about time and focus so get after it. Create a life of taking care of your needs vs wants, make “dividend decisions” and not “bankruptcy decisions”. “Plan your work, work your plan” and DREAM. DREAM about the things that matter. DREAM about OPTIMAL HEALTH, DREAM about the greatest marriage the greatest family relationships and the most awesome time spent with them. DREAM about you managing your money vs money managing you.
