"A negative thought can kill you faster than a bad germ." I just heard this quote today. It was spoken by, Dr. Tony Jimenez.
So many patients frequently ask us what causes their headache, back pain, pain in their shoulders, and neck pain? The answer is stress.
There are 3 types of stress that can affect the human body; chemical, physical, and emotional.
1. Chemical - processed junk foods, alcohol, smoking, pesticides, prescription medication
2. Physical - motor vehicle accident, sports injury, prolonged sitting, poor posture, improper lifting
3. Emotional stress - negative thinking, constant worrying, poor attitude, work stress
So, the next time you have negative, lingering thoughts try to focus on something good, instead. Take a deep breath, and tell yourself that everything will eventually work out. Think, "this too shall pass." Don't let that negative thought stick around any longer than required and eat away at your health, causing unnecessary aches and pains.
If you find yourself in a situation that you can't let go and de-stress, maybe you are overdue for a chiropractic adjustment. Chiropractic can free up the nervous system and ease the discomfort that you might be feeling from carrying around that unwanted stress, helping you to deal with life a little easier.
