Episode 12 - Who Owns Your Health (Part 2)
Who Owns Your Health (Part 2)
In this all-new episode of The MaxLiving Podcast, hosts Dr. Nick Wilson and Dr. Traci Gross continue the discussion of who owns your health, and answer just how you can start to take control of your personal health journey.
If you have ever wondered if there is a singular thing that you can do to improve your health, this week’s podcast may be able to answer that for you, once and for all. When looking for the source of our health (and the source of our illness) Dr. Nick, Dr. Traci, and other skilled chiropractors like them, look to the spine.
The spine houses the central nervous system, which Chiropractors believe may be the source of wellness and illness alike. When our nervous system is healthy, it means our body is communicating at 100%. When our body is communicating, that means it’s functioning. When our spines are unhealthy, it could mean an unhealthy nervous system, as a misaligned or degrading spine could place immense stress on the spinal cord and the nerves housed within it.
Unfortunately, in a system where Chiropractic still exists on the fringes of health in the minds of some, this knowledge has gone unnoticed, and many have yet to take their health into their own hands and pursue the natural health possibilities of Chiropractic care.
As Dr. Nick and Dr. Traci discuss, it is normal for them to see new patients that have suffered years and even decades of health concerns and frustrating symptoms to no avail. In this episode, Dr. Nick speaks to a particular client who came to him after 20 years of constant headaches. After years of prescriptions and medications failed to cure her, she took her health into her own hands and pursued Chiropractic care. When she visited Dr. Nick, his x-rays exposed the issue in her upper spinal column, and he was able to create a personalized treatment plan to help her. The result? She lost 13 pounds in 3 months, reversed her diabetes, and stopped getting habitual headaches. In other words, once she took an active role in deciding how she would pursue her health, she was able to find the treatment she needed to heal!

As Dr. Nick says, it has become all too common for people to “want health passively,” when health has to be an active choice that we make. Dr. Nick and Dr. Traci discuss the difference between passive and active care, otherwise known as reactive care, and proactive care.
With reactive care, we seek to stifle symptoms as they arise. In other words, we wait until we are sick to try to be healthy. With proactive care, however, we seek to reach our optimal health and maintain it, before illness takes over. With proactive care, you are the one in control of your own health.
In this episode, your hosts go on to discuss why taking control of your health is so essential. When you lose your health, Dr. Nick and Dr. Traci argue that you lose much more in your life as well. As Dr. Nick says, “when you’re in pain, you’re a different person,” leading people to experience problems in their work lives, with their relationships, and more as a result of the emotional impact of poor health.
In this episode, find out just how you can take control of your health and why it matters, and get help doing it!
