It is said that it is easier to stay well than to get well. That is very true. If you neglect the health or maintenance of anything it begins to break down. If you do not see the dentist periodically for your teeth will decay. If you neglect preventive maintenance in your vehicle it will break down. The same applies to your spine, your neuromusculoskeletal system, vascular and digestive systems, immune and endocrine systems. You are a fascinating and complicated biological machine and in order to maintain wellness you have to invest some resources in it.
