adore life - Family Chiropractic WellnessWHAT IS WELLNESS?

Wellness is a modern term to describe high performance and healthy balance of a person's mind, body and spirit.

Wellness recognises the synergy between the mind, body and spirit and seeks to establish and strengthen the capacity to have 100% function in these areas despite outside conditions.

There is mounting evidence that mental disharmony, mental stress and mental illness affects a person's physical health. There is a lot of anecdotal evidence that spiritual disharmony (or some would call it spiritual sickness) has a negative mind and body effect. And more commonly recogised is the effect of insufficient physical health on the mind and spirit for example how well can you think if you have constant back pain, how spiritual can you be while having a headache? So strengthening the "fitness" of any of the 3 areas can have a positive flow on effect to the other 2 areas. Altogether, when each area is fit, that individual should be robustly living a fulfilling, successful and purposeful life for a complete existence while alive (and potentially afterwards too depending on what spiritual path they have taken).

For example, look at the photo above here and put yourself in the man or woman's shoes. It might be a gloomy and cold winter day but you still feel positive, fulfilled and want to share love with people important to you so you go to the beach and play soccer with your family or friends even though other people say you should stay indoors and watch TV. You are fit so you feel energised playing the physical game to a high level for a length of time, you enjoy the challenge of skill and strategy of playing the game and you feel connected with yourself and family as well as whatever spiritual path you follow due to the gratefullness you have for spending such time.

Wellness has been a shift away from the traditional medical sickness paradigm which focuses on combating germs for instance and sees someone as healthy if they don't show signs of sickness. Wellness is about a whole human performing to their optimal function which in turn reduces the risk of sickness taking hold. Some medical critics of wellness say it is merely another term for homeostasis which is the property of a system to regulate variables so that internal conditions remain stable and relatively constant despite variations outside the system. This is incorrect on two points, the first of which is in that this tends to focus on the physical balance of the body unlike wellness which is also concerned with the mind and spirit as well as the body. The second point is that a homeostasis might be weak or shallow and easily disturbed, for example an unfit person might be relatively unaffected internally by walking at several speeds, slow, medium and fast, but as soon as they have to sprint their rapid build up of lactic acid and oxygen depletion shows that their system had balance but not a lot of tolerance.

This essentially boils down to the question of "who do you want to be?".

In a world increasing filled with various types and levels sickness, you have to fight for your inborn right to wellness. More people are appreciating these days that life is not about just surviving or struggling to get by but rather it is about getting the most out of life and experiencing the richness that life has to offer whether it's swimming with dolphins, raising a strong family, having a clear relationship with God or even giving a big lump sum of money to charity after achieving commercial success with a product or service that also helps society significantly.

If you want to be the person who is energetic, healthy, sharp of mind and has great relationships into their 80's then you need to minorly be advantaged by genetics and majorly be advantaged by your lifestyle and environment. You are the custodian of your mind, body and spirit, so doing the right sorts of things that lead to the maintenance of your vitality and youthful essence will mean you can be the sort of person that epitomises wellness.

It's clear that Western civilisation is not producing the high performance health in the 21st century that was dreamed about 100 years ago. For example, America and Australia have over 60% of its citizens overweight, lifestyle diseases are on the rise, more people have at least one chronic disease and the cost and burden of disease plus the ever increasing medical expenditure is economically unsustainable. 100 years ago it was thought that modern lifestyle, medical research and technology would provide a nirvana for physical health and society but while some research has provided definite benefits, overall, we are a stressed and fearful culture that misses out on accessing our innate wellness due to the lack of belief in nature and its millenia honed processes. We are designed to have fabulous lives with a mixture of hard work, love, purpose, vitality, faith, and a whole bunch of other supurlatives that people instinctively name when thinking of an ultimate existence freed from the problems, distractions and frustrations of the life we already know. The point of wellness is to access and emphasise nature's in built systems and create a more optimal environment on the outside so that the common problems of modern life are less evident and ideally not present.

The foundation for wellness is at least one teacher (doctor, practitioner, leader etc) that can guide the start of the process of becoming well in mind, body and soul. We obviously focus on the body with our service and what we bear in mind is a quote: “The superior physician helps before the early budding of the disease. The inferior physician begins to help when the disease has already developed.” Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Internal Medicine, Huang Ti Nei Ching Su Wen, 2697-2597 BC. At a time when we have decoded the complex sequences in our genes, we have yet to decipher the simple balances within ourselves. We treat aging as a bemoaning not a becoming. We have trampled our own time-tested truths in a frantic and flawed race against the clock. For which we have paid a terrible price - trading wisdom for wealth, awareness for appearance, and mastery for the momentary. The task is to chase the darkness of doubt out with the light of insight. This is what we aim to help you do.


Where we have gone wrong is by changing and or underutilising to much of natures natural systems and processes.

Bringing out the natural performance of the human is not a singular effort as we have many systems and layers to our being. There have been discoveries, developments and inventions related to this ranging from ancient art forms such as yoga to modern technology such as DNA repair through supplementation. What we have done is find the biggest techniques and methods for consistent optimisation of you and bring them together into a straegy for wellness.
