Heed message of them there bones

For year’s archeologists have studied the remains of humans, mammals, birds and fish. The basis for deciphering how they lived, what they ate, etc. came from them there bones. Today forensic investigators can still decipher cause of death from remains that are just skeletal in form. The flesh, organs and such have deteriorated and what remains are teeth and them there bones. I know you are all aware of these sciences so what is my point? My point is that we are not applying these sciences to our current daily health care. And I am not referring to medical health care. I truly believe that we have been kept from two beneficial methods of health care by the medical professionals, researchers, insurance providers and pharmaceutical companies. Those two beneficial methods being dental care and chiropractic care. When was the last time your physician examined your sore throat and made mention to the fact you have some serious dental health? I remember it was our family physician in the 1960s who told my folks besides having strep throat I needed to be seen by a dentist. How many of you have gone to your doctor with a sore back only to be given pain and muscle prescriptions? Teeth are bone-like structures. That is why they remain with the skeletal form. I personally know an individual whose life-threatening illness went into remission after complete dental care and remains so. Chiropractors go through extensive training on the skeletal system, the spine, bone joints, nerve endings, muscle tissue and their interaction with our organs. I have sought chiropractic care for 30 years and the results have been amazing. Not only is my pain and discomfort relieved but adjustments benefit my overall health. Instead of supporting expensive medical health care I recommend to anyone to pursue both dental care and chiropractic care. Years from now when our remains are examined without our flesh and organs science will still be able to decipher how we lived and died. They will study and exam our teeth and them there bones.
