With Valentine's Day approaching I would be remiss if I didn't remind everyone, and although it may be a cliche, it is certainly true that the greatest love of all is the love of being nice to yourself.
Unfortunately self love is hard a lot of times because we are so busy doing things for others whether it is at work or at home. It could be for your loved ones or other members of your family or perhaps your elderly parents etc. All those reasons, although important and real, often get in the way of doing things for ourselves that are important and that sustain our health.
What also happens is that the constant doing for others affects our health in two ways: the physical and the mental. There is no denying the mind/body connection- if we neglect one the other suffers and therefore we are not living to the optimal health we can and should be.
So, I implore all of you (and for myself included) to keep working on being diligent with both the mental and the physical parts of your health. Chiropractic can certainly help with that but I can adjust people until the cows come home but if they are not in a good mental state then their body is just not going to respond.
Please keep this in mind. Love yourselves, love your loved ones, be nice to each other. Have a wonderful and loving Valentine's day and always remember and never forget Dr. Ray is always here for you.
Yours in good health,
Dr. Ray and staff
