Neuroscientists have stated that gratitude acts like a natural “cure” for things like anxiety, depression, and anger. Said another way, it is hard for our mind or brain to be thankful and stressed out at the same time.

- When we are positive and thankful, our neurology and biochemistry will shift to promote wellness.
Unfortunately, too many people nowadays are trying an “outside-in approach” to managing stress and other health related issues. We shovel medications into our mouths or expect someone or something else to fix our stuff (cuss word intentionally withheld).
Truth is this…
Nothing has more potential or promise than a natural side effect free “inside-out approach” to health and wellness. (like chiropractic care)
