Right and Responsibility
You’re no doubt familiar with the basic human rights penned by Thomas Jefferson. Our Creator did indeed bless us with Life, freedom and the ability to pursue happiness. But when it comes to your healthcare, it’s important not to confuse rights with responsibilities. For example,
• While you have the RIGHT to eat at any restaurant that suits your taste – You are RESPONSIBLE for choosing healthy items on the menu to fuel your body properly.
• While you have the RIGHT to sit on the couch and watch football all day – You are RESPONSIBLE for exercising regularly, so your body doesn’t become lethargic and sickly.
• While you have the RIGHT to go bungee jumping, ride roller coasters or take up cage fighting – You are RESPONSIBLE for keeping your spine in alignment (free of subluxation interference), so your nerve system can clearly orchestrate the all the physiological processes needed to keep you alive.
Yes, we all have the unalienable right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. But only YOU can be held responsible for preserving and maintaining your health. Yes, your Creator gave you the breath of Life, a body and an innate intelligence to govern them all. But it’s up to YOU – not your insurance company, your primary physician or your political party – to guard them well.
