The simple act of deciding to be happier and focus on the positive will improve your health. Just as negative emotions can weaken the body's resistance level, positive emotions can give us strength, or at least allow our bodies to function normally. Therefore, the simple act of deciding to be happier and focus on the positive will improve your health. In fact, the phenomenon of your thoughts affecting your physical health is so strong that all medical studies have to be designed with it in mind. Researchers call this 'the placebo effect.'

Many people believe that the term 'placebo effect' means that the effect is only imagined - that it is not real. But this couldn't be further from the truth. Medical studies have to include a control group - people who receive placebos instead of the medicine being studied - because the simple act of people making the decision to take action to improve their health leads to measurable physical improvement in their condition. To determine the effects of a particular medicine, researchers have to measure the change in the group who underwent therapy and subtract out the amount of change seen in the placebo group. Otherwise, there is no way to know whether a particular treatment was beneficial or whether it was merely the change in attitude in the study subjects that made the difference. In many instances, the placebo effect turns out to be stronger than the treatment itself! The point is that if you want to have a healthy body you also have to have healthy thoughts and emotions. Just as it is important to avoid toxic chemicals, it is also necessary to avoid toxic thoughts to enjoy optimal health.

In fact, most experts agree that about 80 percent of all conversations we have are with ourselves. All too often, we talk to ourselves

  • "From Dr. Hudak right throughout the entire staff…The Best !!!"
    Craig K.
  • "I went to chiropractic care because I was in terrible pain in my lower back. I was having this issue for about three months, then I saw an orthopedic doctor but was not a surgery candidate. I then had some physical therapy but unfortunately it did not help and I was told to change my line of work. I had to change from full time to modified duty at work because my job is very physical. All I was able to do was lay in bed if I was not at work most of the day, I had pain walking and pain sitting. I started chiropractic care and I had relief within the first week (2-3 visits). I've never seen a chiropractor before so I didn't know what to expect, but now I am back to work with no limitations. My advice to you would be that it works on so many conditions and Dr. Hudak is fantastic!! You would be in great hands because his staff is terrific, warm and inviting. I look forward to all of my appointments now."

  • "I came into Shoreline Chiropractic with extreme back pain. Since I started to go to Dr. John Hudak, my pain has almost completely gone away. My advice that I would give to people who are new to chiropractic care is that it really works and also to stick with the treatment."
