I adore my instant coffee/tea machine. I love pushing a button, setting a mug with tea bag under the spout, walking away for a few minutes, and finding a hot drink awaiting me. This is a huge improvement over waiting for water to boil in the tea kettle. If only tea could steep in 15 seconds (now that’s being too demanding, maybe 20 seconds is more realistic). Yes, instant gratification is a good thing… sometimes.
When it comes to health, anything quick, cheap, easy, and artificial gives only short-term results and has bad long-term effects on your body. When someone begins feeling various signals of body malfunction (symptoms), part of the body has not worked well for years, and the entire body has been out of balance possibly even longer. Whether you feel good right away or bad, you are not well. Getting truly well takes time.
As a human being, particularly an American human being, we want fast relief for our problems. Drugs are quick and cheap. Surgery is quick and not cheap. Within 1-6 chiropractic adjustments, most people experience significant pain relief. Others may not experience relief this quickly. Either their problem is more significant, they are slow healers, or they keep aggravating the condition with their home or work habits.
Anything that is natural, works well, and takes time is long-lasting and beneficial – a wise investment. Chiropractic is natural. The healing that takes place comes from the innate abilities of the human body. This healing takes time, but it has long-term benefits.
A wise friend once said, “There are no shortcuts to anyplace worth going.” They probably meant going toward big goals, like health, wealth, and love, but it probably also applies to a proper cup of tea.
