These 5 ideas are derived from and encapsulate some of the differences about what the Wellness & Prevention paradigm of Health truly means, and how it directs our approach at Noosa Junction Chiropractic:
Toxicity and/or Deficiency – having too much of something we don’t need or that is not good for us, or having too little of something that is a clear requirement for ideal function – are the two primary factors leading to sickness. They affect the expression of our genes and lead to sickness physiology; we MUST move away from a belief in FAULTY genetics.
The concept of evolution makes clear that genetic changes take millennia to occur – 10 thousand years (the appoximate timeframe since the agricultrural revolution) is not enough time for this to have occurred.
Diseases like heart disease, hypertension, cancer, diabetes, and stroke,
or suffering from the degenerative or autoimmune disease like arthritis, lupus, M.S., chronic fatigue, low fertility, depression, etc. were/are virtually non-existent.

The exorbitant rise is ‘chronic illness’ over the last 50-60 years are due to changes in lifestyle and stress levels during this time – we can’t blame genes!
Our environment encompasses the external world around us, as well as our internal environment – both impact the expression of our genes through epigenetics – the food we eat, the thoughts we think, how much we move – in short, the lifestyle we choose to lead are all important aspects of our environment.
The Wellness & Prevention Paradigm makes two primary arguments.
First, that: Modern illnesses are AVOIDABLE! Second, that: Modern health is ATTAINABLE!!
