Relationship with Self

As we go along in life, most of us periodically encounter obstacles or other checks to our welfare and well-being that cause us to question ourselves, our values, and our life circumstances. As we inquire with ourselves, we may find that we're wanting in certain areas such as preparedness, resilience, and adaptability. If we look deeply enough, we may also discover that there is a deficiency in kindness, generosity, and empathy with others and even with ourselves. If we're not honest with ourselves, the whole process is doomed to fail. But if we are, we will eventually have an opportunity to locate a spark of hope, a brighter light that points the way toward the means of resolution, specifically, a process of self-discovery and self-healing.

This self-healing process of growth and development may take many forms. For some persons, engagement with one of the world religions, such as Judaism, Islam, or Christianity, may provide a deeply rewarding and meaningful journey of self-realization. For others, launching and maintaining a daily meditation practice provides an effective method for achieving inner growth and self-actualization. As well, others may discover timeless wisdom in the works of the great philosophers, including Plato, Aristotle, Augustine of Hippo, Thomas of Aquino, Baruch Spinoza, David Hume, and Immanuel Kant. Many persons, over time, may embrace all of these methods of participation in the life of the self and others, as one's ongoing investigations and explorations point the way to additional sources of learning and fulfillment.

Thus, there is no single and exclusive means of achieving self-knowledge. One is guided by one's instincts and inclinations, based on one's inner understanding of what is truly meaningful. What works for you, works for you, and what is of deep interest should be pursued. Importantly, none of these processes of developing a relationship with oneself is a solipsistic endeavor, that is, a process that is only directed inward. We all have a responsibility, an obligation, to know ourselves and improve our capabilities. We also have a corresponding responsibility to help further the goals of others, to assist others in achieving their dreams and aspirations.

Regular chiropractic care is a critical part of one's journey of growth and development. Regular chiropractic care improves spinal alignment and removes sources of nerve irritation, helping to further the physiological benefits of our mindfulness practices.1,2,3. In this way, by helping to optimize our health and well-being, regular chiropractic care helps to facilitate both our inner processes of self-discovery and our outer activities that contribute to the welfare of our family, community, and society.

  • "I have been very happy with Rosemount Chiropractic and would highly recommend them. It’s easy to schedule an appointment and their staff is very friendly and welcoming. Both Dr. Justin Hoff and Dr. Al Hoff are very knowledgeable and take a holistic approach to your care. In addition to my adjustments, they explored other contributing factors to my back problems and then recommended solutions that have helped improve my situation. They also provided me with education regarding nutrition and adding more anti-inflammatory foods to my diet. They also have been instrumental in providing me with helpful stretches and exercises I can do at home to help provide relief for my back pain. They genuinely care about you as a patient and take the time to listen to your concerns. I’m very pleased with their quality care."
