What’s Your Value?

August 10, 2010

Last night I was reading a book by the late Dr. Fred Barge, a prolific writer and contributor to Chiropractic.  I won’t bore you with all the details, but I thought I would talk about one concept which I believe will be of great value to you if you apply it…the concept of “Accumulative Survival Value.”

Dr. Barge stated

“that what uses a person makes of his time—thinking, saying, and doing – are ACCUMULATIVE, day after day, year after year; and as they accumulate they are either CONSTRUCTIVE for welfare of man, or DESCTRRUCTIVE, injuring people with whom he commingled.”

So let’s take an example:

Sister Theresa’s life had an “accumulative constructive survival value.”

Saddam Hussein’s life had an “accumulative destructive survival value.”

As Barge explains, chiropractors utilize this concept with patients to determine the prognosis of chiropractic care.  For instance, if you never exercise and eat McDonald’s for your primary nutrition, healing may be more difficult for you than someone who walks 30 minutes several times a week and has a balanced diet.

Very simply, what you do on a daily, weekly, and yearly basis will be a huge factor in determining your future health.  And, all decisions matter: what you eat, how you think, how you move.

Let’s make Louisville a healthier place… one decision at a time!

Yours in Health,

Dr. Greg Thomas, D.C.
