Star Power

Consider Just Three Things Your Body Does:

  • In a normal adult, the red cells contained in about half a litre of blood are produced by the bone marrow every week. The rate of blood cell formation varies depending on the individual, but the human body produces about 200 billion red cells per day (almost 1 percent of the body’s red blood cells), 10 billion white cells per day, and 400 billion platelets per day.

    Since the balance between red cell production and the removal of aging red cells from the circulation is precisely maintained, the body destroys and replaces nearly two million red blood cells per second.
  • You have somewhere between 100,000 and 150,000 hairs on your head, and each of them grows at a rate of 0.3 to 0.4 mm a day.
  • Human skin – that most vital organ which protects every other organ in your body – regenerates itself about every 28 days. It needs to replace the 30 000 to 40 000 dead skin cells you lose each minute (50 million cells every day).

And your body does so much more! The power that runs your body truly is a superstar!

Our job is to take care of our body as best we can so that the power that runs the body can be expressed to its full potential without any interference! That means eating right, exercising regularly and maintaining a regular chiropractic adjustment schedule.
