For the month of December I will be donating a portion of every new patient visit to the Kids Health Links Foundation, specifically, their program “Upopolis”. This charity was founded by Basile Papaevangelou and his daughter Christina to help children avoid the isolation that can accompany long stays in hospitals. Being away from friends, family and school can cause additional stress on children, during a time when their immune systems demand the most of them. Here is some information about Upopolis:
Upopolis™ is a private social utility that connects young hospital patients to their family, friends and school network .
Kids can use Upopolis to:
- Build a profile, create a blog and stay in touch with people they know
- Learn more about their conditions and treatment with kid-friendly medical information
- Keep up with schoolwork while they’re away from class
- Look up kids around them in hospital and share their experiences
Now then, to be able to donate money to this cause, I need you to know what I’m offering and why you should spend your time (and money) receiving chiropractic care from me.
You need chiropractic care. You may not need a lot of it, but every single person will benefit from a properly moving spine. For your genetics to express health, it needs a certain amount of movement. Just like animals, plants, or any living thing on the planet, humans have optimal conditions in which to thrive. Among many other things, a properly moving spine is one of those conditions. Having exceptional movement in your spine means your brain is receiving full and complete input from your body, as you move it (you ARE moving your body with some regularity, right?). When the spine isn’t moving well we set ourselves up for all sorts of problems that range from back and neck pain (the most common) to headaches, poor sleep, inadequate digestion, and an inhibited immune system. I’ll stop there.
The point of this post isn’t to goad you into doing something you don’t want to do (because obviously that would never work). The point is to try and present to you the reason why chiropractic care is essential to wellbeing, and from there to encourage you to tell your friends, family and coworkers to come in and receive the health care that they need.
And ultimately the more people that come in to realize their health potential, the more I can donate to the awesome cause that is “Upopolis”.
I will be providing chiropractic care @ Element Crossfit (in Mississauga/Oakville) Mondays and Wednesdays 6-8am (please call/email to make an appointment) and Tuesdays and Thursdays 5-9pm.
I look forward to helping you reach your health goals!
p.s. Here is the advertisement I’ve drawn up that (if you’d be so gracious) you can post on your facebook wall, twitter, blog, etc. I’d really appreciate all the help I can get with this promotion as I’d like to donate as much as I can to this cause. Thank you so much!
