Dis-ease vs Disease

Ooh for life is feel easy…. what would that feel like for you? What does that mean to you? And what would you need to do, to live life with ease? Everything we do affects the present and future of our overall well-being. As we strive to keep balance in our life our focus should be on the overall well-being of the nervous system which fuels and regulates our bodies.

Today’s topic will focus on the difference of Dis-ease and DISEASE and the progression between the two states.

Under chronic periods of stress our body is brought into dis-ease which long term can lead to disease. Dis-ease means a loss of ease in the system. What results is a loss of energy, coherence and balance. This over time leads to breakdown of the system as this is termed disease.

Dis-ease is simply a state, on one end of the spectrum, in which things are not working well together, there is disorder, disharmony and tension or stress. You can tell when you are in a state of “dis-ease”. Things are not working as they should, you are pushing instead of flowing, there is tension, there is a sense of something is just not as it should be. You MAY or MAYNOT feel this. We can be attuned to feel it or not. We can be so detached from our bodies and environment that we cannot feel this.

This state can continue for days, weeks, months, years.

Disease occurs when disorder has lasted a long time. How long we don’t know. Everyone is different. Every grouping of cells is different. If there is stress on a system for a period of time it loses its ability to act in unison and adapt to its environment. This is when a grouping of cells (enough cells) are acting out of such that their function demonstrates illness.

We can or cannot feel disease. It can be diagnosed but silent.

One state leads to another, you cannot have disease without first having dis-ease.

When we choose chiropractic care as part of our wellness plan- each time we receive a chiropractic adjustment we are rebalancing our state of ease. We are returning the nerve system to balance and ease. A chiropractic adjustment dials down the stress response so the body, instantaneously, moves to a state of ease so we can heal. This is the beauty of the chiropractic adjustment. Each chiropractic adjustment interrupts old patterns in the brain and resets them so the brain once again can interact, interpret, navigate and respond the best it can to its environment. Literally taking the foot off of the gas pedal and applying the brake. We heal when the brake is applied.

Yes we can and have to change our environment (externally) but it is VITAL to change the processor to more effectively deal with the environment we are in or put ourselves in.


Here are some Ideas to help destress and move to a state of EASE:

Firstly, recognize signs of your body’s response to stress, such as difficulty sleeping, increased alcohol and other substance use, being easily angered, feeling depressed, and having low energy.


  • Get proper health care for existing or new health problems
  • Create and engage in a community
  • Set priorities, boundaries and commitments
  • Say NO when needed
  • Note what you have accomplished at the end of the day, not what you have been unable to do. Celebrate and recognize limits
  • Schedule regular times for healthy and relaxing activities
  • Explore stress coping programs, which may incorporate meditation, yoga, tai chi, or other gentle exercises
  • Practice Relaxation and breathing techniques
  • Exercise regularly – just 30 minutes per day
  • Walking

  • Acupuncture

Stay healthy strong and in balance
