The Matrix of Health

Red pill or blue pill

Do you remember that scene in the movie, “The Matrix”? It’s the one where Morpheous is talking to Neo and offering him the choice between two pills. There is a red pill, and a blue pill.

“You take the blue pill, the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe.”

“You take the red pill, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.”

He finishes by saying, “All I’m offering is the truth.”

Here’s the clip itself.


I feel that there is a similar choice in healthcare. People have been conditioned to believe that health is something that comes from outside. That medications are a form of healthcare.

Blue pill

Pills, even if not blue, are the blue pill.

The blue pill of healthcare believes the following. Diseases are discreet entities, and they are out to get you. That they must be fought, and that the only way to do that is with drugs. The blue pill would have you believe that you are weak, and that disease and infirmity is inevitable. The blue pill says that you are inherently flawed.

Red pill

The truth as I see it is the red pill of healthcare. You have within you all that you need to be healthy. It is the role of the Chiropractor to help that express more fully, more deeply, and connect you to that power. When you learn the kung-fu of health, you learn that what you eat plays a role in your health, and that how you move is just as important. You learn that symptoms are your body’s way of communicating its needs, and that they shouldn’t be ignored.

Just as in “The Matrix”, as Neo learns that he can leap across buildings, or that he knows kung-fu, there is a wealth of knowledge and power just waiting inside of you. It’s waiting to be set free.

The ironic thing here is that you don’t need a red pill or a blue pill, (but maybe a little yellow one) to start on this journey. It can start with Chiropractic care, or changing up the way you eat a little bit, or by starting to get moving.

I think that the more that you move into the red pill side of health, the more vibrant and alive you will be. Try it, take the plunge, and see how deep the rabbit hole goes!

All I’m offering is the truth.

(You deserve a brilliant life, let it shine!)
