Without proactively addressing the core tenets of the Five Foundations of Health, it is easy to slip into the modern, American way of managing symptoms. This method has left us sick, in pain, and worn out. At Archetype, we believe that addressing these Five Foundations of Health will not only help us feel better, but allow us to live well.
How Archetype Is Positioned To Be Americas # 1 Natural Health and Movement Center.
At Archetype we consistently strive for best natural healthcare practices for our patients and community. For 10 years we have helped 1000's of people through chiropractic but in January 2020 we morphed into a 1 stop shop natural health and performance clinic. We now offer strength, mobility, and altitude classes. We exist to bring the public from a state of dysfunction to function to performance. We want to see you thrive and live the highest quality of life possible.
At Archetype we teach all of our team members, patients, athletes, and anyone else wanting to learn how to live a life through a natural living ethos. We call this natural ethos the Archetype 5 foundations of health. This post is specifically about third foundation of health.
This is the most common response I hear any time I ask to see a patient’s blood work. They have been told that everything is normal, yet they still feel awful. How could this be the case?

As Summer takes hold, the hotter days and outdoor activities that cause us to sweat more remind me that it’s a good time to talk about dehydration. When you look at what it takes for our bodies to thrive, no other substance besides oxygen plays a bigger role than water. Just about every function in our body requires water. Our bodies are always prioritizing resources, sending those resources to “mission critical” areas first, and allowing other, less survival-dependent tissues to go without.
Going through pregnancy can be difficult for a woman, both physically and emotionally. Creating a life is a lot of work and it is important for women to be as functional as possible during that important time in their life. Chiropractic care is beneficial for pregnant women because spinal health is important to maintain function throughout the pregnancy.
This is the structure we use in our Birmingham Alabama Chiropractor clinic for building a healthy lifestyle. All of these components are the focus areas to achieve and maintain a healthy body and mind. All of these foundations are interdependent. For example, you cannot have a fully healthy brain if you are not eating and exercising correctly. If you aren’t consuming the proper nutritious foods, exercising will be less effective. The brain and the body depend on each other and are in constant communication. All of the 5 foundations should be utilized in succession. If one is put ahead of the other, the individual will experience a benefit in their health but will not reach true optimal function.So many people fail to reach their goals or they develop disease because they are not focused on all of the components of health. You cannot reach your health potential if you don’t incorporate all of these foundations into your lifestyle together.
