Three Little Pigs a story about robust health

In the world of folklore and children’s literature, few stories have resonated as deeply as the tale of the three little pigs. Often dismissed as a simple bedtime story, this timeless fable carries profound lessons about healing, resilience, and the importance of laying a strong foundation. As we delve into the story of the three little pigs, we uncover valuable insights into the fact that healing takes time, persistence, and good foundational blocks.

A mother pig sends her THREE LITTLE PIGS out into the world to seek their fortunes, and each builds a house.

The first little pig hastily builds a house of straw, taking the quick and simple option, and using materials that are less than robust. However the wolf blows down that house and eats the pig.

Similarly, in our own lives, we often seek quick fixes or instant relief when faced with health challenges. Often targeting the symptom, but not necessarily taking the time to ask what the cause may be.

You see our bodies are beautifully equipped to heal and recover, when we are faced with symptoms, this is warning our body is providing for us to pay attention and seek to understand what might be going on, and provide ourselves with the right approach to restore that ability for our bodies to self heal and recover.

For example, when we eat food that may have spoiled, our bodies will do whatever it can to expel and rid itself of that food. It is not uncommon to experience fever, which provides heat to kill the pathogens, or to vomit or have diarrhea, which expels those toxic materials. This is uncomfortable, and often unpleasant lets be honest. However, what we often do is try and stop the fever, and stop the diarrhea. This in effect is messing with the body’s natural defences against these pathogens.

The second little pig, recognizing the inadequacy of the straw house, decides to build his home with sticks. While an improvement over the previous choice, the stick house still lacks the strength and durability required to withstand adversity. Similarly, in our healing journeys, persistence plays a vital role.

The second little pig was looking for a quick solution.

There are 33 principles in chiropractic which form the backbone of the philosophy of health and wellbeing. The sixth principle states that there is no process that does not require time.

It is crucial to understand that healing is a process that unfolds gradually. Embracing this truth allows us to be gentle with ourselves and trust that optimal health is possible when we give ourselves the space and time required.

The third little pig, the embodiment of wisdom and foresight, constructs his house using strong and sturdy bricks. The foundation of his house is built on solid ground, ensuring long-lasting security and protection. This part of the story emphasizes the importance of establishing good foundational blocks to support our health and wellbeing.

In our own lives, good foundational blocks represent self-care, healthy coping mechanisms, a support system, and a positive mindset.

Ensuring your nerve system is clear of interference, so that your body is always functioning optimally, interference free.

Keeping your spine moving optimally is the best way to support a healthy nerve system, which is what is coordinating your health and wellbeing.

Investing time and effort into cultivating these aspects creates a strong and resilient structure that can withstand the trials and tribulations of life. The story reminds us that a solid foundation is essential for sustainable health

The tale of the three little pigs holds profound lessons for our healing journeys. It reminds us that healing takes time, demanding patience and trust in the process. It teaches us the significance of persistence, urging us not to give up when faced with setbacks.

Most importantly, it emphasizes the importance of laying good foundational blocks in our lives to create a strong and enduring structure.

Just as the third little pig’s house stood firm against the wolf’s relentless blows, we too can find solace, strength, and healing by embracing these valuable lessons. By recognizing that healing is a journey that requires time, persistence, and a solid foundation, we can navigate life’s challenges with greater resilience, ultimately leading to a more fulfilling and balanced existence.
