The power that made the body, heals the body

For 24 centuries most of the world has depended upon the doctor of medicine to cure health problems, yet the world is still sick and getting sicker! But more than forty million Americans have switched their thinking about doctors and each year an additional two million are switching. They are switching to Chiropractic. Yes, Chiropractic why because chiropractic works whether you believe in it or not.

The orthodox education of the medical doctor has centered on the theory of infection and has focused almost exclusively on the infectious diseases. Although some progress has been made in the fight against infection, medical science is beginning to realize that it is actually the degree of natural immunity, natural body defense, and vitality which determine the success of failure of any treatment. Because of this, the medical profession has been preoccupied with germs, viruses, and infections. The vast majority of conditions, ills, and diseases that trouble man have been ignored. In 1988 the Surgeon General of the United States, C. Everett Koop, (the highest ranking doctor of the United States) said, in one of only two reports ever published by the Surgeon General, “that chronic degenerative diseases must be prevented. Diseases such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, and diabetes must be prevented since the search for cures was fruitless and the treatment and rehabilitation cost prohibitive.”

We still need medicine and people still may need certain medicines, but the cost of treating disease instead of its cause has led to a health care system in dire need of serious reform. None of your body functions just happen. Your heart doesn’t just happen to beat. Your lungs don’t just happen to inhale and exhale. Your stomach does not just happen to digest your dinner. All doctors know that your brain and nerve system coordinate these functions which make life instead of death, health instead of sickness. It is your brain and nerve system which causes your heart to beat 72 times per minute, 60 minutes every hour, 103,680 times every 24 hours and pump 4,320 gallons of blood through nearly 100,000 miles of blood vessels, thus supplying oxygen and nourishment to every cell in the body, some 50 trillion of them.

Because your brain and nervous system direct it, today you will breathe 23,040 times, digest about 3 1/4 pounds of food, drink, and process about 3 quarts of liquid, speak about 4,800 words, move over 750 muscles and exercise about 7,000,000 brain cells. None of these things “just happen.” The nerve system – often called the Master System – controls every function taking place in your body. This makes you a whole human rather than a collection of parts.

In order to enjoy sound health, the individual must maintain an exact structural balance of the spinal column. It is the stresses and strains, knocks and bumps of living that sometimes overcome this balance. Just look at others about you; heads forward, slumped shoulders, hollow backs, protuberant bellies, knock knees, and flat feet. You can be sure these people suffer from attendant health problems; heart trouble, stomach trouble, liver trouble, headaches, sinus trouble, sciatica, ear trouble, are only a few. They may suffer from any of nearly 400 different diseases caused by misaligned vertebrae pinching nerves. Misaligned vertebrae which pinch nerves are called spinal subluxations. A fall or injury may produce subluxations. They may result from stress of strains, such as lifting the wrong way. Chemical, electrical or emotional shock may over load the nerve system’s protective mechanism and produce subluxations. Sometimes misaligned vertebrae correct themselves, but most subluxations need assistance for correction. That assistance is specific Chiropractic care.
