What is a vertebral subluxation? (3)

It has now been proven that one to three hours of a great deal of pressure on a spinal nerve root, from a displaced vertebra, causes many of the nerve fibers in the nerve root to rupture, producing toxins or poisons which spread to the surrounding tissues.

This is the same degree of pressure objective chiropractors find in the average person’s spine.  The poisons in turn, are absorbed into the nerves, bones, ligaments, spinal discs, muscles and other supportive tissues of the spine, progressively and relentlessly destroying them though out a lifetime.  Although a vertebral subluxation cannot be felt immediately, its effects are relentless and progressive.  It interferes directly with the proper function of all the parts of your body by altering the information, in the form of mental impulse, that they receive from your brain.

What does this mean you?  It means that the vertebral subluxation must be corrected as soon as possible after it occurs!

By attempting to make correction of vertebral subluxations available to everyone regardless of creed, health status, age, sex, education, political affiliation financial ability to pay, the objective chiropractor hopes not only to encourage your individual self improvement but also to facilitate the intelligent use of our environment.

What is a vertebral subluxation? (2)

A vertebral subluxation causes malfunction of the life support systems in our body, silently eating away at our ability to be all that we could be.  It is what the University of Colorado research described as:  “The slightest amount of pressure on a spinal nerve root emerging from the spine or at the brain stem which kills the function 60% in matter of minutes”.

What is a vertebral subluxation?

A vertebral subluxation is a condition in which nerve control is lost between the brain control center and the organs due to a small displacement of the spinal bones, always altering the functions of the body.  In other words, a vertebral subluxation is an interference to the function of you body, forcing your body to have less instructive information from the innate intelligence of your body.  When this occurs, you will have less than optimal physical, mental and social well being.

A vertebral subluxation is the most serious interference to the functions of your body that we know of.

What is health anyway? (5)

In order for your body to function properly, the innate intelligence of the body uses a communication system:  the brain and the nerves.  By way of the nerves, messages come into the brain, giving feedback about body conditions, and instructions go out from the brain, to keep things working smoothly.  This is how the innate intelligence of the body controls and coordinates your functions and keeps you healthy.

The objective chiropractor makes sure you are free from any interference to your communication system (brain and nerves) so that the innate intelligence of the body can maintain your body health by allowing all the cells of your body to function normally.

What is health anyway? (4)

We cannot define health as the absence of symptoms.  We need another definition, and in chiropractic we have one.

The word health comes from  the Greeks and it means whole.  In chiropractic, we know that health equals wholeness.  Wholeness has two meaning here.  First, wholeness in structure, that all the various parts are present.  Second, and most importantly, wholeness in function, that each part is coordinated with all the other parts. It is this harmonious wholeness that is health.

What is health anyway? (3)

Most people believe that symptoms happen at the beginning of a disease.  This is completely and totally untrue.  Symptoms are not a sign of the beginning of an illness, rather, symptoms tell you that something has been wrong for a long time, long enough to build up to a point of causing you pain.  Symptoms do not tell you that you just got sick… symptoms tell you that you have been unhealthy for a long time.  Examples:  Kidney stones result from 7 to 10 years of kidney malfunctions.  Cancer, as much  as 20 to 25 years of latency.  Heart diseases, 10 to 15 years… etc.

So, if you wait for symptoms or pain to show up, the first symptom might be your last, example, a fatal heart attack!

What is health anyway? (2)

Most people say I am healthy when I feel good.  Others say I am healthy when I have no pain.  Still others, I am healthy when I have no symptoms.  Are these a good criteria to determine one’s health?

What is a symptom?  What is it that makes us feel we are not well?  A symptom is some kind of sign that we interpret as being bad for us.  What happened in our bodies to cause us pain?

Is it that something goes wrong within our body, and instantly we feel pain, and we know we are sick?  Or is it that something begins to go wrong just a little, and it is not corrected, and so it builds up, until it reached the level where it finally causes us pain?

What is health, anyway?

Health, what is it?  It seems to be something people want.  Many people spend a lot of time and money looking for health, and all of us miss it if we don’t have health.

Ask most people this question during the coming week:  “HOW do YOU know that YOU are healthy, what is you criteria for being healthy?”  Next week we’ll look at some of the answers you probably heard.

Do you want more healing? (4)

The difference between people who return to their normal activities after a heart attack and those who don’t is quite simple. It all depends on the functioning of the body’s ability to replace scar tissue with living cells.  For that to happen, the body needs a good nerve supply without nerve interference.  This, chiropractic care can provide with chiropractic adjustments to allow the body to express its innate potential.

The living body possesses an innate intelligence that can heal the body.  It needs no help from anyone!  What it needs is no interference!

The objective of chiropractic is to insure that there is no interference within the nerve system of the body.  Then more healing from the innate intelligence of the body is available.

Do you want more healing? (3)

If the damage to a wound is very severe the innate intelligence of the body will quickly produce scar tissue as an emergency measure to keep the person alive.  Scar tissue can be made more quickly than living cells.  This often occurs in the person with an acute heart attack.  Because of the great amount of scar tissue, the person may never be able to lead an active life again.  Scar tissue cannot do the job of the normal healthy living cells.  In many cases the innate intelligence of the body, given time and given a good nerve supply will be able to once again produce the cells necessary for healing to take place.
