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?

IS IT HEAT OR COLD?

As we saw 6 blogs on the subject of the skin, we must remember that the senses of touch, pressure, heat, cold and pain are called cutaneous senses, from cutis, the Latin word for “skin”.  The tongue has a high density of these receptors and a high degree of sensitivity.  The center of the back is more sparsely endowed with receptors, and shows a corresponding lower response.

A blind person reads Braille with the fingertips, not the knuckles or the pisiform bone of the hand.  Same with a chiropractor using her fingertips to “read” muscle tone of the spine.  There are some 640,000 cutaneous senses receptors distributed over the body’s surface.

Effects or cause

Chiropractic does not address the symptoms, pain or feelings because they are the result of a cause…   When cells are sick, they never recover, they always die just the same as healthy cells die every second of your life.

Of course they are replaced by new cells, and if the new cells are as sick as the ones that just died, the person is getting worse.

And if the new cells are healthier than the ones that just died, then the person is getting better.

That’s how healing works!
