The Principles of Health and Chiropractic
What is a principle? A principle is a fundamental law or code of conduct. I think of the Golden Rule as a principle that we can use to guide and enrich our lives. The Golden Rule encourages us to treat others, as we ourselves would like to be treated. I know if the Golden Rule guided all my words and actions then my world would be enriched. Chiropractic has principles too. To the extent that we are successful in translating these to the patient, they will naturally experience greater levels of health and fulfillment. I have written down the basic principles of Chiropractic that are the most important to your health and that of your family.
1-There is a powerful healer within all of us. Its mission is to keep our bodies healthy and needs very little assistance from us. We call this the Innate Intelligence of the body. Innate simply means inborn or indwelling. It is the Life that is within you and is even now beating your heart without your effort. It is present in every cell.
2-This Innate Wisdom of your body uses the nervous system as a pathway from the brain to the cells of the body. Through the nervous system, Innate Intelligence coordinates and controls every cell and every function in the body.
3-Interference to the nervous system interferes with the mission of Innate Intelligence, which is to keep your body healthy and in the proper balance.
4-Spinal misalignments (subluxations) put pressure on the nervous system and interfere with this Intelligence and its ability to carry out its mission, which is maintaining health.
5-Interference to the nervous system (subluxation) is often silent or without symptoms until the final stages of the disease process, therefore, spinal care should begin long before symptoms arise.
6-Correction of the subluxation restores our body’s ability to heal and function as intended.
7-Spinal misalignments or subluxations are a natural consequence of physical, chemical and emotional stressors in the environment, which occurs on a daily basis. Subluxations should be kept to a minimum throughout the life of the individual.
8-For optimal health, spinal care should begin as soon after birth as possible and be maintained throughout the life of the individual.
