The Most Important Part
The human body is designed to be perfectly healthy at all times, and is in a constant state of striving for this perfect health dependent upon the environment it is given. There is an innate intelligence that is a non-local property of all living things which gives animation to them; it is what separates living organisms from inanimate objects. It is this intelligence that allows us to heal from a cut without giving it conscious attention, it causes for the coordination of our body’s 600,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000/second functions in perfect harmony. In the human body the innate intelligence uses the nervous system to coordinate the functions of all the other systems, organ, and cells. For the full potential of health and therefore the greatest ability to heal and correct damage that has occurred, the nervous system must be healthy and freely functioning without interference. This is where chiropractic care enters the picture. Chiropractic care is about the business of assisting the body to clear subluxations (patterns of interference to the nervous system, and therefore the innate intelligence’s function). This allows for the greatest potential of health to be attained. If the nervous system has interference, one can eat a great diet, exercise properly, get good, rest, etc.., but still not be achieving 100% health.
The body is more likened to a flowing river of change, rather than a static machine of function. So, even though we think of our bodies as being permanent structures, most of our tissues are continually being turned over, renewed in a balance between the constant death of old cells and the constant birth of new cells. Some studies have suggested that the average age of the cells in an adult human may be as low as seven to ten years. (An interesting concept for those who consider their ill health to be a result of their body being old) This reality adds restorative importance to dietary and lifestyle changes that can help to limit oxidative stress. In effect, it is never too late to make positive changes towards health, and with a full spectrum approach, including reverence for the innate intelligence that really does the healing, seemingly miraculous changes can occur
