Chiropractors Don’t Cure Anything!
Yes, you read the headline correctly. Chiropractors don’t cure anything; not headaches, not asthma, not stomach disorders or even back pain. Then what does a chiropractor do?
Chiropractic is based on very basic scientific fact. Your brain is responsible for every bodily function you ever perform from before you were born until the time you die. Your brain sends those instructions through a vast telephone network (known as the nervous system) to every cell, tissue and organ in your body. If those telephone lines are interfered with in any way, those instructions coming from the brain get distorted and the result is lost function. (Think of Christopher Reeve to help with this concept, he damaged his telephone lines and as a result has very little function in his body.)
Your spine is designed to protect the telephone lines. If the spine has been injured (even very slightly) it can become a major irritant to the nerve system, this is what chiropractors call a subluxation. How serious is this problem?
"Vertebral subluxation changes the entire health of the body by causing structural dysfunction of the spine and causing nerve interference. The weight of a quarter on a spinal nerve will reduce nerve impulse transmission by as much as 60%." WOW! –Chang H. Suh, Spinal Biomechanics Specialist, University of Colorado
"Nerve dysfunction is stressful to the visceral nerve and other body structures and the lowered tissue resistance modifies the immune response and lessens the overall capability of the immune system." -the journal Science, 1981 WHO NEEDS THAT?
"The quality of healing is directly proportional to the functional capability of the nerve system to send and receive nerve messages." -J Edwards, MD, PhD., BET YOU DIDN’T KNOW THAT!
