THE ALTERNATIVE ROUTE
TO TRUE HEALTH
If you believe that the only road to good health is paved with pills, potions,
and surgery, this is not the article for you. If your favorite part of watching
TV is making a list of the new drugs you can ask your doctor or pharmacist about,
stop reading right here.
If you are looking for a road where the foundation of good health is realized,
read on. Educated individuals are disenchanted with the healthcare their parents
knew. Simply seeing the medications their aging parents now take is enough to
create concern. What they visualize is a future where one symptom is treated
with a pill that creates another symptom without ever finding the cause
of the first symptom. Add to this the terrifying statistics of deaths due to
medical procedures and intelligent people just want something that is real health.
They want different. They want BETTER.
Hippocrates (460-377BC), the "father of medicine", said, Look well to the
spine, for it is the cause of all disease and infirmity. Since 1895, chiropractic
has been providing healthcare that, in many instances, is superior to anything
else available, utilizing the relationship of the spinal column and the nervous
system it protects. Chiropractic is built on the premise that the body is born
to be healthy. Chiropractic is built on the universal law that a fundamental
necessity of good health is a sound nervous system.
Scientists tell us that the brain controls all structure and function in the
body by sending messages through the nerves to all organs, systems, and tissues.
No tissue, organ, or system in the body can do one solitary thing without information
from the brain. Any interference to the nerve supply endangers health.
A major interference to the nervous system, such as a gunshot wound to the
spine, can cause permanent paralysis and functional shutdown. A minor interference
can create dysfunction and a state of dis-ease in the body. What chiropractors
address is a specific type of interference called a spinal misalignment or vertebral
subluxation. A subluxation is interference to the nerve system caused by the
misalignment of one or more bones of the spine. These misalignments stress the
area around them and interfere with the brain sending vital messages through
the nerves. Malfunction results. Symptoms, such as pain in or around the innervated
area, follow the malfunction.
If you know chiropractic, you know it can dramatically improve health by correcting
these interferences to nervous system health. A chiropractor is uniquely qualified
to carefully adjust the misalignments to the spinal bones. The nerves can then
regain their ability to perform their normal functions. This aids the body in
returning it to a state of real health without dangerous medications or surgery.
