On Halloween this year I'm sure you'll see some kids dressed as zombies staggering about your neighborhoods, but what is really scary is how often we act like zombies in our everyday life! Going about our day feeling lethargic, head in the clouds, not interested in much of anything. It is common for an individual with vertebral subluxation to experience a zombie like attitude. If these subluxations go on undetected that individual will be living life more zombie like rather than at their full potential.
Vertebral subluxation occurs when stress creates a misalignment within the spinal column that results in nervous system interference. A nervous system experiencing stress interference cannot properly conduct the life vital mental messages between the brain and body of the individual. This results in an individual not functioning and performing to their full potential, a modern day zombie among us!
Every ghost and goblin this Halloween season should have their spine checked by their local chiropractor who is trained to locate and correct vertebral subluxations. Experiencing life subluxation free is living a life full of potential!
“If we take apart a pocket watch and then put it back together properly, it will once again function. If we disassemble a living human being and were able to reassemble it, all parts in the right place, it would never work again.” –Strauss
This is a great statement from Dr. Strauss because it is so simple to understand, common sense really, yet it requires a deeper understanding at the same time to truly appreciate it. We deduct from the statement, which is a truth, that there is more to life than simply observing individual pieces.
Mechanism and Vitalism are two separate philosophies in which an individual can view life in general and living things. Mechanism is defined by Merriam-Webster as “A doctrine that holds natural processes (as of life) to be mechanically determined and capable of complete explanation by the laws of physics and chemistry.” The true mechanist rejects any idea of a vitalistic concept that he cannot empirically demonstrate through science. Vitalism is defined by Merriam-Webster as “A doctrine that the processes of life are not explicable by the laws of physics and chemistry alone and that life is in some parts self-determining.” Chiropractic approaches an individual’s health with a vitalistic approach, which includes recognition of principles such as innate intelligence.
There is an unexplainable concept to LIFE that cannot be seen or created in a laboratory. Chiropractors recognize this concept, innate intelligence, and observe it as the best doctor any individual can ever have, the doctor inside of YOU! Provide this doctor with the proper environment, including routine chiropractic adjustments, and it will do its job to keep you healthy.
