“The power that made the body, heals the body. It happens no other way.” – B.J. Palmer.
The most perfect example of a miracle in life is the birth of a child. Two cells come together and in about nine months a baby is born that totals over one trillion cells! That is an incredible feat which is hard to image, but best of all, it happens entirely on its own. It takes no conscious thought by the mother, no help from a doctor or advice from a book titled Growing Babies for Dummies. That is because the two cells already contain all the intelligence they will ever need. Chiropractors refer to this intelligence as ‘innate intelligence’ and it resides within all living things. It is this principle that makes our bodies self-regulating and self-healing. All the power we will ever need was provided for us the moment those cells came together to start creating us. To this day, that same innate intelligence is keeping you as healthy as you can be, if you supply it with the proper environment.
Chiropractors help to provide that proper environment. Adjustments remove nervous system interference so you can more fully express innate intelligence within your body. In addition to proper nervous system function, we should also attempt to limit physical, emotional and chemical stressors in our life to maintain an environment more prone to health. We should also work to add health building activities such as routine exercise, proper nutrition and quality sleep. We provide our body the environment and our body provides us health!
