The human body was designed to be organized and work in unity for the greater good for the entire organism. The organs, glands, cells and everything within the body were designed to work in unity to keep the entire body working in harmony and balance. This organization is accomplished by an inborn intelligence that Chiropractors call innate intelligence. This intelligence uses the nerve system to accomplish this unity by communicating the vital messages from the brain to all parts of the body. When the body is functioning in perfect unity, a greater expression of life can be expected.
However in contrast, when there is improper communication between the life sustaining messages from the brain to the organs, glands, cells and everything within the entire body, a lack of organization or unity can be expected. Leading to a lesser expression of life within the body which allows disease processes to happen. Disease processes occur because there is less life and healing happening within the body.
Everyday stresses of everyday life can cause the bones of the spine, called spinal vertebrae, that house and protect the delicate nerve tissue of the spinal cord to misalign, or what Chiropractors call Spinal Subluxations. These Spinal Subluxations put pressure on the spinal structure and interfere with the proper expression of life and unity within the body.
The purpose of Chiropractic is to help reestablish and maintain the unity within the body by helping the body to remove this nerve pressure by adjusting the bones of the spine into their proper position. When this is accomplish, proper communication between the life giving messages from the brain to all parts of the body is established, which leads to a proper functioning body along with all its parts - i.e. unity.
The biggest thing that happens when proper communication and balance are established within the body, a better quantity and quality of life is expressed. Greater quantity and quality of life expression is the key. Here is something to think about; a corpse has all the same organs, glands, cells and parts as a living breathing human organism. However, the corpse can not heal itself or express any signs of life. That is the vital difference between a corpse and a living human organism. A living organism expresses life whereas a corpse does not. If the lotions, potions, pills and procedures that some professions claim to do the healing then those same lotions, potions, pills and procedures should be able to be used on a corpse and heal it. However, that is not the case. The only thing that heals the body is the proper life expression within the human organism.
With the proper expression of life being expressed by an organism, it naturally heals itself. A living body is able to adapt to its internal and external environment, whereas the corpse is unable to because of its lack of life flow. This adaptation is the main differentiating factor between the living, breathing organism and a non-living corpse.
When there is unity within the human body, this will lead to a healthier, stronger, optimal expression and quality of life.
