The Big Idea

Many spend their whole lives searching for health, wealth and happiness and never finding it. Health is pursued through pills, procedures, lotions and potions, wealth by chance or some stroke of luck, and happiness through possessions and other people. The reason why these never work out is they’re looking in the wrong place, outside of themselves. Health, wealth and happiness only come from within. They come from you and not to you! It happens no other way.

Chiropractic is a philosophy that understands this, a science that respects this and an art that expresses it. Are you in search of health, wealth and happiness? Get the Big Idea and all else follows!

Well Adjusted Living

Since the moment of your conception, life began for you. This miracle called life has an “innate (inborn) intelligence” that caused two cells to multiply and differentiate into the trillions of cells that became you. The innate intelligence knew exactly what you needed, exactly when you needed it. All of this development happens naturally as long as nothing interferes.

As the number of cells grew, your innate intelligence needed a system to send and receive messages in order to control and coordinate all functions and parts of the body. This vital system was the first to develop and began within 18 days of conception. It is so valuable and delicate that its primary parts are the only organs encased in bone. This system is your nerve system and the primary parts are the brain protected by the skull and the spinal cord protected by the spine.

Disruption = Inability to Adapt

Vertebral Subluxation

All it takes is the weight of a dime to cut nerve transmission by 50% and stretching a neve as little as 6% decreases function by 70%. All, without the presence of pain!

What would happen if this intelligence, which flows through the nerves and is filled with vital life messages, could not reach the proper destination at the right time? What if this interference blocked messages being sent to your heart, lungs, liver, kidneys or stomach?

According to Deepak Chopra, M.D., “All diseases result from a disruption of the flow of intelligence.” Chiropractically speaking, “The one cause of all disease is our inability to adapt.”

Thomas Edison said it differently, “The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.”

The Supremacy of the Nervous System

Life and health are dependent on our ability to adapt to all the stresses of life. We constantly make an effort to decrease the amount of stress we experience, which these days can be very difficult. Fortunately, how we respond to these stresses is more important. This is the job of the nerve system.

Our ability to adapt is dependent upon the uninterrupted “flow of intelligence” through the nerves. When the flow is interrupted, the cells, tissues, organs, and eventually our entire body will weaken and our ability to function and adapt is reduced, making us more susceptible to illness and injury. No matter how we treat ourselves, as long as we have life in us, our innate intelligence, working through our nerve system, always does it’s best to adjust and adapt to these stresses keeping you as healthy as possible.

The Science, Art and Philosophy

“Often the nerve system is overloaded by common physical, chemical, and/or emotional stresses causing spinal bones to subluxate (misalign) and a “short circuit” in the nerve system or “a disruption of the flow of intelligence” results. Subluxations of the spine, also known as Vertebral Subluxation Complex (VSC), are the most common place for a disruption of the flow of intelligence.” Since the nerve system is responsible for the function and adaptation of our whole body, the single best way to increase our ability to adapt and stay healthy is to keep our spine free from subluxations, for life. Since, subluxations are misalignments of the spine, the only way to correct them is to realign the spine through chiropractic adjustments. Chiropractic is the science, art and philosophy of correcting subluxations.

Since stress causes subluxations, during times of increased stress we may need more care to remain subluxation free. How do we get our first subluxation? Who are the people who choose chiropractic for their family’s healthcare? How do we benefit when we keep ourselves free from subluxation throughout our lives?
