Never underestimate the power of the body to be self-healing and self-regulating when there is no interference on the nervous system. Nature has the incredible power of innate (God given) wisdom on the body to secrete digestive juices when you eat food, increase your heart rate when you run, constrict your pupils when a bright light shines in your eye or shiver the muscles to warm the body when you get cold.
The body is comprised of over 37.2 trillion cells that work together with 100 billion nerve cells to create a properly functioning system that is interwoven and intertwined at all cellular levels to continue to survive, digest, see, breathe and be healthy. When the spinal column is in proper alignment, the nervous system is fully connected to every cell and tissue which allows the body to properly function while properly working with every gland, organ and tissue in the body.
The Power of a Specific Chiropractic Adjustment never ceases to amaze me.
When an expectant mother comes to the office at 39 weeks and her lower back, pelvis, and upper neck are adjusted, it allows the stomach muscles to relax. This also reduces the pressure on the baby and restores the “breech presentation” to a more natural and normal position for a proper delivery.
When someone has a blocked sinus, resulting in headache pressure and an earache. A specific adjustment of the upper neck bone (C1) allows the “kink” in the eustachian tube to open and pressure on the nerves controlling the sinuses to release. This allows the patient to hear better and the ear to drain as the person sits up and swallows.
A severely sleep deprived mom and dad, with a colicky and constipated baby, bring their newborn for a simple and specific chiropractic adjustment on the lower back and the upper neck. Within minutes of the adjustment the baby has a bowel movement on the table, smiles, and then falls asleep on the way home so the parents can get some well needed rest in the evening.
So, never underestimate that power of the body when there is no pressure on the nervous system. Specific Chiropractic adjustments allow the body to work and have a 100% functioning ability. Remember the Power that Made the Body also Heals the Body with no interference on your spine or nervous system. Thanks for reading, Dr. Joe
