I Don’t Believe In Chiropractic
There are so many times when somebody asks me what I do for a living and I tell them that I am a Chiropractor. Then they tell me that they believe in Chiropractic and it is meant as a compliment or supporting my profession. I reply back to them that I don’t believe in Chiropractic and they look at me perplexed. What do you mean you don’t believe in Chiropractic? but you’re a Chiropractor! I am a Chiropractor, but it is not a belief it is a law. What do you mean by that? It is a law of having a clear nervous system of any interference. These interferences are called subluxations. A subluxation is the condition of a vertebra that has lost its proper position with the one above or the one below or both; which occludes an opening, impinges nerves and interferes with the transmission of the nerve impulses of the brain. If you have any subluxations your body is not going to function at its optimum, because your body is under total control by your nervous system. Your nervous system controls all the organs, muscles, tissues, and cells in the body.
It’s like believing if there is gravity or not. There is the law of gravity. Trust me you don’t believe if there is gravity or not. If you were on a tall building and jumped from it you would feel the effects of gravity in a very sudden and dangerous way. Your belief doesn’t affect if you or going to fall or not, it is a law just like the law of nerve interference. In a more dramatic example of the law of nerve interference, if your spinal cord was severed your body would never function at its optimum because the messages from the brain down the spinal cord and branching out the spinal nerves could never send the proper messages to all the organs, muscles, tissues, and cells in the body again. Dr. Suh, a research doctor from the University of Colorado did a study on nerve conduction and he found out that putting only 20 mm of Hg pressure would reduce the communication from the brain, through that nerve by an astonishing 50%. 20 mm of Hg pressure is the equivalent of the amount of pressure that a weight of a dime would have on a nerve. How painful is that? Not very painful right, so waiting until you’re in pain to see your Chiropractor is a poor indicator for any nerve interference.
Remember just like the law of gravity there is a law of nerve interference. Stop believing in Chiropractic and know that it is a fact that a nervous system with no interference will let your body function at its optimum the way it should all the time.
