Had a thought.

Today I got into my car and drove. I drove only far enough to realize that my brain is intimately aware of a number of things all at once.

The responsive nature of our physicality is unparalleled by the very thing responsible for keeping me safe at that time. My health is dependant on the metal, the seatbelt, the technology that I know as “car”.

I realize that I am in the driver seat. If anything were to go awry, it would first start from some kind of breakdown in communication between my sensory awareness and the world around me, maybe the technology.  But assuming there is nothing wrong with the car, the responsiveness starts with the driver, the person or thing in control.

Secondly, that responsiveness is transferred to the car. I suddenly depend on appropriate tire pressure, calipers, brakes, suspension, steering wheels, alert signals, road signs, and pavement markings, even other drivers to keep me alive. My life hangs in the balance when I take the risk of getting into a moving vehicle.

Our brain TODAY is responsive to quick or labored health decisions. A solid, healthy, nutritious meal is full of the dietary information your body is expecting and you will feel the effect of eating well. A full days worth or less of physical and mental stress will create misery for the autoimmune patient’s systemic inflammatory mechanisms adding to the everpresent disease symptoms they would much rather be liberated from. Choices have consequences and that’s a rule of law in this universe.

Sometimes health is marketed in bottles and powders but conscience knows that ultimately we must make the right health decisions over a long period of time. Or else….

It’s not unwise to think of health as something you control. In fact, the odds of health being  properly managed by healthcare practitioners is looking more dismal as the years go by. If doctors continue to refuse the natural, conservative treatment options and instead proclaim a biased, self imposed position of simply “managed care”, generational decline will continue to show its ugly head.

But we can reverse the tide!

We have to “get physical”, standing up for genetic sustainability, believing in nature to correct itself and maintain balance after we treat dysfunction or disease naturally.

We naturally decline. We can naturally build ourselves back up again. That is the science of natural healthcare and it starts by believing that we have the power within us.

If I had a rock band, this would be my song.

Chiropractic and alternative medicine’s modus operandi is to help restore the health that has been lost by natural means. Why doesn’t this makes sense to everyone? If health is lost by natural means, it can be restored by natural means!

This could look  like nutritional counseling, correcting subluxations (sensory dysafferentation), acupuncture, physical therapy, homeopathy, herbal medicine, massage therapy and a hundred other techniques. It could be a conversation or prayer, time spent in a natural environment, etc. But the bottom line is, Vis medicatrix naturae or natura medica,  which literally means “the healing power of nature”.

You are alive! You are living tissue and all living tissue runs the endurance race of chemical pathways, guided by genetic information and kept spinning by the science of nutrition.

The chiropractic story parallels this concept of healthcare.  As a teacher of health related principles and practical implementation for patients, my overarching goal first, is to convince the patient of this objective truth: your healing powers are pre-wired, engineered into your DNA and all you have to do is give it the natural resources it needs to thrive and eliminate the bad juju, the toxic elements  in your life.

But you must understand the chiropractic story in its entirety.

Chiropractic and other natural health options aim to improve all health measures. That includes laboratory biomarkers, weight measures, thermoregulation,  emotional stress, organ dysfunction, the complex of vertebral subluxations, normalizing sensory integration, pain management, and the list goes on and on. But matter has limitations which means disease and dysfunction have limitations. Give the body what it needs, maintaining anatomical integrity and tissue’s informational fidelity systems and you’re on the right track to improving/maintaining your health.
