“We Chiropractors work with the subtle substance of the soul. We release the imprisoned impulse, the tiny rivulet of force, that emanates from the mind and flows over the nerves to cells and stirs them into life. We deal with the majestic power that transforms common food into living, loving, thinking clay; that robes the earth with beauty, and hues and scents the flowers with the glory of the air.” -B.J. Palmer, developer of Chiropractic
The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. We see this everyday as Chiropractors. If we were merely the sum of our parts we would be nothing more than a cadaver. But we have an innate (or inner) intelligence that keeps us living, moving and breathing.
So, just like B.J. says, we work with that innate intelligence every time we adjust you. Yes, the adjustments will help your back pain, your headaches, your carpal tunnel…but even more than that, the adjustments release that inborn healer inside of you that knows how to create new skin over a cut, that knows how to regulate all your bodily functions without a thought from you.
“And yet you ask can Chiropractic cure appendicitis or the flu?” Have you more faith in a spoonful of medicine than in the power that animates the living world?”
