For the sake of this article I would like to address two parts of this relationship we have with ourselves. The first, perhaps most important, and the one that we will discuss the least is our mental or emotional relationship. In short, each of us has a paradigm from which we process all information. It is the context from which we think. A fish does not reflect on the fact that it lives in water. It just does, and, therefore, all of its decisions are made accordingly. So as a fish is born to water we were born into a family and that family has had a large part in creating the paradigm from which we view our whole life, for good or ill, sadly too often for ill. I would contend that this paradigm creates the backbone of our emotional relationship with ourselves. It determines, to a large extent, whether we are happy or sad as well as our daily decisions. With great effort that paradigm can be changed to a certain extent, but that is for another article.
The second part of this relationship is physical, or actually neuro-chemical to be precise. It is the relationship of each cell in our body to every other cell, and this relationship is controlled and mediated by none other than our central nerve system, the brain, spinal cord, and nerves. We have a whole lot of cells in our body. I’ve heard billions, trillions, and even quadrillions, so for the sake of this visual lets use one number I have heard, 40 quadrillion. So, the job of the nerve system is to connect every one of these 40 quadrillion cells with every other one, at the same time. It’s kind of like each and every cell has a tiny little smart phone up to its little ear both talking and listening at the same time, connected to every other cell at the same moment. Better than 4G that’s for sure. Go Verizon. This would be the mathematical equivalent of 6 million planet earths each with 7 billion people, each with a cell phone in hand, all talking to each other at the same time, and no dropped calls. Definitely not Verizon.
This is the relationship that your body has with itself and this is the relationship that subluxation interferes with by damaging nerve function. It creates our next article’s topic... Dropped Calls. Enjoy.
