First, it was repeated glaciers that formed the nearly mile deep, mile wide, four mile long valley that we all enjoy today. Frozen water under the force of gravity slowly over thousands of years carved away at the weaker granite leaving only the tough stuff. This is a tribute to edifices such as Cloud’s Rest, Half Dome, North Dome, Sentinel Dome, Glacier Point, The Three Brothers, and El Capitan. These points were made of stuff so strong that they survived the glaciation process…survival of the fittest. They had the luck of being made of stone that was denser than the surrounding rock that was eventually grinded down and carried away.
I see a chiropractic implication in this…of course. Humans too are subjected to the survival of the fittest postulate. But we are not solely dependent upon being made of stronger or denser stuff to survive, but we each have an additional ally on our sides that counters the erosive powers of time and gravity, and uses the forces of thermodynamics, chemistry and physics to create health and well being. Without this ally we would quickly succumb to the same forces that destroy rock and create mountains and our lifespan would be short indeed. This ally is what we term Innate Intelligence.
Think about it. There is nothing in the rock that cares about whether it is big or small, or whole or in pieces. It is a rock. But something in your body cares. It is a something that loves you and cares for you and uses the same forces that wear down the rock, that wear down you, to build and continually rebuild your body for 60, 70, 80, 90, 100 years. It knows what to do each and every time. It always makes the right decision. It is perfect. So why do we eventually die? Despite the perfect Innate Intelligence that we all have our bodies will still succumb to the same forces that helped to create us. In this universe, with these laws of physics, that is inevitable. But for now we each have Innate. So in the next article I will discuss the forces of Innate and how they act upon our body, and more importantly, how subluxation interferes with these life giving forces. Stay tuned.
pinal �Xta`�Jx�Jegeneration and/or herniation. And you know that the purpose of the chiropractic adjustment is to correct the subluxation as much as possible to help prevent the progressive degeneration that is subluxation.
But as a medical doctor you only know to treat the symptoms with your pen and pad until the symptoms are so bad that surgery can be done. What you don’t know or don’t care about is that with every pain med taken to cover or mask the pain, you are actually helping to accelerate the degeneration of the spine by letting your patient do things that he couldn’t do if he were in pain and shouldn’t do while he’s taking a drug that masks the pain. This allows the joints to wear out faster and faster. No one can stop the effects of aging, gravity, and life, but while chiropractic adjustments slow the process, pain meds actually accelerate it. This information could save you or someone you love lots of pain, money, suffering and time. I hope you share it.
