No two individuals are exactly alike. Although we all have mouths, noses, eyes, organs, bones, etc. that make up our bodies, we ARE different.
What is your blood pressure? What are the levels of your blood chemistry? As you know, there are standard values that are guidelines to determine if you are healthy or not.
What happens if your levels are outside of the standard values? What if your blood pressure value or your temperature value was different than what might be considered “normal?”
Chiropractic was founded upon a concept and continues to be guided by a set of principles that recognize that there is an inherent wisdom that runs your body. If that inherent wisdom, also called innate intelligence, were not be able to communicate properly within your body, then the functioning of your body could be compromised.
It may be one small task (function) that your body should perform, as in digestion: secrete a specific amount of acid needed at a specific moment for the type of food you just consumed.
Who knows whether:
- the production of the acid
- the timing of its presence into the stomach
- or the quantity of the chemical
Your body knows how to do the above functions properly based upon the idea of innate intelligence. However, if there were an interference to the body’s ability to communicate this innate intelligence, you might not get the proper information to digest your food.
At what level of improper digestion do you begin to show symptoms? You might also wonder at what level of improper information to other systems or organs does your body start to show a symptom or condition.
Due to the fact that we are all different, the answers will vary. As I mentioned, it is this individuality that I have always found to be most relevant.
By a simple but significant process, chiropractors are able to detect alterations within the spine that may interfere with the communication of the innate intelligence in you.
