Those that practice chiropractic based on the principles laid out by Dr. D D Palmer and refined by Dr. B J Palmer are very fortunate. You are a special group of individuals, unique in the world today because you live by chiropractic principles.
Chiropractic postulates that nerve interference is a possible causal factor in all disease. Chiropractic teaching and philosophy also presents sound, logical, compelling evidence that labeling symptoms as diseases and treating those symptoms with chemicals and surgery is misguided. For too long, chiropractors have defended the former while neglecting the latter.
Defending the efficacy of subluxation correction has left little time to focus on this other basic tenet of chiropractic: treating symptoms rather than cause is misguided. The growing body of evidence has proven that disease care does not equal health. The current “health care” crisis has brought this to everyone’s attention. Costs are skyrocketing, while quality of life is sinking for millions of Americans.
Principled chiropractic is a precious gift. Combined with rational information regarding the other necessary components of a healthy lifestyle, principled chiropractic has the capability to enhance the lives of millions more than are presently served. The YourSpine.com initiative serves to marry the life enhancing benefits of regular chiropractic care with information that supports the second principle of chiropractic: labeling symptoms as diseases and treating those symptoms with chemicals and surgery is misguided
For the first time in history, a world class health care PR firm, FK Health, is ready to launch our initiative to inform the public why the care or their spine is necessary to ensure proper communication between the brain and every cell, tissue and organ of the body. We will also present information detailing the other components necessary for proper cellular function.
Health is a result of proper cellular function. It really is that simple. Disease is the result of abnormal cell function. The brain controls and regulates, through the nerve system, all cellular function in the body. Chiropractic adjustments remove any impediment to this communication thus allowing the body to function at a higher level of health and vitality.
But it takes more than just adjustments to achieve proper cellular function. It requires a diet of natural, healthy, nutrient rich food, clean pure water, regular exercise, normal sleep and emotional, spiritual health. You cannot deliver any of these things with an adjustment and they certainly don’t come in a pill or capsule.
What is possible is to give practice members compelling reasons why they require all of the aforementioned to achieve health. We can provide clear rational evidence that all of these are required components of a healthy lifestyle, the Chiropractic Lifestyle, where practice members are active participants in their own health care future. Sufficient data and supporting evidence exists. All we need do is embrace it, and explain that this has been the chiropractic way for 114 years. Reflect back on the list and you will notice that none of these requisites can be patented or monopolized. They all require the active, ongoing participation of the health seeker. None can be used to funnel billions of dollars of wealth to one monopolistic group, like the pharmaceutical/medical cartel or industrialized food and beverage production groups.
The current state of industrialized food and medicine is the largest threat to the health of modern citizens. The required diet of natural, healthy, nutrient rich food has been replaced by a chemical cocktail of additives, preservatives, and processing that bears little resemblance to the food of our ancestors. Fluoridated and chlorinated water has replaced the clean pure water which had sustained life for the last 6 million years. We are the most sedentary humans that have ever existed, stressed to our limits and devoid of the emotional and spiritual blessings of living in peace and harmony with our neighbors and our planet.
Principled chiropractic and the fundamental truths which it represents combined and aligned with the other facets of the Chiropractic Lifestyle offer much needed healing to a wounded people. The opposite of industrialized food and medicine is natural food and health care as clearly as war is the opposite of peace. Perhaps with less of the former, we can have more of the latter.
Chiropractic is natural health care. Isn’t it time that health care consumers equate chiropractic care with the other facets of health: a diet of natural, healthy, nutrient rich food, clean pure water, regular exercise, normal sleep and emotional, spiritual health? And isn’t is time you are recognized as the world’s foremost authority on natural health care?
