Do you know your body has the innate power to heal itself?
It's true! Your body can, and does, heal. Let’s explore how it does this.
Think about what happens when you get a paper cut on your finger . . . it stings, it bleeds a little, maybe gets a little sore, the bleeding stops, the pain dissipates, and the cut heals. You didn't even have to think about it, your body just healed that cut for you. A cut is a great example because it is something that we can see. What do you think is happening internally? Your body is constantly healing. Our cells are always cycling through, killing off the bad and making the good. We all have "cancer" cells in us all the time. The only reason why we don't all express a cancer disease process is because our "wicked" smart body knows to kill off those nasty cancer cells. When there is a breakdown in the system, when something isn't working right, that’s when a cancer cell might not get caught and killed, or a cut won't heal, or a cold won't go away or many other unpleasant aliments can arise. The fact remains that when everything is functioning at 100%, your body heals itself. Do you think you are functioning at 100%?
So how is it that our body is so darn smart and what controls all this self-healing? The answer is the nerve system. It is the master control system of the body. I don't want to oversimplify things, there are a lot of physiological processes happening to ensure that everything is in working order, but your nerve system is command central. Your brain receives signals from your body and in response sends messages back out to your body. Your nerves act as the go-betweens, the relay runners of the messages from brain to body and body to brain. When your brain, your spinal cord and your nerves are all in working order, things run smoothly. However, what happens if there is miscommunication somewhere along the line? What if a few bad cells pop up and the brain gets the message and sends the command out for those cells to be killed, but the message doesn't get out? It’s like a game of telephone where maybe the message got out but it was muffled or mixed up. So what happens then? Maybe only a few of the bad cells get killed or maybe good cells get killed instead- now we have a bigger problem and it all started with a simple breakdown in communication.
Your body possesses an innate intelligence. This is how it knows what to do, how to heal, how to keep itself in tip top shape. All your body needs from you is the right fuel to keep it going. If you aren't able to fuel it properly, like putting bad gas in a car, your body breaks down. So what is this fuel your body needs? Proper nutrition, clean water, adequate sleep, and appropriate exercise. And what if you haven't always given it those basic things? There may be some breakdowns happening, some messages muffled, some signals confused. So in addition to cleaning up your diet and getting your groove on, there is a very powerful tool which will help clear the channels and facilitate proper communication and that tool is. . . Chiropractic care! Chiropractic care helps the body to restore its natural ability to heal itself. Chiropractic adjustments remove interference in your nerve system. When the interference is removed and the communication restored . . . ahhh. . . YOUR BODY has the power to heal!
And if you still don't believe me, I suggest giving it a try so you can see for yourself!
