Cycle of Health – How Chiropractic Works

How Chiropractic Works

For 24 centuries most of the world has depended on the doctor of medicine to cure health problems, yet the world is still sick and getting sicker. But more than forty million Americans have switched their thinking about doctors and each year millions are switching. They are switching to Chiropractic.

Medicine became “scientific” with the appearance of bacteriology. Since then, the education of the medical man has centered around the germ theory of dis-ease and has focused almost exclusively on germs causing dis-eases.

Although progress has been made in the fight against germs, medical science is beginning to realize that it is actually the degree of natural immunity, natural body defense, and vitality which determines the success or failure of any treatment.

The vast majority of conditions have been ignored

Because the medical profession has been preoccupied with germs, viruses and infections, the vast majority of conditions, ills and dis-eases that trouble mankind, have been ignored. 15,000,000 Americans suffer from chronic headaches, another 28,000,000 have arthritis. Heart disease is still the No. 1 killer. Chronic fatigue, high blood pressure, stomach ulcers and nervous disorders still must be dealt with. Hay fever, asthma, and sinuses make hundreds of thousands miserable and sciatica plagues millions. Chronic backaches increase every day.

Orthodox medicine has failed to meet these challenges, while a new kind of doctor has emerged – the Doctor of Chiropractic – the largest, drug-free healing profession in the world. Chiropractic gets sick people well and prevents the healthy from getting sick.

None of the body functions “just happen”

Your heart doesn’t just happen to beat. Your lungs don’t just happen to inhale and exhale. Your stomach does not just happen to digest your dinner. All doctors know that your brain and nerve system coordinate these functions which make life instead of death, health instead of sickness.

It is your brain and nerve system which causes your heart to beat 72 times per minute, 60 minutes every hour, 103,680 times every 24 hours and pump 4,320 gallons of blood through nearly 100,000 miles of blood vessels, thus supplying oxygen and nourishment to every cell in the body, some 50 – 75 trillion of them.

Because your brain and nerve system direct it, today you will breathe 23,040 times, digest about 3 1/4 pounds of food, drink and process about three quarts of liquid, speak about 4,800 words, move over 600 muscles and exercise millions of brain cells.

None of these things “just happen.” The nerve system – often called the Master System – controls every function either directly or indirectly in your body. This makes you a whole human being rather that a collection of parts.
