For many years, traditional chiropractic’s major premise (an improperly functioning nervous system, due to a spinal subluxation (misalignment) will cause human beings to have a less than optimal expression of health) has been attacked by mainstream medicine. Regardless of the fact that numerous scientific studies have been conducted by medical researchers that clearly demonstrate the extreme importance of neurological and endocrine integrity in a living person; the chiropractic practice objective is still not taken seriously.
As a practitioner of chiropractic, I have dedicated a good portion of my professional career to the arduous task of attempting to educate my patients about the importance of getting their spines checked on a regular basis.
Although my career as a chiropractor has been very rewarding for me personally, it’s also been an exhausting experience in some ways. To have to continuously go against the conventional mindset of the average health care consumer is not always an enjoyable exercise. When just about every person perceives you as a circle and you’re a square, it can definitely get on your nerves after awhile.
Most people think of traditional chiropractic as something that is less than scientific; a drugless therapy for back pain; or a strange form of massage. Traditional chiropractic, of course, has nothing to do with any of those preconceived, public notions. To begin with, traditional chiropractic is based on very scientific principles, has nothing to do with back pain, and is a completely distinct and separate profession from massage therapy.
It’s not difficult to understand traditional chiropractic theory, it’s just damn inconvenient for everyone involved to change a societal paradigm that directly affects the health and well being of every person on the planet. And I’m not even getting into the financial considerations that are involved with changing such a paradigm.
How do you break the news to the average person that they’ve been continuously lied to throughout their lives? How do you explain to people that the best way to affect healthy changes in their bodies is by removing interferences that can and do impede their true expressions of physiology? And finally, how do you drive the point home that synthetically patented drugs, although they can alter the way you feel, can never provide a human being with a better expression of health?
In 2009, a scientific study was published by The Endocrine Society ® titled, “Endocrine –Disrupting Chemicals.” The premise and conclusion of the study demonstrated that certain chemicals we commonly encounter, in our environment and foods, have the abilities to interfere with the human endocrine system. The endocrine system is responsible for regulating and controlling the many hormones in our bodies. It is the chemical messaging system that ensures proper human physiology occurs.
A breakdown or interference in the endocrine system would cause all sorts of problems to occur in an otherwise healthy person. Whenever interference occurs in our body, physiology suffers. Things like cancer and autoimmune disorders begin to show up and healthy people become unhealthy.
The study that was conducted by The Endocrine Society ® speaks volumes about the importance of the nervous system and also traditional chiropractic. Our nervous system (the brain, spinal cord, spinal nerves) regulates and controls the functions of the endocrine system as well as every other system inside us.
The 2009 study proves, quite convincingly, what traditional chiropractic has been practicing and stating for well over a hundred years; an important factor leading to proper health can be easily achieved by simply removing a type of interference from the human nervous system that commonly occurs in the form of a spinal misalignment, also known as a vertebral subluxation.
Regularly visiting a chiropractor to have your spine’s alignment checked, not just because you have back pain, can improve your health drastically. Understand from this point forward that the integrity of your spine’s alignment is of paramount importance to your health. And if it wasn’t for the fact that this structural problem, which occurs in every human being from time to time, generates zero revenue for pharmaceutical companies, you’d see it advertised on the evening news. The sad truth is that because it doesn’t promote Big Pharma’s agenda, it’s disregarded by “science” and made to look “unscientific.”
Be sure you read the study, linked above, in order to gain a better understanding about how important our nervous system really is when it comes to maintaining a proper level of health.
