Crisis In Healing…Why Natural Healing Is Still Growing
There is an age old conflict between treating the disease itself vs. the patient as a whole. These opposing viewpoints have not changed, relatively, since 460 B.C….why? The current trend in emphasizing the disease puts our money, time and energy in the magic pill. While this might be efficient for some in times of a crisis, the magic pill does not heal the body as a whole. How about utilizing the most non-invasive form of healing on your body? Natural healing.
The Science Of Natural Healing
In chiropractic, we utilize inductive reasoning. Neuroanatomy and neurophysiology has everything to do with the cause of disease. If you disturb the structure of the human frame, you disrupt the nerve system. We deny that disease “just happens”. The disease process must have a cause and chiropractic seeks that cause. The cause is attributed to a disturbance (subluxation) in the normal flow of neural communication. The chiropractic profession is pretty advanced and continues to make more advancements to understand the reasoning of subluxations. These disturbances create a anatomical dis-relationship with the rest of the body, a.k.a dis-ease.
It’s In The Literature
Show me your evidence of natural healing. Research has and always will provide insight on how the body heals. The truth is that the day to day action of the body and what it is capable of is research within itself. In Collected Papers Of Mechanico-Therapeutics, Dr. Edgar Cyriax states “Every displacement of a vertebra changes the normal condition of pressure, tension, shape, size and length of the surrounding structures. If nature is able to set up compensations, no evil effects ensue.” This statement means that subluxations will create dysfunction and produce symptoms of the body relating to the visceral (internal organs) or non-visceral. Eugenics, Dr. Herman Rubin, M.D. – ” It may never occur to them (medical colleagues) that the headaches, stomach trouble, neuritis or nervous irritability they are attempting to cure may be due to nothing more serious than a displaced vertebra which any competent chiropractor can restore in ten seconds.”
