Sub station? WHAT!? Subluxation. The chiropractic term which many have tried to define over the years. There are two things ALL definitions have in common:
- misalignment of a vertebra upon another
- nerve interference
I've been adjusted for many years (approximately half my life) and after seeing several awesome changes in my life and of those closest to me, I decided to become a chiropractor. It just made sense!
Chiropractic doesn't fix anything. Chiropractic is about one thing: subluxation (finding and removing it). When there is less interference from brain to body, your body functions better. That's just a fact. When we remove subluxation, it allows for your body to heal itself. Quite honestly, we don't even do that! We put a very specific force into the body, and the BODY adjusts itself and then goes on to heal itself.
So I came across a post tonight on Facebook. I know the chiropractor personally, have been to his office, and know he must have been thrilled to have shared:
Had a 12 year old patient with Leukemia. Last week had a blood test by oncologist. WBC count a 2 (non existent immune function) came to me we cleared atlas. 6 hours later had a count of 13 (oncologist stunned)
This guy isn't just any chiropractor. He is an upper cervical chiropractor, and works at clearing subluxation at the top of the neck where the brainstem is located.
This isn't an example of chiropractic healing cancer. This is a prime example of a body without nerve interference healing itself!
THIS is why I decided to become a chiropractor. The body is pretty amazing! It can put to shame a pharmacy in terms of drug creations, and it can create human life with the introduction of ONE cell from another person. We don't have to think about how to beat our hearts, we don't have to think about how to grow a baby or divide cells. We don't have to think about breathing while we sleep... it just happens! You can't say the brain does it, because a dead person has a brain, too. The heart doesn't do it - dead people have hearts. What dead people don't have that living people have... is LIFE.
You can't deny that there is some force doing all these amazing miracles every second of our lives. I certainly can't.
My job isn't to cure you of everything under the sun, and it certainly isn't to be your chiropractic aspirin. I'm going to adjust your subluxations, and let your body heal itself!!!
And that is the miracle of life.
