There has become an inexhaustible amount of medical technology and natural cures claiming to get you either well or enhance your health in some way. But although billions of dollars are being spent and more and more doctors and specialists are going into practice every year, the amount of illness, depression, disease and the number of people on prescriptions dramatically increase every year. America has become one of the sickest countries in the world. When it comes to health, medical technology and natural cures obviously are not working out.
The failure of our health care system has made alternatives to medicine very popular. Studies done at Harvard show that more visits were made to alternative health care providers during the last several years than to medical doctors. The vast majority of these visits were made to chiropractors.
Chiropractic schools are beginning to open up at major universities, such as Florida State. Today, chiropractic’s scientific and clinical research has become recognized and published in leading medical and scientific journals. Most professional and Olympic teams now either hire or work with a chiropractor to improve performance, recover from injury and keep their players healthier. For someone to say they do not believe in chiropractic just shows ignorance of a chiropractor’s training, methodology, research and proven success rate.
Chiropractic is the only health care system designed to maximize the natural, God-given strength of the human body and it’s ability to heal itself without the use of drugs, natural cures, surgery or medical technology.
The spine and nervous system totally control all function and healing in a human body. The reason you can eat, breathe, hear, see, sleep and walk is because the spine and nervous system transmit the commands from the brain to the body. If you think about it, the body is actually kind of stupid. The body doesn’t know what to do unless it is told what to do. This being the case, the best actual way to hurt someone is to hurt his or her spine and nervous system. Slips, falls, accidents, childhood mishaps, sports injuries, poor posture, hard work conditions, stress and even the birth process can cause spinal misalignment that leads to damage or interference within the nervous system. Research has shown that these misalignments are the leading cause of many of the unwanted conditions, illnesses and diseases people suffer from every day.
Chiropractors perform spinal adjustments that do NOT crack or loosen the spine to relieve tension and pain, as many people may think. Chiropractors gently adjust the spine and posture to correct spinal misalignment and remove any interference to the nervous system to allow patients of all ages to heal and regain normal God-given function and optimum health.
While prescriptions and over the counter medications have become the third leading cause of death in America, chiropractic is safe. It is so safe that doctors of chiropractic pay only a fraction of what medical doctors pay for insurance. Most of us pay less that people pay for car insurance.
There is only one healer. It’s not a pill, a shot, a vitamin, an herb, a magnet, a medical technology or a doctor of any kind. It is the body. Chiropractic does not treat the symptom or the disease. Chiropractic does not cure the disease because this can be done only by the natural, God-given intelligence from within. Nature needs no help to get you well or keep you well. It just needs no interference. Chiropractic seeks to remove this interference.
Today, more than 6 million chiropractic adjustments are performed on families each week making chiropractic the leading alternative form of health care and the number one profession in the world for restoring well being to mankind.
