Healing is an inside job
Hippocrates the father of medicine is quoted as saying “Natural forces with in us are the true healers of disease”. Over the next 2000 years traditional medicine has taken a path that is far from where medicine had begin. If health is what we are after would it not make more sense to build up our inborn potential for healing? Combating disease is like trying to shovel the darkness out of a room. Darkness just like disease is not the entity. To remove darkness all that is required is to flick on a light switch, to remove disease all that is required is to raise our levels of health. After all, health is an inside job.
What is the one true cause of all disease? It is the abnormal function of cells. Understanding this principle can be the first step in returning and maintaining your health. If disease is the abnormal function of cells than healing and health is returning proper function and maintaining that function in those cells. Healthy cells together make healthy organs, which in turn make healthy life systems, which together make a healthy body. Of course, having a healthy nervous system free from interference is also needed to keep this miracle rolling, as well as supporting your adjustments by fulfilling your requirements for nutrition, mindset and movement.
Thomas Edison said it best “The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.”
People today are seeking a different kind of Doctor, one that will look at the whole person and not the symptoms they walk through the door with. They are educating themselves and asking the tough questions. They are becoming empowered with the decisions that they make. Chiropractic care is and will always be the natural approach to health and healing… It’s an inside job.
