Your brain is capable of remembering 50,000 different scents, which is probably the reason for the billion dollar perfume industry. A drop of blood contains 5 million red blood cells, 7,000 white blood cells, and thousands of platelets. That is part of our immune system that protects us from foreign invaders. The energy output of the heart in 24 hours is strong enough to raise 3 fully loaded greyhound buses and you don’t have to remember to wind your heart before you go to sleep. Your lungs fill those red blood cells with oxygen to produce oxidation reduction chemical reactions that make our cells one of the most energy efficient machines known to physics. When we eat a hamburger it just doesn’t go to your leg to build muscle. Our digestive system has to take our food and make a new body out of it, otherwise you might end up looking like that hamburger.
All of the millions of functions that are required for our bodies to make us human occur without us thinking about it. It happens automatically thanks to our autonomic nervous system.
The chiropractic adjustment affects the central nervous system and autonomic nervous system more powerfully, more beneficially than any treatment known to modern medical science. All of the activity that makes us human, keeps us healthy, is controlled by our nervous systems. A chiropractic adjustment is improving your overall function as a human. It is not just for a neck pain or a back pain.
Athletes performing at the Olympics are receiving adjustments right before their competition. They are not in pain. They want to perform at their highest possible level. What is keeping you from performing at your highest level? I suspect one reason has to do with the phone call I received at 3am from Missouri 2 days ago. The patient said, my mother told me that chiropractors are not real doctors, but I thought that because I’m in so much pain, I’d give it a try.
The magnificent thing about chiropractic is, you don’t have to be in pain, you don’t have to have anything wrong with you at all to receive tremendous benefits. It is quite the opposite of medicine. Call your doctor of medicine and say, look I’m feeling great, can you give me some medicine for that?
Call your doctor of chiropractic and he can give you something for that. A chiropractic adjustment. It’s not for your back as much as it is for your brain, and if your brain was paying attention to what was written above, you would know that you need your brain working optimally to be an optimal human.
