How can Chiropractic influence your Innate Intelligence?
The philosophy of Chiropractic is based on the premise that the body has the ability to heal itself. This premise based on the innate intelligence of the human body has existed since ‘the beginning’, long before Chiropractic came along in 1895. Therefore, whether you ‘improve’ on your innate intelligence by getting adequate sleep and rest, through proper nutrition, a positive mental attitude, prayer, laughter, a chiropractic adjustment, a de-stress massage, experiencing unconditional love in your life, doing a kind deed for someone etc. - These will all have a positive impact on your psychoneuroimmunology. This much has been proven!
In fact research has shown that laughter increases the size of your arteries and stress decreases the size of your arteries – very important information to know I’d say!
But, let’s go back to innate intelligence and chiropractic. Chiropractors hypothesize that an adjustment or manipulation to the spinal column which houses your central nervous system may have a positive effect when one releases fixations and subluxations of the spine. A reduction in pressure from the facet joints and surrounding tissue may allow for an increase in blood flow, nerve flow, energy flow and as a result a greater expression of your immune system response. This allows for a greater ability and freedom of expression of your innate intelligence. When chiropractors get some amazingly unexpected results from adjusting the spine, then you realize the power of the body, mind and spirit when it is free of restriction, attachment and fear. However, one cannot always reproduce the same results on everyone. Everybody is different and has a unique make-up of genes, cells and nervous system. So, as chiropractors we cannot claim to cure anything. We can only facilitate and let the body respond and do the rest.
Chiropractic philosophy is based on this theory, premise, assumption, principle, - that the body has the ability to heal itself through this life force, this nerve impulse, called innate intelligence, physis, vitalism, chi and the bio-electrical phenomenon, said Jim Parker. Chiropractors stimulate this life force by way of manipulation and adjustment to the spinal column, which houses the nervous system.
Parker went on to suggest that one could not analyse, predict or measure the immeasurable i.e. the life force, energy, innate intelligence - this is what medical science has difficulty with. Although we do need protocols and standards to practice by, it needs to be seen in a holistic framework, that the human body is not a machine, and that there is an infinite innate wisdom at work that cannot be measured or fit into any fixed framework or paradigm.
The Power that made the Body Heals the Body!
