Medicine is based on a deep religious conviction that believes ‘average is normal.’ It therefore concludes that if you are not average, you are not normal. This ab-average state is called a sign or symptom, and by themselves or put together with other signs or symptoms is called a disease, syndrome, condition or just plain sick. The medical objective is to get you back to average with such traditional methods as drugs and surgery or other ‘alternative’ methods. For example, your blood pressure is determined high because it’s higher than average which constitutes your blood pressure to be abnormal. This state of higher than average blood pressure is called hypertension. The objective is to get you back to average and if successful you are labeled healthy. In reality, you are the opposite of a sick person, which is more accurately called ‘not sick.’
Chiropractic is based on the premise that the body possesses an internal system that ’strives for balance.’ This internal system is called your ‘innate intelligence.’ Innate means ‘from within’ and ‘intelligence’ refers to organization. Therefore your body has an ‘innate intelligence’ whose purpose it is to keep the body organized.
As a result, the body is always doing the best it can to strive for balance under the circumstances provided. Therefore it makes good sense to provide the body with better circumstances to strive for balance.
The chiropractor checks your spine for vertebra that are positioned in such a way that it interferes with the nerve system. This is called a vertebral subluxation and if the body is subluxated it will not perform at its potential. The objective of chiropractic is to address this vertebra thus allowing the body a better circumstance to strive for balance.
