Giving YOUR Body What it Needs
The human body is the most incredible machine on the planet. It is designed to heal, grow, and function if you give it what it needs. Most people understand if you do not take in enough vitamins and minerals you will get sick. Different conditions can be the result of being deficient in different nutrients. If you do not get enough sleep most people know that the body will not function properly. People also know that if you take in too much of something you can also get sick. Alcohol, nicotine, sugar, salt, and caffeine are examples of such things.
What many people do not understand is how important the nervous system is. Your brain sends signals down the spinal cord, along nerves, to every cell, tissue, and organ in your body. If you cut the nerve to an area of the body, that area will not function. It is like cutting the power cord to a lamp. If you do this the lamp will not work. Now imagine a lamp with a cord that has been frayed, but not cut in half. The light may still work, but you may end up with a light that gets dimmer and brighter or flickers on and off. No matter what you do to try to correct the problem, change the light bulb, plug it into another outlet, or shake it, the problem will remain. The only way to correct the problem is to make sure the wires are touching and the connection is solid.
Spinal misalignments cause irritation to the nerves. Your organs, tissues, and cells at the end of an irritated nerve will not function properly. If you end up with a health problem because of this, you will look for a cure. No matter how much medication you take it will not correct this problem. It may mask the symptoms for a while, but the only true solution is to remove the irritation or interference. Once this occurs, your miraculous body will function better. It is essential to give the body what it needs in order to heal. In this case, it is less interference. Could your ongoing health problems be due to interference to your nerves? There is one way to find out. Chiropractors are specialized physicians that focus exclusively on finding and removing nerve interference.
