Health is the vital principle of blissHealth is optimal performance on every level... physical, emotional, spiritual, and intellectual. It is dependent upon the proper balance of body chemistry. Our ability to work well, relate well with others, and have our body function normally is controlled by nerve impulses and the bodyís natural chemicals. The control mechanism of the brain keeps the body chemistry in harmony and regulates body function. In order for this control mechanism to be maintained the nerves that regulate the body chemistry need to be protected. There are bones of the spine called vertebrae that, when properly aligned and moving freely, keep the nerve channels protected. Your body can then use these nerve impulses flowing through those channels to make the right chemicals in proper balance so you can perform at your peak level.
The vertebral subluxation occurs when one or more bones of the spine slip slightly out of place. The vertebrae can no longer move freely the way they are supposed to, and this results in a loss of communication between the brain and the body that makes the necessary chemicals. When the control mechanism is gone, normal performance drops. Unless this is corrected, your body can never function properly again. When the body chemistry is out of balance, nothing works well...you canít sleep properly, you donít perform well at work, and you canít process the nutrients from your food.
The chiropractic adjustment restores the necessary motion to the spine and therefore restores the communication between the brain and the body. By allowing the vertebrae to move freely again the way they are supposed to, normal communication is restored so you can perform optimally on all levels and therefore have optimum health.
