Dr. Catherine Luib, D.C., L.Ac. San Diego Holistic Health says “As a Chiropractor, I believe that the power of specific chiropractic adjustments restore normal nerve function and enhance our overall expression and quality of life.”
The nervous system is the source of all life expression. It is the conduit of transmission for all the activity of the nerves and brain, the master control system of the body. Well known chiropractor, Dr. Christopher Kent explains this understanding through his lectures by describing it in depth. He states, “Everything we experience is processed through our nervous system. If our nervous system is not functioning to its optimal level, our perception of the world is distorted and our ability to respond appropriately is compromised. This not only affects our physical health, but also our emotional and psychological function as well.”
Our nervous system is a pathway of vital energy that transmit these impulses of life and impulses of intelligence from the brain to the body and then back to the brain. If there is any disconnect between these pathways and the way in which these information are relayed, our ability to express life fully becomes affected. Chiropractic calls these impairments “Subluxations” which are often related to biomechanical constraints and misalignments of the spine, cranial and other joints throughout the body. What is important to know is that when joints develop abnormal motion due to the changes of structure, the very communication back to the brain is adversely affected.
“There is a vast difference between treating effects and adjusting the cause. “ – DD Palmer
The only effective way to address subluxations of the spine, cranial and other joints in the body is to adjust it. Why bother with pain killers? Go to the source of the problem and fix the problem directly. More often than not, a simple visit to the Chiropractor for an alignment is the best answer.
The profession of chiropractic is so unique in that it holds to it its own science, art and philosophy. The science of chiropractic is to locate, analyze and adjust the misaligned areas and by doing so, assisting the innate ability of the body to heal itself. This is where we see the optimal nerve system take its proper function to best serve the body.
The reality is this- when we free up the nerve system, it can then perform at its best for us. The result is an amazing yield of greater life expression and experiences for all levels of our very existence: mental, emotional, spiritual, physical, etc. THIS IS WHY chiropractic is not just for any aches and pains or for any injury from a motor vehicle accident. Chiropractic does not treat diseases, rather it augments the body’s natural ability to heal itself and function at its best. Chiropractic adjustments restore optimal performance as how we were made to be.
That said, chiropractic also recognizes all the extreme increases in stressors that have become a part of our everyday modern lifestyles. These stressors all range from physical, emotional and chemical. Another important thing to remember is that everything that happens to us– physically, emotionally and chemically—imprints itself in our brains via the nervous system. Therefore, it makes much sense to be very aware of what we expose and surround ourselves to. We must practice prevention and wellness in all that we do, eat, drink, etc.
Do not be surprised to know that philosophical chiropractors also tend to awaken perspectives not only on nutrition, exercise and healthy habits but also on how we conceive, sustain pregnancy and give birth. Traditionally, chiropractors guide their patients and community to look at the most natural ways of living with an underlying respect for the natural design and function. Some chiropractors may even assist us to explore our interaction with others in our community and within our own selves. How we are able to express ourselves as living, loving human beings are very much directly interrelated with our nerve system function. It all comes back to that, how incredible.
