THE ALTERNATIVE ROUTE
TO TRUE HEALTH

If you believe that the only road to good health is paved with pills, potions, and surgery, this is not the article for you. If your favorite part of watching TV is making a list of the new drugs you can ask your doctor or pharmacist about, stop reading right here.

If you are looking for a road where the foundation of good health is realized, read on. Educated individuals are disenchanted with the healthcare their parents knew. Simply seeing the medications their aging parents now take is enough to create concern. What they visualize is a future where one symptom is treated with a pill that creates another symptom without ever finding the cause of the first symptom. Add to this the terrifying statistics of deaths due to medical procedures and intelligent people just want something that is real health. They want different. They want BETTER.

Hippocrates (460-377BC), the "father of medicine", said, Look well to the spine, for it is the cause of all disease and infirmity. Since 1895, chiropractic has been providing healthcare that, in many instances, is superior to anything else available, utilizing the relationship of the spinal column and the nervous system it protects. Chiropractic is built on the premise that the body is born to be healthy. Chiropractic is built on the universal law that a fundamental necessity of good health is a sound nervous system.

Scientists tell us that the brain controls all structure and function in the body by sending messages through the nerves to all organs, systems, and tissues. No tissue, organ, or system in the body can do one solitary thing without information from the brain. Any interference to the nerve supply endangers health.

A major interference to the nervous system, such as a gunshot wound to the spine, can cause permanent paralysis and functional shutdown. A minor interference can create dysfunction and a state of dis-ease in the body. What chiropractors address is a specific type of interference called a spinal misalignment or vertebral subluxation. A subluxation is interference to the nerve system caused by the misalignment of one or more bones of the spine. These misalignments stress the area around them and interfere with the brain sending vital messages through the nerves. Malfunction results. Symptoms, such as pain in or around the innervated area, follow the malfunction.

If you know chiropractic, you know it can dramatically improve health by correcting these interferences to nervous system health. A chiropractor is uniquely qualified to carefully adjust the misalignments to the spinal bones. The nerves can then regain their ability to perform their normal functions. This aids the body in returning it to a state of real health without dangerous medications or surgery. Chiropractic is the answer to which road you should take with healthcare.
