January 20th marked the inauguration of Barack Obama as the 44th president of the United States! This is breaking news for those of you recently rescued from a desert island, lacking a broadband connection in your home, or too busy with your own reality TV film crew to pay attention to the rest of us. Here’s more news: Around the fourth week of your embryonic development, a very powerful boss took office in your body! Responsible for governing ALL parts of your body, this biological boss can delegate, coordinate and command millions of times faster than you can say Air Force One! This inner president, known as the brain and spinal cord, proudly carries the title of CNS – the Central Nervous System.
Like the Secret Service, membranes called “meninges” protect the brain and spinal cord. Along with the boss, they live safely in the large white house of your spinal and cranial bones. Nerves course from the spine like first-year interns ambitiously carrying classified messages to all the destinations in the body. When the CNS commands with accuracy, the state-of-the-union is OPTIMALLY HEALTHY and the FUNCTION IS BALANCED. Any interference to the proper communication from the CNS to the tissue cells is grounds for impeachment of well-being and ear-marks the body for disease.
Those of you who do watch the news may now feel like you do when given an overdose of talking heads and political pundits. You may be wondering, “Where is this piece headed? Just give me the sound bite.”
The central nervous system controls and coordinates all of the functions of the body… every organ, gland and muscle… EVERYTHING! Interference to the nervous system causes dysfunction and loss of coordination. Disease is the final result of the breakdown of communication between the nerve cells and tissue cells. Loss of nerve supply equals loss of health. SICK SIGNALS=SICK BODIES.
How does nerve interference occur? The answer can be found in the work of chiropractic’s pioneers, Dr. D.D. Palmer and his son, Dr. B.J Palmer, and more recently from the findings of Bruce Lipton, Ph.D. Dr. Lipton is a cell biologist best known for his groundbreaking research performed at Stanford University School of Medicine.
Sick signals originate from one of three primary categories:
How can you bring your signals back to a clear and normal state? Below are a few examples of possible solutions for each of the three categories:
By understanding the full jurisdiction of your body’s commander and chief, a new era of health can be ushered in. If your BEST HEALTH is desired, go right to the top of the chain of command. Perform all that is necessary to ensure that the central nervous system can govern free of the corruption of sick signals. This may require reevaluating your choices and/or seeking professional assistance. After all, inaction may be costly. Who needs another bail out – especially of ill body parts overtaxed by poor neurological leadership?
