Outline: Chiropractic is based on the understanding that our bodies are in a continuous state of healing.
Main DigestChiropractic is based on the understanding that our bodies are in a continuous state of healing. Healing takes place in all living people. This healing is directed by the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord).
This is the focus of the Chiropractor, to make sure the communication is open from the brain to the body and from the body back to the brain. Chiropractic health care has been traced back to China and Greece in 2700 BC and 1500 BC. Even Hippocrates, the Greek physician, whom all medical practitioners swear oath to, who lived from 460 to 357 BC detailed the importance of chiropractic care.
It only came to the United States in 1895 when Daniel David Palmer founded the chiropractic profession in Davenport, Iowa. During the ensuing years, chiropractors have been called "quacks," "snake oil doctors," among many other things. But the National Health Institute of Complimentary Alternative Medicine now recognizes chiropractic health care.
Chiropractic clinics are springing up everywhere in America. Young, new chiropractors are surfacing daily. One of the leading new schools of Chiropractor is Life University of Murrieta, GA. When I search for a chiropractor these days, I want to see a degree on their wall from Life University. Why? Because these young chiropractors, whether they admit it or not. are schooled in holistic health care. The ones on the cutting edge encourage good nutrition, exercise, diet and spiritual wellness.
An example between the difference of a family physician and a chiropractor came to life to me several years ago when I had a bulging disk in my lower back. My family physician sent me to a neurologist who immediately x-rayed it and scheduled surgery. "Not so fast, " I said. I found a new chiropractor in town that had graduated summa cum laude from Life University. He introduced me to the basics of holistic health care. During weeks of spinal adjustments, he was able to relieve the pain.
The key word in chiropractic is subluxation. Subluxations cause dis-ease. Chiropractors do not treat diseases. They simply detect and correct subluxations so that healing can take place in the central nervous system. As a metaphysician, these treatments are better than traditional methods. My family physician was only able to subscribe a painkiller, and we all know that these can become addictive.
Chiropractor health is drug free! The human body is able to heal itself.
The God-mind within us heals. Our bodies are energy fields in every cell. The energy flow from a chiropractor's hands comes into contact with the energy field of that part of the body that needs healed. There are techniques you can use yourself to help your body self-heal using your God-mind. We will address those practices in coming articles. "Quantum Healing," a book written by Dr. Deepak Chopra, explores the frontiers of mind/body medicine, and is very useful to understanding holistic health care. "Somehow human cells have evolved to a state of formidable intelligence," he writes. "At any one time, the number of activities being coordinated in our bodies is quite literally infinite."
The professional practitioner should first practice meditation to contact God within as much as possible. Ideally, the meditative consciousness achieved should continue during the healing practice itself.
The touching of psychic or chakra centers along the spinal column can help to stimulate the psychic energy chemistry of the body into motion so as to effect a healing on the psychic level. A simple affirmation is useful: "From the heart of the universe located in the spiritual heart of my body, the healing light that is the presence of God flows through my arms into my hands and through my hands as healing that part of the body that my hands touch. For relief and healing now received, I thank the healing presence of God."
