So needless to say, Dr. Bourla knows what chiropractic is and I am pleased to share it with you here.
Chiropractic is… about Expressing Life to Your Fullest
Chiropractic has little to do with how one feels and everything to do with how one is expressing life to their fullest potential. What does this mean?
Imagine how life began for all of us (assuming normal anatomy and physiology). We were created by the union of two cells. That process in and of itself is remarkable and is well-orchestrated. By what? To begin, egg cells and sperm cells had to be made. By what? The egg had to develop, mature, undergo preparation and receive a sperm cell that had to find its way through a rather tortuous route. What directed those events and coordinated their timing?
There is a Universal Intelligence in all matter that gives to it all of its properties and actions, thus keeping it in existence. This Universal Intelligence is personified in humans as Innate Intelligence and is responsible for directing all things that have to do with life in humans. The intelligence is expressed as life or energy through your nerve systems and when that intelligence is allowed to express itself fully, you are whole and well. Conversely, when that intelligence is obstructed in any way, you experience less than whole and are less well.
Your state of being is defined by how you express life. You have been trained to be so concerned about your health and/or how you are feeling that you sometimes forget that health is a byproduct of living life to its fullest. When you express your life fully, you are well. You live, age and heal with grace when your body functions as it was intended.
How is your body intended to function? Flawlessly. You are designed to self-heal and self-regulate because intelligence flows through our bodies via the nerve system. Think about this: as you are reading this page, information is reaching your eyes, your eyes send images to your brain, your brain interprets the images of what your eyes saw and you formulate an understanding of this visual process.
At the same time, your heart was beating at a controlled rate, your breathing was regulated such that you received adequate air with which to sustain your life, hormones were produced, your body temperature was maintained to enable you to function optimally, immune cells were produced to help you fight infection, your kidneys filtered your blood and produced urine for elimination, sperm were produced, an egg underwent a maturation process…all of these things happened simultaneously because life was being expressed through your nerve system.
When intelligence travels through your nerve system unimpeded, all systems work in a concerted effort to make your life full and pleasant. This is normal. If you become stressed and your nerve system conveys information less effectively to your body, your cells, tissues, organs and systems function less well. This is NEVER a good situation. The only doctors on the planet who are specifically trained to evaluate the flow of intelligence through your nerve system are CHIROPRACTORS.
It is vital for all human beings, no matter what age, to have their spines checked regularly to assure that vertebrae, which protect the delicate nerves, are not misaligned and causing undue stress on the nerve system.
A nerve system that is unimpeded is capable of transmitting life forces to all parts of the body, resulting in the fullest expression of life. Are you expressing your life’s full potential? Is your family? The only way to know for sure is to have your spine checked by a Chiropractor. It’s your life…live it to its fullest.
