“The wisdom of the body is responsible for 90% of the hope of patients to recover. The body has a super wisdom that is in favor of life, rather than death. This is the power that we depend on for life. All doctors are responsible for letting their patients know of this great force working within them.” Dr. Richard Cabot, Harvard Medical School
Dr. Cabot is referring to something that chiropractors call innate intelligence. It is the vital force within your body that controls every single cell, tissue, and organ. It is responsible for growth, replacing of worn out tissues, and repair of fractures or other injuries. An egg and sperm first come together to form one cell. Then that cell divides into 2 and then into 4 cells and so on. The first organ that forms from this replicating of cells is the brain and spinal cord. This is the lifeline of your body that is responsible for life to flow. Life flows through the nervous system, from the brain, down the spinal cord, from the inside and out to the entire body. Life flows from Above, Down, Inside, and Out.
Without this communication between the brain and the body innate cannot flow and your body will not heal and function properly. Optimal Health is the body’s expression of innate intelligence at its highest level. The only thing that can heal the body is the power within the body. Healing does not come from a bottle.
A great example of this is when you cut your finger. As soon as you injure the finger your body knows exactly how to repair it and it starts placing down cells to heal the cut. We may put a band aid on it or some type to ointment to ease the pain or discomfort but our body does the healing. If you have any question about this, take a piece of steak and cut it. Then you can put any ointment, dressing, or bandage that you like on it. No matter what you used that steak will be never grow back together because there is no life flowing through it.
The goal of chiropractic is to relieve the interference to the nervous system through the chiropractic adjustment. When the body is free of interference the signals can flow freely between the brain and the body and true health can be expressed.
