The premise of what we do in our offices is that your body heals itself. Another way we put this is by saying the best Doctor in the world is your body. Or “the power that made the body, heals the body. “ So, how do we harness this healing power inside of us?
Imagine a lightbulb with a dimmer switch. The concept is that the brighter the light in the bulb the better your nerve supply in your body, and the more vitality and health you have.
Over time, the physical, chemical, and emotional stressors of life can shift our posture and overall performance to the point that stress is placed on our nerve system. This will diminish the life force that we all have coursing over our nerves – much like a light that is turned to a dim setting.
This condition is called a sub-lux-ation. The word sub means less than, and the Latin word for light is lux. Therefore, “sub-luxed” means “less light.” Lets face it, who wants to live in a dim light?
The point of this is for you to have some sort of visual, or mental image of what happens inside your body when you lay down on our table to receive an adjustment. As you are adjusted, stress is shifted off your spinal nerves, and your central nerve system begins to fire more nerve supply between your body and your brain. This nerve supply, this life, is what coordinates all healing and repair inside your body.
This is why we recommend regular Chiropractic check-ups to minimize subluxations (misalignments) in your spine that occur from day to day stress… and why we always say “your power is on” after you are adjusted! 💡because the more light the better!!!!!
