Living a healthy chiropractic lifestyle will keep you from getting sick.
However, sometimes the Body, according to the Principle of Limitation of Matter, has other ideas. When a child gets the flu, for example, the nose is running, they are coughing, they have fever, the eyes are swollen and glassy, they have loss of appetite, they are lethargic and not feeling well at all, they feel weak, have lost their spark, etc. And parents have been conditioned to believe that their child is SICK! Yes! This is sickness at its best. But….I have news for you: All those symptoms have an amazing reason for being. They are not random. The nose runs to excrete the virus. They have fever which is the result of extra work produced by the body as defense mechanisms are brought online to fight the invading organism. And of course, all that extra work produces extra heat – we call this Fever. Simple! All these activities are designed for one purpose only – to restore health and remove the invading organism. That puts this whole “sickness thing” in a very different light. It means that all these things are not random effects that need to treated.
It means that the body is doing exactly what it was designed and programmed to do. This is not an example of “sickness.” This is an example of health! Ok..It may not be pleasant – your child may not like it, but it is an expression of health. There is an Innate Intelligence ruling your body. And ultimately, that Innate force knows what is best for that body at that time. And it also knows that all body systems need to be exercised regularly in order to function at their optimum level at all times – that is the expectation, isn’t it? And just like any other part of the body, the immune system also needs to be exercised. So..I personally feel we have a built-in “clock” which activates the immune system, temporarily lowers our immune guard and response and we are then attacked by a bug of some sort. The response is a sudden activation of the immune system to fight off the invading organism.
This is an expression of health – the body doing exactly what it is programmed and designed to do.
