We’ve created a throw-away, microwave, fix-me-now society that has permeated every aspect of our culture. This is especially true in what is called “health care”. Everyone wants a quick fix. They want to “feel” better NOW! (and sometimes NOW isn’t soon enough). In order to accommodate this, Western medicine has turned nearly every human physiological process into a “condition” that can be treated with drugs.
- Don’t like being cut off by that jerk during rush-hour? You probably have 312.34 – Intermittent Explosive Disorder
- Trouble getting to sleep after drinking a quad espresso or an energy drink at 9pm? It might be 292.85 – Caffeine-induced Sleep Disorder
- Do you have a strong dislike for solving mathematical equations? There’s a distinct possibility you have 315.1 – Math Disorder
Even PREGNANCY is treated as a disease and more than one-third of all babies are now surgically removed, primarily out of scheduling convenience – quick fix.
What if it’s not really about how we feel?
After all, most cancers are painless until their late stages. You don’t “feel” heart disease until you have a heart attack. Symptoms are NOT the problem – DYSFUNCTION is the problem! There’s not a drug on the market today that improves function – NOT ONE! The quick fix medications don’t fix anything!
So what improves function?
What does it need to do this?
1. A nervous system free from interference
There is no process that does not require TIME.
There are no quick fixes – no shortcuts – no rushing the healing process! Leave behind the myth of the quick fix. Unleash the healing power inside you with chiropractic care. The results will be unmistakable.More
I am absolutely amazed at the wisdom of God. The same power that keeps the planets in orbit, the galaxies in their places and the universe organized is the same as the power that keeps the electrons in place around each atom of each molecule of each cell in your little finger and your entire body.
B.J Palmer, in a short essay on chiropractic put it this way:
We chiropractors work with the subtle substance of the soul. We release the prisoned impulses, a tiny rivulet of force, that emanates from the mind and flows over the nerves to the cells and stirs them to life. We deal with the magic power that transforms common food into living, loving, thinking clay; that robes the earth with beauty, and hues and scents the flowers with the glory of the air.
In the dim, dark distant long ago, when the sun first bowed to the morning star, this power spoke and there was life, it quickened the slime of the sea and the dust of the earth and drove the cell to union with its fellows in countless living forms. Through eons of time it finned the fish and winged the bird and fanged the beast. Endlessly it worked, evolving its forms until it produced the crowning glory of them all. With tireless energy it blows the bubble of each individual life and then silently, relentlessly dissolves the form and absorbs the spirit into itself again.
And yet you ask “Can chiropractic cure appendicitis or the flu?” Have you more faith in a knife or a spoonful of medicine than in the power that animates the living world?
