Technology is fantastic. I don’t know how we lived without cell phones and iPods. In health care, as with any area of life, however, technology can be an interference. Jump on-line sometime and do a search for common symptoms – you’ll find that you either have a cold or an exotic tropical disease that is certainly fatal. Enter any emergency room after an accident and you’ll likely be CT scanned, X-rayed, MRI’d and be subjected to myriad other tests that will send your bill quickly into the 5-figure range.
William of Occam developed a philosophical rule (circ.1837) that can be used to evaluate health care delivery systems called “Occam’s Razor”
Definition of OCCAM’S RAZOR:
A scientific and philosophic rule that entities should not be multiplied unnecessarily which is interpreted as requiring that the simplest of competing theories be preferred to the more complex or that explanations of unknown phenomena be sought first in terms of known quantities.
In simplest terms: the least complex option is usually the best.
Chiropractic’s Major Premise states:
There is a universal intelligence in all matter continually giving to it all of its properties and actions, thus maintaining it in it’s existence
When we look at the miracle that is LIFE and the complexity of the human body, it’s hard to imagine that drugs and surgery are the “simplest of competing theories”. One needs only to look at the natural world and see that the organizing triune of intelligence, force and matter are present in sufficient quantities to sustain life!
Interference to the expression of universal and innate intelligence is what causes dysfunction and dis-ease.
Chiropractic removes this interference to allow the fullest expression of life.
There is nothing simpler.More
