10 Fundamental Scientific Truths Regarding Health and Sickness

1. All living things, including humans, are composed of individual living cells working harmoniously together in a self healing and self regulating ecosystem to maintain homeostasis, health and life.

2. Our cells are innately or genetically equipped from birth with all the necessary intelligence to function properly. Our cells are programmed for homeostasis and health and they NEVER dysfunction without a physical, emotional, chemical or spiritual stressor.

3. Our cells are all genetically programmed with the perfect recipe for health; it is our choices and our living environment that determines whether or not the proper ingredients are supplied.

4. Health by definition is a state of consistent homeostatic cell function.

5. Sickness, by definition, is a lack of consistent homeostatic cell function. Sickness is a lack of health just like darkness is a lack of light.

6 .The function of our cells determines our states of health and sickness.

7. The cause of all non-homeostatic cell function is STRESSORS (not random chance).

8. All health stressors can be divided into one of two categories:

A. Toxicities

B. Deficiencies

9. Because cells are born with all the required innate genetic intelligence for homeostasis, cells always function perfectly in relation to any given environment. Symptoms do NOT represent an error in the intelligence of cells.

10. In order to function properly and produce health cells must have all requirements met and be free of toxicity and have no deficiencies.

Chiropractic is one way to prevent deficiencies in the body. The chiropractic lifestyle (better nutrition, exercise, sleep and emotional well-being) strives to allow a life with minimal toxicity and deficiencies.

Sickness is a lack of health

.......just like

Darkness is a lack of light.

As chiropractors, we always strive to help you see your body as whole and connected. In the medical field, there is a specialist for each body part and the paradigm is taught that each body part or system is independent. The truth is that the body functions as a whole and when there is a deficiency in one area, a symptom can be produced elsewhere. For example, when you have spinal Subluxation the nerve supply attached to that spinal level affects whatever organ or tissue is at the other end of the nerve. That neck Subluxation of C5 may be causing heart damage, not just neck pain. Your adjustments are helping your whole body. -Dr. Michael C. Polson
