Chiropractic: Following the Natural Laws of Biology

When someone first comes in for care, I review a consent form before I ask the person to sign it.  It is important to discuss what chiropractic is and what it is not.

One of the first things I mention is that it is my job to teach my practice members the natural laws of biology.

After all, whatever the body is going through, it is happening for  a logical reason.  Pain and sickness are due to logical reasons.  Not all treatment protocols used today follow the natural laws of biology.  It makes sense to understand what is stressing the body and making a change to do the opposite.  In Dr. Hyman's recent article he discusses how doctors will address high blood sugar by prescribing a medicine that lowers blood glucose levels.  So these medicines makes the liver release less glucose into the blood, rather than letting the pancreas send the same message to the liver.  Diabetes doctors call this problem a "leaky liver," but I can't find much of an explanation as to why the pancreas and liver are both falling down on the job.  Is it that much easier to take a pill than learn what our vital organs are responding to?

Here's another example.  From a chiropractic point of view, a muslce relaxant medication does not relax a  muscle spasm.  It actually works to depress the central nervous system.  While the muscle becomes "depressed," the cause of the spasm is never addressed. Do you want to depress the entire central nervous system, really?

Read more about Dr. Hyman's interest in not missing the "subtle manifestation of illness."  And keep up with your chiropractic Don't Just Feel Better; Do Everything Better Plan because we will be following natural laws.
