I just re-listened to a story about Dr. John Carver's father adjusting a dead man. This is not a new story. It happened decades ago. The problem is I had to remind myself about it. Luckily another chiropractor had re-posted it Facebook. It's sad how these marvelous stories get buried.
His father was on a home visit to see a dying man. He arrived just as the medical doctor signed the death certificate.
This sounded like a time before EMS, police and investigation of foul play. It was just a sick man who died at home.
Then Dr. Carver and his son (who was too young to be a chiropractor but enjoyed accompanying him on home visits) entered the dead man's room to pay their respects.
You know what happened next. Dr. Carver adjusted the man and he lived another 14 years. In fact, the man proudly displayed the death certificate in his shop. It was quite the conversation starter.
Did the chiropractor go visit someone because of back pain? No. That's the brainwashing of today. Chiropractic is not about back pain. He visited a dying man because the man's nervous system needed balancing. That's it.
That's the magic of chiropractic.
Chiropractic is the key to the mind-body lock. The magic is actually in your nervous system.
Chiropractic did not lose it's magic. But it seems we don't respect the genius of the nervous system as it coordinates the body.
If you want to unlock this mysterious process, chiropractic helps us access the brain. (It's really not mysterious. We just can't accept simple things. We have a tendency to make things complicated.)
The magic has not been lost. But you have to reclaim it.
