As you can see, we have now reached 40 weeks! This means that if we have been changing with each week’s new challenge, then we are now at a point of rebirth. It takes 40 weeks for a baby to be full term in utero. This is the achievement point that we are now at within this year. Have you used it wisely for a rebirth? Or do you need to kick it up a bit or two as the year comes to a close? Either way, this week is a new week and today is a new day.

I find it perfectly coincidental that this week’s change is related to one of the passions in my life. Not just chiropractic, but getting adjusted since birth! I have been blessed to provide this for my child and I have seen the exceptions in him in countless ways compared to other children in regards to health as well as developmental milestones. So… this week we are going to make sure we clear our nervous systems!

The nervous system is the first thing to form when sperm and egg meet. It forms the neural tube which them forms the spinal cord, brain and associated nerves. This is what then tell the rest of the body when and how to form from the eyes, muscles, skin, organs, neurotransmitters, vitamins, minerals, chemicals and much more. The nervous system is responsible for running ALL parts of the body like electrical cords going to whatever electronic device it controls. Without the message or electricity, nothing will happen.

When we have interference in these messages, we first start to have dysfunction, then dis-ease and then poor life quality continues. Considering we only feel 10% of what is really happening in our body, basing our health on how we feel is in no way a direct relation to how we are functioning. As you know, a diagnosis of cancer, heart disease, diabetes, fibromyalgia, any autoimmune disease, stroke and so on are all issues that did not occur over night. It took time as we may have “felt” healthy as well as an “If it ain’t broke, don’t mess with it” sort of attitude.

There is no way that you can detect when your nerves have interference. Even on my own body, I can guess if I have nerve interference but I need a chiropractor to not only determine it, but correct it as well. With that, chiropractors are the only doctors that understand truly how the body works via the nervous system as well as being the only doctors that are trained to detect and correct these interferences called subluxations.

The first adjustment in history restored a man’s hearing! Later, DD Palmer helped someone with heart problems heal with an adjustment and eventually his son, BJ, who developed the profession not only helped heal Dr. Mayo’s wife, but also the patients that the Mayo Clinic could not get better. BJ also with the help of an osteopath took over Clearview Sanitarium in Davenport, Iowa and helped heal countless institutionalized patients through chiropractic care, whole foods diet and medication elimination. Many of these people were able to be released to live healthy, happy and now normal lives!

As you can now see, chiropractic is NOT about back pain. It is about restoring LIFE! If we tap back into the potential of innate/inborn intelligence that formed & created us as the brilliant humans we are today, healing and life quality is the end result. Sadly, many chiropractors do not even know this about their own profession but there are thousands of us that do and we are determined to preserve the sacredness within chiropractic for sake of humanity and a better tomorrow.

Good luck as you continue this transformative journey! I know that each week we are all closer to a more whole, happier version of ourselves. Give yourself a hug or pat on the back for all your weeks of hard work! Week 52 is coming so fast!
