When farmer’s plant, they don’t question the seed’s innate ability to grow and produce crops. Neither do they dig seeds up every day to verify their progress. They simply prepare the soil as best they can and trust nature to handle the rest.
Similarly, chiropractors don’t question your innate ability to heal and function when we remove a subluxation. We know each human body is blessed with an internal intelligence, an auto pilot, capable enough to coordinate and carry out all the steps required to build and repair. By adjusting, we’re simply maintaining and environment conducive for that healing process to occur (clear nerve system), and trusting the innate wisdom in you to run the show.
The only one capable of healing you is the doctor inside you. The best physicians in the world recognize and yield to this awesome power within every person. The best we can do is prep the soil and get out of your innate intelligence’s way.
