In the month of November, we are talking about what little pressure it takes to drain normal nerve transmission to a minimum in "Good Health On A Dime". Along with Dr. Shoe using a safety pin to explain how the nervous system sends messages to the brain and what happens when it's interrupted in "The Safety Pin and Subluxations". Below is information and videos from Dr. Shoe and Dr. Alex to teach you the importance of proper spinal alignments.
Good Health On A Dime
The weight of a dime, 8 - 10 mm of hg. That’s all it takes to drain normal nerve transmission to a trickle.
If these impulses are communicating vital instructions like “how your immune system responds to pre-cancerous lesions” or “how many times your heart needs to beat”.
You want those messages traveling at the highest possible speeds with NO interference from a subluxation.
That’s why it’s important to keep your spine in proper alignment with chiropractic care. So, your good health doesn’t stop on a dime!
The Safety Pin and Subluxations
One of the simplest ways to understand Chiropractic is to look at a safety pin.
The large end represents your brain and the smaller end represents a body part (ie. your stomach or lungs).
One thin piece of metal represents the messages going from the brain. The other thin piece of metal represents the message from your body back to the brain. We all know that the brain communicates to every part of the body. As long as that message gets through freely that body part will work.
There's a problem with safety pins!
Even though the safety pins can hold a lot, they occasionally open up. When that happens, someone eventually gets stuck!
Your nervous system works a lot like that safety pin. As long as the connection is intact, the brain controls and coordinates every function in the body. Unfortunately, like that safety pin that message can be broken or interrupted.
In our bodies loss of that full connection can be devastating.
This loss of full connection is called a subluxation and can be caused by many everyday events. Some of the more obvious causes of subluxation are car accidents, slip and falls, lifting to heavy. Many other causes of subluxation are not so obvious, like stress, poor posture, sitting for long periods of time, and of course the birth process itself.
Safety pins are great when they work!
The payoff is obvious when the open safety pin its fixed… there are no sharpen points to stick you, the safe pin is strong, and it holds things together. The pay off in your body is also obvious. When a connection and communication from the brain to every part of your body is reestablished, there are no sick body parts to stick you, the body is strong, and it holds your life together.
