Germs As Seeds

How come some people go from one cold to the next, getting all the bugs that “go around” and others don’t? It was this very question that prompted D. D. Palmer back in 1895 to pursue what we call chiropractic!

We meet a lot of people who are fearful of germs. Since about the time the microscope was invented, there has been an undue focus on germs. But germs are a lot like seeds. Ever try to start a lawn or plant a garden? It doesn’t just happen. The conditions have to be just right over the period of days and weeks. Same with germs manifesting into disease.

A common factor is a depressed immune system.

Like all tissues, organs and systems of your body, your nervous system affects the function of your immune system. That’s why it’s thought that subluxations can dampen your immune system response. Weakened by a compromised nervous system, your stomach, lungs, nose, ears and throat become the perfect “soil” for viruses, microbes and other bugs.

Restoring the integrity of the nervous system (and the workings of every cell and tissue) is how chiropractic care works. It’s a simple idea that helps our patients enjoy better health, naturally.

Your Chiropractor Asks some important questions of interest to Dubai residents - Chiropractor Dubai Your Chiropractor Asks...

What controls every cell, tissue and organ of your body?
DNA? Wrong. Immune system? Wrong? Hormones? Wrong. It's your nervous system, consisting of your brain, spinal cord and all the nerves of your body. When a chiropractor sees a Dubai patient with say, stomach problems, we want to know why the brain is unable to properly control and regulate the stomach. Which prompts us to examine the nervous system—the focus of chiropractic care.
What's the difference between chiropractic and medicine?
Medical treatment focuses on the disease or the symptom. Chiropractic focuses on the person with the disease or the symptom. Medical treatment usually involves changing blood chemistry. Chiropractic involves restoring nervous system integrity. Medical doctors prescribe medicine. Chiropractors adjust the spine—a common source of nervous system interference.
