The famous scientist Emmanuel Cheraskin, M.D., D.M.D. once said, “People are always blaming genes. They’ll say ‘Of course I’m fat, it’s because of my genes. My kids are fat because of their genes. My wife is fat because of her genes. My dog is fat because of his genes.’ They ignore that they are all eating like pigs.” (1)
Blaming our genes is unscientific – newer scientific research reveals that by changing how we eat, drink, think and live we can in fact change our genetic expression for the better, or for the worse. We have much more power than we realize.
Dawson Church, Ph.D., author of The Genie in your Genes, puts it this way:
The old view that our genes contain indelible instructions governing the functioning of our bodies is, in the scornful words of my offspring, “So twentieth century.” We now know that a host of other factors determine which genes are expressed. Some of these are physical like diet, exercise, and lifestyle. Others are metaphysical, like beliefs, attitudes, spirituality, and thoughts. (2)
It’s true. If you change your lifestyle you change your future – you are not a slave to destiny. You are not destined to get cancer, stroke, heart disease, mental illness – you were born to live a long, happy, healthy, fulfilling life.
What does this have to do with chiropractic? Actually, quite a lot. Regular chiropractic care is one of the best things you can do to improve your genetic expression because removing blockages or interferences to your nervous system permits your inner wisdom to function at higher efficiency. Your energies can flow to your every nook and cranny and you’ll be more healthy and whole.
Remember, your brain and nerves control, coordinate and enhance your health and well-being, and chiropractors locate and release interference or blockages to your nervous system called subluxations. When subluxations or blockages are released your body and mind work closer to their potential and you live closer to your natural healing potential.
Do you know anyone with a spine? If they have a spine then they need to get it checked for subluxations and that includes everyone – from infants to the elderly.
Chiropractic has become the most popular natural health care system in the world because it works. It has proven itself for over a hundred years and it proves itself every day on countless people of all ages and with all kinds of health problems.
Why should your friends and relatives live with subluxations in their bodies when they can get a chiropractic checkup and live without them?
Please share chiropractic with everyone.
