One of my favorite people ever was my “Uncle Jim”. He could tell you that your house was on fire and make you laugh at the same time. One of his favorite jokes was something about how a thermos keeps its contents either hot or cold and the punch line was but “how do it know”!
That line sticks in my head and comes up in many different situations, such as how does your body know when and how to raise or lower its blood pressure, body temperature, cortisol level, blood glucose level, adrenal levels, etc.
These are great questions but they are largely ignored by western medicines men and women who prescribe drugs. These drugs decide for you how much and which chemicals are going to be in your system. These drugs were never intended to even be on earth in the first place, let alone in the delicate 60,000 chemical complex soup inside of your body. There is an innate intelligence beyond all of our “doctors” finite wisdom that does all of this “knowing” for us. Chiropractors recognize the innate wisdom of your bodies’ ability to do this on its own. We work WITH that wisdom, not against it, and strive to allow the easiest pathway for this to occur. We remove the interference that causes the dysfunction in the first place. This can allow a natural balance, ebb and flow, of chemical balance as only your body knows how.
