A living person has a brain.
A dead body also has a brain, but it doesn’t have any activity. This is because the brain is not active.
Our body is controlled through the brain and nervous system, all moments of our lives, day and night.
The most important thing to remember is that Innate Intelligence, which is the law of nature inherent in our body.
Innate (Inborn) Intelligence is the name we give to the source of the forces that act through the medium of our brain, and it is invisible to the eye. Therefore, it is also called wisdom of immanence.
The power of nature (natural healing power) emanates from our brain, which in turn emanates from the wisdom of the universe, the source of all existence in the universe. The wisdom of the universe is the source of the laws of nature.
Chiropractic philosophy teaches that
No.1 Major Premise
Universal Intelligence is in all matter and continually gives to it all its properties and actions, thus maintaining it in existence.
Stephenson, Chiropractic Text Book, Vol. XIV. Art 24 A List of Thirty-Three Principles, numbered and named, p.31-33
The power of nature uses the brain and work through the nervous system.
Chiropractic philosophy teaches us about this point as follows:
No.28 The Conductors of Innate Forces.
The forces of Innate Intelligence operate through or over the nervous system in animal bodies.
So chiropractic teaches clearly that natural healing power within us works through the nervous system. Medicine often refers to natural healing power but it doesn’t say how it works. As a result, medicine cares about the condition of the cells, names the resulting condition, and treats the result.
The state of the cells in the body depends on the normal supply of nerve energy from the brain. Therefore, chiropractic describes the cause of why those of condition exist.
Medical care is always about explaining the result, while chiropractic care is always about explaining the cause. Therefore, medical treatment or medical profession is absolutely opposition to chiropractic.
In the spine, there is a nerve system called the spinal cord. The spinal cord is composed of sympathetic and parasympathetic nerves called the autonomic nerves, and then motor and sensory nerves.
The autonomic nervous system controls your body as a living, unconscious person. The function of the heart and stomach are good examples of its nerve action.
Whether you know it or not, or don’ want to know, it is a fact that your body is controlled by your brain.
Dr. B.J. Palmer, founder of upper cervical chiropractic states, “The laws of life works even though the educated man knows nothing of that law.
Chiropractic Philosophy, Science and Art Vol.32 1955 B. J. Palmer Chapter 37, p.111
Therefore, Innate Intelligence, also called inborn wisdom, which is an inherent of your brain knows the body completely and knows it its needs, knows what to do or not to do, naturally. It can do this without thinking or any education.
Treating diseases and relieving symptoms are medical procedures that are performed by people including you, doctors, and various therapists using their knowledge of the human body. So the important thing for you to realize is who knows your body best or completely? The answer is your brain. This is because your body is controlled by your brain. Your body is not controlled by others.
We know that even doctors who know a great deal about disease and the body can get sick, undergo surgery, or even die.
We know of chiropractors who have a lot of knowledge about the spine and nerves, yet have poor posture.
Why does this happen? Because no one knows the body completely.
B.J.Palmer comments about our knowledge of anatomy in his book ”As A Man Thinketh”.,P.36.
“All that is known of anatomy is so, but all that is so of anatomy is not known.”
Therefore, we are only talking about the things what we know.
Chiropractic lets your brain (Innate Intelligence) diagnose you and heal you.
In order for this to happen, there must be no interfere with nerve transmission from the brain.
D.D. Palmer, the founder of chiropractic, mentions that
“Chiropractors do not treat, cure, or diagnose disease. As a science it is unlike any other system, it will not mix any other. Chiropractors do not do treat, cure or heal affects named disease in the sense that a physician or an osteopath does.”
D.D. Palmer The Chiropractors Adjuster,1910 p.790
