“The wisdom of the body is responsible for 90% of the hopes of patients to recover. The body has a super wisdom that is in favor of life, rather than death. This is the power that we depend on for life. All doctors are responsible for letting their patients know of this great force working within them.

At first glance you’d think a Chiropractor was responsible for these words. But they were actually written by a Harvard medical school instructor in the late 1800’s. While this belief is trivialized by the medical and pharmaceutical community today, it remains the core foundation of the practice of Chiropractic.
Chiropractors humbly acknowledge that “the ONLY thing that can heal the body is the Power that created it.” The wisdom Dr. Cabot refers to in his quote is called Innate Intelligence by Chiropractors. It is the genius of Life that animates our cells, tissues and organs. It is the coordinating force that maintains our body’s intricate chemical balance. It silently and knowingly orchestrates all steps involved in the healing process. It is in favor of you living, rather than you dying.
The most important job of a Chiropractor is to teach you about this great force and keep you connected to it. If you want to meet the REAL doctor responsible for healing you, take a look in the mirror. It’s the one staring right back at you. You have all the tools inside to function at your best, and unleash the power of your Innate Intelligence. You have inside of you the World’s Greatest Drug Store, capable of administering the correct amount of hormones, minerals, vitamins, antibodies, to the places within YOU that need it at the right time!
What could upset this apple cart? How about interference in your Nervous System function, called subluxations? Just as decay stops the ability of your tooth to function properly, subluxations prevents your Nervous System from functioning at its best level possible. Subluxations, like the dam in the river, caused by an inability to adapt to accumulated physical, emotional, and chemical stresses in your life, if not corrected, will cause the Wisdom of your Body to be less wise.
Many patients think that they receive Chiropractic care in order to “feel good.” The truth is, that once your Innate Intelligence can function at its optimal level without the interference of spinal subluxations, your CAN feel better. Unleash the power of the Wisdom of your Body, and send your body towards LIFE!
