Chiropractic is known by the public as the best approach for relief of mechanical back pain. Research has shown this to be true and I see it daily in clinical practice here in Tahoe City. It’s a nice fit in a town of active, healthy people who just want to feel better and do the things that they love to do.
But the founders of chiropractic had a different idea. Their “big idea” is not mutually exclusive to the notion of back pain relief, it’s actually part of the reason that people feel better under the care of a well trained, caring chiropractor. Originally chiropractic was founded as a natural approach to health. The 33 Principles of Chiropractic describe this approach to health and No. 5, The Perfection of the Triune states, “In order to have 100% Life, there must be 100% Intelligence, 100% Force and 100% Matter.
The Triune of Health tells us that Intelligence, Force and Matter constitute life so it’s important to consider that a decrease in any of the three components leads to a decrease in the full expression of life.
Intelligence is broken down into Universal Intelligence, Educated Intelligence and Innate Intelligence. Universal Intelligence organizes the world that you see. Educated Intelligence is the sum of the things that you learn. Innate Intelligence is that intelligence inside of you that coordinates the function of your body and helps you to make decisions that support an optimum state of health. Innate Intelligence is that little voice inside of you that says, “Eat fresh fruit and vegetables.” Educated Intelligence tells you, “That doughnut looks good.” More importantly, Innate Intelligence rebuilds the body with perfection. Innate Intelligence travels through your nervous system and a disturbance in the function of the spine disturbs your ability to express 100% of Innate Intelligence. This leads to a decrease in the ability of your body to express 100% life.
The early philosophers of chiropractic talked about “Force.” Force in chiropractic is energy. It’s the capacity to do work and it is a potential energy that exists in the body. In order to be 100% healthy you must have 100% Force. Any decrease in Force or energy, leads to a decreased expression of life. You are born with 100% Force and your body has the innate potential to express force. The energy associated with your expression of Force is related to how well your nervous system is working. So once again when your spine is injured, your nerves are affected and your vital energy can’t express at 100%. This leads to decreased life expression.
Matter is anything that occupies space and in chiropractic we work with the matter that is your body. Do everything that you can to keep your body whole and complete. Exercise appropriately and when you break it down, build it up. Eat whole foods that support regeneration of the body and when you injure yourself use techniques to rebuild it as best possible. In our office we place an emphasis on natural techniques to support regeneration of injured tissues because when your body doesn’t regenerate you are left with less than 100% matter. Keep your body well in order to have 100% of your genetic potential and 100% life.
As a chiropractor I help you sustain 100% life by helping you with the perfection of the Triune. A spinal adjustment does in fact decrease pain and while you are grateful for the relief, keep in mind that 100% expression of your life potential is a valuable part of the chiropractic experience.
