How Does The Body Heal Itself?

Last week we talked about getting and staying healthy with Chiropractic care throughout your life and how you can reduce your medical costs, pharmaceutical usage, hospital stays, and surgeries. Check out that article here.

This week, let’s talk about what “Health” really means.

It’s right there in the word, heal. Healing is the regular and normal production and growth of new cells all over the body. This is a continual process that happens from conception (when your parents made you 😉) until death; it is programmed by our DNA to continually heal.

We are constantly healing and growing new tissues; even our bones completely replace themselves every seven years. Wow!

All that is needed is a proper nerve supply from the brain to the body, dietary nutrients, movement, and the proper environment. Or, as Dr. James Chestnut put it, “Eat well, Move well, Think well.” These things need to happen simultaneously for a period of time to achieve and maintain health. 

Sounds simple right? Then why are so many people suffering from poor health and disease?

Usually, they miss at least one of these categories, and their cells cannot keep up with the continual breakdown. For example, they don’t have a proper nerve connection (they have a Neuro-Structural Shift) or proper nutrients to make healthy tissue. So the body tries to do the best that it can with what it has.

If you want to get healthy, you need to focus on the areas you’re missing and maximize them for a period of time to allow your body to grow new cells, tissues, and organs. 

This is why at Platinum Chiropractic, our approach is to first create a connection from the brain to the body by reducing nerve interference.

  • The specific adjustments are designed to release pressure off of nerves and restore proper movement and nutrients to the brain and joints.
  • The specific supplementation we recommend is to support nerve and tissue regeneration.
  • Our practice environment is one of healing and happiness, so your brain and body can get out of fight and flight physiology and into rest and relaxation, where we heal.

Our mission is to help as many people experience true health as possible. Just imagine every member of your family, friends, and community full of vibrant and healthy people! People who can play with their kids or grandkids, people without heartburn and indigestion, people who rarely get a cold or flu and recover quickly when they do. Remember, it’s not just about back pain or neck pain.
