What makes these essential is that if any of them were to stop, you would die. If any of them were interfered with, your health would not be at its optimum potential.
Nerve ImpulseNerve impulse is the most commonly overlooked essential for life and health. Nerve impulse is an electrochemical charge transmitted by the brain through the nervous system to the body. It is the life force that keeps us alive and "charged". All body function is dependant on this life force or brain impulse. Cells must be electrically charged in order to vibrate and function. If your brain stopped (generating these electrical impulses) you would die. In fact in order to be legally dead, brain impulses must stop. If you severed the nerve to your heart, would it stop? How about you stomach, lungs, or hand? What if you just interfere with the normal nerve transmission? Would these organs and tissue function at their optimum potential?
One of the major causes for such nerve interference is misalignment of the spine, commonly termed by chiropractors as a subluxation. Subluxations can interfere with the nerve, the spinal cord and reflex nerve pathways resulting in abnormal functions and a lower health potential. If your spine is subluxated you cannot be at your optimum health potential regardless of how good your food, water, and oxygen is, because you are still interfering with one of the essentials of life and health.
The chiropractor's primary role is to locate and correct subluxations, thus removing nerve interference and allowing the body to restore the normal function. It is not a treatment for symptoms or a cure for disease, but merely a way of improving the body's optimum health potential, through proper nerve integrity. This is why everyone should see a chiropractor from the time they are born, and regularly throughout their lifetime. Maintenance of a healthy spine means optimum nerve integrity and optimum health potential.
So remember, to achieve and maintain optimum health potential maintain the most optimum quality of the four essentials of life and health- food, water, oxygen and nerve impulse. But pay special attention to the most neglected one- nerve impulse- by having your spine checked for subluxations by a chiropractor. It would be the answer you have been searching for.
