The principle of Network Chiropractic Care and Reorganizational Healing can be simply expressed by this quote from Zen teacher Shunryu Suzuki Roshi:
“All of you are perfect just as you are and you could use a little improvement.”
The essence of this from a healing perspective is that there is a perfection innate within you: the perfect doctor, the perfect teacher, the perfect guide, the perfect something. In chiropractic, that’s called your “Innate Intelligence”, the organizing function that expresses via your nervous system through the spine to help you and your body be adaptable, dynamic, and responsible (able to respond) to an ever changing environment.
The “perfection” is that this Innate Intelligence is especially “smart” at adapting to three kinds of forces: physical, emotional/mental, and chemical:
- Physical forces includes cuts, bruises, sitting, slouching, poor posture while driving and exercising, playing sports, falls, lack of sleep, and accidents.
- Emotional/mental forces includes relationship stress, time and deadline stress, job stress, family stress, dealing with trolls on social media, and more.
- Chemical forces includes air pollution, treatment chemicals in the water, poor nutrition, medication, recreational drugs, and environmental toxins.
When your nervous system adapts to these forces properly, health occurs. Health is an inside job, a reflection that our body is adapting to life well.
When your nervous system can’t adapt to these forces properly, breakdown and a lack of health occurs. This is the “needs improvement” category. See…
Sometimes our nervous system can’t adapt to it all.
Life happens, it’s more than we can bear, and our nerve system and spine get overwhelmed. A lack of health is a sign that our nervous system cannot fully adapt to what is occurring – there is a gap between our current level of function and what is required to handle what is on our plate. There’s interference to our perfection, it doesn’t fully express, things break down.
Vitalistic chiropractic removes the interference to your perfection (the adaptability of your nervous system, or your Innate Intelligence) so that it can fully express: self-regulation, self-healing, self-referential, vital and energized from the inside out.
Network Spinal Analysis and Reorganizational Healing (the chiropractic approach we use in our office) applies this principle and then takes it farther. We remove the interference to your body’s adaptability by helping your Innate Intelligence get smarter to resolve it from the inside and better adapt the next time.
We do so by upgrading how your spine and nerve system adapt to physical, emotional-mental, and chemical forces. It gives “a little improvement” to your perfection, so you can express your Innate Intelligence more fully when life happens. By having a more adaptable spine and nerve system, you can heal what you previously couldn’t and also grow healthier during new stress, rather than getting “stuck” because of it.
This helps you close the gap between where you are now and the level of health you were born to have for the life you are called to live.
As we said, you’re perfect exactly as you are AND you could use a little improvement. We are honored that you choose us to help you make those improvements.
