Goldilocks as Physiologist, Recognized by Corte Madera Chiropractor Dr Harte

"Goldilocks understood it. Not too much, not too little, but just right."  - Dean Black, Ph.D.

Every parent has read "Goldilocks and the Three Bears" to their kids. Those who aren't parents, reach back into your memory as a young child.

You'll remember that the first bowl of porridge was too hot. The next one was too cold. The next one was just right. When Goldilocks thought it was time to have a nap, the first bed was too hard, the second was too soft, and the third was just right.

Physiology... the study of the body's functions. People tend to think of problems... disease... in terms to lack... too little. Well, sometimes that's true. A low functioning thyroid will leave you weak, slow and prone to gaining weight. But, then, a high functioning thyroid will cause you to be anxious, unable to sleep, to think, etc. Either hypo (too low) or hyper (too high) functioning is a pathological state. Who knows what is the right level for your thyroid... your doctor, the lab?

What about blood sugar? Too low is a problem. So is too high. The same is true of blood pressure, or just about any bodily function that you could name. So what you need, for the many, many functions of your body, is "just right." Now "just right' is different from person to person. "Just right" is even different for you, from day to day, and sometimes from moment to moment.

So... who knows what is "just right?" The Doctor, the specialist, the lab? No. They think they know. They do not, they cannot know, for the reasons given above. Your Innate Intelligence knows. It is charged with working the body, powering the body, coordinating the body, in a "just right" fashion. If you have  Vertebral Subluxation Complex (VSC), the full expression of your Innate Intelligence will be interfered with, so that you may have functions that are "too hot" or "too cold."

The medical approach? Every drug hyper's the hypo and hypo's the hyper. Blood pressure too high? There are drugs to force it down to "lab normals." Too low? There are drugs for that, too. Thyroid too low? They give you fake thyroid hormones to bring your levels up to "lab normal." Too high? They'll cut your thyroid out.

The chiropractic approach? I adjust to correct VSC, allowing normal function... not too much, not too little, but just right.

Which approach is safer? Which makes more sense?
