“Any living cell carries with it the experience of a billion years of experimentation by its ancestors.”
- Max Delbruck
The answer to this question is simple, but it may take a bit of effort for that answer to penetrate how you really think and feel.
Chiropractors are smarter than medical doctors. Why? Because they know and appreciate what they don’t know. In the semi-mythical words of Clint Eastwood in the San Francisco cop movie, “Magnum Force,” “A man’s got to know his limitations.”
In Medicine, in medical thinking, both in and out of the profession, there are no limits. For every incurable disease (which is virtually all of them except those that are self-limiting), there is the holy “search for the cure.” They ask for billions to find what they are looking for in a few years, what they promised to find years ago. There are "breakthroughs," where they feel like they are really getting a handle on some disease process, and what to do about it. But it never really is a breakthrough. It is quite true, what I was taught in chiropractic college: "The wonder drug of today will be the blunder drug of tomorrow." And they continue to stumble from one fad to another. They marvel at their own mastery of nature, and ask you to do the same.
Chiropractors marvel at the wonder of Nature, of Life. We understand that we can never understand everything about these very complex processes. And we certainly understand that we cannot direct them to our whims. There is an Innate Intelligence that directs Life, from conception to death. Any interference with the expression of that Innate Intelligence takes away from the expression of Life. This creates dis-ease, which eventually leads to disease. We chiropractors know what we don't know. We correct interference, and get out of the way.
“We chiropractors work with the subtle substance of the soul. We release the imprisoned impulse, the tiny rivulets of force, that eminates from the mind and flows over the nerves to cells and stirs them into life. We deal with the majestic power that transforms common food into living, loving, thinking clay; that robes the earth with beauty and hues and scents the flowers with the glory of the air.
In the dim, dark, distant long-ago, when the sun first bowed to the morning star, this power spoke that there was life; it quickened the slime of the seas and the dust of the earth and drove the cell to union with its fellows and countless living forms. Through eons of time, it finned the fish and winged the bird and fanged the beast. Endlessly, it worked, evolving its form until it produced the crowning glory of them all. With tireless energy, it blows the bubble of each individual life, and then, silently, relentlessly dissolves the form and absorbs the spirit into itself again.
And yet, you ask, ‘Can chiropractors cure appendicitis or the flu?’ Have you more faith in a spoonful of medicine than in the power that animates the living world."
