Auto-Immune diseases... Real help, by Corte Madera chiropractor Dr. Harte

Multiple sclerosis... lupus... Hashimoto's... scleroderma... rheumatoid arthritis... psoriasis... ulcerative colitis... Type I diabetes...

What do these diseases have in common? They are all auto-immune, which means that the body is attacking its own tissue, as if it were foreign tissue. How could the body go so haywire? Well, the immune system, like every other system in the body, is controlled by the brain and the nervous system. That control can be seriously interfered with by the presence of Vertebral Subluxation Complex (VSC)*, causing the received signals to the immune system to be either too little or too much. Either can cause dysfunction, leading to dis-ease, leading to actual and serious disease.

While people think that most disease is from lack, in actuality, most subluxation creates too much stimulation, leading to hyperactivity, such an auto-immune diseases.

What does Medicine offer for these maladies? Well, they tell you right off that there is no cure, and that they can only manage symptoms. One is depressing, and the other is downright dangerous. Besides the lesser drugs used for treating the lesser symptoms, the main drugs are either corticosteroids, which are extreme anti-inflammatories, or drugs like Humira or Enbrel which are designed to attack the immune system, or cancer chemotherapy agents. Look up the side effects of these drugs. Go ahead! The crazy thing is that they work to suppress the immune system, which can and does end up at the other end of immune system problems... CANCER. This is just plain nuts! (No, because your doctor said it's OK does not make it OK.)

What approach would make sense? How about, instead of fighting disease, you pursue health?

Chiropractic does not treat any diseases, including auto-immune diseases. We do correct interference to the nervous system, allowing the immune system to begin to function more normally. Does this sound infinitely safer? Saner? More workable? What do you think?

Many people who are very sick get defensive about their diagnosis and their specialists. This is understandable, for it is difficult to cope with the suffering that they are experiencing, and the hopelessness imparted to them by so-called "medical science." It is time to calm down and think rationally. The only real healing comes from within. Scientific, specific, gentle chiropractic adjustments allow that to happen.
