The Cells Tell

Health Tip of the Week: Your body is constantly remaking and rebuilding itself. Every minute of every day, old cells are dying off and new ones are being created. In theory, our body never gets older, some cells are minutes old and the longest living cells are only one year old. So, the big question of the day is, why do we age? Or more importantly, why do we develop disease? My cancer and disease theory is in two parts. The first part has to do with chemical toxins. The things that we put into our body that don't really belong there, cause cells to mutate and prosper as abnormal tissue, leading to disease. What kind of things am I talking about? Chemicals and preservatives in foods, environmental hazards, over-the counter drugs and medications, nicotine, too much alcohol and caffeine. The other part has to do with brain to body communication. The brain directs the body to create normal cells. If that communication is interfered with, the body will interpret the message incorrectly and create abnormal cells leading to disease. Interference in brain to body communication comes from a disruption in nerve flow from the spinal cord and spinal nerve roots. To make your cells stay as young and healthy as possible, eat right, eliminate or limit toxins and have your spine checked for nerve interference.

Thought For The Week: "The beauty of chiropractic is the fact that it works with natural means. It puts nothing new into the body, nor does it take away any natural organ or gland. Chiropractic simply releases life forces within the body, sets free rivulets of energy over nerves, and lets nature do her work in a normal manner." - BJ Palmer, Developer of Chiropractic
