The superhighway, as it was coined in the 1990’s, was developed to bring our global communications and information to one great stream accessible by all of us. The information is translated and driven by numerous languages and mathematical algorithms but one system that is universally is the same is that to access and connect to this expanse of information, you first need a few things, namely – a computer and an internet service provider. Then of course your computer needs to be turned ON and you have to be connected to the internet.
This is a great metaphor for how our bodies function. The major premise of chiropractic is that there is a Universal Intelligence that gives to all matter its properties and actions, thereby maintaining it in existence. In other words there is order to the planet and an unlimited potential of intelligence – similar to the World Wide Web.
Put simply, unless you are connected to this Universal Intelligence (or the www.), then you are missing out on an unlimited potential of intelligence. In vertebrates, which yes – humans are included, this intelligence flows from our computer (our brains) down through the spinal cord to all the cells, tissues and organs of the body.
How Many Bars is Your Connectivity?
Interference in the connection from your brain to your body can occur from misalignments in the spine. The misalignments often result from physical, chemical and emotional stress placed on our body through things like car accidents, the birth process, sporting slips and falls, poor sitting, sleeping and standing posture, toxins in our food and environment and stress from work, relationships and finances.
Ultimately the connection speed of nerve signals flowing through the body should be 261 mph, but in a compromised or non-maintained working order, this transmission can be slowed as much as 60%. This is like going from high-speed wireless to the old dial up where you wait for what seems like an eternity for each page to load. Some people feel like this in their bodies where despite how much sleep they get, they still feel tired, or their digestion is sluggish, immune system is depressed, hormones are not balanced or instead of being mentally alert they feel ‘cloudy’.
Other Mechanics Effected
The health of your spine is affected by the stability and health of your extremities—the parts of your body that are not your back and neck. These areas can be directly related by not only injuries, repetitive incorrect wear and tear, but a weakened communication cycle from your body’s server.
These areas are most often effected
- Hands and fingers
- Feet and toes
If there is an incorrect connection people will most often feel a tingling sensation, numbness, or instability and/or weakness in those areas.
