An Eternal Spring
Winter, spring, summer, fall, winter, spring, summer, fall, winter—those are the seasons and the cycles of life. Birth, growth, decay and death, these are the seasons of our lives. Yet our macrocosm is a reflection of our microcosm because every organ, tissue and cell has its own cycle of life. Throughout our lives, there is constant birth, growth, decay, death and rebirth. Your body is alive but not static, it must replace its parts all the time.
Every cell in your body is replaced at least once every 7-8 years. But some are replaced at an astounding rate. For example, your body replaces about 4 million red blood cells every day, your stomach cells are replaced every 2-4 days. You have a new skin every 10-30 days, a new cervix every 6 days, new taste buds every 10 days. There are just a few parts of your body where the cells are not replaced: you don’t replace lens cells or oocytes in the ovaries—they are for life.
The key to healing is to replace sick or damaged cells with healthy cells. How do we do that? Chiropractic care is a very powerful healing art that helps to keep your body properly balanced, without obstructions to your nerves and brain, so life energy and information may flow to all your parts and you become healthier day by day. Regular chiropractic care ensures that your body is free from life-damaging spine and nerve stress.
