A Revealing Medical Study You Never Heard About, UNTIL NOW!
This is one of the main reasons why I use chiropractic care on a regular basis, and will continue to do so for the rest of my life!
Henry Winsor, MD and His Findings:
He performed roughly 75 autopsies and this is what he found…
STOMACH DISEASE: Nine cases of stomach disease all had spinal misalignments in the mid thoracic spine, an area between the shoulder blades.
LUNG DISEASE: Twenty-six cases of lung disease had spinal misalignments in the upper dorsal region, an area slightly below the neck.
LIVER DISEASE: Thirteen cases of liver disease were associated with misalignments in the lower mid-dorsal region.
GALLSTONES: Five cases of gallstone disease associated with related spinal misalignments.
PANCREAS DISEASE: Three cases of pancreas disease associated with related spinal misalignments.
SPLEEN DISEASE: Eleven cases of spleen disease associated with spinal misalignments
KIDNEY DISEASE: Seventeen cases of kidney disease had the lower dorsal (thoracic) 10th, 11th, 12th, vertebrae out of alignment.
PROSTATE & BLADDER DISEASE: Eight cases of prostate and bladder disease had the lower back vertebrae misaligned (specifically the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd lumbar vertebrae.)
UTERUS: Two cases of uterus conditions had the second lumbar misaligned.
THYMUS: Two cases of thymus disease had lower neck and upper back misalignments.
The Conclusion Here?
Dr. Winsor was not alone in his findings. Similar studies by other researchers over the next few decades would confirm his initial conclusions… a well cared for spine (and nervous system) is essential to maintaining health and preventing dis-ease.
It’s not really about the bones in our back. It is about what is inside of them… our central nervous system. We MUST proactively take care of the thing that runs and regulates our body – or else!
Dr. Winsor’s results were published in the respected medical journal, The Medical Times, and can be found in any medical library.
Think About It This Way…
Our body runs on electricity. Billions of electrical signals are constantly flowing from the brain to organs, glands and cells. The 2 main components of this electrical system are the brain and spinal cord. This electrical system forms what is known as our Brain-Body Communication System.
This Brain-Body Communication System is delicate, complex and undoubtedly the most important system in our entire body. For this reason, it is primarily encased in bone, i.e. our skull and spine.
Everyone knows how life changing an injury or even mild damage to the skull can be. The same is true for the spine. Not only can an unhealthy or damaged spine cause pain, but it can ALSO produce nerve dysfunction.
The scary part is this…
Nerve dysfunction from a neglected, unhealthy spine CAN & OFTEN will exist without pain or symptoms.
An ugly, but accurate analogy for this phenomenon is CANCER. Cancer typically exits for months or years before symptoms begin to surface.
The same goes for cardiovascular disease.
What Does This All Really Mean?
To live a long, active and healthy life our Brain-Body Communication System MUST be operating properly & optimally.
There are many factors that can influence this, but one thing is for sure…
Symptoms or no symptoms… We MUST be certain that our spine is NOT producing dysfunction to the very thing it is designed to protect (our central nervous system).
So, Let’s Ask Ourselves This…
How do we know if our spine & nervous system are healthy and problem free ?
Remember… we can’t use symptoms to determine this. And, our family physician is NOT adequately trained to advise us on this matter.
Truth is, most won’t know until it’s too late.
This is WHY we MUST proactively seek the advice and counsel of a good wellness-based Doctor of Chiropractic.
Benefits if we do.
Consequences if we do not.
A Piece Of Advice…
We need to get ourselves and the people we care about (kids too) involved with a great wellness-based Doctor of Chiropractic.
They can teach us things, and do things for us, that nobody else can!
Doc’s Final Comments:
I started using chiropractic like most people. I had aches and pains, as well as an impaired nerve and immune system.
Chiropractic care helped me tremendously!
Fast forward 20+ years later…
I now proactively use chiropractic care for 2 reasons:
- To prevent dysfunction, injury and abnormal aging
- To optimize Brain-Body Communication, and ALL THINGS related to that system
For these simple, logical reasons (including those found in the Winsor Autopsy studies)… I get chiropractic care at least 2-4 times per month – regardless of how I FEEL.
Perhaps we ALL should do the same?
