You would think a chiropractor was responsible for these words, however, they were actually penned by an instructor and practitioner at Harvard medical school in the late 1800′s. This belief is dismissed today by the medical and pharmaceutical community, but it remains the core foundation of the practice of chiropractic.
People want health that doesn’t involve going under the knife or that comes from a bottle. Chiropractors realize that “the ONLY thing that can heal the body is the Power that created it.” This wisdom Dr. Cabot refers to in his quote, we as chiropractors call Innate Intelligence. It is the Power of Life that animates our cells, tissues and organs. It is the coordinating force that maintains our body’s intricate chemical balance. It silently and confidently orchestrates all steps involved in the healing process from mending a broken bone to putting cancer in remission. Simply put, it is the energy that makes you alive one minute and not alive the next. When unhindered, Innate Intelligence can direct healing to every part of your body, and it can also effectively direct replication, reproduction, adaptation, and survival. It is in favor of you living, rather than you dying.
It is our responsibility, as chiropractors, to let you know about this great intelligence inside you. The actions of a chiropractor aren’t responsible for getting you better from the weak state, chronic illness, incapacitating pain or depressing condition, we simply create an environment for those things to occur. If you want to know who is responsible for the true healing process, just take a look in the mirror. It was the best doctor on the planet, the one staring right back at you, that did ALL the work, the incredible doctor YOU!
