Exernal Invasive Forces-Q&A # 48


When the innate intelligence of the body is faced with external invasive forces (EIFs), whether in the form of toxins, poisons, bacteria and viruses, or any other aspect of the environment, it will endeavor to do what is necessary to adapt the organism to those EIFs. Most of the time it will succeed even if subluxated. Often in adapting, the body will manifest certain signs and symptoms which can either be ignored or treated therapeutically even thought they are normal manifestations of successful adaptation. Sometimes the innate intelligence will be unable to successfully adapt due to vertebral subluxation and a chiropractic adjustment (or any other EIF that the innate intelligence can use to correct the vertebral subluxation and remove the nerve interference) will enable the innate intelligence to succeed. Sometimes the EIF is so great that even if the vertebral subluxation is corrected, the innate intelligence, due to limitations of matter, cannot succeed. In which of the above scenarios is it necessary for the chiropractor  to do anything more than LACVS?

    None of the above. Once a chiropracTOR has LAFTCOVS there is nothing more to do, ever.

    Unfortunately we have no way of knowing which of the above scenarios is actually playing out. It’s bad enough that WE HAVE TO make a decision for ourselves, our children and even our pets when these situations arise, and live with the consequences of those decisons, right or wrong. As chiropractors, it is our responsibility to deal with what is right within each and every person we work with, not with what is wrong. What is right is the life that is within them. It’s our job to help “turn loose” that life and leave it alone. Anything more than that is pure guesswork, to which we leave to the folks who get paid the buck bucks to do so.

      Tom, you don’t often jump into these discussions but when you do it always right on. Thanks.

    So, trick or treat? Was it a trick question or a philosophical treat?
