The Body Heals Itself

3

We know that under chiropractic care alone many people do get well from medical conditions. Actually, under no care of any type people do get well of medical conditions. It is for the same reason, that is, the body often has the inborn ability to heal itself. It is also true that under chiropractic care a significant percentage of people do not get well of a medical condition. No one, medical doctor or chiropractor can determine that fact for any individual patient.

    That you say “It is also true that under chiropractic care a significant percentage of people do not get well of a medical condition. No one, medical doctor or chiropractor can determine that fact for any individual patient.”
    Since we’re not comparing shouldn’t the statement be:
    “It is also true that under chiropractic care or Medical care a significant percentage of people do not get well of a medical condition. No one, medical doctor or chiropractor can determine that fact for any individual patient.”
    And that being so, what point are you trying to make?

      The point is that it is only the innate intelligence of the body that does the healing with or without chiropractic, medical, any other, or no care. Do you think BJ understood or expressed this truth and if so where, when and how?

    The statement “does the healing” contains a condition, the context of intent. ii, vitalism is one of design and purpose. Mechanism (medicine, etc.) is a mechanical process that has no intent. It just does what it does because that’s how the machinery is wired, the reflection of how things physically react. No purpose, intent, just physical principle, law. That BJ introduced ii in the first place, he certainly understood and expressed this I’ll say theoretical truth. That he theologized ui certainly established this basic credo of having a purpose, a direction “doing the healing”, intent. Intelligence behind the action and properties of matters existence, behavior, and in the case of “living things”, adaptation and coordination. Reading your commentaries on BJ’s green books, there certainly exists his expressing this truth (theory). Early on, historically, as far as I can see, from what I’ve read. Understand? I don’t think I understand, therefore I can’t comment on BJ’s understanding. I assume he did, otherwise, why the minimalization and specificity of technique as in his endorsing HIO (for a period of time), and yeah, BJ Palmer, the developer. But he experimented. Somethings made sense and somethings did not. Overall, sure.
    Where, when and how? I think Joe Strauss knows more about the understanding of and the expression of the truth of ii. More than BJ. You know more about his where, when and how then I do, and certainly more about your own where, when and how, then I do.
    You are one of my mentors
