    Actually, most pain proceeds good and most pleasure proceeds bad.

      I tend to agree but could you give some examples to explain, as it relates to chiropractic?

      • Joe Donofrio 05/06/2017, 2:07 pm:

        Examples: child birth, most pain in diseases increases before healing, “it’s always darkest before the dawn”. Examples: sex proceeds childbirth, a few drinks proceeds a hangover, eating great cookies proceeds weight gain.

          Do you mean proceeds (toward) or precedes (from/by)? I can see both under certain conditions:
          Example #1 sex proceeds toward childbirth… sometimes. It’s always (preceded) by sex (only one exception in history.
          #2. a few drinks may proceed toward a hangover,depending on the person’s ability to handle them.
          #3 eating great cookies depends upon how many, as to whether it proceeds toward “weigh gain”. which may happen without you ever eating a cookie.
          The issue that is most important to chiropractors is whether the vs must proceed toward a medical condition or a medical condition must be preceded by a vs. That’s a little tougher question but I would really like to hear your take. Thanks

            IMO, all VS’s begin to make subtle physiologic changes somewhere in the body, But, not all changes are pathologic (ergo the “range” that is normal); not all changes will proceed to pathology (thanks to Ii’s striving to heal and maintain life); not all changes are determinable ( thanks to medical testing’s shortcomings) and not all pm’s live long enough to exhibit signs and symptoms and be diagnosable .Conversely. When a VS is corrected not all Ii’s will have time and circumstances required for healing.
