How the Body Heals Itself

woman with arms out at beachWhile conventional medicine takes an outside-in approach to healing via medication or surgery, the philosophy of chiropractic is based on the foundation that the inborn intelligence of the body can heal it from almost anything.

It’s what connects everything together: the power that made the body heals the body, so the focus of chiropractic is on the nervous system to ensure that it can communicate with every cell, tissue, and organ of the body to make sure it’s at its full potential.

Spinal Health & the Body’s Ability to Self-Heal

“When the spine is under stress—our term for that is ‘subluxated’—that means that the spine is not aligned properly, or not moving the way it’s designed to, which creates stress on the nervous system,” said Dr. Jeff. That creates interference with the body’s ability to communicate, which then, in turn, interferes with the body’s ability to heal and repair itself, as it was designed to. Chiropractic care removes subluxations so the body can function properly.

The following lifestyle factors also contribute to maximizing one’s well-being:


Naturally, nutrition plays a vital role in our well-being. We need to ensure our body has the essential foods it needs. A well-balanced diet can help the body achieve its healing capacity.


It’s crucial to catch enough Zzzs each night. Adults should get at least 7-8 eight hours of sleep a night, and children, particularly little kids, need even more.


Exercise creates motion in the spinal joints, which helps keep them healthy. It sets the foundation for keeping the body moving. The body is designed to move and if it doesn’t, it starts to have other problems, which eventually turn into spinal problems and then interference with the nervous system. It’s a vicious cycle.


Did you know that being in an upbeat state has a positive effect on overall health? Having an attitude of gratitude, for example, can enhance mental wellness.
