Dis­ease; Under­stand­ing The Cause

laude Bernard was a 19th cen­tury French phys­i­ol­o­gist and con­tem­po­rary of French chemist Louis Pas­teur. The two famous doc­tors argued through­out their lives as to what really was the cause of dis­ease, the soil or the seed. Pas­teur insisted it was the seed (germ) while Bernard claimed it was the soil (the body). On Pas­teurs death bed, it is said that he admit­ted that Bernard was right; he said, ” it is the soil, not the seed.”

The seed (germ fac­tors) or the soil (the body, host fac­tors) argu­ment was as preva­lent then as it is now again today. Today many med­ical authors are agree­ing that, although germs are cer­tainly a fac­tor involved in the dis­eases of man, the germ alone is not the cause of dis­ease. Dr. B. J. Palmer, the devel­oper of chi­ro­prac­tic, and the son of the man who dis­cov­ered chi­ro­prac­tic stated:

If the germ the­ory of dis­ease were cor­rect, there would be no one liv­ing to believe it.”

Think about it for a moment, and you will see the com­mon sense in Dr. Palmers statement.

Some med­ical doc­tors and most Chi­ro­prac­tors agree that the germ, though being part of the dis­ease syn­drome, is not the direct cause of dis­ease. First a per­son must be sus­cep­ti­ble to the germ. Germs will always be with us and our con­cern should be to strengthen our resis­tance to them.

Dr. D.D. Palmer, the dis­cov­erer of chi­ro­prac­tic stated, “Dis­ease is abnor­mal per­for­mance of cer­tain func­tions: the abnor­mal activ­ity has its causes. ” Chi­ro­prac­tic has sought to find these causes which often are due to nerve inter­fer­ence along the spine caused by a spinal mis­align­ment, called sub­lux­a­tion. Sub­lux­a­tions can impair nor­mal nerve trans­mis­sion which then causes abnor­mal body func­tion, low­er­ing the bodys resis­tance and mak­ing the body sus­cep­ti­ble to disease.

Chi­ro­prac­tic Sci­ence holds that reg­u­lar chi­ro­prac­tic care helps pre­vent dis­ease and main­tains the body in a high state of health. That is why mil­lions of peo­ple choose to receive reg­u­lar monthly chi­ro­prac­tic care.

The cause of dis­ease is within you, it is the lack of your bodys abil­ity to ward off dis­ease. Increase this abil­ity through the nat­ural drug­less method of chi­ro­prac­tic care.
