“Within YOU is a ‘grain’ of the universal power. If there were not, you would cease to move, see, hear, breathe, feel—exist as a HUMAN INTELLIGENT BEING. “As long as that power within you has control of your body a state of HEALTH exists. Should something interfere with normal control of that internal power—then you cease to enjoy your birthright—HEALTH—instead a state of dis-ease becomes prominent.
“Science has taught us to recognize when dis-ease exists. We learn to call what would seem to be a stomach dis-ease ‘indigestion.’ If it is dis-ease of the kidney ‘nephritis’ would be the term. But regardless of the term to designate the type of dis-ease—the reason for the dis-ease is the inability of your internal power (Innate Intelligence) to properly regulate body function.
“In Chiropractic we maintain that your Innate controls all body functions through the nerves of your body. If some factor causes a disturbance in the nerves so messages cannot get from the brain (source to the ending of the nerve) then at the end of the nerve you begin to feel the state of dis-ease. “HEALTH is the result of Innate having 100% normal control of your life through the nerves of your physical body.
“Chiropractic is a method used to release interference to nerve supply so that the power within can heal you. “Our instruments tell us when trouble in the nerves has developed. The adjustment is made to correct bony misplacement—to get pressure off the nerves so they can do their normal work.
“Healing is a process afforded you by your Creator and is above and beyond the control of man. “Your Chiropractor does everything possible to help Innate heal—but he cannot heal nor can anyone else produce healing for you. When the right adjustment is made, Innate goes to work. You feel the results when dis-ease turns to ease.”
