A Vitalistic Philosophy
The idea is that there is
an intelligence that organizes all things, both living and non living. It creates the physical properties that make
a rock a rock and makes water, water. A
part of this intelligence is what gives properties to all living things,
plants, animals and humans. It is the
intelligence that guides creation, evolution and healing.
Chiropractors call this intelligence, Innate
Intelligence. Meaning that we are born
with it. It is not learned from a
book, but yet it is able to do things
that the greatest minds on our planet have yet to be able to even
comprehend. That is the creating of
LIFE. It does things in our body that
even the greatest super computer in the world couldn’t do. That is coordinate all the functions of the
over 4 Quadrillion cells that make up the human body to function at once,
together in unison.
It does things that
we, with our limited knowledge can not comprehend, yet we judge things that
happen in our body because we think they shouldn’t be. For example, we eat something that is poison
and we throw up and have diarrhea. Yet
if you go to the drug store, how many bottles of medications are meant to stop
this reaction. We think we know more
than our bodies do. If we have
congestion when we get a cold, which helps the body fight the infection, how
much medication is available to decongest us.
If we run a fever, which is an intricate part of the immune systems
function, how many people take Tylenol to lower it.
We think we know more about how to run our
body than our innate intelligence does.
Yet, it would take hours to count to 4 quadrillion and our body does it
Consider how a person
begins. We start as one cell, on tiny
fertilized egg, which multiplies into two.
Sounds simple right. But I would
like to see a scientist be able to create two living cells from one. They may be able to “grow” one by providing
the right conditions, but it is still the innate intelligence that is making it
happen. Then the two cells become four, four
become eight and so on until the very first organ, the spinal cord begins to
form. The growing ball of cells uses the
spinal cord to orchestrate the differentiation of all the different cells into
all the different parts and organs of the body.
The vitalistic philosophy is based on the fact that the same
intelligence that created the body in the first place, will continue to
orchestrate the functions and also return the body back to its natural state
after it has been injured. Which is
healing. The innate intelligence will
continue to use the spinal cord as its means of connecting and contacting each
and every cell of the body so that it can keep it functioning the way is was
