Traditionally, we have viewed disease as a
degenerative process. However, disease is better understood when viewed
as "dis-ease" in the human body. Dis-ease means "without
ease," for example, when we suffer the symptoms of a pinched nerve
or nutritional deficiencies. When this occurs, the mind and body is in dis-ease.
Health is not merely the absence of disease; health is when every part of
the body is working together effortlessly, relaxed and at ease.
Too Much or Not Enough Energy
In The Chiropractor's Adjustor (1910, p.
36), D. D. Palmer, D.C., wrote, "...the basic principles of our science
is that too much or not enough energy is disease." Everything in
the human body works in biorhythms. Energy flows in waves through and
around the body to energize the organs, glands and systems. Wherever energy
goes, a chemical or nutrition goes with it. Every organ has an electrical
charge, and when over-charged or under-charged, dis-ease or lack of ease
An over-charged organ is recognized by the
production of too much chemistry or too much nutrition. As a result, body
chemistry becomes imbalanced, organs become enlarged, body shapes become
disproportionate, obese, etc.
An under-charged organ produces such a slow
metabolism or biochemistry that the body does not have sufficient energy
to digest, absorb, or assimilate nutrients, to eliminate toxins and waste,
or to motivate itself in an alert, agile, swift manner. Wherever there
is insufficient energy, there is also insufficient chemistry or malnutrition.
When the body is not at ease, it is an effort to go on each day.
Dis-ease can create a domino affect. In
speeding up or slowing down the body chemistry, dis-ease can cause organs
and glands to become dysfunctional and inhibit cells from regenerating,
repairing and growing. The eventual, long-term effect of dis-ease is disease,
as we know it today.
The Doctor Within
B. J. Palmer, D.C., said, "The real
doctor is the source that lives within you, that heals within you minute
by minute every day." In other words, the Doctor Within is the innate
intelligence of the human body.
For example, when we cut our hand with a
piece of glass, we do not have to command the body to close the wound
and grow new skin. The Doctor Within knows how to heal itself. However,
we do have to nourish the skin, disinfect it and remove the glass, or
it cannot heal.
Thus, this innate doctor relies upon us
to assist in the healing process. Our role is to:
1) identify the body's needs,
2) provide the substances required for healing and
3) remove the obstacles or interferences to healing.
This same process of healing on the outside of the body, which we
can see, is constantly at work within the body, which we cannot
The substances the body requires for healing
are the very substances it requires to live. We know that the human body
cannot survive and death would ensue without air, food, water and sleep.
These not only comprise the basic substances for the very existence of
life itself, they also suggest that the quality of our air, food,
water and sleep determines the quality of our life and health.
Additionally, biochemical individuality dictates that people have individual
requirements for these substances. Therefore, if deficiency is the cause
of dis-ease, using a "clinical" nutrition interpretation of
body chemistries (blood, urine, saliva, stool, mineral hair tissue, etc.)
and other evaluation techniques, the C.C.N. can identify and recommend
the exact dietary, nutritional supplementation and lifestyle protocols
each patient requires.
Sometimes, it is not a lack of these substances
that inhibit healing, but an excess, such as too much energy, too much
nutrition or too many poisons from our air, food and water. Organs and
mechanical structures are nutritional energy extensions of the brain and
nervous system. Electrical surges from organs innervated by pinched nerves
can cause systems to burnout and self-destruct. If excess is the cause
of dis-ease, using a clinical nutrition biochemical analysis and other
assessment techniques, the C.C.N. can identify and recommend lifestyle
protocols to assist in removing the cause of interference to healing.
A Body At Ease Is Ageless
The free energetic flow of the chemistry
of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, hormones, hormone precursors and synergists
is like an orchestra--it brings about the harmony or homeostasis of all
the parts of the body working together -- relaxed, effortless and at ease.
The human body becomes agile, swift, flexible, fit and proportional. Body
fat is reduced and muscles are increased. The skin regains color and firmness;
the face becomes soft and smooth; wrinkles are less or non-existent. This
is the true art of preventive healthcare, which is the major thrust for
healthcare in the 21st Century.
The very manner in which the body is designed
suggests that it was originally made for the purpose of healing itself
and living a very long, healthy life. With 94% of old atoms being exchanged
for new ones each year, aging, in its original design, was meant to be
a very slow process.
The clinical nutrition interpretation of
blood and other chemistries, along with specific evaluation techniques,
equips the C.C.N. with the ability to identify dis-ease and accurately
assess each patient's individual nutritional biochemistry to provide the
substances for and remove the obstacles to their healing. With a clinical
nutrition biochemical analysis, the C.C.N. has the opportunity
to work with the Doctor Within to assist in its ongoing process of health
restoration and maintenance, and even slow down the aging process.
With a clinical nutrition biochemical analysis from a Board Certified
Clinical Nutritionist (C.C.N.), it is now possible for you to improve
your health no matter what your current health challenges. Following a
clinical nutrition program provides you with the opportunity to reverse
dis-ease and promoting health (ease) and longevity well for the rest of
