Subluxation and Micronutrient Deficiency: The Parallel Effect of the Dripping Gutter

There is a parallel relationship between subluxation and micronutrient deficiency, affecting your health

There is a parallel relationship between subluxation and micronutrient deficiency as it relates to health and disease. Subluxation means a bone is out of place with the segment above, below or both, and interferes with the flow of normal nerve transmission. This interference causes dis-ease or imbalance, which then leads to full blown disease or cell, tissue and organ death. Micronutrient deficiency is a lack of needed vitamins and minerals in the body. Micronutrient deficiency can be caused from either vital nutrients missing from food, or from nutrients being depleted from your body by over whelming physical, chemical and emotional stress, sometimes even both can be the cause.
Dr. Fred Schofield of Atlas Chiropractic in Northwest Phoenix, has helped thousands of people detect and correct Subluxation and Mineral Deficiency.

Effect of the Dripping Gutter, Little Hinges Swing Big Doors

If you watch a dripping gutter, on the surface, it can appear that nothing is happening. Based on this observation, you may wonder why you should fix the dripping gutter. However, as the water drops one drop at a time, over years, the asphalt beneath will be chipped away. The naked eye cannot see the damage being done in real time, but when you come back, a few years later, there is a hole in the parking lot. Subluxation can have a similar effect on your health. If a bone gets out of place and is interfering with a nerve and causing cell death, the next day there may be lack of symptoms or pain. But, the imbalance and cell death becomes tissue and organ death over years. If your food supply lacks the needed vitamins and minerals for only one meal, the naked eye will not see a change. But, if the food supply lacks vitamins and minerals over several years, the community that the food supports will begin to get out of balance and contract disease. Expand that out to a nation or a continent and an entire planet of sickness will result.

BJ Palmer, Discovery of Chiropractic, the Big Idea Solution

“A slip on the snowy sidewalk in winter is a small thing. It happens to millions. A fall from a ladder in the summer is a small thing. It also happens to millions. The slip or fall produces a subluxation. The subluxation is a small thing. The subluxation produces pressure on a nerve. That pressure is a small thing. That decreased flowing produces a dis-eased body and brain. That is a big thing to that man (woman/child).Multiply that sick man (woman/child) by a thousand and you control the physical and mental welfare of a city. Multiply that man (woman/child) by one hundred thirty million, and you forecast and can prophesy the physical and mental status of a nation.
So the slip or fall, the subluxation, pressure, flow of mental images and dis-ease are big enough to control the thoughts and actions of a nation. Now comes a man (woman). And one man (woman) is a small thing. This man (woman) gives an adjustment. The adjustment is a small thing. The adjustment replaces the subluxation. That is a small thing. The adjusted subluxation releases pressure upon nerves. That is a small thing. The released pressure restores health to a man (woman/child). This is a big thing to that man (woman or child).Multiply that well man (woman/child) by a thousand, and you step up the physical and mental welfare of a city. Multiply that well man (woman or child) by a million, and you increase the efficiency of a state. Multiply that well man (woman/child) by a hundred thirty million, and you have produced a healthy, wealthy, and better race for posterity. So, the adjustment of the subluxation to release pressure upon nerves, to restore mental impulse flow, to restore health, is big enough to rebuild the thoughts and actions of the world.
The idea that knows the cause, that can correct the cause of dis-ease, is one of the biggest ideas known. Without it, nations fall; with it, nations rise.
This idea is the biggest I know of.”

– B. J. Palmer, 1944

The Mineral Big Idea Analogy

Just as BJ Palmer had a BIG IDEA to improve a nation through the reduction of subluxations, proper supply of vitamins and minerals is required to maintain a person, a family, a community and a nation’s health. With the depletion of our nation’s soil, here are a few steps your family can take to make sure you getting what you need. First, maximizing your nervous system function through Chiropractic makes sure your body is using what vitamins and minerals you take in. Second, improve how you handle stress. Overwhelming stress depletes vitamins and minerals. Third, eat locally grown organic produce. These foods have higher concentrations of vitamins and minerals. Lastly, take a high quality supplement like Wuji Chlorella  to insure you are filling the gap between what your body needs and what it is getting.
