Your Keystone of Health
The strength and stability of an arch is unparalleled in architecture. Each block supports massive loads from above while evenly dissipating stress to the foundation below - the most important block being the keystone. Without it, the entire structure would fail.
If your health was an arch made of building blocks like good dietary habits, proper rest and exercise, the 'keystone' holding everything together would be regular Chiropractic care. Without a clear Nerve System, your body isn't be able to take full advantage of all those good habits. Keeping your spine in proper alignment not only maintains structural integrity, but keeps your Nerve System functioning at its optimum.
Can your body withstand the loads of Life without Chiropractic care? Eating right and staying off the couch are both important to guarding your health, but it's a strong Nerve System (supported by regular spinal adjustments) that keeps everything locked in place. Make sure you're not missing this important keystone.
Happy Birthday Chiropractic!
For over a century Chiropractors have been introducing their clients to the best doctor on the planet...the one that lives INSIDE them. Here’s what we’ve accomplished so far.
Chiropractic is the largest DRUGLESS, non-medical healing profession in the world
Currently, Chiropractors practice in over 100 countries all over the globe
There are approximately 65,000 Chiropractors in the USA alone, and another 13,000 worldwide
Statistics show that 10-15% of the American population (30 to 40 million) have seen a Chiropractor
Those numbers are rising as more people grow weary of mainstream medicine’s failure to give them what they ultimately want… HEALTH! One Principle continues to draw the masses to Chiropractic - the acknowledgment of an innate intelligence within all living things, and the never ending pursuit to restore Life through its free expression. Not too shabby for only 119 years.
Did You Hear?
Did you know the very first Chiropractic adjustment wasn't for back pain? Here's how it all started as told by our founder Dr. D.D. Palmer in September of 1895…
"Harvey Lillard, a janitor, in the Ryan Block, where I had my office, had been so deaf for 17 years that he could not hear the racket of a wagon on the street or the ticking of a watch. I made inquiry as to the cause of his deafness and was informed that when he was exerting himself in a cramped, stooping position, he felt something give way in his back and immediately became deaf.
An examination showed a vertebra racked from its normal position. I reasoned that if that vertebra was replaced, the man's hearing should be restored. With this object in view, a half hour's talk persuaded Mr. Lillard to allow me to replace it. I racked it into position by using the spinous process as a lever and soon the man could hear as before.
There was nothing 'accidental' about this, as it was accomplished with an object in view, and the result expected was obtained. There was nothing 'crude' about this adjustment; it was specific, so much so that no Chiropractor has equaled it."
And that’s how Chiropractic was born - good thing D.D. was a great persuader!
Soaking Up Stress
Your Nerve System is the ultimate sponge, soaking up all the experiences, sensations and stresses you encounter every day. Like a sponge, it can only absorb so much before it becomes over-saturated and spills stress into your body. The result… PAIN, SICKNESS and WEAK PERFORMANCE!
The best thing you can do to prevent Nerve System over saturation is to get checked by your Chiropractor regularly and adjusted when necessary. Adjustments gently “wring out” accumulated tension in your Nerve System before it has a chance to build up and affect your health negatively.
If you’re feeling super-soaked from the stress of life, bring your saturated nerves to the Chiropractor for some TLC. You’ll experience more energy, improved sleep and a better overall feeling of wellness if you do.
Safeguarding Your Health
If health is our most precious treasure, stress is a menacing thief trying to rob us of it every day. And if you're not diligently protecting your health against potential break-ins, chances are you'll lose it without any warning.
Stress negatively affects our health in many ways, but perhaps the most devastating is its effect on our Nerve System. Studies have shown a link between stress and a phenomena called Sympathetic Dominance - a condition where the 'fight or flight' functions of your Nerve System become chronically overactive, leading to overload in organic functions, fatigue and eventually disease (1). The good news...
When stress is trying to rob you blind, Chiropractic care is the vault protecting your most valuable assets. Just don't use it for bad backs and bad necks. You can rely on regular adjustments to safeguard your nerve system and preserve your WHOLE health. It's for so much more than pain relief.

Your Personal Google
How much stomach acid does it take to digest a cheeseburger? Or, how much calcium is needed to heal a broken leg? How about a fever, how high should it reach to fight a common cold? You don't need to surf Google for the answers, your INNATE search engine already knows.
If you doubt there's genius inside you, just consider this – the 50,000,000 cells in your body that will die while you read this sentence… your innate intelligence knows how to replace every single one of them. The trillions of mental impulses coursing through your Nerve System at this moment… innate is moving them at speeds approaching 248 mile per hour. The number of heartbeats you’ll get in your lifetime… innate reserved around 3 billion for you.
Google may be the web's leading source for information, but it's got nothing over your innate intelligence when it comes to keeping you alive and well. Innate has solutions to just about any health challenge you have. All you have to do is search within to find the answer.
