Happy Independence Day!
Just curious…why does everyone call it 4th of July instead of
Independence Day? We don't call New
Year's the 1st of January or Halloween the 31st of October…you never hear
anyone saying how excited they are to get off for the 1st or the 31st, but
Independence Day is simply called "the 4th."
Hmmm…just a thought…
Not to be lost in the fireworks, pool-side brewskies,
hotdogs, and baseball that the 4th of July has come to be known for is the fact
that it is the day that we are technically supposed to be celebrating the
independence of this country. I can
conjure up a bunch of reasons why the celebratory day is more looked at as a day
off than a celebration of American history.
After all, it was 242 years ago that all this independence stuff took
place. So, forget that it's a
national holiday and just remember the message behind it…freedom.
Freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of
expression…Hmmm, freedom of expression…while many of us may take it for
granted, the brain is constantly seeking this freedom so it may express life to
the body. With that, I bring to your
attention the word of the day: subluxation.
Taken at its most simplified meaning, subluxation is a condition of less
light…or less life. Resting inside
the top bone in your spine and the opening at the bottom of your skull is the
brainstem, the body's master control that transmits vital messages from the
brain to the nerves leading to the proper area of the body.
Life is very complicated in text books, but it's really no more
complicated than the brain sending a signal to the brainstem for it direct to a
specific area of the body. Brain à
Body (heart, lungs, ears, eyes, spleen, liver, skin, muscles, nose, etc.).
That's life…and the subluxation occurs when the alignment of that top
bone in the spine and the opening in the bottom of your skull is thrown off,
placing pressure on the brainstem and decreasing its ability to act as your
Freedom of expression allows the brain to send a healthy,
normal message to the body, but the subluxation takes away the body's freedom of
expression. In doing so, the body
can't function the way it supposed to (the way it is accustomed to).
Imagine if our freedoms that we, as a society, have become so accustomed
to, were stripped away. Some may
argue that we're in the process of that actually happening right now.
Subsequently, the country is breaking down.
Conditions in the
So, just as the fledgling American colonies were battling
for their freedom against the British, the body fights for freedom from the
subluxation. Remember that we needed
help to defeat our tyrannical enemy. Without
a little assistance, the
Remember that the body needs help to be rid of the
subluxation…call it what you will…call it the "condition of the body
breaking down into illness (COTBBDIL)" if you want to…but there are
people out there that can check to see if you are subluxated; people that can
tell you whether or not your body is functioning at its optimum.
Using a gauge, these people check your brainstem's integrity.
In the event that your brainstem is compromised, then they'll make a
correction that restores the body's freedom of expression and allows you to live
in abundance. It's so simple, but
it's so effective. Such is the
reason that people with asthma, hypertension, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, and
so many other conditions have found renewed freedom in their lives to do the
things that they figured would never be possible.
It's not miraculous, unbelievable, or astounding…it's FREEDOM.
Today, while you are enjoying your day off, playing with
the kids, laying out in the sun, being in awe of the beautiful fireworks, or
whatever it is that you've chosen to do, I want you to keep in mind that the
same freedom that our forefathers fought for 242 years ago is the same freedom
that our body seeks when it is subluxated. Help
your body fight for its freedom and have yourself checked to make sure you
aren't subluxated. Visit
