Hey, it’s Dr. Troy here!
Patients ask me, does chiropractic prevent cancer?
You have to understand the role of the nerve system. Bill Maher in a PBS special said, “the nerve system is a stationary immune system, and the immune system is actually a mobile nerve system”.
So when you understand the major premise of chiropractic that this amazing intelligence inside of you called the brain, runs everything. Everything is under control from the intelligence that comes out of your brain. That energy that’s generated down through the spinal cord out through the nerves. If that information is uninterrupted your body is going to work at its peak.
Now, cancer and all of these different things are just an indicator that something’s not right with your body, something is out of balance. You could be toxic, you could have too much stress, your food could be poor, you could be exposed to different things. So there are a lot of different causes.
Absolutely, I think chiropractic is beneficial for preventing these types of problems. So our job is to look and see if there is a clear pathway from the brain’s messages to the tissues. Whether it’s the glandular system, the musculoskeletal system, immune system, digestive system.
That’s huge too. A lot of people say death begins in the colon. So, keeping the nerve system functioning and working properly is going to help prevent all kinds of problems. Not only cancer but all kinds of ailments, sicknesses, and illnesses.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had patients come in and say since they have been coming and getting adjusted regularly they don’t get sick anymore. They say they don’t get the cold or the flu like they used to. So just anecdotal evidence that says chiropractic helps the body function and work better.
There’s research on patients with AIDS who have received chiropractic care while diagnosed with HIV showing a boost in their immune system. So whether it’s HIV, cancer, AIDS, any of these things, chiropractic care can help the body work and function at it’s best.
There’s my answer on can chiropractic prevent cancer in our population?
