Chiropractic Care and Innate Intelligence Part 1

One of the foundational beliefs embedded in chiropractic care is the idea that we all have innate intelligence. This innate intelligence knows how to keep things functioning within the body. These things, for example, can be heart rate, hormone regulation, fear responses, and experiencing love. 

Daniel D. Palmer was very metaphysical in his beliefs behind him finding Chiropractic as a profession. In his belief he stated: 

“That which I named ‘innate’ is a segment of that intelligence which fills the universe.” 

~ Daniel D. Palmer

He goes on to say: 

“The philosophy of chiropractic is founded upon the knowledge of the manner in which vital functions are performed by innate in health and disease. When the controlling intelligence is able to transmit mental impulses to all parts of the body, free and unobstructed, we have normal action which is health.” 

~ Daniel D. Palmer

Whether it’s innate intelligence, light, energy body, chi, ki, or life-force energy, we all know that something else is at work other than our physical body. There is a noticeable temperature change in the body when a person passes away, so something leaves us! That something is what gives us life and “intelligence.” I think D.D. Palmer had some truth in what he claimed.

Yours in Health,
