As you might expect, chiropractors look at health differently than the mainstream allopathic (traditional medical) model. Perhaps the most profound distinction is that while the medical model looks at the problem in the person, chiropractic health practitioners look at the person with the problem!
In fact, the discipline of chiropractic began with a profound question asked by its founder, D. D. Palmer:
I desired to know why one person was ailing and his associate eating at the same table, working in the same shop was not. Why? What difference was there in the two persons that caused one to have pneumonia, a cold, typhoid or rheumatism, while his partner, similarly situated, escaped? Why?
Good question. What causes one person to catch the bug thats going around while another person, in the same household, is not similarly afflicted? Same with allergens. If the real problem was the pollen, cat dander or spicy food, then everyone exposed would have an allergic reaction. But clearly thats not the case.
The chiropractic health care paradigm begins by taking an inventory of the integrity of the nervous system that controls and regulates every cell, tissue, organ and system of the body. Even the immune system.
