So what is the big idea? Where did it come from? I’m referring to Chiropractic philosophy and other philosophies that stem from inductive reasoning. This is reasoning based upon generalized patterns, trends, and observations, as opposed to specific facts or data.
The word “chiro” comes from Latin…
Now, a brief history of Chiropractic. It was established in 1895 by Daniel David Palmer in Davenport, Iowa. The word “chiro” comes from Latin and means hand or done by hands. Practico comes from practice or practitioner.
The nervous system is protected by the skull, spinal column, sacrum and pelvis, as well as our extremities.
The basic principle of Chiropractic is that health depends primarily upon an intact and properly functioning nervous system. This system is the body’s communication and thus controls and governs all other systems. The nervous system is protected by the skull, spinal column, sacrum and pelvis, as well as our extremities. When vertebrae and other joints misalign or move abnormally, stress is entered into the communication pathways. That stress is registered and monitored by the nervous system in order to control body function in any or all systems as needed.
It was asserted in Chiropractic philosophy that there is an innate or inborn intelligence in all organisms. That intelligence defines what an organism is whether or not that organism is a human being, an animal, a plant, or a microbe. It is that which is alive. It contains and has life in it.
It was further proposed that there is a “Universal” intelligence that works or exists above and beyond the innate capacity of an organism. The Universal intelligence stems from above, down, and inside out with and through innate intelligence. That is essentially the “Big idea”.
Deductive reasoning relies upon parts and pieces rather than proposing a unifying whole.
In contrast, deductive reasoning relies upon parts and pieces rather than proposing a unifying whole. It embraces facts and accumulated data. It offers a materialistic point of view. Man and other organisms can be summed up by their parts. This is the Man to Mud theory which practically divorces us from our innate intelligence and that which we call life.
It is the innate intelligence that serves as a bridge or link between our nervous system, body communication, and body function. Our health is ultimately dependent upon that bridge. That’s the Big Idea!
