How often does someone go to a doctor to fix their pain, disease and illness without considering the bigger picture?

Every organ, muscle, tissue and cell in your body is supplied by your nervous system.

So, if we look at our back pain, shoulder pain, knee pain, headaches, insomnia, irritable bowel, digestive issues, reproductive issues, or any other illness or disease in isolation, and believe they’re somehow separate, then we will never see the full picture.

Absolutely everything in your body is connected to your nervous system.

In 1921, Dr. Henry Winsor conducted a series of three studies at the University of Pennsylvania involving the dissection of cadavers.

The object was to determine whether any correlation existed between minor subluxations (or spinal blockages) of the spine and diseased organs, or whether they were entirely independent of each other. Diseases of the stomach, lungs, liver, gallstones, pancreas, spleen, kidney, prostate, bladder, uterus and thymus were all reflected in these studies.

In more than 95% of cases, the diseased organ was supplied by the same sympathetic nerve segments as the location of the blocked vertebrae.

Picture an apple tree filled with beautiful apples.

As you admire the apple tree, your attention is drawn to one diseased apple that’s brown and bruised. Then you see there’s more diseased apples. In fact, the tree is filled with them.

Now, let me ask you, would you take each separate apple to dissect them to see what’s happening or would you look at the trunk of the tree: Does it have enough sunlight? Does it have enough water? Does it have enough good soil with nourishment?

Let’s assume you looked at the tree and made sure it had enough sunlight, water and nourishment in the soil. The diseased apples would drop off and beautiful apples would grow again.

Similarly, this is how our body works.

Our spine is our tree trunk. All our nerve fibres are like little branches extending out keeping our “apples” healthy. 

Your body is always speaking to you.

Pain, disease and illness is how your body gets your attention so you can release stored stress in your body..

The nerves that extend from your spinal cord can become blocked and restricted from being able to supply the organs, cells, and tissue. When the channel from your brain, through your spinal cord and into the nerves is moving and free from interference, healing can happen.

Your “apples” receive the supply of energy and nourishment they need. I want to encourage you to connect to your body: how much stress is there in your life? how much stress has been stored in your body? Is your nervous system free from blockages and interference or is it blocked?

I can help you understand your body and release the blockages from your nervous system.
