Where A Consultation Is A Conversation
- NOT A Commitment
Fever and other symptoms in health, healing and immune development.
At Align Chiropractic we seek to FACILIATE healing by restoring normal nerve function via the detection and correction of Structural Shifts away from what is considered normal. The chart below is from a standard anatomy and physiology textbook. You can find a similar chart in ANY A/P textbook in the world. It shows the sequence of events during tissue injury healing.
If you read the chart carefully, why is it that the arterioles dilate and why do the capillaries leak protein rich fluid? What is leukocytosis and why is it important? As this chart clearly shows, symptoms, ALL SYMPTOMS are either a part of or a direct result of the normal natural healing process.
“Inflammation is one of the most important mechanisms of host defense since it marshals the attack on the injurious agent and leads to repair of the affected tissue.” – The Cell Biology of Inflammation
One can conclude that you can NEVER improve health or resolve a specific health condition—by chasing and eliminating the symptom. At Align Chiropractic we focus on the CAUSE of Secondary Conditions (symptoms), the correction of Structural Shifts towards what is considered normal. We understand that a quick fix and patch is not in the best interest of our patients when there is a shift in the foundation of the body that is the spine.
Although not illustrated on the above chart, it is the nervous system which controls and coordinates every aspect of the process and without a proper nerve supply—the process will never be completed (which may be a contributing factor in chronic “itis” conditions).
Think of a saxophone player in a symphony orchestra—it is not enough for them to play their one piece with precision—they must do so in coordination with two-hundred other musicians—in order to achieve perfect harmony. Multiple that by a complexity of about 50 billion and you will see how the nervous system does not JUST control but coordinates the timing and sequence of all of the biological events in the human body.
“Through the process of developing and then conquering infection, the child gets rid of acquired toxins and poisons from the body and also gets a generous boost to the immune system.” – HEALING ARTS PRESS
“Whenever the immune system deals successfully with an infection, it emerges from the experience stronger and better able to confront similar threats in the future. Our immune system develops in combat. If, at the first sign of infection, you always jump in with antibiotics, you do not give the immune system a chance to grow stronger.” – ANDREW WEIL, M.D.
All of the childhood symptoms, such as fever, rashes, etc are all part of the strengthening and development of the immune system-and if they are inhibited, the development and strengthening of the child is hindered.
So not only are Childhood infections (and some diseases) normal, not only are they natural, they are downright BENEFICIAL, because they strengthen the immune system (and they also develop critical cell to cell biological signaling in the body).
