almost every chapter in this book, we list nerve pressure as a
possible cause of organ dysfunction and that it should be evaluated
by a chiropractor.
energy source or electricity that makes each organ function is
the nervous system. Even when the organ is perfectly healthy,
if some factor is blocking the nerve flow to it, it will not function
properly. It is like a good electric light with a faulty
switch or wire. Changing the bulb won't help, we need to
find the cause and correct it.
When nerve pressure is the cause or a contributing
factor in organ dysfunction, it is the author's opinion
that a good chiropractor is the best trained professional
to locate and correct this aspect of the problem.
Remember though, if for example you suffer from hypoadrenia
and the nerve system is a contributing cause, but not the
only one, and you indulge in sweets, caffeine, alcohol,
and are under lots of stress, many more corrective measures
must be taken and the faulty living habits eliminated before
restoration of health is complete. Once again we stress
that there are many possible causes of dysfunction.
We must in each case find the cause or causes contributing
and deal with each one to be able to restore the body correctly
Research done at the University of Colorado
has shown that only 45mm. mercury pressure is needed for
10 seconds on a spinal nerve, to cause a 60% loss of that
nerve's electrical potential. Put a blood pressure
cuff on your arm and inflate it to 45mm.Hg to see how little
this is. If a nerve's electrical potential is decreased
by 60%, only 40% of the energy that usually reaches the
organs, glands, muscles, supplied by that nerve will reach
these structures, and decreased function will result.
If the nerve pressure stays for 1-3 hours or more, neurotoxins
are produced. For peripheral nerves150mm. Pressure
should be easy for the reader to visualize how a slight rotation
in the vertebra, or a muscle pulling too hard, or not hard enough,
on a vertebral attachment can set up tissue irritation, possible
inflammation, and resultant pressure of 45mm. or more, with the
resultant loss of nerve supply to the involved areas.
properly executed vertebral adjustment can often remove nerve
pressure or realign the spine so the tissue inflammation has a
chance to subside, and the nerve supply to the involved organs,
glands, muscles, etc. are restored to normal. The author
feels that reflex work or massage to the involved muscles will
also help assure that the problem does not recur, since muscles
play an important role in holding bones in proper position.
Proper exercise is also important.
diet, emotional stress, etc., can cause weakened muscles and tissues.
The author has viewed it many times that after a party
or wedding there would be an increase in back and neck strains.
We feel that the excess of sweets and/or alcohol indulged in during
these get-togethers put the muscles in a weakened state and decrease our capacity to lift, thus making muscular injury more likely
to occur. In these cases the dietary indiscretions caused
the vertebral misalignments and both needed to be dealt with.
are listed levels of nerve supply to the various organs in the
body (occasionally there is slight variation between individuals).
Some levels listed are not direct nerve supplies but tend to be
involved due to reflex action.
