What difference was there in these two persons that caused one to have various diseases, while his partner escaped?” This question is easily answered today as we recognize the toxicity in the air, food, and water we consume. Chemtrails mark the skies, genetically modified foods are sold in our stores, and the quality of our water supply is so poor that the bottled water industry generates $11 billion a year. In 1895, Dr. Palmer was troubled that our environment would reach this level of toxicity. In today’s toxic era, it’s more crucial than ever for me to do all I can to help my each of my patients improve their physical and emotional health and their quality of life again. How resistant are you to all of these toxins in the environment? How capable is your body of resisting the stress from the negative forces that surround us? What is the answer to D.D. Palmer’s question? Without a doubt, an essential part of the answer is that your body must adapt in a healthy way to your surroundings. The system within your body that controls and coordinates every function and adapts you to your environment is your nervous system. Healthy nerve supply is essential for a healthy life. What D.D. Palmer discovered back in 1895 was that the human nervous system controls every function of your body. It’s the communication highway that your body relies on for optimum health. Any interference to your nervous system caused by physical, chemical, or emotional stress will result in suboptimal health.

I realize now that my whole life has been structured around becoming a Doctor of Chiropractic and teaching the Chiropractic philosophy to others. From my school years as a competitive athlete and my days working in a veteran’s hospital as an exercise therapist with a specialty in spinal-cord injuries to becoming a Doctor of Chiropractic, I believe nothing happens by accident. And now, 36 years later, I also realize how significant the discovery of chiropractic was 123 years ago. On Sept. 18, Chiropractic celebrates another birthday since its founding in 1895 by D.D. Palmer, DC. Each September, I go back and study the basic tenets of the Chiropractic philosophy. I also look back in gratitude for the early Chiropractors who were sent to jail because they were falsely accused of “practicing medicine without a license.” The reason they didn’t simply pay the fine and chose instead to go to jail, was because of their firm belief and application in being drugless practitioners. They wanted nothing to do with the practice of medicine and were willing to go to jail for it. Over 100 years ago, Palmer asked this important question that sparked a new profession: “I desired to know why one person was ailing and his associate, eating at the same table, working in the same shop, at the same bench, was not.

–Dr. Steven Alff, D.C. Make good choices across the board, live the 123-year lifestyle, and enjoy a sensational century. Isn’t it time that you make the health of your spine and nervous system a priority and schedule your next Chiropractic checkup? birth process, childhood falls, accidents, or stress of any kind. Because your natural IT system can be affected by this condition, it can result in immediate symptoms and mimic any diagnosis, or it can lie dormant and asymptomatic for decades, which can lead to many types of health problems in the future. If you truly want to strengthen your body’s ability to adapt, you must make the correction and elimination of this condition a priority, before it leads to complications. Choosing to eat healthy, nontoxic food is an important choice. Exercising to keep your body fit and strong will build your confidence, increase your resistance, and help prevent some health issues. However, without a healthy spine and nervous system, the food and the fitness cannot be assimilated properly. Dr. Palmer was correct, and the profession he founded has lived on for over 100 years and counting.
