Symptoms are one way the body not only communicates a problem to us, but also contributes to the natural healing process within each of us.  Exactly why do they occur?  They were inherently there at birth and serve a powerful purpose. 



  • Kills bacteria and viruses
  • Slows the reproduction of viruses and bacteria
  • Promotes chemical reactions in the body to fight infection
  • Promotes the production of a cancer-fighting agent, called Interferon

Diarrhea and Vomiting:

  • Eliminates poisons, bacteria and germs from your body

Pain and Stiffness:

  • Acts as a natural brace
  • Warns of an injury to prevent further damage
  • Alarm to let you know the body is not in balance

Coughing, Sneezing and Runny Nose:

  • Expels germs and toxins
  • Sloughs old mucous, allowing a new healthy lining


Prescription drugs and over-the-counter drugs may diminish or eliminate pain and symptoms; however, if the cause of the symptoms are not addressed, covering them may very well hide a larger problem.  If the cause of the problem is a subluxation, it only makes sense to correct the cause that's creating the imbalance in your body.

To eliminate symptoms may actually hinder the innate process that brings your body back to a balanced state.  Symptoms play a powerful role in your body's natural healing process.  To understand the purpose of symptoms reveals the brilliance with which we were created.


"All the drugs in the world could not adjust a subluxated vertebrae."
