Dr. Bernie Siegel, M.D. author of the bestseller LOVE, MEDICINE AND MIRACLES and PEACE, LOVE, AND HEALING,has been on the NY Times Best Sellers List for years.
Dr Siegel’s main ingredient is to return people to their own self-healing capacity, “an ability given to us by our creator.” He focuses on the “mind-body connection which is bounded by the nervous system and its messenger molecules.”
He asks people to embrace life, rather than avoiding death, and in so doing free the energy locked in fear. Recognizing that within every human being lives the greatest drugstore in the world with all the wonder drugs imaginable, he advocates teaching people to use their innate ability to produce those chemicals.
Dr. Siegel sees the challenge of illness as an opportunity for growth and transformation.
Finally, he urges the medical community to turn its attention away from disease and death toward health and life.
The popularity of his books and his frequent appearances on talk shows indicates the public endorsement of his perspective on healing.
This is a great boost to chiropractic as Dr. Bernie Siegel, M.D. ‘s very philosophy of life and health stems from the chiropractic philosophy.
For years Dr. Siegel was a student of Bill Bane, D.C. a member of the Emissary of Light and a prominent Chiropractor from New Hampshire.
For over 100 years chiropractic emphasized tapping into the innate ability of the body to heal itself.
Chiropractic practice is designed to clear blockages, called subluxations, to the nervous system , the medium that interweaves the body and mind. Chiropractic promotes and supports life and health rather than treats and suppresses symptoms and disease.
At the heart of the practice of chiropractic is the teaching of its philosophy of life, health, healing and wellbeing.
Today, 100 years later, sick people are turning to self-healing, re-learning to trust their bodies and to have faith in the power that creates. Since this approach brings great results in the sick, why wait until we are sick to apply it? Why not keep ourselves well by learning to trust our Innate Intelligence now and making the shift today?
Do we have to wait until our children grow up to be diagnosed with a dreadful disease to turn them on to life and proper living?
This is the stand that chiropractic makes: Freeing life and promoting well-being throughout life. That is what true health care is, in opposition to sickness and disease care.
The shift from crisis, symptomatic care to proactive well-being care is becoming an economic necessity. The gain and reward is a richer more vibrant and abundant life.
As the old adage states: “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”.
