1022 Atoms And 50-70 Billion Cells:

As you watch a sunset, you breath some atoms exhaled by each human who has ever watched a sunset.  As you read this article, you will breathe atoms breathed by Benjamin Franklin when he read the final draft of the Declaration of Independence for the first time.  A few deep breaths get you atoms from your mother giving birth, from yourself taking your first breaths, and from ... Ceasar's last breath (the common name of this observation).


Your breath is about a liter of air, and thus about 1022 atoms. The atmosphere is about 1044 atoms. The breath's atoms will be well mixed back into the atmosphere after something like 10 years. Then, any randomly selected atmospheric atom has about a 1022 chance (1022 / 1044) of being from your breath.


Suppose you take another breath, again of 1022atoms. You can expect something like one of them, on average, to be from your original breath.   The exact number will vary. It is not a direct hop from one breath to the next - the atom may have been breathed by others (or by yourself), in between the two breaths. 


Between 50 and 70 billion cells die each day due to apoptosis in the average human adult.  Apoptosis is the normal process of programmed cell death that occurs in our body.  Imagine what would happen and how big we’d be if we kept every cell our body created.


As you inhale the 1022 new atoms, what will they become?  Will the new 50-70 billion new cells that replace the cells you lost today be healthier and stronger or sicker and weaker?


Your body is constantly changing and the choices and actions you take impact you today and in the future.  The proper function of your body at any given moment is determined by how properly your nerve system is working and fully you are expressing the forces of your innate intelligence.


Your body requires a proper CONNECTION between your brain and your body to function properly.  The clearer this connection, the better functioning your body and mind will be.  The more disrupted this connection is, the more dysfunctional you will be.


Because your spine is intimately connected with your spinal cord and nerves, ANY loss of alignment or spinal function WILL interfere with your brain-body connection —ALWAYS WEAKENING your body and mind, and leaving you less than fully WHOLE.


The purpose of a Chiropractic adjustment is to restore better/normal alignment and function to your spine, which helps re-establish a clearer brain-body connection.  Doing this regularly throughout your life, helps your body and mind function normally.  This often results in a better healing capacity, increased flexibility, stronger immune system, better ability to handle stress without your body breaking down, less overall pain, less use of medication, etc.  But as important as those things are… they are just the tip of the iceberg!


Chiropractic has almost NOTHING to do with back pain, neck pain, headaches or symptoms!  It has everything to do with LIFE and how WELL you will LIVE!
