The spine is like a windmill generating electricity for the brain

According to Roger Sperry, a neuropsychologist, neurobiologist and Nobel laureate who won the 1981 Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine, when the spine is moving, it is like a windmill creating electricity.

The spine houses the spinal cord, and the movement of the spine send messages up to the brain which the brain responds to and sends messages down to the rest of the body telling it what to do, giving it life. It is imperative therefore the spine moves optimally. If there are any restrictions in the spine affecting the messages to and from the brain this significantly decreases the energy production to the brain. It is like the brain having a lack of nutrients.

Chiropractors are experts in assessing spinal movements and function and restoring loss of movement and function. And in doing so, are affecting people’s brains and ultimately their lives! This enhances the way the person sees or perceive the world, the way they function, their quality of life, their health, their relationships, their jobs! EVERYTHING.

Living to 100

The number of people living to the age of 100 is growing. The people that have reached the age of 100, when asked if they thought they would, said no.

A question then would be, if you knew you were going to live to 100, what would you do differently to look after your body to ensure that you are comfortable and still fit and able at the age of 100?

So whether you have symptoms or not, get your spine checked by a chiropractor! Make sure that it is moving optimally to ensure that you can function at your peak, and live your life to the fullest, for the very short time that you have on this earth!

Some powerful quotes from Roger Sperry

“Better than 90 percent of the energy output of the brain is used in relating the physical body in its gravitational field. The more mechanically distorted a person is, the less energy available for thinking, metabolism and healing.” 

Why is balance & symmetry important for your brain and health?

“90% of the stimulation and nutrition to the brain is generated by the movement of the spine.”
~Dr. Roger Sperry, neurobiologist and Nobel Laureate in Medicine

“What is needed to break the vicious spiral is a world-wide change in the attitudes, values, and social policy.  As Einstein put it, we need a substantially new manner of thinking if mankind is to survive.”
~Dr. Roger Sperry, neurobiologist and Nobel Laureate in Medicine
