Wise words from 2300 years ago

Herophilus, a student of Hippocrates, wrote c. 300 B.C.E.:herophilus

“When health is absent, wisdom cannot reveal itself, art cannot become manifest, strength cannot be executed, wealth is useless and reason is powerless.”

Smart guy! He is known as the father of anatomy. There he was, a Greek physician in Alexandria, Egypt, 300 BCE, and he was able to differentiate afferent (sensory) nerves from efferent (motor) nerves.

Two things to consider, here.

First, everyone says “There’s nothing more important than health.” As you can realize from the above quote, this is even true on a broad societal basis, what we in Chiropractic refer to as The Big Vision of Chiropractic. Yet, after decades of third-party pay (insurance, government programs), a lot of people think that everything should be “covered.” They insist on this, even if what is covered is ineffective, ev en dangerous. I’ve seen many people get cut up, permanently damaged, from spinal surgery because it was covered. So are the subsequent surgeries they get, and the opioid medication that they will get addicted to. Health, like everything else that is of value to you, is worth spending time and money.

Secondly, they… the PMMG (Pharmaceutical-Medical-Media-Governmental) Complex, has conned you into calling Medicine “health care,” when it is truly disease care. Chiropractic, which allows your body to heal, naturally, from the Inside-out, is Health Care.
