“We chiropractors work with the subtle substance of the soul. We release the imprisoned impulse, the tiny rivulet of force, that eminates from the mind and flows over the nerves to cells and stirs them into life. We deal with the majestic power that transforms common food into living, loving, thinking clay; that robes the earth with beauty, and hues and scents the flowers with the flory of the air.
In the dim, dark, distant long ago, when the sun first bowed to the morning star, this power spoke and there was life; it quickened the slime of the sea and the dust of the earth and drove the cell to union with its fellows in countless living forms. Thru aeons of time it finned the fish and winged the bird and fanged the beast. Endlessly it worked, evolving its forms until it produced the crowning glory of them all. With tireless energy it blows the bubble of each individual life and then silently, relentlessly dissolves the form, and absorbs the spirit into itself again.
And yet you ask, “Can chiropractic cure appendicitis or the flu?” Have you more faith in a spoonful of medicine than in the power that animates the living world”.
