The Systems of Your Body: How Do They Work? What's in it for You

Stylized X-RayOccasionally we take that extra Danish, or chocolate bar, or glass of wine or beer and think, what the hell, it didn’t do me any harm the last time I went on a binge.

Have you ever noticed, that when you drive with old oil in your car, you get away with it for a while. If your bicycles’ break pads are worn down you have a few near misses before an accident. You are probably good, too good, at pushing things to the limit and getting away with it.  And so it most definitely is with our bodies.

Unless we have pain in some area of our bodies we tend to just keep going. Very often other vital warnings, such as tiredness, irritable moods, a small rash on the skin, a swelling here or there on the body, stiff joints etc., we tend to ignore many of these.

We have been educated with the idea that once pain is not present in the body or once pain has left the body we are good to go. This is very far from the full picture.

Pain: old French “to hurt”, to exert or strain oneself, also the physical feeling caused by disease or injury or something that hurts the body.

From the viewpoint of your nervous System, (this is your connection system from outside your body and within your body to your brain where information is received via the nerves at 168 miles per hour and solutions and directions are put back down a different set of nerves so that you can function at your best and stay healthy and have vitality), when pain receptors are stimulated by temperature, pressure, or chemicals, they release neurotransmitters, (special chemical messengers) within the cells at the point where your body is receiving the impact or difficulty.  These messages travel quickly to your brain where there are other pain receptors and between both sets of receptors they keep this alarm system going until something is done to handle the body.

And so you would be forgiven for putting a huge emphasis on pain.

However, just taking a drug to handle pain in many cases such as anti-inflammatory medicine, or aspirin, will not sort out the real cause of the problem.

Remember your body got an impact, or your internal organs were subjected to one Danish too many and the cause is still there. And if you are not willing to handle that cause and be alert to other indicators of imbalance in your body,  then you will end up handling symptoms for the rest of your life.

Obviously there are extreme cases where pain is needed to be handled directly. Recently I was at work on a busy Saturday at the Clinic . I had seen 7 clients and suddenly I got a severe pain in my left side. The physical Therapist checked me over and said it was not muscular , and suggested we go immediately to A&E, which we did.

There I got excellent professional help.  They did a blood test , a urine test and an ultrasound on the kidneys and all was well.  My symptoms diminished and they told me to return if needed.  I realized after a relapse that it may be a Lactose intolerance.  I went off all dairy and I have been pain free since.  However, in 2007 I had a food allergy/intolerance blood test and the result showed that I was lactose intolerant.  I had no apparent symptoms as I had no pain, so I ignored the result.  I suffered from bloating and tiredness and brain fog at the time and didn’t listen to my body.  Then it all came to a head recently with severe pain in my left colon.

Your body has a number of systems that work independent of each other and also work in relation to each other at the same time.

As a Spinologist, I deal with the skeletal system, which includes the skull, the spine, ribs, breast  bones, shoulders and hips. I adjust the spinal column of my clients regularly, so that the vertebrae are in the proper alignment to the other vertebrae nearest them.  Only the body knows this precise alignment and I carry out the wishes of the wisdom of the body.  My ability is to palpate the muscles nearest the spinal area and adjudicate which side of the vertebrae to put a small force on, so as to assist the body to realign itself.

Spinologist activity has nothing to do with pain. We simply adjust the spinal column regularly so as to help the body straighten out the nervous system. That’s our goal.

The nervous system has up to 7 trillion nerves in the body. It is the body’s electrical writing system. As you can imagine any slight interference of these sensitive nerves leads to a blockage.  This we call in Spinology an occlusion.  An occlusion leads to a blockage of the communication system between the body and brain and between the brain and body with devastating consequences.

The goal of Spinology is to promote the whole person by regular adjustments. Old emergency patterns stay in the body for years causing uncertainty and other unwanted feelings. Doing regular adjustments helps the body get back to where it wants to be.

Ones outlook and certainty in life increases.  There are levels of health and livingness that many people dream of but can be attained again once regular adjusting of the spinal area is done.


  1. Exercise regularly
  2. Watch what you eat and be willing to listen to your body in relation  to food.
  3. Have at least half an hour for your self each day.
  4. Get regular adjustments at our clinic.  You deserve the best chance for survival and regular adjustments of your spine give you that and more.
