Following a stroke shortly after the birth of my brother, my mother sought medical help. Before the stroke her hobbies included sports such as skiing and tennis. For months following the trauma of the birth, she was partially paralyzed. A series of "modern" medical treatments was unsuccessful in relieving her neuromuscular pain, but finally she learned about the benefits of chiropractic care.
This book tells the moving story of her successful search for a life without pain. The book is about the past, present, and future of the world's largest natural health care profession in the U.S. It explains how correcting nerve interference relieved her of 12 years of back pain, chronic bronchitis, and insomnia. As a result she also avoided a hysterectomy.
She says, "I wrote this book because I believe from my own experience and research that a chiropractic adjustment, done properly, is so much more significant than patients realize, and also much more profound than even many chiropractors think. A precise adjustment has such a positive effect on enhancing the communication between the central nervous system and every cell in the body. With the many different techniques in chiropractic, there is a need to understand and respect the differences in the various methods used. It was the effect of these differences that influenced me to continue under chiropractic care." When my mother's good health returned she was inspired to share her story.
