My first experience with chiropractic was at the age of 12. My parents were going to a chiropractor who recommended that they have their kid's spine's checked because spinal misalignments or subluxations can be inherited and run in the family. They learned from our chiropractor that these misalignments interfere with the nerves which exit from the spine and transmit messages from the brain to the body and from the body back to the brain.
If there is a breakdown in communication from the brain to the body or from the body to the brain then problems will develop. In my case, after a thorough evaluation, the chiropractor found that I had misalignments in a part of my spine that controlled the function of my pancreas and I also had weakness in muscles that were related to the function of the pancreas. With further testing he found that sugar was the cause of this weakness and by eliminating sugar from my diet my body would start to work better on it's own. Having had a family history of diabetes my folks took this advice seriously and took me off sugar.
That really was not what a 12 year old wanted to hear! After a few months of being off sugar my muscles got stronger and I began to feel an improvement in how my body worked and felt. I was always a "husky" kid (my mom's nice way of saying I was fat), and after cutting out sugar from my diet I dropped a lot of weight. Now that was something I could get excited about.
That was the defining moment in my life when I knew I wanted to be a chiropractor.
My doctor saved me from the potential of a lifetime of obesity, diabetes and who knows what else.
