  • EDUCATED MEN have been studying male and female, functionally and physiologically, for 5,000 years. What kind of a male and female would this educated male and female build if possible? Fortunately, he still has nothing to do with reproduction, but he does try to dictate his terms upon production after reproduced. He would attempt to introduce and inject his needless experimental external artificial theories he promulgates and constantly changes from year to year. He would scheme him without God, without Innate Intelligence; psychiatrists would permit a sub-conscious mind to a limited degree; he would be without tonsils, appendix, and other “useless organs” which his education taught him man does better without than with. In spite of this, God and Innate have kept on building babies the same way, the same pattern, regardless of creed, color or country, for millions of years. The blueprint and pattern of Intelligence has not changed in spite of man’s educated ignorance.

  • A slip on the snowy sidewalk in winter is a small thing. It happens to millions.
    A fall from a ladder in the summer is a small thing. It also happens to millions.
    The slip or fall produces a subluxation. The subluxation is a small thing.
    The subluxation produces pressure on a nerve. That pressure is a small thing.
    That decreased flowing produces a dis-eased body and brain. That is a big thing to that man.
    Multiply that sick man by a thousand, and you control the physical and mental welfare of a city.
    Multiply that man by one hundred thirty million, and you forecast and can prophesy the physical and mental status of a nation.

    So the slip or fall, the subluxation, pressure, flow of mental images and dis-ease are big enough to control the thoughts and actions of a nation.

    Now comes a man. And one man is a small thing.
    This man gives an adjustment. The adjustment is a small thing.
    The adjustment replaces the subluxation. That is a small thing.
    The adjusted subluxation releases pressure upon nerves. That is a small thing.
    The released pressure restores health to a man. This is a big thing to that man.

    Multiply that well man by a thousand, and you step up the physical and mental welfare of a city.
    Multiply that well man by a million, and you increase the efficiency of a state.
    Multiply that well man by a hundred thirty million, and you have produced a healthy, wealthy, and better race for posterity.

    So, the adjustment of the subluxation to release pressure upon nerves, to restore mental impulse flow, to restore health, is big enough to rebuild the thoughts and actions of the world.

    The idea that knows the cause, that can correct the cause of dis-ease, is one of the biggest ideas known. Without it, nations fall; with it, nations rise.

    This idea is the biggest I know of.
