Your Amazing Body

Once upon a time, not so very long ago, life was simpler. People didn’t have the ability to connect with each other, or the extraordinary amount of things and information as they do today. Even the holidays were simpler. You rarely saw houses lit up like the electric company. In fact, people would travel into cities to see department store holiday displays!! These days, people start celebrating “the holidays” right after Halloween and do more and more in terms of decorating and celebrating.

Your AMAZING body isn’t like that at all. Your body, while it can adapt to changing environments, is very predictable. Day after day and year after year, it does the same things using the same organs and the same processes as it always did. Whether you’re 5 or 50, you digest food and eliminate waste in pretty much the same way. Whether you’re 6 or 60, your heart circulates blood throughout your AMAZING body in a very similar way. Whether you’re 7 or 70, all your AMAZING body parts are connected to and directed by your brain. More than that, your body is extremely efficient, and it doesn’t waste energy on unimportant matters.

The very structure of your body’s organs is designed for efficiency. For example, your lungs consist of an unbelievably vast surface area for maximum gas exchange in a rather small area. The bottom of your windpipe (also known as your trachea) divides into two tubes (known as bronchi) which connect to your left and right lung. Inside your lungs the bronchi divide into even smaller tubes (called bronchioles). At the 

end of the bronchioles are tiny air sacs (called alveoli) where the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide actually takes place. Each person has hundreds of millions of alveoli in their lungs!!! Now that’s AMAZING!! How could hundreds of millions of anything fit into something that’s only about 9 inches long and weighs only about 2 pounds?? That’s the incredible design of your AMAZING body!!!

And that’s just one example of how the structure of your organs demonstrates AMAZING intelligent design! Your intestines have extensive surface folds for maximum nutrient absorption in minimal space. The heart’s four-chambered structure allows for efficient separation of oxygenated and deoxygenated blood. Your nerve system efficiently processes information and coordinates responses. However, it has reflex arcs within it that allow for rapid, involuntary response without conscious thought. For example, when you put your hand on a hot stove, you immediately (involuntarily) pull back without even thinking about it.

And this is how our bodies have always worked, both in the olden days and today!! Whether you’re 7 or 70, all your AMAZING body parts are connected to and directed by your brain. So you need an optimally functioning nerve system for your body to work at its best. Your family chiropractor can help you with that. He or she will check your spine for vertebral subluxation and adjust you when necessary. This will ensure that all your body parts are working as efficiently as possible, so you can thoroughly enjoy the holidays no matter what you do or when you start. AMAZING!!!
