Human Potential

The magnitude of human potential will never be fully understood.  It defies imagination, for imagination itself is but one small expression of the very potential it would seek to envision.  Certainly, human potential is multifaceted.  To even begin to appreciate it, one would have to consider such manifestations as:

  • The ability to adapt to an ever-changing environment, agreed by most biologists to be the essence of life itself.
  • The ability to convert food into walking talking flesh and blood.
  • The ability to manufacture and balance in perfect quantity and quality; insulin, cortisone, adrenaline, and every other hormone, enzyme and chemical needed for normal life.
  • The ability to reproduce.
  • The ability to resist and prevent disease.
  • The ability to recover from disease and to repair injury.
  • The ability to engage in creative thought and analysis.
  • The ability to compose music, prose, and poetry.
  • The ability to draw, paint, and sculpt.
  • The ability to adapt to emotional stress and to develop appropriate responses.
  • The ability to remember some things while relegating others to the ‘inactive’ file.
  • The ability to maintain balance and to simultaneously coordinate a multitude of different muscular skill for work and play.
  • The ability to study and learn.
  • The ability to add, subtract, multiply and divide.
  • The ability to solve problems and to organize.
  • The ability to make decisions.
  • The ability to love and trust.
  • The ability to accept and respond to the spoken and unspoken needs of others and to share the responsibility for the shaping of our world.
  • The ability to shut off conscious thought, to relax and mediate and sleep.

These are but a few of the tangible and intangible expressions of human potential.  What a tragedy it is for any part of this potential to be unfulfilled.

In a society committed to specialization, we tend to lose sight of the fact that all of these potentials must interact together in harmony if any are to reach their full expression.  The human being is not a collection of dis-related parts, but an integrated whole with each facet dependent on every other.

The communication and control system (brain, spinal cord, nerves, and chemical messengers) coordinate and run the entire human being.  Damage to this control system must inevitably result in failure of the parts to interact properly.  This in turn, causes a lessening of the ability to express full potential in both tangible and intangible manifestations.

Chiropractors are committed to unleashing full potential by maintaining the integrity of the body’s control and communication system – The Nerve System.
