Misaligned Bones Affect Your Internal Organs

In 1921, 26 years after Chiropractic was first discovered, Dr. Henry Winsor, M.D. asked the question:How can chiropractors adjust one vertebra and relieve medical problems related to internal organs?Dr. Winsor dissected a total of 75 human and 22 cat cadavers in 3 studies to see if there was a relationship between any diseased internal organs and the bones of the spine associated with the nerves going to those organs. All of the diseased internal organs had misaligned bones interfering with their nerve supply!These studies show a direct correlation between spinal misalignments and diseased internal organs.  The Winsor Autopsy Studies are not saying that these spinal misalignments caused these diseases, rather they are saying that these diseased organs had vertebrae out of place putting pressure on their nerves.

I would suggest that these individuals would have been better off without those misalignments.  I am also suggesting you would be better off without similar misalignments.

The only way you can decrease the size and number of spinal misalignments is by getting your spine checked regularly by a Chiropractor.

Diseases examined in the study:

*Stomach Diseases
All 9 cases of stomach diseases had spinal misalignment in the mid thoracics (T5-T9).

*Lung Disease
All 26 cases of lung disease had spinal misalignments in the upper thoracics (T1-T4).

*Liver Disease
All 13 cases of liver disease had misalignments in the mid thoracics (T5-T9).

All 5 cases of gallstone disease had spinal misalignments in the mid thoracics (T5-T9).

All 3 cases with pancreas disease had spinal misalignments in the mid thoracics (T5-T9).

All 11 cases with spleen diseases had spinal misalignments in the mid thoracics (T5-T9).

All 17 cases with kidney disease were out of alignment in the lower thoracics (T10-T12).

*Prostate and Bladder Disease
All 8 cases with kidney, prostate and bladder disease had the lumbar vertebrae (L2-L3) misaligned.

The 2 cases with the uterine conditions had lumbar vertebra L2 misaligned.

*Heart Disease
All 20 cases with heart and pericardium conditions had the upper 5 thoracic vertebrae (T1-T5) misaligned.

Dr. Winsor’s results are published in The Medical Times, November 1921, and are found in any medical library.

Please share what you know about Chiropractic with your friends, family, and neighbors.  Everyone benefits when their body can communicate better with itself.
