A slip on a snowy sidewalk, in winter, that is a small thing. It happens to million.
A fall from a ladder, in summer, is a small thing. It happens to millions.
A slip or fall produces a subluxation. The subluxation is a small thing
The subluxation produces pressure on the nerve. That pressure is a small thing
The pressure cuts off the flow of mental impulses. That decreased flowing 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 that physical and mental welfare of a city.
Multiply that man by a million, and you shape the physical and mental destiny of a State.
Multiply that man by one hundred and thirty million, and you can forecast and prophesy the physical and mental status of a nation.
So the slip or fall, the subluxation, pressure, flow of mental impulses, and dis-ease are big enough to control the thoughts and actions of a nation.
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 the pressure upon the nerves. That is a small thing.
The released pressure, restores health to a man. That 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 one hundred and thirty million, and you have produced a healthy, wealthy, and better race for prosperity.
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.
The idea is the biggest one I know of.
