Dr. Palmer compared the human body's inner workings to an assembly line. Like an assembly line, the internal function of the body is brought into action by electrical power. The assembly line's electrical power comes from generators; your body's generator is the brainstem and brain. Each part of the body - each unit - adds some part to the completed, whole object (the body). All of the parts fit into one systematic scheme. Even though it begins as a bunch of seemingly unrelated parts, when assembled correctly, the parts turn into something greater.
With power, the mechanical assembly line's purpose is possible - to create a whole, complete automobile (or whatever it may be). The Henry Ford plants had generators that produced electricity that ran each unit, wherein power flowed from generators above to cables to the wires of each unit into the unit itself. Electrical energy is a prerequisite for that systematic scheme to operate normally. 100% electrical energy must reach all parts equally and without disruption to ensure the normal, finished product. As long as everything goes into its correct order and place at the correct time, then the finished product will be normal.
The human body is a factory with an assembly line for the purpose of creating an intelligent, thinking, sensing individual that possesses its own heating, cooling, maintenance and upkeep departments, locomotion (movement), reproduction, etc. Once a mother's body is prepared and the seed planted, then she incubates it and 270-280 days later - a new human, organ by organ and piece by piece after month and month, is created. The brainstem comes first, then the brain (the main components of the power plant) with nerves/wires that are systematically placed and divided throughout the developing body to supply power to parts below. An organic line is laid next - the mouth, throat, stomach, intestines, bowels, bladder and rectum (entrance to exit) - it's a series of tubes from entrance to exit / from above to below. Lateral feeders add to the structure - the heart, lungs, liver, spleen, kidneys, etc. A four way pump (heart and lungs) is added with circulating tubes that bring oxygen to and takes carbon dioxide away from all parts of the body. Heating and cooling fluids flow through the tubes (arteries, veins) to every tissue cell in the body. The arms and legs are added to allow for movement.
Once complete, the new and independent unit is ready for delivery from mom, at which point the switch is flipped and the independent energy begins flowing from above-down, inside-out sufficient to run its own power system.
If one unit in the assembly line receives less power, be it in the mechanical or the human, then it runs at reduced speed and efficiency, congesting the units behind it and paralyzing the units forward, thus affecting the entire plant ALL BECAUSE it lost power to keep it on par. If one unit breaks down, the product (as a whole) is reduced to less than normal/adequate.
Instead of treating the slowed down machine, the logical approach is to find and correct the cause of the power shortage, adjust it, and get it back to normal. This is what a mechanical engineer would do. The spinal engineer does the same. This is what Upper Cervical Care is all about. The difference between the machine and the human assembly lines is that the human has repair cells and reserves that easily take place of the worn out, defective parts. No matter the condition, tissue cells are ready and willing to make repairs at once in the proper place and the proper way. As long as the internal assembly line is running on full, normal power/energy, then - from above-down, inside-out - the repair cells are directed where to go, how to be placed, the quantity needed, such as we find in healed scars, fused bone fractures, cuts, abrasions, etc. It's no different internally than with these external, clearly visible examples.
The tissue centers are established in-utero and may lay dormant for years like, as Dr. Palmer described, a municipal fire department equipped with all needed to put out fires is built but not necessarily used until called upon months or even years later.
It's not cult thinking to understand the obvious - that the human body is an internal, self-sustaining, and self-healing assembly line. If you get that, then you can change your health, your family's health, your friend's health, and you can be a part of changing the way that America looks at health.
