~~A basic tenant of chiropractic is that the bodies health and the bodies ability to heal itself come from within the body. That is, there is an innate intelligence within us that knows exactly how to heal and regulate our bodies. Also, it can be said that as long as there is no interference to our mind and body we can live our lives to it's fullest potential. With this thinking in mind and that the body is self healing, if you pay attention you can pick out signs that your body is working to maintain or fix it's health. For example, if you have a fever, it's a sign that your body is healthy in that it has recognized a foreign invader, possibly foreign bacteria, and the bodies innate  intelligence automatically raises the body temperature to rid the body of the bacteria. Vomiting can be seen as the same thing. It's often counter productive to mute these innate responses as these responses are exactly what is needed to keep the body healthy or heal its self when sick. Finally, chiropractic works to maintain the bodies nerve system. The nerve system is the communication system within the body.  If the nerve system isn't working properly the bodies innate intelligence will be compromised and thus compromising the bodies ability to self regulate and heal. With this in mind, people should have  regular check-ups with a chiropractor to make sure that their nerve system is working as it should. Other way's to help the body maintain its ability to self heal is to maintain a healthful life style. Here, one should maintain proper physical and mental health by regularly exercising, consuming a healthful diet, and reducing stress (including environmental stress.)
