At CHA, we realize that part of the solution to today's health care crisis revolves around a change in our thinking about disease and our ability as practitioners to stop disease. The body fixes the body! The Comprehensive Health Association realizes that our therapies or interventive measures must work with the body to heal itself and not prevent body systems from doing their job. If any therapy is necessary that may burden the body, we must help it deal with the trauma and insult of our treatment and support it through its crisis.
The complexity of the human body is truly amazing. The body is composed of trillions of cells, millions of which are replaced, repaired or eliminated every day. Each cell has a specific function and is intricately connected together with lines of information and communication. Yet each has the power to act independently and perform a specific function. In addition, most cells can adapt to a constantly changing environment, replicate and repair, and protect and defend the entire whole that is the human organism. And all this started with the combination of just two cells. Life is truly a miracle!
Throughout time, scientists and healers have struggled with the questions of what causes the breakdown (disease) of this miraculous system, and what can be done to maintain the harmony and balance so that each body function is optimally maintained (health). Today our society is facing difficult health challenges with the rise of degenerative, neurological, cancer, and heart diseases. What goes wrong to prevent the system from functioning as it was designed to do by our Creator; and what makes it degenerate and age? Likewise, what is health and what can be done to preserve it as well as keep the organism functioning for as long as its full biological potential?
This miraculous body that God has created seems to have an almost limitless power to defend itself, repair and regenerate, and continue its precious life free of disease. As health practitioners in the 21st century, we must see ourselves as only its support mechanism and not assume that we are fighting the battle for the body. Therefore, any treatment rendered or drug prescribed must work with the body and not fight it or suppress its own ability to defend, repair, and regenerate.
