Achieving Normal
Heart Function
The terrible toll shown by sta
tistics testifies to the reasons for
increased activity to combat the
many heart conditions. This vital,
most indispensable organ of the
body receives less care and more
abuse than any other, with the
possible exception of the stomach.
When the heart stops functioning,
the entire body does likewise, and
life ceases.
Some heart disorders cannot be
corrected; others respond favor
ably to treatment. Conscious care
of the heart, and the realization
of its importance, should be a
basic health measure for every
body. Prevention is the best
“cure” for heart trouble. The nor
mal heart is the size of a closed
fist. There are four compartments
or chambers, and the heart’s func
tion is the same as a pump: It
iorces tne Diooa into tne arteries.
Like every other part of the hu
man body, it is controlled by the
nervous system. The nerve im
pulses to the heart determine
whether its beat is normal or ab
normal. It is here that chiroprac
tic care works to normalize the
function of the heart, for chiro
practic is a science basing its
premise on normal nerve function
which affects every organ and tis
sue of the body. Treatments re
store the nerve stimuli which the
heart must have to make it func
tion properly. When this nerve
energy is unobstructed, nature
and time repair the heart dam
age. Every type of heart symp
tom, even the “nervous heart,”
which can be detected by its sud
den “racing” and palpitations,
calls for a physical checkup. Chi
ropractic care can usually prevent
the development of heart disord
ers, since it stimulates normal
activity and assures greater
strength and endurance. To "get
along” with your heart, consult
your chiropractor and be assured
of better health.
