The Chirpopractic Principles
Chiropractic has many basic principles
upon which all its philosophy, art, and science is based. Those listed here are some of the most important. They
have guided the profession since its earliest development. Some of them are almost universally accepted. Others are
just beginning to find acceptance with other sciences. These principles follow a simple progression of deductive
logic. If you accept the major premise, the other principles fall into place almost automatically.
The Major Premise
A Universal Intelligence is in all
matter and continually gives it all its properties and actions, thus maintaining it in existence.
The Secondary Principles
The expression of this Intelligence through matter is the chiropractic
meaning of life.
Life is a Triune having three necessary united factors, namely,
Intelligence, Force, and Matter.
In order to have 100% Life, there must be 100% Intelligence, 100% Force,
and 100% Matter.
A living thing has an Inborn Intelligence within its body, called Innate
The mission of the Innate Intelligence is to maintain the material of the
body in active organization.
There is 100% of Innate Intelligence in every living thing, the required
amount, proportional to its organization. The amount of force created by Intelligence is always
The function of Innate Intelligence is to adapt universal forces and
matter for use in the body, so that all parts of the body will have coordinated action for mutual
Innate Intelligence adapts forces and matter for the body, but is limited
by the limitations of matter. The forces of Innate Intelligence will never injure or destroy the
structures in which they work.
The forces of Innate Intelligence operate through or over the nervous
system in animal bodies.
There can be interference with the transmission of Innate Forces.
