Vitalism is an idea that suggests that a field or intelligence exists around and inside of you that organises you and works to keep you alive;
It is this field which ‘makes’ you alive and differentiates you from something inanimate or “dead”. It is this intelligence that ‘leaves’ us when we die!
Here at Noosa Junction Chiropractic, we (and many chiropractors) call it:
your ‘Innate’, or Inborn Intelligence.
It is that personalised ‘something’ derived from the greater ‘field’ of our universe that works to keep you in a state of growth and healing; it leads TOWARD more organisation (syntropy) – and it opposes nature’s typical forces that lead toward breakdown of organisation (disorganisation/chaos), break-down (decay) into ‘smaller’ parts and loss of information (entropy).
In the human context of OUR lives and our health we can easily accept the simple and undeniable idea that our bodies (and mind) are self-healing, self-regulating and self-coorindating. These functions are ONLY at their best (or able to occur) when our requirements for an ideal life are being met.
