The 100 Year Old Man That Died at 78

This is an interesting story of a 100 year old man who died at 78. When he was conceived, just like you, 23 chromosomes from his mother and the 23 chromosomes from his father united to make him a unique, incredible human being with the innate potential to live an active, healthy, quality life to 100 years of age and beyond.   

   Unfortunately, he was injured during the birth process. Excessive pulling and twisting on his neck and his spine caused a vertebral subluxation, placing pressure on his spinal cord and nerves. Since there was no bruising that was visible on the outside of his body, the injury went unnoticed and the newborn went home from the hospital on time.  

Underneath the surface of his skin,…

…this injury caused a disruption of the nerve supply between the brain and the body and his internal communication signals became distorted. His stomach became sensitive to foods, and his first year of life was filled with numerous colds and ear infections that his parents and the pediatrician considered “normal”. He was given multiple doses of antibiotics and his symptoms came and went. Over the course of this first year, his underlying spinal injury was causing his bones to develop unevenly, his nerve supply to be compromised, and his Innate healing capacity to be altered.

During his toddler years,…

… he fell a lot through playing and experiencing his environment. This repetitive trauma to his spine caused additional areas in his spine to become imbalanced, causing more pressure on his nerves. While they were not enough to cause him a “backache”, the pressure was enough to cause his body to function abnormally. After all, research shows that nerve root compression can exist without pain and mild pressure can reduce nerve transmission.

As a child,…

… he became fidgety for unexplainable reasons which affected his concentration. His caregivers labeled him as hyperactive and asthmatic, since he also had occasional bouts of asthma. His parents didn’t even think about removing the pressure from the spine and restoring the normal nerve supply so that his body could express its true potential. Instead, they were scared into giving their child ADD drugs. This symptomatic treatment approach seemed to work for a while, but each time the medication wore off, their son became even more unbearable. The withdrawal symptoms became worse than the attention problem, and even more significant, the pressure on the nerves was still there.  

To make a long story short,…

…what could have been a long healthy life, ended as a short and sickly one. This pattern of treating symptoms rather than eliminating the cause continued throughout his lifetime. His body could never get centered. His spine and nervous system were never balanced. Rather than thriving and enjoying good health, his body deteriorated over time.

 The last decade of his life, he was unable to appreciate his family or travel far from home. He had to stop working and his savings dwindled while the cost of his medications and care rose.  He spent the last 5 years living a painful, deteriorating death, ending up in a nursing home instead of experiencing a quality of life that his body’s Innate Potential could have provided.   

The man’s story should not have ended like this…
