The Future of Health: A New House of Healing

By John Ohm

Medicine, for centuries, has delved deep into the cellular realm to decode the mysteries of health. By investigating the microscopic activities within our bodies, it has aimed to understand the effects of cellular behavior on overall well-being. Yet health, we know, is holistic. We can’t understand the cause of health (or disease) through cellular theory alone, separating the cell or the organ from the whole of biology. 

Chiropractic care, building out from the cellular theory of biology, has sought to emphasize the pivotal role of the nervous system, which governs and controls every cell through tone and vibration. As we stand on the brink of a new era in health and healing, there is a calling for an even broader framework, one that includes the profound influences of experiences and emotions mediated by the nervous system. 

The placebo and nocebo effects are obvious phenomena in this category, recognized in both clinical practice and daily life. The “placebo effect” demonstrates how positive experiences, like love, can enhance health, while the “nocebo effect” shows the detrimental impact of negative experiences, such as fear. These observations underscore a critical insight: the future of healthcare must comprehend these “mysterious effects” to fully understand the nature of health and healing.
