Dr. Dority on the 33 Royal Principles of Health:
Take Your Time

In this new series from Selene River Press, Dr. Michael Dority presents “The 33 Royal Principles of Health” to 
illustrate how the forces of universal intelligence guide and determine our existence. Based on the principles
 gathered in the 1927 classic, Chiropractic Textbook, by R.W. Stephenson, DC, PhC.

Principle #6 from the Chiropractic Text Book 1927 by R.W. Stephenson D.C. Ph.C  declares the principle concerning time, it states; “There is no process that does not require time”.

This reminds me of a story about two twin frogs living on a farm. This farm had lots of milk cows. The frogs saw these shinny metal buckets the farmer always carried around very carefully. They wondered what was in these shinny containers. So one day after the farmer set the buckets down the two frogs jumped with all their might up and into the bucket landing in the foam and froth of fresh milk. The first frog gulped and gagged and coughed struggling to keep its head above the milk. He said to the other frog, “I can’t stand this mess, I’m not going to make it out alive and he gave up and drowned. The second frog felt the same at first as he swam and kicked in the milk. The harder he tried at kicking and swimming to save himself he soon found that the milk was getting thickened and firmer until he was sitting up on a high and firm foundation of butter. He gathered once again enough strength for one last kick and hopped right up and out of the bucket from his now firm foundation. It took time for the milk to turn into solid butter so the frog could go free, but it was totally dependent on the unending kicking (work) action taken by the frog. This frog’s determination and work to survive was his foundation for his future life and health.

We humans are just like the frogs. One of us will say, “Wow, this is too hard or it will take to long, or I’m not seeing any progress”. Then we give up and loose control of our destiny. The other positive human will say, “Wow, what a great opportunity to learn from this situation, I’ll try this and this to learn what gets the best “RESULTS” so I can be healthy. The words of Admiral Farragut are as true today as during the Civil War, “Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead”. Full speed ahead to find the knowledge of the causes of health, it requires time, but the battle can and will be won. Healing requires time. Just as the opposite, sickness is expressed over time. You control your health in the “Bucket of Life”, step up and power up, full speed ahead in the battle for life and health.

Dr Scot Walker teaches in his Neuro Emotional Technique classes on the concept of “the vanishing twin”. The mother of our chiropractic founding father D.D. Palmer was one of a set of twins. D.D. Palmer stated in his writings that, “I came within one of not having a mother. My mother was one of a pair of twins, one of whom died.”

It is estimated that 78% of pregnancies start with two fetuses (or more) and end up with only one by about the fifth month of pregnancy.

So why might this occur? Have you ever been working on a project of some sort and just can’t seem to get the pieces to come together? Or maybe one or two of the parts are missing? You lost hope and sank to the bottom of your “bucket”. The puzzle pieces just weren’t coming together.

Our inborn Innate Intelligence that controls and regulates every process puts the puzzle pieces together in our body following conception. This Life Force of Universal Intelligence flows over our nerves to every cell in our body. There must be sufficient building materials in the foods we eat to create the vital components for a complete sperm and egg to grow to completion and then on to form the baby. The wisdom of our body (Innate Life Force) receives its energy from the foods we eat and this vital energy uses the nutrients, mixing and matching them, putting the puzzle of human form together, working and kicking without ceasing.  With enough building materials on hand in the form of nutrition full of organic protein, fats, vitamins, minerals, and amino acids, construction and maintenance of the developing baby are complete. You and I and our offspring now have our “lambano”. This Greek word means to take hold, to seize, to clutch, to grasp to literally take form in our existence of human flesh.

We live in a “frog kicking bucket” where we either die from the stress and or survive in the same stress. D.D. Palmer’s mother survived in her stress and her twin died in the same stress. The common denominator appears to be the environmental stressors one is surrounded by. The stress in the womb is multifaceted. It can be carried in the encoding of the father’s sperm DNA as well the mother’s egg DNA. The physical, mental/emotional and nutritional health of the mother will be passed to the baby.

The Innate wisdom given by the creator has provided all of us with a backup plan to confront these stressors. It is in the “least” that the survival plan is manifested and expressed. Lets look at those little fetal adrenal glands.

Adrenal formation, A: The celomic epithelium gives rise to adrenal tissue at 3-4 weeks DPC. (Means Days Past Coitum, or sex act).

B: Adrenal development is complete by end of 8th week of gestation. A majority of miscarriages occur from the 4th to 12th week of gestation.

C: Most rapid development of adrenal glands occurs in last 6 weeks of gestation.

D: At 7 month’s gestation the adrenal glands are equal in size to the fetal kidneys.

E: Fetal adrenal weight at 7 months on to birth is 15 to 20 times larger then the fetal kidney weight.

F: The fetal adrenal gland, primarily its cortex, is next to the brain and heart the most vascularized organ in the body of the baby.

G: Cortisol released from fetal adrenal glands functions to aid and help the mother during the stress of labor supporting and maintaining her contractile activity during and through labor.

H: Cortisol released from fetal adrenal glands regulates fetal and the newborn’s metabolism, immune response, and response to post birth environmental stressors. Conditions such as failure to thrive syndrome can be related to fetal adrenal weakness.

Cortisol prepares the body for stress by stabilizing membranes and increasing blood sugar. Stored amino acids (formed from proteins) are rapidly transported to the liver and converted into glucose, the fuel necessary for the production of energy. You need lots of energy to go through your labor.

To help pass the next nine months of your pregnancy and ensure that your labor progresses with greater ease, support you and your baby’s adrenal glands with Standard Process Cataplex C 4-6/day, Adrenal Dessicated 4/day, and Trace Minerals-B12 3/day. The adrenals need the vitamin C complex and the mineral copper for optimum health.

Maintain a diet high in natural proteins and fats to provide those amino acids for the little one inside of you to grow strong and complete.

Some things to think about:

  1. Remember, There is no process that does not require time.
  2. Seek out Chiropractic providers so your master control nervous system is in tiptop order to regulate gestation and labor.
  3. Stress helps us grow but seek wisdom along the way.
