Entropy can be described as a process in which order turns to dis-order over a period of time. I remember learning the process of entropy in 5th grade. I believe it was a core concept in science of the time, discussing how rivers change course over time, etc. I never thought I would use the concepts of entropy later on in life, however today I’d like us to think about entropy, and the human body.
A human body breaks down over time. Of course, I guess this isn’t a spoiler alert, however with all the trouble some go through to not look older, it is worth being said. In fact, we know that our time on this earth is finite. In the healthcare industry, entropy is simply what we are trying to delay, it’s our never ending battle. I use the word “delay”, because there is no preventing death, cheating death, or fooling the eventual outcome.
So, how do we delay something that is inevitable, and can it be delayed in the first place?
I say it absolutely can. In fact I have proof that deterioration in the spine can and will reverse itself, if given the proper care. So, with this being a fact, that the body can and does heal in this manner, what is actually CAUSING the healing process?
What is IT that is reversing entropy, causing the end process to be delayed, in a living thing?
It’s important to really think about this question. I’d rather not give you the answer right away. I guess call this a cliffhanger, and spend the next few days thinking of this all important question. It’s important, because it determines HOW you will treat your healthcare.

Until next time!
