Dr. Henry Winsor, at the University of Pennsylvania, conducted an experiment based on claims from chiropractors that adjusting the vertebrae could relieve stomach trouble, ulcers, menstrual cramps, thyroid conditions, kidney disease, constipation, heart disease, lung and other diseases. In his experiment he dissected both animal and human cadavers to see if any relationship between their diseased organs and misalignments to the nerves from specific spinal levels existed. Dr. Winsor dissected 75 human and 72 cat cadavers. He found almost 100% correlation between misalignments of the specific vertebrae and the associated diseased internal organ.
All 26 cases of lung disease had spinal misalignments in the upper thoracic area.
All 9 cases of stomach disease had spinal misalignment in the mid-thoracic (T5-T9) area.
All 13 cases of liver disease had misalignments in the mid-thoracic area (T5-T9).
All 5 cases with gallstone disease had spinal misalignments in the mid-thoracic area (T5-T9).
All 3 cases with pancreas disease had spinal misalignments in the mid-thoracic area (T5-T9).
All 17 cases with kidney disease had spinal misalignments in the lower thoracic area (T10-T12)
Prostate and Bladder Disease
All 8 cases of prostate disease had lumbar vertebra misaligned.
2 cases with uterine conditions had second lumbar misalignments.
