The Windsor Autopsies
Can an Unhealthy Spine Affect Internal Organs?
At the University of Pennsylvania, Dr. Henry Winsor conducted an experiment based on chiropractors who claimed that by adjusting the spine they could relieve stomach issues, ulcers, menstrual cramps, heart disease, thyroid conditions, kidney disease, constipation, lung and other diseases. In this experiment he dissected both human and animal cadavers to see if there was any relationship between any of the diseased internal organs discovered on autopsy and the vertebrae and nerves that went to the organs. Dr. Winsor dissected 75 human and 72 cat cadavers. He found nearly 100% correlation between minor curvatures of the vertebrae and disease of the internal organs.
All 20 cases with heart and pericardium conditions had the upper five thoracic vertebrae misaligned (T1-T5).
All 26 cases of lung disease had spinal misalignments in the upper thoracic area (T1-T5).
All 9 cases of stomach disease had spinal misalignments in the mid-thoracic area (T5-T9).
All 13 cases of liver disease had misalignments in the mid-thoracic area (T5-T9).
All five cases with gallstone disease had misalignments in the mid-thoracic area (T5-T9).
All three cases with pancreatic disease had misalignments in the mid-thoracic area (T5-T9).
All 11 cases with spleen diseases had misalignments in the mid-thoracic area (T5-T9).
All 17 cases with kidney diseases had misalignments in the lower-thoracic area (T10-T12).
