The brain is the light and the atlas is the dimmer switch. Do you know what happens when a dimmer switch is low, the brightness of the light decreases. When the atlas is out of position the messages from the brain are not transmitted properly to every cell in your body. When the atlas is in its proper position then the light is turned on and the brain is able to transmit all the messages it needs properly to every single cell and thereby allowing a more optimum experience of health.
