Do you experience stress? Do you know how stress affects your body? Do you know stress comes in multiple forms: physical or trauma, chemical and mental?
Stress is listed by the American Medical Association as the leading basic cause of more than 60% of all illness and disease. It is known to be the cause of many illnesses and symptoms ranging from high blood pressure, stroke, diabetes, anxiety, ADD or ADHD, digestive problems like Chron’s, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and acid reflux, immune deficiency, allergies, headaches, musculoskeletal disorders, fibromyalgia, weight gain, sexual dysfunction, insomnia, breathing problems and much more.
Stress can also lead to many addictions like smoking and alcohol and even lead to suicide.
Many people reach for different medications to fight many of these conditions and symptoms that result from stress. Unfortunately most don’t realize the drugs are just covering up the symptoms and resulting in other symptoms due to side effects. This is a vicious cycle currently used by most medical doctors in treating their patients.
The nervous system coordinates all functions of the body and when under stress, the body has a difficult time regulating the organs, tissues and cells of the body. The best method of correcting the problem is addressing the nervous system to bring it back to balance. This is what chiropractic does for you!
Chiropractors work with your nervous system because it is like a circuit breaker system through which the spinal cord and nerves send their messages. Messages from the brain go to all parts of your body via the spinal cord and at every level of your spine between the vertebra, nerves go to their destination either a muscle, organ or other tissue of the body. If the messages from the brain are uninterrupted, the body can handle stress more easily and function optimally to bring you natural health and wellness. But due to the different daily stresses we experience from birth til death, the spinal bones that protect the nervous system can move out of place therefore interfering with the nerve messages and causing dysfunction, disease and symptoms.
Chiropractors detect and correct the misalignments (subluxations) of the spine by adjusting the vertebra to remove the nerve irritation which helps release muscular tension, increase circulation and improve function of the body.
Everybody experiences stress! You have to learn to manage stress including exercise, proper nutrition, do activities you enjoy, meditate, get adequate sleep and most importantly get your spine checked and adjusted by a chiropractor. Don’t wait for symptoms like headaches, digestive problems, daily aches and pains, high blood pressure, weight gain or other issues to show up as the symptoms are the last sign to show up. Prevention and maintenance with chiropractic care helps keep stress at bay and your body functioning optimally to maintain your health and wellness so you can enjoy your family and normal daily activities.
