SUBLUXATIONS AND THEIR FAR-REACHING CONSEQUENCES
The harmful effects of chronic stress on our organism are now known. It bothers the soul, disturbs the mind and causes typical diseases of civilization such as hypertension, cardiovascular complaints and diabetes mellitus type 2. The depressive fatigue syndrome, often called “ burnout”, can also arise over time.
WHAT HAPPENS IN THE BODY DURING STRESS
Stress has a variety of negative effects on your overall health as it disturbs the balance in the central nervous system (CNS), the control center of your body.
In a healthy body, the sympathetic and the parasympathetic nervous system alternately control the autonomic nervous system.
When the sympathetic system is triggered it provides an increase in activity and performance, it regulates the “fight or flight” response, while the parasympathetic system allows the organism periods of rest and regeneration.
Domination of the sympathetic part of the nervous system causes continuous stress, the body is constantly in a high-performance mode, at all times.
Stress hormones such as cortisol and norepinephrine lead blood to the brain, heart and muscles, on the other side less blood is available for the digestive system, immune system and reproductive organs, the systems that are important for regeneration and general health of the body. The constant attempt by the nervous system to keep the body in an alerted state leads to various diseases and weakens the entire organism.
WHY SUBLUXATIONs TRIGGERS STRESS
In addition to known stress factors such as excessive work pressure, there are other, less known stress triggers.
As a physical factor, subluxations can cause permanent stress. Subluxations cause asymmetrical strain and distortion of tendons, ligaments, muscles and intervertebral discs. In order to enable the optimal upright posture of the human being, the nervous system strives to eliminate these asymmetries …it organizes compensations in other areas of the body, causing further subluxations, which in turn send further stress stimuli.
In turn, this permanent state of stress causes stress and pain tolerance to gradually decline.
CHIROPRACTIC STOPS THE STRESS
If the organism is flooded with negative signals, the parasympathetic nervous system cannot be active. The organism is nonstop in high performance mode.
Chiropractic adjustments eliminate subluxation, enabling the body to switch to relaxation, regeneration, digestion, enabling deep sleep and strengthening of the immune system.
When the natural balance of active and passive phases in life is restored, self-healing powers are awakened. Stress and pain tolerance can return to a normal level.
Adjusting your spine will replace the negative information flooding the brain with positive information. The brain is recalibrated, the release of chronic stress hormones can stop. Health and healing, a sense of overall wellbeing can take place…naturally, from the inside to the outside, without drugs and side effects.
