Nutrition and Chiropractic Care, The Perfect Marriage

Chiropractic care helps balance out any dysfunction created in the spine and nervous system from undue stress.  The major undue stressors which affect chiropractic patients are physical stress, mental stress, chemical/toxic stress, and other environmental stress.  Too much stress causes a short circuit in the spine and surrounding nerves; this is similar to a blown fuse and somehow it has to get switched back on.  A major reason why the general population seeks out chiropractic care is because of this short circuit, which causes neck pain, back pain, headaches and other health problems.

Why do some people seem to have to go to the Chiropractor all of the time while others seem to feel great by just going once a month?  One reason may be the physical or mental stress of someone is so great that they come subluxated or have spinal and nerve dysfunction as often as once a week.  Another reason which makes more sense is that due to improper nutrition our bodies are unable to heal and repair optimally so we are not able to hold or keep are spinal adjustments for very long.  When the body does not have adequate nutrients and minerals; it cannot feed its organs and glands sufficiently. Nutrients and minerals are the fuel for organs and glands so this means the organs and glands cannot function at 100%.  This is a downward spiral ending up in severe organ dysfunction leading to a variety of different symptoms and conditions, one of them being the inadequate healing and repair of muscle and joints.

If the nervous system is the master controller of the body, and the organs and glands are not functioning optimally than it makes sense that the entire nervous system could be confused.  The nervous system is supposed to help control the organs and glands of the body and when it cannot it is possible that you can become subluxated or misaligned.  The fast food, unhealthy diets of Americans these days contribute to the worst health we have every seen in this country.  This could potentially explain why some people feel like they are out of alignment all of the time and they probably are. 

Chiropractic patients who are healthy and have good diets seem to be able to hold an adjustment for a longer period of time compared with an unhealthy patient.  Feeding the body with healthy nutrients and minerals supports all of the organs and glands that are involved in healing and repair of the body.  Any dysfunction of an organ or gland such as the heart or adrenal gland is enough to cause severe distress to the body, the spine and nervous system.  How many people out there have poor diets and therefore organ dysfunction which leads to a deterioration of their health. Most all chiropractic patients coming in for neck and back pain have other underlying health conditions that they may not think are affecting their aches and pains.

Two of the most common organs or glands to be overly tired because of both a poor diet and too much physical and emotional stress are the adrenal glands and thyroid gland.  Exhausted adrenals and thyroids can cause fatigue, headaches, weight gain, hair and skin problems, muscle and joint pains, and subluxations or spinal misalignment.  Over half of the American population is suffering with adrenal and thyroid gland problems, most of them taking strong medications just to manage the symptoms and not really take care of the underlying problem.  These glands are tired and worn out; they just need some good fuel to get them back on track, back to functioning the way they are supposed to.

A healthy diet is one of the best compliments to chiropractic care and allows your body to respond better and longer to chiropractic adjustments.  Feed your organs and glands the proper fuel they need and the body will reward you with a healthy spine and nervous system, it is that simple.  It is easy to see how spine and joint pains, neck and back aches can not only be caused by physical stress but also but long term nutritional deficiencies.  This is why for optimal health, to give the body the best chance to be energetic and vibrant, the combination of chiropractic and nutrition is a great marriage.
