Nervous System and Chiropractic

     The body’s nervous system is amazing.  It receives, reads, interprets and responds to stimuli quickly and with specific signals that cause practically immediate responses.  Your body uses thousands of bits of information all at the same time, all throughout the body, and always maintains homeostasis.  The nervous system controls everything from digestion to metabolism to moving a muscle to heartbeat to reading a book . . . the list is endless.  It is rather mind-boggling when you think about it.  And the most amazing thing is, you don’t have to think about it at all – it does all this with no conscious awareness on your part.  You don’t even have to understand how it all happens, but you do need to understand how to support this vital system.  We have been talking about how important it is to have a healthy digestive system, the importance of the right raw ingredients for your body, as well as other natural ways to support your health.  But, if you have a breakdown of communication anywhere in your body, your health will be compromised.  The longer this miscommunication continues, the more significant your health issues will become.  Ensuring healthy communication through the nerves is vital to your health.

Think of it this way.  You have a well fed, well supplied army ready and able to do battle.  But their radio doesn’t work and they have no contact with the command center.  What do they do?  Who is in charge?  Who is evaluating the situation and giving instructions?  A lack of communication creates a state of chaos, where maybe nothing gets done, or they take their chances, or they do what they think is right and hope for the best.  Likewise, cells who can’t communicate properly with the brain, or each other, have no direction or may receive the wrong information.

Support your nervous system:

*Make sure you get these nutrients:  amino acids, essential fatty acids (Omega 3, Lecithin), B-complex, calcium and magnesium.

*Eliminate substances known as neurotoxins, which destroy nerve cells, such as MSG, any and all artificial sweeteners, many chemicals and food additives too numerous to list here.  Do your research, especially if you have a health condition, not just related to the nervous system, but any health condition, and if you are interested in prevention.

*Make sure your nervous system is not being physically challenged.  One way of doing that is through chiropractic care.

Chiropractic is not a new profession.  It began in 1895, although its roots go beyond that.  It is a non-medical, drug-free system of health care that focuses on correcting nerve interference.  Chiropractic care looks for misaligned vertebrae in the spine.  Misalignments can pinch the nerves or interfere with their ability to communicate.  Pinched nerves can happen anywhere.  Many things can cause nerve interference, like the birth process, childhood falls, accidents, bad posture, carrying heavy items, repetitive movements, emotional stress, poor nutrition/diet, or lifestyle activities.

If you have any difficulty with your health, even if you think it is not related to your spine or your nervous system, or if you are interested in preventive care, consider seeing a qualified chiropractic doctor.  Regular chiropractic care, starting in childhood, is the best way to ensure that your nervous system is able to send and receive all messages throughout your body.  There are many chiropractic techniques.  Find a chiropractic doctor whose approach and beliefs resonate with you.
