Your spine has more impact on your health and function than any other area of your body. In fact, the spine and structure of the body have 90% of the connections to the brain and nervous system.
Roger Sperry, a Nobel Prize winner on brain research, said:
90% of the stimulation and nutrition to the brain is generated by movement of the spine.
So, the big question is… how is your spine moving? How was your range of motion last time we did you exam? How is the range of motion of your friends and family who are not getting adjusted?
Subluxation – The Most Devastating Interference to Your Nervous System
The spine is much more than just a structure that helps us stand more erect and protects the spinal cord. To live a maximized life it is important to take care of the “whole person” instead of the reductionist viewpoint of picking out just a diseased organ or part like the allopathic physicians practice.
It is about applying the 5 Essentials of Max Living and removing the interference to you getting to your maximum health potential. The most devastating interference to your nervous system and thus your health is subluxation!
Is Your Body Under Attack?
Vertebral subluxation creates a stress that causes an increased tone in the sympathetic nervous system. We now know that an increased sympathetic tone in the nervous system sets off a cascade of autonomic processes as if the body was being attacked. This increased tone leads to what we know to be the “fight or flight” or “stress” behavior physiology.
Here is the thing…it is a good response that helps you in the acute situation, but will kill you chronically. What I mean by that is in the short-term situation it is good; however if it stays there long term it will destroy the body.
The Destructive Effects of Stress Hormones
This increase in sympathetic tone increases stress hormones known as catecholamines (adrenaline and noradrenaline) and decreases relaxing hormones such as serotonin and relaxin. Like I said, this is good for a short time to help you fight or flee from a predator, but when it is sustained for a long duration it destroys.
These destructive effects include:
- Decreased immunity
- Decreased digestion
- Shutting down fertility
- Reduced focus
- Reduced attention
This state of physiology is not what any healthy human should experience for any sustained period.
This is just one of the many reasons we take subluxation so seriously in the office. If there is a misalignment in your spine that is interfering with the nervous system, it must be found and corrected as soon as possible. Then once that problem is corrected we can maintain your spinal and nervous system health for the rest of your life! The only way to detect subluxation is through exam and x-ray.
