In order to understand the devastating effects of a Vertebral Subluxation and the Power of a Chiropractic Adjustment, you must understand adaptive physiology. When your body goes into a “Fight or Flight” response due to a stressor (bear jumping out at you, hearing about a tragedy, etc.), your body will respond accordingly.
What is Adaptive Physiology?
The first thing that happens is that your blood pressure, heart rate, blood clotting factors, blood fat, LDL cholesterol, insulin, and glucose go UP so you can adapt to your environment adequately. Your cell-mediated immune system weakens, as well as your sex hormone binding globulin resulting in a higher level of circulating sex hormones in your blood.
This leads to cancers, colds, influenza, and other infections. The #1 risk factor in determining whether or not you will get a site-specific cancer is by the amount of sex hormones you have in your blood.
Your body decreases serotonin which down regulates learning and up regulates anxiety and fear centers in brain so you can react to the stressor more effectively; however, this leads to increased anxiety, fear, depression, and learning and attention deficits.
This response is called adaptive physiology.
How Subluxation Causes You to Get Sick
Movement of the Spine creates stimulation of proprioceptors in the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and discs. Proprioception and mechanoreception are essential nutrients for balance and health of the brain and the entire mind and body. When a human has a Vertebral Subluxation, proprioception is diminished which is recognized by the body as a Stressor eliciting the stress response, putting the body into adaptive physiology.
If it is not removed it stays there chronically.
If you look at over 95% of chronic illnesses, they are all the result of chronic adaptive physiology due to a stressor:
- chronic pain
- heart disease
- decreased libido
- acid reflux
- auto-immune issues
- and more…
That is how Subluxation causes you to get sick and why is it so important to look to the spine for the cause of disease!The Power of a #Chiropractic Adjustment to Avoid Chronic Disease Click To Tweet
How Stress Weakens the Immune System
The immune system is made up of organs, structures and white blood cells whose job it is to identify and destroy disease causing organisms such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites and even the body’s own cells that have malfunctioned. The brain and nervous system controls & regulates the immune system both directly and indirectly. The direct effect is via the synapsing of neurons with white blood cells in lymphoid tissues, while the indirect effect is through blood-borne neurotransmitters and hormones, which activate receptors on the white blood cells surface.
Substantial research has clearly demonstrated that a wide range of stress can deplete immune system resources and adversely affect neurological and biological communication resulting in abnormal levels of B and T cells, decreased responsiveness of natural killer cells, and fewer IgA antibodies to be secreted in the saliva.
What does that mean to you?
It means that you are more likely to get “sick” because your body has a lower ability to fight off infection and your weakened immune system is overwhelmed.
That is why Subluxation is so dangerous and devastating to your health because it directly interferes with nervous system function. Does that mean that issues with your spine can cause you to get sick? The simple answer is, yes!
You Have the Power to Prevent Cancer
Every time I ask a group of people who has been affected by cancer every single person raises their hand. We all know the devastation that chronic and/or terminal disease can have on a family. I have seen the devastation in my own family and families close to me and I am not willing to accept that!
If you asked 100 people who have been affected by cancer if they could go back and do everything possible to prevent their disease 98 would say they would do whatever it takes. With cancer affecting 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women you are either building or killing cancer.
Over 1.65 million people will be diagnosed just this year and an astounding 560,000 + will die from this highly preventable disease. The good news is that there is an answer… you have to correct the cause of cancer to prevent and heal this disease. You will learn the solution at the “Beyond Awareness” health workshop this month!
What are Some Things You Can Do to Prevent Cancer?
- First we know that healthy cells need proper nerve supply, an environment rich with oxygen, slightly alkaline pH and free of toxins.
- Second, your immune system must be performing at the optimum potential to be killing the hundreds to thousands of cancer cells we all have in our bodies at all times!
- Third, the environment within your body must be in a state that is building healthy cells and not diseased cells.
How do you get there? There are 5 Essentials of health necessary to live a Max Living lifestyle.
How does cancer thrive?
Cancer cells do not need proper nerve supply, do not need oxygen, they thrive in an acidic and toxic environment and they feed on sugar.
- Cancer has an 8x more affinity for sugar than healthy cells. Sugar is a huge problem that can be overcome when you have the nutritional strategies you will learn at Beyond Awareness.
- If you are not exercising the right way your cells are not getting oxygen.
- If you have never had your spine checked by a Corrective Care Chiropractor, you do not know how your nervous system is functioning and how your body is healing.
The number 1 way we help so many people is because we specialize in correcting the spine and restoring the natural healing from within. Each and every one of you deserves a life free of disease and suffering, a quality of life that helps you fulfill your purpose. I know without a doubt that being at this event will get you one step closer to living that life and many steps further away from a deadly diagnosis! You and your family have to know the protocols and have the resources to take action on that knowledge.
