Chiropractic Teaches Us to Look Deeper at ...Digestive Health

[Yahoo Auburn Chiropractor 13021]  Chiropractic adjustments can do so much for health.  One example is perking up poor digestion.  Do you have a subluxation that interferes with the nerve function in the digestive tract?

What is a subluxation?  It means "partial dislocation," a non-complex term to describe a fixated spinal joint that   impairs nerve activity between the brain and body organs, muscles, blood vessels, etc.

Viscero-somato or Somato-vicero  (internal organ to structure or structure to internal organ....which came first the chicken or the egg)

A subluxation is part of a damaging process that weakens the immune system, so we need to take a closer look at how the body is functioning under the stresses of subluxations.  

Originates at an Organ
A subluxation could mean the stress begins at an organ and sends stress signals to the spine thus impacting brain responses and causing tight muscles because they share the same nerve root at the center of the body.  If the stress starts at an organ it likely stems from a poor lifestyle habit such as poor diet.

Originates at the Structure
A subluxation could also be originating at the spine from a trauma that eventually makes the nerves change how an organ functions. 

Digestion is a big topic in chiropractic because correcting one aspect isn't enough without correcting all aspects.   Adjustments alone don't work and dietary changes alone don't work.

If you haven't taken the Neuro-Digestive-Stress test in the office in the last 6 months, it's time to repeat it.  It is a hand written test that takes less than three minutes to complete.

When you retake your Neuro-Digestive-Stress test I will explain some important dietary issues that most people find confusing.  But I say it's time to clear it up and get people feeling better.

1) Meats, eggs and "Good" fats such as coconut oil, butter, lard, naturally occurring animal fats, etc. are the easiest foods to digest compared to carbs (plant foods).

2) Iron assimilation is entirely dependent on protein metabolism and not so much on iron tablets.

3) Fiber is the worst thing for digestion

I'll be ready to answer your questions.  See you at the table....the adjusting table.
