Tackling Gut Problems From Within The Body
The Gut! Tackling gut problems from within the body is focused on decreasing internal inflammation that is causing symptoms to appear in people who have “gut problems.” What kind of gut problems? IBS, constipation, diverticulitis, reflux, etc etc. The list goes on and on when it comes to gut problems. More people become concerned with the symptom that they have and attempt to cover -up the signs they are producing besides addressing the actual concern. The brain – body connection is dysfunctional.
Remember that the central nervous system coordinates, controls, and makes everything in your entire body. The CNS does this via a network of cables called nerves. When a nerve becomes irritated in the spinal column due to instability from a subluxation, the nerve is not in normal ‘tone’. As a direct result of the nerve being irritated in the spinal column, the organs, cells, tissues, and glands that the nerve coordinates will become dysfunctional as well. How so? The spine is a direct extension from the brain. When a nerve is not in normal ‘tone’ and not sending the proper messages, the body in return will show symptoms from that subluxation. Think of it like a super highway that is under construction. Who honestly likes construction on a super highway? No one!
A study from the 2016 Gastroenterology journal suggests that the vagus nerve is extremely precious not only for homeostasis of a variety of organ systems, but also for the regulation of appetite, mood, and inflammation. Common gut conditions can be greatly influenced by the function of the vagus nerve. It’s all about the brain – body connection. Research confirms the importance of a well adjusted spine on the function of the vagus nerve. Optimal function begins and ends from within the body. Don’t treat symptoms. Chiropractic can get your digestive system working by focusing on the cause. A healthy lifestyle not only changes your body, it changes your attitude and your mood.
