Fight Or Flight
Fight or flight is and has always been a way that your body depends on functioning as a unit. Fight or flight is how your body utilizes two different types of nerve systems. These systems are set up and should be utilized in order for proper functioning. When your body is at rest, growth, relaxation (etc), you are utilizing your parasympathetic nerve system. When your body’s adrenal glands are stimulated and you starting pumping some “fighting juice”, tension, and signs and symptoms become apparent throughout your body. Your bodies fighting response (sympathetic) are turned on when a subluxation (misalignment of the spine) is present in your body. Your body’s fighting response is not initially to elicit pain, it is to elicit signs and symptoms! Fight or flight, the fight response is: high blood pressure, asthma, fevers, seizures, autism, colic, etc. Your body’s flight response is not to make you sound like your giving up, it is actually opposite of this. Your flight response (parasympathetic) is to establish growth, healing, and normal continual functioning of your body. Once your body is using both systems together. Too much flight is a bad thing!
Fight or flight is designed to be used together in harmony. Too much of something is a bad thing, too little of something is a bad thing when dealing with your body. Subluxation’s can allow your body to do this though, and can cause too much or too little. Restoring proper connection with chiropractic care is a way for fight or flight to work together. When your body is overcome by stress, you need to adapt and overcome. Chiropractic allows proper communication so your body can adapt and overcome, and get stronger from your condition! Proper nerve system harmony between these two systems means proper functioning as a unit! Have your nerves checked to establish the proper fight or flight unity.
