Sustaining Your Daily Energy…Naturally
Energy, energy, energy. We have seen it all when it comes to quick fixes of “getting” your energy back. When energy deficits begin to affect our daily routine, we have a tendency to look for external sources of energy. The latest trends will attempt to entice you about gaining energy, e.g., caffeine pills, vitamin B shots, “natural” additive supplements and the list goes on and on. Instead of adding external sources, let’s think about what looking within the body will do…naturally.
Restoring Your Internal Structure
Gravity, whether you believe in it or not… exists. The spine is made up of skeletal bones and connective tissues (discs) that protect your most important system in the entire body, the central nerve system (CNS). When you look at the human figure from the front, the spine is supposed to be completely straight. When you look at the human figure from the side, there are supposed to be three distinct curves in the spine. The design and structure of the spine enables your body to combat gravity and function properly. For example, when you jump the spine acts as sort of a shock absorber for your body.
Subluxations can occur in the spinal column. A subluxation is a misalignment within the spine that irritates a nerve fiber and can create a chain reaction everywhere in the body. This can cause stress and undo tension. As a result of a subluxation, more energy will be consumed to maintain your center of gravity. The top source of energy consumption in the body is the musculoskeletal system. The CNS made the spine (skeletal system) which then requires muscles, tendons, ligaments and other connective tissue (musculoskeletal system) to maintain proper structure. Throw a subluxation into the mix and your muscles will begin to work OVER-TIME. The source of energy that is used internally to power contraction is adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP is not abundantly stored within the tissue cells of the body. So, when an existing subluxation remains uncorrected for an extended period of time, the muscles make unnecessary amounts of ATP. This in turn depletes your body’s overall ability to produce sustainable energy throughout the day. In fact, when your ATP stores are quickly depleted, your muscles will gather energy from other sources within your body. Overall, fatiguing your attempt to sustain an energy filled day.
Restoring your spine by removing subluxations will naturally increase your energy throughout the day by optimizing proper energy use. Chiropractic care focuses on life, health, healing and well-being…naturally.
