High Blood Pressure Controlled By…

It is Valentine’s Day and yes we are going to talk about high blood pressure!  We assume we have high blood pressure and we have to immediately blame our faulty heart.  The problem lies solely in the heart and nothing else is attributed to this failure.  Now, granted if you’re going out on a date with someone tonight you might have some high blood pressure or you just might be “nerve-es”.  Back to reality here.  Being chiropractors we are always and constantly checking for proper nerve function. Proper nerve function and communication is essential for a healthy life.  The vagus nerve just so happens to communicate to our heart.  Communication from your brain to your heart is via the vagus nerve.  If communication is inhibited then your heart will begin to suffer.  Guess one way how your heart lets you know you have a lack of communication?  High blood pressure!

There is a bone at the top of the neck called the Atlas vertebrae.  If the atlas bone decides to move and apply pressure to your vagus nerve, that results in a loss of communication.  With that loss of communication the organ the nerve is supposed to control suffers.  That special organ we are talking about due to Valentine’s Day is the heart!  High blood pressure is controlled and regulated by your master control system.  If you have a bad experience in life you have to find your nerve system at fault.  To make sure your body is adapting and functioning the way you want it to, have your nerves checked!  Now, are we neglecting the healthy eating and proper exercise components of this?  Not at all.  Proper exercise and nutrition go hand in hand for a healthy functioning nerve system as well as a healthy functioning cardiovascular system.  We are stating that the most important influence on your body to make sure you adapt and overcome is having a healthy functioning nerve system.  Have your nerves checked.  Happy Valentine’s Day.
