Making a Connection: Nutrition and Chiropractic’s
The relationship between chiropractic’s and proper nutrition is strong and many times overlooked. In unity, you are enabling your body to function like a fortress that it is, a self-healing machine when given the proper environment, essentially being the ultimate health insurance plan!
The nervous system is the body’s inner computer system creating communication throughout the body. The nerves that transport these signals is located within your spinal column. If there is a malfunction or disruption your body is unable to effectively send messages and coordinate proper innate response. Chiropractic care in collaboration with a proper nutrition plan is key to ensuring optimal body function.
Chiropractic adjustments realign the spine, aiding the communication with the nervous system and the signals it is able to send out. Subluxation is misalignment of the vertabrae of the spine and considered a stress response. When this happens muscles go into spasm, spinal bones become stiff and adjacent nerves are choked or chafed. This interferes with the control and regulation of your body. Distorted nerve communications can be an underlying cause of many health problems. For example, your digestion is strongly impacted by the signals sent from your central nervous system. The gut is responsible for digestion and assimilation, if there is a disruption within this system, your body is unable to maximize the absorption of nutrients, therefore creating imbalance within the body.
When proper nutrition is lacking it can affect your body’s ability to do things like, repair muscle, muscle density, functionality of your organs cells, and so much more. When you eat to nourish your body in conjunction with chiropractic care, you increase your chances of successful treatment. Whole food plant based nutrition increases your overall health including the health of your nerves, connective tissues and muscles. When the nerve pathways are fully open and subluxations are eliminated your body can absorb the nutrients needed to function and prevent disease and malfunction, the information your body needs to get out reaches its destination and is able to imply a correct response. Nutrition and Chiropractics share the same view of preventative care and healing the whole body, directing attention to overall well-being and function.
When considering your whole body health be sure to include both chiropractics and nutrition counseling so you can feel and function in the very best way!
