HOW DOES CHIROPRACTIC HELP WITH DIGESTIVE ISSUES?
Misalignment of the spine can create a neurological shutdown preventing our basic functions from firing, a common example is spinal trauma that lends to constipation. From Chron’s disease to irritable bowel syndrome, gentle chiropractic adjustments have been shown in multiple studies to fix spinal alignment, thus, leading to alleviation of bowel discomfort.
Constipation is often misdiagnosed, and laxatives, which can cause serotonin issues as well as cause brain harm, are given as a “mild” over the counter treatment. This is a dangerous course of action when the root of the problem lies in something often easily treated through chiropractic.
In addition, chiropractic treatment can heighten the parasympathetic system which lowers cortisol. Cortisol is our stress hormone that is responsible for our “flight fight” responses. As cortisol rises, blood glucose in turn rises providing energy for our systems in a time of increased reaction need and stress. However, high levels of glucose feed pathogenic parasites and bacteria creating potential SIBO, GERDS and bloating in the intestines. Chiropractic adjustments helps find a balance in our cortisol when we have the inability to regulate our own cortisol levels, also known as Stress Syndrome.
