Could there be a drug-free approach to help allergy sufferers live a better life? Chiropractic care is here to save you from your allergies and prevent serious reactions.
Hello everyone, Dr. Bob here! Now that the weather is about to turn and bring in cooler weather and beautiful foliage, that also means the return of terrible seasonal allergies for a lot of people. Following in the footsteps of our last few blogs, we are going to continue talking about how preventing subluxations and keeping the connection from your brain to your body healthy can benefit your health in more ways than you would think. To the surprise of many, regular visits to your chiropractor can reduce or eliminate your seasonal and year-round allergies in a safer and drug-free way!
Allergies are the most common cause of chronic illness and at least 40% of people suffer from at least one allergic condition. With the environment changing and heading towards unhealthy and unknown times, researchers are warning that the number of allergy sufferers is going to rise. This will lead to bad quality of life, lower productivity, and a huge boom in medical costs. But where does your chiropractor fit into this?
We have talked in previous blogs about how everything in your body is connected. Your brain is connected to your nervous system, the immune system, and all of your systems that keep you functioning. Anytime those connections are compromised it leads to your body not functioning at a full 100% and that means you are not as healthy as you could or should be. When you are operating at a lower rate, your body becomes more susceptible to these allergy attacks. Allergies cause a huge inflammatory response in your system. Having any part of your body inflamed can disturb the flow of messages between your brain and your body, causing it to function at a lower rate. Stress also plays a huge role in your allergies. Allergy reactions and stress provoke similar inflammatory responses. Stress also kills your cortisol hormone which if depleted allows your allergic reactions to become more severe.
But adding chiropractic care into your allergy-fighting routine can help you in so many ways!
The brain is an amazing thing, and it does a wonderful job of keeping our bodies healthy and running properly. Having regular chiropractic care gives it a rest once in a while and allows it to power up. It's simple, a spinal adjustment is the first step to a healthy immune system, and it can be done drug-free. It is very important to have regular adjustments to keep up your optimal health and keep your spine aligned. This will help keep your allergies and their reaction at bay. Come on in and visit us here at the office, and we will be happy to discuss this with you and help you get prepared for your next allergy season!
This very common term can be more dangerous than drinking and driving, and I'm here today to prove why that is!
Hello everyone, Dr. Bob here with Lowcountry Chiropractic. As has been our trend over the last few blogs, we are going to talk about something a little different.
We all know that if you've been drinking and you get behind the wheel to drive you run the risk of getting arrested for a DWI or DUI. I am going to make the case to you today that driving while subluxated is even more dangerous than driving while intoxicated. (My apologies to the Local Police! I hope that doesn't get me in trouble!) So today, I am going to explain this term and how to not drive subluxated, which we don't want anyone to do ever!
The foundation of chiropractic care is that we remove subluxations of the spine. Subluxation of the spine is when you have a vertebra in your back that has misaligned due to some trauma and has started to irritate a spinal nerve. Spinal nerves are the lifeline of your body - which connects your brain to your body and your body to your brain. Subluxations are bad! We can say that someone who has subluxations in their back is subluxated.
So why is this so dangerous? The brain controls every function of your body and every system of your body, like your immune, digestive, respiratory, endocrine, circulatory, you name it! So, every single function of your body is regulated by the brain and the nerve system which is the spinal cord and the nerves that connect the brain to the body. The brain makes all the decisions, sends these messages down the spinal cord to the body, and the body does the work the brain has told it to do. Then the nerves take the information back to the brain so it can make the next best decision on what to do next!
Health is defined as a situation where your body is working at 100% and 100% of the time. When you have a subluxation and that nerve gets irritated and those messages aren't getting from the brain to the body and then from the body to the brain you aren't as healthy as you could or should be. Things in your body are going to break down, you might get pain out of it or you might not. You might have sinus issues, you might get headaches, you might have trouble sleeping at night, you might have a loss or a lack of energy, you might lose focus and not be able to concentrate, and that's where driving subluxated can really affect your driving ability!
It can affect your digestion, it can cause acid reflux, sciatica, diabetes, and high blood pressure. All of these conditions are related to a body that is not functioning as it should be.
So what a chiropractor does is remove the subluxations from your back with our hands. We train the spine to stay in place so it doesn't get subluxated and so you don't stay subluxated. This way you can feel comfortable getting into your car after a long hard day at work and feel like you're NOT going to drive off the road because you're not driving subluxated. You're not going to be confused or forget how to get home because your brain is all scrambled up.
So essentially this is just to say that Chiropractic Care is essential to your health. Without it, no matter how well you eat, exercise, and live a healthy life, if you are a subluxated individual, you aren't going to be as healthy as you should be. You are not going to have as much energy, you are not going to sleep well, and you're not going to be a great asset to others as you could be!
This is my way of saying, please don't get behind the wheel subluxated. Go get checked by a chiropractor on a regular basis who will remove the subluxations and allow you to live, work, and act in a more responsible and healthy state!
I hope this helps! All of you out there who are subluxated, which is 100% of you if you don't see a chiropractor, need to come see me and we will remove the subluxations from your spine!
I hope to see you soon. I hope you have a great day and be well!
