A recent article called “When the Children Cry,” discussed the detrimental effects of mind altering medication on our children and how this has increased the number of school shootings, ultimately leading to the unnecessary loss of innocent life. The question is: How can long term chiropractic care help?
In order to understand how chiropractic care can help first you must understand what it is that a Chiropractor does. The short explanation is that a Chiropractor looks at the spine for the cause of disease and dysfunction in the body. The brain and spinal cord control every function inside of your body and misalignment(s) of the spine can put pressure on spinal nerves or on the spinal cord itself. When this happens the vital information from your brain that controls every function is not able to properly communicate with the body and vice versa.
When we tell people about misalignments (subluxation) in the spine one, of the questions that we commonly get is, ” when and how did this happen?” The answer to that question is always a difficult one, because the truth is, I could not possibly know every trauma or all of the stress that a person has been under in the days, weeks, months years or decades prior to coming into my office. However, what I do tell everyone is that subluxation is caused by some sort of trauma and can start as early as birth. In fact, the birthing process can be one of the most detrimental and traumatic experiences that someone will ever endure. Most people do not know this but it takes approximately 60-100 lbs of force for a physician to forcefully extract a child from the birth cannel. This is another reason why we advocate exploring the possibility of natural birth and Chiropractic adjustments directly following for the mother and child directly following the delivery).
As we said before These misalignments or subluxations cause interference in your nerve system (Brain and spinal cord) not allowing for 100% communication between the brain and the body. What we now know is that this breakdown in communication often times is the fundamental underlying cause of nearly all of our patients heath problems.
Now, getting back to how this plays a role in mental disorders. I know that you are probably wondering, how is it possible for one to have Depression or other Mental Disorders from misaligned bones in your spine? Well, what you need to do is to think of the the top bone in the neck as the gate keeper between your brain and the rest of your body. If that bone gets torqued or rotated out of position it will cause an interference to the energy being sent down to the body (often called mental impulses). This “dam” like effect causes the back up of energy into the brain causing “brain congestion”. At the same time these misalignments will starve the body from proper function, resulting not only in mental disorders but an array of other symptoms and conditions like pain, digestive problems, allergies, etc.. So it is a logical conclusion that if a chiropractor can find these misalignment’s, reduce them, and allow for proper flow of energy from the brain to the body then these issues will resolve.
Its not a miracle that the founder of Chiropractic analyzed hundreds of mentally ill people in the “Clearview Sanitarium” (A mental Health Hospital) and without the use of mind altering drugs, surgery or therapy allowed people to walk away free from all ailments. It’s not a miracle that a group of trained chiropractors can go to a country on a mission trip, adjust tens of thousands of people and and witness not only an improvement in the physical health of the population but also watch the crime rate reduce in the years to come. Chiropractors free humans from sickness and disease by specifically removing deadly subluxations or misalignments in the spine. This allows you to be the best you that you can be ! No other profession does this.
In the late 90’s my only living grandmother, who up in until this point in her life was a healthy health woman, was walking from her garage to the back door. As she put her foot on the step leading into her house she quickly find out that it was covered in pure ice. Unfortunately she fell backward and hit her head on the cement. Within a couple of months she started to loose her memory and was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease. Subsequently she was put on heavy doses of medications. As time went on, more medications were added as the number of health issues increased. The injury to her head and cervical spine were never considered as part of the problem. What if someone told her that she should be checked by a Chiropractor to remove any misalignment that she may have acquired as a result of her fall? Would she have had the chance to live a longer life with health? I will never know. But now that you know… Don’t let a loved one go through the same experience that my grandmother went through.
