Chiropractic Helps Digestion

Chiropractic Helps Digestion.  Did you know that the best selling meds in America are for indigestion? These include antacids, and acid blockers.  However, most people don’t realize how dangerous these meds are.  In fact, they can lead to osteoporosis, cancer, heart disease, kidney failure, and infections.  Additionally, this information comes from the FDA’s own web site.  However, there are alternatives.  One of these effective choices is chiropractic care.

Chiropractic Helps Digestion.  According to News Target, Americans like you spend over $80 billion are spent each year on drugs for digestive problems.  You turn to these harmful meds with the hopes of relieving heartburn, acid reflux, bloating, gas, irritable bowel, constipation, diarrhea and other gut problems. Sadly, these are only symptoms of abnormal digestion.  Additionally, they are on the rise in our society. However, there is an alternative to these harmful medications.  Research shows that chiropractic helps digestion.  In fact, Chiropractic Technique (1996, 1994 and 1993), Chiropractic Pediatrics (1993), and Clinical Chiropractic (2008) all published research showing digestion improvement with care.

So, I bet I know what you’re thinking. “Just how can adjustments help with digestion?  After all they’re just for back pain, right?”  While that seems to be the popular idea, chiropractic actually has very little to do with pain.  Why?  Because our precise spinal care takes pressure off of vital nerves.  While over 92% of these nerves control every function in your body, including your digestion, less than 8% deal with pain.  In fact, your digestion is controlled by two main nerves.  First, the vagus nerve, which comes from the brain stem controls the first 2/3’s of your colon.  Afterwards, sacral nerves control the remainder of your colon.

On top of that, spinal nerves control your stomach, gall bladder, pancreas, and small intestines.  All of these are organs are critical for digestive health.  Taking pressure off of these important nerves helps brain messages control your gut.  This, in turn, helps your digestion.  However, there’s another wrinkle in this system.  There’s another part of your nervous system that shuts down digestion.  That system is your fight or flight system.  Furthermore, stress activates this system, which shuts down digestion.  Know anyone with stress?  In fact, irritation to this system can also activate this system brining digestion to a halt.   Fortunately, research also shows chiropractic lowers levels stress chemicals.  As a result, lowering stress chemicals through spinal care can also aid digestion.
