Chiropractic Helps Weight Loss. In fact, new studies show that chiropractic helps weight loss. Surprised? In order to explain why, I’ll need to take you on a little journey. Do you know what part of your brain is responsible for weight loss? Remember that your brain has to parts. First is the conscious part, where you think about things, and act based on those thoughts. Second, however, is the autonomic nervous system. This is the part of your brain that runs your body in the background. In fact, it constantly makes adjustments in reaction to changes both in our bodies and in the outside world. In fact, it’s called the Autonomic Nervous System, or ANS.
Your “Automatic” Brain
However, the ANS has two parts. Furthermore, these parts work opposite each other. The first is our fight or flight system. In fact, it’s called the Sympathetic Nervous System or SNS. Your brain turns this system up when you are more active. In fact, it increases blood flow to the limbs & muscles, and releases chemicals into our blood that give us more energy. While it was designed for emergencies, we also use it to burn calories when we exercise. Additionally, the SNS also improves our metabolism.
Conversely, the other part is the calming part. Actually, it’s called the Parasympathetic Nervous System, or PNS. The PNS works opposite the fight or flight system. This system “mellows” us out and relaxes us. How does it work? Well, it diverts energy away from our limbs and muscles and into things like digestion and elimination. When the SNS is revved up, the PNS is automatically turned down and vis. versa.
As a result, to lose weight, our fight or flight system needs to work properly. According to Chiropractic Journal, chiropractic care helps your fight or flight system work properly. Additionally, research from Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism shows that improved SNS function helps you lose weight.
