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.

Digestive Health Problems and how it can impact your life.

Does that sound familiar?  Ok, maybe you don’t cycle like Mike does.  However, what have you given up doing the things you love because your digestive health is lacking.  This was Mike’s life.  Of course, it didn’t start out that way.  He started out simply missing a day here and there.  Then his problem progressed to a couple of times per month.  Lastly, it advanced to several days per week.  Mike’s passion, aside from his family, is cycling.  He is a life-long cycler.  Cycling gives Mike a peace and freedom he knows nowhere else.

Sadly, it all came to a halt when his digestive health problems intensified.  Mike is a patient in my office.  However, he started out as a chiropractic patient.  At first, cycling would aggravate his lower back.  The right combination of chiropractic care with home exercises alleviated his back issues.  However, Mike told me he was going from specialist to specialist regarding his bowel problems.  I told him about enzyme nutrition, and how it can support normal digestive health in a private setting.  While he wanted to discuss it further, I promised I would never pressure him.  Mike underwent a consultation.  The results showed promise that he was a good candidate for care.

He Wasn’t Sure…

However, Mike was skeptical.  After all, what does a Chiropractic Physician know about digestive health and nutrition?  I explained to Mike that I have over 200 hours of post-graduate education in nutrition alone, and that Medical Doctors these days receive less than five hours.  After that, I left it alone.  Months later, during a routine appointment, Mike explained that he was upset about his last checkup with his GI specialists.  As it turns out, according to Mike, the specialists took a lot of time explaining the problem.  However, according to Mike, they offered no real solution.  Mike was furious, “What’s the point of naming my condition if they can’t do anything about it?”

Mike finally decided to undergo enzyme nutrition testing.  In Mike’s case, he was lacking astringent enzymes in his digestive tract.  Additionally, the mucosal lining in his large intestine was compromised.  Together, these issues caused Mike’s digestive health problems.  Once Mike started taking the right enzymes and made the right dietary changes, he was back on his bike in no time.  In fact, Mike refers to his enzymes as “magic little pills.” (Disclaimer – his words, not mine).  In fact, I explained that there was no magic behind the enzyme supplements, only science.  The enzyme supplements help his digestive system work properly and support a healthy mucous layer in his colon.  However, he still refers to them as “magic pills”.

A Phone Call…

A few weeks later I got a phone call from a woman I whose voice I didn’t recognize.  It was Mike’s wife.  I met or spoke with her prior to that day.  She was in tears.  I asked her what was wrong, and she exclaimed “Nothing!  I just wanted to thank you for saving my husband’s life and our marriage.  He’s back on his bike, he’s happier, has more energy, and I love him like the day I met him.  I just wanted to tell you how grateful I was.”  I have to admit, after speaking with her, I teared up a little myself.

While every case is unique, contact us if you’ve been from doctor to doctor with no answers to your digestive health concerns.  Or perhaps the only solutions available in the medical field are surgery or drugs with harmful side effects.

If so, contact us and set up a consultation or call us at 425-868-0120.  I will personally sit down with you and talk about your suffering and how it affects your life.  I will even do some preliminary testing as well as Bio Impedance Analysis, which is trusted by both NASA and Cancer Treatment Centers of America.  This will help me determine if you are a good candidate for care.  If you’re not, we’ll make every effort to provide the proper referral.
