Chiropractic Helps Migraine Headaches. Headaches can range in severity, frequency, length and type.  Unfortunately, then can even be unpredictable.  In fact, they can “kick in” at the worst possible times.  Sadly, they can cause you to miss out on work, family and fun.  Since there are so many different types and causes, addressing the cause can be difficult.  But when you have to work, cook, clean and help your kids with their homework, you’ll reach for anything.

Chiropractic Helps Migraine Headaches.  Migraine headaches are one of the biggest reasons Americans like you turn to medication.  According to the CDC, more than 36 million Americans suffer from migraine headaches.  In fact, we spend over $4 billion each year on over-the-counter medication to treat them.  However, medication only provides short-term relief.  Unfortunately, modern medicine does not have an answer beyond drugs.  Unfortunately, most people are unaware of the serious dangers of the popular over the counter meds.  Of course, once those stop working, your doctor will give you a scrip for stronger ones.

Chiropractic & Migraine Headaches

However, research from 2016 shows that patients under chiropractic treatment had fewer migraines than those using popular drugs.  Additionally, those under chiropractic treatment also had shorter migraines.  Sadly, the study still did not credit the spinal corrections.  Why?  Because when performing a spinal adjustment, it is impossible to remove the doctor from the equation.  This makes the double-blind part of the experiment difficult.  As a result, the study concludes the result was due to a placebo effect, despite the facts that the statistics show very strong evidence that spinal corrections performed better than placebo or medication.   You can look up the study here.

A Comprehensive Approach

Redmond Ridge Nutrition & Chiropractic offers a safe, natural, and effective approach for headache (s) and migraines.  We use a unique combination of traditional or low force chiropractic care, home exercises, enzyme nutrition*, and massage therapy. This combined approach helps your body deal with both chemical and physical stress.  As it turns out, this is vital since either can cause a headache or head pain.  In fact, if you decide to visit our office for headache related issues, the first thing we will do is sit down with you and talk.  The purpose is to find out the severity of your problem, and how your problem limits your life.  Specifically, how do your headaches affect your work, family and play time.

Then we will perform a detailed exam to reveal the root cause of your suffering.  If necessary, we will order any necessary imaging.  Only after a thorough evaluation, we will make recommendations based on your test results and situation.

Chiropractic Helps Weight Loss

Chiropractic helps weight loss.  In a world of gimmick diets, and supplements that come with false hopes and promises, Americans are desperate to lose weight.  While many seek weight loss to improve appearance and self-esteem, many of our nation’s top killers start with obesity.  In fact, these chronic diseases include diabetes, heart disease, heart failure, high blood pressure, and many more.

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.

A Unique Combination of Nutrition, Chiropractic, & Exercise

In fact, this is precisely our focus at Redmond Ridge Nutrition.  We use the right dietary changes in combination with enzyme supplements designed to support health fat breakdown and body metabolism.   Of course, we also help your ANS work properly through specific spinal corrections.  These adjustments are both safe and precise.  However, we also can use either traditional or low-force techniques depending on the patient.  Since every case is unique, we only make recommendations after a thorough examination and nutritional testing.  Furthermore, our testing is based on sound medical principles.  Once we make those dietary changes, we stand behind you as your coach teaching you how to eat to your own genetic strengths.  If you like, we can use our 30 years of fitness instruction to help you develop a safe and effective exercise program.

Do you suffer from obesity?  Have you tried everything?  Are you concerned about the long-term health consequences?  If so, please don’t wait. Give us a call at 425-868-0120 and set up a consultation or contact us on the web. I will personally sit down with you and talk about your suffering and how it affects your life. Then we can schedule a thorough examination.  At that time, I’ll order or examine any images and perform a thorough examination so we can discover the cause of your suffering.  After that we can either put the best plan in place or provide you with the right referral.
