You may not realize it, but chiropractic adjustments help flush the body of toxins. This is sometimes noticeable in that after an adjustment you may feel lightheaded or even slightly nauseous. This feeling is the result of toxins being released from your cells into the bloodstream to be cleared.
During an adjustment, the spinal vertebrae are put back into proper balance so that the nervous system can work efficiently in sending signals to the brain and other organs in the body. This includes your immune system telling your body to release any held toxins. When you are out of alignment that communication is impaired. Toxins get, instead stored into your fat cells.
The strange feelings after an adjustment are a result of your body resetting itself and finally being able to do its job of fighting off non wanted substances.
What are toxins?
Toxins are all around us daily. They are anything that is unnatural and introduced into the body. Things like tobacco smoke, asbestos, pesticides, heavy metals, mold, or chemicals are all considered bodily toxins. A toxic level can also be reached for substances such as caffeine or sugar, which are ok to ingest in moderation.
Because they are invaders the body wants to get them out and produces inflammation (an irritation that they are there).
When your body reaches its threshold and can’t withstand the load it begins detoxifying itself. You may notice symptoms such as a runny nose, feeling exhausted, or even diarrhea. The body is naturally designed to rid itself of things that do not belong there. Coughing or sneezing may also happen as your body tries its best to expel them.
Should you reach a point where your natural detoxification defenses (I.e., Your kidneys) cannot handle the process fast enough the toxins can spread to other organs slowing the metabolism and thought process.
This is why its important to detox regularly.
