Millions of American’s suffer from digestive issues.
We know this due to the sales of over the counter remedies like Tums, Rolaids, Nexium and more. Heartburn, gas, constipation, diarrhea, indigestion, all make you very uncomfortable. We all want relief. The thing is that all of these medications have side effects whether you experience them right away or not especially if taken over lengths of time. They can be very helpful as a quick fix, but it is important to understand the difference between fixing something and patching it. It means the difference between running over a nail in the road and grabbing a patch kit for your tire or actually getting a new tire without a hole in it that you won’t have to worry about in the future. The patch may only last until your next outing or in this case “eating”.
Science has shown that Chiropractic can offer a solution to the issue. The digestive system is controlled by the nervous system. Spinal misalignment can lead to neurological compromise and altered and lessened digestive function.
Speaking with your Chiropractor about your digestive issues clues him or her into the fact that the vagus nerve which comes out of the brain stem, as well as the sympathetic nerves coming out of the thoracic and lumbar regions and the sacral parasympathetic nerve fibers, could be compromised leading to digestive issues.
Subluxations (misalignments) within these specific areas in the spine can hamper if not totally prevent the elimination process from performing naturally and properly. Once in alignment, you will no longer need medications to function.
