Living Longer with Chiropractic Care
Pain hurts, but stress kills – and all of us are under stress constantly. Some of us cope and adapt better than others, so what makes the difference? People around the world are discovering that those who get regular chiropractic care tend to be healthier, resist injury and illness better, and live longer.
Why does this happen? First, the constant downward pull of gravity creates wear and tear on your body, especially your spine, and the spine protects the delicate nerves your brain uses as your body’s wiring system. If the spine begins to break down and degenerate, its movement is reduced, which starves the brain of the fluids that are pumped to the brain by your spinal motion.
This relationship between spinal movement and brain longevity was noted by neuroscientist Dr. Roger Sperry, who won the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1981. That’s why doctors of chiropractic focus on the alignment of the spinal bones as a cornerstone of health care. Then, when you add proper nutrition and stress relaxation techniques like meditation, and avoid unnecessary toxicity and overwork, your brain can function at peak efficiency and your body will run and heal effectively.
We are likewise subject to stresses from any dietary mistakes we make, and not dealing with the emotional upsets and pressures we all face. And getting seven or eight hours of sleep each night sets the stage for better brain function overall. Taking good care of your brain requires addressing all these different types of stressors, so your brain is resilient enough to withstand the adversities.
