Spinal health affects body and mind

A subluxation is a misalignment of one or more vertebrae (bones in your spine) that causes interference with your nervous system. The following are reasons why you should have your spine checked on a regular basis.1. More energyThe energy that runs your body comes from the brain, travels over the nerves and gives vitality and vigor to your body. Logic says if that energy is interfered with, your body will not work at its fullest potential.2. Clearer thinking, concentration and memoryDid you ever have a day when your mind was extra sharp, thoughts and ideas came quickly, or your memory was especially good? Ever have just the opposite type of day? Well, your body chemistry determines, to a great extent, your ability to think, concentrate and remember. Body chemistry is controlled by your nervous system and your nervous system works better without any interference (vertebral subluxation).3. Less stressHow can a spinal adjustment make your job easier or cause your kids to give you less problems? Well, it cannot, but there is a difference between adversity and stress. Adversities are the circumstances of life; you cannot change them. Stress is the inability to handle those adversities. How well your body is working will determine, to some degree, how much adversity you can handle and how much stress you have in your life.4. A longer lifeAll things being equal, you will live longer if you take care of yourself, barring any unforeseen trauma, of course. Taking care of yourself means keeping your nervous system free of interference due to vertebral subluxations.5. More sleepAll sleep is not the same. Just because you get 10 hours of sleep, you are not necessarily getting the rest you need. At different times we have all awakened refreshed, sluggish or tired from the same amount of sleep. How well your body is working will determine how much of your sleep is real sleep and not just down time.6. Greater value from exerciseWe all need to exercise regularly. Some of us do not have the energy to get off the couch and begin a workout. Some of us have interference in the nervous system that keeps the muscles of our body from receiving a full complement of vital life energy. It is like trying to exercise a paralyzed muscle. There is not enough energy going to those muscles. That is what happens when there is interference in the nerve system due to a vertebral subluxation.7. More balanced chemistryThe proper balance of your body’s chemistry is unique for you. Only the innate wisdom of your body knows exactly what it should be. People can only guess at the correct composition. The organs, glands and cells of the body must be working properly to produce the right amount at the right time. Your nervous system is critical in the coordination of that function.8. More hours in your dayHow can you get more than 24 hours in your day from chiropractic visits? Time-management experts will tell you it is the efficient use of your time, not the total number of hours that is the issue. If your mind and body are working as well as they possibly can, you will be more efficient.9. Increased income earning capacityEnergy, alertness, clear thinking, the ability to handle diversity, efficiency and physically, mentally and emotionally functioning at a higher level could enable you to work more, work harder, get a better job or promotion, or even start a business of your own.10. Improved relationshipsWhy is it some people seem to be able to get along with people that you cannot stand? Perhaps it is you. If you were functioning at a higher level and your body chemistry was balanced, perhaps you could handle them better and not be bothered by whatever it is about them that affects your relationship.11. Improved performanceWith an improved nerve supply, all your performance levels will be elevated. Whether that improvement is enough to make a difference is an individual matter. As the advertisement says, “results may vary.” However, getting adjusted and doing some other healthy things will have a cumulative effect and result in noticeable changes. It makes sense to do everything possible to improve performance, including having a good nerve supply.12. Better digestionThere are probably hundreds of reasons why certain foods affect certain people. Most times, the cause can be traced to the inability of the body to handle that food. If it were the food, then it would negatively affect everyone. There are many reasons why your body and your nerve system may not work properly. One of those reasons: interference of the nervous system due to vertebral subluxation.13. Enjoy life moreThe bottom line is to have a happier and more fulfilled life. If you see improvement in the areas above, your life will be more enjoyable. Even some of the things you do not enjoy now could become more pleasurable and rewarding.Getting adjusted regularly makes sense.Palmer Chiropractic is located in the Safeway shopping center.
