Chiropractic Improves Digestion Over 70%
The greatest neuroscientists in the world now refer to the spine as the motor to the brain. Abnormal spinal health creates abnormal brain and nervous system health. The health of the spine influences most of the body’s systems, including the digestive system. A study from 2009 showed that patients suffering with digestive disorders achieved outstanding results from chiropractic spinal adjustments. The research examined the relationship between a chiropractic adjustment and digestive health. The study concluded that 71% of patients suffering from a digestive disorder experienced improvement in symptoms severity and 45% reported the ability to reduce the use of digestive medications.
The numbers clearly show the correlation between digestive health and spinal health. Chiropractors began a call to educate a society needlessly suffering from ailments and the side effects of pharmaceutical drugs. The chiropractic mission seeks to not only educate the public, but to also empower patients to advocate for a healthier world in their own homes and neighborhoods.
Millions of children and adults suffer from digestive pain and diseases. Most people know at least one person in their family, job, or community who suffers from a digestive system ailment. Chiropractic can help. Chiropractic adjustments do not intended to treat or cure specific conditions. Adjustments target overall spinal health and produce a better functioning spine. The importance of research goes beyond simply helping patients overcome challenges with digestive disorders. The standard pharmaceutical treatment for most digestive complaints carries dangerous consequences and little to no informed education on those consequences. Pharmaceutical companies design to treat symptoms but do so while subjecting users to many unwanted and immeasurable side effect. The most important function of the digestive system is to absorb nutrients for tissue growth and repair. Medications do a great job of reducing pain but do so while inhibiting the function and processes within the digestive system. Medications temporarily alleviate pain but alter the absorption and excretion process within the body. Natural solutions that address the root cause of problems without interfering with the innate functions of the body continue to be the best alternative to a pharmaceutical approach. Chiropractic care delivers.
Scientific research shows the realistic results made possible for digestive disorders through chiropractic spinal adjustments. Improved digestive health exists as only a small cross section of benefits experienced by Chiropractic patients. Scientifically based evidence proves that every person in every family benefits from regular spinal evaluations and adjustments. The God-given potential for optimal health exists within the body and involves much more than freedom from back and neck pain. Adjustments lead to better brain function and the overall improvement of the body and the health systems within. The Chiropractic mission produces health at the source of human function. The pursuit involves a proactive approach to health rather than reactive treatment at the hands of drugs and surgery. Every Chiropractor and every healthy patient plays a pivotal role in planting the roots of Chiropractic care deeper into the soil of America’s local communities.
