How Wellness Works
Health Problems are due to physical, chemical or stress related causes.
Most people understand how chemicals or stress can cause problems but
don't understand how their problems could have a physical connection.
An example of a physical problem would be a pebble in a shoe. It
caused your pain because it put pressure on a nerve. If you irritate a
nerve of pain you feel pain. You can't feel pain without an irritated
nerve. Pain in your tooth, shoulder, back or anywhere always
involves nerves. Nerves do two things. They notify the brain of
problems through pain and they control all your functions. Along with
the brain, nerves control all functions in your body. To function
means to work. They control everything that works in your body. They
control breathing, digestion, walking, and your heart. They control
your hormones. They allow you to taste, see, touch and hear. If you
put pressure on a nerve of pain you feel pain. If you put pressure on a
nerve of function you don't feel pain you just don't function. If you
put pressure on a nerve related to breathing, you don't feel pain you
just don't breath normally. Put pressure on a nerve that controls
circulation, you loose circulation.
The first thing we do in our office with a person who has a
problem is check to see if there is anything wrong with the related
nerves. As a Chiropractor I first check the top of the neck because
over 300 million nerves come out the base of the skull. If there is
pressure there, it can cause any problem you might have. The second area
we check is the area of the spine from where the nerves go to your
Your health problems could be caused stress. This affects the
adrenal glands. These glands secrete the major hormones related to
numerous areas of health such as immunity, sleeping, weight, fatigue,
blood pressure, and women's hormone levels, to name a few. These
glands of stress are most harmed by caffeine, sugar and stress of any
kind. These glands secrete hormones that might be related to your
problem. We will check the nerves that control your adrenal glands.
Sometimes besides correcting the pressure on the nerves, we have to
modify or diet or give you supplements to support and strengthen these
Health problems can also be chemical in nature. Our food, water
and air are full of toxic chemicals. These toxic chemicals will affect
your health. Your liver is the filter of the body and often cannot
handle all the toxic chemicals in our environment. When the liver
becomes unable to filter, the chemicals go back into the body and can
contribute to the problem you have. Often a simple liver cleanse will
get miraculous results.
All this explains why many people have gone to wellness chiropractor
for back pain and then recovered from a different problem altogether.
Our purpose is to help people and we would like to have the opportunity to see if our methods could help you.
