Did you know that your nerve system is the remarkable link for communication between your mind and body? In fact, nerve fibers flow into every cell, tissue, and organ of your body, and have direct links to your immune system! That’s why keeping your spinal cord and nervous system healthy is essential if you want to be healthy and live life to its fullest!
As early as 1993, scientists uncovered evidence of an anatomical connection between the nerve and immune system. Subsequently, they discovered that if these nerves were removed from the spleen or lymph nodes, “you virtually stopped the immune responses in their tracks.” These same nerves are not only linked to your immune system but are the suppliers of communication to all of your body’s muscles and vital organs. When vertebrae (spinal bones) are misaligned, they can cause compression, stretching, or pinching on these nerves resulting in altered organ function, nerve damage, “dis-ease” and sickness.
Research is proving that spinal nerves are much more susceptible to pressure than previously thought. A University of Colorado study concluded that only 5-10mm of mercury pressure (about the weight of a dime) can reduce nerve transmission while the stretching of a nerve by as little as 6% can decrease its strength by up to 70%. The vital connection between your health and vitality and the health of your spine can no longer be ignored! Subluxations are silent killers the can compromise your immune system, organ function, central nervous system and your overall health.
Left Unchecked, Subluxations Diminish Your Quality of Life and Can Cause:
- Reduced Range of Motion
- Degeneration of Cartilage and Bone
- Feeling Old Before Your Time
- Acute and Chronic Pain
- Loss of Energy and Fatigue
- Physical and Mental Disability
- Reduced Ability to Cope with Stress
- Attention Deficit Disorder
- Bone Deformation
…and the list goes on…
