In the mainstream world, chiropractic is thought of as healing the back and neck pain. However, in reality, chiropractic doesn’t heal anything!! What it actually does is remove the interference (subluxation) in your central nervous system, which allows YOUR BODY to restore health through its innate healing abilities. All on its own!!
Your body functions because your brain says it must. Your brain controls every aspect of your body with messages that are sent through your central nervous system which is encased by the bones of your spine. If any of the bones in your spine become out of alignment, they put pressure on your nervous system.
Misalignments, also referred to as a subluxation, can happen from hunching over at your computer desk, continually looking down at your phone, or repetitive use injuries. They can also happen due to stress, traumas and toxins.
When your spinal bones put pressure on your nervous system, the nerves are unable to properly send all of the messages from your brain to the rest of your body to allow your body to function and heal at 100%.
This is why it is critically important to have your spine checked regularly by a Doctor of Chiropractic. They can identify areas in your spine that have shifted out of alignment, and adjust them back into alignment.
Once your bones are trained to stay back in alignment, the interference to your nervous system are removed. Your brain can now regain the ability to communicate at 100% with the rest of your body. Thus, allowing function and healing to return.
This philosophy is true of healing back pain and any other health condition experienced. For example, if you had a subluxation (misalignment) at the area of your spine that allows the messages from your brain to get to your stomach, your stomach would be unable to function at 100%. You may experience various digestive issues and discomfort. By removing the interference to the nerves that direct the function and healing of your stomach, health is able to return.

What Your Body Wants!
Your body wants to be at 100% health all of the time. Give it the opportunity to create healing by removing the interference. These interference’s are generally subluxations in your spine. However, they can also be emotional stress and toxins you are exposed to.
To support your healing, it is important to feed yourself with care, try:
- Focus on eating as many colourful fruits and vegetables as you can. Expose yourself to a vast quantity of phytonutrients, vitamins and antioxidants. Click here to read, “Are You Eating Enough Colour?”
- Drink lots of water and reduce your consumption of caffeinated or sugary drinks. Click here to read, “Sugar And Cancer – How One Affects The Other”.
- Remove harsh chemicals from your daily life. They may be lurking in all of your cleaning supplies, laundry detergent, personal hygiene products and cosmetics. You can clean 99% of your house with baking soda and vinegar! Also, there are toxin free shampoo, conditioners, deodorants, shaving creams, make up and more all available at your local health food store.
