New Year, Fresh Start, Healthier You
Kick Your New Year off Right with a Healthy Body and Mind
Many people already have their new year goals in place for the year 2020 but do not consider how upper cervical chiropractic adjustments can help accomplish their goals. Whether you want to eat healthier, exercise more, or increase your productivity you will always be limited if your brain stem is interrupted.
This is because your brain stem is the powerhouse that allows signals to transfer back and forth between your brain and body, allowing your system to understand what it needs to do and how to do it. An upper cervical misalignment, located in the neck area, can cause pressure on your brain stem and disrupt its signals which can cause your body to have many different complications that cannot be helped without a proper upper cervical chiropractic adjustment.
An upper cervical misalignment can be caused by an accident, injury, fall, or poor posture. Luckily, a natural, gentle upper cervical chiropractic adjustment can remove this misalignment and remove the stress it places onto your brain stem.
How Does a Compressed Brain Stem Affect my Health?
A compressed brain stem can affect your brain and body’s state in many various ways. Many conditions can be helped by an upper cervical chiropractic adjustment just because it allows the brain stem to return to its natural function. Below is how a compressed brain stem affects your digestion, fatigue, and brain fog.
Wanting to eat healthier for the new year? If you have an upper cervical misalignment, it could cause various digestive disorders. Most of the control of your digestive system is under direct control of the brain stem. The list of digestive disorders is long and varied, but some of the most common digestive disorders that arise because of the nervous system being “out of sync” include the following: Crohn’s disease, colic, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, and colic.
Each section of your GI tract can create its own disorder. Some of these disorders can be annoying while others become painful or debilitating. A few of the more painful or debilitating disorders include bloating, bleeding, diarrhea, and cramping.
A compressed brain stem will not allow the body to function properly. If you want to exercise more but often feel too tired, this could be due to a misalignment in the upper cervical area as the body is not getting the signals it needs
Fatigue is usually an indicator that something is not working efficiently so if one of your goals for the new year is to exercise more, your body may not be up to the task to handle it as well as it should if a misalignment is present.
In order to stay productive for the new year, you need to be able to have mental clarity. When you experience mental confusion and have trouble focusing, it is called brain fog. Brain fog can come from a disrupted brain stem as pressure on the brain stem limits blood flow to the brain, depriving it of proper oxygen levels.
If a goal you have in mind is to increase your productivity, brain fog can work against you. Other symptoms of brain fog include forgetfulness and slow thinking.
If a misalignment is left untreated, conditions can worsen and become chronic. This is why we recommend as soon as you experience symptoms of brain fog, fatigue, or digestion disorders to see if you have a misalignment that may need an upper cervical chiropractic adjustment.
How Can Upper Cervical Chiropractic Adjustments Help Me Reach My New Year Goals?
Eating healthier, exercising more, and increasing productivity are very common new year goals. If the brain stem is compressed, however, it can hinder your performance or make it more difficult for you to reach these goals.
While eating healthier can help your digestion, your body’s digestion will not be able to work as properly as it should if the brain stem is interrupted. Those who eat healthy might still encounter digestion issues and try to eat different foods, even unhealthy ones, that they find do not “trigger” their digestive symptoms.
If you are experiencing problems with digestion, an upper cervical chiropractic adjustment can help take the pressure placed on your brain stem caused by an upper cervical misalignment. This will allow your digestion to function properly now that the brain to body signals are regulated.
Fatigue affects many people and is very common. Exercising regularly can help the body feel more energy, but your energy levels will always be less than normal if the brain stem is affected. Your brain can detect your body’s energy excess and deficit by sensing levels of hormones and nutrients and by receiving signals from the automatic nervous system.
A compressed brain stem will distort these signals, or never send them, and disrupt your energy levels. In addition, the brain cannot sense energy excess or deficit through levels of hormones or nutrients if it does not have proper communication with the body. An upper cervical chiropractic adjustment will allow the brain and body to sense signals and send information back and forth properly and can help your body reclaim its energy.
Staying productive can be challenging if brain fog is causing you to forget often, think slower, and become confused. It’s also not only about staying productive at home, by at work as well if you are wanting a promotion or different job.
Many people for the new year have mentioned wanting to learn a new skill or hobby as well and staying on track of learning something new can be difficult if you are affected by brain fog. While there are medications for increasing your mental focus and productivity, they do not help fix the cause of brain fog and come with various side effects.
Upper cervical chiropractic adjustments will realign the upper cervical spine that surrounds your brain stem and remove any interference. Many patients have expressed noticing an increase in their mental clarity in as little as one adjustment!
Upper cervical chiropractic adjustments are gentle and safe for any age. During upper cervical chiropractic adjustments, there is not cracking involved and upper cervical chiropractors use small, precise movements to correct your upper cervical spine.
