There is a direct link between your intestinal lining, your immune system and the brain and its nervous system The brain affects your gut and your gut affects your brain. This communication is mediated through the nervous system.
HOW DO YOU KNOW IF THERE IS A PROBLEM?
How would you know if your nervous system is impinged or under abnormal stress? Unfortunately you cannot just rely on the absence or presence of pain or symptoms. Even though you may feel fine, the joints of the spine can exert damaging pressure on nerve roots. One pair of nerves, the Vagus, which emerges in the upper neck, has a major control over gut function and therefore your immune status. The Vagus nerve is also the main component of the parasympathetic nervous system (PNS) which modulates all digestive functions. What type of doctor can best address and improve the relationship between the gut, immune system and nervous system? A chiropractic physician or acupuncturist, who has expertise in detecting and correcting upper cervical misalignment. Our doctor at Back in Motion Chiropractic and Acupuncture in Daphne has this experience.
YOU MUST TAKE RESPONSIBILITY
The physician cannot succeed without your help. You have to take the responsibility to become your own physician/nutritionist. You could wisely choose to get adjustments to the upper neck to insure the atlas and parasympathetic nervous system is clear to function the way it was designed. But if you gorge on sugar and fast food, the gut lining will remain under stress and continue to weaken your immune function. At Back in Motion Chiropractic and Acupuncture in Daphne our doctor has 30 years of experience in removing nerve compression syndromes that contribute to the PNS stress that can weaken your immune response.
