Chiropractic (coming from the Greek words that mean “hands” and “practice”) is a practice that involves manipulating your spine and joints in order to encourage proper alignment. When our spines or joints slowly get out of place over time, or abruptly due to an accident or injury, this can create a range of symptoms from chronic pain to fatigue to decreased sex drive.
The spine houses thirty-one different sections of nerves that are responsible for pretty much everything that goes on in your body. Proper spine alignment is essential for healthy and accurate nerve communication, which can affect everything from your digestion to cognitive function.
Get Those Toxins Out!
Toxins build up in our bodies over time. While we do our best to minimize and eliminate these toxins on a daily basis—such as through exercise (sweating), drinking water (flushing out toxins), and adopting healthy habits (not using pesticides or chemicals in our homes—toxins still invade our systems every day.
Chiropractic adjustments actually release toxins that have built up in the body over time. The chiropractor does this by manipulating your joints and spine in order to achieve proper alignment. When this happens, the spine and joints can release toxins that have accumulated in there as a result of the body’s wear on this improper alignment.
Releasing toxins not only encourages healthy bodies, but it also helps us to cultivate positive energy. When so many toxins have built up over time, this can create an environment where it’s easy for our bodies to harbor negativity. We can cultivate positive energy through chiropractic adjustments by getting those toxins out of there and having a healthier, happier body as a result.
Exercise is this amazing thing we do for our bodies. However, when we’re exercising with poor posture or a spine that isn’t in alignment, it’s actually doing some damage to our skeletal structure. This is why it’s so important to have proper spine and joint alignment in order to reap the full benefits of exercise.
This is also particularly important when it comes to yoga. Yoga involves postures that encourage you to stretch your body to help relieve pain and improve flexibility. While these things are great, they aren’t able to be fully achieved without proper spine alignment. Chiropractic works great with yoga as a way to help your body move freely without being hindered by subluxations, or minor dislocations in the spine, as well as poor posture.
While chiropractic itself won’t necessarily improve your posture, your chiropractor will work with you to ensure that you are getting the full benefits of your chiropractic adjustments by practicing proper posture throughout your day as well as during exercise.
The spine is the center of your body: it supports the function of so many systems in our magical human bodies. Getting chiropractic adjustments can help us to feel great and reap the benefits of exercise. Chiropractic adjustments can also help to rid our bodies of any toxins and therefore further cultivate positive energy. Chiropractic care combined with a great food regimen can help you to feel even better.
The best thing about chiropractic is that it’s an ancient practice that is purely natural—no drugs are used at all. It’s just your chiropractor adjusting your spine and joints. That’s it. This maneuvers are surprisingly effective at treating a range of health problems and can help you feel your best!
