At one time or another, we have all experienced the discomfort of bloating, abdominal pain, gas, diarrhea or constipation, but for many this is becoming a daily occurrence for some people. Traditionally, triggers have thought to have been anything from stress, eating certain foods, stomach or bowel infections.
If you eat three meals a day, then ideally you should be having 2-3 bowel movements a day. Anything less than that means that the waste that your body is trying to remove is sitting in the body for longer than it should. This can results in many health issues including toxicity, poor skin, poor digestion, body pain, bad breath or body odour and much more.
At each level of your spine, nerves feed organs, glands and tissues vital messages from the brain. What has been found to be common with people who have digestive problems such as bloating, diarrhea, constipation, IBS and Crohns is that often the low back is compromised. Meaning Subluxation, a misalignment in the spine is present in the low back, which can effect the brains communication with the organs, glands and tissues in the lower part of the body.
Crohn’s Disease is an inflammatory bowel disease and its prevalence is increasing in western societies. The symptoms are most commonly diarrhea and stomach pain, but weight loss and irritability are also characteristic of the disease. Up until now, typical treatment for Crohn’s has been with various drugs such as antihistamines, antibiotics, immunosuppressants and artificial hormones. Unfortunately for many, these drugs are considered unsatisfactory and there are a long list of side effects that go along with these drugs. Many sufferers often require reoccurring hospitalization and even surgery.
According to the results of a recent study on “Chronic Nerve Compression,” Subluxation may play a significant role in the cause of Crohn’s Disease and other digestive problems.
The pressure on the nervous system that results from chronic undetected subluxation (spinal misalignment) can have significant effects on digestion and the absorption of nutrients and liquids.
“It is easy to see why people with all kinds of digestive and intestinal disorders respond very well to specific Chiropractic Corrective Adjustments. All human processes are monitored and controlled by the human brain, spinal cord and the network of nerves exiting the spine that run through the whole body,” the researchers said.
Dr Anthony reminds us that there is an alternative to conventional and sometimes dangerous laxatives and medical methods of attempting to improve bowel function. Not only should a change in diet and nutrition be looked at, but also the health and the state of the spine and nervous system.
In a study looking at Chiropractic patients with digestive problems, a massive 70% of the patients who had battled with chronic digestive problems showed long term and stable remission of their symptoms without the need for drugs after receiving 12 – 52 weeks of specific corrective chiropractic adjustments.
