Why do people need wellness now a days? Because Dis-ease is at an all time high, obesity rates are higher than ever, 60% of Americans are overweight and 50% of them are obese, 50% of children are overweight, adult onset diabetes had to be renamed because it no longer just happens to adults, this generation of children is the only generation of children who will not outlive their parents, the U.S. makes up 9% of the world's population and we consume 53% of the world's drugs yet we are only ranked 49th in overall health... do I need to go on? We've gone from the world's 'super species' to the world's 'sickest species' in the past 100 years. Why?
It's because we live in a model of health care that does not work. (symptom based health care).
The answer to the problem is a functional based health care system that deals with how the body 'FUNCTIONS' rather than how it 'FEELS'. The system in the body that coordinates and regulates every function is the nervous system so it is very important to maintain a proper spine for proper health and well-being.
Stresses (emotional, physical, and chemical) all cause subluxations. Subluxations activate a chronic flight/fight response which weakens the immune system and leads to chronic stress symptoms such as; allergies, headaches, asthma, insomnia/sleep disturbances, eczema, anxiety, aspergers, ADD/ADHD, depression, acid reflux, high blood pressure, seizures, OCD, cancer, constipation, high cholesterol, bed wetting, ear infections, fatigue, bipolar, behavioral issues, epilepsy, sensory processing disorders, heart disease, and the usual aches and pains.
Subluxation has 3 basic components: a misalignment of a vertebra, which then causes fixation (the joint becomes "stuck"), which in turn leads to interference and stress placed on the nerve and the nerves in that area. We know that subluxation(s) cause the entire nervous system to go into a state of flight/fight, know as the sympathetic stress response.
