In our society today headaches are a very common occurrence; however, they are not normal. Headaches have many causes of which the most common are emotional stress, physical trauma, nutritional deficiencies, chemical toxins, vision-related problems and are many times caused by spinal imbalances, which puts pressure on your nervous system.
The human body can be related to the engine of an automobile. If you put in a low grade gasoline on a regular basis, or allow the oil to build up residue, or avoid tuning it up…it truly does not have the capacity to function optimally and will deteriorate at an accelerated rate, right? It really is not news anymore that our food supply is lacking nutritional value due to being highly processed, genetically altered, and unnatural additives being increased at an alarming rate. Thus, our bodies can no longer function optimally and age at an accelerated rate due to improper care—low grade food supply, chemical additive build-up in the organs and tissues, and avoidance of the need for changes in lifestyles.
Your body is a whole system with organs, tissues, bones, etc. that must work together, not independently and need an ultimate communication system—your nervous system! It is important to keep your nerve communication free of interference, which allows your body to work its natural healing “magic” as designed by our Creator. Remember how a broken bone is made whole again, once in place, with just “time”. Or, even a simple cut, heals again with “time”. However, certain parameters, like aligned bones or absence of bacteria, must be present for the body to be able to repair damage.
The same is necessary in restoring your body’s ultimate communication system—proper nerve supply. Often times, before a headache strikes your body gives warning signals—lack of energy, neck tightness, shoulder height imbalance, tingling or numbness in arms or hands, etc. Ignoring the warnings allows the spinal imbalance and improper nerve communication to progress to a more serious level. Headaches become repetitive in nature, frequency increases, and escalate in pain level.
Very often headaches are the result of years of neglect. Many nerve communication problems are non-symptomatic until the nervous systems rebels and strikes with headaches. Chiropractic helps restore proper nerve communication and improves motion and position of malfunctioning spinal bones; thus, allowing the “magic” healing and the elimination of headaches again and again.
