Patients involved in a study experienced a significant lowering of both their systolic and diastolic blood pressure after receiving chiropractic adjustments.(1) That’s incredible news if you are one of the 19 out of 20 Canadian’s who are estimated to develop hypertension (high blood pressure) in their lifetime.(2)
For those of you who have read my blog for a while you’ll know exactly why. Because the nervous system controls everything. Even blood pressure.
Our family learned this first hand through my mom’s sky high blood pressure for over 9 years. Doctors and specialists continued to prescribe blood pressure medication while her blood pressure went out of control. She was in danger of having a stroke for years. It was the only tool they had so that’s what was given. On the other hand, while I was home visiting for the weekend I would adjust her, and the blood pressure would go down for a few day’s. Only to return later in the week. It turned out that she had an adrenal issue that was causing the blood pressure.
Even though the adjustments only held the blood pressure at bay for a few day’s, I know those adjustments all those years ago saved her life until the real issue could be discovered. All that transpired almost 20 years ago. She’s been adjusted ever since, and is healthier today than 20+ years ago!
I am so thankful.
Your nervous system is an incredible thing and you need to take care of it with today’s, very advanced, safe and effective chiropractic care.
If you’re not taking care of your nervous system then you really are at risk for disease and sickness that have no business in your body.
Living a long, healthy, active AND significant life is possible and you need a healthy nervous system to do it. If you don’t know how your nervous system is doing then it’s time to change that. It’s a check up that will take a few minutes out of your day, but that checkup could one day save your life.
