As you learn how to live a healthy, Breast Cancer-free lifestyle and begin to put many different natural healing modalities and substances into your healing toolbox, chiropractic care may not be the first thing that comes to mind.
Chiropractic Care and the Immune System
Did you know that 70% of advanced Breast Cancer patients (as well as lung, thyroid, kidney and prostate cancer patients) who experience cancer metastasis will develop a secondary cancer tumor somewhere along their skeletal system? Chiropractic has been shown to directly improve healing in the majority of cancer patients without the harmful side effects that medication and conventional therapies bring with them.
Quality chiropractic care focuses on correcting dysfunction in the nervous system by bringing balance to the vertebrae, which protect the spinal column. Proper alignment of the spine prevents stress on the nervous system, helps to reduce stress responses and boosts the immune system overall. The removal of subluxations (spinal misalignments) can also unblock signaling pathways between the nervous system, your organs and the Immune System.
It has been found that people under regular chiropractic care have a 300% greater immune competence than those who are not.
Without the ability of the body’s systems to communicate with each other, proper healing cannot occur. Chiropractic care has also been shown to lead to improvements in gastroenterological function and provide relief for chronic constipation, GERD, IBS, colic, heartburn and more.
Consistent chiropractic care has been shown to significantly reduce hypertension and have shown to reduce systolic and diastolic blood pressure in studies going back thirty years. The focus on the bones in the neck will relieve pressure in the head and brain stem and this will help relieve blood pressure.
Stress and Chiropractic
The human body’s nervous system is divided into two main branches – the Sympathetic and Parasympathetic System. The Sympathetic System is like the accelerator in a car – it sets the fight or flight energy and revs up when you are under stress. According to a recent study, it can encourage tumor growth when the “accelerator” stays in the stuck position.
The Parasympathetic System creates calm and reduces anxiety, digests food, helps with sleep and heals the body. But what happens if there is a structural misalignment that may be aggravating the nervous system? The brake and accelerator will not be balanced and a nervous system will not function optimally for healing.
The Benefits of Chiropractic Care:
-Boosts the immune system
-Reduces stress (and the stress/cortisol response)
-Increases mobility, flexibility and strength
– helps promote restful sleep
-opens up energy flow, or Chi, in the body
-Reduces anxiety and depression
-Reduces allergic responses
-Helps the GI tract
Whether you are on a Breast Cancer healing path, wish to prevent cancer or just enjoy better health overall, chiropractic care is an absolute MUST for any health plan.
