Do you suffer from digestive disorders? For most people, digestion is a natural process that we take for granted. When the digestive process gets interrupted, it will result in various digestive disorders. Common disorders include colic, acid reflux, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome and Crohn’s disease. Symptoms of digestive disorders are painful cramping, bloating, diarrhea, constipation or bleeding. Many people take over-the-counter or prescription drugs for symptom relief, which may have dangerous side effects or cause further digestive stress.
Research and clinical evidence continues to suggest that a malfunctioning nervous system may be a key factor in developing many digestive disorders. The digestive system is under direct control of the brain stem via the vagus nerve. The brain stem is the command center for many vital functions, which includes digestion. A misalignment caused by a number of things, such as, bump, fall, sport injury, car accident, emotional stress or birth trauma can interfere with proper function of the brain stem.
A gentle and precise upper cervical adjustment can correct the misalignment at the top of the spine and allow the nervous system to function properly and may naturally reduce the symptoms caused by digestive disorders. Consider upper cervical specific chiropractic care if you suffer from digestive problems.
