When our brain senses harm either from a traumatic/repetitive injury, stressful/negative thought or exposure to a toxins in the air, water, food or environment (aka. The THREE T’s), it shifts into protection mode—the fight-or-flight response (Sympathetic/Stress Response). The brain notes the body’s level of harm and determines whether we should be in fight-or-flight mode or if we have the “all clear” and can invest energy in growth and repair.

 

Our entire body is hardwired neurologically to respond to these signals one way or another: We cannot be both in GROWTH/HEALING and PROTECTION at the same time. While stressful mental activity includes negative, angry, fearful or depressed thoughts, physical traumas and toxic exposures represent influence the same centers of the brain as these mental thoughts do.

 

As you can imagine, we can be consciously aware of being angry, feeling nauseous from something we smell, or feeling pain from an injury, but an abundance of subconscious signals from these same circumstances reach the following key areas of the brain: the hippocampus (the center for learning), the amygdala (the stress and anxiety center), and the hypothalamus (the neuroendocrine control center, which initiates a cascade of events preparing us for fight or flight).

 

To give you an idea of the amount of signals detected by our brain each second, according to Bruce Lipton, Ph.D., we are able to perceive 40 bits of information consciously each second. In that time, 20,000,000 (yes, 20 million!) bits reach the brain subconsciously. Being that the majority of this input is subconscious, by definition you are not aware of it! Clearly, then, the quality of this abundant information profoundly influences the brain’s function.

 

Chiropractic adjustments, exercise, daily nutrient intake, and positive and loving thoughts contribute to creating high-quality input to the nervous system. This constructive input enhances healing, growth and balanced function. Health really boils down to homeostasis (balanced function) at the cellular level. To create a lifetime of health that can survive like D.D. Palmer’s principles, we must provide our bodies with optimal input throughout our lives.

 

Adjustments stop subconscious negative signals and brings the body into a state of ease thus allowing for a balanced state and therefore normal functioning of the entire body. Living a life in balance is the key to optimal health. 

 

I love you and I'm here for you 100%.
