It’s that time of the year where everyone gets a blank slate, going into a new year with new goals and resolutions to accomplish. The key to success with resolutions is DISCIPLINE. However, in a fast-paced and stress-filled world, it’s easy to come across distractions and interferences that ward us off our course. Often enough, people find it hard to get back on track, and their new year’s resolutions get bumped to the next year instead. As Chiropractors, we not only love to educate and equip our patients with the tools necessary to maintain a healthier lifestyle, but Chiropractic adjustments can also help in reducing the interferences that may stand in your way.
When taking on these new years’ resolutions, our Mississauga Chiropractors of Active Family Chiropractic and Wellness Centre want to help these become a reality. DISCIPLINE is the bridge between your goals and your accomplishments, so removing any interference will make discipline easier. Your body has an amazing internal communication system called the NERVOUS SYSTEM, which is constantly at work, telling your body what it needs to do. Your spine plays a crucial role in not only protecting the nervous system, but providing the perfect highway for that communication to travel from the brain to the body.
Often enough, our everyday stresses lead to compensation and changes in the spine, thus changing the normal course of that vital communication. This then leads to not only pain or discomfort, but normal functions in the body become DYSfunctions. As a result of these dysfunctions, many imbalances occur in the body, especially in the area of body chemistry. Hormones are an essential substance that your brain uses to tell your body what to do and with a misaligned spine, hormone levels are subject to imbalances. Your body is reliant on hormones to burn energy, so when they aren’t functioning properly, it makes it more difficult to lose weight and see the effects of your physical activity. Your sleeping pattern is dependent on specific hormones in your body, so with an imbalance of these hormones, you’ll find it is more difficult to sleep or have a more restful sleep. Hormones regulate your immune system, so without proper function and communication, you wouldn’t be able to fight off disease as well as you should, leading to increased medication use and higher incidence of disease. Lastly, hormones regulate STRESS. Chiropractic adjustments have shown to reduce stress hormones in the body, reducing feelings of stress and anxiety.
With this fresh start, you deserve to be at your best, and chiropractic adjustments are essential in removing the interferences that stand in your way. Our chiropractors would love to see your resolutions become a reality, so that you can be more present at work, at school and with your loved ones.
