The nervous system is a complex and intricate network of wires that coordinates all of the functions in the body. Our nervous system is protected by a bony structure that we know as the spine. Within the spine there are multiple sections that work together to provide structural support, protection for the central nervous system, and flexibility for day to day physical activity.
When there is a Structural Abnormality within the spine, instead of protection of the nervous there is obstruction of and friction on the wires that coordinate the functions of our body.
The digestive system has so many of these wire connections that some researchers call the gut our second brain. This is why Structural Abnormalities within the spine can cause secondary effects in our stomachs. Similar to the USB wires that charge our smartphones and tablets, the wires in our body provide a source of power as well as an avenue for information exchange.
So what happens to the gut when the wires that feed into the area are obstructed?
- decreased motility
- damage to intestinal linings
- gut flora imbalance
Common secondary conditions include:
- chronic fatigue
- suppressed immunity
- irritable bowel syndrome
While there are many other factors involved with gut health (sorry, you shouldn’t eat a dozen Krispy Kreme donuts every day!), without a healthy connection between your gut and your nervous system your gut health will be severely limited.
