How Does Chiropractic Help With Gut Health Issues?
Dr. Andrew St. Bernard
Now one of the most prevalent health problems, people are searching everywhere for answers to heal their gut. However, while many are able to see significant improvement with their conditions by making dietary changes, in some cases the problems never seem to resolve completely.
If you find yourself in this category of individuals who has tried almost everything already and still haven’t seen the results you are looking for, this article is for you!
Did you know that Chiropractic care can positively impact your gut health? As early as 1921, Dr. Henry Winsor M.D. decided to see if there as any correlation between diseased organs, the nerves connected to them, and the vertebrae associated with those nerves.
He performed autopsies of 75 human bodies and 22 cats. He found a near 100% correlation between “minor curvatures” of the spine and diseases of internal organs. A later (1968) radiographic study showed that many patients with various internal organ diseases (gallbladder, stomach, pancreas, etc.) had some displacement of specific areas of the spine.
Since specific corrective chiropractic care aims to restore these spinal curves, relieving pressure from the nervous system, it’s no wonder why so many of our patients see dramatic improvement in their gut health!
At Exodus Health Center, your Kennesaw chiropractor, we use the latest digital technology to determine the areas of spinal involvement that are causing or contributing to your poor gut health, and then we formulate a customized care plan specifically to address the cause(s) of the problem.
