Continuing on what I shared in my last post, subluxations can truly increase your risk of heart disease. According to ongoing research, subluxations disrupt normal nerve flow to vital organs including the heart. Without proper nerve flow, two main things happen:
It is real. Subluxation is near the top of the list of factors that increase the risk of heart disease. If you have a subluxation affecting nerve flow to your heart and related tissues, you may experience abnormal heart rhythm, poor circulation to the arteries that supply blood to the heart muscle, abnormal heart electrical activity, increased blood pressure, and a predisposition to sudden death due to heart attack.
There are key methods to reducing your risk of heart disease, including quitting smoking, reducing your weight, starting a cardiovascular exercise program, and modifying your eating habits.
From a chiropractic perspective, you can also reduce and eliminate subluxation and retain an optimal spine and nerve system. I recommend that everyone find a chiropractor that they trust and establish an adjustment schedule to keep their spine properly aligned and subluxation-free.
