                          Will Everyday Stress Finally Do You In?

We're surrounded!  Surrounded by stress, that is.  Stress at work, stress at home, it really is the new epidemic.  
Stress is a normal part of life and a certain amount of stress is the stimulant we need to achieve our goals.  It's when stress becomes constant that our bodies become overwhelmed and strained.
When stressed, our bodies release adrenalin and a series of reactions take place.  Heart rate increases, muscles tense, blood pressure rises, pupils dilate, your body jumps to attention preparing to fight or retreat.  The body also shuts down functions not needed for immediate survival, such as the immune and digestive systems, choosing instead to funnel all available energy to the situation at hand.
This response is critical to surviving any dangerous situation; however, the body reacts to physical, emotional and chemical stress in all the same way-regardless of whether you are in the path of a speeding car or struggling with a conflict at work, your body jumps to attention preparing for your next reaction.  If stress continues over a period of time, the body gets locked into this defense reaction and it's this long term stress that causes your body to adapt in ways that are unhealthy.  The Centers for Disease Control sights a significant link between stress and the leading causes of death; heart disease, cancer, lung ailments, accidents, cirrhosis of the liver and suicide.
Most likely, you've never considered chiropractic for stress-relief.  Many people think of chiropractors as back and neck doctors when we are actually doctors of the nervous system.  To completely comprehend the link between chiropractic, the nervous system and stress relief, we must first understand how the body works.  
Each of us is born with an innate intelligence that keeps us functioning every minute of our lives.  This intelligence is far superior than our educated minds.  Although you didn't consciously tell your body how it needed to perform today, among its long list of accomplishments, it will digest your morning breakfast, provide the energy for your morning run and heal yesterday's paper cut.  All this is accomplished through your nervous system, which is the master system of the body, controlling and coordinating every function of your body.
One major cause of physical stress is vertebral subluxation complex, the technical term used to refer to misalignments of the spine.  Spinal misalignments interfere with the nervous system, causing stress on the body, as well as compromising the body's ability to adapt to stress.  Untreated, they can lead to any number of conditions including headaches, digestive problems, back and neck pain, decreased immunity and many more.  The job of the chiropractor is to remove these subluxations with an adjustment, relieving the stress to the nervous system and allowing the body to function at its full potential.  
While many people resort to treating symptoms with medications, this does nothing to correct the underlying cause of their problem.  Chiropractic itself doesn't treat these conditions, but rather removes the stress from the nervous system, allowing the body to function better.  Then we watch as the body miraculously heals itself!
When this happens, we see miracles.  We have had patients that were told they were infertile who were able to conceive after correcting the subluxations in their spine.  Children suffering from chronic ear infections no longer needed their antibiotics.  Migraine sufferers were able live an active life without pain medications.
Regular chiropractic adjustments are the ultimate stress-relieving technique.  Removing subluxations ensures that you are not only getting relief for your symptoms but are correcting any underlying conditions that may be hindering your body's performance.

Being an Olympic level strength coach I think I may have a liltte more experience in this area.Well if the US military are doing it then it must be right . because they never doing anything that is bad for their military . like agent orange!Most top level coaches do not use situps anymore. I lecture at conferences around the US and the general consensus amongst the coaches is that they should be avoided.Maybe you should like up the research. Go to pubmed and type in Stuart McGill.

A cervical asuedtmjnt would have been perfect to demonstrate. It would have been better if the Oz would not have propagated that asuedtmjnt hurt. Did you see the audience members cringe witht he asuedtmjnts?The stigma of an asuedtmjnt causing pain really needs to end, and Dr. Oz poking fun at it does nothing but continue the misinformation.

Massage is good for relaxation and cuciilatron. Circulation is good for the heart cause it gets the blood flow going at a good rate and cuciilatron helps move toxins out of the body as well as break down(not get rid of) fat deposits which are toxins. Circulation stimulates the brain adn increases brain activity. Relaxation helps with various body functions and the best thing about massage is that there is no side effects and it will help you not hurt. look into AMTA.com.

Now this is not science, this is a seurvy what's your point here interviewer? People don't need to (and don't want to) wait for so-called scientific evidence to feel better. As Michael Dobbins, DC says (paraphrased) show me a study with a certain outcome, then give me 15 minutes on Google and I'll show you a study that concludes the opposite outcome. http://btffkaw.com [url=http://wvmocumbn.com]wvmocumbn[/url] [link=http://yuyztkp.com]yuyztkp[/link]

Well put, Dr. D'Aquila. If we all had to wait to do what double blind rozadmined studies tell us what to do, none of us would ever get pain relief.I would imagine that the producers of the show told him that he had to put that disclaimer in there for some reason.Dr. Lloyd
