Most people do not realize that chiropractic doctors are trained as doctors of the nervous system. The brain and the spinal cord and the 31 pairs of nerves that enter and exit your spine control every cellular function in your body. The brain is dependent upon a healthy blood supply containing fuel in the form of glucose and/or fatty acids, oxygen, and multiple micronutrients. The brain is 80% fat by dry weight and is 85% water. Therefore, proper healthy fat intake and hydration are critical to its optimum function.
Conditions like ADHD, anxiety, autism spectrum, depression, insomnia, brain fog, PTSD, TBI, dementia, and Alheimer’s have one thing in common – changes in brain function. These conditions are often related to specific nutritional and hormonal deficiencies/imbalances that adversely affect the neurotransmitters in the brain. Some of the primary neurotransmitters are dopamine and acetylcholine which are stimulatory and GABA and seratonin which are inhibitory. When these neurotansmitters get out of balance, negative psychological and behavioral changes appear.
The nutritional, hormonal, and neurotransmitter imbalances/defciencies can be clearly defined and monitored by specific testing and detailed questionares. Once the imbalances/deficiencies have been determined, proper non-drug interventions can be recommended and implemented. As subsistence and balance are restored, improved sense of well-being, productivity, and optimum function are attainable.
