When our bodies are under stress for extended periods of time, this mechanism in the body can start to dysfunction, which can lead to problems within us. Symptoms (pain, GI problems, lack of sleep, etc.) and dysfunction in our body happen when our body is overloaded, and loose the ability to maintain this balance that we’re supposed to have.
Chiropractic care has a direct affect on this mechanism in the body. When you are getting adjusted, it helps to re-calibrate the stress response in the body - we essentially lessen the output of stress hormones in the body so your body is better equipped to function better. This enables the hypothalamus to do it's job of "keeping the peace" in your body and sets the stage for good health.
