Anxiety and Depression Posted on January 10, 2018 Hello ladies and gentleman, today’s video blog is about chiropractic care, the proper expression of your nervous system and things like anxiety and depression. Now, for those people that suffer from anxiety and depression, I feel for you. By all reports, that is a very very debilitating condition, there is hope though. There is hope through logic and there is hope through research and chiropractic care. Now it is important to understand that there is a variety of different reasons why a person can feel anxiety and depression. The one commonality that the person has altered neurochemistry. Neurochemistry is a big fancy word for the chemicals that cause things to happen in your body…such as the way you feel. All of your emotional states are determined by chemistry. Now, these are made up of a variety of different things. The food that you take in is chemistry, that’s broken down and it helps to create the neurochemistry that dictates your mood. You take a pill, that helps you feel a particular way it alters the chemistry in your brain, and you feel and act a different way. Everything that you take into your body is chemistry. So take in the right stuff, be very very careful about what you take into your body. Now the other thing is that your brain and your brain stem specifically is what produces neurochemistry. So, the research is clear, if you have misalignment’s in your upper cervical spine it can alter neurochemistry, which in turn alters the way you feel. So, there are many many research studies that show that if you have misalignment’s in your upper cervical spine it can change the way that you feel and may induce you towards anxiety and depression. Again, this is not the only reason why it can happen, but we do want to be very very clear with people. If you suffer from things like anxiety, depression or even insomnia, please go to a chiropractor that is very well trained in upper cervical subluxations and corrections. That’s really really important. Thankfully, we’ve got a lot of training in that here at The Life Lounge Chiropractic and Health centre in Burlington, Ontario. But please if you have altered chemistry in your body, if you have conditions like this, please get your nervous system checked. The nervous system is the master control system and there is no way that you can be the person that God created you to be if your nervous system isn’t clear and free from interference. My name is Dr Brad Deakin, I’m coming to you from The Life Lounge Chiropractic and Health centre in Burlington, Ontario.
