A new kind of stress threatens our health far more than most people realize. This new stress is directly related to the high-tech, fast-paced world in which we all live. We are all exposed to constant, chronically low levels of physical, chemical, and emotional stress throughout the day. No human organism is designed to withstand this level of constant stress, which manifests itself in damage, degeneration, and disease.
This constant, chronic low level of stress creates excessive over-stimulation of the sympathetic nervous system (survival nervous system) to the point where the brain can no longer handle it or heal or thrive. Brainwave activity shifts, forcing the brain and body to release stress hormones like cortisol, while depleting the brain of healthy, mood-balancing neurotransmitters like serotonin, and beta-endorphins. The result is brain fog, poor memory, poor sleep, poor adaptability, poor health, pain, depression, anxiety, and more.
It is no wonder that,
– Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illnesses.
– Since 1988, the rate of antidepressant use has increased to over 400%.
– Today, 1 in 10 citizens aged 12 and older takes antidepressants.
– For adults over 50, staying mentally fit is now more important than social security and physical health as their top priority and concern.
– More than 2 billion people worldwide currently suffer from brain-related health problems.
People are suffering from brain stress without even realizing it is the root cause of their health issues. All forms of stress cause our brains to go out of balance and rhythm and a brain out of balance always forces the body to go out of balance which manifests in some disease, malfunction, or behavioral problem.
All forms of stress … physical, chemical, or emotional as well as time stress, relationship stress, work stress, money stress – and so on – can be called brain stress. Brain stress is the driving force behind the neurological epidemic we now face – and the result is the multitude of health epidemics ravaging our nation and planet – not only the major epidemics, but also lesser-known epidemics such as migraines, lower back pain, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, insomnia, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, sciatica, and rapid aging.
Do you or someone you know suffer from these effects of brain stress?
In today’s environment, treating the body without treating the brain is like applying a fresh coat of paint to a demolished house; it may look like an improvement from the outside, but the foundation is destined to crumble.
Fortunately, leaders in the field of mind and body health recognized the devastating effects of brain stress years ago and have spent more than two decades developing safe, drug-free solutions-technologies that work by harmonizing the brain, leading to a new state that is the opposite of fight or flight, allowing the brain and body to get to work reversing the damage caused by brain stress and physical stress.
It is well documented and professionally researched that a properly given chiropractic adjustment normalizes and maximizes brain function. The chiropractic adjustment reboots, rebalances, and resets the brain and when the brain is balanced, once again, the body follows, and we call this healing.
