A chiropractic adjustment changes body chemistry, which helps promote weight loss.
To lose body fat while gaining and keeping muscle requires proper body chemistry. To balance body chemistry hormones must also be balanced. The spine directly effects the hypothalamus, which is the beginning of the autonomic nervous system that controls all major hormones including those that deal with weight loss and muscle gain. Interference in the central nervous system by spinal misalignments triggers an increase in stress hormones and a decrease of growth hormones. In turn, this reduces amino acid breakdown and the ability to recycle amino acids from the blood.
The breakdown of muscle and the loss of fat are mediated by hormones. Chiropractic adjustments help balance good hormones and decrease bad hormones through the spines direct relationship with the brain.
It doesn’t matter how well you eat, it can’t force the body to spare muscle or manipulate fat stores when hormones are out of balance.
Many people that receive chiropractic adjustments find it easier to lose fat and gain muscle using their previously established regimen of diet and exercise.
Creating a subluxation free environment, which is what chiropractors do, empowers the body to balance hormones and improve overall wellness from the inside out.
For the people that need more science.
A study published in 2011 explained that a specialized group of hormones play
a significant role in why Chiropractic adjustments achieve such significant health results.
Hormones serve as chemical messengers that secrete directly into the blood and before being carried to organs and tissues to help direct function. Any procedure that influences hormones will powerfully and directly influence all bodily functions. Optimal health and performance only occurs when hormones are balanced and coordinated.
Research published in 2009 from Johns Hopkins University listed a group of symptoms or
conditions linked directly to the increase of a specific hormone called noradrenaline.
The list includes: cancer, bipolar disorder, excessive body weight, hypertension, type 1
autoimmune diabetes, type 2 diabetes, glaucoma, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis,
asthma, and immune system function. One of the more notable symptoms linked to increased noradrenaline levels is excessive weight gain. Many patients of either gender
have experienced some form of weight loss after starting Chiropractic care. Adjustments
help restore hormonal balance and produce favorable health changes ranging from weight loss to improved overall function in the body. Chiropractic delivers much more than relief from back or neck pain. Balanced hormones through the power of an adjustment helps maximize every lifestyle and health change adopted by a patient.
Chiropractic helps balance hormones by reducing central nervous system dysfunction that exists due to vertebral subluxation. Science proves that chiropractic adjustments lower stress
hormones while helping coordinate and balance other chemical messengers through improved brain and organ function.
