Natural Treatment for Stress Relief
Before you can understand how to treat stress, it’s important to understand what causes stress and how it affects your body. The nervous system helps our bodies to adapt to its environment. When this system becomes “overloaded”, whether by a single traumatic event or the day-to-day stressors we experience, it starts to function abnormally. Subluxations in the spine can damage your nerves, weaken your health and exhaust your energy stores. Many illnesses and diseases have been related to prolonged stress on the nervous system. Emotional, physical and chemical stressors are what we live with every day.
A natural treatment for achieving stress relief is chiropractic. Chiropractic adjustments have proven effective as a natural way to treat stress because they can help moderate the “tone” of the nervous system, much like a massage affects the tone of muscle tissue. The ability of chiropractic techniques to reduce anxiety levels by removing vertebral subluxations from your spine can improve the function of your nervous system and promote better responses to stress. Acupuncture can also be an effective method to modulate the nervous system and stimulate the brain to produce chemicals that can help your body decrease its stress response.
