You may or may not know that the body is self healing and self regulating. But what does that mean? It means that if you cut your finger, the body will know what to do. It will coagulate the blood and make new skin. The healing is NOT due to the bandaid or the Neosporin you put on there. Of course you can go ahead and put the Neosporin and the band-aid to protect yourself from infection. Another example is if you step outside and it’s cold you will start to shiver. If it’s hot you’ll start to sweat. Your body is very smart and knows exactly what to do.
So what system is responsible for doing this? Your nervous system! Your brain keeps the balance or the homeostasis by signaling down the spinal cord and through approximately 45 miles of nerves that travel through your body. As long as the brain can effectively communicate with the body then you will be healthy and experience optimal health. This is what I do as a chiropractor. I ensure that your body does what it’s supposed to do when it’s suppose to do it.
Understand that the greatest doctor lives inside of you. I simply clear the pathway and your innate intelligence does the rest.
You may be asking how interference can occur in the nervous system. Well STRESS happens to us all. At some point we all experience some form of physical stress, emotional stress and/or environmental stress. Stress causes muscles to contract, these are very muscles that attach to your spine and structure. And when the muscle tighten up they pull on your spine creating the misalignments that put pressure on nerves.
At first you may feel stiff, then sore, then achy and later you may experience more severe symptoms such as sharp pain, numbness, tingling and burning. This should be a clue that you need to get to your chiropractor’s office. Of course I educate my patients on the importance of prevention. I want to see you before any of these symptoms begin. As you know, an ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure.
In the functional medicine side of my practice I examine your nutritional needs, exercise routines, stress management techniques, sleep restoration patterns.
I’m all about taking a natural holistic approach and getting to the root cause of your health challenges so we can reverse and prevent further degeneration.
So if you’re injured, in pain or you know it’s time to make a lifestyle change, call 305-271-7447.
After all in order for you to Manifest Your Epic Life, you must first have epic health.
I’m Dr. Aixa…Adding years to your life, and life to your years!
