When our bodies and minds face stressful situations, thoughts or memories, our nervous system (autonomic) shuts down digestive and reproductive function. This is part of our body’s process to help us react quickly to physical danger and should end once the threat is gone. However, if our system gets stuck in this state of nerve (autonomic) stress – whether through neurological dysfunction or structural damage to the spine – our digestive and reproductive systems remain compromised.
Band-aid solutions to digestive discomfort
Commonly, when we face problems in our digestive tract, we try antacids, laxatives, and digestive enzymes. However, if the problem is due to a neurostructural dysfunction, the issue will not resolve, or may even worsen over time, displaying other, secondary conditions related to the reproductive organs and hormones unless the underlying process is also addressed.
These secondary conditions may include: indigestion, heartburn, acid stomach, food sensitivities, constipation, diarrhea, bloating, and irritable bowel.
Real solutions to digestive difficulties
Instead of treating the symptoms, we correct the underlying neurostructural dysfunction behind the digestive discomfort and other related secondary conditions. Our approach also uniquely helps the nervous system better adapt to future stressors, decreasing the need to develop future sensitivities.
When we get to the root of things, you can resolve the challenges and live an amazing life.
