Bio Cranial, Chiropractic, and Enzyme Therapy:
Back to Basics
The study of Bio Cranial Therapy, Chiropractic care, and the use of enzyme therapy to support health is a field which considers both the large picture of an individual’s health as well as the intricate details. Our bodies are amazingly complex and interconnected but are also governed by simple, core truths. If the brain is not healthy and communicating properly with the rest of the body, the body’s overall health will suffer. Very simple. If the body is not fed or able to absorb the nutrients necessary to support life, it will suffer and optimal health is impossible. Again, an easily understood truth.
The specific how’s and why’s are much more complex, of course, and doctors like those who practice Bio Cranial, Chiropractic care and enzyme therapy spend years learning and understanding the connections and intricacies of the body.
Bio-Cranial and Chiropractic Overview
This overview will help you understand the basics of Bio Cranial and Chiropractic.
The brain is the central, controlling part of your body: the computer which identifies, schedules, coordinates every interaction within your body and also interprets and reacts to every external stimulus you will ever encounter. Everyone knows this, but because it does its job so effectively the majority of the time, most of us take our brain for granted. Until it doesn’t. When we are injured, have pain, suffer symptoms which impact our lives, we become aware that something isn’t right. This is where the extremely complicated nature of our bodies often becomes apparent.
Finding the source of our discomfort can be seemingly impossible!
Manipulation and the Interconnected Nervous System
In the body everything is interconnected. A pain in your leg could be the result of a pinched nerve in your back. Poor balance could be a symptom of pressure-like stress on your brain from cranial bones that have become misaligned – the Bio Cranial Chiropractor’s specialty! Frequent muscle pain or headaches could indicate a body struggling with digestive and dietary issues. A Bio Cranial Chiropractor wants your body to work well and is equipped with the knowledge to help it do this.
Manipulating the spine to its proper position can ease the pressure off the nerve in your back, allowing proper function of the nervous system and alleviating leg pain. Adjustment of the cranial bones in your skull can likewise decrease the pressure-like stress on the brain and balance to be regained. Enzyme therapy suggested by your chiropractor may give your body enzymes it needs to properly digest food so your body doesn’t need to pull resources from the immune system, resulting in increased organ and muscle stress.
Nutritional Enzyme Therapy
When patient issues do not stem from structural misalignments, they are often found to be tied to poor nutrition. Our bodies are meant to eat fresh, raw food filled with food enzymes but modern lifestyles favor processed, cooked, and enzyme-deficient food. Food enzymes are one type of enzyme and they are present in all raw food for the purpose of aiding digestion.
In short, if the enzymes in food are damaged because they have been heated, removed to aid in food preservation, or missing entirely due to poor nutrition the body must produce and use its own digestive and metabolic (run other body processes) enzymes to digest food rather than the purpose for which they were intended.
Digestion is not as effective. Stress is placed on other systems as the body attempts to compensate for the digestive struggles. Symptoms like heartburn, fatigue, constipation, sore joints, and headaches can indicate an enzyme deficiency. Enzyme supplements recommended for your individual needs, along with dietary modifications can help restore your body chemistry and improve overall health.
Improving Quality of Life
Your quality of life matters, and while your body is designed to heal itself, sometimes it needs help to allow that healing to take place. Chiropractic adjustments to any misaligned bones, including those protective cranial ones, can relieve nerve pressure and facilitate communication from the brain to the rest of the body.
Enzyme therapy attempts to restore the natural body chemistry we are born with that our lifestyles often destroy; allowing our body to power itself by functioning properly so as to support healing. Your Bio Cranial Chiropractor uses the broad spectrum truths of nature and health as well as the intricacies of your individual biochemistry to help you be well.
