stressful/demanding environment. For example, increased blood pressure, increased blood sugar, and increased heart rate allows your body to meet the demands of perceived or real stress. The body and brain will begin to defend this new baseline. Stress is anything that is either toxic to your cells or a deficiency in a required nutrient for your mind/body.
stressful environment. This is a predictor of susceptibility to chronic health problem like heart attack, stroke, diabetes, etc.
stress producing nociception (pain and stress response) and increases health producing proprioception. View Picture
health with the assumption that your genes are designed to survive and to thrive. Your genes are not inherently defective resulting in an illness at some point. When your cells donít get everything they need and/or are being poisoned your body is stressed. You body and brain takes measures to keep you alive until you get what you need i.e. nutrients from vegetables or exercise or get away from the poison. A few examples of poison/toxins are a job you don't like, artificial sweetener, pesticides, bad relationships. This leads to early fatigue of your cells and you get some symptom. The 3 areas of focus of the Chiropractor are 1) global and regional movement (particularly spinal movement because of rich amount of nervous connections, 2) ingestion by food, air or skin and 3) emotional state. Stress is caused by being toxic and/or deficient in a required nutrient in one or all three of the above three areas. This leads to stressed cell function and less health with more symptoms. Whereas giving your cells all the genetically needed nutrients and getting rid of all the toxins produces healthy cell function, whole body health and less symptoms.
genes for growth and repair are suppressed and genes for crisis response are becoming more active because of sedentary living, excess carbohydrates and high emotional stress from modern lifestyle. It is the fluctuating epigenetics mirroring the environment that drive chronic health issues not your genes which have not changed in thousands of years. View Picture
healthy and strong with the ability to thrive and survive. Genes respond perfectly to your environment whether by conscious lifestyle choices or uncontrolled environmental stresses. Genes do not change in a few decades or centuries but our modern lifestyle has rapidly changed. We are genetically mismatched with our environment and so we get chronically stressed cell function which leads to cell fatigue and system death. Some examples are diabetes, depression, pain and all the other rapidly increasing chronic "diseases". View Picture
pain. Whether you perceive pain or not, nociception results in your sympathetic nervous system (flight or fright) running. This is your short term survival mechanism to help you run or fight dangerous events - real or perceived. This is hard on your body in the short term and devastating on your body if chronically activated. Spinal subluxation complex stimulates a lot of nociception because spinal joints, muscles, ligaments have a lot of nociceptor nerve endings.

stresses. Two things happen when joints lose their motion and everything dries up. It causes irritation which nociception nerves pick up as stress signals. Secondly, the loss of movement or proprioception (a vital nutrient for the brain) becomes deficient. Subluxated joints cause constant stress on the brain where all nerves eventually end up. When the brain picks up the irritation signal from the body and there isn't any good signal to stop it; the brain thinks itís in danger and starts the survival process. You have only one way your genes have developed over thousands of years to deal with danger and that's flight or fight which is very hard on the entire body. This is needed to survive an immediate threat. Unfortunately your body has not developed a defense for modern stresses and so the constant irritation breaks the body down. Unfortunately the vast majority of the stresses are silent or you just get used to it. Eventually, when there is enough damage you become aware of it and may get pain. Not everybody gets the identical problems because everyone has different stresses and ways to deal with stress. But the problems are common strokes, cancer, heart attacks, high blood pressure, diabetes, pain, cholesterol, depression, low sex drive, etc. View Picture
stressed cells. Conscious awareness is 50 bits or less of information out of the 3,000,000,000,000 (3 trillion) bits the brain processes every second. Lack of symptoms does not indicate health. You can have cancer or diabetes developing without being aware of a problem.
