Chiropractic and Diabetes: The Surprising Connection
Do you know how many people born in the year 2000 will suffer from diabetes? The answer to this question is very disturbing. One out of every three men and two out of every five women born in the year 2000 will suffer from diabetes in their lifetime. Also diabetes is the fifth deadliest disease in the United States and is a growing epidemic.
How can chiropractic help? Chiropractic care can make a very important contribution to the wellness protocol that helps people diagnosed with diabetes. You may be asking yourself what the back has to do with all of this. If a person has an interrupted nerve supply from their upper neck or middle back (which are two areas that supply the pancreas) the pancreatic function suffers and does not function at 100%.
This reduction in function may be seen in its ability to produce enzymes to digest proteins, fats and carbohydrates, or maybe insulin production, or both. When this occurs blood sugar and digestion become unbalanced which results in either diabetes or hypoglycemia.
By allowing your chiropractor to remove the interference from your nervous system you can be reassured that your body will be performing at its maximum. Along with chiropractic adjustments your chiropractor may recommend changes to your diet and exercise routine. All of these things combined will allow you to hopefully avoid this growing epidemic.
So the next time you hear your family or friends talking about diabetes ask them if they have recently visited their chiropractor.
