Mental Health. The phrase that many people are apprehensive to talk about. However, according to the National Alliance on Mental Health,1 in 5 Americans struggle with some type of mental illness. What's even more shocking is that about 42 million Americans live with anxiety and about 16 million struggle with depression.
Based on those numbers, you're not alone!
Let's begin to normalize talking about mental health and the daily struggles that come with it.
So how do adjustments go hand in hand with easing your anxiety and reducing depression?
At Advanced Rehab & Wellness, we use natural & holistic healing without the need for medications. Dr. Fano's adjustments are a proven method to aid in easing anxiety and stress by releasing the tension held in muscles and the spine to relax the muscles. Many people rely upon and need medicine to control their symptoms, however, a natural holistic approach may help ease their anxiety and stress. Adjustments are proven to aid in triggering hormone production such as oxytocin, neurotensin, and cortisol.
Oxytcoin is nicknamed the "love hormone", which creates feelings of optimism and an increase in trust and self-esteem. It also can help improve digestion, which can be a side-effect of stress.
Neurotensin decreases the pain that comes with stress. Cortisol is responsible for blocking pain and decreasing the early stages of inflammation.
Chiropractic is also a proven solution for headaches and migraines. By adjusting and manipulating the neck and spine, relief can be found when there is a reduction of tension on the spine. The relaxation will decrease muscle spasms and the electrical impulses within the muscles. The lack of tension will also increase blood flow to your brain, thus increasing your mental clarity!
If you, or someone you know, suffer from stress and anxiety consider taking a natural and holistic approach to your symptoms and watch as your body transforms itself so that you may live life to the fullest.
