Gallbladder Health

The gallbladder is a pear shaped sac that sits on the top of the liver. Bile from the liver is stored in the gallbladder and sent to the intestines after a meal is eaten via cystic duct. Bile is a combination of chemicals that assist in the digestion of fat and absorption of vitamin A, D, E and K.

Cholecystitis is the inflammation of the gallbladder, and is usually caused by gallstones blocking the cystic duct. Gallstones are developed when small crystals of cholesterol form in the gallbladder.  Usually there are a few larger gallstones, but most are small and sand like. In some cases a single stone may be so large that it fills the entire gallbladder.

Gallstones can be extremely painful.  It can also cause nausea, vomiting, low-grade fever, and constipation. For acute Cholecystitis that comes on severely and suddenly, surgery to remove the gallstones is usually performed.

Proper diet and avoidance of damaging drugs, chemicals and a healthy nerve supply are all factors that will help in avoiding gallbladder problems. The brain helps to regulate the gallbladder, making a healthy nerve supply integral in keeping the gallbladder functioning properly. There are thousands of nerve fibers that regulate the gallbladder, and if these fibers become irritated by spinal stress it can lead to increased susceptibility for disease.

Vertebral Subluxations

Misaligned vertebrae that interfere with the nervous system and cause nerve stress are called vertebral subluxations. This interference interrupts the information and energy flow to the various parts of the body and lowers our natural resistance to sickness and disease. Chiropractors are trained to locate and correct vertebral subluxation through examination and spinal adjustment. The adjustments relieve the nerve stress and assist in restoration of body function. Proper functioning of the nervous system through chiropractic treatment is one of the best defenses against conditions and diseases that one would normally not be susceptible to.

The Chiropractic Approach

 Chiropractic is not a treatment for gallbladder problems, however it does assist in raising resistance against the sickness and disease. Spinal nerve stresses damage the nervous system and can lead to disease of all kinds. Chiropractors locate and free the body from spinal nerve stress. Studies have shown that there is a relationship between a healthy nervous system and a healthy body.

Our chiropractic office educates our patients in lifestyle changes that compliment their spinal care. Chiropractic spinal adjustments strengthen areas of the spine and restore impaired nerve flow. Subluxations occur when vertebra misalign irritating delicate spinal nerves. Spinal adjustments remove the nerve pressure and restore function to the body. Chiropractic spinal adjustments by our chiropractors help you live your life to its fullest through a properly functioning nervous system. When your nervous system is functioning properly you express life to your fullest. Chiropractic spinal adjustments enable you to express your God given health potential and to live your life to fullest capabilities. Neck pain, back pain, sciatica, reduced immunity, ear infections, decreased energy, stomach disorders, asthma, allergies, sinus problems, headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, shoulder problems, sports injuries, spinal disc degeneration, osteoarthritis, numbness, pain, are just some of the signs of improper function in the body and conditions that benefit from Chiropractic spinal adjustments. Don't delay and wait for a spinal problem to develop before you seek out Chiropractic care. Get a Chiropractic spinal adjustment and deal with the cause of your problems rather than masking it with medications which often deal just with the symptoms. Whether you are feel great and want to ensure a healthy and fully functional future or if you are in pain and seek the safe and effective proven results of Chiropractic spinal adjustments, you owe it to yourself to have a spinal check up and to start down the healthy road of lifetime Chiropractic care.
