Chiropractic For Stomach Relief
A-D-J-U-S-T-M-E-N-T spells RELIEF!
It sounds a little different than what we are used to. Remember those old commercials that said ROLAIDS spells relief, and similar claims are made about Tagamet, Zantac, Pepcid AC and many other antacid medications.
But did you know you could (and should) get an adjustment instead? People are often surprised and say
“do you mean that an adjustment could help with my heartburn or acid reflux? I was told I’d have to live with it and take the medication for the rest of my life.”
Simply put, heartburn is a sign that something is not working correctly. Taking an antacid to treat heartburn is similar to responding to a fire alarm by unplugging it. Antacids like Rolaids do not treat the cause of the problem; they only cover up the symptoms.

So, how could an adjustment help your stomach? It’s simple: the nervous system controls and coordinates all functions of the body, including digestion. When the spine is misaligned, the signals to your stomach are not received as well as they should be. This interference is called a subluxation. Dr. Windsor from the University of Pennsylvania conducted research that determined there was a direct correlation between the health of the spine and the health of the internal organs. In a series of studies, he dissected a total of seventy-five human and twenty-two cat cadavers. All cases of spinal misalignment in the mid-thoracic (T5-T9) area had stomach disease.

Research shows that every medication you take may help you in one way and may hurt you another way. Drugs like Tagamet and Zantac “stop digestion of proteins (because they both stop Hydrochloric Acid (HCl) production).” A.C. Millet (Nutrition expert) explains,
“Antacids interfere with HCl release and can upset body chemistry resulting in other problems. Long-term use [of antacids] can lead to serious conditions like gastrointestinal complications.”
The next time you feel like eating a handful of Rolaids, Pepcid AC, or any other antacid, think of the alternatives. Relief from your stomach problems is but one of the many benefits Chiropractic can bring you!

My biggest inspiration and the reason I believe in Chiropractic and the philosophy of helping the body to heal itself continues to be my late mother, Lila Fishel. She passed away from breast cancer in October of 2002. I watched the greatest medical minds in the world be defeated by cancer; it changed my world. Since then I have made a commitment to educate the world about the holistic approach to health and well-being – Chiropractic Medicine.
