Chiropractic IS Anti-Aging!!
By Dr. Brenda Kingen

While many people still believe that chiropractic care is only for people with bad backs or neck pain, modern research is growing about the true value of scientifically specific chiropractic adjustments. This is one reason why millions of children under the age of 15 are adjusted every single week. Throughout chiropractic’s 120year history even infants and toddlers have received adjustments to increase immune function and overall health status. Research is now showing us one more benefit of chiropractic care: Chiropractic adjustments prevent the degenerative progression of aging!

Physical nerve stress occurs when the spinal bones are twisted or thrown out of alignment. This is caused every day by macro traumas such as falls, car accidents, and sporting activities. Micro traumas such as bad posture, repetitive movements, and poor sleeping habits can damage the spine and nervous system as well. Physical nerve stress causes a deficiency in healthy brain-body signaling and an increased release of the stress hormone cortisol. This disrupts the body’s ability to heal. Chiropractic adjustments remove this built-up pressure on the nervous system, allowing the body to heal as it was designed.

A landmark collaborative study performed at the University of Lund in Sweden measured levels of thiol, a primary antioxidant responsible for repairing DNA. Thiol levels are a measure of overall human health status and show a direct correlation to our future lifespan and how we are aging. In other words, lower blood thiol levels result in faster aging and increased susceptibility to disease, whereas, increased blood thiol levels reduce both aging and the disease processes. The study showed that long-term subjects under chiropractic care demonstrated dramatically higher than average thiol levels than patients with no chiropractic care. This study confirms what chiropractic has been diligently educating the public for over 120 years: rather than resorting to drugs and surgery, chiropractic adjustments positively influence our body chemistry (thiol and countless other hormones) that dramatically regulate optimal body function.
