Chiropractic Excellent For Fibromyalgia, because of the pain and stress relief which it offers.

The pain of fibromyalgia can be frustrating for many people. It often includes pain throughout the entire body. Chiropractic is becoming a popular choice for the treatment of this disorder. People prefer chiropractic matteo#pain

Chiropractic is often considered an alternative treatment but is becoming more accepted by the mainstream medical community. Almost 20 percent of Americans have used a chiropractor during their lifetime. 80 percent of those that saw a chiropractor reported significant pain relief, better function and an improved sense of wellbeing. Chiropractic provides excellent relief in a short period of time and helps fibromyalgia patients enjoy a better quality of life.

Chiropractic is based on the theory that misalignments in the skeletal structure cause interference with the nervous system and result in pain and disease. When the skeletal structure is in its normal alignment, the body is better able to function better. The nervous system is the master system in the body and controls every cell and organ in the body. Misaligned spinal bones can result in pressure on the delicate nerves in and around the spine resulting in this dysfunction.

Chiropractors are experts at locating and correcting these imbalances in the skeletal structure. There are a range of techniques which are used to accomplish this. Spinal manipulation involves a high velocity, short lever thrust to the problem area in the skeletal structure. Chiropractors call this an adjustment. People often report hearing a popping or cracking sound when being adjusted. This might sound scary to some people, but it is a healthy release of nitrogen gas within the joint. People often report immediate relief following an adjustment.

In recent times, more fibromyalgia patients are finding their way to the chiropractic office. Fibromyalgia causes various tender points throughout the body. This causes people to suffer with neck pain, back pain and arm and leg cramps. Fibromyalgia patients find relief of these symptoms when seeing the chiropractor. Chiropractic adjustments to the neck, back, arms and legs help to reduce the widespread pain that is felt throughout the body.

Fibromyalgia sufferers are known to suffer from spinal stenosis which is a condition in the upper cervical spine. This has been known to result in compression on the coverings around the spine known as the meninges. Chiropractic adjustments of the neck and head help to remove this compression which can alleviate the widespread symptoms associated with fibromyalgia. Numerous studies validate the effectiveness of chiropractic care for fibromyalgia patients.

Does Diet Cause Depression?

Like heart disease, depression is associated with low-grade inflammation, endothelial dysfunction, and worse lipid profiles that suggest a poor diet as an underlying cause. Existing research has shown increased fast food consumption is associated with a greater risk for depression. On the other hand, the Mediterranean diet has been observed to reduce depressive symptoms. According to researcher Dr. Almudena Sanchez-Villegas, “It is difficult to be sure that the diet is responsible for depression – it could be that depressed people make bad food choices. Other study problems include ‘confounders’ which may influence dietary habits, such as marital status, exercise, alcohol (or smoking), medical conditions and social networks. Or simply genetics. To address these issues we need long-term, randomized clinical studies similar to ones successfully conducted for diet and cardiovascular disease risk. Only then will we really understand the impact of diet of depression.”

Exercise: Losing Weight May Improve Cognitive Function

matteo_chairA preliminary study on mice indicates the presence of excess body fat stimulates an inflammatory reaction that damages neural synapses in the brain, resulting in decreased cognitive function. Researchers found that when the excess fat was removed (either surgically or through a combination of diet and exercise), the inflammatory response diminished and cognitive function appeared to improve.

Mental Attitude: Prevent Burnout

 Burnout is described as a syndrome of emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and job dissatisfaction. Teachers appear to be especially susceptible to burnout and this has resulted in poor classroom performance, more days missed from work, and high turnover rates in the profession. In this study, teachers were taught transcendental meditation and were followed for four months. Each participant meditated at least once per day, with half meditating at least twice per day. The researchers reported significant improvements in perceived stress, burnout, and depressive symptoms
