How to Optimize Your Nervous System
Hi, I’m Dr. Marie Starling
As your Functional Medicine specialist in Denver, we help people like you reach their full potential. I specialize in adjunctive care for internal disorders, autoimmune conditions, IBS, thyroid symptoms, diabetes, and other complex health issues.
The nervous system is in charge of sending messages to and from the brain and spinal cord to all parts of the body. The nervous system integrates everything going on in the body. Your nervous system functioning optimally is a big deal!
The primary area of your central nervous system is in the cervical ppine (neck). The top two vertebrae in the neck, the atlas and the axis protect the base of your brain (brain stem). Misalignment, also called subluxations in these areas affect the function of every organ in your entire body.
Subluxations are mechanical dysfunctions of a bone that block the normal function of the nervous system.
Subluxations can cause inflammation of the joint and nerve root as well as lack of motion which can cause joint degeneration.
Steps To Obtain An Optimal Nervous System
Here are some steps you can take to obtain an optimal Nervous System:
Chiropractic adjustments are important for everyone! Correcting any misalignments, or subluxations in the body restore function and proper communication between the brain and the rest of your body!
Stretch That Body
Stretching increases flexibility and increases your range of motion. It also increases blood flow to your muscles, helps deliver nutrients to your muscles, as well as helps your posture.
Find Time to Exercise
Exercise boosts brain health! It boosts levels of serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine, which can help buffer some effects of stress
Do Some Yoga
A great exercise for your health is yoga—which increases flexibility, balance, body alignment, and so on! Yoga is an ancient form of exercise that improves physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.
