What would happen if you plugged 10 appliances in one outlet and turned them all on at the same time? You'd blow a circuit, right? Well, the same thing could happen if you surge your 'nerve circuits' with too much STRESS...
Picture your nerve system as an electrical outlet with multiple stresses plugged in. Turn on all those stresses at the same time and POW, you'll quickly overload your system, blow a circuit and fry your state of health! Chiropractors call this situation a subluxation. Depending on what nerves (circuits) are involved, you can experience symptoms from mild aches and pains to more significant health problems like high blood pressure (Journal of Human Hypertension 22,1 G Bakris, MD et al). So how can you avoid the dangers of stress surge?
Although it's impossible to eliminate all stress from your life, you can stay ahead of their negative, accumulative effects with regular chiropractic care. Your chiropractor performs his or her job much like an electrician... skillfully checking your nerve system for overloaded circuits and turning them back on so you won't experience an interruption in your state of health and wellness. When it comes to basic, preventative care, nothing beats keeping your power on.
