It's Feb 3rd, 2018 and here's a recovery update from the week after my hospital release. I was admitted for Sepsis due to a bladder infection complication that progressed to infecting my blood with two bacteria. Click this link for the original full story...https://youtu.be/93pF92C8dsY
Along with Faith, clean plant-based eating, rest and exercise a very important part of my healing has been Chiropractic Care at Cascade Chiropractic in Folsom, CA with Race and Sara Irby.
Just after my first chiropractic adjustment from Race this week I felt my body shift from a feeling of fight or flight (sympathetic activity) to rest and repair (parasympathetic response). Now I could finally be in a state of healing and repairing my body. I'm so thankful for his healing hands.
Race explained to me how these systems work and here's what I now know to share with you...
The Autonomic Nervous System in the body is comprised of the Sympathetic Nervous System (SNS) and the Parasympathetic Nervous System (PNS) along with the Enteric Nervous System. It operates through a network of neurons inside the vertebral column. The SNS is usually activated in response to stress or anything your body may perceive as threatening such as pain. It responds as a fight or flight mode and increases production of cortisol levels, pupil dilation, increase heart rate and blood pressure, and sweating.
This is when chiropractic adjustments have been known to affect the autonomic nervous system by reducing the firing of the pain receptors. Thus shifting the bodies electrical neuron response from sympathetic to parasympathetic and allowing the body to rest and repair. The resting state is highly supportive of the immune system needed in defense of illness and disease.

Super Blessings, Gail
