Chronic Fight or Flight? Here is how Chiropractic helps!

If you don't prime your mind, the environment will do it for you.

Balancing your thoughts and emotions is crucial to healing. Stored trauma can have a detrimental affect on the nervous system. These affects come when the body is in a chronic fight-or-fight state, or sympathetic state.

What type of symptoms can arise when in a chronic fight-or-flight state?

  • difficulty sleeping
  • increased anxiety
  • digestive issues
  • increased headaches/migraines

What can throw your body into a fight-or-flight (sympathetic) state?

  1. Thoughts
  2. Traumas
  3. Toxins

What does this mean?!

Everyday stressors (physical, mental, and chemical) can lead the body to be in a sympathetic (fight-or-flight) dominant state. Here are some examples of each:

  • Thoughts:
    Negative self-talk, emotional trauma, anxiety from a stressful job/relationship, etc
  • Traumas:
    Birth trauma, a slip and fall, physical changes that occur during pregnancy, etc
  • Toxins:
    Moving into a home with mold, cleaning with toxic chemicals, consuming foods high in pesticides, etc

What happens to the body in a fight-or-flight state?

This high-stress state can lead to so many negative health effects, such as a decreased mental state. In order to have proper responses like restorative sleep, optimal digestion, and increased immune system function, the body has to be in a parasympathetic (rest and digest) dominant state.

Chiropractic care and network spinal works directly with the nervous system. It assists the body in moving from a sympathetic (fight-or-flight) state to a parasympathetic state (rest and digest).
