Chiropractor Orlando FL Kasey Johnson Adjusting Patient

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

  • Thoughts
  • Traumas
  • Toxins

What Does This Mean In Orlando FL?

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:

  1. Thoughts: Negative self-talk, emotional trauma, anxiety from a stressful job/relationship, etc
  2. Traumas: Birth trauma, a slip and fall, physical changes that occur during pregnancy, etc
  3. 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 in Orlando FL 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).
