Heart Health at Live Well Chiropractic

stethoscope with heart shapeAfter four decades of fighting heart disease with vast sums of money spent on research, drugs, and treatments, cardiovascular disease is still the #1 killer in the US, claiming 647,000 lives every year. Chiropractic adjustments can help support the cardiovascular system by relieving chest pain, lowering blood pressure, reducing heart rate, and even preventing heart attacks.

A Better Way to Improve Heart Health

Cholesterol has received plenty of negative media over the last decade. Several key studies, however, have shown that cholesterol does not cause cardiovascular problems, as once thought.

Inflammation is actually the culprit. After an injury, the body experiences an inflammatory response, which leads cells to produce cholesterol. Being in a chronic state of inflammation greatly increases your risk of high blood pressure and heart attacks.

The tragedy is that by focusing all our attention on cholesterol, we’ve ignored the real causes of heart disease: inflammation, oxidation, stress, and sugar. Thankfully, these are factors that we can actually control through foods, supplements, and lifestyle changes—none of which have the costs or side effects of medications.

Even minor disturbances in your nervous system can lead to serious health concerns, such as cardiovascular disease. Studies show that upper cervical adjustments can lower your blood pressure as much as taking two doses of blood pressure medication would.

As many as 90% of all cases of heart disease are reversible through lifestyle modification, including exercise, diet changes, and stress reduction. Dr. Kris will teach you simple life changes you can make to live a long and abundant life.
