Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) is the name for a group of medical conditions that cause unexplainable fatigue and tiredness. The fatigue may worsen with physical activity or exertion and is a result of no apparent reason. CFS makes one feel tired, saps your inner drive, creativity and reduces the general abilities. The sufferer loses all motivation and zeal, and the condition doesn’t improve with rest. Women are more susceptible to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and the illness usually appears in their 40s and 50s.

When one suffers from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, you may find it difficult to differentiate between ordinary fatigue and the symptoms of CFS. It is a long-term condition and often the symptoms are so severe that you may not be able to accomplish your day-to-day tasks.

Some common symptoms of CFS include:

  • Severe Fatigue
  • Swelling In Lymph Nodes

Chiropractic treatment is very effective in treating the symptoms of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. The chiropractor makes adjustments to relieve back and neck pain, and increases the frequency of neurons, which stops the progression of CFS. The treatment restores the alignment of the body and balances the spine. With the proper alignment of the spine, the muscles and nerves get more blood supply. The entire body feels better with the proper restoration of the blood flow. Any constriction in the nerve flow can affect the muscles, tendons, and organ system and causes pain. Chiropractor treats the spinal imbalance and makes adjustment to upper cervical to treat CFS successfully. Spinal manipulation corrects the vertebrae and helps in eliminating the symptoms. The immune system is improved which also boosts the overall health and well-being of the body. The chiropractors also suggest some lifestyle and dietary changes to the patients of CFS to accelerate the treatment.

For effective treatment, it is crucial that you find an experienced chiropractor who has the knowledge, skill and expertise to do spinal manipulations. The chiropractic care must have all the facilities that are required and must offer clean, hygienic and healthy facilities.

Chiropractic Care For Infertility

by Administrator 12. December 2014 20:41

Infertility is a problem faced by many men and women, and can be a result of weak nervous system, poor nutrition, stress and lifestyle. It is a major health issue found in every one in five couples in the US. Chiropractic care is very helpful in curing infertility and is adopted by many couples.

Causes of Infertility

Some of the major causes of infertility are ovulatory dysfunction, pelvic dysfunction, sperm disorders, abnormal cervical mucus and other unidentified reasons. Even deleterious lifestyle affects the reproductive capacity. Exposure to environmental toxins and certain chemicals, thyroid dysfunction, insulin resistance and nerve dysfunction also lead to infertility in men and women.

Nerve Dysfunction-A possible cause of infertility

In order to be fertile, it is crucial that an individual has hormone balance. The Pituitary gland is the major gland that releases reproductive hormones that further stimulates endocrine glands to release other reproductive hormones. Any blockage in the passage of nerves and spinal subluxations can lead to decline in organ function and imbalance of reproductive hormones, which eventually leads to infertility. By finding subluxation and correcting it, one can treat nerve dysfunction.

How chiropractic care helps in treating infertility

Chiropractic therapy is a safe, natural, and cost effective therapy that successfully enhances the reproductive system. Many couples are turning to this holistic and proactive therapy for treating infertility issues. A chiropractic practitioner assesses and analyzes the patient to find the possible cause of infertility. The practitioners also try to figure out the severity of spinal obstruction due to vertebral subluxation, nerve impingement, etc. so that they can offer appropriate treatment. They also recommend certain radiological tests, X-rays, and other lab tests to find the root cause of infertility. The applied-kinesiology chiropractic test may also be conducted to finally diagnose the cause.

Chiropractic care is a treatment that helps in management of hormones and nerves without any medicines and surgery. It improves the overall wellbeing of the patient. Once the cause of infertility is determined, the Chiropractor carries out spinal adjustments to restore the functions so that the flow of impulses improves and the hormone stability is restored. Chiropractic manipulations help in improving regularity, duration and rhythm of menstrual cycles and normal ovulation. Chiropractic care helps in correcting any distortions in the body and re-aligning the area that leads to fertility.

How Acupuncture Can Help In Smoking Cessation

by Administrator 5. December 2014 20:17

Quitting smoking is a difficult task that requires a strong will power, commitment and determination. Giving up the habit of smoking is usually followed by a period of withdrawal symptoms which can include headache, nausea, irritability, depression, severe cravings and constipation. However the symptoms and their extent varies from person to person depending on their usage, method of quitting and personal reaction to withdrawal from nicotine.

Acupuncture has proved to be a reliable solution for smoking cessation. A number of smokers have found it to be a beneficial treatment and rely on the therapy to reduce the cravings and withdrawal symptoms. Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese practice that involves inserting tiny needles at certain pressure points in the skin. These pressure points when triggered balance the energy in the body and stimulate certain reactions. Cigarettes contain nicotine and other carcinogenic elements and it has been found thatAcupuncture detoxifies the body and reduces the toxins and chemicals in the blood stream. Acupuncture aims at relaxation and detoxification of the body.

During consultation, the acupuncturists will ask details about your smoking history, frequency of smoking and any smoking cessation products that you may have used. Acupuncture is proved to be successful in helping many smokers quit the habit permanently. Every patient is diagnosed individually and the pressure points that need to be triggered depend on the diagnosis.

The acupuncturist inserts fine needles into various points in the body and ears to help with smoking cessation. Certain points in the body that affect breathing such as lungs, airways and the mouth are triggered and small pallets are taped to the Acupuncture points on your ear. During smoking cravings, you can gently press on the pallets to stimulate the points that calm the mind and reduce the craving. The length and the number of treatment sessions required depend upon your diagnosis. A session normally lasts from 5-30 minutes and the patient is usually treated one or two times a week. The patient can also be advised to make certain changes to their diet and lifestyle to enhance the results.
