Most of us have experienced digestive issues at some point. Abdominal pain, gas, diarrhea, and constipation are some of the most common digestive issues. Certain foods, stress, and bowel infections are examples of some of the things that can trigger digestive issues.
If you eat three meals per day, then you should have one to three bowel movements per day. Going to the bathroom fewer than once times a day can result in a number of health issues including body pain, poor digestion, body odor and bad breath.
How Your Spine Can Affect Your Digestive Health
People who have a misaligned spine are more likely to suffer from IBS, constipation, diarrhea and Crohn’s disease. A misaligned spine can interfere with the way that the spine communicates with the glands, tissues, and organs.
Crohn’s disease is a type of inflammatory bowel condition. It is becoming more common because the western diet is not healthy. Stomach pain and diarrhea are some of the symptoms that Crohn’s disease can cause. Immunosuppressants, antibiotics, and antihistamines are some of the medications that can treat Crohn’s disease.
Unfortunately, many of these medications can cause unpleasant side effects. They may also become ineffective after a while. Many people have to be hospitalized or get surgery. A misaligned spine can put pressure on the digestive system, which can worsen Crohn’s disease.
Chiropractic care may be a safer alternative to medication and surgery. You may notice that your digestion improves after you get a spinal adjustment. If you are in need of a spinal adjustment, then you can contact Silver Chiropractic and Wellness. Dr. Shane Silver is committed to making sure that you are in optimal health.
