Crohn’s Disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and Ulcerative Colitis Sufferers Find Natural Relief

A recent study finds there is a fascinating link between these diseases and interference to the nervous system. Crohn’s, IBS, and Colitis affect the digestive tract. Symptoms include pain, cramping, bloating, gas, constipation and diarrhea.
May 8, 2008 - PRLog -- (St. Louis, MO) - CROHN’S DISEASE, IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME, and ULCERATIVE COLITIS plague everyday life for millions of Americans, often despite the use of over-the-counter and prescription drugs. I.B.S. is the most prevalent, affecting one in every five American adults.

According to a recent study, researchers say there is a fascinating link between these diseases and interference to the nervous system from spinal misalignments. Crohn’s, IBS, and Colitis can affect any part of the digestive tract, from the mouth to the anus. Symptoms include pain, cramping, bloating, gas, constipation and diarrhea.

Treatment for these digestive diseases include corticosteroids to control inflammation. While these drugs are considered the most effective, they can cause side effects including greater susceptibility to infection.

Immune suppressing drugs are also used. However, drugs once used to treat these conditions, including Zelnorm, have recently been taken off the market because of their serious side effects also, like heart attack and stroke.

Surgery is an option as well, and is extremely widespread with approximately 23,000 colostomies inserted in this country annually.

Now, more than ever, digestive sufferers are looking for an alternative treatment to ease their symptoms. Upper Cervical Chiropractic care could be that answer for many sufferers. In a recent scientific study, results showed that out of the 17 patients who received specific spinal adjustments, 12 showed long-term and stable remission of their symptoms, and of these, 9 experienced an alleviation effect.

Stacy, 27, an Upper Cervical patient and former IBS sufferer says, “I was a little skeptical at first, but I truly had nothing to lose, so I set up an appointment. Within one month I felt better! My symptoms subsided, my energy level increased and my attitude changed. It’s still hard for me to believe that I felt so differently just a few months ago.”

Although Upper Cervical Chiropractors do not claim to "cure" disease, they do offer to detect and correct spinal cord irritation and reactivate normal transmission of brain messages to the affected parts of the body. “When this happens, the natural self-healing process can begin,” said Dr. Adam Tanase, an Upper Cervical Chiropractor at Big Idea Clinic in Webster Groves, MO.

According to Dr. Tanase, the reason the body is able to begin to heal after this type of adjustment is fairly simple. When the first and second cervical bones (called Atlas and Axis) are unbalanced or out of position, the transmission of critical messages from the brain to virtually any part of the body can be disrupted. Every cell, organ and tissue that is not receiving proper nerve signals from the brain can suffer and begin to degenerate.

Dr. Tanase compares it to the fuse box in your home. If all the lights go out unexpectedly, changing the light bulbs won't do any good. But if you check the fuse box, you'll find that all you need to do is flip a switch.  "A person can continue to take medication for an illness, but if their nerve system is causing the problem because it's irritated or unbalanced, the body will just remain that way, stuck like a broken record, and the healing process will not complete itself," he said.
