Heart & Blood Pressure
Can Upper Cervical Care Help the Heart and Blood Pressure?
A natural approach to blood pressure treatment.
Approximately 30% of adults in Australia suffers with high blood pressure. A much smaller but still significant number of people suffer with low blood pressure. Alarmingly, the number of deaths attributed to blood pressure and heart disorders rose 56% (!) from 1994 and 2004 … and that is despite billions of dollars spent on prescription medications.
There has to be another approach to blood pressure treatment!
A Natural Solution – The Role of the Upper Neck in Blood Pressure Treatment
A study in the Journal of Human Hypertension revealed that an Upper Cervical (neck correction had the same effect as two prescription-strength medications. Experts believe that this is due to the effect that misalignment of the atlas (C1, or first vertebra in the neck) has on the vagus nerve (pronounced “vegas” as in “Las Vegas”). The vagus nerve is a branch of the brainstem, which controls every organ in your body including your heart, kidneys and a little organ called the carotid body – all that regulate blood pressure.
The atlas vertebra supports the weight of your skull and allows you to rotate your head. The tradeoff is that its mobility makes it susceptible to injuries. If the atlas is misaligned, it can cause irritation to the vagus nerve or the the brainstem itself, which regulates the vital life functions of your body. Unfortunately, most people do not experience any initial symptoms when their atlas misaligns. As a result, they do not seek care for the problem until their symptoms escalate to such a degree that they never link their current health – especially high blood pressure – to an old injury that affected their neck.
When a gentle and non-invasive Upper Cervical correction is made and the atlas is properly repositioned, brain to body communication is restored and the body being to heal itself.
Dr George Bakris, a medical doctor and study leader reported, “This procedure has the effect of not one, but two blood-pressure medications given in combination. … and it seems to be adverse-event free. We saw no side effects and no problems.”
That deserves repetition: “It seems to be adverse-event free. We saw no side effects and no problem.”
Have You Tried Upper Cervical Care to Help Your Blood Pressure Treatment?
The purpose of Upper Cervical care is to correct misalignments of the upper neck. Although it does not mean that all types of blood pressure disorders are caused by misalignments in the upper neck, this study demonstrates that there is hope for people who want alternatives to prescription medication.
