Diabetes is a serious condition that results in inappropriate blood glucose levels in the body. This depends on the insulin levels of the body and how our body reacts to them. Dr Brian Nantais of the Nantais Family Chiropractic from Elevation Health, based in Canada, gets complaints from Diabetes patients. These complaints all talk about the various discomforts that they face and have been suffering for years. People search for cures for Diabetes and ways to maintain its symptoms, and they rely on medications forever to maintain the discomforts of Diabetes. Dr Brian Nantais instead recommends Chiropractic Adjustments for these patients.
He and his former patients firmly believe that Chiropractic Care from an expert is beneficial in controlling the effects of Diabetes on the body. Conditions like Peripheral Neuropathy are associated with further stages of Diabetes. If not maintained, then these symptoms start to affect the whole body. The fight against Diabetes is tough, but people shouldn’t give up.
Let’s look at the two main types of Diabetes that, is Type 1 and Type 2, in details:
- Type 1 also known as Insulin – Dependent Diabetes
- Type 2, also known as Insulin – Resistance Diabetes
Type 1, also known as Insulin – Dependent Diabetes:
This is the early stage of Diabetes and is also diagnosed in children and teenagers. It is a disorder in which the immune system reacts aggressively and inappropriately. Our body’s immune system is meant to fight germs, harmful substances and cell changes that cause us to fall sick. Type 1 Diabetes causes the immune system to attack insulin-producing cells of our body. These cells are found in our Pancreas. This results in a lack of insulin and restriction in its production in our body. It is treated by eternally injecting insulin into our bodies.
Type 2, also known as Insulin – Resistance Diabetes:
Type 2 is a severe further Diabetes stage that is prevalent in the older generation. But with the passage of time and changes in lifestyle, even the younger population is getting diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. The insulin utilization in our Pancreas is restricted, which causes low energy levels in our cells. This condition can progress into Diabetic Ketoacidosis which has complications with the body producing toxic chemicals and symptoms like:-
- Increased thirst
- Urge to urinate frequently
- The sweet scent in breath
While Type 1 Diabetes can be managed by maintaining a healthy lifestyle like – having a balanced diet, exercising regularly, and having an appropriate sleep schedule, type 2 needs insulin medication. It might make you seriously ill if not maintained through Chiropractic Care and other methods.
Now let’s look at How Chiropractic Adjustments can help in reducing the effects of Diabetes:
- It restores the proper functionality of the nervous system
- It promotes proper hormones release
- Restores body motions in case of Peripheral Neuropathy
- Reduces pain-related symptoms
It restores the proper functionality of the nervous system:
Chiropractic Adjustments fix the misalignment of our spinal cervixes. If not fixed, it creates pressure on our nerves which are already under extreme pressure due to blockages from Diabetic effects. This, if not treated, can result in internal bleeding and infections. But the most harmful effect is a blood flow restriction and information around the affected organs. Chiropractic Care removes these blockages and restores the proper functionality of the nervous system.
It promotes proper hormones release:
The blockage in the nervous system and Diabetic symptoms force our body to react differently. The body starts releasing higher amounts of hormones adrenaline, norepinephrine, and cortisol. Primarily cortisol, which is the stress-causing hormone. Chiropractic Care fixes the nervous system’s blockages, restoring the proper link between the organs and the brain. The body starts releasing hormones in the required amount and only when needed.
Restores body motions in case of Peripheral Neuropathy:
As mentioned before, Peripheral Neuropathy is a disorder that follows Diabetes. This restricts motion in our feet, legs, hands and arms by creating burning and tingling sensations. It also inflicts pain if the symptoms aren’t maintained. Chiropractic Care, with its stimulation of the spinal cord and other body parts, restores these restricted body movements and relieves pain.
If you are suffering from Diabetic symptoms and want relief, you must consult Dr Brian Nantais of the Nantais Family Chiropractic from Elevation Health, based in Canada.
