Symptom of the week: Depression/Mental Health

I bet you didn’t know…

Over a forty-year period, Doctors of Chiropractic and chiropractic schools operated nearly two hundred hospitals. They were built on the principal that chiropractic care, a healthy, nutritious diet, exercise, fresh air and sunlight, had powerful healing effects.

What especially amazed clinicians were the beneficial effects chiropractic had on those suffering from “mental and emotional disorders.” Chiropractic care was especially helpful for people who suffered from anxiety, “nervous disorders” (as they were then called) and more severe forms of emotional illness.

In time the chiropractic profession owned and operated two hospitals devoted to mental health: Clear View Sanitarium and Forest Park Sanitarium, both in Davenport, Iowa. Over a 40-year period, the chiropractic hospitals had greater success than the state mental hospitals.

The results so impressed North Dakota circuit court judge A.W. Ponath that he consistently refused to send a patient to the state mental hospital unless they first spent time in the chiropractic institution.

Why? Because without drugs, surgery (pre-frontal lobotomies) and electric shock therapy, chiropractic promoted real brain health and had a greater healing success rate.

Today, chiropractors see many patients suffering from anxiety, depression, addiction, ADD, ADHD, autism, and other conditions related to a dysfunctioning nervous system.

Chiropractors are specially trained to locate nerve interference (spinal nerve stress) and release or correct it. Once the interference is released in your nervous system, your brain is able to communicate with all your body systems – your immune, digestive, circulatory, endocrine, muscular systems and the rest, to help you function closer to your potential and improve your natural healing ability. Everything we experience is processed through our nervous system. When our perception of the world is distorted by nerve interference, it compromises our ability to respond appropriately.

Every one of us in this (often) stress-filled world needs to see a Doctor of Chiropractic for a chance to enjoy some drug-free healthcare and less stress in their lives – it could make a big difference for your physical and mental health.
