indigestion, acid reflux
Did you know that there are nerves from your spine that go to your stomach, gallbladder, intestines, actually every organ in your body! That is why a chiropractic adjustment can help relieve many stomach issues, including heart burn.
We also find that poor diet, carbonated beverages, and stress can cause stomach disturbances. By supporting the digestive system properly, our providers can help you rid the dreaded heartburn and indigestion.
Many people take OTC meds (PPI’s) to put the fire out. But these meds can cause many unwanted side effects down the road. Proton Pump Inhibitors have been linked to dementia because they block an essential motor neurotransmitter to the brain, acetylcholine. These medications were meant to be used short term- 8 weeks duration, but many people take them daily for years.
We offer alternative treatments and nutritional counseling to help “put out the fire” naturally without long-term consequences.
