Chiropractor Chapel Hill, NC
During times of stress and hardship, many people experience abdominal irritation. As a chiropractic physician with over 25 years of experience, Dr.Oskardmay recognizes the vital role the stomach plays in health and the crucial connection between malaise and abdominal function. Whether hardship comes from physical pain such as back strain, headache or acid reflux, or mental suffering such as anxiety, depression, or loneliness, abdominal malfunction should not be ignored or coated with drugs that may have adverse side effects. At Acupractic Natural Healing Center, Dr. Oskardmay strives to help each person achieve health naturally.
The stomach is the central part of our body and is also the center of the transformation of nutrients. Bacteria in the gut break down nutrients and enzymes assist in the process. Our food choices play a large role in stomach function because each food can benefit or injure these components. Protein and nutrient-rich foods provide many vital building blocks for good health. Probiotic-rich foods such as yogurt and tempeh support gut diversity and assist stomach function. Foods rich in fiber, such as most fruits and vegetables, provide a haven for these beneficial bacteria. Medications such as antibiotics, while sometimes useful, have been shown to reduce healthy gut flora diversity and can create an inflammation-prone gut. Likewise, foods high in sugar, preservatives, trans fats, and other unhealthy substances can also create an unstable digestive system. Dr. Oskardmay will discuss these topics with patients because she recognizes the pivotal role the stomach has in healing and mind-body health.
Chiropractic Evaluation Aides in Determining Where Problems Exist
There are three distinct internal areas of stomach control: myogenic or muscle, hormonal, and neural control. Muscles, hormones, and nerves work together to move food through the digestive system, breakdown the food, and absorb or release it from the body. Symptoms such as constipation, bloating, diarrhea, stomachache, even malnutrition indicate problems in the stomach and connected digestive pathways that need attention. Chiropractic evaluation of the spine and nervous system can help determine where problems exist in the nervous system and muscles.
A licensed chiropractic physician, Dr. Oskardmay, can provide chiropractic adjustments to irritated spinal segments impacting nerves that affect the stomach and digestive system to aid in healing. Additionally, she can apply massage and acupuncture where needed to restore vitality and nerve and blood flow. Stagnation from impaired nerve or muscle function or lack of movement impairs energy flow. In combination with rejuvenating massage and meridian therapy, the chiropractic adjustment supports good qi flow.
A healthy body and mind depend on a healthy stomach and digestive system. This is a central tenet of Chinese Medicine, and Dr. Oskardmay provides guidance and treatment to support the central core.
