Addiction is a serious problem across America, with addiction ranging from minor issues, such as sugar addictions, to more serious addictions, like drugs and alcohol. Addiction is incredibly harmful and generally leads to poor choices and destroyed lives. In fact, statistics report that over 80% of crimes are linked to substance abuse. Because addiction is so devastating, it is also reported that about 35% of all suicides are related to addiction problems. If you or someone you love is suffering from a serious addiction, there is hope with a Rochester Hills chiropractor.
Addiction and Your Body
The central nervous system is responsible for controlling the function of each system in the body, such as the cardiovascular system, digestive system, and immune system. The spinal cord and brain work in conjunction to send out nerve transmissions to communicate effectively with all parts of the body for proper function. Neurotransmitters that are sent out and received properly will affect how the body works and feels, resulting in optimal function and a feeling of calmness. Without this calmness that comes from the central nervous system functioning at optimal levels, you may begin to feel stressed or anxious, which can lead to addiction that some believe help them cope with negative emotions.
There are a variety of treatments available to help people break free from addiction, such as counseling, medications, or rehabilitation programs. Treatment programs can be effective, as can medication, but they both come with possible risks. Additionally, it can be argued that giving medication to those who already struggle with drug addiction might not be the best method for breaking addictions. Chiropractic care has been shown to be a natural and safe way to beat addictions without added side effects. In fact, a study was conducted on chiropractic care for those in rehab. Some received standard rehab treatment, some received standard treatment and placebo adjustments, while other received addiction treatment alongside chiropractic adjustments. Those who received treatment combined with chiropractic adjustments experienced a 100% success rate in completing their rehabilitation program!
