Had to share this great article about how chiropractic goes far beyond neck and back pain relief.
I was less than a year into practice when a patient named Ray began telling me how much his marriage had improved since beginning Chiropractic care. He pulled me to the side of my open adjusting room, bent over my shoulder, and whispered in my ear that it was neither a psychological or emotional issue he had overcome. Chiropractic had dramatically improved his sex life! Ray’s sex life, non-existent since having his prostate removed 4 years prior to beginning Chiropractic, had returned.
Chiropractic helps men get an erection! And scientific evidence supports that outcome.
Cortisol levels decrease testosterone and destroy sex drive. Being capable of sexual performance requires proper amounts of blood flow to the pelvic area and genitals. Normal body functions are altered when your nervous system is in a state of sympathetic overload, known commonly as a physiological state of fight or flight.
Research shows that a vertebral subluxation increases sympathetic overload (dominance), thus increasing a release of cortisol. The cortisol release decreases sex hormones, sex drive, and normal sexual functions.
A pharmaceutical company invented Viagra to improve heart function. The drug promoted increased blood flow and ended up creating the side effect of increased male arousal. Now, Viagra makes 50 billion dollars a year.
While the drug grew in popularity and profitability, many men reported unfulfilling sexual experiences with their partners. These men described the physical experience as feeling fake and inauthentic, as if their sexual instrument was not even attached to their body.
Research done in 2009 and in 2011 proved that vertebral subluxation directly relates to an increase in cortisol.
A Chiropractic adjustment balances cortisol levels by decreasing sympathetic dominance and stress hormones. The result speaks for itself in a variety of health benefits, including increased libido and sexual satisfaction.
Many of life’s greatest gifts and pleasures become significantly enhanced through the power of Chiropractic care.
