How can chiropractic care help with leaky gut syndrome?
So you’ve probably been dealing with this leaky gut issue for months to years now. Your quality of life has gone down and your frustration levels have gone up. You’ve probably tried changing your diet, spent a few thousand bucks on supplements and joined fifteen support groups on facebook looking for answers.
I’m guessing you’ve already tried your medical doctor, the testing (blood, stool, saliva, imaging, maybe even the scope) and haven’t gotten any concrete answers but have been given a few prescriptions anyway. You might have even been told it’s all in your head and you’re just stressed and depressed…so here’s a pill for that. If this sounds familiar please, believe me, you are NOT alone. In fact, you are finally in the right spot.
What is Leaky Gut Syndrome
See, leaky gut syndrome (as you know already) is a complex issue and quite frankly, the current medical system isn’t designed to help you. That system is designed to mask symptoms and you’ve been looking for someone to help you find and treat the root cause. So it’s not your fault you haven’t found an answer yet, you’ve just been told to look in the wrong place. We’re so glad you haven’t given up. You just crossed paths with someone who’s going to be able to help you 🙂
The Specific Approach
Enter The Specific approach. Here at The Specific Chiropractic Centers, all we do is search for root causes, and we did deep. What we’ve found is that people, just like you, struggling with leaky gut syndrome (autoimmune disorders, thyroid disorders, and other digestion and metabolic issues) is that the root is often in the brain, the central nervous system.
I’m sure you’ve heard of the “brain-gut” connection (if not, google it and you’ll see what I’m talking about) and know how important the communication between the two is. What we’re finding is that most people suffering like you are actually stuck in hyper mode; we call it “fight or flight mode”. It’s where your brain just won’t shut off and it’s telling your body that you’re in a constant state of stress. Even if you’re trying to be calm, your body is still stressed out. Sound about right?
This is typically why, even though you’ve tried the diets (Paleo, Keto, vegetarian, macro, AIP, vegan, gluten-free etc) there are still these underlying issues that are just not getting better. Well, to confirm your feeling, yes, it is something from within. You’re doing so many things right, you really are. It’s just that no matter how good your diet is if your brain is super stressed then your poor body can only do so much with that food. It’s like, if you’re being chased by a bear, you’re body could care less about that organic salad you just ate. It’s trying to survive and will not use that salad to help you heal unless the threat of the bear is gone.
How We Help
This is how we help. Our testing is designed to do 3 things: 1 – determine if you are stuck in that fight or flight state 2 – figure out where the pressure is coming from (it’s usually at the very top of your neck) and 3 – create a PLAN to remove that pressure and KEEP you in a healthy, healing state. We call it “rest and digest mode”. Once there, we simply help you stay on track with your diet (or help you get on track) and hold your hand every step of the way. We’ll provide you with support, classes, we’ve even been known to take our patients grocery shopping! Just give us a call and we’ll talk about your case and see how we can help!
