If you've been dealing with acid reflux, heartburn, then taking the over-the-counter medications might be enough to give you a little temporary relief, but if it's a reoccurring thing then that eventually is going to create longer-term digestive problems. And if you're taking medication every day, of course you know there's a lot of different side effects with a lot of those reflux medications. What we have found at the Upper Cervical Spine Center is that there are nerves that come from the brain, down through the brainstem and they control the stomach and the type of acid secretion.
Basically your digestion as a whole is controlled by the nerves that come from the brain, through the brainstem, the upper cervical part of the spine, and they go down to the stomach and they regulate your acid production and your digestion and how your body breaks down food.
If there's a bone out of alignment ... I know, it's crazy as it sounds, one little bone at the top of the neck could actually be affecting the nerves that supply the stomach and control your upper digestive system, as well as the lower digestive system. The thing is, the brain, the brainstem, the spinal cord has no pain perception. So you could actually have had a bone out of alignment in your neck for years that could be affecting the nerves that go to any multiple parts of your body without ever having the least bit of neck pain or headaches, but it could be affecting how your body digests your food. And so if the digestion's going slower than it should be it can cause weight gain, can cause bloating, can cause the reflux, the heartburn that keeps coming up into the back of your throat.
If you experience any type of acid reflux, heartburn, bloating, slow digestion, give our office a call. It just might be the solution you've been looking for. I will tell you this, that medications are never going to fix the problem because it's not a drug deficiency or a lack of purple pills that actually cause reflux, so it's just going to temporarily mask it. But it's still going to keep reoccurring, so if you want to try to find a lasting solution then I would highly recommend you get your nervous system checked because, the nervous system actually controls your digestion. So if there's a problem there with the nervous system then the control's off, and so that could be ultimately what's creating this long-term, longstanding digestive issue.
