Healthy Mind. Healthy Body… (“Eat well, Think well, Move well”)

Dr-Luke-Mulvihill-v2 

“By changing our minds, we really can change our lives,”

The bad news is we live in a modern day environment that is “physically, chemically and emotionally stressful for our bodies” say Chiropractor DC Luke Mulvihill  at West Sussex Chiropractic in Crawley.

The good news is that we have the power to change negative thoughts and feelings into positive, rational, motivating thoughts, and in doing so, help create a healthy mind in a healthy body.

This transformation, which is part of new research in neurophysiology and psychology focused on mind-body health, is very important because it can greatly boost our chances of achieving what we want in life, including a fitter, healthier lifestyle.

“By changing our minds, we really can change our health” asserts DC Luke Mulvihill.

The Healthy Mind and Body Connection

Mind-body medicine originated more than 4,000 years ago, when physicians in China noticed that illness often followed periods of frustration in their patients’ lives. Today in western societies like the UK, Australia and the U. S., healthcare professionals also share the view that emotions, life events, and coping skills can have a very strong influence on health.

Healthy mind-body medicine is now part of exciting new fields such as psycho neuroimmunology and behavioural cardiology.

  • Psycho neuroimmunology focuses on the relationship of our thoughts and emotions to our brain chemistry and immune system. Early research suggest that a positive mental attitude helps fight disease by boosting immune system function.
  • Behavioural cardiology is the application of positive mental health exercises and social factors to aid the reduction in the risk of cardiovascular disease. It is an important field for a number of reasons, including reducing recurring heart attacks, helping patients recover sooner, and improving family support.

Chronic stress can make us fat – and sick

It is the long-term consequences of an anxiety-stress filled existence that are particularly troubling. Over time, chronic negative emotional and psychological stress can:

  • Promote fat storage
  • Retain salt in the body
  • Destroy the body’s resistance to cancer, infections, and illness
  • Cause infertility and sexual dysfunction
  • Exacerbate diabetes
  • Deposit cholesterol in blood vessels
  • Accelerate heart rate and increase blood pressure, and thicken blood so it clots more readily, which makes you more prone to suffering a heart attack or stroke

FINALLY….. Remember……the purpose of chiropractic is to locate and correct areas of the spine that interfere with the normal nervous system control of your body. Because the intervertebral discs are so close to the spinal cord and nerve roots, disc involvement is common in chiropractic cases. Spinal adjustments help to restore correct motion and position of the misaligned spinal bones and if caught before permanent damage occurs, disc tissue often returns to a more normal size and shape.

Chiropractic first. Risky drugs second. Surgery last.
