Could emotional illnesses be tied to the health of your organs?
The Mental Health Foundation states one in five Americans face mental health issues every year, and 50% experience it before age 14. During COVID, anxiety and depression symptoms affected at least 41.5% of adults. Depression and anxiety was also noted as having a huge impact on young adults aged 18-29.
Traditional medicine does not have many answers to help those suffering from mental health issues. Often, doctors prescribe antidepressants that can have severe negative side effects.
The connection between our physical health and our mental health is gaining interest and awareness in the scientific community. Dr. Robert DeMaria discusses, in a recent interview, the correlation between how organ function affects how we feel emotionally. For example, Eastern medicine observes the whole body and correlates anger and irritability to the liver’s health, looking at issues such as enlarged or fatty liver. Whatever we eat and put into our body will be processed by the liver. It will either strengthen or weaken its vitality.
Chiropractic also speaks to the whole body. Chiropractic is a natural, holistic health care approach based on scientific facts. The body is self-healing and a self-regulating intelligent organism. The central nervous system communicates with and controls and coordinates all other systems in the body. The skull and vertebral segments including the spine protect the central nervous system.
Interference and stress to the nervous system decreases the body’s ability to heal and self-regulate. Organs, glands and cells will not function optimally when there is interference on those nerves due to mis-alignment of the spine. Anxiety and depression along with migraines, joint pain, muscle aches, indigestion, constipation, and earaches can all be linked to mis-alignment of the spine.
