How to Overcome Holiday Stress

People have no problem understanding how a physical stress, such as falling, lifting, or repeated motions, can cause damage to the spine and nervous system causing subluxation.  On the other hand, chemical and emotional stresses may be a little more difficult to understand.

Yes, too much Starbucks can have a huge impact on the wellbeing of your spine and nervous system!

Today, more than ever, we are hearing about the effect that emotional stress can have on the body. People understand the link between emotional stress and ulcers, heart disease and headaches.  Similarly, emotional stress can result in spinal misalignment (subluxation) along with the severe nerve impact those misalignments can make.

Coincidentally, the Holiday Season is the most stressful time of the year and has the most impact on your health.

Overcome Holiday Stress Naturally

No on can run from or completely avoid stress, it is present in every aspect of your life.  Since we all live in the middle of stress, the best approach is to be proactive about dealing with it.

I fully understand that stress can be an extremely scary and overwhelming feeling to overcome.  When under chronic stress many people turn to medications as a way to cope with the symptoms and additional health concerns that arise.

I completely understand and am compassionate to individuals who feel the need to take prescription medications to help with stress.  However, this can be a very dangerous approach and does not address the underlying cause.

When we try to avoid physical, spiritual and emotional stressors and pain by drugging them, we are refusing to deal with reality.  Be brave with your life!

Stop running.

Stop hiding.

5 Essentials of Max Living

You can face your days, your circumstances, your family, your fears, and your finances.  By incorporating the 5 Essentials of Max Living, you can conquer any stressors that come your way.

  • Essential 1: Be proactive with keeping you mind in order
  • Essential 2: Nerve stress builds stress in your organs, which creates disease.  Get your spine checked for Spinal Subluxations
  • Essential 3: Cellular disease is caused by a lack of nutrition.  There is only one way to fix this – put proper nutrition into your body.
  • Essential 4: Everybody knows that exercise allows your body to deal with stress better.  Don’t skip your workouts.
  • Essential 5: When your body is bombarded with toxins, stress is a given.  Get toxins out of your life and body.

Of course, if a person is already suffering from spinal alignment issues, then the spine is in a pre-weakened state so stress will have a far greater negative impact on someone’s health.

That could be the pressure of athletic competition or even non-physical stressful situations like talking on the phone with the head tilted at an angle, sitting at a computer, or any kind of repetitive work while experiencing the pressures of your job.

Except for major physical traumas, it is likely that almost all spinal issues occur as a result of a combination of physical, chemical, and emotional stresses upon the body.

Clearly, if you are subluxation free, already living with your spine in line, you will be better able to withstand those forces. That is why it is important to make sure your spine is currently in its ideal state and if not, to correct it.  Otherwise, daily stress will undoubtedly take its toll.

In our modern, stressful world most if not all people require some degree of spinal correction and then due to continued exposure to chemicals, stress, and physical trauma they need to be on a spinal maintenance plan by a chiropractor that understands the ideal model of a spine and how to restore it if it’s lost.
