Hey, it’s Dr. Troy her, the Vancouver chiropractor.
Today I want to talk about nasal congestion.
Some people go “So, what are you going to do, crack my nose? What, are you going to break it?” The answer is no, we are not going to do that.
Let me tell you a little bit about me. When I was in high school, all through junior high, high school, college, even chiropractic school, I had really bad nasal congestion, allergies, sinus problems. I mean, so bad that I would get these really bad headaches, my nose would not stop leaking, and I had to blow my nose a tremendous amount of times. The only way it would calm down was to take some pills and go lay in a quiet room for a couple of hours, take a nap. I would wake up and I would be ok for a while. But it kept going on and on and on, year after year. I didn’t know what to do.
It wasn’t until I got into chiropractic school and I started getting adjusted regularly, that it helped clear up my sinus problems. And you are asking “How does chiropractic work on the sinus problem?” Well, a couple of things. One thing you have to understand is chiropractic works with the brain, spinal cord, and the nerves that come off. This is the elimination system.
So many people now, with processed foods, chemicals that they put in they body. They put it in through their mouth and it has to go out some way. The body wants to eliminate. So, if it’s not going to eliminate through the colon or the kidney or the bladder or the skin, it will come out through the sinuses. So, you will get nasal congestion, you’ll get lung congestion.
How does chiropractic help with this? Well, in my case, I had an upper neck misalignment. It was interfering in altering the messages that were controlling the health of my mucous and sinus membranes. And so I was getting massive congestion, massive symptoms from those issues. It wasn’t until I started getting this area-adjusted that my nasal congestion, my sinus problem cleared up. I also found a great medicine, let’s call it a natural medicine called Psyllium Husks.
And so a lot of people think “I have regular bowel movements.” But Cillian just helps keep things moving steadily so that if you have protein and carbs together, it’s not sitting in your intestines for eight hours. It helps move through the intestinal tract so you eliminate those toxins. Because if the toxins aren’t coming out, your digestive tract, your elimination system regularly, it’s going to come out somewhere. It’s going to come out your skin, it’s going to come out your sinuses.
So, chiropractic, the philosophy of healing, has really helped me understand how we’ve been able to help a lot of patients with sinus with sinus and nasal congestion issues over the years.
