Have you ever known someone to suffer from blood pressure that is too high or too low?

Where does an unhealthy blood pressure come from? Does medication fix it? And what does this have to do with chiropractic?

What should my blood pressure be? It is highly individualized. There is no one answer that applies to everyone. Someone’s body may require a blood pressure a bit higher than what is considered normal, or a bit lower. In other words, what’s normal for one person, may not be for another.

How does my body know what my blood pressure level should be? Great question. Let’s answer by starting with a quiz. The center of blood pressure regulation is located in: A) the heart, B) the brain stem, C) the spleen, or D) the lungs. Hint: It’s surrounded by the ring shaped first vertebrae, called the atlas.

The answer: B. The brain stem. The brain stem also regulates heart rate and respiration, all are vital functions.

Cool fact: The name of the brain stem area that controls blood pressure is the Vasomotor Center.

If the brain stem is in charge, then how does blood pressure become healthy? Why can’t the brain stem fix it? Another great question. In a healthy body, the brain stem can fix it, unless the atlas has become subluxated. A subluxation? What’s that? It is a vertebrae, that due to even a slight stress, has become misaligned and now interferes with the nervous system.

What does an atlas subluxation do? It puts pressure on the brain stem and spinal cord, preventing proper blood pressure regulation.

Oh no! Does blood pressure medication fix subluxation? No it does not. Subluxation can only be removed and vertebrae put back into place by chiropractic adjustment.

Medication alters blood pressure … Medication alters blood pressure by chemically manipulating the body. It does not fix the cause at its’ root.

Yes. In addition to lack of exercise, smoking and other unhealthy habits, many medications (it’s a side effect), and final subluxation.

A healthy diet and exercise is critical but will not fully correct the problem. Subluxation must also be removed.

How does someone know if they have a subluxation? They don’t. Subluxations can not be felt, only a chiropractor is able to detect it. Once an atlas subluxation is removed, brain stem function can improve. Blood pressure has a change to normalize, naturally. Phew!

Can someone taking blood pressure medication see a chiropractor, too? Yes. It may even lead the medical doctor to lower the dosage. A cause for celebration.

Do you have a friend or loved one with blood pressure that is too high or too low? Ask your chiropractor for a copy of blood pressure information to pass along, so that your loved one can finally find relief and live the life they’ve always imagined.

You can help change someone’s life. What could feel better than that?
