Discover the Root Causes of Inflammation – Our Holistic Approach

If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the constant cycle of medications, diet changes, and supplements to combat inflammation, you’re not alone. At Abundant Health Chiropractic, we understand how exhausting it can be, especially when it seems like nothing is truly helping. Our holistic approach focuses on addressing the root causes of inflammation, going beyond the traditional methods to bring you lasting relief and optimal health.

The Hidden Cause of Inflammation: Vagus Nerve Dysfunction and Nervous System Dysregulation

As parents, we want the best for our children’s health. If your child struggles with chronic illnesses, you may have turned to traditional medical approaches or explored biomedical interventions. However, there’s a hidden cause of inflammation often overlooked: vagus nerve dysfunction and nervous system dysregulation.

Inflammation plays a significant role in many chronic illnesses affecting the gut, immune system, brain, and nervous system. Conditions like autism, ADHD, anxiety, and epilepsy have been linked to chronic inflammation. Addressing inflammation alone may not be enough. Recent research shows that approximately 27% of children in the United States have a chronic condition. Research also shows that 1 in 15 have multiple chronic conditions. These numbers are rising, indicating that traditional medical approaches may not effectively address the root causes of these health challenges.

The Missing Piece: Stress and Nervous System Dysfunction

Traditional and biomedical approaches often focus on diet changes, detoxes, and supplements to combat inflammation. Unfortunately, they miss a crucial piece of the puzzle. Chronic stress significantly contributes to inflammation, even in children, leading to dysfunction in the vagus nerve and autonomic nervous system.

The vagus nerve, the longest cranial nerve in the body, plays a vital role in regulating the parasympathetic “rest and digest” response. When this nerve becomes compromised due to interference along its pathway, it can lead to gut and immune system dysfunction. This allows inflammation to run rampant.

The Vagus Nerve-Immune System Connection

Recent scientific findings reveal a significant connection between the vagus nerve and the immune system. They are specifically connected in controlling and regulating inflammation. When the vagus nerve functions properly, it helps keep inflammation in check. However, when the nerve becomes dysfunctional, it compromises the body’s ability to manage inflammation, leading to a wide range of chronic health issues.

So, how can you determine if your child’s vagus nerve is stressed and dysfunctional? Neurological INSiGHT Scans, particularly NeuroThermal testing, detect areas of subluxation, nervous system interference, inflammation, and temperature changes in the spine, indicating vagus nerve dysfunction and nervous system dysregulation. Another valuable tool is Heart Rate Variability (HRV) testing, which measures the balance between the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems. This test reveals dysautonomia and the body’s ability to manage stress and inflammation.

The Path to Healing

If your child is struggling with inflammation-related symptoms such as immune or autoimmune disorders, autism spectrum disorder, anxiety, seizures, or other neuroimmune-related health challenges, it’s time to look beyond just managing symptoms through diet changes and supplements.

Balancing the autonomic nervous system and optimizing vagus nerve function is essential for resolving persistent inflammation that doesn’t respond to traditional or biomedical interventions. By identifying and addressing the root cause of your child’s chronic inflammation and health struggles, you can set them on the path to true healing and wellness.

Once vagus nerve dysfunction is identified, there are various safe, simple, and gentle ways to stimulate and activate this essential part of the nervous system. These methods help restore balance and reduce inflammation.
