I used to experience stomach pain every single day. Throughout my life, I was told that I would always have digestive issues. I attempted multiple avenues of testing, unique diets, and even different physical activities to alleviate some of the pain that was associated with my chronic condition.
After being told over and over again that there was nothing specific I could do, I decided that this is just how it is going to be. I accepted it. I decided that it was something that I was going to live with for the rest of my life, and I had developed different ways to deal with the symptoms of an abnormal digestive system.
I first tried chiropractic care for the sole fact that I worked a desk job that was compromising my posture. I didn’t have much of an education on all of the things that chiropractic can help with, but I figured it had something to do with the spine. When meeting with Dr. Knight for the first time, I briefly mentioned that I had digestive problems; however, I did not think that it was very relevant to the discussion. Little did I know, my stomach aches were the result of severe subluxation in the lower portion of my spine.
I did not have the most confidence in the fact that chiropractic could help my stomach because I thought I had tried everything. Doctors told me that it could be an unlucky result of genetics, environment, etc. I decided to try it anyways because I figured that it couldn’t hurt.
I cannot put into words how much chiropractic has changed my life for the better. I am not exaggerating when I say that my stomachaches have ceased to exist. My life is completely different in the fact that I can workout when I want to now. I can see friends and family without fear of being the sick one all of the time. I can eat healthy foods and know that my body will understand how to properly process them.
My confidence in the amazing healing of the body is now substantial. I have never been more connected not only with my body, but my life as a whole. I urge anyone and everyone to try this, for chiropractic does not only help digestive issues or stomachaches. Chiropractic helps allow your body to heal where it needs it the most.
