Chiropractic Adjustments & Coritsol Levels

A group of researchers in Australia recently found that chiropractic adjustments lead to a dramatic decrease in cortisol levels. Cortisol is a hormone produced in the adrenal glands in response to stress. With chronic stress, cortisol contributes to a weakened immune system, increased fat storage, fatigue, high blood pressure, and a whole host of undesirable side effects. Chronic stress has been implicated by health experts as an underlying factor in up to 90% of all doctor visits and can contribute to cardiovascular disease (atherosclerosis, heart attack, stroke), osteoporosis, asthma, diabetes, depression, ulcers, ulcerative colitis, and the progression of Alzheimer's disease.
