Natural Diabetes Treatment
Diabetes is an umbrella term for a group of diseases that impair the body’s ability to process and break down glucose. Estimated to affect 10.5% of the adult population in the United States, the prevalence of diabetes is increasing at an alarming rate.
There are two types of diabetes: type 1 and type 2. A person is diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when their pancreas is not able to produce enough insulin, preventing the body from converting and storing glucose as energy. When a person has type 2 diabetes, the pancreas is able to produce insulin, but the body is unable to use it effectively.
Symptoms of Diabetes
Despite having different causes, type 1 and type 2 diabetes have many of the same classical symptoms. Some of the most common symptoms of type 1 and type 2 diabetes include:
- Urinating more often (polyuria)
- Constant feelings of hunger (polyphagia)
- Excessive thirst (polydipsia)
- Vomiting and stomach pain
- Chronic lethargy
- More frequent headaches
- Bouts of dizziness
- Blurry vision
- Cramping legs
- Slower healing cuts and skin irritation
How the Upper Cervical Spine Affects Diabetes
A systematic review of the existing literature around diabetes occurrence suggests that there is an association between diabetes symptoms and pain in the neck and lower back. The causal connection between these conditions is likely due to the relationship between the central nervous system and the endocrine cells of the pancreas (i.e. the cells responsible for producing insulin).
If there is inflammation or vertebral misalignment along the upper cervical spine, it can interfere with the neural pathways that link the central nervous system with the pancreas. Left untreated, this interference may cause an acute or chronic disruption in the body’s ability to naturally produce and utilize insulin.
How Our Upper Cervical Treatment for Diabetes Works
As you’ve probably already guessed, our program for treating diabetes revolves around correcting misalignments and alleviating inflammation in the upper cervical spine. Before we’re able to commence our adjustment program, we first need to figure out if a prospective patient is even suffering from a misalignment in their upper cervical spine. When checking for a misalignment, the first thing our team will do is conduct a range of objective chiropractic tests.
Depending on the outcome of these tests, we may also run a Cone Beam CT (CBCT) scan on the neck and upper spine. This process will not only uncover any abnormalities in the upper cervical spine, but it’ll also show the precise angle and direction of the misalignment in question.
Once we have this information, we’ll begin performing a gentle program of chiropractic adjustments. Don’t worry, each and every member of our chiropractic team are trained not to perform techniques that require pulling, cracking, or twisting of the spine and neck.
We provide upper cervical treatment for diabetes in Las Vegas and the greater Clark County area. Our program is also available in several neighboring states, including California, Arizona, and Utah.
