Biomechanics.

I’m not sure how typical or unusual this is, but I found out last summer the hypoglycemic symptoms I’d been having, and also the electrical jolts in my extremities, the hair falling out, numbness in my face, the dimming vision and tinnitus — I found out this wasn’t early stages of MS, as I had feared, or any other major medical situation. Instead, I was referred to a great chiropractor, he adjusted me for the first time in my life, and this treatment alleviated all these seemingly disparate symptoms.

His explanation was pretty simple: the neck can slip out of alignment from bad posture in front of a computer, this compresses key nerves that send impulses to every organ of the body. An adjustment will “reboot” the nervous system, and reestablish these important connections. Realignment of “subluxations” can also improve blood flow to the scalp and brain. It took a few sessions for the benefit to stay consistent, and for the last few months I’ve been feeling pretty good.

Don’t ask me why I didn’t just go back to the chiropractor when things went haywire a week ago. Today I did, and I’m feeling much better. Not 100% yet, but much improved.

The question remains, why did the helminthic therapy effects seem to disappear, and once my neck and spine are behaving again will I suddenly feel that “worm high” coming back? Time will tell. Today I was noticing their characteristic GI disturbance again, this after many days of a normal gut, so I know my “old friends” are still with me. For now I’m just trying to focus on the big three: adequate sleep, a good diet, and consistent exercise.
