Have you ever wondered why people get asthma? There are a myriad of reasons. The primary reason is that the person’s body is not responding to stress correctly. Stress can come in many forms. Diet, air quality, emotions, physical trauma, and so much more contribute to our daily stress. Our nervous system is what mediates and regulates how we respond to stress. When that stress gets too great for our body to handle, we experience dis-
ease and subluxate. One form of dis-ease is asthma. Your body needs a properly functioning nervous system to keep you well. People with asthma typically see huge changes under Chiropractic care.
Treating the Cause
Does a chiropractor “treat” you? According to legal parlance, maybe so. But the intent of a chiropractor is to care for you, NOT to treat your symptoms or cure your diseases. That would be an impossible task for anyone. When chiropractors talk about “treating the cause”, they are referring to caring for you through the detection and correction of vertebral subluxation so that your body can heal itself. When the body heals its self, there are no side effects or contraindications. No worries or concerns. It is doing exactly what it should be doing; moving you to a state of greater health and wellness.
An Infant Resolves Chronic Asthma
A recently published case study in the Journal of Pediatric, Maternal & Family Health (Vol. 2014, Issue 2, pp. 27-29) reported a 19 month-old patient with the Medical diagnosis of severe chronic asthma and a Chiropractic diagnosis of vertebral subluxation. At 9 months, the patient began experiencing symptoms of asthma. By 18 months he had been treated 4 times at the hospital emergency room for episodes of acute respiratory distress. He suffered from constant wheezing and cough and was not responding well to pharmacological interventions. Adjustments of the cervical spine were preformed on 6 visits. After 9 weeks, no further episodes of breathing difficulty were reported and measures of vertebral subluxation had reduced. This case suggests that Chiropractic adjustments to reduce subluxation may be effective for the reduction of asthma symptoms in some pediatric cases which have not responded well to standard pharmacologic treatment.

Tonal Chiropractic Adjustments
This approach looks at the overall tone of your nervous system. Is your body stuck in a sympathetic overdrive of “Fight or Flight” or over-exhuasted from a parasympathetic hibernation? Tonal chiropractic allows your body to find the harmony between these two extremes, while also relieving abnormal tension on the brain, spinal cord, and nerves. This allows your brain and body to be more adaptable and resilient. When the nervous system is running “fight or flight” all the time, the normal functions of the body can become compromised. Dr. Nathan uses a combination of MLS, Network Spinal Analysis, Biogeometric Integration, and MC2 to help your nervous system shift from stress to healing.
Dr. Nathan will adjust the vertebrae in the affected area to increase your range of motion and take pressure off the spinal nerves. He will also focus on any imbalanced zone(s) of your body. Every cell in the body falls into at least one of the 6 zones: glandular, eliminative, nervous, digestive, muscular and circulatory. Dr. Nathan will determine which zone is either out of balance or needs a boost. In this way not only may immune function improve, but all functions in the body may improve.
