The Circulatory System
Zone 6 Circulation includes the heart, arteries, veins, and the lymphatic system (the body’s “mini-trash cans”). These 60,000 miles of circulatory pathways carry oxygen and other nutrients to all parts of the body. It then carries carbon dioxide and other waste products to the proper organs to be flushed out of the body. Additionally, those clean nutrients help the body repair any tissues/ organs damaged from stress or trauma.
In addition to its daily responsibilities, the circulatory zone carries hormones released by the glandular zone. Just like the engine in your car, without proper oil circulating through it, the car would seize up and stop working. The lymphatic system is your body’s daily oil changing system, collecting and releasing lymph and hormones into the bloodstream. Since it doesn’t have a pump (like the heart), it is dependent on Zone 5 to move the fluids around. Because of this, bedridden patients may develop bed sores due to lack of movement of lymph fluid and hormones.
Physical, mental, or chemical stress can cause a disturbance in the brain center as well as a spinal misalignment or subluxation in the circulatory nerve channels. This disturbance interferes with the proper brain/nerve signals traveling to other Zone 6 organs, creating a multitude of dis-ease and problems.
An imbalance in Zone 6 causes symptoms like…
- Thyroid conditions
- Blood pressure issues
- Heart problems
- Headaches/ migraines
- Cold extremities (hands/ feet)
- Poor circulation
How Dr. Nathan will balance this zone…
Dr. Nathan will perform a zone 6 specific adjustment as well as inform you what you may expect after the adjustment. Balancing this zone, like all healing, requires time and consistency . Its kind of like working out; if you exercised once, you wouldn’t expect to drop 10lbs on the scale or run a 5K race immediately. Balancing this zone takes some time and it takes adjustments.
Once this Zone is balanced you body will have a greater opportunity to heal…
- normal working thyroid gland
- proper cardiovascular function
- regular lymphatic function
- perfect working heart and lungs
- excellent blood flow to all organs, muscles and tissues
