Genetics And Chiropractic Part1

Monday, May 2nd, 2011

Holistic care, such as the care provided by chiropractors, is deemed effective by experts. This type of care can benefit behaviors, overall wellness, and cuts down the price of health care. However, it was not until recently that information surfaced about how chiropractic adjustments could influence the chemistry of biological processes on a cellular level. Chiropractic is now emerged in the world of genetics.

According to one study, chiropractic care acts upon physiological processes that determine oxidative stress and DNA’s ability to repair itself. Findings, such as this one point, to scientific explanations for the positive effects were reported by chiropractic care patients. Although more research is still pending to illustrate chiropractic care’s role in biological processes, present findings highlight chiropractic care’s effectiveness.

In the study, researchers evaluated serum thiol levels (in those undergoing both short-term and long-term chiropractic care), comparing the results against patients who were not receiving chiropractic care. Serum thiols are primary antioxidants that measure human health status. Its test offers a substitute estimate of DNA repair enzyme activity that is shown to coincide with lifespan health and aging factors. These results indicated that chiropractic care over the long term is able to restore many patients’ normal physiological states. Patients with an ongoing disease had lower mean serum levels than those patients who did not show symptoms while receiving chiropractic care. These patients also showed serum thiol levels in higher concentrations than normal wellness values.

The stressors (physical, emotional, chemical) that someone experiences throughout life impinges on the way the nervous system works. Experts have asserted that nerve function is related to oxidative stress, and DNA repair (cellular). A widely accepted theory claims that oxidative stress, which comes in the form of metabolically-generating free radicals, is how we age and develop disease. Oxidative stress presents itself as an agent of DNA damage, which hinders DNA’s ability to repair itself. When the DNA is able to recover on its own, it can repair environmental harm.
