Digestive and reproductive function shuts down when your body is under nerve (autonomic) stress.
Having the focus on the areas of our body that limit physical danger helps us to react more quickly when we are threatened. However, this process is supposed to reset when the threat is no longer around. Regardless of whether it is due to neurological or spinal structure dysfunction, when stuck in a constant state of nerve stress, our digestive and reproductive systems start to break down.
Secondary conditions that can result from this form of NeuroSpinal dysfunction include irritable bowels, acid stomach, heartburn, indigestion, food sensitivities, diarrhea, bloating, and constipation. People looking for relief seek antacids, laxatives, and digestive enzymes. If NeuroSpinal dysfuction is the cause, the issue will not resolve with these quick fix methods and may even worsen or present as other conditions, sometimes even hormonal or reproductive conditions, over time.
If you are seeking treatment for digestive or reproductive challenges, we will assess for NeuroSpinal dysfunction that would contribute to those symptoms and secondary conditions. Dr. Caliendo uses a technique that assists the nervous system to adapt to future stressors, decreasing the development of future sensitivities and conditions, enabling you to live well. By treating the root of the problem, you can move on from the challenges and live a better quality of life.
