A healthy nervous system is essential for you to be able to adapt to your environment in a healthy way. Dr. Zieve states, We live in a toxic world. The great majority of chemicals we now take in daily were not on the planet 30 years ago. These toxins become neurotoxins, damaging the nervous system.”

You can control your exposure to many of these toxins by making healthier nutritional choices and avoiding environmental toxicity whenever possible.


Chiropractic examinations are more important than ever because they evaluate the health of the spinal column and the nervous system. Spinal subluxations, an  extremely common condition in adults and children, can alter the function of your nervous system and affect your health on every level.  It even can lie asymptomatic for decades.


Conditions that affect your nerves can occur during the birth process, learning to walk, contact sports, experiencing stress, sitting too much, eating unhealthy foods, and from exposure to environmental toxicity, to name a few. Waiting until neurological symptoms show up means that your condition may have already become chronic. Don’t let this happen to you.


Good nutrition is vital to a healthy nervous system.  It helps the body heal and prevent or ease the harmful effects of neurotoxins. Protein from amino acids are vital as they provide the building blocks for neurotransmitters. Strict vegans need to supplement their diet with amino acids to fill any gaps that exist in their diet. B-complex vitamins and minerals are also important for nervous system function.


Keeping your nervous system healthy can make a big difference in your long-term health and well-being as well as your body’s ability to adapt. Don’t wait for a crisis to force you to act. Make the health of your spine and nervous system a top priority.
