The Effect Of Alcohol On Our Health!

The purpose of the post is not to be a kill joy, rather, to illuminate some facts that perhaps have not been considered by those endeavouring to change their lifestyles, to recover their health.

Did you know that habitual consumption of alcohol (in high doses) seriously affects the central nervous system? It may affect such diverse body parts as bones, bloodstream, liver, stomach, pancreas, heart, peripheral tissues and the mouth and of course it is an actual depressant of the central nervous system.

A healthy functioning nervous system is vital to your good health – that is why your Chiropractor is so interested in your nervous system!.  Alcohol influences the nervous system by “dumbing” down the indicators between the spinal cord, spinal nerves and the brain.  Consumption of excess alcohol also predisposes people to heart attackes, brain strokes and dementia.   Alcohol behaves as a depressant on the central nervous system and can have a disastrous affect on the frontal lobes of the brain resulting in mineral and vitamin deficiences.

Does this leave any good reason to overindulge?  Life is about balance – remember next time when reaching for that extra glass of alcohol perhaps it should be a glass of water instead!

At Chiropractic Life we look at the whole person and consider all aspects of your health.  Eating Well, Moving Well and Thinking Well are all vital elements in helping you to regain loss of health. After years of abusing his body Chiropractic gave Dr Scott his life back – read his story here.
