Can fixing your spine really make you look and feel younger?
I just read a recent case study in the Journal of Molecular and Genetic Medicine on how chiropractic extends telomeres! How cool is that? Very cool! You might be asking yourself, what is a telomere and what does it have to do with me? Basically, telomere length (TL) is a biomarker of biological aging. TL is longest at birth and decreases with advancing age. Shortened telomere length have been associated with metabolic and inflammatory diseases, cancer, chronic and serious illness. Telomere length is also associated with lifestyle choices such as diet, tobacco and alcohol use, physical activity, and sleep.
Briefly, the case study showed that by correcting the patient’s cervical spine with Chiropractic Biophysics they could lengthen the telomeres. Our spine should have a certain shape. When we lose that shape, the body starts to break down. Chiropractic biophysics is a technique that helps restore the proper spinal shape. Luckily, we use this technique at Parris Family Chiropractic!
There are many things we can do to make ourselves feel and look younger. We can eat a healthy diet, exercise, get ample sleep, connect spiritually, and make sure our spine is in good shape (pun intended).
Have a great day and try to lengthen your telomeres!
