Health: Back Support.
What is the role of the spine and why is
Doctors stress the importance of spinal traction and
the adjustment of bones and muscles. This is because
bones and muscles support and regulate the main and
collateral spinal channels. An improperly aligned
spine leads to sore bones and problems in the main
and collateral channels, as well as in the vital
organs of the body. Thus, if the spine is out of
proper alignment, it can cause such things as
inflammation of the shoulder, spurs, nerve pain,
stomach aches and joint pain.
Why does pain occur in the vital body organs? -
Because nerves radiate from the spine to the vital
body organs. The nervous system is the brain's
communication system. A crooked spine constricts the
peripheral nervous system radiating from it. If that
nerve happens to extend to the stomach, the stomach
will be pathologically changed. Vital organs will
ache. The most severe symptoms that can result from
this is compression of the peripheral nerves.

by Traction: When you are reclining, the
spine does not have to support the weight of the
body, so it assumes a natural state. By
repeatedly swaying the spine, much like the
motion of a fish, the spine relaxes and adjusts
itself accordingly. Many masseuses hold the
ankles and sway the body at the end of a

Enclosed within your spinal cord,
is the Autonomic Nervous System.
The Autonomic Nervous System(ANS), is an
essential part of the body, controlling most of
your involuntary and intuitive everyday body
functions. It is composed of two branches, the
Parasympathetic and the Sympathetic. These two
branches are enclosed within the spinal cord and
extend to the lungs, heart, blood vessels, the eyes,
stomach, intestines, liver and kidneys, bladder, sex
organs and sweat, salivary and digestive glands.
When any of these nerves malfunction, when one
system becomes more active, the body begins to act
up and respond accordingly.
When these systems are working properly, the
Sympathetic and Parasympathetic nerves trade off as
needed. In times of stress or when extra activation
is needed, the Sympathetic system steps in. Once the
crisis is averted, the body settles down under the
gentle care of the Parasympathetic System.
Parasympathetic System is fueled by the
neurotransmitter serotonin. Serotonin is
created from tryptophan. Serotonin also makes
melatonin which enables us to sleep better.
The Sympathetic Nervous System sends signals
to multiple different body organs, stimulating the
body - fight or flight.
The Parasympathetic Nervous System inhibits
and keeps activity calm - rest and regeneration.

The Autonomic Nervous
System is stimulated and fine tuned
by gentle motion of the body such as
swaying or rocking.
Upset to the Autonomic Nervous System may cause:
Anxiety - Dizziness when standing.
Heart palpitations - Raised blood pressure.
Abdominal cramps - Constipation or Diarrhea - Urgent

Digestive problems - Nausea, Vomiting -
Sexual activity - Erectile dysfunction, Impotence -
Vaginal dryness, Orgasm difficulty.
Heat intolerance - Excessive sweating - Cold skin -

1) Daily exercise

elimination so the body does not
stagnate and poison itself.
A sedentary lifestyle, shallow breathing,
stress, an acidic diet, environmental pollution
... all contribute to an unhealthy future of
pain and illness.

optimally. Decay, stagnation, wrinkled skin and
facial lines develop, weight gain occurs, body
systems cannot work correctly thereby creating a
host of minor to major diseases. Most people
live in a state of dehydration, which promotes
headaches, constipation, pain and toxicity.
