“No More Heartburn, Acid Reflux or Bloating
Prior to coming to Advanced Holistic Healthcare, I experienced heartburn, acid reflux, and bloating constantly with almost everything I ate bringing me to tears due to the pain. I had experienced this pain for about 15 years. After receiving treatment for a week, my condition has improved. I can now eat almost anything, to the poin
t that I am now always hungry. I no longer need to rely on Pepcid AC to relieve my pain. I am really happy and I now have to watch how much I am eating now because I may gain weight.”
A case study published on January 2, 2012 in the Journal of Pediatric, Maternal & Family Health documents the case of a baby girl who was suffering from developmental delay, colic and GERD, and who was helped by chiropractic care.
According to the US National Library of Medicine, Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) is a condition in which the stomach contents (food or liquid) leak backwards from the stomach into the esophagus (the tube from the mouth to the stomach). This action can irritate the esophagus, causing heartburn, and other symptoms.
In this case, a mother brought her 15-month-old daughter to a chiropractor after noticing that the girl was developmentally behind where she should be. These developmental issues included not standing, walking or talking appropriately for her age level. The baby was only crawling, and could not say more that two-syllable words.
The study reported that, previously, the mother had brought her baby to the chiropractor at the age of five months. At that time, the baby was suffering from GERD and colic. These issues were both resolved within three chiropractic adjustments. The study was recorded later when the child was 15 months of age and was suffering from the developmental delay issues.
A chiropractic examination revealed subluxations in the upper neck. Specific adjustments were initiated once a week for a 19-week period. The results showed that by the third adjustment the child was walking with some assistance. The study reported that by the 6th visit, the child was walking by holding on to a table and had added words to her vocabulary. By the 9th visit, she had taken 6 steps by herself and increased her vocabulary by three more words.
An update assessment was done on the 19th visit. At this time, the girl was 19 months of age. She had improved her walking and was now at the level of a 12-month-old. Her speech was at the proper developmental level for her age, and she no longer had any signs of other developmental delays.
From the Journal of Pediatric, Maternal & Family Health, comes a study published on June 7, 2012 following the case of an infant with constipation being helped by chiropractic care. The authors noted that constipation accounts for 3% of visits to general pediatricians, and 25% of visits to pediatric gastroenterologists. The authors also report that an estimated 1.7 million US children suffered from constipation in a 2-year period from 2003 to 2004.
In this case, a 3 week old infant boy was brought to the chiropractor with a chief complaint of constipation. The history notes that according to his mother, her baby had bowel movements at only 2-day intervals since birth. The baby also suffered from irritability and frequent waking from sleep that was attributed to acid reflux. The boy was being breast fed, but still had the issues. The boy's pediatrician placed the child on a nonprescription medication for the treatment of heartburn and gastroesophageal reflux disease.
A chiropractic examination was performed which included visual inspection, static and motion palpation. A determination was made that the child had subluxations at both the top and bottom of his spine. Specific chiropractic adjustments were given to initiate correction of the nerve system interference caused by the infant's subluxations.
The results as reported in the case study noted that the infants improvement was immediate. The authors wrote, "His mother was very excited to report that her child had a bowel movement on the day following his first chiropractic adjustment and following each feeding." The authors also recorded that, "The patient was also able to sleep longer during the night with less wake ups, crying, and general irritability."
The study authors reviewed several other previous studies documenting chiropractic helping patients with constipation. In their conclusion they wrote, "This case report provides supporting evidence that patients with constipation may benefit from subluxation-based chiropractic care."
Research, published in the November 2002 issue of the Journal of Vertebral Subluxation Research (JVSR) demonstrates that chiropractic care may be effective in helping patients with allergies and Crohn's Disease. The results of those studied showed long term remission and alleviation of symptoms in both allergy and Crohn's Disease.
Crohn's disease causes inflammation in the small intestine. Crohn's disease usually occurs in the lower part of the small intestine, called the ileum, but it can affect any part of the digestive tract, from the mouth to the anus. The inflammation extends deep into the lining of the affected organ. The inflammation can cause pain and can make the intestines empty frequently, resulting in diarrhea. Crohn's disease is an inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), the general name for diseases that cause inflammation in the intestines. Crohn's disease affects men and women equally and seems to run in some families. About 20 percent of people with Crohn's disease have a blood relative with some form of IBD, most often a brother or sister and sometimes a parent or child. Crohn's disease may also be called ileitis or enteritis.
In the research 57 patients were divided into two groups. One group was a control group that received only standard medical care for their condition. The second group consisted of 17 patients who also received their standard medical care but additionally received chiropractic care. This group of 17 patients received spinal adjustments in order to reduce the vertebral subluxations in the thoracic and lumbar regions of their spine. The control group did not receive spinal adjustments.
The researchers found that vertebral subluxations were a common and characteristic finding in patients with allergies and Crohn's disease. The results showed that 12 of the 17 patients who received spinal adjustments, showed long-term and stable remission of their symptoms while 9 experienced an alleviation effect. The researchers concluded, "According to the results of this study the possibility may be considered that chronic nerve compression secondary to vertebral subluxation in the thoracic and lumbar regions had a significant effect on the immune function of these allergy and Crohn's disease patients."
