A recent study published in JAMA Internal Medicine has proven what chiropractors have been saying for over 100 years now…”medications are NOT the answer, they only create more health problems”. This is exactly what this study demonstrates.

According the CNN

“The study involved analyzing data on 284,343 adults in the United Kingdom, aged 55 and older, between 2004 and 2016. The data came from QResearch, a large database of anonymized health records.

The researchers identified each adult’s anticholinergic exposure based on details of their prescriptions. The researchers found the most frequently prescribed anticholinergic drugs were antidepressants, drugs to treat vertigo, motion sickness or vomiting and bladder antimuscarinic drugs, such as to treat overactive bladder.”

Researchers wrote in the study that “there was nearly a 50% increased odds of dementia” associated with a total anticholinergic exposure of more than 1,095 daily doses within a 10-year period, which is equivalent to an older adult taking a strong anticholinergic medication daily for at least three years, compared with no exposure.

From a chiropractic standpoint here is the take away. The cause of all disease is due to too much stress on the body and specifically the nervous system. These stressors come from one of three areas or a combination of these three areas. These 3 stressors are physical stress, chemical stress and emotional stress. Regular chiropractic adjustments have been shown in research to effect the brain’s ability to deal with this stress so your brain can function the way it is designed too. Adding more chemicals ( medications) to your body only increases the amount of stress to your nervous system and brain leading to more health issues which is exactly what this research is demonstrating.

So instead of “covering” up your health issues with medications work with a TRUCHIRO in your area who can help you determine the cause of your health issue so it can be corrected.
