Environmental Factors Behind Thyroid Disease | Wellness Clinic

The thyroid gland is a butterfly-shaped organ located in the base of the neck. It's in charge of releasing essential thyroid hormones which control the body's metabolism, the way the body uses energy. The thyroid gland's hormones regulate vital body functions, such as breathing, heart rate, central and peripheral nervous systems, body temperature and more.

What causes autoimmune thyroid disease?
As essential as the thyroid gland is, however, the body's own immune system can sometimes malfunction and attack this important endocrine organ, ultimately affecting its function. Autoimmune thyroid diseases, like Hashimoto's thyroid disease and Graves' disease, have been on the rise in the United States. While the diagnosis of thyroid disease has increased, many doctors still don't know the cause of the issue, but these have been linked to several factors.

A Visit To Your Local Chiropractor Could Make Your Sex Life Amazing!


People don’t go to a chiropractor for a better sex life, but it's an added bonus. “People come in with back pain, but after adjustments, they come back and tell me their sex life is so much better,” says Jason Helfrich, co-founder and CEO of 100% Chiropractic. “It’s no surprise to us—it’s amazing what the body will do when you take away the pressure on the nervous system.”

How does this work?

What does a chiropractor really do? Your body is controlled by the nervous system, however, when the vertebra are not in proper position, the nerves traveling between your brain and your muscles can become blocked, — known as subluxation —  which compromises your body’s ability to function as it needs to. Every chiropractor’s goal is to remove these subluxations, since they can both cause pain and impede feeling, Helfrich says.

These adjustments help more than just back pain. The lumbar region (your lower back) is a huge hub for the nerves that extend into your reproductive regions. Removing lumbar subluxations can improve nerve flow to your sexual organs, increasing things like blood flow to your clitoris or, for your husband, the penis.

Nerve signals flow like a two-way street, in other words after an adjustment your organs send messages to the brain more easily. This means that you not only do you become physically aroused faster, but your brain also registers that ready-for-action, heightened sense of pleasure more quickly, so you move past the mental obstacles that may be keeping you from orgasming, Helfrich explains.



A Key Adjustment for Better Sex

Below your brain stem, there is an area of vertebrae known as C1 and C2. “Libido and fertility require a delicate balance of estrogen, progesterone, and other hormones, many of which are released in the upper cervical and neck area,” he explains. If there are any blockages right out of the brain, the impingement up there will have an effect all the way down. Fertility is affected by the nerves and hormones coming out of the spine, as they control your reproductive cycle.

Beyond the physiological benefits of adjusting your spine, chiropractic adjustments can also simply give your muscles more range of motion. This means you can try previously impossible positions under the sheets.



“We want to improve people’s health, and health is about living life as its intended. Having a great sex life is huge part of that,” Helfrich adds. No arguments here!
