Every organ and its functions are controlled by the nervous system. That includes our movement, our heart beat and blood flow.  If the spine is not in the proper alignment, the nerves that exit from the spinal cord will experience interference, thus not able to support the function of our body, organs, tissue and cells. This is why it is important to check your nervous system, it is the most important system of the body!

  1. Some people tell me they think sleeping is a waste of productive time. Sleeping the bare minimum amount is the way to be most productive. I’m not sure I agree with that. Is there any research that indicates more sleep is better than less? How do you know you’re not getting too much sleep?

    1. In our opinion, sleep is a way for the body to heal itself from stress, toxins in the environment/food and physical trauma. A lot of metabolic activities happen while we sleep that are essential for daily living. The recommended sleep time for an average adult is about 7 hours 🙂
