Most problems are due to: – Stress, Poor diet, Bad eating habits
Genetics, Toxins & additives, Antibiotics, Drugs & Alcohol. Osteopathic treatment can often be helpful. The autonomic nervous system includes both our sympathetic and parasympathetic branches and it has been well researched how these neural “states” affect our digestion. Osteopathic techniques can influence the autonomic nervous system, particularly with treatment to the thoracic spine and ribcage, trying to instil balance between our sympathetic “flight and flight” and parasympathetic “rest and digest” states.
Digestive problems, depending on their underlying cause, may also be helped by osteopathic treatment to the diaphragm and lumbar spine due to the direct anatomical links between these structures and the digestive viscera.
