Defense physiology means a person is operating in fight or flight most of the time. Fight or flight is a response to an environment that is stressed chronically. You literally operate as if you are being chased by a dog all day and you have to run from it or turn around and bop it in the nose. The problem with being in defense physiology all the time is that it leads to your body running down , wearing out, getting sick, and ending with chronic illness.
I heard Jill Farmer speak today at the St. Louis Master Mind group and she was talking about time management and how we lie to ourselves and tell ourselves their is not enough time in the day to get it all done. The lie is that their actually IS enough time in the day and it’s all about the neurology of your thoughts. Meaning, if you start making certain changes to self-talk, organization, prioritization, and some other skill sets you can actually start accomplishing a lot more each day. It was fascinating!
So it was during her talk today that she eluded to being in fight or flight most of the time and how that adversely affects our thinking and ultimately how successful we are and how much we achieve. It was very interesting and something that connected the dots to the theories of Bruce Lipton, renowned epigeneticist who said,”a cell cannot simultaneously exist in a state of defense and growth at the same time”.
Think about it, if a basketball team is on defense all the time, are they going to score any points? So on a cellular level, if the cell (brain cell)- neuron; is just trying to survive, how can it grow? How can it achieve? How can we prosper and live optimal vital lives?
You can’t. You wont. without making changes to the neurology of the body- the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves, sensory nerves, motor nerves, autonomic nerves, sympathetic and para-sympathetic nerves. The changes are made most effectively and efficiently with the chiropractic adjustment. Adjusting the spine and stimulating ALL of those pathways previously mentioned can be done instantaneously with an adjustment.
Additionally, we can measure scientifically how much stress is in your autonomic system and how much tension is in your motor nerve (muscle) system. sEMG and HRV diagnostic tests demonstrate how efficiently your nerve system is operating and how deeply stress has penetrated into your body.
