A healthy nervous system is essential for you to be able to adapt to your environment. Dr. Robert Zieve states, “We live in a toxic world. The great, majority of chemicals we now take in daily were not on the planet 30 years ago. These toxins become neurotoxins, damaging the nervous system.”
You can control exposure to many toxins by making healthier nutritional choices and avoiding the environmental toxicity found in fertilizers, insect repellent and commonly used household cleaning supplies. Keeping yours and your family’s nervous system healthy can make a difference in your body’s ability to resist and adapt to these toxins, pollen and irritants. Chiropractic check-ups can help.
