“Simple formula is that when you have a fully functioning central nervous system then the entire body functions better and stronger. No interference in the nervous system means no interference. Plain and simple, people are healthier when they are receiving Chiropractic care. The more clear your nervous system is then the better your brain can communicate with all your vital organs”.

HEALTH RESEARCH REPORT
There are over twenty million people in the United States with diabetes mellitus. In both economic terms and human health, it is one of our nation’s most costly health conditions.
Diabetes is the leading cause of blindness and kidney failure. It shortens average life expectancy by up to 15 years and is a major risk factor for heart disease, stroke, and birth defects, which costs the nation in excess of $100 billion annually in health- related expenditures.
Doctors of Chiropractic have been correcting spinal interference in patients for over 100 years, resulting in the recovering and improvement of almost every known health problem.
In the year 2011, 847 million dollars was spent on diabetes research in the United States, none of which was spent on research related to Chiropractic. Chiropractic must be explored and researched as a way of both preventing and improving Diabetes on both a molecular and neurological level. Molecular biology and neuro-endocrinology in a recent study have revealed that insulin deficiency may be due to a breakdown in the communication and signaling mechanisms associated with the central nervous system(Chiropractic) and metabolism(exercise and food).
“Intracellular and intercellular are the basic mechanisms for the regulation of all cells. Disturbances in cell signaling are central to disturbances in insulin secretion and action, which lead to diabetes and to both micro- and macrovascular complications.”

The hypothalamus is part of the limbic system in the brain that maintains homeostasis by way of feedback loops. The neurological and endocrine function of the hypothalamus is responsible for the regulation of many bodily functions including the control of metabolism. Blood sugar levels, temperature, fluid and electrolyte balance, blood pressure, and body-weight are held to a precise value, and though it can migrate from day to day, it usually remains fixed. The hypothalamus must receive inputs about the state of the body, and must be able to initiate compensatory changes as needed in order to achieve the task of maintaining metabolic balance.
Millions of nerve messages from complex areas of the rest of the nervous system are sent to the hypothalamus.
All of these nerve messages allows the hypothalamus to regulate and integrate blood pressure, heart rate, digestion ,respiratory rate, emotional responses, sex drive, behavior body temperature, appetite, sleep cycles, blood sugar levels and the metabolism.
When any type of imbalance is sensed then the hypothalamus corrects it by one of two ways.
1. Sending nerve signals to the nervous system.
2. Sending endocrine signals to the pituitary gland.
“The effectiveness of the hypothalamus to control metabolism and other functions is directly related to the functional capability of the nervous system to be able to send and receive nerve messages and especially to maintain The integrity of those nerve messages as they travel along the spinal cord.”
