Have you ever wondered...
--what is neuroplasticity?
--how does my brain change and how does it affect me?
--what is cortisol and what does stress have to do with it?
Dr. Tony Ebel describes subluxation as being stuck in stress mode. I really like this idea of subluxation or misalignment - going into stress mode and not being able to get back to non-stress mode. This is a great illustration of what subluxation is.
It would be similar to putting your car in neutral and then pressing the pedal to the medal. You'll use a lot of energy and not get very far.
Subluxation leads to increased cortisol levels which leads to adverse affects on the brain – specifically pre-frontal cortex, anterior cingulated and the hippocampous. This leads to dysregulated brain wave patterns that become ‘hard wired’ through neuroplasticity.
