THE PROPER FUNCTIONING OF YOUR STOMACH.
A PERSONAL TESTIMONIAL FROM DR. JOE
I once had a T-5 SUBLUXATION and I didn’t know it. The 5th Thoracic spinal nerve goes through a nerve plexus and controls the proper function of your stomach. It happened when I was a Police Officer in the Village of Fishkill, NY. I was rear-ended while stopped at a traffic light. There was no damage to my vehicle, the “tap” was that slight, but I felt a pain in my mid-back between the shoulder blades. That night I took my parents out to dinner. It was their Anniversary. I remember that I ate the broiled sea scallops. They were great! After dinner, while I was walking to the car, I threw up in the parking lot of the restaurant. I thought I had a “stomach bug”.
Fortunately, at this time I was going to a chiropractor regularly and my next appointment was in two days. The next morning I had sausage and eggs and had to run to the bathroom to throw up again. That afternoon I had a hotdog for lunch (this is before I cleaned up my diet!) and could barely keep it down. I was actually getting weak from lack of protein.
The next morning I saw my chiropractor. I told him about the accident, what I had eaten, and the vomiting. "Hmmm” he said, “It sounds like achlor-hydria (lack of sufficient stomach acid) due to a subluxation.”
He knew just where to check, the fifth thoracic vertebra, and sure enough, it was subluxated. Spinal nerve interference is called “subluxation”. He gently adjusted this bone and said “There, I’ve gotten it, go home and enjoy some protein.” That night I had a steak (protein) for dinner and I had no digestion problems.
I have not had a stomach problem since.
