General Health Information From The Hinterland Chiropractic Team On The Gold Coast: What Happens When You Quit Smoking?
There is no better time to quit smoking than right now. Believe it or not, in less than 20 minutes after smoking your last cigarette, your body already experiences the benefits of kicking the habit.
Your blood pressure, pulse rate, and temperature, for instance, start to return to normal within 20 minutes after quitting. 12 hours after, carbon monoxide level which is abnormally high in smokers decreases as your blood oxygen increases to near normal levels.Continue Reading →
The Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) controls organ function and overall balance of the body. The ANS adjusts or modifies body function in response to things like stress, regulating the heart, blood pressure, and breathing, stomach function, salivation, insulin level, and sexual function.
The ANS has generally been divided into two parts, the sympathetic nervous system (SNS) and the para-sympathetic nervous system (PNS). The SNS is the bodies “flight or fight” mechanism, which kicks in in times of stress. The PNS is the “rest and digest” system, which is responsible for longer-term functions such as digestion.
These systems need to work in harmony and synergy with the SNS being something like a gas-pedal and the PNS being similar to a brake.Continue Reading →

Our posture is one the most important factors in determining the state of our spine.
Having a correct posture can mean all the difference between a healthy and a deteriorating spine. However, it is a fact that we tend to take our posture for granted. We only notice it when we already begin to feel ailments with our back and neck.
In such cases, several tests would need to be conducted. After the tests, your Chiropractor Gold Coast then provides you with a detailed diagnosis, as well as course of treatment. By that point, however, you will have already felt ailments or pain, and the tests (and analysis of the said tests) will also take some time.
That’s where having spinal and postural examination in Gold Coast can help you.
