Learning to Trust Your Intuition

Unleashing the Power of Self-Healing from a Health Perspective

In today’s fast-paced world, we often find ourselves bombarded with information and advice on how to maintain good health and well-being. While scientific research and medical advancements play crucial roles in healthcare, there is another aspect that should not be overlooked–trusting your intuition. Our intuition, that innate inner voice, holds immense potential to guide us towards better health outcomes. In this blog, we will explore the significance of trusting your intuition, backed by current research, while incorporating chiropractic principles of the nervous system, adaptation, and self-healing.

Chiropractic care is a holistic approach to health that focuses on the relationship between the spine and the nervous system. According to chiropractic principles, a properly functioning nervous system enables the body to adapt and promotes and facilitates self healing. Learning to tap into your intuition or gut feelings helps you to make great health choices.

When your nervous system works unimpeded this serves as a bridge between our physical and mental well-being, constantly relaying information and coordinating bodily functions. Studies have shown that the gut-brain connection, a network of neurons lining our digestive system, plays a vital role in our intuitive decision-making processes. The “gut feeling” that we often experience can be attributed to the intricate communication between the gut and the brain.

When you approach a decision intuitively, your brain works in tandem with your gut to quickly assess all your memories, past learnings, personal needs, and preferences and then makes the wisest decision given the context. In this way, intuition is a form of emotional and experiential data that can lead to wonderful health outcomes when tapped into.

When people first start care they will often ask in what they can do to help to support their chiropractic care. Annoyingly we will often reply ‘listen to your body’. This can often be met with blank looks. What we encourage our people to do is start to tap into what the body is already trying to tell you. Your body will innately be giving you signs and signals which help you to make the right choices. Learning to listen out for these, helps you to work in harmony with the body’s natural ability to self heal and organise.

What you will find is that innately you will know what foods best support your health by noticing what builds energy, supports your sleep and enhances your healing. You will start to notice what movement and exercise best supports your mood, body and rest. You will notice also what detracts from these. You see we are all so different, and what works for one person will not necessarily work of the next.

We can all relate to a situation when we have eaten food that has made us sluggish, or uncomfortable, or perhaps when we have moved our body in a way that has hurt us or left us feeling ‘smashed’. The trick is to understand that this is our ‘gut’ so to speak letting us know what builds us up and what breaks us down. The trick is to be attentive to these signals, and adapt and act accordingly. Have you ever noticed that you crave certain foods at certain times, stop and have a think what your body is actually doing? Innately the body is always trying to bring balance and harmony back, and bring us back to a state of homeostasis.

Trusting your intuition can be a powerful tool in your journey towards improved health and well-being.

In the realm of chiropractic care, the principles of the nervous system, adaptation, and self-healing intersect with the concept of intuition. By listening to that inner voice, we can tap into the innate intelligence of our bodies, making choices that support our well-being.

While scientific research continues to explore the intricate relationship between intuition and health, embracing the power of intuition allows us to become active participants in our healing journey, promoting a balanced and holistic approach to health.
