Thanks to my patient for sharing this basic yet vital post-adjustment information!
After a holistic chiropractic session, many toxins will be released from the tissues, muscles, and joints. This is a good thing, except that we then must move these toxins out of our bloodstream and out of the body. This requires A LOT of water, more than what is normally required, which is half our body weight in ounces of water per day.
If we do not drink enough water and keep our bodies moving via exercise or simply walking to eliminate these toxins, we can develop a number of nasty post-adjustment symptoms. These symptoms include muscle and joint soreness, headaches, fatigue, nausea, brain fog, and even cold and flu-like symptoms.
Over the years I have heard many of my patients report post-adjustment symptoms like these. They often wonder what is going on. Drinking plenty of water after an adjustment can drastically reduce all of the above symptoms. So can moving your body and exercising. I recommend to all of my patients going on a walk at some point after their session that day.
