I was very honored to be a part of this great article on hyperhidrosis, aka excessive sweating. I hope you will read the whole article. A big Thank-You LifeZette’s Pat Barone for putting this together!
“Hyperhidrosis is most often caused by issues in the sympathetic nervous system — or the ‘fight or flight’ nervous system,” Dr. Jason Nardi, a neuro-structural chiropractor in Raleigh, North Carolina, noted. “This is the part of the nervous system that works without our thinking about it. It mostly deals with regulating the body.
Chiropractic adjustments delivered to the upper and mid-back can lessen perspiration and show promise in arresting excessive sweating, according to Nardi. “By directly stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system — or the rest and digest nervous system — we are able to calm or down-regulate the sympathetic nervous system responsible for hyperhidrosis.”
