Cholesterol/Dyslipidemia

Your body has the very important job of making decisions for you constantly, and sometimes without you even being aware. It's a good thing that many of these biological processes occur at an unconscious level – who would want to have to stop and think every time you needed to digest your food or pump your heart? One job your body has is to regulate the amount of different compounds in your blood, including cholesterol. This is a very complicated process, and it's coordinated by your nervous system. So, it's very important that there isn't any interference or irritation in the nerves controlling these important functions. Doctors of chiropractor check for this irritation and correct it, and this can help normalize the levels of fats in your blood.
