Most people don’t realize how many problems throughout the body are directly related to spinal health. Because our nerves transmit signals from the brain to every other part of the body, when these signals are disrupted due to a subluxation in the spine the effects can go far beyond back pain. These subluxations, or misalignments of the vertebrae, can affect everything from your blood pressure to your digestive system and more.
Today on The Dhru Purohit Podcast, Dhru talks to Dr. Jeremy Brook, a chiropractor, yogi, and movement specialist. Dr. Brook is the founder of The Life Center Chiropractic—a unique healing center that incorporates the disciplines of chiropractic, spinal corrective protocols, yoga, and other movement art forms to make sure the spine, body, and mind are aligned. He is also the founder of The Yoga of Chiropractic Adjusting Seminars, the newest addition to the chiropractic training movement, and the author of The Spinechecker’s Manifesto: Drug-free Secrets to Pain-Free Living, More Energy, Anti-Aging, and Better Sleep.

If I had to pick one supplement that has made the biggest difference in my overall health, it would be magnesium.
