Pimples, Acne, Skin Glands and Chiropractic

Chiropractics role in Pimples, Acne and Skin Glands

Normal skin health is dependent on proper nerve flow to the kidney, skin and skin glands. The 3rd Cervical Spinal Nerve and 11th Thoracic Spinal Nerve have been scientifically shown to have a heavy influence on skin function.

Each nerve controls a specific area of skin. Including the muscles, blood flow and glands.

Effects of Nerve Interference to The 3rd Cervical and The 11th Thoracic Spinal Nerve as well as Damage to the 3rd Cranial Nerve

The 3rd Cervical Spinal Nerve controls the checks, outer ear, face bones, teeth and tri-facial nerve. Interference with the 3rd Spinal Nerve may result in neuralgia, neuritis, acne, pimples or eczema. The 11th Thoracic Spinal Nerve controls the Kidneys and ureters. Interference with the 11th Thoracic Spinal Nerve may result in Skin conditions such as acne, pimples, eczema or boils. Over time, it has been shown that nerve damage to the 3rd Cranial Nerve results in pimples on the ear. Pimples are a result of abnormal skin gland function or excessive toxicity. Interference to the 3rd Cervical Spinal Nerve or the 3rd Cranial Nerve produces abnormal skin gland function, thus producing pimples on the skin. Interference with the 11th Thoracic Spinal Nerve results in abnormal Kidney and ureter function, which builds up toxins in the body. As the skin glands release excessive toxins, pimples may result.
