    Yes exactly. You’re risking this at absolute no benefit to your health. Pretty stupid if you ask me.

    There is a proven link between neck manipulation and stroke. And no I don’t drink or do drugs. But at least those things give you a benefit for the risk! Chiropracty is all risk no benefit.
  4. Who cares either way lol this seems like a non issue.
  5. Yes but it’s all about doing it because you genuinely enjoy it. I love swimming and walking. And I don’t put pressure on myself to excercise at all. I don’t even really use that word in my mind anymore I just use “movement” instead. Because of my eating disorder I also have had a bad relationship with the concept of excercise where I either obsess over it or don’t do it at all. Once again it’s about balance and your mindset. You have to enjoy your method of being active. If it feels like a chore then you won’t wanna do it and it’s a negative experience when you do. And if you’re doing it because you want to lose weight and only that, it’s not motivating either. Here’s a good link: https://www.health.com/nutrition/intuitive-eating
  6. I already replied in the other thread lol but these are two different topics no need for crossover drama. I’m not like mad at you or anything lol I’m just passionate about that topic. Anyway. How do I handle cravings? I give into them and enjoy them. It’s okay to eat “junk food” sometimes. If you try to fight off the craving, you’re probably gonna give in and eat a large amount of the food you were resisting. If you embrace it, you’ll eat a moderate amount and enjoy it and move on, and it’s not going to make or break your health. I’ll try and find you a good link that gives like an overview about intuitive eating. Edit: also keeping yourself fed in the first place is a great way to prevent those cravings that are hard to control. When you are hungry you can’t think straight. Cravings are a natural response to hunger. The hungrier you are, the more intense your cravings get and the harder it is to control. So at the first signs of physical hunger, eat! Then you won’t get to that point.

    NONE of this changes the FACT that chiropracty has no benefit and is harmful. Your personal experience literally means nothing. And again, it’s the physio that’s helping you. Not sure how many times we have to go over this. It’s not just me telling you... several people in this thread agree. But you’re wilfully ignoring that too. Just like you’re never going to read the EVIDENCE and studies that exist. Good luck don’t get a stroke
  8. I have had an eating disorder since I was 12 and I have been underweight and overweight from my eating habits, and everything in between. I started receiving treatment for eating disorders last year and I have learned a lot. The biggest thing is that diets simply don’t work. Studies show that nearly everyone who goes on a diet will gain back the weight. Like 98% of people. Many also gain back more than when they started. Diets are more likely to cause weight gain in the long run rather than weight loss. They are hard to stick to because you are depriving yourself and the natural biological response is to be hungry and want to eat. But then people blame themselves for “caving” when really your body is asking for food because it needs it. What works is having an overall healthy relationship with food. Depriving yourself on a diet and then feeling like you failed is the opposite of that. For me I have been practicing “intuitive eating” which simply is eating when you’re hungry, and stopping when you’re full (well there’s a more to it than that but that’s the jist, nutrition is a factor in that too). In time your body finds it’s natural healthy weight and mentally you learn to feel better about yourself and your body. Intuitive eating/mindful/conscious eating or anything similar is a really common tactic taught in eating disorder recovery but really it can help anyone who struggles with dieting. Google it if you’re interested, there’s lots of info out there. It has changed my life and my relationship with food for the better.

    She’s putting herself at risk and promoting putting others at risk including her daughter. It doesn’t just effect her.

    I thought you were done replying? Your doctor reccommending it means nothing. Doctors are people, they aren’t all-knowing. Also your doctor may get a kickback from referring patients to a chiropractor. Your anecdotal evidence of recommending it to people who like it means nothing either. We already covered the placebo effect. You haven’t looked at the actual proof, have you? There is an undisputed proven link that neck manipulation from a chiropractor can cause a stroke. And again I’m glad so far you’re fine, doesn’t mean you’re not putting yourself at risk. @Xbob42 explained that pretty well above. You’re just being wilfully ignorant at this point. You have seen a chiropractor your whole life, yet you had worsening spine problems and had to have surgery in adulthood. How good can the chiropractor really be? Surgery is what helped you. Physical therapy helped you. Chiropracty did nothing except put you at risk and you continue to do so. It’s your life I guess! Good luck.

    You found a physical therapist who is helping you. And people have already explained here why it’s covered by insurance. So is other alternative medicine. Doesn’t make it legitimate. And it’s not just a “couple of people on the internet.” Research it yourself and you will see the truth. If you’re gonna continue seeing chiropractors PLEASE do not allow them to do anything to your neck. That’s how you die.

    Yeah link to those actual “studies” not just something copied and pasted from an article with no sources. This is simply more anecdotal evidence with no real proof. Chiropractors help ear infections now? Geeze lmao these claims are getting ridiculous. I can’t believe how many people staunchly support chiropracty despite the fact there is no real proof behind it, especially since the only objective and proven medical fact for this practice is that it can kill you. Really blows my mind. You are smarter than this. Read up on the real medical studies. You are putting yourself at risk at no benefit to you.
