Cardiovascular system & Atlas vertebra

Cardiovascular system & Atlas vertebra

Have you ever had the feeling that your brain is not receiving enough blood? Have you avoided telling your doctor about this feeling for fear of being considered crazy? Many people end up living with hypertension and a scarce circulatory system functionality for this reason. But then, can you take drugs without worrying?
Instead of trying to suppress symptoms with drugs, wouldn't it be better to eliminate the possible cause of the problem once and for all? One of the causes could lie in the fact that the Atlas is out of alignment, having a direct or indirect impact on the blood vessels.

Cardiovascular system

The circulatory system is divided into two circuits that can be considered separately: the large system that fuels the body and the small system that permeates the brain. Besides the heart, also the brain needs a considerable amount of blood, therefore both sides of the neck are provided with an arterial flow and a venous flow.

Consequences on the small system

clessidra rotAn Atlas out of alignment can cause a constant anomalous pressure on the blood vessels that should guarantee an adequate permeation of the blood to the brain. This compression mainly involves: the vertebral artery that transits in the transverse sinus of the Atlas, the internal carotid artery that passes right in front of the Atlas after exiting from the base of the cranium, as well as other vessels that pass through the jugular foramen, for example the internal jugular vein.
If, due to an Atlas out of alignment, the blood flow to the brain is reduced, the encephalon receives less oxygen and nutrients. This condition can trigger various symptoms such as: hypertension, swinging pressure, headaches or migraines, vertigo, chronic fatigue, quick exhaustion, difficulty in concentrating and visual disorders.

Consequences on the large system

The voluntary movements that contract and relax the muscular system produce a totally normal temporary pressure on the surrounding vasal tissues. An Atlas misalignment causes postural damage that leads to permanent muscle tension, mostly of the locomotor system.
In a muscular tissue permanently contracted, the blood flow is reduced as well as the amount of oxygen and nutrients. In turn, the reduced drainage of metabolic products can cause loss of strength and sudden ache of the area involved.
This is not all... an Atlas misalignment can increase the general risk of lesions, in particular during physical exercise: due to the decrease in permeation and increase in stress, ligaments and tendons can become less elastic and therefore weaker.
Of course, the heart plays a primary role in the vascular system. The heart is the pump of the circulatory system and at the same time the clock that sets the rhythm, which is regulated by the autonomic nervous system (vagus nerve) and by the baroceptors in the tissues.
If vessels, nerves or baroceptors are compressed due to muscular contractures or an Atlas misaligned, the circulatory system can be affected by various symptoms, such as: irregular blood pressure, hypertension difficult to control, irregularities of the circulatory system or alterations of the cardiac rhythm, increase in the cardiac frequency and decrease in the capacity of the cardiovascular system.
Did you know that the circulatory problems described above, which affect many people, can simply be due to a mechanical alteration of the musculoskeletal system and not a decompensation to be cured through drugs?

Do you really believe that drugs can eliminate the cause of your disorders?

The wrong position of the Atlas, among other things, can compromise the blood flow from the brain through the jugular vein. As mentioned, venous blood removes toxic substances and metabolic waste. The anomalous compression of the blood vessels limits this process, thus causing various symptomatologies.
What happens if toxic and waste substances remain in the encephalic tissues? How can a drug resolve this kind of problem?
Below is an ultrasound scan showing the variation of the lumen of the jugular vein before and after the correction of the Atlas.

In the image, the blue zone represents the blood flow of the jugular vein. In the ultrasound scan on the left, the flow is equal to 44.9 cm/s, while in the one on the right, after the correction of the Atlas, the jugular vein is no longer compressed and its flow increases to 81.5 cm/s. We can state that the blood flow from the brain improved significantly.

High blood pressure (arterial hypertension)

One of the causes of high blood pressure lies in an excessive vascular resistance, which can be due to various factors.
Besides arteriosclerosis often diagnosed by traditional medicine, another possible cause of high blood pressure, for example, can be the malposition of the Atlas.
An Atlas misalignment can cause the narrowing of blood vessels due to compression, or it can damage the functions of the vagus nerve, a part of the parasympathetic system, which consequently does not carry out its function of antagonist of the sympathetic system properly, causing high blood pressure.
To ensure that the brain receives enough blood, the body activates a self-regulation mechanism and increases its blood pressure.
When high blood pressure is caused by an Atlas misalignment, it is clear that correcting the latter's position through the ATLANTOtec method, the pressure is restored to its normal parameters.

Low blood pressure (hypotension)

frecciagiuLow blood pressure involves values below 110/60 mmHG.
In traditional medicine it can occur that even the most accurate diagnostics is unable to identify the causes of this disorder. Generally speaking, low blood pressure is what doctors desire (in particular, cardiologists), because low values protect the vessels and the heart.
People affected by this pathology can suffer from various disorders: lack of energy, lack of strength and strong need of sleep. Hypotension can be related to the involvement of the neurovegetative system, that is a malfunction of the vagus nerve, which in fact can lead to low blood pressure.
An Atlas misalignment can also cause nerve malfunction or poor hormonal control, consequently leading to a reduction of vascular resistance, a factor that can contribute towards the development of hypotension.
In many cases it has been reported that the correction of the Atlas through ATLANTOtec has enabled to restore blood pressure to its normal parameters and people affected by the pathology have regained vitality and
