High Blood Pressure and Your Spine

The nerves that exit your upper back control your heart, lungs and blood pressure. If you have upper back problems it is likely that you will suffer with respiratory problems like aqsthma or allergies, blood pressure regulation problems or flat out cardiac problems, like a heart attack. Watch Joy tell in her own words, her success with hypertension.

Some may think that's an audacious claim. Your spine can cause a heart attack? That's exactly what Dr. Winsor, an MD in Pennsylvania thought. He set out to determine whether it could be true. He did autopsies on 75 bodies.

As Dr. Winsor Wrote:

The object of these [dissections] was to determine whether any connection existed between minor curvatures of the spine, on the one hand, and diseased organs on the other; or whether the two were entirely independent of each other.

The University of Pennsylvania gave Dr. Winsor permission to carry out his experiments. In a series of three studies he dissected a total of seventy-five human and twenty-two cat cadavers. The following are Dr. Winsor’s results:

There was nearly a 100% correlation between “minor curvatures” of the spine and diseases of the internal organs. Let us examine some of these disease categories:

  • Heart Disease

All twenty cases with heart and pericardium conditions had the upper five thoracic vertebrae (T1-5) misaligned.

  • Lung Disease

All twenty-six cases of lung disease had spinal misalignments in the upper thoracic.

  • Stomach Disease

All nine cases of stomach disease had spinal misalignment in the mid-thoracic (T5-9) area.

  • Liver Disease

All thirteen cases of liver disease had misalignments in the mid-thoracic (T5-9).

  • Gallstones

All five cases with gallstone disease had spinal misalignments in the mid-thoracic.

  • Pancreas

All three cases with pancreas disease had spinal misalignments in the mid-thoracic (T5-9).

  • Spleen

All eleven cases with spleen disease had spinal misalignments in the mid-thoracic (T5-9).

  • Kidney

All seventeen cases with kidney disease were out of alignment in the lower thoracic (T10-12) area.

  • Prostate and Bladder Disease

All eight cases with prostate and bladder disease had the lumbar (L1-3) vertebrae misaligned.

  • Uterus

The two cases with uterine conditions had the second lumbar (L2) misaligned.

Published Research

Dr. Winsor’s results were published in The Medical Times and can be found in any medical library.
