Zone 6



Circulation System

This zone includes the heart, arteries, veins and the lymphatic system (mini-trash cans). These 60,000 miles of circulatory pathways carry nourishing oxygen from the lungs to all parts of the body. It carries carbon dioxide waste and other toxic metabolites from all parts of the body to lungs and kidneys for elimination. It carries nutrients absorbed in the mouth, stomach, and intestines throughout the body to produce the energy and “building blocks” needed to repair the tissues that make up the body. 

The circulatory zone also carries the hormones released by the glandular zone. Just like the engine in your car, without proper oil circulating through, it would seize up and stop working. The lymphatic system is like a daily oil changing system, collecting waste from the arteries and veins. It is then dumped in the lymph nodes, where white blood cells clean-up any debris and purify the lymph fluid, which is finally dumped back into the arterial-venous system. 

Since the lymphatic system has no pump (like the heart), it is particularly dependent on the muscular zone to move the fluids around. Bed-ridden patients may develop bed sores due to the lack of movement in the lymphatic portion of the circulatory zone. 

Physical, mental, or chemical stress can cause a disturbance in the brain center as well as a spinal misalignment or subluxation in the circulatory nerve channels. This disturbance interferes with the proper brain/nerve signals traveling to your circulatory zone organs creating a multitude of dis-ease and problems.

An Unbalanced Zone 6 can cause symptoms such as…

Thyroid Conditions, Blood Pressure Issues, Heart Problems, Headaches/Migraines, Cold Hands, Cold Feet, Poor Circulation.

To balance this zone…

Dr. Nilles will perform a zone 6 specific adjustment as well as inform you, the patient, what you should expect from that treatment. He will hand you a Zone 6 Sheet which describes exactly what you should be looking for as a result of this very specific adjustment. Dr. Nilles will instruct you to read the zone sheet right before bedtime. It’s part of the treatment.

Balancing this zone usually takes 8-12 visits over a 4 week period of time. Its like learning to play the piano; if you played once, you wouldn’t expect to play 10 songs beautifully right away. Balancing this zone takes some time and it takes adjustments.

Once this Zone is balanced you can expect…

  • Perfect Circulatory Health
  • normal functioning thyroid gland
  • normal cardiovascular function
  • normal lymphatic function (elimination of toxins and waste matter)
  • perfect working heart and lungs
  • excellent blood flow to all organs and tissues
