How often do you hear someone talking about boosting their immune system so that they will not get sick?
Of course, the first line of defense is choosing a healthy lifestyle to support immunity. This includes reducing stress, fueling yourself with a healthy diet, getting moderate exercise and more sleep. Don’t forget to also limit alcohol intake and consider quitting smoking.
But did you know that Chiropractic care can also be used to boost your immune system?
Chiropractic focuses on the structural and functional integrity of the nervous system. The nervous system includes the brain, spinal cord, and the extensive network of nerves responsible for controlling, regulating, and monitoring all bodily functions. Every system, organ, tissue, and cell is touched in some way by the nervous system’s organizing power. That means the immune system too!
In fact, it has been shown in many studies that Chiropractic adjustments trigger an increase in immune function!
Our practice patients have remarked on a significant decrease in sick days, milder symptoms, and decreased duration of colds, sinus congestion, stomach viruses, and sore throats. Remember, the immune system is our natural protection against more serious conditions and diseases, including cancer.
So, if fewer sick days this cold and flu season sounds nice, why not try boosting your natural defenses with chiropractic care and a healthy lifestyle?
