Immune System

The immune system works 24 hours a day, seven days a week to destroy any useless and dangerous bacteria, virus, splinter, dirt, dead cells, germs and even cancer. The body has a vast arsenal of weapons to protect itself, ranging from skin to urine. Each one of these weapons serves a function by keeping the body free of any unwelcome intruder. But what is powerful for good body function can also be a potent disaster. An unhealthy immune system can overreact and attack the very body that it was meant to protect and serve.

Vaccinations And The Immune System

The most pertinent damage to the immune system is thought to be childhood vaccination.  Not only is it widespread, but also it has grown increasingly more common as we learn more about its possibilities. This may be the cause for so many once rare diseases such as lupus, severe allergies, arthritis, cancer and chronic fatigue syndrome are now so common. It is thought by some medical professionals that mumps and measles are being put at bay for leukemia and cancer.

Nutrition And Exercise

Vitamins A, B-6 and C have been shown to have immune-enhancing substances.  They have been linked to strengthening the natural protective mechanisms of the body, especially the immune system. In 1991 researches found that vegetarians have stronger immune systems, with more than double the ability of white blood cells to fight cancer than non-vegetarians.

Exercise speeds recovery from colds and boosts the immune system.  Studies showed that walking 45 minutes per day would speed the recovery from the common cold, as opposed to not exercising.

Emotions And The Immune System

Happy people are healthier people. Depression causes a weakening of the immune system. Holding in feelings causes emotional stress, which in turn suppresses the optimal function of the body’s immune system. Love and companionship have been linked to an increase in the level of immunoglobulin A, which is the body’s natural defense against colds and viral disease.

The Chiropractic Approach

Laboratory research has shown that chiropractic care improves immune function. Keeping the spine healthy through chiropractic care increases your ability to keep your immune system functioning normally, and gives you a better chance at leading a healthier life.

Our chiropractic office educates our patients in lifestyle changes that compliment their spinal care. Chiropractic spinal adjustments strengthen areas of the spine and restore impaired nerve flow. Subluxations occur when vertebra misalign irritating delicate spinal nerves. Spinal adjustments remove the nerve pressure and restore function to the body. Chiropractic spinal adjustments by our chiropractors help you live your life to its fullest through a properly functioning nervous system. When your nervous system is functioning properly you express life to your fullest. Chiropractic spinal adjustments enable you to express your God given health potential and to live your life to fullest capabilities. Neck pain, back pain, sciatica, reduced immunity, ear infections, decreased energy, stomach disorders, asthma, allergies, sinus problems, headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, shoulder problems, sports injuries, spinal disc degeneration, osteoarthritis, numbness, pain, are just some of the signs of improper function in the body and conditions that benefit from Chiropractic spinal adjustments. Don't delay and wait for a spinal problem to develop before you seek out Chiropractic care. Get a Chiropractic spinal adjustment and deal with the cause of your problems rather than masking it with medications which often deal just with the symptoms. Whether you are feel great and want to ensure a healthy and fully functional future or if you are in pain and seek the safe and effective proven results of Chiropractic spinal adjustments, you owe it to yourself to have a spinal check up and to start down the healthy road of lifetime Chiropractic care.
